Welcome to the What’s Next! Podcast. I’ve met so many brilliant people as I traveled the globe and have had some fascinating conversations that I’ve wished had been recorded so I could share them with you - this podcast was a way for me recreate those moments and let you in on some fantastic insights.

    Your Voice Has Impact on How People Perceive You with Steve Herz

    Your Voice Has Impact on How People Perceive You with Steve Herz

    Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova.  

    This week I am thrilled to welcome  Steve Herz to the What’s Next Podcast! Steve is President of The Montag Group, a sports and entertainment talent and marketing consultancy. He is also a career advisor to CEOs, lawyers, entrepreneurs, and young professionals. Prior to joining TMG, Steve was the President and Founding Partner of IF Management, an industry leader whose broadcasting division became one of the largest in the space, representing over 200 television and radio personalities.  

     

    THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR… Anyone looking to improve their non-verbal communication. 

     

    TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… Steve breaks down the importance of body language, voice, and energy on the impressions you make! We discuss the influence of and interaction created by your body language, the often forgotten but highly influential nuances in your voice that make or break a conversation (or keynote), the undeniable influence of your energy and how you modulate your energy, and how we identify our bad habits. As Steve puts it, inflection is infection–with the right signals and energy you can infect others with your enthusiasm! Steve also helps us identify our bad habits and figure out how we can change them into good habits that will work for us instead of against us. He uses Steve Jobs as the ultimate case study and gets to the nitty-gritty of how we are perceived to be in terms of skill and competence and how we can influence that for the better.  

     

    WHAT  I  LOVE  MOST… We had such a great conversation about authority, warmth, connection, and the kinetic relationships you develop with people, that we did not even get to discuss his book!

    View Business Like a Rainforest: When More is Not Better with Roger Martin

    View Business Like a Rainforest: When More is Not Better with Roger Martin

    Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova. 
    This week I am thrilled to bring you our fourth What’s Next! Bonus Episode with the wonderful Roger Martin! For this special episode, I'm sharing my recent LinkedIn Live chat with my friend Roger.
    In 2017, Roger was named the world’s #1 management thinker by Thinkers50, a biannual ranking of the most influential global business thinkers. He is a trusted strategy advisor to the CEOs of companies worldwide including Procter & Gamble, Lego, and Ford. He is also a Professor Emeritus at the Rotman School of Management at University of Toronto where he served as Dean from 1998-2013, Academic Director of the Michael Lee-Chin Family Institute for Corporate Citizenship from 2004-2019 and Institute Director of the Martin Prosperity Institute from 2013-2019. In 2013, he was named global Dean of the Year by the leading business school website, Poets & Quants. His newest book is When More is Not Better: Overcoming America’s Obsession with Economic Efficiency. 
     
    THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR…Leaders looking to find a productive balance between purpose and profits.  
     

    TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… Roger and I discuss his new book and the history of American economics. For the first 200 years of the American economy, we witnessed a truly impressive performance and the economic life of the average American family got better. But, in recent decades, growth in the economic prosperity of the average family in America has slowed to a crawl. At the same time, the prosperity of America’s richest families has grown to a level never seen before. This combination of the stagnation of the average family and the enrichment of the richest Americans threatens American democratic capitalism. Roger provides a unique viewpoint on what has changed and why the helpful pursuit of efficiency has turned into a damaging obsession. He also begins to lay out how to bring about more productive balance. 
     

    WHAT  I  LOVE  MOST… Getting the opportunity to talk to Roger about a phenomenon that has become more apparent than ever in recent months!

    Be The Leader You Wish You Had and Pivot with Purpose with Stephen Shedletzky

    Be The Leader You Wish You Had and Pivot with Purpose with Stephen Shedletzky

    Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova.  

    This week I am thrilled to welcome Stephen Shedletsky to the What’s Next Podcast! Stephen leads Brand Experience and lead igniter at Simon Sinek, Inc. He ensures that every product, partnership, and communication reflect the organization’s most deeply-held beliefs. As an Igniter himself, Stephen is first in line to support those who seek to discover, articulate, and bring their WHY to life. With a knack for sharing the right words at the right moment, he delivers evidence-based content in a provocative, captivating, and light-hearted way. Stephen joined Simon Sinek’s team in 2012, answering fan email.  

    THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR… anyone looking to be inspired, find their “why,” and pivot themselves and/or their businesses into a purpose-driven, fulfilling venture in this strange new world! 

    TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… Stephen is all about inspiring people to live their purpose and live more fulfilled life. It’s very powerful when you can move around and through your purpose, or your vision of what you are trying to create! Earlier this year, the world seemed to change overnight… and suddenly we all needed to pivot rapidly. Stephen and the team at Simon Sinek immediately took to their task of creating–and helping others create–a safer, more inspired, and more fulfilled world in a NEW way. Like the rest of us, they knew they needed to reinvent themselves, their jobs, and their business models… Stephen explains that it wasn’t, and shouldn’t be, about individual credit. It’s all about improvement and cooperation. He also breaks down some of the work he and others are doing at Simon Sinek to help others jumpstart their “why” and articulate their purpose, identify the difference between confidence and arrogance, and internalize the power and process of the pivot! He also dives into finite vs infinite and which side the “game of business” falls. 

    WHAT  I  LOVE  MOST… It’s not just about pivoting your company, but pivoting yourself and it’s not a game of credit, it’s a game of improvement!

    The Innovation Stack: You Don’t Have To Be Qualified To Do What Hasn’t Been Done with Jim McKelvey

    The Innovation Stack: You Don’t Have To Be Qualified To Do What Hasn’t Been Done with Jim McKelvey

    Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova.  

    This week I am thrilled to welcome Jim McKelvey to the What’s Next Podcast!  Jim is a serial entrepreneur, investor, philanthropist, artist, and author of The Innovation Stack: Building an Unbeatable Business One Crazy Idea at a Time. He's the co-founder of Square and served as the chairman of its board until 2010, and still serves on the board of directors. In 2011, his iconic card reader design was inducted into the Museum of Modern Art. Jim also founded Invisibly, an ambitious project to rewire the economics of online content. In 2016, he became a deputy chair of the St. Louis Federal Reserve. 

    THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR… budding entrepreneurs and those who never saw themselves as the fabled “entrepreneurial type.” 

    TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… Jim shares his own history with and relationship to entrepreneurship, as well as the process of writing his exciting new book The Innovation Stack: Building an Unbeatable Business One Crazy Idea at a Time! Jim knows what it’s like to get excited about problems that need to be solved–like the genesis of Square. He takes this time with the What’s Next! audience to demystify the “myth of the entrepreneur” and drive home that it’s not just okay, but normal, to not necessarily be “qualified” to innovate. By definition, no one is yet qualified to do what hasn’t been done! If you’re doing something new you don’t get to copy, and you don’t necessarily get to feel qualified. Your awareness of timing is also huge, you can do the “right thing” at the wrong time and get a terrible result. You don’t get a guarantee, so get comfortable with discomfort and stop worrying about being the most “qualified.” Focus on the problem and fix through the fear! 

    WHAT  I  LOVE  MOST… His perspective and his bias for copying and competence. There’s no time to waste!

    Unblocked: How Blockchains Will Change Your Business with Alison McCauley

    Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova.  

    This week I am excited to welcome Alison McCauley to the What’s Next Podcast!  Alison is the founder and CEO of Unblocked Future, a firm that helps organizations pushing the frontier of emerging technology to communicate vision, build ecosystems, and go to market. Alison is also the best-selling author of Unblocked: How Blockchains Will Change Your Business, and a frequent keynote speaker about the impact of emerging technology on our lives and our world.  

    THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR… anyone working on or interested in data science and analytics or blockchain technology and anyone intimidated by it and seeking to learn! 

    TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… We’ve seen a dramatic breakdown in supply chains during this time and this pandemic… In this episode, Alison McCauley breaks down emerging technologies in a way that informs the laymen and the savvy professional alike. She discusses the reshaping of the ways in which we conduct business, supply chains, selling and marketing, even cybersecurity and bringing humanity to tech, and (of course) blockchain! According to Alison, blockchain can provide hugely beneficial transparency and visibility when you have competing interests all touching the same ecosystems, and simplify otherwise unnecessarily convoluted processes.  

    WHAT  I  LOVE  MOST… Alison’s Protopian viewpoint of technology and her enthusiasm for human-focused design in tech!
