You will learn this in Influencing skills

Your values, instincts and experience allow you to make a unique contribution to your team. Yet bringing that contribution to the table and making an impact requires a specific set of skills. That’s where influencing comes into play. It’s not just about ‘getting what you want’. It’s about building meaningful relationships and being a force for good within your community.

Do you find that your ideas are met with indifference or not taken as seriously as you think they should be? There’s a good chance that your influencing skills could use a boost. This course helps you master the psychological principles of influence, so you can grow your legacy and become a role model that others will want to follow.


  • Your colleagues will see you as a trusted partner with a unique contribution
  • Your colleagues will seek your input and value the perspective you bring
  • Your colleagues will be more likely to get behind your plans and ideas


The course covers topics such as building a rapport that positions you to exert more influence, analyzing the interests, viewpoints, and personalities of others, and establishing trust and using your influence to achieve positive results. You will also learn about the art of 'switching gears' and adapting your influencing style, achieving influence through effective communication and listening, and making a compelling case for your goals and ambitions.
