Negotiating, Influencing & Persuading Skills
Who is it for?
This Negotiating, Influencing & Persuading course is for anyone who would like to be more influential and more persuasive in their day to day interactions with colleagues or clients.
In this active and practical programme, you will learn how to make a strong personal impact, the value of great listening and rapport, and how to tailor your message to the person you want to persuade.
Starting with the fundamentals of human communication, we look at the psychology of effective persuasion and handling resistance.
