Influencing Skills

If you boil down all the qualities of an effective leader you are just left with one quality and that is the ability to influence, leadership is influence, nothing more, nothing less, this comes from none other than the Guru of Leadership, John Maxwell. It takes confidence, self-belief and excellent communication skills to influence.

The ability to influence is not something that you are born with, though some of us may have a flair for influencing. The ability to influence is a skill and skill comes from drill so by changing your mind set and applying specific skills, you can find your own inner power to influence.

This workshop will be useful to you - if you need to gain willing co-operation from others, you lead projects or teams, you have accountability for getting things done through or with other people.
