Developing Your Influencing Skills How to influence people by increasing your credibility, trustworthiness and communication skills What are the characteristics that make some people more influential than others? This book will give you the keys to successfully increase your influence at work and at home. It explains how becoming more influential is not about using manipulative techniques to get your own way but is about developing a set of beliefs and behaviors that make you a more influential force. We have identified 7 traits that influential people share and, the good news is, they can be developed. In this book you will discover how to: Decide what your influencing goals are and state them in a compelling way. Find ways to increase your credibility rating with other people. Avoid manipulative practice and become more authentic. Develop stronger and more trusting relationships. Inspire others to follow your lead. Become a more influential communicator. This book is packed with case studies, exercises and practical tips to help you to develop the traits required to become a more influential person. All the exercises that are in the book are also in a free downloadable workbook available from http: //www.UoLearn.com What do people say about influencing skills? "Interesting, readable and practical - everything I want from this type of book." "A brand new take on influencing." "Thought provoking and extremely helpful." "This book was a revelation." "Completely changed the way I see influencing - I now believe that I can grow and develop my ability to influence by concentrating on these seven traits." "Very readable book which has changed my perspective on influencing. I always thought of it as a set of tools and techniques but the idea of becoming more influential is much more interesting. This book makes that idea feel possible." "I liked the whole concept of developing the traits of influential people and really liked the way they were presented. I enjoyed the exercises and have started to influence people in different ways as a result. Thank you for the ideas." It has made me realize that perhaps I have put too much effort into influencing external clients and stakeholders and not enough time trying to be influential with my own staff!!" "I quickly realised that, influencing is a much broader topic than I had imagined. I gained from it an understanding that I stand a better chance of maximizing my effectiveness if I play to my own strengths, rather than trying to meet other's expectations of me." "Most importantly, I learnt that some of the influencing I see employed by others is really manipulations and not only is it not necessary but it can in fact be counterproductive to subscribe to this method. It was very reassuring to hear that I don't have to become someone I'm not in order to extend my influence!"

What is the fastest, most effective way to get highly qualified clients to grow your consulting firm? If you’re like most firm leaders, you’d say networking, social media campaigns, or content marketing — and you’d be wrong! Despite their popularity, these methods are wasteful, unpredictable, and rarely cost-effective. The world’s most successful consulting firms do not chase clients; they use “Catalysts” to attract them. In “Never Chase Clients Again”, consulting expert Michael Moshiri reveals what Catalysts are, and how the world’s biggest professional service firms — Deloitte, EY, and PwC — use them to find, attract, and win highly qualified clients. Moshiri explains how the most successful practice leaders in these firms motivate clients to want to buy services from them, instead of their competitors, by demonstrating the “Three Core Qualifications” of character, commitment, and competence — before their very first encounter. He then introduces you to the “Client Catalyst System”, a set of step-by-step instructions and practical principles that help you to leverage the power of Catalysts to find new clients, win more business, and grow your consulting firm — quickly, predictably, and efficiently. If you are a firm leader looking for ways to grow your client base, a seasoned consultant looking for a predictable and reliable source of consulting leads and prospective clients, or a consulting executive with business development responsibilities, then this book will show you the most effective strategies the world’s biggest firms use to achieve those goals. In addition, you can quickly implement the principles and the system outlined in this book by leveraging the free downloadable worksheets, templates, and checklists that are available to you on the book's website. “Never Chase Clients Again” is destined to take its place alongside “Managing The Professional Service Firm” and “The Trusted Advisor” as a business classic for consulting firm leaders, seasoned consultants, and business development professionals alike.

The updated and most complete edition of Napoleon Hill`s masterworkNapoleon Hill stunned America when he published his first edition of The Law of Success. It had taken Hill twenty years to research and write. He had personally met with hundreds of the most famous self-made multimillionaires so he could study their habits, analyze their methods, and learn their secrets of success. After further testing and proving his theories, Napoleon Hill refined them into 17 basic principles that anyone could master and use.This recording explains step-by-step how you can use the following four Principles of Success:Initiative amp; Leadership: Develop your instincts to anticipate problems and know when to seize opportunitiesImagination: Stimulate your mind to create new concepts out of common ideas and put them to work for youEnthusiasm: Overcome uncertainty or shyness, and inspire others to take interest in you and your ideasSelf-control: Find the firmness of character to truly bet "master of your fate and the captain of your soul."This revised and updated edition-the second of the four volumes-incorporates new information, explains historical context, and augments Napoleon Hill`s original examples with contemporary stories which conclusively prove that the Law of Success is as relevant and applicable today as it was when this landmark book was first published.Read by Mario Rosales
