I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Larry Whitler and Robin MacBlane on WOCA’s AM Ocala radio show yesterday. Larry and Robin are always lively conversationalists and we discussed a broad range of subjects exploring how companies create and sustain competitive advantage in the today’s global economy.
Some highlights from the interview include:
~ The strategic imperative of cultivating creative thinking throughout businesses, especially at every customer touch point.
~ The generational shift of 10,000 Baby Boomers retiring daily (a trend that will continue for 17 years) and its impact on the workplace.
~ The cross-generational challenges that can emerge between Baby Boomer leaders and Gen Y and Gen X associates with technical expertise.
~ The neurological foundations of people’s resistance to change.
~ The plasticity of the brain and the neurological research into Emotional Intelligence and creativity.
~ How to promote creativity in the workplace through the use of novel stimuli, education, and coaching.
~ How Performance Transformation employs Equine Facilitate Experiential Learning to cultivate Emotional Intelligence, leadership competencies, team cohesion, adaptability and creative thinking with leaders and knowledge workers.
