Tip Thursday - Influence
When you are looking for someone you know to comply with a request, attach a personalized sticky note onto it. Research shows that compliance to the request will almost double over a request made without a sticky note attached. Apparently the use of the sticky note makes the page look cluttered, which the brain doesn't like, calling attention to it. The personalization of the note forms a stronger connection to the person behind the request, making it more difficult to ignore. Got something you need to ask a co-worker for? Put a sticky on it!
