Inspiring New Leaders In STEM with Sid Verma [Podcast]

I’m constantly trying to find new ways to encourage and support my children as they discover who they are and who they want to be; on their life journey as they learn, grow and develop. My guest this week is a font of wisdom when it comes to developing our youth and inspiring new leaders in STEM.

Sid Verma mentors business people of all ages and runs a startup community of health entrepreneurs, but he also founded with his wife a not-for-profit organisation called ‘BrainSTEM‘, which works to raise the next generation of STEM leaders.

In episode 209 of Be The Drop, Sid discusses his belief that we are outcomes of the environment we are in, and reveals tools we can use to change our outcomes. He provides tips for finding a mentor and shares how they’re inspiring new leaders in STEM.

In this episode on inspiring new leaders, you will learn about:

  • How BrainSTEM turns world-dominating ideas into empowerment & action
  • A bit about the rock, plant and animal states of mind

  • Why it’s important to encourage children to feel alright about the idea of failure
  • The value of mentoring for people of all ages and experience
  • About the concept of the “average of 5” and how to surround yourself with good people

“Everyone must have a world-domination idea.”
