This month, Gary is joined by Dr. Alex DeNoble, Executive Director at the Lavin Entrepreneurship Center of San Diego State University and author of the forthcoming book The Entrepreneur Within. In this book, DeNoble explores the intersections between entrepreneurial behavior and strategy and the culture and politics within existing organizations. He also dissects issues individuals face when trying to move their ideas for new businesses and process proposals through the organization’s hierarchy.
In this month’s conversation, Gary and Alex will discuss the shifting landscape of a post-pandemic world. What is the “new normal,” and how will companies and organizations guide their workers and stakeholders through an indefinite future? To do this, they will touch on:
- How the pandemic has changed work and socializing behaviors
- Emerging “Industry 4.0” technologies, as well as other market shifts
- Social and environmental changes
- And much more!
