Sell Not Tell

Have you ever had a boss or manager who constantly manipulated you? Was your relationship with this boss a good one? A significant part of being a successful leader is being able to motivate others to action and common goals. Successful leadership is never manipulation or coercion – but rather persuasion. When done right, you build trust, respect and rapport and eventually bring others towards your goals. In order to do this, leaders use the power of persuasion in an effort to guide and lead others.

In this workshop, you will learn how persuasive leadership differs from manipulation.  Discover strategies to help you increase your effectiveness as a leader in any setting.  Do you have to be a manager to lead?  Learn more!
