Course Description

Mastering the Art of Persuasion: Dive Deep into Winning Arguments

In the realm of debate, persuasion, and discourse, the ability to construct a compelling argument is both an art and a science. Our groundbreaking course, "Winning Arguments," seeks to meld these two realms to cultivate a powerful skill set in you.

Two key objectives guide this course:

  1. Immerse learners in the rich tapestry of classical arguments, equipping you to craft resonant and persuasive oral or written content, be it for the boardroom, the stage, or daily life.

  2. Sharpen essential cognitive tools: critical thinking, synthesis, articulate writing, keen evaluation, and introspective reflection.

The art of argumentation has its roots in the historic streets of Athens, where pioneering minds like Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle laid the bedrock for modern rhetoric. Harnessing the timeless techniques championed by these luminaries, our course intricately weaves historical depth with contemporary application.

Across fifteen meticulously crafted lessons, learners will journey from foundational concepts to advanced techniques. Every module is structured to introduce the topic, delve into its historical and contemporary relevance, and furnish practical strategies peppered with real-world examples.

Each lesson culminates in an interactive assessment, ensuring that the knowledge gained is both understood and applicable. Those who navigate this journey with dedication and achieve a grade of 70% or higher will be rewarded with accredited CEUs, a testament to their prowess in the art of argumentation, a credential to augment their professional journey.

Embark on this journey and master the age-old art of winning arguments, blending the wisdom of the ancients with modern techniques for unparalleled persuasive prowess.
