E0029 - Who Becomes a Leader? (It Could Be You) (S0002)

Are leaders born, or made? Larry Singell answers that question — and others about leadership — with his enthusiasm for basketball and baseball, which has intertwined with his research on leadership throughout his career. Singell's research in the field of applied labor economics focuses on the role that education plays in labor-market outcomes and the extent to which these investments differentially affect choices and opportunities. More recently, he has focused on the economics of higher education, studying a wide range of topics — from the effects of financial aid programs on access, retention, and graduation, to the ways in which education and career choices affect faculty placement in academic leadership positions.

E0018 - Primal Branding | Patrick Hanlon | TEDxElPaso (S0001)

In one of the most original books of its kind ever written, Patrick Hanlon explains how the most powerful brands create a community of believers, revealing the seven components that will help every company and marketer capture the public imagination—and seize a bigger slice of the pie. What is the magic glue that adheres consumers to Google, Mini Cooper, and Oprah, but not to others? Why do many brands with great product innovation, perfect locations, terrific customer experiences, and breakthrough advertising fail to get the same visceral traction in the marketplace that brands like Apple, Starbucks, or Nike have? After years of working with famous brands like Absolut, Ford Motor Company, LEGO, Disney, Montblanc, Sara Lee, and others, Patrick Hanlon, senior advertising executive and founder of Thinktopia, decided to find the answers. His search revealed seven definable assets that together construct the belief system that lies behind every successful brand, whether it's a product, service, city, personality, social cause, or movement.

These techniques work for everyone involved in creating and selling an image, from marketing managers to social advocates to business leaders seeking to increase customer preference for new or existing products. Primalbranding presents a world of new possibilities for everyone trying to spark public appeal—and the opportunity to move from being just another product on the shelf to becoming a desired and necessary part of the culture. ...
