New Book Leads to New Call for Empathetic Leadership in an Era of Digital Distractions

New Book Leads to New Call for Empathetic Leadership in an Era of Digital Distractions

In case you didn’t know, I have a new book out and it’s a little different than anything I’ve published to date, Lifescale: How to Live a More Creative, Productive and Happy Life. I’ll be completely transparent with you. Some wondered, myself included, if writing a book about digital distractions and how to recenter yourself without disconnecting would be healthy for my keynote speaking and professional research/advisory. Some felt that it would distract from my brand as as a thought leader in digital transformation,…

The End of Traditional Marketing and the Beginning of What’s Next

Congratulations to Carlos Gil on the release of his new book, “The End of Marketing: Humanizing your brand in the age of social media.” Carlos is a long-time friend and I was genuinely appreciative when he asked me to write the foreword for his first book.

As an Author on Innovation and Digital Darwinism, I Realized that I Needed to Upgrade My Work

As an Author on Innovation and Digital Darwinism, I Realized that I Needed to Upgrade My Work

As someone who studies the impact of innovative technologies on markets and societies, I found it ironic to write books on the subject that were strongly rooted in traditional channel formats. I struggled with the paradox of urging people to challenge conventions when I clearly couldn’t follow suit. So, going back to the my first solo book, ENGAGE!, in 2010, and with every book following, I borrowed from iconic Hollywood trailers to promote each title. But the books themselves, were still…
