9781682610008: What Made Me Who I Am

Starting a business is a wonderfully naïve venture.  Only a fortunate few will survive--and very few of those who thrive will have something special to say about failure, success, and leadership.  
 
Bernie Swain is one of those few very fortunate people.  He quit his job in 1980 to start a lecture agency with his wife and a friend.  By the end of their first rocky year--just as his savings were running out--Swain's first revenues trickled in.  He began signing every speaker with a handshake; this proved to be the hallmark of trust that helped accelerate the company's growth. Years later, his roster of speakers would be the greatest in history since America's first agency represented a host of notables such as Mark Twain, Susan B. Anthony, and Frederick Douglass.  
The best of Swain's fortunes turned out to be the speakers themselves because these remarkable leaders had become his personal friends.  What Made Me Who I Am captures the leadership transformations of 34 of those friends--from Doris Kearns Goodwin to Colin Powell, Terry Bradshaw to Tom Brokaw, and Tony Blair to Dave Barry.  This assembly of people defines a generation. What were their most powerful influences?  Defining moments?   Decisions that contributed the most to their character and accomplishments?   
Swain captures answers to these questions and more in an inspiring, practical collection of true-life stories for leaders today. What Made Me Who I Am is also a terrific gift book for graduates and others who are just starting out in life.

Review:

“When a legend of an industry writes a book, you take notice. Bernie Swain, founder of the nation’s top lecture agency, recounts the watershed moments of a number of well-known clients. What Made Me Who I Am is an insightful guide to what has empowered a generation of leaders. It’s also full of fresh, moving stories that will help you navigate your life and challenges—no matter where or who you are.”  (Amy Cuddy, Harvard Business School professor and New York Times bestselling author of Presence)

“Imagine having a backstage pass to the most interesting stages of the past three decades. Bernie Swain didn’t just have that seat; he built the stage. In this inspiring book, he convinced many of the great leaders of our time to share the key turning points in their lives. It’s like 34 autobiographies in one volume—full of delightful stories, surprising insights, and practical wisdom.” (Adam Grant, Wharton professor and New York Times bestselling author of Originals and Give and Take)

“Bernie Swain’s What Made Me Who I Am is a treasure. By revealing the core motivations of some of our most powerful leaders, the book challenges all of us to push back our own frontiers and become better versions of ourselves. Prepare to be surprised, inspired, and—most of all—changed.” (Daniel H. Pink, New York Times bestselling author of Drive, A Whole New Mind, and To Sell Is Human)

“Rarely do we get intimate profiles of so many outstanding leaders as we do in What Made Me Who I Am. Author Bernie Swain, a legend in the speaking world, reveals his clients’ most personal leadership struggles alongside his own. Leaders at every level will see themselves in his frank, true-to-life tales about risk, tough times, and resilience. You’ll also get some powerful inspiration and practical advice that could make a real difference for the rest of your life.” (Stephen M. R. Covey, New York Times bestselling author of The Speed of Trust and Smart Trust)

“The stories in What Made Me Who I Am are both heartfelt and inspiring. The trust and confidence these famous names have in Bernie Swain is obvious on every page because they reveal to him intimate details of their lives that give real insight into how they became who they are today. Plus it is a fast and fun read.” (Maureen Orth, award-winning journalist and special correspondent for Vanity Fair)

“History is composed of the stories we tell; their turning points often have the power to inspire. From the personal trials of some of today’s most iconic leaders, Bernie Swain has created an inspiring gem.” (Ken Burns, renowned filmmaker including Civil War and Baseball)

“Everyone starts somewhere, and some of the most successful people of our times started in circumstances that were light years away from the lofty peaks they reached. Bernie Swain’s book shares the stories of some of the successful individuals with whom he’s worked—and the pivotal moments that proved life changing. You’ll look at the events in your own life differently after reading about the lives of these leaders.”  (Deborah Norville, anchor of Inside Edition and New York Times bestselling author of Thank You Power)

“We all have moments when we decide our fate—when we face down a problem, for example, or take a big risk. What Made Me Who I Am focuses on those inflection points for 34 notable people. You learn what has made all the difference in each of their lives and how these influences continue to drive them forward. This is an important book with great meaning for the rising generation.” (Eugene Robinson, Pulitzer Prize–winning columnist for the Washington Post and MSNBC analyst)

“I love What Made Me Who I Am simply because Bernie Swain understands what moves people. You’ll see yourself in every story, and you’ll be inspired to take charge of your problems and opportunities in fresh, new ways.”  (Katie Couric, award-winning journalist and New York Times bestselling author)

“I’ve always believed that the most effective leaders are as generous as they are ambitious. They are at their best when they bring about the best in everyone they encounter. This book confirms that belief. In a true act of generosity, Bernie Swain has persuaded many of the remarkable thinkers, statesmen, and executives with whom he has worked to share the secrets of their success. The stories are larger than life, but their lessons may change your life. What Made Me Who I Am will help make you what you hope to become.” (William C. Taylor, Fast Company cofounder and New York Times bestselling author including Simply Brilliant)

Descripción Permuted Press, United States, 2016. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Powerful and moving stories of inspiration, adversity, and triumph from the Washington Speakers Bureau. Starting a business is a wonderfully naive venture. Only a fortunate few will survive--and very few of those who thrive will have something special to say about failure, success, and leadership. Bernie Swain is one of those few very fortunate people. He quit his job in 1980 to start a lecture agency with his wife and a friend. By the end of their first rocky year--just as his savings were running out--Swain s first revenues trickled in. He began signing every speaker on a handshake; this proved to be the hallmark of trust that helped accelerate the company s growth. Years later, his roster of speakers would be the greatest in history since America s first agency represented a host of notables such as Mark Twain, Susan B. Anthony, and Frederick Douglass. The firm continues its practice of signing speakers on the strength on a handshake. The best of Swain s fortunes turned out to be the speakers themselves because these remarkable leaders had become his friends. What Made Me Who I Am captures the leadership transformations of 34 of those friends--from Doris Kearns Goodwin to Colin Powell, Terry Bradshaw to Tom Brokaw, and Tony Blair to Dave Barry. This assembly of people defines a generation. What were their most powerful influences? Defining moments? Decisions that contributed the most to their character and accomplishments? Swain captures answers to these questions and more in an inspiring, practical collection of true-life stories for leaders today.
