“Sometimes sideways or backwards turns into a slingshot,”

Whitney Johnson on Green Connections Radio

Do you want to make a bigger impact? To be yourself at work? Listen to this enlightening conversation between Green Connections Radio host Joan Michelson and Whitney Johnson, award-winning executive from Wall Street to Twitter and author of “Disrupt Yourself.”

Grab a pen and paper or your laptop to take notes, and you’ll want to listen to it a couple of times, too. Every few minutes has something you’ll want to think about in the context of your own life and choices.

Here are a few tidbits:

  • How to see a problem others are trying to solve – and show them how you can help solve it.
  • How to figure out your strengths – and why it’s probably not what you think.
  • How constraints can be inspiring.
  • How to sell your “great idea.”
  • The #1 factor that makes a successful CEO.
