Recorded at Virtual AIHce EXP 2020
In today's challenging environment, health and safety professionals have the skills to implement management systems, but many lack the skills to convince senior management to take the lead or approve critical programs. This session will be an open discussion on various techniques to influence and persuade people. Participants may find some of the techniques discussed ethically and morally questionable. It is important to know and understand them, so they will not be used by others to influence EHS professionals. Attendees should understand that there are many more techniques than what will be discussed, but the techniques discussed are some of the most commonly used.
Upon completion, the participant will be able to:
- Prepare before presenting.
- Discuss the benefits of story telling.
- Describe commonly used influencing techniques and how to use them.
