Tailoring a Message

We sell something everyday. Asking someone to go to a movie, offering advice to a friend, listing a product on our website. We’re trying to move people to take action and we do this through the messages we send – the text on our website, conversations, videos, etc. But messages aren’t a one-size-fits all – what makes sense to us may leave someone else confused.

Vulnerability

Safe to Try

Your favorite comedian wasn’t born funny. Their best jokes came after a ton of awful ones. Every joke starts as an idea. And it’s risky to try out ideas. You could fail, embarrass yourself, and lose out on time and money. But the bigger risk may be that your idea could help someone, but without trying, it never will. In this episode, learn how to reduce some of the risk and find places where it’s Safe to Try. Toby Arsalan is an up-and-coming comedian in Berlin. He’s tried out a lot of ideas and has great advice – good ideas don’t matter, it’s executions that do. Oh, and he’s funny! Zack Bazzi is a co-founder of TentED, helping to advance the education of children displaced by war. Zack is a veteran of the US Army and Army National Guard and was deployed toBosnia, Kosovo, Iraq and Afghanistan. He works as a consultant in Iraq and while there, he supports organizations that are helping kids to earn an education. Anne Kjær Riechertis CEO and co-founder of theReDI Schoolof Digi...

What You Don’t Know

Whether we want to admit it or not, there’s a lot we don’t know. As a leader, it might be tempting to keep this to yourself. You don’t want to appear like you don’t know the answers. By relying on ourselves, we’re limited by what we know. But once we know what we don’t know, we can do something about it that can lead us to something better. Gaya Datar is the co-founder of Earth Enable. She’s on a mission to eliminate dirt floors. 80% of Rwandans live in homes with dirt floors. This increases health issues like asthma, malnutrition, parasitic infections, and diarrhea – one of the leading causes of childhood death in Rwanda. Listen to Gaya’s story about how she started Earth Enable and how she learned the power of humility. Sarah Cronk is the president and founder of The Sparkle Effect. After seeing how difficult it is for students with disabilities to fit in, she launched an inclusive cheer squad for kids with all abilities. The idea that started in high school has grown int...

What You Don’t Know

Knowing Yourself

To really know ourselves is hard. We mix who we wish we were or who other people think we should be with who we actually are. Looking at our strengths, weaknesses, goals and fears – we might not like what we see. But once we know who we are, we can be our best. Rachel Faller is the founder of zero-waste fashion company Tonle. Norma Bastidas is an ultra-athlete and record holder for the world’s longest triathlon. Trafficking is in our cities, the country, suburbs. If someone you know needs help, there are resources. In the US text a message to BEFREE (233733). Credits: * Josh Harlan – Intro Jingle * Lee Rosevere – CC BY 4.0 * As I was Saying * Late Night Tales * Old Regrets * Love Wins * jahzzar –CC BY-SA 4.0 * Polaroid * Winter Sky * Two Days * Part I * Yesterday * Little Glass Men –CC BY-SA 4.0 * The Magic Bullet * Kelp Grooves * Bright Night * Golden If you liked this episode, please share it with one friend.

Belonging

Belonging may seem like an abstract concept for business, but look at brands like Harley and Apple. People wait in lines for the newest products, have meetups, swap stories, and even have special hand signals when they see each other on the road (for Harley riders only). They are part of communities. This is important because a change isn’t driven by a product or service, but by people. And people support ideas where they belong. Katie Clark is a professor of Transcultural Nursing at Augsburg University and works with student nurses to run the Augsburg Central and Cedar-Riverside Health Commons. Katie can literally talk with anyone and make fast friends – she’s great at connecting with people. Charlie Rounds is one of the most passionate people I’ve ever spoken with! Talking with him made me want to do something – take action. He’s fighting for equality around the world. Most recently, he founded the Mossier Social Action Innovation Center, supporting LGBT social entrepreneurs...
