"In Ben Ferguson I'll have more as well on the show well a lot of folks are working from home and for some it's probably an awesome experience but for some maybe not so much joining us this morning is networking specialist and chief visionary officer and former CEO of B. and I an organizational behavior experts we say welcome back to Memphis to Dr Ivan miser Dr Ivan thank you for joining me again in Memphis how are you I am fantastic thanks for having me back it's good to have you back on the program and you this is especially when it comes to organizational behavior because the paradigms and might have had a seismic shift now that we're seeing so many people having to work from home which means staff meetings and all those functions are basically now rather than face to face risks were saying things via more electronic means and for some it's it's it's a change that maybe is a good thing but maybe not so much what it what are you saying at at from atop the forest well first of all I I think you're right to change out of the box and whenever they were out of the bottle we're never going to see it be quite the same and it's it was a major disruption press I mean imagine I I'm the founder of an organization that has nine thousand five hundred locations to meet face to face face to face these are groups of you know thirty forty fifty people each and we had to turn on a dime to slip to online meetings where we met ever and we meet every week I mentioned nine thousand five hundred means a week so that she's out of the bottle I think we're gonna see hybrid systems created throughout various organizations in the world where there's some trees to face meetings but more and more online meetings you know doctor I noticed that I'm seeing more and more people use this as a few apps that are at their wet backs in there some others but zoom seems to have just taken off exponentially which is great for them but they've also been in the news with a lot of bad press for their lack of security so but it's it's been an interesting time because a lot of people out of necessity went to zoom I guess because it's easier but we're learning some lessons kind of on the fly are we here we are learning lessons on the fly and from what I've heard and I have a very close friend whose son works with zoom I T. and they've really jumped on that from what I have heard and and try to fill whatever holes there were but you know there are other platforms you've got the go to meeting which I've used zoom which which I have used and Skype of course so there are other platforms but usually crazy people out there you think this is gonna go away it is always gonna be somebody doing something stupid because there's holes in technology so you know I give a little bit of grace St from what I've seen they've really jumped on the on the the challenges that they've had and that's a good thing and and I guess with the unprecedented demand for it sometimes you don't know what you don't know until you find out that you don't know right and I know that was soon what is your platform you can give people passwords so it's harder to get in did you know that the not cases the internet for factor six is trying to get in on you know that you can use passwords and so that you know they're doing what they can sure sure then Dr Ivan miser joining us on that Memphis morning news I I you know I guess in being productive at home is now and is is not it used to be kind of a luxury you you kind of found it in from the from the office to out to the house but now it's it's got to be the standard right I mean Hey you know what people need to be thinking about when they get up in the morning and prepare to put on their work brain rather than their you know lab leisurely life spring yeah there's there's a number of things but first of all you need to have a dedicated work space at your home even if you know if you can get a server room great sisters a separate bedroom that you can put a table and work from that's probably ideal but if you don't have that well you gotta find a corner of the house dead it is your dedicated work space in your not to anything else there it's important to have some contextual discernment meaning you know your house you know where it's going to be quieter or louder if you've got kids usually the kids are going to be for the most part and so you have to have some contextual discernment of find a quiet area find no distractions I mean there's a lot of other things stay off social media ought no cavity is right you can you can if you need social media for business if you're doing social media business projects that's fine but no cat videos staff you to ballistic for business related on the other end of the spectrum intrinsic breaks it's really easy when you're at home to take no breaks just keep working working it's important to break especially if you have family so at the same time which you probably do so take breaks hang out with the family have lunch with the family you know it's okay to watch TV at lunch but those kinds of distractions you wanna stay away from other than all of various breaks and you have to you really have to learn how to control your calendar don't let the tail wag the dog it and and do something I know one guy who's sitting at home and he spent eight hours a day watching the news no it's crazy if you don't you I urge people to take micro doses of the news especially during work hours I read the news on my phone when I get up I read the news before I go to bed occasionally I might watch some news after work hours but don't sit there during the day and watch the news because you know you know it's like the sky is falling and you don't need that that negativity will find you you don't need to go search it out and there's already enough shoulder tappers during the day whether be real or virtual that will distract you from being productive anyway and and then the morale and all that Dr Ivan miser always a pleasure thank you so much for sharing your time with us we hope you have a a very productive day I have fifty two steps to my office so I'm going to St that is very good thank you doctor I have a great day but this morning there.

"Up next hour, Simon Owen talks about John Bolton, Mike Pompeo and the troops in Syria. Also, big national address, President Trump will talk about that in the seven o'clock hour as well. Joining us right now, he's written over a dozen books. He's countless entrepeneurship dot com. Business insider and has appeared in the Wall Street Journal and numerous other publications. We welcome to the broadcast. Dr Ivan Meisner this morning, Dr Ivan thank you for joining forced in me this morning. How are you, sir? I am fantastic. Thanks for having me on Dr Meisner. I know you are. One of the best when it comes to to networking skills, and creating referral networks where you where others grow themselves grow their businesses by connecting with people. But sometimes it may be time to prune some of those branches in that's sounds like it's easier said than done part of networking. I guess is growing your business. But also, keeping it strong or your network strong. How in the world today today is the organization I founded thirty fourth anniversary this morning, I group met or four years ago. Eight thousand eight hundred groups around the world, did you do that on purpose because today's Elvis's birthday? Taught about that. No, no, not at all. You're right though. The people use run yourself with mom got it right years ago. You would hang out with the right people. And that's what this latest book is about is. How do you choose the right people in your life? You know, we we try to build relationships and oftentimes maybe it's fantasy football. Or maybe it's some other gathering where we have something in common, and there is a relationship there. And it's hard for us to not only hear the word. No. But sometimes it's hard for us to say the word. No. Oh, yeah. Absolutely. In one of the things that we do is. We we give some people some ideas on how DC no without burning bridges without you know, acting like a jerk or or worse and indoors a number of techniques that we give here's here's my favorite one. If I said yes to that. I'd let you down. That's a really easy technique to us. Because when you tell somebody look, I don't wanna let you down. And so I got to say no to this. Because it it. You know, it's not gonna work for me. Another really good technique to follow up with that is told that I run referral organization refer them to somebody who would be better able to help them. So when you say, no, see, no, generally, but refer them to someone else that would be better for them. And that requires simple, and that and that requires knowing your circle of influence. I would I would assume it's it's always nice to be ready to have some sort of an an answer like that. And sometimes it's not necessarily because we don't want to do that. But sometimes life just gets in the way, we get real busy. Yeah. I mean, you know, we only have a certain bandwidth to operate in. And and you know, I when I I don't want to let someone die really don't want to let someone done. And if that's not if I don't have the time to do that. I'd rather refer them to someone whatever you do. Don't seinfeld. It. One of the really funny things about the old TV series. Seinfeld was how the characters would just go off on some crazy complicated. Subterfuge. And then you end up giving him more trouble than if they just been honest beginning that's kind of like Michael Scott from the office. It's kind of a benign neglect is like, well, if I just kind of ignore it, perhaps it ju- perhaps the problem or that whatever relationship or situation, I'm in will just go away. Yeah. Well, nine o'clock is an effective technique. We talk about it in the book benign neglect works when you don't want it to think about friends that you've had over the years that you've lost touch with. And they were friends you'd like to stay in touch something just happened to you lost touch. So imagine doing that. Then with point we have a plan where this person's maybe they're toxic. Or maybe their values are just not congruent with yours and ready to pull away benign neglect can effectively especially when you're doing what we call homeopathic doses. Homeopathic doses. The smallest dose necessary to for treatment. And so let's see going into town where somebody lives where you just don't want to connect with anymore rather than tell them a month in advance that you're coming in town. Call them the night before and say, hey, I'm going to be in town tomorrow, and I'm free between one in one thirty love to get together. And you're you're giving it's such a small window that they may not be available. And if they are available, you you're not there for hours on end, and they don't get upset with you. And you don't get grief because they didn't let them know. And then you get bonus points for being proactive because you did technically reach out to them. You did brilliant, absolutely brilliant. That's fantastic. Dr Dr Ivan miser check him out as I said over a dozen books. Check him out on Amazon dot com, you can find out some of his books and also keep an eye on Wall Street Journal dodge manure latest book is who's in your room, and it's available on Amazon fantastic.
