Language of Influence

Ever struggle to communicate with some people and not others? You will learn simple questions to help you pinpoint anyone’s motivation style and irresistible language to motivate the “difficult” people in your life–meeting planners, employees and family.

Participants will learn and practice five key questions that can determine a person’s motivation style and influencing language to connect with them.

Key takeaways for attendees

  • Different motivation styles speak different “languages”
  • You can learn to detect and speak the influencing language of other motivation styles to create cooperation instead of conflict
  • You will learn how to distinguish motivation and manipulation

Closing Session:

Kristin J. Arnold, MBA, CSP, CPF Master
