Zappos innovates again with holacracy
Arizona Diamondbacks CEO Derrick Hall invigorates the baseball fan experience
Why we hate fine print!

Will Zappos win with non-traditional management?
Zappos is in the news once again for implementing a management concept called holacracy. This concept throws out the idea of managers as decision-makers. Decision making is distributed through self-organizing teams instead of a traditional pyramid hierarchy.
Adam wonders about how this will be handled from a human resources perspective. Jeannie raises lots and lots of questions about this idea, including how different generations might respond to this.
And finally…how will this affect the customer experience?
Discussion begins at 1:12.
Derrick Hall, President and CEO, Arizona Diamondbacks
Jeannie has a special interview with Derrick Hall, one of the most innovative and respected leaders in Major League Baseball. Derrick sat down with Jeannie at the CXPA Insight Exchange in San Diego in May, where he was one of the keynote speakers.
Jeannie asks Derrick about why all leaders have to fail, how to help employees push the envelope and take chances, and still meeting business needs.
Listen in to hear this unique opportunity to hear about innovation, talent management and the customer experience in one of the world’s most popular sports.
Huge thanks to Derrick for making time for us at the Insight Exchange! 
Discussion begins at 5:40.
Customer Hero, Customer Zero: Fine Print Is Never a Hero
Adam graciously says fine print is a necessity, but the way it’s used is the problem.
Jeannie says it’s misleading and hiding things from customers!
Hear about some of the times Jeannie & Adam have been frustrated by the tiny words! 
Discussion begins at 17:26.
