Godfather of Persuasion

Godfather of PersuasionI was watching "The Godfather" recently.

For the uninitiated, "The Godfather" is the classic oscar-winning show about the Italian Mafia (or the "Mob").

 

 

The opening scene left a very deep impression on me.

It’s the scene of Amerigo Bonasera, an owner of a funeral parlour who went to Don Corleone to ask for a favour, which was on the day of Don Corleone’s daughter wedding.

His daughter has just been raped by 2 men. But due to the failure of the justice system then, the 2 men got away scot free.

Bonasera swore revenge. But the only one who can help him deliver justice is Don Vito Corleone, the head of the Corleone mafia family in New York.

Don Corleone agreed to "settle" the 2 men.

But the scene that particularly struck me was how he made Bonasera acknowledged him as his "Godfather" and promised to return the favor if he ever needs it in future.

In Don Corleone’s words…he said to Bonasera, "Some day, and that day may never come, I will call upon you to do a service for me. But uh, until that day, accept this justice as a gift on my daughter’s wedding day."

Later in the show, Don Corleone’s eldest son, Sonny, was brutally assassinated by a rival mob.

And Bonasera returned the favor to Don Corleone by helping to patch up Sonny’s body nicely, so that his mother will not have to go through the agony of seeing Sonny’s disfigured bullet-riddled body.

Later, the movie also showed how Don Vito helped his godson, Johnny Fontane further his showbiz career.

And he too, would later repay Don Vito’s favor.

Can you see the persuasion strategy here?

Don Vito is using one of the classic "weapon of influence" which Dr Robert Cialdini (author of "Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion") termed as the "Principle of Reciprocity".

Don Vito will get people in his debt. So that if he ever needs to get something done, he will be able to easily persuade his "debtor" to reciprocate.

It’s a very powerful persuasion technique.

That’s why you hear Zig Ziglar, one of the world’s greatest salesman, saying, “You can get everything you want in life, if you help others get what they want."

When you help others, they are more inclined to hear you back.

Win-win.

It appeals to human’s nature of fairness.

And it’s a powerful weapon of influence you can use in all areas of your life, be at work or relationships.

Try it. And you will know what I mean.

To end off, let me leave you with video of the opening scene.

Enjoy the dialogue. And of course, Marlon Brando’s powerful portrayal of Don Vito Corleone.

Goddamn, I love this show!

The Godfather is a great movie. In one day I’ve seen all parts, and i would re-see it anytime. In such a world respect and honor were highly praised, and it was only normal that one hand washed another.

In film making, its one of the most powerful opening scenes, the darkness then the head shot, the great soliloquy, then straight away the contrast of the American culture and values with the Sicilian old ways. The whole scene sets the tone for? the rest of the film. A lot of the Godfather is a comment on the hypocrisy of American politics.

Love the movie, and I see the parallel you’re drawing, though it seems a bit stretched. If you do for others, good things happen, agreed. But in Don Corleone’s world, he would do you a favor, but fully expect a return favor (if he ever needed it). There wasn’t much choice in the matter – you couldn’t say “no” to Don Corleone. I think the real giving we are talking about, for business and life, is to give without condition. We give without expecting anything in return. That, I think, is the best approach, and the one that will do us the most good as business owners and human beings.

@John:

I do agree with you that giving without condition is the best way forward. To add on, I am also a big believer of creating win-win situation.

When you give others value, others will naturally be inclined to give back to you. It’s in our nature. And if we do genuinely need a help from others we have helped before, then we shouldn’t be afraid to ask.

Especially so if you are in a situation where you need to negotiate.

@Saim peter

Nice observation. You see many of these mafia people going to America to chase the American dream. Only that it’s not in the way most will do it.

Love the movie too but the ides behind the principle of reciprocity is not always 100% good. We have the same thing in our culture but it leaves people indebted to other people which often becomes a vicious cycle. Relationships become stifled and the debtor usually becomes resentful or feels powerful over the debtee. It also hinders the whole “pay it forward” cycle which is better at distributing wealth IMO.

The Godfather is commonly considered to be one of the “greatest films of all time”. Even though I’ve given it a 10, I wouldn’t put that same kind of exalted emphasis on it.

At any rate, it is definitely must-see viewing–even if it’s only because it’s so highly regarded–if you’ve not experienced the film yet. I think it’s a good idea to attain cultural literacy, and films as popularly loved as The Godfather become necessary elements in achieving that literacy.

Same as the golden rule,”Do unto others what you want others to do unto you”. Nowadays,though,when you help others they would usually leave you high and dry when you are the one in need. I learned that the hard way.But if you’re like Don Carleone, people who owe you favor would not hesitate to return it the second you ask for it otherwise they’d get into deep trouble if they won’t.

Well, okay, I still think it’s one of the greatest movies ever made, but man can it be boring at times! Movies do not need action to be good, however, and this is coming from an action movie fan. I love Transformers, don’t get me wrong. But as a whole, The Godfather is still one of the best movies ever made (even if it can be a bit unexciting).

You really made some great points here. It’s definitely all about how you start the day. My morning routine consists of a lot of the things you mentioned above, the most important of which are making my bed immediately after getting out of it, eating a pretty large, nutritional breakfast, and going to the gym (at least more often than not). I once heard that the best way to start the day is to start it as if on purpose. I can’t take credit for those words of wisdom, though I think there’s definitely a lot of truth behind them.

I do agree that by doing someone a favor it makes it more likely that they will do you one in return, but if you read the book you will know that when called upon by the Don, Bonasera was more in fear of what would happen if he did not do whatever was asked of him to repay the Godfather than he was willing to help out the Don just to repay someone who had done you a good dead.

The Godfather is one of the classic movies of all times.
If you are open minded and warmhearted with an understanding for the other person’s needs, your kindness will be rewarded. ”Do unto others what you want others to do unto you”! Those how understand the power of these words will not hesitate and return the favor in a heartbeat. They do it without having the feeling of being in dept to return a favor – they do it from their heart as well.

And yes i agree with the article, we have it in us…a urge to even things out, we don’t like to be in debt to someone,and with the first chance we make it up.

thank you for the article!

That is the beauty of being generous. The receiver will realize that he/she is in depth and they will find it hard to refuse a offer. It sounds kind of tricky but I think it is fair. By the way, I love the movie and I find Don Corleone very interesting. The story on how he turned rugs into riches, how he socialized and talks to people and how gets what he wants.

Oddly enough, the Godfather is one of those ‘classic’ movies that I still haven’t gotten around to watching yet in my entire 25 years of life! Not a huge fan of mobster films, but this is mainly because of the violence factor, and compared to some of the stuff they show these days, I don’t suppose the Godfather looks too terrible!
Should just go watch it one of these days.

I think the real giving we are talking about, for business and life, is to give without condition. We give without expecting anything in return. That, I think, is the best approach, and the one that will do us the most good as business owners and human beings.

You may be right about the “debtor-” or “win-win”situation, but you always need to hold something against the person that you do the favor for on order to get it back. The least thing is to get respect paid, and in Corleone’s case it is power, dignity and fear.

The God Father preaches the “Principle of Reciprocity”and this thing is very prevalent in Filipino Culture. The locals refer to this as “Utang ng Loob” (Debt of gratitude). Sadly this practice also is abused and results in graft and corruption in my homeland.

I’m became a public speaker since the day I quitted work couple of months back. I admire people who can easily speak their minds out. When I saw the movie (my dad was watching this on his dvd), I was awed by the way Don Vito Corleone persuaded Bonasera to call him Godfather. There is nothing exceptional on how Corleone talked, the mystery is on how he delivered the message. Excellent post!

I’ve read the book 3 times and have seen the first two movies at least 20 times. Although the third installment leaves a lot to be desired, the trilogy would still be among my top desert island movies. You are right, the first scene is especially striking and sets the tone for the whole movie. I’ve also read in other places that many real mobsters have a fond appreciation for the wedding scene and think that it is an accurate portrayal of their lifestyle.

It is one of the finest movies ever made. I think it is one movie whose copy has been made in every country that has his own film industry. I watch it every time it comes on HBO my favorite dialogue is

“”So the next day, my father went to see him; only this time with Luca Brasi. An’ within an hour, he signed a release, for a certified check for $1000.
Kay: “How’d he do that?”
My father made him an offer he couldn’t refuse.
Kay: “What was that?”
Luca Brasi held a gun to his head and my father assured him that either his brains, or his signature, would be on the contract. That’s a true story. That’s my family, Kay, it’s not me.” “

First of all The Godfather is with out doubt one of the greatest films ever made.The point you make through the film is and always be a valid one.Giving and helping others will results in you receiving back from those you have given to,however giving without expectation will result in even greater reward in the longer term.

Hello,

I too am an ardent fan of The Godfather and the power that the movie exudes is something very rare in cinema.

Yes. Helping others does prove to be beneficial. But not on all occassions because a lot many people expect the best but do not have the will to return the favor.

So, it often leaves the first person feeling like he was left high and dry. It has happened many a times with me too.

I dont know if you agree. But that’s just my two cents. :)

“I’ll scratch your back, you scratch mine” is a great motto to live by. Not only for the reciprocation, which is obviously a plus, but being generous and giving is a fulfilling way to live your life.

From a business standpoint, it’s obviously also very beneficial. You never know when you might need some help from someone, and it can only help your chances if you help them out first.

The Godfather is the most interesting movie I have ever watched. Not because of the mobster background of the movie but because of the human factor of the movie. There are a lot of scenes and scripts that won’t mean anything unless you went through the whole movie.

I can’t ever forget the classic scene when Michael went to see his father in hospital and said “Just lie here, Pop. I’ll take care of you now. I’m with you now. I’m with you.” I think that is the most powerful scene in the movie history concerning father and son.

Interesting analogy. It’s like Karma – what goes around, comes around. Help somebody out and you’ll get that favor returned. Sadly it can also have a negative impact, especially in the criminal world where a favor can turn into a lifelong debt and enslavement. The Godfather I and II are two of the best films of the 1970s. Francis Ford Coppola at his finest.

Brando made Don Vito something we rarely see in movies: a tragicomic villain-hero, a vulnerable hood. The don is so close to a comic character — the movie itself is so close to comedy — that Brando’s capacity to move us in the role is doubly impressive. At the end, it is the older Godfather’s tenderness and sagacity we recall.

Great post. I love The Godfather! That first scene is absolutely brilliant and i’ll never tire of it. The whole concept of doing favors for others while keeping them in your debt works very well in business. What might seem like a big deal to the person asking for your favor, is not such a big deal for you and it’s often easy to help people out. At the same time when you need a favor back and ask the debtor to reciprocate its often difficult for you to accomplish un-aided. So it’s a win-win.

Great analogy! Love the Godfather – what a classic movie. The Principle of Reciprocity is seen in so many of the Internet Marketing techniques used. For example, the offer of free information or free software to subscribers. Or the relationship building using email marketing.

People feel obliged to return favors – that’s human nature, even in the Mafia world!

Hi

I saw this movie 2 decades ago as a TV serial on a local channel. The famous dialogue from Michael “I’ll make him an offer he can’t refuse” is fresh in my memory. I keep using this against people who irritate me. What a movie with star cast like Marlon Brando, AL Pacino(Michael, etc. An all time classic.

The Godfather may be able to make people offers they “can’t refuse,” but for the rest of us persuasion will get us much further than force. The ability to influence people without threats, bribes, or manipulation will greatly assist in your negotiations. While negotiation involves reaching an agreement on price or specific terms of a contract, persuasion involves getting people to go along with your point of view or to see it your way. Good negotiators are also good persuaders.

In film creating, its one in every of the foremost powerful gap scenes, the darkness then the top shot, the nice soliloquy, then instantaneously the distinction of the yankee culture and values with the Sicilian recent ways that. the entire scene sets the tone for? the remainder of the film. lots of the Godfather may be a treat the hypocrisy of yankee politics.

The Godfather is usually thought of to be one in all the “greatest films of all time”. even if I’ve given it a ten, I wouldn’t place that very same reasonably exalted stress thereon.

At any rate, it’s undoubtedly must-see viewing–even if it’s solely as a result of it’s therefore extremely regarded–if you’ve not full-fledged the film however. i feel it’s an honest plan to realize cultural skill, and films as popularly preferred because the Godfather become necessary components in achieving that skill.

I love the Godfather, but and your sense of Karma works out sometimes, but Don Corleone had something most people do not, he had a band of thugs and muscle who would beat the crap out of you if you refused the favor. At the risk of sounding totally lame, It was an offer he couldn’t refuse. In the world of marketing and blogging, people who are “indebted” aren’t compelled by anything to return favors except by this idea of “fairness.”

The God Father is one of the best classic movies that I’ve always watch at least once every year. It’s not only because it’s a really good movie but also because it keeps me inspired for me to create my own strong family. It doesn’t necessarily mean to be a mafia family. But just a simple family that would love to protect each other in times of need.

Man, you talk about the Godfather and poof, 500 comments later. What you said could not be more true. Be a servant leader and you will be paid back, even if indirectly, in the future. I have countless examples of how this tactic has helped further my career at a fortune 100. If you work for a large company, I also find it interesting how I’ll run into someone years later and they still “remember how I helped them”…. and then I find out they are the new guy who makes funding decisions for our group.

What you said is absolutely true. When you help other people, they will feel indebted to you. In most cases, they may try and repay back in some way or the other even if you don’t ask for a favor back. The more people you help, the better your chances of being helped and liked by others. You can become a famous leader by first being kind and helpful to lot of people.

Frank Kern is another master who has borrowed heavily from this technique and codified it into his ‘own’, with his ‘results in advance’ marketing technique.

The idea, is to move the free line and see if there is something in your offer than can help an enormous number of people while keeping the incremental cost of delivering that value quite low — so you can afford the people who never reciprocate by buying your product or service. Great strategy.

Not to discount your win-win reciprocality theory, because it’s great, but….

There is something inherently distasteful about weilding your power over someone in a time of tragedy. Something that just sits wrong with that particular example from the Godfather. Because this poor man’s daughter had been violently violated, and he wants justice. However he’s told, “you can only get justice if you barter your future for an unknown payment.” It’s just… icky.

I wanted to thank you for this great post. I must say God Father is one of the best classic movies I have ever seen in my life. The principle of reciprocity just makes sense. Doing important favors to people who you know can help you is like luring your debtors with favors such that they feel they need to reciprocate these favors come the time you need it.

I was watching “The Godfather” recently. For the uninitiated, “The Godfather” is the classic oscar-winning show about the Italian Mafia (or the “Mob”). The opening scene left a very deep impression on me. It’s the scene of Amerigo Bonasera, an owner of a funeral parlour who went to Don Corleone to ask for a favour, which was on the day of Don Corleone’s daughter wedding.
