Influence And Persuasion

When we speak about persuasion and influence, we often refer to marketing and sales. We do, however, exert control in a variety of forms and regularly. You should need to persuade your manager if you want a raise. There is always influence when you want to persuade your team to accept a move, assist your employees in making decisions, or pick the best lunch spot. This workshop will teach learners how to convince and persuade others in several situations.
