Real Influence: Persuade Without Pushing and Gain Without Giving In
Jan 16, 2013
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EST
Complimentary Meeting Number: 17806-00001

Listening, Engagement, Commitment: The Path to Win-Win Outcomes.
In this post-pushing, post-selling world, influence can no longer be viewed as something you do to someone to get what you want. People today are more aware than ever before about self-serving tricks and tactics being used on them.

In fact, gaining real influence isn’t even about what you want.

Based on the presenters’ decades of experience and extensive interviews with high-level influencers—people in business, government, nonprofits, sports, the arts, and more — Goulston and Ullmen share what they’ve learned about the remarkable power of real influence and offer insights for tapping into it, including:
  • The simple four-step model that will help you connect with people you thought were unreachable
  • How to get past the “blind spot” in our brains that makes connecting and influencing impossible
  • How to avoid bad influence habits that can disconnect you from your team, your clients, your family, and others
  • How listening with a real motive to learn and understand will change a relationship instantly
  • Ways to repair a reputation damaged by trying to influence via manipulation
  • Why one of the biggest factors in becoming a power influencer is gratitude
