Four Week Series: The Influential Leader

Sessions are 9 - 11:30 a.m. for four consecutive weeks. Every training session will have a virtual option.

2023 Sessions:

Session One: Influential Leaders PERSUADE

There are only three ways to get people to do what you want/ need them to do: 1) you can coerce them; 2) you can bribe them; OR 3) you can persuade them. Only persuasion produces long-lasting, positive results. Learn why trust is crucial, and how to recognize and ethically apply the Six Principles of Persuasion

Session Two: Influential Leaders INSPIRE

Influential leaders learn that prompting others to effective action is often more about engaging hearts than winning minds. In this session you will assess your current level of EQ, sharpen your EQ skills and learn how to respond appropriately in a variety of emotionally-charged situations.

Session Three: Influential Leaders COACH

Influential Leaders most often use their powers of persuasion through coaching. Building on lessons drawn from the previous two sessions, this session will help you use your leadership style to be a more effective coach. You will learn strategies to coach through detours and challenges, achieve goals, and still support your team.

Session Four: Influential Leaders PLAN

It’s time for you to take the wheel! During this final hands-on session, you’ll set SMART goals for influencing outcomes. You’ll also craft an action plan that pin points people and resources, sets realistic timelines, and develops measureable milestones.
