Gaining Mastery in Influencing xx

The idea for a compact one-day masterclass in Influencing & Impact was developed following the success of our popular two-day Strategic Influencing & Personal Impact (SIPI) workshop. Many HR and talent development professionals are keen to find out more about the power of SIPI. Others want to improve their own skills in this area but can’t commit to a two-day workshop. This masterclass is exclusive to HR professionals and is one of a series of masterclasses we run for various functional experts.
