Course outline

In an effort to provide you with as much value as possible, we’re going to show you how to deliver the key sections of this training course.

What is leadership – When people are new to leadership positions, they typically are cautious about using influence skills. This avoidance often comes from a fear of being seen as manipulating situations. However, these skills are a central part of a leader’s toolkit.

To be able to influence others, your audience will have to really put themselves into the mindset of a successful leader. They’ve got to also understand how people think and behave. In fact, this is one of my most important skills a leader must develop.

Let’s fact a fact: leadership requires action and not avoidance. Use the material provided to explore the main types of influence skills available to leaders. And, examine the relationship between leadership and influence.

If your audience is finding it difficult to grasp these skills sufficiently, you should give personal experiences that capture these skills in action. It’s always a good idea to include a company or industry-specific examples to embed the learning further.

Understanding different leadership theories – Some new leaders can shy away from learning about management theories. This behavior can emerge out of fear of getting lost in academic-speak or from a desire to find practical advice. However, there is a lot to learned from this research and the experiences of other leaders.

Indeed, there is a lot to be achieved when your audience learns about leadership theories (e.g., traits and behavioral perspective). For example, most people may be able to picture the specific attributes or characteristics that will make a good leader. On the other hand, people can equally understand a good leader will behave in particular ways, dependent on the presenting situations. So, both theories have merit and can co-exist to inform leaders.

Once your audience starts seeing a broader picture of leadership skills, you can use the content to turn attention on the area of leadership styles. And, explore the contingency perspective. End this section by reviewing transactional and transformational leadership styles.

Influence zones – Zones of influence are at the center of the conversation on leadership and influence skills.

To start this section by exploring different zones of influence. Then use the material to examine the preference and indifference zone. Follow this by looking at the “legitimate zone.” And, end this section by discussing the influence and non-influence zones.

Nine tactics – First and foremost, your audience will have to understand that the ability to influence others is a core business skill. And, it’s easy to understand why leaders that can influence others are valued. In a nutshell, these leaders get the job done and consistently deliver results.

Many leaders tend to avoid trying to change others so directly and somewhat negate their actual skills. And, though some leaders might try to ignore using them, these skills are what inevitably drive them to success.

As it turns out, there are several tactics leaders can readily employ. The best way to share the nine tactics is to follow the material as provided. The course concludes with a discussion on nine influence skills that course participants can easily use in many situations.
