The vision of Influencer;
use all six sources of influence

In order to create change, we often use only one or two methods – “sources” — of influence. Perhaps we try a reward, a serious pep talk, a punishment, etc. This is the reason that lots of projects and efforts for improvement fail, leading to frustration. The problem lies in our limited use of influence. It appears that two sources are not enough to successfully create change. Our research shows that when you tap into at least four (but preferably all six) sources of influence, the chance of successful and sustained change increases tenfold. It’s not a coincidence that the new motto is, “Influence is the new (informal) leadership”.

The New Science of Leadership

The two-day Influencer training helps you to get better results by influencing and changing behavior without formal power. As a result, you’re ready to create change and improvements on a personal level, within teams, or within an entire organization. Learn how to use the six sources of influence to become a better (informal) leader.

Who is the Influencer training
suitable for?

The training is suitable for any manager or professional who needs a model with practical skills to create sustainable changes in behavior. Maybe you’re leading a change project where you’re depending on staff to adapt new protocols, or maybe you’re leading a team that need to be more pro-active. Whatever the case is, you’re facing the challenge to get people in a different behavior mode. The Influencer training, with its proven 6-source model, addresses exactly this major human challenge. Learn the skills and become an influencer.
