Invitational Incline

Tell me, and I will forget.
Show me, and I will remember.
Involve me, and I will understand.
– Chinese Proverb

Leading people to knowledge is not enough when you want to move them to understanding.

A great communicator helps people figure out not only what matters, but also why it matters to them. A great communicator dances up the Invitational Incline, from data to information to knowledge to understanding – and moves audiences from simple intake to internalization and even evangelization.

Thaler Pekar & Partners has synthesized models from knowledge management, education, and social media marketing to develop the Invitational Incline, and to guide you in guiding your audiences. To push yourself to invite your audiences into thorough engagement, and ultimately to evangelization on behalf of your product or cause.
