Beth Comstock: An Outsider Inside

Subscribe to the Outside In podcast:

As Beth Comstock sees it, most companies simply aren’t ready for the massive change happening in the world. After nearly three decades in senior leadership roles at GE and NBC Universal, she’s learned a lot from her successes (and failures) in navigating change and fostering creativity. It’s why she wrote her book, Imagine It Forward: Courage, Creativity, and the Power of Change. Comstock joins the podcast to share ideas from her book and why she describes herself as an “outsider inside.”

Listen to this episode to learn:

  • Why fear hinders your ability to change and innovate
  • From Hulu to green tech: stories about how to push for change and fight for the future
  • How to inspire innovators (even when they think they’re Steve Jobs)
  • What Saudi women and Brooklyn entrepreneurs taught her about innovation
  • Comstock’s GE legacy and where her journey (or, walkabout) will take her next
