Be Different

  • Surprise your audience by simply being different.
  • Today, audiences judge you on your personal moral code and whether you put your unique self—or the opinions of others—first. They respond to people with a point of view, people who stand for something original, whether they agree or disagree.
  • Be raw and honest. Be overexposed.

Overexposure

Overexposure means being utterly connected with and open about what makes you, you. By overexposing yourself, your ideas, your products, and your services, you allow audiences unfiltered access to your true intentions—the how, what, and why of what you are doing. So, if you want to connect, take what you do best and own it.

Good,bad Or Ugly

  • Leader’s job was to set a vision and align people with it.

  • But today being bad requires being brave, and it is this truth that will enhance your credibility, humanity, and authenticity as a leader.

The Endowment Effect

Perfectly Imperfect

  • Psychologist Elliot Aronson’s famous “Pratfall” experiment demonstrates that most men, and many women, actually like people more when they behave imperfectly.

Keeping It Real

  • Research shows that when consumers participate in the process of creating and personalizing a product, they generate a greater sense of intimacy with that product and are more likely to buy it
  • Customizing a product and being involved in the design process also gives audiences more control, which increases their feelings of psychological ownership.

The Power Of Why

Don’t Worry About Making Mistakes

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
