    "People: Dare to Build an Intentional Culture" with authors Mark O'Donnell, Kelly Knight & DJ DuBe'

    "Psychological safety is about creating an environment where employees feel secure enough to take risks and voice their opinions without fear." - Mark O'Donnell

    "Core values are not just words on a wall; they guide hiring, firing, and all major decisions." - CJ DuBe'

    "Love in business is about treating people with respect, valuing their contributions, and supporting their growth." - Kelly Knight

    -------------------------------------------------------------------  

    In my latest episode of "Joseph Jaffe is Not Famous," I had the pleasure of hosting Mark O'Donnell, Kelly Knight, and CJ DuBe', the brilliant minds behind the book People. Our conversation centered around the single most important asset you will ever have in your growing business - people - and to that end, the importance and essence of building an intentional culture within organizations that protects, nurtures, preserves and energizes your people.

    Some of the key takeaways from this episode include:


    Building an intentional culture requires courage and repetition over time through core values alignment and accountability. 

    Visionaries and integrators play complementary roles in guiding business growth when they have good chemistry and share core values. 

    Genuine care and concern for individuals, not just business needs, creates high psychological safety and job satisfaction. 

    Personal and professional goals can align when the right people are in the right seats within a supportive culture that harnesses human energy effectively. 

    Living the "EOS life" is all about doing what you love, working with people you love, making a real difference, being compensated appropriately AND having the time to pursue other passions

    "When we Walk By" with author, Kevin Adler & the role we can play in ending homelessness in America

    “Society has already defined them (the homeless) for us; you'd never see me as a housed person, yet their identity is their lack of housing.” - Kevin Adler
    -------------------------------------------------------------------

    Rebuilding social support systems and providing financial assistance are key parts of addressing homelessness.

    Lifelines with Melissa Bernstein

    Lifelines with Melissa Bernstein

    “Play is not just for children; it is a crucial piece missing from our adult lives." - Melissa Bernstein
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    In a truly inspiring conversation on "Joseph Jaffe is not Famous," I had the honor of hosting Melissa Bernstein, co-founder of the immensely successful Melissa & Doug toy company, and now the visionary behind Lifelines. Her journey from creating beloved children's toys to pioneering a new approach to adult well-being is nothing short of inspiring.

    Melissa shared the story of her career, highlighting the innovative spirit that has driven her from the beginning. She recounted the early days of Melissa & Doug, where failure was a frequent companion. However, these failures were not seen as dead ends but as stepping stones. Her collection of "forgotten toys" served as a laboratory for future success, proving that timing and persistence are key in the journey of creation.

    Some of the key highlights from this episode include:

    1. Creativity comes from collecting life experiences and allowing them to "simmer" in the unconscious mind before recombining them in new ways.
    2. Success is not black and white - it involves timing, small changes, and embracing perceived failures as learning opportunities.
    3. Finding meaning and purpose in life is a lifelong journey that involves constant self-discovery and developing authentic relationships.
    4. Engaging the five senses through activities like adult play can help relieve stress in a joyful way by getting out of the mind and into the body.
    5. True creativity comes from the human ability to combine experiences in imaginative new ways, which AI has not yet been able to replicate.

Synchronicity, Fun, and Learning.

As a podcast guest, I’m often put on the spot with hosts who DONT do their homework.

So color me happy when I appeared on “Joseph Jaffe is Not Famous” and was blown away by the fun, synchronicity that happened with Joseph.

Excpetional Recording, Great pre show, post show experience, even gave me a link for all the files and assets for my own use.

That’s not even covering THE SHOW.

We talked about BrandScience, and lo and behold, he extrapolated nuggets for the guests out of me, and even connected about painted rocks. You’ll have to listen to find out!

Great show, would join and listen to again.
