Your long-term success depends on winning the attention of others. If your boss doesn’t notice your work, how will you get a promotion? If your team doesn’t listen to you, how can you lead effectively? And if you can’t capture the attention of clients, how does your business or career survive?

And I drew on my years of experience with startups, both as co-Editor of Mashable and a venture capitalist.
I learned that there are seven triggers that call people to attention.
