The Art of Brilliance Careers Leader Away Day

Careers Leaders workshop on Influence


Objective: Understand what influence is and to feel more confident influencing different stakeholders.

Key words: Asserting, convincing, negotiating, connecting, inspiring.


“I am too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful,  and way too determined to be defeated.”


Use the following to consider when you are aiming to influence a specific stakeholder.

  • What they need and what you need (direction)
  • Where the common ground is and the measure of success
  • Why this is important (motivation)
  • How the outcome might be achieved – where, when and with whom (including what is non-negotiable). What options are available, beyond the obvious
  • What barriers they might put up
  • Who are your allies?
  • What words/phrases might have the most impact
