I’ve titled this week’s Tuesday Reading “Real Influence” from the title of Mark Goulston and John Ullmen’s book “Real Influence:  Persuade Without Pushing and Gain Without Giving In.”  Goulston is a business psychiatrist, executive coach and cofounder of Heartfelt Leadership.  Ullmen oversees the website MotivationRules.com and teaches at the UCLA Anderson School of Management.  This reading is drawn from four HBR blog posts from the two authors.

"Anything I've done that was ultimately worthwhile initially scared me to death."

                                                                   Betty Bender

  • Do you avoid situations that you perceive as conflict?
  • Do you avoid doing things that are anxiety provoking?
  • Do you perceive that you "can't" do those things or are you unwilling to try?
  • How will you learn, grow and move past them?   
  • Make a plan.  It's very rewarding.

A tired and stressed out brain hates change.  Change means learning, something new, creating new connections that lead to a new neural network.  And, this doesn’t go well if the brain isn’t ready.  Too often our work lives make it hard for our brain to learn – demands of our jobs and our unhealthy sleeping and eating habits.

"Your life doesn’t get better by chance. It gets better by choice."

  • Do you hold resentments from your past?
  • Do you tend to blame others for positions that you find yourself in?
  • How did you respond to those events?  What choices did you make?
  • Try the mantra "If it is to be it is up to me" and choose your present and future!
