This week it is our privilege to introduce you to one of the nicest, most down-to-earth guys that we know. Despite his mile-long resume and the extensive list of books that he has authored or co-authored, it’s his humble spirit that impresses us the most.

Meet Chip Bell

Chip is the author or co-author of twenty books, including several award-winners like Wired and Dangerous (with John Patterson), Magnetic Service (with Bilijack Bell), and Managers as Mentors (with Marshall Goldsmith). Although still enjoying the re-release excitement of the revised and expanded edition of Managers as Mentors, Chip is ahead of the game and planning to release The 9 1/2 Principles of Innovative Service (book #20) on August 20, 2013.

In fact, he wants to hear your story. All you have to do is buy a copy of the book  and share your story and Chip will send a copy of Managers as Mentors to the person who made the most impact on you, along with a letter that highlights the difference they’ve made in your life. How’s that for a deal? There are a few things he needs from you before he sends the book, but you can read all about it on his blog. Don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity to honor the mentors in your life!
