148: Todd Palmer—How Can You Succeed by Failing Forward?

Posted by Andrea Simon on Aug 26, 2019 6:00:00 AM

Learn how to turn a failure into a phenomenal success!

Todd Palmer loves the same things we do: how to help entrepreneurs and business leaders do better. As he says on his website, he helps business leaders Get S#!t Done. But how does he do this, differently than others might? And what can you and I learn from his approach, his own experiences, and his failures and successes? Turns out, a lot. In our conversation today, Todd and I talk about entrepreneurs getting stuck or stalled, then turning around and finding ways to build successful businesses. Sound familiar? (Hint: my book, "On the Brink.") Lots to learn here!

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.

057: Ask Andi series—What's Hot and What's Not

Posted by Andrea Simon on Feb 2, 2018 6:00:00 AM

Listen now to my podcast about today's trends and how you need to adapt now!     

As I go around the country doing workshops and keynote speeches and working with clients, I’ve begun to observe overall cultural changes that are going on, both in American society and across the world. So I thought today I would talk about a question I received recently about what do I see that's hot and what do I see that's not, and how these trends can help business leaders see, feel and think about their companies in new ways. A lot to learn here and react to. Enjoy!

Posted by Andrea Simon on Dec 26, 2017 6:00:00 AM

 Listen now as Steve Harper explains the power of The Ripple Effect!

I bet you want to know what Rippling is? Or maybe even how to Ripple? You are going to love this interview with Steve Harper. Our conversation is all about how, growing up shy and introverted, he learned to build relationships with people. It wasn't easy. But he came upon this idea about Rippling and it changed his entire life. So what is Rippling? The concept that one connection leads to the next to the next, and then ripples well past where it began, changing people's lives.
