Register today for the free webinar, “The Art and Science of Persuasion,” 2 p.m. EDT March 12.

Industrial and Systems Engineers, in some respects, are often agents of change. Persuading others, individuals and teams of people is a requisite skill for successful change agents, hence ISE’s. There is a science to “persuasion” and also an art component as with most sciences.

Provided by the #IISE Columbus Chapter, this webinar will focus on sharing principles and tips for developing your ability to ‘sell’ your innovations and ideas.
