Maria Gamb is author of Healing the Corporate World: How Value-Based Leadership Transforms Business from the Inside Out. She spent more than 20 years directing and managing successful businesses included Macy’s, Geoffrey Beene, Liz Claiborne, and Polo-Ralph Lauren in roles such as Designer, Product Manager and Director. But she was not respecting who she was — as a woman, as a leader, or as a spiritual being — so she left the security she had worked so hard to achieve to found her consulting practice NMS (“no more stress”) Communications in 2007. Tune in on Friday to hear Maria expand on her belief that “as more people join in and embrace new-paradigm values in the workplace, the collective shift this engenders will enable us all to leverage our resources and create massive and exceptionally positive change around us.”

Stockholm-based psychologist,Per-Olof Eriksson was contacted by Swedish telecom giant Ericsson, in 1997, and asked to work with them to adapt and implement a life and career coaching program originally offered by the Swedish tax authority. Ericsson says about itself,”the entire company will become more successful if you are motivated and inspired.” Per-Olof, who had founded career company Triolog in 1994, worked with Ericsson to build on the Propeller program which eventually spread to police and even prison authorities, resulting in 43% of users manifesting some form of career mobility within three months, and generally seen as a success in its own right, and a means of attracting new hires. Listen online or on your radio for Per-Olof’s global career insights, and his own story, bypassing an earlier career as a photographer to live out a boyhood dream of becoming a psychologist from his roots “born and raised as a workers’ child.”
