The Way You Think Is More Important Than What You Know

How To Resolve Difficult, Ongoing Problems and Behaviors By Changing Thinking Patterns

Resolve conflict, unlock potential, and create permanent change by uncovering and changing unempowering belief patterns in yourself and others.

Communication Stress

Every person, team, and organization has beliefs whether they know what they are or not. Of course, many of these beliefs are useful and serve us well, but some are unempowering and result in unwanted and sometimes destructive behaviors that affect the individual, team, and organization.

If you or your organization have every been "stuck", it's likely that your beliefs are keeping you locked in a comfort zone that is preventing you from getting what you want. Fortunately, these beliefs can be changed once you know what they are.

But... because beliefs are usually unconscious, they can’t be changed by logic or direct confrontation, so in this this session you will learn how to recognize and uncover the five major types of beliefs and how to resolve problems by shifting (not necessarily changing) them for yourself and others.

Motivate yourself and others by uncovering beliefs and changing them if appropriate.
Resolve difficult situations and behaviors by uncovering and resolving the true causes.

How To Make Your Products and Ideas Irresistibly Attractive

Uncover what anyone really wants and give it to them - even if they don't know what it is.

Positive Persuasion

In today's competitive world, even if you aren't a "salesperson" selling "products", you almost certainly need to present your ideas in ways that make it easy for people to adopt them and agree with you.

But... nobody wants to be “sold”, do they? Of course not.

Nor do you necessarily want to "sell" them - it's much better to find out what they really want (even if they don't know what it is) and give it to them. This creates a win/win relationship that benefits everyone and makes you a valued partner, not an adversary.

Fortunately, even though these situations are very different, the best way to approach them is the same. Positive Persuasion™ shows you how with an easy-to-learn and easy-to-use system so you can have influence in any situation without friction.

Create win/win outcomes by using the seven words that reveal a person's true motivation.
