Think about it. In your line of work, most of your interactions with others call for influencing skills. Whether you are in a leadership position or not, you need to gain support, inspire others, change minds, collaborate or move others to action in order to get things done.
Whatever form it takes, being an excellent influencer makes your job easier. We all want to have influence with the people we work with; at the same time, we are unwilling to be manipulated or to be a manipulator. Invisible Influence explores the science of influencing by maximizing our personal strengths. You won’t manipulate anyone, but instead, will recognize what your invisible influences are and learn to maximize their power.
There are many ways to influence others – and it isn’t about right or wrong – it is about being aware of the impact you have when communicating. It is about adapting and modifying your personal style when you become aware of the impact you are having on other people. Behavior and attitude change are what's important, not changing who you are or how you feel and think.
You will learn how to:
* See yourself as others see you and evaluate your impact on others
* Improve your ability to consciously influence others without being manipulative
* Understand unwritten communication rules and conventions
* Speaking your mind without offending
