  • The Green Knight: Michael Phelps
    leg In fact we had slipped to third place when Phelps dove in for the third leg 100m later we were in first and Jason Lezak wasn t about to give it up 8 gold medals and 7 world records in 9 days Michael Phelps what a machine Sure he s genetically predisposed to swimming but it takes much more than that to accomplish what he has Years of focused intense practice discipline to maintain perfect form even when exhausted mental toughness to push harder even when there is nothing left heart to persevere even when unthinkable success has already been achieved What I love most about his feat is that some of his golds came from team events His fate rested not just in his hands but also in the hands of others who wouldn t share the media attention glory or financial reward Yet they all rallied around him and dug down deep Jason Lezak especially to make it happen I m glad I woke up to watch I was inspired by the drive dedication and teamwork of those representing the USA Posted by Bryan Hassin at 03 27 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels Michael Phelps Olympics No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom About Me Bryan Hassin Cleantech entrepreneur with global experience Rice Owl IMD alum and lover of both wine and sports View my complete profile Google Badge Twitter Blog Archive 2016 1 January 1 2015 28 December 3 November 1 October 2 September 5 August 1 July 1 June 4 May 1 April 3 March 2 February 3 January 2 2014 26 November 4 October 3 August 3 July 3 June 7 April 1 March 3 February 1 January

  • The Green Knight: CSR
    every business be independently sustainable If not how can we ensure that those that aren t sustainable are balanced by surpluses from those that are These questions have some impact on my job search as well I sent in my first two applications yesterday to GE Energy Their renewables segment is growing by leaps and bounds and I m interested to learn more about it Furthermore such a large global corporation could be an excellent platform on which to work toward my goal of helping to change the world Or it could be bureaucratic inefficient and stymying at every turn We ll see While working on industry company research and cover letters I have been making my way through my music collection in alphabetical order by artist AC DC Air Supply Alice in Chains and Anne Murray were last week I just finished B B King yesterday and am now listening to all of the Beatles albums in chronological order Such good music And the weather is gorgeous today so I ll have to take a break from career strategy for some beach volley later on Oh and one more thing Michael Phelps is a hoss I m waking up at 4 AM tomorrow to watch him hopefully go 8 8 in Olympic golds What an inspiration Posted by Bryan Hassin at 06 12 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels CSR imd music volleyball No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom About Me Bryan Hassin Cleantech entrepreneur with global experience Rice Owl IMD alum and lover of both wine and sports View my complete profile Google Badge Twitter Blog Archive 2016 1 January 1 2015 28 December 3 November 1 October 2 September 5 August

  • The Green Knight: Ethics
    money If you choose not to save lives you are effectively killing When I frame the question that way my course of action is apparent I will save the lives It distills down to the same question faced by Nazi officers do I kill because I have been ordered to do so by my shareholders fuhrer Or do I adhere first to my own principles I am a principled human first and a CEO after I may be fired for my decision but what good is being CEO if you can t live with yourself My goal would be to communicate upfront the values that would drive my decision making in such a situation transparency and honesty with the shareholders Hopefully that would help ensure that I work for a company with similar values It seems like a theoretical academic question except that it was part of a case discussion involving a pharma company and its marketing of AIDS drugs in South Africa What are your thoughts on such a dilemma Posted by Bryan Hassin at 16 14 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels ethics imd 3 comments Anonymous said This is an excellent post thanks Olga Wednesday August 13 2008 at 1 38 00 PM EDT mrinal said Re jigging conscience Butnif u lose all money u end up killin even those who r ready to pay and bolster the sale for future research Sunday August 17 2008 at 10 19 00 AM EDT Bryan Guido Hassin said That is a valid concern and was brought out in classroom discussion We were given assumptions that included the fact that we would spend the same amount on research in either scenario Any money lost came exclusively out of profits that would have gone

  • The Green Knight: Career Strategy Update: Objective and Industries
    s of each industry and identify the specific activities that are most interesting and or offer the greatest opportunity to change the world 4 Identify and target specific companies that are most interesting within each targeted business activity Criteria include innovation financial performance market performance quality of work life quality of leadership opportunities for learning mentorship and geographic location travel 5 Market myself to targeted companies by networking on campus recruiting and unsolicited applications I am currently in steps 3 and 4 depending on the industry I have also subsumed my nanotechnology interest under green energy and commercial space operations The more I learned about nanotechnology the more I confirmed that my interests in it were almost exclusively insomuch as it relates to these other two industries My status for each of my remaining three target industries is as follows Green Energy Step 4 The sub industries that interest me most are Renewables solar wind tidal geothermal technology development e g nanotechnology thin film solar cells device manufacturing e g wind turbine manufacturing operations e g wind farm development Distribution technology development e g nanotechnology high efficiency transmission lines or high capacitance residential power storage Vestas world s largest wind turbine manufacturer and AES a power generator developer that includes renewables in its portfolio recruit on campus for their leadership development programs Shell which has more green energy in its offering than it used to also recruits here but I just don t get a great vibe from them in terms of fit In Step 4 I am identifying all of the other companies to target as well Technology Step 3 I am most interested in revolutionary web software companies not IT services companies but I am still in Step 3 identifying exactly which business activities and sub industries to target proactively Google recruits on campus and is definitely on my list Amazon may sign up too British Telecom has also contacted me and motivated me to open up a little to technology companies outside of my web software scope They are looking for global leaders to help them expand their concept of the 21st century network worldwide and are offering what sounds like a very appealing leadership development program Commercial Space Operations Step 3 I am still validating this industry to understand whether I should target it or not It is very nascent which is both exciting and challenging there are no industry reports for example I have contacts in NASA and NASA contractors but I really need to talk to people IN this industry and they are hard to find Using online networking tools I have generated some contacts at the Space Island Group http www spaceislandgroup com home html and am cold calling this week If anyone has other ideas about how to learn more about commercial space operations I would love to discuss Posted by Bryan Hassin at 15 03 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels career services 1
