“While I am not a teacher per se, I use the principles in The Go-Giver every day in interactions with my children, my patients, and my employees. As parents, doctors, and leaders, we are all first teachers. I am impressed with the way this Teacher’s Guide approaches the concepts of the book through critical thinking. [By igniting our youth and teaching our children through these concepts, we empower them to create positive change in the world while achieving great things.] This book is not just for teachers, it’s for everyone.”

— Kelli WinarksiB.A., D.C., Family First Chiropractic and Wellness Center, Columbia, Missouri

“I have known Randy Stelter for over forty years and have closely followed his extraordinary teaching and coaching career. In this Teacher’s Guide he makes the concepts in The Go-Giver become a reality in the students’ lives. I plan to teach The Go-Giver in my leadership class at the University of St. Francis, and I know this Guide will greatly enhance my teaching.”

— Pat SullivanProfessor and former Head Basketball Coach, University of St. Francis

“When the first edition of The Go-Giver was published in 2007, I started using it with my advanced leadership college group at our annual retreat. While this new Teacher’s Guide to The Go-Giver was originally developed for high school teachers, there are many pearls throughout that college professors can use with their students. The core concept discussion questions, quick writing and group discussion suggestions, and critical thinking questions all provide rich ideas for engaging college students around the concepts in The Go-Giver. The final project suggestions at the end of the Guide will stimulate possibilities for more in-depth integration of The Go-Giver concepts into our students’ everyday lives. As educators, we ultimately are called to improve the world through our students. The Go-Giver and this Teacher’s Guide will assist us in that noble calling!”

— Tim O. PetersonPh.D., Associate Dean and Professor of Management, North Dakota State University

“Reading The Go-Giver not only changed my thinking; as the first book selected to study in our city-wide book club, it changed the thinking of our entire community. By focusing on the principles contained in The Go-Giver with intentionality, positivity abounds.”

—Mayor Andy MackLongview, Texas

“The students in my Applied Business Development class read The Go-Giver as part of their curriculum and wrote remarkable stories about how they applied the principles taught in each chapter. They were so excited about the book that they talked about it at home, and their parents starting reading the book and doing the assignments along with them!”

— Melinda RangelDirector of Career and Technical Education, Newton High School, Kansas

The Go-Giver introduces itself as a business idea; what we find instead is an idea for all aspects of life. Lessons centered on concepts such as success, authenticity, and influence (among others) will engage students in important dialogue and reflective practice. For a generation often criticized for their selfishness, The Go-Giver and its accompanying curriculum serve to break through the noise and empower students to be their best version possible.”

— Casey J. CorneliusFounder and CEO, ForCollegeForLife

“In our seminar for juniors and seniors in the College of Business at Colorado State University we use The Go-Giver to help create in our students a sense of individual self-efficacy, personal leadership, and the understanding that they can lead immediately. Everything we do in the seminar fits the words from Lesson One of this Teacher’s Guide: ‘How can I model these lessons in my life?’”

— William ShusterProfessor of management, Colorado State University

The Go-Giver’s principles have helped me grow organizations that improve people’s lives. When I began teaching Entrepreneurship at Rochester Institute of Technology, it was the natural course textbook. I not only believe its meaning is a good way to live, I see the power daily in what it helps our students achieve.”

— Dave FuehrerPresident of Emerging Space

“It is exciting to see such an outstanding curriculum for such a great contemporary book. Bob Burg and John David Mann’s The Go-Giver applies to our youth today more than ever—and Randy Stelter’s experience in the classroom, on the fields, and as a leader in the educational system, gives this Guide substance and value. As an English teacher for the past fifteen years, I see unprecedented value in teaching my students these real-life lessons within their reading.”

— Aimee CostelloMorris Community High School, Illinois

“So many of our young people desire a vision for their lives. The Go Giver provides just that—great rules and values to put into place to ensure success from an early age. I can’t imagine a better way to pull students into a positive life view than studying The Go-Giver curriculum.”
