Empower Yourself to Lead and Succeed

Influence is a tool of success – being able to influence or win others to your way of thinking demands respect and allows you the authority to affect outcomes. Too often, we assume only a person of influence can affect it, but influencing others is an art.

However, influencing goes beyond positions of power and encompasses more subtle skills like empathy and active listening. It is rooted in effective communication skills and self-understanding. Learning how to demonstrate authenticity and integrity through your interactions with others and how to have a strong sense of self-awareness lays the groundwork for mastering the art of influence, leading to improved working relationships and increased opportunities to see your ideas grow.

This three-hour instructor-led training event will focus on influence. The program offers workplace tips, self-assessment exercises, real-life scenarios, practice activities, and more.
