THE COMMON GOOD with Holly Ransom

If there was one thing you think society should talk more about, what would it be?“The common good and how we can all be there for one another. I wish we would reflect on who's talking, who's being talked for and who's missing entirely.” Strap yourselves in because you are about to hear from one seriously outstanding human. I'm delighted to introduce you to the legendary Holly Ransom. Holly is a globally renowned content curator, powerful speaker and master interviewer Holly's belief is that if you walk past it, you tell the world it's okay. She was named one of Australia's 100 Most Influential Women by the Australian Financial Review, she has delivered a Peace Charter to the Dalai Lama, was Sir Richard Branson's nominee for Wired Magazine's ‘Smart List' of Future Game Changers to watch and was awarded the US Embassy's Eleanor Roosevelt Award for Leadership Excellence in 2019. Having interviewed the likes of Barack Obama, Malcolm Gladwell, Richard Branson, Billie Jean-King, Condoleezza Rice, Nobel Prize Winner Muhammad Yunus and the world's first humanoid robot Sophia, Holly fights complexity with curiosity, apathy with empowerment and fear with fact. Holly was identified early as a dynamic thought leader and asked to Co- Chair the G20 Youth Summit in 2014, the United Nations Coalition of Young Women Entrepreneurs in 2016 and was the youngest Director ever to be appointed to an Australian Football Club, the mighty Port Adelaide. An accomplished company director, Holly has compressed a power-packed career into a decade, spanning corporate, nonprofit and public sectors. She's the founder and CEO of consulting firm Emergent servicing some major global clients. She's a regular on The Drum and QandA; a proud champion for diversity and inclusion, as the Chair of Pride Cup Australia Holly's podcast ‘Coffee Pods' was named in the top ten business podcasts to listen to by the Sydney Morning Herald in 2018 and she's currently hosting the Energy Trailblazers podcast which I'm really enjoying. Holly's achievements feel never ending - she's a woman on a mission. As a Fulbright scholar and Harvard Kennedy School Class of '21 fellow, Holly is a recipient of the prestigious Anne Wexler Public Policy Scholarship, allowing her to action social and economic inclusion by connecting people with the decisions that affect their lives. Having released her book The Leading Edge, Holly helps people harness their own potential to lead by asking better questions, thinking beyond biased answers and building collective momentum for change. The Leading Edge is part of Holly's broader belief that we need to democratise leadership learning and break open elite leadership discourse to fire up every individual to catalyse change. Holly has been recognised as a LinkedIn Influencer and a must-read content producer by the Australian Institute of Company Directors. As founder and CEO of consulting firm Emergent, Holly has led real-world results with clients such as P&G, Microsoft, Virgin, Cisco and KPMG. Holly has also been a regular on the likes of The Drum and QandA. As a proud champion for diversity and inclusion, Holly is Chair of Pride Cup Australia, a non-profit organisation (and movement) devoted to challenging LGBTI+ discrimination within sporting clubs - and create welcoming and supportive environments for LGBTI participation and fans. A two-time Ironwoman, Holly loves to cook, dance and sing... despite her complete lack of talent at all three. You'd think that you'd feel a bit inadequate hanging out with Holly -but that's just the thing - she's such a beautiful person, incredibly humble & her curiosity about the world just radiates from her sparkly eyes. Holly is one of the reasons I found my voice with creating the Wabi Sabi Series so I'm absolutely thrilled to get to sit down and chat with her, it was such a delight.

Think about how much of our lives are spent communicating behind computer screens these days, and then compare that with most of human history when we were communicating face to face using body language. It's such a shift that it's perhaps not unexpected so many of us are bad at it. That's why we wanted to speak to Erica Dhawan. Erica is a globally recognized leadership expert and keynote speaker helping organizations and leaders innovate faster and further, together. Her writing has appeared in dozens of publications, including Fast Company and Harvard Business Review. She has an MPA from Harvard Kennedy School, MBA from MIT Sloan, and BS from The Wharton School—so you could say she knows a thing or two about a thing or two. Her new book, Digital Body Language: How to Build Trust & Connection No Matter the Distance, came out this past May, and I wanted to talk to her about her research and advice for us as digital body language keeps growing in importance. Her book's been praised by everyone from Seth Godin to Sheryl Sandberg to Billie Jean King, so I'm happy we get the chance to learn from her.As always, we welcome your feedback.

Quotes: --“This is definitely not sport-specific. Racial bias has long been documented in men's sports. There is less documentation, but no less convincing evidence, that it happens in women's sports as well. It can manifests in a number of different ways. It can be about the attention athletes get, it can be about the kind of attention they get, and it can be about the language we use when we talk about athletes...Absolutely, racial bias is pervasive in and across sports, and in women's sports." --“Title IX has fixed things unequally when it comes to girls. Title IX has been excellent for white, middle-upper class girls like me. It has been a lot less effective at creating equity for Black girls, Latinx girls, girls of color broadly, and girls from low income communities. The gender gaps that exist in some communities are still quite pervasive…Title IX, at its best, ought to create a more equitable society for all girls, and it hasn't done that yet.” Follow Risa on Twitter: @RisaLovesSports Follow Social Sport: Website, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Newsletter --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/socialsport/support

It was that training that unlocked her potential to become the best player in the world. 9:30 - In light of mental health which has been so important to athletes today, we've come a long way from when Martina faced one of the hardest challenges of her life, leaving her home country and her parents behind. 12:30 - Martina says one of the most disappointing parts of her life is people constantly trying to undercut her, saying her dedication and hard work was just the results of steroids, or she was just some kind of robot. 14:30 - Martina describes what made Chris Evert such a great athlete, who would have excelled at any sport because of her mental fortitude. 16:45 - At the age of 12, Martina lived through the Prague Spring, when the Soviet Union felt threatened against an independant Czechoslovakia and sent soldiers in to prevent any form of democracy to develop. 21:30 - When Martina was told by her government that her tennis career was making her grow too close to a Western type of lifestyle, she knew she would have to defect in fear of never being able to leave again. 23:30 - Martina's first US tournament was where she resides today in Fort Lauderdale and the first thing she remembers was the big cars, and the coconuts growing on the trees. Everything was so just eye-opening and all she wanted to do was share what she saw with her family. 32:00 - It's been 40 years since Martina was outed. It was something she had to be quiet about as she was awaiting to get her US citizenship. In light of Billie Jean King's outing there was pressure from Tennis not to say anything in fear of losing sponsors. 41:30 - Martina thought about what life would be like with Twitter and now we have a generation that grew up not knowing what life was like without social media.

From the book: Wisdom by Andrew Zuckerman “Tennis taught me so many lessons in life. One of the things it taught me is that every ball that comes to me, I have to make a decision. I have to accept responsibility for the consequences every time I hit a ball.  It also taught me about delayed gratification. No matter how you look or how much money you have, you still have to learn your craft. You have to hit a lot of balls. You have to train. There are disciplines of life that you learn from tennis or other sports. Another thing is that you learn to adapt. I have two sayings, champions adjust and pressure is a privilege. When you're playing a tennis match you can't say stop I want to do another take or can I play that over. That's the way sports are. They're very real that way. They teach you lessons in life but the most important one is accepting responsibility. You have to make a decision, and live with the consequence, that's what tennis does with every ball that comes to me. And I just use my experience in tennis in everyday life now and it's fabulous. It's been a great journey to learn those lessons." Wanting vs deciding: Decide that you're going to get something done today, Catabolic vs Anabolic energy The energy of responsibility is how you get out of anxiety. Ask yourself: What am I not taking responsibility for now, which is freaking me out? You have to train. "You can't buy self-esteem you need to earn it and you need to earn it from the toughest person on the planet, yourself." Champions adjust. It's not the strongest who will survive, but who can best adapt to change. Pressure is a privilege.

When Gertrude Ederle became the first woman to swim the English Channel in 1926, she beat the record of every man who'd attempted it before her—by two hours. And she did it in a two-piece bathing suit that she'd fashioned herself, eschewing the bulky wool dress, stockings, and shoes expected to be worn by women swimmers for modesty's sake. Before Title IX's 1972 passage, Ederle, and pioneering sportswomen from Mildred Ella “Babe” Didrikson Zaharias to Wilma Rudolph to Billie Jean King, began the work of breaking down cultural norms around sex and sport, as well as race and class—while making history in the process. In what ways has the world changed since women were denied the opportunity to compete because of their biology? What forgotten feats by trailblazers, on and off the turf, have been relegated to the footnotes of history? And how have earlier fights for gender equality laid the groundwork for today's debates over equal pay, anti-trans legislation, and other issues? LPGA and World Golf Halls of Fame member Amy Alcott, ASU sports historian Victoria Jackson, and sports attorney Jill Pilgrim, who has represented the LPGA and USA Track and Field, visited Zócalo to discuss how Title IX transformed sports for women, and its unfinished work leveling the playing field when it comes to everything from equal pay to equal opportunity.

In what way did Bjorn Borg and Jimmy Connors become unexpected stars of the event? And how did Kodes end up lifting the trophy?

July 8th 2010, for many this represents the dawning of the Player Empowerment Era.   If you don't remember that date, and why should you unless you live in Cleveland, that is the date “Lebron: The Decision” aired on ESPN. Lebron James announcing his intent to take his talents to South Beach in an ESPN special that was probably 10 minutes but felt like 20 hours.  Forgetting how mind-numbingly awful that show was, it did put a stake in the ground for all athletes moving forward to say “we can take control of our careers and pull the levers of our own lives.”  It's clear how monumental this event was, based primarily on the anger it caused in then NBA commissioner David Stern.  Stern was a very smart man and savvy businessman, and according to may I've spoken to who knew him, he loved being in control of the league and its players.  Stern pushed ESPN to cancel The Decision, former ESPN executive John Skipper detailed after the fact that he believed "[Stern didn't like it] probably because the player was in charge here."  And there it is, the dawning of the player empowerment era.   Well, that is if that's how you define player empowerment.   I think I'd take a different view.   If empowerment is the authority given to someone to do something, I think athletes have been empowered far before Lebron James walked the Earth.   Jesse Owens earning 4 gold medals at the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games as Hitler watched outraged.  Jackie Robinson  Althea Gibson  Billie Jean King  Bill Russell  Muhammad Ali  They all took back their power, leveraged their abilities into change moments. It wasn't choosing what team to play for, it was choosing to change the world.   I'm not trying to be belligerent, clearly today's athletes are using their voices and power toward good causes and are effecting change in the world. Nothing has interested me more in the last 10 years than the Player Tribune, the ultimate platform for athletes to show they are more than an athlete.   Athletes today have a louder megaphone and more tools in their toolbelt than ever before. And they are using them all.   One of those tools many athletes leverage are Athlete Marketer, people trained and dedicated to help build the profile and brand of today's top athletes. One of my favorites, is Jennifer Keene, VP of Athlete and Property Marketing at Octagon, Jennifer Keene.  For long time listeners of this show, Jennifer has been here before and knocked it out of the park. I wanted to have her back on to discuss many of the emerging sports marketing trends in 2021...and she was kind enough to join me despite the fact she is moving from New York to LA! So when you see videos of the show, she wanted me to make it clear she is moving, not a hoarder with boxes everywhere.       Here she is, my friend Jennifer Keene ready to discuss sports marketing trends in 2021.
