Episode #104: How to Be Present and Productive When There is Never Enough Time

A Conversation with 5 Gears co-author Jeremie Kubicek

jeremie kubicekToday’s guest is co-author of what you might call a “power” book.

If implemented, it has the power to literally transform the relationships of those you love the most and help you become a significant leader at work and in your community. If you can admit to the areas in your life where you tend to disconnect – personal, family, team, organization, and community – and if you are willing to deal with them. 

In their new book, 5 Gears: How to Be Present and Productive When There is Never Enough Time, Jeremie Kubicek and Steve Cockram suggest relational intelligence is the future competitive advantage for leaders. It is becoming the primary currency of leadership influence.
