No, I'm Not Crazy but I Hike Barefoot! with Greg Stern

Reefer Madness: Saving the World with Christian Campbell

Reefer Madness: Saving the World with Christian Campbell

In the 1930s, the movie Reefer Madness was the centerpiece of a campaign to discredit marijuana. Almost a century later, actor/entrepreneur Christian Campbell turned it into a musical satire and commentary on manipulation and propaganda. In fact, the industrial uses of Hemp might be a significant piece of climate-friendly business. But how to spread that message when you can’t advertise the product?

Join us for a lively discussion about reefer, propaganda,  madness, musicals and saving the world.

Supercommunicators with Charles Duhigg

Supercommunicators with Charles Duhigg

We all know people who seem to effortlessly connect with anyone they talk to. 

What's their secret?

Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist Charles Duhigg spent years researching this question and finding the answer. In his new book "Supercommunicators," he explains that great communicators are always working on three levels: the practical (what this is really about), the emotional (how we feel), and the social (who we are).

Great communication begins by recognizing which conversation you're in. In this livestream, Charles will share the simple yet profound lesson: with the right tools, you can connect with anyone, anywhere. Don't miss this chance to gain the communication superpower!

Misbelief with Dan Ariely

Misbelief with Dan Ariely

Join me for a chat with social scientist Dan Ariely to discuss his new book, Misbelief. He'll help us understand why even smart people find misinformation so seductive.

Given the problems facing the world today, and the prevalence of accidental and deliberate misinformation, we're sure to have a lot to talk about.

Dan is a leading behavioral economist and author. He is the James B. Duke Professor at Duke University. His research focuses on how even smart humans behave irrationally. He has written best-selling books including "Predictably Irrational" and "The Honest Truth About Dishonesty." Ariely has co-founded several initiatives such as BEworks, Timeful, Genie, and Shapa that apply behavioral economics to real-world situations.

The Enneagram in Business
 with Karl Hebenstreit

The Enneagram in Business with Karl Hebenstreit

Do you know what drives your team? Your co-workers? Yourself? I thought I knew myself, too. Until Karl Hebenstreit helped me see otherwise.

Author of "The How and Why: Taking Care of Business with the Enneagram," Karl will explain how you can use a psychological profile called the "Enneagram" to understand yourself, your team, and your blindspots.

We'll use me as a case study. I took the validated Enneagram inventory and the results were unexpected. I wanted to see myself one way, and the inventory said something different. Through our livestream discussion, we'll explore how to resolve that gap, and how to understand the strengths and weaknesses of learning your (and your co-workers/partner's) actual approach to life.

Indistractable with Nir Eyal

Indistractable with Nir Eyal

Learn to overcome distraction! Our modern life is built for distraction. Indeed, that's the basis of many high tech companies' business models—to take us away from the highest and best use of our time, and "engage" us on their platforms. Sometimes the reasons are benign. There may be a misguided 22-year-old who thinks "engagement" is the goal of their product. Often, the reasons are actively exploitative, as they want to shove ads in our face hoping to distract us even further.

Nir Eyal rose to fame as the author of "Hooked." He intended engaging products to be used for good. His latest thinking is embodied in "Indistractable," which tells us how to wrest our lives back from all these engaging products.

What will careers look like going forward? In just the last year, the work world has been changed by COVID. Before that, the rise of the gig economy.
