Bob regularly addresses audiences ranging in size from 50 to 16,000 — sharing the platform with notables including today’s top thought leaders, broadcast personalities, Olympic athletes and political leaders including a former United States President.

Although for years he was best known for his bookEndless Referrals, over the past few years it’s his business parable, The Go-Giver (coauthored with John David Mann) that has captured the imagination of his readers.

A third book coauthored by Bob and John David Mann is also a business parable; this one focusing on influence and leadership. Entitled, It’s Not About You, it shows how focusing on others is the best way to obtain stratospheric success in your own life and business.

Bob is an advocate, supporter and defender of the Free Enterprise system, believing that the amount of money one makes is directly proportional to how many people they serve.

The Five somewhatcounter-intuitive Laws Joe learns from this kind and caring man will make a huge difference in both his personal and professional success.

The definitive guide to turning casual contacts into solid sales opportunities.

It's Not About You
In this inspirational parable, we meet Ben, a young manager charged with persuading five hundred employees of a struggling chair manufacturer to agree to a merger as a way out of their financial woes. Facing what seems like an impossible uphill climb, Ben seeks the advice of Claire, an old friend, who introduces him to an eccentric elderly lady known simply as Aunt Elle. 

Over the course of the week leading up to the crucial vote, Aunt Elle teaches Ben about the power of influence and positive persuasion. Ben also meets with each of the manufacturer’s four top executives in an effort to sway them to his side, and instead comes away from each meeting with a different leadership lesson. But it’s not until Ben reflects on his own experiences that he learns the critical principle so many people in positions of power fail to grasp: it’s not about me, it’s about you.
