Thaw with her gentle persuasion is more powerful than Thor with his hammer. The one melts, the other breaks into pieces.

The Art of Persuasion is indeed the need of the hour and in the segment of ‘Talking Titans’ conducted on 11th November 2020, the geckos participated in a discourse presentation on this key skill by Dr. Diksha Dhar, a literary genius par exception.

Through a logical sequence of ideas, she enumerated how the skill of persuasion empowers one to be a well-rounded personality. It stands in good stead while convincing others of your viewpoint, often leading to changing their original point of view and also resolving disputes. A skill so relevant in the personal and professional front can be acquired through a clear understanding of its purpose and Dr. Dhar’s presentation seamlessly exhibited the technical aspects it rests on. What made the discourse so well-liked and legible to the audience was its simplicity and practicability.  Examples from day to day life experiences and common adverts certainly drew easy connections. We are sure the audience must have been prompted to take the learnings of the session ahead and inclined to build on their persuasive skills of communication.
