Hey there everyone! Psyched to welcome a best-selling author this week, Kim Scott!

Kim is the author of the NYT & WSJ bestseller Radical Candor: Be a Kickass Boss without Losing your Humanity. Kim led AdSense, YouTube, and Doubleclick teams at Google and then joined Apple University to develop and teach “Managing at Apple.” Kim has been a CEO coach at Dropbox, Qualtrics, Twitter, and several other tech companies.

This episode is fun, because we talk about what it’s like to manage people – specifically those who are neuroatypical. Got employees? Heck, got friends? Listen to this episode. You’ll learn a lot.

My favorite line: “Radical Candor sounds different with each person to whom you talk”

Anyone who knows me knows that I'm an avid cyclist. Whether I'm doing leisurely loops around Central Park, or hundred mile rides while training for my next Ironman, if I'm exercising and not running, I can either be found on my Specialized Venge, or my Peloton spin bike. Not only is it amazing exercise, not only is it a bicycle seat a great place from which to see the world, but for me, probably the best benefit of cycling is the massive dopamine hit that I get from ten minutes into my ride, that lasts for several hours after the ride has ended. There's truly nothing like it.

That's why, when I found out that Specialized Bicycles had a non-profit component called The Specialized Foundation, and that The Specialized Foundation focuses on getting school kids with ADHD on bicycles as a way to temper the negative effects of ADHD, there was absolutely no question that I had to get the heads of the foundation on the FTN Podcast.

This amazing organization is doing incredible things for kids with ADHD, and they're growing by the day. I'm so honored to be joined by both Ted Theocheung, the CEO of the Specialized Foundation, and Kimberly Price, Ph.D., Director of Research and School Programs for the Specialized Foundation.

This is, yet again, more proof that exercise is one of the key components to utilizing the faster brain of someone with ADHD. The research is strong, the foundation is doing amazing things to prove that. This is an interview you don't want to miss, whether you have children or not!

I guess Queen was right when they said "Get on you bikes and ride!"

Let's face it - If you're a manager, chances are, you're going to be managing some neuro-atypical employees, if you're not already. Considering some studies are saying that four out of ten new hires in the next ten years are going to be on the spectrum of ADD, ADHD, OCD, or similar, how you start dealing with these employees now will determine how easy it is to get your new hires later.

That's where this week's guest comes in. Bruce Tulgan is internationally recognized as the leading expert on young people in the workplace and one of the leading experts on leadership and management. Bruce is a best-selling author, an adviser to business leaders all over the world, and a sought-after keynote speaker and management trainer.

Since 1995, Bruce has worked with tens of thousands of leaders and managers in hundreds of organizations ranging from Aetna to Wal-Mart; from the Army to the YMCA.

He's currently the chairman of Rainmaker Thinking, and talks to us today about what bosses and managers need to know about the next generation of employees.

Enjoy!
