After The Go-Giver’s publication back in 2008, Bob and John went on to apply the Go-Giver idea — that is, the more you give, the more you have — to sales (Go-Givers Sell More), leadership (The Go-Giver Leader), and education (A Teacher’s Guide to The Go-Giver). The natural question was, “What’s next?” In these highly polarized times, they thought it might be helpful to explore a Go-Giver approach to influence and the role it plays in our capacity for empathy, civil discourse, and the ability to see another’s perspective.

At its heart, The Go-Giver Influencer is a story about what it takes to bridge differences, to settle disputes and defang conflicts, to find common ground where there appear to be only irreconcilably polarized positions. (And, yes, even to negotiate business dealings.) It is also about what it takes to be someone whom others trust and look to for sound guidance, clear judgment, and evenhanded wisdom in times of challenge.

We discuss:

  • What is an “influencer”? And what is a go-giver influencer?
  • What exactly is influence? Is it something that just comes to some people naturally, like charisma, or can anyone develop it? And if so, how?
  • How can Millennials find balance in giving?
