004. Ditch the Pitch: Influence through Improvisation

Instructor: Steve Yastrow

Level of Complexity: Foundational
8:30 AM - 11:45 AM


Influence and persuasion are critical to business success, but they aren’t easy! Not only is it difficult to get the attention of the people we seek to influence, it is challenging to change their minds. Typical persuasion is about delivering information and presenting explanations; Steve Yastrow flips that idea around by teaching us how to Ditch the Pitch: Turn every presentation into a conversation that maters to the other person. Steve will teach us how to tear up our scripts and create the right persuasive conversation for the person we are speaking with. It’s all about influence through improvisation.

Harness the Power of Gratitude One of the downsides of life is that we rarely have to deal with an overabundance of gratitude. Most of us tend to focus on the negative. We don't receive nearly as much acknowledgment as we would like, and we don't give as much recognition as others deserve. Now for the upside! When we learn to harness the power of gratefulness, we can make a major positive difference in so many areas of our lives, as well as the lives of those around us-and The Upside of Down Times is your first step toward making that happen. "I highly recommend this book if you want to be happier, healthier and wealthier. I read this book in one sitting and began implementing some of the ideas the next day. The ideas are easy to implement but powerful in their results." -Jack Canfield, Co-creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series and The Success Principles
