The simplicity of Be the Sun, Not the Salt makes the complex topic of what it means to be heliotropic much easier to comprehend. Although it sounds daunting, Dr. Harry Cohen paints a clear picture of what it means to be positive, empathetic, kind, genuine, etc., and offers plenty of examples of small ways to practice these behaviors in our daily lives. I have witnessed readers of all ages discuss what they learned from Be the Sun, Not the Salt, and even young children were able to speak to what it means to be the sun and why everyone should do it. If the new generations can understand this, imagine what this movement could inspire in everyone else!

By practicing positivity and the heliotropic effect, I have been able to improve and strengthen the relationships in my life both personal and professional. The wisdom within Be the Sun, Not the Salt is easy to understand and can be applied to almost all aspects of daily life. Plus, lots of what Harry writes is easy to remember and serves as a friendly reminder to Be the Sun!

I have a relative who is usually very salty with good reason. I called him the other day to check in and he didn't call me back for two days. I left a second message saying I was just concerned since I had not heard back and was not going to stand on ceremony waiting for him to call since I know he's got a lot going on. He was so grateful and appreciative of that message I almost fell off my chair!

Dr. Harry's message is a universal truth; be a good person and treat people so that they are drawn to you. It's not just good advice for life, it turns out to be great for managing people and a business. It's so good I teach it to my employees and my kids. This stuff really works.

Being critical or pessimistic is easy. Being the sun is hard work--but the effects are all-encompassing. Heliotropic leadership affects all those around us, but most importantly, it helps you become a better person, from a positive change from within.

Dr. Harry's coaching philosophy of Do More of That, is a great guide to building your best self/team. Intentionally look for you/your team at their best. Lead with the 5 to 1 strategy, and you will produce more engaged team members. In our office, we are always watching for what went well and pointing it out, so we can repeat it in as many areas as possible!

Dr. Cohen spoke about Be the Sun, Not the Salt at an upper management meeting of West Herr Automotive Group. A sprinkling of the comments we received were "Best meeting we ever had", "most inspiring meeting we ever had" and "most positive meeting we ever had". Our intent is to use this to inspire all 2200 employees and take our positive culture to the next level.

I have been a big supporter of Harry Cohen and his works for over twenty years. As a Lincoln dealer, I have witnessed the results of his remarkable compassion and dedication toward motivating people. He truly instills confidence with his words and actions. His recent book, "Be The Sun, Not the Salt"
embodies the positive energy he has conveyed his whole career. I purchased forty books for my dealerships in order to show my team some of the positive vibes I would love for them to feel. I am grateful for all of Harry's wisdom and motivation.

There is so much wisdom packed into this book! The concepts presented here are elegant (e.g. not designed by a complexifier) as they are easy to grasp and can have an immediate, positive impact on anyone willing to put them into practice -- both in business and in life. Well done Harry!
