Anytime I get to spend an hour with Bob Burg I walk away with new perspectives and a whole slew of new questions I ask myself and others around me. Today we talked about character, selling, leadership and, in the words of Col. Chris Hadfield, astronaut, how we can all becomes +1s versus -1 when we interact with others.
We also talk about holding your vision when things go sideways, how to turn the ship around and even have a discussion about ego all while bringing you wisdom from Bob's latest book with John David Mann, The Go-Giver Leader A Little Story About What Matters Most in Business
