Episode Description

Kathryn interviews Author Mark Robert Rank.Americans tend to believe that success comes from hard work, determination and little else. That attitude leads, and has led, to a threadbare social safety net and the undue suffering of millions — so why are we still holding on to the idea? Social welfare professor Mark Robert Rank shows how dramatically our lives are shaped by utter randomness. He unpacks how our aversion to the very idea of luck—our need to believe that personal success or failure comes from internal strength or weakness—leads to policies that weaken the social safety net and favor those who, by chance, were born with a leg up. He’s been featured on NPR, NBC Nightly News, the PBS NewsHour, CBS News, CNN, and many others.Kathryn also interviews Author Jonathan Fanning.In a world where creativity is increasingly recognized as a vital skill, Jonathan Fanning, a renowned leadership and creativity expert has discovered a blueprint of 5 powerful and practical strategies to unleash creativity. He draws on decades of research and experience to provide a comprehensive guide for understanding and nurturing creativity. Through inspiring anecdotes, thought-provoking questions, and powerful – yet simple – strategies, readers will learn how to overcome creative blocks, cultivate a creative mindset, and harness the power of imagination to solve problems and pursue their passions. He has been coaching leaders – from Fortune 500 executives to sole proprietors – for almost 20 years. Jonathan was voted the best speaker at a recent TED conference.
