The ability to influence is an essential leadership skill that arises almost every day. Some people seem to be able to do it effortlessly whilst others use the power of their position to enforce what they want. Good influencing skills can be learnt and they are key to being able to achieve your goals and objectives.
The Learning to Influence Foundation contains several short and informative tutorials that explain Dr Robert Cialdini’s 'Six Methods of Influence', how to be persuasive in your business negotiations and the five elements to the 'Influencing Star', which include understanding your audience, sharing your vision, learning communications styles, focusing on what is important and keeping your promises.
Once you have completed these tutorials and demonstrated your skill by completing the iCoach elements, you will receive a Certificate of Achievement.
This programme is one element in the 'Communication Skills' Diploma Programme.
