An ambitious vision for the future of your organisation isn’t enough – how do you communicate this vision to get your colleagues on board? The ability to effectively communicate and persuade others is a key leadership skill. Traditional and common-sense models of communication and persuasion often fail to capture the complex nature of ‘influencing’. Via structured learning activities (video lectures, quizzes, discussion prompts and written assessments) this course will develop your capacity to communicate appropriately in different situational and cultural contexts, making you a highly influential leader.

TOP REVIEWS FROM STORYTELLING AND INFLUENCING: COMMUNICATE WITH IMPACT
I have really enjoyed learning this course, and professors made it so easy for me to understand the concept. As I was proceeding with the course, I applied some of the ideas and guess what? It worked
Practical and extremely helpful course on communication - highly reccommend! Easily the most useful communication course I've ever taken. Thoroughly enjoyed this learning experience.
Content was great, but some of the test material seemed to be scoring incorrectly and I never heard back from my inquiry. Also, there were a lot of typos. A bit sloppy, but great overall content.
An incredible course with amazing teachers. I encourage everyone to take this course! It's important to have the keys to a great storytelling and influencing through persuasion.
