Format: Paperback
Although this book is 10 years old, it remains very "current" and powerful. Communicating is the essence of what people do, and so often failure of good communications inhibits and injures. The book offers a great insight and practical approaches to improving communications and negotiating for positive outcomes. A "must" for anyone, but especially for people whose work involves communicating with others (most of us).

One of the best things about this book is that, as the title suggests, it effectively answers that old chestnut about NLP being manipulative. Genie has simplified the Meta Model down to five types of "Pointers" which you can anchor to your fingers so you can remember them easily! She also has useful exercises for developing sensory acuity.
As a UK NLP trainer I can wholeheartedly recommend this very clear, readable and useful book which anyone in business, or in fact anyone, will benefit from. Of course, being an NLP book, it's "enlivened" by a lot of crap illustrations, but don't let that put you off.

Having been a psychotherapist for over fifteen years and having struggled understanding sooooo many books on Neuro-Linguistic Programing, Dr. Laborde's book is a breath of fresh air. The topics are clear, powerful and practical in understanding and applying elements of NLP in improving communication. I can't believe the book has apparently been in and out of print as I consider it a "Classic".

Ms. Laborde carefully and sensitively outlines several aspects of communication patterns and possibilities. I've been helped tremendously by her book, and am frankly a little surprised that she hasn't become more well known and sought after. The book is deceptively simple, while being incredible profound. I eagerly await her next book.

Having been in sales for 20+ years no book has been as influential in my development of Negotiation,Conflict Resolution and Communication Skills as "Influencing with Integrity".

Establishing "Rapport" is the first step in any relationship and Genie Z. Laborde shows you the way!

It takes you into a whole new world of "awareness" by developing both verbal and nonverbal commication skills that you can utilize "in and out" of the office.

I first read this outstanding book when it was first published in 1984. I am still recommending it to my patients and students 23 years later. Laborde takes a complex subject and breaks it down into easy to digest bits that you can begin using in your daily life almost immediately. If you want to enhance your communication skills with your companions, your family, your boss, your employees, or your customers this is the book to get.

Be aware that this is not New Age mystical book. Rather it is a down-to-earth foundation for establishing mutual benefit between you and the people you interact with daily. I have introduced this book to other therapists, university professors, policemen, housewives and personal trainers. They have all raved about their increased capacity to get their message across and to understand their communication partners better.

I have used Laborde's book Influencing with Integrity for many years now to teach a variety of subjects within my specialty of workforce & HR Development including facilitation, presentation, teaching, and consulting. The book works especially well to instruct established consultants and budding consultants in how to approach a potential client and to influence without being manipulative; an ethical way to consult (not an oxymoron!)
Over the years I have been surprised how many secondary and post-seconary teachers with UG and Graduate degrees had not been exposed to these fundamental skills until they took my classes that teach them. I'm not sure what they are learning, but it appears its not how to teach!
I highly recommend Laborde's book. I plan to continue using it...Tim Hatcher

I am including a link to my book on ethics in work and organizations that has a focus on developing people in an ethical way. Ethics and HRD: A New Approach To Leading Responsible Organizations (New Perspectives in Organizati)

I have taken classes with Dr. Genie Laborde as well as reading this book. She is in Palo Alto for those who are close to the San Francisco Bay Area.

She has many very useful techniques for making your life more free as well as more fun.

Also being offered are weekly 1 hr online video classes. Just Google her name to get to the web site for more info.
