19. Acknowledging the Messiness of “People Business” with O’Brien McMahon

Our Guest Today:
O’Brien McMahon, SVP, Lockton Companies, Host of the Podcast People Business

In addition to hosting People Business, O’Brien is a Senior Vice President with Lockton, where he helps companies build Total Rewards programs (benefits, compensation, retirement, etc.) that align with and reinforce their mission, vision, and values.

Human nature is complex. Whether we are trying to improve our health, lead a project team, or guide a business into the future, our success or failure rides on how well we can harness the psychology, behavioral science, and elemental principles that drive individual and group performance. As a father, husband, business leader, salesperson, athlete, coach, mentor, and volunteer, O’Brien has seen these dynamics at play and is endlessly fascinated.

O’Brien’s goal with People Business is to dig into these principles and share them with the broader business community so that we can improve ourselves and our organizations. The better we get, the bigger the pie becomes, and the more we (and our people) can live rich, inspired lives.
