Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova. Elaine Bennett had a baptism by fire as a speechwriter. Less than two years after she signed on to write for the CEO of Salomon Brothers, scandal forced the executive to resign. In stepped investor Warren Buffett for whom she had always wanted to work with since she admires him as the best writer in the business world. Since working with Mr. Buffett, she continued to advise the CEOs of Fortune 100 companies, professional services firms, and leading nonprofits on their communications strategies. Passionate about Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, Elaine has been writing on the subject since it was just called “diversity,” winning a Cicero Award for the best-written speech on Diversity. She devotes a portion of her time to working pro bono with a New York City–based nonprofit that’s determined to transform itself into a role model of antiracism. She also designates a “Nonprofit of the Quarter" to receive a portion of Bennett Ink's net proceeds because giving back is important to her and she hopes to you, too.   THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR…  individuals who want to stand up confidently on stage and mesmerize their audience with a story or folks who just want to spice up their everyday one-on-one conversations.   TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… Storytelling is a skill, meaning that it requires rehearsal, scripts, practice, and research to create something truly unique and meaningful. But there is also something valuable about being in the moment, with casual banter and candid conversation. A balance exists between the scripted and the spontaneous, where you understand yourself and the subject matter enough to craft a story that will surely captivate the crowd.   WHAT I LOVE MOST… Storytelling is about cultivating human connections, emphasizing shared humanity to make an audience identify with you personally before you ever even start talking about the bigger picture business idea.       Running time: 34:07 Subscribe on iTunes     Find Tiffani on social: Facebook Twitter LinkedIn   Find Elaine online: Official Website Twitter LinkedIn   Elaine’s Personal Writings: Creative Nonfiction, Just Because

The leader’s mindset is about achieving results with and through others, to build those relationships with your people, and help them grow in the ways they need in order for them to succeed.   WHAT I LOVE MOST… You can’t maximize your efficiency with people and still be effective. You need to slow down and take your time to check in and make sure someone is personally doing okay when you are asking so much of them professionally.       Running time: 30:03 Subscribe on iTunes     Find Tiffani on social: Facebook Twitter LinkedIn   Find Scott online: Official Website Twitter LinkedIn   Scott’s Book: Master Mentors: 30 Transformative Insights from Our Greatest Minds

Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova. We were lucky to find the awesome human Nataly Kogan and invite her on the What’s Next! Podcast to discuss emotional fitness and how to find inner happiness. She is the author of multiple books, most recently The Awesome Human Project: Break Free from Daily Burnout, Struggle Less, and Thrive More in Work and Life which helps people learn how to rest and feel more joy. A leading expert on emotional fitness, Nataly Kogan is an entrepreneur, best-selling author, and keynote speaker on a mission to help millions of people struggle less and thrive more in work and life. Nataly immigrated to the US as a refugee from the former Soviet Union when she was 13 years old.

But after years of chasing a non-existent state of nirvana she suffered a debilitating burnout that led her to find a new way to live and work. Today, she helps Awesome Humans live and work with more connection, joy, and meaning by sharing her science-backed skills and practices.   THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR…  all levels of workers that are suffering from unprecedented levels of burnout and are seeking a means to break free from the cycle.   TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… The best way to learn how to care about others is to first learn how to care for yourself. But sometimes our brain is hardwired for uncertainty, so we must become the editor of our own thoughts and have the mindset for self-compassion. That means learning to take a break for a restorative rest so we can focus on what’s truly meaningful to us.   WHAT I LOVE MOST… Nataly’s core belief is that we are all awesome humans who have goals and purpose and meaning in their lives. But also, some days we don’t have that awesomeness and we are just human – that’s okay too.     Running time: 31:02   Subscribe on iTunes     Find Tiffani on social: Facebook Twitter LinkedIn   Find Nataly online: Official Website Twitter LinkedIn   Nataly’s Book: The Awesome Human Project: Break Free from Daily Burnout, Struggle Less, and Thrive More in Work and Life
Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova. Leadership consultant and executive coach, Steven Van Cohen, MSOD, connected with the What’s Next! Podcast to discuss his thoughts on workplace loneliness. Along with Ryan Jenkins, he is a co-author of the book Connectable: How Leaders Can Move Teams From Isolated to All In which gives insight on how to create meaningful connections within an organization. Dubbed “The Leadership Whisperer,” he’s spent more than a decade working alongside leading organizations like Salesforce, Home Depot, Komatsu, Bank of America, CAT, and Blackstone to improve worker well-being, reduce employee isolation and boost team belonging.  Steven is a co-founder of, the premier resource for addressing workplace loneliness and CEO of SyncLX, a leading consultancy specializing in employee development.  As a proud Big Brother, (from Big Brothers and Big Sisters), as well as a volunteer with Boys & Girls Club and Young Americans, Steven has helped build confidence in the future leaders of America.  He holds a BA from the University of Illinois and a MSOD from Pepperdine University. He lives in Orange County CA with his wife and two daughters.   THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR…  workers who are seeking validation and understanding in the loneliness of their workplace environment and managers who are striving to create a more connected workforce to inspire, engage, and properly appreciate their employees.   TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… While managing the emotional state of employees might not directly exist on a team leader’s job description, the fact is that disengaged and lonely employees are less productive and more susceptible to burnout. We must find the balance between caring about people and getting stuff done if we want to succeed as a healthy workplace.   WHAT I LOVE MOST… The business case for caring about employee loneliness is clear: workers who feel seen and heard perform better for your team. Building workplace connections is in your best interest because it inspires people to come to work as the best versions of themselves – everyone wins.     Running time: 30:37 Subscribe on iTunes     Find Tiffani on social: Facebook Twitter LinkedIn   Find Steven online: Official Website Twitter LinkedIn   Steven’s Book: Connectable: How Leaders Can Move Teams from Isolated to All In
Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova. Friend to the show, Roger L. Martin, made his third appearance on the What’s Next! Podcast to discuss the essentials of strategy and management, highlighting the launch of his new book A New Way to Think: Your Guide to Superior Management Effectiveness. Roger is Professor Emeritus at the Rotman School of Management at University of Toronto, where he served as Dean from 1998 to 2013, and as Institute Director of the Martin Prosperity Institute from 2013 to 2019. In 2013, he was named Global Dean of the Year and in 2017, he was named the world's number one management thinker by Thinkers50. He has published 12 previous books including When More Is Not Better and Playing to Win (with A. G. Lafley), which won the award for Best Book of 2012-13 by Thinkers50. Martin is a trusted strategy adviser to the CEOs of many global companies. A Canadian from Wallenstein, Ontario, he holds a BA from Harvard College and an MBA from Harvard Business School.      THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR…  business leaders and managers that are looking to enhance their operating strategy with an alternative model that ultimately increases effectiveness.   TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… The best metrics for success are based on past successful experiences, and conventional wisdom would say to imitate the dominant model to create that same success. But you must also view those strategies in context of the challenges and resources of a specific situation, because models cannot be copy pasted for an exact situation.  The execution of an idea is just as important as the idea itself, and in order to achieve true success, the strategy is always evolving to create a better and more innovative strategy for success.   WHAT I LOVE MOST… For Roger, there isn’t any singular model of success, but rather success comes from building a strategic mindset to approach and solve problems. The solutions that we often look for may not always be obvious, but by simply being willing to experiment with the past models of success, we can come out on the other end better than before.     Running time: 32:37 Subscribe on iTunes     Find Tiffani on social: Facebook Twitter LinkedIn   Find Roger online: Official Website Twitter LinkedIn   Roger’s Book: A New Way to Think: Your Guide to Superior Management Effectiveness
Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova. Entering with a bang, Alan Murray comes on the show this week to talk about the transformation of the corporate world in this modern era. Alan is CEO of Fortune Media. He oversees the business and editorial operations of the independent media company and is known for expanding its digital and conference franchises. Murray also writes a closely-read daily newsletter for Fortune, CEO Daily. Prior to joining Fortune in 2015, Murray led the rapid expansion of the Pew Research Center’s digital footprint as president of that organization. Before that, Murray was at the Wall Street Journal for many years, serving as deputy managing editor, executive editor online, Washington bureau chief, and author of the Political Capital and Business columns. He served for several years as Washington bureau chief for CNBC, and cohost of the nightly show Capital Report. He is the author of multiple books, including Showdown at Gucci Gulch: Lawmakers, Lobbyists, and the Unlikely Triumph of Tax Reform.   THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR…  consumers, employees, or business leaders that seeks the understand the ways in which profit-driven models for businesses have transformed and shifted towards value-driven motives.   TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… Our guest says that Capitalism has been a dynamic driving force in the development of the economy, guiding the startup of largest companies that are now known as the Fortune 500. But the Capitalism doesn’t play by the same set of rules as it did before – now more than ever, companies are shifting towards a model of business that Alan Murray refers to as “shareholder capitalism.” In this modern era of Capitalism, company values must reflect consumer values, placing an emphasis towards Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues to meet the demands of socially conscious investors, shareholders and consumers.    WHAT I LOVE MOST… Company culture, diversity and public values now take the front seat when considering business success models. Alan says this mode of thinking is here to stay and that we, as consumers, as employees, as the general populace can continue to influence businesses just by changing the public sentiment.     Running time: 32:37 Subscribe on iTunes     Find Tiffani on social: Facebook Twitter LinkedIn   Find Alan online: Official Website Twitter LinkedIn   Alan’s Book: Tomorrow’s Capitalist: My Search for the Soul of Business
Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova. This week we had the man, the myth, the legend Ram Charan on the show to talk about his business consulting experience. Ram is a world-renowned business advisor, author, and speaker who has spent the past 40 years working with many top companies, CEOs, and boards of our time. Fortune magazine has called him "the most influential consultant alive." Ram began his business education early in his life while working in the family shoe shop in northern India. As a young engineer, his bosses recognized his business talent and encouraged him to develop it. He went on to earn MBA and doctorate degrees from Harvard Business School, where he graduated with high distinction and was a Baker Scholar. He has written over 30 books that have sold more than 4 million copies in more than a dozen languages. Three were Wall Street Journal bestsellers, and Execution, co-authored with former Honeywell CEO Larry Bossidy, spent more than 150 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list.  THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR…  business leaders that are looking to hone in on a clear, decisive strategy for goal setting and achievement in the workplace. TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… What does it mean for a company to have a successful growth period? Well, that actually depends on the context of historical past data used as a baseline comparison to metrics from the current year. Success must be measurable, and by using “key performance indicators” we can set our own definitions of success and begin to determine for ourselves just what it means to be successful.  WHAT I LOVE MOST… During the hiring process, managers are looking to select the right person for the job, but Ram insightfully flips the question and asks if the job is right for the person. Sometimes people aren’t able to showcase their full talents in certain roles, and can really come alive if you put them in the right conditions.   Running time: 37:42 Subscribe on iTunes     Find Tiffani on social: Facebook Twitter LinkedIn   Find Ram online: Official Website Twitter LinkedIn   Ram’s Book: Talent: The Market Cap Multiplier

A former business journalist, she has reported from four countries and writes regularly on inclusive leadership for the Harvard Business Review. She was named to the Thinkers50 list, a global ranking described by the Financial Times as “the Oscars of management thinking.”   THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR…  workplace leaders who are looking to promote an equitable workplace environment and foster a culture of diversity & inclusion.   TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… Many people carry good intentions to create diverse and inclusive workplaces, so why do so many workers still feel excluded? By exploring the intersectionality of our identities, we can begin to see how gender, race, sexuality, and other aspects of identity should be considered holistically for individuals in the workplace. By implementing best workplace practices and actively practicing awareness, we can grow organizations purposefully to build diversity and inclusion.    WHAT I LOVE MOST… Ruchika reminds us to consider our own privileges and how our experiences might be different from someone else’s experience. She also reminds us that it’s okay to make mistakes in diversity practices, so long as we learn from them and do better next time.   Running time: 31:23 Subscribe on iTunes     Find Tiffani on social: Facebook Twitter LinkedIn   Find Ruchika online: Official Website Twitter LinkedIn   Ruchika’s Book: Inclusion on Purpose: An Intersectional Approach to Creating a Culture of Belonging at Work
Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova. Our honored guest this week is longtime friend to the show Daniel H. Pink. Dan is the author of five New York Times bestsellers, including his latest, “The Power of Regret: How Looking Backward Moves Us Forward,” published in February 2022. His other books include the New York Times bestsellers "When" and "A Whole New Mind" — as well as the #1 New York Times bestsellers "Drive" and "To Sell is Human." Dan’s books have won multiple awards, have been translated into 42 languages, and have sold millions of copies around the world. He lives in Washington, DC, with his family.   THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR…  those who are looking to face their regrets head on and emerge with an acceptance and understanding of the past so they can improve their future.   TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… There is a societal norm to proclaim “no regrets” as personal mantras for a life well-lived, but are we missing out by neglecting our feelings of regret? By ignoring our regrets, we are denying a key part of the human experience. Everyone has regret, but how we reckon with them – to try to accept and understand them – can ultimately help us make better choices for our lives.     WHAT I LOVE MOST… Sharing our regrets, vulnerabilities, and insecurities with coworkers, friends, and family won’t make people think less of you. The real strength comes from people who can empathize with you and build relationships from the shared humanity of learning to deal with your regrets.     Running time: 32:29 Subscribe on iTunes     Find Tiffani on social: Facebook Twitter LinkedIn   Find Dan online: Official Website Twitter LinkedIn   Dan’s Book: The Power of Regret: How Looking Backward Moves Us Forward

To find what we really love, our careers should be a scavenger hunt of the daily activities and experiences that bring us joy and fulfillment, rather than focused on a metric of success that only takes our work performance into account.   WHAT  I  LOVE  MOST… Our real strengths aren’t necessarily about what we are good at doing, but rather what gives us the most fulfillment. Marcus challenges us to return back to the childhood delights of exploring what love and centering our work on those principles. You don’t have to love everything you do, but you should be able to find love in what you are doing.     Running time: 35:58 Subscribe on iTunes     Find Tiffani on social: Facebook Twitter LinkedIn   Find Marcus online: Official Website Twitter LinkedIn   Marcus’ Book: Love + Work

If you can take care of your customer base, they will take care of you by providing repeat business, bringing their friends, and generating overall larger profit shares. The NPS can be used as a tool for orienting your company on the right path to align your product design with the needs of your customer base.   WHAT  I  LOVE  MOST… Both Darci and Maureen place humanity at the center of their business models, which ultimately allows them to be even more remarkable no matter what business venture they are exploring.   Running time: 30:02 Subscribe on iTunes   Find Tiffani on social: Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Instagram   Find Darci on social: Website Twitter LinkedIn   Find Maureen on social: Website LinkedIn   Darci & Maureen’s Book: Winning on Purpose

Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova. This week serves as a pleasant reminder of the honor and pleasure I had to connect with the accomplished Beth Comstock. Beth is a self-described change-maker who has been the President of Integrated Media at NBC Universal, overseeing Ad-sales, Marketing, and Research.

Beth provides inspiration and guidance in an age of staggering technological advancement, the ever-stronger pull of the “next big thing,” and the gravity of the unknown. It is becoming exceedingly important to be self-aware and cognizant of the things that make our businesses human and creative.

He is the author of a number of books, with the most recent release of “Deep Purpose: The Heart and Soul of High-Performance Companies” in 2022.      THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR… people who want to rediscover their own purpose on a deeper level and support others as they find their own sense of purpose.     TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… purpose is a multi-layered concept that spans many different parts of one’s life, both personally and professionally. Purpose can provide you the motivation to achieve something beyond the present state of being, guide you in the direction of the goals you truly want to accomplish in life, inspire others to follow in your footsteps, and create connections within communities that align with your goals and share your vision for the future.    WHAT  I  LOVE  MOST… Ranjay is very clear about the need for corporations to understand “purpose.” Defining a strong sense of purpose is good business because if you aren’t thinking for the long term, you won’t be in business.      Running time: 30:46  Subscribe on iTunes    Find Tiffani on Social:  Facebook  Twitter LinkedIn    Find Ranjay online:  Official Website  Twitter  LinkedIn    Ranjay’s Book:  Deep Purpose 
Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova.  Throwback to our conversation with the ever-candid yet always sincere Kim Scott. Kim is the author of three novels, and the New York Times & Wall Street Journal bestseller “Radical Candor: Be A Kickass Boss Without Losing Your Humanity.” Previously, Kim was the Co-founder and CEO of Juice Software, a collaboration startup. She led ad sense, YouTube, and double-click online sales and operations at Google, before she joined Apple to develop and teach a leadership seminar. She also has been a CEO coach at Dropbox, Qualtrics, Twitter, and several other tech companies. She received her MBA from Harvard and her B.A. from Princeton University.   THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR… anyone who is open to becoming more self-aware, interested in learning how to give and receive candid and effective feedback.    TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… Be able to show you that you care for those around you while also challenging them to be better. Candid, effective feedback is important, indispensable, and harder to come by than you might think. When you do get it, it’s in your best interest to embrace it, apply it, and continue to encourage it. Kim shares her best advice on how you can be a better giver of this valuable feedback (both positive and negative), as well as a better receiver of it.   WHAT  I  LOVE  MOST… Kim believes, as do I, that giving feedback is not mean, if it’s clear. Her personal anecdotes were illustrative, especially her own career re-focus with Sheryl Sandberg. I also love that she makes a point to remind us how important it is to make sure you take a moment in the day to thank somebody and recognize what they do and all that they bring to work, your business, or your life, every day.  Running time: 40:42     Subscribe on iTunes     Find Tiffani on social:  Facebook  Twitter  LinkedIn     Find Kim on social:  Twitter  LinkedIn  Facebook    Kim’s Book:  Radical Candor 
Welcome to the What's Next! Podcast with Tiffani Bova.  I am thrilled to bring back girl boss Whitney Johnson for this week’s episode of the What’s Next! Podcast. Whitney is CEO of the tech-enabled talent development company Disruption Advisors, an Inc. 5000 fastest-growing private company in America (2020). She also co-founded the Disruptive Innovation Fund with Harvard Business School’s late Clayton Christensen, worked as an award-winning equity analyst on Wall Street, and was named one of the top ten business thinkers in the world by Thinkers50. Whitney is an accomplished author of four books, and recently released “Smart Growth: How to Grow Your People to Grow Your Company” in 2022.  THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR… people who want to maximize their growth potential and broaden their horizons. TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… Whitney doesn’t think the term “The Great Resignation” accurately describes the workplace culture shift, rather she believes in “The Great Aspiration” - the idea that people are aspiring to jobs that give them greater fulfillment and more opportunities for learning and growth.  WHAT  I  LOVE  MOST… Whitney’s takes the S-Curve model one step further to apply the theory as an assessment tool for managers to help guide their team members and become the best boss a person will ever have.  Running time: 31:42   Subscribe on iTunes   Find Tiffani on social: Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Find Whitney online: Official Website Twitter LinkedIn Whitney’s Book: Smart Growth
