You might not realize how often we rely on the ancient art of persuasion in our everyday lives. But we do it quite often, if you think about it. Some of the most obvious instances, where we do it, are in the work place. For example, we need to be persuasive when we apply for a job, when we seek a raise or a promotion. We routinely use persuasion when writing proposals, presentations, and even when writing emails to co-workers when we want to gain their cooperation, for a pet project.
