They glue themselves to the street and ruin family fun at the Macy's parade. They throw paint at historic artwork, invade Roslyn Carter's funeral service, accuse a child enjoying a football game of being a racist and instigate a riot at the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting. The progressive/agitating class wants to RUIN FUN and make life for everyone miserable. Today's PUSH BACK takes us to Congress where a growing chorus of lawmakers are telling Speaker Mike Johnson NOT to do something that puts American freedom in jeopardy.

Get ready for a cinematic exploration of innovation and intellectual property as depicted in popular movies about inventors and creators. In this episode, IP Goes Pop!® co-hosts Michael Snyder and Joseph Gushue, peel back the layers of iconic movies that not only inspire us, but also shed light on the realities of building successful businesses and protecting ideas. Starting with 1988's Tucker: The Man and His Dream, your hosts dive into the story of Preston Tucker and his revolutionary automobile, the Tucker 48. This tale not only epitomizes the spirit of disrupting the status quo but also draws parallels with modern auto-innovators like Tesla. Tucker's journey sheds light on the crucial role of patents in protecting groundbreaking ideas, emphasizing the continued real-world relevance of Tucker's innovations in today's automobiles. The episode next moves through the intricate mazes of copyrights, branding, and partnerships. The Social Network, which depicts the founding of Facebook, serves as a prime example of the potential legal pitfalls that can emerge in the creation of successful companies. It delves into the entangled web of legal battles and the importance of safeguarding ideas in the tech world. This evolution, of what is now known as Meta, highlights the necessity of meticulous contracts and legal representation at different stages of bringing an idea into the world. Another extraordinary origin story is that of the McDonald's franchise, as portrayed in The Founder. While the success of the McDonald's franchise demonstrates how effective branding and strategic IP licensing can catapult a company to global recognition, this cautionary tale of partnerships offers valuable lessons for businesses of all sizes. Ultimately the McDonalds brothers lost control of their company, their name, and their IP such as the “golden arches,” when they were outmaneuvered by an emboldened Ray Kroc and a “handshake” agreement. The film Flash of Genius draws attention to the pitfalls and triumphs of patent litigation. Lesson learned are especially valuable for inventors and creators, as it underscores the complexities of litigation, the importance of having competent legal representation, and the dangers of self-representation in intellectual property matters. Listeners will come away from this episode not only entertained but also enriched with a deeper understanding of the intersection between intellectual property and popular culture. Whether you're an entrepreneur, a legal professional, a student, or simply a movie buff, IP Goes Pop!® offers a captivating and educational experience that will entertain and inform. Don't miss out on this engaging and enlightening journey through the world of IP and movies!

This episode we welcome Michael Affronti, the SVP & General Manager of the Commerce Cloud business at Salesforce for a fascinating look at the rapidly evolving world of generative AI. In an expansive, yet highly practical, discussion Michael helps us separate the hope from the hype and "chalks the field" on the most important applications to automate mundane tasks or enhance the customer experience. We also go deep on where retailers are already gaining traction and where they need to begin to test and learn.But first we open up with our take on the most interesting recent retail news, including a new retail monitor just launched by CNBC and the NRF and a quick look at what it tells us. Then we unpack lots of retail earnings, which were mostly disappointing--and in a few cases downright scary (Kohl's, Macy's, Allbirds, and most of luxury). Yet Walmart, Abercrombie & Fitch, the off-price apparel players, and, most notably On Running, managed to rise above the rest. We close with our view that BFCM may ultimately be much ado about nothing much.About MichaelMichael is the SVP & General Manager of Commerce Cloud at Salesforce, overseeing the various Commerce Cloud products and services that enable customers to build commerce experiences and grow revenue their way.

Why did I decide to encore this show about being customer-centric and transforming or innovating at a very large organization? Well, two main reasons. First reason can be neatly summed up by this recent Tweet from Rik Renard, which I have edited slightly to suit my own purposes. Here's the Tweet: “The Achilles' heel for most healthcare [innovators] is overlooking the role of change management. The deal isn't sealed until the whole team is raving. Adoption doesn't [automatically follow innovative thoughts no matter how good they are or how much it cost to build or buy anything]. Take change mgmt seriously.” This is relevant to pharma companies, to big provider organizations, to SaaS vendors, to payers … pretty much anyone. So, yeah. This show … still relevant. But also there's a #2 reason for this encore. It's coming at ya smack in the middle of an ongoing series for boards of directors, CEOs, and CFOs of self-insured employers. As discussed last week in the show with Mark Cuban and Ferrin Williams, PharmD, MBA (EP418), healthcare has become financialized. There is a whole financial layer sitting in between health benefits and the employer, and dealing with that requires customer centricity, transformation, and innovation at the employer level—a little change management, if you will. And with that, here is your encore. I was at the PanAgora Pharma Customer Experience (CX) Summit. Let me tell you one of my big takeaways. Many at pharma companies who are trying to convince their organizations of the need to be provider- and/or patient-centric are having a tough go of it. Heard that coming from every direction. Seems there are quite a few pharma organizations out there who are not actually customer/patient-centric. Say it isn't so. Turns out, they continue to be pretty darn brand-centric whether or not anyone besides the CX team and the most successful KAMs (key account managers) realize this hard truth. This matters because, from a provider organization, physician, or patient standpoint, it's not what's written on the walls … it's what goes on in the halls. It's what a company actually does in their interactions with the rest of the healthcare ecosystem that matters and that builds their reputation. You see this lack of customer centricity and, et cetera et cetera, there are certainly other things going on here; but you see the lack of customer centricity manifesting, right? You see the pharma reps that get kicked out of hospital systems because the perception is they add little if any value and “waste doctors' time; all they do is shove detail aids in our faces.” Heard that recently. Look, this doesn't just pertain to Pharma; this is a message for the whole industry. But there is certainly a way to do well by doing good, and how that starts is helping provider organizations and patients improve patient outcomes as the primary goal. Being innovative to that end. It's about supporting the best-practice standard of care and bringing resources to bear that are truly helpful. That is how more of the right patients can get the right treatment/drug at the right time or take their meds as per the A1A clinical guideline. It's probably also the way to sustainable business success. I've said it here a thousand times: People trying to do the right thing by patients all need to work together. If there's a party in the mix that nobody else wants to deal with because they are deemed not a team player or they don't listen … yeah, that's what I call a competitive disadvantage, beyond just squandering their ability to achieve their mission statement and improve patient care and lives, that is. Today's conversation is with Karen Root, who was a speaker at the aforementioned PanAgora conference. In this healthcare podcast, we are talking about how to make transformation and innovation actionable at a large organization—maybe a pharma company but pretty much any large organization with lots of people, lots of human beings with different motivations and goals. As we all know, for every early adopter, there are (it feels like) five laggards who will fight you tooth and nail because they do not want to transform. They like being brand-centric, and it's been working out fine … well, up until this year, at least. Karen Root is currently director of experience strategy at Boehringer Ingelheim, which is a pharma company. For many years prior to her current role, she was an enterprise head of brand and culture at WL Gore & Associates. What we talk about in this show is how to break down the historical “brand is king” mentality so that people want to follow with the awareness, courage, and determination to do so. Everything that we talk about in this episode can also be applied to pretty much any organizational transformation or the rollout of any innovation or new capability. Here's the key things that Karen talks about which are essential for an organization to transform, maybe (again) in a way that is customer-centric and/or to roll out new innovations or capabilities: 1. Leaders must communicate a compelling vision that also includes a realistic assessment of what it's gonna take to reach that vision and offer hope and the promise that the hard work and inevitable problems will all be worth it. 2. Systems thinking—a consideration of the systems and the people who will need to be a part of the transformation, thinking through what is likely to go wrong and proactively planning for it 3. Identify the right entry point. This should be a micro-journey or a quick win so that the team can score a victory and get through the messy middle that exists in any transformation or rollout. Triple points if you can find a micro-moment that has some emotionality connected to it from your customers' perspective or patient perspective. If you can fix a so-called moment that matters, it really matters. Consider starting by looking into call center logs, finding a common complaint, and fixing it. Do it this way and it's harder for anybody to complain that the status quo is so super amazing and tell you to talk to the hand. 4. Determine how you are going to measure what your quick win accomplished, as well as your whole larger transformational effort. 5. Ensure you have a full story arc here that shows the before and the after that clearly articulates that the before (the status quo) is problematic and that we have to, with urgency, get to the after. 6. Never forget that we're working with human beings here and not, as they say, rational economic actors. One heads-up: In the conversation with Karen today, we talk a lot about the so-called J curve. As Karen says (and you can look this up), whenever you introduce a new anything into an organization, at some point, there's gonna be a mess-up. And when something messes up, the whole team will spiral into a so-called “trough of disillusionment” or a “trough of despair,” sometimes it's called. This is the rock-bottom hook of that J in the J curve. The thing is, if a leader's vision isn't sufficient or their will to continue isn't sufficient, then the organization quits at this low point instead of working through it and coming out in a better place on the other side of the J. And you know what happens then. From that point forward until eternity, everybody who brings up implementing an innovation or a transformation will definitely hear the lecture about the time we tried that and how it failed miserably. So, the J curve … Check it out. Don't underestimate it. One very last thing: If you are working for a large organization (like Fortune 500 large) and you have succeeded in moving a transformation forward (like being actually patient-centric or customer-centric, for example), hit me up. I would certainly love to hear your thoughts on how you did it and why you think you were successful and the impact that you had. You can learn more by connecting with Karen on LinkedIn.

We have to break it down into a couple of key steps.” 11:39 What is the J curve? 12:26 “Disruption is going to happen; it's just how do we minimize its impact.” 14:00 Why is hope so important for success in change? 17:22 “Leverage your people; understand where they are in the change curve.” 26:24 “We can't manage what we don't measure.” 26:33 “We have to not only measure in quantitative ways but qualitative.” 27:35 What's the downside to not being able to innovate? 28:55 Why does leadership need to have a story to tell? 31:19 “We have to remember that these are human beings and to look for those tells.” You can learn more by connecting with Karen on LinkedIn.

For this episode, David is joined by Rajeev Kapur, who is a leading tech executive, leader, innovator, AI expert, and author whose current focus is on leadership. The world is changing at a pace that we have never seen before. Navigating this change and continuing to thrive requires a different way of leading, which is what this fascinating and informative episode is all about. Rajeev's book Chase Greatness: Enlightened Leadership for the Generation of Disruption is an important read. KEY TAKEAWAYS We are experiencing massive disruption in the workplace, so leadership needs to change. Gen Z will soon be the biggest workforce and women will also be in a slight majority. AI and remote working is also changing things fast. Companies need to ask what they can do to help their workers to be successful outside of the walls of the company as well as inside. People need to understand that they have to deliver in order to be able to work flexibly. Put KPI's in place. Don't try to solve your employees' problems - lead them to water. A culture of gratitude is transformative. AI is already disrupting and creating a huge wave of creativity. BEST MOMENTS‘I felt that we were really at the perfect storm,' ‘We want to have a culture of gratitude.' ‘Do everything you can to reduce your attrition rate.' ‘AI can do the one thing money can't do...it can buy time.'

Collegiality and the presumption that opposing counsel work together in good faith are bedrocks of the American legal profession, as well as unpopular ideas and clients being able to obtain competent representation and equal access to justice under the law. In recent years, there has been an increase in disruptive activity in law schools. We have seen law students declare ideas "too harmful" for open debate and try to “cancel” or “shame” anyone who challenges their views. We have also seen instances where law students shout down invited speakers, even federal judges. But today's law students are tomorrow's lawyers. How should the legal profession prepare to deal with these recent trends on campus? What’s the responsibility of faculty and administrators to model and educate on appropriate behavior in an academic community and in the legal profession? Should there be consequences for students that engage in disruptive activity in law school? Should legal employers be concerned how these students will handle representing clients and making arguments that do not align with their own views? Should clients be worried about hiring lawyers that have personally disrupted an event by a judge? Our panel will feature leaders from all the major institutions that will have to answer these important questions: academia, the courts, law firms, and in-house legal departments.

A few years ago you could have assumed all diamonds had been dug out of the ground – but now it's true that some of them have been created, at unbelievably high temperatures, in just a matter of weeks. In the first of two Business Daily programmes about the evolving diamond market, Lesley Curwen heads to the glamorous jewellery district of Hatton Garden in London – to see how the jewellery world is being re-shaped by the mass production of laboratory-made stones. We hear from India how they're created in temperatures as hot as the sun - and talk to one of the world's biggest jewellery brands about why they are using only man-made diamonds. We also look at claims that man-made diamonds are the green and ethical choice. (Picture: Tweezers holding a diamond. Credit: Getty Images) Presenter: Lesley Curwen Producer: Barbara George
