Course description

The ability to influence others and manage conflict is a valuable business skill that can have a profoundly positive impact on your working life.

The first day of this two-day experiential programme focuses on tried-and-tested theories and powerful techniques. The second day provides you with the opportunity to put them into practice with a team of actors in a safe, relaxed and fun environment, where you’ll receive plenty of constructive feedback.

Is it right for me?

If you have at least two years’ management experience, welcome feedback on your style and approach, and enjoy different ways of doing things, this management training course will enhance your current ability.

What will I get out of it?


By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Identify your current style and how to build a more proactive and strategic approach
  • Be able to utilise new techniques to enhance your influencing skills
  • Use listening and questioning skills to identify others’ motivational drivers
  • Apply different techniques for pre-empting and handling conflict
  • Build confidence in dealing with other people and cultures positively
  • Leave with an action plan to implement on return to work

The course was informative and well presented. Chris was open and showed an enthusiatic outlook in teaching it. I have taken away more confidence to engage my workplace with.
