UNDERSTANDING MOTIVATORS WORKSHOP
INFLUENCING OPINION WORKSHOP
If you are dealing with people in business, whether presenting plans to senior management or engaging junior staff, selling or promoting, being able to persuade and influence others in a calm and positive way is a valuable asset.
You want to take people with you to where you want to go, happily and persuasively, in a collaborative movement that provides a win/win situation for everyone. You can’t bully people around to your point of view, or order them to agree with you and still maintain a positive workplace. You have an idea and you need to win people to your point of view, you want people to trust you and know it is in their best interest to follow your lead.
You might work with difficult personalities or in a stressful environment, where winning people to your point of view takes real skill. You may not notice where assertive slips over the line to aggressive behaviour. You may be up against pushy people or difficult conflicts with long and complex histories.
The good news is that persuading people and finding compromise in difficult situations is a learned skill. It takes a good and experienced teacher, training and practice.
Dietske Van Kessel has strategies and behaviours that will help you understand what motivates people and how to influence their opinions. With practice, these strategies will become part of the way you work and make dealing with people the most enjoyable part of your day.
