Academy for Political Intelligence

Politics of Influence

Effective Influencing

We can provide training to improve the influencing skills and behaviours to our staff. This we must do. However if they don’t understand and manage the political landscape we may as well save our money – the skills will be useless.

Our approach since has been to blend the two. Influencing skills with political intelligence™ – a potent and effective approach to making our client training programmes a worthwhile investment.

Objectives of a typical workshop – 2 days, with optional follow up day


  • Be absolutely clear as to what is and what isn’t influence and when it should and shouldn’t be used
  • Learn that influence is a process and to use our unique five stage model of effective influencing
  • Learn the impact of your own personal influencing style and that of others
  • Consider how to flex your style in order to influence with others to achieve win/win outcomes
