Two years ago, when The Go-Giver first came out, I was invited by one Tim Peterson, PhD, to come to New York to speak to a group of students at a Fellowship program at Texas A&M. We had a blast.
In the meantime, Tim has relocated, from far south to far north: he is now Associate Dean at the North Dakota State University, where among other things he has been tasked with developing a leadership program.
He asked if I would come do it again. And this morning, I had the distinct pleasure of giving a talk on the principles of The Go-Giver to a most attentive, appreciative and wonderful group of college students from Fargo, North Dakota.
What an inspiring location! The good folks at SteelCase, Inc., the office supply people, donated their location right off Columbus Circle. Located stratospherically at the top of the building, the room we met in has a stunning view of Central Park (you can just barely see it in this pre-talk photo).
The kids were fantastic. They asked great questions and had light burning in their eyes.
If this is the face of the future, the future looks stratospherically good.
