SPOS #473 - Extraordinary Workplaces With Ron Friedman

Welcome to episode #473 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast. Where is the best place to work? It's easy to rattle off some of the hottest companies coming out of Silicon Valley or by just looking at the cover of Fast Company. Don't confuse a great product or service with its work environment. And, we're not just talking about the brands that offer up free food and massages to their employees. In turns out, that there is a ton of research on the subject of what works at work, the problem is that a lot of it is very academic, and has yet to breach the mainstream. Well, social psychologist, Ron Friedman, is here to fix that. His book, The Best Place To Work, looks at the latest science and research around the subject of workplace excellence. He's reviewed thousands of academic studies and turned it all into practical tips any business can use to increase performance and to transform their workplace. Ron is also the principal at ignite80, a consultancy that offers leaders practical, evidence-based techniques for working smarter and empowering others to produce their best work. Enjoy the conversation...

SPOS #472 - How To Steal The Show With Michael Port

Welcome to episode #472 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum PodcastMichael Port is often called into organizations to talk about marketing. Sometimes, he's called in to speak about how to increase sales. Other times, he's the guy that big corporations call in to build better lead generation and networking strategies. With that, he's a former professional actor, and bestselling business author of five books (Book Yourself Solid, Beyond Booked Solid, Book Yourself Solid Illustrated, The Contrarian Effect and The Think Big Manifesto), with his sixth, Steal The Show, about to come out. With Steal The Show, Port is bringing together all of his skills in an effort to help business professionals present themselves better. While I've known Port's work since his first business book, most recently he has become an often-talked-about horse whisperer for very powerful speakers. Now, he's taken this master-class content and turned it into a book (and training platform). Personally, I believe that an individual's professional success is directly correlated to how strong their presentations skills are. Port is a master. Enjoy the conversation...

SPOS #471 - The Internet That Could Be With David Weinberger

Welcome to episode #471 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast. When I think about what the Internet means to me and to business, I often think of David Weinberger. As one of the co-authors of the seminal book, The Cluetrain Manifesto, his thinking, his words and his presentations have shaped my own ideas about what brands can do to connect in our Internet-driven society. I'm still amazed when I go back and read The Cluetrain Manifesto. I'm amazed by how much of it has come to pass. I'm amazed by how much of it is still happening. I wonder about how much more of it will be revealed in the coming years. Since then, Weinberger has stayed true to pushing his thinking around what the Internet is, and it's full potential. His other books, Small Pieces Loosely Joined, Everything Is Miscellaneous, Too Big To Know and his Cluetrain follow up (with Doc Searls), New Clues are all books that I continuously recommend to executives who are trying to grasp the impact of technology on society, culture and business. Most recently, David published an article in The Atlantic titled, The Internet That Was (and Still Could Be). It's an important read. This was an important discussion for us to have. Enjoy the conversation...

SPOS #470 - Henry Mintzberg On Management

Welcome to episode #470 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast. A true legend. You can't use those words lightly when it comes to the business world. Henry Mintzberg is a true legend. He is an internationally renowned academic and author on business and management. He is currently the Cleghorn Professor of Management Studies at the Desautels Faculty of Management of McGill University in Montreal, where he has been teaching since 1968. A published author (more times than most can count), he has been pushing progressive management theory since the early seventies. Most know him for his 1989 book, Mintzberg On Management. Most recently, he published a smaller book titled, Rebalancing Society. Mintzberg also runs a business called, Coaching Ourselves. This organization is running - what looks to be - an incredible event called, Reflections (which takes place September 10th - 11th, 2015 in Montreal). Mintzberg looks back on where management has been, where it's at today and where it's all going. Challenging times, for sure. Enjoy the conversation...

SPOS #469 - The Wrath Of Cannes With Joseph Jaffe

Welcome to episode #469 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast. Joseph Jaffe is widely regarded as one of the top marketing bloggers (Jaffe Juice) and podcasters (both Jaffe Juice in audio and Jaffe Juice TV in video). He is the author of four excellent books (Life After The 30-Second Spot, Join The Conversation, Flip The Funnel and Z.E.R.O.) and his latest business venture is, Evol8tion. A long-time friend (and one of the main inspirations behind the Six Pixels of Separation blog and podcast), we've decided to hold semi-regular conversations, debates and back-and-forths that will dive a little deeper into the digital marketing and advertising landscape. This is our 33rd conversation (or, as I like to affectionately call it, Across The Sound 33.20), and in this episode, we discuss the Cannes Lions advertising awards and how chaotic the marketing world is. Welcome to disruption! Enjoy the conversation...
