We had some fun together.
What did we talk about?
Artie Isaac chairs eight groups of peers who meet monthly to challenge and encourage each other. The result? Better leaders, making better decisions, for better outcomes.
Artie’s Presentation Materials
Creativity & Personal Mastery (CPM)
Artie is studying with Srikumar Rao — a global teacher of MBAs and other humans — on the topics that lead to greater focus and less stress.
Your Next Car Is Coming
Artie mentioned his optimism in the impending arrival of self-driving electric vehicles. It’s based on this video by Tony Seba on Clean Disruption – Energy & Transportation.
Casey Brown’sFavorite Charity
Through Drop In The Bucket, Casey raises funds to build wells in places where girls are otherwise needed to fetch water all day. Once the wells are flowing, the girls can go to school. Here — in a top TED video! — Casey (a pricing expert) talks about pricing and self-worth. Below that, a button will take you to Drop In The Bucket.
Going Into The Cloud
Artie mentioned Uri Alon’s cell biology laboratory — and how his graduate students feared The Cloud. Here’s the video. (Vistage Chair Joe Faessler said, “Falling into the cloud is not only inevitable, it is ennobling.”) Here is TED talk, Why Truly Innovative Science Demands A Leap Into The Unknown.
