Admit it, if you had the authority to make people sit up and pay attention you’d already be where you wanted to be in your professional life. Or, at the very least, you’d be well on your way there. But often the power to persuade, influence and engage others – that air of gravitas– is a skill we need to learn.

It’s all too common to feel undermined and judged by clients, colleagues and managers; to struggle to get your point across in meetings, and feel that you’re failing to do yourself justice on conference calls and in presentations.

Unfortunately, every missed opportunity to contribute, grow and impress will only erode your self-confidence still further.

The key to overcoming this ‘problem’ lies in establishing robust communication habits.

Once you develop the mindset and skill set you need to deal with challenging situations and you’ll be more in control and more successful in gaining respect from everyone around you.

In this session you’ll learn:

- Practical tools to develop gravitas and‘presence’ – including eye contact, voice projection, body language, pace and pauses

- Individual strategies for dealing with interruptions/challenges

- The art of being assertive, not aggressive

- Negotiation/persuasion techniques.
