Episode 88 – Mark Rodgers – Persuasion

Mark Rodgers (@Mark_Speaks on Twitter) checks in with host Craig Price to talk about persuasion. Persuasion can be a mysterious thing, some people come by it naturally, others work hard at it yet never gain influence over anything. But like any skill, it can be learned, honed and maximized effectively…if you put in the time. Mark show Craig how credibility, language and process can combine to become persuasion. And all in an ethically oriented manner. (It’s true!!) 
Mark and Craig will be presenting at the PMI Madison Professional Development Day on May 16th, 2013. Craig will be giving a 2 hour interactive session on negativity, Mark will be presenting the lunch keynote “Persuasion Matters” as well as an additional session in the afternoon. Past guests Michael Redmond and Gina Abudi will be presenting as well. It’s a content packed day awaiting Madisonites (or are they Madisonians?) project managers!
