This course covers many areas related to persuasion such as understanding human psychology, how people make decisions, telling good stories, boosting confidence, emotional persuasion and so on. Each technique is presented with numerous examples in different settings. A variety of areas are explored such as one-to-one conversations, writing a pitch, giving a speech and writing and delivering a persuasive story.

Since persuasion is a skill that touches on many areas of human behaviour, the best way to become better at is to address each area separately and practice it using isolated exercises. This is indeed the approach taken in this course as participants get to focus on various areas in isolation until they become better in each of them. At the end, participants are placed in realistic scenarios using a number of general persuasion exercises and are encouraged to use all their skills in synchrony.

This course is highly suitable for auditors who need to persuade others to take action.
