Content of Influencing skills

A key factor in obtaining better results is your ability to express your ideas to the right stakeholders and influence them to work with you towards a common goal. Influencing effectively means undertaking deliberate actions that stimulate individuals or groups to respond in a certain way. To achieve this, you will first need to understand how others perceive you and respond to you. Furthermore, you need to be able to tune your influencing style to the personality and interest of others.

  • Power - manipulation - influence
  • Basics of influencing: ten influencing behaviours
  • The power of … believing
  • The power of … feeling
  • Influencing strategy: context, targets and goals determine effective influencing style
  • Inspiring presentations - authenticity as key factor
  • Debating game - experience what works and what doesn't
  • The power of … thinking
  • The power of … will
  • Non-verbal aspects of influencing with impact
