How to Influence People - Personal Development Seminar

Program Description:

It’s impossible to be successful without the help of others — learn how to get them to buy in to your vision.

Your job requires you to influence people all the time. Whether it’s getting buy-in from fellow employees, emphasizing priorities from other departments, or swaying your boss that your idea is the best one, you need to be able to persuade other people. That’s why you can’t afford to miss How to Influence People.

If you’re tired of fighting with your coworkers and want to start getting the support and results you need right away, then don’t wait. Sign up right now — a world of better results and relationships is waiting.

You know your work is important — get others to see it too!

If you want to be effective at your job, if you want to get things done, then one of the most important skills you can have is the ability to influence others. But if you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you’re not a natural salesperson who can bend others to your way of thinking with skill and grace.

Don’t worry, you’re not alone. It’s a difficult skill to master and one that very few people are born with. And that’s why we’ve developed How to Influence People, a one-day course specifically designed to give you the tools you need to start bringing others around to your way of thinking.
