Influence & Persuasion Skills For REAL People
That’s a BIG question. And here’s your short answer...
If there’s one skill you can learn to improve your professional life, your personal life, and the lives of those you come in contact with every day… it’s persuasion.
But before your get the wrong idea, this isn't just another site about selling or marketing - although the salespeople, sales managers and marketers would do well to study up here!
Contrary to what you may have heard or seen elsewhere, real influence and persuasion isn’t about lying, schmoozing, manipulating, or deceit. It’s about clarity and belief. It’s about helping others to discover (on their own) what’s in their best interest.
Aesop said that persuasion is often more effectual than force.
For that reason, Authentic Persuasion isn’t necessarily just about making a sale or making money - although that’s often the byproduct of it.
Because what I publish on Reboot Authentic isn't just for salespeople or marketers.
Reboot Authentic is for the rest of us. The REAL people who slug it out doing their best every day. People from all walks of life and in all career fields.
It’s for people who have a burning desire to better themselves professionally and personally while legitimately improving the lives of those who you serve better.
If you want to learn how to sell or market yourself ethically and professionally... you’re in the right place.
If you’re an entrepreneur or small business owner who wants to grow a profitable business while earning a stellar reputation for integrity… you’re in the right place.
If you’re interested in being a better spouse, partner, parent, and friend… guess what?
You’re in the right place.
The answer to that question is pretty simple, really. The meaning is in the definition of each of the words that make up our name…
To start fresh or create a new, improved version of something.
Real, genuine, sincere, and devoid of B.S.
...or any kind of S really. Bulls aside, S from pretty much any animal has very little to do with what we do here : )
We teach skills, principles, and strategies that can help you become happier and more successful in both your personal and professional lives.
There are no gurus here. Thank God.
Also no ninjas, wizards, bad-ass (whatevers), or any of those other ridiculous titles people bestow upon themselves. There’s enough schmutz online. I refuse to add to it.
I sell no magic or secrets. I especially do NOT sell “secret sauce.” That frankly sounds really gross… and it’s an overused cliche. There is no such thing as secret sauce. And if there were, I’d advise you not to get it anywhere near your mouth.
All the content here is based on real-life experience, professional training, and research. We’ll cover skills, strategies, and principles that will actually help you become more successful at what you do.
Whether you’re a business owner, a manager, a solopreneur, or someone’s employee -- you’ll find something for you here.
Reboot Authentic is for everyone who wants to be more successful and create better work, better families, and better organizations.
We’re a community of REAL people from all walks of life working to help each other become happier and more successful.
And if you do happen to see a guru or wizard hanging around peddling their secret sauce… please inform the management. I’ll give ‘em the bum’s rush.
You may have noticed that I’ve not shared any information about myself to this point. I haven't listed my educational credentials, companies I’ve worked for, or positions that I’ve held.
You’ve probably also noticed there aren’t a collection of goofy glamour shot pictures of me on this page wearing a tux, leaning on a sports car, or posing in a “don’t I look smart” sort of fashion.
That's the kind of bogus varnish you won’t see here. EVER. Because Reboot Authentic isn’t about me. It’s about YOU and getting you to where you want to be.
That being said, it’s probably time to introduce myself to you...
Hello! I’m Gary Korisko.
I have nearly 30 years of experience in sales and marketing management on local to national levels - both as an employee and as an entrepreneur. In 2012, I started Reboot Authentic.
And that’s all you get on this page. :)
Like I said, this page is about you, so I’m not going to barf out my entire life story on you here.
However, if you’d like to know more about me, my story, and my experience, I’m pretty much an open book. You can get all the dirty little details on me here... where I do barf out my entire life story.
To "Reboot Authentic" means to reset things in your life - to create an even better, happier, more productive version of yourself and truly are. That sounds pretty great, right?
If it’s time for you to reboot things and create a better, more successful version of your personal and professional life, then you’re my kind of people. I want to know you.
