S3E26 - Leadership in Practice: Sir Ernest Shackleton
In this HCI Podcast episode, HCI Research Associate, Dr. Maureen Andrade shares the leadership example of Sir Ernest Shackleton. How many people would volunteer for a job with low wages, constant danger, and doubtful success? More than you think. Of the 5,000 who applied for a job posting with this description, only 27 were selected. This podcast provides an analysis of the leadership skills of Sir Ernest Shackleton, a British explorer who led expeditions to Antarctica in the early 1900s. While we can analyze his leadership through the perspectives of different leadership theories, what we learn from this case is that Shackleton had a combination of traits, behaviors, and skills. He was able to respond to situations and uplift others. He changed his goal from being the first to cross the subcontinent of Antarctica to saving the lives of each of his crew. And, as he put it, “strength lies in unity.” This episode is based on Dr. Andrade’s book, Organizational Behavior In Practice (Great River Learning).

S2E15 - Developing Technical Experts to become Vulnerable and Successful Organizational Leaders, with Jeff Harmon

Jeff Harmon (https://www.linkedin.com/in/brilliantcoach/) has over 20 years of experience building relationships to equip and mobilize leaders to achieve their most important goals. He has built his life and career based on two principles: how you lead matters and it’s not about me. Eleven years ago, Jeff was diagnosed with a degenerative nerve condition. The reality is that some who are diagnosed with this condition die. He knows more than almost anyone he has ever met the value of every day. Upon diagnosis, Jeff looked at his mortality in the face and then got the news that he is one of the fortunate ones and the disease will likely not take Jeff’s life. He has a much longer lease on life and lives with the regular reminder of impermanence. Jeff uses every precious moment of life to fulfill his mission to set leaders ablaze with the mission God has for their lives and fill the giant leadership void that exists in the world. Loving, supporting and challenging them every step of the way. Jeff’s relationship with God is at the center of his life and this forms the values, principles and perspectives on everything he does. Jeff’s ability to access the strengths and talents of individuals and teams and distill the most complicated, overwhelming concepts into real, actionable steps has enabled him to help leaders to execute plans that produce results while also developing their capacity to lead. Over Jeff’s career, he has either led or facilitated the delivery of over 200,000 hours of strategy in the financial services, information technology, pharmaceutical and non-profit industries. Jeff is the founder and head coach of Brilliance Within Coaching and Consulting. His client list includes GE, Novartis, BDO, PMI, SHRM, Johnson & Johnson, Merck, Fairfax County Government, Alpha Kappa Psi, Morris County Chamber of Commerce and many other companies and associations. Jeff is author of The Anatomy of a Principled Leader, Become a Better Leader 10 Minutes at a Time, the forthcoming book, The Impact-Driven Leader and has been featured in Inc. and Business News Daily magazines. Jeff resides in northern New Jersey, is husband to Sandy, dad to Maddie and Gloria, pastor in the New Apostolic Church and supporter of several organizations who give vulnerable children the opportunity to flourish. Jeff holds a BS degree in finance from the University of Central Florida, a certificate in servant leadership studies from the Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership, is a certified consultant with the Barrett Values Centre, a certified project management professional (PMP) and an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) from the International Coach Federation.

S2E3 - COVID-19 Accelerating the Shift to a New Normal in the Workplace and the Future of Work
Although technological advances are sometimes viewed with fear, specifically that technology will replace jobs, technology has created new types of work that were formerly not even imagined. As we have seen with the response to COVID-19 in terms of rapid technological innovation and adoption to facilitate working from home, technology can enable “global, flexible and independent work” and in particular, in the Global South. However, the impact of technological changes may be uneven displacing some individuals while creating jobs for others. The future of work in the Global South is closely tied to technological innovation, but as these innovations evolve, attention must be paid to policies that protect workers and provide for education and training to help these workers develop the needed skills. The three areas discussed are based on research studies specific to the Global South, examining digital work and its impact in developing countries. In this HCI podcast episode, Dr. Westover talks with Nasir News in Iran about COVID-19, the U.S. healthcare economy, and the future of work.
