The new business environment and the changing nature of organization cultures have created new challenges and demands for the manager, the entrepreneur, the technical professional, the salesperson, the staff employee. Dynamic organizational structures, competitive enterprises in the marketplace and the multiple roles an individual often has within an organization all highlight his/her need to communicate across departmental, functional and organizational structural lines. A recent article in the Harvard Business Review states : “To be effective in organizations today, you must be able to influence people. Your title alone isn’t always enough to sway others, nor do you always have a formal position”.
Sometimes it seems as if today’s “winners” have some kind of magic going for them. They always seem to make just the right impression – even with difficult people – and get exactly what they want. But the ability to persuade others is not a magical gift bestowed on a lucky few. It’s a set of practical skills anyone can learn, practice and master.

You’ll get some valuable insights into your own “Influence Styles”, as well as those of others, as this international consultant, author and businesswoman reveals her “secrets” to you, and shows you how you can acquire the “magic” skills of high-achievers in your field.
