Influence and Persuasion

Unfortunately, some of the best ideas never get heard due to a breakdown in communication. Conveying a message using influence and persuasion allows the best ideas to be heard and taken seriously. EMC can support your employees to be heard and can help ensure your organisation has access to the best and most innovative ideas which will benefit both your organisation and your clients.

'Having influence is not about elevating self, but about lifting others.' -Sheri Dew



Psychometric instruments

Psychometric instruments such as the Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument (HBDI), DiSC system, Team Management Profile (TMP), and Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) are useful tools that allow employees to have introspection about their working and thinking habits. Utilising these tools in the workplace allows for clarity of communication between colleagues, ensuring efficiency in tasks, and effective meetings where everyone has a role. EMC is fully equipped to assist your organisation in conducting the instruments and debriefing your employees on what they can take away from their results.

'Diplomacy is the art of letting someone else have your way.' -Daniel Vare, Italian Diplomat

Everyone negotiates every day. Even though we may not even realise we are engaging in a negotiation, over the course of our lives we have developed techninques that have proven useful in gaining agreement from others. However, sometimes we find our 'proven negotiation techniques' being challenged. EMC supports organisations by developing individual's approaches to negotiations with both internal and external stakeholders that lead to productive future working relationships while at the same time ensuring outcomes are attained.





A common question asked about management and leadership is: Where does one stop and the other start? The role of the leader requires both and balance must be achieved for functions relating to task, people, and strategy.  Obtaining the right balance can be difficult as the needs of a team, the work flow, the organisational priorities, and the nature of a leadership job role all change over time. EMC can support your organisation in developing leaders and their requirements in terms of balance between a manager's efforts, and prioritisation of strategy, task, and people.

Stakeholder engagement

There is no single definition or framework for stakeholder engagement. All organisations conduct stakeholder engagement to some extent, whether with internal or external stakeholders, and identifying your stakeholders is as important as communicating with them effectively. EMC can support your organisation's capacity to effectively identify and engage with the people most impacted or impactful of your organisation.

'Tell me and I will forget, show me and I may remember, involve me and I will understand.' 

-Chinese Proverb




Change and Transition

Many change processes are structured and certain things must be completed by a certain time. We (should) know who's responsible for making those things happen.  However, change and transition is not this straightforward. This is because the most difficult part of a change process is how we guide people through it. EMC can support organisation leaders in structuring change and ensuring smooth transitions for individuals and teams within the organisation.



Business and process improvement

Utilising various analysis tools can reveal significance issues facing your organisation. It is crucial to undertake business and process evaluation to identify top priorities for consideration. These strategic issues are manifested as questions rather than answers and are the fundamental policy/strategy/leadership choices facing an organisation. EMC can support your organisation in understanding and approaching these choices strategically.




EMC coaches individuals one-on-one to effectively raise personal and external awareness, to focus on moving forward as an individual, and to improve personal performance. This enables the individual to be a catalyst for positive change in an organisation through a 'knock on effect' in terms of team and organisational performance, adaptability, openness, etc.
