    How to Change the Status Quo through Narrative Intelligence

    How to Change the Status Quo through Narrative Intelligence

    Join Association Chat host KiKi L'Italien as she interviews founder of TheNewQuo.com Christina Blacken about using leadership and narrative intelligence for addressing culture change and inclusion.
     
    Some of the questions discussed during the show:
    What is The New Quo? Why are stories so important for us to understand when trying to change the status quo? What do leaders need to know about the role that narrative intelligence plays in driving behavior and making change happen? - Is the social contract broken? Is our social contract something that can be repaired and improved? How can association leaders make the biggest difference in addressing inequality internally with their staff and externally with their members and organizational stakeholders? What are signs or signals to a leader that shows that they are on the right path with regard to creating meaningful change with regard to equality? What is a sign that maybe they aren’t? Christina Blacken is a public speaker, performer, podcast host of "Sway them in Color," and founder of TheNewQuo.com. The New Quo is a leadership development and communication consultancy helping leaders tap into their narrative intelligence and the psychological power of story to transform behavior, build an inclusive culture, and communicate new ideas with deeper connection and influence to achieve their goals. She provides professional development training on inclusive leadership and copywriting services for underrepresented founders, and has taught 445 leaders how to transform themselves, their habits, and their workplace cultures on the topics of imposter syndrome, unconscious bias, and culture change. Before running her business, she worked for 10 years in corporate America using stories to drive change including inspiring 300k teens to take action on pro-social causes, and closing 6.5M in sales with the teams and household brands she's worked with. The New Quo has been featured in Elle.com, Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, Huffington Post, Forbes, Business Insider, and Thrive.com among other outlets.

    How Racism Plays a Role in Health Inequities with Harriet Washington

    How Racism Plays a Role in Health Inequities with Harriet Washington

    As a medical ethicist, Harriet Washington has a unique and courageous voice and deconstructs the politics around medical issues. In addition to giving an abundance of historically accurate information on ‘scientific racism’, she paints a powerful and disturbing portrait of medicine, race, sex, and the abuse of power by telling individual human stories. Washington also makes the case for broader political consciousness of science and technology, challenging audiences to see the world differently and challenge established paradigms in the history of medicine.
    On July 23, 2020, Association Chat host KiKi L'Italien interviewed Washington about racism and discrimination in health care, its impact during Covid-19, and how we can begin to address systemic racism within our healthcare system.
    More about our guest
    Harriet Washington is an award-winning medical writer and editor, and the author of the best-selling book, Medical Apartheid: The Dark History of Medical Experimentation on Black Americans from Colonial Times to the Present. In her work, she focuses mainly on bioethics; the history of medicine; African-American health issues; and the intersection of medicine, ethics, and culture.

    Hope for the Best and Plan for the Worst with Max Brooks

    Hope for the Best and Plan for the Worst with Max Brooks

    I had so much fun in this interview with the brilliant Max Brooks.
    Now Max is kind of amazing. You may be familiar with his books, like The Zombie Survival Guide, World War Z, the graphic novel The Harlem Hellfighters, and his latest Devolution...but did you know that Max is also a lecturer at the Modern War Institute at West Point and the Atlantic Council’s Brent Snowcroft Center for Strategy and Security?
    He regularly explores new ways to attack large-scale concerns, which is a valuable exercise when we are all in the midst of a global health crisis.
     
    Find out what he says is the answer for "willful ignorance" and why I'm creating my own "Order of the Palm" when I talk with him for this episode of Association Chat.

    Can You Become a Collaborator with Your Competitor?

    Can You Become a Collaborator with Your Competitor?

    In a Forbes article titled, "Why Collaborating With Your Competition Can Be A Great Idea," the author shared research indicating that "coopetition" could be a financial win for the organizations that opt to go that direction.
    Becoming a collaborator with your competitor can be a challenge, but it might be the best thing you do. For this episode of the Chat, I talk with Tahira Endean and Mahoganey Jones about the ways competitors can work together and why we should all consider it.
