"Josh Kaufman spoke to Googlers in Mountain View on February 10, 2011 about his book The Personal MBA: Master the Art of Business. He is introduced by Jenny Blake.
About The Personal MBA: Master the Art of Business:
"Getting an MBA is an expensive choice: one almost impossible to justify even in a good economy. Even the elite schools like Harvard and Wharton offer outdated, assembly-line programs that teach you more about PowerPoint presentations and unnecessary financial formulae than what it takes to improve a real business. You can get better results (and save hundreds of thousands of dollars) by skipping business school altogether."
Based on decades of multi-disciplinary research and experiences with leaders and organizations all over the world, Annie McKee shares what resonant leaders do to build strong teams, a resonant culture, and a climate that fosters innovation. She provides clear and compelling evidence that the best leaders develop themselves holistically over their entire careers.
Named High Priestess of Executive Coaching in Business Weeks 2005 Best 100 Leaders issue, Annie McKees mission is to help leaders, one by one, to embrace the hope that carried her through her life. Annie is the founder of Teleos Leadership Institute, a consulting firm with a mission of developing values-based leadership and resonant organizations. Annie has co-authored bestselling books on leadership, including Primal Leadership (with Daniel Goleman and Richard Boyatzis).
"The blockbuster best seller Primal Leadership introduced us to "resonant" leaders--individuals who manage their own and others' emotions in ways that drive success. Leaders everywhere recognized the validity of resonant leadership, but struggled with how to achieve and sustain resonance amid the relentless demands of work and life. Now, Richard Boyatzis and Annie McKee provide an indispensable guide to overcoming the vicious cycle of stress, sacrifice, and dissonance that afflicts many leaders. Drawing from extensive multidisciplinary research and real-life stories, Resonant Leadership offers a field-tested framework for creating the resonance that fuels great leadership. Rather than constantly sacrificing themselves to workplace demands, leaders can manage the cycle using specific techniques to combat stress, avoid burnout, and renew themselves physically, mentally, and emotionally. The book reveals that the path to resonance is through mindfulness, hope, and compassion and shows how intentionally employing these qualities creates effective and enduring leadership. Great leaders are resonant leaders. Resonant Leadership offers the inspiration--and tools--to spark and sustain resonance in ourselves and in those we lead."
"The General Session Panel "Coaching with Compassion: Inspiring Sustained, Desired Change" was led by Dr. Richard Boyatzis, Professor in Departments of Organizational Behavior, Psychology, and Cognitive Science at Case Western Reserve University. The session addressed a variety of topics including a process for developing and coaching others to develop sustainable improvement on Emotional Intelligence (EI), resonant leadership, and effective leadership, and the central role of compassion in it."
It's not just Kickstarter anymore. Here's a road map.
Crowdfunding used to be pretty simple. Artists, inventors, and filmmakers posted their ideas, and funders chipped in a few bucks to make something happen. Kickstarter, the site that triggered the crowdfunding movement, was the cornerstone. In three years, the site has helped launch more than 95,000 projects.
Today, there are scores of crowdfunding sites. Indiegogo, Bolstr, Fundable--the list goes on. With the SEC poised to allow projects to offer equity, crowdfunding has the potential to revolutionize how entrepreneurs raise money. (For now, you have to offer some kind of reward in exchange for donations.)
But all sites are not created equal. Some specialize in nonprofits, or in certain types of products; others offer consulting services in addition to sourcing funding. In an increasingly crowded and complicated marketplace, where should you turn to fund your endeavor? Follow our map.
A CRISIS IN LEADERSHIP Over the past several years, the swift, and most often forced, departures of CEOs have become commonplace at companies in North. Based on work originally done at General Electric in the 1970s (referred to as Critical Career Crossroads and developed by Walter Mahler), and later expanded to and tested in more than 80 companies, we developed a six-passage model for understanding the leadership requirements throughout an entire company. We call this model The Leadership Pipeline (The Leadership Pipeline, by Ram Charan, Stephen J. Drotter and Jim Noel, Jossey-Bass Inc., 2001).
