Stephen Covey says in his book “7 habits of highly effective people” that those individuals who focus their energy on what they have the power to affect are tapping into their potential to positively influence.
By doing this they can establish and maintain good working relationships so that other people are receptive to what they have to say and more willing to consider their suggestions. In this interactive workshop we will explore how to tap into your potential to influence.
We will consider the importance of social skills in effective influence, practise these skills to influence others to achieve an identified objective, and recognise when and how to accept the opinions, values and needs of others to achieve a win/win outcome.
Written in the 1960’s, French and Raven's Bases of Power explains the six forms or types of sources of power that still apply to us today in the workplace. These concepts are sometimes called French and Raven's power model or power taxonomy, but they all mean the same thing. This is often shown as a leadership model but is actually applicable to all us in the workplace regardless of position. All positions carry responsibilities.
