Introducing Syntrio’s

Persuasive Speaking Series

Persuasive Speaking

This training explores important elements to engage, persuade, or motivate an audience. Speaking persuasively is easier and more effective if you understand the purpose of your presentation, the goals you are trying to reach through it, as well as the goals of the audience. In this course, you will learn how to craft a talk that communicates your message by coupling your words with gestures, inflection, and visuals to make them more effective.

Preparing for Persuasive Speaking 

This training describes how to prepare for persuasive speaking by determining your talk’s scope, purpose, and format. You must also understand your audience’s demographics, goals, and motivations to tailor your presentation. You must pinpoint your message and its supporting arguments, then deliver it authentically to demonstrate your expertise and credibility and build rapport with the listeners.

Writing a Persuasive Presentation

This training explains how to apply order and structure to a persuasive talk using tried-and-true models, including Monroe’s Motivated Sequence. A strong opening, arguments supported by data, relevant anecdotes, and personal stories, a call to action, and a closing must be balanced with brevity. This training details how to increase engagement and buy-in from your audience through techniques supported by research and proven results.

Delivering a Persuasive Message

This training provides guidance for delivering your message with an engaging voice and gestures while maintaining good eye contact and convincing body language. It explains how to address performance anxiety and use presentation aids effectively. PowerPoint and other audio/video enhancements can amplify and clarify your message, but if poorly designed, they could confuse and distract your audience and detract from your message. You must adapt your body language and any audio/video support to your venue, so it’s important to confirm and research it early in your preparations.

The Challenges of Leadership 

People seeking to excel at their jobs develop competencies, attitudes, and behaviors that make them high performers. However, these aren’t always conducive to effective leadership. This module explains that leaders need to share effort and credit for accomplishments, promote career advancement, and develop a clear understanding of why what they do matters. Inspiring colleagues to work toward the common good – including their own – is a key to effective leadership.

Leadership Values in Action      

This module explores the importance of leadership integrity. Studies show that employees admire and are loyal to leaders who behave with integrity.
