Influencer: The Power to Change Anything | [Kerry Patterson, Joseph Grenny, David Maxfield]

Influencer: The Power to Change Anything

Everyone wants to be an influencer. We all want to learn how to help ourselves and others change behavior. And yet, in spite of the fact that we routinely attempt to do everything from lose weight to improve quality at work, few of us have more than one or two ideas about how to exert influence. For the first time, Influencer brings together the breakthrough strategies of contemporary influence masters.

From the New York Times best-selling authors of Crucial Conversations.... Whether your goal is to change minds, change markets, or change the world - anything is possible for an influencer.

Everyone wants to be an influencer. We all want to learn how to help ourselves and others change behavior. And yet, in spite of the fact that we routinely attempt to do everything from lose weight to improve quality at work, few of us have more than one or two ideas about how to exert influence. For the first time, Influencer brings together the breakthrough strategies of contemporary influence masters. By drawing from the skills of hundreds of successful influencers and combining them with five decades of the best social-science research, Influencer shares eight powerful principles for changing behaviors - principles almost anyone can apply to change almost anything.

    "Clear guidelines to achieve inspiring goals"

    This book is surpriisingly good. I like these kind of books but sometimes they turn out to be more form than substance. Not so for this book: very clear structure, reliable science-based approach and exciting, inspiring examples (although some were already known to me). I finished the book last week and already I find that it is helping me to structure my thoughts and get a clearer picture in my mind of how to achieve my goals , personal as well as professional.

    "Good but bounces around"

    I liked the concept and thought that influence is a powerful tool. However the book bounces around during the chapters. It could have been compiled a bit better to make it a better read/ listen. Overall it is still a good listen if you have time and nothing better to do. You can learn from it!

    "The Influencer book is a must read"

    This book has content that is unlike anything I have ever read! It will change the way you approach everything in your life where you want a solid result. Just buy it and listen/ read it. I haven't finished it yet, or this write up would be stronger, and more convincing!

    "Practical ways to influence, a must read"

    Having read 100s of business and self training books, this one is the most useful book I have come across, allowing you to implement all the good ideas from other books. A must read.

    "Waste of time"

    Hours and hours of repetitive obvious conclusions. Belongs in the self help category instead of science and technology.

    "Practical and helpful information"

    Should be required reading in every high school in America. This is good stuff. It is practical and easy to understand. The authors provide example after example about why something works and how to do it. This is an easy and quick read. I highly recommend it.

    "Uninspiring"

    The author takes much too long to get to the point. The ideas and examples for influence have little to do with everyday people or everyday life.

    "not worth my time"
