Why We Loathe Leadership Training (16:21) Sydney Finkelstein, Ph.D., is the Steven Roth Professor of Management and Faculty Director of the Center for Leadership at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College. Professor Finkelstein has published 20 books and 80 articles, including the #1 bestseller “Why Smart Executives Fail.” His latest book that we talked about back in February is titled “Superbosses: How Exceptional Leaders Manage the Flow of Talent.”  Dr. Finkelstein is here this morning to help talk to us about new ways and rules for motivating others.  Why money is an impoverished metric of generosity (1:05:02) Dr. Richard Gunderman is Chancellor’s professor of Radiology, Pediatrics, Medical Education, Philosophy, Liberal Arts, Philanthropy, and Medical Humanities and Health Studies at Indiana University.  Often we hear about people like John Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie as some of the most generous Americans of all times. Lists of the most generous philanthropists in the US are regularly produced to show how much these men and women give away. But these lists distort our understanding of generosity. Dr. Gunderman recently released an article about charitiable giving and how time is many times more valuable than money.
