Dan Weedin waxing poetic on the importance of finding out objectives of your prospect in determining fees. From the work and brain of Libby and Dan’s mentor, Alan Weiss. Alan is the author of Million Dollar Consulting and 40+ other books, including several on Value Based fees.

The NW Master Mentor events are uplifting, entertaining and enlightening. The knowledge and information that I have learned is priceless. Libby and Dan’s presentation hit home with me in a very personal and introspective way. It was an excellent workshop all the way around, and I can’t wait for the next one.

Another Rave Review on Libby & Dan

I always like getting good news, and happy clients are always good news!

Mark Walters, a terrific value-based attorney who attended last week, had this to say about his experience….

Lawyers like me attend continuing legal education courses to stay on top of the law and legal trends.  I attend business training workshops to sharpen my  business skills and knowledge.  This helps me stay strong as a trusted adviser to my clients, and it helps me grow my business.  This was a fantastic workshop and everyone took away far more value than the cost of admission.  I won’t miss Dan and Libby’s next event.  

Thanks, Mark! The next Libby & Dan session is scheduled for June 21st in Seattle. Registration details are forthcoming. Stay tuned!

The Influencing Option

In a profit culture, influencing beats commanding, controlling or ordering… every time!

And winning over your team is better than ordering or pushing them around.

But how to actually talk to your people with a language and philosophy that works for the long-term, supporting integrity and driving commitment? And without relying on conflict, heavy-handed authority or guilt?

Never fear, a new book The Influencing Option: The Art of Building a Profit Culture in Business by Libby Wagner just out from Global Professional Publishing can show you how. Candor and specificity, the book explains, should be your guiding lights.

With the huge loss of faith in leaders today and so many gross violations of ethical conduct popping up all around us, leading with integrity is a must for instilling a “commitment culture” that is at once transparent, participatory and sustainable. Thus to drive a continuously growing and superior profit culture today, influencing is the only way.

But do Libby’s ideas have traction in the marketplace? See what this sample of prominent business experts and executives has to say:

“If business is art and science, then who better than a consultant and poet to synergize the traits? Libby Wagner’s The Influencing Option is a tour de force!” 
– Alan Weiss, PhD, Author, Million Dollar Consulting and Thrive

“Libby has dedicated her life’s work to understanding the importance of working with people to help them better influence and lead more abundant and successful lives. She presents a true gift for those willing to open their hearts and minds to her message.” 
– Laurie Ruffner, Client Partner, The Ken Blanchard Companies

“Libby has helped my management team move from an unproductive, untrusted laughing stock to a respected, high-performing team. Trust, morale and productivity have all soared due to her influencing options approach. Hers is not flavor-of-the-month stuff but a process that transforms individual and team character with application at both work and home. I regret not understanding these principles earlier in my life and career.” 
– Michael Hassing, CEO, Family Health Centers
