Influencing Skills Training

At Effective Training and Development we deliver Influencing Skills Training that has been informed by decades of experience, our one-day course described as ‘highly recommended’ by independent audit.

Our influencing skills training is broken down into clear, concise, informative and thought-provoking segments.

We take participants through examples of positive influence that have worked for them – who in their life has been a positive influence?

We look in depth at influence at work in all its forms.

From there, our influencing skills training delves into the key skills and attributes for positive influence, how can we influence others. This though cannot be manipulative, manipulative influence will not have long term benefits and often has the opposite impact to the one hoped for. We will look at what manipulative influence is and how to avoid it – both imparting that influence yourself and being manipulated by others.

We will then also run through case work, practice and exercises. 

Influencing Skills Training – Suitable For All Areas Of Life

In total, this creates a course independently described as being an “Engaging presenter talking knowledgeably about an important topic; very useful – would highly recommend” 

The engaging presenter mentioned is Arnie Skelton, who has 30 years’ experience in the field and is an expert in areas of personal development, leadership, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), emotional intelligence and more.

If you are looking to develop your own influencing skills, ensure that you are providing positive influence rather than manipulative and also develop a greater understanding of how others try to influence, then our course is for you.

We can also send a five-minute video to you that outlines further details about the training course for influencing skills.

With influencing skills there is no magic wand that can be waved, no one-size fits-all approach. We will show how important influence is as opposed to authority, making people react positively so that they are on board, and want to follow your lead, rather than acting simply because of the chain of command.

Influencing skills training will help give you the confidence to make decisions and then delegate. For other settings, it will improve your ability to win people round to your side of the argument, your ability to influence decisions that are taken.

Being able to influence in a positive way is one of the key skills in any work place, but these are also skills that are transferable into all areas of life. It could be within the family setting, or it could be when there are unexpected challenges. It could be influencing builders carrying out home improvements on your house, or exerting influence when your plane is cancelled and you look to find a different flight and get the recompense you are entitled to.

There are hundreds of occasions we need to exert influence, our ability to do this in a positive, non manipulative, polite way is essential to success.

The skills and techniques you will learn are universal, they are based on understanding human behaviour and interaction rather than being tied to the workplace. However, it is likely to be the workplace that they are used most often and it is also the workplace where others, knowingly or otherwise, are looking to influence you.

Our influencing skills training is not Jedi mind tricks, instead it is teaching the awareness to know how to present your influence and what to avoid.
