You might be a leader in a large corporation, fresh into the workforce or with 30 years under your belt. Or maybe you are a small business owner or entrepreneur. Whichever it is … you are good at what you do. You feel safe, but keep wondering how long you have before what you do is automated, outsourced, off-shored, replaced or just made obsolete. It will happen. Nothing stands still! Your options are to stay the course, leave for another opportunity or do your own thing. All of them require transformation.

I worked in Silicon Valley for over 30 years. You only succeed in that environment by continual transformation. Through conversation and interviews, I will share lessons, stories and case studies that will help you understand how real people at work and play balance priorities every day to make a living and provide the best life possible for themselves and those around them all there while with an eye on the future.

At the very least I am going to make you think.

No fluff

I like this podcast because it doesn’t spoon feed you - it is thought provoking and yet accessible at the same time. No gimmicks just good company and talk. I like the ideas shared here and the host is a great guide.

Fantastic and varied content

The guests are varied and as the title implies it’s about people and their interactions with other Hunan beings which drive their success. It’s not a touchy feely podcast but gives practical actionable advice which you may employ immediately to improve your personal and professional life. Highly recommended!! Give it a listen and check it out for yourself.
