026 Invest in Your Emotional Intelligence with Phil Johnson

Season 1, Ep. 26
Join me as I interview Phil Johnson on the EdTech Speaks podcast. Phil has been featured at many events (virtual and physical) and audiences have gotten tremendous value from it. We hope you will, too!Phil is the Founder of the Master of Business Leadership (MBL) executive coaching program. For the past 21 years, he has been helping executives and their organizations achieve remarkable results through Emotional Intelligence. There are MBL alumni in the US, Canada, UK, Europe, Japan, Africa, Australia, the Middle East and Saudi Arabia.He leaves us with a solid piece of advice when he says, "Invest In Yourself. The best advice I can give you and your organization is to take the leap of faith of investing in yourself. The development of your emotional intelligence will ensure your personal, business, and career success. An organization’s profitability and success are a reflection of its level of emotional intelligence. Without an ongoing investment in the development of its emotional intelligence, it will eventually collapse. The biggest challenge organizations face is in changing their people, not technology. Advancing the habits, mindset, and behavior in order to embrace change and technology can take years."Learn more and connect with Phil here:https://linktr.ee/PhilJohnsonhttps://www.linkedin.com/in/philipjpjohnson/ Reach out to learn more: https://calendly.com/mblcoach/chat-with-phil"Getting your MBL is the best investment you could ever make!" https://lnkd.in/ehKyeeEJoanne Moretti, CRO Fictiv / Board Member / Angel Dallas, Texas“Applying the MBL principles has changed my life, professionally and personally.”https://lnkd.in/eNE9k59Kimberly Kaminski, MBL Global Marketing Executive, Amplitude San Francisco, California"Master of Business Leadership program has contributed remarkably to revenue growth and career advancement."Alessandro Fasan, MSEE, MBA, MBL VP Sales CEVA Inc.

025 Technology - Question the Status Quo with Crystal Kadakia

Season 1, Ep. 25
Hot Topic: Digital DisruptionsCrystal Kadakia is a 2-time TEDx speaker, OD consultant, best-selling author of The Millennial Myth and Designing for Modern Learning. She is the co-creator of the Learning Cluster Design Model. Crystal is an organizational change expert taking on challenges in topics like ways of working, inclusion, community building, learning, and productivity for the Digital Age. She uses her strengths in systems thinking, dialogic change, sensemaking, and team process design to help clients like General Mills, Sierra Club, Atlassian, Genentech, and the World Bank to develop their organizations. Crystal has a bachelor's in Chemical Engineering and a master's in Organizational Development.Join me as Crystal shares her viewpoints on how technology alone isn’t enough to evolve modern learning. She emphasized the need for professionals to evolve our mindsets, approaches, and methods so we can make the most of the technology we invest in. Technology today is ready to move learning out of the classroom, but learning design capabilities limit many organizations. As a designer, Crystal explained that once you have the know-how to design out of the classroom, you can finally take advantage of today's technology and make assets accessible, searchable, social, and engaging. Cue Learning Cluster Design!She says, "Don’t be afraid to question the status quo - whether that is in your own field, your leadership, your organizational culture. Questions that aren’t asked, aren’t answered. Persevere - as a friend once told me, we are building sandcastles of transformative change at the edge of the ocean. It’s okay if change doesn’t happen with the first sandcastle. There are many of us working on moving this big ship."Learn more and connect with Crystal here:https://www.linkedin.com/in/crystalkadakia/www.learningclusterdesign.comhttps://www.linkedin.com/company/learning-cluster-design/ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeKBsY0J3i3K2hr7-RxK46g
