Influence and Self Confidence

Today is Monday, so this post is on self confidence.

Self confident people tend to be influential.  Influential people tend to be self confident.  That’s why I want to tell you about a new book that will be published soon; Influencer: The Power to Change Anything.

Influencer is written by the same authors who wrote one of my favorite books, Crucial Conversations, Kerry Patterson, Joseph Grenny, David Maxfield, Ron McMillan, and Al Switzler.  They are all part of a company called Vital Smarts

Influencer is scheduled for release in book stores on October 1.  However, you can get it at a 34% discount if you order it though or Barnes and by September 30.  Here is a link for ordering by September 30

I have not yet had the opportunity to read Influencer.  However, as I’ve mentioned, Crucial Conversations is a great book.  It tells the reader how to handle himself or herself in those sticky conversations in which inevitably find ourselves in our lives and careers.

I’m writing about it here because influence and self confidence are reciprocal.  Your self confidence improves as your ability to influence others improves.  Your ability to influence others improves as your self confidence improves.

If you buy Influencer, let me know what you think.  I’m going to pick up a copy and read it.  I’ll post my thoughts here.

That’s it for today.  Thanks for reading.  Log on to my website to subscribe to my monthly ezine and for more common sense.  Check out my other blog: for common sense advice on leading people and running a small business.
