What Dr. Nick Morgan Talks About:
The Art and Science of Persuasion
It's difficult to get anyone's attention these days, let alone persuade them to think differently, buy your product, or embrace your cause. And yet recent advances in neuroscience are now showing how persuasion works - and how you can increase your persuasive power rapidly and effectively. In this interactive talk, Dr. Nick Morgan shows audiences how to become more persuasive, get more attention, and win others over to your cause.
The Persuasive Storyteller
To get and hold someone's attention in an information-saturated age, you have to be able to tell compelling stories, stories that persuade, motivate, sell or sizzle. Stories that can change the world. Dr. Nick Morgan leads audiences in an interactive session that will have them finding their own stories, increasing their persuasiveness, and learning how to close the sale.
Secrets of Body Language and the Unconscious Mind
Every communication is two conversations, the content and the body language. Most people spend a lot of time and effort thinking about what they're going to say, but very little on how they're going to say it. And yet recent brain research shows that most of us make decisions based on unconscious, emotional reactions to other people's body language. In this interactive talk, Dr. Nick Morgan reveals to audiences what body language can and cannot tell us about how our minds work and how our lives are really lived.
Authenticity and Charisma
Politicians never seem to get it, and companies keep making the same mistake over and over again - they stonewall, dissemble, and lie to us until they're forced to retract a statement or a story that the 24-hour news cycle has rendered dead on arrival. In this presentation, Dr. Nick Morgan shows why people crave authentic, charismatic communications, and how both individuals and companies can achieve that kind of clarity in their everyday communications.
In the many iterations of my professional life, I've been in dozens of training sessions on leadership, communications, meeting management, etc. Some were well done, and many were excruciating. This session today was among the very best I've attended.
