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?

Fresh out of undergrad, Christos Shepherd started – and later sold – Air Thalassa, a Greek airline. He went on to help governments and entrepreneurs in Africa to start airlines of their own. And during a stint at JetBlue, he launched award-winning products like Mint, America’s first-ever lie-flat experience.

Born in Jamaica but given a Greek name, raised in London but now living in New York, married to a Nigerian and learning Chinese (very slowly), Christos’ story spans the world. He fronted his own TV show in China, wrote for The Economist, and last year got an MBA from Stanford.

These days, Christos is a co-founder at Campfire, a revolutionary audio app that pays users to ask great questions to their favorite experts, celebrities, and podcasters. Besides eliciting and sharing intimate audio stories, users can donate their earnings to their favorite charities. On Campfire, social media does social good.

Campfire is even better for podcasters. They (and their favorite charities) get paid to answer listeners’ questions. And the app’s Silicon Valley technology eliminates trolls and repetitive questions, so that engaging with audiences becomes a breeze. All this in one world-changing app. Get.campfire.fm.
