Our ability to communicate effectively is one of the most fundamental skills we possess. Whether in our personal or business lives, being able to properly convey our own ideas whilst also being sensitive to others' perspective can mean the difference between a relationship forging and a relationship damaging encounter.
But can it really be taught?
Many people have a fixed mindset when it comes to their own abilities in persuasion and influence. They often believe that other people are good at it, but that they themselves don't have the natural gift that is necessary to excel. However, this could not be further from the truth. Just like any other skill, it can be studied and mastered. This course is based on both decades of scientific research and decades of personal experience.
As such, this course seeks to improve your understanding of the the key psychological drivers. By better understanding the fundamentals of what makes people 'tick', we are then in an infinitely more powerful position when it comes to knowing how to react, and how to successfully influence those around us.
Our ability to communicate is at the epicentre of every human interaction. It is truly without hyperbole to say that upgrading your skills in persuasion and influence can undoubtedly improve every facet of your life.
