The Authority on Influence
As an experienced broadcaster and business executive, Connie Dieken is a trusted executive coach to many of today's successful leaders.
I am pro-influence and anti-manipulation. If you are, too, I hope you'll stand up and cheer for Tyler Schultz as you read his story. Tyler voiced his concerns about troubling practices at blood-testing start-up Theranos. So far, it has cost the now 26-year old (and his parents) $400,000 in legal fees and his once-close bond with his famous grandfather. He's living proof that influencing with integrity trumps manipulation.
The CEO firing was direct and dismissive. Barnes & Noble didn't stick to the bland yet reliable “we’re moving in a different direction” script when it booted Chief Executive Officer Ron Boire. They didn’t give him a gentle heave-ho with the old standby “he’s stepping down to pursue different opportunities” tale. Instead, Barnes & Noble whacked their CEO in bold fashion. The core issue is trust. And trust is an endless dance.
