You will learn this in Strategic influencing skills

In this training, we get to work on your powers of influence. What works best, and what works less? What do you do (consciously or unconsciously) when the going gets tough? We look at the patterns that arise and how you can act more effectively in challenging situations. You’ll learn the right tools for exerting influence more effectively in a way that suits you best.

Step one: self-reflection. You realise that your behaviour doesn’t always have the right effect, so it’s important to get to know yourself. The course kicks off with an individual coaching session with the trainer to define your learning needs in depth. Then, we zoom in on what you are ready, willing and able to do to influence others. 

The following subjects are covered: 

  • Your practical examples 
  • Your strengths, pitfalls and patterns related to influence
  • Your potential influence-related talents
  • Underlying patterns in others and how to intervene in them
  • Ways of effectively influencing yourself, others and the forces at play
  • Alternative strategic choices 
  • Learning from and with each other 
  • Self-reflection and formulating action points  

New Heroes

During this training you get access to the online platform New Heroes. You will get to work actively with some assignments from the New Heroes learning trips. You can also continue to work on your own personal strength, communication and leadership skills on your own initiative. Everything at your own pace, wherever and whenever you want.

Start and end measurement

This course improves your skills. We can guarantee that. How? Before you start your course, you take a scan. This determines your starting level and helps set the right goals. You receive a personal report. That way, you know exactly where you stand, what you want to accomplish, and how to get there. Your trainer helps you to focus and develop, in order to reach your full potential. After your training is done, you take another scan. This end measurement shows how much you’ve grown, and where you can still develop your skills further.
