200. The Golden Age of Persuasion feat. Robert Cialdini

unSILOed with Greg LaBlanc

Dr. Robert Cialdini has spent his entire career conducting scientific research on what leads people to say “Yes” to requests and appeals. The results of his research, his ensuing articles, and New York Times bestselling books have earned him an acclaimed reputation as a respected scientist and engaging storyteller.His books, including “Influence” and “Pre-Suasion,” have sold more than 7-million copies in 44 different languages. Robert is also the Regents’ Professor Emeritus of Psychology and Marketing at Arizona State University.In this episode, Robert joins Greg to talk about what's changed in the 30 years between his published books; authority & credibility; the predominance of fear in our culture; and how they each teach ethics in their business courses.Episode Quotes:What is the importance of social scientists observing phenomena in the field? 6:49: I think it's crucially important for a couple of reasons. One is in the laboratory; we control or eliminate all sources that may affect our data except the ones that we are studying. That's what we try to do. Those may be the things that exist in the natural environment that could influence the effects, but we don't register their influence because we've eliminated them in the hothouse of the experimental lab. So, that's one thing. The other is we can see the power of the effects that we find in the field because if they are successful, they have overcome all of this myriad of other influences that are working on people—making decisions, making choices, in everyday situations to transcend all that ground noise that's going on, that could otherwise eliminate the effect if the effect wasn't strong enough to overpower those influences.How can we manage the constant barrage of appeals for our attention?26:50: There's one strategy that is the most powerful in rebalancing the scales against the larger impact that a salient argument has. And that is to consider the opposite.Influence as a leadership tool47:22: For leadership, you want influence in the long term. You want to create an aura that allows people to feel comfortable moving in your direction, even though they don't have to make a purchase or anything, but they're willing to go along with your preferences because you've established yourself as a credible source of authority for them.Show Links:Recommended Resources:Daniel KahnemanGuest Profile:Professional Profile at Arizona State UniversityRobert Cialdini WebsiteRobert Cialdini on TwitterRobert Cialdini on LinkedInHis Work:Influence At WorkInfluence, New and Expanded: The Psychology of PersuasionPre-Suasion: A Revolutionary Way to Influence and PersuadeThe small BIG: small changes that spark big influenceYes!: 50 Scientifically Proven Ways to Be Persuasive

Book review – "Influence" by Robert Cialdini

Under the Influence with Martin Harvey

"Influence. The Psychology of Persuasion" by Robert Cialdini is arguably the 'bible' of the influence literature. It lays out the core ideas on why people do what they do and what we can do to ethically influence them to make better decisions. It's the book that set me on the path of improving my communication. To celebrate the 50th episode of "Under The Influence" I have reviewed Cialdini's 6 principles of influence and how you, as a chiropractor, can apply them.

Influence (Robert Cialdini) - Book Review

Mere Mortals Book Reviews

As an expert reviewer I'm telling you that you will love this review, also because all your friends do and also because it's only here for a limited time!'Influence' by Robert Cialdini is an uncovering of the shortcuts we use to make decisions (and how these can be highjacked). He list 6 'weapons of influence' (or 7 depending on your edition) which were derived from studies, training observations and 1st hand experience in sales/marketing. He highlights these with interesting stories, modern and historical data, psychological experiments and even reports from readers on how they implemented this knowledge.I summarised the book as follows. "It's a fantastic explanation of modern behaviour and why we can sometime be fooled (or do the fooling). It really showcases why certain tactics of persuasion work with real life examples. If you are willing to introspect on how you are being influenced in every day life (or want to use these tricks to your advantage) it will be an extremely useful and practical read.I hope you have a fantastic day wherever you are in the world.
