The Influencer Book – Changing the World

A new book is about to be released that is closely tied to communications and business communications – Influencer: The Power to Change Anything. It is written by the same group of people who wrote the New York Times bestseller Crucial Conversations, another great book involving business communications. Influencer is scheduled for nationwide release to book stores on Oct 1, 2007. The authors are Kerry Patterson, Joseph Grenny, David Maxfield, Ron McMillan, and Al Switzler of the company VitalSmarts.Influencer%20Book.jpg

I’m excited to get a copy of this book. Influencer is the culmination of a 20-year long project to document the best and most powerful ideas social science has accumulated in the past five decades. As one of the authors, Joseph Grenny, said: "Our new book describes vital work done by the most influential social scientist of the past 50 years who have shown repeatedly that most any behavior can be changed if you just know how to do it. In addition, we've traveled over 100,000 miles to report first-hand about the miraculous work of some quiet but brilliant influencers who have solved world-scale problems in world-class ways—by influencing the behavior of millions of human beings. The stories are astounding and the principles are life changing. We've felt a tremendous sense of responsibility to do justice to these ideas. I hope we came close. You be the judge!"

I feel this book could be very impactful and inspirational—it discusses scores of amazing people from all walks of life, business, and nationality, who have made real changes in this world, who have answered the question "How can one person change the world?" I’m curious to see the role of communications in these stories.

The book is available for pre-order online at a 34% discount through Amazon.com and Barnes&Noble if you order before Oct 1, 2007. Also, you can then access a free case study video about some of the Influencers around the world by going back to http://www.influencerbook.com/offer and entering your order confirmation #. Here is a great new Influencer book trailer video on YouTube:

Web-Scheduled Standard Conferences

One of the services that I use quite often is free telephone conferencing.  Web-Scheduled Standard is a free telephone conferencing service that can be use immediately after signing up for a user account.  The way it works is everyone participating in the conference call the same dial-in number.  This service is free; the caller may be charged a long distance or tolls by their individual phone companies.  The moderator or host of the conference usually calls in first and can have up to as many as 100 callers; although the conference begins when the first caller enters the conference and ends when the last caller exits the conference.  The maximum time is 3 hours per conference call.  This only one free conference calling service and they are great to use.  I use them all the time.

Controlling Customers with GoToAssist?

Now here’s an online tool that really caught my eye.  GoToAssist advertises to control your customers, resolve more support calls the first time and “significantly increase customer satisfaction.”  It definitely does not sound like outsourcing.  GoToAssist is a secure Web-based screen-sharing solution that enables full remote desktop sharing with mutual mouse and keyboard control between you and your customers.  It requires no installation on end-user machines, and it works with firewalls.  Get this, they guarantee you will see immediate results.  Scott Antczak, Manager of Technical Support says, “With GoToAssist, we can handle more calls in the same amount of time, while improving the level of service.”  Hey, you know me; I’m all for helping improve customer satisfaction.

Online Collaboration Makes Life Easier

It’s time to share a new product.  Office 2.0 is new online collaboration that brings business communications and productivity through your web browser.  Rajen Sheth at a conference said, “Office 2.0” collaboration will be about composing a document, publishing it, collaborating with others and then being able to easily find that document afterwards.”  Currently, workers often collaborate via e-mail and then file various parts of that exchange in disparate enterprise systems and this is where Office 2.0 is closing the gap.  Key for business users in the ability to share, edit and add outside information to a document in real-time online. Office 2.0 includes various web tools, such as forms, databases, blogs, wikis, images and drop-down lists.
