    Influence Game: 50 Insider Tactics from the Washington, D.C., Lobbying World that Will Get You to Yes

    Stephanie Vance

    John Wiley & Sons, 196 pages



Here are some popular reads from 800-CEO-READ:

•  “Start with Why”: In studying the leaders who have had the greatest influence in the world, Sinek discovered that they all think, act, and communicate in the exact same way – and it’s the complete opposite of what everyone else does. People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers might have little in common, but they all started with why. Sinek weaves together a clear vision of what it takes to lead and inspire.

•  “The Behavior Gap”: As a financial planner, Richards grew frustrated watching people make the same mistakes over and over. They were letting emotion get in the way of smart decisions. Using simple drawings, he found that once people understood their “behavior gap,” they started doing much better.

•  “Influence Game”: Imagine a world where you are offered every job you seek; every business venture you undertake is successful; and every potential customer you approach buys your product. Now imagine that all of this can be achieved – ethically and honestly. Former Washington, D.C. lobbyist Vance dispenses everything she’s learned. MCT
