You may not be as influential as you think you are! Most of us believe if we know our topic or if we feel good we must be good. One of the biggest mistakes we make is assuming how we feel determines how others perceive us. This session will give you the opportunity to take a closer look at what’s really going.
Today’s fast-paced business environment requires leaders who can impact and influence others with solid communication practices. But in the world of emails and text messages, it’s easy to overlook the importance of face-to-face communication and the focus, discipline and hard work required to be influential.
Whether you’re influencing one of your employees, delivering a presentation or facilitating a meeting how you deliver determines whether or not others see you as credible, knowledgeable and trustworthy. Without doing this effectively, you inhibit your maximum potential to influence, increase profits and build a reputation you’re proud of.
Workshop leader Stacey Hanke, will teach you how to eliminate the static that plagues communicative delivery. You will learn how to persuade, sell your ideas, motivate and move others to action. She will explain the positive actions you can take to increase your impact and value to your peers, clients and teams. This highly interactive workshop will show you how to immediately implement the influence skills and techniques you learn to your day-to-day conversations.
