What one simple tactic will improve your negotiation skills and outcomes? Why do most people think they're immune to social pressures? Can being aware of these influences make you more likely to overcome them? Jonah Berger joins us this week to answer these questions and more about why people act the way they do.

Jonah's book, Invisible Influence: The Hidden Forces that Shape Behavioris all about the subtle social influences that affect our decision-making processes every day. Through research, Jonah and others have revealed that many things -- products, people, and decisions included -- don't succeed or fail just based on quality, but more often because of unseen social forces. Jonah also details the fascinating connection between individual motivation and the success of others around you.
