Featured Book "The Lords of Strategy" by Walter Keichel

Episode Summary

David Nour reading from Walter Keichel’s ‘The Lords of Strategy’ and discussing how relationships facilitate growth in life.

We network, and we’re LinkedIn connected … and at the same time, we’re not known, and we’re not seen. We’re followed, and we’re following on social media … and still, we’re lonely.  How do we find, build and nurture actual relationships? ‘Curve Benders,’ David Nour’s latest book, underscores how significant relationships are in our lives. In this conversation, David digs into how to build the strategic relationships that help you grow in all areas of your life.

David reads from Walter Keichel’s ‘The Lords of Strategy.’ [reading begins at 16:20]

We discuss:

  • “The only way to remain relevant is through a commitment to personal reinvention.” [23:30]
  • “Think less about where you can find curve benders and more about how you can become one.” [25:10]
  • The role of exile in change. [26:33]
  • Finding freedom within the constraints of expectation. [28:44]
  • The entrepreneurial mindset. [31:21]
