Influencing without Authority
Available in-house UK-wide
For a healthy, creative working environment, ideas need to be taken seriously whether they come from the CEO or a new trainee. This course teaches how to make sure your opinions and ideas have the impact they should, irrespective of your role in the organisation.
Adapted to your group's needs and delivered at your offices
About the course
No matter what their level of seniority, everyone has a legitimate point of view and can come up with useful new ideas and opinions. Unfortunately, for those who lack positional power, it can sometimes be difficult to make these contributions have the impact they should.
But whatever their level of responsibility, experience or expertise, everyone can benefit from turning up their personal and professional influence. Even senior leaders are better equipped to bring people with them if they engage and persuade rather than relying on their status to get their messages acted on.
This workshop offers delegates the opportunity to understand their natural communication style and patterns, and provides plenty of tools, tips and techniques to help them build on or fine-tune their existing influencing skillsets.
Delegates will learn how to be at their most persuasive, influential and effective with or without official authority through a practical approach tailored to the specific challenges identified by the group.

Additional learning resources
We understand that your professional development doesn’t end when you walk out of the classroom. The time you’ve put in will only make a real impact if your learning is carried into the way you work. That’s why we offer post-course support in implementing your new skills, for as long as required. Your trainer is available to discuss problems, provide advice or offer feedback until you feel confident on your own.
This course also includes access to an ‘e-learning pinboard’, a password protected webpage where your trainer has posted articles, videos, interviews and other useful tools around the topic for you to draw on for inspiration and ideas going forward.
