  • AMA2528: Assertiveness Training for Women in Business
    07/10/2017 - 07/12/2017
    Location To Be Determined ,TX

    Now and then, you're going to overreact or underreact. You'll blurt out something that you wish you hadn't or hurt someone whose opinion you value. Still, the person with good assertiveness skills usually sends the right signals and gets the right responses. With assertiveness training, women can learn how to better handle nearly any situation that comes up-without seeming shy or pushy. Assertiveness skills for women are vital for getting things done, getting what you want, and commanding respect.

    This course is assertiveness training for women at its best. As you learn, practice, and refine fundamental assertiveness skills, you'll also share your concerns with other women executives in a comfortable and supportive learning environment.

  • AMA2204: Expanding Your Influence: Understanding the Psychology of Persuasion
    07/10/2017 - 07/11/2017
    AMA Executive Conference Center Atlanta ,GA

    Bringing about the reaction you want from others and expanding your influence require insights that go beyond the actual process of influencing and into the psychology of what truly prompts us to say "yes" or "no."

    This two-day course explores these psychological triggers and how you can use this knowledge to bring about not only for compliance but also for mutually desirable outcomes. You'll uncover persuasion techniques that most people don't even know exist, and you'll learn how to build your influence by applying these principles to any number of business interactions-from managing, mentoring, and negotiating, to conversing, writing, and presenting. In addition, you will learn how to choose the best principle for any given situation and avoid being manipulated by others.

    You will also cover:

    • The psychological foundation to the laws of persuasion
    • Differentiating the psychology of persuasion from the process of influencing
    • The relationship of triggers to the laws of persuasion/influence
    • The two paths of persuasion: conscious and subconscious
    • Using the Pre-Persuasion Checklist to determine the appropriate law(s) of persuasion for a given business situation
    • Applying the laws of persuasion back on the job

    You will receive a complimentary copy of Maximum Influence: The 12 Universal Laws of Power Persuasion by Kurt W. Mortensen when you attend this course.

    Conflict is all around us, especially during tough business periods where resources are tight and tempers are shorter, but most people lack basic conflict management skills.

    With this conflict management training, you will learn to recognize the causes of interpersonal conflict, and you will become aware of your emotional triggers to prevent explosive situations. You will learn new strategies of conflict management that will improve your communication performance and, ultimately, increase the success of your business initiatives.
