Lectures and seminars Ethical Influencing: How to Persuade People Without Manipulation

14-01-2021 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm Add to iCal
Online Zoom

Textbooks about persuasion and influence always focus on techniques that are objectively manipulative, where people attempt to persuade you to do something while concealing this goal. Most commercial and political persuasion is equally manipulative, which is neither ethical nor even effective in the long term. But is there an alternative? In this talk Andrew Hennigan argues that there actually is a radically different approach that starts from a decision to use only “white hat” techniques.

Target Group

PhD students, Postdocs and Researchers, but others at KI are welcome too.
