140: Tristan White—A Great Place To Work Starts With A Great Culture

Posted by Andrea Simon on Jul 1, 2019 6:00:00 AM

 Tristan White explains why culture is everything!

What if you started on your life's journey only to find out that it wasn’t really what you wanted to do? Perhaps you thought you'd become a teacher, until you realized you were never going to love it. Or you thought engineering was your calling, until you found out you weren't very good at math. Today's interviewee, Tristan White, thought he was going to be a physiotherapist working with sports stars helping them stay healthy and agile, until he actually started doing it. Not loving it, he pivoted, and the rest, as he will tell you, is history. We can all learn from Tristan's story!

134: Roger Dooley—Eliminating "Friction" So Your Organization Can Dominate Its Industry

Posted by Andrea Simon on May 20, 2019 6:00:00 AM

 Roger Dooley explains how your business can run smoothly and more powerfully!

I brought Roger Dooley back to our podcast because he is publishing his next book, Friction: The Untapped Force that Can Be Your Most Powerful Advantagewhich might just be your next “must read." Think about it: In 2016, $4.6 trillion of merchandise was left in abandoned e-commerce shopping carts. Every year, the U.S. economy loses $3 trillion in productivity due to excess bureaucracy. Red tape and over-complicated licenses have enabled China’s GDP to exceed India’s by $82 trillion in just three decades. According to Roger, these statistics illustrate the real and growing threat of “friction,” which he defines as the unnecessary expenditure of time, effort or money in performing a task. There's so much we can learn from him...be sure to listen in!

 Richard Sheridan shares how to build a workplace full of joy!

A little over a year ago, in January 2018, I had the pleasure, or should I say “joy,” of speaking with Richard Sheridan and several of his staff about the Joy he has infused into his business, Menlo Innovations. After leading a workshop on culture change at a conference hosted by Richard, I've grown very fond of him and his approach to life, not just business. He now has a new book out, Chief Joy Officer,” a powerful follow-up to his first book, “Joy, Inc.” In his book and in our podcast, Richard shares his approach to leadership. Definitely listen, learn and share!

Its mission? To disrupt unconscious bias and create inclusive and diverse workplaces where talent can thrive. Listen!

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!
