Here are some of the everyday scenarios in which the ability to persuade and argue convincingly is beyond compare:
You desperately need a raise to ensure your salary keeps pace with the ever-expanding cost of living. At a meeting with your boss, you are able to use your persuasive powers to demonstrate your value to the organisation, resulting in a healthy pay rise that was above your expectations.
Your car has crapped out and you need a new set of wheels. At the local car dealer you find a model that suits your tastes and needs, but it’s out of your budget (and the stubborn dealer claims he is “unable to move” on the price). You bust out some persuasive rapport, and you’re able to negotiate a deal that allows you to buy that car without breaking the bank.
You’re having relationship worries - and every time you try to bring this up with your partner an argument ensue. Through persuasive reasoning you are able to make them see your side of the story, and begin a more open and honest dialogue that results in better communication and happiness.
You want to do some real-life Jedi mind tricks - convince people that your droids aren't the ones they are looking for (okay ... that's a lame joke, but you get my point!)
As you can see, the ability to persuade and convince others to either a) do what you want them to do, or b) agree with your position/point of view, opens up a whole new avenue of possibilities in your life.
Since I’ve learned how to persuade and convince in conversations (something which I used to be absolutely rubbish at) I have managed to grow many aspects of my life - from my career through to relationships - in leaps and bounds.
Just think about all the face-to-face interactions you have on a daily basis, and how much more you could extract from them if you had a better ability to persuade.
But what is the best way to learn how to persuade someone?
Why Conversational Hypnosis Is The Best Form Of Persuasion
In my opinion (and experience) the best form of persuasion comes through the use of a strategy/system known as “conversational hypnosis” - also known as “covert hypnosis” (according to this Wikipedia article)
Conversational/covert hypnosis forms part of the school of Neuro-Linguistic Programming - NLP for short. This field of study and practice focuses on developing and rewiring the way you communicate and use your brain, in order to deliver desired results. One of the most basic premises of NLP is that you need to visualise goals, and adopt appropriate behavioural patterns in order to see success.
Conversational hypnosis is all about rewiring your methods of communication in order to unlock the ability to persuade people, and get them to do what you want them to do.
Igor Ledochowski’s Power of Conversational Hypnosis
So how did I learn conversational hypnosis? I used the same system that thousands of others having been using for many years now; it’s called The Power of Conversational Hypnosis by Igor Ledochowski.
This famous digital training course (it’s not a printed book and audio CD set - instead you download everything you need online) is based on Igor Ledochowski’s interpretation of earlier methods and strategies that were laid out by a guy called Milton H. Erickson - read his Wikipedia entry here.
Igor Ledochowski is a successful hypnotist and master persuader himself, having released the best selling (of all time) audio course on conversational hypnosis back in 2002. He then took his knowledge and teachings from that course, and combined it with what Milton H. Erickson was teaching, and created The Power of Conversational Hypnosis.
This comprehensive course has since gone on to be a top selling digital information product, and has thousands of customers/community members. I have been a member of Igor’s community for a couple of years now, and thought that I would share my opinion of his product with the world.

What I Like
It’s now the right stage in this review of Igor Ledochowski’s product to cover the things I love about it, and the things I dislike. This is important so that you get as balanced a view as possible about the guide.
Here’s a list of the things I really like about The Power of Conversational Hypnosis:
The method you will learn actually works. If you put time and effort into learning the persuasion/covert hypnosis techniques and strategies in the guide, then you will see some amazing results permeate through all areas of your life. However, I need to stress to you right now that getting a “good” result from The Power of Conversational Hypnosis depends wholly on how much dedication you are willing to give the programme … if you just read a few pages of the eBook and listen to a few audios, and then fail to put anything you have learned into practice, then you will never see good results. However, if you actually take the time and give some honest effort to applying what you learn, then you will soon master conversational hypnosis and persuasion.
The product itself is very high quality. From the audio lessons to accompanying eBooks, everything oozes quality and researched polish. Considering the appalling quality of many digital information products (not just in the self-help/NLP realm - but in all markets and niches) The Power of Conversational Hypnosis makes for a very refreshing change. Perhaps the only self-help/personal development products I have seen that are of a higher quality are those published by the Mind Valley company.
You get a no-questions-asked 60 day money-back guarantee. Although I don’t think you will need to call on it (provided you take my advice and work hard to apply the lessons you learn during the course) it is reassuring to know that if you really don’t think the Power of Conversational hypnosis is right for you, then you can get your money back easily.
Purchasing is safe and secure. Call me paranoid, but I’m always a bit cautious when it comes to buying anything online. The good news is that The Power of Conversational Hypnosis is sold through the venerable Clickbank platform - which is one of the most trusted names in digital retail. This means two things; firstly, your purchase is 100% secure (meaning that whether you pay by credit card or Paypal, your personal details are totally safe and protected by top notch SSL servers) and also that you get instant access after your payment is complete.
What I Don’t Like
It’s an expensive product. At $197 USD, The Power of Conversational Hypnosis isn’t exactly cheap … especially when you consider that most of us are fairly pressed for money in the current economic climate. I would like to think that the price could be lowered considering the fact that once a digital product has been created, it doesn’t cost that much to create new copies and sell them (as compared with printing a book etc). I can certainly envisage the price being prohibitive for some people. Compared to other popular self-help products like Manifestation Miracle, it may be a hard ask for you to front up with the high ticket price of the product.
There’s information overload at times. Because there is just so much to learn, The Power of Conversational Hypnosis often throws you in a little too far towards the deep end of the pool! If you’re a quick learner, then this won’t be a problem. However, if you take a longer time to learn things, then you will really need to be judicious in terms of studying the course material in order to avoid information overload. In order to avoid information overload when learning to do conversational hypnosis, I highly suggest that you make use of the extremely handy "cheat sheets" that are included in the product package.
It overhypes conversational hypnosis (to an extent). Although I’m a big believer in the power of conversational/covert hypnosis, I also think that The Power of Conversational Hypnosis has a tendency to overhype the system/methods it teaches somewhat. The power of being able to persuade and covertly hypnotise others is certainly immense, but it is not a silver bullet for every one of life’s problems. However, with the right mindset and careful application in selected situations, you can achieve some fantastic results. Just remember that conversational hypnosis needs to work in conjunction with other NLP-based strategies, such as increasing your self-confidence.
The Power Of Conversational Hypnosis Review Conclusion
To sum-up, I’m confident that Igor Ledochowski’s The Power of Conversational Hypnosis is one of the best and most well-rounded guides to conversational hypnosis (aka verbal persuasion) that you could ever hope to find. If you're serious about learning this exciting, lifelong, and very powerful skill, then you can't go too far wrong with this course.
Disclaimer: It’s not perfect by any stretch of the imagination (but then again, nothing ever is). The downsides of the program that do exist are pretty much negated in my opinion by the positive elements; that is to say that because The Power of Conversational Hypnosis teaches what it claims to teach so well, I think you should be willing to look over its small foibles.
However, if the price is too prohibitive then you may want to check out alternative products that cost less - the last thing I want you to do is go out and buy something you cannot afford. My free email course will also help you learn the basics of conversational hypnosis anyway.
If you want to unlock the amazing power that effective persuasion can bring to your life, then you really need to consider taking the plunge and becoming a member of The Power of Conversational Hypnosis community.
I know that it’s a damn pricey product - especially in the current economic climate - but I also truly believe that when you start to experience the amazing power that being able to persuade, convince, and conversationally hypnotise will bring to your life, the cost of doing so will be worth it.
