Course Rundown

Typically we spend a large part of every day influencing one-to-one exchanges with managers, staff and peers. Sometimes the need to influence becomes more explicit when managers are required to present their agency’s policy and programs to less than enthusiastic, skeptical and sometimes aggressive audiences.

Influencing depends on having effective communication skills and the ability to think on your feet, but successful influencing also requires a strategic approach. This involves understanding whose support you need in order to progress the ideas you want to pursue, and knowing how to build and maintain that support over the longer term.

This Influencing Skills In Leadership program by Australian Institute of Management Education and Training can be delivered in a standard format or tailored for in-house delivery to meet particular organizational circumstances. We recommend the program be delivered away from the workplace where possible, to ensure participants are able to focus on the program content and professional development.


ThisInfluencing Skills in Leadership program is aimed at team leaders and middle managers and looks at skills for influencing from a range of perspectives – how to make quick and persuasive pitches to your manager, making persuasive presentations to groups and planning more strategic approaches.

In this Influencing Skills In Leadership course, the subjects you may study include:

  • Types of influencing – verbal persuasion and behavioral approaches; using and developing your power ethically; giving persuasive presentations of all types; influencing tactics and how to combine them into basic styles.
  • Tactics for dealing with opposing views and those who are undecided.
  • Generating enthusiasm through your communication style.
  • Announcing changes and understanding the impact that emotional reactions have on people’s ability to see the benefits of a change and how to work with people who are most resistant to change.
  • The individual verbal and non-verbal communication patterns and processes that work together to make a message compelling.
