If there is one word that could redefine work to better express the purpose we want from it and the contribution we want to make, it's "build"

Dr. Badal is responsible for designing and implementing entrepreneurship programs that enable startup and small business growth.

Sangeeta is the Inventor of a unique psychometric assessment- Builder Profie10 (BP10) to assess the entrepreneurial potential in an individual. Which is available when you buy the book written by Jim Clifton, Chairman of Gallup.

I'm your host, Peter Clayton. Our guest today in this Career Strategy Channel Podcast on TotalPicture, Sangeeta Badal.

 A little background before we get started, because of this podcast, I'm sent many books to review. Very few rise to the category of transformative. This one does. The BP10 Assessment and companion worksheets will help you chart your career strategy and business relationships. Joining me on this podcast is my business partner, Larry Cummings, the Chief Connector at HR Tech Alliance. Both Larry and I have taken the BP10 Assessment, which you'll hear about in detail on this podcast.

Through Gallup's world-class research, they have identified the 10 talents of successful entrepreneurs - or to use their term, builders. and here's why. If there is one word that could redefine work to better express the purpose we want from it and the contribution we want to make, it's "build". Whether you dream up tomorrow's big innovation, run a thriving small business or start the next international nonprofit, isn't building a better way for people to create value for our economy and find security and fulfillment? In addition to buying this book for yourself, if you have a family member graduating from high school or college, I can't think of a more timely, useful, and important gift than Born to Build.
