Influencing and Persuading

Influencing is a crucial element of being a great communicator. You already possess innate influencing skills, a lot of which is done unconsciously. To be a really great influencer these skills can be enhanced by moving them to your conscious mind and developing them.

How you put your case across and how you're perceived can have a large bearing on the outcome.

People often ask us:

  • How can I be more persuasive?
