The ability to influence is one of the essential skills for leaders at all levels. It’s more art than science, and it can be tough to get your arms around.  But the bottom line is that influence matters. And as we continue to morph into an interconnected, interdependent, increasingly global workplace, it will matter more.

The facilitator, Rachel Rider will discuss many of the basic principles of influencing others from both the personal and professional perspective.  This workshop will focus on understanding when you uncover a roadblock to work together, engage, and meet the other person halfway.

Influencing others can have different definitions for each individual. Some examples may be individuals that would like to create buy in from colleagues regarding a specific project, an individual contributor that wants the approval from a boss about a specific project, or a manager that would like his/her team to deliver a project that may not be that exciting.

You will learn:

1. How to understand your specific position
2. How to understand the content which the other person is looking for that you're not providing
3. Simple and easy communication tools and techniques to aid you in handling difficult individuals
4. How to create a mutually agreed outcome where everyone wins
