PROVIDING WOMEN WITH PRACTICAL, EFFECTIVE TECHNIQUES TO BREAK THROUGH GENDER BIAS IN THE WORKPLACE

Co-Author, Speaker, Advocate and So Much More…Al Harris Chats with Positive Phil. Check out the Book: BREAKING THROUGH BIAS: COMMUNICATION TECHNIQUES FOR WOMEN TO SUCCEED AT WORK.

Al Harris was a founding partner of the Chicago law firm of Ungaretti & Harris where Andie started her legal career and which in 2015 merged into the national law firm of Nixon Peabody LLP. At Ungaretti & Harris, Al served for many years as managing partner and then as a member of its Executive and Compensation Committees. In these roles, he had extensive experience watching and evaluating women as they move up the career ladder. Over the course of his career, Al has grown increasingly concerned about the barriers and biases women face in traditionally male career environments. Because of this concern, Al has mentored and advised women in many career fields. His focus is always on the communication skills they need to advance in their chosen fields, despite the prevalence of negative gender stereotypes. Al co-authored with Andie the 2014 article, “Taking Control: Women, Gender Stereotypes, and Impression Management.” Al and Andie speak together and separately on these important topics.

To succeed in their chosen careers, women don’t need to wait for more female friendly workplaces, and they don’t need to behave more like men. Andie and Al persuasively argue the disparity in women’s and men’s career achievements is principally due to the prevalence of biases against women that flow from traditional gender stereotypes. They present sensible and effective communication techniques to overcome these biases so women can advance in their careers as far and as fast as their talents and hard work will take them.

Chris Kuenne Joins us on the Show…

http://www.builtforgrowth.com/

Bio: Chris Kuenne is a successful business builder, growth capital investor and member of Princeton University’s entrepreneurship faculty. Fascinated by the question of what motivates people to act as they do in a commercial context, he built Rosetta, a digital marketing firm where he and his colleagues translated insights about customer motivation into personalized sales and marketing techniques designed to accelerate growth.

After Rosetta sold to the Publicis Group in 2011, he now teaches these techniques to his students at Princeton and applies them to drive the enterprise value of companies at Rosemark Capital, the private equity firm he founded. The task of building a business from the ground up is enormously challenging, whether in a stand-alone start-up or a new venture inside a larger corporation. There are many elements at play— but when building for growth is the imperative, the most important and often least understood is the personality of the builder or founder. It shapes everything from the team and product to the overall business strategy and it is the one resource that founders can directly control. In BUILT FOR GROWTH: How Builder Personality Shapes Your Business, Your Team, and Your Ability to Win (June 6, 2017), Chris Kuenne and John Danner, decode the interplay between builder personality and new business growth. They demonstrate that who you are shapes how you build.

BUILT FOR GROWTH blends quantitative research findings, personal interviews, and experienced analysis to illustrate how each type handles the five dynamic challenges of building businesses of enduring value: converting ideas into products, galvanizing individual talent for collective impact, transforming buyers to partners, aligning financial and other support and scaling the business. Kuenne and Danner provide tools, stories and practical suggestions to better understand the forces behind Builder Personalities and the role they play in conceiving, leading and scaling new businesses. Using a patented analytic methodology Kuenne and Danner discovered there is no single type of highly successful business builder, but rather four distinct Builder Personalities, each of whom build businesses of significant scale in markedly different ways. – The Driver: Relentless, Commercially Focused, and Highly Confident – The Explorer: Curious, Systems-Centric, and Dispassionate – The Crusader: Audacious, Mission-Inspired, and Compassionate – The Captain: Pragmatic, Team-Enabling, and Direct Entrepreneurs who understand their own Builder Personality— the particular combination of beliefs and preferences that drive their motivation, decision making, and leadership style—can select the right team, early customers and financial sponsors for maximum impact.

Franchising Senior Care Founder & NFL Veteran Tafa Jefferson Played

From Pro Player To Pro Businessman…

As Baby Boomers reach retirement age they are inadvertently creating one of the highest growth industries in the country – the Senior Care market. While many individuals are just realizing the implications of this “Silver Tsunami”, Tafa Jefferson, CEO of Amada Senior Care, has been immersed in the industry for more than 20 years. Amada is announcing a nationwide expansion during the West Coast Franchise Expo, at the Anaheim Convention Center October 12th- 14th from 10:00am to 5:00pm.

Tafa’s mother, a caregiver herself, brought the inspiration for Amada Senior Care to light. As early as 8 years old, Tafa witnessed first hand the joy and satisfaction she gained from looking after seniors, despite the hard work required.

A talented, imposing athlete, at 6’6″ and 300 pounds, Tafa seemed destined for a career in football. In 1997, he joined the NFL as an offensive tackle for the Chicago Bears. A career-ending injury forced Tafa to go in a different direction. Tafa’s mother suggested the senior care market, where Tafa could combine a desire to help others with his passion for business. He invited his college football teammate Chad Fotheringham to join him and Amada Home Care was born, later branded to Amada Senior Care, an agency based in Laguna Woods, CA that provides in-home care and guidance on senior housing options. They have built Amada into one of Orange County’s premier senior service businesses, with hundreds of employees.

“My family instilled the values of hard work, honesty and respect for others,” said Tafa. “Football taught me the importance of dedication, application and teamwork as well as how to analyze situations to determine the best course of action. I am amazed at the crossover between sports and business.”

Chad and Tafa admit the journey has not always been an easy one. “It has taken a lot of hard work, a lot of late nights and a lot of gut wrenching decisions,” said Chad, “but we are proud of what we have accomplished. We are now expanding nationally and already have two franchise partners in Washington and Colorado.”

FROM ROBERT:

Many people say I inspire them through example to be resilient by having overcome crippling scoliosis to become a World Champion and Hall of Fame powerlifter. Others, because at age 59 I just won my 22nd consecutive National Championship. Still others because while I am a Columbia Law School trained attorney who has been a Wall Street lawyer and public company General Counsel, I have given back through humanitarian efforts such as organizing a tsunami relief effort for Sri Lanka.  I am now devoting my efforts to fight the obesity epidemic.  I have done all this wit the philosophy of “why not”, a positive belief that I can do it and if not me, the who?  To learn more, or have me visit your organization as a motivational speaker, please visit my website, www.w8lifterusa.com
