About the event

Workshop Aims:

Influence is a key skill for anyone working in modern, matrix organisations. Often a perceived lack of influence leads to deep dissatisfaction in the workplace and beyond. This workshop uses the proven Insights Discovery profile to help classify you and your co-workers and to accurately define practical techniques for influencing them. A number of discussions and practical activities form the day, leading to stakeholder mapping and action planning.

The workshop provides a new perspective on communication and influence in the workplace and offers a simple model, enabling attendees to adapt their communication style to better connect with a wider group of colleagues.

The objectives of the programme are:

  1. To understand how our personality type provides a range of communication strengths and potential weaknesses.
  2. To provide a range of approaches to enable us to better connect and influence a greater range of stakeholder and colleagues. 

The Structure

The workshop is a full day, with a small amount of preparatory work and involves:

  • Short inputs, covering the science and theory, techniques and tools.
  • Reflection, discussion and practice sessions of increasing intensity and challenge, incorporating peer coaching and feedback, and wherever possible working with real situations.

Content is drawn from a variety of sources, including Jungian psychology and the Insights Discoverypsychometric.
