Today we had the honor and privilege of speaking with author, teacher and podcaster David Burkus. We spoke about his books Friend of a Friend, Under New Management and The Myths of Creativity. We spoke about the ways he uses his background in organizational psychology to help instill channels of creativity in companies.
David is a best-selling author, a sought after speaker, and associate professor of leadership and innovation at Oral Roberts University. His newest book, Friend of a Friend, offers readers a new perspective on how to grow their networks and build key connections—one based on the science of human behavior, not rote networking advice. He’s delivered keynotes to the leaders of Fortune 500 companies and the future leaders of the United States Naval Academy. His TED talk has been viewed over 1.9 million times and he is a regular contributor to Harvard Business Review.
