Editor’s Note: This is a continuation of our core conversation on “Great Connections Lead to Great Ideas.” Yesterday, Sarah Robinson encouraged us not to create in a vacuum. Today, Michael Bungay Stanier shows us how his network helps him bring projects to fruition.
Today I’m launching a book that saves lives. It’s got 62 people cool people – people you know, like Pam Slim, Jonathan Fields, Les McKeown, Danielle LaPorte (all part of this great series, by the way) and more – sharing their best tips and insights on how to do more Great Work. $20 of every book sold goes to Malaria No More to buy a mosquito net and support their life-saving work in Africa.
Making connections and starting conversations was the key to bringing this project to fruition, and in this video I share the two most important conversations I started, and the power of being bold, being personable and being generous.
