I know you’ll agree with me after listening to this interview, for someone who’s accomplished so much, John is one of the most down-to-earth and kind individuals you’ll ever meet.

Rob’s purpose can be summed up pretty succinctly - “Rob believes everyone should love business and entrepreneurship”. Why does this simple statement summarize Rob? Well, he believes in creating value for others, and he sees business and entrepreneurship as a direct path to achieving it. Rob’s journey may very well be a perfect example of how many of our journeys look.

His current passion, helping employers create and promote their career opportunities with job ads that don’t suck, Rob and the team at Ongig are turning talent acquisition into the marketing focused activity it’s meant to be.

Rank #15: Cameron Herold - The CEO Whisperer

Podcast cover
Read more

Cameron Herold wasn’t the smartest kid in school. In fact, if he would have allowed his C-average in school determine his fate, he would not have achieved the level of success he has so far. From his earliest days, Cameron was destined to become an entrepreneur. He built and led several businesses — many you may have heard of, including College Pro Painters and 1-800-Got-Junk. He admittedly suffers from ADHD and believes this form of neurodiversity has allowed him to see the whole picture when confronted with everyday business challenges. He’s the author of three high-impact business books, “Double Double,” “Meetings Suck,” and the “Miracle Morning for Entrepreneurs.” Cameron has been called the "best speaker" by Forbes magazine publisher Rich Karlgaard. He’s also spoken in 28 countries around the world.

This episode also happens to the first episode I’ve recorded live in our studio in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was an absolute blast. I decided to take the in-person opportunity and swerve into some lesser-publicly known interest areas about Cameron, including his Burning Man experiences, his fascination with art, and our shared love of music. This is a great conversation with the man known as the CEO Whisperer. Enjoy this one-of-a-kind episode with Cameron Herold.

Rank #16: Luke Larson - President of Axon (TASER International)

Podcast cover
Read more

Luke Larson is the President of Axon, formerly TASER International. There’s no doubt the news media has been sharing what seems like a massive increase in the deteriorating relationship between law enforcement professionals and the communities they are paid to protect and serve. An element of the story that gets very little attention, if any, is the way in which technology is helping our law enforcement professionals do their jobs better, especially given the fact that our world is being disrupted in every way imaginable.

Enter Axon. In my conversation with Luke, he articulated the purpose behind Axon — to make the bullet obsolete. Think about that for a moment — think about a world where law enforcement professionals don’t have to rely on the bullet to keep order and peace. Imagine a world where technology can replace the almighty bullet with something less lethal, and more powerful. In this very special episode, Luke Larson shares:

  • The often untold story of how TASER, now Axon, came to be
  • We touch on Luke’s two tours in Iraq and how that experience has helped him in his role as president of Axon
  • The evolution of a product-manufacturing company to a SaaS and technology company
  • The power of assembling a great team and the importance of clear & concise Values to guide the behaviors
  • The way in which law enforcement is positively impacted by technology

I’m really excited about this episode — and I hope you enjoy hearing Luke Larson's story as much as I did.

Rank #19: Katharine Halpin Podcast Interview

Podcast cover
Read more

I am Brian Mohr, co-founder and Managing Partner of Y Scouts, and today I am interviewing Katharine Halpin, president & CEO of The Halpin Co. Katharine grew up in the “mad men” era of Mississippi in the 1960s, assuming a great amount of leadership responsibility at a very young age through the oversight of her four siblings, and through her working hands-on with clients at her father’s small CPA firm. She carried the knowledge she gained when she "escaped" Mississippi to work with Touche Ross in Dallas, which is now part of Deloitte.

Katharine believes we’re born with innate and unique skillsets, and that leadership, creativity, and innovation are her personal strengths. She’s always been itching to channel them appropriately, and this desire lead her to the significant work with which she’s currently engaged. Centered around the concept of organizational-wide alignment, Katharine wrote and published “Alignment for Success: Bringing Out the Best in Yourself, Your Teams and Your Company” in which she offers advice about the importance of leadership and self-diligence and how these things contribute to successful and positive business results. She presents several helpful ideas about time-management and self-care, and how they both have a profound effect on business and organizational efficiency. Currently, Katharine is overseeing The Halpin Co., where she focuses on dynamic team-building and cementing sustainable practices into businesses.

Today I am interviewing Paul Speigelman, the chief culture officer for Stericycle, a globally traded public company with over 25,000 employees. Prior to that, he was the founder & CEO of BerylHealth, a company that won nine awards as a best place to work. Paul is a New York Times bestselling author of three books about culture and employee engagement, and he speaks often on the topic to convince other businesses about the power of values-driven leadership and the ROI of culture. He also acts as CEO of the Small Giants Community, a membership organization of small-business leaders who believe that as a business you don’t have to be big to have a big impact.

Paul says the relationship between culture and building a great business has become a passion for him, discussing his journey from leaving a career at a law firm to collaborate with his two brothers to create a revolutionary new company. He reflects on the values his parents instilled in him and his brothers, and how it renders them kind, caring people with good core values and a strong potential for leadership.

Paul genuinely believes culture lies in both the grassroots origins and the outreach strategies of the business. He also feels companies flourish by selling who they are, not what they do. This episode is full of endearing lessons about family, teamwork, and genuine leadership that everybody will appreciate. Enjoy this interview with Paul Spiegelman.
