#264: Alan Mulally—Live From Summit
43:59

On today’s bonus episode, we’re taking you to San Antonio, Texas, where EntreLeadership Summit is in full swing. We start with Dave Ramsey as he introduces the theme of this year’s event and highlights a powerful and timeless leadership lesson straight from the Alamo. Next, Ramsey Solutions’ own Chris Hogan shares why it’s so important to get your team to think, act and care like you do. Better yet, he will tell you exactly how to get it done in your own business. And then the one and only Alan Mulally, former CEO of The Ford Motor Company, answers questions from our attendees. He covers everything from the secret to his success and how to create a high-performance culture to the profound impact his mother had on his approach to leadership. We end the episode with three-time Summit attendee Derek Evans, who explains the impact EntreLeadership has had on himself, his business and his team.  Today is just the start of this special week. Check out new episodes each day and join in the fun!

#263: Juliet Funt-Thriving in the Age of Overload
45:36

According to WhiteSpace at Work CEO Juliet Funt, oftentimes the key to accomplishing more is to momentarily do less. A strategic pause, what she calls “whitespace,” taken between activities to recalibrate and recuperate can help you reclaim lost productivity, creativity, time—and money. Juliet estimates that mindless busyness (such as pointless meetings, endless emails, redundant reports) costs businesses at least $1 million annually for every 50 employees. Her invaluable advice has helped teams at corporate giants like Nike, P&G, and Pepsi find greater balance and improve overall performance—and it can do the same for you. Join us to learn how to incorporate whitespace into your every day to reboot your exhausted brain and body.

28:07

If you’re constantly trying to find more hours in the day, New York Timesbest-selling author and leadership consultant Brian Moran might have just the solution: Plan to get more done in 12 weeks than most people get done in an entire year.

#256: Joseph Grenny—Hard Talks Made Easier
31:16

While the thought of having difficult conversations may fill most of us with dread, business social scientist Joseph Grenny says avoiding conflict is a big mistake. In fact, he says such conversations are absolutely crucial to an organization’s health and overall success. Sure, the stakes are high—and the tension may feel even higher—but ignoring incompetence or bad behavior only creates alienation and a culture of mistrust. Luckily, Joseph shares practical ways to defuse the situation and achieve a successful resolution. Also joining us is John Felkins, Director of All Access at Ramsey Solutions, with a few dos and don’ts for handling tough conversations.

#254: Chalene Johnson-The Power of Curiosity
34:13

If you use social media to market your business (and really, who doesn’t?), lifestyle and business expert Chalene Johnson says the best way to build your tribe is through something she calls “curiosity marketing.” The goal is to first position yourself as a trusted friend and give your customers just enough information to pique their interest and get them asking questions. That curiosity allows you to engage your customers in an authentic conversation, which then helps create a relationship that, with any luck, leads to a sale. Tune in to find out Chalene’s three golden rules of doing it well. Also joining us are Revelation Real Estate owners Chuck and Angela Fazio, who credit the EntreLeadership Master Series for helping them completely transform their culture and reach $1.4 billion in sales.

#247: Bryan and Shannon Miles—Virtual Culture
40:08

Bryan and Shannon Miles, cofounders of the wildly successful virtual support provider BELAY, have done what many would think impossible: create a unified and thriving culture among a team made up entirely of telecommuters. Turns out you don’t need to work in the same building—or in some cases, even the same state—to foster excellent communication, unparalleled accountability, and good morale. In lieu of a corporate office, Bryan and Shannon have decided to invest in their team instead of infrastructure. If eight years in business, 60 employees, and 500 contractors are any indication, it looks like they’re doing something really right. Tune in to find out how to do the same in your organization, virtual or not. Also joining us is All Access member Renee Daggett, president of AdminBooks, to highlight what you need to know now about the new tax bill.

43:26

When it comes to shaping a healthy and vibrant culture, Patty McCord—co-creator of the now viral (think over 12 million views) Netflix Culture deck—says most companies are doing it all wrong. In fact, she contends that commonly held “best practices” like performance reviews or limits on vacation time are surprisingly ineffective when it comes to keeping people motivated and engaged at work. Instead, during her 14-year tenure at Netflix, Patty found that people are far more productive when guided by their own logic and common sense rather than antiquated HR policies. Join us to find out how to create a culture of high performance and profitability in your own business, stat.

Ever since taking over his family’s business at age 25, Charles Koch has been guided by one singular mantra: Success is one of the biggest enemies of success. Those powerful words have inspired the chairman and CEO of Koch Industries to keep pushing, keep experimenting, keep improving—a state he likes to call “continual transformation.” Koch’s ironclad belief that there is always a way to do it better has helped grow the company into a $100 billion enterprise—one that prides itself, first and foremost, on creating unparalleled value for its customers. And that’s something any business, regardless of size, can aspire to. Join us to hear Charles explain why complacency is never an option and what you need to do to outpace your competition.

56:17

We all know the creative process is unpredictable at best, but if you ask best-selling author Todd Henry, the one thing you can control every single time is the way you are guiding that work as the leader. Not only is your role more influential than you may realize, says the international speaker on leadership and creativity, but the stakes are about as high as they get.

58:37

After years spent traveling the globe working with top CEOs, world-renowned leadership coach and best-selling author Dr. Marshall Goldsmith has discovered a universal truth: We all make mistakes. And oftentimes, even the seemingly inconsequential ones (for instance, not saying thank you enough) can undermine the most skilled, charismatic leaders. Luckily, there are four behaviors you can adopt right now that can help put you on a more successful—and likely more profitable—leadership path. And though Marshall’s advice is simple and straightforward, don’t expect real change to come overnight without some major commitment and determination on your end.

#240: Clay Scroggins—How to Build Your Influence
52:06

One of the most common misconceptions we all have about leadership is that it’s the same thing as authority, according to lead pastor of North Point Community Church, Clay Scroggins. During his 10-year tenure at the Alpharetta, GA-based megachurch, Clay has learned that nothing could be further from the truth. Instead, he has come to the conclusion that the real currency of leadership has nothing at all to do with being in charge but rather with influence. And that’s really great news, because every single one of us has the ability to be influential. The key is first figuring out who you are. Join us to find out where to go from there so you can start leading today.

#239: Top 10 EntreLeadership Podcasts of 2017
01:43:02

 

If you could only use one word to describe 2017, it would have to be transformation. From politics to technology to the job market, there have been a lot changes this year.

Here at the EntreLeadership Podcast headquarters, that’s incredible news. We LOVE change—especially when it comes to helping you transform yourself and your business. It’s like former British prime minister Winston Churchill once said, “To improve is to change, so to be perfect is to have changed often.”

With that in mind, 2017 was a banner year. Our guests focused on helping you get better in many areas. To make the most of their sage advice, we’re closing out the year with clips from some of our favorite conversations. They were selected based on number of downloads and feedback from our listeners. We hope you enjoy them! Have a wonderful new year!

Seth Godin—Change Your Mind, Change Your Life

The Rundown: Marketing master Seth Godin returns to the podcast for an in-depth conversation on change, from why we avoid it to how you can make it the number one weapon in your arsenal.

Top Takeaway: Change creates an environment where you are not an expert. So if you don’t like the feeling of incompetence, you’ll fight the feeling of change. Getting comfortable with the feeling of being incompetent is one of the most important things you can do.  

Favorite Quote: “The only way to get better is to do things differently.”

Chris Baréz-Brown—Escaping a Life on Autopilot

The Rundown: It’s been estimated that 50% of our time awake is spent on autopilot, leading to a life of missed moments and even less enjoyment at home and at work. Chris Baréz-Brown is on a mission to help us escape that routine. The inspirational speaker, author and business beatnik joins us to share his tips on how to feel more conscious, joyful and inspired, and how to avoid missing what matters most.

Top Takeaway: Want to break the cycle of running a hundred miles per hour all day—spending all of your time putting out fires? Take a walk with someone for 7.5 minutes and talk it up while they listen. It gives you better perspective, insight, ideas and the ability to think differently about the future.

Favorite Quote: “You can’t be a good creative leader unless you are a conscious leader.”

Jocko Willink—The Discipline Advantage

The Rundown: A favorite of our listeners, retired Navy SEAL commander Jocko Willink returns to our Top 10 list for the second year in a row. Once upon a time, Willink traveled the world on military missions. These days, as a best-selling author and leadership coach, his work still takes him around the globe but to a much different battlefield. Jocko joins us to share his thoughts on developing leaders.

Top Takeaway: If you want someone to step up into a leadership position, put them in one that’s slightly out of their comfort zone and watch them rise to the occasion. This idea doesn’t just work with your high-potential people; it works with your problem children who aren’t performing or have a negative attitude.

Favorite Quote: “If you’re the easy button for your team, they’re going to get trained and conditioned to use that easy button. They are going to come to you for everything.”

Jon Taffer—Rescue Your Business

The Rundown: When it comes to a struggling business, we’ve heard pretty much every excuse in the book: a terrible economy, a bad location, an overcrowded marketplace. But Jon Taffer isn’t buying it. The no-holds-barred star of Spike TV’s hit show Bar Rescue explains why excuses are the common denominator of all failing businesses—and exactly how to kick them to the curb for good.  

Top Takeaway: You don’t have to spend a fortune with traditional advertising to market your business. All it takes is organization, high standards, an engaged owner and some common sense.

Favorite Quote: “Every failing business has a failing owner.”

David Allen—Getting Strategic With Personal Productivity

The Rundown: If “overwhelmed” seems like the best way to describe your day, listen in. Because the leading authority on personal organization, David Allen, joins us to discuss how to get things done. This best-selling author shares new insights on personal productivity and how you can become more effective, organized and focused, plus how you can plan projects like a pro.

Top Takeaway: You need to get things off your mind so you are free to focus on what you want to focus on. Your head is for developing ideas, not for holding them. Give yourself time to stop and reflect on how you’re doing. Build in a thinking process. Take two hours a week to step back and check the inventory of what’s going on.  

Favorite Quote: “Your head is a crappy office to hold ideas.”

Chris Voss—Negotiating as if Your Life Depended on It

The Rundown: Former FBI international hostage negotiator Chris Voss joins us to share effective tactics and strategies you can use to become more persuasive in both your professional and personal life and how to solve business communication challenges with these hostage-negotiation techniques.

Top Takeaway: When negotiating, always use the “mirror technique.” Repeating the last three words someone said creates a connection and gives you permission to persuade.

Favorite Quote: “You become the smartest person in the room when you start tapping into other people’s brains.”

Bob Beaudine—The Power of Relationships

The Rundown: Remember the days of going to local events, handing out cards, and hoping to grab some new business? Bob Beaudine believes this kind of networking is not viable anymore because you already know everyone you need to—and it starts with your friends. As CEO of Eastman & Beaudine, Bob manages the nation’s leading executive-search firm in sports/entertainment.

Top Takeaway: Networking is not working for Americans any longer. Your most powerful network is created by simply by interacting with people in your daily life. Focus on doing business with your friends and the rest will take care of itself.

Favorite Quote: “You already know everyone you need to know.”

Ryan Holiday—Battling Ego

The Rundown: Ego is an enemy we all face—wrecking careers, impeding learning, and running companies into the ground. Entrepreneur and best-selling author Ryan Holiday joins us to discuss how to keep your ego in check in this age of “It’s all about me.” This is a must-listen for anyone who wants to succeed.

Top Takeaway:  History is made by individuals who fought their egos at every turn, who avoided the spotlight, and who put their higher goals above their desire for recognition.

Favorite Quote: “Sometimes when everyone tells you you’re wrong, they’re wrong. But often when everyone says, ‘Hey that’s a really bad idea,’ they’re right and you should listen to them. Ego can make you lose the ability to discern good advice from bad advice.”

Simon Sinek—The Number One Question for Success

The Rundown: What’s the one question you need to ask that will propel you, your business and your team to greater heights? Leadership expert and best-selling author Simon Sinek stops by to give the answer, plus he shares lots of additional leadership and business tips.

Top Takeaway: Your why has to be front and center. It’s the thing that inspires people. It’s the thing that will give them their marching orders on how to build the business. As soon as your team knows the why, they’ll instinctively know what decision to make. That’s called scale.

Favorite Quote: “People rise to the occasion. Let them make decisions. Let them own it.”

Mel Robbins—5 Seconds to a Better Life and Business

The Rundown: What if you could become more confident, stop procrastinating, beat fear and uncertainty, story worrying, and feel happier? Mel Robbins says you can change in five seconds, and she’s sharing the tools you need to get started transforming your life.  

Top Takeaway: You can do tricks to outsmart your mind. The moment you have an instinct you should do something but you start to hesitate or feel afraid, use the five-second rule. Start counting backwards 5-4-3-2-1 and then move.  

Favorite Quote: “If you let your emotions kick in as someone is trying to undercut you, you’re not going to be powerful.”

Donald Miller—How to Double Your Revenue

The Rundown: Donald Miller, best-selling author and CEO of StoryBrand, knows your most powerful marketing tool has nothing to do with a big budget. The most effective marketing comes down to one simple thing: the right words.

Top Takeaway: We intuitively know we have to simplify our message. People aren’t as smart as we are in our field of expertise. Most of us are talking over their heads. We have to speak to their actual needs.

Favorite Quote: “The problem is you’re so smart that you have to get a dumb guy to look at your website.”

#238: Kristen Hadeed—Learning to Lead
55:52

After accidentally starting a business (tune in for the whole story!) as a college undergrad, Student Maid founder and CEO Kristen Hadeed has learned a lot about leadership from her mistakes along the way—and you can too. But one of the most important things she’s learned is that no matter what business you’re in, everyone wants the same thing: to feel valued. To that end, she has become passionate about not only growing herself as a leader but also helping her team do the same. Her company may be in the cleaning business, but she likes to say she’s in the business of making her team members better people. You can do the same thing in your own business and if you ask Kristen, the upside is endless. Join us to learn how it’s done.

In part two of our interview, Dr. Michael Gervais dives deeper into the fascinating connection between our mental state and our performance—or as he calls it, “our thinking and our doing.” While it is possible to transform an anxious, unorganized mind into one that is highly disciplined and focused on the moment, there isn’t a quick fix or an easy hack. It’s takes commitment, relentless energy, and a willingness to get way outside your comfort zone.

That advice is as true today as it was when she helped Steve Jobs launch the original Macintosh once upon a time. But, the cofounder and president of Cunningham Collective warns, that’s pretty much impossible to do without first decoding your company’s DNA. It’s that information—who you are and why you matter—that helps you position your brand successfully in the marketplace. Easier said than done? Luckily, Andy has a six-step checklist to simplify the entire process. Tune in to find out how it works.

In order to effectively manage ever-changing opportunities and growth—not to mention unforeseen problems—the best strategy is to routinely and systematically raise up new leaders to actually create a surplus of them. Hope is not an adequate strategy for building a business, Mark explains, but creating a leadership culture is. We couldn’t agree more. Tune in to learn Mark’s five-step process for creating a leadership culture in your own organization. Also joining us is Dan Ralphs, who holds the unique position of Dream Manager at Infusionsoft.
