David Zweig is convinced that today’s constant focus on self-promotion is killing productivity and creativity. In his book Invisibles (Penguin) and on this episode of “Smashing the Plateau,” Zweig discusses how staying in the shadows is an oft overlooked common denominator in the success strategies of many of the world’s most prominent people.
How to get noticed without overtly seeking attention
The real reason your marketing isn’t working for you
The quiet power of listening
What happens when you give people their space
Pursuing collaboration, not competition
