Welcome to episode #821 of Six Pixels of Separation.
Here it is: Six Pixels of Separation - Episode #821 - Host: Mitch Joel. Growth is the goal. Helping people develop their potential - enabling them to articulate and become the self they want to be, are capable of being, and that best serves them and others in the short and long term — is what we, as individuals and leaders, strive toward. But how do we grow? This is the question that Whitney Johnson's new book, Smart Growth - How To Grow Your People To Grow Your Company answers. Whitney is CEO of the tech-enabled talent development company Disruption Advisors. Along with being one of the most fascinating people that I know, she is one of the top ten business thinkers in the world as named by Thinkers50, Whitney is an expert at smart growth leadership. Whitney has worked at Fortune 100 companies, and as an award-winning equity analyst on Wall Street. She co-founded the Disruptive Innovation Fund with Harvard Business School’s late Clayton Christensen. She has coached alongside the renowned Marshall Goldsmith, selected by Goldsmith in 2017 as a Top 15 Coach out of a pool of more than 17,000 candidates. Whitney understands how companies work, how investors think, and how the best coaches coach. An award-winning author, Whitney teaches the S Curve of Learning to managers and companies as both a keynote speaker and a frequent lecturer for Harvard Business School’s Corporate Learning. An innovation and disruption theorist, Whitney is also the author of the bestselling, Build an A Team and Disrupt Yourself. She also hosts the weekly, Disrupt Yourself podcast.
