    SPOS #829 - David McRaney On The Surprising Science of How Minds Change

    SPOS #829 - David McRaney On The Surprising Science of How Minds Change

    Welcome to episode #829 of Six Pixels of Separation.
    Here it is: Six Pixels of Separation - Episode #829 - Host: Mitch Joel. When you have a curious mind, you might find yourself wondering what it takes to truly change someone's mind... is that even possible? Especially as things get as crazy as they have become? David McRaney had his own mind changed (about many things)… and it surprised him. David is a science journalist, and he's fascinated will all things brains, minds and culture. He created the blog/book/podcast, You Are Not So Smart, to get a better understanding of self-delusion and motivated reasoning. He started the blog in 2009, and the book became a bestseller shortly after (now available in 17 languages). His second book, You Are Now Less Dumb, was released in 2013, and his latest book is, How Minds Change - The Surprising Science of Belief, Opinion and Persuasion. David also recently wrote, produced, and recorded a six-hour audio documentary, Exploring Genius, that dives deep into the history of the idea and the word: genius. With that, if you think that we can't motivate others to rethink their beliefs, you would be wrong. If you still don't believe me, listen to this show. Enjoy the conversation...

    SPOS #828 - Laura Huang On Turning Adversity Into Advantage

    SPOS #828 - Laura Huang On Turning Adversity Into Advantage

    Welcome to episode #828 of Six Pixels of Separation. Here it is: Six Pixels of Separation - Episode #828 - Host: Mitch Joel. Laura Huang is a professor of Business Administration at the Harvard Business School. Laura’s research examines interpersonal relationships and implicit bias in entrepreneurship and in the workplace. She is the creator and co-founder of Project EMplify, an initiative dedicated to addressing inequality and disadvantage through personal empowerment. Previously, she held positions in investment banking, consulting, and management, for organizations such as Standard Chartered Bank, IBM Global Services, and Johnson & Johnson. Her first book is entitled, Edge - Turning Adversity into Advantage, and it looks at how to find a competitive edge when the obstacles feel insurmountable. How do you get people to take you seriously when they're predisposed not to, and perhaps have already written you off? Through her deeply-researched framework, Laura shows how we can turn weaknesses into strengths and create an edge in any situation. She explains how an entrepreneur scored a massive investment despite initially being disparaged for his foreign accent, and how a first-time political candidate overcame voters' doubts about his physical disabilities. Special shout-out to Laura Gassner Otting for the introduction to Laura. Enjoy the conversation...
