"Bob Rosenberg on dose of leadership, former CEO of Dunkin donuts. I am so excited to have you on the show. Welcome pleasure. Well, you got this new book coming out in October, round the corner to round the world, your lessons of that you learn running Dunkin donuts I love Dunkin donuts by the way I think copies outstanding pilot. Now, go through the airport I always bypass starbuck's sorry starbucks and I always go straight to Dunkin donuts that coffees just so good to music to my ears. You know I was reading your bio and it said you graduated from Harvard Business School. Told me this right and your twenty five and you became the CEO when you're twenty five is that right? That's correct within weeks of my graduation I had in my early career I basically virtually grew up. Over the store I worked in lots of different jobs within my family business, which is not call Dunkin donuts gone universal food systems and a variety of different jobs I went to hotel school and went into the army, and then went on to graduate school in. Expected to join the family business but Lord knows I had no expectation that it's twenty five I dad who is only forty seven at the time eighth grade educated Guy Returns to me. And asked me if I wouldn't take over the responsibility of CEO. At his business said the REF aching request and that one third few weeks to decide upon. But ultimately best decision I ever made man the yeah. Obviously a life altering one of those decisions in life that that. was definitely a y intersection the road, and you had to make a choice. You went down that path and there was no looking back. Once you did. But Man Twenty, five, I can't imagine you know that was almost twenty seven years ago for me just the the leadership lessons I've learned from twenty five to fifty, two AB. been. I can only imagine you with your experience it had to be a minimum exponential. So the type of leader you were at twenty five to when you stopped in one, thousand, nine hundred and what do you think the big differences were one of the things that was an advantage early on in the first soda, era I break the book down into the six areas that I that I see as the company history from nineteen, sixty, three to. Nineteen Ninety Eight. But in the first era, the big help was business school and it was there that I learned the language to strategy. I would love to say that I came to the job as a copy twenty, five year old into it. All right I think I matured and and made my mistakes and boy did I make a lot of mistakes over those thirty five years if that the thing that I think the grew was my emotional intelligence. To better understand myself an-and away to. Hopefully understand my teammates around me franchise on his and the people that I came in contact with end consumers. and. It was a journey I. Mean I would absolutely say that It's an old saying, but it's true in my case no, you can't put an old hat on a young body. You do have the Soda Lauren through trial and error and I think truthfully, in my case, the setbacks experience were more informative and more useful. than the successes in fact, a big mistake the after the five I five is of tremendous success, the second five years or really difficult, and it really came as a result of the success of the first five years. It became an impediment to future success in it wasn't until. Unfortunately almost led the team off a cliff in the second five-year era that I really began to start to learn the more effective lessons about who I was what my responsibilities were. As a leader. and. It came from a book of all places. Really my my soda moment transformational moment for me. He uses a book that you read was kind of a transformation moment, moment or. Second Year of a second era of Maya my stint as CEO, and after the first five years basically was under pressure to go publican. And when I came out of Business School Isaiah inheritance universal systems where eight little businesses it was it was excused chaos and fundamentally what the team did is we basically narrowed that down a one we had really been experimenting with far too many businesses and we say basically decided to exploit the the sort of the diamond in the rough that we. Had which was a bunch of stores in many cases, soul breakfast lunch called Dunkin donuts and made donuts and coffee, and we decided to focus on our core business and quiz extraordinarily successful and we went from one hundred thousand dollars in pretax profit within five to seven, hundred, fifty thousand and we went public because my dad I've been trying to sell the business. While I was in business school was unable to sell from billion dollars. It'd become the billionaire always wanted to be after taxes and that was the reason he turned to me I. Think at that Young Age is he wasn't quite sure what to do and. Put me in charge. Then I changed the vision, change the dried to keep up unreasonable injectors and. Drove the business off a cliff I was sitting there amidst. Stockholder suits, franchisee lawsuits reading a book called the best and the brightest by David Halberstam. And it was a book about the Johnson and Kennedy Administration of the Vietnamese War, and what he maintained was even though the administration are governmental Mister show run by these Ivy Leaguers the best the brightest our country at the offer they never really went into the hamlets and into the front lines where the war was being waged the final what the true story was while the con-, winning the hearts and minds of the townspeople in the leadership in the towns. And Halbe Sam said the great fault lie in the fact that our leadership. Suffered from what he called Hubris the Greek word for arrogance in sitting in that chair and I remember like it was yesterday I said Oh my God Halberstam could be talking about me. Yeah it was in that and I decided I. You know I was blaming Franchisees for suing us and. Problems that we're having in terms of Mike. One of my key executives left the company because he had lost faith leadership fellow had gone out of business school with. An and basically we convened our management team. We decided that as leadership we'd never blamed. Martine. Mates are followership take a hundred percent of the responsibility hundred other responsibility. And that we that invite, we apologize for the Arab always we invited franchise on his end to noodle out with us what we did on how we can improve it. We decided we're GONNA go each of us to visit a hundred stores a year each in order to touch the front is travel with the district manages visit the store talk to the owners. Get very important in we created an advisory council. So fundamentally, we did a one eighty in terms of our attitude about how were leaders particularly need what my responsibility was in it all came from that that insight that momentary it's insight from that one book that was transformation I love that story the book was called the best and brightest what what was the full in the brightest by David Halberstam? Think Nineteen, seventy-three, it's it's it's bestseller it was. An important book at the time. In my view, it's still a great management.
Shopping for Health Care: How Consumer Can Use Purchasing Power to Get What They Need with Deb Gordon
"Welcome back to the outcomes rockets Sal Marquez here, and they have the privilege of hosting for the Second Time Miss Deb Gordon, she's spent her career trying to level the playing field for health care consumers haven't listened to the first podcasts with DAB. You've gotta go listen to it. It's all about the consumer and healthcare. She's all about you. She's all about your employees and how you can get the most for your healthcare dollar. She's the author of the healthcare consumers manifesto how to get the most for your money based on research she conducted as a senior fellow. At the Harvard Kennedy, School Center for Business and government she's a former health insurance executive and health care CEO. She's an aspen. Institute health innovators fellow and an Eisenhower fellow, her research and commentaries have appeared in USA Today, the Harvard Business Review blog, and on network open. She holds a B A in bioethics from Brown University and an MBA with distinction from Harvard Business School and I'm excited to dive into her work again around the consumer's manifesto deb such a privilege to have you back on. Hey, saw. Thanks so for having me back. Yeah, absolutely. So you've been busy. I have been busy. That's true. I spent probably a year doing research for this book and another year writing a not exactly that split but I spend a good two years of my life producing this baby and it is exciting to come back and tell you about it because when we first met, I was just starting to think about it. I was just starting the research and listening to what consumers had to say. So I'm excited to be back to talk more about it the same here and so dab you know obviously. So listeners goal isn't a DEB's podcast. This you get a deeper appreciation about her time as an insurance executive and what has inspired her work and focus in the consumer sphere but a little bit about the book. Dab. You know what's the focus area? What are the takeaways at a high level? Sure. So I wrote the book mainly to expose the human side of healthcare costs like what is really going on for people when we go to the doctor or were phasing an insurance decision and we have to pay. For it and I was really taken with the fact that so many people of all walks of life come to me and say because I used to work health insurance they know I know something about it and they just say what should I do and you know the most extraordinary people who've accomplished so much in their lives walk into my office at the Kennedy School at Harvard and alike, what health insurance should I buy and I. It just dawned on me that if people like that need help and it's Legitimate that they do. It's very confusing and can be overwhelming like what chance is you know everyone else have of making sense of these decisions. So that's the motivation that I I brought into the book and then in doing my research for it, I heard story after story of consumer. So real people who are trying to get value for their healthcare dollars whether they use those kind of terms or not I say like shopping for healthcare is a thing we could do people don't use those words and they don't even. Know what I'm talking about. But you know I interviewed people about their experiences spending money on healthcare and what I learned is that although it feels really foreign to put that into shopping terms or you know we know how to buy things but we don't know how to shop around in healthcare and. It doesn't mean we're not able to. That's I think the biggest takeaway is that we do actually have more power than we might even realize and that the first step is to just ask the question, what if what, if I could get what I needed? What do I need? Why do I need this? Is there an alternative and just almost like re imagine ourselves as a customer when it comes to healthcare this is Dr is nervous and unhappy by the way, but it's not a slight against doctors. It's just you know what I think consumers need for whatever reason we need permission almost to think of ourselves as entitled to get value for our healthcare dollars.

John S. Couch: The Art of Creative Rebellion
"And Gentlemen, please put your hands together and help me welcome my friend. That's that's an infection. You'd see you too. Thanks for joining us. Really appreciate it. Our say the beginning of the show this is a question I ask everybody because we live in this age of influences although I think that's a terrible title but nonetheless. I'm one of the things I always want to know is who is someone who we might not know or even consider who has been a major influence on you and on your leadership. Well there's The usual suspects that people talk about whether it's talking about Peter. Drucker. From a management perspective and two usual kind of business school books approach to but in reality for me a lot of. My corporate influences have been really nontraditional. So. There is a book called the art spirit by an artist named Robert. Henry from the Ash can school in eighteen. Ten. Nineteen twenty really early times who interestingly enough he He kind of broke down in enlightened my thinking about creativity along time ago and interesting enough I find a lot of the things that that influenced me over time. Or less the business books no less the how books in really more books that were philosophical. So a one level Robert Henry's take on creativity. Of starting with what you have in once you are in working from there was incredibly important. I would say from a strategic perspective when I was a teenager a book called the Book of five rings by Miyamoto Musashi, which is the the book that the probably considered to be the greatest summarize Japan wrote in the sixteenth century about strategy literally ten days before he died. And it's kind of the sun, Suu, art of War for Japan, but it's much center. And actually was adopted by the Harvard Business School. Thirty years ago as required reading and in that book it talked about. How humans are essentially broken down and Thomas elements of wind fire and water in the void. And talked about how you lead teams and so a lot of ways was interesting for me is the fact that this summary. Talked about the fact that human beings are multi variant the metaphor for him. Was the idea that when you're actually pulling together people, you don't try to make one-size-fits-all actually aknowledged what people's capabilities in what their? Lack of talents and whether great talents are without judgment. So the analogy was you're building a house and some would is used to support the house and it's very maybe gnarly and but stick it strong and you hide it behind the walls and you have been near would which is very thin and grab for a beautiful and you put that towards the front and you know the metaphor goes on you know with the idea human beings are the same way and that you wouldn't expect a beautiful. Veneer Wall to be a supporting column of would within the House in the same way to the metaphor goes when you're when you're hiring people and when you're actually trying to build a culture that you hire and you don't thank will this person needs to conform into this particular role that I'm trying to fulfill but you actually look at them and say, well, the role trying to fill is one part of the overall capabilities at this person. On Larry. And if you're. Smart about it, I think what you do you use the Job Description at you're putting out in the world is a way to attract talent. But if you do it correctly, the job itself is just one part of the overall capability of the person. You can actually almost van Diagram Denise between the business and within Russell needs are the personnel are, and if you can kind of do that crossover where they intersect, you can actually unlock two to three x the capabilities of that person. So probably long winded answer to your question, but does two books were interesting of a huge influence to me?
Brother helping brother to cure Rare Disease
"Welcome rich and Karen. Thanks for having us go to be here. Thank you for coming. I know it's a bit chilly today. So I'm glad that you braved the elements to come on out here anytime anytime. So can you tell us a bit about yourselves? And your personal stake in cure diseases mission. Rich let's start with you. Jor Happy to So as you mentioned I'm the President and founder of cure disease. I started the organization bit over two years ago because I have a younger brother. Terry who has a disease called Duchenne muscular dystrophy as you alluded to Terry's form of do Shan is quite rare. His specific mutation type is very rare and the difficulty. With that is he's not amenable to Clinical trials for the most part because of both his age as well as ambulatory status. These group of rare disease patients aren't left behind. So you grew up with Terry. Obviously was this sort of something that you would always in the back of your mind starting on organization like this or did that idea come to you later. It's a long answer. I was trying to give you the short version of it so Yeah I grew up at Terry. Terry's four years younger than I am. we both grew up in upstate. New York we're big fans of star wars and playing catch outside when he still could Years ago in the back of your mind whether you're me or somebody else. That's impacted by rare disease. You have the idea that you want to do something. Oftentimes you don't know what I struggled with the idea of. I don't know what to do for a long time till I had the opportunity to go to Harvard Business School and partake in the volcanic fellowship at Harvard. Business School and through that I was able to me really really incredible people who were doing really incredible things to advance science and advanced therapeutics that we're lifesaving and lifesaving and one of those individuals. Dr Tim Mu at Boston Children's hospital and that's really where the story begins. Cool so care and let's move on to you. How did you get involved with care rare disease? What's Your Story Shar Well my name is Karen Morales. I'm forty two years old and when I was twenty and a sophomore in college. I was diagnosed with extremely rare form of muscular dystrophy. Though at that time was called my Oshii myopathy so over the course of the last twenty years. I've spent a lot of my time and mental resources on ways in which to keep my health in a positive trajectory ways in which to avoid the most negative of diagnostic outcomes. That I was told about when I was twenty so as part of that I always stayed very open to what was happening in medical research and through the powers of facebook finally enough. I came across a video that riches organization did last spring so spring of twenty nine thousand nine hundred and in that video I heard about the power of crisper something that I had been monitoring. I just hadn't seen anybody doing it for muscular dystrophy given my background in advertising and marketing and now I own my own agency I reached out immediately and told rich. I wanted to talk to him that and turned into coffee and a phone call. And we've been working together ever since. Could you tell us a little bit more about muscular dystrophy? Karen we start with you. Know it probably has different developmental trajectories but can get like a baseline of what the disease looks like. Sure so. There are many types of muscular dystrophy. He's like large Disease categories for most of us. We are missing or our bodies stops producing effectively a certain type of protein. They're different types of protein in different disease states. In my case it's despair Lin In Dijon its destruction and the impact of what that protein does varies by disease type so in my case the digital muscles so the ones away from the center core of my body my calves and my arms weaken over time it for my particular type. It's not a life ending diagnosis. It's potentially a life altering diagnosis right. So there is a large level of variability between the different types. And how they actually present. But the common thread across all muscular dystrophy is is until now they've been untreatable. And the majority of folks facing these really rare diseases have to take a lot of their medical care into their own hands. And I think that is a shared history that both Terry and I and the other patients in this group all have. It's with a lot of personal trial and error and working to advocate for yourself that you're able to receive the care that you need because it is still in many cases an issue that doctors and hospitals and emergency rooms don't see that often So it can be easily mis read misinterpreted and sometimes cared for in ways that are actually have adverse reactions for the patients. Themselves has terry had a similar experience to Karen in terms of his disease. Strict trajectory Terry has had a similar experiences. Karen had in with regard to his disease. In fact he had a recent fall just over the holiday where he collapsed and broke both of his femurs and the difficult challenge was living in an upstate and rural part of New York that there wasn't an immediate care center nearby that could deal with not only two broken femurs but underlying condition of do Shannon and so a lot of work is put into connecting. Terry's neurologist whose doctor Brenda Wong at the University of Massachusetts in a collaborator of ours with the care team at that hospital in upstate. New York to ensure that the proper things were done that propofol was used for instance for anesthesia in instead of a gaseous form of anesthesia. And so it's little things like this that have very big ramifications that we need to be very cautious of across the spectrum of rare diseases. Not just the muscular dystrophy but more broadly taking into consideration the patient's perspective in the patient's point of view in conjunction with the with the care team Rather than I think the traditional dynamic of the doctor being sort of the superior and the patient being the one who who accepts the information advocacy in the hospital setting is of utmost importance because it really does mean the difference between life and death as we found with my brother? What was the incentive for setting up care rare disease? I mean there are many routes. You could have taken to help Terry. So what made you decide to pursue this one? That's A. That's a good question so as I mentioned earlier during my time in business school I had the chance to meet Dr Tim you so I got to know Tim through through a mutual friend of ours and understood what he was doing the process that he was developing to characterize the patient to develop therapeutic construct specific to the patient mutation and then the rapidly test those and then get into dosing the patient all within a year and accomplish the and so meeting him. Obviously the question of mine came to mind is how do we take this applications for Batten's disease? And how do we apply it to a neuro muscular disease? Such as Duchenne Orlin girdle or any of the other number for diseases. That need help and so it was through that process. That was the spark for cure disease. As sort of as a as a patient caregiver sort of you look for those opportunities of hope where you can drive towards something. Quick rather than the traditional ten years and two billion dollars development cycle which forces. Today's patients to likely not be able to see tomorrow's treatments simply because they take too long. Karen what was it about riches organization or rich himself that convince you to sign on and help them out as being on their board of directors. It's the jokes. It definitely was a combination. Having lived through a rare disease for twenty years myself. I have followed the medical research and I've been involved in any trials that were available having also spent the majority of my life working with fortune. Five hundred companies globally introducing new products and working in a combination of Silicon Valley and traditional. Cpg Brands I was noticing that across medical research. It felt like the systems were antiquated. I knew my gene defect in the early two thousands and at that time I was told that there would probably be a five to seven year. Lag Be four therapeutics for available as a patient. I saw riches approach as something that had faster outcomes than what I was used to seeing Across the market. When I met him and I realized that he had put together. Such an incredible team of world renowned leaders across different medical institutions. I immediately was in and I've been a huge supporter ever since I think what this organization is able to do. As a nonprofit drug company will truly revolutionize the way that patients can have hope when they're dealing with these catastrophic
A Reason to Reveal Your Failures
"Success is a double edged sword hard work. Ken Come with amazing benefits like more pay more responsibility and and more stability but it can also carry jealousy competition and the resentment right along with it. So how do you keep. The scales tipped toward the positive well. According into new research from Harvard. Business School you can do it by talking more about your failures. This tip might sound counterintuitive. Isn't it important. Talk Your achievements. Don't you want people to know you're successful. Why would you ever highlight year failures right well? The thing is when successful people only talk about their success. They come off as egotistical and that can stir up what the Harvard Business School researchers call malicious envy. That's the kind of destructive envy that makes people wants to harm the successful person according to the researchers if you're really successful then it's likely that everybody already knows about your achievements admits it's more interesting and inspiring for people to learn about your mistakes and that makes sense right. I mean when you reveal both your successes and failures. The the team says you're more likely to stir a benign kind of envy. The kind that drives people to be more like the successful person instead of tearing them down. They found that people don't have less admiration for a leader when they know about the leader's failures and they still respect his or her status. The envy just becomes less harmful and more motivational national and as a bonus revealing past failure tends to make people think you're more deserving of success because that means you had to try harder to get there now you can still talk about your successes. That's especially true for people who are just starting out if you're a paper shuffling intern for example. Your colleagues probably aren't envious of you in the first place but as you claim the letter remember that it's good to talk about your failures to you won't fall down and you might even get to climb higher
Panera Bread/Au Bon Pain: Ron Shaich (2018)
"Ron Shake isn't a household name like you say Howard Schultz but you could argue that. What Howard Schultz did for coughing Ron shake did for cheddar broccoli soup or the SEO cheese he's Bagel because like Howard? Ron Wasn't just focused on product. He was interested in creating a space of place where people could hang out for a long time. Maybe even have a PTA meeting or social gathering and really linger over that Bagel or cup soup. This is the famous third-place concept concept that both Howard Schultz and Ron shake wanted to tap into in. That's how Panera became one of the fastest growing restaurant chains in the world. In fact if you've invested the seven thousand dollars in Pinera stock in nineteen ninety nine. You'd be sitting on more than half a million dollars by two two thousand seventeen now. The thing is if you met Ron shake say in high school. This is not the path you've predicted for him. Ron Wasn't even interested in business. Is Passion was politics. His parents were raging liberals and Ron grew up going to rallies and volunteering on campaigns. All over New Jersey eventually went to Clark University where naturally he majored in politics and he was quickly elected to student government. And that could have been Ron's life life except for one day when something happened to Ron and a group of friends something kind of small but something that when you look back on it probably probably changed his entire life. Yeah so we. We were in a local convenience store called store. Twenty four cross the street from the main entrance to the Clark campus and they accused US shoplifting and tossed us out cecily guys just being rowdy earnings or wild. No we were shopping but I came back to campus episode and I was in my dorm with a couple of friends and I said you know. Why are we shopping there? How they can they treat us like this? What supports that store? We said what do we need what we can we can do this ourselves. We can have our own convenience store and I said you know this isn't going to be that hard. Let's go do it. And we approach the university. They weren't so keen on this but I moved the question to student body They voted in support of it and I basically agreed to spend that summer between my sophomore and junior here opening this convenience store guy. Wow So. What'd you guys Sal We sold Everything from drinks to Munchies two cookies and candy and you know our assistant manager would come to my apartment at five in the morning and we actually would go to this deep discount supermarket and buy I don't know ten or fifteen baskets full of merchandise that we'd stocked the store with and We hired twenty or thirty different students to work there. I will be very franken. Saint Joe's more interested in that store than when I was in my own academically. And and your guy who's all still focused on public policy in government but I guess this it was Kinda cool you liked. He kind of liked doing business running a business. Yeah and and you know. I didn't see myself as that kind of guy and it took me a wile to make sense of that but in so many ways running a business is no different than campaign in fact a campaign is a the business that that essentially has one day in which it ends a business campaign that goes on and never ends so at this point in his life. Ron Wasn't quite sure what he wanted to do. Business or politics but people around him saw how how much he loved running that convenience store and a lot of people said. Hey why don't you get an MBA. So Ron did he enrol at Harvard. Business School in Nineteen seventy six. And when he finished unlike a lot of his classmates who went into banking or finance ron decided to go into retail and he took a job in the mid west and a place called held the original cookie company. Twenty stores in shopping malls We grew it to about one hundred and twenty five. I took the job as the third year of the NBA. What I mean by that is I took a job as a district manager? Basically Iran ten or fifteen of these cookie stores half the United States and I spent went My time running around the country and I ended up opening thousands of these cookie stores around the country so as certain point you're learning about the cookie business I guess and then at a certain point you get this idea like hey I can do this myself. I can have my own cookie store yes and and I can literally remember traveling Cross Indiana. I'm away to Fort Wayne Dope a new cookie store and it hit me and I said why are we opening this in a Mav. There's a huge opportunity open these in in an urban setting. Why don't we open one and I can remember going to my boss? I remember him taking me to meet. Beat the CEO of the company. Said I wanNA open an urban cookie. Store looks him and he says we don't do that here. We Open Mall based retail units. I thought to myself well. If you're not GONNA do it. I'd like to go do it. Why shouldn't we and I'm the Kinda guy by Sam going to do it? I want to go do it and it led led me to actually resigning my job and I moved back to Boston and I started looking for real estate and the reality was. Nobody would Li space for cookies. Find any sir for cookie store because they thought it wouldn't make enough money to pay the rent. 'cause I had no credibility. Yeah I had no real money I had you know no balance sheet to sign a lease and so I went to my dad and I said I I want my inheritance. Whatever it's going to be I want the opportunity to use it and I had about twenty five thousand dollars Ned Essentially let me. He gave me seventy five thousand dollars and that one hundred thousand dollars became the GRUB stake the equity. That allowed us to build that. I four hundred square-foot cookie store. Wow in downtown Boston. What did you name the store? We named it the cookie jar and I can remember. We took the toll house recipe. Right it off the bag. I bought a small mixer and I would pass out cookies in front of the stories that we were building. It and I'd start to adjust the recipe based on what I learned talking to customers and and you were the baker. You were making cookies yourself. Yeah we opened. There were three employees. I made it was me and to folks I will never forget at that day. It just seemed like people never stopped walking a coming in and purchase fifty thousand people day going by and I'll never forget it. I got to the end of the day walking past or foot traffic. Yeah but I got to the end of that at first afternoon. We opened one o'clock guide and by six we closed and my back was hurting. Oh and legs were hurting. And I can't in the money and I I realize we only brought in four hundred dollars. I mean you forget when we talk about business what it is the self the four hundred batches of cookies buck each and the amount of energy and work that goes into

Travel there on Welsh because back in she brings him good spots in for me. It was necas most of the time and I used to go to school. So Primary School in high school in I'll be walking. People become mention my sneakers and it took me a long time. Jackie free to create. That can actually make a business again. Why I'm wearing? I can actually bring to the people make some money so I sent it to source some sneakers locally inside. I got them for about twenty dollars. I got the start up capital from my mom I got them between Dawes. in-and-out seldom for about sixty dollars. So I mean some good profits in good the public money off that business I did that for a few years. And then I ventured into music so music writing music producing music. And I'm I'm doing the Polish Abang concerts and stuff like that so Figuring out how the music business works in that giving another arm armaments to learn how to build a business to learn how to make money radium. Each I moved here to the US. When I was nineteen I move for school? ooh And I studied computer science It was very interesting because I actually. I wanted to study business but I remember one time whereas Doing my assignment a friend of mine. Who Mentions me till this day your side Vm? He he told me hey. I think you'd be really good at computer. Sciences should try it out and I tried chided up and I never looked back. Site initially went there to study business and I change into computer science I studied in the smell coach. Westminster College in Fulton Missouri every small casing but again heavy time. GimMe opportunity to focus and to build myself as an engineer Either back on payments in the payments industry so I started off my sophomore year. Interim Mastercard work through software engineering in Minnie eventually a fulltime start working for them within biometric authentication. So that's been my core experience in fulltime. So that's been fun and lastly ask you Just recently moved to the bay air so the months ago I moved here actually three days ago as exactly three months. Oh still new to the area. I'm looking forward to exploring the era meeting more people right so this is just like A visual of my journey so the first one obviously a very happy mander was a struggle. School is struggling computer science met. That's what I studied in the struggle by that was the stock to Mike On right side Suicide my former company mastercard. I was basically working with the team on pitching a new product. And then on the bottom. NAFTA's about two weeks ago at my company Verizon media where I was lunching my product media commerce across Fanti company so that was finding new and in the middle was before I left mastercard. I didn't own your career panel where talking about the importance of knowing you are in making taking that risk to do exactly what you'd like to do in which for me was moving from software engineering product which is really fun. And then on the Bottom Reich. Mike is Me and Harvard. Business School with few Khalid's their house. Basically doing some diversity recruiting which something really passionate about in I still I don You're doing that for her as needed right so started. So what is product management. And so this is the industry definition. I have watched hundreds of Product School Jones and I always see this. Come up all the time if you go if you do a quick. Google search is the same as an intersection said a defining part on the intersection of US tech and business and then in the middle of magic you there. That's what they call the product management. What I agree with this Sunday by actually like using take a few aspects is a big element that's missing so this stakeholder management basically between us experience on January and business which could be marketing in sales and so forth? But there's no immensely add tate's the product manage. I feel like being being a product manager. Also it means that you need to manage yourself so I think that's using here so my a different version. I think it's missing you as a product manager. It's a big element there and you'll see wise relates to imposter syndrome and then there's some other Aspects that could doesn't actually say what you do as a product manager doesn't indicate why you do what you do and then how you GonNa do those things knock greedy evidence within the diagram so wise park management so I think I believe park management basically communists to things. So it's the why and the watts. That's what the product manager owns to the Y.. is going to be the traffic strategy. And then what is is going to be the product roadmap that you define based product strategy And then basically across this you're GonNa define what commensal wet solvent that always problems to solve in product management by product manager. It's your job to kind of define on actually decide what's important to solve in prioritize and in all this is brought together by the product. That's the bottom so this is my definition of park measuring
David Rubenstein talks to Ray Dalio
"David Rudenstine sat down with Bridgewater associates co chairman and co chief investment officer ray Dalio to discuss his early life and how we got hooked on the markets so you grew up in Long Island and where you're from a wealthy family no like that was a jazz musician very lower middle class when you were a young boy were you interested in the financial world or what were you most interested in growing up when I went I got hooked on the markets when I was twelve because I used to caddy and I would take my money and I put in the in the markets and everybody was chatting about the markets so on how did you do well the first stock I bought I book because it was the only company ever heard of that was selling for less than five dollars a share and I figured I could buy more shares of went up and make more money that was my strategy her work and it worked and I have a work because this company was about to go broke and somebody came along and acquired it and it by local it went up and I said this game is easy then decided that I would be involved in the markets in this game is anything but easy so in high school were you interested in academics or were you a good student no I had at our school I did cut classes a fair amount of classes to go surfing did you have a hard time getting into a good school calling all yeah I got into CW post college on probation probation on probation okay and what he did well there I loved college okay I love college because well besides mixing the all the fun that college gives you it also when I like this and I could pick the subjects that I was interested in and I am so I look I love college right you must have done research well because you got into Harvard Business School yeah I did I got the upgrade grades when you graduated what do you do so in my two years it's a two year school in in my summer I like to trade commodities I got in trading commodities now this is down summer of seventy two and so nobody ever for more business school wanted to commodity division but I went to Merrill Lynch's commodity division I said Hey can you give me a job the director of commodities in that summer gave me a job job to help them around nineteen seventy three we have the oil shock bear market in stocks commodities is the hottest thing was hired as director of commodities at Dominic and Dominic having never done anything and the director of commodities but as part of and that's so that's what I say let out eventually though to set up your own firm yeah the so I that was seventy three seventy four big bear market in stocks are the Dominic and Dominic essentially went broke I went to what was sandy Weill's firm CBO Leo Hayden stone at the time became Shearson Hayden stone remain above the law because of our did all those mergers I became in charge of institutional commodities in other words hedging of all different things hi and that put me with all different futures markets and then we got into the environment where seventy four seventy five you got into this environment where the interest rates targus a monetary policy all of those things were driving all the markets so that got me hooked on those markets but anyway I got fired from there because I was a bit rowdy did you find someone that can share some thoughts in the face for the appointment book that's not a good way to prepare for that was but that was it was new year's eve we got drunk on new year's eve and you punish somebody other than your boss didn't think of that anyway he but it didn't last long okay okay so you have to always started the farm because I was and because the clients who want to do business what year was at the start of the firm nineteen seventy five so it grew truth from one or two employees to how many well in nineteen eighty two it was I I think there were eight employees a in here at one point and then I had a terrible eighty two so and then it came down to one employee so nineteen eighty three or so it was just me you have to borrow money from your father yep so let me tell you about the moment so nineteen eighty nineteen seventy nine eighty eighty one I calculated that American banks had lent a lot more money to emerging countries of those countries will get paid back and I anticipate that there would be a debt crisis and with that an economic crisis so that was my thinking and August nineteen eighty to Mexico defaulted on its debt and a number of countries fallout and so because I said that I got a lot of attention about that and I thought that was going to be producing a bear market in stocks and I could not have been wrong more wrong August nineteen eighty two was exact bottom the stock market and I was wrong and as a result of that let's take my employees are lied to let them go I lost money for myself on was money for and I had to borrow four thousand dollars from my dad it was the most painful one of the most painful experiences but it was one of the best experiences that ever happened to me in my life that was Bridgewater associates co chairman and co chief investment officer ray
A Historic Glance at Business Modeling
"Let's have a bit of a story standing about visas. Modern edges want to give you a <unk> overview. I'm not gonna go through the key dates because is a waste. Are we gonna need the probably few hours session for that but the radio to give you a respectable <hes> how the concept of business modeling actually in developed over the years in how he and i think it's very important so that you can understand also the misconceptions around me then you can actually appreciate this this concept even more so this is another episode of the business of the digital business mandis podcasts offer by the floor week m._b._a. Tweet grandma. If we look at the concept of this model actually it wasn't the actually <hes> something that was born. <hes> during the digital earlier i mean was something that was born really throughout the fifties and sixties but as it seems probably the time it was not that really a complete understanding or understanding as we have today or business models but you know there was a date when it actually formed i think is very important to understand because most most of us in mecum price when i started to look into dumping believed that this concept was actually probably born with web of course the web were <unk> delighted about the really the years if we are to today to throughout the fifties and sixties steps when the concept i started the to appear than just give you a beat the historic standing out the seventies and the eighties more precisely in nineteen seventy nine there was an article ah by professor michael porter harvard business school which actually was entitled how competitive forces sheep strategy and it was really intent. Were really the years in which <hes> was born as the framework around the visas strategy and understanding <unk> competitive advantage awebber however <hes> took out the word up he said the concept of business strategy and competitive advantage reading moved along the concept of controlling the supply chain or like controlling owning the assets that would enable you to actually have a control of the supply chain but over the years i really am the whole concept of business strategy especially as we move toward two thousand actually exchanged any was a fleet upside down as we would see she from companies like comments in google and from platform at business modest but it is another day the when we move forward in this time line he's probably the years when we go from ninety six to two thousand four which we can lead to the the really the rise employed alba alba the dot dot com companies so relieved was the boom bust of the dot and if you're not aware of speed the video in which accompanies started to to try to prove the viability of the internet and really <hes> they were not much business tools available at the time if not really
"harvard business school" Discussed on Who? Weekly
"So she's still works for her. Some capacity was around her can't so. Now the question is they can't civil get scanned by her own employees, or is she s the kingpin of the whole entire Harvard Business School online like scam situation. I mean. Her first time being kind of in some shady business because you respect the rocker camera on kinda cough arou- on Twitter YouTube about I giving money from my directors including stuff, and she's just always been involved in shady business, the constant like a lot of hip hop pets. So a sale got to say. Can I say, well, my actually be the person who's running this whole thing? And this Christian guy myself just got in, you know, the short in the stick basically the point is that that that this scam this Harvard Business School acceptance letters scam goes like deeper than just this one guy like there's a whole there's something going on. I also looked up Karen civil and Harvard Business School and she also posted like got into Harvard Business School. So basically, she might have been scanned by her co worker, or she's like helping the scam is what this woman is saying, which I believe will an interesting thing that happens now, so you so it's like like the caller was saying this guy Christian emiliana was working for Garin civil who has this like lifestyle site, like various popular like social media accounts. But she also has this blog this like site, but like a lot of contributors, and so when you Google Christian Emiliano and Karen, civil you get one of the first results is I mean this. This website is constantly this website was updated as recently a couple of days ago. Like, it's it's a current website. And when you Google Karen, civil Christian Emiliano, you get a link to the author page for Christian Emiliano author at live civil and then when you click it it says there's a four oh four era. So it looks like all of his articles have been deleted. She she scrubbed him out of all of her stuff. Oh, so maybe he did fucker over. Yeah. Maybe he fucked her over. I mean, I it's it's hard to talk this point. But like fan. What a weird scam. It does seem like he's the mastermind not her. I mean, I know that the caller was like maybe Karen's involved, but it seems like she's also just being played by this guy. Yeah. But you know, interesting. So it gets it gets really deep. It gets deeper. It always gets deeper there. So many college admission scandals so many there's so many, and this is just a whole new level of of this is now like business school older people scandal higher education is a scam though in general, like even two straight up higher education is a scam. So what's also craziest? We're calling these scam scams. But the basis of all of these is an actual scam. Oh, yeah. You know, Halen in Bobby on. I was listening to your episode about Dr Phil son, and I had stopped in call you because I have a personal story about an interaction with one of doctor Phil's other children. So to speak that I thought you might appreciate long story short. I was working for production company. And we went to go pitch some ideas to Dr so and we were sitting in this conference room and his people came in. And they're like, hey, just say no doctor Phil's about to come in. And he's bringing in. Dog. And we were like, yeah. Then then they're like, no, listen, very carefully. You cannot look at this dog. You cannot pet this dog. This dog is very aggressive. You must pretend the dog not there. And we're like, oh, that's weird. And then Dr Phil comes in with the dog we have to like try not to look at the dog. The meeting goes on the dog is like walking around around going by her feet. It's touching us. We can't touch it. We can't look at it. It was terrifying. Is so confusing, and you know, actually meeting went pretty well. But after that, he asked if we wanted to get a picture with them, and we're like, okay. And then he took us through his office, which I have to tell you I now I I'm sorry. I understand it a bit more because I was shocked, by the way it was decorated..
Jack Dorsey, Shoshana Zubov And Harvard Business School discussed on Recode Decode
"In the red chair is Shoshana Zubov, a professor mirada of Harvard Business School who's written several books about technology and economics. Her most recent book is called the age of surveillance capitalism. The fight for a human future at the new frontier of power, that's a lot there. That's going on. So let's talk a little bit about your background. So people get a sense. This is getting a lot of attention your book. And especially I I've been using the word surveillance quite a lot especially about surveillance economies surveillance states and things like that a longtime issue in human history. But now, it's never more important than ever. So why don't we talk a little bit about how you got to writing this particular book and some things you've done in the past who left here a little bit of your background. Well, I think the impetus for this book, which has been a long time in the making seven years just to produce this book, but many years before that and the the ideas and development. The real driver. Here's the sense that Har hopes and dreams for the digital future. Our sense of an empowering and democratizing. Israel future was at the beginning, which it was at the beginning. And a sense that this dream was slipping away. And that the reasons why it was flipping away the causes of this shift were we're not really clear, not really well understood forces taking shape very much behind the scenes, and it's almost like we woke up and suddenly the internet was owned and operated by private capital under a kind of regime, a new economic logic. That really was not well understood. And so my motivation CARA has come from really wanting to spend the time to understand to name exactly what this economic logic is and how its own imperatives its own compulsions created a completely different trajectory toward the digital future. Something that we didn't buy into yet. We did. Expect and because it's so unprecedented. It is by its very nature difficult to perceive. Absolutely. And also typical control and I like the word compulsion. Because I think that's a really good way to put it. It's it's an emotional word. But it's not it's actually it has to do what it's doing. It has to do what it's doing it to machine that's got to move in a direction that it's moving and the people in it are not bad people. They're not bad actors, but they themselves now are caught up in an economic machine that sometimes they even don't understand very well, and where it's driving and what its imperatives are. And most important what the consequences of those are interesting. I just did an interview on Twitter with Jack Dorsey that was sort of a bit of a goat rodeo. But it was interesting because a lot of the questions like a for specifics, and he couldn't do them. And it was really fascinating people found that part the most fascinating besides the platform being. Terrible to try to conduct any kind of conversation on. But we let me get here for your background talk about some of the things you've done before this. And then I want to get into the term surveillance capitalism, which I think is a fantastic way to put it. Let me hear rectory of your career. What you you've started where to get to this kind of topic? Well, as far as my professional career I began studying the shift to the digital and nineteen seventy eight. So where are you going to care? Fantastic. But I'm actually quite old hats off. So I'll date myself. I'll come right out there and date myself. I mean, I I started in nineteen seventy eight interviewing office workers Linux type workers factory workers who were the first the front line of our workforce that was shifting to the digital medium.
Creating Psychological Safety in the Workplace
"It was the late nineteen ninety s medical mistakes at hospitals were a big problem and researcher Amy Edmonson had a moment of panic. She had been studying different teams in the same hospital. She wanted to know do better teams make fewer mistakes. But what she found was the opposite of what she expected turns out the most cohesive hospital teams reported making the most mistakes, not fewer that surprised her until she realized maybe the better teams weren't making more mistakes. Maybe they were more able and willing to talk about their mistakes this became Edmund since influential nineteen ninety nine paper, titled psychological, safety and learning behavior in were teams since then the research has piled on showing that psychological safety can make nut just teams, but entire organizations perform better it's been ten years since Amy Edmonson was a guest on the HBO idea cast and she's back on the show today. She's. Is a professor at Harvard Business School, and our new book is the fearless organization, creating psychological safety in the workplace from learning innovation and growth, Amy. Thanks so much for coming back on the show. Thank you for having. It's great have you here because psychological safety. I can't tell you the number of times it has come up in each cast interviews in it's fun to talk about it. Now. Also with hindsight of what you've learned over the last couple of decades. Now, this term psychological safety, you say, it's not it's not the best term. Why not you know, the term implies to people a sense of coziness. You know? Oh, I'm just everything's gonna be great that we're all going to be nice to each other. And that's not what it's really about. What it's about his candor what it's about as being direct taking risks being willing to say I screwed that up being willing to ask for help. When you're in over your head. Why is it that probably more people would say that they don't feel psychologically safe at work than than others? I mean, it it still seems like it's not the norm. It is not the norm at all. In fact, I think it's it's. Unusual which is what makes it potentially a competitive advantage. The reason why psychological safety is rare has to do with aspects of human nature human instinct, for example. It is an instinct to want to look good in front of others. It's an instinct to divert blame in. It's an instinct to agree with the boss and hierarchies or places where these instincts are even more exaggerated. We really wanna look good. And we especially wanna look good in a hierarchy and the spontaneous way to try to chief. That goal is to kind of be quiet on less. I'm sure that what I have to say will be very well received especially by the higher ups, and these are like phrases, we we know in real life too. Like better to be safe than sorry. Right. Don't rock the boat. Don't rock the boat. You know, no one ever got fired for silence. Right. And you know, I think we tend to. To play not to lose. Right. We stay safe. I wanna look good. I wanna perform well learning is great. But it will not in front of people. I don't wanna have the part of learning that involves me to fail along the way. I wanna learn from when that other person it carry us learn, yeah. Yeah, they have to learn firsthand that this doesn't work and have everybody. See my failure. I'd rather not. Yeah. Let's talk about a disaster to where psychological safety has not been present. And it led to financial ruin it led to colossal business failures. So one of the best examples recently is Wells Fargo, which in two thousand fifteen was considered one of the world's most admired companies. It was the shining star of banking for anybody who doesn't know at this is a US Bank with a long history, right and very much kind of customer oriented, Bank, household oriented Bank. And their strategy, which I think was a good strategy was to really push on cross selling course once you've made a customer relationship. It's easier to leverage that relationship sell that that customer more products rather than you know, the extra cost of building new relationships made sense to really emphasize cross selling by the men if somebody has a savings and data count a car loan, and maybe get a home loan credit card. And in fact, they had a slogan going for great where it's GR eight read the idea was I should be able to sell you eight different financial services products. So nice idea and soon this idea runs up against the reality of customers limited wallets, but rather than the the executives getting the feedback from those, you know, boots on the ground. Instead the message just kept coming top down. You must do this. You know, people had the sense that they'd be fired if they didn't achieve the targets that they were set the managers were very tough and present. And so rich goal stretch goals. I love stretch goals. Right. I'm a big fan of struggles. But if you wanna have stretch goals, you better have open ears. So I think of the Wells Fargo story as a recipe for failure is stretch goals plus closed ears. So what ultimately happened was? Of course, the sales folks started crossing an ethical line. They started making up fake customers. They lied to customers saying if you buy this product, you also have to buy this product, right? I mean, they did dozen little things that were just inappropriate and wrong. And ultimately as is always the case this comes to light. So the beautiful success of Wells Fargo proves itself to be an allusion of success. Why do you see this as a? As an absence of psychological safety, rather than like, an incentives problem or or an ethics problems. There is an incentive story here. But in I could give you in your job a poor incentive. And you could give me feedback that you could tell me, you know, this actually doesn't work, and in fact, it's encouraging if you think about it, it's an courage in some behaviors you really don't want to encourage. And then I'd say, hey, that's really interesting. You're right. Let's let's tweak. Let's talk together about what would be the best incentive to optimize our performance. And and that's not what happened. So it's a psychological safety story. Because from what I learned people really did not feel it was safe to push back to say, this isn't working. It can't be done. So lovely strategy. But the strategy in execution is discovering some some new and important things about the. Reality of the market and in a in a well, run organization managers middle managers, senior managers executives would be quite interested in those data. And they would not automatically say these people just aren't trying hard enough. Let's push hard. Or what about an example of a company that has mastered psychological safety in the in the workplace and has gained that competitive advantage that that you referenced at the beginning the one industry that is a very challenging industry to succeed in and particularly to succeed in consistently is the movie industry. Most movie producers most movie houses will have an occasional hit. And then a few, you know bombs. So Pixar is a company that has had seventeen in a row. Major box office successes that evolve also been critically acclaimed. It's an unheard of success out. Size. It's outsized. Right. It's way it's way beyond the sort of just pretty good. And at cap mill co founder and longtime leader has gone out of his way and very deliberately to create and keep creating psychologically safe environment. Where candor is expected possible it critical feedback and they do this in two fundamental ways. You know, one is behavioral the other structural and the behavioral is that. That cat mill will often say things like, you know, he'll say, here's a mistake. I made right because leaders have to go first leaders have to show that they know that they're fallible human beings. He shows up with humility with curiosity with interest with fallibility, and then the other structural in a setting up meetings and sessions where they're designed in in thoughtful ways to make it easier for us to give each other candid feedback or to to really critique the movie and. And he'll say things like early on all of our movies are bad in their terrible. And he says that not because that's, you know, necessarily good news. But because he wants everyone to know that's just part of the journey. There's no way to get to magnificent unless we go through bad and inadequate and sappy and boring along the way, and we just keep pushing back, and we keep making it better in this film that I'm making his my baby. I don't want you to criticize my baby. But I have to kind of realize no, I do want you to because I'd much rather get it from you now, then get it in the box office later.
Use Your Money to Buy Happier Time
"I keep thinking about something that guests said recently on the show we have been living for several decades is kind of a tenant of life structure that are orgnization has created for us. We know where we're going to be at nine AM Monday through Friday. Our weekends are also structured around that because you know, maybe one day or part of days the day that we do all the chores. We didn't have a chance for that was Theresa a mob lay on episode sixty five she was saying it in reference to her research on retirement, but what really struck me is this idea that your job dictates your weekends, even dictates. How you spend your time off. And that's why I'm excited for today's episode. Our guest today believes people would be happier. If they spent more of the money, they earn at work to get back more of their time when they're not working Ashley Willens researches. The tradeoffs we make between time and money and says we often get those wrong. She says, we should spend more money. Not just on things we like, but to get us out of the things we don't enjoy say yard, work cooking or commuting. Ashley Willens is an assistant professor at Harvard Business School. She's also the author of the HP are article time for happiness. Ashley, thanks for coming on the show. Thanks so much for having me. Your research concluded that the happiest people use their money to buy time. And there's that phrase, you know, money can't buy you happiness. But you're basically saying that if more people used money to buy time that they could use that time to be more happy. Yeah. So we really liked to flip this Benjamin Franklin's adage on its head and say, well, if time has money, maybe also we can think that money can buy happier time, my research really focuses on using money to buy cells out of negative experiences. So subtracting negative minutes from our day subtracting time that we spend stuck in traffic subtracting extra work hours were were just spinning our wheels. And really, we should go home subtracting housecleaning, but really any way that we spend money in a way that might save us time such as also buying ourselves into positive experiences has reliable and positive effects on on the happiness that we. Get from our days or weeks or months and our lives. Even though people feel like the world is busier than ever, you know, you point out in your research that the average American for instance, has more time for leisure than they did forty years ago. And so it sounds like you're saying that now that people have more time, they just spend it earning more money or taking jobs that make them busier rather than using the time. Yeah, I think it's really interesting that, you know, work hours have gone down. But people are feeling more stress than I think, it's exactly that's we think that business is a status symbol, we focus. Our attention on getting ahead, especially in North American culture. So I think there's this element. One of the fact that even though we have more free time, we might fill it more with work or commuting really far away. Because we want to have this really nice house that we don't get to spend any of our time. And we don't get to enjoy because we're always commuting to work. Really, far and ubiquitous connection to the internet. Also means that we experienced what's some researchers have called time confetti, so not only maybe a retrying to filler time with more work in being more productive. But also, our time is more fragmented were more distracted, and that also contributes to these higher feelings of time stress, but also time is very hard to track. And so if we have windfalls of time, we often fritter them away. So it's interesting is that in one of our my clobbered or an ice studies. We find that buying time or spending money on time-saving services predicts greater happiness, reduces stress. Not because of the objective amount of time that we saved just to the simple act of thinking about giving up money to have more free time seems to make people plan their time a little bit better. If I'm going to incur this cost to have this free time, then I'm going to make sure I really enjoy the free time that I have. What do you make the argument though, that that future's uncertain and financial security or your financial future is often uncertain too? And so I guess some of the way we've been trained to think about time versus money as that like if you have time now and can make money you need to save. So that in the future when you're not working you have money to spend. Yeah. And I mean people who feel uncertain about their financial future or more likely to value money, and they get more thought his faction out of having that value. And that makes a lot of sense. If you're not sure what you're next five. Six seven years are your overarching goal in life should be Develey money. So that you can feel like your future is secure and safe much to what you're saying. And and I don't argue that that doesn't mean we shouldn't also be thinking around the margins of whether within our discretionary income bucket within the set of money that we spend in in ways that in. Enable us to enjoy our life that we shouldn't also be thinking about saving time. So that's why make the point. And my clobbered resign often argue that we need to be thinking about every time we open our wallet. What is to make a purchase discretionary income purchase? Is this money? Changing the way that I spend my time. What's one way that you have trained yourself to spend money on other things where maybe was counterintuitive of I, but really makes make sense when you value time correctly, you know, going through grad school, you have no time and no money, and you're constantly trying to cut corners in every way that you can and one thing that I did throw all of graduate school was live really far away from my place of employment. I would spend hours on the bus every single day for five years because it was cheaper. I could live in an of slightly bigger apartment with my partner. And I you save money that way. You know? And so when I moved for my my job, I had this intuition. This really strong sense that I should do the same thing should live in the most economical place, even if it's a little bit further away, and I really had to push against sort of every instinct that was saying, but think about how much money you can save in rent like just written his massive dissertation on the fact that we should value time over money, but we always get it wrong. When making major minor life decisions that I was like, okay. Actually like, you can do it. You can pay a lot of money in rent and live really close to work. So you can walk there. You're going to be new. It's going to be stressful. You have a million things to do. And that was one thing that I did recently. And I think it's added a lot of happiness to my life and really reduce stress. I walked to the office. I can walk. Everything's walking distance to my house. I feel like a lot of my behavior. Does come from. How I you know, I lived coming out of school. From a time when I had more time than money, and then just got used to doing everything myself. And there's also the kind of the American self reliance thing just being able to take care of household chores do things without having to hire somebody to do it. I think I know I I think this is part of the reason we see the effects that we see. So I have a another line of research with Laura park at the university of buffalo, and we look at how experiences in childhood around how much money you had and how how much income inequality. There wasn't an a place where you grew up shapes the way that adults think about their finances and make decisions, you know, fifteen twenty years later, and we do see that growing up in a more uncertain financial environment carries all the way through to adult hood. You know, doesn't Volvo a little bit of retraining again. I really want to return to this idea. That's about taking small act. Actions not doing anything to drastic but just sitting down and thinking about whether there's anything you can outsource that. You really don't like that stresses you out a lot that you can afford. And if there's anything on a daily basis that the answer to that question is yes, you should try it out try spending, some discretionary income that way, you know, other small ways I can be more efficient that I can give up some of my money to have more time direct flights grocery deliveries to my house. Not all the time. Not outsource everything. We show in our data that people who outsource too much experienced the lowest levels of happiness in part, probably because again, they feel like their their life must be so out of control. If they can't you know, if they can't even do one load of laundry on the weekend. So I think you also raise an important point. And we find this in our data. We wanna seem self sufficient one reason that we don't ask for help enough that we don't outsource enough even. When we're paying our hard earned money for someone else's time. As we want to feel like we can do it all especially in North American culture. We have this idea that we're a failure. If somehow we can't have their perfect home

He's an economist, and he has a really passionate interest in space. Matt knows that most people have a fascination with space because of like the grand themes exploration. The search for aliens going to the moon so planets AB someday living on Mars with its other inhabitants. Exactly, not Matt. He got excited about space for a different reason is the over the last decade, really almost two decades. Now, we've seen a real flourishing of a commercial space sector. See back in the Cold War decades, the sixties seventies and eighties. When the US was researching the Soviet Union to the moon and developing the space shuttle, Matt says the US space program was meant to provide Americans with so-called public goods. And this is a really important concept in economics public goods are defined by two things first when someone uses a public good it does not. Prevent another person from being able to use it and second when a person uses a public good. It also doesn't take away from how much someone else can use it. So a computer is not a public good. No, not at all. Because I'm using it. And you. One example of public good is clean air. My breathing. It does not stop Stacey. From also, breathing it or military protection. Just because I'm protected by the US military doesn't mean that Stacey is not protected. Matt gives three examples of the public goods that NASA originally was meant to provide the first one national security being able to defend ourselves from space or do something else space was critical importance to national security the second scientific discoveries. So too early. It's hard for the private sector, which is motivated by profit to do basic research in things that won't obviously be sellable. The third public good something you just really can't put a price tag on national pride. Don't usually talk about as much. But I think if you think back to the Cold War that was clearly a big part of it that we wanted to show that our model. Our our society was was the better choice for other societies to take and as the name suggests public goods tend to be publicly provided or. Vied by the government using taxpayer money because there isn't always an obvious motivation for the private sector to provide these public goods, there just isn't an immediate way to profit from them. And yet these goods are valuable to society. So the government uses its unique ability to direct massive amounts of money into providing those goods, it's a centralized economic model. The government agency in this case NASA decides what to do, and it has no competition for how best to do it and using this model. Matt says NASA has really accomplished amazing things over the years, think of the moon missions. And yes, the Mars landings like the one this week and also helping to build the international space station, which is a research laboratory the size of a football field that orbits the earth. And finally, of course, there was the space shuttle program, which was designed to transport people and stuff into space. But Matt says by the early years of this century NASA was struggling to define what its next mission should be NASA hasn't put a man on the moon. Since nineteen seventy two and the space shuttle program, experienced two tragedies, I when the challenger space shuttle exploded in one thousand nine hundred six and second when the Columbia space shuttle disintegrated in two thousand and three and that says it was a lot more expensive per space shuttle flight than people hoped and it got into space a lot less often in two thousand four the administration of President George W Bush announced that it was canceling the space shuttle program and this left NASA with a problem. How is it going to send cargo and cruise into space to do things? Like, for instance, supply, the international space station without space shuttle program NASA came up with two strategies one was a conventional big government centralized program, which would last many years and cost many billions of dollars and then on the margins. There was this idea to spend a little bit of money to encourage a more decentralised, private sector driven space economy. But basically it turned. Out that that conventional program went over budget and behind schedule and eventually got cancelled. But that little experimental program that involved NASA, partnering with the private sector that worked out. This programme was known as cots c o t s and that is an acronym. For commercial orbital transportation services. Nasa issued a report last year saying that the cots program had been this huge success and a model for the public sector to partner with the private sector. And since then NASA has launched no pun intended, is maybe slightly intended other partnership programs that are just like it. Yeah. And the basic way these programs work is that when NASA needs something NASA tells private companies how much it might be willing to pay for it. And then those private companies get to work on figuring out how to provide it for example, last decade when NASA wanted a better way to send supplies to the international space station, and in fact to private companies orbital sciences and SpaceX convinced NASA that they could use their shuttles to resupply. The. Space station. So NASA paid them combined three point five billion dollars for a total of twenty resupply. Flights to the space station. And there are plenty more examples. Like right now NASA is asking private companies to propose technologies they can build and which NASA will pay for that will be useful for future moon missions. We're going back. Yeah. Matt says that NASA is more of a partner with such private companies than a supervisor NASA sets the goal, but private companies compete with each other to come up with the best way to meet that goal and the private companies, then get to keep most of the innovations that they come up with and which they can use to develop new products that they can sell in the private sector or which they can sell to organizations other than NASA. From an economic standpoint this newer, decentralized model has a lot of benefits there's competition between companies which tends to make products better. There's also a profit motive for those companies and incentive for them to discover new technologies and NASA gets access to these new technol-. Gies for a lot less money than it would have cost to develop them. Plus this model is laying the groundwork. Or Stacey laying the space work. Very nice. Very nice, not very nice for the future. When a lot of activity in space will be driven mostly by the private sector. In other words, these partnerships between NASA and the private sector are creating new marketplace for space technologies. We're one did not previously exist and private companies right now are coming up with technologies that will have actual value that could be bought and sold for actual money in this possible future. So what are these new exciting activities going to be and what weird new economic challenges might these activities themselves create Matt tells us about them on tomorrow's episode to tune in.

I warned you about Sheryl Sandberg
"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. I warned you about Cheryl Sandberg by Owen Thomas from business. Welcome back to tech chronicle if you lean in a little you'll find subscribing is the right option. I warned you about Cheryl Sandberg Facebook is drawing scads of negative press. Executives are bailing and questions arising about the company's chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg. My only question is this twenty eighteen or two thousand eight when Mark Zuckerberg hired Sandberg away from Google to be his number two a decade ago. Tech group think consolidated around this storyline. Sandberg would be the adult at the wheel keeping sucker Berg from crashing. Now. It looks like she's the one driving the company into the ditch. The company's bad press seems to be affecting employee. Morale. The one metric that makes Silicon Valley CEO's worry, and the bad press seems linked to areas she oversaw from policy chief Joel Kaplan's. Brow raising appearance at Brett Cavanaugh supreme court nomination hearings to the hiring of dodgy Washington. PR firm to bad mouth. Facebook's critics. It all seemed so familiar to me Sandberg and experienced inside the beltway operator before she joined Google as long lived by Lee atwater line perception is reality. It started before she even joined Facebook officially back in two thousand eight as Sandberg was saying goodbye to colleagues had Google. I was running valley wag Silicon Valley gossip publication, which uncovered all kinds of mischief at her employer. Her reaction, according to sources who spoke to us she promised to shoot the guy who writes valley wag that's one way to manage perceptions. So when you tell me that Sandberg seems more anxious about her own image than the company's fate. I'm not shocked when I read that morale is low. I'm not shocked when departing execs who reportedly clashed with Sandberg tell us how great she is. I'm not. Shocked fibbing about the company next. You'll be telling me there's gambling in a casino. It's all of a pattern with how she behaved when she first got to the company. Here's what would shock me if she actually left in two thousand eight as in twenty eighteen the rumors were when she would hop from Facebook back into the world of politics that door seems permanently closed her carefully maintained reputation stained by Facebook's, many misadventures. She stuck with Facebook and Facebook is probably stuck with her imagine. If Sandberg followed up lean in an option b with a tell all book about Facebook, Laurie. I hope they're tapes, and though Facebook stock has taken a hammering lately, she's made sucker Berg and other Facebook shareholders as well as herself insanely rich, which gets you more or less permanent pass in the world of tech Zuckerberg made clear and a CNN interview Tuesday that there would be no change at the top of Facebook, not even some reshuffling of roles such as him giving up. The job of chairman. He said he hoped to be working with Sandberg for decades here too. I heard echoes of two thousand eight wins sucker. Likewise, defended his embattled Lieutenant while making it perfectly clear who was in charge. No one ever seems to get fired at Facebook. It's bad optics. And perception is reality Owen Thomas. Oh, Thomas said SF chronicle dot com, quote of the week as a parent you want to give your kids so much you want to give them all that. You have all that. You can get you want to give them the world and a better world than the one.

WSJ Tech D.Live: How Should Tech Firms Be Regulated?
"The. With a special edition of tech news briefing. I'm Charlie Turner in New York for the Wall Street Journal technology, firms are facing increased scrutiny over the role. They play in elections, the dissemination of false or biased news and consumer data breaches, but to what extent should tech firms, especially social media companies be regulated at the Wall Street Journal's de live tech conference and Laguna Beach, California industry officials and politicians weighed in with various suggestions democratic u s Representative row Cana of California said any regulation. That's an acted has to be smart as Tim coke putted. We need well-crafted regulation of and it's not regulation for regulation saying let me give you a couple examples of things that I think actually could get bipartisan support, and this of privacy groups, and technology leaders, for example, I think people should have a right to be notified when there's a data breach. It's ridiculous. If you have months and months, go by and people aren't notified you have access. Now to your health records have access to your financial records, probably should have access to know what's happening to your data. You should have some portability which would increase competition if you could take data from one platform to another, but what about possible legislation from states or congress with regard to overseeing the tech industry, AT and T CEO. Randal Stevenson, said don't leave it up to the states. I don't think Washington right now could agree on the freezing temperature a water. But if there were ever an issue that you would think could get bipartisan coalescence, this is one. I mean, we got we had a mess coming at us literally states independently going out and designing their own privacy regulation, you'd people running companies out there trying to think about how you do business newspapers. How do you do business in a world where you have fifty different regulations legislation and rules around privacy? There are a number of states that are now passing their own legislation around. Privacy, and by the way, net neutrality, and what would be a total disaster for the technology and innovation that, you see happening in Silicon Valley and elsewhere is to pick our head up and have fifty different sets rules for companies trying to operate in the United States. So this is where legislation I think is critical pass a body of legislation around customer data protection that shouldn't be that difficult to pull together. Honestly, don't believe Darrell Issa US Republican Representative from California sounded an optimistic note about possible. Regulation from the incoming congress little regulation will occur. We'll be more thoughtful simply because you have highly divided government after this last election, and it tends to mean that the new guys in town in the house are going to be demanding all kinds of things and they're going to walk into. Okay. You'd better demand. Something we were already interested in or you're not gonna get it on the other hand. Steve bomber former Microsoft CEO. And now the owner of the NBA's LA clippers said regulation was preferable to help. The tech industry and not legislation. I happen to think it's a whole lot better to engage with regulators than it is to leave things to legislative action. A lot of discussion in the ecosystem always be we need laws. We need legislation that in every way is probably the worst thing for everybody. Because the regulators can have a real thoughtful discussion about what the technology permits doesn't permit. The legislators never going to do that regulation in the hands of the FTC. Yeah, I get that. Or the DOJ? I get that the differences. Those are people who can put staff on to really understand the details. And those are some thoughts about regulation from the WSJ tech de live conference when we come back. Steve bomber talks about what businesses can learn from sports teams. This is tech news briefing. From the Wall Street Journal, this podcast is brought to you by Harvard Business School executive education is your family office position for growth and success gain best practices in. Family wealth management at the new program building legacy, family, office wealth management. Learn more at H B, S dot ME slash legacy. At the Wall Street Journal de live tech conference. Steve bomber owner of the NBA's, Los Angeles, Clippers and former Microsoft CEO was asked what the similarities and differences were between a company like Microsoft and entertainment franchise like the clippers bomber said. It's all about accountability and winning. Yes, we are in entertainment company, and that's very important thing for me to remember, I tend to think of as a basketball team and yet from a business perspective, we are in entertainment entertainment product. Now, what is the best way to sell tickets? We've done all the statistical analysis. It turns out winning championships is the best way to make your business better. God, it's just like real business. It's all about the product stupid. And frankly, if you win championships got he'll know this. They're still selling a lot of tickets in Chicago years after this guy won a bunch of championships there. So winning the only other thing. Actually that helps you signing superstar having the first pick in the draft. But the best thing is to championships. And so that is what we focus in on. Now, if you think about it, what does that mean, it points to accountability business, you know, people we run around. I we're so we got the quarter getting after the next one. You know, we're marketshare were held accountable. You want accountability? Sports after every game win loose. Sorry. Can't fix it. Next quarter, gone. It's gone. Teamwork. How's your team working your business? How's your team more? Teamwork. Twenty every twenty four seconds. Everybody knows our team work is every twenty four seconds. You can see it. You have to be accountable for it. You think you have customers and shareholders that assess you, yeah, they do, but they're casual casual compared to the millions of fans who are sitting there studying every move who have access to all the perform. Silence data that you do. There's not one piece of information are fans can't see that. We can see that's not true in businesses. So I find a level of count ability frightfully more powerful than I did when I was a CEO that's LA clippers owner Steve bomber on what businesses can learn from sports teams. And that's a special edition of tech news briefing. I'm Charlie Turner in New York for the Wall Street Journal.
