This two-day leadership course teaches proven strategies to drive rapid and sustainable behaviour change for teams and organizations. By learning how to discover and counteract the complex web of forces underlying resistant organizational problems, you'll be able to make change inevitable.

An Influencer motivates and enables others to change

The best leaders know how to get individuals to work together to accomplish goals. Although we’re routinely trying to alter behaviour, few of us can articulate an effective strategy to create this behaviour change. By drawing from the skills of many of the world’s best change agents and combining them with five decades of social-science research, Influencer Training creates a powerful and portable model for behaviour change.

We often we struggle to enable our colleagues to complete projects on time and on budget, to motivate employees to demonstrate more concern for profitability or following procedures. We work on ways to exert influence, but regularly fall short.

This course teaches proven strategies to drive rapid and sustainable behaviour change. Organizations around the world have turned to Influencer Training to improve bottom-line results like workplace safety, customer service, compliance and profitability.

Learn how to:

  • Identify the high-leverage behaviours you should focus on
  • Diagnose the real causes behind behaviour problems
  • Effectively motivate and enable others – regardless of formal authority
  • Create behaviour-change strategies that yield rapid, lasting results

Influencer is for those managing a small team or leading a large organization, emerging leaders and those without formal authority. The course is ideal for teams and organizations looking to overcome profound, persistent, and resistant problems.

The course uses a combination of live training, compelling videos and useful tools. Engage in extensive in-class practice, group participatin, and personal planning as you learn and develop strategies for resolving tough issues.

Participants receive a Toolkit and copy of the book Influencer.
