We are Family?

Most companies no longer feel like 'family'. But the 'free agent' approach has limitations as well.

My guest today is Ben Casnocha. He is the co-author of a new book entitled The Alliance: Managing Talent in the Networked Age. Ben and his co-author Reid Hoffman (co-founder of LinkedIn) discuss a new model for managing talent in this new age. Learn more about Ben by checking out his blog at http://casnocha.com/blog.

Who is an example of someone that has significantly impacted who you are today? Whether they were a formal mentor or not, who is someone that has notably contributed to the person you are and the success you enjoy today?

My guest today is Dr. Mark Goulston. You may recognize Mark as the author of a very special book entitled Just Listen: Discover the Secret to Getting Through to Absolutely Anyone. With the recent death of one of his mentors, the concept of mentoring is top of mind so we spent some time together discussing the topic.

Do You Feel Influential?

Project managers are influencers, though we often think of other sides of the business as the ones who influence the most: senior executives, lawyers, salespeople, etc.

Our guest today is Alfonso Bucero, MSc, PMP, PMI-RMP, and PMI Fellow. He is the author of a new book entitled The Influential Project Manager: Winning Over Team Members and Stakeholders (Best Practices and Advances in Program Management Series). Alfonso shares insights to help you improve your ability to influence your boss, sponsor, team, and other stakeholders.

Seeing What Others Don't

How is it that we can so easily not see things? When making decisions, we can be blind to better options. When planning a project, we can be blind to risks that are lurking. When listening to a problem from a team member, we can be blind to the fact there's actually a problem!

My guest today is Dr. Gary Klein, author of Seeing What Others Don't: The Remarkable Ways We Gain Insights. Gary has written a wonderful book that we explore in this discussion.
