"Zero State Thinking"

This book and the new leadership approach described in the book and in this Business Builders Show interview, is driven by some spectacular FAILURES in leadership that have produced the financial crisis, scandals, and other critical lapses that have damaged the economy. The Infinite Leader: Balancing the Demands of Modern Business Leadership by Chris Lewis and Pippa Malmgren offers a fresh new look at what leadership must become in the future.


Chris Lewis founded one of the world's largest marketing firms and advises a variety of CEOs, prime ministers, and senior politicians. Pippa Malmgren was special adviser to President George W Bush and advises CEOs, prime ministers, and the heads of major banks and the world's largest institutional investors.

"The Trouble with Incentive Plans and Other Bribes"

I have learned over the years that conventional thinking is often WRONG. We tend to fall into the groove that if other businesses are doing something and if there are hundreds of consultants and authors talking about it, the ideas that are being discussed must be effective. Contrary thinkers and writers are often a minority and therefore may not reach the audience that needs to hear their message.Gary Heil, a Washington Speakers Bureau exclusive speaker and co-author ofChoose Love Not Fear,joins me in this edition of the Business Builders Show to speak with Alfie Kohn.Kohn's criticisms of competition and rewards have been widely discussed and debated. His books includeNo Contest: The Case Against Competition, Punished by Rewards: The Trouble with Gold Stars, Incentive Plans, A's, Praise, and Other Bribes, and School Beyond Measure & Other Unorthodox Essays About Education..I hope you will step away from conventional thinking for a few minutes and allow yourself to be a student. Someone who listens and possibly changes "the way we have always done things around here."Learn more about Alfie Kohnatalfie kohn.org.
