Goodreads asked Rodd Wagner:

How do you get inspired to write?

Rodd Wagner Many things inspire me to write. It depends on the chapter and what needs to be said. Sometimes it's a powerful piece of research I can't wait to share. Sometimes it's people doing something so goofy I can't help but call it out. Sometimes It's a great story of a leader or manager who has something to teach the rest of us. All of it goes back to my initial journalism training on looking for what's newsworthy. I try to see what I'm thinking of writing through the eyes of those who buy my books. If I think they'll find it insightful, I'm excited to write it.
