Barry O’Reilly (@barryoreilly) is a business advisor, entrepreneur, and author who works to help people invent the future instead of fearing it.
Barry has pioneered the intersection of business model innovation, product development, organizational design, and culture transformation to help leaders and organizations innovate at scale. Barry is the founder of ExecCamp where he helps turn executives into entrepreneurs, and he’s worked with leading organizations all over the world including ThoughtWorks, The World Health Organization, and the leadership teams of many of the Fortune 500.
Barry has published two books: Unlearn, and Lean Enterprise. He serves on the faculty of Singularity University, and is a frequent contributor to The Economist, Harvard Business Review, and MIT Sloan Management review among others.
We start by dropping right into a powerful moment in Barry’s career as an entrepreneur, and go on to cover everything from deliberate practice, to culture change within an organization, to how thinking we’re right gets in the way of our own growth (and what to actually do about it). I will be your guinea pig for Barry to demonstrate some of his unlearning techniques
It is my pleasure to welcome him to the show, so without further adieu, please enjoy this wide-ranging conversation with Barry O’Reilly.
