Presented by Ken O’Quinn
How do leaders inspire others to act? Join us for lunch and a live webinar to learn communications techniques used by leaders to share their vision, foster cooperation and spur action.
Like every leader, as a PR pro you face a daily challenge of having to influence those around you. Perhaps you need to convince management that your idea is better than someone else’s, or you want to persuade colleagues to sign up for a new program. What motivates people to comply with your request or accept your opinion?
In this webinar, get a revealing look at research from leading social scientists in the field of persuasion. You’ll explore principles of behavioral psychology that you can use every day, even in email, to move people toward your point of view. You’ll also:
- Learn how to strengthen your credibility when the audience doesn’t view you as credible.
- Find out how to hold attention in the body of the message with persuasive tactics that influence the audience’s thinking.
- Discover behavioral triggers that will impact an audience’s emotions.
