Jeff James: We Have to Stop Being Indenial About School Shootings

"The first thing I will tell you in my experience with consulting with school districts the first thing that needs to be gotten rid of is the denial that this kind of thing is going to happen I will go to school districts as a consultant and I also deal with private businesses and I will literally hear people say it's never going to happen here And look there's almost 200,000 public schools in America By the time you add in parochial schools charter schools and private schools you're well over 200,000 There aren't going to be 200,000 school shootings But to think with everything we see that you are immune to it is wrong So the first thing that needs to be gotten rid of is that denial And you're right The second thing is we need to harden these places An interesting article that I read today by a former colleague of ours Donahue talked out that you don't see this in inner city schools because what do initial schools do They're big brick buildings with armed guards and metal detectors So you're not seeing this kind of thing happen very much in their seat unless it's a targeted attack One gang against another But these bad guys do research too We've seen that in these previous shootings that they won't look for soft targets So if you're not doing doing the things layered security the ability to deny access to people who come up and just push the buzzer and say hey I want to come in Hardening your glass And look we know securities can be expensive and it can be inconvenient But if you're not putting some kind of layers in place you're just you're setting yourself up for failure

The One Question Chip Lake Asks Every Potential Candidate

"Campaigns are still about fundamentals. The outside messages, everything else, but there's still an inherent basis. Do you think you might have been an outsider in his messaging, but he was a real insider when it came to understanding money. The team, he had his former his cousin, was a former governor, Georgia. So there's a lot there. This leads really and it's a perfect setup shift where I want to go next for people out there because I want people in this podcast. If you're out there wanting to run for office, from someone lower offices up, especially the congressionals and others. There's a process to doing this. When you look at a campaign. Because I know how people to a candidates do it. You know, oh, I want to go win. I can win, I got you a mama almost been a win, I'm a cousin down the street and says I can do it. But when it comes to campaigns, you as a consultant, your general consultant had on, how do you start laying that out for a candidate? Because I'm concerned that you got consultants now that are seeing it almost like some of these candidates. This is easy. I can make money and I'm not really concerned about the result. Yeah, no question. I mean, you know, as I said, I'm not doing campaigns in elections. This cycle, but in every campaign that I've always done, you know, I would always sit down with a candidate before the campaign began. And I would ask them this question, why are you running? And you can learn a lot about how they answer that question at the beginning of a campaign, right? And that doesn't mean that, you know, that doesn't mean it can candidate has to answer that question. The right way. I mean, it's really, it can be a difficult question to answer because it's a really basic question. And there campaigns are ready for very difficult questions. But, you know, why are you running is it? Is it difficult question, right? Because you need to get to your message in a hurry and if you can't really explain to somebody while you're running in 30 to 45 seconds and kind of build upon it, then you need to refine that. You need to learn how to do

Political Consultant Chip Lake on the 'Outsider Effect'

"Chip, have you noticed like I have over the past say three or four election cycles that the idea of going from zero in politics to NFL, you know, so to speak, we've seen it campaigns, congressional campaigns, governors, campaigns. Has that become more of a trend than it used to be and why do you think that is? It's become a huge trend and it's largely due to one word. And that word is outsider, right? And, you know, being an outsider used to be a disadvantage when you, when you ran for the first time, it used to be an advantage in campaigns and elections to have experience as an elected official. And that's much less so now, right? I mean, 15 years ago, even ten, 15 years ago, if you were a local elected official and you were running for higher office, you know, you had inherent advantages over an opponent who was running for the first time. And those advantages are gone now in today's environment.

Politics: It Ain't Personal, It's Just Business

"One of the things that I learned from you a little bit, but also I had known coming into this because from my background is people know, there's a certain time you have to use an especially with politics and I think it would be a good idea for Republicans, Democrats, anybody in between in campaigns that in the especially in the last weeks of a campaign or even in the first weeks of a campaign to remember the adage of Clint Eastwood, it ain't. Personal, it's just business. And because the motion side, we're going to come back and talk about some other things. But let's get the last four or 5 days. Isn't it? Describe how tough it is in those last couple of weeks to keep the emotion out of decisions that you need to make in those last 14 to 21 days coming into an cycle. So the toughest thing in campaign does, you know, these campaigns are tough, they're grinding, as you know, as any candidate that's run for office knows. When you get down to crunch time and you get down to the 7 or 8 day period, which is what we're in right now, you're tired, you're stressed. There's not enough hours in the day to accomplish what all you want to accomplish. And so it's very tough to keep the emotions out. I mean, for anybody that's been in this business for any length of time, they'll tell you, it's one of the toughest things, one of the toughest time periods there is. Now it's also, it's also, you know, the time in the campaign where you can really see the light at the end of the tunnel. So you know, you know, you're going to find out on election day, how you did. I mean, running campaigns and elections, being candidates, being consultants, being on a campaign team is unique. It's not like you can watch film on Tuesday, figure out what you did wrong and go have another election, the following Tuesday. And then, you know, and have a 16 game season, right? I mean, you know, depending on how long the election is, I mean, you know, they can be a year and a half a year and 9 months long. You have one game day. And so everything that you have done up until that point, you know, is to make sure you maximize what you're doing on

How Chip Lake Became a Political Consultant

"Let's start off chip. One sort of give a little bit of your background and how you got started and all this. And the good part about it is almost like up front here to sort of keep us both out. Neither one of us are in this cycle really. I mean, we know campaigns and we've helped some others, but for the most part, chip and our experiencing something neither one of us experienced in a long, long time, and that is the ability to just talk about these campaigns without being indirectly involved in them. And I think I know from my perspective, it's been a refreshing. I know talking to you if it has been for you as well. But how did you get into this? It's a great question, Doug. So as you had mentioned, I went to auburn and I was to age myself. I was an auburn in the early to mid 90s. And long story short was a member of the college Republicans at auburn. And we had a state party chairman from an adjacent state, Georgia, come down to speak to us at one of our chapter meetings on, I think it was Tuesday night. Because his daughter was a member of our was a member of our college Republicans group. And that person was rusty Paul, who was the state chairman at the time for the Georgia Republican Party. He since went on to become a state senator. And now he is mayor of Sandy Springs. And I walked up to him after the after he gave a speech and I asked him if he had any internships available. And he said, absolutely call, you know, call me, you know, next week and we'll get you set up. And the reality is the rest is history. I was a political science and public administration major down there and I really didn't know what I wanted to do for a living. And, you know, I'm 49 years old right now, and I still feel like I'm in that position, you know? I mean, as you mentioned, this is my first cycle. Really, since I was a teenager, where I haven't been directly involved in the campaign. And it's been it's been a lot of fun to be able to watch this from the

Naomi Wolf Discusses Her New Book 'The Bodies of Others'

"Right, so the thesis of the book, it's kind of a sequel to my 2008 book, the end of America, which in which I looked at tyrannies in history, whether the tyrants were on the left or on the right, turns out it really didn't much matter. Because they always took the same tense steps. And I warned at that time that we could lose our democracy in the United States. And I kept up the same warnings as you may know, administration after administration, it doesn't matter, left, right, it didn't matter when Obama was droning American citizens. I spoke out against it when he didn't close Guantanamo, I spoke out against it. So I was consistent throughout it's a nonpartisan issue, whether we uphold our constitution or trans partisan issue. So the bodies of others, I really wrote it about this recent past, this current historical moment, 2020 to the present. And about the pandemic, but basically my argument is that. What happened was that a handful of bad actors at a global level, notably tech companies, China, the World Economic Forum, which I thought was a conspiracy theory till I actually read Klaus Schwab's book and listened to his speeches. And it was right there. And using pharma exploited the pandemic in order to recreate the world in a way that was targeted at killing off the human, the human advantage. And what do I mean by that? So I have an unusual bio in that I've been a reporter for 35 years. I've also been a political consultant to a presidential and a vice presidential campaign. So I understand how politics unfolds at that level. And I'm now CEO of a successful tech company. So I realized pretty early on. Certainly when in March of last year, when they started announcing vaccine passports that what these policies did, which are so unscientific was to kill off the things that human beings do better than digital

The Washington Regime Is in Both Parties...

"Look, you look at what's happening nationwide for our national audience. A lot of people right now understand that the regime as we call it on our program quite often is of both parties. And you look at the issues that they get most animated about. It's not even, you know, the transgender issue kind of they get a little upset about here and there. The pro life thing. But if you really want to see the Washington regime, all of a sudden go into kind of a frenetic tailspin, start talking about having a prudent foreign policy, restricting immigration and maybe putting some tariffs on China. That more than anything else just gets them over the edge. And those three issues in particular are the ones that actually the Republican base are demanding the most. I talk about the muscular class, as you know, Andrew a lot on our program here. And that really is Ohio. Ohio is the muscular class. Ohio are people or that shower before work and shower after work. They make things with their hands. It's not the managerial consultant class that has destroyed so many different aspects of our country. And so that's really what kind of on the referendum here, not to mention that JD is incredibly pro life and against all the kind of transgender nonsense that we're seeing of the pushing of puberty blockers and all that garbage in our country. So that's really something I think that's important. That's why

Pennsylvania's Senate Race Will Stretch the Democratic Party Faithful

"One of the issues that we talked about having with the Democrats is they're policy issues of the far left. And basically it's very progressiveness. It's not matching up with a lot of the country. And in that you got fatter money lamb. John fetterman and Connor lamb for the most part who are running in this primary federman is way out in front right now. And federman is if you go to most I've talked to some democratic consultants, they would tell you that fetterman is going to be the harder one to try and keep this seat in some ways, although Pittsburgh Pittsburgh and Philadelphia and other parts of the state will go heavily for the current lieutenant governor. It is a race that is going to stretch the Democratic Party faithful. We'll see how the Pennsylvania is not a New York. It's not a California. It's not an Illinois. They're going to have to see how a fetterman would play, although he is one statewide. He's now going to have to play on a different stage. Conor lamb came out of the Pittsburgh area, a very well funded. He won the House seat. He has been one of the consistent, more moderate blue dog Democrats, if you would, which seemed to have played in the state of Pennsylvania very well, but so far it is just not. Fetterman's money advantage his notoriety and others have just played. And he is well on a double digit lead right now in this democratic primary. I do not see lamb overcoming that and it sets up an interesting race, whether it be federman and McCormick or Fatima in Oz, that one is going to be a one to race.

Fact-Checking Police Brutality

"One of the reasons I like the work of Chris rufo is that in places like city journal and elsewhere, he does a really good job in a concrete way documenting how woke culture plays out in major corporations and also in the media. But here's a very interesting story that comes out of Reuters. This is the Thomson Reuters corporation a massive media conglomerate that at one time had a reputation for kind of objectively and critically presenting the news and letting people decide for themselves. Well, no more. Reuters has gone woke in a big way. And Zach kriegman turns out to have become its latest victim. Now here's a guy who has got terrific credentials. He's got a BA in economics from Michigan. He's got a JD from Harvard. He's got lots of experience with high-tech startups. He's essentially an econometrics research consultant and he's been with Reuters for 6 years where he's in involved in statistics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and software engineering. In fact, his title in the beginning of 2020 was director of data science at Reuters. Now, interestingly, when the George Floyd business began in 2020, this guy kriegman began to see all kinds of claims being made, not just broadly in the culture, but at Reuters. And he realized that these claims really don't stand up to any kind of empirical evidence. And so what he did was he began his own research project to sort of look into them. And he began to examine all kinds of statements that were being made by his own media cooperation and found them to be completely faulty. Now, what kind of statements are we talking about? Well, first of all, this idea that the police disproportionately target black victims. And kriegman found that to be simply not true. The police are just as likely to identify white perpetrators, not victims, but perpetrators. I'm sorry. And in fact, the system is slightly biased against whites that was this conclusion about after carefully looking at the data. Another data point is the claim that Reuters was uncritically transmitting that somehow defunding the police and cutting police budgets has had no effect on effective policing. And this guy was like, really, let's look at the evidence. Well, it turns out that there is an effect. And you see a kind of direct correlation between the cutting back of police programs and the soaring of crime

How Do We Break Away From the Current Cycle of Politics?

"I'm very concerned that people are wanting to hear what they want to hear and it's led to this polarization into the sense that they believe because they're getting their information, you know, basically to tickle their ears as the old biblical term. Right. How are we going to break back out of that? I mean, because right now, it's working and as you know from your time at faith and freedom and more majority for them, me is running campaign. Your consultants, your all your groups around, they're going to go to what works until it doesn't work anymore. How are we going to break this out from a governing standpoint? Because that's what I see as the lacking pace now. Campaigns will become very coordinated and we do it. It's like we fight the battles to get to the game and then when the game comes, we're trying to find the battle to get to the game again. Yeah, I think it's a great I agree with you. I think it's a big problem. There's kind of been a dumbing down, you know, and there's a lot of reasons for that. Some of which are structural. I mean, I do think Doug that the advances in data analytics and mapping have enabled us on both sides. To draw congressional districts that are now so reliably partisan and one direction or another. You know, when I was coming up longer ago than I care to mention, you know, it was not really like that. Districts were drawn, I mean, yes, you knew voting behavior, but outside of that, you didn't have a lot of information on voters beyond what was on the voter file. Which was basically age, race, and what party primary they voted in. Today, you know, you can track with an algorithm, you know, hundreds of data points. And the result is, is that, you know, a combination of members of Congress wanting safe seats, legislators, I know this may come as a shock to some, but state legislators have a way of drawing districts that they can then run in. No. Yeah, it happens. And the big data and the data science, I mean, I think we're down to 20 or 30 genuinely competitive seats in the country.

In it Robert De Niro plays a political consultant who gets called in by a president who's been caught having sex with a campfire girl in The White House. So in order to the election is in two weeks, in order to distract people, they make up a fake war with Albania and then they film the war and they have Kirsten Dunst and they dress her up as a peasant running with a bag of Cheetos, but later they Photoshop it to be her doll. And they just, they manufacture this crisis out of thin air. That is exactly what they did with COVID. It's what they did with George Floyd. It's what they did with Jussie Smollett with Russia collusion, it's what they're doing now with the Ukraine and I guarantee you if that tragic war ends tomorrow, the very next day, we're going to learn that systemic racism lies behind putting things in alphabetical order. And that using alphabetical order is a continuation of slavery and it was invented by a slaveholders conspiracy and the Catholic Church is tied up in it and we all have to repent using alphabetical order. Now, you think I'm kidding. I just took that from a real headline that said that the Dewey decimal system is systemically racist.

It was such a boring document to the judge from Durham saying there might be a conflict of interest between the lawyers representing, you know, Hillary's spy, Michael sussman, but on page two, the atomic bombshell that an individual called Rodney joffe's company wasn't just surveilling president Trump's apartment and Trump Tower, but The White House when we worked in it because quote, quote, from the documents, they had a sensitive arrangement to provide Internet cyber services to The White House. How is this not being picked up by the GOP? Talk to us, man. This is how the deep state works. They utilize national security standards that utilize vendors, they utilize private sector and government sponsored spying, private sector and government sponsored leaks. Seb, you'll remember each and every night when the mainstream media would say that we were Russian agents, we were Putin's lawyers and public relations consultants. And we shared with the American people that the reality was that it was Hillary Clinton. And the Clinton campaign there was engaged in corruption, criminal activity, collusion with Russia, and then utilizing the DoJ, the FBI, the national security apparatus to really I think author these leaks through the mainstream media to try to smear the president and the presidency. So in these Durham indictments, we see that they needed two things. A lie and then they needed so the content of the lie and then the distribution channel. And so they used Russians and they used illegal spying techniques to try to generate the lies and the suspicion. And then they used these DoJ and FBI leaks to get the media to fall

Let's just get some of these myths out of the way now. So is there really such a thing as a new candidate? No. I mean, I hear that every day. Every single day, you know, every candidate for office thinks they're different. And you know, there are nuances, you know, from candidate to candidate and you know I've met some very different candidates across my time, but last time. Buddy, I'm down. Yeah. I've met some special ones. But you know, they've got they've got to recognize that these races are formulaic. There is a science behind it. There is a way to at the get go kind of make a determination of what is a viable candidate and what is not a viable candidate. And as much as you think you're going to run a different campaign or you're going to run a different style campaign. There are tried and true methods by which voters are persuaded to vote for a candidate.

"Trainer and business consultant at the shoulder. Group with when people thrive companies thrive podcast. So the last few weeks. And there i say. The last many months have really put into perspective how we respond and react to situations. I've talked before about the difference between fast thinking and slow thinking. The fast thinking is where we re act immediately. It's that lizard brain the amid the la the fight or flight response contrast that with slow thinking. Which is we do our best to not react immediately. We slow down. We think we take everything into consideration and then we might respond or take action. We have to get out of our heads. We spend all this time in our heads. And it's mostly that fast thinking and it gets us into trouble when we are in that fast thinking that constantly responding reacting where is the piece we do not find peace in constant reaction. I believe we find peace in quiet contemplation in not reacting taking our time to thank observe analyse reflect and then take the best action because then we are doing it from that place whatever that place maybe as opposed to. Oh my. gosh this happened. And i have to react like this. I have to send the email. I have to make the phone call. I have to make my stance known. And wow that really does not serve us. There's this concept of be do have as opposed to have do be in that latter concept of have do be. It's if i have everything. I need and desire and i do things i take action accordingly. Then i will be the person i want to be flipped. Sat around to be do have how about i be the person i would like to be. And then i will take action from that place. And then as a result i will have the things situations circumstance people in my life that i desire when we are constantly reacting. That's in that do phase. We need to go to that. Be.

"Consultant at the shoulder group with when people thrive companies Thrive podcast. I believe I have talked before about the book The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. And when I read that book years ago the metaphor, he used stayed with me until this very day probably will for the rest of my life. In his book he talks about how each of us is in our own movie. We are the writer director producer main actor or actress. And everyone else around us and in the world is our Supporting Cast. I love this metaphor because I think it's accurate and I took it a step further and I imagine each of us walking down the street and it's as if we are in our individual separate bubbles of our own movies, so we're walking down the street dead in our own movies playing our own movies writing directing producing them. And each of us is a supporting actor or actress. So that means if I pass you on the street, you are supporting actor or actress in my movie. On the other hand for you. I pass you on the street and I am simply a supporting character in your movie. This is why. We make up a whole lot of stories about things. That person hasn't responded to my email in three days. I must have offended him. He must be mad at me. What a jerk he is and we go on and on and on and on because it's about us in our movie The only reason that somebody would not respond would be because of us. It's all about us and we can't help that because we are in that bubble. Often we find out. Oh something happened. Maybe something good. Like they won a trip to Hawaii or perhaps something bad. Most of the time when they come back to us the truth of what they tell us. Greatly differs from the stories. We've made up in our heads. Those stories we have made up in our heads are a result of the movie. We have running not just in the background, but sometimes in the foreground. Again in our movies. We are the writer director producer and main star. And because the movie is continually running we are continually writing the script. So everything that happens needs to be integrated into the script of our movie human nature. We cannot really dead eliminate that from how we operate in the world. what we can do is be conscious of That we have this movie running in our heads and we are making up stories. We are writing the scripts as a result. Let's go to Advanced movie making class and realize other.

"This is Don Schuler certified trainer and business consultant at the shooter group with when people thrive companies Thrive podcast. Several weeks ago we were doing one of our bi-weekly strategy meetings with one of our corporate clients leadership team and what came out was how often very overwhelmed and stressed they were they were getting ready to head into their busy as quarter. And of course, this is after months and months of doing business differently because of covid-19. What we heard from them ended up becoming pretty commonplace with most of our clients and it was this phenomenon of life every day feeling like they couldn't get to the things that were really important. They were constantly putting out fires responding to emails or calls phone calls unexpected Zoom meetings along with of course regularly scheduled meetings. They felt like they were spending all day in their email and their slack channels and their teens accounts and never getting anything done. We try to introduce the concept of blocking out time to work on those important projects or that off on the business kind of activity and tasks. Shutting off email and the phones during that time. But it's really hard. When you have this concept or you feel like your clients and customers have this expectation that you are available that you are there and ready to serve that you are approachable that you are responsive. As much as this modern world with all of its technology. Can serve us and be helpful for us. I think what happens is we end up becoming a slave to that very same technology that is supposed to be free us up. Since we have our smartphones with our email on it and our smartphones seem to live next to us all the time. Then we are immediately accessible via email or a phone call or a text or some other direct message. Because we have this amazing technology right here in our phones. How many times does it happen to you? Because it has happened to me multiple times that someone sends me an email and.

"Is dawn, Schuler certified trainer and Business Consultant at the Shaw Group with the people, thrive companies thrive podcast. Today I want to talk about having the hard conversations. The reason we call them hard conversations is because they are hard to have. We don't want to have them. And so many of us avoid. Those conversations. We say things like I hate conflict or I avoid conflict at all cost. And that is true. The fact that there is a cost. First? Let's talk about what some of those hard conversations might be about. You're not doing enough. I'm upset by filling the blank. I don't like what you're doing. I don't like how you're treating me. What you're doing. Is Offensive to others. No usually in response to a request. And of course, probably one of the hardest conversations to have in the workplace anyway is. You're fired. Or we're letting you go. Most of those topics didn't sound pleasant they. Hence we avoid. Conversations. We stuff the feelings. We have around them, which makes it worse? I use the analogy of trying to hold a beach ball. Under the pool, water. If, you can imagine that. You're in a swimming pool. Have one of those cheap thin plastic inflated beach falls. And you're trying to pushing in submerged under the water. Of course what happens? It doesn't just resist being submerged. Eventually. If you let it go, it will explode out of the water. Now that's a fun game to play in the pool. But not so fun a- game with one's emotions. That is what happens when we try to push down our feelings. Either logically. Well that doesn't make sense. Rhino doesn't seem to make sense that I'm feeling this way, or it will get better, or I know they didn't mean it rhino. They don't know any better. Our feelings are just as valid. As the logic king out. Of something that's going on. But when we try to resist them. Submerged them so to speak. They will burst out and explode out.

"Chiller certified trainer and business consultant at the shore group. With the people thrive company size podcast. A few weeks ago, my business partner fellow consultant and has been mark. was on a strategy session with one of our clients. He is a leader of a department. With staff underneath him. And as with most managers and leaders. There are challenges that pop up all the time. Luckily. Our client has us on staff so to speak to help work out some of these challenges. Well the topic of this particular call was. How do you empower your staff? You want them to do their jobs. You want them to do them well. You want them to be able to be self, sufficient and independent. But. How do you really make that happen? A manager's job is two-fold. You have to manage the. Which means you are responsible for their results. You may also have your own duties that are above, and beyond the actual managing of others. So, not only. Do you have your own duties to perform and perform well? But you're also tasked with. Overseeing the your team. Department. Does a good job. Performs well and delivers the results they're supposed to. So part of your job is to make sure that your team in staff department. Gets the results that they're supposed to? How do you make that happen? Well some managers. Go the tyrannical micromanaging out. Where they're poor. Little employees cannot make a move unless it is approved. By their manager. We wholeheartedly believe that is extremely inefficient for one. If. You have to oversee everything. He might as well do it yourself. It's also taking time away from the other job. Duties that you are supposed to be performing. Even more importantly. However is the fact that you are not allowing your people. To have the unity. To shine. To be in their own brilliance. To grow and evolve and develop. That is. One of the roles we believe of great leaders and managers. The you do what ever it is you can do. To make sure..

"Bowl This is Dawn Schuler certified trainer and business consultant at the shooter when we talk about employee engagement as a two way street and one of our pieces of the pie is communication what we mean okay that is there needs to be communication from both sides it's not just the manager telling the employees what he expects what the zolt he wants our it's also the employees speaking about the conditions of her workplace of priorities needing more guidance in certain areas or less guidance and and certain other ones it's that two-way dance of communication and feedback and it's both sides so for example we know of young employee who is doing an amazing job in her position she's been in the position for about six months she's even gotten employee of the month for two months once in a row and she feels completely overwhelmed she is stressed she leaves most days feeling like she's a failure because there are so many things left undone on her to do list she's being asked if certain projects have been completed and she's trying to get them completed by the deadline Bayer supposed to be completed the problem is things keep getting piled onto her plate and she's not saying anything part of it is because she expects from herself we all have very high expectations of ourselves don't we that she should is be able to get it all done she could work faster more efficiently she could come up with a better system or a process to get it all done and the fact of the matter is it may not be that she can actually get it all done there's a story of when and my husband mark before we got married but we were an item we were we were a thing we were a couple decided to move from California to Maryland and so he drove out here and his car full of stuff and six months later we flew back out to California to get the rest of us from a storage unit we gave ourselves three days to clean out the storage unit and then drive the Penski truck across the United States from California Maryland we had it all planned out wonderfully well the problem is this job that we had lauded three days to was a five day job and no matter how we sliced it no matter how much harder or longer we worked this five day job was going to take five days not three not four but five at one point probably by day two and a half when we realized we aren't finishing this tomorrow even if we stayed up all night worked around the clock there is no way we can finish it we said well maybe it's a four day job and so we get into day three same thing it really doesn't matter if we work all night long and into the next day day four it's not going to get done it really needs to be a five day job and by the end of the five days we got the entire storage unit cleaned out into the truck it was it was a huge endeavor and while that was not a great experience a lot of stress all of it doesn't matter how I have arranged things or scheduled things to complete particular project this project is going to take as long as it takes an just because I've arbitrarily chosen three days because that's the amount of time I thought we had it was a five day job and it was outside of our control now says we had having that experience taught me I only have so much control over hosting duties enrolls it's actually not possible for her to get it all done.

"And business consultant at shula the group with the people thrive companies thrive podcast today. I wanna talk about the long game versus the short game and you probably would agree with me that if you had to choose. Are you going for the long haul argue going for sustainability. Are you going for lasting into the future. Are you going for the war. Are you just going for how much you can get now the the battle so to speak etc and you'd probably say yeah going for the long game. It's the long game. What does it really are. Your actions really short game actions or long game actions. Give you an example. There is a local company company whose focus was on providing their service to larger companies and of course there's there's more impact when you are working with larger companies and corporations because then you're reaching more people in that company in that corporation and of course it's more lucrative for the business. That was the focus that was the mission. That was the goal all of the sudden uh-huh this company. Let's call them a._b._c. Widgets decided to go after individuals walls and try to sell their services and product to individual employees with the hopes that the employees would then go to management went to the corporate leadership and say hey wouldn't it be great if you provided this great service and product to all the employees employees to me that completely sir shifted the focus from the long game witches his let's go out and make more of an impact create more revenues be able to spread the word about what we're doing in a much bigger way with our long game versus his onesie tuesay one by one short game and let's look at that if you've got this great product or service and you're going to sell it to company for use of all their employees. Aren't you going to spread the word faster. If that company of say two hundred employees they're using it and then they're telling their friends and then of course those friends could go to their own corporate leadership and say hey that other company has this we want this to but but that word spreads much faster as opposed to john smith buys the product or service and yes maybe maybe he tells five friends or tries to talk to management but that's really slow as opposed to two hundred people who are doing that and i have to say. I was really flabbergasted by that very left. Turn shift in <unk> focus and market and maybe it's because it's easier. It's easier to sell to an individual that individual is going to make that sales decision decision that buying decision probably more quickly and easily then accompany on behalf of its entire workforce and i know now our company the shooter group we work with larger companies corporations and organizations. Is it a longer sale cycle absolutely is it sometimes frustrating to get to the decision makers you betcha but when we they do get in the door and we do sell our services. Are we making a bigger impact absolutely and that's one of the reasons why we keep our eye on the long game now every organization whether it's profit or nonprofit needs to be able to be in the black even a nonprofit. They are still running a business. It just looks a little different friend from a for profit business. Every organization's goal is to have their bottom line being the positive live not in the negative and with that being said then there's the focus on the long game. Sometimes there is a short game because you do need to bring in revenues on a quick basis. You just have to make sure that your short game doesn't completely replace place your long game..

I've read it twice. It's my bible because now before I go into a meeting, I'm gonna read it, and I think it's something needs to be shared with a world. And I'm really excited to have leeann with me today to tell us more about books, so the aunt woke up, thank you, Don. I appreciate you having me on your podcast absolutes honor, because I've listened to some of your other ones, and I know you always say having the right people in the right seat in which seat, they sit in, in a meeting can make a difference to look lever. You are. Love that love that. You're right. Right. See, I have to tell you this. I was in a meeting couple of weeks ago. I read your book twice, and the way it was set up, I was thinking, okay. I don't like the seats that are available. So I took the best one, according to what you share in, in the book, and, and then we needed to Edwards here. So the cheer that I wanted the seat that I wanted got placed and it was amazing how different I felt sitting in the right seat for the dynamics of that particular meeting. And I thought, oh I can't wait till the end because I just felt Mayan tire energy shift now that I read your book. I know why that is I might have had that same feeling but not really recognize it understood why now I am seeing y so leeann toast a little bit about the book. Why, why might think that this is such a gold mine? What's in it? Well, I the reason I wrote the book I started in tier designs, I've always been in the corporate world helping people with different companies in designing they're office spaces. And of course, every office space is going to have a meeting space of some type, whether it's a conference, a large multipurpose, small, small, conference rooms and private offices. So I I always designed all of that in early on in my career. And especially for designers, they don't teach us. What is what I discovered more input in the book, so, you know, you design these spaces and not ever really you'd think about how they're gonna use them, but not the full purpose, and then I went into sales, and in my company creatively communicate, it's all about how you say it in the reason, being is in sales have gone through a lot of sales training and they don't you know, in the in the process. It's all excellent. They don't teach you how to say it in a specially. How just where you sit in accordance with your prospect can make a difference in your sale and started to learn this through trial in air in the nest studying body, language you learn even more, I thought where is all of this is not in one spot in its things that we do every day in every sales in every meeting, and yet, we do it. Subconsciously unconsciously in it can affect the outcome. So that was kinda reason where what I would mention it to some people like, oh, that's brilliant. Never thought about that, and doing more and more research and just pulling it all together. And putting it in one place. So I've had a lot of fun. Putting it together as well. And it's just things like tell people, you know, sales the arc in science of sales is difficult is can be fun can be frustrating. And when you sit down with a client just where you sit if I can get you twenty percent closer to the close of a sale, then why not pay attention where you sit is if. I think I can get you on the path to success before you ever start your first word in essence. So it's like sitting closer to success. Yes. Oh, I like that. One too can also. That's a great one. So is this primarily just for sales people? No, I pulled together. There's it starts with conference meeting. So if your leader in a company or even a small business owner, you're going to have different conference meetings, and it's, it's one chapter is just on that I have one on sales meetings, and then what about large event meeting? So if you're a speaker, you can utilize a lot of information when you're tending, there's also some key key tips in there. And even if you're a teacher, it's how we present in a room. So there's different research that I found as well that where you sit in a classroom where your student does will have an impact on their learning potential in the retention, and then go into private offices in a lot of people don't realize that their furniture is the non verbal language that before people ever enter their office away. It's arranged enough for it. South gives away their leadership style, unless they heir to the office in heaven. Say, but in most companies that I've worked with over the last thirty plus years. A lot of people have say or they're gonna personalize it so they in their leadership style. They send nonverbal languages again before meeting ever starts, whether it's with an employee or a potential prospect on or potential employee of bender. They're sending these signals and a lot of times, we don't think about what signals or sending and we can do it with the furniture and the way, we're going to meet with the people, and then I go into restaurant meetings, so people still will have some restaurant means if they take a prospect out. And then I just threw a chapter discount have some fun about homemade home entertaining. Is it affects everything of where you sit in accordance in your purpose of your meeting? Absolutely. And enjoy your book. I just I didn't realize that there were so many applications. Right. And, and really I mean now this is in my head, and so it really is effecting time. I said, like, okay, what's the best place? What's the purpose? I think that's one of the brilliant things about your book, is you really delve into what's the purpose of the meeting was the purpose of this as and like you said, what you said, this is how I took it in the tone that you want to convey love by DEA of if you're a manager, and you're having meetings in your office kind of leader, what kind of manager argue and how you are arrangement of, of your office, your setup chairs can either support that or hinder it. And if you're not. Unaware of it can be detrimental yet any. No, you can walk into office politics, if you don't know the office, politics, actually a conference meeting any pending upon size of. I've sold some furniture whether some really large conference room. So typically, they're probably six eight all ten to twelve in that range, there, some that are even larger where you may have twenty to thirty people in a room in some of these large corporations. And, you know, the politics are really shown in bows, Europe, in the DC area and government is still the deep polit political structure is very strong. I'm here in Austin, Texas, and it's interesting all the, the most of the clients. Now call on are more the startups more technology and they, they have their work environment. More typical to what you'd expect Google or Facebook. So it's more that open environment airy collaborative it's a whole different environment. And when I started thirty years ago in Minneapolis with IBM and three m you know, the big Blue's that everything was very structured, and you want that authoritative in von manager. Her and boy, if you got that corner office men, you arrived, and you wanted everyone to mental it out. It's, you know, we have some CEO's, I wanna sit right in the middle of all their employees in its wide open environment. So it's just interesting. The difference and all of that conveys in the culture, I know that you, you understand cultural, the culture of, of different businesses and some, some people thrive in that and some don't and again where they sit in accordance to that can make a difference. For was lifting to you reminded me of a TV show called lie to me, and I think it was on and maybe early to mid two thousands, and I can't think of the, the guy's name that was the main dive he studied, he called micro expressions. He could tell if somebody was was lying or the truth for expressions with one episode where they were, they were dealing with a Japanese company, and he waited as they all came in to see some of those politics dynamics based on where they sat kind of this deference, they might you know, because we're going to defer to the, to the manager the leader in this meeting, and that just made me think of that's Utah, top gang made me think of that particular episode in, in light of me. And it made me think why now I wanna go. Back and watch it. See if there's anything about seating, and placement because what you're saying, as you could observe a room a meeting and based on, perhaps where people unconsciously subconsciously take their seats might reveal something about where they are the pecking order, how they feel is that would you agree with that? I definitely agree with it. And I go into some of that in the book so people can understand some of that. And by the way, I love that show lie to me because the micro expressions as you're talking to try to remember the gentleman who started all that in, in the name is escaping me, 'cause I've done a lot of reading and research on that to any goes into the body language. And so, when you walk into a conference room, you know, if you're the leader in, you're sitting what I call the power position. So at the end of the table, a typical rectangle table, you're gonna be sitting on the short end and you can see everyone and depending upon the length of the table where people sit if they don't have a sign position. Where they sit also reveals a lot on a personality. So you and I are certified in personality science. So we know that the people who say, if they said in the middle of the table, they wanna be amongst their friends. They, you know they're going to be the big team player and that tells us something about their personnel. They don't wanna be out front. They just wanna be the team player and what can't we just all get along? We know. If you have the person who, you know, they're really strong thinker their base more on the facts in the knowledge in they want to observe in. They talk that much 'cause they're more observing in, when there's a point to be made they'll make it if it doesn't make sense, they won't so there if I'm the leader sitting at one end. They're probably going to be sitting towards the other end. They don't need to be by me. They're just gonna kinda listen. They probably they don't need that the strong. I contact and if you have the person who is more out front, we like to call that action person, the, they're more talent. They need to be heard. They're gonna sit closer to the leader. And especially if they want to be the next leader in the company, they're going to be sitting to the right or the left of that person that power position. And then if the if it's someone that is more into organization, and systems, while depending upon their purpose and role of at meeting, they're going to be probably more strategic of where they sit in probably want to sit closer to the leader and be able to support them in that regard or they might. On the other end because what's interesting too, is depending upon your company politics, if you have a, the main leader on one end of the table, and then on the other end, they're supportive now you really have this balance in leadership, and the two can help the meeting flow and depending upon if you want to persuade on new ideas, they can help that in the conference. Meaning is things that maybe you don't think about where you want people to sit, and especially if you know you have someone that is going to be against your idea. You're gonna have opposition. So, you know, I also think of been in city council or in some of those places where, if you if you know, you're gonna have some of that to deal within your meeting while where you strategically sift those people is going to affect the way the outcome is gonna is gonna Kerr because if you haven't defensive in there, they're already fighting against each other. When they sit down before they say a word it's back to sport. Support your end goal. Well so there's not to manipulate. That's not. Necessarily the purpose..

"consultant" Discussed on Organizational Success Strategies with Business Consultant and Corporate Trainer Dawn Shuler

"Don Schuler certified trainer and business consultant at the Shula group. The people thrive companies thrive podcast. Google is always touted as one of the best most innovative most creative most successful companies as you probably know they make the top of the list of the best companies to work for in terms of employee ratings low employee turnover company culture and other criteria. Part of what sets them apart, I believe, is that innovation that spirit to let's do it the way nobody else does. Let's do something. Nobody's even heard of. So they read a lot of projects in experiments always with that I to innovation. Well, a few years ago, they ran a project called project oxygen to prove the managers weren't really needed that, in fact, they just take up space and breathe air. Maybe that's why it's called project oxygen. I'm not sure. Actually, what they found was that it ended up being a disaster. People felt adrift. They didn't have direction. They didn't have guidance. They weren't expected to and they didn't expect of themselves and they probably didn't have the skills and the tools needed to be innovative in creative, and set their own direction priority and kind of self start. So they scrapped that project and instead focused on. Well, what makes a really good manager, and they came up with the top ten characteristics of the very best managers, along with than what should be expected of managers. So here those top ten characteristics. Number one be a good coach. If you've heard that whole adage, you can give a fish and you'll feed him for a day or you can teach Amanda fish, and then he can fish and be fed for life. Part of that is, is coaching. And what you're doing when you're coaching your investing time you're investing your you're carrying your empathy with your employees because you want them to succeed. You care about their self development. You might be surprised at how important the ability to evolve in grow and develop is important, especially to millennials these days. Coaching is about that. Whole teaching. It's not about doing it for them. It's guiding them. Number two. Second characteristic. That makes a great manager. They empower teams and don't micromanage. Oh my goodness. I mean, you've probably been micromanaged, right? I know I have unfortunately, I've probably also done it a really work at not doing that because one, I don't have time to I need to delegate and three. I want someone else to be able to step up to the plate in perform well and get kudos vehicle to celebrate. And so when you empower the people on your team in your department, in your company as a whole. To do their job and do their job. Well and handsome latitude. That is everything. We actually talk about this in our employee engagement, collaborative model that on the managers in the leader side is empowering. This is another reason why I really liked this project besides the one that failed than the one that. Oh, okay. We'll hear the best characteristics of the best managers that idea of empowerment, because it's so fits in with our own belief system, the third characteristic, is that the best managers, create an inclusive team environment showing concern for success and wellbeing. 'nother some personality types who work better independently. Don't need a lot of collaboration from others, but there are always times when that's needed on that. Best manager is going to be the one who looks at her team of all of its individuals all of its parts. What are the unique qualities of those individuals? And then how can she the manager, the leader bring them altogether for the best effect the best results? When you start looking at people as to what makes them unique and wonderful and their strengths then they start to feel needed in valued for what they're good at. And then when everybody feels that they are. Providing for the whole for the good of the company, go to the department, whatever that team is then. That whole collaborative atmosphere amps right up. Fourth characteristic be productive and results oriented. Another concept that we believe in here at the Schuler group and that we coach and consultant clients through is forward motion. A befo kissing on the solution rather than the problem. Yes, we may need to understand why something occurred. Why something happened? So is to prevent it. But that's part of the solution. Right. How can we prevent this? How do we fix this? How do we make it better? All of that is going to move the organization forward to be productive. And about the results about the solutions, the fifth characteristic of a great manager is to be a good communicator, both sides, listening and sharing information. This is another piece of our collaborative employee engagement model, which is the communication on both sides to give feedback to listen to share for both managers and their subordinates alike. Both pieces are necessary. Listen share share in listen. Sixth characteristic have a clear vision and strategy for the team, we call this the deeper. Why and everything has a deeper? Why, why does this department exist? Why is this project being done? Why did Google do this experiment? What's the vision? What's the strategy? What is the why? Because when people understand it on that deeper level than there's more ownership, there's more ability to be empowered. They care about the results because they've been let in on that vision. The seventh characteristic of a great manager. Is that they support career development and they discuss performance in one of our clients projects? We help them create a brand new employees, valuation system. And one of the things that they wanted to find out was what projects get you excited? What do you want to work on over the next year? And then have check in points along the way on house progress going. How're you doing what support do you need? Because that company was really invested in their employees and staff. Self-development actually was one of their core values in continuous self improvement. Eighth characteristic have the expertise to advise the team. Whether that's technical skills, or whether it's soft skills. You don't have to be the expert and everything. But you also need to be a resource. How do you get this done? What resources do you need? How can we bring them to you? You need to be able to at least be plugged in as a manager to get four your people what they need. The ninth characteristic is collaborate. This, I think is a big piece of very highly connected to that, number three characteristic creating unclear team environment. Because when you do that, and it's a team, it's inclusive in your you're bringing people in understanding their unique strengths and gifts and skills. Then there's the natural result of that is collaboration. Oh, Jim is really good at blah, blah, blah, Jim is a resource to be able to collaborate with in his specific unique area of expertise. And then the tenth characteristic of the very best managers is to be a strong decision maker. One of the reasons why people are heads of departments heads of certain areas in company is because it's that the buck stops here mentality that means they have to make decisions because if you're not making decisions you probably shouldn't be in that leadership managerial roll. That also means you need to have the knowledge in the expertise, the confidence to make decisions. In addition to the humility, and the vulnerability to sometimes get wrong because we're not perfect. And perfection should not be expected. But the confidence to make a decision. And then deal with the consequences, whether positive or negative, that is very, very valued. So what do you think of these ten characteristics? I see these ten characteristics as being a great. Leadership program for managers. You got a ten week program right here. I'm kind of doing tongue in cheek because yes, could you create a program. Sure. You could what's really interesting. Is that in our managers thrive program? We touch on most, if not all these characteristics because we have figured out. What's going to help managers thrive? What's going to help staff thrive? What's going to help company thrive in bit by bit by bit? We're going to do our best to impact the world to create more of a thriving community. Rather than just a surviving community.
