Episode 086: Seth Godin – How To Become Indispensable & Build Your Tribe

Seth Godin is a legend in the marketing and leadership world.  He truly understands the importance of “deciding to” and having an intense focus on continuous improvement.  Learning more about the most important job we (parents) will ever have is imperative to me.  Seth shares detailed, research backed evidence to how we can better lead and “cause a ruckus” as he would say.  We are extremely fortunate to have Seth share her knowledge with us, the loyal listeners of The Learning Leader Show.

Seth Godin is the author of 18 books that have been bestsellers around the world and have been translated into more than 35 languages. He writes about the post-industrial revolution, the way ideas spread, marketing, quitting, leadership and most of all, changing everything. You might be familiar with his books Linchpin, Tribes, The Dip and Purple Cow.

In addition to his writing and speaking, Seth founded both Yoyodyne and Squidoo. His blog (which you can find by typing “seth” into Google) is one of the most popular in the world.

He was recently inducted into the Direct Marketing Hall of Fame, one of three chosen for this honor in 2013.  His newest book, What To Do When It’s Your Turn, is already a bestseller.
