Influence PEOPLE

Powerful Everyday Opportunities to Persuade that are Lasting and Ethical


Influence PEOPLE: Powerful Everyday Opportunities to Persuade that are Lasting and Ethical was written with you in mind. If you’re like most people I speak with then you don’t want to wade through highly technical or academic books to learn. You want to know what to do in order to enjoy more success at the office and happiness at home. Influence PEOPLE is designed to give you practical ideas you can apply immediately in order to be more effective when it comes to influencing people. When you learn what the research says about influence, then ethically apply that knowledge, more people will say yes to you more often.

Would understanding how people typically think and behave before you engage in a difficult conversation, tough negotiation, or make a simple request be helpful? Of course! Influence PEOPLE explores the science behind the influence process—what drives people to take the actions you want them to take, without manipulation or trickery.

Throughout the book you’ll learn how to influence people in the workplace, at home, and during social interactions. This book isn’t about changing people’s minds or simply convincing someone what you want them to do is right. It’s much more than that; it’s about changing people’s behavior. Positive thoughts, and even agreement from others, only go so far—and seldom lead to a change in behavior. This book will help you bridge the gap between good intentions and actions. Order your copy here.
