If so many of us want to increase our influence, then why are we so bad at persuading others to see our point of view?
1. You want to win.
2. You ask loaded questions.
3. You don’t have enough ammunition.
Stop thinking of persuasion as a battle. Stop asking loaded questions. Stop advocating without the knowledge needed. Do these things and you will be on your way to creating alliances instead of alienation and that is the ultimate win-win scenario.
