The Myths of Creativity | David Burkus | Part 1 | Episode #97

David Burkus is a best-selling author, an award-winning podcaster, and management professor. In 2015, he was named one of the emerging thought leaders most likely to shape the future of business by Thinkers50, the world’s premier ranking of management thinkers.

His latest book, Under New Management, challenges the traditional and widely accepted principles of business management and proves that they are outdated, outmoded, or simply don’t work — and reveals what does. He is also the author of The Myths of Creativity: The Truth About How Innovative Companies and People Generate Great Ideas. David is a regular contributor to Harvard Business Review and Inc magazine. His work has been featured in Fast Company, the Financial Times, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, and CBS This Morning.

David’s innovative views on leadership have earned him invitations to speak to leaders from a variety of organizations. He’s delivered keynote speeches and workshops for Fortune 500 companies such as Microsoft, Google, and Stryker, in-demand conferences such as SXSW and TEDx events, and governmental and military leaders at the U.S. Naval Academy and Naval Postgraduate School. He’s also the host of the award-winning podcast Radio Free Leader.

When he’s not speaking or writing, David is in the classroom. He is associate professor of management at Oral Roberts University, where he teaches courses on organizational behavior, creativity and innovation, and strategic leadership. In 2015, David was named one of the “Top 40 Under 40 Professors Who Inspire.” He serves on the advisory board of Fuse Corps, a nonprofit dedicated to making transformative and replicable change in local government.

David lives in Tulsa with his wife and their two boys.

Why Should You Become Obsessed with Small Problems? | Robyn Benincasa | Part 2 | Episode #95

Robyn Benincasa is a 2014 CNN Hero, a World Champion Adventure Racer, a San Diego Firefighter, a 10x Ironman Triathlete, and the proud owner of two bionic metal hips. Inspired by her good friend and Breast Cancer Survivor, Louise Cooper, Robyn started the 501c3 Project Athena Foundation to help Survivors of medical or traumatic setbacks discover how amazing and strong they are by completing an adventurous dream that they may have never thought possible. As Robyn often says “Its not about the setback, it’s about the comeback!”

Beyond her non-profit, Robyn is also a New York Times Bestselling author for “How Winning Works” and is a 3x winner of the “Top 5 Teambuilding Speaker” Award. In the last 10 years she has shared her message about “Extreme Teamwork”  and “Why Winners Win”  with over 600 companies, from Starbucks, to Boeing, Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft, and Nestle, just to name a few.

Robyn also accepts full blame for inspiring people to do insane things like cross the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim to Rim, run their first triathlon, start their own businesses, or kayak 100 miles from Key Largo to Key West! This is, after all, who she is and what she does: Robyn inspires people to grab life with one hand, grab their teammates with the other, and to create that special magic that allows each of us to become better and stronger together than we would ever be alone.”

The Project Athena Foundation and our upcoming adventures for Survivors and fundraisers — paf was inspired by my hip replacements and my awesome semi broken survivor pals who are now “trail Angels” who train others for their big comeback!
