    This on demand audio series is a part of the Executive Girlfriends Group Vignette Series. Chicke Fitzgerald interviews Linda J. Popky. The original live interview was 4/24/15.


    If you're a CEO or a CMO who is tired of wasting money on me-too marketing that doesn't work, you must read this book. With all the new marketing techniques accessible to the masses, it’s becoming harder and harder to stand out from the crowd.

    Award-winning marketing expert Linda J. Popky, the founder and president of Leverage2Market Associates, transforms organizations through powerful marketing performance. She lives and works in Silicon Valley, where she’s been involved with many of the companies who developed and deployed the technologies that have changed the world over the last twenty-five years.

    Robbie Vorhaus- One Less, One More: follow your heart. be happy. change slowly.

    One Less, One More: follow your heart. be happy. change slowly. by Robbie Vorhaus


    This on demand audio series is a part of the Executive Girlfriends Group Vignette Series. Chicke Fitzgerald interviews Robbie Vorhaus. The original live interview was 4/17/15.


    A marriage in trouble, jeopardized health, and financial pressures culminated on vacation when his family asked: “Dad, are you really happy?” Realizing he was in peril of losing everything he held dear, Robbie courageously followed the advice he had given clients for decades: Follow your heart. Choose to be happy. And consciously make everything better than you found it. The result: Vorhaus closed his agency, moved his family to their small Sag Harbor home, started a leadership and crisis consultancy, and began anew.


    Now transformed, healthy, happy, and celebrating a marriage of more than 25 years, Robbie drew on his life’s work and experience to write a column for his local newspaper, The Sag Harbor Express, outlining a step-by-step plan for following your heart and being happy, which, after going viral, became the basis for his next seven years writing, One Less. One More. – Follow Your Heart. Be Happy. Change Slowly.


    Robbie is a frequent media contributor on crisis and reputation management, public opinion and current events, featured often on CNN, CNBC, ABC News, Fox News, and USA Today.

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

    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.

    LaRae Quy- Mental Toughness for Women Leaders: Utilize Your Greatest Strengths

    in Business

    Mental Toughness for Women Leaders: 52 Tips To Recognize and Utilize Your Greatest Strengths by LaRae Quy


    This on demand audio series is a part of the Executive Girlfriends Group Vignette Series. Chicke Fitzgerald interviews LaRae Quy. The original live interview was 3/27/15.


    But mental toughness has little to do with physical strength or aggressive behavior; instead, it is understanding how to control the way your mind thinks. In Mental Toughness for Women Leaders, former FBI undercover and counterintelligence agent LaRae Quy shares how she created a strong mind by overcoming obstacles she encountered while at the FBI Academy, working in a male-dominated environment, and recruiting foreign spies to work for the U.S. Government. As an FBI agent, LaRae believes that while theory is nice, evidence is better when you are serious about looking for ways to achieve goals in life. She relies upon science-based research and real life experiences as she explains how you can clarify your goals, take practical steps to make them happen and connect with your ultimate purpose.
