The Power of Influence: you can learn to convince and influence effectively

This training is available:




When was the last time you did something for someone else even though you didn’t have to? And do you remember what exactly convinced you to do it? 

How do you influence your colleagues? How do you get things done from colleagues?

Influence is omnipresent in your life. And you, like everyone else, have a real power of persuasion. Yet you usually don’t know how it works or what it does to others.
