Maximize Your Influence

You could have the greatest product in the world, but if there is no trust, there is no sale. Trust can be ambiguous, but certain things are pretty clear: 1) You can’t get others to trust you unless you first trust yourself; and 2) your message will not be convincing to others unless it’s convincing to you.

Whenever someone tries to influence us, in our minds, we ask ourselves, “Can I trust this person? Do I believe him? Is she concerned about me?” We are less likely to be influenced if we sense that the person trying to persuade us is driven solely by self-interest.

Trust is the glue that holds the entire persuasion process together. Trust is created when you put your audience’s interests and wants before your own. Research shows that, deep down, people want to trust others.

Gaining and keeping trust for both the short and long term is vital to your success as a persuader.  Do people trust you?  Are you sure?  What is the one element of trust that most people don’t have on their radar?  How to you create that instant trust from your prospect?

Not only do charismatics use your gestures in the right way, they also have the ability to read and interpret nonverbal gestures.  You can read people like a book and obtain the knowledge you need to adjust yourself and your presentation based on what body language you are reading.  When you can read and be aware of your body language, you can synchronize your nonverbals to create instant likeability and rapport.  You can create positive subconscious triggers.  If you don’t have control of your nonverbals, you could come across as flustered, nervous, or out of control.
