"I'm distracted looking at my team. Being like i don't know about this okay. So caroline you've got you've got vegas. Rangers phillies seattle chicago. Pittsburgh columbus anaheim. What do you think yes. You'll finish top four. I'm unsure. yeah. I'm not feeling overly confident but i'm not highly disappointed. See i have to say that this pool. This pool is the most random completely crazy pool. Having played it. Several times is the most random completely crazy pool that you're ever going to enter. It's basically a lottery. There is almost no. I mean i understand. Some of the moves that dave and jeff. We're talking about looking at schedules. But there is almost no rhyme or reason to this thing and you'll be infuriated in the middle of the season when one of your teams loses someone. It is absolutely no business losing to. That's the best part about this. The way i looked at it from this pool is okay. You get like your top team. Obviously which for me is vegas. And then i was just trying to pick the teams that i really have no idea how they'll be but i like to think that they'll be pretty good. So that's the rangers flyers and then she right through seattle in there but more so chicago so those are teams. I'm happy to gamble on. If you weren't gambling this pool would be no fine. Like making ridiculous picks in the middle. It would be no fun. So i totally support that. Are you going to update us throughout the season. They're going to be like going to be going back and forth so every night. We know who's got the cup and who's got how many days man that's going to get unhealthy fast. Chances are are one person i mean. There's a good chance one person wins both those things it happens. He's going to be losing. So amber your teams are colorado vancouver. Florida washington toronto. Ottawa montreal and buffalo. You have replaced. Ryan smith as captain canada team. What kind of tell you i. I think a very good chance here. Okay merrick you've got tampa carolina detroit edmonson. Minnesota's saint louis the kings and the arizona. Yeah i don't like my team. I want to treat it straight up for da's david's team. I like da's really all right. I do. I like your team. Da are you taking that offer a one for one deal. Yeah straight up. Also you my team for one hundred twenty five right and i've got islanders. Winnipeg dallas boston calgary new jersey nashville and san jose. Please direct deposit at cibc. I'll give you my account number. And dave the saying goes like this. Lord thank you. Oh lord for allowing me to be in the same studio as my king my liege elliott friedman feel free to dress it up. Dress it up our guys. Well thank you very much for your participation caroline and dave we thank you. Thank you guys for agreeing on this. And i by the way just so everyone knows. Jeff doesn't get a day or a point for tampa having the cop at the beginning of the year. No that's bogus man. I i won this thing. They get i get. I get one for day one. No no you. Don't they gotta win. Pittsburgh they got out of if pittsburgh beat tampa opening night. No get zero points for. No no i get to. I won the won the draft. That's got to count for something. You want shuffle from the commissioner here after the draft telling the rules. I dunno door. It won't be the last time. I change the rules in the middle of the pool door. David do no. There's no more canadian. Division like the actually have to play the atlantic and the metro and while not the method see. Now i'm sad. I didn't pick a canadian team or trades allowed with no rules bad canadian. Now this question killing. Because i've never seen one of these before but i think to make it fun. We should allow trades however my suggestion is so for example. If say jeff wants to trade. Detroit and detroit's held the cup for five days. I think he should keep the five days. The other person can't get the five days. Oh yeah no. Yeah a crude wins. Keep yeah absolutely then we could make traits wants. The season starts. Acc all your buffalo for vegas. Can i interest you in a coyote. Sierra leone for arranger. What do you think i want one of your canadian teams amber. I feel i feel like such a bad canadian. All souverain work on a deal. Now which one. You're dealing dave dave on the brady could shock of Negotiators here i'm. I'm not settling friday. There's no hometown discount for you. See see i'm sorry. Okay i'll talk to you in a week all right. Let's let's let the dust settle and we'll see where we're at ambers at the end of october with zero days with the cop. We'll see what he's i am. Going to go bonkers. Hey laptops who. Who's do you like. Whose team do. I like honestly kind of jobs. What i don't even let out of. Dude i don't even like i like i like numbers to i think he's got the best team. Just got some good low keys in there. That i'm kind of excited about going. Go sayers again amber colorado vancouver florida washington toronto. Ottawa montreal buffalo. Yeah that is good. Well i might not get anything on the back end there but we'll see i mean none of us might get anything on the back end because all about timing right. There's only one cup. Yeah that's it that's the thing it's not even about the team is just the schedules gonna play dictate some of it. Too bad teams. Get hot at the end. Yo let's go. Let's go red wings. Let's go coyotes. That's actually something. I in fact i only have two teams in the west back. Screw you know you can totally shut out west only play west and i only have you know. I don't have an opportunity to get my hands on the cup. Oh god what have i done okay. I'll trade. I'll trade into anita west team for one of these canadian teams. You think it through. Well i've got seattle anaheim chicago. Chicago is not liking what you got. You're saying vegas i purposely. Didn't mention vegas. Because i'm not trading vegas dollar us i do. What do you think those terms get you put in jail. Thanks very much guys. we really appreciate it. Thanks for having a smell s fund. Good luck to everyone but especially in tampa bay one here.

"How james connor up seven spots. Now i mean the one thing is all of running back. Adp it's up so nine everyone. Leonard fournette moving down a little bit. Michael carter moving down a little. Bit david johnson plummeting in there. Really see any reason to be more optimistic about james connor right now than we have been throughout the offset like he's he was able to play in the most recent game but he played on one of the three drives with the starters. You played all three downs on that drive but he shared the field with chase edmunds on third down. So i don't know i'm starting to think chase. Edmunds is at least going to get a shot. To be legitimately back like two out of every three drives most third downs kind of a and i think i've moved him up to twenty two overall at running back. Now i'm i'm buying chase. That's that'd be big for me. That would connor guy at yes originally like three months ago. Can't be celebrating chase edmunds about. I've been the onboard. But you can't be celebrating. Why is that. Because you're you're pumping the horn garbage. That was after that was during free agency. I have been his garbage. I'm allowed to change my mind. It wasn't last week that i changed my mind. But you can't be celebrating all from the beginning. I've been putting my money where my mouth is not my actual money. I've been drafting chase edmunds. That's fight. I'm just saying you can't you can't celebrate celebrate. I absolutely can celebrate. Amy be dancing. When chase edmunds name is brought up. I i am in raise the roof territory. I have no ground raised roof. You can dance if you want. I will leave jimmy. i absolutely believe jamie behind stoke. Jamie jamie does dance. Held washer was. I'm still not sure. I'm not dancing for chase edmunds yet. Should i was. I was really dancing. Usage has worried me more than the james connor injury as excited me run. Laura is deandre hopkins hasn't played in la. I don't know more is going to be the starter i th. I don't know for sure either. I think they're going to scheme him touches though. Yeah and it's the types of plays that chase de. That are good for chase edmunds. Everything i've seen has suggested that christian kirk still this the starting slot. But in the preseason with no hopkins around he's played every snap. I think outside so they play more for wide receiver than any team in the league. They'll probably do it even more this year now. They don't really have a a viable and receiver option. So i'm not sure where that where i'm at on that yet. Dick is i am allowed. What way. I make a call on james connor months ago. I changed my mind. I have a lot to be excited about the bottom line. Is i've higher on chase edmonson anyone on the show so that gives me the dancing opportunity running twenty two chase entire rankings would probably have ahead of i will say this is my first year during football. Rankings it's so much easier to do that when you don't have rankings you say everyone's too low on this guy and you don't have to put your guy out there. My gut is that no. I would not have that high. Also you're calling me stupid. Let me see twenty two.

Your people like down the tree. Yeah you know.

Treat and make sure that everyone was out in about the branding and like to disseminate that information. So i remember when i was like okay. You call kelly like you like i was.

"Was a key foundational element. That's great thank you that thompson. I think it's both a it. Tends to be a koba qualitative and quantitative approach where we focus so from a quantitative perspective will look at where is our global way footprints. Where do we have opportunities in gaps in terms of whether be representation whether it's around learning where we're looking to grow as an organization where we forecasting are hiring or forecasting leadership teams to be rotation strategy might be inputs that we see based on you know from a qualitative perspective. Things like leaders coming to us. Essentially knocking on our doors sending Us a message. They have got a lot of energy around this and this is something that i'm really committed. Cheer for team or a part of our business a business leader saying hey. This is a commitment that i'm making. I wanna see you know. Marked improvements around might organizational help index and my sentiment employees around their feelings of inclusion in belongings. So it's a bit of a about in approach. The data piece how we define that do we focus in the nice about doing from a data perspective as we can then find a few markets to task in terms of employee populations gets really great success stories in win and then expand from there. Oftentimes it helped us disrupt the mindset of this doesn't work for my region where this might not make sense. we'll start to uncover. What is some of the safety bias at play within that space or what are some of that minds hebrews that we need to look to shift in testing something new in oftentimes will be contested in marquette edge with some of what seemed like be parent similar constraints in have rims at houses. Get across the finish line a little bit faster in different places but fundamentally does that that both and approach and we're constantly getting feedback from armed ways as well. We have accleration board that we started over the last few months with our business. Resource groups and members from those routes along with the students drew executives on thursday. Were at any time. They can drop them back into the collaboration word. Whether it's based on the diverse town community there are present or peru's within our deny strategy is we've got that continually backrub as well. So we can rapidly shifted. It's not something that we put in place in january and hope were pointing in the right direction. Come december something that is iterating every month in every quarter. This really interesting. So if i were to bring together everything that i'm hearing. It's really sort of a mini master class in how to do change management incredibly. Well so there's that creating the common language or the comment pillars around which you can rally looking at the data identifying the challenges and responding to those but also looking to your employees into leadership to hear what they think. The issues are aware. They have energy and passion. Because you've got to have that support and then continuing to evolve because no good diversity initiative just sits there and stay static. So it's fantastic to your from both of you how you're continuing to reshape these efforts as you learn from your employees in particular i just wanted to lead off with something and and i would love to hear jennifer elizabeth's their perspective on this a little bit to share on this as well. Somebody wrote that. A challenge for me around d. And i efforts in south africa is that there is no psychological safety so people are not willing to engage. How can we overcome this challenge. And before i threw that question out to you. I just like to define what does psychological safety me. It's a climate in which people feel safe expressing their ideas concerned sharing ideas even mentioned mistakes without fear that there are going to be shamed or they're gonna feel embarrassed or they're going to face retribution. And this is from amy edmonson work at harvard so she's written a lot on this and so it's really important that organizations create a climate of psychological safety otherwise people knock waited feel safe bringing their authentic selves. Let alone just mentioning things and bringing to light especially issues around d i and elizabeth if you could share some of your perspectives jennifer. You as well. Yeah so what comes to mind is really building that trust nephew by route but employs boys. I think that's where we're starting to see the biggest gains around psychological safety. For example i mentioned and the research focus groups being really important as part of our approach in how advanced the strategy or line in the initiatives interventions wanna tasks now to get to. That weight will solicit feedback from employees. Your reason have the trust psychological safety. How do you know that you're getting all of the wins in that quantitative feedback that you're really looking for and so we start author with a space and building trust of being a trusted adviser being a source being someone who will continue. The conversation feedback alludes and inviting voices to the table and then getting to see when other people are contributing in sharing. How do we take that information. How do we protect confidentiality where it needs to be protected and when it needs to be protected. And how are we making progress so that they can see ideas. Just don't go into a black hole or feedback doesn't go into nowhere in that it's not taken action on. But they're really able to see that progress real time as we move the calendar year. I think that's where the psychological safety starts to grow. We also try to understand from us. A local cultural context what are the operating norms within that office. That worked culture unity's in which we live and work and make sure that as we approach to building apathy research to building those communication feedback loops all of those pieces that it's done with not just north america lens pressed on the rest of the world in how we do business in our culture here in north america or relieved what makes sense from that. Local context tends to work out best frost and again. It's a little bit around trial and error and having this kind of shared humanity and humility when we get it wrong because we don't always get it right. We'll get really critical feedback from our employees is a distant land with me. This didn't feel safe. This didn't really meet my be open to that. Critical feedback has been really helpful while and saying hey we recognize. We got it wrong. That didn't work. Let's hit our approach for this next session. Knoxville resources to see those gains. Thank you so much margin there. I would start with in our business and in in our industry. Safety is an absolute because so many of our jobs are really high. Risk installing elevators manufacturing. And so we partnered with our environmental health and safety right teams around this concept recognizing that we can't even have you know physical safety without psychological safety so even the basis of our safety program is. Hey you see something that's not safe. You are empowered an individual employees to stop work right. I can go on and on that basis than and that being ingrained in our culture. And absolutely i think has helped us here as well and a lot of key concepts that we're introducing. We're doing it within the context of our safety program as well because if folks don't feel psychologically safe and they're not actually physically.

"Twenty eight years five months and three days in the us navy. I know that because that's what the retirement clerk told me. When i was checking out of the navy meet navy. Seal captain bill wilson when he was stationed in afghanistan and the joint special operations command. Bill had a commander who stood out. He was just so approachable his wife would send him eminem's peanut ebbs and he had this big jar eminem in his office. And normally you'd never go into the old man's office by yourself. But i go in there to drop things off and i noticed that the eminem jar is going down mike. I'm gonna talk to the guy easy way to much candy here. You know you gotta will turn. Everyone was going in. They felt so comfortable they would go in and and nip his candy. The commander was admiral. William mcraven one of america's most decorated military leaders he led the missions that captured saddam hussein and killed osama bin laden. Admiral mcraven went to great lengths to build psychological safety in his team's not just by letting people feel his eminem's it was cleared a bill that the admiral wanted to be challenged and corrected. He would say something that was so outlandish. We look at each other. And he's like okay. I just said something absolutely idiotic. Who here has the fill in the blank to tell me. I'm an idiot. You guys are ridiculous ridiculous because you failed all of you fail failure fired. And he did that he does. I did that just a early on to create the opportunity for you guys to know. We're not doing that sir. That's crazy crazy talk. And he said. That's the the environment that i want to cultivate. Is you guys are fearless in telling me when something goes to stakes or two. I bill even had a shorthand for telling admiral mcraven. He was wrong or he was about to make a bad call. My code sort of expression with the admiral was sir. I don't believe The staff has given you a fully informed option. If you could just give us twenty four hours we'll come back to you with some information that sir stop. Just please stop talking. He was also receptive in a way that. Okay i'll i will stop talking obviously. There's something here that were going to sort out later. Which very few leaders will do that. Bill also knew he could bring the admiral bad news and mistakes. He remembers a time. When one of his colleagues told the admiral about emission. they went on without the proper permissions. Here's what the admiral didn't do. He didn't turn red and start screaming or humiliating. It mcraven owned it. He just like. I'll take care of that. When did you learn from it. okay What are we going to do differently. Next time okay. Thanks and then change the subject rather than sitting there and kind of picking apart the scab of what we've just done but bill says admiral mcraven did have a clear weakness. He honestly will collect strays. So he'll take people who have struggled at something and gosh wants to give you know. Let's give bill a chance. You know he's gonna kill me divulge. Hey admiral this might be a good time to introduce yourself. I'm a retired navy. She'll latte also spent thirty seven years as a navy seal sir. I've told him that you know one of your blind spots as you collect strays you. Just you always see the good in somebody. I remember refusing to do it. Sir sir we are not gonna put that person lovely human being. We're not gonna put person there. They will not be successful. And i will not allow that to damage your credibility. You chuckled off go. Yeah i know i do that. Thanks bill i appreciate it and i just was thinking. Yeah thanks sir. Thanks for listening the folks that worked for ya. Ya have to listen to their advice and counsel and then part of bills responsibility to me as he said was to protect me from myself and and bill always made sure when i when ever had no clothes. Bill was never concerned about telling me point play. We ain't gonna do this or this is really a bad idea. After finishing his extraordinary military career. Admiral mcraven served as chancellor of the university of texas system. I got to know him when we were on a board together at the pentagon and yes. I'm still trying to convince him. To run for president so resistant. I've seen the admiral in action and his leadership behaviors exemplify the principles of building psychological safety. i've never heard of the term psychological safety. I understand it. Good leader knows you have got to listen to the rank and file. Because if you don't then you're going to be on the bus to abilene. You're heading in a direction that is not good for the organization. And if you don't empower people below you to speak their mind then you're gonna find yourself in a lot more trouble and and be embarrassed a lot more than if you decided that you didn't want them to speak up. Is this something you thought about often. As you moved into leadership roles every single time you bet so the first thing a leader has to do is you know. Set the tone for the organization and you have to do that on day. One research by amy edmonson and others has identified several key steps to establish psychological safety for set the tone by acknowledging your own fallibility and appreciating people. Who pointed out. I don't think that's a good idea. But then you also when people come to you and say that you got to say i appreciate that. Was there a critical moment when somebody challenged your decisions. Oh just about every day it happened. During one of the most consequential missions the admiral's career the raid on the bin laden compound told the president that we weren't going after refuel our way into the tar and rethought just helicopters there did on target get bin laden and tobacco talks going back because ritually was gonna take another twenty minutes while kind of late in the team on my senior guys senator. We've run the numbers a hundred times but on the hundred and first time. We're really concerned. We think we're going to have to refuel and like man. I mean this was. It seemed like a major change to the operation. I went to the president said sir. I'm sorry but this is a chain of land..

And today psychological safety every culture needs it and how to build it thanks to linked in for sponsoring this episode in four seasons of work life. There's one theme that comes up more than any other psychological safety. It was a big deal in creative teams from pixar to the daily show. It was key in high pressure situations for astronauts and olympic athletes. So i thought it was about time to call the expert who put psychological safety on the map. I'm amy edmonson. I'm a professor at harvard. Business school and i studied teams and organisational learning and leadership. So tell me what is psychological safety. Psychological safety is climate in which one feels. when can be can't it's it's a place where interpersonal risks seal doable interpersonal risks. Speaking up with questions concerns and half baked ideas and even mistakes. Amy started her career. As an engineer working for buckminster fuller the architect and designer most famous for inventing the geodesic dome. He was often called the renaissance man. Probably more davinci than edison. Although we did have a couple dozen patents. When amy showed up at work she was surprised. By how bucky treated the team. He was eighty six when i started working for him and he was. He was generous and always giving credit he was. He was enormously appreciative of the hard work of of the ideas. You know it would. He would listen intently. People were encouraged to share ideas. Even if they weren't perfect and bucky listened to them. This was a workplace with a lot of psychological safety high candor. Low fear and amy was so taken by the climate bucky created that eventually she changed careers to study it in. Psychologically safe workplaces. People don't have to mask their concerns and ideas they can speak up and share them. The opposite of psychological safety might look something. Like what ed pearson described at boeing chilling meetings where people are grilled and reprimanded punishment if employees voiced concerns that to me would be psychological danger. Maybe you felt that sense of danger in a job where manager silence dissent or a team where no one ever suggested a new idea because people lived in terror of making mistakes but a lack of psychological safety can also be more subtle like in a midwest manufacturing company that amy studied. She spent months observing the top management team meetings and they were threat that time trying to formulate a new strategy and the tiptoeing the reluctance to to speak up the reluctance to disagree was so palpable that would observed was they were having the same conversation. Sort of vague conversation. Didn't seem to get anywhere. You've probably stat. Through one of those circular meetings. They suck you know. Psychological safety is missing in your team if people say different things behind leaders backs than to their faces. And you know it's missing in your organization if leaders have to run anonymous surveys to get people to tell the truth. That's a red flag. What are the telltale signs that you pick up that of a team or a workplace might be lacking psychological safety a preponderance of if not exclusively good news or happy talk as opposed to asking for help. Raising puzzles raising concerns. That's a red flag because you expect lots of uncertainty and complexity in interactivity. Meaning that bilby many things going wrong or many things that don't make sense or many things that are not getting done as fast as they were hoped to. And and so on so. The question isn't whether those things are happening. The question is how much are. People eagerly speaking up to talk about them to get help with them. Who when you're in. It isn't always easy to tell whether your team has psychological safety. It helps to ask yourself. Are you afraid to share bad news. Ask for help or admit you're wrong. Things will go wrong. That's the nature of work. Make it unsafe to acknowledge that is a problem but feeling safe to speak. Up is only half the equation. Psychological safety isn't about making people feel comfortable being nice or brushing aside mistakes to work well. Psychological safety has to be coupled with accountability that combination creates a culture where people take intelligent risks. So the problem with some of these misconceptions in particular like being agreeable and being nice is that they're exactly the opposite of what i'm talking about being nice in the workplace often means not telling you what i really think because it wouldn't be nice. This doesn't have to be for your next dinner party but for the workplace that we can be straight that we can be candid like get it wrong. We will get it wrong. Lots and lots of times but we won't hold back and read. The tea leaves before speaking up. Let's say i run into this all the time you do not have to be nice to other people to be respectful of them or to be kind for them. Kind is not nice at least colloquial the way. We use nice as often not very respectful. Because you're sort of saying something that you believe. The other person will think is nice. Yeah that's a great presentation when inside your thinking now. That was a very weak presentation. That's neither kind nor respectful. What you're aiming for on a team is a commitment to high standards and the psychological safety to be candid with each other as you try to achieve them. Amy's research shows that psychological safety has three key advantages at work. The first benefit is preventing errors. She studied this for decades in hospitals. Where the stakes are. High and mistakes are inevitable. In healthcare like an airplane manufacturing psychological safety is critical to physical safety. What we see again and again especially non physicians in our nurses and physician assistants and others failing to speak up when they have a doubt right when they think a dose of a medication might not be right or or when they see a surgeon about to operate on what they're pretty sure but not one hundred percent sure is the wrong location. The wrong site. The most important problematic outcome is that patients get harmed in ways. That were preventable. Amy has found that in the absence of psychological safety. People hide their mistakes to protect themselves when errors aren't detected. They get repeated in the presence of psychological safety. People admit their mistakes to protect the group. Emmys research has even shown that better teams report more mistakes. They're able to learn what caused the errors.

I think in this period that he did in game one little surprise yesterday around the league, but he didn't capture his second doesn't trophy was one of the finalists. He has led the League in victories each of the last four seasons. Pretty special with Marc Andre Fleury did. He had had a wonderful see when he had to step up and play all the games.

And it's one and done for Montreal as Tampa Bay brings it back to the Senate Games. The Red Line, got it deep and price again out to play it. Edmonson reverses it quickly.

Now it's going to be four on three and Montreal with the power play as they checked and all for forensic evidence to see if it's a garden variety. Two minute minor and I believe it will be.

Yeah i mean. I haven't done that so i can't. I can't say that. But i would have. I might have said that about the five day like do the five day. Move on. But i do think that there's things interwoven with the good stuff in the five day. That can be detrimental for the long run so i i wouldn't say that about nexium anymore. I would say there's a couple classes and tools that i refer to but they're not from keith at at figure out where he he got them from originally so final questions. One is just an observation. You're re town ross. Here and people may have already heard this soil here at soon. One of the things that struck me most about my conversation with him was that he said when you look at these personal government organizations to date. Nobody has conducted. Large-scale properly. you know done with the scientific method research. Study to test the effectiveness of any of this. Almost all of his eric total evidence. So what is your view on that in terms of like the the the results that people get from doing all this stuff like oh go to robbins make more money and he said almost all the evidence is anecdotal but nobody has actually done a large scale study where they actually looked at the results that people have produced over the course of their lives and looked at how their lives have changed. I you know five six years from now. yeah. I would say that i mean. Ironically we said that we were doing that we had these before and after surveys that we were told. We're being monitored by a third party to test our growth measure our growth. But we found out later. They never left the building. He's like ethically long forms personality surveys Yeah i think. That's probably. I mean recross would know that better than i would. I think that's probably true. No one's these claims are based in you know what the company wants you to think. Unfortunately it'd be great to get peer reviewed and maybe within some of them could validity until then. It's a bunch of hogwash. As i mentioned at the beginning of the episode.

That's a problem. So before we hit record. We're talking about this point of diminishing returns that tends to take place. Because i agree with you. I think that there is a lot of good. That has come from my own personal development efforts but i also realized there was a point which i it started to become personal development for the sake of personal development not for why i went there in the first place so i started writing the section of a book saying that usually it becomes the end rather than the means young in costa rica. There's a joke that they have really bad roads there and so there potholes everywhere and one hundred yards down. The road from the pothole is a guy who fixes tires and so they joked that he's the one who actually created the pothole. And i feel like often. What i've seen is that personal development when people get into it starts to reveal problems. They didn't know they had didn't even care to solve and suddenly there's something else to sell them to solve that solution so one for you where. The cracks in the found did the cracks in the foundation start to occur. And what was that point of. Diminishing returns sarah and by the way i didn't use the pothole example but that i hope that was clear in my book as well that that was i think the most deceptive thing that they did is create problems that didn't exist and then charge you to fix it. Is that seem right. Yeah but yes. What on okay. Good 'cause i was one of the messages. I wanted to convey quick tangent. there was class at.

I'm sure there's a lot of good groups and coaches and people out there that provide value and an and truthfully i don't like any of it because of my experience but i'm trying to be less skeptical. I do know that there are good intentioned well intentioned coaches people leaders all that stuff leadership can exist without deception without colty behavior But i guess. I would encourage people to a you know research properly if there is any allegations against a leader or coach or a group or organization where there's smoke there's fire is one thing and and also how that organization her coach or whatever. Let's just say coach for the purpose of the conversation. You know how that coach deals with allegations you know. Do they look into it or do they say well. That person's just crazy if someone says writing somebody off crazy because it may have allegations against you like that's a that's a major red flag I would say if you feel pressured. There's a time thing like you know. Sign up within forty eight hours and you'll get a discount that's a problem What else to look for Yes if that person is put on a pedestal and everyone's worship worshiping them and nobody can question them. That's a huge problem. If you ask a question and you get it put back in your face lawar even asking that like. Why do you feel the need to ask. That was going on for you that you're being so fearful like no. I'm not being fearful. I'm asking you a question. How does the lighting is so rampant in these groups. So one thing. I am curious. You mentioned that a one of the things that israel easy to as to indoctrinate somebody into a belief system within three days. And i remember seeing sort of the initial seminars. Thinking these aren't particularly nice rooms that you guys are and they look like. They're in cheap motels.

You're in a commotion state so then right when you're gonna peak emotional states somebody says all right. It's time to sell you something.

"Yeah how in the world is happened like you feel so uncomfortable with this yet. You convince yourself that. Wait a minute. I need to stay because this is proof that it's working. Yeah exactly so. I think it's the same in landmark and from from what i've heard so the rate of the beginning very first five day they set you up with an f since learned this This is part of the setup. That keith taught us is the same thing with sales you have to take people on gentle. What he called. Lifts likes imagine the stairs. You don't take them when right to the top you gotta go stab stabber star in the first stairs. Would you agree that every successful person needs to look at areas where they're not successful to be the most successful and everybody says yeah of course there's always areas okay so when you hit one of those areas would you agree. That's uncomfortable to look at those things. Yes i agree to that okay so when you are sitting here in this room and we're just talking which talking about things and you're hitting an area of discomfort that's an area they muse look at for growth everybody agrees and they say okay so when you're sitting here you're going to feet. We're going to talk about things and you're gonna feel uncomfortable and you'll have the too bold and we're just asking you to stick it through. You paid good money. Paid to three thousand dollars to be here. Will you sit sit through or talk to a coach if you have to leave know and so we we agree to that so at as the curriculum goes goes on and as you are presented with more and more curriculum you're also presented with things that inherently will make you uncomfortable depending on what your background is or they would say what your issues are like. For example we would have people who had been in another group or like had been raised. A jehovah's witness or a scientologist or extreme fundamental whatever and so they already have that in their in their wiring right so when they when they saw certain things like you know bowing to vanguard are having to wear a sash that denotes your rank they would internally. Can i swear in this. They'd be like well. Fuck this. i've been through this before. I'm outta here. I didn't have that. I wasn't raised in any of those things. Only new thing. I knew about calls was like heaven. Not even heaven's gate. I think like jim jones and people who drank the koolade and diana like i didn't. I didn't have any knowledge about how 'cause worked at that time. So when i feel uncomfortable okay wait. We're calling somebody. Then guard what i'm uncomfortable but i don't wanna leave because i i want to be successful and i want to overcome my challenges and very quickly on the very first module and the very first day they're talking about people can't pay tribute to what other people have built is means that they're suppressive. You don't want to be suppressive. That's the worst thing. So as i'm going about to raise my hand to say hey. I'm uncomfortable with calling this guy. I've never met vanguard and bowing to him when i enter the room. That's weird. I just suppressed that a little bit. Keep it inside and go caleb. I'll get through day three and just like.

We've ever had opened with that. It feels like a long while. I think because i guess we knew all the stuff that was going to happen ready. Usually the off seasons for the driver changes and stuff that that happened before the last season started. So we've had this big buildup of like all these expectations about drivers going to different places and now it's come into reality so exciting. But i'm i'm definitely ready for it to kickoff.

It doesn't look like a situation for them. But because we've been here so many times before. I'm not willing to place that bet against them and if there are good aunts to get on them.

Courageous Cultures With Karin Hurt & David Dye
"Employees have ideas, leaders want to hear them, and yet somehow there is a disconnect. So what if instead you can have a courageous colchester where people speak up, they share ideas, the default is to contribute. So today, we're going to start with grounding you in a little bit of the research under grounds, our work, and then from, there are going to give a series of very practical tools to help you tap into the very best ideas and micro innovations that are happening on your team right now. So. To answer these questions about why speaking up with problem solutions with micro innovations advocating for customers is difficult. We partnered with the University of Northern, Colorado and a research project both quantitative and qualitative to figure out what keeps people from being able to speak up and what are some of the best companies doing to overcome those barriers. The first reason we discovered through that research is that no one's asking, in fact, forty, nine percent of our research respondents said, they are not consistently asked for ideas by their leaders. And then many people feel like nothing's going to happen. A full fifty percent of respondents said that if they were to share an idea, it wouldn't be taken seriously by their leadership. So, why bother? And then you ever feel stock. Well quite a few respondents feel the same way just over two thirds. Sixty, seven percent said that their leadership operates under the principle because we've always done it this way if we've always done it this way, that's the way we're always going to do it, and then there's the reluctance that comes from fear or a lack of confidence forty percent. Our research respondents said that they lack the confidence to share an idea. So this concept of sue or fear of speaking up was very interesting as we conducted interview after interview across a variety of industries and countries all over the world. Why are people so afraid to speak up and I? We said if you did speak up what are the ideas that you're holding back and these things are not trivial sound like Khumbu, in a break room kind of ideas. They said my idea that I'm not sharing would be to improve the customer experience, the employee experience or improvement of process. People are scared primarily because they have had a bad experience in the past. So research shows that people tend to hold onto a negative experience longer than a positive experience, which means that even if you are a fantastic leader, encouraging people to speak. Supporting them. If they had a bad experience in the past, they may still be holding onto that and are not sharing their best ideas because of old fear. So, an addition to that psychological aspect of overweight in the past people also tend to discount the future in Dr Amy Edmonson Research. She talks a lot about how when it comes to psychological safety. People don't recognize just how valuable the contribution they could make will be. So as a leader, you want to be aware that these things are happening in your team. Another reason people lacked the competence to share is that they haven't been taught how to share their ideas well, and so we will also be giving you a tool today to help you give to your team to help them vet and think through their ideas. So we'll just take you through a little bit. Bit about the courageous cultures process, and then we were going to go a little bit deeper into a couple of these areas. Today. When you're building courageous culture, it really starts with navigating the narrative that is grounding yourself in your own fear or confidence. So are you letting a bad past experience? Hold you back and so one of the things that we do in our programs is really get people to think about their most courageous sacked at work and build on that confidence. The next is creating clarity, and when we talk about creating clarity, we're really talking about in clarity into areas, I being crystal clear that you really do want people's ideas and reinforcing that. Again and second clarity around what a good idea would accomplish, and we'll talk about how you can get more specific than just. Hey, does anybody have any good ideas? Next is cultivating curiosity, and this is where it will spend most of our time today. How do you go out and deliberately stay curious and draw out people's best

A groundbreaking terrorism charge against an alleged incel
"You probably don't remember the name Ashley. Noel are Daca even if you heard about her killing when it happened police tapes around the crime scene here at the crown. Spa near Wilson and Dufferin. An active investigation is underway. One woman in her early. Twenty S is dead falling a stabbing earlier this afternoon and to others. Who are also involved in. The incident aren't hospital. The Grand Scheme of the new cycle at the time it was a small tragedy with victims and violence and a first degree murder charge and a court date to come at some point. The crime happened at the end of February. Just as newscasts were starting to be dominated by the emergence of covid nineteen so the story got lost until Tuesday when the charges against the accused were updated and two words were added right after murder terrorist activity and this is important because I the image that those two words might conjure in some minds is not even close to what police say happened here and second because certainly in Canada and quite likely around the whole world. This is the first time that charge has been used in this way. Every murder in Toronto is a tragedy. Every murder should be covered and every victim should be mourned. And we probably know that. That's not always the case. So what is it about this one? That might leave a legacy that is significant to victims and activists across the world. What might those two words at the end of the charge change in our fight against misogyny Jordan Heath Rawlings and this is the big story? Stuart Bell is a reporter with Global News and he was part of a team of journalists. Who broke this story? Hello Stuart. Why don't you start by telling me what we know about what happened on February twenty? Four th in as much detail as you can well as about noon on a Monday and The owner of a A massage parlor in Toronto Heard some loud noises coming from a back room and she went to see what's going on and a man came out with a believable machete started attacking her. She was actually able to wrestle with a bad and eventually stabbed him as well and so the to them came outside covered in blood. Witnesses saw them. Come outside the storefront Bleeding heavily and police arrived. They found the body of a woman inside at twenty four four year old woman and they arrested the young person who was injured at the scene at the time they charged him with first degree murder and attempted murder but it was always a big question. Mark over this particular killing as to why. What was the motive for it in there were? There was some especially given Toronto's history with the in cells in the two thousand eighteen van attack. There was some speculation. No could this be but it was only yesterday when the charges were laid in court when we finally got the confirmation that in fact Police are alleging that this was an insult attack. Let's start with The victim of the attack. What do we know about her? And I guess about the place where this happened like set the scene for us a little bit so we have some context for for the charges while it's an erotic massage parlor if you read their website they certainly don't conceal the fact that You know there perhaps a little bit more than massage other certainly encouraging a certain type of Clientele. The woman was killed was twenty four years old. She was a mother. The woman who was injured was thirty years old believe she's described herself as the owner of the of the business She had some cuts honor arms. You know sort of defensive kind of wounds. We know why this particular place was targeted. We don't know for sure but certainly from other in related attacks over the years we've seen places targeted for example a Yoga Studio in Florida just because the attacker believed that was a place where he could find women which were really his target right so that may have been the case here as well. What do we know about the alleged killer? Well we don't know much in can't say of what we know. Because he's a youth he seventeen and therefore his identity is protected by the Young Offenders Act. It's just not even possible to discuss anything that would reveal his identity but we do know from our police. Sources that Following his arrest he made statements that put him in line with cell ideology. One police source told OUR CATHERINE MACDONALD A Global Toronto that he wanted to kill as many women as possible. We also heard that. He said he was familiar with the Toronto Van Attacker and the author of what is considered to be the in cell manifesto for police to come out and say outright that they believe this was inspired by ideology You can bet they must have some either from his own statements or his maybe as online usage or maybe both they probably have evidence that certainly leads them in that direction. Can you explain the significance of the way? The police have changed the charge. What does it mean? Well it significant on a bunch of levels. You know if you look back at the history of terrorist attacks just in the last couple of years There was the the van attack in Edmonson. There was The Quebec mosque shooting was the the Toronto Van Attack. In twenty eighteen in all those cases. Either certainly things that looked like textbook terrorism but in none of those cases where terrorism charges brought with the prosecutors did in those cases was basically say We're charging you with first degree murder or attempted murder and I think the the reasoning behind not pursuing terrorism aspect of that is it really doesn't add anything in the end result and it may be even makes the prosecution more difficult. Because you've got to prove the motive. The motive was somehow terrorism related. But I think you'll probably have noticed. There was a lot of push back to that. Why was the Quebec Mosque? Shooting not officially considered terrorism. Why was the the Toronto Vanak not treated as an act of terrorism? I think that caused a lot of confusion in a lot of people were upset so I think it's entirely possible that we've seen a bit of a change here Don't forget three days before this massage parlor attack. There was another attack. There was a woman in scarborough on sidewalk when she was attacked. By a man with a hammer in killed he was also arrested and charged with the same murder terrorist activity charge and he was alleged to have been a supporter of is this ideology so in that case they they did lay that terrorism charge. So I think when you look at those two cases together for probably seeing Abbot of a sea change in terms of prosecutors in police saying look I think it is it is important that when terrorism happens we treat it as terrorism that we recognize it for what it is and you know even though it not change the length of time that the person will spend in prison. It's important for the community to have it recognized for what it really is and I think there's another significance as well and I've heard this from sources over this particular case which is one of the best ways to interrupt. Terrorism is for people to recognize when individuals are going down that path of violent radicalization so for parents for example. We're talking about a seventeen year old in this case for parents or friends or people that are around our teachers people that are around someone to have a better idea of what terrorism looks like how people behave when the radicalizing in into to intervene when they see that happened to get that person help before they end up picking up a a knife for were renting a van and mowing people down and so I think by the hope is that by prosecuting. These types of things as terrorism Dell help raise awareness among people. Terrorism is not just nine eleven. It comes in different forms it can be just a young person online radicalizing attaching themselves to a cause and deciding to go in and pick up everyday objects as weapons and to do something in their mind for their cause. So I think that's the other significance is hopefully benefit in terms
Creating Psychological Safety in the Workplace
"It was the late nineteen ninety s medical mistakes at hospitals were a big problem and researcher Amy Edmonson had a moment of panic. She had been studying different teams in the same hospital. She wanted to know do better teams make fewer mistakes. But what she found was the opposite of what she expected turns out the most cohesive hospital teams reported making the most mistakes, not fewer that surprised her until she realized maybe the better teams weren't making more mistakes. Maybe they were more able and willing to talk about their mistakes this became Edmund since influential nineteen ninety nine paper, titled psychological, safety and learning behavior in were teams since then the research has piled on showing that psychological safety can make nut just teams, but entire organizations perform better it's been ten years since Amy Edmonson was a guest on the HBO idea cast and she's back on the show today. She's. Is a professor at Harvard Business School, and our new book is the fearless organization, creating psychological safety in the workplace from learning innovation and growth, Amy. Thanks so much for coming back on the show. Thank you for having. It's great have you here because psychological safety. I can't tell you the number of times it has come up in each cast interviews in it's fun to talk about it. Now. Also with hindsight of what you've learned over the last couple of decades. Now, this term psychological safety, you say, it's not it's not the best term. Why not you know, the term implies to people a sense of coziness. You know? Oh, I'm just everything's gonna be great that we're all going to be nice to each other. And that's not what it's really about. What it's about his candor what it's about as being direct taking risks being willing to say I screwed that up being willing to ask for help. When you're in over your head. Why is it that probably more people would say that they don't feel psychologically safe at work than than others? I mean, it it still seems like it's not the norm. It is not the norm at all. In fact, I think it's it's. Unusual which is what makes it potentially a competitive advantage. The reason why psychological safety is rare has to do with aspects of human nature human instinct, for example. It is an instinct to want to look good in front of others. It's an instinct to divert blame in. It's an instinct to agree with the boss and hierarchies or places where these instincts are even more exaggerated. We really wanna look good. And we especially wanna look good in a hierarchy and the spontaneous way to try to chief. That goal is to kind of be quiet on less. I'm sure that what I have to say will be very well received especially by the higher ups, and these are like phrases, we we know in real life too. Like better to be safe than sorry. Right. Don't rock the boat. Don't rock the boat. You know, no one ever got fired for silence. Right. And you know, I think we tend to. To play not to lose. Right. We stay safe. I wanna look good. I wanna perform well learning is great. But it will not in front of people. I don't wanna have the part of learning that involves me to fail along the way. I wanna learn from when that other person it carry us learn, yeah. Yeah, they have to learn firsthand that this doesn't work and have everybody. See my failure. I'd rather not. Yeah. Let's talk about a disaster to where psychological safety has not been present. And it led to financial ruin it led to colossal business failures. So one of the best examples recently is Wells Fargo, which in two thousand fifteen was considered one of the world's most admired companies. It was the shining star of banking for anybody who doesn't know at this is a US Bank with a long history, right and very much kind of customer oriented, Bank, household oriented Bank. And their strategy, which I think was a good strategy was to really push on cross selling course once you've made a customer relationship. It's easier to leverage that relationship sell that that customer more products rather than you know, the extra cost of building new relationships made sense to really emphasize cross selling by the men if somebody has a savings and data count a car loan, and maybe get a home loan credit card. And in fact, they had a slogan going for great where it's GR eight read the idea was I should be able to sell you eight different financial services products. So nice idea and soon this idea runs up against the reality of customers limited wallets, but rather than the the executives getting the feedback from those, you know, boots on the ground. Instead the message just kept coming top down. You must do this. You know, people had the sense that they'd be fired if they didn't achieve the targets that they were set the managers were very tough and present. And so rich goal stretch goals. I love stretch goals. Right. I'm a big fan of struggles. But if you wanna have stretch goals, you better have open ears. So I think of the Wells Fargo story as a recipe for failure is stretch goals plus closed ears. So what ultimately happened was? Of course, the sales folks started crossing an ethical line. They started making up fake customers. They lied to customers saying if you buy this product, you also have to buy this product, right? I mean, they did dozen little things that were just inappropriate and wrong. And ultimately as is always the case this comes to light. So the beautiful success of Wells Fargo proves itself to be an allusion of success. Why do you see this as a? As an absence of psychological safety, rather than like, an incentives problem or or an ethics problems. There is an incentive story here. But in I could give you in your job a poor incentive. And you could give me feedback that you could tell me, you know, this actually doesn't work, and in fact, it's encouraging if you think about it, it's an courage in some behaviors you really don't want to encourage. And then I'd say, hey, that's really interesting. You're right. Let's let's tweak. Let's talk together about what would be the best incentive to optimize our performance. And and that's not what happened. So it's a psychological safety story. Because from what I learned people really did not feel it was safe to push back to say, this isn't working. It can't be done. So lovely strategy. But the strategy in execution is discovering some some new and important things about the. Reality of the market and in a in a well, run organization managers middle managers, senior managers executives would be quite interested in those data. And they would not automatically say these people just aren't trying hard enough. Let's push hard. Or what about an example of a company that has mastered psychological safety in the in the workplace and has gained that competitive advantage that that you referenced at the beginning the one industry that is a very challenging industry to succeed in and particularly to succeed in consistently is the movie industry. Most movie producers most movie houses will have an occasional hit. And then a few, you know bombs. So Pixar is a company that has had seventeen in a row. Major box office successes that evolve also been critically acclaimed. It's an unheard of success out. Size. It's outsized. Right. It's way it's way beyond the sort of just pretty good. And at cap mill co founder and longtime leader has gone out of his way and very deliberately to create and keep creating psychologically safe environment. Where candor is expected possible it critical feedback and they do this in two fundamental ways. You know, one is behavioral the other structural and the behavioral is that. That cat mill will often say things like, you know, he'll say, here's a mistake. I made right because leaders have to go first leaders have to show that they know that they're fallible human beings. He shows up with humility with curiosity with interest with fallibility, and then the other structural in a setting up meetings and sessions where they're designed in in thoughtful ways to make it easier for us to give each other candid feedback or to to really critique the movie and. And he'll say things like early on all of our movies are bad in their terrible. And he says that not because that's, you know, necessarily good news. But because he wants everyone to know that's just part of the journey. There's no way to get to magnificent unless we go through bad and inadequate and sappy and boring along the way, and we just keep pushing back, and we keep making it better in this film that I'm making his my baby. I don't want you to criticize my baby. But I have to kind of realize no, I do want you to because I'd much rather get it from you now, then get it in the box office later.
