Personal The Difference Between Influence and Manipulation

By Derek Neighbors, Published on November 19, 2013

I was listening to an episode of Partnerships & Possibilities a while back and got to thinking about influence and manipulation. Here are some of my thoughts.

The difference between influence, positive persuasion and manipulation.

Manipulation is me trying to get what I need.

Positive Persuasion is trying to help you get what you need while still trying to get what I need.

Influence is me helping you get what you need.

How would you define the differences?
