The Spiritual Mindset of Thought Leadership | David Weitzner | 345
Today, we're honored to speak with David Weitzner, author of Connected Capitalism and Fifteen Paths.
David shares with us some of his thoughts, explaining the meaning of the term "Connected Capitalism".
We discuss the generational shift in business, and how employees are concerned about staying true to their values and finding success in their careers. This move away from the old mindset of "chasing the dollar" will, over time, change many of the financial models and practices that have stood for decades.
Making Better Decisions Through Thought Leadership | Thomas Lahnthaler | 344
Our guest today is Thomas Lahnthaler, Founder and CEO of The Crisis Compass.
Crisis points are often a source of fear and tunnel vision. We tend to rely on assumptions, or feel a need to take full responsibility and solve the problem alone. Thomas shares why these assumptions can be dangerous and address the way tunnel vision can be an advantage.
Thomas suggests ways a great leader can keep themselves ready for any crisis, and be in the best position to deal with difficulties as they arise.
As it’s labelled on the tin: you will get candid discussions on thought leadership with actionable advice you can put into practice. 🔥 Interviews are well moderated and organic. Really enjoying this pod so far.
