The Go-Giver: A Little Story About a Powerful Business Idea
Most people just laugh when they hear that the secret to success is giving. Then again, most people are nowhere near as successful as they wish they were. ‘
The go-giver tells the story of an ambitious young man named joe who yearns for success. Joe is a true go-getter, though sometimes he feels as if the harder and faster he works, the further away his goals seem to be.
One day, desperate to land a key sale at the end of a bad quarter, he seeks advice from the enigmatic Pindar, a legendary consultant referred to by many devotees simply as the chairman. Over the next week, Pindar introduces joe to a series of successful ‘go-givers’ who teach him how to open himself up to the power of giving.
Joe learns that changing his focus from getting to giving – putting others’ interests first and continually adding value to their lives ultimately leads to unexpected results.
