Present Tense Future Perfect

Wenesdays 2pm eastern

Let’s begin with the question of why and how does anyone become entrenched
in the discipline of leadership development?  For myself, it began with a
graduate course on The Presidency and the required reading of a huge tome
by James MacGregor Burns on what he considered to be the most significant
Presidents in the history of the US.  His was a qualitative, historical,
and, at times, psychological account of the leadership vision of those who
changed the institution of the American executive.  One could say, in
today’s terms, he selected transformational leaders.  In fact, Burns is the
academic who coined the phrase, ‘transformational leadership.’

It was fascinating to understand the determination each of these men had to
lead and I wanted to be part of that journey for today’s current and future
leaders.

Present Tense, Future Perfect is a radio show about leadership.  Not any
leadership, but it seeks to enquire into the factors responsible for
today’s turning point in history and if those of us engaged in developing
leaders are doing it right.  How are organizations, societies, and
individuals being impacted by changes in our world?  How do we develop
leaders to respond to them?  What changes can we make today to have an
impact on tomorrow?  This holds for us on a personal level as much as on
organizational and societal levels.

What are the factors which are reshaping our world? I was asked what I saw
as the principal challenges facing organizations today.  I responded,
Globalization and Innovation.  Then I heard Thomas Friedman talking about
his new book, Thank You for Being Late.  He identified the first two and
added, Climate Change, and Technology. I could agree with that.  In fact,
one could well argue that Technology is the principal driver of the first
three.

Developing leaders for a future (and a present) reshaped by these factors
is the overall theme of the program.  However, over 16 weeks we intend to
explore with experts in their fields,

– The effects of Globalization on our economies and labor markets and
how global and international companies are responding

– How Innovation both excites those companies engaged in finding new
ways to satisfy their customers, but also challenges them because it
requires a dual focus on maintaining the current business while planning
for the new

– What does climate change mean for our agricultural requirements and do
rising sea levels mean massive population shifts within and among
Continents?

– If Moore’s Law tells us that advances in digital technologies will
grow exponentially every 2 years, what does it mean for humans’ ability to
maintain control over the machines and devices?

Perhaps organizations today are expecting too much
of their leaders.  With that in mind, we’ve invited guests to talk about
Mindfulness, stress management, the introduction of yoga into the
workplace, and meditation.  If the world is moving at such an incredible
pace and our ability to learn how to catch up with the factors responsible
for change is challenged, how do we anchor ourselves and keep in touch with
our humanity, our souls, our feelings?

Personal development, growth, and fast learning may be our competitive
advantage, but at what cost?

We invite you to listen to Present Tense, Future Perfect, and to
participate.  The hope is to provoke, stimulate, and
inspire.

The A Game Of Business

Lorraine Lane2

Mondays 3pm eastern

Eighteen years ago Lorraine Lane was a happy corporate employee. Recently promoted, she was spearheading a major initiative at the request of the company vice president. But two weeks later she received the dreaded pink slip along with everyone else in her department, due to “budget cuts.”
What followed was two and a half years of taking on assignments as an independent contractor in order to bring income into the household; job-searching; accepting a full-time job and quitting two months later. Basically, a stressful time.
Finally, she decided to build her own business.
Today Lorraine’s business is thriving, built mostly on referrals. She coaches small businesses one-on-one, and with her partner, Jay Michlin, is guiding 12 local business owners in a year-long program, the Business Mastery Academy, to build their businesses on a solid foundation.
Lorraine also facilitates the A-Game Program, a ten-week program based on her book, Business-Building Referrals, on the art and strategy of building a business through referrals.
She brings more than two decades of learning and experience to her individual clients and A-Game participants. Having launched her consulting business in Florida, California, and then Florida once more, she understands fully the issues faced by entrepreneurs. She observes that, “I know first-hand what it takes to build a small business.”
Lorraine’s background includes an undergraduate degree in Education from the University of Vermont and a Masters in Business Administration. She served as an adjunct faculty member for San Jose State University’s Professional Development Center and has served in that capacity for a local university and community college in the Tampa area.
She has served in leadership positions with various Chambers of Commerce and has received many awards for her involvement in the community.

Now Lorraine broadcasts live with The A Game of Business!
