Hello everyone,


Whether you lead a company, a team, or you are getting yourself ready for leadership, this podcast is for you. We have been having so much fun interviewing guests for Season 2 of the Creative Disruption Show. We found that conversations about addictions, lowered performance - even sex, would often come up in our conversations. We explored solutions with experts on how to prevent burnout and struggle with colleagues and others who control resources. We decided to call Season 2: Sex, Struggle, Strategy.


Leading an organization today is not for the weak of heart. Disruption is inevitable, and it’s scary. According to a Dell Computers survey of 4,000 executives across 12 countries, 52% of executives experienced significant disruption in their industries over the last three years, and almost 50% of executives said they don’t know what their industry will look like in the next three years.


No matter what business you’re in, people are a vital asset, and an asset that is constantly at-risk. Like you, your entire team is regularly confronted with unanticipated and unavoidable change. Human reaction to change is varied. Sometimes people dig in, avoiding change with entrenched inertia. Sometimes people spin out, innovating and iterating without a plan, focus, or results. Either way, reacting to rapid change without a pro-active plan makes the whole company feel threatened, anxious and overwhelmed. The Creative Disruption show allows you to step away from your responsibilities - just long enough to examine your company’s response to change and experience an injection of insight or inspiration.


We want you to ask us the tough questions, the questions the leaders I coach regularly ask me:

  • How do I change how I lead when we are growing rapidly, or I have to cut back resources. What do I do when I see we are losing traction in the marketplace?
  • How do I get my ideas heard? How do I prepare the Board for change?
  • How do I mobilize my organization or team? How do I neutralize conflict?
  • How do we prevent burnout and stress, retain and engage people during change? And last but not least,
  • Do we have a bench strength of talent for the future?

Well, my team and I have been finding the answers for you. We have been mining the most current research, science and thought leadership around creativity, disruption, innovation, high performance and engagement to bring you answers to these questions.


The confidence and well-being of many leaders has been shattered as they fall prey to disruptive forces around them. Don’t be a victim of change.   Join us on Tuesdays on your way to work, during work or on your way home to learn how you can creatively disrupt status thinking at work and at home.


See you next week,
