embedding the learning.
This course is delivered using observational theatre based learning. Our actors perform a number of scenarios demonstrating how influencing can be effective and where it doesn't work.
In addition to these scenes, we facilitate discussions after each one to understand the impact and we embed the learning.
Learners also get an opportunity to practice their new skills in the safe learning environment we create.
By the end of this course, learners will be able to:
- Identify situations both internally and externally that are dependent on influencing skills.
- Recognise key models and how to utilise them to develop an influencing approach.
- Explain how to use both non-verbal and verbal communication skills effectively when influencing.
- Identify how to improve personal effectiveness when in influential situations.
Some faq's about our How to Influence Training.
0.1 What is Theatre based learning?
Theatre Based Learning is the technique we use to bring learning to life by using our actors to perform scenarios, based on real case studies.
Theatre Based Learning can be either observational (where learners watch scenes and discuss) OR participative (where we use techniques like real-play and practice, forum where learners interact with the actors and direct them or hot-seating where learners give feedback to individual characters and make suggestions).
0.2What are the benefits of our how to influence training?
Discussing and learning in the traditional ‘class-room’ is effective, but long-term memory is better stimulated by having an experience. Our approach using experiential and drama based methods delivers this and leads to more sustained learning.

Our training is observational and participative, using teams of actors to bring it to life. We recognise that taking part in role-play is not for everyone, so we offer observational training – this is where two of our acting team demonstrate scenes related to the course and delegates observe and comment on the behaviors. Where a business is more confident working with actors, we take this to the next level with participative training so delegates get to practice their newly learnt skills.
