Posted by Andrea Simon on Jul 3, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Learn why it's not what you think, it's what your brain does

I bet you have often wondered why you hear people say one thing and then do the opposite. Or, perhaps you know you should do one thing but then find yourself going in another direction. To find answers, behavioral economists study why people are so predictably irrational, which by the way, includes each of us. In this podcast, I speak with a behavioral economist whom you are going to love listening to, Melina Palmer. Afterward, you won't think of your brain the same way!

201: Karen Dietz—Your Story Is Your Secret to Amazing Success

Posted by Andrea Simon on May 21, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Hear why stories are the secret to your success

As humans, we are all storytellers. That’s what people do. Our brains take the information they receive and create stories to make sense of it. By the time you are in your late 20s, you pretty much have created your own story, and changing that “reality” is very difficult. You only "see" what your brain tells you fits with your own story. And usually, you are the hero in that story. When a friend introduced me to Karen Dietz, a pioneer in business storytelling, I was thrilled at the opportunity to bring her to you. Karen shares with us her wisdom, and also her own story. Listen in, then think about your own story and ask yourself if it needs changing for today's times?

Posted by Andrea Simon on May 7, 2020 7:35:00 AM

Learn how to maximize your identity and your brand

When I launched my book in 2017, I was privileged to work with Sarah Wilson on the publicity. She is a very talented PR advisor and together we had great success in promoting the book, me, and the work that we do at Simon Associates Management Consultants (SAMC). While I no longer work with Sarah, as she and her communications organization have expanded in scope and the world of PR has changed, it seemed timely to bring her onto our podcast. She has some great ideas about how authors and others can leverage influencers, social media and targeted events to build their identities and create better value for themselves and their customers. There are important lessons here for all of us. Listen in!

Learn how today's crisis affects women and gender roles

We have a serious concern about the impact of the pandemic on women in the workplace. So, we invited Andie Kramer and Al Harris back to share with us their perspectives. On April 1st, Andie had a new article published in Forbes entitled, "Why Stay-At-Home Orders Might Be Good For Gender Equality."  Or, if China is a leading indicator, it might be good for divorces. While we have been called futurists, this is not a time for us to offer anything that sounds like “certainty.” But we do know that these times are changing, fast, and we will have to as well. In this podcast, Andie, Al and I talk about how people change, or resist change. Especially now, please listen in.
