How to create a culture of learning and growth?

Marketing podcast with Whitney Johnson

In this episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I interview Whitney Johnson. Whitney is CEO of tech-enabled talent development company Disruption Advisors. She is one of the top ten business thinkers in the world as named by Thinkers50. Whitney is an expert on smart growth leadership and co-founded the Disruptive Innovation Fund with the late Clayton Christensen of Harvard Business School. She is also the author of the book – Smart Growth: How to Grow Your People to Grow Your Company.

Main takeaway:

Growing is the goal. Helping people develop their potential and become the selves they want to be and be able to be is what leaders strive for. And as individuals grow, organizations grow too. If you want to lead and scale an organization, that transformation starts within. In this episode, I talk to Whitney Johnson about how to grow a business—the smart way—by cultivating a culture of learning and growing.

Questions I ask Whitney Johnson:

[1:26] How do you apply the S Curve of Learning to growth and leadership?
[2:48] Sometimes there is a point in the S Curve of Learning where, although it takes off, it can take a nosedive. Is this something you see happening in personal development?
[4:09] I’ll have my own business in 30 years. And I feel like there’s not just one S-growth curve – what’s your take on that?
[6:50] Would you say your book is as much about personal development as it is about leadership development?
[8:14] What are some of the new habits or questions that people should start asking themselves instead of just saying this is the new way we’re going to do things?
[9:54] What advice do you have for people trying to get through the long part where they may not see any progress?
[13:25] How can a leader or someone who is trying to develop personally apply the ‘collect like a child’ idea from your book?
[15:43] Do you think the leadership part in your book is harder to install because of the different cultural aspects within different organizations?
[17:19] Your book is full of interviews – is there a story in the book that you think did really well?
[19:37] Where can people learn more about your book and your work?
