He referred to these tactics as six weapons of influence. These automatic fixed-pattern actions work well most of the time. These fixed-pattern actions are pretty prevalent in humans since, in many cases, they are the most efficient form of behavior, and in some cases, they are necessary. Such patterns reduce brain strain by allowing us to act without thinking in every situation. Photuris females mimic the mating signal of Photinus females to attract and eat their prey Photinus males.

They loved him. What separates ordinary communicators from truly successful persuaders? Using the same combination of rigorous scientific research and accessibility that made his Influence an iconic bestseller, Robert Cialdini explains how to capitalize on the essential window of time before you deliver an important message. Optimal persuasion is achieved only through optimal pre-suasion. Cialdini draws on his extensive experience as the most cited social psychologist of our time to illustrate how the Pre-Suasion process works and how it can be used in your organization.
He explains the techniques a person can implement, ethically, to become more influential both professionally and personally. His widely acclaimed studies are highly instructive to those who want to be more influential. Weaving compelling stories with evidence-based statistics makes this program memorable and immediately applicable. Here, Dr.
How can we effectively establish our authority and trustworthiness with those we meet for the first time? After we have given, what words can we use to increase dramatically the likelihood that we will receive in return? And, which is the most underused, yet effective, principle of persuasion? In this program, Dr. Cialdini answers all these questions and more.
Used correctly and ethically, these scientifically tested principles produce lasting relationships and strong, long-term change. When the science is available, why use anything else? During this profound presentation, Dr. Robert Cialdini briefly reviews the six research-based universal principles of influence.
He then focuses on those principles which are most effective under conditions of uncertainty. Those who learn how to apply these principles gain powerful leverage to bring about positive and lasting change in others, both inside and outside of their organization. Robert Cialdini, author of the groundbreaking books, Influence, and Pre-Suasion, is your guide in translating highly relevant but poorly-understood scientific research into practical business applications.
His books have sold more than five-million copies worldwide. Robert Cialdini has been frequently asked to speak to audiences about the principles of persuasion that scientific research indicates are most likely to spur others to change. In those presentations, something has emerged that invariably captures audience attention to a remarkable degree. If, while describing one or another of these psychological principles, Dr.
Bodies incline forward, faces lift to the stage, and pens hover above notepads. Audience members are responding to an attractive return-on-investment proposition. After all, to achieve most professional and personal goals, people need to be influential in their interactions with others; and reliable shortcuts in that pursuit are like found gold. In this new presentation, Dr.
Cialdini focuses on a set of small alterations that individuals can make to their persuasive attempts that research shows are likely to produce significant increases in their persuasive success. Finally, he stresses how individuals can employ such adjustments not only effectively but ethically as well to ensure the cultivation and enhancement of long-term, mutually beneficial relationships. This unique presentation explores what scientific research demonstrates about the ability of certain relationships to facilitate our goals.
Cialdini skillfully interprets the implications of these relationships both inside and outside the organization. Audience members learn the answers to such questions as: What can change rivals to make them want to work together? What can make seemingly unrelated, angry people bond together to accomplish meaningful goals?
What can make a negotiation more satisfying and come to fruition faster? What simple statement can lead to Unity? What simple request can do the same? And, how can this be accomplished ethically and effectively in business settings? Cialdini explores and answers these questions and more in this unique program. The Power of Unity shows how to develop, engage, and focus relationships for optimal working success. Like most things, the process can be handled poorly or well.
It can be employed to foster growth and to move people away from negative choices and in more positive directions, thereby creating the conditions for new opportunities. Or, it can be used clumsily, reducing the chance for genuine movement and, in the worst of cases, boomeranging into conflict and resentment.
As such, it is important for those wishing to lead effectively to understand fully the workings of the influence process. Fortunately, a vast body of scientific evidence now exists on how, when, and why people say yes to influence attempts. In his presentation, Dr. Robert B. Cialdini extracts from this formidable body of work the six universal principles of influence—those that are so powerful that they generate desirable change in the widest range of circumstances.
The principles are: Reciprocation. People are significantly more willing to comply with requests for favors, services, information, concessions, etc. People are more willing to be moved by a leader if they see the change as consistent with commitments they have previously and publicly made.
The particular combination of expertise and trustworthiness renders a leader the most persuasive communicator science has ever uncovered. Social Validation. People are more willing to perform a recommended action if a leader provides evidence that many similar others are performing it.
People find recommended opportunities more attractive to the degree that a leader can honestly position them as scarce, rare, or dwindling in availability. People say yes to the leaders they like. Cialdini emphasizes the non-manipulative use of the principles so that those who are influenced feel personally committed to the new direction and to their relationship with the leader.
It is only in this fashion that the influence process can be simultaneously effective, ethical, and enduring. And it is only in this fashion that it can enhance a lasting sense of partnership between those involved. But, arranging to hear it from colleagues, clients, customers, and even family members is not simple at all — at least not without knowing certain secrets of the persuasion process.
The dual purpose of this program is to reveal a valuable set of these powerful secrets to participants and to do so in a way that will enable them to achieve their professional goals more rapidly. In addition, the emphasis will be on how participants can increase the likelihood of Yes! Consequently, this program would be of particular benefit to those individuals and organizations that have a strong case to make but have not realized an equivalent return because critical others have not been convinced to open their ears and minds fully to that strong case.
The secrets of persuasion covered in the program are specifically designed to open such ears and minds. Persuasion is no longer just an inborn art, available only to those who instinctively know just what to say and when to say it. After more than a half-century of research, it has also become a solid science; and the researchers who study it have uncovered a set of hidden rules for moving people toward Yes!
It is ethically appropriate. There is an important distinction between persuasion and manipulation. The approaches advocated in this program can be used in entirely non-manipulative ways that never deceive or coerce others into assent.
In so doing, these ethical approaches preserve the personal relationships necessary for long-term business success. It is not widely known. The intent of the program is not to re-teach or reinforce what participants already know. Instead, it is to bring to light some little-recognized aspects of persuasion that will give them an advantage over competitors in two ways: 1 by covering research that in many cases is so new that it is unavailable to the general public, and 2 by showing how this new research often runs counter to common but mistaken tactics that rivals will continue to employ.
It can involve small changes in practice. A goal of the program is to show participants how to make relatively minor modifications to their persuasive practices that will result in major increases in their effectiveness. Although busy, overloaded participants may well be reluctant to learn and deploy large-scale changes to their existing workplace approaches, they are willing to make small alterations that they are convinced will lead to greater success.
For this reason, the program focuses on strategies that require small changes — a few words or the sequence of a few words — yet have the largest impact on Yes! So that participants can implement the program material immediately and with confidence, its content has been crafted to have the following elements: It is scientifically grounded. For this reason, the program focuses on strategies that require small changes — a few words or the sequence of a few words—yet have the largest impact on Yes!
