Influence and persuade authentically and effectively every single time.



From leadership speaker, Duncan Stevens: Great leadership is never about the leader. It’s about everyone whose lives we touch. There is no dichotomy between caring for others and perusing success in your business as a leader. This is a cause and effect relationship.

Some leaders look for compliance in their business. However, the opposite of compliance is commitment which comes from influencers and leaders asking themselves “How does what I’m asking this person to do align with their needs, goals, wants and desires?”

By leading with care and empathy for your employees and applying Duncan’s Effective Influence Model you can be assured your team will be both more effective and more committed.

This will result in a more loyal and committed work force with lower staff turnover rates and more open to leadership influence. If they are more open to influence, we can inspire them. If we can inspire them more, they will serve our customers better, retain them for longer and generate more service, higher reviews and repeat business as a result.

As a leadership speaker, Duncan uses his Effective Influence Model to demystify and decode the techniques that are used by the world’s premier business leaders to accelerate their influence abilities and build relationships.

Duncan shares with you small practical, costless principles that will allow you to lead, sell, market and create long-term client relationships much more effectively where the client and your team will feel that they are respected and are cared for. In turn, this will build loyalty, emotional engagement, and buy-in, all of which will lead to significantly more effective results.

Duncan’s Effective Influence Model will give you the tools and techniques to take your influencing skills to the next level, and ensure that you can influence your team and generate genuine buy-in to new ideas more effectively, every single time.”
