Having influence and creating impact in a world of noise, high activity, broader options and competing priorities are valuable skills, relevant for optimising opportunities both personally and professionally.
In this programme, participants will tackle genuine issues relating to maximising their influence and impact in a variety of contexts. In doing so, they will become attuned to the psychology of performance and the impact of mindset on thinking and behaviour. They experience the power of smart communication strategies and negotiation in being influential. They gain deeper insight in creating impact through their presence, values, power and managing unconscious bias. They also learn about the human interaction skills of dialogue, collaboration, and diversity.
This programme is a process. It is designed to work in 4 phases:
ENGAGE – Involve stakeholders, establish context, practice tool and techniques
WORKPLACE PRACTICE – Work with stakeholders to practice learned skills and tools
CONNECT AND REFLECT – Review progress, practise through role-play, refine understanding
CHANGE AND GROW – Sustain your change through continuing practice and feedback
Developing Influence and Impact Programme is immersive, relevant, practical, helping you focus on key things that will make a big difference to your influence and impact, enabling you to flourish.
This programme is a revamped design for our previous Personal Effectiveness and Power Programme.
Why this programme, now?
Our world of work is fast paced, busy, noisy and we compete for space and airtime. Changing work practices mean that communication and message needs to be thought about differently. In many ways the world has opened up. We have access to different voices, different messages, different approaches. and the pandemic has also given many the impetus to refresh their priorities. Amidst such noise and competition, how can we be heard? How can we have influence? How can we have impact?
Aspects of our personal lives have changed too. We have learnt about ourselves over the pandemic; what we are capable of, how strong we are, how determined we are, how resilient we are, what we value and what we want from life. Having influence and impact in our everyday lives enables us to plan, embrace and drive our personal change agendas.
Developing Influence and Impact programme focuses on understanding that our new world of work and life requires influential, impactful people who are brave and willing to have their voice and ideas heard. The Developing Influence and Impact programme develops the skills and knowledge of how to create space to step in and step up to have influence and manage challenges whether internal or external, allowing you to optimise your impact. Learning from each other and from expert facilitators, learners will leave the programme with the skills for creating space and being heard.

Throughout the programme, learners will engage with key stakeholders to clearly define their goals for the programme and track progress against these objectives. Stakeholders and learners will be surveyed at key points to review the impact they are making in the workplace. This feedback and stakeholder engagement will inform facilitated sessions, adding depth and value to these interactions.
- Each programme includes pre-work when you and your stakeholders will be asked to complete a review questionnaire focused on your development goals for the programme. This is done electronically, and results are shared with you to help focus your development.
- During the programme another review will be sent to you and your stakeholders to identify the successes and challenges you have experienced so far and what should be focused on to continue improvement.
- Following the programme, two final reviews will be sent over a period of five months, exploring progress over time and reflecting on growth during the programme.
