Executives After Hours: Real conversations with leaders!
About This Show
Every CEO, CFO, and senior leader IS a unique story, and these stories are shared on Executives After Hours. Unlike many other podcasts that focus on organizational tactics or market trends, these podcasts aim to share authentic conversations with real leaders. We chat about their personal journeys, rather than their current positions. So, sit down and join us on these hour-long conversations where we talk about successes and failures, from childhood to marriage and beyond. Across these interviews, you learn about common traits of successful executives as well as what animal best represents their management styles, what they want their gravestones to say, and how they define happiness.

Today on Executives After Hours I had the pleasure to speak with Allen Fahden. Allen, like many of my guest's, has come from what would seem like the abyss. Allen is an author, corporate trainer, and former stand-up comic Allen Fahden has consulted with countless Fortune 500 companies, as well as celebrity business owners such as Paul McCartney and Bill Murray. Allen has been featured by People Magazine, ABC News, BBC TV, and countless television and radio broadcasts, as well as syndicated and local print media across the U.S. Creator of the Team Dimension Profile, Allen has also written chapters for best-selling The One Minute Millionaire by Chicken Soup for the Soul co-author Mark Victor Hansen. Allen’s profiles have sold over a million copies internationally. Preproduction copies of his upcoming book, Another Boring, Derivative, Piece of Crap Business Book have received critical acclaim. The innovation and team techniques featured in Allen’s work have resulted from years of developing ways to create new ideas that will sell to both clients and the mass market. His experience in the field includes presiding over his own award-winning advertising agency, as well as serving as Vice-president and Creative Director of D’Arcy, Masius, Benton, and Bowles, and Senior Writer for accounts such as Levi’s at Foote, Cone, and Belding in San Francisco. He also led John Ryan Co. from revenue of $7 million to $29 million the first year he took over as Senior Vice President of Creative and pre-booked another $44 million for the year after that using the methods he now teaches his clients. Over 30 years working with teams as a corporate executive and as a trainer in Edwards Deming’s Quality processes, Allen identified an understanding of people’s strengths that allow them to triple their performance in the beginning creating, planning and decision stages. By appreciating what a team member can do, and not expecting them to do what they can’t, he has freed people to transform their work, relationships, and purpose.
