Plan to repeat, repeat, repeat...that's one key to teaching, inspiring, & influencing people.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn."

Benjamin Franklin

When we observe repetition, we learn.

When we repeat, others have the opportunity to learn.

If you want to influence others, communicate your interests before making requests.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

When we exhibit self-control we build our own confidence and this can be contagious, with confidence spreading from one person to the next.

When we exhibit lack of self-control our confidence shrinks..and this too tends to be contagious.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Most people take at least some pride in their work...so they tell others about what they do when they are at work. 

Few people have the interest or take to time to truly listen to others, so they never really hear let alone remember what others tell them.

You can listen. You can remember. You can let others know you care about what they do at work.

You can inspire people!

 

 

Talk so people listen...listen so people talk.

How To Listen So People Talk...well, that's in the territory of the art of asking good questions

Habits come in two flavours: green for Good and red for Bad. When you Influence others, don't make them see red.
