    . About the Program:

    "The best leaders know how to get individuals to work together to accomplish goals. In contrast, we struggle to enable our colleagues to complete projects on time and on budget. We do our best to motivate employees to demonstrate more concern for profitability or follow procedures, but we regularly fall short.

    In spite of the fact that we're routinely trying to alter behavior, few of us can articulate an effective strategy to create this behavior change. It's time this changed. By drawing from he skills of many of the world's best change agents and combining them with five decades of social-science research, influencer Training creates a powerful and portable model for behavior change. 

    Organizers around the world have turned to Influencer Training to improve bottom-line results like workplace safety, customer service, complacence, and profitability.
