    Linda Hill- Collective Genius: The Art and Practice of Leading Innovation

    in Business

    Collective Genius: The Art and Practice of Leading Innovation by Linda Hill


    This on demand audio series is a part of the Executive Girlfriends Group Vignette Series. Chicke Fitzgerald interviews Linda Hill. The original live interview was 4/10/15.


    At the heart of innovation is a paradox: you have to unleash the talents and passions of many people, yet you have to harness them into a work that is actually useful. Management professor Linda Hill offers three keys to overcoming this paradox and building a truly innovative organization. If you want a more innovative organization, you may need to change the way you lead.


    Great leaders of innovation don’t fit the conventional mold of “good” leadership. They’re not visionaries who set direction and inspire others to follow. Instead, they create the context in which others are both willing and able to innovate. As one leader said, “My job is to set the stage, not to perform on it.”


    This is the key insight gleaned by the authors of Collective Genius who, led by Harvard leadership scholar Linda Hill, spent a decade studying leaders of innovative firms in the US, Europe, India, and Asia, including such companies as Pixar, Google, Volkswagen, HCL Technologies, IBM, and the Sungjoo Group.

    The Ghost in the Machine - How Steve Jobs Still Haunts the Computer Industry

    in Technology

    Even though it's been more than 3 years since the death of Apple Computer co-founder Steve Jobs, his presence is still felt in the industry he helped start. Whether you use a PC, a laptop, a tablet or a smartphone, there is some of Steve Jobs inside these devices. If you buy music online, Jobs was responsible for revolutionizing the way that music is bought and sold online. He even had a hand in bringing digital animation to fruition with his acquisition of Pixar. When it comes to revolutionizing the technological world in which we live, you'd be hard pressed to find an area in which Steve did not have an impact. In this episode of  Working the Web to Win, we will look at how different the world would be had he not come along, as well as how his legacy is likely to continue for decades to come.

    The Legal Show No Poaching Allowed?

    in Legal

    Attorney  Sarah Steele and writer Bennet Pomerantz discuss the subjects of the day.
     
    The audience should know that although Ms. Steele is a licensed attorney, she is not offering legal advice in any capacity, is not establishing an attorney/client relationship with anyone listening to the show, and recommends that any listener of the show consult a local attorney for any legal advice they may require.
     
    This show is about us discussing hot topics and how they relate to the law.
     
    Tonight we discuss the practice of poaching (and the avoidance thereof) between employers.  Walt Disney Company, DreamWorks Animation, Sony Pictures Animation, Pixar and Lucasfilm were named as defendants in a class action lawsuit filed in San Jose, Calif., that alleges the companies sought to suppress wages by agreeing not to poach each other's workers, effectively rendering the employees powerless to leave their job in pursuit of employment at any of the other companies. Tune in and listen as the hosts weigh in on employee’s rights versus the rights of the employers.
