"Nothing that I learned at Harvard Law School, nor that I have learned in my career of almost four decades of practicing law and mediating cases, equals the power of knowledge and information about human behavior unleashed by Dr. Robert Cialdini in his book, "Influence: Science and Practice." The results of Cialdini's research is brought to life in his unique interactive workshops where scientific theory is translated into real world applications. Dr. Cialdini unpacks the energy and power lying within the six universal principles to prove how you can motivate people to comply with your legitimate requests and suggestions. You do not needto use force, threats or compulsion to get voluntary compliance when the request ethically incorporates one or more of Cialdini's Six Principles of Persuasion."
