Recent Podcast Interview On The Writing Of One of My Earlier Books

Top Business Leaders Podcast

With host Dan Janal

Top Business Leaders Podcast host Dan Janal’s interviews are content rich. He gets at the questions his listeners want to know the answers to — how do I write a book that resonates with readers? It was my distinct pleasure to be a guest on one of Dan’s recent podcasts.

Listen in as we discuss the making of one of my previous books – It’s Good To Be King. The discussion centered around the fable format that I chose to use to bring out the leadership points that I wanted to share. Anyone familiar with the book knows it was nominated as a “best business book” by Management Issues magazine and received terrific endorsements by both executive coaching guru Marshall Goldsmith and 14X business author John Baldoni.

Key takeaways include:

  • When done right, a fable is a terrific way to present ideas that may otherwise be lost in a different kind of book format.
  • There are over 60 easy to consume leadership tips offered throughout the book. These are all captured for quick consumption in the chapter summary sections appearing throughout the book.


By the way, my 6th book: Indispensable: Build and Lead A Company Customers Can’t Live Without (Humanix, February 2021) is available now. It provides dozens of examples from industry-leading companies like Amazon, BMW and Apple to reinforce its key points. Each chapter helps you to learn how visionary business leaders like Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk and Jamie Dimon are already applying these ideas in today’s business world.
