The Influential Leader 

CEU Hours** AVAILABLE, As a leader in your organization, your job is to achieve goals by working with and through others. In this role, your ability to influence the thoughts and actions of your associates is critical. Best Care EAP’s unique, four-part training series has been designed to give you the perspective, knowledge, tools and experiences necessary to become a truly influential leader.

Session One: Influential Leaders PERSUADE There are only three ways to get people to do what you want/need them to do: 1) you can coerce them; 2) you can bribe them; OR 3) you can persuade them. Only persuasion produces long-lasting, positive results.

Session Two: Influential Leaders INSPIRE Influential leaders learn that prompting others to effective action is often more about engaging hearts than winning minds. This is also known as being emotionally intelligent. In this first session you will sharpen your emotional intelli-gence (EQ) by assessing your current level of EQ using The Emotional Intelligence Appraisal™.

Session Three: Influential Leaders COACH Coaching is the arena within which influential leaders most regularly apply their powers of persuasion. Building on les-sons drawn from the previous two sessions, this program will help you discover empowering answers...

Session Four: Influential Leaders PLAN It’s time for you to take the wheel! During this final hands-on session, you will:

  • Set SMART goals for influencing organizational outcomes
  • Anchor your achievement by: crafting an action plan that pinpoints people and resources, setting realistic time-lines, and developing measureable milestones
  • Receive highly valuable feedback that will spell the differ-ence between success and failure
