I have been asked to focus on this for the experience part of an upcoming interview and I can only think of a limited number of influencing styles. They are as follows:
- fact- or evidence-based
- empathising with their point of view and guiding them towards your solution from there by framing it in terms of the benefits to them
- team-based: group standards can create a slight peer pressure for people to match (e.g. the work efforts) of the rest of the group.
I would be interested to hear if there are any key influencing strategies I am overlooking?
Can you recommend any others I should be thinking of?
