Today, it is all too easy to allow the more challenging aspects of our professional and personal lives to dominate our thinking. A few bad experiences can lead us to believe that a negative pattern is starting to form, and we can begin to expect the worst for the future. Mindfulness helps to bring our focus and our attention into the here and now and seeks to break cycles of negativity in how we view ourselves and the world around us.

Influencing Teams

Influence is the process whereby one person modifies the attitudes or behaviour of another person. Therefore, at its most basic level, it is simply about changing someone’s behaviour. The ability to influence others, however, is clearly an essential life skill that anyone who wishes to thrive and succeed must master. This module explores the background and definition of soft skills, key leadership skills, methods of exerting influence, influencing teams and common influencing skills.
