The Influencing class was jam packed with great information and tools for relationship building and assessing your stakeholders. For me, this class is similar to when I took purchasing classes AFTER I had developed a new purchasing department and been in purchasing for many years. Last week I received the, SO THAT IS HOW IT'S SUPPOSED TO WORK!, education and hope to implement it in my projects. Thanks very much. - SM, Large Energy Industry Company

Through individual and group exercises, workshops, role play, and more, participants get to experiment in a safe environment with a variety of tactics to influence.
