3:15 PM “THE 3C INFLUENCING METHOD: “CONVINCE, COLLABORATE, CREATE” Whether you’re negotiating real estate deals or providing goods/services to the real estate industry, it is crucial to incorporate the “3C Influencing Method” into your everyday practice. The 3C Method enables its users to understand the ‘U Perspective’ (How individuals approach a situation and what will motivate them to act) of potential buyers or sellers, of their clients, of brokers they are negotiating with and of the individuals that influence the principals and apply that knowledge to negotiate better outcomes. Convince: Use active listening and purposeful questioning techniques to understand your audience and enhance the perceived value of what you are proposing, in light of that understanding. These techniques draw on the psychology of persuasion, rhetoric and influencing principles. Collaborate: Understand how to work together to achieve a common goal that satisfies everyone¹s interests through problem solving and win/ win negotiating principles; Create: The session concludes with a fresh look at how to structure interactions with others to create new, more effective ways to achieve your objectives.
