The first interview mentioning my upcoming book

Joan Sotkin invited me back to her podcast, Prosperity Place. We mostly spoke about environmental leadership, but it was the first public mentioning of my book coming out in a couple months.

From the podcast page, the highlights:

  • People think that acting for the environment is a sacrifice when in fact it’s fun.
  • Regarding the environment, leadership by example doesn’t work.
  • Josh manages to only throw out one small back of garbage a year! We talk about this.
  • He meets people where they are in order to encourage them to change their habits.
  • Community motivates culture change.
  • Josh aims for measurable results while people enjoy the process.
  • The question is, what skills do you develop as you move towards supporting the environment.
  • If you don’t do the little things, you’ll never get to the big things.
  • Josh’s mental model of Amazon is a big, polluting machine.
  • Acting on your values creates community.
  • Recycling is only a little better than throwing things out.
  • Companies are now talking to Josh about helping them become more environmentally aware.
  • When companies start changing there’s a sense of liberation.
  • We can’t change the past, what can we do now?
  • Use SMART goals.

Here’s my first conversation with Joan, Using Emotions as a Leadership Essential, from September 8, 2017.
