Course description

Persuasive Dialogue™

Most business people's power to affect change comes through influence rather than mandate. In any organization, there are always a few people who seem to influence everyone else independent of job title, position, or authority. These are the influential people with a knack for persuasion.

But what do these people do that makes them persuasive? Successful persuaders are those who understand the viewpoints of others and then use that information to clearly present their own. You can master these and other skills that will make you both persuasive and influential.

In two intensive days, you’ll learn to use a six-step dialogue process to comfortably and effectively persuade others.
