This science is the key to better, more productive interactions, not only with potential clients and colleagues, but also with family and friends. This course is based on ground-breaking research by New York Times bestselling author, Dan Solin.
It was largely to help myself.
I used to believe what I was saying was more important than what I was hearing. Instead of really listening, I was usually waiting for the other person to stop talking. My interactions were like two billiard balls bouncing off each other.
When we empower others to talk about themselves, the brain activity in those people is similar to when they're engaged in their most pleasurable activities. Talking about yourself releases certain hormones that make you feel good. Doing so causes you to project traits of likeability and trustworthiness onto the person who encourages you to talk.
That's why I wrote Ask and turned it into this impactful course.

The simple concepts that will transform your business and personal relationships.
How losing the "battle of agendas" will enhance all of your interactions and bring greater success and fulfillment.

Learner in November 2021
I experienced a traumatic brain injury and prefer to leave comments after a second or third viewing of material like this. However on first blush as with all of Dan Solin’s work I am left feeling inspired that I can make changes in my way of being that truly improves the quality of my life and those around me, by being the type of person I genuinely want to be, thoughtful, helpful and sincere.
