Description

Traditional work methods are no longer effective in the American workforce. Because of the pandemic, the surge in remote work, and economic instability, employees are feeling unmotivated and constrained creatively. To solve this problem, thought leader and best-selling author Seth Godin is on the search for significance. In this episode, Seth is back on YAP to discuss key topics from his newest book, The Song of Significance: A Manifesto for Teams and the People Who Lead Them. Seth will share why industrialism is currently leading us on a “race to the bottom,” the reason why humans are not a “resource,” and how to make change happen as a significant team and leader in 2023. 


Seth Godin is one of the top marketers of our generation. He is the founder of the altMBA, Squidoo, and Yoyodyne, one of the first internet companies. Seth Godin is a renowned author of dozens of international bestsellers. He writes one of the most popular marketing blogs in the world, and two of his TED talks are amongst the most popular of all time. 


In this episode, Hala and Seth will discuss: 

- Why work isn’t working anymore

- Industrial Capitalism vs. Market Capitalism

- New measures of productivity

- What do the best jobs have in common?

- Creating a culture of significance

- What Seth learned from his project The Carbon Almonac

- What jobs will be taken away by AI

- Why we need high trust and high stakes work

- How to avoid false proxies 

- And other topics…


Seth Godin is an author, entrepreneur, and most of all, a teacher. In addition to launching one of the most popular blogs in the world, he has written 20 bestselling books, including The Dip, Linchpin, Purple Cow, Tribes, and What To Do When It's Your Turn (And It's Always Your Turn). His book, This is Marketing, was an instant bestseller in several countries around the world.


In 2013, Seth was one of just three professionals inducted into the Direct Marketing Hall of Fame. In an astonishing turn of events, in May 2018, he was inducted into the Marketing Hall of Fame as well. By focusing on everything from effective marketing and leadership, to the spread of ideas and changing everything, Seth has been able to motivate and inspire countless people around the world.
