How do you sell your ideas and initiatives to key decision-makers?

It can be difficult to gain the “ear” of decision-makers—and once you have it, even harder to present your case in a way that gets you the “yes” you’re looking for AND builds your influence with the decision-maker long term. Tune in to discover:

✔️ What most people get wrong about influence-building

✔️ Myths and misconceptions about decision-makers that you MUST know to approach persuasion and negotiation effectively

✔️ Key elements that affect your ability to be heard by decision-makers

✔️ Why getting the “yes” should be your secondary goal—and what your primary goal should be

✔️ Why small talk is not the best opening for selling your ideas

✔️ Phil’s favorite success story from the Earning the Right to Be Heard Process
