Persuasion is an art!
Influence occurs everywhere: in your studies, at work, at home, everywhere you may be influenced or you may be influencing others. Sharp arguments and a compelling vision go a long way. But also using your charm, choosing your words wisely and being emphatic are essential ingredients for more influence.
Effective persuasion is about setting people in motion. During this workshop you will gain insight into what moves people and how to motivate them for your proposals. It's about using clever tricks, but also about sensitivity and understanding group dynamics. We will work on practical techniques that will make your communication authentic and respectful as well as more effective.
We will work on the basis of four themes:
1. Inspiration - motivating and encapsulating speech
2. Sharp argumentation - dismantling false arguments and fallacies
3. Charisma - non-verbal communication of (world) leaders
4. Tactical Communication - creating support and dealing with resistance
Learning by doing:
Learning by doing is the motto, so you can expect practical exercises in which you will put the effectiveness of your communication style firmly to the test!
