They'll practice approaches for strategically building relationships and developing reciprocity. They'll learn how to generate authority and harness social information and cues to be a stronger leader. This skill-set is useful for anyone who works with people and coursework is designed to help participants understand the psychology of why people act the way they do. Participants will complete the course with increased confidence in their ability to influence people.
