“Should I or shouldn’t I go the co-author route with my next (or first) book?”

That’s a question I get asked all the time.

I’ve successfully co-authored five books–virtually with Craig Badings in Australia for Thought Leadership Tweet, plus a business leader in India–and three books with clients here in the U.S. Every experience has been a joy.

But that’s not the case for everyone.

In this recording I speak with Mike Figliuolo, founder and managing director of thoughtLEADERS, LLC, a professional services firm specializing in leadership development. Mike’s new book, Lead Inside the Boxis co-authored with Victor Prince. His first, One Piece of Paperwas written alone.

How does Mike compare and contrast the two experiences? More to the point, what can you learn from Mike to ensure co-authorship is the right route for you?

  1. Great interview. All spot on. I could not have had a better co-author for my first book. It was really fun to read this. It is the debrief that Mike and I have been way too busy to have. Thanks for posting.

    • Delighted to hear it, Victor. Mike had so many wonderful things to say about your collaboration. I wish you both every success with the book — and more to come 🙂 Liz
