I'm giving you 2 real life situations of how my coaching clients are applying influencing skills to difficult colleagues.

A lot of influencing training is about how to inspire people to follow you - which is great! But sometimes, all we need is to get someone we work with to play ball. This can be really hard when they're just a plain difficult human!

These examples will help you to see how you can apply the skills I taught in episodes 49 and 50 to real life situations.


Episode Summary:

  • Example 1: How Sophia influenced a team member who kept throwing complaints at her
  • Example 2: How Ellie influenced and external consultant who wouldn't listen to her advice
  • How both Sophia and Ellie will prevent these situations from happening again in the future
