Made To Stick

Do you feel that your ideas lose momentum quickly? You can use the tactics in this book to make your ideas “sticky.” Sticky ideas are those that “are understood and remembered, and have a lasting impact – they change your audience’s opinion or behavior.” Sticky ideas have six traits.

They are simple, unexpected, concrete, credible, emotional, and told as stories, and this summary covers the counterintuitive and well-researched tactics for transforming your ideas so that they stick.Learn why simple does not mean “dumbed down.” Understand how unexpected is more than a gimmicky surprise and the ways to not just capture but hold your audience’s interest.

Case Study

Shoe Dog — Anecdotes from Nike

The iconic Nike sporting goods company started over 50 years ago as a ‘crazy idea’ in the mind of a young runner in Oregon. Shoe Dog is Phil Knight’s personal memoir of the company that started with him selling running shoes he called Tigers out of the back of his car. Along the way, he learned the importance of assembling a team of brilliant, dedicated, like-minded individuals; of focusing on people before profit; and of not being afraid to stand up to challenges and face them on your own terms.

Apple's battery replacement program, and what you can learn from it

In 2017, consumers were shocked to discover that Apple had been slowing down iPhone devices with overused batteries. As a result, a series of legal suits began, and Apple introduced a $29 battery replacement program.

How to Fire Your Enemies as a Group...

We interviewed a group of HR corporate executives at a recent Fortune 100 event and came upon a fascinating new layoff tactic. This tactic is relevant to (1) managers in mid-to-large organizations who wish to improve their political capital, and (2) non-managers who do not wish to be laid off. As a manager, you can use this tactic to gain power by eliminating individuals who tax your reputation and your political capital.
