Connecting and Influencing
Our ability to connect with and influence those we work for, with and lead has become a critical component of our personal and business success. Many call this EQ over IQ.
Being able to develop and leverage superior "soft skills", that is interpersonal skills, also called "people skills or "social skills" is what differentiates business professionals from amateurs in today's business world, irrespective of our technical abilities, age, maturity, seniority or social standing. These skills are imminently "learnable".
Our executive life coaching practice has developed a range of such skills that we groom individual business people through developing. They are NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) based and they work.
They teach a set of superb advanced communication skills that will enable a degree of rapport building you wouldn't believe possible. And then we add to those a range of influencing skill awareness levels that place us apart from most.
Firstly there are over 50 blog articles in this category that can help remind you or share some new insights from so many years of working with clients just like you.
Then, in the privacy of your own office we can tailor and hone these communication and influencing skills to work just right for you and your personality.
And then we will help you develop professional networking skills that your peers will envy.
But only if you want to differentiate yourself from the herd, and work with a coach.
