The Go-Giver tells the story of an ambitious young man named Joe who yearns for success but is frustrated in his efforts. Over the course of one week, through encounters with an enigmatic consultant named Pindar and a series of Pindar’s friends, Joe learns that changing his focus from getting to giving—putting others’ interests first and continually adding value to their lives—ultimately leads to unexpected returns. Imparted with wit and grace, The Go-Giver is a classic bestseller that brings to life the old proverb “Give and you shall receive.”

Originally intended for adult readers, The Go-Giver touched a chord in readers from all walks of life—including avid young readers, from middle school through college age. Shortly after its 2007 publication the book was picked up by Randy Stelter, a high school English teacher and athletic director in northwest Indiana, and Randy has taken his school’s senior class through the book every year since. Soon other educators began adopting the book as part of their curricula at every level from high school through graduate school.

Now Randy has teamed up with Go-Giver authors Bob Burg and John David Mann to create this Teacher’s Guide, a detailed lesson plan that includes vocabulary lists, assigned readings, questions for comprehension and critical thinking, extensive topics for class discussion, and a set of final projects designed to deepen students’ understanding of the book and to ground its lessons in their own everyday experience. Designed as a high school curriculum, the Guide’s content and approach can also be readily adapted for use by college professors in higher-education settings.

Review:

“As educators, our highest purpose is to help prepare our students to provide greater value to their world and, as a result, live lives of success and significance. The lessons and narrative in The Go-Giver offer students of all ages a wonderful foundation for genuine success.” —Nido Qubein, president, High Point University, High Point NC

“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.” —Chris Mack, board president, Longview Independent School District, Longview, Texas

“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 Costello, Morris Community High School, Morris, Illinois

“When I began teaching Entrepreneurship at Rochester Institute of Technology, The Go-Giver 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 Fuehrer, president, Emerging Space

“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. Cornelius, founder and CEO, ForCollegeForLife

“The students in my Applied Business Development class read The Go-Giver 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 Rangel, director of career and technical education, Newton High School, Newton, Kansas

“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 was developed for high school teachers, there are many pearls throughout that college professors can use with their students. 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. Peterson, Ph.D., associate dean and professor of management, North Dakota State University

“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. —William Shuster, MBA, professor of management, Colorado State University

“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 Sullivan, professor and former head basketball coach, University of St. Francis

“I am impressed with the way this Teacher’s Guide approaches the concepts of the book through critical thinking. While 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. This book is not just for teachers, it’s for everyone.” —Kelli Winarksi, B.A., D.C., Family First Chiropractic and Wellness Center, Columbia, Missouri
