In the world of communication, persuasion is the ability to influence others to accept your point of view. A communicator

who is persuading an audience will try to convince them to change their attitudes, beliefs, values or judgements.

(Business Communication for Success, 2012)  Being persuasive involve verbal and nonverbal communication, such as

body language, to convince your audience to agree with your position.  Charismatic communicators have exceptional

communication skills which motivates and empowers an audience. A communicator who possess charisma is a

compassionate visionary who leads an audience to a sense of togetherness or unity.  Both persuasive and charismatic

communicators are driven by their beliefs.  These communicators expect a call to action and want to see a change in their

audience. 

 

Mother Teresa, who was a great humanitarian started working for the poor in the 1950's. She was dedicated to helping

those less fortunate had a vision of empowering poor people worldwide.  Because of her passion and dedication, Mother

Teresa inspired others to follow her just as a charismatic leader or communicator does. Steve Jobs was a master at

persuading consumers to fall in love and purchase Apple products.  He understood his audience and had a way with words

that were effective in convincing people to invest in his products.

Personality is a huge part of business communication. It is important to be persuasive and charismatic to draw others into ideas and directions. Persuasion is an act or process of presenting arguments to move, motivate, or change your audience (Business Communication for Success, 2012). In business communication, it is important to effectively use persuasion to present a business plan or the next big idea to a panel of decision makers. Providing valid key points and presenting the information in a way that is concise and easy to understand. Charisma can inspire devotion and motivation in others. There are similarities between persuasion and charisma, because they both can move people.

 

Barak Obama is a charismatic leader. His speeches drew a nation into his belief of change. In the deliverance of his speeches he made some people believe in themselves a little bit more. He helped a nation to believe that anything was possible. TD Jakes is charismatic and persuasive. He is motivational and encouraging through his messages. His delivery is thought provoking and emotional. He is persuasive, because the message is to lead people closer to God. He uses circumstances of past, present, and future to make a connection with his audience.

Persuasive and charismatic communicatiors are driven by a belief system. This system can be negative or positive. Religious leaders and business leader have the ability to use their voices for good or bad. In business many communicators use persuasion to motivate a sales team or charisma to motivate employees lto work a little harder. Mother Teresa was a profound inspirational leader. She was gentle and charismatic. Steve Jobs was a master of persuation. Je believed in his product more than anyone else. This made it easy fo him to find passion to persuade buyers and other businesses.

Shanna, you have done a great job explaining the art of persuasion and charisma.  I was very surprised at your example of Mother Theresa. I have taught this class several times, and I must say this is the first time anyone has used Mother Theresa as a great speaker. I love the fact that you did not use the typical speakers. I do have one question for you. Do you think the skill of persuasion is a learned behavior or does it come naturally?

Great post!
