• Clarify and define their visions
  • Align their people and processes
  • Create compelling business strategies for the future.

Influencing Options® works with leaders to become the leaders they always dreamed they could be—visionary influential, successful—creating loyal, committed employees and long-term success with their clients and customers.

How do we do this?

  1. We assess your current state
  2. Clearly identify your desired state
  3. Define the gap between the two

We identify not only what you need to do to get you where you want to go, but also how to get there faster with clarity and integrity.



Influencing Options® trainers and consultants believe that effective people always have options and that they work to resolve issues directly and respectfully.

We operate on some basic assumptions:

  • people want to do a good job
  • they want to be recognized for their contributions
  • they are generally motivated by intrinsic factors


In the workplace, people generally do better work, are happier in their work, and stay longer, when they get to operate from their talents and strengths. We believe in the balancing of accountability and respect when leading and communicating.

We commit and recommit to strive to deliver high levels of the Core Dimensions in all that we do.

We model what we teach and coach.
