Conversational hypnosis is a program of powerful techniques used to persuade and control those around you. Not only is conversational hypnosis used so that you have influence over others, but it is also used so that other people do not take advantage of you. Conversational hypnosis allows you to establish rapport with other individuals and that leads to you getting what you want.
The most important aspect of conversational hypnosis is learning how to develop rapport with other people. Rapport is the ability to be “in tune” with someone subconsciously. Rapport will enable others to have trust in you. Rapport will allow you to gain their trust so that you can get what you want.
In past articles I have talked about establishing rapport through pacing and mirroring techniques. In this article I am going to talk about the technique of leading. Leading is a technique to use after you have been pacing someone for about 5-10 minutes. However, I highly suggest practicing leading for a week on friends or strangers before trying it out to get what you want.
Leading is where you make someone do what you want them to do. For example, if you have been pacing and mirroring someone for a little while, it is time to test to see if they have developed rapport with you. If you have established rapport correctly, you can take the lead by doing something and they will follow.
It is important to make sure you have mastered mirroring and pacing before you move on to leading. Be sure to practice all three techniques before being put in a serious position where you intend to lead someone. These techniques take a little bit of practice to master and before long you will be a master of conversational hypnosis.
While practicing on friends or strangers, I suggest keeping the leading simple. For example, after you have mirrored and paced someone for 5-10 minutes, you can lead them by scratching your head. If they scratch their head, you have accomplished your goal of leading them.
Leading is a great technique to use in a business setting because you can get them to do what you want them to do. However, it is very important to be careful in a business setting. It is possible that other business people know about conversational hypnosis. Let’s say for example that you scratch your head. If the other person waits a little while and then scratches their head, then your technique is a success. However if they scratch their head very quickly after you did, perhaps they are trying to pace you. So, be careful!
Another way you can use leading is to slow someone’s voice tempo, or to speed it up. If someone is speaking too quickly, you can start slowing down your voice and see if they follow your lead. Leading has all sorts of possibilities. I encourage you to practice this skill and soon you will be leading people to do what you want!
