Course Overview

This three week course has been designed to help students become more influential, persuasive, and successful in the workplace and their personal lives. Taken online, the training provides participants with a deeper understanding of the methods used for overcoming resistance in others using techniques such as storytelling, neurolinguistics, planning conversations, mirroring, matching, and more. Learning how to use such methods will teach participants how to achieve all their goals, while still getting on harmoniously and successfully with others. 

The ability to effectively persuade and influence lies at the heart of our personal and professional lives and is key to effective leadership, whether the goal is to convince one person in a face-to-face encounter, influence a group in a meeting, sway entire organisations or win over the broader community. If you're looking to enhance your persuasion skills in order to achieve more of your desired outcomes, then this course will provide you with the confidence, toolkit, and mind-set to successfully collaborate with others, no matter the setting.
