Dov Baron brings the best out of you. See his interview of me.

on March 11, 2018 in Audio, Leadership

Dov Baron—bestselling author, leadership coach (and more), named by Inc. as one of the Top 100 Leadership Speakers and host of Full Monty Leadership—is probably the most dynamic, authentic, and colorful guest I’ve had on my podcast. To illustrate his authenticity, he took the greatest personal challenge to live by his environmental values—to consider getting rid of his car.

031: Frances Hesselbein, Conversation 1: Where you can make the greatest difference

on March 1, 2018 in Audio, Podcast

Having worked with many people and generations, Frances sees great hope in millennials. She points to research that they are like the so-called Greatest Generation, who fought World War II and then helped rebuild the world.

We didn’t create these systems but we can act to create new ones based on new beliefs, such as accepting having enough, or considering the results of our actions[…] Keep reading →

025: David Biello, Conversation 1: We Can Do This

on February 19, 2018 in Audio, Podcast

David Biello is one of the few people I’ve met who understands environmental issues, doesn’t complain or vent doom and gloom. Instead he approaches with a simple, but responsible and thoughtful perspective. I met David after reading a review of his book, The Unnatural World: The Race to Remake Civilization in Earth’s Newest Age, saying that David says: we already have the money and technology to make profound environmental change;[…] Keep reading →

on February 15, 2018 in Audio, Choosing/Decision-Making, Freedom, Podcast

Who doesn’t have a dream car? If you can afford it, especially if you’ve aspired to it your whole life, isn’t owning and driving your dream car one of the great joys and well-earned accomplishments in life? What if you found something better? What if what you liked better was not having the car? Does the idea of getting rid of one of your highest value sound crazy? That’s the[…] Keep reading →
