It struck me recently that you may associate influence with two things: money or charisma. You may think you need one or both to be a convincing leader who influences others and makes things happen.
Bob Burg and I had a conversation about this the other day. You may know Bob's name - he's The Wall Street Journal bestselling co-author (with John David Mann) of The Go-Giver and Go-Givers Sell More and author of Endless Referrals. I was inspired by the leadership insights Bob shared and I believe you will be, too. Luckily, he agreed to let me tape our call - it's available as a free, quick MP3 podcast which you can download here.
A few take-aways from my interview with Bob may surprise you:
You'll discover how to apply these insights (and more) immediately when you listen to Bob's interview. You'll also hear why Stephen M.R. Covey calls Bob "engaging" and "powerful." And I can't wait until you hear Bob's voice. It will hit you like a thunderbolt - I was a bit intimidated by the power of his pipes, even though I've been a broadcaster for 20 years!
Bob’s book is a great resource for any leader who wants to have impact. I encourage you to pick up a copy of The Go-Giver on Amazon.com here:
