When Bonny Simi was 14, wearing overalls and T-shirts and living in a tiny Southern California mountain town, her life was transformed one day in high school by a guest speaker who preached the virtue of setting life goals. “We had this assembly, and this guy came in,” recalls Simi, 56, the president of JetBlue Technology Ventures, the airline’s in-house investment firm. “He said when he was 14 years old, he made a list of 100 things he wanted to accomplish in life. And they were like: Go to the moon, canoe the Amazon, sail across the Atlantic, all the things an adventurous 14-year-old boy might think of. “He had climbed Mt. Baldy, where I lived, and I thought that was cool. He told us we needed to come up with goals. I was 14. I couldn’t think of that many things. We had no money. My mom was disabled, a school teacher, and a single mom. We were on food stamps. Like, what was I going to dream of?” That was 1976, an Olympics year, and Simi was … [Read more...] about This Olympian Is Helping JetBlue Define The Future Of Travel And Hospitality
“They say that blood is seawater,” says Jim Briggs, standing at the wheel of his boat. While his wife, Cindy, secures the lines, Briggs assesses the craft’s readiness before heading out on the waters of Puget Sound. Are the pumps running? Are they pumping enough water, but not too much? Which way will the tide take the boat? As the engine warms up, it smooths out audibly, with water pumping through and out the exhaust from both sides. As Briggs knows, the process is not unlike the function of the heart. Sometimes, hearts work well. And sometimes, as in Briggs’ case, they don’t. A Declining Heart “It never once occurred to me that maybe I should slow down and take another course in life,” says Briggs. “Not once.” He was used to an active life: diving, skiing and boating with Cindy and working long days distributing wholesale plumbing supplies. When Briggs began having trouble breathing in 2001, he attributed it to allergies or … [Read more...] about A Man, A Boat and the Future of Cardiac Care

It’s the best of times and the worst of times for people whose job it is to teach others how to do their own jobs better, adapt to change, and get the hang of new technologies. Organizations are seeing greater need than ever for learning and development (or “L&D” for short), with spending on training climbing nearly 33% to $90.6 billion in the U.S. last year. At the same time, L&D professionals are rightly wondering whether they’ll soon be automated out of existence. After all, Google and YouTube are the de facto training departments for many employees: they’re ubiquitous, free, and packed with seemingly limitless content. But more sophisticated technology is on the rise, too. For example, AI can determine what someone needs to learn based on their performance data and career stage, then push content to them as they need it. This leaves many corporate trainers to stake their own value on curation, controlling the quality and consistency of … [Read more...] about Are Robo-Instructors The Future Of Corporate Training?
