The Right Confidence
Introducing Dr. Hal Movius and Movius Consulting
Negotiation is a daily reality in most of our lives. Whether it is a big-time business deal or bargaining with a five-year-old over bedtime, negotiation is a fact of life. There is a pervasive belief that some of us are better negotiators based on personality and confidence but according to today’s guest this is just not the case.
Dr. Hal Movius is an applied psychologist, negotiation and leadership coach, consultant, trainer, author, and researcher in the field of negotiation. For five years, he taught a course on negotiation at Harvard University and he currently consults Fortune 500 leaders. Hal’s focus is on how leaders and teams can protect relationships and be collaborative and creative when they are under intense competitive pressures on in situations where the one side has more power than the other.

The Good News
Introducing Maren Keeley and Conscious Company Media
Have you ever ended an experience of watching or reading the news only to feel more depressed than informed? There is no shortage of content out there (especially on the internet) that would leave a person feeling pretty down on the world. We don’t want to reject reality, but we all know there are also a lot of great stories out there going underreported. This week’s Boiling Point guest felt the same way about businesses doing positive things in the world and did something about it.
Maren Keeley is the co-founder of Conscious Company Media, a content provider, which shares inspiring stories about business as a force for good. Maren knew that businesses that consciously account for all stakeholders are great vehicles to drive positive change. She also knew that these types of positive businesses didn’t have enough of a voice. So, not only does Conscious Company publishes a gorgeous magazine, but now are providing content across multiple platforms, offering webinars, publishing research papers, and are hosting an in-person conference later this year.

Give Back Pack
Introducing Scot Tatelman and State Bags
It is truly great when you can buy a fantastic product for yourself and at the same time give a fantastic product to someone in need. This is exactly what happens when you purchase a bag from this week’s Boiling Point guest.
Scot Tatelman and his wife Jacqueline are the co-founders of State Bags, which is a one for one bag brand based out of New York City. Similar to companies like TOMS Shoes, for every State bag that is sold, State donates a fully stocked backpack to an American child in need; truly a win-win.
But this is not even close to where the giving stops for this philanthropic couple. In fact, the whole idea for State bags came from another cause that is close to their heart. Scot and Jacqueline have a passion for providing summer camp to under privileged, inner-city children. They noticed that when campers were settling in to camp, many would bring their items in plastic garbage bags, an observation that while truly heartbreaking, provided the inspiration for State Bags.
But this isn’t even where the story ends, so check out this episode of the Boiling Point to see how business can truly make positive impact.
