In speech-language pathology, we are taught to be effective clinicians but are rarely taught how to influence others, despite the fact that this is a key skill in professional, clinical, supervisory, and even personal situations. In this course, participants will learn effective strategies to help them communicate and interact with others (i.e., patients, families, co-workers, and subordinates) in order to influence them to follow their lead.
