Got Your Attention?

got.attention.inddTo put it simply, Sam Horn is the most brilliant idea-extractor I’ve ever met.

Every conversation I’ve ever had with her goes like this:

  1. She asks me a laser-focused question about what I’m working on.
  2. I stammer out an attempt at an answer while…
  3. She pulls out her notebook and starts jotting

All followed by more questions (from her), more stammering (from me), more jotting (by her) for several rounds.

And at the end, out pops some incredibly insightful, practical, and fantastic ideas from her and crystal clarity for me.

She’s a freakin’ savant, is what she is.

So, when Sam publishes a book, I’m going to pay extra special attention.

And I suggest you do the same.

Got Your Attention? is Sam’s latest, and with a subtitle like, “How to Create Intrigue and Connect with Anyone,” we all should snap this up ASAP.

For a little taste of Sam Horn’s wisdom, check out this post on her blog called, Don’t Tell and Sell. Show and Ask.

And if you ever get to meet Sam, watch out for that notebook.

It could change your life.

And, Finally…The Radical Leap is an Audiobook

I’m thrilled to officially announce that The Radical Leap: A Personal Lesson in Extreme Leadership is finally available on audio.

Lots of folks have been asking for this for years, now, so it’s been a long time a-coming.

Even better, this recording marks the arrival of Leap’s 10th Anniversary Edition, which includes a new self assessment.

We’ve decided to forgo the CDs-in-a-box format and stick with the strictly digital route.

You’ll find it at the most formidable digital haunts, that is Amazon, Audible, and iTunes.

Now you can drive, go for a walk, work out at the gym, or fly on a plane while I read you this story in my mellifluous tones.

I hope you enjoy the listening as much as I enjoyed recording it for you.
