"The program has changed the way I approach 'one on one' encounters in my day to day activities" 


"The personal challenge of having to prepare for situations and rehearse them at our sessions was most beneficial to me"

“The format with people from other companies is excellent and our varying backgrounds made the course and feedback very rich.”   


“The power of Influence development process has opened up new possibilities for my continuing career development.  The program initiated changes in my approach to influencing others. I am now more aware of others' needs and objectives."

“The power of Influence 'facilitated' development process is both subtle and yet intensely powerful! I have done a number of leadership and professional effectiveness training programs over the years but none have had such impact on me or have provided a better sustained 'return' on my working relationships and success.
The program allows you to specifically target individuals you wish to work with more effectively and then encourages you to examine your influencing style. You then begin to discover ways you can approach these interactions differently so that you can produce better outcomes. Because the program is based on 'real-life' relationships and situations, you are able to prepare 'just in time', receive feedback and really see changes in your approach and more importantly in your end result!

I have experienced powerful changes in my personal communication style and effectiveness that have significantly impacted my working relationships with my managers, stakeholders and peers. As a result of my own experience, I have since sponsored some of my management team members who have also been able to significantly improve their confidence, effectiveness and results through the program. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who needs to build positive working relationships, and to anyone whose success is dependent on the cooperation and support of others."

“I thoroughly enjoyed the Influence Mastery development process. In the course of practicing and workshopping real life scenario’s I have become blatantly aware of the many opportunities to improve habits that made up my daily communication with peers and managers. As much as it is a guide to successful negotiation, it also enables critical and objective self awareness. Influence Mastery provides a solid foundation that can be readily interpreted yet is challenging to implement and master. I am finding the slow and patient road to mastery, very rewarding.”

"The power of Influence development process taught me as much about myself as it did about negotiation and influence. Having a better understanding of myself has really helped in refining my approach to all important conversations - be they a quick phone call or an annual contract negotiation.
