Persuasion is often the main use of means in order to get a person to do something in which you want them to do. This article contains ideas of different approaches that you can use in order to get the attention of someone so that you can persuade them to do something that you want them to do for you.

Key Takeaways:

  • The four presentation approaches below are in dire need of updating because they lead to anemic messages that weaken our persuasion.
  • Agendas are somewhat rewarding, because they hold the promise of organization, but promising organization does not guarantee sustained focus and persuasion.
  • Typing the word Agenda in a slide and searching a stock photo database for “business people talking” takes minutes. Coming up with a rewarding title and visualizing it well takes hours.
