The key skills of influence are fine but you also need to operate with good character. In this bonus video, you'll learn what we mean by that, why it's crucial to genuine leadership, and how it works in practice.
There are clear benefits for you, your colleagues, and others you work with.
By completing this course, and diligently putting the skills into practice on current, real scenarios, you'll:
""It's all coming together. Very well designed and well thought-out. Some great tips and I will definitely use what I have learned.""
""Just want to say a huge thank you for teaching this course. Influencing skills is not an easy thing to teach, and you made it really worthwhile. Right from the start of the course I've learnt many things which stuck with me - I believe which will take me further in my career path.""
""As of 9 o'clock this morning, I presented my case to (my senior manager) using the lessons and tools from (the course) and got the sign-off for it." "

It's broken up into 20 bite-sized chunks so you can fit it in and around work as needed. The total time it takes to watch all the videos is about 90 minutes but there are workbook exercises to complete, and on-the-job practise to do before moving on. Essentially, we recommend spending roughly 1 to 2 hours a week doing the material over a three to four week period.
