How to speak persuasively: 19 useful tips

To reach the goal in order to be understood, you need to learn how to interpret your speech convincingly, simplified, to make it available to perception, for sure. Here's how learn to speak convincingly in media — 19 useful tips.

1. Say "and" instead of "but".

For example, "You did well, and if You..." instead of "Yes, this is good, but You have to..." Because "but" negates everything that was said before him.

2. Say "and" instead of "however".

For example, "I understand that You can't answer that fast, so let's..." instead of: "I understand that You can't answer right now, but it would be better..." Because "yet" tells the person that You are deeply indifferent to his wishes, expectations, doubts or questions.

3. Use the word "for" instead of the word "against."

For example, "in order that something has changed, I'll be in the sports section".instead of "What would I have to come up against boredom?"

4. Avoid rough "no" because "no" uttered with appropriate intonation, can produce a very negative impression on partner.

5. Strike out the phrase "honest" from your vocabulary, because it sounds like honesty for You is an exception.

6. Say "not" instead of "no."

For example, "wrong" or "not now." "In this form I don't like it". "At the moment I have no time for this" instead of "No, I don't like it," "No, I don't have time". Because "no" repels. "No" is something completed and finally resolved.

7. Change the angle of view, using the word "already" instead of the word "still".

For example, "You have already done half" instead of "You made only half?" Because the word "already" makes little to a lot.

8. Forget the words "only" and "just" or replace them with others.

For example, "This is my opinion", "this Is my idea", instead of "I'm just saying my opinion", "It's just an idea." Cross out the "just" and "only".

9. Remove the word "wrong." Better ask a clarifying question and show the person that you are also trying to solve the problem.

For example, "It was not as it should. Let's think how to correct the error or avoid it in the future" instead of "Incorrectly! It is only your fault."

10. Say "in" and "for all" instead of "somewhere" and "around". Accurately assign the date and time.

For example, "I'll call you on Friday" "I'll call You tomorrow at 11 o'clock" instead of "I'll call at the end of the week", "I'll call tomorrow around 11".

11. Ask open-ended questions. Don't settle for monosyllabic answers "Yes" or "no".

For example, "How do You like it?", "When can I call You back?", instead of "do You like it?", "Will call You back". Because the questions with "How", "What" or "Who"... produce valuable information.

12. Use the expression "From this moment I..." instead of "If I...".

For example, "From this moment I will carefully listen to the advice" instead of "If I took that advice. Then this would have happened." Because "If I..." regrets that passed, and rarely helps to move on. It is better to see in the future. The phrase "From now on, I..." — a good basis for such a position.

13. Stop trying to wriggle out using the "ought" and "ought". Better: "it is Important to do this job in the first place", instead of "we Need to think about it", "it is Necessary to first finish this work." "Ought" and "ought" not saying anything specific. It is better to clearly name (or something) about whom or what You're talking about ("I" "you" "You" "we").

For example, "You need to get this done", "You should give priority to this work."

14. Say "I do" or "I would like" instead of "I should".

For example, "I'd like to think a little" "I will first gather the necessary information" instead of "I must first think a little" "I should collect information". "I have to" is associated with coercion, pressure or external definition. Everything You do with this setting, You do not volunteer. "I will do" or "I would like" sounds for other much more positive, more friendly and motivated.

15. Strike out the words "actually" and "actually" from your vocabulary.

Napier, "That's right", instead of "Well, it's right." "Generally" does not contain any information and is perceived as a limitation.

16. Say "I recommend You" instead of "You should".

For example, "I advise You to trust me", "I recommend You think it over," "I advise You to make a decision as soon as possible". The words "shall" and "should" You are putting the interlocutor pressure and take away his opportunity to make a decision. "I recommend You" sounds much more friendly and positive.

17. Use also alternatives to "I advise You", such as "I beg You" and "I".

For example, "I ask You to make a decision as soon as possible", "I am grateful to You, if You trust me" instead of "You have to make a decision as soon as possible", "You have to trust me." "I beg You" and "I thank You" is very easy to say, and they make a miracle.

18. Refrain from all forms of negation; it is better to speak positively.

For example, "It will be okay", "It's a really good idea", "It's easy for me" instead of "This is not a problem for me", "the Idea is really good", "It would be easy for me." In the negatives, You go a long way. It's too hard and can cause unpleasant associations. Speak directly and positively.

19. Avoid other typical forms with "no".

For example, "Please don't misunderstand me", "Please think about...!", "Please follow....!", instead of "Please do not misunderstand me." "Please do not forget that....!", "Let's not lose sight of that!". Such negative expression turns into a positive. Okay, say what You want. Build on the most all the attention on the desired goal.published
