I bet you want to know what “Customer Faithful” is all about! That’s what Rick Harris and I talk about in this podcast.

His passion, and the goal of his company, is to find out what really matters to peoplethe actual consumers or patients who are using your products or services. Much more than a new take on customer service, Customer Faithful enables businesses to be "faithful" to delivering what consumers really want and need. This is fascinating, innovative stuff.

Wow, pretty radical, right? And guess what, it works! To find out how and why, listen in.

Listen now as Gail Zugerman talks about growing older with gusto!

Like several of our podcasts, my interview with Gail Zugerman is with a woman who has reinvented herself several times as she has pursued her passions and her purpose. In our conversation, Gail and I talk about three things of great importance to us and to many of our listeners: 

  1. How can baby boomers rewire themselves to feel relevant?
  2. How do they look ahead to people 75+ for inspiration? 
  3. Why is the need to build social connections so important to them? 

These topics are already touching (or will touch) a great many of us, so I urge you to listen, learn and share!

Our podcast today is all about how to live successfully well into your elder years—whether you plan on living to be 100+ or just want to see life differently, whatever your age. My guest today is Dr. Cal J. Halvorsen, an assistant professor at the Boston College School of Social Work and an inaugural member of the Encore Public Voices Fellowship. This past May, Cal graduated with his PhD from the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis. Andy and I are very involved in Wash U and therefore very interested in Cal and his research. He's seeing that the years between 50 and 90 have become an entirely new phase in life where you can re-invent yourself and do things you might never have thought about before.

092: Mike Scott—Creating A Culture Of Accountability

Posted by Andrea Simon on Aug 13, 2018 6:00:00 AM

 Listen now as Mike Scott explains why accountability is so important to an organization's success!

One of the reasons I love our On The Brink podcasts is that they give me, and you, the opportunity to learn from thought leaders, CEOs and consultants who want to help you see, feel and think in new ways so you can actually soar. This often means taking a look at your company processes and determining if they need changing, something that my guest today, Mike Scott, specializes in. Mike's focus is accountability: why it matters and how it can really be the key to an organization's success. How do you help a person become more accountable? Mike tells us!
