Dan Pink’s Video on Instant Influence & Persuasion

by Michael Pantalon on May 29, 2014

Watch Dan’s great new (and very short) video on how you can use two of my Instant Influence questions to persuade people.  He’s also incorporated them into his newest book on sales, “To Sell Is Human.”  If you have anything at all to do with sales (which now, is everyone), get it right away – it’s fantastic!


Step Stones are beautiful pieces of jewelry that hold an activity monitor.  The monitor transmits the activity data to a mobile app.  The app is based, in part, on my book and helps inspire people to walk more, the single healthiest activity.  Along with motivational questions and messages, the app also translates steps into charitable giving through corporate sponsorship.  That way, the more you walk, the more you help others.

Check out the video here.

FULL DISCLOSURE: This is my wife’s GoFundMe campaign to make the Step Stones prototype, so it is a project that is near and dear to me.  However, it is THE best idea I’ve heard in a long, long time.

Please consider liking it on Facebook, sharing it with others on Twitter or LinkedIn, or maybe even contributing.  

Thank you!
