    #067 - Daniel Pink - Multiple NYT Bestselling Author

    Daniel Pink is a multiple-author including a number of NYT bestselling books. 
    His combination of thorough research on a topic and a style of writing that is engaging and entertaining makes his books a great read.
    Books like "Drive" where he explains the concept Motivation 2.0 or "To Sell is Human" where he explains why almost all of us are in sales and why extroverts are not the best salespeople or "A Whole New Mind" which is our today"s VUCA world even more relevant are books I loved and love reading.
    His latest book is "When" where he looks at the question of how timing - during a day, month, year or life, determines the probability of success of something. 
    A great conversation with many insights I am implementing on a regular basis.
    Enjoy!

    #064 - Bella Zanesco - High-Performance Strategist

    Why are we laughing and giggling together you wonder? 
    Bella and I are both Kite-surfing fans though she is doing that on a completely different level. 
    Bella became also world champion in sailing at the age of 38!
    On the flip side, she knows how it is to get through depression and how to reinvent yourself over a period of 3 to 5 years. 
    There is so much in this episode. 
    Did you know that one key to high-performance is JOY? No wonder we are laughing together and have a lot of joy during the session. 
    But 65% of the 3000+ by Bella interviewed executives don't want to show up at work on Monday. And 70% don't know what to do about their career. These are shocking numbers - and there are more of these numbers. 
    But Bella also has specific tips and suggestions and shares the 4S (actually 5S) model in the episode.
    PS: The side noise goes away after six minutes. Sorry about that.
    More about Bella Zanesco Bella Zanesco is a career and high-performance strategist, a world champion sailor, author of Smart Girls Screw Up Too and philanthropist working to give people and organisations the tools they need to become fully expressed leaders in their lives and careers.

Positive disruption on thought leadership

Thank you Michael for making such an effort to invite some many different speakers on your podcast . I work in health and would have never thought about anything other than health. Your podcasts speakers help me now explore some many different thinking that are so relevant to my work because I work with human like many of those speakers on the show. The podcasts bring positive disruption to how would do things differently and explore the impossible partnerships.
