My new book is on the near, near horizon. It’s called How to Work with (Almost) Anyone, and if you interact with other human beings in your life, this might be a helpful book for you. It goes live on June 27th, and I’ve got some terrific pre-order bonuses, which you can find linked below.

The audiobook is ready to go, as well. So this episode isn’t just a monologue from me, I’ve invited some of my friends to share a short story of what they’ve learned from their best – or their worst – relationships. In this one, you’ll hear from Pamay Bassey, the Chief Learning Officer at Kraft Heinz.

Michael reads from the opening chapter of his newest book, ‘How to Work with (Almost) Anyone.’ [reading begins at 1:00]

Hear him discuss:

  • “Every relationship becomes sub-optimal at some point … but every working relationship can be better.” [2:44]
  • “Best possible relationship doesn’t mean that there are never difficult moments, but rather, there’s commitment and capacity to fix the damage and carry on.” [7:46]
  • The role of the keystone conversation: “The keystone conversation gives you a deeper understanding of the person across the table from you.” [8:40]
  • Pamay Bassey tells the story of her BPR. [19:49]
