Go Back Influencing & Negotiating Skills | Primary Care

As NHS and other organisations increasingly have to work together to solve common problems, influencing skills are more important than ever.

Influencing is a combination of persuasion and negotiation - being able to persuade others and negotiate to reach an agreement.

Influencing is a vital part of communication at work. Learning to make persuasion techniques more successful will lead to smarter and more efficient working.

Improved influencing skills can support you in:

  • Getting your point of view across and getting things done
  • Persuading others and reaching consensus
  • Successful negotiation
  • Motivating teams and stakeholders
  • Becoming a more effective leader.

"There is only one way... to get anybody to do anything. And that is by making the other person want to do it" – Dale Carnegie

This influencing skills training session includes top tips to make an instant improvement to the way you communicate and to achieve better outcomes. It will enhance your negotiation skills, allowing you to get best value and quality of service for patients and for your organisation, improving job satisfaction and easing tricky situations.
