You will learn this in Strategic influencing

In this training, we get to work on your powers of influence. What works best, and what works less? What do you do (consciously or unconsciously) when the going gets tough? We look at the patterns that arise and how you can act more effectively in challenging situations. You’ll learn the right tools for exerting influence more effectively in a way that suits you best.

Step one: self-reflection. You realise that your behaviour doesn’t always have the right effect, so it’s important to get to know yourself. The course kicks off with an individual coaching session with the trainer to define your learning needs in depth. Then, we zoom in on what you are ready, willing and able to do to influence others. 

The following subjects are covered: 

  • Your practical examples 
  • Your strengths, pitfalls and patterns related to influence
  • Your potential influence-related talents
  • Underlying patterns in others and how to intervene in them
  • Ways of effectively influencing yourself, others and the forces at play
  • Alternative strategic choices 
  • Learning from and with each other 
  • Self-reflection and formulating action points  

New Heroes

During this training you will have access to the online platform New Heroes and you will work actively with assignments from the New Heroes learning journeys. You can also continue to work on your own personal strength, communication and leadership skills on your own initiative. Everything at your own pace, wherever and whenever you want.


  • You discover your (hidden) talents when it comes to influencing others
  • You identify your (unconscious) behaviours when faced with challenges
  • You can break free from behaviour patterns in yourself and others
  • You see possibilities for spurring others into action 
  • You spot the forces at play and see new ways of influencing them 
  • You learn to keep in touch with yourself and those around you 
  • You achieve results with your colleagues, faster and more easily

Influence others, starting with yourself

Target audience

Your work as a leader or consultant involves influencing others, yet you notice that you aren’t always effective. Too often, you’re either going with the flow, arguing, fighting or avoiding situations. Look in the mirror and discover new possibilities for spurring yourself and others into action. For this course, you’ll need a secondary vocational education/work level.

Start and end measurement

This course improves your skills. We can guarantee that. How? Before you start your course, you take a scan. This determines your starting level and helps set the right goals. You receive a personal report. That way, you know exactly where you stand, what you want to accomplish, and how to get there. Your trainer helps you to focus and develop, in order to reach your full potential. After your training is done, you take another scan. This end measurement shows how much you’ve grown, and where you can still develop your skills further.

The total duration of the training course is 9 weeks. The training course consists of an online kick-off, 1 block of 2 days and 2 blocks of 1 day. Your time investment is approximately 2,5 hours of self study a week: theoretical and practical through the MijnSN learning community.

Real learning starts with the practical application of what you have learned. You will commence several practical assignments within your own organization, selecting a mentor to supervise and stimulate your learning process - before the first meeting. The mentor could be your manager or a (senior) colleague. For more information on the mentor's role please visit www.sn.nl/mentor. After three weeks you will take your experiences in this regard to the next meeting.
