The Success Factor: Developing the Mindset and Skillset for Peak Business Performance by Ruth Gotian A distinguished Harvard Business School professor offers a compelling reassessment and defense of purpose as a management ethos, documenting the vast performance gains and social benefits that become possible when firms manage to get purpose right. Few business topics have aroused more skepticism in recent years than the notion of corporate purpose, and for good reason. Too many companies deploy purpose, or a reason for being, as a promotional vehicle to make themselves feel virtuous and to look good to the outside world. Some have only foggy ideas about what purpose is and conflate it with strategy and other concepts like “mission,” “vision,” and “values.” Even well-intentioned leaders don't understand purpose's full potential and engage half-heartedly and superficially with it. Outsiders spot this and become cynical about companies and the broader capitalist endeavor. Having conducted extensive field research, Ranjay Gulati reveals the fatal mistakes leaders unwittingly make when attempting to implement a reason for being. Moreover, he shows how companies can embed purpose much more deeply than they currently do, delivering impressive performance benefits that reward customers, suppliers, employees, shareholders, and communities alike. To get purpose right, leaders must fundamentally change not only how they execute it but also how they conceive of and relate to it. They must practice what Gulati calls deep purpose, furthering each organization's reason for being more intensely, thoughtfully, and comprehensively than ever before. In this authoritative, accessible, and inspiring guide, Gulati takes readers inside some of the world's most purposeful companies to understand the secrets to their successes. He explores how leaders can pursue purpose more deeply by navigating the inevitable tradeoffs more deliberately and effectively to balance between short- and long-term value; building purpose more systematically into every key organizational function to mobilize stakeholders and enhance performance; updating organizations to foster more autonomy and collaboration, which in turn allow individual employees to work more purposefully; using powerful storytelling to communicate a reason for being, arousing emotions and building a community of inspired and committed stakeholders; and building cultures that don't merely support purpose, but also allow employees to link the corporate purpose to their own personal reasons for being. As Gulati argues, a deeper engagement with purpose holds the key not merely to the well-being of individual companies but also to humanity's future. With capitalism under siege and relatively low levels of trust in business, purpose can serve as a radically new operating system for the enterprise, enhancing performance while also delivering meaningful benefits to society. It's the kind of inspired thinking that businesses—and the rest of us—urgently need.

For many people, the start of a new year is an occasion to re-examine their lives, to set new goals and to give up old habits. Making New Year's resolutions is something of a social ritual, but we see similar behaviors around other significant dates, as well--such as birthdays and anniversaries and the changing of seasons. And while it can be argued that all of these dates are arbitrary, studies show that they can still give you a head start in achieving your goals.In this episode of Choiceology with Katy Milkman, we examine the common but not always rational phenomenon whereby people divide their lives into chapters. We look at ways to leverage this phenomenon to make better choices.The episode begins on a riverbank, with a religious rite symbolizing rebirth and renewal.Next, we hear about Ray Zahab's life changing New Year's resolution. What began as a simple plan to live a healthier lifestyle ended up taking him on incredible adventures all around the world. Ray is the author of the book Running For My Life.From Ray's story of personal transformation around an auspicious date, we pivot to a related tendency for people to separate their money into mental accounts. Money, like time, is fungible--one dollar is as useful as any other dollar--and yet people often divide their money into different categories. Why?Nobel laureate and best-selling author Richard Thaler explains the value of this cognitive bias and explores some of the peculiar behaviors people exhibit when they earmark their money for different purposes. And John Beshears of the Harvard Business School describes a study that exposes this bias in the way people perceive the value of grocery store coupons.Finally, Katy Milkman offers additional tips on leveraging these temporal landmarks and personal budgets to help you stick with your resolutions.Choiceology is an original podcast from Charles Schwab.

Following World War II the American government and philanthropic foundations fundamentally remade American universities into sites for producing knowledge about the world as a collection of distinct nation-states. As neoliberal reforms took hold in the 1980s, visions of the world made popular within area studies and international studies found themselves challenged by ideas and educational policies that originated in business schools and international financial institutions. Academics within these institutions reimagined the world instead as a single global market and higher education as a commodity to be bought and sold.

Impact Hustlers proudly welcomes one of the pioneers of venture capital and impact investing, Sir Richard Cohen, or Sir Ronnie. Having been in the finance industry for decades, he now has the well-deserved distinction of being known as the Father of British Venture Capital. He has also founded investment firms and companies that are regarded as leaders in the social impact space.Sir Ronnie had an interesting childhood, leaving Egypt as a refugee at age 11 and moving to the UK. From his humble beginnings, his dedication and hard work landed him in Oxford and, later on, Harvard Business School. Interestingly, at age 53, he one day sat down with the management of Apax Partners, the investment firm he founded that now has over 50 billion dollars under management, and announced he would be leaving after seven years to focus on social issues. He was then tapped by the British Treasury to lead a task force on poverty, which led him on the path of impact. He shares how luck played a major role in his life, the valuable insights he learned throughout the years, what drove him to impact investing, and more. He also shares snippets from his book, Impact: Reshaping Capitalism to Drive Real Change, which is a worthwhile read, by the way, as well as the three major forces that are working to make the world a better place. This is truly an episode you won't want to miss.Sir Ronnie's key lessons and quotes from this episode were:“Our success or our failure, the types of challenges we have to go through are not all within our control. And once you understand that, you become a lot stronger in meeting the challenges that come your way.” (11:27)“There's a greater purpose to your being on earth than just continuing to make more money.” (17:50)“The profit motive needs to be guided by impact. Making money and not worrying about the harm you do is no longer possible.” (24:51)“Mandatory reporting, use of accounting to measure impact, and measuring both social and environmental impact. If we do that, it will be a historical frontier for capitalism and for society.” (31:06)“Bring impact into your thinking. It's the future. You will do better financially, and you will improve the world.” (35:41)“Those who refuse to understand the importance of impact for the future of their businesses will once again be left behind.” (37:40)In this episode, we also talked about:An overview of Sir Ronnie's journey, his childhood, and education (2:52)Luck and how it helped Sir Ronnie get to where he is today (10:52)Why 1998 was a memorable year for Sir Ronnie (16:06)Integrating impact into the core of every business model (24:41)Sir Ronnie's book and social impact bonds (32:39)The world in 10 years according to Sir Ronnie (36:13)Support the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/impacthustlers)

“Outstanding businesses are built by outstanding people.” - Divya Gugnani   Divya Gugnani, CEO and Co-Founder of Wander Beauty, spent nearly 20 years searching for beauty essentials that could keep up with her on-the-go lifestyle.   After earning her B.S. from Cornell University and M.B.A. from Harvard Business School, Divya began her career in investment banking at Goldman Sachs before moving on to private equity and venture capital at Investcorp International and FirstMark Capital. A self-proclaimed ‘accidental entrepreneur,' she later left the finance world after selling her first business, and, bitten by the startup bug, went on to become a serial entrepreneur. After co-founding multiple companies and having children, she found her former beauty rituals tossed to the wayside as she became more time-starved than ever.   Balancing a thriving career and motherhood left Divya applying concealer during her morning subway commute and touching up her lipstick in between meetings in the backseat of a cab. She soon realized that her beauty products and routine weren't made for beauty in motion: There were too many products, an arsenal of “must-have” tools, and products were housed in packaging that was too heavy, bulky, and fragile to take beyond her vanity. She needed products that saved time in her day, space in her beauty bag, and that never sacrificed on performance.   Thus, Wander Beauty was born. Launched in 2015 with Wander Beauty creates effortless essentials you reach for every day, wherever you wander. Each essential is co-created with our community and enriched with clean, globally sourced ingredients that work with your skin, not against it. With over 30 prestigious beauty awards, Wander Beauty has a loyal following of celebrities, top journalists, and notable beauty and style influencers.   Learn more about Divya at WanderBeauty.com.

Grab a glass of eggnog and cozy up to this holiday edition of WireTaps! Alex and Graham tackle holiday deliberations on R1 results and task-lists for R2, while also taking time to closely examine the latest employment reports from Harvard Business School and the Tuck School of Business. Then, our hosts move into the WireTaps portion of the show with two ApplyWire candidates targeting R2 and one DecisionWire candidate making a tough call... First up in the batch is a military candidate who appears to have a very impressive set of experiences. While their GPA is decent, Alex and Graham wonder if the GRE (323) is going to be their weakest link, and whether it might make things a bit of an uphill battle at the very best programs. Our hosts also make some last minute recommendations regarding target programs. Next up, a candidate from China who has completed their masters degree, secured an outstanding GMAT score (770), worked several years in government, and transitioned to a serial novelist. Alex and Graham marvel at the list of highly compelling ingredients, but worry about this applicants ability to 'make the recipe'. Finally, from DecisionWire, our hosts look at a US-based candidate who largely targeted non-US MBA programs, and is now determining which is their best option for work in luxury goods in Europe in the short term and a return to the US in the longer-term. This episode was recorded in Cornwall, England and Paris, France. It was produced in West Philadelphia by the always cheery Dennis Crowley.

— The factors governing success in personal relationships are complex. It's not simply a matter of whether the other parties in the relationship are “right” for you. It's recognizing the multitude of factors - ranging from the personality types of those with whom you're in relationship to their embedded notions of what's most important in those relationships: affection? — emotional support? shared vales? security? etc.). Becoming aware of these factors, and making adjustments that better align you with your relationship partners (whether in work or in personal life), Is key to more success in navigating them and having them serve as motivators rather than as demotivators. Valeria Teles interviews Jim Weinstein— A Life And Career Counselor, Marriage And Family Therapist, And Speaker Brought up in the New York suburbs (Eastchester), Jim Weinstein attended Wesleyan University in Middletown Connecticut where he majored in Political Science. Graduating magna cum laude Phi Beta Kappa Jim was accepted to Harvard Business School where he concentrated in marketing. He graduated with distinction and thereafter began working in New York for one of America's largest ad agencies, Benton and Bowles, as an account executive. Jim rose quickly in the organization, being named Vice President four years later. In the subsequent 15 years he worked at several other major agencies, including Wells Rich Greene as Executive Vice-President and Chiat/Day as Director of Account Management. Among the clients he serviced were Procter and Gamble, Sony, Coca-Cola, Bayer, Mitsubishi, Fisher-Price, and Energizer (the bunny was developed under my tenure as the lead account manager). In his 40s, Jim embarked on a process of inner work and exploration that led him to move from New York to Los Angeles and to ultimately discover the path of his current career. It started with Jim running a community-based clinical trials organization, Search Alliance, and then co-founding the internet's first psychotherapist search site, 4Therapy.com. He enrolled in Antioch University's clinical psychology program, earning a Master's degree and accumulating 3000 hours of internship training, after which he opened a successful private practice in Beverly Hills. Missing the seasons and the intellectual environment of the East, Jim moved to DC in 2005 making a professional pivot to emphasize career guidance. In the time he had been there he has been fortunate enough to build a thriving practice working with a very diverse, motivated, and intelligent group of clients. Jim is proud to have helped many hundreds of clients to dramatically improve their career and life satisfaction.

When the Gandhi family sold its business to Fortune 500 company Akzo Nobel, she was asked to remain its leader, and became Akzo Nobel Non-Stick Coating's Global Vice President of Housewares.
