In just about any interaction with clients and/or colleagues, you may find the need to persuade them of your ideas, your products or services. The ability to persuade successfully seems to be a fundamental quality of successful people. Take leaders, scientists, artists, politicians, authors, or any successful celebrity. They have got where they are by being able to convince people of their abilities, vision, knowhow and mastery of what they do, and those who are good at it do it on a massive scale.
Persuasion is all about having the right attitude. You cannot imagine a good persuader who is shy and constantly looks down. On the other hand, persuasion is not about hard selling something to someone at any cost, even at the cost of significantly annoying them just for a one-off sale. Good persuasion happens when you are totally convinced and happily accept the view of the persuader. Sometimes you may not even realise you have been persuaded, you just know the correct course of action. Of course, this action could have been suggested by the persuader who have influenced you unconsciously.
In short, persuasion is about having the right attitude as well as knowing a number of useful techniques that can be employed when interacting with clients and/or colleagues.
