Today’s guest has been talking about Social Business before it even had a name and views social media as an excellent way to tear down silos, build strong communities, and connect people face-to-face.
He is the founder of a digital strategy agency, called From the Future. As a recognized expert strategist, he helps his clients see frameworks rather than supplying them with templates, scripts, and tactics.
He engages audiences as a keynote speaker, cutting through BS and not pulling punches. Everything he talks about puts an intense focus on business applications designed to ensure that everyone wins.
He is also the host of Shareable, a popular podcast about people and technology. He explores the pivotal moments in people’s lives where a person or technology had a profound impact on them, forever shifting the direction of their career and life.
His forthcoming book, which discusses his loveable leader framework, is called “The Loveable Leader.”
Please join me in welcoming Jeff Gibbard.

In this episode we discuss:
- his thoughts on leadership: “Leadership at its very core is just the ability for someone to follow you. It’s an amoral framework at its core. What makes a great leader is how you see yourself in the context of the people you work with.”
- advice he received from his dad that helped him when he was thinking about careers.
- his goals as a leader, including providing an inclusive environment that supports people exactly as they are.
- how everything for him, in terms of building networks, starts and ends with generosity.
- his desire to help connect people to each other and his belief that all efforts will be reciprocal in some manner.
- how he values networking and what his habits are.

Relationship-Based Business Strategist
Are you ready to create a Relationship-Based Business Plan that will help you achieve greater impact (and income)?
- You want to have a greater impact and increased income. The problem is that there are so many options for how to build your business that you can feel stuck, overwhelmed, and like you're running out of time.
- The reason options are overwhelming is that you're looking at them as a series of disconnected steps when — to make the most of your time — you need a strategy that connects only the most important and highest impact ones.
- Why? Because you know it's true that if you try to do everything, you will accomplish nothing. This means, to achieve your goal, you have to invest in a strategy to put time on your side.
- How? This program will help you find the clarity to determine what is the right next step for your business. A book? A podcast? An online course? Masterminds? Speaking on bigger stages?
- Together we will design a 12-month Relationship-Based Business Plan that will allow you to stack your successes to create momentum and leverage your limited time.
- Read about this program and then schedule a complimentary 60-minute session to see if it's a good fit. www.robbiesamuels.com/more
