How often do you interact with a coworker or colleague and walk away from the conversation feeling like you made an impact? If having this power of influence sounds completely foreign to you, you may be frustrated when you can’t get others to do as you need them to, whether they’re under your management or a client.

The Push technique of influence empowers users to influence those around them using various methods of engagement. For Clarissa (and many technically-minded professionals like her), the Factual method of engagement worked best. She was able to use simple logic and facts to push others into seeing things from her point of view. She learned how to use this logic and factual information to persuade clients, her boss and even her fellow colleagues.
