If you know you deserve to be heard, and want to make a difference, actively working on your influencing skills is important.

If you are unable to influence you cannot create anything good in the world. With influence, we get our fair share and we get to inspire change in others.

Today, the notion of influence often has a bad rap — and it helps to reframe our thinking around it: We don’t need to think less of ourselves, we need to think about ourselves less. With more purposeful perspective taking, we shed our limiting beliefs and make our ideas more important to other people.

What we'll cover:

• Characteristics of the influential
• Callibrated questions
• Listening to understand
• Framing and the power of metaphor
• Defining an influencing strategy
