Robin Hanson Elephant in The Brain

The Elephant in the Brain: Hidden Motives in Everyday Life with Robin Hanson

This is “the elephant in the brain”. 
Such an introspective taboo makes it hard for us to think clearly about our nature and the explanations for our behaviour. The aim of this book, then, is to confront our hidden motives directly – to track down the darker, unexamined corners of our psyches and blast them with floodlights.

The Creativity Leap with Natalie Nixon

The Heart of Business with Hubert Joly

Our guest today is a learner who courageously took on challenging turnaround roles in industries where he had no prior experience. He used his rigorous French education and elite training as a McKinsey consultant to lead five companies as CEO, culminating in the transformation of Best Buy.

During these years, he went through a personal transformation, from seeking to be the smartest person at the table to becoming a passionate and compassionate leader of people. By the time he became CEO of Best Buy in 2012, he had led turnarounds as head of EDS France, Vivendi’s video game division, Carlson Wagonlit Travel, and Carlson Companies.

Despite his achievements by his early forties he was feeling disillusioned from chasing success. This is what inspired him to take “a step back and spend time looking into his soul to find a better direction for his life.” In his study with Catholic monks and a number of CEOs in France, he realized that work is a noble calling to serve others and an expression of love.

He believes work must be guided by the pursuit of a purpose with people at its center. This conviction has shaped his life and his career. It is a great pleasure to welcome: Senior lecturer at Harvard Business School, former chairman and CEO of Best Buy, and author of, “The Heart of Business – Leadership Principles for the Next Era of Capitalism”, Hubert Joly

Enron with Bethany McLean

The Smartest Guys in the Room: The Amazing Rise and Scandalous Fall of Enron with Bethany McLean

In retrospect, Enron did not conceal their dubious transactions from the investing public, but Enron’s brass didn’t go out of their way to point them out, but for anyone willing to wade through the company’s financial documents, the numbers were clear.

We are joined today by a brilliant journalist who did that work, who asked the questions others did not, and whose work would expose one of the biggest scams of all time.

We welcome the author of “The Smartest Guys in the Room: The Amazing Rise and Scandalous Fall of Enron”, Bethany McLean
