How to Lead Through Giving

What is Servant Leadership

In this episode, Matt talks to best-selling author Bob Burg about servant leadership. Bob is the author of the Go-Giver which has sold more than 975,000 copies worldwide. Matt and Bob covered the below topics, and much more:

  • The Five Laws of Success – What are they and how do you apply them to your business?
  • How do you become more valuable to your team?
  • Putting others first is how you create real influence
  • Why authenticity matters for leaders and how to execute
  • Giving more is the key to getting more from your team
  • Lift others up and make them the hero
  • How do we use the Five Laws as leaders of organizations?

The question they answered without saying it is; what is servant leadership? The answer, as Bob put it is; you take the focus off of yourself and put it on others.
