You Can Become More Persuasive

An Practical Study and Free Video Curriculum

From the classroom to the courtroom to the boardroom to your kid’s room, each of us can be more persuasive. Whether we’re coaching on the ball field or witnessing on the mission field, the principles are essentially the same.

But few of us have been taught the art and science of persuasion. How do we get someone to say yes who may be inclined to say no?

Drawing from the timeless lessons of the world’s greatest influencer, Jesus Christ, here are fifteen ways to open people’s eyes and change their minds, even when they’re highly-resistant to change.

You can do more than make a argument. You can make a difference. Learn how through this study.
