Anyone in leadership has to persuade somebody at some point. You may need to persuade an employee to perform better, or service providers to up their game.

Here, in a thimble, are seven things persuasive people do:

  1. Have a clear purpose
  2. Listen, listen and listen
  3. Create a personal connection
  4. Agree on facts
  5. Offer some kind of satisfaction, giving ground where you can and holding your ground only when it matters
  6. When you ask a closing question, wait for the answer
  7. Know when to back off., republished by Time
