When Pramod Iyengar returned to school after working for several years as a manufacturing engineer with United Technologies, he was ready to change careers. The young engineer headed back to the University of Michigan, where as an undergraduate he had earned a B.S. in mechanical engineering. However, this time he had a business degree in mind Post graduation with an MBA in hand, Iyengar landed at Intel Corp., where he had the opportunity to join a “very efficient and very well-structured finance team,” he explains. For his part, Iyengar says Intel gave him the opportunity to learn not only the discipline of finance, but also how to use financial data and analysis to influence and improve operations across the company. Intel also offered the opportunity to move into a variety of other areas. "Employees just had to take the initiative and take advantage of them," comments Iyengar. At Intel, Iyengar began as a finance manager with the distribution channel and soon became a senior financial analyst with the microprocessor products group. Looking back, he credits the chip maker with regularly bringing together finance professionals from across the company. Says Iyengar: "They would share best practices and strategies for using finance to improve decision-making in other areas, like accounting and sales."

Drew Bartkiewicz grew up close to West Point, had an older brother who went there and so it was a natural to attend there also. It wasn’t easy. He came up short in his initial application and spent what he calls, “the best year of my life”, attending a prep school to get over the bar. He studied aerospace engineering and learned that real creativity isn’t open-ended and willy-nilly, it’s a structured, disciplined path that leads to a revolutionary development. Graduating and sent to Northern Italy in the 82nd Airborne, Drew overcame his fear of heights, admittedly because he wanted to live in Italy! And it was a real life lesson in learning to live in the present, as the Italian people were expert at doing so. Drew served in the Gulf War and stayed after to set up a protective zone for the Kurds, another incredible life experience for him. He left in 1992 when he was accepted into the MBA program at Yale, graduating in 1994. This put him closer to family and home, and put him square in the middle of business. He joined United Technologies, which put him in business development in four locations around the world. He caught the software bug in 1999 and that has turned out to be his world. Calling himself in “perpetual adjustment”, Drew has stayed agile, moving and always looking to solve problems. His first company was Lettrs, seeking to authenticate mobile messages and by being both different and mobile, they attracted customers. Lettrs morphed into Patriapps really an incubator to start, grow and spin off software companies. One of the big takeaways from Drew’s experience? When taking investment money, the sense of honor to be successful and create a return for investors is higher in the Veterans community than all others.

Andy Goldstrom is a business strategist, B2B growth expert, professor of entrepreneurship, and author. Over his career, he has built and sold fast-growing companies, including two that made it on the Inc. 500.   Today, Andy shares his entrepreneurial journey and what he has learned about being a good leader. Specifically, he's going to teach us why leaders should always speak last.    Andy's Entrepreneurial Journey   After Andy finished his undergraduate degree in computer science, he started working at GTE, which is now Verizon, but eventually discovered it wasn't the right for him.   “It just took a lot to make decisions and get things done and add value,” Andy explained. “There was a lot of reorganization going on outside of my span of control or purview at such a young age, and I realized early on that it wasn't the ultimate fit for me.” He eventually learned through experience that he would excel in leadership positions.    Around the time he left GTE, companies were starting to outsource a lot more, especially in real estate. Andy saw a window of opportunity there and became the managing director and partner at USI, where they made a company's real estate an asset as opposed to a cost center through strategic planning, transaction management, designing the construction, legal review, and database administration, and then sold it to the chief financial officer (CFO).    Eric explained success is a lot about timing with an entrepreneurial venture. “The timing was perfect. We actually were able to get a few customers who had very good interest and wanted to sign up with us before we even launched. So we were able to break even within six months,” he said.     As the company grew they were able to expand with their clients and work for companies such as Delta Airlines and United Technologies. However, once he saw changes in the marketplace as more companies wanted to go global and asked for more facility management, he decided to monetize the company and sold it to Johnson Controls.   “After Johnson Controls bought us, I became the executive in charge of a big region for Johnson Controls, including the facility management business, and I learned a lot . . . The number of people and the amount of revenue grew substantially in terms of what I oversaw and was $50 million worth of business,” Andy said.    Eventually, Andy left the company and searched for another business to help grow. He took over as the founder of a waste recycling company and helped their revenue grow 30% and their profit grows 70% within two years.    Andy helped both USI and the waste management company achieve Inc. 500 status.    Through his extensive journey in leadership and management roles, Andy continues to help businesses grow and adapt their business models as things change over the years.   Becoming a Leader   Through Andy's entrepreneurial journey, he learned a lot about what it takes to be a successful leader. When I asked him what his biggest home run was, he told me it was inspiring others.    “It was an honor and a pleasant surprise when, more than once, people have said, ‘You're the type of leader I want to work for,'” Andy said. “If you're able to help others achieve their goals, and in turn, help yourself, there's no better achievement than that.”   One key factor that makes Andy such a great leader is understanding that a leader is only as good as their team.   “[I understood] that if I wanted to sell something, I was only as good as the people who were working with me and that I was a servant to them,” Andy said. “I'm not the smoothest talker, but I am very trustworthy and I deliver what I say I'm going to do.”   In order for a business to succeed and effectively monetize, the entire team needs to be working together with the same goal in mind. An effective leader helps his team learn and encourages them to share ideas.    “If you're going to grow it, you have to have the right people who are incentivized and developed in the right way so that they can do the work, so you can grow and scale your company. I always tried to set a good example for that,” he said.    Learning to Talk Last   A good leader should talk last. Let everyone share their point of view first, and then we can share ours. Not only does that allow us to listen before we talk, but it allows us to gather valuable feedback from our team members. It makes the feedback that we give much more effective when we fully listen to everyone's ideas first.    When I asked Andy what his biggest mistake was, he told me it was speaking too soon in a conference meeting.    There was a time he was leading a senior team in a conference reviewing financials. During the conference, the CFO was presenting, and Andy felt like he knew what the right plan of action was based on the presentation. He ended up cutting off the CFO and didn't give him the time he deserved for the work he had put into the presentation. This mistake impacted their relationship, and it took time to rebuild their trust.    “You have to be the last person in the room to talk,” Andy said. “You have to let everybody else have their say. That doesn't mean that they're the ultimate decision-maker. But everybody needs to have a contribution because that's what allows a company to build. It was a tough lesson but a good lesson to learn.”    One of the things I like best about speaking last is, if someone comes up with the idea you are going to say before you say it, you can give them credit for it. As a leader, this helps everyone on the team feel like a valuable player. The more comfortable and valuable everyone feels on our team, the more likely it will be that they will share other ideas in the future. A business should be run on collaboration, not a one-man-band.    In Andy's consulting business, he works with many great people and leaders on the teams he is a part of. They all give great answers because they know the industry, but often they may have their own bias they are worried about sharing. If we can create an environment where everyone's ideas will come to the forefront, we are doing it right.    “I find that transparency, the ability to understand the goals of the company and how everybody's contributing to it, and giving people [the opportunity] to bubble up ideas, creates innovation,” Andy said.   Once we create innovation and trust in our teams and businesses, we will have the confidence of knowing that when adversity hits, such as COVID-19, we don't have to carry the weight of it by ourselves. We will have an incredible team to help us continue to operate in the toughest conditions.    Another advantage to speaking last is that everyone will feel heard. Even when someone shares an idea we don't agree with, at least we have shown them we are willing to hear their ideas. We can also take the opportunity of the disagreement and better explain to them why we are doing things the way we are. It's a lot easier to swallow feedback if you know the person at least listened to what you had to say before they made that contrary decision.   Key Takeaways   Thank you so much Andy for sharing your stories and knowledge with us today. Here are some of my key takeaways from this episode:   Success is a lot about timing and being prepared to seize the opportunity when the time comes. Leaders need to know how to adapt to changes in the market, just as we are teaching with tectonic shifts. Good leaders build trust by doing what they say they are going to do. A leader is only as good as their team.  A leader should talk last. Talking last builds trust, openness gives room for feedback and helps everyone feel heard.    Connect with Andy   If you enjoyed this interview and want to learn more about Andy, listen to part two of this episode or connect with him on his LinkedIn.

Back in 2015, after nearly two decades of diligent career building across United Technologies, Paul Lundstrom fixed his career-builder’s gaze upon the span of companies known as the Fortune 500. Like many seasoned finance executives, who spent the balance of their careers inside large enterprise companies, Lundstrom had to confront the obvious truth that for every company the CFO office has only one occupant. By all accounts, the Fortune 500 was a worthy target for Lundstrom’s CFO ambitions, but here too the number of CFO roles quickly diminish when one considers the industry-specific focus that spans the arch of Lundstrom’s career and so many others.   It’s here within this realm of heightened ambition and shrinking opportunity that finance executives often tell us they dared to add one of the most satisfying chapters of their CFO careers. And so it is for Lundstrom. Last fall, when Lundstrom stepped into a CFO position at Flex, a $24 billion contract manufacturer – the UT veteran was concluding a near four stint as CFO of Aerojet Rocketdyne, a $2 billion aerospace and defense company. For his part, Lundstrom stepped into Aerojet’s CFO role while the company was short a full time controller and in the midst of restating its financials. The turnaround chapter is one Lundstrom has no doubt found to be most satisfying.

Today's guest is Paul Eremenko, Co-Founder and CEO of Universal Hydrogen.Before Universal Hydrogen, Paul served as Senior Vice President and CTO of United Technologies and CTO of Airbus. When he co-founded Universal Hydrogen, Paul felt hydrogen was the only solution the industry has to meet the Paris Agreement's goals and decarbonize.Universal Hydrogen is an end-to-end fuel logistics company making hydrogen-powered commercial flight a near-term reality. The aerospace and aviation industry is decarbonizing too slowly to meet the Paris Agreement objectives. Paul and his team are tackling two of the biggest challenges in hydrogen flight: creating a distribution infrastructure and kick-starting demand for hydrogen. To distribute hydrogen, Universal Hydrogen is rethinking how we can transport it. The company specially designs lightweight aviation-certified hydrogen capsules that are compatible with the existing infrastructure and freight networks. Universal Hydrogen is retrofitting regional airplanes with conversion kits necessary to utilize hydrogen as fuel. It is building a roadmap for other aircraft companies to adopt these designs. Universal Hydrogen partners with many companies, from freight logistics to fuel cell development to aircraft makers and modifiers. Backed by Trucks, Jeff Schox, Reilly Brennan, Plug Power, and smaller investors, Universal Hydrogen is paving the way for zero-emission aviation. Pauls walks me through how he transitioned to working in green hydrogen and the gaps that Universal Hydrogen is filling within the aviation industry. Paul explains why hydrogen is the best fuel for zero-emission flight, the barriers to hydrogen adoption, and key startups Universal Hydrogen partners with. Paul and I also discuss the stakeholders, funding to date, and the future of the company. This episode is a must-listen for anyone interested in learning more about how to decarbonize aviation.Enjoy the show!You can find me on twitter @jjacobs22 or @mcjpod and email at info@myclimatejourney.co, where I encourage you to share your feedback on episodes and suggestions for future topics or guests.Episode recorded February 3rd, 2021To learn more about Universal Hydrogen, visit their website: https://www.hydrogen.aero/

And they can spend a lot of time focusing on being relevant, and acquiring customers that really are and should be considered distractions, maybe distractions for now, and maybe not in the future. But it really is important to prioritize your efforts.” - Chris Hopf  “For some companies, there's seasonality to how they buy, and this isn't only their initial purchase, their initial decision to do business with you, but what are they most likely to pay to expand with you?” - Chris Hopf  “What I found is sometimes people do a relatively good job, some better than others around understanding their advantages. But they don't go to that next step around, 'Why now?'. What are you going to do to compel action?” - Chris Hopf  “What's key to creating a sense of urgency is creating a sense of opportunity, you create that sense of opportunity, and you frame that well in their minds in terms that they understand and relate to their business and the outcomes they care about. And then that's how you're going to create that sense of urgency. But what's key is that it needs to be directed back at your solution over other alternatives.”  - Chris Hopf  “People actually don't spend much time understanding with clarity an honest assessment of their advantages over alternatives.” - Chris Hopf  “A lot of times when people reach out to somebody like me, is they think they have a pricing problem. And oftentimes, they actually just have a value messaging opportunity, right. So, they aren't doing a very good job of not only communicating their value that will resonate with their prospects and customers, but they don't do a very good job of communicating their advantages.”    Connect with Chris Hopf: LinkedIn  pricingwire.com    Connect with Mark Stiving:    Email: mark@impactpricing.com LinkedIn

Listen in as the CXR community discusses a wide range of topics focused on attracting, engaging and retaining the best talent. We're glad you're here. Chris Hoyt 0:16Hello, everybody. This is Chris Hoyt with CareerXroads. And I have some fun folks with me today. And this is kind of an interesting piece. So we have Molly from Otis, we have Curtis from Elanco. And of course, we have Barb our own Barb Ruess is on. But it's kind of an interesting approach. So typically, what happens at the end of one of our CXR meetings is the team the CXR team, jumps right off the call and jumps on another call to do a recap of how we think it went. And did we have any big takeaways and what we feel like we might want to do differently, or what really, really spoke to us. And what I usually walk away with is like two pages of notes that are scribbles that we then sort of work through and decipher. But we thought this might be a fun time for us to open it up and bring in some of our meeting participants, and leaders who actually were in the meeting to get their insights as well. So Molly, I'm just I want to I want you to just really quick, if you just introduce yourself for a second, and you know who you are, what you do at Otis, how long you've been there. And then Curtis will do the same thing with you. And we'll just let's just have a conversation about how we think it went. Molly Nuhring, Otis 1:24Yeah, sure. Um, so nice to meet all of you. My name is Molly Noreen, I lead talent acquisition at Otis elevators. So in addition to all the other fun things, we spun this year from United Technologies, and became an independent company, and listed on the New York Stock Exchange, about two weeks after COVID. So it's been one of those years, which has been absolutely nuts. But I've been at Otis for about five and a half years. And it's been really, really interesting the last nine months. So thank you for having me. Chris Hoyt 1:57We're glad to have you. Yeah, it has not been a boring year for many of the organizations know that Curtis, I've known you through a few iterations of organizations. Good, it's good. We have you both on here this company interesting. Curtis Dorsey, Elanco 2:12Indeed, so Curtis Dorsey, Elanco, animal health, I've been with the organization, depending on how you count the time, 23,23 years, we actually were formally part of Eli Lilly and company, we actually spun out, you know, about 18 months ago, and then decided to, to acquire an organization two thirds our size, and launch workday and do all those things in the last couple of years. So, so I can, I can appreciate where Otis is Molly, and I'm a global talent acquisition for Elanco. And have been doing so for the last three and a half years. Chris Hoyt 2:51Fantastic. Now, today's meeting we did was diversity, equity, and inclusion. And as you guys know, historically, we have always woven some element of DNI into our topical meetings. And the topics are usually sourcing, branding, executive recruiting, leadership, you name it. But we felt with everything going on. And we made this decision, I guess, gosh, some eight, nine months ago, to begin building out meetings that were dedicated just to the UI, and the challenges that organizations are having. And so that's the meeting that we just wrapped up. And Curtis, I'm going to pick on you because you went last any any big takeaways. Like what how did how did you walk out of that meeting? Feeling? Curtis Dorsey, Elanco 3:34Yeah, I apologize for some of the background noise. It was perfectly quiet in my house until just a moment ago.

Michael Mulcahy is the Chief Executive and the Founder of Ascalon; and is the inventor of the company’s innovative technology. After graduation from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a degree in Materials Engineering, Mr. Mulcahy began his professional career with the US Navy as an aircraft carrier pilot line officer. Upon leaving the US Navy after twenty-two years as a Captain, he held Executive positions at Tyco and United Technologies. Building on these experiences, he formed Ascalon to focus on non-toxic, environmentally sustainable technologies that promote human health and well-being. The origins that guided the idea and creation for Ascalon’s base technology began in the Navy by attempting to solve the challenges to deliver a non-toxic liquid that is universally effective as a decontaminant to mitigate chemical and biological weapon toxins. From that experience, it became clear that there were much larger applications for disinfectants, sanitizers, and cleaning products in substantial and diverse markets that were collectively underserved by inferior performance using toxic, hazardous, and polluting products.  Michael’s research led to the invention and development of a series of products made entirely from botanically-derived and food grade components that out perform all disinfectant products available today. The core of this technology product is distinguished by its unique capability to remove biofilm. By removing the biofilm, the remaining harmful microorganisms are either removed or destroyed in the process. The target markets served by Ascalon’s technology are: healthcare, food processing, hospitality, institutional hygiene, hospitality, athletics and fitness, schools and universities, health and wellness industry, and consumer products. The aggregated annual sales volume for these market segments exceeds $25 billion globally; $14 billion in US markets. Ascalon’s product portfolio consists of multipurpose cleaning products, hospital grade disinfectants, sterilizers for surfaces and surgical instruments, and wound care applications. Future prototype products now in development include skin healing and rejuvenating applications for healthcare and beauty products market segments.

Today House Democrats initiated their first hearings on special counsel Robert Mueller's report on alleged Russian election interference and ties to the Trump campaign, in a test of the party's strategy of building public support before possibly launching impeachment proceedings. They are also expected to take the momentous step of authorizing Congress to go to court to enforce subpoenas to President Trump's attorney general and the former White House counsel, setting up a clash that could also help redefine the relationship between the president and Congress. Today the House Judiciary Committee is hearing from John Dean, the Nixon White House counsel who pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice in the Watergate scandal, and former U.S. attorneys as part of a hearing on the lessons of the Mueller report. We must ask the question again, are the Democrats overplaying their hand with these ongoing investigations or impeachment or no impeachment, are they doing the peoples work?Trump says tariffs on Mexico suspended indefinitely but according to Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO), Trump's use of tariffs as a driving force in his negotiations with Mexico is also meant to be a message for China. In addition, he spoke about the forthcoming G20 meeting, stressing that if Chinese President Xi Jinping does not meet the US leader at the event, tariffs on $300 billion worth of Chinese goods will become immediately effective. Really, Trump thinks he can pressure Xi into meeting him at the G20? First, Trump is really boxing himself into a corner. Trump also mentioned Asian tech giant Huawei, emphasizing that it could be part of a trade agreement between Washington and Beijing. I thought Huawei was a security threat. How do you incorporate a security threat into your trade agreement?United Technologies and Raytheon say they are joining forces in one of the biggest mergers of the year. The companies are calling it a "merger of equals," with the new company being an equal combination of shares between the two companies. In an interview Monday, Trump voiced his concern about the merger that would create an aerospace and defense powerhouse, saying it could kill competition. "I'm a little concerned about United Technologies (UTX) and Raytheon (RTN)," the president said during a phone interview on CNBC's "Squawk Box." the military-industrial complex wasn't monopolized enough, we get another mega-company that will feed on taxpayers' money.
