"If you can't convince them, confuse them"
Harry Truman, 33rd President of the United States of America
Isn't it better to quickly learn how to convince and influence others instead of confusing them? And isn't it true that every woman, man, and child attempts to influence others?
Regardless of who, what and why you want to influence, all of us could do with a few more simple influence tools. This one day workshop –will teach you how to get more influence tools, and practice it so that you have more confidence in your ability to influence.
The key topics we'll cover to boost your influence skills are:
- Awareness of your personal brand: believe it or not, we all unconsciously project our beliefs and values to others and this can help or hinder our influence attempts, often before we even start! So we must know, understand and control the hidden signals we send to others.
- What others experience when we influence them: we'll discover how to see things from the other person's perspective and why all humans experience your influence attempts as either a reward or threat to them, which is why they accept or avoid your influence!
- Tools of influence: discover the tools of planned and unplanned influence (unplanned influence is instant influence). Examples of these influence tools are (1) how to ask very simple questions to understand the fears and doubts of the person we want to influence, (2) how to read the other person's general mood, and that person's specific thoughts and feelings about the topic being discussed, (3) how to use special words and language patterns that make influence easier, faster and more effective.
Who should attend?
This workshop will help anyone and everyone who needs a boost in their influence skills, or a boost in their confidence to influence.
