Do you find that you have a lot to offer and many good ideas to share, and yet you’re bottlenecked at “no, thank you”? In our world today where so many things are screaming for attention, do you wish you could up your influence so that people would want to say more “Yes” to you?
You may have come across people who aren’t loud, don’t have big titles and yet they’re able to get people to listen and take action. Now you may think that they’re just born with the ability to influence, but there’s really a science behind this. When you’ve learned how to apply this science, you’ll find it effortless to move people from resistance to commitment.
Many think that influence is about being convincing. They put a lot of effort into crafting and rehearsing their message, but real influence is not just in the script.
You’ll be working on your ability to navigate complex work situations and complicated office politics. Good influencing skills come from knowing yourself, understanding people, adapting to them, and going with the grain of science - which are all meant to ensure that you become more confident in influencing different situations and people.
So roll up your sleeves and expect to work hard. We’ll take you through an experiential three-part development.
The human brain is roughly 3% of our body weight, and yet it uses 20-25% of our daily energy supply. It’s not surprising that people want to minimise the time and brain energy spent thinking about a decision. The power science of influence tells us to focus on simplification—so that people want to move forward with us.
While you can’t prepare 100% for every pitch or interaction, you can rely on the science predicting human behaviour. You’ll learn how to apply this science to narrow the gap of communication, and model this skill to various aspects of your work and life.
Imagine you are in a foreign country and you don’t have the currency of that country; you’d not be able to buy food, would you? In a communication setting, influence is like applying useful currencies so that you get buy-in from people. When you are able to use the right currency, that currency is power.
The problem is that most people think good logical reasoning is the best-accepted currency. They try to persuade using logical facts. As a result, many good ideas end up on deaf ears, good employees don’t get promoted, predicted risks are not acted upon, deals are not won.
In part two of this workshop, you will discover your own resources and skills upon which you can leverage to influence in different situations and you will be given scientific ways to improve this skill.
Most communication workshops teach you the structure of how to articulate your point, but the same structure is not applicable in every situation. This workshop wants you to experience first-hand how people receive you when you apply your influence strategies. You get instant feedback on why your strategies work, how to fine-tune your flow, so that you’re not a technician that throws techniques at people; our goal is for you to become masterful so as to flow with the techniques and be natural at influencing.
By the end of the workshop, you have the skill in your muscle memory. This is the flavor of all Mind Transformations workshops.
Influence does not work if you’re not authentic. You can know and apply the science, but if your intentions are not in alignment with what you say, people will soon find out.
This workshop helps you with the science, skills and confidence. It helps you raise your ability to communicate, so that people can receive your value. You can go very far if you master the skill of influence, especially today, when we cannot not collaborate with very different types of people.

You may think that the science and skills to influence people are easy to acquire, and you’re right if you do. Now think about the high-stakes situations, important meetings, missed opportunities you’ve had: you probably had the skills, but not enough confidence to “fire” them, isn’t it?
This workshop gives you the science, the skills and the confidence to influence for results. You’ll learn how to calibrate your mental state, and how to harness your currencies and resources to influence. Think about a situation in which you have no authority and the stakes are high: you’ll be able to show up with your Psychological Best and know how to move the game. This is Influence Without Authority.
We ALWAYS respond within 36 hours.
