NEVER BE CLOSING. A lot of books about selling encourage you to act like someone you’re not. They tell you to say the other person’s name. Copy their body language. Become a salesman. But what if the key to selling is accepting who you are? What if everything weird about you is what will make you successful? Stop thinking of business as transactional. Instead, be generous. Play the long game. And be kind. On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about the soulful art of persuasion with an expert in marketing: Jason Harris. Jason Harris is the CEO of the award-winning creative agency Mekanism and the co-founder of the Creative Alliance. Harris works closely with brands through a blend of soul and science to create provocative campaigns that engage audiences. Iconic brands include Peloton, Ben & Jerry’s, MillerCoors, HBO, and the United Nations. Under his leadership, Mekanism was named to Ad Age’s Agency A-list, twice to their Best Places to Work, and to the Creativity 50. Harris has been named in the Top 10 Most Influential Social Impact Leaders, as well as the 4A’s list of “100 People Who Make Advertising Great.” His methods are studied in cases at Harvard Business School. Jason has put together four principles of persuasion that can help transform you into a master influencer. The bullet points are easy to understand and might even surprise you.

DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY. We all face a lot of pressure from the world. We’re constantly comparing ourselves to others on social media and getting critiques from friends and family. Whether it’s when to have kids, our relationship choices, or a nontraditional career, it’s hard to step outside the box. We might feel judged. We might feel alone. And it might be scary to wander into new territory. So how can we stay true to what WE want? On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk to an inspirational woman changing the world on her terms: Marie Forleo. Marie Forleo is a life coach, motivational speaker, author and host of Marie TV.

DON’T GET DISTRACTED BY SHINY THINGS. It can be exciting to receive connections to the rich and powerful. Fancy dinners, galas, and White House dinners can be tempting. But if these things are keeping you from accomplishing what you set out to do, you’re better off without them. Money comes with strings. If the people pulling those strings don’t align with your message, that money has too great a cost. For this Five Minute Friday, I revisited a conversation I had with Jacob Lief where he shared what has made his non-profit Ubuntu so successful. Jacob Lief is the Founder and CEO of Ubuntu Education Fund, a non-profit organization that takes vulnerable children living in the townships of Port Elizabeth, South Africa from cradle to career. Ubuntu's programs form an integrated system of medical, health, educational and social services, ensuring that a child who is either orphaned or vulnerable can, after several years, succeed. Jacob has been able to stay focused on one area and one community of people by being consistent about what Ubuntu says yes to. It’s not the most glamorous route, but it’s the most impactful. Learn how to stay disciplined and focused on your goal in Episode 849. In This Episode You Will Learn: The thing that has worked the best for Ubuntu (2:00) Why you sometimes have to say “no” to things (2:30) About the struggle to keep people interested in your cause (3:00) If you enjoyed this episode, check out the video, show notes, and more at http://www.lewishowes.com/849 and follow at instagram.com/lewishowes
Seit einigen Jahren erschüttern neonazistische Skandale in der Bundeswehr und Polizei die Öffentlichkeit. Polizisten aus Hessen bezeichneten sich als «NSU 2.0» und schickten perfide Drohbriefe an Rechtsanwältin Başay-Yıldız. Der Bundeswehrsoldat Franco A. plante offensichtlich einen Anschlag mit einer Tarnidentität als Geflüchteter, die «Nordkreuz»-Gruppe plante Ermordungen von politischen Gegner*innen für einen «Tag X». Dies sind nur einige Beispiele aus einer Kette von Vorfällen, die häufig als «Einzelfälle» verharmlost werden. Ziehen Uniformen Rechte einfach an oder sind Polizei und Bundeswehr Ausdruck einer nach rechts rückenden Gesellschaft? Gibt es eine großangelegten extrem rechte Infiltration von Polizei und Bundeswehr? Wie wirken Autoritarismus und soldatische Männlichkeit bei den bewaffneten Organen? In dem Feature von Caro Keller sprechen Eike Sanders, Matthias Quent, Martina Renner und Christoph Kopke. -- Bild: G.

This week we saw the release of the much awaited Yellowhammer documents from the government, documents which outline some of the risks involved with Britain’s sudden departure from the EU. The documents themselves outline that there are risks to the supply of medicines - but do not set out the detail of how those risks have been mitigated, and what doctors and patients should do to plan for the possibility. In this podcast we hear from Andrew Goddard , president of the Royal College of Physicians, and Sandra Gidley, president of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society. We also have a statement from the Royal College of Radiologists.
How do you feel when you realise or sense that someone doesn't like you? If intrusive thoughts about this have popped up more than you would like and even kept you awake at night, you are far from being alone. Natalie shares some of the reasons why humans dislike each other. She also talks about why not being liked bothers us so much, how we are often most bothered when it's someone we don't like or when we don't feel that we've 'earned' their feelings, and she also shares some questions for self-exploration and moving forward.

Über Solidarität in unseren politischen Kämpfen um Bewegungsfreiheit und Klimagerechtigkeit. Podiumsgespräch mit: - Carola Rackete, Aktivistin bei Extension Rebellion und freiwillige Seenotretterin: «Seenotrettung ist wie Krankenwagen fahren: Überlebenswichtig, aber es löst die Probleme nicht. Wir müssen Konsum von Ressourcen verringern und soziale Gerechtigkeit schaffen, damit nicht noch mehr Menschen ihre Lebensgrundlage verlieren.» - Nadja Charaby, Referentin für Klimapolitik, Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung: «Klimakrise ist ein Gerechtigkeitsproblem, weil die Klimakrise alle bestehenden Ungerechtigkeiten weltweit noch weiter verschärft. Wir brauchen deshalb nicht nur Klimaschutz, wir brauchen eine globale, gerechte Verteilung von Macht und Ressourcen.» - Tobias Bachmann, Aktivist bei «Ende Gelände» und Interventionistische Linke: «Wir wollen ein gutes Leben für alle. Das bedeutet, wir müssen uns solidarisieren und unsere Kämpfe verbinden. Deshalb blockieren wir nicht nur Kohlebagger sondern auch andere zerstörerische fossile Infrastrukturen, die Industrie und natürlich auch die AfD und andere rechte Strukturen.» Aufzeichnung vom: Donnerstag, 12. September 2019, im Kesselhaus in der Kulturbrauerei, Knaackstraße 97, 10435 Berlin Eine Kooperationsveranstaltung von «Ende Gelände», Extinction Rebellion Berlin, Interventionistische Linke (iL), Sea-Watch, Seebrücke Berlin und der Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung.

Dr. Larry Arnn joins Hugh Hewitt to talk about Brexit and Party Politics.
You’ve heard it before: over one-third of all food is never eaten. Meanwhile, one in eight families struggles with hunger. So goes the problem of food waste––an environmental, social, and moral blight that affronts our public conscience. But is all food waste created equal? What might actually be wasted in producing food? Who benefits most from campaigns against food waste? And in what ways might our zeroing in on food waste divert our attention from larger questions around how to build more resilient, nourishing, and just food systems? On this episode of Chewing the Fat, a deeper look at views less heard on the issue of food waste. Austin Bryniarski chairs the New Haven Food Policy Council and is rooted in community-based food justice efforts. He has worked for the Harvard Food Law and Policy Clinic, the Resnick Program for Food Law and Policy at UCLA, the Yale Sustainable Food Program and more recently, Urban Resources Initiative. He holds a Masters in Environmental Science from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, having chaired the Yale Food Systems Symposium and taught for the Environmental Protection Clinic during his candidacy. Max Elder is a Research Director in the Food Futures Lab at the Institute for the Future. Max has led work around the world with food companies like Barilla, Hershey's, and Campbell’s, major foundations like the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation; and innovative technology companies like Google and Intel. He sits on the advisory boards of Food Shot Global and Food Systems for the Future. about us: website: sustainablefood.yale.edu/podcast-series facebook: @yalesustainablefoodprogram twitter: @ysfp instagram: @ysfp Chewing the Fat is a podcast from the Yale Sustainable Food Program.

This week the Trump administration has banned the sale of flavoured vapes in the USA. The reason for that is the sudden rash of cases of pulmonary disease, including deaths, linked to vaping. The mechanism by which vaping may be causing damage to the lungs is as yet unclear, and our understanding is hampered by the heterogeneous nature of the compounds involved and the mechanisms of delivery. David Hammond, professor in the school of public health and health systems at the University of Waterloo in Canada, is author of a recent editorial about vaping and joins us to discuss what this means for public health.
