Persuasive Skills Course: Persuading for Results®

This persuasive skills course will focus on Persuading for Results® and will prepare you to win business. In this increasingly complex world, the skill of persuasion is becoming more valuable. Competitors are hungry for business and are aggressively discounting their prices. In challenging economic conditions, winning business is getting tougher.

Persuading customers to increase your share of their spend needs a higher skill than simply presenting information. In this persuasive skills course we focus on persuasion where the objective is to get the decision makers or audience to take action. Having executives and senior manager's act is not just about providing a technical solution, not just about logic, it is about moving them to a decision.

Prospects will respond when you use emotion plus logic, to show them you understand their critical needs and you can show them you provide better value than other best-in-class competitors.

To win and change you need to: build relationships with decision makers and audiences faster; reduce audience's uncertainty about your solution; motivate decision  makers and audiences to act faster.

This intensive persuasive skills course includes the Persuading for Results Model®, a unique process to help you confidently persuade. It highlights the need to manage both emotion and logic with key internal and external stakeholders. Participants will learn to persuade by communicating how they will create value and how they will seek actions for commitment.
