In this social-media frenzied world every individual and company needs a CSO - a Chief Story Officer. People and companies today are losing their ability to connect with others in meaningful, authentic ways. Visit any shopping mall, college campus, or city park, and what do you see? People are focused on their smartphones. They are zombies walking around with their heads down, staring at their screens, bumping into other zombies, but never engaging in conversation. People have been drawn away from communicating through conversation. We are quickly becoming conduits in just another social distribution channel, ingesting and regurgitating others´ links and tweets and shares, and then shutting down without any authentic connection between human beings with souls and emotions. Sadly, our world has settled into this. It´s time to wake up all the zombies. It´s time to start becoming authentic, connected human beings. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rodney Henson.

He kissed Tasha and ran into the house to shower and change. By the time he returned to the patio, the women had just finished deciding on Mexican food. Of course Tasha knew of a place that delivered, and she instructed Todd to start making margaritas. The three moved to the living room and soon the celebration was in full swing. Lydia was happy. She loved the company, loved the booze, and loved the food when it arrived. The three reminisced and Todd enjoyed the stories Tasha told of various adventures in their upbringing. Once they finished eating, Todd blended up another pitcher of margaritas and they all went out to the patio to relax for a bit. The pitcher was stronger, and after her third margarita, Lydia started to feel the effects of the alcohol. She stared at Tasha. You´re so damn gorgeous, she thought and then gasped when she realized she hadn´t thought it to herself but had actually made the comment out loud.

Traditional businesses follow a simple formula: create a product or service, sell it, collect money. But in the last few years a fundamentally different model has taken root—one in which consumers have more choices, more tools, more information, and more peer-to-peer power. Pioneering entrepreneur Lisa Gansky calls it the Mesh and reveals why it will dominate the future of business. Mesh companies use social media, wireless networks, and data crunched from every available source to provide people with goods and services at the exact moment they need them, without the burden and expense of owning them outright. Gansky reveals how there is real money to be made and trusted brands and strong communities to be built in helping your customers buy less but use more. Consider the explosive growth of Zipcar. By exploiting the latest technology and making it easy and affordable to have a car whenever you need one, this young company is helping to redefine personal transportation - and deeply worrying its established competitors. Gansky shows how the same pattern is playing out with less famous Mesh companies that are reinventing an enormous range of industries. In the tradition of The Long Tail, The Mesh illustrates a huge opportunity that’s already driving new businesses and renewing old ones. It’s your essential guide to the next wave of information-enabled commerce that’s also improving our communities and our planet. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lisa Gansky.

What makes them so successful, and more importantly, how do they do it? In VICTORIA: Treat Your Company Like A Lady, Stefan A. Malfliet analyzes and provides a framework based on the individual needs of a company, or ´´Victoria´´, as he refers to a company. The six basic needs of Victoria are: Simplicity vs. Complexity: Is the need to simplify so a foundation is built to venture into new challenges? Adventure: Every Victoria has an urge for adventure. It makes her tick. The most significant of adventures is to be a visionary in this world. Significance: What is the point when what she stands for does not mean anything or will eventually become obsolete? Passion: She shares a passion for her customer, product, service, and all the people that she interacts with on a daily basis. Growth: If she does not GROW, she DIES! Contribution: This is the dream of being part of the infinite game of sharing and being able to pass on what she stands for to the world. In other words, to multiply! Learning to recognize the balance of Victoria´s needs can unlock the path to the successful implementation of any initiative within your company. Through many practical examples based on Stefan´s 25 years of experience as both an executive and an entrepreneur, he explains how to balance Victoria´s needs and how anybody can do it.
