Publisher's Summary

What could be better than getting anyone to do anything in seven minutes…or less? Finally, a revolutionary new approach, scientifically proven to create instant, effective, and lasting change in anyone—coworkers, friends, family, strangers, even yourself. Use Instant Influence to:

  • Motivate your employees to become more productive
  • Encourage your clients to use more of your products and services
  • Even get your kids to do their homework—without being nagged

With six simple questions, motivational specialist Dr. Michael V. Pantalon teaches you how to plant the seeds for change, help others discover their own powerful reasons for change, identify effective “change talk”, make an action plan, and create successful outcomes, even with people who are resistant to change.

Based on the only motivational approach scientifically proven to succeed in more than 100 clinical trials, Instant Influence is used nationwide in corporations, hospitals, court systems, universities, therapists’ offices, and elsewhere. From coping with a recalcitrant employee to resolving a long-standing problem with your spouse, Instant Influence can help you create the lasting results you want while improving the relationships you have.

    "Disappointing"

    The format of the audiobook is very hard to follow and the narrator's voice has almost put me to sleep while commuting several times. The content is very basic psychology, if you took a psych class in college then most of the information will be familiar. To me most of the suggestions were obvious, perhaps someone else may find the information more helpful. I would pass and read the reviews on the print version as well.

    "Extremely useful in a day-to-day vasos."

    A simple method to make people think about their motives to go ahead.
    For those whose objective is to get things done is a mandatory reading.

    Any additional comments?
