Influencing without Authority

Influencing without AuthorityInfluencing without Authority Training

Influencing is a critical business skill. Being able to persuade and get buy-in from those we work with boosts our impact on our organisations by ensuring our ideas are understood and supported by others.

Being able to impact on the behaviour and opinions of colleagues at all levels of the organisation is essential. But many people find it difficult to influence those over whom they have no authority. And senior level support for your ideas can make all the difference when it comes to determining their long-term success.

The Influencing without Authority training session provides a deep insight into the power of influencing. You’ll learn its importance for building, nurturing and sustaining long-term working relationships. You’ll gain insights into your preferred approach to influencing others and how, with a bit of effort, you can flex your style to suit each individual. By the end of the session you will be equipped with a set of skills that will enhance your ability to influence others – whatever their position in your organisation.



‘I thoroughly enjoyed it. I found the webinar, virtual interactive approach to be surprisingly effective. It did not take out a great portion of my day, but gave a short opportunity to reflect & share ideas.’
