Having a podcast means I get to meet a lot of amazing people. Some I connect with – and they connect with me – and some not so much. When interviewing Keenan, and talking to him on the phone, it became quickly clear to me we would be lifelong connections. Keenan’s straight forward approach likely rankles some C-suite executives, but his advice is spot on, and his intentions are crystal clear: to get your butt moving in the right direction with advice you never learned. Hence the title of his fantastic book Not Taught, which is the fastest 90 minute read I’ve ever had that will take time to implement and achieve. Warning: until you put all of Not Taught into action, you may want to hide from your C-suite leader, as they’ll think you’re going out on your own or looking for a new job – though that is NOT what this book is about.
Not Taught is all about how the rules of the 20th century no longer apply – and how we can pivot into the next century and succeed because we embrace these sooner than our competition. Meaty, useful stuff.
This episode went way too fast. We covered as much as we could. And we will do this again – soon. You’ll want to find Keenan at http://asalesguy.com right away – and start learning from his ASAP.
