How can leaders be more persuasive?

2018-05-14 22:24:24

You must learn to lead by persuasion. If you can't convince others or convince them, you can't be a leader. If you find it difficult to ask someone to make a change, the best thing to do is to focus on the reaction you want to provoke, not just what you want to say. It is a wonderful experience to boldly try to convince others to accept an idea without hesitation, to commit to an unexpected action, or to pursue an unproven vision. The essence of leadership is that you can create an exciting atmosphere around yourself. Listen to leadership; It is the sound of your eloquence, your power of persuasion, to attract others' attention. The purpose of leadership is not to make people soft, but as long as you are careful enough to light a spark in them, eventually the spark will rise into a roaring flame. You must learn to lead by persuasion. If you can't convince others or convince them, you can't be a leader. If you find it difficult to ask someone to make a change, the best thing to do is to focus on the reaction you want to provoke, not just what you want to say. To elicit the "I never thought of it that way" response, you have to express excitement and enthusiasm about the leap you've made from forming a theory to coming up with imaginative new claims on a scale yet unknown. What new tools can you use to persuade people to change their minds? With imaginary arguments, exaggerated language, music, and incessant drumming? Oh, maybe. But there are some more advanced communication skills you can master. Your goal is not to force people against their will, but to give them an opportunity to see things from a new perspective. To initiate change and create a new future, you must acknowledge your weaknesses, show passion and belief in an untested idea, and risk failure in pursuit of that idea. You need to find a speaking style that works for you and expresses your strong beliefs in a convincing and irrefutable way. Leadership AIDS If your goal is to make more of an impact, you need to deliver your message with a passion that your audience will find hard to resist. Perhaps you need to reassure people, help them overcome their reluctance to embrace new ideas, or break through a state of indifference. Here are six useful tools: · Threaten or emphasize consequences. You can force, threaten, or intimidate lazy or complacent people into doing their jobs. That's why every company has one or two bullies. As a manager on a team, just having a goal that everyone can agree on is often enough to motivate them to work hard. However, if someone is behind schedule or a faction is in disobedience, find a way to step up from the group and take on leadership responsibilities. One common leadership skill is threat: reinforce the sense of crisis and urgency of a task, and keep the laggard on board. You need to create a unique way to exercise your power. Once you learn to be honest about the consequences, you don't have to bluff people into believing what you're saying. · Show enthusiasm and pathos. A good story from the heart can change an audience's response. Its persuasion comes from its sincerity. See how Colin Powell deeply moved a hostile, skeptical audience. In 2003, then-Secretary of State Colin Powell spoke at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. He was asked why the UN should rely on hard power (military action) rather than soft power (diplomatic dialogue). After a moment's silence, he spoke from the bottom of his heart with the sincerity of a military statesman. "I was a soldier for 35 years." "Soft power was not what saved Europe from World War II. Over the past 100 years, the United States has sent countless young men and women to fight in other countries, many of them to their deaths. But we never asked for wealth or territory, we just wanted a piece of land where we could bury them." A friend of mine was there. "It was as if all the sharp edges in the room were pulling back, all the tight faces were softening -- you could feel the change," he recalls. It is always very persuasive to express ideas with emotion, based on your own experiences and beliefs.
