We humans rarely agree. We argue and debate and nothing ever seems to be resolved. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could cut through the clutter and create consensus for your ideas and proposals? Of course it would. But to get there, you have to stop arguing and start asking questions.
In this program, author and Humanist Jennifer Hancock will discuss recent research on how ideas are formed and changed to help you learn how to more effectively persuade people to your point of view. Understanding why and how to turn conversations around using Socratic questioning techniques will help you frame the underlying moral debate to your advantage.
