Your Company May Very Well Face Opioid-Related Liabilities, Even If You Don’t Sell or Distribute the Painkillers

Veteran Journalist Dennis Kneale on the Massive Torts Facing American Business

[Listen and Profit Now™]

When Dennis Kneale publishes a scoop, smart business people sit up and pay attention.

Dennis’s blue-chip media credentials include influential positions at Fox Business, CNBC, Forbes, and The Wall Street Journal.

Writing earlier this month for the prestigious Op-Ed page of The Wall Street Journal, Dennis issued a warning that when it comes to product liability, the nationwide Opioid Crisis could very well dwarf the sum total of all cancer claims against Big Tobacco .

And it’s not just the giant Fortune 500 companies whose behinds are on the line. Even small businesses that simply provide health insurance might be libel if their employees get addicted to Opioids – or worse, overdose on them.

Dennis Kneale joins host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart with a clear message for listeners: If you’re in business and you’re not already closely monitoring the Opioid crisis, you need to be.

Are Business Leaders Who Trust Their Instincts Sages or Fools?

Rick Snyder Finds That Intuition Makes for a Wise Business Counselor

[Listen and Profit Now™]

This week’s guest, Rick Snyder, was living and working successfully in Oregon as a coach to international businesses, when just shy of three years ago a persistent, deep, voice inside told him he really ought to get out of the American bubble and move to the South of France. So that’s exactly what he did.

That wasn’t odd for Rick, who teaches global business owners and entrepreneurs to listen closely to the instinctive voice we all have inside of us, and act more frequently on our sixth, intuitive sense.

Rick is the lead coach and founder of the business consulting firm Three Hats, and he’s in the process of writing a book – The Invisible Edge: Six Steps for Harnessing Your Intuition – all about using intuition as a business North Star.

Honing and trusting your intuition is not the stuff they teach in Business School, but as Rick is quick to point out, increasingly some of the most-successful and respected companies in America – including Zappos, Apple, and Google – are tapping into mindfulness, intuition, and similar alternative approaches for strategizing and planning.

Host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart says that his instinct tells him that some listeners will dismiss Rick and his reliance on instinct as nonsense. But Dean notes that Rick’s perspective is fresh and it is compelling.  Moreover, it’s worked well for him and many of his clients. 

So listen to this edition of Monday Morning Radio, and trust your own good sense to decide whether or not following Rick’s advice is right for you.

How to Rise to the Occasion, When the Occasion Calls for Impromptu Remarks

Communications Expert and Author Judith Humphrey Shares Her Strategies

[Listen and Profit Now™]

“All the world’s a stage,” Shakespeare wrote. But what happens when you find yourself on the “stage” – whether it’s a business meeting, a news conference, an elevator full of colleagues, or even a platform such as Twitter – and no one has handed you a script?

 

In her new book, Impromptu: Leading in the Moment, Judith Humphrey teaches business leaders, owners, and entrepreneurs how to prepare to speak spontaneously and win over their audiences. But can she talk the talk? 

 

Host and Reputation Coach Dean Rotbart, a one-time Colorado state high school extemporaneous speakers champ, puts Judith to the test this week, as he probes her ability to ad-lib answers to some of his toughest questions.

Is It Time to Trust Your Instincts, Open Your Eyes, and Leap to a New Career?

Author Mike Lewis Explains How and When to Jump

[Listen and Profit Now™]

In his new book, When to Jump, Mike Lewis profiles 44* men and women who enjoyed successful careers in one field, and then made the leap to something entirely different. 

There is the journalist who enlisted in the marines; the public relations executive who became a Bishop in the Episcopal Church; the commercial banker who became a brewery owner – and Mike Lewis, himself, a rising star at Bain Capital, who at age 24 walked away to pursue his dream of being a professional squash player.

Mike says that jumping is more about the pursuit of your life’s dream career, than necessarily achieving it. As he confesses to host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart, his squash dreams didn’t pan out as he’d hoped, but they did lead him to a new career as founder and CEO of When to Jump, a global community of like-minded individuals who share their stories, attend events, take courses, and pursue a variety of other learning opportunities.

On this week’s Monday Morning Radio, Mike details how and when to “Jump.” 

*The 45th Jumper who appears in Mike’s book is Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, who jumped from government to Google, before landing happily at a startup run by then 23-year-old Mark Zuckerberg. Sheryl, who writes the book’s preface and has been the keynote at Mike’s When to Jump conferences, is Mike’s second cousin.
