Description

Want more success? Then Keep Learning!!!

Studies have repeatedly shown that the most successful business owners are those who are constantly learning new ideas. The good news is there are lots of great business books out there - the challenge for most of us is finding the time to actually read them.

That's where Aspire's Business Book Reviews come in. This is going to be a regular event where you will be able to pick up the key ideas and themes from a great business book...and get some ideas on how to start applying those to your business right away.

And the best part? You don't even need to read the book! We'll cover the key points, have a great group discussion and get you on your way. You'll walk out with a several page summary, some new knowledge and introductions to like minded business owners and professionals who also want to learn and be successful!

It's kind of early - but we'll have coffee and breakfast for you and you'll be on your way, smarter, happier and better looking than you were before (well at least smarter and happier). We guarantee it!


This Month's Book - Instant InfluenceInstant Influence

Would it be valuable for you to be able to quickly motivate yourself or someone else to take action. Maybe you've got an employee who is great most of the time, but has some behavior that needs to change...maybe it's a family member who wants to start working out or eating better.

Behavior change is hard - especially since most of us don't know what we're doing.

That's where Instant Influence comes in. The author Michael Pantalon is a Ph.D. in psychology and a professor at Yale and he has packaged up a proven approach to unlock motivation quickly.

How to get anyone to do anything - FAST!

Despite the somewhat cheesy title, this book is based on a Motivational Interviewing technique that's been around for more than 30 years and has tons of research behind it. The idea of making it a fast and easy framework came about because the author was requested to find a way to help Emergency Room medical personnel reliably influence their patients...and they typically only have 7 minutes of time to do that.

There are all sorts of places where these ideas can apply:

  • Motivating employees to be more productive
  • Become more effective at influencing potential customers for sales
  • Coaching clients and helping them make the changes they need to make to succeed
  • Even getting your kids to do their homework


There's no silver bullets here, but there are a lot of great ideas - some of them counter-intuitive, that will change the way you look at influence and motivation.

It's a great book and well worth your time and it's even better to discuss it with other business owners...and that's what Business Book Reviews are all about!


Here are a few comments from previous Business Book Reviews:

“I thought this was extremely valuable. It was very inspirational and my head is already spinning with ideas and things I want to implement.”


“This really added a dynamic to the way I would have been able to think about and comprehend the material on my own.”


You'll get a lot out of reading Instant Influence, it's a great book... but you'll get even more by joining into the Business Book Review discussion! Guaranteed!


Who Should Attend?

Business leaders and professionals who have a need to keep learning, but don't have the time nor the inclination to read...or just realize they will get even more out of the discussion of the material than just reading it (i.e. a lot of smart people we know)!


How does it work?

We'll keep it simple - come in at 8:00, Aspire will provide breakfast (something tasty - bagel, pastry, kolache...) and some coffee and we'll get rolling. You'll have a few minutes to meet the other attendees and then we'll dive into the review and discussion of the book. About 1/2 the time will be spent covering the key ideas and the other 1/2 will be more of a group discussion.

We're limiting the group size to 30, small enough so everyone can participate, but large enough to have a lively exchange with lots of different viewpoints and ideas.

We'll close on time and get you on with your day, secure in the knowledge that you know now more...and will be more successful.


Complete Guarantee

If for any reason you don't feel like you learned at least a couple of useful new ideas, then you will get a complete and cheerful refund...and get to keep your summary!
