Imagine How You Can Change The World

Dr. Phil has an in-depth conversation with Dr. Frank Luntz, President of Frank I. Luntz & Associates, survey research and consulting firm, and an American political communications consultant. The conversation is not just us versus them anymore. It is NOW us or nothing. Luntz isn’t merely saying ‘be a nice person.' He is saying we have to listen in order to be heard, and if we want something done we are going to have to be heard by those who oppose us. Listen to this open and honest conversation and rethink and reimagine the future of humanity.

Source: Words That Work: It's Not What You Say, It's What People Hear By Frank Luntz Ten rules for successful communication:

1. Simplicty: Use small words

2. Brevity: Use short sentences

3. Credibility is as important as philosophy

4. Consistency matters

5. Novelty: Offer something news

6. Sound and texture matters

7. Speak aspirationally, people forget what you say but not how you made them feel

8. Visualize, the word “imagine” is an incredibly powerful tool

9.Ask a question, help them reach the point on their own

10.Provide context and explain relevance

– The ability to grasp the human dimension of every situation;

– The ability to know what questions to ask and when to ask them;

– The ability to see the challenge, and the solution, from every angle;

– The ability to communicate their vision passionately and persuasively;

– The ability to connect with others and create an enduring chemistry; and 10 other universal attributes of winners.

“Orwell also lays out a series of language rules. Every one of them is sound writing advice, whether you’re looking for your first job or you’ve already reached the pinnacle of corporate or political success:

1. Never use a metaphor, simile, or other figure of speech which you are used to seeing in print.

2. Never use a long word where a short one will do.

3. If it is possible to cut a word out, always cut it out.

4. Never use the passive where you can use the active.

5. Never use a foreign phrase, a scientific word, or a jargon word if you can think of an everyday English equivalent.

6. Break any of these rules sooner than say anything outright barbarous.”

Dr. Frank I. Luntz

Frank Luntz is one of the most honored communication professionals in America today. “The Nostradamus of pollsters,” said Sir David Frost, while Time magazine named him one of “50 of America’s most promising leaders aged 40 and under,” and Newsweek magazine identified him as No. 24 on their American Power Elite survey. He finished 87th in a Time magazine global poll of the “most influential people in the world.” Frank was named one of the four “Top Research Minds” by Business Week, “the hottest pollster” by The Boston Globe, “pollster extraordinaire” by the BBC, and was a winner of The Washington Post’s coveted “Crystal Ball” award for being the most accurate pundit, and “the person you turn to for the truth” by Bloomberg News. His focus groups have become so influential that Barack Obama had this to say following the PBS presidential debate: “When Frank Luntz invites you to talk to his focus group, you talk to his focus group.”

More media outlets have turned to Dr. Luntz to understand the hopes and fears of Americans than to any other political pollster. The “Instant Response” focus group technique he pioneered has been profiled on 60 Minutes, Good Morning America (on Election Day), the BBC, and on PBS’s award-winning Frontline. He has been a guest on virtually every talk show in America, including multiple appearances on Meet the Press, Nightline, The Today Show, HBO, The PBS News Hour, Face the Nation, Good Morning Britain, and Bill Maher.

For more than a decade, Frank was the Focus Group Czar for Fox News. In both 2011 and 2015, Frank was the only non-journalist invited to host a debate of the GOP presidential contenders. Frank also served for five years as a news analyst for CBS News, focusing on corporate and business communications, moving to ABC News in 2017. He was a consultant to the NBC hit show The West Wing as well as the popular CBS drama Bull.
