On October 1, Bob was the guest presenter in a worldwide TweetChat hosted by Lolly Daskal of Lead From Within.

Lolly described Bob’s session as “fantastic,” with lots of “passion.” Thanks for hosting us, Lolly, and for your triple crown leadership!
"Bob, your book should be required reading for members of congress and anybody occupying The Oval Office."
Diego Gil, former colleague of Bob’s, in a Facebook comment
I think that the two great strengths of your book are 1) how "accessible" you make the ideas and principles, and 2) the power of the sheer volume of real world examples. By "accessible," I mean that you make the ideas both easy to understand and easy to make actionable. When you add the power of the interviews/real world examples, it makes for a book that goes beyond theory and becomes a resource that leaders not only can really use, but will. Bravo, Bob. Well done. This is a great book.
Joe Calloway, author of Be the Best at What Matters Most
