Description

At around one year old, Jonah Berger’s son started saying the word “peas.” What he really meant to say was “please,” but that didn’t matter. It was the first time his son realized that words can have magical effects. Magic words are all around us, whether we are trying to persuade a client, motivate a team, or even just talk to our peers. In this episode, Jonah is back on YAP to talk about his newest book, Magic Words. He will take a deep dive into how to persuade, communicate, and connect. He will cover the different types of words that can increase our impact in every area of our lives!
