How to Get Ahead By Giving to Others

Bob Burg, author of The Go-Giver, joins me to dissect the difference between being a go-getter, a go-giver, and a go-taker.

The Go-Giver is one of the top 5 business books I recommend. When we are driven by metrics and goals, it is easy to lose sight of the importance of relationships. All things being equal, people will do business with those they know, like, and trust. If it is a close race, a personal relationship or connection will win out, because people know it is in their best interest to work with someone they can rely on.

The good news is, as Bob so eloquently shares, there is no division or dichotomy between being focused on people and having goals. People don’t buy from you because of your metrics, but your metrics will help you set a path to helping as many people as possible. A go-giver is someone who is laser-focused on providing immense value to others.
