027: Delivering A Vision for (All) The People | Mitch Landrieu | ‘In The Shadow of Statues: A White Southerner Confronts History'
For more show information and resources, and a full review of "In The Shadow of Statues," go to Welcome back to The Executive Book Club podcast! We resume our shows with a book that's equal parts memoir, history, and prescription for finally confronting America's most painful legacy - race. As author Mitch Landrieu asserts, this is a passionate, personal, and urgent book for all Americans to help advance the conversation in our organizations and communities. In this episode, I focus on one key insight from the book. As leaders, we're often called upon to lead in times of crisis and disaster. But can our life and legacy hold more than being the go-to person in an emergency?  What do we do to step away from those day-to-day threats, and how do we heed the call to do something long-lasting and worthwhile? Listen to this episode for answers.
026: New Year, New World And Our New Programming| Maya Mathias
  For more show information and resources, go to Here we are at the beginning of 2017, and about to usher in a brave new and even more uncertain world. The Western hemisphere is swept up in political upsets and waves of unexpected immigration. The Eastern hemisphere is dealing with rumblings from rising nations on the economic and nuclear stage. As your show producer and host, the 'soulful at work and home' premise I launched this podcast with now feels incomplete. There are tectonic shifts happening all around us, and it's time for us to reflect and respond to these shifts for the sake of both world peace and inner peace. In this episode of the Executive Book Club Podcast, I explain our thoughtful shift in programming and book selection, and share a new venture that brings this emerging body of work to you and other peace-seeking souls the world over.  
025: How Tribes Self-destruct | Sebastian Junger | ‘Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging’
For more show information and resources, go to Why do highly-developed and wealthy nations like America seem to be falling apart? What's at the root of the issue, and what can we do to identify the problem and begin finding a solution? Humans are tribalistic by nature. In our drive to create material comfort, have we forsaken our equally important desire to serve and protect our communities? In this episode of the Executive Book Club Podcast, we pull thoughts and ideas from award-winning journalist and film director Sebastian Junger's book Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging.
