Scott Shute on Full Body Yes, Practicing Compassion in Challenging Times, Changing Work from the Inside Out, Creativity, and More (#147)

“Compassion is having an awareness of others, a mindset of wishing the best for others, and the courage to take action.”

-Scott Shute

Scott Shute sits at the intersection of ancient wisdom traditions and the business world. He currently leads Mindfulness and Compassion programs at LinkedIn. After twenty five years of customer-oriented leadership roles, he found his dream job, where he gets to utilize his entire skill set and embrace his passions. In this work he explores the possibility of human potential, helping employees become the very best version of themselves.

He has been studying and practicing mindfulness and related wisdom teachings since he was thirteen years old, and teaching since he was in college. Ultimately, his intention is to build these practices and consciousness into the very fabric of the company – how we develop products, how we sell, how we service – in a way that serves our employees as well as our customers.

His another passion is photography. He always loved photography, but over the last few years it’s become a deepening obsession. He’s created a commercial website so that he can share and hone his craft, while donating the proceeds to charity.

Jordan Harbinger on Lesson Learned from Ray Dalio, Building Relationships Forgiveness, Relationship with Parents, and More (#145)

Jordan Harbinger has helped develop one of the leading self-development programs in the world, with a special expertise in social capital, relationship-building and authentic rapport. He is also the host of The Jordan Harbinger Show, where he interviews leading entrepreneurs, celebrities, writers and experts about psychology, performance, life and success. For all his work in the field, Forbes named Jordan one of the 50 best relationship-builders in the world, and Inc. Magazine recently called him “the Larry King of Podcasting.”

Jordan has shared his ideas around the world as a speaker and consultant. His work has been presented in Silicon Valley (at companies such as Google, Apple, Twitter, and Square) and to various government branches and agencies (including all branches of the U.S. Military, the Department of State, and Department of Defense). He has also given talks on security, social-engineering and psychology to BlackHat, DEFCON and Harvard Business School, and has advised private companies and law-enforcement agencies on their security and communications.

A former U.S. State Department employee and Wall Street attorney who speaks five languages, Jordan has spent several years abroad in Europe and the developing world, including South America, Eastern Europe, the Balkans and the Middle East. He has worked for various governments and NGOs overseas, traveled through war zones, led several trips through North Korea, and been kidnapped—twice. (The only reason he’s still alive and kicking is because of his ability to talk his way into (and out of) just about any situation.)

On The Jordan Harbinger Show, Jordan shares all of this experience—and the system born as a result—with his listeners.
