The Big LEAP from Tina Seelig


(B) Professor Tina Seelig, who teaches creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship at Stanford University, has started LEAP, a new podcast series on “how to launch a career, unpacking the often overlooked and under-taught soft skills critical to success” in an organization. Professor Seelig is well known for writing and speaking about creativity and innovation, and more recently advising young graduates how to find their sweet spots in the business world. I had the pleasure to listen to her in a few occasions.

Those podcasts are based on interviews that she did with employees of tech companies, start-ups founders, and investors. Even if you have already started your career, those podcasts are fun to listen to; they might help you to better think about your present interactions with your co-workers.

Following are the summary of the first three episodes that you can listen to on via Stitcher, iTunes or Spotif:

Episode 1:
The Upside of Endings, March 6, 2019
Konstantine Buhler of Meritech Capital and John Melas-Kyriazi of Spark Capital chat about changing course, dropping out of grad school, and sorting through a billion options.

Episode 2:
Playing the Power Game, March 13, 2019
Kit Rodgers of Rambus and Lauryn Isford of Facebook discuss how to navigate an organization’s social fabric. Hint: Learn when to step up and when to step back.

Episode 3:
The Art of the Interview, March 20, 2019
Joshua Reeves, CEO and co-founder of Gusto, and Tess Hatch, an investor at Bessamer Venture Partners, address that dreaded career hurdle: the job interview.
