The Actuation Zone, Putting Change Into Motion and Achieving Your GoalsJeffrey Hayzlett, celebrity judge on Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice TV show, and author of the best-selling book, The Mirror Test, recently appeared on The Actuation Zone radio show, hosted by Brett Clay, author of the award-winning book, Selling Change. In the interview, Hayzlett asks the tough business questions and suggests the changes that executives and business owners need to be making, right now, to grow their businesses.

Jeffrey Hayzlett, former CMO of Kodak, on the Cover of NSA Speaker MagazineIn an in-depth interview with Brett Clay, Jeffrey Hayzlett, business best-selling author — 800 CEO Read, Inc. Magazine, USA Today, and the Wall Street Journal — talks about the changes he’s seeing in the marketing and business worlds, including the change from “broadcasting to narrowcasting,” the role of social media in marketing, and much more.

“To succeed in business in the 21st century, salespeople and executives must not only adapt to change, they must lead change,” says host Brett Clay. “I want to hear from people like Jeffrey Hayzlett who are making it happen instead of reacting as it happens to them.”

Jeffrey Hayzlett is a master of driving change and creating opportunity. “If there ever were a candidate for a company to be rendered irrelevant by change, it would be Kodak,” says Clay. “Yet, Kodak has not only survived, it has thrived. Jeff was there when it happened and played an instrumental role in Kodak’s evolution.”

In The Actuation Zone interview Hayzlett also shares the key concepts that have driven his book to be a best-seller, including asking tough business questions, the four E’s of customer relations in social media, the power of ones and zeros, and the powerful ‘118 rule’. He says, “Business owners, executives, marketers, and salespeople must be able to communicate their value in 118 seconds.” Hayzlett describes why and how in the interview.

Clay and Hayzlett also discuss how to make big changes and the concept of ‘conditions of satisfaction’. Hayzlett says, “Conditions of satisfaction is one of the most valuable concepts I’ve ever learned in life.”

Finally, Hayzlett suggests three changes people can make, right now, to grow their businesses. “It doesn’t matter whether you have 2, 27, or 27,000 people in your company,” says Hayzlett. “You need to make these changes, now, to survive and grow your business.”
