This course has already taken place.

Everyday 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." Using proven principles of persuasion, learn how to make a presentation, pitch, or chat more effective.
