Charlene Li on Glambition Radio with Ali Brown

Charlene Li, Author of ‘The Disruption Mindset’ — Glambition Radio Episode 184 with Ali Brown


She says we’ve been approaching disruption—and growth—completely backward. And bestselling author and leadership disruptor Charlene Li is here to change that.

On #GlambitionRadio, Charlene reveals why growth creates disruption (not the other way around), and why leading from the edge isn’t for everyone. Her perspective is different from any I’ve heard before, and it affirmed of some of the disruptive decisions I’ve made that at times weren’t understood by my team and clients.

Charlene doesn’t shy away from the reality that making a disruptive decision—what she calls the ‘big gulp moment’—can feel scary and painful.

From decades in the powerful C-suites of Wall Street to today helping women of all levels invest for themselves, Sallie Krawcheck is a force to be reckoned with.

Caroline Criado-Perez, Activist + Author of ‘Invisible Women’ — Glambition Radio Episode 180 with Ali Brown

The cars we buy, the drugs we’re prescribed, even the A/C settings in conference rooms — are determined by data. And disturbingly, most of this data stems from ‘objective scientific’ research that still today completely leaves out half of the population: women. On GlambitionRadio.com, author and activist Caroline Criado-Perez reveals the shocking impact on women of a world designed by (and for) for men, and how she decided to write ‘Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men’.
On #GlambitionRadio, Caroline also opens up about the frightening experience when her campaign for better women’s representation on English currency led to such a level of harassment on Twitter (death threats and worse) that the platform changed their complaint procedures as a result.

Your Ego Loves False Metrics on Glambition Radio with Ali Brown

‘Your Ego Loves False Metrics’ — Glambition Radio Episode 179 with Ali Brown

Join me for an upfront conversation this week on #GlambitionRadio to determine whether the metrics you are honoring in your business could actually be leading you down the WRONG path.

On this solo episode, I share some stories of metrics gone right… and wrong… including examples of both the new strategy Madonna is using for her tour and the grand fiasco of WeWork’s failed IPO. (Two opposite ends of the spectrum!)

I also disclose an important shift I made in the metrics I decided to STOP honoring and those I decided to START honoring, once I had my twins six years ago.

Vicky Tsai on Glambition Radio with Ali Brown

Vicky Tsai, Founder + CEO of Tatcha — Glambition Radio Episode 178 with Ali Brown

The founder of skin care brand Tatcha (which I am currently obsessed with) reveals the behind-the-scenes story of how she built her global luxury beauty company, recently acquired for a rumored $500 million, today on GlambitionRadio.com.It started in 2009, when Vicky Tsai was desperately searching for products that didn’t aggravate her skin. She found answers in an unexpected place: a 200-year-old Japanese beauty manuscript detailing the generations-old skin care practices embraced by geisha.

Amazed by her healed skin, Vicky hired scientists and researchers so more people could experience these products (I was sold the first time I tried a Tatcha mask — I share that story in the episode).

When Shonda Rhimes came to AZ…

You know who Shonda Rhimes is, right?
She achieved almost everything a TV producer could hope for during her long run at ABC.
She evolved into not only one of the most prolific writer-producers in the business, but also a mogul, as the founder and head of her Shondaland production company.
ABC filled its entire Thursday night lineup with her shows — from ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ to ‘Scandal’ and ‘How to Get Away With Murder’.
But there’s something I wanted to share with you here, because you can probably relate…
She shared during an interview that during this time of ultimate success, she was also getting… restless.

Jennifer Maanavi, CEO + Co-Founder of Physique 57 — Glambition Radio Episode 177 with Ali Brown

Physique 57 co-founder Jennifer Maanavi loved taking dance-inspired barre classes in New York City. The elegant, sophisticated movement suited her in a way the gym never did. So when the studio she loved suddenly closed, she knew someone had to keep this method alive. And she thought… ‘it might as well be me’.

Drawing on her MBA, Jennifer put together a business plan and recruited Tanya Becker, a star barre instructor. Within 20 minutes of their first meeting in 2006, Jennifer and Tanya realized they had the same vision: ‘to bring this method to women around the world’.

My love/hate thing with Kanye West…

One thing I love to do at my events is pull in pop culture examples of interesting business and success principles.
For example, I have a love/hate thing with Kanye West.
[Fun fact: He and I shared a celebrity house-call doctor in Los Angeles for several years. If you search hard enough online, you can hear a recording from a few years ago of my doc calling in to request a 5150 hold on Kanye. I think it’s somewhere on TMZ. Classy website they are!]
I don’t really like Kanye’s music.
