Make Use Of "Yes-Tags"

A good communicator gets others to say yes, through the creative use of language. One such example is the "yes-tag", a suffix asking a rhetorical question easily answered by a "yes". For example, "I think this is important to you, isn't it?" or other short and sweet expressions like; wouldn't you, could you..., etc. They can be used anywhere in a sentence, really, in the end, in the middle or in the beginning;"Would you mind staying late and finish that rapport?" "Don't you think it is awfully cold in here?" Try yes-tagging yourself, wouldn't that be a great idea?
