Principles of Persuasion
Getting your message across is one thing. Convincing the other person often requires a lot more effort. Persuasion plays a key role in your ability to influence others and achieve results. You rely on our persuasive skills to convince our customers to sign a contract, to get support from our colleagues for a new project, or to convince your managers to invest in a project.
- Are you always successful?
- Did you always get the outcome you wanted?
- Do you think you used the correct approach in your negotiations?
Persuasive communication involves more than just coming up with strong arguments and counter criticism. There are many different techniques you can use to influence others and you could be far more successful if we knew what approach to use in what situation.
What is the workshop about?
In this one day workshop, we go “inside” the psychology of persuasion to understand how and why it works. We focus on the techniques that marketers and salespeople use to design compelling messages, and explore why some messages are more persuasive than others. Through hands-on exercises based on our Persuasion Board Game, this workshop enables you to develop your persuasive skills and abilities to sell your products and ideas.
What will you learn?
By the end of the workshop, the participants will be able to:
- Apply proven principles of persuasion and influence to ensure a positive outcome
- Understand your own typical persuasion style
- Plan and present your ideas and strategies in the most persuasive way possible
