A fact says that four out of five people readily admit that something in their life requires a change, but they just as readily admit that they aren’t doing anything about it. An individual can play an instrumental role if he can ignite the spark of urgency of change among people. Use a sequence of simple probes that gently move the conversation closer to the real problem. An influencer’s goal is to guide people to see the potential impact of indecision.

6. Work on initiating change

Aren’t we all aware of a famous saying which goes as,

“You only have one chance to make a first impression”.

When it comes to initiating change, that one chance usually boils down to about 45- 50 seconds. This makes your opener particularly important. To build an intense impact it is essential to open the conversation on a profound note. The worst opener could be “I need to talk with you.” (Think about how those six words make you feel. Not great, right?) The best openers include softer words and phrases, such as ask you, listen to you, or need your help. Also Read: https://www.dalecarnegie.com/en/resources/ebooks
