Show Notes: In this episode, I reflect on a recent conversation I had with a rising senior PrepWeller (KIna). What started off as a brainstorming session for her college essay, took an unexpected turn. As I dug into her background, likes/dislikes, and aspirations, we came to the conclusion that Computer Science may not be the path for her. This came as a surprise, as she has always thought of herself as a Computer Science person. What was her true calling? How did she handle this tension?

Welcome to Strategy Skills episode 253, an episode with Emeritus Professor at UCLA Anderson, Richard Rumelt. Get Richard's book here: https://amzn.to/3OrNfuK In this episode, Richard iterated the real meaning of strategy, which many companies today confuse with a list of their goals and ambitions. Strategy is problem-solving – a clever way of dealing with a challenge, opponent, or problem. It also involves selecting which battle you fight because you cannot fight them all. As a great strategist, you need to select battles that you can win. Richard also explained the crux or the biggest challenge that companies need to identify, emphasize, and concentrate their resources on until it is fixed or solved. As Richard mentioned in this episode, “the primary thing about strategy is that it is about a concentration of resources. It is about focus.” Richard Rumelt received his doctorate from the Harvard Business School in 1972, having previously earned a Master of Science in electrical engineering from UC Berkeley. He worked as a systems engineer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratories and served on the faculty of the Harvard Business School. He joined the UCLA faculty in 1976. He also served as a faculty at INSEAD, France for three years. At INSEAD, Rumelt headed the Corporate Renewal Initiative, a research-intervention center devoted to the study and practice of corporate transformation. Rumelt was president of the Strategic Management Society from 1995 to 1998. He received the Irwin Prize for his book Strategy, Structure, and Economic Performance. In 1997, he was appointed Telecom Italia Strategy Fellow, a position he held until April 2000. He has won teaching awards at UCLA and received a best paper prize in 1997 from the Strategic Management Journal.

As a society, we've certainly made some progress in honoring the contribution of the LGBTQ workforce. But, there are still minds, hearts, teams, and companies that do not engage and where people, irrespective of what group they identify with, do not experience psychological safety. And so we thought that during the Pride Month, it would be more relevant than ever to release the interview with the mother of psychological safety, Amy Edmondson. Amy is the Novartis Professor of Leadership and Management at the Harvard Business School with a long standing academic career. She's the author of The Fearless Organization and in this podcast, we explore why the fear of taking interpersonal risks will destroy your culture and any DEI efforts you might have undertaken.

He is the founder and honorary chairman of Simon-Kucher & Partners, the world's leading price consultancy with over 1,700 employees and 42 offices worldwide. Simon is the author of 40 books in 30 different languages, including worldwide bestseller Hidden Champions, first published by Harvard Business School in 1996. Since Simon's introduction of the term “Hidden Champion" almost thirty years ago, business leaders have been fascinated with these 3,400 successful companies – roughly half of which are German – who, despite being midsize companies, often have global market shares of over 50 percent. These hidden champions are behind Germany's success in exports and a differentiator in how business is done in the United States. Simon's recent work focuses on how the United States and other countries can learn from Germany's hidden champions.

We're often told not to take advice blindly, and this is especially true for productivity advice. The rise-and-grind schedule might work for a Lark, but it's a recipe for a disaster if you're a Night Owl. Sourcing ideas from people you admire is a great start, but you need to run your own experiments to figure out which ideas actually work for you. That is, unless your partner is a chronic experimenter! Frances Frei, a professor at Harvard Business School, doesn't run experiments because she doesn't need to. Her wife, Anne Morriss, runs them herself, and shares the best practices and ideas with Frances. As well as being Frances' wife and most valuable productivity resource, Anne is a leadership couch and the Executive Founder of The Leadership Consortium. Frances and Anne share their favourite tools for staying focused, productive and present, including their yearly “visioning” process, their methods for building trust, and the best career advice they;ve ever received.

Prior to founding UXReactor, Satyam Kantamneni led various in-house design organizations such as Citrix and PayPal. He is also an alumnus of Harvard Business School. While at Harvard, Satyam realized that most businesses aren't leveraging the full power of User Experience (UX) Design as an engine for strategic growth. So, he resolved to change that.

UXReactor has enabled its clients-partners to generate hundreds of millions in additional revenue from user-cen-tered innovation.

Don't worry about trying to figure out where and how you will end up 10 years from now … Don't let the destination mess with the journey and enjoy every phase of the journey and plan for every sub phase of the journey. But don't plan for the big part because you don't know where you will end up and what will happen, what resources, what the market … Don't try to control them, don't try to predict them just work in the first quarter or two ”…[Listen for More] Click Here for Show Notes To Listen or to Get the Show Notes go to https://wp.me/p6Tf4b-nfx
Hey everyone - the Inside Influence team and I are taking an eight week sabbatical this winter (or summer if you're in the Northern Hemisphere) to generally reset, recalibrate and refill our creative tanks.For many of us, myself included, that means traveling across the world to see family members where it's been far too long between hugs.To keep you fueled while we're gone, we've traveled back through the archives and pulled out four of our favorite Inside Influence episodes of all time. I can also hand on heart say that each of these has, in some way, radically changed how I show up, lead and influence.If you're new to the Inside Influence crew, enjoy the ride. If you're a long time listener, these are definitely conversations worth listening to twice.Stay safe and we'll see you back with a brand new season in August.Today's Guest Frances Frei is an American academic and author. She is the UPS Foundation Professor of Service Management and Senior Associate Dean for Executive Education at Harvard Business School. She is also the author of the recently released book: ‘Unleashed: The Unapologetic Leaders Guide to Empowering Everyone Around You'. On top of that, she also leaped into Silicon Valley and became the very first Senior Vice-President for Leadership and Strategy at Uber, brought in at a time when Uber was under fire from pretty much every corner of the planet. Her job description? To try and restore trust at a time when it was at an all-time catastrophic low. Her first decision in that role says a lot about who she is – committing to wear an Uber T-shirt every day until the people working alongside her were as proud to wear it as she was… but more on that later. What brought her first into my world was actually her TED talk ‘How to Build and Rebuild Trust'. Where her insightful and – more than anything else – practical views on building trust in a world where it's in short supply, became the first time I began to view trust as something tangible – that we can all build – quickly and predictably.You'll LearnUnapologetic leadership – what it is, what it looks like and why it has nothing to do with refusing to take responsibility – in fact quite the opposite.Devotion – yep that word again. If it makes you feel uncomfortable then stick with it. What does it take to be deeply devoted to the ‘wild success' of another human being? More success than they could possibly achieve on their own. Then – if we can do it once – which we can – how do we take that impact and harness it to create a cascade effect – where it goes on to transform a team, an entire organisation (reference again her time at Uber) or a whole Nation. The taking and giving of radical responsibility The Trust Triangle; what the three points of the triangle are, how to achieve them and how to maintain them.Leadership is hard at the best of times – in the middle of a pandemic, on the edge of a recession, when you're miles away from those you're trying to serve and support. I'm not sure it gets much harder. If I took anything from this conversation, it's the calm and wholehearted way in which Frances approaches the tough stuff. If nothing else, I hope that carries with you into your day.Subscribe to and Review the Inside Influence PodcastThank you for tuning into this week's episode.

Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia, by 70%, and is the number one most costly disease - “It's not because its happening more often it's because of bad lifestyle and medications that prolong life but don't get rid of pathological processes that cause dementia so you have a whole lot of people living with this devastating disease.”This week we speak to THE ultimate brain-powered couple! Neuroscientists Dr Dean and Ayesha Sherzai are a phenomenal pair, aside from the impressive list of credentials after both of their names, they have dedicated their lives to behavioural change models and brain health initiatives. Co-director of the Alzheimer's Prevention Program at Loma Linda University, Dr Dean completed two fellowships at National Institutes of Health, and UC San Diego. He also has 2 masters degrees in clinical research and epidemiology, an executive leadership degree from Harvard Business School, and a PhD in Healthcare Leadership. And just when you thought that was already enough achievements for one person, in 2002, Dr Dean was asked by the World Bank to help lead their health delivery project in Afghanistan. While there, he was asked by President Karzai to become the Deputy Minister of Health and focused on bringing together all the stakeholders around the vision of rapid delivery of the basic package of health services and women's empowerment. This process was deemed by LANCET as the most successful plan in any post-conflict county. This plan also helped empower more than 20,000 Afghan women by making them the only source of health care in the most remote of communities. In 2013, he helped create the Afghan Health Initiative in order to empower the Afghan diaspora with their own health. Currently, along with his wife Dr. Ayesha, they are leading the largest community-based brain health initiative in the world through their online work in Brain Health Revolution.Dr. Ayesha, also a neurologist and co-director of the Alzheimer's Prevention Program at Loma Linda University, where she leads the Lifestyle Program for the Prevention of Neurological Diseases. Is also a trained plant-based culinary artist.She holds a master's in advanced sciences from UCSD. Subsequent to completing her residency Dr. Ayesha completed a fellowship in vascular neurology from Columbia University and is currently enrolled to finish a PhD in women's leadership.We think it's safe to say that when it comes to brains, these pair know what they are talking about!“There are good stresses and bad stresses. Bad stress is when you are involved in activities that are not driven by your purposes… you don't have a runway that is yours. Whereas good stress is based around activities that do drive your purpose… our brains are made to be active, it craves to be pushed and challenged around its purpose…”In this episode, we discuss lifestyle choices, nutrition, purpose, Alzheimers, dementia, food that fuel your brain, activities that fuel your brain and, the data to support it.It truly is an amazing episode we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!Lots of love,Dave & SteveTo learn more about Dr's Sherzai check out their website: https://teamsherzai.com/And their latest book: The 30 Day Alzheimer's SolutionsProduced by Sara Fawsitt and Sean Cahill See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Are you struggling to create a simple strategy for your business? Then don't miss Felix Oberholzer-Gee, faculty member at Harvard Business School in the Strategy Unit, and author of the recent book on strategy: Better, Simpler Strategy, on this week's episode of The Melting Pot. In Felix's new book, he shows readers how to create value based strategy with their service or product. Not in the sense of making customers or employees happy, but in so much as - creating a product or service that delivers so much value, people are willing to pay more for it.The simple truth of the matter, says Felix, is that business and financial success boils down to imagination. Finding new ways to serve your customers or employees better will always yield better business results. But it's amazing how many businesses have forgotten this simple strategy in their quest to be successful. So, if you're overthinking your business strategy, or you think you have no place to think strategically, think again. To find out more, download and listen to this latest episode.

Because I've recently spent months searching for good job applicants, I was intrigued by a Harvard Business Review article. This article identified a pool of hidden talent that is typically being overlooked. The research conducted by Harvard Business School and Accenture discovered that automated hiring platforms often screen out qualified job seekers. These job applicants ... The post The Hidden Talent Pool appeared first on Unconventional Business Network.

Show Notes: In this episode, I reflect on the dangers of allowing phones to replace books in the hands of our children. Left unchecked, this is a crisis in the making. It's happening slowly, and right under our noses. Over the last 8 years, I've witnessed a gradual shift away from books and toward phones. Given the commercial incentives to keep students locked into their screens, this is no surprise. I have also observed a corresponding drop in competitiveness in students wishing to attend top tier colleges. Phones have become the primary source of communication, entertainment, and news gathering. Books have been pushed aside as anachronistic and antiquated. This will not end well.

Lydia holds an undergraduate degree from Columbia University in New York, and an MBA from the Harvard Business School. www.lydiahatton.comIn this episode, Lydia discusses the physiology of the brain as the largest super computer on the planet, between our ears. We can access more of its power and potential when we work with our subconscious. The subconscious harbors patterns, complexes and other ingrained behaviors that dictate most of our responses to life. When we access subconscious content, transformation occurs that frees us from life long limiting patterns.The current scientific understanding is that 5% of our minds are actively conscious, and that 95% of our minds are run by subconscious programming which starts even before birth. Lydia explains hypnosis and Rapid Transformational Therapy and why they work. When in hypnosis you are in complete control. Hypnosis is like a sleep of the nervous system, yet you are very aware of all that is occurring. Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) is a new model of therapy which uses Neuroscience, Hypnotherapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). RTT is used to address and resolve issues within one to three sessions by identifying the root cause of beliefs which may be informing the mind to behave, act, or believe things in a manner that we do not want.
