The Best Way To Give Advice

Posted on 21. Apr, 2010 by in Strategy

…is to offer information!

Lifehacker.com (one of my favorite blogs BTW) has some good advice for giving advice. This come from a recent psychology study which states:

For one thing, when someone makes a recommendation for or against a particular option, a decision maker may feel like they have lost a bit of their independence in making a choice. Recommendations about how to go about making the choice may also make a decision maker feel a loss of independence. When the advice comes in the form of information, though, the decision maker still feels like they have some autonomy.

So the next time you feel like giving advice remember that information is more powerful that instruction!
