Developing Personal Influence and Impact

Today’s business environment is not easy. Priorities change frequently and you need to get results faster. But in companies and organisations, you don’t always have direct control over all the people and elements you need to deliver results efficiently and on time.

We all know how stressful and frustrating it can be, trying to get everybody in a project team to deliver their parts of the project. It can also be just working with your colleagues every day, they are just too busy to help you with your project.
If you could just get everybody on board and supporting your ideas, it would make life so much easier. It would also save the company time and money.

But how do you do this? How do you get others to support your goals and objectives? How do you work your way through internal politics to get the collaboration and resources you need? How do you get all stakeholders on board including your peers, your team, senior management and maybe even customers and suppliers?

Develop a strategic mindset to increase the success of your strategic plans.

In recent years, an unsettling number of companies have failed to grow or collapsed completely—from long-established giants to smaller-scale businesses.

Through case studies and practical thinking exercises, you’ll stimulate your strategic thinking, learn to recognize patterns that impact strategy and enhance your abilities to generate new insights and ideas.
