It was definitely a moment. I'm i think for any author to see your words in print like that in a book is of course you know moment but to see the artwork and to see how they laid it out in. How it was put together was just a lot. Yeah it was something else. It's so beautiful and before we started this interview we were both talking about how people are doing our books as bible study so. Your book is not a traditional bible. Study it to me. It's like a coffee table book. It's a book that you could leave out because it's so lovely but it is not a traditional nonfiction book. Either where it's just where you just read it through. The this is really meant to be a place to just sit with the lord to to to work on that practice of uncut in your soul in. It's is beautiful and it's a place that you wanna be and so But i love that. You said that you've got women who are doing it as a bible study man because i think that right now you know in this with all that we've gone through to just have those moments that we can even come together with others and reflect and and just unclutter and it's a place of beauty God god created us to create beauty.

They're even an organ but it's on amazon and christian books and all those places you could get it to. So yes it's easy and available. There's also a kindle version of it and one of the things. I wanted to say the number one common i've gotten about the beauty of the book is that allowed. People don't want to write in it and their space for you to write because like you said it's a hybrid it's devotional. It's a bible study in its journal all in one and so i said get yourself some really pretty pence and writes in the book because then it will be a keepsake for you and so these right in the book and Like i said it's meant to be enjoyed.

"Before things got big. This was in the in the early eighties. Eighty five and i also notice that when we got to this apartment like i was obsessed with turning over forks and looking at tablecloths and everything in the house was made in italy and i was like wow this country sustains itself because backing connecticut everything was getting huge supermarkets and this little downtown that we had with a butcher shop in a fish market and everything was all closing down and and then i had this one memory of it's called the night of san lorenzo when there's a lot of shooting stars so we went up into the hills you could see the the adriatic coast and then we just sat there in. The sky was so clear and they were shooting stars everywhere. And i just said i wish i could live here someday. I was. I was totally hooked. I was thinking. Why did my grandparents leaves paradise. Yeah so that trip clearly had a huge impact on you And i guess when you went to college went to connecticut college i went to connecticut. College wanted to stay close to home. Because i didn't know if my father was gonna be alive or not. So that's where that's where in in your dad. Your dad passed away pretty soon after that trip. He did a couple of days before actually started college. Well and it got to the point where you had to decide your major so i was looking through the book and i said let me look in italian and it said if you majored in italian and you have financial aid. You have to spend a year abroad in italy and the program covers like your -partment which is stepping mouse mats me. That's me a half to go. It's calling me. So you end up spending your junior year abroad in italy and that year would be like chains rest of your life because year you met the man who would eventually become your husband and business partner rodolfo. How did you guys. how did you meet. yeah he. He was a friend of one of these distant relatives that i had that lived in modena. And he said oh. Let's my mother said. I should come and pick you up and take you to her house so you can say hi to her so we went to his house and been had just pulled up because his best friend live next door wasn't your husband. Yes he was gone as soon as i saw. I was like if. I'm pretty enough for you. You're my man. i just knew it. he was just. I don't know it just had this feeling and you hit it off right away. We were just friends. I mean we would. I would go in italy. When you're that when you're that age you have like this group of friends. And they all go out together. So on friday or saturday nights they would say. Hey do you wanna come to modern. Go out with us so the girls would sit on one side of the table. The guys would sit on the other and they would just talk all night long and i was. I'd get bored. You know they were talking about things like oh. Have you ever heard of like band row. They have these roll ons now. That work as the and i was like. Oh my god but They would always sit next to him because he didn't have a girlfriend. Was he a student. He actually had just finished military service and he had previously studied agriculture in bologna but his family had had some financial hardships so he had to go to work. So i guess youtube start dating and as a certain point you go back to the us to finish college. But then you return to italy in yoon rafa moving together right. yes and what. What were you both doing. He was working as agricultural company. And i had my first and only job as a translator but after a couple of months i got yelled at because i translated stainless steel to inox sizable stealing. It was an important company to those important. You know customer so the man who ran the place took me in his office and just yelled. I'm in. I just looked at me said i quit. You know so i. I've only had one job in my life and it was like two months and we were already having a hard time making ends meet. because in italy pe- people don't really make a lot of money in fear. Parents don't have something. It's almost impossible to get ahead and i didn't wanna be like my parents always worrying about money. I wanted to have a family. I wanted to. I wanted to do things. So i was very motivated to to get ahead. You wanted to start a business. I did and so i convinced my husband to go to the united states because one day i was like kind you can open up businesses states for like two hundred dollars and he said okay. Well so you convinced him and by the way to speak any english now. He studied german school so he knew no english. You convince him rodolfo. You convince them to go to the us and you're not married at this point right now but we did have to get married for him to get it. I got you just like he called. My my cousin was like a justice of the peace and we signed the papers. That was you get married to come back to the us and now what was the idea. What was the business you. we're gonna do. The first business idea was to move to miami and open up dna hut at the beach. So paige dina is like the flat bread that they make on the adriatic coast and they have these striped huts. And you just stuff them with pursued or ci user greens or tomatoes and that was our idea so we drove to southern florida and we actually stayed in a campground in a tent and it was very frustrating. Because nobody was going to give you the permit to open up in a hut in miami beach and so one night. I went to bed and i left my sneakers tent and when i woke up in the morning i put them on with no socks and there were these little teeny fire ants inside the sneakers and my feet and it was so painful. I looked at my husband. I started to cry. And i said let's go back to connecticut. I can't take it anymore. All right and you go back to connecticut. Did you go back to new london where he grew up. We love of my parents. I didn't have any with my mother. I didn't have any money so we were in the kitchen brainstorming and my brother and his friend were there. And i said we're going to open a fresh pasta shop with lake prepared sauces in the first town called mystic connecticut. And they were like you'll never make it. You need to make sandwiches and grinders and things like that so connecticut. Yeah so i was like all right all right so we found this man who made this really good italian bread. It was like twenty minutes away and so we would go. We would leave our house. Alight five in the morning. Pick up the whole load of bread. And and then i would weave in some italian thing soleil made. I made spinach pie. And we found an empty store and it was only five hundred dollars a month. We couldn't really afford a or anything. So i actually painted the windows backwards in red paint and this was. This was in like the late eighties. Right get was ninety one. Oh wow so if. I have my cinematic history correct. This is after mystic pizza. The movie came out probably. We didn't get many tourists though. It was premature local spy. And we also. My brother had loaned us five thousand dollars and we took fifteen hundred of that and bought this old famer cappuccino machine so we were the first people in town have cappuccino machine and.

Episode # 62 Crafting a Powerful Performance Review: Col. Carla Bass
"Listeners. And welcome back to workplace perspective carla bass. Hello and thank you for the opportunity. I'm glad to have you back. I was. I was looking back at our shows and we had you on the show just about this time last year talking to us about how to be better writers in our work lives. And today we're gonna be talking about performance reviews from both the employer employee perspective. Secret cited to hear what you have to say about all of that but before we get started. Why don't you tell our listeners. A little bit about you and what you do right now mike. My mission is to teach people how to write powerfully. Why because opens doors to opportunity that would otherwise remain closed now with that in mind and based on the difficulties that cove it has inflicted on everybody. I can post three free e books on my website. They address How to write a standout resume how to write a performance review and how to write a grant submissions. So i- laser focused everything. I'm going to say on those three areas but my my journey has done amazing for forty five years. I've written products for the white house and congress and generals and ambassadors Thirty of those years was on active duty in the air force in the last fifteen was with federal agency. The pivot point for me that changed my life and is what brought me to you. Today is when i was a lieutenant. Colonel i was a squadron commander in hawaii in charge of four hundred eighty wonderfully talented people when i arrived that unit was the most losing unit in statewide professional awards. Not because the kids didn't deserve to win but because the supervisors could not write winning packages so i developed. My methodology. Taught my guys how to write. We began sweeping the awards. And then i ended up teaching that for the next fifteen years to thousands of people and When i retired. I pivoted that and turned it into a book that that place to everyone. Corporate business private and that's right to influence It's now in its second edition. And it's one eight eight national level awards so this is what i do nowadays. Well that's awesome. We'll have links Your website and you'll publications on our podcast page when we get your show put up. But let's get into it so when it comes to crafting these meaningful powerful performance reviews. What advice can you offer to employers and supervisors and on the flip side employees. Ls what you're thinking. sure. I have eight tips for the employer a supervisor the first to recognize that a performance review is a strategic tool. Not only are you grooming the future of the individual you're also grooming the future of the organization because through it you're trying to promote the best of the best so it actually impacts the organization's future second is impact Make sure when you're telling these stories that you explain the so what. The impact is the heart of the performance review and supervisors because of their elevated positions have a wider perspective. And they sometimes have a better vantage point What impact the individual actually had like dropping a pebble in the pool. The the individual can see the first couple circles but the employer has a bird side. You and understands more so he needs he or she needs to explain that to the employees and make sure it's reflected in the performance review The third tip is to position your subordinates. For future successes create material for the next performance review and by that i mean recognize outstanding performances formerly with thank you notes or time off awards. Note compliments that they received from clients and keep an email file for each each employee. That would Where you can gather this this very valuable material. The next is award speaking of awards if you have a superstar that you'd like to submit for award and you're you're really really busy. Ask that individual to draft a reward nomination on him or herself to do the initial legwork that does two things it takes a little bit of the burden off of you and it also gives that individual practice. And here's how you craft a hard hitting award report qualities do you. Do you value specific qualities in an employee like teamwork or flexibility communication skills. Or whatever if you do tell them that so they have that mark Against which they can they can measure the performance number six and this applies to. Everybody is framed. The story put the put the The item that you're describing in context was detailed detail provides a mental yardstick where people can actually understand what you're trying to say so for example My most valuable branch cheese sounds good but you could only one or two branch sheets so say the most valuable of my eight branch cheese or employee of the quarter okay but employee of the quarter selected from forty five peers. That's what i mean when i say. Put it in context and the final two tips for the supervisor of the employer is started off thinking terms of a boxer. You hit the reader with a solid right cross. That's the opening hook and here are some examples of opening hooks Her top three of many accomplishments bla-bla-bla propelled her office to new heights and then continue Impervious to stress. He that that that that the an opening hook like that tells the reader pay attention. What follows is important. So that's the criticality of open hook that the last quote the last words. The closing words are as important as the opening hook because that forms the final impression so examples of a of a closing hook the closing words would be excelled in this top job or her proactive can do approach is contagious or place in positions to influence others. So you've basically got a sandwich you've got the the hard hitting opening the center that focuses on the impacts and has the details. And then you've got the closing. So those are the thoughts for the supervisors and for the employees. It's there hang onto the second. carlisle me. ask you something. We're going to take a break in the end. We'll come back and talk about the employee part of it but let me ask you this about the supervisors. Those are awesome thoughts. That's great. I love the you know putting things in context
How to Identify Your Best Customers & Get More of Them
"Many entrepreneurs when they looked to gain more customers. They don't ask an important question. What kind of customers. Who are you looking for. A lot of us. Spend a lot of time a lot of money and energy acquiring any kind of customer the wrong customer and said well you want to do. Is you want to find your true fans as mentioned in kevin kelly's Blockposts thousand fans. If you're not familiar with the blog post the theory is that if you have a thousand true fans a thousand customers that absolutely love what you do in rave about it. That's all you need for a successful business because you can sell a thousand people something that can make you a living in the whole point. Is that those thousand people of course are going to tell other people when you love something when you absolutely enjoy an experience at a restaurant at a resort experience with a new product or software. You get help. Tell other people about it. Whether it's in person or on social in your mastermind. Whatever the point is is that if you have a thousand people raving about you. You're just going to go gangbusters so you need to find people that are perfect fit. That will do that for you now. Of course it's not easy to get thousand right off the bat you're going to start with one two three four ten twenty one hundred two hundred you get the point. So how do we get to those thousand people. How do we attract the right people what we got to know who they are. We had a densify them. Just like if you wanted to attract talent to your team you'd have a job description right. You put a job post describing. This is who. I'm looking for. So what i want you to do. Is you're going to start creating a description of your best customer that avatar that person now. You don't have to make this up. You don't come out of thin air and say this person is made up and this is what they do and this is the type of business. Just look at your current customer base. Even if you're new you have those special customers. The ones that really are interested in what you do. The ones that congratulate you when you have a new product or new feature via email. They reply to your newsletters there on your weapon ours. They comment on your social posts. I want you to really do some research and identify these people in your customer list. Literally create a spreadsheet and. Write down their name and email address. Even if this is just like a dozen people or half a dozen people that's okay that's start now the dentist who they are. You gotta learn a lot about them. You wanna have a full understanding of who. These people are individually for example. I did this exercise. And i continue to do this. Exercise every single year. And i do customer interviews so reach out to my best customers and i try to learn as much as possible about them. For example one of our customers are the. Mary meeker sisters. Emma and carla pompous there wondering ninja users in the us webinars to grow their business to bring in new customers into their online yoga and pilates school and in the process of that conversation in understanding who they are. We ask questions like what you start this business. How long have you been doing this. How big is your team. How did you discover women are ninja. How'd you hear about it. Why did you choose us another competition. What do you like most about what problems is assault for you. What's next in your journey. What are you excited about in the future of your business. I'm basically like interviewing them. Like interviewing them on sixty minutes or something or on a podcast. I'm trying to get inside their brain. I wanna understand where they're coming from why they made the decisions they meet. What are the circumstances in their business. That causes them to use my product. Also of trying to dig a little deeper find out what is success to them. What are they looking to achieve. I want to know this. Because i want to be able to help them be successful in some way whether it's a now with my product in the future the point here is that i wanna be a part of that success on bought in. So what's the point of this exercise. The reason why you want to get to know your best customers. So well. Because i'm better. You know them the easier. It is to find people like them. If you ever had an employee that Left your company and there are green employees in the job above and beyond your expectations but decided to move on or they're changing careers. It's easy to write a job description for that position because you're basically describing that amazing team member. I'm looking for this person and it's easy for you to do that because you know who that person is. You know what they've done you know their story and you're going to do the same before your customers. Now one of the things that we do in these interviews in these conversations in these video calls is that we actually transcribe them. We actually want to see the words that they use when they talk about themselves and they talk about their business when they talk about their problems with talk about their challenges when they talk about why they chose our product. Why because again. I want to attract people just like them so wanna use the same language. I want to use the same language on my website on my social posts in my email marketing and want my potential superstar customer to read my copy and say they're speaking my language this resonates with me because this is exactly how i feel. How do they know while because they did the research because they did the work and there's nothing like that feeling when you feel like these people get me. It's hard for you to compete with a company that does that so your competition is going to have a hard time competing with you because your target market your customers. Your best customers are flocking to you. Because you're speaking their language now in this process where you're going to find is not. Everybody is your best customer. You're gonna find a thread. you're gonna find. hey home. i best customers have this in common. It could be. They could have established businesses. They could be making at least x amount of money. They have a small team. They've tried other products before mine. This is a really good exercise to make a list of all the things your best customers that you've interviewed have in common and guess what there is your customer avatar. And what you're gonna find is there's a lot of people outside of that and that's okay. Hey because it's better for you to attract the best customers. They're going to save time and money and headaches and problems. What you want are the people that really believe in what you're doing and want what you have is nothing worse than trying to convince somebody. Hey we're number one. We're great trust us. And they were allegedly by then. They're disappointed and it has nothing to do with what you did for them. It just means grizz are not a good fit successful products accessible services accessible businesses. Don't force it. They say this is who we are. This is who we serve if you're gonna love what we have in store for you but none of this is possible if you don't know who those people are if you don't know who are your best customers and what's great about business zandt Success leaves clues right customers that love. You really enjoy what you do that comment on your post. That really liked all the things on social that. Open all your emails. You have their contact. You can reject them. You can ask them some questions some of us when they do this for the first time you feel awkward like man who am i to ask for their time for a quick chat. If you feel awkward dory about it there are a fan. They're gonna love helping you and if you want to be super generous sake. Coffees on you and send them a starbucks gift card.

You're going to have more money. Come in more revenue more repeat sales all that kind of stuff. But if you don't do that the opposite will happen where you're going to get more customers that you don't really enjoy serve inc than the ones you do and that's a bad place to be in your business where you don't let your customers or you don't resonate with them and you're annoyed by them when you have to answer an email. You're kind of roll your eyes. Oh man this person. That's a horrible place to be. And you have to be proactive about who you want to associate with. We want to work with.

Maintaining Inner Peace
"I'd like to introduce you to your fellow meditators. This is from carla. Who is from lotus california in the united states. She says i have so enjoyed. Your meditation podcast. Currently i am listening with greater frequency and for the exact reason that you suggested a media blackout these days. It is so important to keep one's inner peace. Thank you with your help. In that i intend to work up to joining you on the sipa gnome app. But i'm not there yet. So thank you so much. Carla and i really respect that you are turning to meditation and sources. You find uplifting as you do your media blackout as you call it. I think that's a good description. I also really admire that. You honor yourself right where you are and that you know that right here on the podcast is working well for you and you know that the cipriano map for more deeper guided support is always there for you if you find you need that. So let's meditate closure is and gently. Elevate them upward. It's best if you're seated with a straight spine to help. Keep you alert as you meditate. But you might find that lane down. Works best for you. Do what works well for you at this point. In your ritual begin to notice the rhythm and flow of your breath. Take a moment to feel grounded to feel connected and grounded to what matters most to you. You could focus on your first chakra right at the base of your tailbone connecting you to where you're seated the album indus earth color is red. You could visualize a tree blowing in the breeze yet. Grounded firmly with roots stretched out beneath the earth for support. Think about people in your life that support you who helps you to feel ground head out gratitude to these people in your life. Maybe your job or your health or your family helps you to feel grounded. You'll strong within yourself as you reflect on what you're grateful for

I didn't know at the time what I had heard I just knew it was true I stuck my head through the cab window and I just said that you believe in God and they share the Gospel with me I immediately started repenting. They didn't even tell me to do that. It was just so it was a supernatural. Thing where I just began to unload on them. All of this stuff I was carrying like drinking all the time and partying, and they're just super gentle to me and they give me a bunch of scripture to read. So. They actually sat with me for about forty five minutes. They wouldn't let me pay for the cab ride home and they sat outside my apartment just minister to me as I wept in the back, the Holy Spirit just doing work on me. You got out of that car really a new person. I really knew that something had changed something was different and I was ready to sign up for this God. A month later, I got baptized the Holy Spirit in that was really a change. I, mean that was day and night for me realizing that Oh. My Gosh. The presence of God is real. You know the power got Israel all of this stuff that I thought was sort of fictional growing up even I grew up going to a really conservative type of church. Maybe once every couple weeks, we would kind of show up late and liberally kind of thing help me understand Carla the foreign after difference that you experienced when you receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit I would say the before and after difference was you know I had about four weeks in between.

"Carla I. . Love that we were both up at midnight emailing and prepping for this. . A says so much. . Yes. . The the the story behind the story. . You just announced that you're leaving General Mills after twenty two years right now, , the go-to practice buzzy thing in career advancement is zigzagging changing jobs every two to four years your career is sort of a case study in the opposite taking the long road to the. C. . Suite. . How were you compelled to stay for so long? ? I'm probably kind of an old fashioned person and I. . Was Very Intentional in picking the first company that join out of business school. . Before Business School, , I was not very familiar with careers in corporate America. . My parents were both educators and we didn't really have any business people in our family. . Largely. . Probably because my family is black and Latina Afro Latino for my dad and. . Secretary Shen really prevented us from being able to have a path through corporate, , America. . So when I got to business school I had so much to learn about how does one even navigate and find a company in finding career path. . When I realized that my skills were really well suited for marketing strategy then I went about making it my business to figure out what where are the best of the best marketers going where are the? Best ? of the best strategist going 'em back. . Then the area we call consumer packaged goods, , food companies, , companies that make your household facial cleansers the things you wash your dishes with the product. . See every day in the main part of the grocery store those companies where marketing was the absolute core most important skill of driving the success of the company. . My intuition told me that if I could find a company that welcomed and embraced diverse styles. . I was more likely to see leaders who blazed a successful trail that weren't cut from cookie cutter, , and so when I found that in general mills, , there was plenty of learning to do and plenty of career path runway for me. . And so I really played the long game there. . You said you partly went into to marketing because you felt it matched your natural skill set. . So I both wonder what you were assessing your natural skill set. . But then also how is you began to work inside of General Mills? You ? got really good at the thing you were already naturally good at. . What I arrived on the doorstep of business school I didn't actually know what the career pads were inside of a company. . I didn't even know what the job titles were. . So all I could try to correlate when I went to business school was what am I passionate about 'em? ? What do I seem naturally skill that I have always been a creative person I've always been attracted to the arts and I also like associating new ideas in connecting. . DOTS in reaching new conclusions over time in business school I got to learn that the people who love the creative work in business that's often called marketing and the people who love connecting disparate ideas in reaching a new conclusion is often called strategy. . I've also never been a very shy flower I'm fairly direct may be a little bossy and so I also wanted to know what are the jobs that people go to when they like being in charge. . I found now, , where are the industries where people who do marketing strategy are in charge, , and that led me to learn more about consumer products in that industry that's so dependent on those skills. . What were you doing that began to open doors to bigger and better opportunities that the company? ? I have. . I got great feedback from one of my best bosses in he said, , one of my best skills which is an under appreciated skill is that I'm very coach of all. . You want this weird kind of feedback yet because you want a boss to tell you oh, , you're great at analytics or your so sharp your ideas are always the best I've ever heard for someone to say, , wow, , you seem to. . Take Direction while didn't seem like the compliment what I think he was getting at was you I am a very malleable piece of clay I. . Already know at the outset that I don't know everything. . So I remain curious remain open to the knowledge that comes my way and I am willing to continue to grow my own skills and so I don't WanNa be the person that's too proud to ask a question. . And, , I've always been willing to be a learner. .

"Why. I got it. 'cause my my mind was my mind was expanding like Oh really I can tell you know all right. Yeah yeah I I I believe health is a human right. It is not a privilege I I would create an environment where children and adults have the right access that they we need to Clean Drinking Water and nutritious food and environment in where they can they they can move their bodies and exercise in ways that help create health and that when they face an illness that they have the right access to the right clinicians at the right time to so that the best possible decisions can be made to help. Return them to health. Or if that's not an option to help them manage their new realities because in order for us to live the most productive lives and the most satisfying lives and to be a productive member of society. We've got to have our health. A healthy population is a nation's strongest asset. And so if I could change anything I would make health and healthcare a human right. I think that would be a game changer. And I love the way you're one of the greatest assets the country can have. You know I gotTa Tell You you WanNa hear a story out okay so I figured I figured here's that out when right after the November twenty sixteen presidential election I was invited and this had happened prior to the election. Of course I have been invited to speak at an event in Europe and it was It was a European healthcare event and so the elections happen and then the event comes up. I get on a plane. Go over to your. I do my presentation and the organizers of the event event say hey you know. Our audience is a little confused about what just happened in the United States. Would you mind doing wing Second Session like town hall with us and our audience. It could just be a free give and take a QNA as an American who has a lot of experience in health policy. Maybe you can help our audience understand a little bit better Housi- election played laid out now. Okay sure sure so I. I went right back to my my hotel room and refreshed. I everything I could possibly think that the audience might ask me so I had Y- all all very very fresh information and and you know. How did the voting working mark the different demographics voting and how voters in this area voted compared to others at Cetera et CETERA? And because this was a healthcare audience the topic that came up pretty rapidly and they they stayed on was trying to understand the a differing points of view in the United States of politicians in regards to how politicians viewed access to healthcare. And so I was trying to help the audience understand that some politicians the United States view healthcare are as not not as a a right. But as a it's a it's a much more. It's the responsibility of the of the employer in the individual etc and literally the audience. You know how people a cock their head on one side and then they're brow will furrow and they're kind of looking at you like you're speaking a different language. That's what samples heads were doing. And they're looking at me and it's like I'm speaking Martian and they would take wait a minute. Wait a minute wait a minute. We think of healthcare is a right. Why don't you think of healthcare is a right and I I'm trying to Share with them my my understanding of my knowledge of the US political system. But I walked away from that as a human being saying. Oh I am so with this audience. It's I I believe. Healthcare is a right. Well if we treated it that way we would certainly have a bunch of different outcomes in this country. Okay yes yes yes. And I'm certainly not a Pollyanna I understand that there are financial financial ramifications Very challenging problems thorny problems that need to be solved which is why. I'm consecutive in the health industry to start with. These are the kinds of thorny problems I love being involved with to try to help solve and create sanity around. Well speaking of thorny problems and you know we talk about healthcare changing on such a quick pace in this country. How do so you keep up with you? Listen to what you read. What is impacting your day to day? How you understand our healthcare system here? Okay so I I have. I have several several points that I listened to very carefully. One are my clients.

"Women make eighty percent of healthcare purchase decisions so it make sense from a business perspective to have the gender that dominates in the decision the purchase decision making to have that gender represented in the C. Suite just like it makes all the sense in the world all to have the right representation for any kind of product line Now I wanted to I actually I actually have the citation in front joining me. Now I've got a couple of other facts to share with you so there are three point. Eight million female are ends in the United States and there are three hundred and thirty five thousand male nurses practicing in the United States as of twenty seventeen. Those three hundred thirty thirty five thousand men are taking home on average seven percent more in compensation than the three point. Eight million females batting's NC. How does that happen because who like it happens at the point of them being hires right and I I get it? I get lost in like. How does that pass? Somebody's death and make sense to whoever is hiring and AH cross and so I don't get it and I don't either and it's not just nurses it's I have I have information on physicians in twenty any sixteen Jama issued research that male practicing medical doctors may twenty thousand dollars more on average than females in two thousand. Nineteen the MED scape physician. Compensation reported a reported that that pay gap actually widened from Twenty Sixteen to Twenty nineteen gene. Also if you are in a specialty a medical specialty the gender gap is about a hundred thousand dollars on average now. Of course we need to. Also take into account specialties. Go everywhere from from neurology to orthopedics the paediatrics do pediatrics right. Those are all specialties. When you when you pull together? The thirty specialties men male physicians earn earn on average. Three hundred. Seventy two thousand dollars a year women on average earn two hundred and eighty thousand dollars a year that was just staggering absolutely staggering. When you think about that in terms of healthcare and the role he's been playing is a champion of these women especially the next designed you know what are some of the things you're working with them on or yourself to work towards closing that gap or have better representation of women and those types of roles? Yes so I I have a couple of things that that that I think are absolutely key one is everyone is welcome in in solving this problem with me. I'm always very careful and very conscious to say that my interest in closing compensation gap and closing the leadership gap from a gender perspective is not code for being anti man Dan. 'cause I'm not I want men. I went all genders to be part of the solution. They have to be part of the solution again again. If we leave a voice out of this solving the problem we are going to create a polarizing experience and that's going to sabotage the whole effort so everyone is welcome here There are there are a lot of men out there. That are are as perplexed and appalled as I am on and want to see this change and they so everyone is welcome. So that's one item mm-hmm that's really important to me. Another one is knowledge is power. If you don't know how much you're worth you'RE NOT GONNA ask for it so I work very hard to regularly get blogs up there and I do. I'm I'm on the speaking circuit talking about compensation issues and leadership issues from a gender perspective because people simply don't know no and so part of what I do is to remove the the lack of knowledge and replace it with with information highly credible backed based information and then offer right behind it. Once you find out you make laugh uh-huh and somebody else does for the same type of work that you're doing. What do you do with that knowledge which takes him to the third point which is to equip quip everyone for their role in solving the problem? So it means that the individual needs to learn how to be their own best self advocate and there are absolutely steps. That people can take to do that and I can talk about them if you want The person who is in a place of authority of making recommendations on compensation. They need to have this kind of knowledge as well because sometimes they don't even realize that they have a problem on their hands so let's equip them for solving the problem. HR departments they need data. They need to have the fact based information so hr is another place and then of course executive leadership and boards boards of directors need to have access to knowledge that helps them understand why having a equitably compensated compensated diverse executive suite and board of directors is in the best interest of the company. All of those come into play so I have a question and it had an individual as somebody who is you know. A woman seeking the job. Could they as we've been sort of notoriously bad at negotiating or just kind of done a disservice to ourselves and not advocating for better pay across the board. Would you view advise the essentially. Everyone just Kinda does ask for seven percent more potentially at least in certain fields like if you have the statistics at the ready and is that something that women should feel a little bit more confident in at the time of hiring to repair. Take more Let me let me Let me pull that apart a little bit if I could. Because you've got a lot of really important points that you were just making in there So my global answer is that at the point when you find yourself in a position position to negotiate your salary coming into a new position that is likely but not always likely likely to be the place where you have the greatest ability to impact your compensation you've been selected by the company to join their group. They're high on you. They WanNa hire you so make sure that you have your facts. So it's gotTa be evidence-based get the facts on what your profession and the level to generally the the level of expertise that you have and years of experience and such have that data available to you and then practice your or negotiation skills. There are classes out there. There are youtube videos many times community Education like you know through the. There's a local public school system. They'll do classes on negotiating skills. The local community college will offer those kinds of things. Lots of associations will offer those kinds of trainings. Take Him Read about negotiating skills and and then find a friend or a life partner or a colleague that you trust and practice do role playing and and and have somebody asked you questions So that you can practice your answers to them. You GotTa do all all of that when you are actually in a different situation that let's say you you are in your job which you know most people are they only once in a while? Change a job but lots of times. You're in a job and you have a hunch that you are not being paid paid fairly or you come across evidence that appears to show that you actually are not being paid what some of of your colleagues are being paid. This is a different situation and one that you also need to get yourself prepared for Whoa a big mistake that people make is they fly off the handle and they just they get upset and they go crashing into the HR and they're just righteous? No no no no no no no take time go go. He'll find a piece of wooden takes a bite. The thought of something. Whatever you need to calm yourself down pull together your facts again role play and practice this with somebody even if you practice in front of the mirror but give yourself a chance to practice and then go in and make sure that you are both I sharing your point of view in a constructive and confident way and that you also listen seek to who understand because you may not have the full story and the last thing you WanNa do is to go in a righteous and then have the rug pulled out from? I'm under view when somebody provides some additional factual information that that demonstrates that what you thought was does not the whole story so coming in in a calmer but confident way and being able to listen offers has the opportunity to have a better outcome. I think that's really practical advice. And you know women especially I think if you're a parent I think we're better at having those difficult conversations so I think if we can and practicing them is so important because it's one of those she hit the right way up front at some point in time everyone wants more believes they deserve more and I think remaining calm being Jack tive providing the context under what you've come come across the and making a precise at about what you hope this revolution to be what else you need from. The person on the other side of that dialogue logger equation is so important. So I think anyone listening today whether you're in the C.. Suite or not that is super practical. An actual advice well. I'm glad you think so. Let me if I could. I'm just GONNA offer a little bit additional color commentary in that rule playing even again even if you're doing the role playing playing with yourself in front of the mirror but whatever or you're doing it with a trusted person you got to role play. The the knows house That that along along the points in your discussion of when you could could encounter a no. What do you do with the no at that point so that you can find ways days to constructively keep the conversation going and turn that make a left? Turner General Right turn instead of stop when you get a No. That's great advice. That's especially just can't getting a getting used to practicing thing is it's also important. You know to practice saying no. I think that's like women have been known to say yes to a lot of things you even responding to annul really important. And how'd yeah. Yeah you gotTa get good at it and the only way you get good at it. It's a practice it Another thing to keep in to keep in mind is I've been using the word compensation Dan rather than the word salary. Because compensation is a broader word compensation encompasses additional channel items. Like your vacation. Pay Your 401K. Benefits your work environment right. That's all compensation. No I'm thanking drafts. But when you look at the differences between men and women's compensation did they take into account those pieces. Ah Well it's not just that they're getting paid more salary but do they tend to get more vacation days and more contributes in their 401k. Thank you for asking that it allows me to be more precise. Those studies are talking about salary. And oftentimes they interspersed the word salary salary. With the with the word compensation they use it interchangeably but their data is based upon salary. It it it. It might also include incentive or bonus onus but we're talking money okay but I think what Joe knows when you go in there to be more holistic and what it is. I have a girlfriend who found out as VP three VP's at a company. Excuse me for including her. She was the only one that was not offered any sort of equity stake and they were all hired at the same time. They all have the same in credentials. As a matter of fact she went to the same graduate program as one of her colleagues and had had a few years more experience in this specific field. So I think you know I think your point is well. The is based on salaries that we have to be more holistic and are thinking about everything coming our way and maybe even including in those things that you you don't maybe it's walks. Time is more valuable to somebody then an extra thousand dollars a year or whatever the case maybe yes that's exactly where I was going That but in your role playing An and anticipating obstacles. There's biscuits to those negotiations asssociation skills that in your mind you've gone through sort of a prioritization of what is most important to you and what you you are potentially willing to negotiate around like for example you just mentioned flextime that if if your employer either either just doesn't have any budgetary ability no authority to increase your salary at this time. Okay well Oh you know. Let's talk about flex time for the next year. And then we'll revisit salary in a year and that that could be one of your negotiation points. Carla have a great depth of knowledge. You haven't had in very dynamic ability to meet with so many people in healthcare. Tell us if you you know in a very magical world put on your magical thinking hat money. Resources time is not a question. What problem you solve in healthcare or.

"Good point and I agree with you The education education system in this is not a slam against the educators I know that they're doing the best that they can and they have to follow the curriculum. That is the laid out by various school boards and whatnot. But I agree with you What is being taught? Today's not in alignment with what society society needs. Employers need And again we. We talked about this little bit in the in the pre show about a it with social media attention spans. And everything like that you have to like you the example he gave skinny and and get to the point. And when you've been in some of the work that I'm doing And helping an organization with some grant proposals and whatnot. You know there's this AH mindset of okay we get filled up with all of this fluff and this and this. It's like you know what. Here's a bullet point. Here's a hyperlinked to the website. They can look at it and figure out what the organization does it. They don't know about US already and from there. This is why we're asking for this grant money. This is how we're going to use it if we are successful civil in getting the grant and and this is how it will benefit your community by US doing us in get pinpoint in it. Also look for those cues that The grant reviewers are going to be looking for in order for you to have a a decent Chanson on winning bet award yet. Let me share two overarching principles. And then one of my writing strategies. The the first overarching principle. I explain as as this imagine seriously right now. Imagine a a white rectangle. It's it's about an inch tall and five inches wide that and now now inside that rectangle put the big fold word. Opportunity got the message. There is that every single writer both nonfiction fiction and fiction. Every writer is constrained by two items. You're constrained by the readers time. Everybody's busy knock knock knock on busy. What do you want? Tell me quickly I've got other things to do. And you're also constrained by space literally often a government forms will you you To the amount of space that you're allocated to either give input to your performance appraisal Justify resources whatever the messages ages. There's actually often a demarcation line on the area on the form so that's all the space you're allocated on web pages. It's the above above the fold webpage So the the individual the writer who can best leverage that time and that space wins so oh that white right to that white rectangle is opportunity. That's the first principal. Second principle is given that fact you need to not bury. Bury the Golden Nuggets if you only have X. amount of minutes or sometimes seconds to catch threes attention and make your point. The most important important part of your message needs to go first. And then it's backed up with the answer. Larry Information people so often make the mistake of putting down out all of the. Let me lead you enter the story. Let me give you the background information at that point. You've lost the reader so time space boom give me the important Porton stuff up front or I may not hang with you long enough to get to it and the other point going to your comment about the grant writers. The other principal is is empathy. You have to know the audience know your reader know your listeners. And what they need and then right to those needs so if you are applying for a grant know what it is no the the grant providers -nition it's values. Its targets. Its it's desires and then match up your capabilities and what you offer to to those items. I call that the great match game and then N.. Tell your story in a compelling prioritized manner I love those things I love the opportunity component. And that's that's one of those things where I'm going to commit that to memory because there's a lot of things we fill out all the time whether it's it for myself you know to be on other podcast shows or you'll fill out applications for anything and a look at that boxes and opportunity in again another key point. I really want people to to write this down is know your audience chance no matter what you're doing whether you are writer you're right blog. Post your author your podcast show host or you're applying for jobs or applying paying for grants or anything like that. No what your audience needs. And then right in in a way that addresses those needs because their brain is looking for that the the SPEC and addition of right to influence was published last month. There's a chapter in there I I. I really enjoyed writing this particular chapter. It's called the psychology of the catch. Know your audience and so a couch. This as if fishermen in the context of being a fisherman in the skilled the knowledgeable fisherman will know the characteristics of the particular fish. He's trying to catch. No the feeding pattern known where they tend to swim. No the impact of weather on their feeding patterns know the depth of the water in which they reside he knows the target audience. It's the very same psychology for a rider fact or fiction in trying to effectively communicate with the audience against you have to target them by knowing what they need who they are and then and then play to that and if you do that what if you make that the mandate of everything that you do You will notice sooner than later. I mean I wish I could tell oh you. You'll notice in thirty days or last night. Who knows what it'll be but you will notice an improvement in your success rate and what you're trying to accomplish whether it's getting more readers getting more listeners? Getting more approvals on grant applications getting more job interviews Uh for writing in over letters and resumes and things like that added rating has such an impact on so many facets of life and doing it the right way It will create all types of positive impact for you and the people that you serve. The I partnered with a a wonderful gentleman named Tim. Nulan any W. L. I. N.. Tim Is the artist artist Who who provided so many of these lighthearted Caricatures there in the book right influenced by the way is not boring stuffy textbook it it. It's a lighthearted touch. It speaks to the reader just like you and I are communicating. So I wanted lighthearted light-hearted images to convey some of these plants so so Tim Newlyn his Disney certified artists but but even more importantly he is a He's American ex PAT WHO lives in Denmark his professional career in addition to being. It's such a wonderful graphic artist. He was I mean for for images and cartoons and such. He was a graphic artist. Supporting Five Live Research Universities in Denmark. The the difficulty that Scientific and technical folks have is in communicating mutating their ideas to the board that allocates funds for their particular projects. Like anything else. If you can't convince the fund the the money owners the thunders of the merits of your project you're not GonNa get supported so so these scientists would come to Tim and he would. He would provide a graphic images not cartoons but but graphic images to help convey to the funders the merits of all these brilliant ideas and Tim's Tim's background is professional. Background mirrored. Very much the message of the entire book here. You have to tell your story well On concisely in a language that the audience is going to understand you. You Know Tim. Tim told me that there are so many. Brilliant ideas that that end up on the cutting room floor which is a kind of a tragedy for for for human society simply because the individuals weren't able to convey them and concise language that communicated to the to the audience. Yeah makes you think how many great creative things whether it was books or grant applications or even resumes of people. That would be absolutely amazing to work for your organization. Don't make it through because the it wasn't concise and it wasn't written in a way that caught your attention and it's those little tweaks that really make it possible for people to really we reach levels that you know they dream about and really aim to hit. So I've loved our conversation today and I want to. I know where people can find out more about. You you know about the book and anything else that you're working on today. Yes my right. My website is www right to influence dot net. They can email me at Carla's C. A. R. L. A.. Hey at right to influence dot net And what I'm working on now is is just continuing to get the word out. There and and teaches teaches many workshops as possible. This is an addition to my day. Job By the West will work for the federal government here and I. I loved that job also so I don't sleep a lot because because I have. I have two simultaneous passions. But I guess you know concluding messages that writing powerfully is essential whether you're wanting to develop author retain in house talent or or compete in In Large scale award programs either for Your Corporation or for yourself as an individual Joel defend existing budgets justify more resources. If you have a story that you that you think is is worth telling or working the occasional miracle. You can't do that if you can't write persuasively it's awesome. I'll definitely have that information in the show notes. And and Karl. You're doing amazing amazing work in we've talked about before the show And you know it.

"Look back I've got Carla Bass on Carla. How are you fine thank you very much? Thank you for the opportunity to speak to your to your audience of thank you for being on the show. We're talking about this in the in the pre show one of your many expertise says is about writing and writing really powerful probably powerfully. I should say and the key component in writing a lot of people think that writing is okay. You're writing a blog poster writing a book. No every thing that we do in life is impacted by our writing in our presentation. So tell us a bit about why you got into this and in obviously some of the great benefits of making sure that you write a powerfully to be able to do the things that the you really WanNa do in life certainly early but I have to battle-cries the first battlecry is that powerful writing changes lives because it does as you could be the most talented individual the most qualified for whatever the opportunity is that you seek but if somebody else tells a better story story tells the story better you lose and how I came to that. What for me was a life? Changing realization occurred when I was a lieutenant colonel I retired as a colonel in the air force but when I was Lieutenant Colonel I was the Squadron Commander for a unit in Hawaii. Four hundred eighty wonderful people when I arrived that unit was the most losing in the entire in in the statewide quarterly and award a sorry quarterly and annual award. Nominations wins But the reason they were losing it's not because the young people weren't deserving of these accolades. It's because their bosses couldn't write winning nomination packages and so if these folks weren't winning the awards. They weren't getting the early promotions. They didn't get the pay raises. They couldn't put money away for kids going to college so it was. It was almost Shakespearean tragedy not due to anything of their own fault so I took three days I- sequestered myself in a in a beach beach cabin. I analysed my own writing. And that's how I developed the second part of Of right to influence. I call them my words sculpting tools so I taught my unit how to write off four hundred and eighty of them and all of a sudden we began sweeping the statewide awards. The other air force units asked if I could teach them as well which I gladly did but what what. Just flabbergasted may was. I had no idea of the vacuous deed. Need back then for these types of writing techniques and so for the next fifteen years I ended up teaching my one hour workshop to with thousands of Air Force folks and truly. That's how I demonstrated that powerful riding changes lives the second battlecry. Is that Caracal. Writing is the lifeblood for effective operations for many of the same reasons you have to be able to tell a powerful story to get your your opinion in your marketing pitch. Whatever it is that you're trying to communicate concisely it compellingly and as briefly as possible? I'm a huge fan of of storytelling. And the example you gave where he had a division or unit that was doing amazing things but wasn't getting the recognition that it needed because The reporting mechanism that was there wasn't strong enough to convince the decision makers to say while this is some amazing effort by these individuals is and they need to be recognized by simply changing how you present what you're doing you know. Pardon the pun here but you rose to the ranks and all all of a sudden you started winning Accolades to the point where you other divisions and other branches were reaching out to you and going. Hey you know help us do the same thing. So what that did twofold one you know. It gave the recognition that was well deserved but also strengthened offend other divisions and other branches of the military and this could be applied to the civilian life in organizations and even individually individually You can actually grow your business and grow your your influence in life just by presenting in the right way in the written word is is my personal favourite. Even though as we're talking here out of podcast show I A huge huge fan of the written word and reading reading and writing Is something that has been a pleasure of mine you know for pretty much my entire life. So congratulations to you for that. What and when you see something like that happen and you know you're you have that skill set to be able to transform whether it's a group or an individual to reach their goals you know? What does that do for you? Personally I mean how does that make you feel the word. Lord fulfilling comes to mind but that is such a parish pair of Pale shadow of of what what really are the reaction really is. I received an email a couple of months ago now from an individual. It was an unsolicited. E-MAIL says Colonel Bass. You probably don't remember me but I was one of your senior airman in that particular unit and he said I kept that handbook that you developed for eighteen years it allowed me eight to To Compete and the accepted into officer training school. I recently retired after twenty years as an air force. I officer and I'm now Vice President of Defense Corporation. Because you taught me how to write. That is the wind behind my sales. That's what keeps me going. That's an amazing story. And that's one story. I know for the impact that we have in our lives for the things that we each individually do that impacts other people's lives that there's an impact that we don't even know that we're causing And I am confident that there are countless numbers of people that are in a very similar position for that individual that you know unfortunately has not notified you of of their success but their their financial wellbeing their dreams their goals in life were dramatically impacted by a skill the taught them and that is a superpower. You're right here's another. And this is a very very recent example of that and and and please note this is not me patting myself. On the back this is as an example that we each lead echoes and as you pointed out very often undetected by ourselves but unlinked in an individual shared with me it was the he. He took a photograph of a two page spread in a magazine on the top. Part of the right right hand page was a photograph of me when I was still a colonel handing an award to a young lady Also in uniform it turns out that the young woman is now She is now the owner of a multi-million dollar defence contracting agency agency. I contacted her congratulated on her and was curious about the car. I said that particular photograph in that particular article. She explained that that she had served my leadership techniques as as a woman in a man's world and and that had that had stimulated simulated her inspired her to go on and do her own amazing things and that she keeps that particular photograph on her desk. That's you know we're we're talking on this speechless here. I had no idea so that there's There's a moral lesson to that. Also and that every single day whether we know it or not you are on people are watching and you have the ability to impact people's lives so do your best could could colleague of mine you know often says show up filled up and and what that means to him and and what it means to me is I just be your best The best you can be at that particular moment. Yes we all have ups and downs and good days and days. That aren't as good but knowing that you are potentially a role model to many people Don't let that scare scare you own it and and invest in yourself constantly to learn. Okay how can I make sure that I continue to grow personally personally So that I can continue to benefit others through my actions. My words through my efforts through the things that that I knew whether I'm working for an organization or working for clients or helping family members or or whatnot in the ripple effect is is huge huge. And like you said you had no idea that there is at individual who has an image of you awhile ago on their desk it It's like that's it's simply amazing and I never met that person before or if she did as a long long time ago and you would have never thought about it and that's like wow that's the kind of impact that we have big it lightly and don't be afraid of it but on it and and really seek to improve others. Lives is at the end of the day The the ZIG ziglar quote. You know you know if you WANNA. Na Galway's butcher this. I should print it out and keep it on my desk. You know basically you know how you can do well in life as you know. Help a lot of people get to where they WANNA be which is going to help you get to where you WanNa be when you have that skill and everyone has then. That's that's that's exactly what I am all about now. That's what right to influence and my workshops are all about the it for me. It's a calling now now because I have. I have seen incontrovertible proof that this riding methodology actually does enable people to change their own lives. So so I'm I'm all about teaching people. These skills were actually very very simple to learn. You just have to practice them It's empowering people through the use of their own words through their own message and all they have to learn is how to present it an owned my goodness the magic opportunities that can come come as a result. It's so crucial. So let's talk about right to influence. units you could. Do you know anything then. Obviously you have your the skills that we've talked about briefly But you know what really prompted prompted you to launch this organization and and and what are some of the awesome benefits at The people you work with have seen. I know you've given a couple of examples samples already but curious to see what kind of impact it's causing in today's world with all the noise east that we have here in the constant bombardment of of images and messages tweets. And everything else you know what are what are some great benefits that Your your clients are seeing By going through it sure when when I retired after the thirty years active duty I this right to influence. It's it's in my soul. There's just no simpler way to state so for five years after I retired. I toyed with with doing something with this but there is a huge huge step from a twenty page. A twenty page handbook that was using Air Force examples apples as as templates demonstrate my writing methodologies big difference big jump from that to writing a bona fide book for for or the civilian world with corporate examples and and so forth. It took me. It took me years to get around to doing that. And at one point I was so frustrated traded with myself it was either Carla. Do this seriously and get out in print or flush it and I could not flush it and to use a double negative. I could not not write the book because I had seen the benefit debt that it brings and so. That's that's why that's why I I chose this path Another example very recent of to answer your question about the benefits I I gave a two hour workshop shop to is called leadership. Loudon loudness county out here. In Virginia. The the attendees were leaders from County government government and also county private owned businesses. The response from that was tremendous They said essentially that in two hours wars of a workshop those who attended added added thousands of dollars to their bottom wines because they could now right to win so so this type of writing and the workshops enable people to compound dramatically. The benefits fits that they're already bringing to people and to expand their client base because they can can communicate what their benefits are more. Clearly I I teach a A WORKSHOP TO ACQUIRE A. It's a two day workshop that I give them in Chicago and also in New York City these the attendees are are essentially. Usually young talented millennials who have graduated learner technical skills but our academic system here no longer teaches teaches people how to write concise Chris Compelling and so folks graduate even super talented. Young people graduate -aduated what I what I describe as writing fat not writing skinny and so this particular client has come to me is now the second consecutive year ear because they they gained so much so much benefit from the workshops brings up a.

"Carla Ray and Carla why why you're couples skipping the hospital altogether. It's happening more and more here in the state of Florida. Yeah. And and we have to take to call it a trend because this is still a relatively small percentage about three percent or so in Volusia county of all births over the last fiscal year. But the reason can vary from, you know, wanting more control over your birth process wanting fewer drugs and also cost is a huge factor here because if you think about it, I have had friends tell me that giving birth in a hospital can cost fifty thousand dollars or more at these birth centers. You can do everything that you would not what hospital walk out with your baby for around six to ten thousand dollars. So two huge savings for people who are trying to keep cost in mind when trying to start their family, and I know you're following a local couple who had a terrifying story. Can you let us in on just a little bit of that story Carla? Yeah. And we want to be clear that this couple lives in Volusia county now, but they actually gave birth to their daughter in Texas, and they described it as being a terrible experience. They said that they requested to go to the hospital multiple times during the birth because the woman was hemorrhaging so badly losing a lot of blood, and they were never. Taken to the hospital. That's something that is not supposed to happen and in talking to our local birth centers. It seems that they are really making those transports when necessary to the hospital, so we're going to break that all down. And how many times they've had to take women to the hospital mid delivery tonight in our story. Okay. What time does the story air tonight? Yeah. That's going to be on tonight at five forty five on I witness news. Okay. Look forward to that. Carla. Thank you very much against five forty five WF TV channel nine today.
