Influence & Persuasion

Everyone needs to be a better influencer. Whether it is getting a colleague to help with a project or motivating an entire team, hardly a day passes we don’t try to influence ourselves or others to do something different. Some people seem to be able to do it effortlessly, and almost without anyone noticing, where others fall back on the power of their position to enforce what they want. Persuasion skills can be learned just like any others, and they are a key part of being able to influence others to achieve your goals and objectives. In Elevate BDG’s Influence & Persuasion workshop, you will learn how to diagnose the causes behind any team or organization problem; identify high-leverage behaviors if changed will lead to desired results; rely less on formal authority to effectively motivate and enable others; and use six sources of influence to make organizational change inevitable. Each participant will take a Behaviors & Motivators assessment prior to the training so we can incorporate the results and understand your ideal method of communication and help each member of your team communicate better with their peers. With use of real-life application, video, group discussions and skill practice this seminar will show you how to achieve effective dialogue at all levels in your organization and reduce deference and defiance.

Elevate BDG’s Leadership Series is not for everyone, but it is definitely for anyone on the track to success, including new supervisors, managers & any high potential employee.


There is a better way to maximize talent within your business.

Elevate BDG uses advanced assessment technology to effectively “map” an individual based on their behavioral profile to give you a better understanding of employees. With the use of two powerful assessments, we will help you to understand why your employees make decisions that they make, how they communicate, how they perceive the world, and what they are capable of doing. It’s time to take a deeper look into each member of your team to create a cohesive, productive, & motivating culture for all!

TWO powerful assessments, ONE dynamic result.

DISC is an extremely valuable tool, but it’s not the only tool you need to understand human dynamics. When we only use a single-dimensional assessment, we only have one perspective to understand people. By combining the DISC profile with the Motivators assessment, we can suddenly understand WHY a person moves into action and HOW they will attempt to satisfy these motivators. With this combined information, we can start to understand why two people with the same motivators will go about something in a very different manner. With a multi-science approach, we have a more complete understanding of an individual and we can develop plans to help them be more effective - personally and professionally.
