John Garrett is a catalyst for corporate culture change. He’s on a mission to help teams break down barriers, foster unity and strengthen bonds.
No matter where you are in your career, it’s important to differentiate yourself to achieve your goals. The future professional doesn’t define expertise simply in college degrees and certifications. They have passions outside of work that enhance their ability to develop stronger levels of trust with colleagues and clients. Through hilarious stories and extensive research, John encourages everyone to share their passions because they are the very heart of your organization’s culture.
What’s Your “And”? is a compelling wake-up call that rejects the conventional wisdom that professionals have to conform to a specific stereotype to be successful at work. In fact, defying the norm by sharing your outside-of-work passions makes you a better professional while also making your organization more equipped to attract and retain talent and clients. After years of research based on his own professional path—a successful CPA and stand-up comedian—and his podcast interviews with hundreds of top professionals, John Garrett lays out the future of professionalism—a future where each of us brings our whole self to work.
If you care about others at work and find out about their outside-of-work passions, you’ll create a winning team that everyone wants to be a part of. I’m excited for you to read this book to learn how small adjustments make a world of difference.
