John Baker "The Asking Formula”

March 17, 2011 – Minnesota Valley Country Club, 6300 Auto Club Road Bloomington, MN

Successful people -- in all walks of life -- are those who are fundamentally better at asking for what they want. And successful "askers” typically get what they want more often. This common skill, of how to effectively ask for what you want, is generally not taught nor practiced, but is essential in achieving our goals and aspirations at work and in our personal lives.

Asking is at the root of all successful influential communication and is the most important factor in driving desirable outcomes. Unfortunately, there are a lot of people who sabotage themselves and fail to achieve their goals through bad asking technique. The Asking Formula™ is a proven, common-sense approach to increasing your level of success. Whether you are asking for a budget, a promotion or even just time with your CEO or Board of Directors the chances for a desired outcome could hinge on how you ask.

Our returning speaker, John Baker has led thousands of individuals at various Executive Management levels with leading companies like American Express. He has consulted with the country's leading corporations as well as the US Army and US Department of Defense. Over a year ago, John presented to SIM on the topic of "Ready Thinking” and received excellent reviews. In his second book, "The Asking Formula - Ask For What You Want...And Get It", John presents his unique system for adapting inductive reasoning into influential communication.

During the first hour John will introduce The Asking Formula™ an effective, straightforward and high-impact inductive pattern for structuring your leadership communication to routinely get what you want. In the second hour he will lead the group through a workshop which will provide:

• Techniques to enhance your communication confidence and specific tools that can be applied immediately to your specific job that will increase your effectiveness and productivity.

• A means to lead and teach others how to increase their personal performance and communication effectiveness.

• The significant differences between influential levels of communication that can get you caught in fruitless, frustrating information loops.

• How to avoid common leadership communication pitfalls that act as roadblocks to achieving goals.

• How to structure your written and electronic communications using the same high impact formula.
