Charlotte Cornfield is a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Toronto. Like many other musicians she spent most of 2020 writing and eventually recording a new album. The new release Highs in the Minuses (out Oct. 29 co/released on Polyvinyl and Double Double Whammy Records), is sonically simpler than her previous release, but lyrically still retains a space for personal reflection and self awareness. In this episode Joe and Charlotte discuss why she felt this new record was best suited for a band performance, how and why she got back into skateboarding and what it means for an introvert to lose social skills. Charlotte also shares her experience at Banff Center for the Arts and Creativity and how that led her to her working with Howard Bilerman at Hotel2Tango.

In this episode, Rev. Carol goes deeper with Dr. Chelsea Wakefield. We learn about the six love capacities - Commitment, Courage, Curiosity, Communication, Compassion, and Creativity. This is the 'how to' core of creating empowering relationships, centered on honesty and real love. We are divinely designed to 'see' each other and grow with our partners. And every relationship can become a soul-mate partnership (assuming there is no abuse, pathology, or addiction present). This is good news! Of note, what Dr. Wakefield presents can be applied to our family and work relationships as well.
The Rise of Plant Medicine in Modern Times is here... From academia to Wall Street, Burning Man to suburban soccer fields, the healing power of nature is spreading across the country. Not everyone can take off for an Ayahuasca journey in the jungle, but everyone can experience sacred medicine through the practice of micro-dosing. The beautiful, buzzy practice of micro-dosing is the daily practice of taking small, sub-perceptual doses of psychedelic medicines to promote healing, growth and transformation.Kayse Gehret - with over two decades in the healing arts - is the engaging, accessible founder of Micro-dosing for Healing. Her program is a nationwide virtual platform combining micro-dosing education and supportive community. The interactive group programs offer a unique, intimate community of individuals drawn to practice with diverse intentions... including physical healing, mental wellness, emotional balance and spiritual connection. Unlike pharmaceutical medications, natural plant medicines help us heal at the root cause and show tremendous potential for the healing of PTSD, trauma, adverse childhood experiences, depression and anxiety. The intention of the program is to introduce individuals to the beautiful practice of micro-dosing plant medicines, inspire a lifelong connection to nature, instill a reverence & respect for the medicines and create the conditions for healing inside a welcoming, supportive container.#microdosing #sacredplantmedicine #IntegrateYourselfPodcast #mushrooms #healingtrauma #plantmedicine #depressionandaxiety #transformation #personalgrowthConnect with Kayse here:https://www.microdosingforhealing.com/workwithkayseAccess show notes here:https://www.pureenergypdx.com/integrate-yourself-podcast/sacred-plant-medicineFour Sigmatic Order your Four Sigmatic medicinal mushrooms here and get 10% off with my code: INTEGRATEYOURSELFBuzzsprout - Let's get your podcast launched!

This week's guest is 9x best-selling author, 3 of which are of the New York Times, he is an award-winning journalist, and founder of the Flow Research Collective, Steven Kotler. Steven is the most respected voice on the subject of Flow + one of the greatest voices in Peak Performance, for excellent reasons. Obviously, as someone who loves neuroscience and the optimization of human potential, having Steven on the show to share his genius was an absolute honor. I loved taking in his incredible insights on the ins and outs of what a “flow state” is and how to achieve it to reach ultimate fulfillment and am so excited to share them in this episode with you. His latest book “The Art of Impossible” is legitimately one of my favorite books EVER- it is a playbook on the “WHAT, THE WHY + THE HOW” to get into Flow States. It now lives in my HALL-O-FAMER library + I find myself constantly opening it to take in bits of it on the regular. So in this EPIC conversation, Steven + I discuss: The definition of a flow state and peak performance Who benefits from being in FLOW STATES Using challenges to spark motivation and optimal performance The 10 triggers of “flow” Emotional set points of flow How you can use flow state to amplify your results The Art of Impossible, his latest book it's VALUABLE premise. The 5 main intrinsic motivators And so much more. This conversation is epic and filled with in-depth insight that I cannot put enough emphasis on its importance for ALL who want to reach peak performance states in their lives- and in my community- that means YOU.

Today KJ opens the SOAL listening gallery for a story from Shanna Windle, an attorney turned holistic-subconscious mind-hacker with a mission of helping us utilize the natural resources within ourselves to make changes and regain control in certain arenas of our lives. Using the award- winning approach of Rapid Transformational Therapy Hypnosis, Shanna guides her clients towards finally, completely breaking negative patterns in emotions and behaviors that have kept them from living their full potential.In the aftermath of grief and loss, including a divorce and the death of her mother, Shanna experienced the deterioration of her own emotional and physical well being. She sought answers to rising questions about mental wellness, maladaptive behavior patterns, and sustainable health which led Shanna to the decision to leave a 15-year career in law. She created a holistic health and Rapid Transformational Therapy practice based in Florida, Shine Wellness. Takeaways Hypnotherapy defined differently: Guided visualizations with a specific goal in mind. Carry the intention of uncovering the beliefs that may be obstacles to wholly healing. Habits are dictated by the subconscious mind. 95% of everything we do- our thinking, our actions and our feelings- derive from our subconscious. We have the capacity to rewire our thinking patterns to create new habits! Our brains possess the ability for plasticity and flexibility.Recalibration through prayer, time spent with kids and family, visualization and connecting with nature are all ways to practice self compassion and restore balance.Please rate and review this podcast if our stories have astonished you as well.

The Celtic story of Cerridwen and her cauldron calls to me as Halloween/Samhain approaches. She's a witch in search of a potion and yet, the tug of the story is deeper. Seasonal changes amplify the energies of betwixt and between that give rise to current challenges. This is a good time to examine your creative dreams. What do you long to bring into the world? Who are you willing to become in the process? Where will you turn for inspiration and guidance?Your ideas and expectations about creativity, and the images of the process that you hold in mind, determine the way that it will unfold. Cerridwen's story has helped me shift my perspective and listen more carefully to messages from the imaginal realm, from soul.Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/mythmatterspodcast)
Today I'm talking about what Brene Brown found in her research as she was interviewing people was that the people that she interviewed who most exhibited Wholehearted living weren't anxiety free or even anxiety - averse; they were anxiety aware. They were committed to a way of living where anxiety was a reality but not a lifestyle and they did this by cultivating calm and stillness in their lives and making these practices their norm.

“Really it's beyond just artistic expression, everybody is a creative in their own unique way.” -Coach Gabriella Dennery MD In today's podcast, Coach Gabriella Dennery MD and Master Certified Coach Jill Farmer make the case for creativity for physicians.

Jason Barnard is known as The Brand SERP Guy. SERP stands for search engine results page. Just think about any time you Google someones name, a band, an actor, a business - that's what pops up in the results. And he works to understand Google and how you can adjust what pops up when people search for you. That's pretty cool. In his lifetime Jason has been in a punk-folk band, a cartoonist, screenwriter, and started a children's tv show that had millions and millions of views. He currently is the founder and CEO of digital marketing agency, Kalicube. He's been on both sides of things as far as business and creativity, which gives him good insight and authority to talk about finding the line between business and creativity.

Part 1 Being an artist is hard sometimes but there's not much else that Pamela loves to do more than to create art, except for talking about art with other artists. Specifically talking about how to be more productive, more authentic, more free, and braver; She really loves that. Pamela is the creator and facilitator of Strong Artist Life and a professional abstract painter pursuing my career as a fine artist. She knew she wanted to be an artist when she was in kindergarten and studied Fine Art in college. Pamela has created art her whole life and spent too much of her adult life working in the corporate world at the peril of her artistic productivity. Pamela spent most of her life in Houston and then became a bit of a vagabond for a few years moving from Texas to Wisconsin, to Washington, to Florida, to Michigan, and back to Florida. Over a year ago, she heard the call to create a supportive and authentic group for artists that would help them become stronger artists and better people. Pamela states "It's been a fantastic experience watching these artists grow in their confidence, their output, their quality, and into new aspects of their careers. Their growth and success have continued to fuel my own art and confidence to continue to grow as an artist and as a facilitator to other artists."

She knew she wanted to be an artist when she was in kindergarten and studied Fine Art in college. Pamela has created art her whole life and spent too much of her adult life working in the corporate world at the peril of her artistic productivity. Pamela spent most of her life in Houston and then became a bit of a vagabond for a few years moving from Texas to Wisconsin, to Washington, to Florida, to Michigan, and back to Florida. Over a year ago, she heard the call to create a supportive and authentic group for artists that would help them become stronger artists and better people. Pamela states "It's been a fantastic experience watching these artists grow in their confidence, their output, their quality, and into new aspects of their careers. Their growth and success have continued to fuel my own art and confidence to continue to grow as an artist and as a facilitator to other artists." https://www.strongartistlife.com/bookacall

This week's podcast episode features an interview with Vanessa Ford. You may not realize the signs. One day, you feel whole, purposeful, and full of energy. The next day, you feel out of sorts. Though nothing has changed in your outside world, something inside feels off-balance. You work out religiously, but the slice of pizza you only looked at but didn't eat seemed to have found its way onto your scale. Your skin is drier and the grey hairs appeared overnight. You love life, yet your energy levels wax and wane. Should you give away those fabulous clothes in your closet that no longer fit? Or do you hold onto them thinking that more exercise and a stricter diet will help you wear them again with confidence? You love your partner, yet sometimes, you think of the unspeakable. You're hot and sweating at 3:00 pm, then cold and reaching for a cashmere pashmina the next. Whatever this is… it's temporary. Maybe it's even normal. Maybe it doesn't even have to be this way. Vanessa is the co-founder of MenoLabs, a company focused on women's issues during perimenopause/menopause. She and her friend of 20 years, Danielle Jacobs, created MenoLabs to address what they see as a glaring need in every woman's life. Vanessa was prompted to action when, at 44, she began her own transition into menopause. Unsatisfied with the lack of support that women experience during this stage of life, and finding the stereotypes of women in mid-life exasperating and insulting, she met the challenges of this stage of a woman's life with creativity. Named a top ten finalist in the Cartier Women's Initiative, Vanessa believes that for-profits can change the world and make a difference in people's lives with the same passion for mission used by nonprofits — and in fact, should do so if they want to be truly successful. She is, herself, successful, on a mission to make life better for others and doing it all with authenticity and flair.

This is Convo By Design with another installment of The Showroom presented by Walker Zanger featuring Cara Woodhouse, a multifaceted creative with exceptional vision and use of shape, color and negative space in her work which leads to an original aesthetic bolstered by her own unique approach to design. If you've listened to the show for any amount of time, you know by now that I don't just say nice things to be nice. From my perspective, because I only speak with creatives whose work I admire, for me, the conversation about the work itself is an exploration. A journey to extract the ideas behind the work itself to better understand how it all comes together. Woodhouse painted wood to look like black and white tile to fit a space and in doing so, made it look like a performance instead of trying to make it exact. Her rugs spill into spaces like a toppled milkshake. At times I found myself looking at her spaces that don't appear detailed at first glance yet every time I went back, I discovered something else I hadn't noticed prior. That is a magical quality that some designers posses that makes their work so special. Cara Woodhouse is one such designer. And we explore her work here, in The Showroom presented by Walker Zanger. Are you subscribing to the podcast, if not, please do so you get every episode automatically when they are published. You can find Convo By Design everywhere you find your favorite podcasts and now, you can find us on DesignNetwork dot Org, a destination dedicated to podcasts, all things design and architecture so make sure to check it out. Thank you, Cara. Thank you for your time and talent. Thank you Walker Zanger for your continued support of Convo By Design and ThermaSol, you guys are remarkable partners. Thank you for listening. Without you, what's the point. As you may have noticed, Convo By Design is bringing you design talent from all across the country. It's not just about LA and New York, but Las Vegas, Austin and Philadelphia. We are so rich in talent that sometimes, we miss some of the gems. Keep those email coming, email me with show suggestions and feel free to suggest a designer, architect or other creative you think the editorial team should be aware of.

On this week's episode of Inside Outside Innovation, we sit down with Nora Herting, Founder and CEO of ImageThink and Author of the new book, Draw Your Big Idea. Nora and I talk about the benefits of visual thinking, some of the myths surrounding art and business, and some of the exercises anyone can use to think and work more creatively using visualization tools. Let's get started.Inside Outside Innovation is the podcast to help new innovators navigate what's next. Each week, we'll give you a front row seat to what it takes to learn, grow, and thrive in today's world of accelerating change and uncertainty. Join us as we explore, engage, and experiment with the best and the brightest innovators, entrepreneurs, and pioneering businesses. It's time to get started.Interview Transcript of Nora Herting, Founder and CEO of ImageThink and Author of Draw Your Big IdeaBrian Ardinger: Welcome to another episode of Inside Outside Innovation. I'm your host, Brian Ardinger. And as always, we have another amazing guest. Today we have Nora Herting. She is Founder and CEO at the visual strategy firm ImageThink, and Author of the new book called Draw Your Big Idea: The Ultimate Creativity Tool for Turning Thoughts into Action and Dreams into Reality. Welcome to the show, Nora. Nora Herting: Hi, Brian. Great to be here. Brian Ardinger: I am so excited to have you on this show. Because I've been a big proponent, whether I'm working with startups or corporate innovation teams about using visual tools to help you think through new ideas and launch new projects and that. And when I came upon you and the stuff that you're doing in this space, I wanted to have you on the show to dig in deeper about what it all takes to make this happen.So, can you tell us a little bit about yourself? How you went from becoming an artist and a photographer to working your way to work with some of the biggest companies in the world, Google and IBM and NASA on this idea of visual strategy. Nora Herting: Basically, I had started my career off in academia as an artist, going into academia, sort of the most sure-fire fit. You get the tenure track and the health insurance and whatnot. And I was 27. Managed to get a position. And then had this terrible realization that my goal was really just a failure of imagination. That I hadn't really thought or tested what else I could do with my skill set, outside of sort of this academic world.So, I left my position, moved to New York with no job. And found myself at a division of Cap Gemini that we would call now like their design thinking solution. But this was the early 2000s. And that wasn't really a term we even used there. But it was a network of facilitators that we would put huge corporate projects through these innovative incubators for three days and tell them in three days we could get three months of work out of their team. And I learned the skill of graphic recording while I was there because they knew I, besides having a Masters, I had also for a little while been an elementary school art teacher, which was actually kind of a great qualification for this particular work. And saw the power of visuals to help business people really clarify their thinking.Get people on the same page. Sort out a lot of complexity. And in time, my first client, when we started ImageThink was NASA. And I had this real moment there where they had brought in someone to talk about the space glove. They had not been able to innovate a better space glove for several decades. They opened it up to a public contest. All these teams in turn, but it was actually one solo engineer that designed a better space glove than all of the NASA scientists in a couple of decades. And they were fascinated about how this worked, and they described this guy's process. And while I was there, I'm visualizing the story. And I realized that they're really just describing a series of iterative process.Things that are really intuitive to tinkers to artists. And that it was just this moment where I thought these things that I've learned that seems so innate to the creative process were mysteries to corporations. So that's one of the joys of ImageThink is not just using the visual tools, but really helping. Tried to demystify that for business leaders so that they can take some of those same mindsets and techniques and apply them to innovation in larger companies. Brian Ardinger: I think a lot of folks do have that misperception, that businesses over here and art is over here. What are some of the myths that you've seen of how people and innovators should be doubling down on art in the business world?Nora Herting: Great question. I love this question. You know one big myth is if you don't have the title Creative on your business card and then you don't have an opportunity to think creatively. Just don't believe that that's true. At ImageThink I think that we believe that everybody who has a job that requires complexity or problem solving has a huge creative opportunity in front of them.So that's one thing is people will think, oh, because I'm in engineering or because I'm in HR, what I don't get to be creative. I forgot how to be creative. Another one is just this narrow idea that, you know, you're only creative if you can paint or write or play the guitar. Right. So, expanding that idea to things that are more broad and then, you know, just kind of a lack of creative confidence in people, kind of around those ideas. And, you know, we have different ways of trying to break that down and expose people, show people, that they can exercise that muscle. And really, they have that opportunity every time. Brian Ardinger: Walk me through some of the benefits that you've seen firsthand about getting people unstuck or what really happens when you move into that art visual mode to tackle problems that you couldn't track before.Nora Herting: One example or one benefit of it is first off is to remember it's a very, very old technology. We've been drawing and using pictures to communicate before, you know, as a species before we had written language. You know, some of the earliest cave paintings are 30,000 BC. And they're basically instructions for hunting.So, this is something that we've been hard-wired neurologically for a long time to process things and pictures. And when you do that, you're using multiple facets of your brain, including the prefrontal cortex. I like to tell people if they want to look at a problem differently, or they want to use a different set of neurons to fire, ask people to illustrate, or at least use visuals of some aspect of it to really get people just literally to think a little bit differently. So, one way we do that is first to just have people practice on really low stakes things. We'll do something called like a visual bio. We'll ask everyone to tell us about themselves, really mundane things like their name, their role, but using only pictures to convey that.And what happens is there's a lot of laughing, people feel a little awkward. But people realize pretty quickly that there's a lot more nuance that gets conveyed when someone is illustrating, let's say their role, than just say, you know, I'm a Director of Innovation at X company. Right. So how they think about that?So that immediately gets people thinking a little bit differently, even if it's not the problem at hand and understanding that there's a lot of nuance that can be conveyed. And then it's great because you have people buying in pretty quickly to the process of working visually as they start to try to apply that to real problems that they have in business.The Ewing Marion Kauffman FoundationSponsor Voice: The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation is a private, nonpartisan foundation based in Kansas City, Missouri, that seeks to build inclusive prosperity through a prepared workforce and entrepreneur-focused economic development.

It's called Draw Your Big Idea. It's got a ton of like exercises. I love it because it's very tactical. So, can you talk a little bit about the book and how it came to be and what are some of the things that the audience will get from it?Nora Herting: Yeah, so what was great about this is the publishers at Chronicle came to us and said, you know, we'd love for you to do something. What are you thinking? And I really wanted, my coauthor as well, really wanted to give somebody something that was practical. That they could use right away. So rather than writing a book, we sort of essentially drew a book. As you said, I think there's 108 visual exercises in it. A lot of them are versions of exercises that we use for our corporate clients but applied to an individual level as well. So, moving people from kind of the whole cycle of innovation, if you will, Brian. From scanning their environment, assessing the current state, thinking about all the potential ideas that could come out of a problem statement. All of these things, your walkthrough, basically in drawing exercises in the book up until the final chapter, which is you kind of moved through the Innovation process.And now you're speaking strategically, like how are you going to launch this new idea? Whether that's a new business or a new endeavor or, you know, a personal project. It builds on itself. It takes you through all those things. And for listeners out there, you can also kind of flip to one exercise and say, you know, I really need to do something around mapping my resources, you know, as a team. And there is a visual exercise for you to do for that as well as many other ones. Brian Ardinger: What do you see holds people back from this? You do see some people gravitate to it, but for the most part, like you said, there's a lot of. For whatever reason they are scared or fearful of what's going on. What holds people back and more importantly, what can you do to overcome that fear?Nora Herting: Well, I think that in our experience, like on a corporate level, when people are in the room and they see the visuals being done for them, they're very enthusiastic. They see the power of it. They appreciate it. I can pick up a pen and apply this to myself. That's maybe a little bit bigger of a jump, right? And so one of the misconceptions that we talked about is people feeling like, oh, I'm not creative.Another one is just around the skill level. People will say, I can't draw a straight line, you know, or my Kindergartner can draw better than me. I don't care. Because again, we're talking about leaders. We're talking about innovators. We're talking about communicating. Right. And I try to remind people really, it's not about the artistry, it's about what is being communicated and what the impact is.And so there's a number of exercises we kind of do to show people that we're wired to make meaning out of images. You know, I just talked about how we've been doing this for 30,000 years plus. So, your audience basically just needs a minimal viable product, right? Stick figures totally work. And so, once we give people a few exercises where they see that they see from other people's bad stick figure drawings, that they get a lot out of what the person's trying to communicate. They can start to see, you know, what it's really just about the end result, which is, am I communicating my idea. Am I aligning people to it? Is it resonating? And that you need an actually very low level of skill to do that. Brian Ardinger: Do you see particular types of tasks or particular types of projects that this works better for than others? Nora Herting: At ImageThink we have kind of created this life cycle of an idea, if you will. It's called the ImageThink method. Clients come to us at different points. You know, sometimes they come to us at the top of a project like, oh, we need to launch a whole new product or we're having an acquisition. But sometimes they come to us later when it's a little more tactical, like you say, or, you know, we need to map out the strategy. So we're able to understand from that where the client is and match different exercises to where they need to be.We've helped, you know, not just at the beginning of blue sky conversations and innovation, all the way to, how do we market this now that we have it ready to go to our client. So, what I love is that visuals can be helpful, I think, along the whole process. Wouldn't you agree? Brian Ardinger: Oh, absolutely. I mean, one of the things that I like, specifically like about the Business Model Canvas, for example, is it takes that what used to be a 90-page document of what your business idea was, and kind of visualizes it out and to nine core components and you use sticky notes and other ways to think through. And it makes it much more accessible than a spreadsheet or much more accessible than a document that, once it's in a document, people think it's the perfect thing. It's the perfect plan. But as soon as you add the visuals and that it brings out the messiness, that is the reality that you're dealing with in the real world. And that's why I like that particular type of technique.Nora Herting: Yeah. I think that that's true. And sometimes people think might be a barrier, but really often actually isn't, is we have a lot of technology clients. So, you know whether it's IT or pharmaceuticals, with a lot of complexity, right? And sometimes they think, oh, this is too detailed, or this is too scientific to be approached this way.But actually, most of the time, and you might've found this in your work, right. Or talking to other innovators, those people who are such subject matter experts sometimes have a really hard time leveling up from the level of detailed expertise they have. So that they can communicate it to a bigger audience. So, they can kind of engage the cross-functional departments or larger stakeholders that they need.That's been a real sweet spot for us because we're able to listen to those folks. To steal the big ideas from it. Understand what's going to resonate for other people. And help them simplify it into a story that's a little bit more relatable. So, I'm not sure if you've also found that to be the case when you've worked visually that sometimes the simplification is a benefit rather than a detraction. Brian Ardinger: And what I've also found is going through the process, your first map is not always the perfect map. Like, can you map it out and you draw it out and it's like, well, that's not exactly right. So you go back and modify it or change it or whatever. And that process gets you to think through what's actually going on in the world, around you, and that.So, I find it very powerful, and I appreciate you helping us think through some of this kind of stuff. One of the last questions I have is how can you build this type of visual thinking, visual strategy into your everyday practice. Whether it's at work or at home. Are there particular techniques or things to give a non-artist or person who doesn't do this on a regular basis, to build this into their normal practice?Nora Herting: Yeah, so that's a great question. You know, some things that people feel more empowered by is if they create a set of icons that they're going to use. So, you know, if you're in a particular domain, sometimes I'll have people like basically we kind of do like Business Pictionary. Which is like write out terms that you are often come across or you often need to express.And then we have everybody create, you know, the minimal viable product of how they would express that idea. And that can just be on Post-it Notes. So, you know, you might have 5 to 10 concepts that you've worked out and you're like, okay, this is the way I'm going to depict this visually. So now when you're thinking about it, and you're trying to practice, you're not inventing these as you go.And that's something that we do at ImageThink. Right? Like our team, we've been at thousands of meetings. So, if someone says the word disruption, we already have one or two go-to icons for that. We're not having to make it up on the fly as much. So, I think that that's like a good way to just start practicing that muscle. And then seeing if you can integrate that in. Another example would be the next time you run into a problem is to challenge yourself, to try to depict that problem as a visual as well. You know and see if you might not uncover some different ways of thinking about it or using a metaphor. There's a great article by this man named Dan Seewald, really great Innovation expert, who talks about using metaphor as a tool for Innovation. Like how is this problem maybe a metaphor for another problem. So, getting people to try to draw out that problem in a metaphor, I think could uncover a lot of different opportunity and be great practice as well. For More InformationBrian Ardinger: Absolutely.

Personalization and Creativity in Customer Experience Shep Hyken interviews Noa Danon, Co-Founder and CEO of EverAfter. She has extensive experience leading Product and User Experience teams. They discuss how organizations businesses can ensure customer renewals and expansion by creating personalized customer experiences. Top Takeaways: · The customer who makes the decision to buy a product may not be the same person who uses the product. Businesses need to get to know and personalize the experience for both types of customers. · Businesses may start focusing on one type buyer persona but as they scale, they will need to create different types of experiences or services for different types of people. · You don't need to be Amazon to create a personalized experience. Most of the time, it only takes a few questions to figure out what is important to your customers and personalize your offerings to them. · Companies need data about their customers so they can continue to automate and personalize customer experiences even as they scale. · Data helps with personalization both in sales and in customer service. The more you know about your customers, the more personalized the support that you can provide can be. This creates a confidence between the customers and the business. · Leaders need to create an environment that encourages front line employees to bring ideas on how to make the customer experience better. Quote: “Every business is a subscription business. Whether it is a typical subscription renewal of the customer deciding to continue to do business with the business, the goal is to make sure your customers come back instead of going to a competitor.” About: Noa Danon is the Co-Founder and CEO of EverAfter. Noa's vision for EverAfter was heavily influenced by her experiences as a product manager, where she observed the disconnect between the user and product experience. EverAfter was created exactly to meet that need, allowing companies to personalize the customer experience beginning with the initial contract all the way through renewal and expansion. Shep Hyken is a customer service and experience expert, New York Times bestselling author, award-winning keynote speaker, and your host of Amazing Business Radio. Learn more about your ad choices.

With our current top-down education model, where the bottom line at the administrative level seems to be more important than whether our kids learn, creativity has been thrown out the window. We're teaching to the test, rather than fostering the four C's (creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, communication), tools that are necessary in our workforce. What if our curriculum focused on creative problem solving that's realistic and engaging, that our kids are excited about learning? This week on the podcast, we're talking to author Chad Stewart, who has created a media empire that brings the world of Britfield to kids across the globe. His realistic adventure series and workshops model how to engage students in the classroom and out. In the conversation, we talk about bringing more fun into classrooms, how to make writing easier for authors, and how to open opportunities for learners. Listen in now! About Chad Stewart: Welcome to the World of Britfield: a media empire that is impacting and improving education, literacy, and media while bringing encouragement to children and families worldwide. One of the most awarded books in fiction, Britfield & the Lost Crown is taking the World by Storm. This timeless adventure series is transforming literature while fostering creativity and critical thinking. Seven extraordinary movies (2023) will follow the 7-book series. Born in Newport Beach, California, Chad Robert Stewart is an award-winning and bestselling author, international strategist, prominent speaker, and creativity educator. He founded the prestigious Britfield Institute, a non-profit dedicated to creativity and literacy; and Devonfield, a media empire committed to the highest quality in education, publishing, and film production. He received a Bachelor of Arts in British Literature and European History from Brown University; earned an M.B.A. from Boston College; and is pursuing a Master of Science in Advanced Management and a PhD in Creativity and Innovation at Claremont Graduate University. Now based in San Diego, he is a strong supporter of education and the Arts; professor at Fermanian School of Business, Point Loma Nazarene University; and Past President (Board of Directors) of the San Diego Ballet.
