Leadership And Influence

Great leaders know how to influence people.

In fact, a leader’s job often includes having to change the attitudes and behaviors of those that they need to follow them. In general, this can be achieved by:

  • Giving praise and honest appreciation when it is due.
  • Calling people’s attention to mistakes – but indirectly.
  • Exploring their own mistakes before criticizing another person.
  • Asking questions instead of direct orders.
  • Letting the other person save face.
  • Praise improvement.
  • Give the person a reputation to live up to.
  • Using encouragement to make any fault seem easy to fix.
  • Make the other person happy about doing as you suggest.

Now with the rapid pace of change facing companies, perhaps more than ever we need leaders who have the skills and the background that will enable them to influence others.

At Oak Innovation, we developed this leadership and influence training because most companies have never learned how to invest in the development of influence skills within their leadership programs.

Just consider the challenges that many leaders face in companies. Many issues arise from situations where leaders have not been able to influence the behaviors, attitudes, opinions, and choices of others.

Caution must be advised from the outset to not confuse influence skills with power. Course participants will learn that are different things and that leading through influence is based on trust.

This training will instruct attendees on the relationship between leadership and influence skills, highlight four main approaches to leadership, discuss zones of influence, and present nine influence tactics.

Developed for new and potential leaders, this leadership and influence training from Oak Innovation can be instantly downloaded and used to present your own training courses.
