The Five at Five: Koio
1 Oct 2020
The Five at Five is a download of the best things to read, watch, shop, and get inspiration from – ready for the weekend. Each week, we’ll be bringing you selections from different tastemakers in our community, so you can delve into what’s keeping them entertained.
This week’s curator is Chris Wichert, co-founder of Koio, the luxury leather sneakers brand, combining modern design with fine material, and century-old techniques. Here’s what’s on his list.
Read: Bob Iger - The Ride of a Lifetime. This fantastic book by the CEO of Disney about leadership principles and how to effectively and compassionately manage employees.
Watch: The Last Dance. This literally saved me during quarantine. Very inspiring docuseries about Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls and their rise to fame.
Listen: Calm - Meditation. I start my days by meditating, so that I arrive at work in an emotionally calm state in order to be ready to take on whatever the day brings.
Shop: everdrop cleaning supplies. everdrop has revolutionized the household cleaning market with its innovative cleaning tabs. Regardless of whether it is an all-purpose, bathroom or glass cleaner, with everdrop customers can easily find the right tab for every area in their household. The tab is simply dissolved in water in a reusable everdrop spray bottle, made from recycled plastic. The tabs are packed in scrap paper, which can simply be recycled in the paper waste. In addition, the tabs are vegan and of course biodegradable.
Inspiration: Jeff Weiner, LinkedIn’s former CEO. He is an inspirational, and spiritual leader that shows what it means to lead with compassion while finding meaning in your work. He stresses the importance of being clear about your vision and dreaming big. I'd encourage everyone to listen to his podcast with Oprah.
