083: Mike Pierce—Leading At 90 Below Zero

Posted by Andrea Simon on Jun 18, 2018 6:00:00 AM

 Listen now as Mike Pierce tells us what makes a great leader!

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Mike Pierce (Antarctic Mike), a highly engaging business speaker who, when he's not giving keynote presentations, can often be found at the bottom of the world. What's so interesting about Mike is that he looks at leadership in a very unique way—through the lens of Antarctic history—and draws powerful connections between polar expeditions and the real world of business. I know you'll really enjoy Antarctic Mike!

082: Karen Guzicki and Mike Schuler—The Power of Reconciliation

Posted by Andrea Simon on Jun 11, 2018 6:00:00 AM

 Listen now as Karen Guzicki and Mike Schuler teach us how to create harmonious teams!

As a corporate anthropologistI found my recent podcast with Karen Guzicki and Mike Schuler fascinating on many levels. As consultants in the Executive and Organizational Development space, they focus on how people's behaviors influence their roles in work teams. (Right up my alley.) And what they've found after 40 years of working with team dynamics is that when a rogue player tries to highjack the group, a process of reconciliation brings harmony to the team and gets everyone back on track. Good stuff! You'll enjoy it.

075: Ask Andi—Blue Ocean Strategy® Step 1

Posted by Andrea Simon on May 4, 2018 6:00:00 AM

 Listen now to my podcast about how to find your Blue Ocean Strategy! 

Today, I want to talk about Blue Ocean Strategy, the methodology and book created by Renée Mauborgne and W. Chan Kim. This year they launched a new book called “Blue Ocean Shift,” an excellent 2nd version of the Blue Ocean Strategy approach to help you see, feel and think in new ways about your business in these rapidly-changing times. And so it seems very timely for me to go through the steps of a Blue Ocean Strategy with you so you can learn how to apply it to your own business, whether it's doing well or not so well and you’re wondering what's coming next.
