7 things really persuasive people do | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it
Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

While many people don't like to sell, most find themselves having to persuade someone at some point. Persuasion is not just for salespeople and their prospects. You may try to persuade an employee to perform better, or perhaps you want to persuade your boss to take on your brilliant idea.

Often the most effective persuaders are your kids. Somehow they come by it naturally while you, the adult, has to work hard to find the persuasive path to success.

Whatever your persuasive need, here are 7 things that the most persuasive people consistently do:

7 Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Start Getting Stuff Done

7 Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Start Getting Stuff Done | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

If you're like many of my clients prior to them seeing me, you might have a hard time getting started with projects and completing tasks. Maybe you do everything but what you need to be doing. Perhaps you watch TV instead of cleaning your house. You socialize instead of finishing a work project, or surf the Internet instead of writing that business plan you've been meaning to do for the longest time.

You essentially avoid that which you deem to be uncomfortable. It’s an adaptive response to stress, fear, and anxiety. The problem with this tactic is, by putting off an important task, it ultimately leads to more stress, greater fear, more anxiety — and of course not completing the task.

This procrastination can lead to feelings of guilt, inadequacy, and depression — all of which can kill motivation and creativity and perpetuate the unproductive cycle. Poor time management, feeling overwhelmed, unrealistic standards, or just plain laziness are a few possible reasons for procrastination.

8 Ways Emotionally Intelligent People Deal With Toxic People | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Life is stressful enough for most of us. Allowing a toxic individual to ravage your immediate environment can cause havoc in your mental well-being, which can lead to physical challenges.

A bad state of mind not only affects your physical well-being but makes it difficult for you to respond calmly under pressure. Ninety percent of top performers are skilled at managing their emotions, so your ability to perform effectively can be affected if you do not adopt strategies that will allow you to deal with toxic people.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

Toxic people poison those around them, and gain satisfaction from creating disorganization and a stressful atmosphere. Here are some ways to overcome them.

5 Ways to Handle a High Pressure Meeting

5 Ways to Handle a High Pressure Meeting | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

It's easy to let even a simple meeting get out of hand. Maintaining control is important; the room can sense when you are flustered, you easily forget your train of thought and control over the outcome.

I used some of the following techniques to maintain control over the meeting and bring the team back to a successful conclusion:


Slow It Down


It is common to increase your speech when you are nervous. To truly connect with your audience, you must slow down instead and control the speed of the discussion.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

The simplest meeting can turn into a high-pressure situation. A few simple techniques can help you keep control and moving towards a successful resolution.

Garder le contrôle de vos réunions et surtout les rendre efficaces.

Adele Taylor's curator insight, August 26, 5:48 PM

Some very good tips,  for keeping even the best thought out meetings in check.

I think the most important tip which can go cross more then just controlling a meeting is that it is ok to say that you don't know something.

26 Questions to Motivate Yourself and Break Out of a Professional Rut

26 Questions to Motivate Yourself and Break Out of a Professional Rut | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Sometimes, being asked the right question at the right moment is a powerful motivator. Case in point: My dad said to me at college graduation, "We know what you can do. But who are you going to be?" At the time, I wanted a job and hadn’t yet realized how connected employment is with happiness and life’s purpose. I was a bit too hungover to come up with a good answer in the moment. However, the question stuck with me, and it resurfaces when I'm off-track.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

Asking yourself the right questions is a great way to get some valuable perspective on your life and career. Here are 26 to get you started.
