Episode 279 - Meta Programs and Mindset
What is a meta-program and how does it help you become a better persuader? A meta program is the way we lean most of the time in terms of the way we act and react to most stimuli.  

We all hate to be put in a box and categorized, but the reality is that (most of the time) we are predictable. Sure, people can never be 100 percent predictable, but you will be amazed at how predictable we actually are

Meta-programs are essentially the “looking glasses” through which we view the world. The classic “Is the glass half full or half empty?” is a perfect meta-program example. Meta-programs control our personality and therefore how we behave and how we liked to be influenced.

For instance, do you tend to be more of an active or passive person? Do you focus more internally or externally about the world around you? Two people may interpret the exact experience from totally different angles.

Find out your own meta programs and how to adjust your persuasion for each meta program. Join me for this week’s podcast on Meta Programs and Mindset

Episode 278 - How to Influence Up (And To The Side)
Do you negotiate with people of equal authority? Do you have to deal with other managers or senior management? Do you have to sell to people that feel like they know more than you? 

Understand the ability to gain trust, persuade people and influence without authority is a key component of persuasion and negotiation. This week’s podcast will focus on how to influence when there is no authority, no title or no power. Master this skill of influencing up (and to the side) – it is easier than you think.
