Leading Effectively Under Pressure
"David, thanks for joining us today. Kwame is an absolute pleasure, my friend. Yeah, it's a pleasure to have you. I've been excited about this since we first spoke. So let's jump into it. How about you tell us a little bit about yourself and what you do? Cool. Well, my name is doctor David arrington. I have over 15 years of leadership development experience. I have 20 plus years actually of leadership experience. I am the COO of errington coaching. I am the author of promotable and most recently I have created leading under pressure, which is a an executive leadership development community. Fantastic. I love it. And so leading under pressure. David white, why do you think it's important for us to understand how to do that? Well, 2020, I could just stop there, right? You know, 2020. But if you notice the leadership landscape has changed fundamentally and indelibly, it's not going back to the way it was. And we have in this one year, these 12 months or so, leaders have been put through a lot of changes. And what I've noticed working with leaders in a number of different industries is that they weren't ready, right? The changes that happened moving from in person to remote handling remote teams still being able to adapt on the fly as other leadership needs changed. There was definitely a gap for a lot of leaders. So right now, we're going to see change continue and it's going to speed up and most leaders again still aren't ready. So what I've done is, I think that this is the time for leaders to learn how to lead under pressure. You can argue that leaders are always leading under pressure. But this is one of those moments that is a standout moment where the pressure is so it's so heavy. The pressure is so great right now that people can actually step back and say yes, I need to step up what I'm doing as a leader.

You have that those same characters able to explore this world that they are now realizing exists outside of their parents in their home and their immediate community.

Here i guess is what we're asking easy easy you're always negotiating that's really it. And so the name for my podcast negotiate. Anything for the reason that i want. People to recognize that they're constantly negotiating. So the definition. I like to use for negotiation. Is anytime you're in a conversation and somebody wants something and so constantly negotiating so whenever. I am doing these trainings and i ask them. When they're negotiating they always start off with family. I then friends and then people at work. And then even if it's procurement people are negotiating deals or real estate folks. Then it gets those type of external negotiations and so the people were going to negotiate with the most are the people who are closest to us and so the number one thing that people need to recognize when it comes to negotiation is that negotiation is everywhere. That's one of the biggest barriers people have is that they have low negotiation awareness. They don't know when they're negotiating and if you don't know you're negotiating then you don't know to use the skills. I love that. Because i know so many people that we talked to in. They're like well. How do i practice my negotiation. I don't get into enough situations like contractors or with business partners or with vendors. That i feel like i can practice enough and i think you just said it perfectly there. You should be practicing every day whether you're talking to your kids whether you are at a restaurant and trying to order something that might not be on the menu anytime you're talking to somebody in either side. What something. It's a great way to put that you're always negotiating to. There's always the opportunity to practice. You have to put yourself in the mindset that is negotiation absolutely and i remember i was listening to one of your episodes before i think it was on the ship. Bigger pockets episode and carol. One of the things you mentioned. Was that the simplest thing you can do to practice you. Negotiate digest practice listening. Not talking in a conversation and it's really hard to do and it's so hard that i created a challenge just for myself maybe i'll make it public something like that. But it's just the listening challenge and i remember. I have a five year old and around the holidays. My son was acting up a bit in school. And so i said you know what i'm to take him to work with me and i will bore him to death and then he will appreciate school more. My mom thought it was a horrible idea and says she started off the conversation. Just criticizing me. And i said oh. This is an opportunity to practice. Okay so for fifteen minutes straight fifteen minutes straight. i didn't say anything other than summarizing. What she said asking. If i understood correctly and then asking what else fifteen minutes straight didn't say anything and i was dying inside. I want to make it abundantly clear. So it's not easy not easy at all to do and so we got to that fifteen minute point and she's like. Are you going to say anything. I said listen. Mom i just wanna listen. I am here to just hear your perspective. What else do you want to say. And then once. I got to the point where she said nope that's it. I said okay. Would you like to hear my perspective. Sure and then. I gave my perspective. She agreed right now. If you think about that conversation if i would have started off if if i would have started off that conversation would not have gone very well right but i went through that painful process of listening for the moment because it was effective in the moment but also thinking long term. This is a practice opportunity. If i can do it in this moment it'll be a lot easier in the future. And then at the end of the conversation. I asked her for feedback. I said how did you feel during this conversation. What could i have done differently. What could've done better. I'm seriously thinking about every single conversation whether it's with my five year old my wife and my mom whoever it is as a practice opportunity because it makes those bigger than more transactional negotiations a lot easier. I want to suggest that. Everybody just hit rewind ninety seconds or one hundred twenty seconds and listen to that again because if you learn nothing else from this episode that's going to change your negotiation ability right there. That's gonna take ten times better. I heard a quote the other day. And unfortunately i can't remember who said it and so who attributed to but something along the lines of most of us when we are listening to somebody else auk were thinking most of the time about what we're going to say next as opposed to what they are saying and when we do that. We don't really get the other person's viewpoint we don't really comprehend what they're saying. We're just thinking about how we're going to argue it and how we're gonna get our point across and so what you said was so important. I do wanna go back to one thing because you had an amazing nugget in there that you kind of glossed over. But i think is super important. I'd love for you to expand on it if you don't mind but you talked about during that fifteen minute conversation with your mom. You were reiterating back to her. Your interpretation of what she was saying and it wasn't just is a time filler. Wasn't just for you to have something to say. What was your reason for. Taking the time and reiterating back to her. What you thought she was saying. It's called the empathy loop and so what you do. Is you summarize what the person says and you do by saying this. it's a really simple format. Correct me if i'm wrong but it sounds like you're saying x. y. z. Is that correct. And then you give them the opportunity to correct you and so this serves two purposes number one. It shows that you're listening and number two. It gets you points for listening. I think about it in terms of a game right where the other side is the referee. It doesn't matter if you're listening if they don't believe that you are in fact listening right and so what i do there is. I say yeah. Am i right there. And then they could either say yes or no and the added psychological bonuses. This people feel like they are in control when they have the opportunity to correct you. Think about it as a child and a parent who's correcting in school teacher versus student. Who's correcting who right. And so i'm saying you correctly. I'm giving you the power in this. Interaction makes them feel safer. Makes them trust you more and makes them feel more in control. Even though i'm not really conceding anything by doing that.

"kwame" Discussed on Coaching for Leaders
"A principal professional-level Kwame hard to do when it's someone senior to you in the organization and they and they're not behaving in a good way when you run into this what if you found that works, Yeah, and again, this is a really tough one. This is a really tough one. And this is an opportunity to use the compassionate curiosity framework, especially if it happens in the moment and you feel caught off guard usually if somebody's trying to mow over you sure there's something emotional that is compelling them to do so I know for me I'm a really chill guy Dave. You know me. I'm nice page you are I'm really competitive and I am really sensitive to time and so I can get really impatient sometimes and I know sometimes I just I can Rush people wage cuz I'm I really just want to move forward and so let's say hypothetically we're dealing with a leader who is impatient. Maybe that's the thing that's causing them to to really try to mow over you because they just wash them a decision and move on. What I would say is this I say listen, it sounds like the challenge we're having is time. It sounds like timing is really important to you, right? Yeah. I I just want to get this done. Yeah dead. And it sounds like the longer we take the the more frustrated it makes you yes. This has been taking way way way too long. Yeah, that makes sense. I know for the sake of the business. We need to move forward quickly the problem. And so Dave this is the transition phase because we don't want to transition with but or however because that erases everything that you say before that makes it more difficult for the person to accept what it is. They you're saying cuz it's interpreted negatively. So I like to transition with the problem is for me in order for me to be effective and contribute to this dialogue. I'm going to need a little bit of time to make a good decision. I can give you the decision now, I just don't think it would be a good decision. And so if you're willing to give me 5 10 15 minutes to to think through this a little bit then I can give you a better decision so we can move forward without having to go back.
Why we must confront hard historical truths
"Not that long ago I received an invitation to spend a few days at the historic. Of James Madison. James Madison of course was the fourth president of the United States, the father of the constitution, the architect of the bill of rights and as a historian I was really excited. To go to this historic site because I understand and appreciate the power of place. Now, Madison called his estate monpellier and mom Pelia is absolutely beautiful is several thousand acres. Rolling Hills farmland forest with absolutely breathtaking views of the blue. Ridge. Mountains but it's a haunting beauty. because. Montpellier was also a slave labor camp. You see James Madison slave more than one hundred people over the course of his lifetime. And he never a single soul, not even upon his death. The centerpiece of Montpellier is Madison's matching. This is where James Madison grew up. This is where he returned to after his presidency. This is where he eventually died and the centerpiece of Madison's mansion is his library this room on the second floor where Madison conceived and conceptualized the bill of rights when I visited for the first time, the director of Education Christian coats. Cool. Why do took me almost immediately to the library. And it was amazing being able to stand in this place where such an important moment in. American history happened. But then after a little while they're Christian actually took me downstairs to the sellers of the. Mansion. Now in the sellers of the mansion, that's where the enslaved African Americans who manage the House spent most of their time. It's also where they were installing a new exhibition on slavery in America. and. While we were there Christian instructed me to do something I thought it was a little bit strange. He told me to take my hand and place it on the brick walls of the seller and slide it along until I felt these impressions or ridges in the face of the brick. Now Look I was going to be staying on site on his former slave plantation for a couple of days. So I wasn't trying to upset any white people. Because when this was over, I want make sure that I could get out. But as I'm actually sliding my hand along the seller war, I couldn't help but think about my daughters and my youngest one in particular who was only about two or three years old at the time because every time she hot out of our car, she would take her hand and slide it along the outside, which is absolutely disgusting and then. And if I couldn't get to her in time, she would take her fingers and pop them in the mouth which drive. Absolutely crazy. So this is what I'm thinking about what I'm supposed to be a historian. But then, but then I actually do feel these impressions in the brick I feel these ridges in the brick and it takes a second to realize what they are, what they are are tiny handprints. Because all the bricks at James Madison's estate were made by the children that he enslaved. And that's when it hit me. That The library in which. James Madison conceived and conceptualizes the bill of rights rests on a foundation of bricks. Made by the children that he enslaved. And? This. Is. Hard. History. It's hard history because it's difficult to imagine the kind of inhumanity. That leads one to enslave children to make bricks. Your comfort and convenience is hard history because it's hard to talk about the violence of slavery. The beatings, the whippings, the kidnappings, the forced family separations is hard history because it's hard to teach white supremacy. Which is the ideology that justified slavery. And so rather than confront hard history. We tend to avoid it. Now sometimes that means just. Stuff up. I can't tell you how many times I've heard people say that states rights was the primary cause of the civil war. That would actually come as a surprise. So the people who fought in the civil war. Sometimes. We try to rationalize hard history. When people visit Montpellier and by people in this instance, white people. When they visit mom appeal your and learn about Madison slaving people. They often ask. But wasn't he a good master? A good master. There is no such thing as a good master. There is only worse and worse her. And sometimes. We just pretend the past didn't happen. I can't tell you how many times I've heard people say it's hard to imagine slavery existing outside of the plantation south no, it ain't. Slavery existed in every American colony slavery existed in my home state of New York for fifty years after the American revolution. Why do we do this? Why do we avoid confronting hard history? Literary performer and Educator Reggie. Gibson had the truth of it when he said that our problem as Americans. Is We actually hate history. What we love Is No style.

Jim Cramer & Rob Maurer Discuss TSLA Stock
"Everybody around here today, we have a special guests on the program Jim Cramer. Needs no introduction Jim thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedule to join us today and talk a little bit about desolate. I think Tesla's the most important stock in the market because it's created a tremendous amount fascination which you know why like it's been hard to find people who understand Tesla like you like you do in other words when I say that mean people understand Tesla, the car tesla the Stock Tesla, the myth test, the reality, which is why it's so exciting to speak with you because frankly anything Tesla I regard as the most exciting thing that's happening in the market and I'm with the guy. I definitely agree. So I'd love to get your thoughts because I think you're you're thinking on Tesla has evolved quite a bit over the last couple of years I know a few years back to your more mixon. You've called it a cult stock gotten into some interaction with Ilan on twitter over the last I think probably eighteen to twelve months. You've you've definitely become a lot more bullish, which was great. Timing has the stock has reflected that as well. So I just love to hear sort of the evolution of thought process on tussle over the last couple of years. Great. Okay. When he came out I thought it was too hot. And I. I said people should sell it now I know that I had subsequent met. You must get a dinner party. And he belittled me he. Space said that if tried question, his analysis of the wall have giant solar field in Colorado we're all other energy's GonNa be provided from five years announcement five years I've seen it yet. He did pronounced me as a hologram basically. Didn't even exist. I thought it was one of the greatest put downs ever except I wish it weren't addressed. Thank. Eh former. Mathematicians Twenty, seven percent. But here's what's happened to me. I looked at his a stock. I didn't look at it. And I think that what happened is basically a a religious could it was a religious? Conversion. I went out to California my daughter had just driven. From Oregon she was living to Los Angeles. And she talked about charging talks about it was about the flatulence button instead you know data been driving. For twelve years. I never cared what a job. It's never been important. She had a beat up two, thousand, eight A. Ford fiesta she'd been driving she wasn't a corporate, but Tesla made her into Cooper's. So then I went out to sea venture mine one executive is so come bally's a company and another former CFO and they had all tesla's. and. My wife who is a complete corpus I mean a nut car person just loves it her favorite everything's ninety, four range over that. She has she said this is it a she drove it and she said this is it. Now we have not bought one yet because she's we're going. To be able to say listen Jim, you should buy because you live in some new. Jersey accuses go around car but when I was driving with the person who was retired was the CFO as you know what my daughter loves it, my wife loves it. It's so cool but they don't have the financials did naked so that I can recommend it to sixty. And he looked at me turn Amigos. GM naked race two billion dollars. Like. Religious, conversion. The conversion was right there because I knew rob. At, the balance sheet was not questioned. Admin. Panel table ever since we caught a lot of points I, continue to recommend it. I should have realized along the way that when Jay Leno told me Jim. Is the greatest car coming around one fifty. I should've just changed my mind but I hadn't been in the car rob other than. My friend, kwame picked me up to a little bit. And when you have a person who's never driven a car saying, this is like the greatest thing ever doesn't think of as a car and then you have the coordinate nut Lisa who says, this is the greatest thing ever and you have a CFO's very rigorous who said look they can raise the money I said, what am I doing?

threw her support behind the former vice president saying quote I believe in joke we need a leader who really does care about the people and who can therefore unify the people and I believe Joe can do that and with us right now was ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts Steve what a difference a week makes it did you anticipate Joe Biden picking up this mode the momentum this quickly no I have not I don't think anybody did I I think what we're what we're seeing though is a fascinating phenomena based on one word and that word is fear it's fear of Donald Trump and fear of Bernie Sanders Joe Biden has not been reborn as some useful charismatics move talking energetic candidates Joe Biden today is still the same Joe Biden that people have a lot of doubts about two weeks ago two months ago two years ago the difference is that Democrats have so desperate so frantic to find somebody who can beat Donald Trump that they decided that day either as a group and individually as voters and as candidates they'll camel Harris being an example of of having to rally around somebody and then choosing between Biden and Sanders the fear of Bernie Sanders is pulling the party too far to the left so there's a lot of energy around the Biden candidacy right now but in my view it's largely negative energy it's driven by fear it's driven by desperation there are not a lot of Democrats even this morning jumping up and down in Saint Joe Biden's gonna be a great candidate a great president but this negative energy is very powerful and that's what's driving this trend do you think it's now his to lose or is it too early to say that definitely has to lose end up and I think it's gonna be very difficult for Bernie Sanders to rebound here the one variable of course the one no wild card is by himself as I say he has not been report he's still the guy who can show astounding lapses of judgment he's still the guy who could make gaffes he's still the guy who can show his age very clearly he's still the guy who can appear fumbling and uncertain and in debates with Bernie Sanders and interviews it's still entirely possible for him to make damaging mistakes I think a lot of Democrats even if they rally around by they're holding their breath and hoping that Biden will get its act together and I've seen some signs a few signs of Byton improving on the stop I think he's shown a little bit more energy I think the campaign line about I'm the candidate of those who have been left behind it counted out is a defective and powerful line really echoes of a bill to written of nineteen ninety two the comeback kid although Biden's hardly a kid he's more the comeback teaser than the comeback kid and also this line of of of appealing to the concepts of dignity and civility and normalcy I think they provide a fairly stark contrast to the president who's in the oval office now but Biden is still Biden it was all of his flaws but at this point he's the Democrats best hope and it's gonna be very difficult for Sanders to capture Steve thanks for your thoughts again this morning ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts it's also worth noting that this morning one of the former

Bat Soup, Anyone? How Viruses Transfer From Animals To Humans - Yahoo News
"Let's get back to the interview. Fresh air's Dave Davies recorded yesterday with science writer. David common about the new Corona Rona virus epidemic which broke out in Wuhan China. Kwame ince's the corona virus is just the latest example of how were increasingly contracting dangerous. Viral infections since from animals in his book spillover published in Twenty twelve kwame attractive viruses spilled over from animals to infect humans with HIV West S. Nile fever anthrax. Bola and another from the corona virus family SARS severe acute respiratory syndrome which also emerged in China China. You know you're right. That as scientists tried to track down the source of the SARS virus back in two thousand three and four. They focused on this practice in southern China of eating and in some cases raising wild animals. Not kind of things that you typically think of as food or or where we don't want to just explain this trend and how it figured you're into this yes There is a vogue. There has been a vogue for eating wildlife wild animals when I was in Southern China researching searching the book only briefly. I got to see some of these markets. Where all form of wild animal were on sale A lot of the trade by the time I got there had gone underground because it was suppressed after the SARS outbreak but then it gradually came back and it had been allowed to continue in you again and proliferate win this new virus began but if you go into a live market and you see cages containing bats stacked upon cages containing porcupines stacked upon cages containing palm civics stacked upon cages containing chickens and hygiene is not great and and the animals are defecating on one. Another it's just a natural mixing bowl situation for viruses. It's very very dangerous situation and and one of the things that it allows. Dave is something that we haven't mentioned. I think so far and that is the occurrence of of amplifying hosts hosts that are not the reservoir host the permanent hiding ground of a new virus but represent intermediates between the reservoir of our host and the human population for instance those horses in Australia. From the point of view of a horse they were ultimate hosts and they were being killed by this virus but from the human point of view they were amplifier hosts the virus got into them it multiplied abundantly it caused them to froth and Chauque and bleed through their nostrils veterinarians and trainers. Were trying to take care of them. They amplified the virus. So that One trainer in one stable form and got very sick from that virus in the case of this new corona virus. One of the questions is was there. An amplifier host in that wet market where these cages are stacked are called wet markets white wire called wet markets. Well assume they're called wet markets because the animals are alive alive rather than butchered and in dead and refrigerated They're also wet. Because there's there's water flowing everywhere. They usually have seafood as well as as wild mammals and birds As I said hygiene isn't great. Animals are being butchered on plywood. Boards blood is flowing down into the gutters in the water and there is just a great Liquidity Mix in these markets at at their worst now when scientists were trying to track down the origin of the SARS virus Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome which was associated with the virus in in the early two thousands. They eventually focused focused on something called the civic cat What is that? That's right the civic cat is not really a cat. It's more accurately called the palm palm civic the civic type of mammal that belongs to the to the family of Mongooses But it's a it's a medium sized animal and and it is both captured from the wild for food and captive bred and raised for food And it was the first big eggs suspect of In the SARS outbreak It was found that some of the people who got sick very early on had eaten a butchered civic and so in the civic head though the the antibody for this this virus right and they and they tested him civics and they found they found evidence of the virus. They found antibodies. Antibodies or fragments of DNA A. R. N. A.. In these civics suggesting that they had been infected with the virus and That didn't prove they were the reservoir host but it made them the number one suspect until a couple of Chinese scientists did further work and they established that in fact virus was not living permanently in the civic population in the wild or in captivity. It was it had a different reservoir host it was living in bats and it had passed presumably market somewhere it had passed from a bat into one or more sits and they became the amplifier host. Right and the the Chinese government I think decreed that all sits in captivity would be slaughtered. Right that's right. Thousands of sits in captivity were butchered an an electric electrocuted and and smothered and drowned In this I panicked blind reaction in China to the SARS outbreak. Now when you were looking at you actually went to China with and spent some time in the field with people who were investigating this right. Tell us tell us about that experience. I I went. I went with a fellow named Alexi. Kamara was working as a researcher for a group. That's called ECO health alliance based in New York A group of disease scientists who study see these emerging viruses these emerging pathogens in animals around the world. They generally have cross training in Virology Veterinary Medicine Ecology combinations nations of skills so Alexi was one of them Alexi and a number of Chinese colleagues and I flew to a city called Gua Lynn In the province of Guangdong southern China and we went out climbing into into caves that caves in the karst mountains the limestone stone mountains and hills outside of the city of Gwynn Looking to trap Various different kinds of small bats insectivores bats not giant fruit bats Small bats at lived in these caves including Horseshoe bats which is a particular group of bats so that Alexi and his colleagues could draw draw blood samples and test those for Looking for the SAR SARS virus that point or or any other virus that suspect unit. Just describe a little bit of what what it felt like to be trapping bats and these caves well. It was a little bit claustrophobic. It's not for everybody. Had Castle Castro. We climbed through. We climbed on our bellies through a very low hole to get into one of these caves. We had we had to squirm down and then and up through this whole to get into the cave and then the cave opened out and Alexi and his Chinese colleagues had essentially pillowcases and butterfly nets. And that's how we caught these bats. The Bat started flying around and they would catch them in butterfly nets and they were wearing gloves and and they would untangle a bat from a butterfly net and then Drop it into one of these cloth bags that were like pillowcases. And in this case as I recall they they would tire tied the knot often then handed to me and I would go over and and hanging on sort of a clothesline. So that the bad dangle and we were doing this I don't know if we were in there for a couple of hours oddly enough. We were not wearing masks of any sort we were not wearing with the called. Personal Protective Equipment has met suits or anything and and described this in the book. I asked Alexi. Why the hell
Introducing WeCrashed the story of the rise and fall of We Work
"Daily. Hey their business wars listeners. I'm David Brown every week on the show. We talk about the greatest rivalries in history manipulation and backstabbing or common as companies. Try to take each other down but what happens when a major company company collapses from the inside out the tech. Darling we work was the poster child for a new economy. We works founders wanted to revolutionize the way people work how they live how they sleep even how they raise their kids. It's charismatic founder. Adam Newman had an intoxicating vision for the company but it never we're matched up with reality from wondering the makers of business wars and dirty John Comes. We crashed a six part series about the rise and fall of we work work. It's a story of hope and Hubris. We crashed peels back. The layers on how Newman's culture personality shaped every square foot of we. You Work and how that same powerful personality destroyed it. You're about to hear a preview of the first episode of we crashed as you're listening. Be Sure to subscribe to. We crashed and other. Great wondering shows on Apple podcasts. Or wherever you're listening right now it was June twenty seventeen and the Barclay Center in Brooklyn was packed nearly every seat of the arena that was filled with thousands of group college graduates and their families. I'm looking at all the parents. I'm looking at balloons. I'm seeing horns people smiling. I think I had a smile on my face. Probably the whole time. While I'm at Francis was graduating second in his class which meant he had one of the best seats in the House that was on stage and it was just like wow. I'll be seated the next to you. Know some distinguished people the year before Senator Chuck Schumer had been the commencement speaker this year though was different because this year the the person giving the speech was also graduated. Just like Quan. Well Cumberland College. Class of twenty seventy soon as he walks onstage tall guy. Long hair slicked back. Look he's pulled out the roll out of his trunk and it's like all right. I gotTa dawn this little thing for this ceremony. But I think it'd be headed his way he'd be a t shirt written some fans. Adam Newman all six feet. Five inches of him had taken fifteen years from his first class to finally get his college degree here he was. We looked at it to see a black mortar boards and clasped his hands together in what looked like a gesture of prayer. It's my honor and privilege to graduate with all of you today with his billowing robe flowing black hair and arms outstretched Adam look more like a preacher than what he actually was the. CEO of a multi cheap billion dollars startup called we were an atom was here to spread the spirit of we who is definitely not a traditional commencement speech. The next revolution is going to be the we river loose and the we revolution it's going to be led by generation and the we generation does not discriminate between age race gender or religion Derek. Throwing their hands up their fist pump in people are standing up and train them on. You could think of somebody being the life of the party. You could think of him so as Kwame and the other students listened. Adam told them his story how he had. I moved to New York from Israel to get a degree college. I spent my first two years in Baru studying a little bit and partying locked but then a close friend. His came from Israel to visit. It looked at me and said is this while you left Israel. Is this why you left your family and your loved ones everyone who care about to go party in New York City. I was inspired by his words and his harsh criticism. I woke up the next morning and said it's time to start my first business adventure. Eventually Adam left Beirut behind his business career took off but he was here today he said because even after he'd become a billionaire all his grandma ever ever wanted was for him to finish college South Dynasty who paid for my full tuition. She really did want to graduate. She really did and she kept asking me every year. When you graduating when are you graduating and I said this you know we've done? I have a family we built us. We're doing well no. When are you graduating? I need to Oh hanging above my bed. It was a good story and Adam was a great storyteller. He commanded a presence on like any other. He definitely took everybody's attention so it was just very different a different kind of message. We are weak and if we worked together we cannot not be stopped we work the business Adam found it was more than just a company to him. Yes he wanted to become the world's first trillionaire there but he also truly believe that his company would fundamentally change not just how people work how they live how they raise children how they communicate with one. Another Adam believed he was on the brink of making history in a way you know he was because Adam Newman was about to preside over the largest largest fastest wipe out of shareholder value by a single company since Enron looking back. Maybe the most telling moment of the Ho- commencement speech was when when he shared a story about his first date with his wife. Rebecca went on the first date with me and within five minutes. Now I say five minutes to be nice but it surely it
