Persuasion is all about changing people’s mind. If the mind isn’t changed, the person hasn’t been persuaded. It’s as simple as that. So a leader who wants to succeed has to learn how to change minds, to push followers to take appropriate steps and make new decisions.
Becoming a much better leader means growing your expertise in whatever sector or market you’re in; being willing and able to talk about your insights with those around you; being great at not only sharing your expertise and insights, but also at teaching others the best way to use them so they don’t make exactly the same errors; and being someone who your followers can trust and see as an authority figure.
