The Personal Impact and Influence programme is highly interactive and experiential and is designed to help you develop the flexibility to adapt your behaviour in different situations, rather than reacting out of habit.
Over two modules spanning five days, the programme aims to increase your self-awareness through practical exercises, and explores a behaviour-based influencing model to help you understand your personal impact and influence style.
This was the best course I have ever done. It was run by an engaging team who drew out of me strengths and talents that I had not previously acknowledged. I have put my learning into productive use since. Equally important was that I met a wonderful supportive group of people, with whom I felt safe sharing difficult personal experiences, that I have also learnt so much from.

What will I learn on the Personal Impact and Influence programme?

become more aware of how you come across to others
learn about positive influencing behaviours
