  • Was that your greatest failure of all time?
  • Email questions from Roxanne…PTSD, social anxiety…etc.
  • What can you still do? Celebrate small victories!

  •  Autonomy Rules! We hate it when others tell us what to do!
  • Our language limits us! We can limit ourselves with our language
  • Instant Influence by Michael Pantalon is an excellent book, so buy it!
  • In a study, people did the exact opposite of what they were told to do or not do!
  • We resist the arbitrary imposition of somebody else’s structure…
  • If you reinforce autonomy first, you’ll be much more influential!
  • Why is a useful word, but not when you’re focusing on a problem…
  • Why might (x) be a great thing to do works really well!

Special Breaking News!

  • The Deadpan Stare Invalidation Intervention!
  • Mike brilliantly names Chris’ daughters: Fraylikka and Trojana!

Empowering Questions: Ask yourself: Who in my life is my greatest communication challenge, and what influence can I have that can and will make things much better? Which communication skill can and will I apply to improve things with that one person?
