The gift of influence : creating life-changing and lasting impact in your everyday interactions / Tommy Spaulding.

Spaulding, Tommy, (author.).


"An empowering manifesto on how to use influence to make a lasting impact on everyone we meet, from chance encounters to work colleagues to our closest relationships-by the New York Times bestselling author of The Heart-Led Leader. Researchers believe that the average person will influence up to 80,000 people-2.8 people daily-over the course of their lifetime. That's a stadium full of people whom each of us affect positively or negatively, sometimes without us knowing. What if we paid attention to this fact? Would we live differently? Would we lead differently? Would we take more time to put down our phones and instead focus on the person in front of us? Tommy Spaulding believes the answer is yes. In this compelling and deeply personal book, Spaulding explores how we can be more mindful and effective in wielding the influence each of us has over others-in our careers, in our everyday interactions, and in the relationships we cultivate over a lifetime. The Gift of Influence is a manifesto on the everyday actions we can take to make a positive impact on the people we love and lead. Sharing stories from the exceptional leaders he has worked with over the years-from entrepreneurs who have made an impact far beyond their businesses to a teacher who changed the lives of thirty students with one simple lesson-Spaulding gives us a simple recipe for turning transactions into interactions, offering more than "thoughts and prayers" to those in need, and transforming the lives each of us touch as we make our way through the world"-- Provided by publisher.
