So I loved talking with Heather Dominick today. It was such an interesting conversation. And what I noticed is that all of the things that Heather's suggested, sort of acceptance, and all of this is a part of improving feedback loops. We don't want people to be overwhelmed because we want them to take the information. We want them to be able to sha…
 
I love Melissa's spirit. I love that she talked about experimenting. And you know, of course, that's near and dear to my heart. And the thing that I loved about it so much is that there was a clear intention behind it. We knew what we wanted to change. We wanted to change the way the hiring process felt in both directions. She also wanted to have b…
 
Well, I've been talking with Mark Sherkey, and I've loved our conversation. And I love that he differentiated between strategy and plans because I kind of hate strategic plans. It's like they are out of date. The second is that you do them because you've made a plan based on the current condition, but then your goals need to change because every ti…
 
It was great to be here with Dr. Carol Scott. And I love these ideas that are super practical that she shared.

I first learned of Katelyn Magnuson in the same way as many others: when her 1 minute video on the flexibility of her business went viral on TikTok. In this video, she was explaining how she and her employees work 32 hour work weeks and no more. For obvious reasons, I was dying to talk with her about this and invite you to listen! I was thrilled to…
 
It was just such a compelling interview. Nicki, she's so interesting. I'm left pondering this idea of whether or not leaders can have bad days. I think one of the things that we bring to organizations as leaders is that bright-eyed bushy-tailed energy not all the time and not in a cloying way, and not in a fake way. There's some authenticity around…
 
In this episode, I speak with Melanie Parish of The Experimental Leader book, The Experimental Leader Academy, and the Experimental Leader podcast! We had a lovely chat about the nature of experiments, why humans are wary of experiments, and what it looks like to experiment or support experimentation as a leader!

It was so great connecting with Dr. Jeanne Michele. I loved how it comes down to deep listening. And then, authentically speaking. When I think about the experimental leader and feedback loops, those are the heart. Have good feedback loops, both in your personal life and your work life and leadership. It's the way that information flows. So I chall…
 
Have you ever had an idea that just wouldn't leave you alone - and you don't even know where it came from? Have you ever been in a meeting and something you heard just didn't feel right - but you were afraid to speak up because you had no "data" to prove you were right? Your intuition might be screaming at you! Shoshanna French hears stories like t…
 
I talk about experimenting as a leader all the time, but I think marketing is one of the purest places because we attach dollars to our marketing, and we're used to track so we can use some of the ideas that we employ in marketing. When we do other thought leadership in organizations, we can think about what we want, what we're trying, and what we …

There are many different ways to get to innovation and use things like religion and spirituality as teasers or flirts from the world to revitalize our leadership and deepen our leadership. And to think about the idea of alleviating suffering is an exciting way to take some of the charges out of the ways that we need to change. The show's guest in t…

We spend so much time creating our vision and our mission for our organizations. And that's all great because we have to do that as leaders. I think of values as the filter that we put those things through because they're really like the spice, and the flavor and the feel of how you're going to do things as a leader. Everything we do gets filtered …

I've been thinking about how leaders can feel good about their leadership. And so many times, we're in a learning mode or growing mode. And as soon as we start to learn some new things and try to implement them, we find ourselves sort of falling into some imposter syndrome or finding ourselves feeling uncertain about the path that we're on. Love th…

So, when we're innovating, we're in a period of intense change. And the more we constrain people about how they're going to solve the problem, the less chance we have to great mind-blowing innovation.
