917: Jane Frankel – Intentional Thinking for Lasting Success

Intention. Often spoken about, especially amongst more introspective and passion-driven business owners such as us, but how many of us really understand how intentions work? Today, I'm speaking with author and educator Jane Frankel to take a look at what lies underneath intentions. Jane shares key insights from her book, The Intentional Mindset, highlighting the profound impact of mindset on decision-making and success. We discuss the collaborative power of groups, the importance of understanding others' mindsets, and the transformative effect of trust in the employer-employee dynamic. This conversation is full of actionable strategies for self-employed individuals looking to align their intentions with decision-making prowess.

Jane Frankel is a business author, lifelong educator, workforce consultant, and successful entrepreneur. Today, she serves as the managing principal of The Art of Performance LLC and as an adjunct professor in economics at Temple University. Her new book is The Intentional Mindset: Data, Decisions, and Your Destiny. Jane’s passion is lifelong learning as she combines organizational design and learning concepts with relevant economic formulas to ensure highest performance and productivity.
