The Persuasive Blog
This is where Persuasive Under Pressure meets the world and proves its mettle against the issues of the day. Here we establish how decision-making driven by calm + an understanding of the nature of human nature under conflict + solid persuasive skills leads to solutions that are at once unexpected and common-sensical. And highly communicable. Attractive even.
A Note On Commenting:
Thoughtful critiques, correctives and questioning are most welcome. Data are esteemed. We are dedicated to the principle that continuous improvement should be fun, even when it involves the occasional wiping of egg from face.
Ideologically based rejoinders are not likely to make it through the light veneer of our scrutiny - unless these are particularly witty. If you favor anchoring at a doctrinal harbor over giddily jettisoning ballast in the search of the best available solution, you will get seasick here. Cannon blasting from safe mooring make no impress upon ships at sea.
Vitriol is right out. Unless, of course, your comment can serve as an example of the inefficient, human-typical, emotion-mediated decision-making that Persuasive Under Pressure is designed to reveal more clearly and to strategize around more gracefully. If so, then we will pick apart your carcass with gusto. You have our thanks in advance.
