Rank #1: #067 - Daniel Pink - Multiple NYT Bestselling Author
Daniel Pink is a multiple-author including a number of NYT bestselling books.
His combination of thorough research on a topic and a style of writing that is engaging and entertaining makes his books a great read.
Books like "Drive" where he explains the concept Motivation 2.0 or "To Sell is Human" where he explains why almost all of us are in sales and why extroverts are not the best salespeople or "A Whole New Mind" which is our today"s VUCA world even more relevant are books I loved and love reading.

Rank #4: #064 - Bella Zanesco - High-Performance Strategist
Why are we laughing and giggling together you wonder?
Bella and I are both Kite-surfing fans though she is doing that on a completely different level.
Bella became also world champion in sailing at the age of 38!
On the flip side, she knows how it is to get through depression and how to reinvent yourself over a period of 3 to 5 years.
There is so much in this episode.
Did you know that one key to high-performance is JOY? No wonder we are laughing together and have a lot of joy during the session.
But 65% of the 3000+ by Bella interviewed executives don't want to show up at work on Monday. And 70% don't know what to do about their career. These are shocking numbers - and there are more of these numbers.
But Bella also has specific tips and suggestions and shares the 4S (actually 5S) model in the episode.
PS: The side noise goes away after six minutes. Sorry about that.More about Bella Zanesco
