Assertiveness skills are essential for success. Influence is a tool of the successful—being able to affect influence or win others to your way of thinking, demands respect and allows you the authority to affect outcomes. Too often we assume only a person of influence can affect it.

However, influencing goes beyond positions of power and encompasses more subtle skills like empathy and active listening. It is rooted in effective communication skills and self-understanding. Learning how to demonstrate authenticity and integrity through your interactions with others and to how to have a strong sense of self-awareness lays the groundwork for mastering the art of influence—leading to improved working relationships and increased opportunities to see your ideas grow.

This 3-hour instructor-led online seminar will focus on influence and offers workplace tips, self-assessment exercises, real-life scenarios, practice activities, and more.
