This week, Brendon Burchard discusses how to radiate good mojo, Marie Forleo talks about stopping self-sabotage for good, and HP CEO Meg Whitman sits down for an hour-long conversion about integrity and courage in leadership. Plus, Google talks to business leaders at the recent ICON conference in Phoenix, Arizona, and two successful CEOs discuss the five qualities they look for when recruiting members for their team.
How To Have Good Mojo
“How do you develop more positivity? How do you have good energy?” Brendon Burchard starts his latest inspiring video. In it, he discusses how to avoid being a downer or buzzkill and how to instead radiate positive energy or “good mojo” for yourself and everyone around you. Burchard stresses the importance of shining genuine attention, honor, and respect upon others, as well as bringing joy to every moment and being able to let go of the past and live in the present.
Small Business Advice from Industry Experts
In this brief video from the Google Small Business Community, several business leaders at InfusionSoft’s recent ICON conference offer tiny morsels of business wisdom gained over the years. There’s some really good, succinct advice here. “You have to learn how to delegate to your weaknesses and accept the fact that you have weaknesses,” says Nadine Larder of Printer Bees. “It’s all about delegating to your weaknesses and playing to your strengths.”
Stop Self-Sabotage with This One Vital Step
Small business owner Tamara wrote to Marie Forleo asking for advice. “Whenever I see a little progress in my business, I want to hide under a rock,” Tamara wrote. “The moment I’m pushed outside of my comfort zone I want to run back in. What can I do to continue moving forward without running and hiding?” Marie’s advice for combatting self-sabotage is spot-on and illuminating.
HP CEO Meg Whitman on Integrity & Courage in Leadership
Here’s a long one! Meg Whitman discusses leadership lessons and dishes out advice for future leaders during a 55-minute View from the Top talk at Stanford Graduate School of Business. As the current CEO and President of HP and former CEO of eBay, Whitman has plenty of wisdom to share, including the idea of focusing on your “zone of genius,” or what you do really well—which, she says, is probably also what you really love doing. “You have to be known for high integrity,” Whitman advises. “Doing what you say, saying what you mean.”
Engaging Leaders: Michael Lehrman ’90 and Anthony Orso ’90
