People First - All Else Follows

Business & Economics Podcasts

You might be a leader in a large corporation, fresh into the workforce or with 30 years under your belt. Or maybe you are a small business owner or entrepreneur. Whichever it is … you are good at what you do. You feel safe, but keep wondering how long you have before what you do is automated, outsourced, off-shored, replaced or just made obsolete. It will happen. Nothing stands still! Your options are to stay the course, leave for another opportunity or do your own thing. All of them require transformation. I worked in Silicon Valley for over 30 years. You only succeed in that environment by continual transformation. Through conversation and interviews, I will share lessons, stories and case studies that will help you understand how real people at work and play balance priorities every day to make a living and provide the best life possible for themselves and those around them all there while with an eye on the future. At the very least I am going to make you think.
