All you need to know about the skill of persuasion, in order to get the most out of your business operations

Persuasion is not the same as negotiation, which is more geared towards a compromise or a degree of backing down. Rather persuasion is the power to convince the opposing party to your way of thinking either through means of influence, power or motivation. This book covers key tactics to guarantee persuasiveness; language appropriate to persuasion; relating benefits to individuals (the tailored approach); credibility; Avoid exaggeration; adding a demonstration; maximizing your chances; handling and overcoming objections; respecting alternative choices; and dealing with "maybe."
