We talk to leaders of the world’s most disruptive companies about how they are jumping into the fire, crossing the chasm and blowing up the status quo. Leaders who’ve mastered the art of turning the impossible into the profitable.

    Marcel Marcondes

    "Leading In The Time Of Virus".

    Marcel Marcondes is the U.S. Chief Marketing Officer for Anheuser-Busch.

    We talked about what he’s learned about leading a culture that embraces minorities after experiencing racism in his own life.

    And about the need to show up as a human being first and a leader second. 

    We also talked about why he’s listening now, more than ever. And then turning what he hears into action.

    "Leading In The Time Of Virus".

    This conversation is with the film and television producer Stephen Garrett. 

    During his career, Stephen’s been responsible for an extraordinary range of content. He brings stories to life. And he has a rare gift for observing humanity.

    As almost everything seems to be changing by the minute, I talked to Stephen about the stories that will be told going forward, about who are today’s heroes and who are the enemies and about how and when production will come back

    "Leading In The Time Of Virus".

    Pamela Culpepper; Erin Gallagher and Caroline Dettman are the founders of Have Her Back Consulting. They describe themselves as a culture consultancy working with companies to tackle equity for all.

    As leaders struggle to come to terms with simultaneously fighting these two viruses - corona and racism - what happens to the efforts to create gender equity, how do we design companies and society for the future and who risks getting left behind?

    "Leading In The Time Of Virus".

    Justin Gignac is the co-founder of Working Not Working - a curated community of 80,000 of the best creatives in the world.

    Most businesses today are led and staffed by predominantly white people. Very, very few companies reflect society.

    If you're really going to fix this problem, you’re going to have look for talent in different places, define a successful candidate in different terms and hire in different ways.

    John S. Couch

    "Leading In The Time Of Virus".

    John Couch is the VP of Product Design at Hulu and author of “The Art of Creative Rebellion: How to champion creativity, change culture and save your soul”.

    He is also the child of an interracial marriage, at a time when interracial marriages were illegal. 

    He has suffered prejudice from both sides of his ancestry. And he has emerged, thoughtful, philosophical and committed to making a lasting difference.

    Ian Davis

    "Leading In The Time Of Virus".

    I invited Ian Davis of Age Of The Creative on the show after reading an open letter that he posted on LinkedIn. 

    Today, leaders must confront two viruses. Covid-19. And racism.

    If Black Lives Matter is to be a vaccine or at the very least a therapeutic, we need to shine a light on racism in all its forms. Many of us need to be much better educated about how racism shows up so that we can take real action to wipe it out. 

    This conversation is part of that work.

Creativity discussed Creatively

I love this podcast! Charles brings such a fresh approach to these conversations. Long before he recaps his 3 takeaways, I always find that I learn so much from listening to the speaker, but also by listening to how he engages them in conversation. Charles is remarkably disarming, so these heavy hitters, who are well-prepped for media, are honest and authentic, and I sometimes wonder if they’re letting their guard down just a little bit without realizing it.

"Creative leadership" is such an oft-used term these days, that there is no clear definition for it. Charles illuminates various definitions by having insightful conversations and gleaning perspectives from some of today’s great creative leaders.
