Resources – GPA Midstream – 10/16/19

Resources from Don Watkins

At CIP, our presentations have two goals:

  1. Increase your clarity on energy issues
  2. Increase your positive influence on energy issues

These resource will help you take both to new heights.

I’m also offering you several bonuses to help you have more constructive conversations about energy.

(1) In our Energy Clarity and Energy Influencer newsletters, which you’re already subscribed to, we’ll share our best material on how to understand and communicate energy issues.

(2) This video will teach you one of the most powerful persuasion tactics I know: opinion stories.

(3) This video series, from Alex Epstein’s course “How to Have Constructive Conversations about Energy,” will teach you his step-by-step formula for having more constructive conversations.
