Influencing Others


It is not uncommon to spend a lot of our time trying to resolve differences with others and attempting to convince other people to do something in a way that results in a favorable conclusion for both parties. To deal with these situations in an appropriate manner requires us to be able to understand and apply different situational techniques to effectively influence others.
