Most of the time, when people talk about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), they’re referring to education policy and school curriculums. Did you know that STEM organizations exist at the enterprise level, too?
Our guest is Dr. Ryan Lahti, founder and managing principal of OrgLeader, and author of “The Finesse Factor.” Dr. Lahti is a strategic adviser to Fortune 500 and mid-size companies, teaching business leaders how to optimize the performance of organizations driven by science, technology, engineering and math.
Ryan shares some of the stories and data included in his book, and discusses the methods he used to get his message out. In addition, we talk about how authoring a book is a different animal than writing an article, and why you need to practice what you preach (or write!). Exceptional leadership is critical for STEM organizations, and Dr. Lahti knows why!
As Ryan shares how he became a Thought Leader, we also have some thoughts on the paths that lead to Accidental Thought Leaders.
