26Jun Elite influence for in-house lawyers Manchester We are all trying to influence people and other organisations daily, whether that’s with our own teams, with a client, or across industry. Whatever your influence challenge and whatever decision, behaviour or thinking you are trying to change, how much more effective would you be if you could wield elite influence skill with precision and deliberation? The ubiquity of technology and expertise is removing competitive advantage from business. In an increasingly digital world, where the strength of our relationships defines our success, human influencing skills are more powerful than ever. In this workshop we look at some of the models and tools used successfully on high-stakes military intelligence operations and learn how we can apply them to our business challenges. ==== Workshop outline This workshop will give you tools to improve your influencing skills and deal with any challenge you need to tackle. * Working out the best path to influence key decision makers; * Understanding what is truly important to people; * Understanding the desires and fears that make us decide whether or not to do something; * How to use the influence techniques found in every-day society to increase the power of our influence message; * Putting it all together with a simple plan that will ensure you go into important interactions fully prepared, and with deliberation. ==== About your trainers The team at Applied Influence Group [http://www.appliedinfluencegroup.com/] learnt what they know about influence on high stakes military intelligence operations in environments like Afghanistan. They now take that knowledge and apply it to a wider variety of other contexts: from elite sport to the legal profession. One of your trainers will be Dan Connors. Dan joined the Applied Influence Group after 22 years in the British Army, where he served in a variety of specialist intelligence roles around the world. After refining his operational influence skills, Dan transitioned into capability development and trained the future generations of military influencers and analysts. Having gained his Post-Grad Certificate in Education, Dan now brings his passion for life-long learning to his role leading research, development and innovation at the Applied Influence Group. We look forward to welcoming you.
23Jan Future Legal Leaders - Information Alchemy London This course explores key, practical ways to deliver legal content or information with impact, in a way that is both engaging and empathetic. It is not just about becoming a better presenter; you will learn how to build a positive communication mindset. Throughout the workshop, Steve will teach you how to prepare under time-pressure, in order to deliver technical information to others (who might not be technical!) and you will examine the role that narrative plays in successfully delivering of technical information to others. You will also explore the importance of presenting well, learn how to manage your negative ‘shadow voice’ and how to develop the right mindset when presenting. ==== Your Trainer - Steve Weiner, TMD International During his time as a practising litigation solicitor in the City of London, Steve began doing stand-up and sketch comedy open spots around the country as a hobby. After winning a prestigious national ‘new act’ competition, Steve found himself signed and touring with the largest comedy agency in the UK and presenting and acting both on radio and TV. Giving up private practice, Steve balanced his performance career (around 1500 live shows) with a career delivering skills development and coaching for lawyers and those working with lawyers in firms – gigging at night and training/coaching/role-playing during the day. Eventually focusing on the facilitating and coaching full-time, Steve’s passion for learning and development became his sole focus. Along the way Steve worked as an L&D consultant for numerous global law firms and then as Head of L&D for a UK top 100 firm in Mayfair, London, before moving intoconsultancy.
