How to Thrive in an Upside-Down World

The joke is that the only person in the world who normally welcomes change is a baby with a dirty diaper. Indeed, a change in the status quo means we have to exert energy to deal with that change and people are generally loath to expend more energy than necessary. Scientists call this phenomenon trying to avoid the “metabolic cost” of expending mental and physical energy. You and I call it preferring to live life like a house cat, if we only could! In this episode, April Rinne offers advice based on her eight rules for navigating change more adroitly. Part of her advice has to do with slowing down, setting a sustainable pace to avoid burnout in ever more demanding careers. But there’s more. How may higher education change, including MBA programs, in a world where more and more of us will be part of the Gig Economy? Listen in for Rinne’s unique perspective.

Confident Money

What goes around, comes around—and that is especially true when it comes to behavioral economics. Who was quick to recognize that emotions drive people’s financial decisions and behavior? The answer is Adam Smith, who was both instrumental in creating the field of economics and a moral philosopher to boot. In that same vein is my guest this week, Nika Kabiri, who knows the Confirmation Bias is among the most important factors to navigate in helping her clients make their investment choices. Along the way, this conversation takes in the movie The Big Short, Federal Reserve Board chairman Jerome Powell, and what may lay ahead for an economy trying to emerge from the ravages of Covid-19. Five types of investors are likewise discussed in this episode, from the more-is-better investor to the what-has-always-worked investor. Figure out which type of investor you are, and how you can become more confident about your investment strategy.

Decoding Your Risk Fingerprint

Today I talked to Michele Wucker about her new book You Are What You Risk: The New Art and Science of Navigating an Uncertain World (Pegasus Books, 2021)

Your risk fingerprint is a mixture of how personality traits, experiences, and social context have shaped how you approach risk and uncertainty in life. Also crucial is your risk empathy and the degree to which you are risk-savvy, both of which value reading your environment in analyzing the risk you and others face and how people are coping with unknowns. This episode explore risk in terms of a variety of situations and segments of the population. Are millennials risk-averse or risk savvy? Why are white male who are risk-takers people who tend to trust institutions and be anti-egalitarian? How should companies approach mergers and acquisitions when the two companies have very different risk cultures? And finally, which professions tend to be the most prone to over-confidence? In every case, “it depends” is a fair answer but by no means all that you will hear on these and other topics.

Michele Wucker has been honored as a Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum and a Guggenheim Fellow. Her third book, The Gray Rhino, inspired a popular TED talk and has influenced world markets, government policy and business strategies.
