Ep. 912: Shannon Polson Interview with Michael Covel on Trend Following Radio

What does it take for women to succeed in a male-dominated world? At age nineteen, Shannon Huffman Polson became the youngest woman ever to climb Denali, the highest mountain in North America. She went on to reach the summits of Mt. Rainier and Mt. Kilimanjaro and spent more than a decade traveling the world. Yet it was during her experience serving as one of the Army’s first female attack helicopter pilots, and eventually leading an Apache flight platoon on deployment to Bosnia-Herzegovina, that she learned the lessons of leadership that forever changed her life. Where did these insights come from? From her own crucibles of experience—and from other women. In the The Grit Factor, Polson made it her mission to connect with an elite pack of tough, impressive female iconoclasts who shared with her their candid stories of combat and career. This slate of decorated leaders includes Heather Penney, one of the first female F-16 pilots, who was put on a suicide mission for 9/11; General Ann Dunwoody, the first female four-star general in the Army; Amy McGrath, the first female Marine to fly the F/A-18 in combat and many more. These women led at the highest levels in the most complicated, challenging, and male-dominated organization in the world. Now when positive role models of women leading are needed as never before, Polson brings these voices together, sharing her own life lessons and theirs with storytelling flair, keen insight, and incisive analysis of current research. Bio: Shannon Huffman Polson served as one of the first women to fly the Apache helicopter in the US Army. In addition to her military service, she is the founder of the Grit Institute and speaks frequently on topics related to leadership, courage, resilience, and grit.

Ep. 911: Eric Crittenden Interview with Michael Covel on Trend Following Radio

Eric Crittenden believes using an all-weather approach is the most effective way to prepare for a wide range of market environments, while still producing meaningful investment returns with limited downside risk. An all-weather approach is an asset allocation methodology that diversifies across geographic regions, asset classes, and investment styles. This approach helps investors navigate prolonged equity market declines, inflation, and negative real returns from bonds due to low interest rates. Historically, an all-weather approach has achieved higher returns than equities, with lower volatility, and smaller declines. Bio: Eric Crittenden is the Chief Investment Officer of Standpoint Funds. He has over 20 years of experience designing and managing investment strategies, with an expertise in systematic trading in both mutual funds and hedge funds. Aside from creating sound investment strategies, his ability to simplify and communicate complex topics is what sets him apart from other investment managers. Tom Basso is the Chairman. He brings over 40 years of money management experience to Standpoint as Chairman of the Board. He was the Founder and CEO of Trendstat Capital, one of the largest futures managers in the U.S. in the 80s and 90s. Tom’s successful career has been highlighted in the book The New Market Wizards by Jack Schwager.

Ep. 908: Scott Anthony Interview with Michael Covel on Trend Following Radio

Leaders have experimented with open innovation programs, corporate accelerators, venture capital arms, skunkworks, and innovation contests. They’ve trekked to Silicon Valley, Shenzhen, and Tel Aviv to learn from today’s hottest, most successful tech companies. Yet most would admit they’ve failed to create truly innovative cultures. There’s a better way. And it all starts with the power of habit. In Eat, Sleep, Innovate, innovation expert Scott Anthony and his team of coauthors use groundbreaking research in behavioral science to provide a first-of-its-kind playbook for empowering individuals and teams to be their most curious and creative—every single day. Anthony reveals a collection of BEANs—behavior enablers, artifacts, and nudges—he and his team have collected from workplaces across the globe that will unleash the natural innovator inside everyone. Bio: Scott D. Anthony is a senior partner at the growth-strategy consulting firm Innosight and author of Dual Transformation, The Little Black Book of Innovation, and The First Mile, among several other books.

Ep. 906: Rob Chesnut Interview with Michael Covel on Trend Following Radio

“Show of hands―who in this group has integrity?” It’s with this direct and often uncomfortable question that Robert Chesnut, General Counsel of Airbnb, begins every presentation to new employees. Defining integrity is difficult. Once understood as “telling the truth and keeping your word,” it was about following not just the letter but the spirit of the law. But in a moment when workplaces are becoming more diverse, global, and connected, silence about integrity creates ambiguities about right and wrong that make everyone uncertain, opening the door for the minority of people to rationalize selfish behavior. Trust in most traditional institutions is down―government, religious organizations, and higher education―and there’s a dark cloud hovering over technology. But this is precisely where companies come in; as peoples’ faith in establishments deteriorates, they’re turning to their employer for stability. In Intentional Integrity, Chesnut offers a six-step process for leaders to foster and manage a culture of integrity at work. He explains the rationale and legal context for the ethics and practices, and presents scenarios to illuminate the nuances of thinking deeply and objectively about workplace culture. We will always need governments to manage defense, infrastructure, and basic societal functions. But, Chesnut argues, the private sector has the responsibility to use sensitivity and flexibility to make broader progress―if they act with integrity. Bio: ROBERT CHESNUT is General Counsel of Airbnb, Inc. A graduate of Harvard Law School and the University of Virginia, he worked for fourteen years with the U.S. Justice Department as a prosecutor. He joined eBay in 1999 as its third lawyer and founded its Trust and Safety team.

Ep. 904: Roger Martin Interview with Michael Covel on Trend Following Radio

American democratic capitalism is in danger. How can we save it? For its first two hundred years, the American economy exhibited truly impressive performance. The combination of democratically elected governments and a capitalist system worked, with ever-increasing levels of efficiency spurred by division of labor, international trade, and scientific management of companies. By the nation’s bicentennial celebration in 1976, the American economy was the envy of the world. But since then, outcomes have changed dramatically. Growth in the economic prosperity of the average American family has slowed to a crawl, while the wealth of the richest Americans has skyrocketed. This imbalance threatens the American democratic capitalist system and our way of life. World-renowned business thinker Roger Martin starkly outlines the fundamental problem: We have treated the economy as a machine, pursuing ever-greater efficiency as an inherent good. But efficiency has become too much of a good thing...
