154: Benjamin Mathes—Recovering The Lost Art Of Listening

Posted by Andrea Simon on Sep 30, 2019 6:00:00 AM

Learn what the incredible power of listening can do!

I received a copy of Benjamin Mathes’ book, Short Paragraphs on Listening,” as a gift after a speech I gave recently in Los Angeles. Not knowing much about Ben, I was curious about why an actor was teaching others about how to listen, even asking them to post signs on street corners encouraging strangers to come speak with them. But that is Ben’s magic. In our podcast, we dig deep into Ben’s own life experiences and the need to listen to others if we are going to find ourselves. As you listen to Ben, you too will realize that listening is far more important than most of us ever thought. Perhaps you'll find yourself pausing, listening and enjoying others in totally new ways. That's what happened to me...hopefully to you too. Enjoy, and please share.

151: Carsten Tams—Changing The Way We Manage Change

Posted by Andrea Simon on Sep 9, 2019 6:00:00 AM

Hear how to really bring about real change!

Carsten Tams and I have a lot in common. We both work with organizations that need or want to change. And, we both know the challenges of helping people transform their company, unit, department, or just themselves. Human brains hate to change, even when they're facing a crisis or anticipating one coming soon. What to do? Carsten's process, deeply embedded in humanism and the power of human agency, helps organizations change. In our talk, you'll hear about his own experiences, research and case studies. Ready to change? Listen in and let us lend a hand.

Whether you are a nonprofit, a for-profit, or just really interested in building better businesses, Sarah Olivieri has something you are going to enjoy in this podcast. As she worked with numerous nonprofits, she realized that they are often well-meaning but slightly disorganized. Don’t misread me here. These are wonderful organizations. The leadership and their staff are not dysfunctional but just in need of a little more focus, structure and process tools for growing their passion and their purpose. Sarah created those tools and they are transforming the organizations with which she works. We share her approach so you can think about your own organization. Maybe you too need to see it with fresh eyes. Enjoy this podcast, learn and share!

133: Allen Adamson—How Relevant Are You?

Posted by Andrea Simon on May 13, 2019 6:00:00 AM

Allen Adamson explains how to successfully stay ahead of change!

As I finish many of my Vistage CEO workshops, I marvel at how these CEOs run their businesses while also trying to push them forward, find new markets and stay relevant. Often, their clients are moving fast and furiously, leaving vendors or support teams far behind. The times they are a-changin,' as Bob Dylan sang to us a long time ago. And, they are continuing to change. The skills to adapt are often missing among the leadership of companies, men and women who know how to run their operations today but not how to adapt them for tomorrow. This conundrum is why I was so excited to have branding expert Allen Adamson as my guest for this podcast. Enjoy!
