Speaking Persuasively – The Charismatic Communicator
Persuasion is the art of getting people to do something they wouldn’t ordinarily do if you didn’t ask.
In general we don’t get what we want by lying down, screaming hysterically and drumming our heels on the floor. This workshop involves a more subtle process in which we consciously seek to establish rapport with the persons we are trying to persuade. Those people who are interested in other people find easy to build rapport, but these skills can also be learned. This workshop will help you to acquire some simple techniques which will help you to do so. The art of persuasion, of influencing the people around you, is a vital skill in the workplace. Without it you will be simply ineffective. Sure you can get people to do what you want by exercising your authority and bend people to your iron will by coercion or manipulation, but at the cost of trust and long term co-operation. Today businesses are run largely by cross-functional teams of peers and populated by baby boomers that show little tolerance for unquestioned authority. Work today gets done in an environment where people don’t just ask ‘what should I do?’, but ‘why should I do it?’ To answer this ‘why’ question effectively is to persuade. What separate the master persuaders from the rest it’s that they have an ability to understand what is going on in the other person’s head. More and more researches confirm that both in our working and personal lives it is persuasive skills that separate those who succeed from those who are less successful.
