In a world where many organizations are moving away from hierarchical leadership structures to flatter, more team-based models, we find that the person with the influence has the power. Our need to be collaborative is heightened and, consequently, our need to understand interpersonal dynamics and to perform with credibility, confidence, and agility.

The session utilizes the research of current thought leaders in the field of influencing, business, psychology, social science, and performance. It explores our conscious and more subconscious behaviours, and provides participants with a ‘tool kit’ of practices that will enable them to embed the theory in an active and exhilarating way by the use of our forum theatre modality. Using a range of experiential theatre techniques you will explore how to understand your own influencing style, where they draw their power from, to flex your style to connect with others whilst remaining open to others opinions, to plan and deliver high-impact messages, to generate greater rapport in all your relationships and project themselves with confidence, authority, and presence.

Who should Attend

Supervisors, managers, and project leaders in today's business world.

Seminar Topics

  • Understand your personal power and influencing style and how to flex that style to engage more fully with others,
  • Leverage your personal power with confidence, authority, and agility to increase self-control, manage anxiety, and remain calm under pressure, and
  • Naturally develop an assertive approach by understanding the importance of body language and vocal technique.
