Posted by Andrea Simon on Mar 18, 2019 6:00:00 AM

 Michael Alan Tate explains how to create successful career move strategies!

I had a wonderful podcast interview with Michael Alan Tate. You will enjoy listening to him, too. What was of such interest? The challenges of change, of course, something that we at SAMC spend a lot of time working on with clients. Michael has been an executive consultant and career coach for more than 20 years. He is also the founder and president of On the Same Page Consulting, as well as an inspiring speaker and author. His first book, “Design a Life that Works,” teaches how to balance business, career, family and personal values in an individual strategic life plan. His latest book, "The White Shirt," gives you the tools to create successful career move strategies. This is one podcast you shouldn't miss—we can all learn so much from Michael!

125: Jared Tate—Creating DigiByte, Cryptocurrency With the Best Speed, Ease and Security

Posted by Andrea Simon on Mar 14, 2019 6:00:00 AM

Jared Tate shares how he is powerfully disrupting currency with blockchain!

You might just be a real fan of Jared Tate. So many in the DigiByte (DGB) world are. Jared founded DigiBYte in 2013, then the next year, launched DGB's genesis block to create a better cryptocurrency. Recognizing that blockchain is the wave of the future (or more accurately, the tsunami), disrupting all kinds of markets and creating new ones, we did a podcast with Jared in June 2018. So much has happened since then that we did another one just now, and Jared was terrific, again. Clearly, blockchain and cryptocurrency are two phenomena you should be watching carefully, and listening to our podcast with Jared is an important step in that direction.

 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!

 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!
