Influencer: The New Science of Leading Change


Influencer Book

The truth is, we all need to be better influencers. Hardly a day passes that we don’t try to influence others to do something different. We do our best to motivate employees to demonstrate more concern for profitability. We struggle to enable our teams to complete projects on time and on budget. In summary, we continually work on ways to exert our influence, but we regularly fall short.

An Influencer motivates and enables others to change.

This acclaimed leadership book combines the skills used by hundreds of successful change agents with five decades of the best social science research. It delivers a proven model for changing entrenched behaviors across teams and organizations.

As you read this book you’ll learn how to identify a handful of high-leverage behaviors that lead to rapid and profound change, use vicarious experience to change thoughts and actions, and marshal multiple sources of influence to make change inevitable.

Influencer gives you powerful strategies to create rapid, dramatic, and permanent change in others – whether that’s your team or entire organization.
