In this episode of Scaling Up Insights, Bill is joined by panelists Neale Lewis, Stacy Eads, and Judy Guido to discuss the latest advancements in the world of Scaling Up.
The first on the agenda is Keith Ferrazzi’s latest book, Competing in the New World of Work. As we’re coming up towards the third year of “a different way of working in life,” Keith details that the biggest takeaway out of all of this is that being vulnerable is okay. People are breaking down. They’re exhausted and leaders need to be tuned in to accurately address that.
When CEOs notice that their teams are stressed out, Bill offers advice that instead of trying to “problem-solve” their stress, take a step back and get real and vulnerable. Tell the team you’re also stressed in an authentic way! By revealing this insight, people were able to open up and a real dialogue was able to start. If you want people to be open and honest, you have to be open and honest first.
Scaling Up is launching the 20,000 Scale Up Program. It’s a 12-month intensive framework where you work alongside your leadership team. The goal is to help 20,000 startups exponentially grow. Neale is passionate about this because startups are the backbone for many cities, and what better way than to help cities get back on their feet by equipping their people with more job opportunities!
How do you get a job working for Warren Buffet? It starts with getting a bit creative. Did you know he likes corn and tomatoes?

However, once she got in, she had to prove her worth and her expertise.
