Authentic Influence Program

Identify and apply effective influencing techniques to achieve desired results.

Organisations need individuals who can communicate and influence authentically. People simply feel suspicious when someone doesn’t appear to be authentic, or if they are using manipulation to get what they want.

This module course covers a range of successful techniques for influencing, motivating, inspiring and getting commitment from others... without manipulating them, and explains how we can use these techniques both authentically and confidently.
