Collaborative Influence

Traditional “influencing techniques” often aren’t appropriate when you’re collaborating to solve problems together. In this one-day workshop, you will learn ways to become more influential amongst the people you work with regularly, while creating spaces where they can easily speak up, too.

This workshop will be delivered in the classroom at Happy's HQ in central London. We can also organise a private group workshop just for your organisation, held at Happy or your workplace — contact us for availability and pricing.

Course Overview

What you will learn

You will learn to develop more collaborative conversations at work, so that you get your ideas heard.

  • How to create an environment where everybody is able to contribute to great ideas
  • Two often-missed steps you should take before presenting your thoughts
  • The dangers of “group-think” and how you can combat it
  • Where diversity and disagreement fit in collaborative conversations
  • How listening to others helps you to be heard
  • A framework for sharing “difficult” messages so they are better understood
  • An instant “Jedi mind trick” to build closer relationships.

This programme is delivered under license from remote training and consultancy experts Rees McCann. Judy Rees was named as a Top 100 Influencer in Remote Working in 2020 by Onalytica.

This workshop will be delivered in the classroom at Happy's HQ in central London. We can also organise a private group workshop just for your organisation, held at Happy or your workplace — contact us for availability and pricing.

The structure of the course was very good and the practical steps that we went away to apply were very effective.

Coronavirus Update

Due to current government guidelines we have temporarily closed our training centre in London. All of our staff are now working remotely, and all classroom training has been postponed until 29th May.

We have developed a fantastic range of interactive webinars delivered by our experienced facilitators, Live Online Learning. We understand that for many people this will be the first time that they have worked from home and so we have developed short 1.5-2 hour sessions to help you adjust to this new situation. You can see details of our IT Skills live online learning sessions here and our Personal Development sessions here – or we can adapt any of our classroom training into webinar format for you.

For the latest government guidance, please visit the website.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will advise all clients if the situation changes.

If you have any questions or concerns, or would like to arrange some online training, our friendly team are available Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm. You can leave a message on 020 7375 7300 or email us at
