The Most Powerful Phrase in Selling, Communication and Influence THE NEURO SIDE OF INFLUENCE AND LEADERSHIP

    • Business

We all do it. Scrolling Instagram, listening to a news program, hearing a sales pitch, picking out a podcast to listen to. We’re asking ourselves one thing.
“It’s a basic human question, it’s not designed to be arrogant or anything. But we want to know, what does any of this stuff mean to ME?”
When you hear someone answer this question, their message feels complete. Without it, anyone is just a talking head. René breaks down the science behind this powerful phrase and the concept of the “tie down” that it leads to so naturally. Until you’ve tied down your message, you haven’t provided value. Whether you’re a sales exec, CEO, coach, pastor or just a parent hoping to get your teen to hear something once in a while, this episode is for you!
