339: Mark Samuel—Are Your Teams Trying To Find The Winning Game?

Posted by Andrea Simon on Nov 28, 2022 6:00:00 AM

Hear why it's so crucial for success to build effective teams

My guest today is a remarkable individual, Mark Samuel, who's now written seven business books. I interviewed Mark back in June of 2019 and thought he had such a powerful message about how to get people to change, even when they really don't want to, that I had him back. Today's podcast is about his most recent book, Reimagine Teams: The Missing Piece in Team Building to Achieve Breakthrough Results. Our discussion focuses on the vital role of accountability, which makes teams work or fail. With over 30 years' experience in the business world, Mark is a transformative leader, having helped hundreds of companies overcome stagnation, transform their businesses, and eliminate toxic work cultures to increase profits, morale and customer experience. Does your culture need an overhaul? Be sure to listen in!

336: Maureen Berkner Boyt—Yes, Diversity And Inclusion Can Happen But Only If You Work At It

Posted by Andrea Simon on Nov 7, 2022 6:00:00 AM

Learn what you can do to bring about real change

Here we are in November already and I'm having such a good time re-sharing with you some of my favorite On The Brink podcasts. I'm bringing to you conversations I've had over the past five years with amazing women entrepreneurs, authors, change agents and overall trailblazers who have challenged me to think in new ways. And as a culture change expert, that's what I'm all about: helping you too see, feel and think in new ways. So today I bring you Maureen "Mo" Berkner Boyt, founder of her company The Moxie Exchange and author of Rock Your Moxie: Power Moves for Women Leading the Way. This podcast was a follow-up to one we did in January 2018, in which we dug into research Mo initiated with CEOs around the country to see how they were implementing changes (or not) to increase both the diversity of their workforce and the inclusion of that diverse workforce. Is diversity real or just a concept? Listen in, then share!

333: Marcella Bremer—A Positive Culture Is The Key To An Organization's Success

Posted by Andrea Simon on Oct 17, 2022 6:00:00 AM

Hear how you can be the change your organization needs 

Can you build better businesses by creating positive cultures in which people can work with joy instead of dread? Yes! That's the premise of Marcella Bremer's book, Developing a Positive Culture where People and Performance Thrive, which focuses on helping organizations achieve more effective, productive cultures. I interviewed Marcella for this podcast back in 2018 and what she said about how you can be a force for change in your organization even if you're not a CEO or boss or manager was so groundbreaking that I want to share our conversation with you again, in my salute to amazing women throughout the fall. Marcella also leads a Positive Culture Academy where you learn how to apply her principles. Every working person needs to hear this!

313: Melissa Copeland—Customers Want Great Experiences. How Can You Deliver Extraordinary Ones?

Posted by Andrea Simon on May 2, 2022 6:00:00 AM

Hear why a great customer experience means everything

I am always excited to share a great woman’s story with you, our audience. Melissa Copeland is a great woman to know. She had a wonderful career, as so many women have had, only to discover that flying all over the world was not great for her family, or even herself. She pivoted and launched Blue Orbit Consulting, which allowed her to refocus her attention on clients closer to home and on projects dear to her heart—like improving customer interactions for her customers. Our conversations roam all around the challenges she, and I, see among our clients as their customers are changing, service expectations have dramatically shifted (where fast means right now), and staffing has become an uphill climb, to say the least. What to do? Call Melissa, who brings her expertise in organizational transitions and interpersonal growth and development to the task at hand. Clients love her approach, and I think you will as well. Enjoy.

202: Andrea Simon—Now Is No Time To Be Afraid Of This Blurry Future

Posted by Andrea Simon on May 26, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Learn how to reinvent your reality and embrace change

As we work with our clients during this pandemic, we're noticing a recurring theme. They've figured out how to deal with living at home, working at home and being at home. But now they're beginning to be anxious about what's coming next. It's strange, isn't it, that without a clear vision of the future, it's very hard to live today. In this podcast, I talk about these feelings that so many of us are having, and how this crisis is an excellent time for you to innovate, reinvent your reality, and start doing the things you've been trying to do for a long time. Please listen, learn and share.
