Today on the podcast, we’re talking about being persuasive (what it is NOT, and what it really is), a couple key components of any attempt to persuade, and finally, six tactics to help someone break free of their unproductive thinking habits. I’m going to show you a better way to be persuasive.
Persuading people is so easy, though, right? You just, you know, get up in their face and go off on a long, blustery monologue…oh, wait. No you don’t. Real persuasion is so much more than just making someone see something your way!
