Entrepreneurs Who Think Big and Start Simple: How to Successfully Launch Your New Business with Jim Price
Original Air Date Wednesday, January 22, 2020
In the media, the startup tech world of Silicon Valley has been portrayed as the new ‘beau monde’ and the place where the cool kids go to work.
But, when you peel back the onion of the underlying culture of 20-something bros and the idea that a person ages out at age 35, the glamor fades. And when you compare that with the midwestern community-driven business style, the divide is broad. To hone in on key points from his presentation, Good and Bad Lessons on Company Culture from Silicon Valley, given at the Michigan Ross Positive Business Conference, Jim Price connects with Positive Psychology Podcast Host, Lisa Cypers Kamen. Jim describes how some startups who disregard the status quo can be extraordinarily innovative, how he changes the imbalances in workplace equality, how failures shape us, and why thinking big is the only way to go.
Does something in this conversation resonate with you? Are you in need of a professional speaker who can elevate your tribe & enliven your culture? Lisa Cypers Kamen is an award-winning speaker, author & happiness expert who facilitates life-changing presentations for organizations of any size. The science is clear, happier people thrive in life. If you are ready to inject joy into your organization, find out which program is best for you at Lisa’s Live Events.
