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?

This programme is not about learning a set of rules on how to behave but about understanding the difference between your intent and your impact and developing the ability to apply positive influencing behaviours.

By completing this programme, you will:

  • become more aware of how you come across to others

  • learn about positive influencing behaviours

  • become more flexible in how you respond, rather than just relying on habits

  • have more choices when you face conflict or challenge

  • feel more confident in maintaining strong relationships while achieving your objectives.

Is the Personal Impact and Influence programme for me?

This programme is particularly useful for professionals across health and social care, and the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector who want to build on their positive impact. You may be leading teams or working across services and systems and using your influence to achieve change in the following roles:

  • clinician in the NHS, independent or social care sectors

  • head of service or department

  • consultant or doctor leading a service or clinical team

  • manager in the NHS, independent sector or social care system.
