EP 129: Infinite Possibility, The Multiverse with authors Kim C. Korn and B. Joseph Pine II

Joseph Pine and Jim Gilmore’s classic The Experience Economy identified a seismic shift in the business world: to set yourself apart from your competition, you need to stage experiences—memorable events that engage people in inherently personal ways. But as consumers increasingly experience the world through their digital gadgets, companies still only scratch the surface of technology-infused experiences. So today’s guests Joseph Pine and Kim Korn will share how to create new value for...


EP 128: One Second Ahead with author Rasmus Hougaard

Researchers have found that the accelerated pace of modern office life is taking its toll on productivity, employee engagement, creativity and well-being. Faced with a relentless flood of information and distractions, our brains try to process everything at once increasing our stress, decreasing our effectiveness and negatively impacting our performance. Ironically, we have become too overworked, unfocused, and busy to stop and ask ourselves the most important question: What can we do to...

EP 126: A Life Worth Breathing with Max Strom

We can do more with our lives. We all know it, we all wish for it, but just how to do it—that eludes us. As one man describes his life, “In the morning I can’t wake up, in the day I am bored, in the evening I am tired, and at night I can’t sleep.” Even if we want to change, we’re not sure which path to take, and if we do find our way, we are usually too emotionally wounded, physically unhealthy, or mentally stressed to take the steps we know would transform our desperate life into a...


EP 125: The Creative Curve: How to Develop the Right Idea, at the Right Time with Allen Gannett

We have been spoon-fed the notion that creativity is the province of genius - of those favoured, brilliant few whose moments of insight arrive in unpredictable flashes of divine inspiration. And if we are not a genius, we might as well pack it in and give up. Either we have that gift, or we don’t. But that simply isn’t true. Recent research has shown that there is a predictable science behind achieving commercial success in any creative endeavour, from writing a popular novel to starting...


EP 124: Dogs Don’t Bark at Parked Cars with Jeff Piersall

“Strange is our situation here upon earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to a divine purpose. From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: That we are here for the sake of other men” - Albert Einstein Dogs don’t bark at parked cars. Dogs only chase moving objects. If you aspire to invest your life in a noble goal; you will experience barking dogs. But you do not have to stop the car for them. Drawing from a lifetime...


EP 123: Finding Time to Lead Seven Practices to Unleash Outrageous Potential with Leslie Peters

The world is full of leaders, from newly minted entrepreneurs to highly paid CEOs. There are nearly a quarter million CEOs in America alone. But according to a Gallup report, only one in ten people possess the talent that’s required of a CEO. If 90% of people lack innate management skills, how CEOs succeed? CEOs can build incredible cultures, grow companies, and enhance the bottom line. But without the right guidance, they can just as easily burn out, cause cultures to stagnate, and lead...

EP 121: "Truth" with strategic communications expert, master storyteller and author Hector MacDonald

“There are truths which are not for all men, nor for all times” - Voltaire True or false? It’s rarely that simple. This episode aims to equip us to spot misleading truths that are all around us and to communicate more effectively with friends & family. There is more than one truth about most things. Eating meat is nutritious but it’s also damaging to the environment. The Internet disseminates knowledge but it also spreads hatred. When we communicate we naturally select the truths that are...


EP 120: The Ten Types of Human: A New Understanding of Who We Are with Dexter Dias

“How does one fashion a book of resistance, a book of truth in an empire of falsehood? Is it possible for freedom and independence to arise in new ways under new conditions?” - Philip K. Dick The argument of the book is that we’ve evolved a number of mental modules. They are associated with characteristic types of human behaviour. This show introduces ten people. In a way, we already know them. Only we don’t – not really. In a sense, they are us. Only they’re not entirely. They inform and...


EP 119: “Trust” Trustology: The Art and Science of Leading High-Trust Teams with Richard Fagerlin

“Trust is not what we “do”—it is what results from what we do.” - Richard Fagerlin Of the thousands of books published each year on leadership, management, self-help, and motivation, very few offer practical tools and solutions to the number one challenge in business: trust. With trust, our relationships flourish, our productivity rises, and we have high personal and professional satisfaction. A trust-filled atmosphere lets people take risks, allowing innovation and creativity to thrive....

Ep 117: The Science behind Science Fiction with Edward M. Lerner: Augmented Humanity, AI, The Future

Today’s show is with one of the leading global writers of hard science fiction and indeed cyberfiction. He is the author of over 18 titles and what we hope is fascinating for followers of this show is the science he puts behind the fiction.

A physicist and computer scientist, he toiled in the vineyards of high tech for thirty years, as everything from engineer to senior...

The 14th-century Sufi poet, Hafiz wrote: “Learn to recognize the counterfeit coins that may buy you just a moment of pleasure, but then drag you for days like a broken man behind a farting camel.” Pornography is not only an individual problem, it’s a social and cultural problem. It is impacting many relationships, individuals and in the dawn of...


EP 115: Topple: The End of Firm-Based Strategy with Ralph Welborn, PhD

EP 110: The Truth about Consumers and the Psychology of Shopping - Consumer.ology with Philip Graves

If we depend on market research to dictate business decisions, today's guest explains how this is a big mistake. Market research cannot predict buying decisions because it focuses on the conscious mind, like most of our daily decisions in life and business. we make them unconsciously.

Then, if products and marketing campaigns...
