REACH Interview Series: Sydney Finkelstein

The Reach Interview Series is an informal dialogue between me and respected thought leaders around the theme of my new book, Reach: A New Strategy to Help You Step Outside Your Comfort Zone, Rise to the Challenge and Build Confidence.

You might know Sydney Finkelstein as the author of Superbosses, consultant, speaker and executive coach extraordinaire, and accomplished Dartmouth University professor.  But you probably didn’t know that he started his career as a terrified 23 year old thrust into a teaching experience in Canada way outside his comfort zone… or that if he weren’t a world renowned thought leader, he might very well consider running a Montreal bagel factory.  For all this and more, have a listen!


AVAILABLE NOW
