Being productive in today’s workplace requires us to be effective influencers. Whether trying to inspire a committee to take a certain approach to solving a problem or helping an employee learn to be more successful on the job, influencing skills are often essential. Effective influence doesn’t just happen. Come to this workshop to be introduced to the skills needed so others will want to grant you the power to affect outcomes. Participants will be exposed to techniques to develop and maintain rapport, resolve conflicts and handle difficult situations, and recognize and support others' needs while meeting your own needs as well.  In addition, we will discuss the qualities of influential people, and you will have the opportunity to assess these qualities in yourself.

  • Learn the importance of rapport and developing genuine relationships
