Programme Outline

The core of the POSITIVE POWER & INFLUENCE Programme is the renowned Situational Influence Model™. This model highlights that we can apply a specific style best suited to influence each situation we face.

  • Influence Self-Assessment

    • Participants complete an assignment that analyses their current influence styles and assesses their strengths and weaknesses. These form the basis for their learning goals.
  • The Situational Influence Model™

    • Participants explore the Situational Influence Model™ and learn the behaviours associated with each style.
  • Skill Development Practice Using Cases and Exercises

    • Participants engage in intensive skill practice exercises to explore their ability to use the influence styles in role-plays of business and real-life situations.
  • Application Planning

    • Participants practise a real-life personal influence situation of their choosing, using a diagnostic checklist to evaluate which styles are most appropriate for this and other future influence situations.

As part of the training and learning during this course, photography and/or video recording of participants in action will be done.
