Harness the Science of Positive Influence
We all want to have a positive impact, but often, despite our best intentions, we're tripped up by subtle psychological states we're not even aware of. It doesn't have to be that way. In ""Lift,"" Ryan and Robert Quinn combine cutting-edge social science and real-world examples to describe four mindsets that will help you become aware of the unconscious ways you're holding yourself and others back. They offer tested, practical guidelines and practices for exerting positive influence in any situation. The Quinns go beyond mere tactics--if you take the lessons in ""Lift"" to heart, you will not simply wield positive influence, you will by your very nature become a positive influence.
The creation of a more positive life has long been the domain of prophets, poets and philosophers. We are now beginning to supplement the visionary wisdom of the prophets, poets and philosophers with the factual observations of social science, which says that positivity is key to success. Bestselling author Robert E. Quinn and his son Ryan Quinn present a combination of science and stories to illustrate the tools for achieving a transformative new vision, a new voice and a new and positive perspective in any situation.
