Think for a moment of your definition of persuasion. If you are like most businesspeople I have encountered. You see Persuasion as a relatively straightforward process. First, you strongly state your position. Second, you outline the supporting arguments, followed by a highly assertive, database exposition. Finally, you enter the deal-making stage and work toward a “close”. In other Words, you use logic, persistence, and personal enthusiasm to get others to buy a good idea. The reality is that following this process is one surefire way to fail at persuasion.
Persuasion, in fact, involves demands-compromise. Perhaps that is why the most effective persuaders seem to share a common trait. They are open-minded, never dogmatic. They enter the persuasion process prepared to adjust their viewpoints and in corporate others’ ideas, When colleagues see that a persuader is eager to hear their views and willing to make changes in response to their needs and concerns, they respond very positively.
