How To Have Massive Influence | Compelling People by John Neffinger & Matthew Kohut (Book Review)

Read more

Compelling People is easily one of my top 5 favourite books. It's had a huge effect on my life and my impact as an entrepreneur. In this episode, I review the book and share my main takeaways.


Hi, I’m Jeremy Sherk - entrepreneur, speaker, world traveler, and health nut. In 2012, I was living the 4-hour workweek dream, eating coconuts and mangos while running a lucrative internet business on the beach in Thailand. But to my surprise, the dream turned into a nightmare. Early retirement on the beach was cool and all, but it got boring fast as I found myself lonely, depressed, and unfulfilled. To add insult to injury, I racked up $100K in debt due to some bad business decisions and an unsustainable lifestyle.

Today, I run Nested Naturals, a wellness company on a mission to empower people through nature to rise to their highest potential. On this podcast, I document my entrepreneurial journey and share hard-earned wisdom on success mindset, entrepreneurship, and rising to your highest potential in life. Make sure to subscribe so you get notified of new episodes.

L044 – IZAZOVNI LJUDI: skrivene kvalitete koje nas čine utjecajnima // John Neffinger & Matthew Kohut

Read more
Svi želimo biti utjecajniji, no većina nas smatra da ne možemo istrenirati osobni magnetizam ili karizmu koju povezujemo s ljudima poput Billa Clintona ili Oprah Winfrey, odnosno, često vjerujemo da su to kvalitete s kojima se čovjek (ne)rađa.
U knjizi Compelling People John Neffinger i Matthew Kohut pokazuju da karizma nije nešto sa čime se moramo roditi, to je nešto što možemo naučiti. Autori istražuju put do utjecaja kroz ravnotežu dvije emocije - snage i topline.
Oslanjajući se na najsuvremenija istraživanja iz područja društvenih znanosti, kao i vlastitog istraživanja i rada s rukovoditeljima Fortune 500 kompanija, članovima Kongresa, TED govornicima i dobitnicima Nobelove nagrade, Compelling People objašnjava kako možemo naučiti koristiti te dvije emocije koje u komunikaciji mogu izazvati divljenje, poštovanje i naklonost drugih.
