Why is it just as important to unlearn and relearn, as it is to learn something in the first place? Because what got you from point A to point B, isn’t going to get you from point B to point C. Bob Tinker is someone who has experienced just that, and in this episode, he joins me to talk about why, as innovators, we all have to change or be changed.

 

Bob Tinker was the founding CEO of MobileIron, an enterprise startup in the mobile security space that in eight years went from “three people and a whiteboard” to over $150M in annual revenue, over 12,000 enterprise customers, nearly 1,000 employees, and an IPO. He is also the author of Change or Be Changed, his latest book in the Survival to Thrival series. Bob shares more about his experience growing MobileIron, the different hurdles he faced at each stage, and how he was constantly surprised by how often things that used to work, stopped working.

 

Through the growth of his company, Bob reveals that his job as CEO changed three times during his time at MobileIron, but not his title. He explains how we can ensure that we evolve with the demands of our job, and what swimlanes have to do with your company and your role as a leader. We also dive into the importance of good onboarding, why culture inertia can hinder innovation, and why it’s so important for culture to be well-defined, but not dogmatic and rigid.

 

If you are ready to:

  • get buy-in from key decision makers on your next big idea

  • be a high-impact, high-value member that ignites change

  • foster a culture of innovation where everyone on your team is bringing innovative ideas that tackle challenges and seize opportunities…

In an industry that’s changing and evolving rapidly, how can entrepreneurs stay ahead of the competition and encourage their team to innovate? It really boils down to a unique culture that reduces hierarchy, fosters independence, and rewards innovation. That’s exactly the kind of company Marcin Kleczynski has built with Malwarebytes.

 

At age 14, Marcin infected his family computer with a virus trying to download video games from the internet and had to turn to an online community to learn skills to fix the problem himself, after traditional tools failed. That incident inspired his interest in programming and eventually led to the founding of Malwarebytes, a company dedicated to helping consumers get rid of hard-to-clean computer viruses, malware and adware, and one of the fastest-growing cybersecurity companies in the market.

 

Cybersecurity is an industry that is changing constantly and even expanding in breadth. Marcin explains how he approaches keeping up with the changes and staying a leader in this space, as well as how he ensures that people on his team are engaged in the process of innovation — by adopting a ‘Shark Tank’ style approach to moving innovation forward. Malwarebytes is also recognized as an extremely innovative company and it is largely because of the unique culture Marcin has cultivated that contributes to innovation, and the bottom line.

Work smarter, not harder — sometimes, it’s easier said than done but in many ways, that’s what champions and athletes do. Yet, what does it even mean to be a champion, and how can you get there? Dana Cavalea breaks it down for us.

 

Dana is the former Director of Strength & Conditioning / Performance Enhancement Coach for the New York Yankees, where he led the team to a World Championship in 2009. He is also the recipient of the 2009 MLB Nolan Ryan Award, given to MLB’s top strength coach as voted by his peers. Dana has not only coached the greats such as Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, he also works with top CEOs, executives, and other high performers.

 

What makes you a champion is everything that happens before you’re holding up that trophy, but that only happens if you’re doing what you’re meant to do. But how do you know if you’re doing the right things and are on the right track? Go with your gut and trust your instinct! Dana explains what it means to work smarter, not harder and why it’s so important not to occupy yourself with busy-work as much as it is to be intentional. He shares some of his strategies to slow down, get to a more balanced place and manage the expectation of winning, at your own pace.

What does your brand stand for in the minds of your audience? Does your branding have clarity in message and purpose so that your customers immediately know what you stand for and what your values are? If not, you need to hear from expert brand strategist and leadership coach Lindsay Pedersen.

 

Author of Forging An Ironclad Brand: A Leader’s Guide, Lindsay developed the Ironclad Method™ while building brands such as Starbucks, Clorox, T-Mobile, and up-and-coming startups. She views ‘brand’ as a blend of science, intuition, behavioral economics, and ancient storytelling, and helps companies develop clarity around their brand, take a stand, and put values into action.

 

Creating an Ironclad brand is all about being differentiated and defendable. Lindsay explains how companies can figure out what the real need is they are filling and what really sets them apart and makes them different, vs. what they like to think it is. She also dives into the importance of leaders taking the helm when it comes to branding instead of leaving it to the marketing team. Small and mid-sized businesses may struggle with Ironclad branding because they’re afraid of turning customers away, but having a crystal-clear brand is powerful not only in attracting the right kind of customers but it also makes it easier for team members to know what the boundaries are. After all, innovation is impossible without clarity.

  • get buy-in from key decision makers on your next big idea

  • be a high-impact, high-value member that ignites change

  • foster a culture of innovation where everyone on your team is bringing innovative ideas that tackle challenges and seize opportunities…

Confidence. Some people seem to have infinite amounts of it, never doubting themselves as they speak up, take risks, and pursue innovation. Yet, others seem to struggle with self-doubt and fear in even the smallest things that they do. Laleh Hancock is an expert on the topic and joins me to shed some light on this fascinating subject and how it influences innovation.

 

Laleh Hancock is the Founder and CEO of Belapemo and has dedicated her career and personal life to inspiring and empowering individuals and organizations who want to exponentially grow their lives and businesses. She has over 25 years of experience building successful consulting firms, service organizations, and product companies, and has been recently featured in the new book Leaders & Legends, alongside Steve Jobs, Suzy Orman, and many others.

 

One of the things Laleh is known for is helping people increase their confidence and that’s one of the factors of innovation — having the confidence to pursue something different. We dive into why we tend to second guess ourselves and gravitate towards trauma-and-drama, how to identify those doubts that are really holding us back, and why confidence is such a key factor in innovation. We also discuss how gratitude helps stop us from judgment and why it is so important to innovators in discovering new possibilities. Laleh also reveals her secret to the subtle art of not caring what other people think — how does she do it? Take their opinion as an “interesting point of view”!
