  • The Power of Persuasion
    • Changing people’s behavior
  • 6 principles of persuasion
  • 1) Reciprocity We feel obligated to return favours to people who have done favours for us in the past.
  • Practical Tip #1 Do people favours.
  • Don’t Forget
  • The magic part…
  • No problem! I’m glad to help you. I’m sure that if the situation were reversed, you would do the same for me.
  • Reciprocity also applies to concessions
    • If I give something up, you should give something up too.
      • When asking for something, start with the big ask
    Practical Tip #2
      • then move to the small ask
  • Practical Tip #3 Frame decisions in terms of losses, not gains
  • If you don’t do this, you could be at risk to lose…
  • 6 principles of persuasion 1) Reciprocity We feel obligated to return favours to people who have done favours for us in the past.
  • 2) Scarcity
  • We value information and commodities that are scarce more then when they are abundant.
  • Exclusive information is like bread- serve it fresh to best enjoy
  • 6 principles of persuasion 1) Reciprocity We feel obligated to return favours to people who have done favours for us in the past. 2) Scarcity We value scarce information and commodities more then things that are in abundance.
  • 3) Authority
    • We believe what trustworthy and credible experts say
      • To be seen as an expert, you need credentials and trust worthiness
  • Practical Tip #4 Before you give your strongest argument or proposal, begin by pointing out the weaknesses or drawbacks

  • 4) Commitment People are most likely to do what is consistent with what they have done in the past
  • Example: People are more likely to give you money if you first get them to give you the time. Do you know what time it is? Spare a quarter?
  • Written commitments are the most powerful
  • Practical Tip #5 Once someone has said yes to something, they will again- always try to deepen your existing relationships.

  • Practical Tip #6 Make sure you (or your product) is seen as in high demand.

  • 6) Likability People are more likely to say yes to people they like
  • 3 elements of likability
  • Similarities We like people that are similar or have similar interest as us.
  • Compliments People like genuine compliments.
  • Cooperative Efforts People like people who are willing to help out.
  • Be Careful!!!! If you aren’t genuine, it won’t work.
  • Practical Tip #6 Try to make people like you. But don’t try too hard, that won’t work.
  • Sounds easy?
    • Application is the hard part.
