About this Episode

What if a hypnotist was training your local police force to be more compelling? What if criminals were turning themselves in, not because they felt remorse or feared arrest, but rather because their community police officer used certain linguistic techniques to convince them it was their only option? What if we told you this was already happening?

Our guest this week is Rintu Basu, accidental best selling author of the Persuasion Skills Black Black Book: Practical NLP Language Patterns for Getting the Response that You Want.

We speak with Rintu about his time training the London police to be more persuasive. We also explore the mental framing built around policing in the US as compared to the UK, the different ways officers can utilize certain verbal persuasion skills to gain compliance from suspects, and how you can be more mindful of your own perceptions of law enforcement.
