In this episode of Future Squared, I welcome back DAVID BURKUS, named one of the world’s top business thought leaders by Thinkers50 last year.
His forthcoming book, FRIEND OF A FRIEND, offers readers a new perspective on how to grow their networks and build key connections—one based on the science of human behavior, not rote networking advice. He is also the author of UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT and THE MYTHS OF CREATIVITY. David is a regular contributor to Harvard Business Review and his work has been featured in Fast Company, the Financial Times, Inc magazine, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, and CBS This Morning.
David’s innovative views on leadership have earned him invitations to speak to leaders from a variety of organizations. He’s delivered keynote speeches and workshops for Fortune 500 companies such as Microsoft, Google, and Stryker and governmental and military leaders at the U.S. Naval Academy and Naval Postgraduate School. His TED talk has been viewed over 1.7 million times.
When he’s not speaking or writing, David is in the classroom. He is associate professor of leadership and innovation at Oral Roberts University where he was recently named one of the nation’s “Top 40 Under 40 Professors Who Inspire.”
I enjoyed reconnecting with David and learned a lot, some of which I applied the day after the interview with positive results.
With that, welcome back to the show... 220 episodes later, the one and only, David Burkus.
