Developing your Influence

For leaders in the middle of an organisation

Leadership is Influence. Leadership is not the title you hold or the size of your pay packet. It's not positional. You don't have to be the boss to lead. A parent at home leads their children through behaviour change. A volunteer team leader gains from others Buy In for a worthy cause. Leadership is our ability to positively influence those around us; it means to shift their understanding, their decisions or their behaviour to a different position. You can be in the middle of an organisation and still lead. It's all about influence. Influence is the very core of leadership and is based on how we handle people, handle ourselves and handle our responsibilities.

Learning the intricacies of leading people does not start when you are the top dog it starts when you are in the middle of an organisation. Learning these transferable skills is the very best way to be promoted.
This training course delivers principles and practises of influence and will equip you challenge you excite you and frustrate you however, if you are serious about making a difference in the world then, this is the course for you.

Prioritising to Achieve

Development of a Leadership habit #1

Prioritising is a leadership skill relevant for everyone but many of us do not attend to the basics just the preferred. And research has found that those leaders who learn to prioritise become leaders in their industry.

The Prioritising to Achieve workshop will, once applied to our everyday, make an enormous difference in our world. Taking a macro and micro view this hands-on practical workshop sees participants identify their heart-felt passions and desires. Participants will identify the most important things to do that give them the greatest return based on their own values and principles and, it ensures they find the pathway forward. By applying a principle centred prioritisation habit to our everyday the results will be a more fulfilling personal life and, a very deep sense of achievement as we stride towards our goals. In this workshop the participant works on themself and is encouraged to put into practise the habit of prioritisation. Honest reflection is encouraged outside of the workshop as they continue to build careers, businesses or teams and families.

Connecting for Business Success

Development of a Leadership habit #2

  • Are you technically highly skilled but struggle to relate to people easily?
  • Do you find yourself nervous about meeting new people and this is affecting your business or work?
  • Do you avoid making sales calls because you are uncomfortable or nervous?
  • Do you experience a level of frustration because staff do not respond to you until you get tough?
  • Are you trying to build a better customer service culture in your team
  • Do you rely on your title or position to get compliance?
  • Have you hit an invisiable lid in your career and you feel like you have missed out on promotions or opportunities?

If you answered yes to one or any of these, it's probable you are experiencing a relational currency challenge resulting in a lack of influence.

The ability to build and maintain rapport is a significant and core relational skill with relevance in every sphere of life. From connecting with a prospect in a networking event to connecting with a staff member to build team, the skills are exactly the same.

The ability to connect is the foundation of influence; a great connection with someone means you have the relational currency in which to influence. If a staff member feels connected to you the leader, you have a much great chance of gaining their support when you need it. Without connection leaders can resort to positional or power influence (threats or bullying techniques). Leading through rapport means the leader retains respect from his/her followers.

In this mini workshop participants will learn the five principles and five practises of building a great connection with someone. This workshop is delivered in a facilitated discussion format with role plays. It is practical and insightful and previous participants report great success with their new skills and have seen an increase in their sales activity.

Here is what an Achievers Group client said.

Anita Aitken-Taylor, Authorised Financial Adviser, Camelot NZ Limited Partnership

"I had the pleasure of securing Ingrid for a small group workshop with fellow professionals to helps us increase our networking capabilities by learning the concepts of connecting for business growth. I found the concepts exceptional and the way Ingrid demonstrated and helped us with role plays and key questioning techniques made it all the more worthwhile. She is certainly someone that I would use again and recommend this workshop to others."

Communication

 

Developing Conflict Resolution skills

It's our experience that the majority of people avoid conflict, avoid having a difficult conversation with that difficult person and, most will work around an issue rather than deal with it. People leave jobs, marriages and friendships rather than hold a tough conversation. It's our experience that with just a few core skills people feel much more confident about resolving a difficult situation. In this highly practical training we investigate our own conflict management style, learn how to recognise what is 'our stuff' and what is the other person's 'stuff' and gain clarity about where the lines of responsibility lies which in turn helps us keep the main thing the main thing. Understanding where these lines are, is enormously helpful because at the heart of every difficult situation is just a few basic things; our emotions, their emotions, our understanding of the situation and, theirs.

Conflict resolution skills are an increasingly sought after skill for HR recruiters so developing a practical skill set in this area is incredibly savvy. This training seeks to enlighten, up skill and empower. We use a principles and practise approach so that you will leave the course with a greater understanding of you and your conflict management style, with practical skills to resolve difficult situations and with a framework for managing people through conflict.
