Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova.  This week I am thrilled to welcome Amy Edmondson to the What’s Next! Podcast. Amy is an American scholar of leadership, teaming, and organizational learning who is currently the Novartis Professor of Leadership at the Harvard Business School. She has been recognized by the bi-annual Thinkers50 global ranking of management thinkers since 2011, and most recently was ranked #3 in 2019; she also received the organization’s Breakthrough Idea Award in 2019 and Talent Award in 2017.  She studies teaming, psychological safety, and organizational learning, and her articles have been published in numerous academic and management outlets, including Administrative Science Quarterly, Academy of Management Journal, Harvard Business Review, and California Management Review. Her most recent book, The Fearless Organization: Creating Psychological Safety in the Workplace for Learning, Innovation and Growth, offers a practical guide for organizations serious about success in the modern economy and has been translated into 11 languages. I am beyond thrilled to be speaking with Amy Edmondson on the What’s Next! Podcast!    THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR… leaders, team members, those afraid to use their voice, and those who are afraid of not having all the answers!    TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… We live in a world where expertise is increasingly narrower and deeper than ever before, and Amy wants you to know that it is okay not to know ALL the answers. In fact, NOBODY knows all the answers! The world is changing so fast that even if you knew everything “today,” it’s a given you wouldn’t know everything that there was to know “tomorrow.” So, according to Amy, you might as well get comfortable with not knowing and learn to turn it into something positive as opposed to shameful. Being comfortable with not knowing and being open to constantly learning is more critical than ever before in a world that is suddenly, drastically different and requiring more flexibility than ever before. To that end, Amy is tackling what she calls “psychological safety.” It’s okay to speak up–it’s necessary–and it’s important to ask for help. There should be a conviction in you that it is okay to speak up and that your voice is welcome. It is incumbent upon great teams and great leaders to create an environment where it is safe, encouraged, and rewarded to take the risk and speak up–even when and especially when it isn’t “good news.” If you listen people will speak!    WHAT  I  LOVE  MOST… There should be a conviction in you that it is okay to speak up and that your voice is welcome.    Running time: 32:46     Subscribe on iTunes     Find Tiffani on social:  Facebook  Twitter  LinkedIn     Find Amy online:  Twitter  LinkedIn    Amy’s Website    The Fearless Organization Book

Podcast, an encore of my LinkedIn Live chat with former Amazon VP Colin Bryar! Colin joined Amazon in 1998–four years after its founding–and spent the next 12 years as part of Amazon's senior leadership team as Amazon grew from a domestic (US-only) seller of books to a global, multi-dimensional powerhouse and innovator. Colin served as a Vice President at Amazon, and for two of his years, he was "Chief of Staff" to Jeff Bezos, AKA "Jeff's shadow", during which he spent each day attending meetings, traveling with, and discussing business and life with Jeff.

Well, Michael has a few questions for you? Have you developed the right focus - a concise, compelling, clear-focus? Have you created an environment of both engagement and performance where you can capture people’s hearts as well as their heads? And importantly, have you built the right team? That’s what MichaelCanic is here to talk about. That, and how important it is to be ruthlessly consistent when going about it.   WHAT  I  LOVE  MOST… Sometimes we get so enamored with the BIG things that we have to do that we forget the little things, and consistency is one of those “little” things that is key!    Running time 28:50      Subscribe on iTunes     Find Tiffani on social:   Facebook   Twitter   LinkedIn   Instagram      Find Michael online:   LinkedIn  Twitter  Instagram  Making Strategy Happen Website    Ruthless Consistency Book 
Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova.       This week I am beyond thrilled to be speaking with Dave Smith and Brad Johnson on the What’s Next Podcast! David G. Smith, Ph.D., is a professor of sociology in the National Security Affairs Department at the U.S. Naval War College. As a sociologist trained in military sociology and social psychology, he focuses his research on gender, work, and family issues. He is the co-author of Athena Rising: How and Why Men Should Mentor Women along with Brad Johnson. W. Brad Johnson, Ph.D., is a professor of psychology in the Department of Leadership, Ethics, and Law at the United States Naval Academy and a faculty associate in the Graduate School of Education at Johns Hopkins University. He is the author of thirteen books, including Athena Rising: How and Why Men Should Mentor Women and his newest book, also co-authored with Dave Smith, Good Guys: How Men Can Be Better Allies for Women in the Workplace.    THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR… men in positions of power and leaders looking to be allies and mentors in the workplace to further workplace gender equity and inclusion.    TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… Diversity is often looked at as just counting heads without much thought given to how much individuals feel that they are included and included meaningfully. The research is really clear in terms of increased performance, creativity, and innovation, but diversity without thought to real inclusion does not often lead to those outcomes. Good leadership values this and takes it into account. So, how do leaders show that they have this awareness and demonstrate allyship in the workplace? That’s what Dave and Brad are all about, and that’s what they’re sharing with us in this episode! Diversity expands capacity and ability in an organization and creates more opportunities, not less. But to get there, you need to be intentional and set clear objectives. This also applies to mentors and mentorship, and it also applies to workplace culture and how men in positions of power and leadership speak to, with, and about the women in their organizations. Mentorship is the key to creating meaningful change, inclusion, and allyship in an organization. This isn’t about white-knighting or rescuing, this is about creating space, stepping back from the spotlight granted by privilege, and intentionally moving the dial on inclusion with that power.    WHAT  I  LOVE  MOST… Dave and Brad’s mission to create more allyship and inclusivity in the workplace.    Running time 35:03      Subscribe on iTunes     Find Tiffani on social:   Facebook   Twitter   LinkedIn   Instagram      Find Dave and Brad online:   Dave Smith’s Website    Brad Johnson’s Website    Good Guys: How Men Can Be Better Allies for Women in the Workplace Book   Athena Rising: How and Why Men Should Mentor Women Book

Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova.  This week I am thrilled to bring you our fourth What’s Next! Bonus Episode with the wonderful Roger Martin! For this special episode, I'm sharing my recent LinkedIn Live chat with my friend Roger. In 2017, Roger was named the world’s #1 management thinker by Thinkers50, a biannual ranking of the most influential global business thinkers.

His newest book is When More is Not Better: Overcoming America’s Obsession with Economic Efficiency.    THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR…Leaders looking to find a productive balance between purpose and profits.     TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… Roger and I discuss his new book and the history of American economics. For the first 200 years of the American economy, we witnessed a truly impressive performance and the economic life of the average American family got better. But, in recent decades, growth in the economic prosperity of the average family in America has slowed to a crawl. At the same time, the prosperity of America’s richest families has grown to a level never seen before. This combination of the stagnation of the average family and the enrichment of the richest Americans threatens American democratic capitalism. Roger provides a unique viewpoint on what has changed and why the helpful pursuit of efficiency has turned into a damaging obsession. He also begins to lay out how to bring about more productive balance.    WHAT  I  LOVE  MOST… Getting the opportunity to talk to Roger about a phenomenon that has become more apparent than ever in recent months!   Running time: 42:04   Subscribe on iTunes   Find Tiffani on social:  Facebook  Twitter  LinkedIn  Instagram    Find Roger online:  LinkedIn  Twitter    When More is Not Better Book

Earlier this year, the world seemed to change overnight… and suddenly we all needed to pivot rapidly. Stephen and the team at Simon Sinek immediately took to their task of creating–and helping others create–a safer, more inspired, and more fulfilled world in a NEW way. Like the rest of us, they knew they needed to reinvent themselves, their jobs, and their business models… Stephen explains that it wasn’t, and shouldn’t be, about individual credit. It’s all about improvement and cooperation. He also breaks down some of the work he and others are doing at Simon Sinek to help others jumpstart their “why” and articulate their purpose, identify the difference between confidence and arrogance, and internalize the power and process of the pivot! He also dives into finite vs infinite and which side the “game of business” falls.  WHAT  I  LOVE  MOST… It’s not just about pivoting your company, but pivoting yourself and it’s not a game of credit, it’s a game of improvement!    Running time: 33:34    Subscribe on iTunes       Find Tiffani on social:   Facebook   Twitter   LinkedIn   Instagram      Find Stephen online:   LinkedIn  Twitter    Simon Sinek Resources:
