Are you a giver or a taker? | Behavioral psychologist Adam Grant on personality dynamics and how to hire a winning team
Have you ever wondered how the most successful companies make their hires? Or what makes for a winning team? Have you ever wanted to know just what characteristics distinguish the most innovative entrepreneurs? Or what makes someone truly original? In this episode of the Tony Robbins Podcast, we sit down with renowned organizational psychologist, Adam Grant to discuss personality dynamics, motivation and meaning, and what that all means for you and your business. Adam has been Wharton’s top-rated professor for five straight years. He has been recognized as one of the world’s 25 most influential management thinkers and Fortune’s 40 under 40. He is the author of two New York Times bestselling books translated into 35 languages, and has recently co-authored a new book with Sheryl Sandberg called Option B - about facing adversity, building resilience and finding joy. And he writes on work and psychology for the New York Times. Adam’s TED talks on original thinkers and givers and takers have been viewed more than 8 million times. And his speaking and consulting clients include Facebook, Google, the NBA, Merck, Goldman Sachs, Pixar, the U.S. Army and Navy, and the World Economic Forum, where he has been honored as a Young Global Leader. In this episode, host Ana Yoerg talks with Adam about just how businesses can get the most out of their employees, and how employees can get the most out of their jobs. They dig into the personality dynamics of givers and takers, innovators and original thinkers. And they discuss why it’s so important to not just meet customer expectations, but to always exceed them.

Airbnb & The Art of Resilience | How a flexible strategy and strong perseverance built a $30B company
In this episode of the Tony Robbins Podcast, we are bringing back to Business Mastery one more time, where Tony recently led a panel discussion with the business leaders behind some of today’s fastest growing companies. And for this episode, you’re going to hear from one of the founders of a company that change the travel industry forever. When is the last time you booked a trip somewhere? Where did you stay? Was it a hotel? Or did you opt for the alternative and rent a room, or maybe an entire house, from a local? The idea of staying in a stranger’s home may have blown your mind a few years ago, but today it’s not just a standard practice, it’s actually the preferred accommodation for tens of millions of travelers across the world. And there’s one company to thank for that – Airbnb. Airbnb started as a simple solution to a pressing problem; co-founders Joe Gebbia and Brian Chesky couldn’t afford rent, so they opened up their San Francisco apartment for guests to stay in. They soon realized they may be onto something bigger than just a way to avoid being evicted. So, along with their old roommate, Nathan Blecharczyk, they started to build it into a business. But that was nearly 10 years ago. Airbnb has evolved substantially since then, though it was by no means a straight path to success. In fact, they launched and relaunched a number of times. They found themselves up to their ears in debt, rejected by investors over and over and were very close to flatlining on more than one occasion. You will hear their story of perseverance, and how they were able to find opportunities for massive growth where there were seemingly none. You will also hear about the importance their design background played in creating trust amidst strangers and giving customers the experience they wanted. And you will hear how they transcended cultural boundaries and were ultimately able to turn a floundering idea into a global business that operates in more than 34,000 cities in 91 countries, and is now estimated to be worth $30 billion.

The Ultimate Customer Experience | Warby Parker Co-Founder Neil Blumenthal on giving customers everything they didn’t know they need
In this episode of the Tony Robbins Podcast, we are bringing you back to Business Mastery, where Tony recently led a panel discussion with the business leaders behind some of today’s fastest growing companies. And this time, you’re going to hear from one of the founders of a company that changed the eyewear business forever. If you have ever worn eyeglasses, then you know that the traditional process is expensive and inconvenient. On average, a pair of glasses costs nearly $300. And the trips you have to make to the retailer to sift through the pairs, try them on, and order your final choice can really stack up. It’s a real pain point for a lot of people. But that is exactly why four friends at Wharton Business School decided to start a business that did something about it. Neil Blumenthal, Dave Gilboa, Andy Hunt and Jeff Raider launched Warby Parker in 2010. The premise was simple - offer customers high-quality eyewear at affordable prices, and establish a convenient, direct-to-consumer model so that customers could get eyeglasses anytime and anywhere. But what made this company so special was how focused they were on perfecting the customer experience and the massive amounts of research and experimentation they did to find that sweet spot.  In this episode, you are going to hear from Neil Blumenthal on the vision behind Warby Parker, why it was so critical for them to optimize every single dollar they put into the company and the tools and strategies that helped them build Warby Parker into a billion dollar business.
