Performing Under Pressure; Facebook Goes Meta; Enes Kanter + Nike

High-stress situations. We all know them, but how do we thrive under pressure and use it to our advantage? Dane Jensen, CEO at Third Factor and an instructor at Queen’s University and the University of North Carolina, joins The Business Communicators to share how some of our highest-pressure moments and what we do in those moments have a major impact on the trajectory of the rest of our lives.

Hailed by Entrepreneur as one of the top virtual speakers of 2020, Jensen shares insights on how business leaders, NAVY Seals and Paralympic athletes utilize pressure to increase their performance and how HR and the corporate world can do the same.  

Then, Austin, Hattie and Thomas discuss CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s announcement that the social media giant is renaming its company Meta. What does this mean for the company moving forward, and what lessons can Meta learn from other corporate rebrands?

The show closes with a discussion on 11-year NBA veteran Enes Kanter and his public outcry against Chinese President Xi Jinping, calling him an ‘insecure tyrant, and Nike’s failure to call out slave labor in the world’s largest country.
