Influence: The Ultimate Power Tool

Robert B. Cialdini identifies those psychological principles that will most effectively influence others to say "yes" to requests and helps participants recognize how to employ these principles in positive (rather than manipulative) ways to produce change in others that is effective and ethical.

One of the best I have ever seen. ~Mike

Tim Wise: on white privilege

"In this spellbinding lecture, Tim Wise ... offers a unique, inside-out view of race and racism in America. Expertly overcoming the defensiveness that often surrounds these issues, Wise provides a non-confrontational explanation of white privilege and the damage it does not only to people of color, but to white people as well. This is an invaluable classroom resource: an ideal introduction to the social construction of racial identities, and a critical new tool for exploring the often invoked - but seldom explained - concept of white privilege."
Introduction (3:07) -- The erasure of politics & culture (10:13) -- White denial (12:55) -- Unburdened by race (6:42) -- The creation of whiteness: how race was used to hide class (9:23) -- Privilege & pathology (11:17) -- Guilt & responsibility (3:30)

This is a very comprehensive lecture outlining the history of race identity in the USA. ~Mike
