Learning in the 21st Century

Join us this Thursday at 5pm ET for the Future-Proof Workplace show!

We all want to learn how to lead, but leadership of others has always been more about the others than self. Now some would say that Jack Welch was more about self than others, but that is not true. More people learned invaluable insights from the famed Crotonville  – GE’s Leadership Development Center. In fact, more leaders of great Fortune 500 companies were GE Alums. Jack Welch’s lessons and perspectives are timeless. Join us on our next show with Dr. Mario Barrett, who is a full-time business Professor at the Jack Welch Management Institute (JWMI). Not only does he have great insights and stories, but he knows how to take the lessons from the past and make them work in today’s fast-paced world.

Are you Using the Right Skills to Move your Business Forward?

Join us this Thursday at 5pm ET for the Future-Proof Workplace show!

You need business thinking for business success. Additionally, before you go off and acquire a number of new skills, you must ensure that you do not have any of the ‘silent killers of success’.

Our guest, Ram Iyer, Founder & CEO of the Business Thinking Institute has done extensive research and knows what behaviors are getting in the way of your success. He is an entrepreneur who learned the hard way and will be sharing his invaluable experience. Join us for this powerful discussion.

Ram Iyer, Founder & CEO of Business Thinking Institute

The Business Thinking Institute is focused on helping individuals become more successful in business – business owners, entrepreneurs, executives, freelancers, employees, people with MBAs and those without. He has a particular interest in helping techies like himself succeed in business.

Ram has started four companies and has had successes and failures. He found out the hard way that business success requires ‘business thinking’.  And, he found that one can easily fail in business – as an owner or an employee – because of the ‘silent killers of success’ – uncommon common sense. That prompted the founding of the Business Thinking Institute. He has interviewed about 150 business leaders worldwide and hosts the Business Thinking Radio podcast to glean insights and help more people succeed in business.
