Publisher's Summary

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.

From the best-selling authors who taught the world how to have Crucial Conversations comes the new edition of Influencer, 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. You'll be taught each and every step of the influence process - including robust strategies for making change inevitable in your personal life, your business, and your world.

This book is perfect for those in organizational and entrepreneurial roles. This book presents proven methods to help pinpoint and solve issues, big and small. This book also touches multiple industries including but not limited to healthcare, law enforcement, fitness, and humanitarian efforts. I loved listening to this every morning on my way to work. I will be listening again soon.

Great content

The six sources of influence described is well thought out. The proven examples helped me visualize the sources in use. Will be putting this in practice for my future change endeavors.

Best of Business Improvement Genre

New ideas - something rarely found in this genre - and clever illustrations (stories, examples) really made this a great listen. I rethought several challenges I was facing because I saw options I would not have previously considered. Kudos to the authors.

Good information

What did you love best about Influencer?

Made some good points to think about in influencing others and situations. The book went into a variety of different situations which was good to have different ideas regarding work, business and personal life.<br/>This book reminded me also of Outliers and Tipping point, how a few small things will change the situation. I was hoping for more specifics on how to put in place influencing or practical steps. I did learn a lot from the examples and stories and I think that was the intention.<br/>The narrator is easy to listen to, just as if he is talking to you from across the table.

this is a concentration of knowledge and wisdom.

I loved almost all of it. It is a real science about change. it mostly uses methods for willful adherence to the right behaviors that lead to change. I believe adding negative reinforcement will give more strength to change efforts although this book tends to exclude it. My next assignment is to bow apply, so that I move from knowledge to skills. Overall this is one of my best reads.
