REACH Interview Series: David Burkus

The Reach Interview Series is an informal dialogue between Andy Molinsky and respected thought leaders about the challenges of stepping outside your comfort zone, especially in the process of developing yourself as a leader.

David Burkus is a best-selling author, an award-winning podcaster, and associate professor of leadership and innovation at Oral Roberts University. His latest book, Under New Management, challenges the traditional and widely accepted principles of business management and proves that they are outdated, outmoded, or simply don’t work — and reveals what does. In our interview, David talks about situations he’s faced outside his comfort zone during his professional career, how he has navigated them, and what advice he has for young people interested in leadership.
