Knowledge and Skills

With the help of the realistic simulations and characters in CHOCOLATE, you can succeed in effectively learning persuasion. The gamified training elements simulate a targeted, didactic learning process in the simulations. This enables you and your employees to practice, as participants, the most important skills.


Persuasiveness is the ability or characteristic to convince others of oneself and/or something else. The aim is to inspire people with goals and powerful ideas. Thus, natural energy and motivation can be released. Purely factual arguments typically only have a limited effect. Rather, experience shows that it is necessary to convince people of an idea, project, or product.


In addition to the positive factors, which need to be trained and continuously cultivated, an attentive and conscious approach to weakening factors helps. Often, without intention, one’s own powers of persuasion are reduced. It is important to send clear messages to your peers, customers, and team members in order to be better understood and to be able to present goals more clearly. To fill the audience with enthusiasm, authentic action is required. This means that body language and verbal communication must produce a clear picture. It is important to learn the principles and key factors of persuasion.
