    Create the Future and the Innovation Handbook: Tactics for Disruptive Thinking, Jeremy Gutsche

    We've reached a point in time when everyone wants innovation, but most people don't know how to actually attain it. It's not easy, which is why there are so many failed brands and companies. In our era of AI, rapid change, disruption, and possibility, there are so many great opportunities within our grasp. However, smart, successful people consistently miss out. Their capabilities are limited by seven traps, and they rely on and repeat past decisions. They miss out on the potential of what could have been. If we could remove these traps, what could we accomplish? How much more successful could we be? Today’s book teaches us how to think disruptively, providing specific steps to create real innovation and change. It combines our guests high energy provocative thinking with tactics that have been battle tested through projects with leading innovators like Disney, Starbucks, Amex, IBM, Adidas, Google, and NASA.

    Reflections on the Dark Side of Leadership with Dr Robert Hogan

    Reflections on the Dark Side of Leadership with Dr Robert Hogan

    Being awarded a leadership role within an organization may feel like an amazing accomplishment, but that is only half the battle. The second, and arguably most important half, lies in building and maintaining a highly effective team. However, according to a recent survey conducted on UK workers, managers are failing miserably at this task, and are instead fostering feelings of hate and resentment among their workers. The survey states that while 22% of the UK public say they hate their boss, a staggering 52% identify their boss as their primary source of job dissatisfaction. So, where is it that managers are going wrong, and what can they do to improve their employees’ perception of them?

    Interesting research during the 1970s–found that managerial failure had little to do with IQ or personal attractiveness. Rather, it was linked directly to interpersonal competence. And, since personality is at the core of interpersonal competence, our guest today developed one of the globe's leading personality assessments to identify the 11 personality scales that cause leaders to fail time and time again.

    We welcome creator of The Hogan Assessments, Dr Robert Hogan

    The Relationship Economy: Building Stronger Customer Connections in the Digital Age with John R. DiJulius

    The Relationship Economy: Building Stronger Customer Connections in the Digital Age with John R. DiJulius

    , it helps grow the show. Today’s guest teaches business leaders about the importance of relationship building in the digital age. He argues that in spite of (and because of) the advances in tech, we've become a less connected society. We have dramatically evolved away from face-to-face communication, and the skill of building rapport is evaporating. This means that customer personalisation and relationships are more important now than ever--and they will be the key to success for businesses moving forward. As he aptly states, "Being able to build true sustainable relationships is the biggest competitive advantage in a world where automation, artificial intelligence, and machine learning are eliminating the human experience, which is what creates the emotional connections that build true customer loyalty." This book reminds readers of the importance of personal connections and shows them how to attain meaningful, lasting relationships with their customers. We welcome John R. DiJulius, the author of The Relationship Economy: Building Stronger Customer Connections in the Digital Age More about John here:

A world-class show for founders and innovators

I discovered the show during lockdown and am devouring it. There’s a brilliant and broad range of guests, and Aidan’s style is laid back but clear and directive, resulting in quality content that’s a pleasure to listen to. It’s great to see an Irish show produced to such high quality. I just wish I had found it sooner!

A Modern day Agora!

The Innovation Show is the modern day digital equivalent of the Agora in Ancient Greece. Take a moment, rest a little and listen to some of our great thinkers wax lyrical about their most recent endeavour. Aidan’s style and approach to digging into their motivations and story, whilst drawing out insights and conclusions gives the listener direction on how to fill a book shelf with some really great reads. Well worth including in your weekly podcast listen list!

Fountain of Knowledge

This is an excellent podcast and is top of my list each week! It is clear Aidan is hugely passionate about each subject and the format works really well for what is a diverse set of topics. I find the show very thought provoking and spend my time sharing nuggets with colleagues and friends.

All episodes worth a listen but for someone who works in the Financial services industry the most recent episodes with Dee Hock and “Money without boundaries” were particularly inspiring!

Keep it up Aidan
