Colin GautreyInfluence will help you to achieve your goals. My purpose, and my passion, is to influence you to take positive, high-integrity action to become more influential.

The purpose of this site is to help you to find practical ways to become more influential at work. I have been helping people to do this for over ten years now, and this site contains hundreds of articles that have arisen from my dedication to this topic. You can read more about me here.

Together with my colleagues, we deliver training and coaching via The Gautrey Group. Much of our in-house training and development is based on the content your will find here.

My recommendation is that you begin by subscribing to the Influence Blog (over to the right). Once you become familiar with the what I have to offer here, upgrade to Premium Membership (below). This will give you privileged access to some of the best material available on the subject, and priority access to me.

Alternatively, or as well, you are welcome to subscribe to the special interest lists below. What I have done with these is write content specific to the topic after a fair degree of research. In addition, I’ve added relevant other articles that will enrich your learning.

To reiterate, my purpose is to help you to become more influential. So, if you feel I can help in any way, please get in touch.

Best Wishes
Colin

FREE Learning Opportunities

Having worked with thousands over the last 10 years or so, I’ve been able to help them to learn to influence. However, their needs have varied widely. To help you to get to know what I do, and how I do it, while also learning, I’ve developed a number of FREE email subscription lists.

These are are orientated to specific themes that I have identified as common to a great number of people out there. You are welcome to sign up to one or more of these lists, and I’ve love to hear how you get on with them and what you do differently as a result.

The Influential Project Manager

When researching my book, A Project Manager’s Guide to Influence, I learned a great deal about the challenges faced by many people working in or around projects. This series of very short articles will definitely get you to stop and think. When you do that, you get the opportunity to change what you’re doing and in the process, improve your results.

  

  

The Influence TOOLKIT

I’ve been learning about influence for over 10 years now. In that time I have created a large number of tools, processes and frameworks that I now use to help my clients to become more influential.

These tools are highly practical, and in this series I will, over a period of time, share all of these with you . They will build into an incredible resource that will help you to get more done with greater influence.

This series, which includes a great deal of research, will help you to consider the important topics, and then learn how to increase your influence, without losing your integrity.
