Influence People

Listen to my conversation with Brian.

It was a pleasure to have Brian back on the program. A fair question comes to mind. Why a second conversation? Three reasons come to mind.

First, when we recorded the first interview, his book was complete but not yet published.

Although I prefer to ask questions from my reading of a book, I’d not yet read it, and sure didn’t want to wait to discuss influence with an expert. So, we announced Influence People, but focused our first conversation on a high-level overview of the science of influence. I believe, even those of us familiar with Cialdini benefit from this concise and clear overview. I know I did!

Secondly, a two-part interview allowed for more time to devote to concrete tips you can use, right where you are, with the people you desire to influence. Brian delivered!

“My skillset is to translate that interesting sometimes but sometimes complex science into practical actionable items.” -Brian Ahearn

I can attest to the above statement because while I was reading the book in preparation for our conversation, I adjusted an email, based on Brian’s suggestion, that increased participant engagement for a follow up web session I was conducting.

I am confident you will enjoy and benefit from my conversations with Brian Ahearn. He can help all of us more effectively mine our diamonds in collaboration. Where Diamonds Meet.
