The Four Influencing Competencies for Leaders

Dene RossouwThe 4 Influencing Competencies_x200What drives success in the workplace is not so much your qualifications and knowledge as the relationships you build.

If you have a sense of urgency to increase your influence and improve the strategic advantage and fitness of your organization, we have identified 4 essential influencing competencies that can help you inspire action, innovate and work and get results.

Authentic conversations are fundamental to influencing others and sustaining great relationships at work.

What seems so simple can be difficult to do consistently. Zaffron and Logan, co-authors of The three laws of performance, contend that an organization is its network of conversations. Thus an organization is only as healthy as its conversations.

The Four Influencing Competencies for Leaders will provide you with clear guidelines, examples and tools to help you to influence and innovate at work through shared goals and a sense of purpose in relationship. This generates a sense of optimism and invites an impossible instead of a predictable future.

This 90 minute presentation on leadership competencies will provide you with practical models that you can immediately adapt and use in your context.
