What is an Influence Coach?

An influence coach is an expert in the field of persuasion, with specialist skills and knowledge in the psychology of bringing people around to your way of thinking. Skills like building rapport, effective communication, persuasive speaking, convincing body language, public speaking, and tapping into emotion are all skills that you can develop through influence coaching.

Art of Charisma can be your support to reach new levels of charisma. For example:

  • People who want to lose weight have a personal trainer.
  • Start-up founders have business mentors.
  • People looking to retire have a financial planner.
  • You have an influence coach.

An influence coach can support you to develop charisma, influence, and persuasion authentically so that you can get more of what you want.

What Happens in an Influence Coaching Session?

As influencing someone is a physical skill, I have developed influence coaching to be a very practical form of self-improvement that includes open-floor discussion, video analysis, and activities.


Open-floor discussion forms part of your influence coaching session where you have a safe space to discuss your challenges, successes, and experiences. Your influence coach is there to ask you questions, challenge you, and share methods and techniques so that when you are in similar situations, you can tackle them more effectively.

Video Analysis

The sessions also include elements of video analysis where you watch individuals use the techniques to influence someone and you analyze the footage with your coach. During these sessions, you can see the effectiveness of the techniques as well as what happens when things go wrong.


One of the most effective elements to improve your influence is the role-playing activities you will conduct with your coach. You can get real-life experience using the techniques in a safe environment by practicing with your influence coach.

Benefits of Influence Coaching

There are a range of benefits you will get through influence coaching, such as:

  • Getting that dream job, role, or promotion you truly deserve
  • Speaking up and articulating clearly and confidently at meetings
  • Influencing your colleagues, clients, and bosses to get what you want
  • Creating amazing first impressions and leaving a lasting impact on others
  • Being described as confident, charming, and extremely likable
