Enchantment: The Art of Changing Hearts, Minds, and Actions BUY NOW
The author of the international bestseller The Art of the Start offers a new perspective on the art of influence.
Guy Kawasaki's acclaimed books have established him as the entrepreneur's entrepreneur, and in The Art of the Start he wrote the essential contemporary guide for starting any new enterprise. Now Kawasaki turns to the mystery of influence and offers a compelling new take on this key force that drives any successful business or personal interaction.
Enchantment's fundamental message is that in any transaction the goal is not to get your own way, but to bring about a voluntary, enduring, and delightful change of heart in other people, by working with and through them and enlisting their own goals and desires. It's enchantment that enables us to maneuver through difficult decisions, break people's entrenched habits, defy the wisdom of crowds, and get colleagues to work for long-term goals.
