Leadership Strengths and Shortcomings in the Balkans: Episode #79 with Jakob Modéer
In this episode with Jakob Modéer, Regional Manager of the Swiss Entrepreneurship Program: ✔️ Opportunities and challenges in the Balkan region from the Western perspective, ✔️ The role of culture in the country’s economy, ✔️ Why an economic system would need plurality, ✔️ Using the entrepreneurship as a vessel to massively help, ✔️ How to practically support less developed countries, and more! Swedish by origin, American/British by education, and Balkanite by marriage and life! 30+years of living, working, failing, surviving, and succeeding in southeast Europe. Factory-owner, exporter, job creator, motivator, storyteller and now, startup ecosystem supporter with the Swiss Entrepreneurship Program. Being born and raised in Sweden, a country that scores in the top 10 of any global development index, made for a wonderful and worry-free childhood. As a teenager, with restlessness with life in a society of collective conformity and completion, Jakob applied to study for a high school year in the US, which was followed by BA studies at Lewis & Clark College out in Oregon. At the American university, Jakob was struck by the openness of the discourse, the closeness of the professors and their push for well-argued cases to improve the status quo, and the equal rejection of unsupported complaining. Graduation coincided with the fall of the Berlin Wall and the rush for societal change in East Europe and the USSR. Jakob got a job in Moscow, constructing the first golf course in the USSR. The encounter with the negative effects of totalitarianism and the planned economy was eye-opening. Finding a way to operate and get a job done in a completely different culture was an incredible challenge, a learning journey that Jakob now treasures very much. Today, 30+ years later, he recognizes that those months in the Soviet capital were his watershed moment, he knew at that moment, that this is where he wanted to be – on the front lines of the re-introduction of individual freedoms, free market, and free-thinking. During the last three decades in the lands of southeast Europe aka The Balkans, Jakob has started and failed as a factory owner, succeeded as an exporter of multiple products, worked as a consultant on job creation programs, and advised national and local governments on the art of creating jobs (often in deprived geographical areas) and most recently managing a program which puts entrepreneurs first, as the primary change agents, in a transitional society.

Joe’s grandfather was the founder of J W Foster & Sons (Athletic Shoes) Ltd and the inventor of the Spiked Running Shoe and the Trainer (Sneaker). Joe and his late brother Jeff were born into the J W Foster & family business, but on their return after 2 years away from home on National Service, they asked questions. The year was 1955 and the brothers saw a business still rooted in the 1930s. Their Father and Uncle were now operating the business and very much like another Sports Shoe company, spent more time feuding than collaborating. The result was that in 1958 Joe and Jeff left the Foster business to set up a new Sports Shoe company. The brothers founded Mercury Sports Footwear, which after 18 months they changed its name to REEBOK. Joe had been advised to protect their company’s name by registering it. As the surviving Founder of Reebok, Joe still welcomes the opportunity to travel and recount those early stories from start-up to taking the company to a $4 billion business, overtaking Adidas & Nike to become the World's No. 1 sports brand.

When Brian’s family business failed during the UK recession of the late 1980s, he lost what seemed like everything: his income, his home, and his marriage. He was 29 years old, £1 million in debt, and still relatively unable to read or write. It was at this seemingly low point that Brian discovered the keys to success: that you can change your life by changing your thoughts and feelings about it. Using simple but powerful techniques, Brian learned to hold positive thoughts by setting goals, and through those goals, he gradually transformed both himself and his life. Brian is now an international speaker on human potential and has empowered hundreds of thousands of people with his unique systems for success. As well as helping individuals to achieve their aims, Brian helps leading organizations such as Siemens, Microsoft and BT. He has also worked with renowned speakers such as Brendon Buchard, Anthony Robbins, Christopher Howard and T Harv Ecker. Learn more about Goal Mapping via https://goalmapping.com/
