Change has changed.
That is the premise of bestselling author Erika Andersen’s latest book, Change from the Inside Out, a primer for businesses and individuals on how to rethink change — typically viewed as difficult, costly, and uncomfortable — and instead embrace it as doable, rewarding, and routine.
Erika, founder of Proteus International, is a consultant and advisor to top executives at organizations including Amazon, Spotify, and the Yale School of Public Health. She has made a career out of helping her clients become “change-capable” leaders; able to respond to, and actually benefit from, the rapid speed and relentless nature of change.
Are you prepared for whatever comes next?
Join host and award-winning journalist Dean Rotbart as he and Erika explore the many advantages of greeting change with a fresh, positive perspective.

Last week’s partial lunar eclipse attracted millions of people to gaze at our nearest celestial neighbor.
One of them, Daniel Sax, has designs on more than just staring at the moon. He intends to mine the crusty orb for water and oxygen, essentials that future planetary travelers will need to sustain them on lunar bases and fuel their voyages to Mars and beyond.
Daniel is the co-founder of Toronto-based Canadian Space Mining Corporation, launched in August 2020. He aims to propel Canada to the forefront of the anticipated demand for space-based supply chains and utilities, and he’s drawing a lot of interest from prospective investors and government officials.
Host and award-winning journalist Dean Rotbart says what makes Daniel’s story so compelling — and relevant to all entrepreneurs — is that he not only dreams big, he is crafting a pioneering business to turn his dreams into a reality.

For more than a century, General Electric stood as a beacon of American manufacturing and ingenuity. The 129-year-old company was once the most valuable U.S. corporation; its brand emblazoned on tens of thousands of products from light bulbs to nuclear power plants.
On November 8th, GE, which has been in decline for years, announced that it would spin out its remaining operations into three separate companies, in effect, heralding the end of General Electric as the world knew it.
What went wrong and what can today’s business owners and leaders learn from the rise and fall of GE? Gary Hoover, executive director at American Business History Center and a leading business historian, is host Dean Rotbart’s special guest this week.

How Transforming Into an ‘Unfear’ Business Can Lead to Breakthrough Performance and Improve Employee Satisfaction
Fear is a stick that many bosses use to squeeze extra productivity out of their employees: Fear of job loss, fear of career stagnation, and even fear of humiliation in front of their colleagues.
There remains a place for fear in the workplace — when well-managed — but two former McKinsey and Company consultants have helped more than 1,000 business leaders and hundreds of organizations embrace the “Unfear” methods of leadership, leading to breakthrough success and elevated levels of employee satisfaction.
This week, authors Gaurav Bhatnagar and Mark Minukas share with host and award-winning journalist Dean Rotbart how fear — properly channeled — provides valuable opportunities for individuals and organizations to learn and grow.
