Hold anyone accountable. Master performance discussions. Get results. Broken promises, missed deadlines, poor behavior--they don't just make others' lives miserable; they can sap up to 50 percent of organizational performance and account for the vast majority of divorces. Crucial Accountability offers the tools for improving relationships in the workplace and in life and for resolving all these problems--permanently.
"Very helpful for work and life"
Whether you're a CEO, a parent, or merely a person who wants to make a difference, you probably wish you had more influence with the people in your life. But most of us stop trying to make change happen because we believe it is too difficult, if not impossible. We learn to cope rather than learning to influence. Influencer is a thought-provoking audiobook that combines the remarkable insights of behavioral scientists and business leaders with the astonishing stories of high-powered influencers from all walks of life.
"Great book! Very informative! Loved the research!"
A stunning new approach to how individuals can not only change their lives for the better in the workplace, but also their lives away from the office, including (but not limited to) finding ways to improve one's working relationship with others, one's overall health, outlook on life, and so on. For example, why is it that 95% of all diet attempts fail? Why do New Year's Resolutions last no more than a few days? Why can't people with good intentions seem to make consistent and positive strides in the way they want to improve their careers, financial fitness, physical fitness, and so on?
"You can do this"
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.
"Not the book for everyone"
So often we want to make big changes in our lives, but lack the resolve to see them through. It seems we just can't summon the necessary willpower to take on these huge challenges - saving money, quitting smoking, increasing productivity, getting a promotion or pay rise, or losing weight. But here's the secret: willpower is not the answer.
"Read this book if you want change in your life."
You accept your first job as a manager in a fast growth tech company, thinking: “How much different could this be from my former company - a financial services firm? Management is management, right?"
Lunch seems pretty tame until your boss announces, “Build a wall, and deport them all! Who is with me?” or “Only lunatics want assault weapons - we should ban them all tomorrow!” An awkward silence descends as your boss awaits your confirmation. Here’s the problem: you vehemently disagree, but you love your job and your colleagues, including your boss. You also worry that staying silent will be interpreted as agreement.
