Influence & Leadership

Influencing people to do the right thing when it comes to health and safety should be easy, shouldn’t it?

Yet it is actually a key skill. Traditionally, training has mostly focused on the technical skill set and, no doubt, your team has the requisite knowledge and technical skills at their fingertips. But how good are they at appealing to the emotional brain of their audience as well as the rational one? Are they able to give a compelling presentation that inspires rather than bores the audience?

Unless we are brilliant in our chosen specialism, it is very difficult to thrive in any business these days with a purely technical skill set. Our ability to influence, network, present formally and informally, manage and lead will be what defines our career progression.
