In this episode I had the opportunity to sit down with Ron McMillan. He is a four-time New York Times best-selling co-author of Crucial Conversations, Crucial Confrontations, Influencer, and Change Anything. He knows his stuff when it comes to creating lasting change.

The interview answers a lot of questions, including:

How do you create lasting change in Elder Quorum and Relief Society?
How do you get past the Will Power Trap?
How should a bishop approach a situation where someone is dealing with addiction?
How does motivation and ability play a role in influencing long-term change?

6-Source Model of Influence
