ACTIVITY: persuading

“Take advantage of every opportunity to practice your communication skills so that when important occasions arise, you will have the gift, the style, the sharpness, the clarity, and the emotions to affect other people.”

Jim Rohn

Have you been using the Influence Template? If not, now may be the time to have a look. The template provides an overview of what we have covered during the program and a structure for thinking about how you might influence someone, though it is unlikely that you will use every element in the template in a single interaction.

What opportunities do you have in the coming weeks to influence others? What will be your strategy and what tactics will you use?

Time to experiment. Please share your experiences, positive and negative, in the comments below.


Don’t mark this topic complete until you have practised using a variety of the persuasion approaches.
