The hidden motivators that inform how we listen, what we say, and whether we act
Thanks to text messaging, email and social media, we are constantly in conversation with one another. Yet despite our chatty nature, many of us struggle to communicate clearly and effectively when speaking in person to another human being. We don’t know what to say, say the wrong thing, say nothing at all, or retreat back to the relative safety of our devices. As a result, our relationships suffer. What’s gone wrong, and how do we fix it?
The way you communicate with others begins with yourself. The Decision Drivers™ offers an easy-to-understand and practical guide for heightening your self-awareness and improving your ability to communicate in a way that positively engages and influences others.
Drawing on decades of expertise, communications trainer and marketing consultant Sandy Gerber introduces you to the four emotional motivators that affect everything from the way you listen to the way you respond during a conversation.
Through a carefully crafted step-by-step process, Gerber teaches you how to identify your primary Decision Driver™ and helps you understand how that driver influences your behaviour, the choices you make, and your communication style.
With that self-awareness established, Gerber lays out the techniques that enable you to identify the Decision Drivers™ of others. Through this process, Gerber empowers you to understand and empathize with other points of view and speak in a relatable way that makes others want to listen.
Whether you’re struggling to communicate with your partner, seeking to improve workplace relationships, or looking to become an industry or community leader, Gerber’s approach to Influential Communication will help you to make genuine connections, inspire action, and drive results.
WOMAN OF WORTH
DEFINING MOM SUCCESS
Motherhood is messy, brilliant, overwhelming … and full of so much love it can stop your heart in its tracks. When you add in a career or business, the juggling act stretches you to new heights. Sometimes it brings you to your knees, but you keep your heart open and you keep going because you believe in you and you believe that you can do both jobs well.
These authors will share the highs and lows of their journeys and the gems of how they made it all work—how they survived and how they’ve thrived. Their stories will make you laugh and cry and will inspire you to shine. 100% of royalties from the book sales go to the Woman Of Worth Foundation, a non-profit that educates and empowers women to connect, collaborate, and rise as business and community leaders.
In Chapter 15, “Defining Mom Success,” Gerber confronts the challenges of being a career-driven woman and a dedicated mother. From separation guilt to establishing healthy boundaries between work and play, Gerber lays everything bare as she boldly redesigns her life and work in order to share more time and experiences with her young children.
Through her narrative she introduces readers to a pressing question: “What does mom success look like?” In seeking an answer, Gerber draws on her life experience and skills as an innovative marketing strategist to establish her “Momlogy,” a list of values she wants to instill in her children.
As she seeks to create teachable moments and memories, she endures life’s ups and downs—an abusive marriage, divorce, single parenthood—and emerges with a greater understanding of the relationship between motherhood and success.
If you need to improve your work-life balance, swap negative self-talk for positive assurance, or turn off the autopilot and become more present in your day-to-day activities, “Defining Mom Success” is the blueprint you need to craft your own “Momlogy.”
