Class Description

Description

What you'll learn in this self improvement class:

Bringing about the reaction you want from others and expanding your influence require insights that go beyond the actual process of influencing—and into the psychology of what truly prompts us to say yes or no.

This 2-day influencer training explores these psychological triggers, plus how this knowledge may be used not just for compliance but for mutually desirable outcomes. You’ll uncover persuasion techniques that most people don’t even know exist, and learn how to build your influence by applying these principles to any number of business interactions, from managing, mentoring and negotiating to conversations, writing and presentations. In addition, you will learn how to choose the best principle for any given situation and avoid being manipulated by others.

Who Should Attend

Business professionals at a midlevel position and above who need to understand the psychological principles behind how people are convinced to do something, including sales managers, VP/directors of sales, account executives, project managers and product managers, purchasing managers and marketing managers.
