Back a couple months ago RedpoleQ wrote a pretty good article about how to win friends and influence people by offering value.
If you’ve been under a rock for the last 50 years, Dale Carnegie wrote an extremely popular book titled, “How to Win Friends and Influence People“. The book was written after Carnegie studied the lives of well respected and accomplished leaders to find out just how they were able to affect the change around them characteristic of their careers.
Our own RedpoleQ has put in a tremendous amount of work learning about relationships and social dynamics on a very large scale. While Carnegie was right on a lot of the points he made, RedpoleQ highlights one critical factor that Carnegie missed — providing others value.
That article sparked a number of emails asking how it is possible to provide value to win the favour of others without looking needy. We finally had the chance to sit down and talk about on camera. Enjoy!
