Ben is a young manager who has been charged with persuading 500 employees to agree to a merger. Facing an impossible battle, he seeks the advice of an old friend, who introduces him to eccentric Aunt Elle.
In the week leading up to the crucial employee vote, Aunt Elle teaches Ben about the power of influence and positive persuasion. Ben also meets with the company's top executives, coming back with a new leadership lesson each time. Ben finally learns the critical principle so many people in power fail to grasp: it's not about me, it's about you.
Written with a light touch and filled with practical advice, this book will resonate with all who aspire to influential leadership.
