Jonathan Raymond "Good Authority"

Jonathan Raymond author of "Good Authority" past CEO and Chief Brand Officer at EMyth (the company behind the famous book), where I had the opportunity to lead the transformation of a global business and brand. Jonathan has worked in clean energy, e-commerce, and helped to found a non-profit that teaches mindfulness to at-risk youth. Refound is my attempt to bring it all together — to share the best of what I’ve learned in a way you can apply. If you’re like most leaders I know, you had no intention of becoming a people manager. It turns out that the moment you have people working for you everything changes. It’s not just that you need a new set of skills. It’s that you have to learn to become a new version of yourself. Now you’re the one who has to figure out how to motivate people, how to get people to communicate professionally, how to collaborate with teammates instead of devolving into gossip and politics. And, more than anything else, it’s now your job to crack the code on how to get people to take risks instead of playing it safe. (Not to mention trying to do all that while navigating the organizational and cultural issues that were there long before you arrived). "Required reading for anyone who wants to do more than merely manage people. Good Authority is a modern classic, and it will redefine what it means to be the boss." - Seth Godin More on Jonathan Raymond & Good Authority: http://refound.com More on the host; Dov Baron. http://FullMontyLeadership.com
