Faculty | Online

Zoe Chance will be joined by Ana Victoria Gil (MAM '21) in this fireside chat to discuss Zoe's new book, Influence Is Your Superpower. The book is based on Mastering Influence and Persuasion, the most popular elective at Yale SOM. 

You were born influential, a natural at persuading others to take care of you. But then you were taught to suppress that power, follow the rules, wait your turn, and not make waves. But influence is the secret sauce that brings great ideas to life and makes people want to say yes to you. Used intelligently, it's like a superpower that can make good things happen. And Zoe will help you develop that power. She's a Harvard-trained behavioral scientist who draws on groundbreaking research in behavioral economics, neuroscience, and psychology. And she'll show you how to effect change that's meaningful, durable, and contagious.
