Compelling business case - 'live' e-class
Influence at work
This 90-minute ‘live’ e-class helps you to identify different approaches to influencing others for a range of different situations.
We all need to influence others, but most people work with just a handful of approaches, so they’re less effective in certain situations or with certain people. Getting this right is a crucial business skill. This interactive and informative workshop will build on participants’ existing skills to produce compelling business cases and provide additional strategies to use.
