How often do you need others to take a particular action or change their mind on an issue? Ever wonder why some individuals are more successful at achieving these outcomes? What can you do to get the same results? Anyone can be influenced or persuaded; the challenge is learning what techniques really work, what approaches often do not, and why. At the seminar, you will
- Discover how to enhance your credibility
- Learn several techniques for approaching those who are sincerely interested in what you have to say
- Seven techniques to use when people are stressed and inattentive.
All of these approaches will help you to positively alter the behaviors, attitudes and beliefs of others to enable you to achieve the results you need at work.Lori Silverman
