Our thought leader of the day is Bob Glazer, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Acceleration Partners, a global partner marketing agency. Bob is passionate about providing capacity-building support from individuals to organizations for them to elevate their performances.

We talk about the core contents of his book, Elevate, which lays out the steps to push yourself beyond your limits and unlock your success. Part of unlocking your success is to clarify your values, which will then set you up for a rewarding future, regardless of the path you’ve chosen to take.
