TPA COO Tyler Bowyer on the Current State of the Red Wave
"This morning breaking Leonard Leo has received a huge infusion of cash and sort of this corporate transfer. They basically there was the Republican mega donor that just donated his entire company to lend her Leo. So 1.6 billion, hopefully that money will go into this new war chest or what we're talking about, these candidates in winnable races across the country. And Tyler, you've gone through the polling, you've got Trafalgar out there now. You've been on the ground in three states and one week with these rallies with governor desantis. And I really want Tyler if you can walk us through some of the stuff that we're seeing with this polling and then also the fact that we now that that Republicans have this war chest, are they going to be able to use that to get up on the air and to start propagating the air game and the airwaves for all of this. Tyler, what should Republicans be looking at both from an inside standpoint of the party and then outside where the activist when you're one of the people that just write in a freedom and Charlie Kirk dot com? No, Jack, I mean, you and I have seen the energy that exists and then the energy is huge. And that's what we saw at these last three events in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Arizona that the base is they're on point. They're excited to get out and vote. And vote hard against Joe Biden's policies. But for these exciting candidates, I mean, look, Kerry, JD Vance, and Doug mastriano are three examples of this new right concept, right? Which is we have conservatives who are actually willing to get out there and fight. And so you're seeing these polling come out now. And the polls are showing that all three of these guys are within 5 points or they're up even in polls, which is a great sign because the polling isn't taking into account the separation and turnout that we're going to see out of our base versus the Democrat base because
Lewis and Como: 2 Christian Apologists in the Heart of Academia
"Folks, I continue my conversation with James como, COO, professor emeritus of rhetoric and public communication, founding member of the New York C. S. Lewis society, his books include many essays, long and short fiction, poetry, mystical peril ander, which I'm holding in my hand is his 5th book on C. S. Lewis, what does that tell you? It tells you that there are four other books on C. S. Lewis. One is called C. S. Lewis at the breakfast table. One is called branches to heaven, one is called why I believe in Narnia, and then more recently C. S. Lewis a very short introduction. So you were just saying that in the 60s, you read this Jeffrey Hart article in national review, and you bump into C. S. Lewis, but you bump into him, he was professionally an academic who wrote literary criticism. So this is not the popular Lewis that we know the author of all these popular books. No. But what struck me in Hart's article, was that this man is at the Pinnacle of his profession. He is the leading medievalist. In English literature, undisputably that. Correct. And a Christian apologist at the same time. Right there in the heart of academia. That's where I am. And I'm a believing Christian in the heart of an unbelieving, very hostile academia. I have to find out more about this guy. Which he struck me and has always struck me as a very, very brave man, which of course he was in World War I. You know, he saw combat in the trenches in World War I. But very brave. He takes on the hardest questions with the hardest audiences. Debate anybody, right? Route the field. And yet is this most respected English

"Joy Reid believes in suppressing the truth She's a hater And worse And she and her friend what is a Toby Tiffany and others and so forth It is there in my view who are blood on their hands It is people like that will never allow this country to come together Ever And it's because big corporations and these corporatists the CEOs and COOs and CFOs and these board members they want this They want the ratings increased If they can get them But if not they figure they're covering their asses They're protecting themselves because we don't spend enough time going into their damn shareholder meetings raising hell Whereas the other side does They do And they trash mouth and they smear and they slander and they libel We pretty much scratch our heads and complain to each other
Corporations Now Bow Down to the Marxists
"It's shocking And more and more of the corporations let me tell you a little secret Like so many of you I used to defend these corporations because all they are Are legal creations that allow individuals to operate freely To build things to create things to produce things to develop things to sell things to purchase things That's all And aggregate or a collection of individuals who invest who make What's wrong with that And of course there would be attacked because of their belief in capitalism But not anymore Not anymore These corporations are now run by corporatists Their CEOs their COOs their CFOs their board members These are corporatists Many of them come out of the same colleges and universities and graduate schools as the other American marxists Many of them are just bowing to the mob because they think it's good for business But either way it's corrupt When you look back at the John D. Rockefeller's when you look back at the vanderbilts when you look back at the great the great capitalist the industrialists Of course you're now supposed to hate them
CNN's April Ryan Asks Pete Buttigieg to Address the 'Racism' Built Into Our Roadways
"So back to Tucker Carlson last night. So April Ryan is, you know, cooing and ooing and I over the transportation secretary Pete Buttigieg. Which I always love how so many people point out the former mayor of South Bend Indiana is now the transportation secretary. And of course he's weighing in on COVID. He's weighing in on racism. He's weighing in on everything except transportation. Now, having said that, I guess roads and bridges are ostensibly under his purview. So April Ryan asks Pete Buttigieg about the racist roads and bridges we've built. And he answers it answers in the affirmative. Now, I understand there is allegedly a history. I've seen the narrative that some of the planners who were building roads and bridges did some pretty bad things allegedly about where they placed the highways, but I had never heard that the bridges were intentionally built low so that bus loads of blacks and Puerto Ricans couldn't go to the beach. I'm not kidding you. This is so crazy. And well, let's play the exchange before we play Tucker, Yuri. Let's play April Ryan, asking the question that transportation that roads and bridges in America are racist. Here we go. Here's the answer from the transportation secretary when April Ryan. We actually had to put the question first. Do we have April's question? It's all out of order here for some reason. Let me get this. I guess we have a question on tape guys or no. All right, we'll get the question because the question is crazier than the answer. So she asks him, what about the inherent red I'm paraphrasing here about the racism that was inherent in the roads and the bridges that were built. Here's Pete Buttigieg's answer. As to where we target those dollars, you know, I'm still surprised that some people were surprised when I pointed to the fact that if a highway was built for the purpose of dividing a light in the black neighborhood or if an underpass was constructed such that a bus carrying mostly black and Puerto Rican kids to a beach or it would have been in New York was designed too low for it to pass by. But that obviously reflects racism that went into those design choices. I don't think we have anything to lose by confronting that simple reality. And I think we have everything to gain by acknowledging it and then dealing with it, which is why the reconnecting communities that $1 billion is something we want to get to work right away, putting the work. Well, I know how you fix it. You've got to tear the bridges down. You obviously have to take the bridges down. If Jefferson, if a statue of a confederate soldier needs to be torn down, you obviously have to tear down all the bridges that were built too low so that busloads of black and Puerto Rican kids couldn't go to Jones beach. Of course you gotta take the bridges down. And you probably ought to tear up the

He didn't he didn't have actually rule that you not allowed to work at more than two business. Units within coke as a consultant. And then you had to leave okay. So i was doing some work with their pipeline group and had a couple of coq employees and we were sitting in the cafeteria having launched.

Leading Effectively Under Pressure
"David, thanks for joining us today. Kwame is an absolute pleasure, my friend. Yeah, it's a pleasure to have you. I've been excited about this since we first spoke. So let's jump into it. How about you tell us a little bit about yourself and what you do? Cool. Well, my name is doctor David arrington. I have over 15 years of leadership development experience. I have 20 plus years actually of leadership experience. I am the COO of errington coaching. I am the author of promotable and most recently I have created leading under pressure, which is a an executive leadership development community. Fantastic. I love it. And so leading under pressure. David white, why do you think it's important for us to understand how to do that? Well, 2020, I could just stop there, right? You know, 2020. But if you notice the leadership landscape has changed fundamentally and indelibly, it's not going back to the way it was. And we have in this one year, these 12 months or so, leaders have been put through a lot of changes. And what I've noticed working with leaders in a number of different industries is that they weren't ready, right? The changes that happened moving from in person to remote handling remote teams still being able to adapt on the fly as other leadership needs changed. There was definitely a gap for a lot of leaders. So right now, we're going to see change continue and it's going to speed up and most leaders again still aren't ready. So what I've done is, I think that this is the time for leaders to learn how to lead under pressure. You can argue that leaders are always leading under pressure. But this is one of those moments that is a standout moment where the pressure is so it's so heavy. The pressure is so great right now that people can actually step back and say yes, I need to step up what I'm doing as a leader.

Bitcoin lifted its head above fifty thousand where it remained until about an hour ago at the time of this recording. Some have called this last month. The short squeeze rally referring to the fact that it was started as bitcoin held above thirty thousand dollars in the face of numerous short positions that forced those shortsellers to buy more at higher prices to keep their positions open to being a boom short-squeeze. Whatever the cause over the last thirty days. Bitcoin is up around forty six percent and bitcoins peak in the last twenty four hours around fifty thousand two hundred three month high.

Matthew did the co founder and coo at stack funds said that this rally unlike some of our previous frenetic moves up hasn't been driven by derivatives bets but instead by spot buying quote looking at funding in the options market. This rally still appears to be spot driven. Our expectation is that this break of psychological resistance will likely result in a rotation back to bitcoin in the coming weeks with the next target of sixty thousand dollars. This idea of a lot of spot buying driving things seems to be affirmed by data from into the block which shows that institutions in. Wales appear to have been accumulating alongside price growth.

What was it like pushing a chair. Because it's very different than say pushing a stroller. Like i'm i'm a mother. I have a two year old and running with her a stroller. Like i'm i'm very weak. I do my best. But like i hit a slight incline and on my coo. Get out and walk. Andy like it. It's hard and so for you brenton. Obviously you're you're in incredible shape with a twelve hour iron man but tell me about the adjustment to running with the and then kyle. I wanna hear about from your perspective. What it was like to By the way. I'd rather push kyle than my three year. Old strollers are not. They're not like pushing. Kyle like we're in this now. But the original chair we had was basically an adult jogger or an adult stroller so is meant to hold somebody up to two hundred fifty pounds and so was very similar. My arms were kind of locked out there long and my back would get really sore in my last. I just. I would be really sore. Because i've lost that arm swing and you know we eventually got better equipment but even then you don't get the extra stuff that a normal runner does again. You're not swinging your arms. You don't have that extra motion so you're you're kind of just stuck right behind the chair and then of course there's the just the sheer weight of it There are parts. that are easier and also scarier. I mean the first ten k we did was downhill ten k And it's at the. Time was the fastest that i had ever run a ten k because it was all i could do to hang onto that chair as kyle's wait in the three wheels pulled me straight down at the bottom of the

Yeah it doesn't feel that way. No i jumped. When i when i had that call with you. It was like what i wanna do. Okay we can do that. Yeah yeah basically right Probably already drivers.

So there's a lot. The shepherd has a lot of different things. So i just try to direct them the right place if the right fit and then besides that i do see oh training and i run people's quarterly meetings and dismantle planning and i do strategy sessions with companies and kind of handpicked.

"Don't think like that like you can kind of imagine which world you're in and they're like ed is do it. It's your in this world but people who enter your company. They don't know where you wanna go. So having a really clear vision and then strategy to execute on that vision is really important and then putting those people putting at least those pieces into place like your your marketing channels. You're hires at least defining what a department is our job. Descriptions are you kind of have to materialize this company. i And really articulate where it is that you want this thing to go and then hire people that are appropriate for those seats. The do better than you would have done in it and then you have the coach them along to do that. Like you can't just hire like peace out. May you have to be there dream. I know right. But it doesn't work that way because everything crumbles See at the be there to organize it and then to make sure that there is accountability. That the the people you hire have leadership skills so they can lead other people and that they can kinda pass you know you can pass the baton they can carry. It said that some time. And that's really hard to articulate but putting together what you want your vision planning and then your strategy is really important and then you have to find the right person. Take over your seat So for us matt our. Coo was project manager department chair so he ran all of our rehabs all of our new bills and had people underneath him so he chose him because we trusted and we worked with them for years. Who's actually are agent before we ever employed him directly and he did a really good job of managing that department and affecting the bottom line. Which is what we need as a ceo. Coo you gotta show me. You can move. You can move the bottom line number and you can keep it together so he he over the course of a year or so. We saw him develop out that that Department himself improve improve numbers improve efficiencies and he wanted to put his hat in the ring for the coo so like less interview very cool yep so then we hired him in than i trained him for a year and then i left in two thousand twenty. So you're not involved in the day today but nick still is zack. So how much. How involved is he on day to day so he he runs the acquisition department right now on top of being the ceo. So he kind of its. He's kind of ask slated. they're a little bit. That acquisition department will be good. And then it'll require more more. Attention is is like you know this funny. That's that's our department definitely has had the most churn but now people that are in there the average Average length that people have been with us. There's about a year which is a long time for sills. Yeah for sale is pretty good little. I think it's just about a year is the average between those people so he just hired somebody that i think can ascend into the department chair roles and then he can be more just maceo seat. But that's the one seat that he gets pulled into. Quite a bit is tough. That's the manny salespeople was wanna call yesterday with fisher and chryssa richter authentic. The funnel all their challenge. Yeah and um christmas asked me. That was the most difficult things. I it's always. It's been the same in every company.

Doctors and chief operating officers at ten to be wants one job or when experience. You've had that means the most you. I started wanting to be a doctor from the time i was a little girl so it really is about for patients. But i really have shifted. After i was in practice for about ten years. i'm orthopedic surgeon. And i moved to become a fulltime hospital executive. Because i thought i'd be able to have more impact in so now is the chief operating officer of big hospital system. My job is really to make sure that the business runs so that our doctors nurses have everything that they need to do what they do best which is care for our patients so in some ways come full circle from where i thought i was going to be when i was a little girl. How did you know that you wanted to be in medicine when you were a kid. You know carly i have no real good answer for that it just from the time. It was a little girl. I thought that would be a great job. Every kid knows what a doctor is. They're going to help you get better and i was say my parents were always very encouraging. I don't have doctors in my family. But i had that as a little girl and i stuck with it when reading about you. What stood out is that you have one of the things that many that stood out was that early on in your residency twins. And i know everything there to know about med school residencies. Because i've seen grace anatomy. So i am very very educated on your fields. I still watch it. So i feel like i'm right in there but i want you to take us back to to that time. What was that time like for you. Especially at a time when there were very few women in orthopedics.

It was unusual then and i chose a field that had very few women in it.
Is Tunisia an Arab Spring Success Story?
"When we talk about cooed unquote the arab spring. We tend to refer to tunisia as the one success to come out of it. Be you've been reporting from tunis for quite some time now do. Do the people think it was a success. You get really mixed answers when it. When i've asked that question and i think many people these days say no just looking at sort of day to day living situation the lack of jobs the high prices just the inability to satisfy basic needs and to see opportunity in the future. Those were the main buckets of complaints and where people say that the revolution democracy really fell short clear. Parker is a freelance journalist based in tunis tunisia. But people at the same time are proud of the freedoms that they've acquired specifically civil society is flourishing. There's freedom of expression although it faces some threats but you know a lot of civil liberties especially compared to other countries in the region and a lot of protest movement and right to protest. So there's a sense that at least they have this freedom and that's kind of the main gain of the revolution

"Loreto Hospital executive at the center of a vaccine controversy, has now resigned. The board of trustees unanimously accepted Doctor and ASHA Meds resignation. Lecture. Black Club.

In response, the city stopped giving Loreto doses of the vaccine. The board says It'll continue to investigate.
Chicago Loretto Hospital doctor embroiled in vaccine controversy resigns
"A hospital official has resigned after covid. Nineteen vaccines were improperly distributed at trump tower in chicago. Coo and cfo. Anoc med submitted the resignation at loretto hospital just days after the city's health department announced it will withhold additional first doses from the hospital loretto. Ceo said he authorized a vaccine clinic at the trump hotel for hospitality. Workers saying he thought they were a central workers off mid owns a condo at trump tower worth two million dollars
Vaccine withheld from hospital that gave Trump Tower shots
"Have to move on to this bombshell story. That blocked club first reported this week. Loretto hospital in austin before we get into all the impropriety here today. They said that they are reprimanding their coo and their ceo for these improper. Vaccinations kelly bauer. Do we know what reprimand means. In this case. I have to to politicians who are on the hospital's board of directors. And all they would say at the time was that we put out this statement. We're not going to elaborate on rep. What it means to reprimand so we are still trying to figure that out and see what could be happening to the ceo coo. Okay so the first story that you published here was that they the coo. Dr notion med has an apartment in trump tower about two and a half million dollar apartment and the hospital. That has these vaccinations for folks on the west side. Improperly administered vaccinations to trump tower employees. Is there any evidence of some sort of trade-off or exchange or how how this came to be well. We spoke to leto hospital and their ceo. George miller says that it was actually him who helped set up this event but what we found is that right or workers at trump tower told residents that it was loretto hospital that reached out to them now. Loretto hospital is saying that its workers who reached out to them. So it's very much a. He said she said situation. But the city's department said they are looking into it and investigating why these ineligible workers were able to get shots. Before other people and also ineligible were cook. County judges and guest preach judge that also got vaccinated. And there's some different answers onto how that happened. Even though those were not allowed in the current phase as well amanda vindicated. You look at the board of this hospital. As kelly mentioned there's to state lawmakers that sit on the board There's a state lawmaker. Camille lilly that works for the hospital. This is a hospital that gets tens of millions of dollars in reimbursements from the state's medicaid program. Is there a conflict of interest. Here that there can be this much clout on a hospital board. I mean those are certainly questions that were all asking. What sort of favors might members of the war getting terms of the vaccines employment whatnot. We're we're not saying that there is merely that these are the questions to ask in. This gets to something that we've talked about a lot as there's been a lot of corruption of course in springfield and that is that there are really lax economic interests statements conflict of interest rules in then again to place. Where have devil's advocate there. There are those who say it. Is it positive when you have. For example he state legislator employed by hospital because that brings along a expertise. This is a citizen legislature. It is technically a part time job and the reason for that being was because you want to bring in farmers dentists doctors people with all different sorts of knowledge so there are certainly two sides to that point but given kelly's reporting the trump tower. I think that's what it is. It's just it's it's the who got it because these are. There's a lot to look into here and kelly bars. You mentioned that the city's health department is investigating. They've halted vaccinations to that hospital. What do you anticipate. They're going to uncover in their probe. Well we've heard from multiple sources and people questioning why workers at trump tower who are able to get vaccinated and not other hotel workers now. We've also seen that. The ceo's church was able to get vaccinated. This doctor arwady. The head of the city's health department said today that they are investigating they will not be sending doses to loretto hospital until they are confident. Those doses are going to be appropriately.

He's not going to be supportive of the success that you create. It's also going to be supporting you able to get to the next level so when you think about the loneliness you experience in your life. What is the cause of. What do you find that you need to you. Need someone to check in with you on a regular basis to you. need someone to allow you to bent. Do you need someone to celebrate you.

So they facial surround yourself with epic people and recognize when you're in need of different people and sometimes it comes down to really having some really structured compensations and how to set up because people are going to nor that you need them on their team until you tell them so i would. I would just suggest distinct about who need on your team and who they base would have been that. You need to develop contain regards to support. Do you need to develop your friends network.

I feel so so if you recognize that you've been experiencing longest recently. I'd love you to do activity because lila is an emotional response to feeling like you need extra connection so that connection could be everything from a relationship right romantic pot off right through having friends to reach out and chat with so support yourself by creating that support network and if you have a little critic coming in saying no one's going to want to be friends with me all no one's gonna want to have to hang out with me. La off because they guarantee you this other people feeling exactly the way that you do and you just want to find them seem to have those conversations and just ask them out for coffee organized times to catch up and that's when you actually strengthen those relationships and the times that i've done that is only ever been an incredible experience so
Bolivia's Former Interim President Jeanine Áñez Arrested for Sedition
"Our ultra Bolivia now where there seems to be a settling of political scores. The country's former interim president, Janine and yes, has been arrested on sedition charges. They're linked to her alleged involvement in a reported coo of 2019 against the former president Evo Morales. His ally, Louise outside is now in power, and Mr Morales is demanding punishment. The alleged coup plotters, Janina Anya says she's the victim of political persecution will have to try to find out more about what's happening and go to the capital. A pause. Enjoying Monica Makiko Monica. Just tell us first about the arrests, not just of Janine. Yes, but others as well. Yes. Lisa, In fact that there are two former minister off Giannini, Anya's government that has also being detained. There are other arrest orders that are taking place right now. We don't know how many there will be arrested because this is not just one case. There are many cases and basically they're being arrest because because because they said that they have conspired against the Constitution. The charges are terrorism and sedition. This is said to have taken place in 2000 and 19. Why are the arrests happening now? We basically don't know what the government have decided to do this. This is the this is in fact, something that happened in 2019 and then beat remind you, Lise. That doing the time that Giannini Anya's came into power, she has bean she had the back up off the constitutional Tribunal, as well as from the U U and as well as the Away s so she had basically all the support in order to, uh, to assume as president of Bolivia legally, So this is this is something very strange that it's happening in the country, and we basically don't know why one off the keys could be the fact that that the movement to a socialism have lost all the major cities. And some of the major states in the country on the elections that we have last Sunday. This election's once where to elect governors and also mayors and Mrs municipalities. And basically the government. The movement to a socialism have lost all the major cities in the country. So probably this is one of the reasons why this is happening. In fact, the second turn the second round off this elections That has to be done that has to take place on April 21st. It's right now in danger, because because of this, and also is there any coincidence that ever, Morales has just arrived in Bolivia from when a Zara's where he'd been Living in exile. Well, yes, probably. That's part of the reasons we just don't know yet. Nothing is very clear because the accusation doesn't have really, uh, legal

I'm so excited to be joined here by jason loud. The coo at okay coin. Jason thank you so much for joining us today and let's start off just by asking you know. How has it been for you and your team just coping with the whole virtual situation The past couple months. Hey rush thanks for having me That's this is certainly been a challenge right a challenging year for for most of us and has been no different for our team. We were based here in san francisco. And i think the most interesting thing about this year for us has been that we've actually expanded our quite dramatically over the past six seven months. Despite the fact that we none of us have been in the office. Our office has been closed. And we've had Last i checked was thirty. New people join us over this this time so with thirty colleagues teammates that have never met anyone else on our team So we we we very quickly transition to doing everything online as most of you know everyone else is doing And you know that that's been fun and challenging at the same time. Yeah that's actually a cool little fact to start things off because a lot of let's say traditional companies are trying to down size or they're all they're already going virtual so glad to hear that you being one of the crypto companies in the space are are hiring and expanding. I'm a little more on. That front. looks like okay. Corn has been up to a lot of different things especially when it comes to licenses and regulations. I've seen a great push in the in the eastern market and even in asia What can you tell me about the importance for you. All of the asian market. And do you think that will that will continue to see more growth there or Do you think that the us 'cause you said you're in san francisco do that in the us. Some things will be will be yeah On that note we even just sort of on our licensing and compliance teams. We've we've added a lotta people specifically because we are sort of targeting this global approach to regulations and licenses and and the like So on your on your question. Around what our efforts have been And sort of what regions were looking at we are we're regulating here in the us We're also regulated in europe The the malta regulators. Over there we last year I might be getting my dates wrong. But i think yeah last year earlier this year we got our license in japan and so that that was a process that took almost two years to to accomplish so Big props to the team there as well as Working on our licensed today in singapore. So we've got a whole bunch of things going on And i think the important is that Licensing one it's obviously the the law right. We have to comply with what governments and regulators are are putting in mostly consumer protection. But you know putting in place to make sure that there's a building of trust in our in our space and to it permits us to access And sir bill that that Userbase with the with the backing of these regulators and permission right So so regulation is super important and then as we think about that. Broadly like i mentioned we do service users globally so not no. I don't want to say one region is more important than another But you know our heritage stems from originally founded in In beijing in two thousand thirteen and so we do have a very strong user base and brand recognition in asia will always remain a key. Focus point for us. We mentioned singapore mentioned japan. But all the parts of asia to hong kong southeast asia are areas that we we we certainly have have users and continue to grow that area

If you're always looking for people that you can manage you understand what you're doing you can direct them You're never going to grow as an organization because the organization's capabilities and be defined by you and your skill sets experience and your job as leader exactly to find people that are better than do what they do in out of their way and help them right just figure out. Serve them figure out how to help them junior. Jobs cleared roadblocks for them And that was a really important lesson early in my career. And i think has shaped how i hire and build teams to this very day to your point. Yeah it's Plenty of time. I mean pressure situations where i'm desperate for resources and help but i try very actively in very hard not to compromise i try i try to always make sure that i'm hiring people who are gonna be people that i want to be in the company along an nine away. We've all experienced working large companies. And sometimes i find leaders get themselves into Silly traps because there we sources about to be reduced so they'll Individual who may not be performing well because hit house outs being acted. And so they'll make these trade off decisions Simply because of the shenanigans. The ilan in large company operational conditions and Sometimes you find yourself selling your soul a little bit in order to To simply have some level of capability Assuming you found that to be a part of your background in. This is another way which entrepreneur leaders. I'd avoid that trap. Yeah exactly and i've seen the same thing. Obviously i've been in large public companies. Since i've seen i've seen people play that game and again part of it i get. It doesn't large companies are dealing with the law. Big numbers right. You can't have everybody. In large organization being a player can by definition In so there are some compromises. Think you have to make new dealing arts organization and you're trying to fill hired at many people The but i think that's one of the really nice things about being a smaller organization. Is i think you you have the time in your at the scale where you can really try to make sure that every single person that you're is somebody they really wanna work with some time. Nicely stated Last question for me. And i have a radar up around Cliches and buzzwords that we find become a leadership triumphs in an open cell and i picked up the servant leadership term that you use which sometimes i find bandied about rather loosely. You've applied at erie. Authentically in your leadership of minute and recognized that but maybe my last question is. How do you define leadership. I define servant leadership very simply. It's about Focusing more on the employee employees success been on your own and then on the companies. Because i think if you can help your employees is successful where they grow and they develop. They get better at their jobs. Bettering their careers that contributes overall to the success of the company. And i just i think I just find it a much more effective way of managing. I think i think most people really air looking for growth you've seen studies is all the time I think when you look at various factors likely stay in an organization or want to stay in a role or hurts. Compensation are eds or titles or you know over and over again it comes to like growth and development people learn. They want to grow the on editor at their job offs. And i think if you can just orient yourself as a manager to thinking about it and looking at it that way. I just you know over and over again i find you. You have happy. You teams happier. Employees feel fulfilled and and are engaged in the company and engaged in their roles. Thank you sean. I'm five one last light hearted question to to end our session onto them. I'm curious saying if you had to describe your leadership style in the form of a fragrance description how would you write it down And be sure that includes several notes this warm residents if you haven't had a servant leadership thing would have probably said chris clean we just sort of this the where i am oriented in the fragrance of that i like i tend lightly nerves that are chris simpson and so maybe i'm projecting a little bit and say my leaves you've style is best described that way i'd say warm is probably you know i i i. Don't you know you leaders and managers started about. Are you friends with your employees or the managers or leaders of the employees. Find like that's a sort of a fault will trade off. I think that you can be later in union. Help people and drive or formats and and do the things that you need to do as the responsible erin manager and still have even meaningful personal relationships. Your employees I don't know how you can be somebody that cares about them and their development and their careers and really able to help them with back without really getting to know them as a person. What are they care about their family as whatever relationship like Ally knew that may not be for a guy is just you know to me. That's continuum that. I'm always willing to go down and to this day. I said i have a lot of people at work that i still have deep friendships with And i follow their careers and Love to see their successes and One of the core tenants of trust. So that's every week talking about unskilled and you can have harder treats tougher conversations with people who No you've got your back. yeah. I agree on so i'm thanks for for coming on today. And thanks for joining us on the leadership trap and and having some fun with us we really appreciate it heavy on on the show here today. Thanks for inviting me.
"coo" Discussed on The Leadership Trap
"He thinks in like movie sets so he'll think of a story like doctors a then. His team of designers will build this elaborate. Essentially a movie sat cropped with everything from those stories as they scour the ruled and find jake's and things they create is huge muggy sat and then the models become characters in the story and then he can then judge whether the clothes he's looking at it from like. Do the clothes made sense. They occurred early part of the story and all of and that's really how he designs. And so that's how he markets if you look at his imagery there's always this sort of story image And so we wanted to try a could we sell fragrance by tallying. These kind of life stories. Lifestyles stores tried to immerse somebody in a moment into a story And so we very deliberately say we're not going to say what the notes of the fragrance are you know because we were like no are sort of not very many people really understand what they are really perfume insider. It's like being an unavoidable right. Like i describe wines and like these very complex ways that most people are like okay intimidate very intimidating and like so. Let's not do that. You won't even put notes and from day one we're constantly have client customers calling but listen. What are the nuts. What are the top notes with with. Tomlin's would've no later than notes so we ultimately caved in and said okay clearly our customer telling us something to include the notes so now if you go to our second notes but it wasn't something that we you know started out to do and really fought for a long time forever a reason because i think there are terms in the industry wide. What they mean right so it's not actually that helpful to say those are unless you really understand you know what they mean wrote that that is actually supposed to smell. It's words that people know like you say sandalwood sandalwood spells interest for those somewhat removed from his would say well singles. Yes i i am. I'm not wild about what that may evoke by the way we we are. We are a large team of researchers behind us. They went and looked up. Rosina's or us and its nose like one of the tree sap substances so there you go okay resin got it that makes sense right. Thanks day for stopping me. I'll take that back to the office. But that's maybe david Transition more Some more deeper Leadership questions maybe in fact A bit further into the build out of the star company that you are putting out into the market lace. You've taken some outside money. I i assume ryan Is that Series as stage or seed round. We have yeah we did. We did a series as the lead early friends and family kinda rounds in new a fairly substantial seed round with a lead was mexico's ventures which is a venture capital firm here in austin And then we did series About year and a half ago two years ago also led by next coast but in broadens additional busters at that time share for those folks who are sparring entrepreneurs future leaders of startup companies. What are the trade offs when you take outside to. What extent are you giving out these of your leadership profile to accommodate the entrance of outsiders who may want to nurse their investment in ways different than you and your partner's interest growing up. How do you strike a balance to ensure their trust and Have a reasonable distance so you can run the operation. Yeah any there's there's a couple of important considerations You know. I i think is really about relationship right ease. Investors are more than likely going to be on your own and they're going to be interacting with you on a regular basis and helping you make strategic decisions And actually providing you guidance and information and advise and court beyond just the money right so you really looking at inc for somebody. The individual and accompany that shares. Your values you know has some industry expertise and connections at you may not have You feel to me. It's a lot like taking a business partner right like literally like mine business. Our business earlier we say is a heck of a lot more time than business. It's your spouse and so that relation is really important and you have to think a lot about what matters to you in that relationship as you said that advice. I think the same thing is true with investors. You wanna find somebody that you happy working with in good times and bad as you will have those those things or sure. And you strike the balance of avoiding some investors temptation to be overly active within the company. I admired Ceo's in founders. Who are able to Keep the The board engaged and aware and operating were high. Trust and keeping them removed enough. So you guys can run your operations an ear. Looting to that and i i get the sense. You've been able to strike a balance recently. Well yeah and i think that I i do have the benefit of having worked you know with other boards in the past the public companies in smaller companies. and so. I've had that experience by partners. Have that experience. And so. I think we came in with our eyes open and with a clear understanding of how we wanted to work. With our or y- the type of people wanted him on the order. How we wanted to work with emily where we wanted them to be part of where we wanted to drive the business ourselves manage business ourselves and so we've been able to establish those boundaries very early on in you know we love our horror. They've been helpful. Not only from financial sense from a strategic sam and.
"coo" Discussed on Technovation with Peter High (CIO, CTO, CDO, CXO Interviews)
"Arm of that Australian organization now. Of course we've been discussing. You're the COO. Of this forty billion dollar Energy Organization World Fuel Services. I wonder if you could talk a bit about what it was about your time. As chief information officer in the several hosts that you had that title in that enabled you to rise in a couple of different instances to broader sets of responsibilities. I I think one is the focus on talent. That's been something I've gone into. Different companies that in one way shape or form was You know needed to. Do you know Kinda forklift improvements. And I think when you put in tough situations you know it forces you and helps you become a better problem solver because you have to diagnose a big problem breaking into small problems and in multi process that problem through through different teams. So I think the circumstances I I've been I was at Suncorp as CIO originally when the financial crisis it and we couldn't get wholesale funding. It was very close to not being not being in a bank insurance company when we're almost ran out of funding and when you have those falling off the cliff moments you can bring the skills ultimately outside and technology skills the greatest skills any leader can have is bringing clarity of purpose their teams and inspire them to do work and solve a problem in a different way or to multitude of ways. And I and I think your frame of reference has to kind of expand from technology's going to solve it all to hey high gets great people you know in some smaller teams break his big problem down. I can I can multi process it and I can get it done at a faster pace. Then you realize this skills are just as pertinent whether you're running procurement or or finance or hr or customer service organisations. The Reality Is Cultures. The only unique thing any company has anything any other thing products strategies and those can be copied. The culture is hard and and so I think as a CIO. You learn key skills that you learn how to do problem solving and I think that is something that you know through CIO roles. That helped me a lot and getting prepared to take take on a CEO Shared Service company where Coo. I also wanted to ask you before I let you go As you look to the future. Jeff what trends particularly excite you What are some of the areas that you're you're investigating or even investing in as you look Safety years out. Well I think you know. A lot of the innovation and new technologies and solutions are only natively on the cloud. So I think you know you have to have your business has to be crowded native you this concept of I think hybrid cloud is just a transition could get to the ultimate state because the innovation is not being done. You know on Trim it is. It is absolutely with the cloudplayer's I'd say particularly you know. Aws Microsoft so you know we haven't aggressive push to close all twenty one of our data centers close ten today in little over a year and migrated you know hundreds of applications so I think that helped one you. You do a couple of things help. Lower your cost. You can get better. Performance better data security in terms of encrypting your Your data indulges skills at the same time. It's one of those kind of effective success. It helps your employees helps your customers that helps your business. But I think that's the footprint in order to really take advantage of AI and machine learning and robotics so we're doing an awful lot on robotics and machine learning and I think that's kill of machine learning and applying it to the right data in the right business. Problem is going to provide the biggest benefits in the future. Most people have just not taken their data as an asset. It's kind of A. It's it's necessary evil to conduct your business as opposed to your real asset so I think that movement of understanding that your your analysis skills and your digital skills in that space to be domain specialist in data and being able to analyze it and build algorithms and models that can make your business perform better that to me is the next. Three years is the is the thing to really get good at. And then if you can you can differentiate yourself on the market excellent with Jeff Smith. Thank you so much for taking time with the meet today Speaking on television about actual career you arise from chief information officer to broader responsibilities. Your current posts this Yo world services and journeys Lavar at least across to an APP years of of Transformation there it's been a great conversation. Thank you very much. Thanks for tuning in. Please show me for a special bonus episode this Thursday featuring as she'd sing which eve executive officer of thought spot..

"COO making it clear that they have not considered going in a different direction from Baghdad that's the closest he can say anything relevant or related in any way to Tom Brady you know that's one of the challenges this week and we need to do the remedial tampering training with you there have been times in the past for you have just blurted out guys under contract with other teams talking to code I did at A. M. time slot you can't you can't write comment on Tom Brady or any other quarterback on that still under contract with the team they're also under contract and you guys are going to be free agents next month start a contract with the current team but dak Prescott technically under contract with the cowboys they want to get him signed Stephen Jones said yesterday that there have been no discussions between the team and Prescott agent Todd France I was shocked amber I was shocked when I heard that there's nothing to talk about yeah I think what's there to talk about once the season is going and you exchange your offers and that's it you're just playing out the final year the call I just thought like once we got to a name or not making the playoffs so that would hear you there be some at a few moments of dialogue ballpark numbers what were thinkin when we'll get back to you here or something like that and not driven business once you get C. there's value before the season starts in negotiating with dak Prescott because if you do a deal with him then you take away from him the injury risk that comes from playing out the contract that's the reason to do it right after the season ends there's no reason for him to talk the next deadline is the application of the franchise tag that and I was talking about this earlier on radio there are certain points that we need to look at application the franchise tag deadline that's the next key deadline for Prescott because the cowboys want to get the deal done so they can then use the tag on Amari Cooper sure they give up a first round pick to get from the raiders a year and a half ago and he may walk away and remember last year there we don't hate during the time period are first round picks on the clock will be watching Amari Cooper film that's our first topic or not he's gonna so that's the big key deadline try to get it done before the franchise tag window closes so you can tag Cooper after that then the deadline becomes gonna tell them anything yeah what do they do with that happens that's because he's not going to show up yes and said it I guarantee he's not gonna show up no he seems like he is driving a hard bargain there's no doubt about it what about that whether with the comments we've heard the way he acted and talked when I did my little interview with them down at the the Super Bowl you know you could tell that there was an unwavering confidence in him right now to where he knows he's got the cowboys by you know the coach who knows a little bit easier he's fully within his rights to not show up right member the cowboys are the ones that are taking advantage of the rules that allow them to keep him off the open market with the franchise tax once that happens he has rights right and his rights include I'm not showing up for anything until I signed a contract have you Mike Florio who knows a lot of people in football and also has a good guy and when I hear your got sometimes we think somebody's told something but either way have you heard anything as far as numbers where the heck up is anything between those two that way because I haven't heard like I haven't heard one peep about it like well they're this far off on guaranteed money you're you're not it's what it's always been it's the cowboys think there is inherent value in being the quarterback account right so for that reason you should take last we heard that from Emmett Smith last week should take less because you're gonna make it back in marketing dollars handed you the quarterback the cowboys when you're done playing you can walk right into a broadcast booth I mean look yes in wit and Troy Aikman Tony rode out right it's an easy pathway into a thirty year career I want to take a class or not just for me me just because I want to see him do well have a good team around him because I like him but I'm not trying to tell anybody what to do with their money something.
