In September, Ford Motor Company hired top Apple Executive Doug Field to run a secret division at the company. Another big move in Ford's history, back in September 2006, Ford hired Alan Mullaly, former EVP at Boeing, as CEO of their company.Why am I mentioning both of these big, out-of-the-box hires from Ford? It isn't because I own some of their stock, it's because these moves were considered bold. For the longest time, Automotive was very insular, hiring those from within the same sector, stealing the latest ‘hot shot' in automotive as their ‘bold move' promoting from within instead of being open to new innovations and a new vision for not only the company but the industry. In this episode, we're talking about what it takes to be successful. How bolder thinking, new ideas, changed perspectives and controversial opinions are the only way to get ahead and expand.

In our modern culture, we often see ourselves as the bastion of diversity and inclusion. Because of this, we assume that all who came before us failed to be diverse. What we learn from a surface-level reading of the New Testament letters is how intentionally diverse and inclusive the Body of Christ truly was. But how was this obtained, and what is the purpose behind it?

The culture's hostility toward God, Christians, and the Bible has rapidly increased in the last 20-30 years. This has caused confusion in the Church concerning how it engages. Lucky for us, there's been a game-changer of a book written on the topic of cultural engagement to help the Church see what biblical cultural engagement looks like. The book is Culture Intelligence: Living for God in a Diverse, Pluralistic World and was written by Dr. Darrell Bock, who also happens to be our guest today in this two-part episode!Dr. Darrell Bock is Executive Director of Cultural Engagement at the Hendricks Center for Leadership and Senior Research Professor of New Testament Studies at Dallas Theological Seminary.Order your copy of Cultural IntelligenceCheck out the Table PodcastIf you enjoy this podcast and want others to hear about it, please go to this link to leave a 5-star review!!

Tom O'Keefe is a social impact entrepreneur, and the founder of Stride for Stride, Heart to Cart, and Bostontweet. Stride for Stride is a non-profit running organization that buys race bibs for immigrant, BIPOC, and low-income runners. Their goal is to make races more accessible and more diverse. Tom started Stride for Stride in 2018 after struggling to pay for race bibs and observing that most races lacked diversity - his assumption was that this was due, in part, to the high cost of entry. Since 2018, Stride for Stride has grown to over 60 avid runners from over a dozen countries. They compete in everything from marathons to 5Ks, and even a 50-mile Ultra. All but two of their runners are immigrants representing the following countries; Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Colombia, Brazil, Chile, Venezuela, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Jamaica, Nigeria, and the United States, as well as Puerto Rico. Discussed in this episode: --Boston globe article on Bostontweet --Story of how Tom met his wife --Rosie's Place --Sid Baptista of PIONEERS Run Crew on Social Sport --Black Men Run --Black Girls Run --Latinos Run --Dominican Runners, NYC --Heart to Cart --Impact Video Group --Donate here or text STRIDE to 44321 Quotes: --“Races are the only sport where you're running with the best of the best—the professionals, like Meb and Shalane. There is no other sport where you're competing with them; you can't play football with Tom Brady. The same thing goes for wage inequity. A CEO makes 258 times what the average employee makes, which is awful, but if those two guys run the same race, the employee could beat the CEO. How empowering is that?” --“When you finish a race, you're high-fiving everyone. That's all you care about—that you ran. You're just so happy for yourself and for everyone else. Nothing else matters at that point. You're not thinking about politics or how much money you made…It changed my life, and I think it can change so many others.” Follow Tom: Twitter, Instagram Follow Stride for Stride: Twitter, Instagram Follow Social Sport: Website, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Newsletter --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/socialsport/support

Ramin Djawadi and Brandon Campbell have collaborated on some blockbuster series, including Game of Thrones and Westworld . They say Amazon's Game Studios gave them an incredible oppportunity to create the music for the huge, mysterious setting of Aeturnum in the just-released MMO, New World. For Ramin and Brandon, the fantasy of the world of the game, and the diverse landscape and factions gave them almost too many ideas for the instrumention and sound of the music. They kept the soundtrack cohesive by creating an instantly identifiable theme that weaves through all the areas the player can explore. There are lots of ways a player can spend time in the game: exploring, battling enemies, and setting up a home base for crafting and resting. Brandon says writing music to reinforce the safe nature of the homebase was kind of a challenge, because they're not called on to do that in their other scores. He says they wanted to remind players to take a moment and enjoy their journey through

Sean: So what are some of the lessons that you took away and that experience where you don't like the team, but you produce magic when you're on stage? Jason: Actually, that is an interesting question because number one is the team is together because we played well together. Not because we liked each other. So actually being on stage was the time that everybody kind of came together in a cohesive unit. And I think we got off stage and sulk in our corner. So the point of the team was the music. It wasn't the rest of the stuff. And when we were creating, we would argue, you know, writing songs, people argue all the time. And it was pretty, pretty boring a lot of the time. And if you ever got ill, it was really difficult to deal with. And one thing I learned there is, however tired I am, however pissed off I am with everybody else in the band. When it comes to saying I have two hours and I need to perform for two hours as I need to look happy for two hours, I need to perform, do a show for four or 500 people who have come to see us. However tired I am, however much I don't want to do it, how much I've argued with the people in the band, I can do it and it looks good. And that's the point from my perspective is you can always push through if you've got the willpower to do so. And a lot of that has to do with adrenaline. You get a little bit of adrenaline running and you can push through something for a couple of hours. And my way of thinking of that was saying - "yeah, I can always do it whatever happens" and you know, 600 times managed to, I mean, most of the time I actually really wanted to do it, but every now and then, you know, you're out a little or annoyed, you don't, but you can still get through. Sean: You know, It's something that I think I have to think a lot about because teams today, we don't operate like that. And you mentioned that you like to work with people you'd like, and who like you otherwise as leaders, we both know it's not sustainable. And when we're on stage, on-air, when in our business, we're not playing as well as we want to be like how you guys play on stage. Jason: Yeah, I think kind of the music, the creative side, and the fact that you've got a crowd of people who are getting really into it, means that you think. Well, actually what I think doesn't matter. I'm not here for me. I'm here for them, and therefore I will perform, and I will forget that maybe we had an argument just before we came on stage. If you search the barking dogs, the ace of spades, you'll see a video of us playing and you'll see that you know, it made a pretty good show. I'm very proud of what we did. And the other thing, of course, is even if you're underperforming a little bit, the other members of the team, the group can pull you up. With music, it's the whole thing, or it's nothing. So if I'm not up to or on form, somebody else will pull through for me as it were. So, you know, I kind of said, well, I can always pull through, but obviously I need help. And the team helps, the group helps the other people in the team-group help. And I think that thing is it's always for the audience and it's not for yourself.

Which kind of wisdom will people need to master to overcome major negative societal and/or psychological changes after the pandemic?

Memorable Quotes: “What people say or do is a reflection of who they are and what I say and do is a reflection of who I am.” “Freedom is when your mind, body, and spirit don't get in the way.” “We are only as great as the least among us.” “Always choose people that are better than you. Always choose people that challenge you and are smarter than you. Always be the student.” - Sandra Bullock What You'll Learn: How to manage relationships with others in the workplace and community and how to build a more diverse tribe. This Episode Includes: Robinson teaches that mindset helps you overcome adversities. Building intentional relationships involves finding like-minded people who will lift you up and amplify you where you are. Setting boundaries around relationships that are not mutually beneficial is important for personal growth and health. Managing relationships is a part of life. Empathy for others helps you communicate and respond in any situation. Define what success means for you and make sure it doesn't include your job title. Everyone is diverse. Incorporating the principles of inclusiveness allows everyone to reach their full potential helps us all. An authentic way to build a more diverse tribe is to make sure you do it where you feel comfortable. There may be a time where you can not control loneliness, like the pandemic, and you must learn how to be okay being alone. Three Takeaways From Today's Episode: Invite one person to lunch this week and get to know them on a personal level. Consider joining an organization, club, or association that includes a diverse range of people. If you are lonely, find a trusted confidant or healthcare provider who can help you learn how to not feel alone when you are by yourself.

Often when we discuss diversity, we promote inclusion and fairness from a recruiting perspective. However, as Jody and I discuss in this episode, diversity not only applies to human resources but also input and imagination. When new ideas emerge, how are they communicated and exchanged? Are you reacting or responding? Are you putting yourself in the shoes of your clients and competitors or not? Are you considering new ways to train new talent in the way they go? If not, consider red teaming, an exercise in testing policies and processes against external criteria. The end goal? To encourage fresh insights in a non-reactive way that maintains the virtue and dignity of your core values. As you'll find, while the practice may be novel at first, the result will more than justify the acclimation.
