As it’s book launch day, I picked one of the deep-dive chapters titled How to Amplify What’s Good to share with you, and towards the end you’ll hear from Leadership Strategist, author, and my good friend, Dan Pontefract.

Michael reads from Chapter 21 of his newest book, ‘How to Work with (Almost) Anyone.’ [reading begins at 1:33]

Hear us discuss:

  • Exercise 1 – Archetypes. [3:05]
  • Exercise 2 – The Boasting Friend: “Even if we have some inkling of what makes us great, we are unwilling to name it out loud.” [5:25]
  • “When you see yourself through another’s eyes, you often see things you may not have noticed before.” [7:44]
  • Dan Pontefract talks about his worst working relationship: “Being punctual is not poisonous; being present is actually perfect.” [8:02]
