What you need
There’s no point having all the science or a great idea if you can’t influence anyone to listen. If you’re in sales, you have products and services to sell as part of your job. But if you’re not, you still have to sell your suggestions, your services, and vitally – yourself – in order to achieve your nefarious ends.
What we do
You don’t have hypnotise or manipulate like Kipling’s ‘Kaa’ in order to exercise influence. We’ll help you to find your influencing style and adapt it for challenging situations and people. You can use push (arguing, asserting) or pull (empathising, energising) tactics. We’ll also help you with larger strategies for influencing at an organisational level.
What you get
You will be able to play to your natural strengths and persuade people in all sorts of situations – when you are negotiating, selling, leading, pitching or handling conflict. You’ll know when to push, when to pull and when to walk off into the sunset with swagger.
We love this quote from Clint Eastwood. He highlights two crucial points about influence: first, that you possess it already and second, that in order to succeed, you must wield it with precision. Loud, shouty, aggressive types may have power, and even compliance, but they have little lasting influence, and possibly zero respect. They may even have a scandalous retention problem.
