Studying the impact of innovation on business and society

WTF: What’s the Future Podcast – 11 Habits to Become a Master Influencer with Author Jason Harris

In episode 1 of WTF: What’s the Future, I interview my dear friend Jason Harris explore his new book,The Soulful Art of Persuasion.

The Soulful Art of Persuasion is a revolutionary guide to becoming a master influencer in the age of distrust, through the cultivation of character-building habits that are essential to personal growth and sustained business success.

Jason is also the CEO of the pioneering advertising agency Mekanism. We go WAY back to the early days of digital, before digital marketing was even a universal movement. We pioneered many of the campaigns that would become standard for “viral” and “influencer” marketing. We also reimagined the art and science of book design by taking cues from mobile UX and applying them to print. I tell the story of developing WTF and X as “analog apps” here.

But back to the matter at hand. In this inspiring conversation, we focus on what it takes to earn influence in an age of distrust and the character-building habits that are essential to both personal growth and sustained business success.

We also cover:

Empathy in business

Effective storytelling

Building more human brands
