Being successful as a professional requires influencing others and gaining their cooperation, particularly when there is no direct or line authority. Without the ability to influence, it becomes harder to achieve targets and meet deadlines, and work becomes more stressful. The people that need to be influenced can be in other departments, customers, suppliers, regulatory authorities, and even superiors in the organisation.

This one-day programme will provide an understanding of how to exert influence plus tools and techniques for becoming more influential in a professional services setting. In addition, each participant will receive personal feedback, which together will create a powerful learning experience.
