Dan's Leadership Podcast Ep. 044 | Leader of Influence

Episode 044 of my leadership podcast is a great interview with an engaging author, Bob Burg.

Our discussion is packed with compelling stories to help you learn how to be a leader of influence. 
Bob Burg and I have similar passionsempowering leaders to pursue the next best versions of themselves.

Here's a little about Bob Burg:BurgHeadshotBalcony

  • He's named one of the 30 Most Influential Leaders by The American Management Association. 
  • He's an avid supporter and defender of the free society, free enterprise, and free people (believing that the amount of money one makes is directly proportional to how many people one serves).
  • He co-authored The Go-Giver, a bestselling business leadership parable, and then a follow-up parable, The Go-Giver Leader—both books challenge the long standing paradigm of being a go-getter and other conventional ideas about business success.

Bob and co-author, John David Mann, are back with another compelling story in the Go-Giver series: THE GO-GIVER INFLUENCER: A Little Story about a Persuasive Idea tackles the paradox of achieving what you want by focusing on the other person’s interests and needs—not in a way that is self-sacrificial but rather in a way where all parties benefit greatly.
