Becoming more influential
Show respect for others opinions. Don’t argue and never tell them “you’re wrong.”
Admit when you’re wrong, and do it quickly. Don’t hide from your mistakes or failures.
Give people sugar with their tea, start out friendly. Don’t rush into asking for things from others.
Get others saying “yes,” immediately. Don’t do most of the talking.
Let the other person feel the idea is theirs. Don’t outshine the person in power.
Dramatize your ideas. Don’t limit yourself to facts, build stories around them.
Throw down a challenge. Don’t tell people what they should do.
