Jim Collins - best business author of his generation

“Bill [Lazier] would always remind our students, the most important thing is to do work you love, with people you love. And if you do work you love, with people you love, you win.”

Jim Collins is an entrepreneurial researcher, however he’s most well known for being a best selling author of multiple books that frankly, if you're listening to this podcast and you haven't read, you've definitely got your priorities all wrong. 

We celebrate all things entrepreneur on Secret Leaders, having been in the game for almost 10 years ourselves. And one of the first books we ever read, as every budding, new or even seasoned entrepreneur should, was Good To Great. The timeless, classic, entrepreneurial handbook written by two experts. 

Jim’s latest book, Beyond Entrepreneurship 2.0, a revamped and updated version of the original, is an homage to his co-author and late mentor, the inimitable Bob Lazier.

“I asked Bill one day, I said, ‘So what makes a great relationship?’ He says, ‘oh, if you ask each person in the relationship, who benefits more from the relationship, they each independently would say, I do’.”

Jim, by his own definition, is not normal. But then, we argue, what exceptional leader of industry is? That's why we invite people like him onto this show, so listeners can learn all about them. 

And this episode is one of the best. Jam packed full of tasty tidbits and inspiration, you should have your pen ready, because this is bound to fire up your neurons and get your thinking juices flowing. 

“Leadership is a responsibility not an entitlement, or decision, not an accident, a matter of willful action, not genetics, whether you learn to lead greatly in the end, is a choice.” 

We chat about:

  • Bill Lazier
  • Writing Good to Great in the spirit of relationships
  • Level five leaders
  • The myth of the entrepreneurial temperament 
  • His encounters with Steve Jobs
  • The Stockdale paradox
  • Why Patagonia is such a great company

Gelong Thubten - How to Start a Meditation Practice That Actually Sticks (with Guided Session)
This is a very special episode with Gelong Thubten, the Buddhist monk, meditation teacher and author. At the age of 21, Thubten gave up the life of an actor and ordained as a Tibetan Buddhist monk at the Kagyu Samye Ling in Scotland - Europe’s oldest and largest Tibetan Buddhist monastery. He has spent over six years in intensive meditation retreats, the longest of which was 4 years, and he has been trained by some of the world’s greatest masters of meditation. He is now regarded as one of the UK's most influential meditation teachers. Thubten contributed to Ruby Wax's most recent book, How to Be Human (stay tuned for my interview with Ruby in the coming weeks!). His own book, A Monk's Guide to Happiness was a Sunday Times Top Ten Bestseller with editions in 10 countries internationally.  He was kind enough to come and tell his story (with admirable honesty and humility), but also treat us to a guided meditation practice after spelling out perhaps the simplest and most effective explanation of how to meditate I've ever heard. Listen as we discuss: * Gelong Thubten's life as a party animal through his teenage years. * The resulting brutal burnout that led him to a meditation practice. * His decision to join a monastery for a year - that turned into 26 years. * His 9 month silent retreat. * Is the monk path the best path? * How Thubten's extreme nature made it difficult for him to meditate. * Spiritual materialism and the phenomenon of "faking" spirituality early in training. * You know you're on the right track if your compassion is growing. * The simplest explanation of how to actually meditate (the best I've heard) * The importance of setting a time limit to meditate * A short guided meditation practice led by the teacher himself, Gelong Thubten Instagram: @mo_gawdat Facebook: @mo.gawdat.official Twitter: @mgawdat LinkedIn: /in/mogawdat Connect with Gelong Thubten on Instagram @gelongthubten, on Facebook @GelongThubtenOfficial, on Twitter @Gelong_Thubten, and his website, Don't forget to subscribe to Slo Mo for new episodes every Monday and Thursday.
