Influence et manipulation
Robert Cialdini

The only difference between the two concepts is the intention. We speak of manipulation when techniques are used to take control of a person or group of people. On the other hand, we are talking about influence when it is used to help or promote a person.

Here the writer raises a very interesting question: why do people do things against their will? What reasons make us say "yes" to certain things, even though internally we think "no"? Robert Cialdini shares his analysis, the fruit of years of research into persuasion techniques. Throughout the book, he reveals the "psychological" secrets behind this reaction that each of us has, which is the result of a certain influence, as well as the means used by some manipulation specialists (salesmen, marketers, etc.). Finally, the book teaches us how to fight these influences and stop allowing ourselves to be influenced in our choices.

Start with WHY

Simon Sinek

Simon Sinek argues in his book that it is the 'why' that inspires action, motivates people and keeps them motivated in difficult times. It is by embodying this 'why' and effectively communicating it to people that we will become an inspirational leader, says Sinek. "People don't buy what you do," he explains. They buy why you do it."

The author reinforces this thesis with various examples of companies and leaders who have succeeded through a model he calls the "golden circle". Imagine a target with different circles: the 'what' and the 'how', with the 'why' in the centre.

He explains how each of us can achieve greater success and satisfaction by inspiring others with a common goal, as opposed to the coercive and manipulative tactics most commonly used in conventional marketing.

What can we learn?

In his book, Simon Sinek offers a redefinition of what constitutes true leadership, and a great tool for restoring purpose-driven passion to your own work.

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck
Mark Manson

Warning This latest book goes against all self-help books

The Subtle Art of Not Caring is your chance to dare to be happy in your own way and lead a happier, more down-to-earth life.

In this generation-defining self-help guide, superstar blogger Mark Manson tells us how to stop trying to be 'positive' and achieve true happiness.

For years we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, abundant life. But..." Let's be honest, shit happens in everyone's life and you have to live with it," says Mark Manson.

This advice is a dose of raw, refreshing and honest truth that is sorely lacking today.

The book The Subtle Art of Not Caring is his antidote to the dull "let's be happy" mentality that infects our society. Manson makes the argument, backed up by both academic research and anecdotes, that improving our lives depends not only on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but also on our ability to digest them better.

In his bestselling book, the author suggests :

  • Know your limits and accept them

  • Know how to face painful truths.

  • Recognize your fears and insecurities.

  • Find true courage, perseverance, honesty and responsibility.

"A truly happy person does not feel the need to stand in front of a mirror and repeat "I am happy" 50 times. They are just happy."
