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.
