Online access to the course opens May 31 with two assessments to help you identify and prioritize your greatest opportunities for improvement. The first will measure your IQ (influence quotient), and the second will measure your current influence knowledge. You’ll also use the assessments to track your progress over the next year.
You’ll have an opportunity for three personal coaching calls during the course. You will schedule these while completing the items in the ‘Getting Started’ module online.
You’ll then go through the modules below. Each module includes one or more videos, a workbook download, and quizzes to reinforce learning. You’ll have approximately 4 hours of videos to watch over the 6 week course. When you complete a video, the quiz will open. When you complete the quiz, the next video will open.
Although there are online workbooks you can download, I already printed them for you, and added them to your primary workbook. The workbook contains exercises to help you apply what you learn. The sooner you watch the videos, the more opportunities you’ll have to practice before our first webinar on June 20.
Each week you will have self-directed online content to complete before attending the webinars. The sooner in the week you complete the online content, the more opportunities you’ll have to practice those new skills prior to the webinars.

Setting you up for success:
Please complete the following by the deadlines to stay on track and be ready for the first webinar on Monday, June 20:
You will have an opportunity to participate in 3 20-minute coaching calls with Erica Johnson during the course. Once you complete the two online assessments and the pre-coaching form, you will be linked to a calendar where you can choose a time for each of the 3 coaching calls. Choose one time in each date range:
Videos will be on for these calls. The purpose of the first call is to determine your goals and answer any questions you may have.
You will have a second coaching call just before webinar 2 and a third after webinar 4.
Choose your topic:
Choose a topic that you can cover in 2-3 minutes. Stretch yourself – don’t use a topic you’ve done before. Prepare as you normally would, but no more than 20 minutes. Choose an audience that you will hypothetically deliver the talk to. It could be your team, your boss, or even a group of 100.
Don’t overthink the topic or the audience. Just choose something that is relevant, new, and stretches you that you can practice in 2-3 minutes. You can discuss ideas on your coaching call if that would be helpful.
