Overview

Every day we're placed in situations that require the ability to influence another person or group. It could be a business meeting, a political or issues driven campaign, even a personal conversation. While many of us think a pile of facts should do the trick, there is an art and science to persuasion. This workshop is drawn from the Harvard Kennedy School's popular two week intensive "Persuasion: The Science and Art of Effective Influence."

Expected Outcomes

  • Learn principles and techniques of effective persuasion
  • Assess your personal strengths and weaknesses in persuasion
  • Learn how to make a presentation, pitch, or chat more effectively.

WHO: People interested in learning how to more effectively use persuasion in their personal and professional lives.

WHEN: Contact us to schedule a training.

COST: $TBD
