Podcast 99: The Meaning Revolution with Fred Kofman

Goodtrue&beautiful (20) (1)

Since 1990, Fred Kofman has designed and facilitated programs on leadership, personal mastery, team learning, organizational effectiveness and coaching for thousands of executives, and consultants worldwide.

His book, Conscious Business, has been translated to more than ten languages and received numerous awards. Conscious Business was recently named by Sheryl Sandberg in her New York Times interview as “the business book every executive should read” http://nyti.ms/Z1Kory (page 2).

After completing a Ph.D. in economics from Berkeley, California, Fred taught Management Accounting and Control Systems at the Sloan School of Management where in 1992 was named “Professor of the Year”. During his time at MIT, Fred worked alongside Peter Senge as a senior researcher at the Center for Organizational Learning.

His approach to leadership has little to do with the standard practices taught in business school and traditional books. Bringing together economics and business theory, communications and conflict resolution, family counseling and mindfulness meditation, Kofman argues in The Meaning Revolution that our most deep-seated, unspoken, and universal anxiety stems from our fear that our life is being wasted–that the end of life will overtake us when our song is still unsung.

After serving as VP of Executive Development for LinkedIn from 2013-2018, Fred has recently taken his work to Google where he is now an advisor for Leadership Development.

Choices and Decisions

These are not the same. They’re similar, but not the same.

We have choices.

We make decisions.

The better decisions we make, the more choices we will probably have.

And the more we study beauty and joy the more we’re finding they’re the offspring of variety.
