What’s Your “And”?

Unlock the Person Within the Professional

John Garrett

How sharing your personal passions improves work performance, builds culture, and strengthens relationships with colleagues and clients (and bosses, too).

Do you have expertise that’s not being utilized at work?
Do you want to stand out from the competition?
Do you want to attract and retain top talent?

What’s Your “And”? is a compelling wake-up call that rejects the conventional wisdom that professionals have to conform to a specific stereotype to be successful at work. In fact, defying the norm by sharing your outside-of-work passions makes you a better professional while also making your organization more equipped to attract and retain talent and clients. After years of research based on his own professional path—a successful CPA and stand-up comedian—and his podcast interviews with hundreds of top professionals, John Garrett lays out the future of professionalism—a future where each of us brings our whole self to work.


“If you care about others at work and find out about their outside-of-work passions, you’ll create a winning team that everyone wants to be a part of. I’m excited for you to read this book to learn how small adjustments make a world of difference.”
