Service and Influence
Bob Burg is a first-class speaker, author, and friend. His books have sold hundreds of thousands of copies: Endless Referrals, The Go-Giver: A Little Story About a Powerful Business Idea, and Adversaries into Allies: Win People Over Without Manipulation or Coercion.
Recently, I had the opportunity to hear Bob speak. His platform skills were on full display. I watched him mesmerize the audience with his energy and command of the stage. He inspired everyone to make a difference with his message of service and influence.
After his terrific presentation, I had the opportunity to talk with Bob about serving others and influence. In this video, we discuss:
- The importance of service and giving to others
- How to change a corporate culture
- How to get commitment rather than compliance
- How to reset a frame
- Why his books resonate with so many
If you are looking for an inspirational gift that you will want to pass on to others, I highly recommend The Go-Giver. His latest book, Adversaries into Allies: Win People Over Without Manipulation or Coercion, may be his most important work as it compiles success principles and a lifetime of learning.
