Why Corporate Diversity Programs Fail

"Two black men went to a starbucks to wait for a business associate but when they asked to use the bathroom. The manager ordered them to leave they refuse. He called the police and the video went viral amidst an avalanche shows. Bad publicity starbucks closed all stores across the country for four hours of diversity training and so far east does were handed workbooks with prompts. Like what makes me me and you you and understanding our bias from colorblind to color brave dismayed newspapers across the country and arguably that was the goal. Look everyone we're solving our diversity problem. The assumption though was that you could address structural racism with a an earnest. Conversation about our feelings might take. Give me a break to address structural racism. You need to change structures so in the aftermath of floyd's death my sense is that many companies are feeling pressure to actually deliver on their diversity goals. But they haven't a clue what to do and that's because we spent probably close to a billion dollars on diversity but the basic tools of the diversity industrial complex they just don't work a one-shot bias training. It doesn't work for a really simple reason. Doing anything once won't changer. Company's culture and the other basic tools things like an employee resource group or women's initiative. They're fine if the problem is with the women and the people of color. But it's it's not if a company faces challenges surrounding diversity typically it's because subtle not so subtle forms of bias are constantly being transmitted through their basic business systems through hiring through performance evaluations through access to opportunities

Ben Silverman - Ececutive Producer of The Office

"How did you discover the uk version of the office. I was at my friend. Henrietta conrad's house. I was not an agent. I had left being an agent where i had found everything from who wants to be a millionaire to cracker queer as folk and had translated them into america as the packaging agent and i laughed. Backed by barry diller to start my own company called rally and i had just begun reveling in win over to london for a work trip and was staying at my friend. Henrietta conrad's house and we were watching television. And i was literally flipping the channels and i came on to the office. This is episode one or two okay of the uk season one office. Wow and i was watching it. I wondering if it was for comedy or for real than quickly recognized what it was doing single camera no laugh track faux documentary with people who felt real and i kept watching and started laughing. And it's really hard to make me laugh. And i was falling in love with the show in that moment and then i started thinking about it the next day in the morning and i asked henrietta if she knew ricky gervais as and she said no but her friend dan. Mazer did and we organized and had dinner with dan that night. Which are twenty four hours after you after you see it for the first time on television. You're having dinner with someone who could get you to ricky. Yes and additionally. I also wanted to be with dan. Dan was sasha baron. Cohen's partner allergy was on television. Was allie ardor your then no in the uk okay. But i'm with dan mazer yep. Dan is lovely brilliant in his own. Right and i start peppering questions about the office. And he gives me ricky cell phone number and so the next day. I call ricky around eleven o'clock in the morning and introduce myself on the phone and say i'd love to meet you. Are you in town. He goes actually. Yes me in soho at the starbucks this afternoon and i coordinate a meeting and i spent an hour with ricky talking about the office and very quickly we got along because we both love television and he truly was making me laugh even in those moment right over over the coffee at starbucks and so he clearly had chosen the location of the starbucks because he then says to me oh good news. My agent is right around the corner. Let's go meet with them so it was almost like he met me confirmed. I was okay roy. Conversation was interesting and then we walked over and met with dunkin' as his agent. And then duncan and i began a three month process to secure the rights. And it wasn't until dunkin. Help me unlock it. All that i realized. Both the bbc and ricky controlled the rights. I needed ricky and stephen merchant to actually get it done and agitate to get it done otherwise. It was never going to get done. Got it so you you deal with the bbc. And you deal with ricky steven. You have this partnership in place and where do you go into the united states. I immediately start making phone calls and saying. Are you aware of the show the office. Do you know what it is. Do you think it would interest you. And this is probably now a month after are so run. The show has started to gain buzz. It's aired its cycle in the uk. Its initial six episodes and so it has an awareness. Now it's a thing right not a big thing but to anyone in england it in the television industry. You're aware so. I'm i'm back at the states reaching out to people one of the incredible things about hollywood which was a huge advantage for me to do. Well was that people in hollywood are pretty insular and don't like to travel. They think you need a passport to get from burbank to beverly hills. That is travel and so many people at this time in american television had no clue connection about anything beyond la. Right and only one exac at the time knew what i was talking about was a guy named nick grad. Who worked at fx and he knew what the show was and he loved the show. Kevin riley was running fx. At the time. I'd gone to less mooned us he passed. I went to gail berman. She passed immediately. Didn't get it. Hbo said we'll never do a remake. They clearly have altered that thinking that that time they were like. We won't do a format and showtime wasn't doing shows like this right. I didn't go to abc. 'cause i just knew it wasn't abc. Right and i was starting to tease. Nbc with it and kevin than got named the head of nbc. And i bring it up to him. And i say would you wanna do it here and kevin says absolutely little. Did he know he was actually my only buyer that time. He was the only one right who wanted everyone else. All of television everyone else had passed. Now are you in kevin's like let's do it. Like let's let's make it. You know i'll give you a pilot movement and then kevin's boss though. Who is very involved in his life. Jeff zucker didn't really like it that much because it was his single camera. Nola back injury. I got it like it was a hard pill for them to swallow. I was also like they didn't want the game show back in prime time when i brought millionaire. Everyone thought that was cheesy. Daytime like no no. This will change. Tv know you gotta look at it from how to push the genre and pushed the envelope. So that you can expand versus always play for defense right and i was like this is another level and this is potentially transformative of television and with that can come great great

Gathering Data for Zero Trust

"So today's topic is trust or beyond corporal. Max what are these terms. What is zero trust what is beyond corp. So this goes back about twelve years or so when google had two fundamental reimagining of how we do security inside our company and the effort was called beyond corp because it was an effort to move beyond a corporate network. We had to go past the idea that you're either inside the corporate network and thus you can get access to the things and we presume that you are safe or you're outside and have no access at all like when you're working from home or from starbucks and we realized this was a problem for a host of different reasons as we started changing things more recently. Zero trust has become the meam the term and these efforts. And it really just means. I don't implicitly. Trust my network. And i'm a big fan of beyond corp a big fan of zero trust. I do think they both get thrown around broadly and can be very confusing when people often will say them but mean different things so it's great to define our terms here and dig into it a little bit so this is really the move away from enterprises being a crunchy exterior with soft. Julian said yes. No more eminem's more eggs is about abandoning perimeter security. It's about contextual access. It's about testing each and every time. Somebody tries to get to a resource whether that's a website. A database of the vm. And checking do. I actually trust max enough to let him in right now. I think the broad definition is something risk because frankly experience i've encountered people who say trust means you can trust anything and frankly this is false because you obviously need to trust the cia system itself you have to trust identity to trust endpoint data. So let's go have a discussion. About what else must be used announcement to trust it for zero trisystem to build a chain of trust completely and with beyond corp in the way we've decided to implement zero trusted google. You do have to start somewhere so often. That means you're starting with a trust in some of the information you have about your people because you've assembled it yourself having hired them and some information that you have about their computers which are getting from agents a frequent challenge. I get there is. What if the agent gets compromised. Then what do i trust. You don't wanna place all your trust in just one agent or one data source but what we do is gathering information about the devices that employees are using and we have information already about the employees. Right i know max. He's in new york. He works in engineering. And so that gives me a way to design a system that can grant or deny access based on that data. And i trust that data because i know where it came from. I know how i got it. And i have other data sources to corroborate it so that useful to talk about the root of trust in a system like this. What's the real root of trust. What must be trusted. Otherwise the whole thing collapses. I mean you trust it. I'm not an alien and human form feeding information to my overlords sin orbit the moon. But you have to trust some level of egypt based data about your devices right. I'm not in everybody's house right now as we work from home checking on their computer and a half to trust something that i'm getting back where the vets from crumbs verification whether it's from crowd strike or whatever it is i need that device identity and device meta data and i have to trust my. Hr system right hover tracking all these people and the groupings. Tim says he's in product management Really trust that that's true. I mean i could go check but if someone had access to the way we track. Employees had that had been compromised. that's definitely going to derail miser. Trust system for sure this was substantially line identities being accurate and correct so that means probably multi factor indications neither the actual identity should be attached to the right people and peoples would be grouped in the right way to me. This is probably the second big part of what i would call. Route of trust. Trust is identity not just device date exactly and the reason. I don't just trust tim to say who he is is that he's also antiquated with a strong second factor. So that it's very hard for someone to spoof or fish or otherwise impersonate his identity. And that's an important part of the whole chain of trust in the way beyond corp. Zero trust implementations should work. Sounds like we really got three pieces of trust here not zero trust. We've got identity trust. We've got multi factor trust and we've got device station trust so not zero trust. Yeah and i think identity is something i would maybe break out into a couple pieces. Is this actually max or someone pretending to be him. And then there's is max in the right groupings right. Did he get the right entitlements that he inherited by the factor of being in cloud or being an engineer under being developer relations. So yes and. I think it's good to point out the second factor that i am definitely trusting the strong authentication of choice. And without that this whole system falls apart if you have weak or officiapl authentication mechanisms. Please don't even try to zero trust. You have bigger fish to fry and you need to do it right now.

Where Esports is Going with Nick D'Orazio, Inven Global's Director of Corporate Strategy

"So that's a really what type of content I'm trying to push in the future for Esports. I want it to be more of that and less of the same. I love that. I love that Esports is dead. So unique and and you bring up Sports and how Sports is takes on a level of everything that goes around. It is very interested and that's going to be very obvious this weekend with the Superbowl happens in American football a hundred million. People are going to watch that maybe ten million really care about football twenty and the rest are watching for commercials. They're they're watching to eat snack also day. They're watching for the halftime show. Whatever that looks like. That's where Sports exists and it's also where e Sports is definitely going and with more focus on the dispatch. Tags that come around with culture the see the awesome sneakers that are that are made that come out with like like OverWatch characters or overwatch's eyes or e-sports designs. Even that's the kind of stuff. That is so cool to me and I think we're good to see if we are seeing more and more of it and Esports and places like invent culture have really done a great job of highlighting it. Well. Yeah, and you know, it's off the expression of these fandoms, right? It's it's more than just like individual a posturing right like yes in my home right now as I look around I'm surrounded by video game art and video game fan aren't and all my favorite games, right? There's one aspect of it is that I like to be I'm around the things that I enjoy in the art that I like, but the other act and y m e Sports and gaming is certainly headed towards being expressed through the culture of fashion the culture of Art and music and I do think eventually Decor. We're already seeing that with God B&R slash Battle Stations and the aesthetic gaming a movements right? You you see that there is how do you put this? There's an underlying set of core. Hm. This is how I can experience this esport, right? This is how I can experience this game. And if I meet someone who has that shared. Oh, I also like to experience this game in this way. I also like to experience this fandom in this way that builds friendship that builds me like a meaningful. I'm communities and then these communities are the people that go towards your conventions that go to your tournaments, right? It's the same way in which every good football a culture shock and your your city usually has a bar like associated with it or like an after-game bars or like big, you know, a downtown hubs. It's because it's more than just the game and Esports is constantly, you know, keep talking a little bit before we hit on record e Sports is always worried about its Revenue stream, right? Where are we going to get this revenue from and you know, the answer is simple get more people interested in this page. Parts and find more ways to maximize the Esports a user experience. We've already learned from Starbucks that people will be fine with paying $4 more for coffee because it feels like an experience and it feels worth it. And it's nice thing people will be fine paying more for Esports. If we find out how to make it a premium experience how to make it something that lets them experience more things than just, you know, like to throw shade the same talking head style analyst people hurriedly a commenting over, you know, like any sports match and that being it that's the height of how long an experience your love for this game and and the players and this goes for you know, any major use for it. I think at all Rings true. I definitely agree and it was actually something that I don't know if he would have seen this played out in the way. I was hoping to with the Activision Blizzard franchise leagues and the way they went from City to City and now that really never took off because of covid-19. Both leagues have their own. Set core issues. But what I was really excited for was to see how all these different teams and all these different cities started running events and and the different things that popped up around those events. Like you mentioned the the bar that people Gather in. What is the lasting impact of being able to go City to city and start really putting roots of fandom down that was something I was really excited to see we never really got to see it. Well, I'll tell you this now the OverWatch League was a fairly it was an eye-opening experience for me. I thought it was like a crystal ball being a journalist and covering that it allowed me to see into the future of Esports cuz I covered every day of season one. I was there in person at the house at the arena didn't miss imagine. I interviewed so many of the players the fans. I was just there most importantly I was there and what I learned, is that the atmosphere Is very fun when you're waiting in line. It's very fun. When you're shuffling in and you're in the gift store and it's fun when you sit down and the and the team's walk in but after that it becomes like a strictly worse twitch viewing experience for then if you were just your house and you know, it's like I've seen this by faith. Like I I know this this isn't an opinion. This is a fact and it was exhausting showing up there. Even for the super fans and I saw them dwindle slowly and slowly but to your point about the Resurgence were made it all worth it is when the local gamer bar or a college, you know or student union or whatever realized. Hey, let's do an afterlife event thing or let's do a pre-event thing or let's start having these team homesteads, right? Like the problem is because they were ran by small teams. And you know who didn't really there was a lot of concerns about Thursday. Safety and things like that cuz you know, it's a blizzard. They are a big Corporation and they need to have it really spic and span cuz it's like a game for teens and all that. They were way to a closed-off right if more people knew that these Regional fan meet ups and things were happening more people would come but they didn't quite know how to Market it. So, you know, I will say that I am agree covid-19 put a stop on a lot of that right? It's hard to even continue with that but I'll also say that, you know, it's too little too late when it comes to something like the over in the mass of investment. That was you know, it's sad when you think about how many millions of dollars they put into that Arena and the teams and each of those orgs and all those invest, you know, paying what twenty million dollars per lead spot but like players salaries all of that. It's sad to think that at the end of the day the thing that had the most in in my opinion potential and scale and was dead. Most Community good was what resembled grassroot Esports what resembled if they had never done the league at all. And if they just made OverWatch a very friendly, you know public API game in which people would love to build a custom a tailor-made esport that the community accepts but we didn't get that. We instead we got a league and it you know, it didn't

A Conversation With Suki with Punit Singh Soni, CEO

"We are joined by a special guest today from a company that's making some waves and creating some ripple effect while they're doing it. They're ceo puneet joins us today. Caen introduce yourself. Tell us about sukey dot ai and star with your vision and how you gotta go in plus madeline reid. Thank you for having me on the on the show. It's a pleasure to be here talking about this journey. I start by giving you a very quick background on on where i come from. I have all of three years of experience in healthcare so many of the folks who are interested in healthcare listening and probably have way more to teach me tonight. I have to say A my background is google. Most of it is from google. I was Before enterprise software startup it some venture investing Which i strongly recommend you not do if you want to actually build a company and be an operator and I in google in the search team then ended up actually running the mobile apps group for little bit Welcome games Social which you know has a whole different story it probably a good subject for different podcast And then we tried. Motorola was actually astern software. Their software product management. So did that for a little bit built a bunch of very interesting phones. One of them was the. I always on wise form. You could say okay moto x. navigate me to starbucks and this was before alexa. And siri and google assistant other things. Were even a a Even idea and so I kinda saw the evolution of boys and You know the whole voice tack especially when it comes to listening and ambient all of these things from the days when it was very early on And i ended up actually going to. India was the chief product officer flip guard which is india's largest e-commerce company. Came back and thought it would be very interesting to see how they apply some of this voice technology in alternative another spaces beyond dispute consumer. I had this thesis That the largest most interesting influential tech of emory ever is going to be in healthcare. Now i don't know if it's going to be now or five years from now or a decade from now but but i do believe that there is a very interesting company especially with the evolution of machine learning and artificial intelligence. And that's going to happen in in this space. And so that was the genesis in some ways of expirations in healthcare Obviously happy to tell you a lot more about you know how we chose this idea but that was basically how we got into a into the space and ended up putting together sukey. Yes ended up actually running Software product management at motorola and built a bunch of different phones. As part of it one phone that was probably very much well received in the market was moto x. Which was d. I always on phone. You could say things. Like ok moto x. Navigate we do starbucks and it will do that. This was before alexa and siri and the assistant from google even ideas. And so i've kind of seen a ambient passive listening and conversational voice from the days when it was barely technology and not really even a product and so ended up finishing motorola going to india. Where i was running a product for india's largest e-commerce company came back After we sold it to walmart. And i had this idea that there must be a way to use this trend that we're seeing machine learning and boys and why and apply that to healthcare

"Today's better than a dollar tomorrow. You know I think back to like the Walmart episode. There was Sam Walton. What was it forty four million dollars? He grew his business. Or billion billion and lake at what point is it not just enough and I don't think I can't imagine trying to manage that kind of company. No N even as we grow. I mean I'm not saying there's a point where I would say over so big. Let's not go after any more business but like I desperately want to be able to do good for others in this business is the means to do it are why is saving folks time and energy for what matters most now. How do we do that? The services we offer and the different ways we do it the other folks but even then if we had a thousand employees. I wouldn't want that to ever change and then for each of those employees. I want to make sure that we're able to provide meaningful work that allowed them to save time and energy for whatever matters most in their life. No one should be missing their kid's baseball game because you're stuck at the office little tangent before on here and I'm just going to go ahead and say it again. We strongly believe in what we do in that it provides a great efficiency for people in Kyle real great about San. I don't think we can help you or you know. This is what you're really going to have to do. And I know it costs a lot naked unless you do it and I appreciate the honesty wing at our car in the shop recently and they told us it was going to cost this much in the we went to pick it up and they said Hey. It wasn't actually what we thought it was this. And that's five hundred dollars less. I was just dumbfounded. All things mechanic. Louis Oh yeah Oh yeah especially after. They told us you know and so of course thanked him. He saying that's what we're in the business of doing and You know main on anyways him just being on it. It is the only thing off topic. It's honest to what your mission is. This whole book is about you do it. You have to be honest. What that goal is something? I talked about with a our oldest son little bit. You know like was talking about a sin right to send something you did wrong but if you look at what the word actually means you original like Hebrew text of what that means is simply means to Mr Target so sin is missing your target. So if you've got the wrong target then you're definitely doing bad. Yeah so the. It's all they talk about that a little bit. In the seven habits mentioned last time we're going so to go back to our business in an effort to do right by people just recently redeveloped more consulting. Pack again we are. I mean that's one thing about kyle. He's always like how can I make this work for all sized businesses got? Can I help people so he just developed different levels of Quality Assurance Plan? We've got like three different tiers on strength from business. Your but an example. You have to be able to not just adapt and change that so cliche but you have to find ways to truly serve people. We're working with people. I don't care if it's a trillion dollar industry miller business or million dollar business. I'm talking to people run it. You have to help people and so we're trying to do here is get it set up so that it supports our vision of saving folks time in energy for what matters most and just because this is the best example. I can think of because it's what we do is if what matters most to you is advancing your career. Great that's what matters most to you. Let me make some time available in your day so that you can go to that next week thing. You can tackle that next big project and you can keep climbing a ladder as Dave Ramsey says. Just make sure your ladders against the building knows when you get to the top. You'll be disappointed or maybe it was like me like I got tired of this. My Kid's baseball games that that was the those line for me and so that's what we want to do. But if you don't know what that why is and you don't have to be this year of the company for the white matter. Every individual person has something that they're going after and they need to align their life with the target. I think that's important to note because we haven't really talked about that. We've been talking about the why as the in. Everybody has a Y. You know you have to think about what Israel why. Why not necessarily? Why are you at this job or white? Like what is your Wi in life. What is it you really care about? I mean what is it and everyone is different. I'm not going to see what it shouldn't be. But they had gum got to know it in. You've got to have a target and eager to hit the target. I would say if you're having problems in the only met day. Seven Habits of highly effective people will help you. Think you know when we first started talking about why. I'm a mom a wife. I'm a Christian. And he talks about all those different roles digressing so long. You should sit in the office where the someday. I'm barely so to get back. Somebody outside the last thing again reporting at the Canon which is a very nice very love it share and so it's got glass walls around us but some of them are frosted. But Yell See people a bit like Pecan earlier we did an episode on South West Airlines. Oh Yeah Yeah yeah episode. Sixteen and I think you're going to put these and again financing talks about southwest airlines. Because several months ago before we got a little off topic I talked about. These guys are not gods gift right. They are the fiscal blind. So you've got to be really good at expressing your Y and talking about it and use it continues past and hiring the right person like we talked about before Christina Harb's bridgeport financial. She had hire the right people to send those cards. So Herb Kelleher. Who believes the one that started seamless airlines was looking for a successor? And he was going to interview. Somebody named Howard Putnam Putnam goes into the funding. He noticed that Keller her had kicked off his shoes. Keller is the currency right and Putnam is personally interview. He sees the kick off his shoes in the Callahan holes in his socks airlines. This dog for me. Listen with this and he said you know. I'm an every man to kill her. Had to figure out that PUTT. Putt was the right man for the job. So Simonsen it talks about. He got a chance to meet with Putnam because he did get the job and during their meeting which was hours long. Silence of what we go get a cup of coffee from starbucks number replied in this is quoted. I'm not going to starbucks. I'm not paying five dollars for a cup of coffee. And what the heck is a Frappuccino? Anyway the everyman up plenty embody with south. It's an airline for the everyman fancy frills and whatever you just need to get from eighty you open every man airline and so they need every man. Ceo with holes in his socks. Say Do actually Oh. I don't do. I made sure I have this. This may be not the quite podcast material but like recently. I've been rereading first and second Samuel and I was just very confused because two different priests. Their Son's turned out just absolutely terrible horrible and his sons read the ones that are supposed to seize them. I remember thinking like you'd think they'd do a better job with kids so that their kids would be able to succeed. I mean that's no different what we're seeing here. These are the same stories whether you believe scripture not these are the same storage repeated thousands of years apart is it is so hard to get the literal next generation or figurative nece- oh to get the next generation on board the same way you were and it's something that lots of folks have apparently had problems with toxic good comparison. You know you as a parent are raising your children. The way you believe you want them to live in the world and so you have to not only physical embodiment that find a way to infuse that into your children so that they live that life and it it's tough but these skills are the same whether it's work home church that matter salt salt same skills people are people you deal and live with people. Perhaps I should have done the seven habits. I I am excited about reading the seven habits. It took me a long time to get start with why but in Jane were found this reading at the along. My friends were reading. You can set a goal and reading a something that I used to watch. It really loved and then we had one cat and then we had to and then we had three and we have a business and I really got away from quits. We told me. Is You. Sit a goal for yourself a target. I now if it's a good target. I'm actually feisty succeeded. I wasn't able to finish the start with why and I'm ahead of my own. And you know this was the seven habits listed next one in the list and I'm reading. It's it's pretty needy young. It's it's a very different book than start with why. I'm almost halfway through with it. So we might. We might start a mini mini series. Take a break till I yeah to it. It's all good enjoying this. Absolutely it really matters to your quality it does in life in your quality of business it does. It does again as a cumulus bootcamp. We talked about four over half the material we cover is about this type stuff. Is You have to work with people. It does not matter how technical or good of a plane you add is. If you can't get someone else to believe it all right thanks listen..

"A lot of people like starbucks. Yes very well to do company. I really likes that makes you nobody. That's why it myself because I am not a coffee drinker. Therefore I don't care for starbucks and I actually don't care for starbucks also because it's very loud yes. I used to be though Mel chairs in the loud music. Playing people talking. It does not feel very homey it used to be my ideal go to study spot in college but it did say it's not talk about. Yeah so starbucks was started in nineteen seventy two by three guys in one thousand nine hundred eighty two Howard Schultz took over increasing the bigger vision. Okay he really likes the espresso bars of Italy unloaded ring some of that Erica. He wanted to create your third space somewhere between work and home so somewhere. That's cozy that. You can work right so People started buying into what starbuck stood for. Great Cup of coffee can have a Danish. She can stay in. Hang out you know. Those kind of things They serve their coffee and ceramic knives and their danishes were on ceramic plates. So it made it feel homey because you're eating on real dishes now not no more. They won't even give you the little cardboard thing. Keep you from burning your hands unless you ask for it. Well that's really crap. Yeah it is so that was to this was still why. Scholz was in charge that became too expensive maintain and they did away with it. Going for the paper cups and Simonson again in the book said something like Oh nothing says because he likes here. Here's a disposable cup. Now get out of my house. And they're like here's a cup of coffee and a disposable. Thank you WANNA get one to go. Yeah I might give you one but look if we kinda friend. They'll just Hanno cups of coffee a stop off of that. That's not what they were so starbucks. Save Money Trust. Because this is what we've got to you. This isn't what we know. It wasn't what they were built. On so Schultz was still there. He was the physical embodiment of the. Why right and so even though they did away with all that stuff he was still able to lead his employees in the wine they existed the third space he left in two thousand and things started to get worse in eight years. The company grew from one thousand. Thirteen thousand stores. They became over extended and they were facing competition through like McDonalds and places that starts sell coffees. That tastes good. They're serving and to go now. I can drag. It must faster the starbucks and cheaper the starbucks. I'll tell you I like McDonald's coffee but her in laws don't like McDonalds but like two coffee. Hey maybe you can give us your opinion copy. Bring me up bring in the cup and our podcast bringing the Dr Pepper and tell me I'm pretty as my as my less. Funny Fried Excel. So they weren't over extended because of their growth. They were overextended because they forgot their why. Because they're not in the in the business and the only reason I ever liked them again with wasn't because they had the best coffee in the world and it's not GonNa go there just because I want coffee like it was where I went when I just wanted to cities last. Yeah I could just drink. Cup of coffee flipped from a textbook. Talked friends. Like that's what it was. I think about like the show friends the TV show Kirk had a couch. And I just didn't visit starbucks enough to know but I don't like they used to have the areas to be cozy and was upholstered even in me. I would not know. He's meetings at starbucks. And it's just you know. I remember when I was going to school at Lamar University of Beaumont. And you think about the morning anything terribly nice but they had a they called Mirabeau's and it was a little coffee shop inside the university. Oh my Gosh I love going there. They had like all Nice cushy couches you could sit on tables laid out and like I mean it was nice in the tables. Were big enough. You could actually put a textbook. Not like these little tiny circular. Outta town and I just get tired of being at home waiting on the kids cohost like I wanted to. I started reading more this year. That's one of my goals is to read a lot more and I just I asked you know I hold facebook just read and of course there was a lot of outsized jetsons but it was a rainy day and finally. I just was. I just going to go to Barnes and noble because I remember that they had couches and cheers you can sit on the comfy and I wish I don't even drink coffee but starbucks had some the way that I would go get a hot chocolate and sitting inside okay. But it's places that we've had say that's the same thing. It's the metal chairs scrape anyways so Schultz sent a memo to his successor. Jim Donald and said it's quoted. Make the changes necessary to evoke the heritage the tradition and passion that we all have for the true starbucks experience. And that's it. It's an experience because you can get a good cup of coffee for a dollar. At McDonald's starbucks is not going to beat that but they offer something. I will never go hang out at McDonalds. But I'll get a coffee from starbucks. Offer that anymore now competing. No I mean I'll happily pay my you know it's six dollars and two cents for a problem. Yeah just a little bit but I'll happily go pay it if I could just sit and hang out but like you said it's just really noisy and and I'm sure that's partially on purpose because it's not so noisy they just go just going in and whatnot so bad but recently I am. I just got tired of sitting in the office working. And so there's a starbucks like around the corner from our office and so I just walk down there to work a few times and it's a little noisy but you know they've got at least a nice place rob go sit down and work and when I noticed is they have more business of people who have ordered on their mobile phone and go in and pick up and walk out than people to actually come into the store the majority of the at least one location. I can't speak for. The franchisee is one location by our office. More customers come in for their cup of coffee than anywhere else now. I will say that the staff there is really nice and friendly and there are regular people that come in everyday give exact same. Drink the exact same time. They know all mobile name. They have little Chitchat and leave. And so I guess that's a good experience But that's not the experience they were set for those people. That don't have time that don't WanNa come in sit but for the people that need the third spe. Yeah because I need a third drink coffee. Yeah like I got plenty of comfortable places to sit at my house. Yeah but sometimes I want to change just winning and I don't WanNa have to listen to Mel shares scraping loud obnoxious hippy. Music Yeah and I. Don't mind hippy. Music but I don't want I don't even notice it city so if you like hippy music I'm sorry so after seeing the memo I guess Jim Doll didn't do it. Because Schultz returned to takeover donald with a new leader trying to get starbucks back to their. Why the problem was as I mentioned earlier. Schultz was the physical embodiment of the white right as long as he was there. You're all the employees still believed in it and that was fine and so Simon Sinek talks about the CEO's that we've mentioned and he talked about in businesses. None of them are God's gift business they are just the physical environment of their y their businesses. They started as their what to their watch. And so they don't do a good job of communicating that to everyone yoke especially their successor than died when they leave in this long to change that. Like Steve Jobs have come back even bill. Hanna come back so he didn't come back. Ceo But he talks about several people that have come back and working in a comeback work. Again it talks about Simon's talked about. This is why we call them the successors young they supposed to keep maintaining success and improve it for the next generation but they're focusing on the short term dollar is just. It's so tempting ensue. Appealing dollar.

"Eight million people buy a Cup of coffee at Starbucks thanks that's a lot of people thirty eight million people buy a Cup of coffee every single day at Starbucks Starbucks is a big company but that store is a franchise now that's ten percent of the population in the United States Starbucks stores are mostly owned by private people franchise small business owners they operate their store but they they own it under a license agreement from Starbucks corporate and the average Starbucks of franchise operates with a five to seven percent margin now what what that means is after all the operating costs the supplies the electricity the employee salary the taxes and everything else that franchisee that business owner of that local Starbucks is making about five to seven percent of money at the end of the month okay that's their profit they take home every month after all the costs are deducted from all of the sales so to put it another way to show you how little that margin is and that's a normal margin but to show you how little that is the average Starbucks owner the franchisee makes a profit based on only two days worth of operations every month any eight days all the sales go just operating that place only two days of the month is that rich business owner actually making money okay now imagine that today and if it hasn't already gone out it's going to go out to blaze employees today and to mark your employees you get an email from your HR manager maybe your C. E.

"Should never have at Starbucks in there take has done is to ensure that it doesn't happen again it's the way the course is going to happen again unless they change the way they trained they just stumble over themselves last year with the same sort of thing with the rest room I mean come on and that's resulted in that in them having no needle depository boxes in their in their restrooms because remember Starbucks was the act of the last year's incident in Philadelphia it was two black men who were asked to leave because they were like setting up shop and that because this backlash of race so now they're letting anybody being on drugs and all sorts of things to the to the detriment of the employees have to clean the bathrooms that's why you're a crime has healed bottom right when I get to the bottom fast I think I feel the worst for the employees because it feels like they're in a no win situation like they closed down last year to have the sensitivity training where they're supposed to you know be sensitive to all of their customers needs and in this situation someone comes up and maybe it's a pretty silly kind of ludicrous for Christ to say like I need all of the police officers to leave or get out of my line of sight and so it's like what they do in that situation because what if it went the other way it's like they didn't ask the police officers to leave and then the person who said something big stink on social media and suddenly they look bad to this other group of people so it just feels like there's no way for the cost for the the employees to win but you can't you can't ask someone to remove someone who's not doing anything wrong from their line of sight what if somebody who was a right you know what I did you yeah these one of these black people are fighting to get him out of my way I don't like homosexuals get them out of my way back lashing that president yeah not it's not a we know who the person was or what the circumstances were the person who requested that the police be removed I haven't seen anything about that person but it's really been focused more on Starbucks reaction to a the purse right what qualities do you hire to change the culture you get a team of people who have the same basic attitude and you want to change the culture of the company there is a big company you'd think they'd be diverse but I'm not sure that they're finding people that have the quality that they're looking for is that they don't pay enough money they don't pay enough attention to detail they don't grab it's a big so if I you twenty one hundred stores not like their little company I've never had an issue when I the only problem I've ever had in the Starbucks is that the line is too long and sometimes it takes awhile and then I decide okay this isn't worth going in because it's going to take awhile but I've never had an issue with anyone working there or any of the customers either so I don't understand where this is going on using me like it's like the person who asked the police officers to leave it sounds like that person was just being overly sensitive to another customers need and maybe didn't made and the reason I asked about who was this person was this a racially motivated thing was it a black person who went to the Starbucks employee in said the police officers there are making me uncomfortable or or their presence is making me uncomfortable and then that employee then went to the police and said look you're making our customer uncomfortable like the chain of events seems very unclear but it seems like whatever happens the employee according to what to do clearly culture thing and that's the issue for me would seem I don't go to Starbucks and once in awhile it might have gotten a penny sandwich at one point in time but I have over prior because the anyway and everything else and there's over price far as I'm concerned I don't I don't feel I don't feel warm when I go into one of them I don't I just don't like him and so but with you talk about the general lets them even move away from Starbucks and talk about the general malaise when it comes to hiring people do we hire people who are all just like us at the same sort of trouble it seems to me in this day and age exists when you try to have people on your team who are all the same but I don't even think it's that I think that Starbucks is and I wasn't obviously we none of us are Starbucks employees we weren't there for the sensitivity training but what what this tells me is that across the company there they have these wonderful theories of things yeah this is an inclusive place and this is peace love and happiness the employees on the day to day logistical operations of how to run a retail operation and and instead of having let's all hold hands and come by ya how about saying okay when someone approaches you in and gives you this scenario this is what you're supposed to do and I don't think that's what they're doing I think they're trying to just be too on the macro level not really getting into the my new show of how to.

But I'm really excited, first of all the day we're recording this, this is our one year anniversary of when we launched our first podcast. Exciting. No. It's very excited. Yeah. And we're doing well I know it's over a million, listen. Yeah. Well over a million almost according to Mike, it's almost one point one after this episode drops like by the weekend. We'll have one point one. That's so cool exciting. And we're number one in food right now in the morning food, three in the top twenty and sixteen in the top two hundred. That's incredible.

Today's episode is the Starbucks episode. Now even lollies excited. She scratching me, you know, the thing is people will not give up their Starbucks. They will give up anything before, Starbucks people, I know who are say they're so broke they've given up. You know, they don't watch TV. They don't have subscriptions to anything anymore yet. They're in Starbucks, every single day spending money on coffee drinks amazing is the best. I think what we were preparing for this.

My, my former boss with twenty bucks a day. No. That's just I don't know. I mean, I, I love Starbucks and my favorite thing hungry, girl. Here we make a lot of Starbucks drinks, we remake them. But it's fun to try to figure out what is good there in what is better for you and what the best choices are. And what the shockers are I you know, it's something we've been doing since probably two thousand four and it still surprises me. There's still some things that we stumbled upon when we were getting ready for this episode that I think we were surprised to see. Yeah. We have so much, good information..

"It's about not wanting competition to come in. I mean, it's all of that. Depending on who you talk to this is the thing about to your question Felix. I mean, there is it's not really clear. What what you? In fact, I'm interviewed as she lays young guy who lives in Paris, who's one of their propaganda. She does all like the Facebook, you know, videos and things like that when they occupied a Starbucks, for instance. And and they all look really jolly there a lot of them were ordering, you know, they're there for euro per to and then the, but so you ask him he doesn't care about the gas tax. He just thinks we need to get rid of this this sort of the rich and the elite macro represents that. I mean Macron is he is a product of that, you know, the the the the elite schooling in France, which you know, it's not like Harvard. I mean, they're like sixty people year that go to these universities these schools. I'm they're extraordinarily. And they're they're very often from privileged backgrounds. I think it's like eighty percent or seventy percent of the mar-. So so it's there's a there's a sort of rise up against and this is what kind of actually links it with what we've seen in the United the populism of the United States or in the U K or an Italy. In fact, in many respects, what's happened with in Italy with the the league and the five star movement is that government in Italy right now, basically looks like the leg zone in power. It's not it. It's it's on the one hand it wants to kick out immigrants in the other hand, it's very liberal and the basic income basic income. I mean, it's really it's kind of. Really interesting if the gymnasium insofar as they have kind of vision of what they want. It's not dissimilar to the Italian government. So let's ask you that. Like, how's the Italian government doing? Well, you know, there, you know, there's a spat between the French and the Italians quite interesting the French pulled their Basser. I mean, so Salvini and Demeo who the to the co guys running. It'll even though it's contests. The is the prime minister under the deputy prime ministers have both insulted the French on numerous occasions. They for instance. Okay. I love him already. Well, yeah. I think I mean, maybe you guys talked about this where they went after the French franc, the African Frank, right? And said this is you know, keeping Africans poor all any number. So they they are really they are representing this sort of anti elite. I mean, so domestically is it working out for them know, the economy's is actually not doing very well. And and and I. Had the opportunity to interview content. The prime minister when he was in Davos a place. I know you you guys have on tablets. But he, and we said his argument was look you can't right now all this is the previous government previous government. These are you have to wait to see our universal. They don't call universal. But it's like the demon. So the radio whatever it is this idea of basic income all that kicks in in the spring. He saying just wait until the spring. Everything's gonna be great. And he's gonna do universal basic income starting this. How much is it going to any? They don't have. Yes. It's like less than thousand euros a month. I think maybe it's eight hundred and I think they're like four million Italians that may qualify for. Universalism. Yeah. It's not universe universal. It's basically a basic income. That's not quite universal. And and they say once this kicks in everything's gonna be hunky Dory. Of course, by them. We may have it's Italy. So they'll be another government, right? And so in terms of popularity of they retained some of the popularity swat that, you know, put them into power. Yes. Unlike macro, so Macron, you know, won the election.

I've asked myself many many questions about the unintentional consequences of an all volunteer force. Because the American people have just not engaged. It's not that. They don't wanna be. They just don't understand in the last thing is I asked myself, sometimes if we as Americans deserve these people. Because they are beyond heroic regime hounded you and Howard get involved together. Is as you note, Diana now, I spent two and a half years as a Washington Post war correspondent in Iraq. The better part of three and a half travelling back and forth to Afghanistan to write about the troops surge there earlier this year is I was working on a landmark survey of post nine eleven veterans at the Washington Post. I happen to connect up with Howard through mutual friend who works for Howard. And we sat together at a at a restaurant here in DC. And I brought the the raw data from the survey and started to present to Howard and among the many eye-popping findings from the survey one really really got under our skin. And that is that fifty five percent of this generation of Veterans Day in feel disconnect. Acted from civilian life in America in Howard night looked at each other in both. I think thought at the same time. How could this be we send these brave men and women off to fight for us? They've all in tier they serve bravely. Nobly many cases repeated deployments they come back home..

"Starbucks is preparing for an ambitious project in a couple of weeks it'll train employees throughout the company on ways to eliminate discrimination and bias even unconscious bias this is part of the company's response to the inappropriate arrest of two black men at a philadelphia starbucks last month behavioral scientists have unevolved view of what's affective in addressing unconscious bias npr's yuki noguchi reports on some of the challenges david rock founded the neural leadership institute on the idea that leaders can learn a few things from brain science like for example how to better motivate workers and get them to learn more or how to reduce the effects of bias mitigating bias is one of the hottest things in human existence eliminating it would require people to become completely self aware and objective about their own thoughts rock says no one's found a way to do that any strategy that essentially relies on people to try not to be biased is doomed to fail that's the hot of the problem but rocks people are adept at identifying the bias of their peers in his work as a consultant he recommends workplaces develop what he calls if then protocols involving decision making by teams if a person asked for a raise then take it to a committee if a man walks into a store and buys nothing then consult colleagues about an appropriate response you've got to shift the focus from individuals trying not to be biased two teams being able to catch by this decades of research showing that format of strategy actually is the best format for behavior change and habit formation in other words create structures that don't rely on the individual to change heather mcghee agrees starbucks has very aspirational goals for the values at wants to set both within its company and in the world maggie is president of the social advocacy group demos she along with former attorney general eric holder and the nwc p is advising starbucks on its training and.

"Right right there's a part of this and it's early on as a part of this initial training piece that hopefully it'll teach all of us how to have different kinds of conversations with our partners in the store so that we're constantly addressing how we feel about people's differences right and so that's why this conversation can't stop we need to you know higher in a certain room but you're not going to get that right every time no company is nobody will but we're going to try and get closer it and we are actually going to try and train and develop around it and it and it will actually really impact new hires you know in terms of how we get them trained and ready and developed and we're just hoping that we create a sense of self even if you're hired in with the company that makes you think about addressing a customer and what real true customer service looks like and that everybody gets serviced in a starbucks cafe everybody gets service and they get serviced equally and so that's where the work starts i think our brand is low large enough our brand is bold enough for people to see that if if starbucks can improve it so and we had already owned the third place and we're gonna take it to a whole new level that should give our competitors and our partners and our suppliers and everyone else the energy to follow us and come along on this journey with us so.
