019: Emily Ann Peterson, Conversation 1: Bare Naked Bravery

on January 30, 2018 in Podcast

I’ve been part of Emily’s community since she interviewed me on her podcast in June. I’ve seen support, growth, openness, and everything you’d expect from a group formed around bare naked bravery. Learning more about her just-released book, Bare Naked Bravery: How to Be Creatively Courageous, I see why I like her methods of developing bravery. They’re based on the same effective techniques I base mine on for developing leadership—active,[…] Keep reading →

018: Joshua Spodek: Enron Environmentalism

on January 27, 2018 in Podcast

I coined the term Enron Environmentalism to explain the gap between what people say they value about the environment and what they do. If you’re an American, you probably practice Enron Environmentalism. Sadly, it’s the opposite of self-awareness and integrity, as this episode of the podcast shows. Learning the opposite will improve your leadership, your life, and as a side effect, your environmental impact. Here are the articles I mention:[…] Keep reading →

016: Daniel Gefen, Conversation 1, Vulnerability and Openness

on January 22, 2018 in Audio, Podcast

Not often when two men chat on the internet do tears well up and they get choked up. Listen to the conversation. I loved this conversation for its being unscripted and unguarded. Daniel allowed himself to be vulnerable. He asked about posting this interview on his podcast because of the rawness of the emotion that came up. We laughed a lot too. My mistake I recorded this conversation early and[…] Keep reading →

014: Joshua Spodek: My friend’s anger and why I’m doing the podcast

on January 13, 2018 in Audio, Nature, Podcast

My friend told me this show angered him — hearing people act as if little changes were significant… not knowing not to get new plastic bags. Listen to the episode. I shared some of my thoughts on people making trivial changes and what motivates me. I expect I’ll share more personal thoughts on leadership and the environment as I develop my voice. Listen to the episode. Listen to the episode.

012: Judith Glaser, Conversation 2

on January 8, 2018 in Podcast

This conversation was fun and engaging since Judith is charismatic, experienced, and cheerful, even though it started solemnly, owing to a terrorist attack in Manhattan the day before. We covered politics a bit — now that I think of it, one of this podcast’s few forays there. We talked about leadership from many perspectives, including her storied experience, given her experience with globally known leaders (Donna Karan, etc) and top[…] Keep reading →

011: Tanner Gers, Conversation 3

on January 5, 2018 in Audio, Podcast

Tanner’s third conversation continues his project beyond just polluting less himself to influencing a store, in fact a whole grocery store chain. You can hear his growing enthusiasm, that the more he works on his project, the more he finds parts of it to love and act on. Listen to the conversation. Do you think because he’s a gold medal winner things come easier for him? On the contrary, things[…] Keep reading →
