Learning this art and becoming great is the call to action of our times. Today’s guest and his work will help you do just that. He’s been called the “most influential management theorist living.”

In 1995, he founded a management lab to study what makes businesses great. His lab even advised a young entrepreneur named Jeff Bezos, who would build upon his research to help grow Amazon.
