My guest this week, Bob Burg, has been speaking, writing and inspiring people for over 30 years. His books have sold over a million copies. His groundbreaking book, The Go-Giver, came out a decade ago. It started a real movement and has become a phenomenon. The American Management Association named Bob one of the 30 Most Influential Leaders and he is one of Inc. Magazine’s 100 Great Leadership Speakers. During our conversation, he shares the inspiration behind his new book, The Go-Giver Influencer, the 4th in the Go-Giver series. This book is all about how to communicate tactfully without compromising your views and the essence of influence.
My book, Bring Your Whole Self to Work: How Vulnerability Unlocks Creativity, Connection and Performance comes out May 1st, but you can pre-order it now and receive special bonuses.
