Professional Development Workshop Series with Chris McDonell: How to be a Master Influencer

  • June 16, 2020
    8:30 am - 9:30 am

Chris McDonellInfluence is defined as the capacity to have an effect on the character, development or behavior of someone or something.  Every day you are influencing and being influenced by those around you. Friends, family, colleagues, employees, clients and strategic partners all make up a network where you play a dynamic role. Often, you’re not even aware of the impact of your own influence.

To master influence, you must start with yourself and your emotional state, especially during these challenging times. During this workshop, we will take a deep dive into the ways that our thoughts may limit our performance, and work through seven questions designed to make us more productive and influential in all phases of our lives. We will also examine the core tenants of long-term bonding and rapport, effective (virtual) communication, and buying strategies in order to set clients (internal and external) at ease and make you more relatable.

Chris McDonell is President of McDonell Consulting Group, a licensed Sandler Training center based in Baltimore.
