Persuasive communication is the art of convincing others to accept a particular point of view or idea. Persuasion has been used in many different ways for centuries and is, without a doubt, one of the most powerful tools at our disposal. Persuasive Communication can be an art form that some people master more than others, but it’s important- no matter what profession you’re in-to know how to persuade people. Persuasion plays such a central role in business, selling, job interviews and conflict resolution; knowing how to use it properly will benefit any company or individual!
In this podcast persuasive communication expert Jeff Tippett shares huge insight around the benefits of it, he also shares his interesting story of how he became an expert in this field and shares some great insights.
Based on his new, best-selling book, “Unleashing Your Superpower: Why Persuasive Communications is the Only Force You Will Ever Need,” Jeff Tippett boldly declares that we live or die based on our ability to persuade others. No one understands this need more than people responsible for the sales goals of an organization.
Jeff shares all of these secrets within the framework of his emotional story of adopting his youngest daughter from Haiti. With several near-death experiences and failure compounding failure, he began a transformative journey of unmasking the keys to persuading others. And with the life of a precious baby on the line, Jeff quickly learned that success wasn’t built on his ability to complete a to-do list; victory is achieved by persuading others toward a common goal.
Understanding the necessary components of effective persuasion is crucial to success. Some have been trained in “sales” techniques that sound good–but they don’t work. And in reality, it’s not their fault; most training in persuasion is a gimmick or just a disguised form of manipulation. Manipulation never works in the bigger picture, and it doesn’t help develop long-term, loyal customers. And isn’t that the ultimate goal?
So, what does it take to transform us into excellent persuasive communicators? It’s not as daunting as it seems.
Jeff shares his personal story and what he learned to help others transform their lives, and show them how decisions they make can have a butterfly effect and impact the lives of many for the greater good.
