authors

We are Geoff, Randy, and Alan.

We are business leaders, bestselling authors, and social entrepreneurs. We are not academics. We are not retired CEOs, and this is not a memoir. We are not self-proclaimed gurus or TV evangelists.

We are three guys who love the topic of helping leaders amplify their positive impact on the world. That is why we write books.
