The Influence Blog



Learning how to become exceptionally influential in large organisations. Based on the highly successful Influence Blog by Colin Gautrey, this podcast shares short, practical insights that will help you to develop your capability to take more control, deliver stronger results and drive your career forward in large and complex organisations.

This is more than leadership, this is getting down into the nitty-gritty or organisational life. Learning how to understand and navigate the office politics, how to create the right impressions, align stakeholders, and get people on-side and doing what you need them to do.

And, all with the highest possible regard for integrity. There is no need to betray your own values in order to influence other people. Once you know how, you can do what you need to do, and everyone is fully informed and making conscious decisions to back you.
