How to Influence a Skeptical Audience in Three Simple Steps

May 11th, 2021
@11:00 AM EST

Being influential can be challenging in-and-of-itself; being influential with a skeptical audience poses its own unique difficulties. Engaging with people who seem dubious or doubtful in the face of your really good ideas can feel like being in a mental tug of war.
Andrea P. Howe, co-author of The Trusted Advisor Fieldbook and Founder of The Get Real Project, will lead an interactive “deep dive” discussion on three critical steps required to help a skeptical audience hear what you have to say. Specifically, you’ll learn:

  •  Why you should actually celebrate that they’re resistant;
  • How to open the conversation or presentation in an unexpected way that’s unexpectedly effective;
  • Specific techniques to listen masterfully while your audience has their guard up; and
  • How and when to bring your perspectives into the exchange.
