763: Why Work-From-Anywhere Is Here to Stay
27 min
Prithwiraj (Raj) Choudhury, associate professor at Harvard Business School, was studying the growing work-from-anywhere movement long before the Covid-19 pandemic forced many more of us into virtual work. He says that more and more organizations are adopting WFA as a business strategy, one that not only reduces real estate costs but also boosts employee engagement and productivity. He acknowledges that there are challenges to creating and maintaining all-remote workforces but outlines research-based best practices for overcoming them. Choudhury is the author of the HBR article "Our Work from Anywhere Future."

131: Working With Friends and Family with Chris Prefontaine
Working with family or close friends might seem like a recipe for disaster. But, when approached with clarity and open communications, it can be a highly rewarding experience for everyone. Today’s guest is Chris Prefontaine. Chris is the founder of Smart Real Estate Coach, host of the Smart Real Estate Coach Podcast and best selling author of 2017’s Real Estate on Your Terms and this year’s The New Rules of Real Estate Investing. He operates his family business with his son, Nick, his daughter, Kayla, his son-in-law, Zach, and an amazing team. Chris and I talk about the complexities of working with family or close friends, how to create a culture that feels like family at work, what to consider if you’re thinking of starting a business or hiring a friend or family member and more. This was a particularly fun episode because as you’ll hear, I’m also part of a family business, and, given that last week’s interview with Dave Schramm was about the connection between family and workplace culture, it seemed appropriate that this conversation should follow that one.

Read the related blog article: How to Create A Healthy Work Culture in a Family Business Key Takeaways: * If you have both related and unrelated employees on your team, create a work culture that makes everyone feel like they’re family. * Establish a company mission and core values. Use them to guide your decisions instead of basing them on biases or gut reactions. * Hire for mission and values fit, rather than on a person’s relationship to you. This will ensure a level playing field for your employees regardless of their relationship to you. * To encourage a healthy culture based on your values, decide as a team what behaviors you want to see. Publicly recognize when anyone sees an employee exemplifying that behavior. * Establish clear, constant communication by using Morning Pow-Wow team meetings to bring everyone on the same page, collectively work through solutions, and enhance efficiency and productivity. * Make clear boundaries between your work and home life. Don’t bring negativity or challenges from work into your home / personal conversations. * Some benefits to managing a family business are (1) deeper pre-existing trust of the person, (2) the ability to set up generational wealth, and (3) the chance to invest in your family by giving them opportunities to try new things and watch them grow.

Clay Christensen's Forum for Growth and Innovation at the Harvard Business
66. Defending The Castle Against Disruptors: Jean Wright, MD/MBA on Innovation in Healthcare
Over a year ago, The Forum for Growth & Innovation team ventured to North Carolina to learn about the ways in which a group of innovators had spread the gospel of disruption to the senior leadership of Atrium Health. Regular listeners of the podcast may remember when we interviewed Atrium's Ann-Somers Hogg on her experience of studying the theories of Disruptive Innovation and Jobs To Be Done as an executive education participant at HBS, before bringing the learnings and language home to her team at Atrium Health and spreading it to senior leadership, including through enrollment in HBS Online's Disruptive Strategy course. This week, we are delighted to release, at long last, a conversation with the mind behind the mission: Jean Wright, MD/MBA, the former Chief Innovation Officer at Atrium Health. In her position, Jean was well aware of the challenges of disruption facing her industry and sought out ways to build a culture of innovation and learning at Atrium, for instance, by sending her employees to study at Harvard, Stanford, and MIT for executive education courses. This podcast was originally research material that was used by The Forum for Growth & Innovation to develop a case study of disruption in the healthcare industry. However, we thought it so compelling that we knew we had to share it with you as well. Dr. Wright offers lessons by example and experience in leadership, management, and innovation that we know you'll find inspiring and useful.

PwC
Payments to customers? Receipts from vendors? Help!
The accounting is relatively straightforward when cash is received from a customer or paid to a vendor. But what if you receive cash from the vendor and pay the customer? When everything is reversed, the accounting is not as easy and it may be more common than you expect. In this episode, Angela Fergason and Jay Seliber, partners in PwC’s National Office, join host Heather Horn to help you think through the accounting implications. Topics include: * *0:44 - Overview.* Before we begin navigating the accounting guidance, we set the stage by talking about why this topic generates so many questions and share common examples of transactions when this might occur.  * *4:50 - Consideration paid to a customer (ASC 606). *Angela explains the vendor’s accounting when payments are made to a customer, touching on related judgments and the timing of recognition. * *15:59 - Consideration received from a vendor (ASC 705-20).* Switching gears, Jay walks us through the guidance for situations when a customer receives money from a vendor, touching on the different models and sharing illustrative examples.  * *29:52 - Final reminders. *We close by sharing helpful reminders, highlighting the importance of assessing all of the relationships involved and not merely jumping to a default model.   Angela Fergason is a partner in PwC's National Office with over 20 years of experience who specializes in accounting for revenue and employee compensation arrangements. She is  a frequent speaker on accounting and financial reporting topics and is a contributor to many PwC National Office publications, including our accounting guides on revenue and stock-based compensation.

He helps clients with their most complex accounting matters, particularly in the areas of revenue recognition, stock compensation, employee benefits, restructurings, impairments, and financing transactions. Heather Horn is PwC’s National office thought leader, responsible for developing our communications strategy and conveying firm positions on accounting and financial reporting matters.
