What's Next! with Tiffani Bova

Sep 26, 2019

Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova.  

This week I have the pleasure of chatting with Jerry Colonna. Jerry is an American Venture Capitalist, Professional Coach, and the CEO and co-founder of which is an executive coaching and leadership development firm. For nearly 20 years he has used the knowledge gained as an investor, an executive, and a board member for more than 100 organizations to help entrepreneurs and others lead with humanity, resilience, and equanimity. Prior to his career as a coach, he was a partner with JPMorgan Partners (JPMP) the private equity arm of JP Morgan Chase. He joined JPMP from Flatiron Partners, which he launched in 1996 with Fred Wilson. Flatiron became one of the most successful, early-stage investment programs in the New York City area. I am thrilled to have Jerry Colonna on the What’s Next! Podcast.   

THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR… new leaders looking to be empowered, leaders and stakeholders looking for the best way to make a return on investment, and anyone seeking radical self-inquiry. 

TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… Why aren’t human beings predictable, relatively easy to program, and why is it that my input doesn’t give me the output that I expect? Jerry talks about the internal wish to ameliorate our own internal anxiety that leads us, instead of learning to work around fear of unpredictability and change. He takes us on a therapeutic journey to make space for innovation and the mess that creates it and addresses the radical self-inquiry that helps us unpack our belief systems and how we operate in relation to important things like money. 

WHAT  I  LOVE  MOST… Jerry’s breakdown of leadership styles and how our upbringing influences how we lead and ultimately succeed in one of the most open, honest and vulnerable interviews I have done.
