Steven M. Covey said about Steve and Rob Shallenberger’s work and book:

“The 12 Principles are crucial to the success of any leader, in any organization, in any industry!”

Steve and Rob run Becoming Your Best, and Steve interviewed me in their podcast. He got to some of my formative experiences and the views that emerged from them.

Becoming Your Best

They introduced the interview as follows:

If you are going to become a good pianist it takes practice.

If you want to be a good athlete it takes practice.

The same goes for becoming a good leader.

Joshua Spodek earned such praise as “Best and Brightest” (Esquire Magazine’s Genius Issue), “Astrophysicist turned new media whiz” (NBC), and “Rocket Scientist” (Forbes Magazine and ABC News) with success in such diverse fields as science, invention, entrepreneurship, art, leadership, coaching, and education.
