How would you like to snap your fingers and have your colleagues instantly agree with you? It may not be that easy, but you can dramatically improve your chances for success if you understand how people make decisions and what causes them to act. This webinar is a dynamic virtual program that draws on the latest scientific research to show you how to influence people, especially during uncertain times like these. You're guaranteed to leave with practical ideas you can apply right away. 


  • Discover the elements you must have to win over any skeptical mind. 
  • Use the four key drivers of persuasion to gain buy-in and acceptance of your ideas.
    Assess and overcome the common mistakes most people make when trying to change someone's mind. 
  • Choose to leave much of the conventional wisdom about influence behind (most of it doesn't work anyway).
