To cause (someone) to agree to do something:

Synonyms

 Persuade, induce, encourage.

Persuade, induce imply influencing someone’s thoughts or actions. They are used today mainly in the sense of winning over a person to a certain course of action: It was I who persuaded him to take a new job. They differ in that persuade suggests appealing more to the reason and understanding.Induce emphasizes only the idea of successful influence, whether achieved by argument or by promise of reward: The manager induced him to stay at his job? Owing to this idea of compensation, induce may be used in reference to the influence of factors as well as of persons: The prospect of an early promotion was what induced him to stay.

 She was not convinced by his excuse for coming late.

 We convinced him to come with us to the movie.
