You Can Change Other People: The Four Steps to Help Your Colleagues, Employees—Even Family—Up Their Game

Peter Bregman, Howie Jacobson

"People often say "you can't change other people." But that's not true. If you're a leader or a manager in an organization, you have to change other people. It's your job. If you care about the people in your life who aren't reaching their potential or, worse, are acting in self-destructive ways, it's your heart's desire. The problem isn't that you can't change other people, the problem is that the things you do and say to try to change them don't work because you're doing and saying the wrong things. This book provides step-by-step instructions for a seven-stage process to help people move from point A to point B. It's a carefully crafted system honed through three decades of professional application, presented with sample scripts and cartoon illustrations that make it immediately actionable. If you're trying to help the people you care about - whether professionally or personally, you can turn things around in your very next conversation. Within 20 minutes, you can change how you talk to people - and influence them for the better"--

Can You Really Change Other People?

By Peter Bregman, Howie Jacobson

In You Can Change Other People, the world's #1 executive coach, Peter Bregman, and Howie Jacobson, Ph.D., share the Four Steps to help the people around you make positive change -- even if they've been stuck for years.

The authors rely on over 50 years of collective professional experience to show you exactly what to say to influence those around you for the better. Changing the way you talk will stop you from being perceived as a critic, and turn you into a welcomed and effective ally. You'll learn how to:
