    If I have a friend or co-worker with a problem (work related or personal), and he wants help with it, how do I use persuasion to inspire him to use the solutions I share with him?

    Easy, have him imagine all the pain associated to not changing. The approach is that he can listen and get out of pain or not listen and stay in pain. But, say it more subtly like, Bruce, you know we talked about you doing XZY, you can keep doing what you’ve been doing and you can keep (pain), or you can do something different and get better results, it’s up to you.
