Influencing and Partnering Skills

Workshop Aim

Influencing and partnering skills are the basis for success for any consultant or internal staff professional. These skills allow you to form strong business relationships with your "clients" and enable you to impact positively on their thinking and actions. Your success depends on your ability to influence others effectively. You need to find ways in which you can impact on and change the existing paradigms and behaviours entrenched in your organisation. The partnerships you build are equally critical to the value you can add.
