Great Connections Help You Bring Projects To Fruition
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.

More about Michael: Michael Bungay Stanier is the Senior Partner of Box of Crayons, a company that helps people and organizations do less Good Work and more Great Work. He's written a number of books, the best known of which is Do More Great Work and today is the launch of his latest Great Work Project: End Malaria, a book that saves lives by raising money for Malaria No More.
Tomorrow's voice in this core conversation will come to us from Todd Kashdan, who will remind us why it's important that we be open to role reversals.
