From New York Times Best-Selling authors to TED presenters, I’ve interviewed movers-and-shakers on the latest trends in leadership and social change.
While tactical, practical advice is always helpful, we still need space to go deeper. I’ve been fortunate to interview thought leaders and influencers on some of the bigger issues affecting how we work. Below are a few interviews.
- Peter Buffett, son of billionaire Warren Buffett and co-chair of the NoVo Foundation: After his article on in the New York Times on how philanthropy can sometimes deepen inequality, I interviewed him about what drove him to write the piece and what those of us working in nonprofits can do differently.
- Susan Cain, author of QUIET: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking and TED presenter: We often assume one has to be outgoing in order to create change. But is this true? In my interview with Susan Cain, we tackle some myths about introversion and talk about introverts who’ve led big social movements.
- Adam Grant, author of Give and Take and Originals: When Adam Grant published his book on the importance of generosity in one’s career, I thought about how this might apply to people who give for a living. In our conversation, we explored this topic and misconceptions around giving.
- Dan Pallotta, author of Uncharitable and TED presenter: While we know no one goes into the nonprofit sector to get rich, are low salaries preventing organizations from making a difference? We touch on this question and others in this interview.
- Glynn Washington, host of NPR’s Snap Judgement: I’m a big fan of unconventional career paths and people using various tools to tackle difficult subjects. Glynn Washington started his career in nonprofit administration and now hosts a popular show about the judgements we make every day. I interviewed him about his journey.
