Another confirmed workshop:
How to build rapport and influence people by Katrina Fox
What is rapport and why is it important and useful for animal activists?
Most of us have experienced the “talk to the hand” reactions of those around us when we’ve tried to engage with them on animal advocacy issues. People are more inclined to listen to your ideas if they feel a connection (rapport) with you. The higher the level of rapport, the more likely you can influence them.
In this 45-minute practical workshop, you will learn and practice techniques such as matching and mirroring, and pacing and leading, which will enable you to quickly build rapport with people, including complete strangers, to maximise opportunities for your message to be heard.
