Welcome

Effective influence is a key to success at work and happiness at home. Everyday, throughout the day, when we're influencing and being influenced for better or worse. Thanks to a tremendous amount of social science research from around the world in recent decades, we know a lot about what works and what doesn't when it comes to influencing others in work and life. This course is about how to make it work. Even when it's challenging. Especially when it's challenging. I love this topic because it matters so much.

And, I've seen it quickly make dramatic differences for people I work with. Who do you most want to influence? Someone at work? Your boss? Your team? Or at home, family members, friends? Or, issues in everyday life like dealing with customer service tech support and so forth. That's what I want to share with you in this course, a full range of steps and methods proven to help you be more successful influencing others and getting better outcomes.
