FREE Event – Becoming an Influential Leader: Enhancing Your Power to Persuade – Dr Michael Brenner (USA) – StartUp Week Event

Becoming an Influential Leader: Enhancing Your Power to Persuade

Any leader can get things done by imposing his or her authority. But over the long-term, such tactics are likely to degrade trust and morale. Influence is a better route to results. Influential leaders are able to produce desired behaviors in others without force, instigation or direct exercise of command. They keep their word, exhibit empathy, possess credibility, listen actively and apply sound reasoning. The result? Greater engagement, productivity, and teamwork.

In this eye-opening workshop, Dr. Michael Brenner International Speaker (USA) will show how to improve one’s ability to influence others and how doing so can positively affect leadership. Participants will have an opportunity to practice key skills and receive expert feedback.


  • 10 “sacred rules” of influence
  • Power words and phrases that increase your influence
  • How to effectively use both emotional and rational approaches
  • How to create a compelling case for taking a particular course of action
