Heart of Influence: Assertive Communication as a Lifestyle (2004) is the first book written by Act Knowledge founder Jürgen Oschadleus.
From the back cover:
Our communication is like the blood flowing through our veins. A healthy heart distributes life, just as assertive communication enhances quality of life and our ability to bring enduring change.
Jürgen shows us how we can live a life of influence, centred on the three cornerstones of persuasion identified by Aristotle over 2 300 years ago: ethos, pathos and logos—character, passion and logic.
- A heart of influence, meeting the needs and interests of others.
- A heart of influence, fostering relationships with those around us.
- A heart of influence, founded on character and integrity.
The book retails for AUD 24.95. A free copy of the Introduction is available here.
