Influencing & Persuasion Skills For Leaders

Influencing & Persuasion Skills For Leaders

- An Australasian Leadership Institute workshop designed and facilitated by Mark Wager

Persuasion is essential to success in our professional lives. With every business, a challenge comes an opportunity to influence an outcome. An ethical application of persuasive skills lets you achieve unmatched results. Whether you need to convince clients to sign a contract, garner support for a proposal, or win new business in competitive bids, persuasive skills are the driving force that will help you accomplish your goals.

In this fast-paced 1-day workshop we go “inside” the persuasive mindset in an attempt to understand how and why it works. We focus on the successful techniques that Leaders use to design compelling messages and explore why some messages are more influential than others.

Who should attend:

This 1-day Leadership workshop is designed for managers who want to strengthen their leadership and communication skills to meet strategic goals. This is also suitable for non-leaders who have been identified as having high potential.


- The principles of persuasion
- How to influence people in senior positions
- Managing your Manager
- Delivering effective presentations
- Communication techniques

Please note this is one of a series of Leadership workshops that have been designed specifically not only to teach participants new skills but also to help them apply those learnings in order to overcome any challenges facing them in the workplace, this means that the places available are restricted in order to allow the participants to receive more individual attention, the workshop will be held at a venue outside of the CBD and away from distractions and finally after the workshop all participants will receive a free coaching session. This approach ensures that the participants have a leadership workshop far more effective than they have experienced previously
