“I was lucky to be able to use the coaching services and the The power of Influence methodology very successfully to help team members work together more effectively. In a very short timeframe the positive changes were very evident and the team is now performing as a fully-functional team and adding value to the business. 


The Power of Persuasion checklist helped team members to understand a better and less confronting way to negotiate our position and increase the chances of a win/win outcome - both within the team and with others outside the team. 


I highly recommend The power of Influence's coaching services.”
