The Go-Giver is a modern-day business parable that reinforces the idea that giving is better than receiving. Joe, a go-getter desperate to land a key sale at the end of a bad quarter, seeks the advice of Pindar, a legendary consultant. Pindar introduces Joe to a five “go-givers” (a restaurateur, a CEO, a financial adviser, a real estate broker, and the “Connector” who brought them all together), who teach Joe the Five Laws of Stratospheric Success and help him open himself up to the power of giving. Joe learns that changing his focus from getting to giving-putting others’ interests first and continually adding value to their lives-ultimately leads to unexpected returns. The term “go-giver” has become shorthand for a defining set of values embraced by hundreds of thousands of people around the world.
