Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova.
This week I am beyond thrilled to be bringing you our sixth What’s Next! BONUS Episode with the Tom Peters (a second-time What’s Next! Guest)! For this special episode, I'm sharing my January, 14th LinkedIn Live chat with the “Red Bull of Management Thinkers” as we discuss excellence.
Tom Peters is the co-author of In Search of Excellence—the book that changed the way the world does business and often tagged as the best business book ever. Seventeen books and thirty-five years later, Tom is still at the forefront of the “management guru industry” he single-handedly invented. As CNN said, “While most business gurus milk the same mantra for all it’s worth, the one-man brand called Tom Peters is still reinventing himself.” His most recent effort is The Excellence Dividend: Meeting the Tech Tide with Work That Wows and Jobs That Last (Vintage, 2018). Tom’s bedrock belief: “Execution is strategy—it’s all about the people and the doing, not the talking and the theory.” In November 2017, Tom received the Thinkers50 Lifetime Achievement Award. (Effectively, all of Tom’s written and spoken material covering the last 15+ years is available—free to download—at tompeters.com and excellencenow.com and his Udemy course is now available here!)
THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR… leaders, managers, self-starters, men, women, and anyone in search of excellence!
TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… In a time of great turmoil where leadership and excellence have come into greater focus, Tom Peters is here to help us navigate the implications of this time on the rest of our professional careers. The way you behave towards your fellow human beings–particularly towards those for whom you are responsible–is the very definition of your professional life and legacy. This is a time for thoughtfulness, caring, patience, and understanding–and the world past-COVID should be as well. Another point Tom would love to drive home in this episode is the undeniable advantage having women in positions of leadership can afford your organization and your bottom line. Tom shares his wealth of experience, his wonderful insight, and answers some of the What’s Next! audience’s burning questions live on the line.
WHAT I LOVE MOST… Tom’s unstoppable energy, humility, and compassion, and how he fearlessly spreads his message of leadership steeped in humanity.
