Influencing With Style DISC
Influence processes may involve communication between two people or more, reaching agreement on mutual goals while persuading, influencing and having impact, solving problems, reaching acceptable solutions and compromises or establishing trust and credibility.
Your ability to influence, establish yourself as a trusted proposer, to sell your ideas and negotiate are core skills that you require.
The Influencing with style (using DiSC profiling) training will build your insights, skills, new behaviours and practices that, if applied and practiced, will help you become more proficient in ‘one to one’ or group negotiations and in interactions, where bringing influence to bear is vital. You will begin developing some new behaviours, extra communication skills (based on understanding the motivations of others at meetings).
Influencing and negotiation skills have never been more important. Gaining that extra 10 % of awareness, confidence, skills and insights can be the difference between winning and losing.
In order to harness your business opportunities, Influencing and negotiation skills are becoming part of the core competencies required in organisations, in order to be successful.
Some of the requirements for Influence skills, which may exist with people within your business, may include:
- Getting yourself in a position to try to influence key stakeholders
- Understanding the main driver of a person, when you have limited information.

Negotiation and influence processes involve communications between people. Our goal when influencing is to reach agreement on mutual goals, both for us, and for the other party. The ultimate goal is in persuading, influencing having impact, solving problems, reaching acceptable solutions and compromises, while establishing trust and your credibility.
Your ability to influence, establish yourself as a trusted proposer, to sell your ideas and negotiate is a set of core skills that you require.
This one day training, with a little up front work, and post course learning support and application, will build your insights, skills, new behaviours and practices that, if applied and practiced, will help you become more proficient in ‘one to one’ or group negotiations and in ongoing interactions where bringing influence to bear is vital. You will begin developing some new behaviours, extra communication skills (based on understanding the motivations and needs of others you deal with), either virtually or face to face at meetings).
