Interpersonal & Influencing Skills for Business


The quality of my interaction with others = my success in life!

Critical to our success in business life is the quality of interactions that we have with the people around us – our boss, peers, customers, clients and team members. The quality of our interactions is greatly determined by the effectiveness of the influencing strategies that we employ, and it is these skills that determine how we present and sell our ideas to others, how we operate in meetings, how we deal with conflict and difficult scenarios and ultimately how successful we are in the workplace.

Whether we have thought about it or not, in today’s tough corporate and business environment we all have a brand. In effect, people talk about us at work and what they say about us is in part a big reflection of our brand. Having a brand is not about excessive self-promotion or shouting out about how great we are, it is about thinking about our strengths and how best we contribute to the world of work, and then ensuring that we play to these strengths and let other people around us know what our capabilities and competences are.

This powerful three-day programme provides a unique opportunity for you to participate in a series of experiential exercises that focus on practical behaviours and outcomes. You will work on developing your own personal brand, as well as identifying ways in which you can improve your influence and effectiveness in the workplace.
