TEDx Talk … Please Read … then Watch

In May I let you know my TEDx Talk was available for viewing. Shortly after posting it to my YouTube site I was contacted by the TED organization. They asked me to remove it because the only social channel that can host TED talks is their site. Naturally, I complied but that meant most of my blog readers, friends, family, etc., did not get to view the talk.

It’s now online (again) and you can view it here.

The talk centered around pre-suasion; a psychological approach that can make it significantly more likely to positively influence people by “setting the stage.”

During the presentation you’ll learn about pre-suasion as I share three brain rules – attention, mindset, and triggers – you can tap into in order to successfully set the stage for more effective influence.

I open the talk with a story about how I asked my wife to marry me. To be honest, I had no idea what pre-suasion was way back in July 1986, but I instinctively knew I had to do something big to win her over!

I hope you’ll invest 15 minutes to watch the talk. And, make sure you watch to the very end for a special twist. 😊

I’d like to close by asking a favor. Whether or not you watched it the first time around, would you take a moment to give it a like and possibly leave a comment Thank you!!
