Seize the Moment Podcast

Jan 22, 2023

On episode 157, we welcome Marianne Lewis to discuss both/and thinking as opposed to either/or thinking, the inherent paradoxes of our lives and our existential inability to fully transcend them, the false dichotomy of reason vs emotions and how both serve one another, the S-curve and the necessity of fostering other forms of success while still on top, why Lego was able to adapt and thrive and IBM wasn’t, creating guardrails to prevent an over-correction to  one option, getting stuck in emotional ruts and how to climb out of them, serendipity and the importance of creating your own luck, and the shared, implicit values underlying many political conflicts.

Marianne W. Lewis is dean of the University of Cincinnati's Lindner School of Business and a professor of management. She formerly served as dean at Cass Business School in London. Her work has appeared in major outlets such as the New York Times, CNBC, the Financial Times, and Harvard Business Review. Her new book, co-authored with Wendy Smith, is called Both/And Thinking: Embracing Creative Tensions to Solve Your Toughest Problems.
