“True genius, in strategy or anywhere, lies in self-control, self-mastery, presence of mind, and fluidity of thought.” – Robert Greene 

When it comes to the study of human nature, power dynamics and social intelligence, there’s perhaps no one more knowledgeable than Robert Greene. 

Collectively, his 7 (soon to be 8) books have sold more than 20 million copies, and along the way he’s consulted countless world leaders, athletes, politicians and celebrities. 

By scouring human history to understand patterns of behavior, he’s developed the unique ability to take incredibly complex and rich subject matter and whittle it down to key learnings that are relatable, tactical and applicable.  

In this interview, we ask Robert what role communication, self-awareness and social intelligence played in not only his own life but also the historical figures he has dedicated his life to studying. 

We cover:

  1. Tips for navigating the messiness of the human condition 
  2. Behind the scenes of his new book, The Law of The Sublime 
  3. Applying higher level strategy in sports and business 
  4. The critical communication skill every coach must prioritize 
  5. How our obsession with technology impacts our communication
