Maximising Performance by Influencing and Persuading

An old saying, but true:  “Do what you’ve always done and you’ll get what you’ve always got!”

Have you ever felt that:

  • you have not really understood what is expected of you?
  • you spend more and more time in the office to complete your teams projects?
  • you are having to repeat an instruction several times?
  • you are leaping from one project to another?
  • that someone has missed the point when you communicate with them?
  • you are struggling to put your point across when communicating with colleagues or customers?
  • you have found it difficult to influence someone towards your point of view?
  • you struggle with priorities?
  • you spend more time in meetings than you do producing results?
  • you have awkward or difficult moments with team members or managers which cause you stress?
  • you struggle to build effective relationships with those that may impact on your project or career development?
