Discussion guide from my conversation with Geoff Blades:
1. Business and life (and campaigns) are all about transformational leaps.
2. Business, life, and politics is a game. Why don’t people understand this? You have play. Most don’t.
3. Trump understands this is about influence.
4. FIVE KEY LESSONS FROM TRUMP:
A. Stay on point.
B. Be more skilled.
C. Powerful messaging.
D. Be yourself.
E. Play the part.
5. Geoff explains how to apply the lessons above. And yes, he explains how you can both be yourself AND play the part!
6. What are the specific skills Trump used to win the GOP nomination?
7. Can Trump win it all? It’s a new game with old rules.
