At the end of the day, leadership is about people: the people we lead, the people we work alongside, the people we learn from, and the people we aspire to be.

Today we speak with Ian Walker, Senior Director of Leadership and Employee Development at Salesforce, about the people – and the experiences – that have shaped his career, and the lessons he’s learned along the way.

We also discuss the world of tech, the future of artificial intellegence, and some simple strategies for fostering happiness and fulfillment in the workplace.

Happiness means different things to each of us. After doing extensive research, Management 3.0 founder Jurgen Appelo discovered a common thread: Happiness is something we create. It is not something to achieve. It is a path you choose, not a destination to arrive at.

So many of us spend our lives in pursuit of happiness. Instead of searching for it, we need to find ways to live it, embrace it, and implement it into our daily lives. That's why we created the 12 Steps to Happiness at Management 3.0.

If you have a career, chances are you’ve experienced failure. You’ve made mistakes, you’ve questioned your ability to do your job, you’ve wondered if maybe you shouldn’t just give it up all up and try something new. Today's guest knows those feelings all too well.

For years, companies around the world have been embracing “people-first” philosophies: the simple idea that happier employees drive better results. Lately, however, that idea is becoming more complicated.

How can companies continue to put their people first, even while embracing artificial intelligence? How will AI impact workplace philosophies - and workplace culture - in the uncertain years ahead? 

We sit down with Rich Fernandez, a pyschologist, emotional intelligence expert, former member of Google's people team, and current CEO of SIY Global. We discuss the ongoing AI revolution, and how companies can maintain a people-first workplace, no matter what the future brings.

What do we really mean, when we talk about diversity, equity, and inclusion? Are they just corporate buzzwords? Are they opportunities for investment? Are they philosophies for recruitment or human resources? Or are they strategies for building happier, more welcoming, and more productive workplaces?

Today we sit down with Kyle Samuels, a sought-after consultant, founder, and CEO who believes that DEI can be all of those things. But, above all, he believes that they’re just good business.

For many businesses, culture is a “tomorrow” concern. When we grow, when we scale, when we reach a certain number of employees... then we’ll focus on our workplace. But what if your culture is the very thing holding you back from growth?

We discuss how businesses can build positive, productive, and brave workplaces, growing into the companies they want to be, when tomorrow finally arrives.

The world has always moved pretty fast. Recently, however, it seems to be picking up speed.

Every time we adjust to a new way of working – or a new way of leading a team – a new, radical transformation appears on the horizon. Right now, it’s AI and the rise of the robots. Tomorrow? Who knows. 

Today we sit down with Doug Camplejohn, a renowned tech executive and startup advisor with more than two decades of experience working with companies like Microsoft, LinkedIn, and Salesforce. We discuss the AI revolution, the future of workplace culture, and how Doug's latest venture - Airspeed - is working to connect and celebrate employees in a digital world.

What happens when people-first policies run up against the demands of a profit-centered world?

Is it unrealistic to believe that companies can value culture as highly as they value sales? Or is it fantasy?

Today we sit down with Catrin Lewis, a renowned author and workforce expert who has embraced that very idea. We discuss her work, her views on workplace culture, and her acclaimed books about unicorns, vultures, and the very real power of employee engagement.

*Some companies call them "Hero Awards." Others call them "Hugs." We call them Kudos. It is a written and public recognition of a colleague for something they have contributed to the team.

A Kudo is not just given from the top down, but peer-to-peer and bottom-up, across departments and organizations. Anyone can recognize someone else's work. It's a way to break down hierarchical limitations and to encourage everyone to offer instant positive feedback.

In the wake of the pandemic, many wondered if the radical workplace changes we saw would last, or if they would fade away as the world returned to normal. Now, three years on, we know for certain – many of these changes are here to stay.

Employees and organizations have new priorities, new values, and a stronger sense of what they’re looking for in a workplace. Workers want more freedom, more organizational trust, and fair benefits and compensation.

Today we chat with WriterArmy founder Sully Chaudhary, who has been embracing those ideals for the past decade, working to build a culture, an environment, and an engaging virtual office that allows team members to thrive from anywhere in the world.

Learn more about WriterArmy here: https://writerarmy.com/about/

In a post-pandemic world, workers want to retain their flexibility and have the best of both worlds: an office to meet and collaborate in, and the freedom to work remotely. The new norm is "hybrid," but what does this mean in practice? What are the challenges and opportunities of this form of working, and how can leaders rethink collaboration formats and decision-making?

To answer these and many more questions, we have created a module on remote and hybrid collaboration. To learn more and find upcoming workshop dates, visit www.management30.com/module.

The world’s largest trial of the four-day work week was recently conducted in the UK. And the results were hard to ignore. Many participants said that “no amount of money” could get them to go back to the way things were. 

Today we sit down with Juan Gutiérrez Plaza, an executive with the London-based company Scoro, which has fully and successfully adopted a four-day workweek. We talk about its implementation, its impacts on employee happiness and productivity, and Plaza's recommendations for other leaders who are considering the move from five days to four.

Careers never follow a straight path. There are ups, there are downs, and there are wild circles and zig-zags. 

But what happens when the path just... stops? 

What happens when we get stuck in a position or a state of mind for so long that it begins to feel permanent? How can we shake off that feeling of paralysis, and get moving again?

Today we sit down with Markus Neukom, a leadership coach, business strategist, and CEO who specializes in helping leaders get unstuck, enabling them to create meaningful, lasting change for themselves and their organizations.

There are a lot of management models and theories out there, and they all sound great. The problem is that they can be heavy on theory, which we don't always know how to implement impractical terms. For example: What can you do concretely on a Tuesday afternoon to work better with your colleagues?

It takes a lot of effort to build a positive - and empowering - workplace culture, especially in today’s world of digital offices and remote work. But what happens when things start to go wrong?

Today we sit down with prolific tech leader and workplace culture expert Anna Marie Clifton. She discusses her work with companies like Asana, Coinbase, Yammer, and Vowel, and her unique approach to workplace culture "makeovers," which can help organizations identify problems, shift workforce perspectives, and transform even the most toxic environments in as little as six weeks.

People often think of emotional intelligence as a personality trait. You’re either born with it, or you’re not.

But emotional intelligence is a set of skills. It can honed and developed over time, allowing us to better understand ourselves, maintain positive relationships, and cope with major challenges in effective ways. 

Today we sit down with Robin Hills, director of Ei4Change, a global organization that has provided emotional intelligence training and coaching to more than 250,000 people all over the world. We’ll discuss his work, his books on emotional intelligence, resilience, and behavior in the workplace, and how emotional intelligence is helping business leaders and professionals navigate challenges and build happier, more fulfilling careers.

Learn more about Robin here: https://ei4change.com/

And what would it look like if we're able to accurately understand what people around us are thinking, feeling, and wanting? Emotional intelligence is a powerful competence that can really set you apart as a top performer.

Happiness can mean different things to different people. For some, it’s achieving a lifelong goal. For others, it’s landing a dream job, or making an impact on the world or building a better life for family and friends. And for some, it’s simply a long string of good days. 

Today we sit down with Ian Sanders, a renowned storytelling trainer, professional optimism instructor, and author of the acclaimed book 365 Ways To Have a Good Day. We’ll discuss his storied career, his many detours, and how, after decades of trying, he finally learned how to string enough good days together to build a rewarding, happy life.

**What leads to a happy life? What are the various ways to be happy? 
 
Happiness means different things to each of us. And, after doing extensive research, Management 3.0 founder Jurgen Appelo discovered the common thread: Happiness is something we create. It is not something to achieve. It is a path you choose, not a destination to arrive at.
 
So many of us spend our lives in pursuit of happiness. Instead of searching for it, we need to find ways to live it, embrace it, and implement it into our daily lives. That's why we created the 12 Steps to Happiness at Management 3.0. You can find more information and even download a free poster of the 12 steps at www.management30.com/practice
