The Emotionally Intelligent Person’s Guide To Being Persuasive | Fast Company

The Emotionally Intelligent Person’s Guide To Being Persuasive | Fast Company | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

You’re a pretty rational person, or so you think: You’re often good at thinking logically and keeping your feelings out of it, right?

Wrong. (Sorry!) It wasn’t long ago that people believed emotions and logic were two completely separate things, operating independently of one another. But breakthroughs in brain science have made it clear that that’s far from true. It turns out that our brains are incapable of making fully unemotional decisions. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, though. In fact, you can use that cognitive reality in your favor to build relationships, network, and gain influence.

These ridiculously simple brain hacks can subtly encourage people to decide in your favor.

Vanessa Ong Li Wen's curator insight, March 19, 12:14 PM
I agree that at times, we need to angle our argument that targets one’s emotional capacity so as to strengthen the message we are trying to convey and be more persuasive. Although logic is an important factor in allowing people to understand what you are trying to say, simply informing them and convincing them are two separate matters. In essence, using positive emotions to encourage people to believe in you is the right way to go. Once they feel that they have established the connection with you, they will naturally be more inclined to believe whatever it is you are trying to say.

Ten Tips for Building Stronger Networks in Work and Life

Ten Tips for Building Stronger Networks in Work and Life | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Most people understand that to be successful, they need to network. But actually going out and doing it is another matter. People “are daunted by the task and believe it requires inauthentic, uncomfortable behavior and is an activity that is inconsistent with focusing on job performance,” says Jeffrey Pfeffer, a Stanford professor of organizational behavior, who covers the subject of networking as part of his Paths to Power elective course. Too often, he says, people view networking “as something that ‘is not them’ or that they could not see themselves doing.”

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, June 1, 2014 10:58 PM

For many, success comes with networking. Take for example, the Insurance industry, or for that effect Multi -Level Marketing schemes. In many cases it is all about knowing a large number of people. You might as well call it the Social Quotient, or Social intelligence! Isn't it high time we learned more about the art of building a sound Social Network? The article mentions ten tips for building a sound social network which are most helpful!

ACTIONS Speak Louder Than Words

ACTIONS Speak Louder Than Words | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Actions speak louder than words. You send a message with what you say AND what you do. If words aren’t supported with actions, they will ring hollow.

(From the article): So, any time you make a claim, no matter how small, and display inconsistent behavior, you shatter the comfort zone –– and weaken your bond of trust with others. As a result, anything thought to be predictable in the future may be treated as suspect. The fact is, everything you do in life sends a message. So, make sure to practice what you preach. As Ben Franklin said, “Well done is better than well said.”
