Nice guys finish first: An interview with Doug Sandler

Being a great leader is a strength many communication professionals strive for. What skills do you feel make a great leader? Being a good listener? Perhaps being polite and helpful? Or maybe being ruthless in edging out the competition? While some may believe that you have to be aggressive to take on a leadership role, “nice guy” skills actually allow you to successfully build lasting relationships and strengthen connections as a successful leader.

IABC Associate Editor Khyla Flores recently spoke with nationally recognized speaker and writer Doug Sandler about how the system of “invest, inspire and execute” can benefit communication professionals. Sandler provides some clear takeaways to help professionals develop great habits and even better relationships by being one of the “nice guys.”
