"A brochure video. Those are some of the best. I think a book is one of the best ways to get your message out there. You've written multiple books. You've been incredibly successful and perfect. It attracts a lot of right. Fit people into your universe right big time in a way. I'm not saying anything. That's all that different. But i found a way to package it uniquely and provide an experience a service that provides a different outcome in a different result than most people are used to and instead of usually taking three months or three years or forever or never to do. We actually get most of this done in three days So he figured out a way to package it away. And that's that's what. My unique value proposition is ben as it's like one place to get it all and it took me thirty five years to figure out what that means and how to do it and how to put together the right. Who's to do more than i'm capable of. You know it's like i don't do this all myself. It's i think it's kind of impossible for one person to do. And why would you wanna do it by yourself. fire nation. i mean it's just a better world when we're doing it together. It's that power of teamwork which you know honestly can make the dreamworks so think about that and think about all of these ams. The michael dropped on top. You going down that process.

You share with us here today. Give us any call to action of how we can connect more with what you have going on. And then we'll say goodbye. I think the biggest takeaway. I have is You know as as i'm approaching a period in my life when my son's leaving for college i've been married twenty years. I in a lotta ways. I've got the life i always dreamed of. It's certainly is when i was younger. And what i can tell. You is a lot of what i pursued. Didn't make me happy. It left me empty inside. Because i don't think i did all the deep meaningful hard work on the journey and after meeting so many incredibly successful people who pursue dream. They don't honor who they have evolved into and they continue pursuing the same values that they used to think were important and one day they wake up and they're like I'm the i'm after there. I thought was important. But it's not satisfying. It's not whole what i've been chasing really isn't what my soul's desired. And when they really do the work they really listen they really pay attention to what and they realize man. I missed a lot of football games and soccer games and those irreparable moment or ear replaceable moments with my children. My wife There's something bigger and all this stuff isn't what the game's all about. So you know. Being poor sucks but it sucks if You know one day a wake up and you've got fifty million dollars in the bank and You know you're at the end.

How to Achieve Your Greatest Purpose With Serial Entrepreneur Michael Koenigs
"Let's go through the stages of purpose you broken down into three different stages. What is that all about her right. So think of like this our first stage or what i often call are doing stages imagine when you get paid to do something that you could be flipping burgers working at a gas station or whatever that may happen to be. It's task oriented. Where really you are a meat puppet. You know you're just doing something for the money and also you're trying to just cover your basic needs your maslow's hierarchy of needs in the grand of things and the next level is where you're at your knowing phase and you are maybe getting paid for knowing something's got to be a white collar job But then you go through your next phase in life for your at your being phase and that is where you're paid for who you are not what you know not what you do and i think there's a fourth level to this so this is different than the stages but the force level is being a full human expression. Not just a human being meaning to to express yourself where you're being rewarded for your expressions in life now. What does that mean in terms of the first second and third stages so first stage is the basic needs. The maslow's the second stage is The experiences you're providing in the third stage has to do with true transformation your true purpose in life where you've done the work you know who you are. You know your greatest value. Your unique abilities are what we call your superpowers and you found a way to provide huge transformative value. But here's the big kicker. The highest state is when you help other people find their purpose and you help them. Identify and and In help them achieve and be in that state all the time so that is really usually the final stage of most people's lives is helping people identify find live inside their

"But you'll probably engage something will start happening. Yes. And I was a Waldorf teacher and we definitely used music every day as part of our curriculum and it's not just separated into go to music class, come back. It's throughout the day. And it's really powerful. And it feels good. That this feels good. Your book is a great introduction for parents of young children. I'm going to give it to my daughter who's having a baby in the spring. So, you know, just to have that to know that. And I think it gives permission. You've really given parents permission to sing your baby song and each your baby's name has its own song. And that's just gonna live and amplify with them and change and evolve. I hope that our listeners will find that musical place within them so that they can just relax and enjoy and bring some just silliness and fun. And, you know, we've had a lot of months that we had to be pretty serious about stuff. And it's lightened up and it can be a benefit to us as the adults and to our children too. Absolutely. It's never a one way street raising children. You're either both in misery or you're both enjoying it. So let's go for the joy. We want the joy. Jack the deck for happiness and, you know, all the developmental things that we know music brings. And where can our listeners find out more about you and your work? I have a Twitter account now. It's about 5 days old and I think I have three followers among them. You, Jennifer, you're number four. God. So the book has QR codes that you can you just scan with your phone and it goes straight to my website where you get the music that'll help people do things. So there's a bit about me there. The school's website, which is a code clinic dot com. There's a lot of information about philosophy and that kind of thing. Of course, all of those links will be in the show notes because that's what our gen does put them all in there. And I just so appreciate you bringing this reminder bringing this back to us in the world of just how important music is and that you are teaching these beautiful young children in Paris, lucky them. One of my goals with the book to tell you the truth is that I really believe in this so much, I would love to this needs to get outside of Paris and this school. I'm actively looking into investment that will allow for teacher training. I love it. Parent training. Especially in the U.S. right now where you're facing a child care. Crisis. Absolutely education crisis..

"Of music it is. And again, I feel like there's an incipient ban on the idea of encouraging your children to be The Rock band. It will do them every matches. It won't do them. It won't have this grueling absolute training that classical musicians have to go through. Or chess players or athletes. But they will reap a lot of benefits. And I just feel like, because we have this classical music gold standard idea, parents would probably discourage a certain kind of parent would discourage their child from wanting to have their own Little Rock band. And a certain kind of parent is going to discourage it just because oh my gosh. Seriously, I have to listen to that noise because let's face it a young teenage rock band is not necessarily going to be the most pleasant thing to be listening to while you're trying to do whatever. But when we make room for our children to experiment to make messes, that's what they need to do in order to figure out how to grow how to make beauty. You have to have the space and the permission to make a mess before you can create a thing of beauty. Of course, absolutely. Absolutely. Can you give us maybe one or two things that we could do with our kids, the minute our listeners stop listening to this podcast? And maybe, you know, younger child older child, but we always like to put in some practical ideas for our listeners. What are a couple of things that they could maybe haven't thought of doing or haven't done for a while or something new that they could try? Okay, well, I think one of the most basic things that can get people a little loosened up is think about a piece of music that you love as a parent. And it can be absolutely anything. And if you really absolutely love that piece of music, put it on, put it on loud and just invite your child to do something with you. And it could be banging on a pot with a spoon. It can be dancing with you. It can be inventing their own lyrics to something, making comments about it. As soon as you enter into this doing it together, you're in a duet, you're already communicating on a very physical level. And I think that that just kind of invites and I've seen children get so excited when they're just dancing with their parents. And you can take this the fact that you're moving in synchronization is one of the key elements of how we work together as human beings and even actually in our bodies. And as soon as a child is synchronizing with somebody else, whether it's vocally, physically, by Tapping their hands or dancing, there's this very physical feeling visceral thing of being with somebody else. And you know, if you both know, of course, attachment, nearly childhood is so absolutely key. And this brings the parent and the child together in a kind of something deeper than words. And it can evolve into something else. Maybe the next day, you decide you're going to listen to it again and this time you're going to play play with it on the drums or whatever. This is an easy one to adapt when you have older kids because when your kids are little, it's very much you can introduce the music that you love when your kids get to be tweens and teens, let them bring you music that they love. And yeah, you might not think you love rap. I don't care whatever it is. You might not think you like country music..

"Is magic because one of the fun things we do is we say everything in music. So come into the circle is in a circle in a circle in a circle right now, and if you start if a teacher starts saying, come on kids, it's time to go in the circle. It's time. Come on, please. Getting louder and louder. And what happens is as soon as you hear, all the kids go scrambling into the circle. It almost feels they're just music engages more than words. Maybe it's because it's exceptional more exceptional for the children. Live music engages. In the case of that family whose children are interrupting what happens when children are making music together is they begin they like the sound of the piece they're making. So if their job in the piece is to play this. All on a xylophone, they're watching what's going on, but they're not going to leave their dose so on the xylophone because it's sounding so good. And they get very excited about how this is sounding how this is working. I just had an amazing thought and memory. Joan, I wrote this blog post a while ago, and it was how to deal with the troublemaker. You guys know I'm going to put the link in the show notes. But Janet, we've been doing this podcast for a long time and you know that my youngest son, Sam, he's now 15. He is not what you would think of as a musical kid in that that's not his thing. He's 15, his thing at this point is mowing lawns, dirt bikes and motors. That's his thing. And when he was a kid in school, he hated music class, and he got in trouble in music class, all the time, right? Well, he's bored. Exactly, because he was bored. But this one time the teacher gave him the very important job in a piece. And I don't even remember what the piece was, but it was the xylophone. And he had to do a certain thing at a certain time. And I went to that concert. And he took it so seriously, because for one, he had a job and he was entrusted with it. And the other thing that I think sometimes happens in our schools, especially, it's the good kids that get picked out to do the things like that. It's the ones who listen. It's the ones who are not causing trouble. Whereas this teacher took some of the troublemakers quote unquote gave them a job engaged them by definition, they had to listen, because he didn't want to not play it at the right time. So he had to listen, focus..

"So teachers aren't feeling empowered. Parents aren't feeling empowered. And they're missing this incredible window in which Janet is you began the beginning you were talking about this supercharging you can do with your child. At this point, we have so many serious neuroscientific studies that are pointing to the immense number of things that music helps children with notably focus attention, intuition. All these things that are considered actually even more important than IQ. So I feel like one of the reasons that we're not doing it enough is first of all because it's not new. You know, we like new things. Yes. That is a very human tendency, especially technologically driven society and frankly if it's available to everybody Joan, we can't make a lot of money off of it. So, but, you know, that's obviously not the point. We all agree that at this point it's kind of like climate change. You want to make money out of it or do you want to save people? And given the given the level of children with ADHD problems, focusing in this sort of zap generation of their parents, they see their parents on smartphones all the time. It has its consequences. We see a huge increase in attention problems in school. Girls and voice combined. Yeah. You know, Janet, you know that I am all about easy. I have four kids, anything that can hit multiple things at once is way better than one at a time interventions because I don't have time for all of that. So when I read your book and you were pointing out, you know, music, it helps us develop physically through moving to music and being part of music. We're developing the vestibular system, which is part of our ear, which I had just learned a week previous to reading your book is so important for being able to focus on the written word and reading and developing empathy, focus listening..

Again, that's boys alive dot com slash call for your free breakthrough session with me. What if you knew there was something that could supercharge your young child's development? That would help your young child develop emotionally intellectually and creatively. I'm guessing you jump at the chance. And I'm guessing you've already been doing that. If you have a young child and you've ever played patty cake or responded when your baby or toddler made funny sounds and you repeated them back. And if you've ever launched into song and silly dance parties in the kitchen, then you're already harnessing this power. And this is the power of music. Our guest today is a Juilliard School trained musician and in 1986 she opened a conservatory in Paris for early childhood music, education. Putting together what she has taught and learned from the children over the years. And combining that with the advances in neuroscience, Joan Koenig has written about the critical years when children are most sensitive to musical exposure and most receptive to its benefits in her new book entitled the musical child using.

He's only three and a half so it's not like hasn't but i say like just last night like some people are good at some things and some people are good at other things. They said like mommy's a really good dancer. Mama can't sing that kind of thing because he'll say look. I'm the best at this. I said yeah. You're really good at this.

I'm hopefully going to say maybe weren't great at that.

Recognize that i'm not saying i'm that don't think i'm one of those people but it was a number and it was number that i wasn't happy with and my whole day was ruined and i instantly went back to that time of weighing myself every day. And and you know again. It's something you've failed. It didn't do the best i could. I let myself down. I you know it's a number stupid. Did you ever make yourself throw up. Oh yeah as i like to say i dabbled and believe me but i never had a taste for it i did. I definitely did that. I when did that start. And when did it in.

I'm going to read a please don't take home. I'm going to one of the things i like to do. We have the disturbing. I told you about on the website and i think i might start For each episode just kind of randomly. Pick somebody's survey and read some things about it too. Close the show with so. I'm going to do that in just a moment but before we do that. I'm going to say goodbye to you. And tell you what i love about you. Gosh i'm going to brush. I love that. You're funny that you're open and you're honest and you're good friend and your fun to converse with wealth thank you. The feeling is very mutual. And i had a great time doing this i was. I actually wasn't anxious about doing it. I was actually very excited. I like talking about myself. Who doesn't right so thank you. I've gotta really appreciate you. Talk about stuff that i know was was painful for free and talk about but i think there are going to be some people that will feel comforted and feel less alone by by what you had to say. I have to say. And i know we're trying to wrap this up. When my brother died. I was shocked. At how many people had been touched by suicide. I was really really surprised i had. I didn't know it was that common thing and it's just my my parents and i both were like. Oh my god this is crazy but it. It does help to hear other people talk about it. I hope it helps. It helps me now. Every situation is different but is there anything in in closing. If somebody is in the situation that you were in that has somebody close to them that that that took their life. Is there anything that you would like to to to say to them. Well this is this might offend some people and it might took or it might sound like. I'm the color coding but i honestly believe at least for my brothers case and again. This was someone who had dealt with this whole life. Who thought it out and planned it. I honestly think that.

"I'm used to a different situation on on the dish because we would all their stuff and then we'd add and we top and we'd and we but it's not that kind of collaborative process. This is more like you put your joke. People don't really fix it casually. That happens but it's just very different from what i'm used to. So it's more like you pick your joke and like you read all your jokes for one picture. And then the next person reads all their jokes that same picture and then you go around. So i'm feeling okay so one minute i'm literally. I'm getting fired. She going to say that girl is no good. Get rid of her. I've thought this every time by the way and then like two rounds later. I have a huge laugh and i and you're the best writer in the best in the world and she loves me and everything's great and you know i'm a. I'm going to get a spin off from the show yet. I'm the thirty eight year old. Who still needs the approval of you know all everyone in the room and ridiculous and so it can change like if i wonder is that a the projecting into the future to me. I wonder why is it. Always that it's your peasant or you're a king. Yeah you're never inbetween there's never there's never any moderation in the future. Is that a thing about artists and creative people or devices or is that just you know. I think i think there's nothing romantic about being in the middle. It's not it's not interesting. Yeah it's it's either on the lowest of the low. i'm fantastic. Yeah you're right. I think it's which. I actually do think i'm sort of in the middle like i really. I don't think i'm ingenious. And i don't think i'm talentless but there are times where i think both those right but mostly i don't write mostly i just but yeah it's like i don't know it's just i remember this this moment when i was about ten years old and everybody else had had kind of Maybe actually i was about twelve years old and all the other guys were starting to get into puberty and stuff and i wasn't growing. It was small than everybody else. And i had problems with my body and i was ashamed of it all and i had classes and i had friends and it wasn't lonely but i felt like everybody was was normal and wasn't and i remember one of our teachers had a nova. The car you know. Remember the noble and it looked to me like the most average car. There was nothing special about it. And i remember thinking i want to be the nova of people. I just want to be aspiration. That yes i wanted. I pictured myself as an adult driving a nova and think. Then i'll feel okay sterckele. Yeah i just wrote a piece about how my aspirations are very middle of the road. Like i just. I just wanted to earn money doing something i liked. That's like i don't have right. Yeah but i think it. I think it's good in a sense. But i also think i probably cut myself off a little bit by thinking like that because people who think they're gonna be movie stars either. They're all crazy and they either do it. because they're crazy or they don't and then it. Everything's big disappointment. I didn't want to have a big fall. So i never said like oh. I'm going to be this. You know the world's most famous whatever right but you know the ones that dream of being a movie star and then become a movie star. Don't you think all of them are disappointed because there's aspects to it that they never pictured and it can't possibly fulfil what your fantasy i'm sh- yeah i guess so. I'm sure i mean. I'm sure parts of it. Australian fantastic but I don't know where it was going to get back to something. Oh about feeling like you're than you wanted to be the nova. Yes i wanted to be. Nor i didn't want to be a sports car right. I just wanted to you know. I think it was. I just wanted to blend in. Yeah and did you try really hard to london. Yes oh yeah you did see. I always find this interesting. Because i was always. I always felt. I wasn't the pretty girl. I was always the one who's kind of outside of the thing. I always had friends so it wasn't like you said it wasn't alone are always had friends but my friends were cool and i was not decidedly. Not rosettes your impression no No sure okay. Why did they hang out with you because you were funny. Yeah i was funny and smart and nice. And but i wasn't puberty thing like i was super behind You didn't hit puberty purely till you're twenty three. Let's talk about that. Yeah very strict. I have until oliver was coming out of my vagina. Which is weird. That is so weird. No i all of her. Oliver's her son i should clarify that. He's actually. She had the dvd the musical oliver coming out of china. Now we understand why. Dvd's are shaped the way they are. I was gonna say getting to know you. But that's not all over. But that being said i never tried to blend in because i thought that would be embarrassing if i try to look like these girls who were really pretty and tried to wear the clothes that they did. I thought that that would. I thought that people would laugh at me for trying their so. I didn't try. I wasn't like like crazy. Individualistic but warlike crazy prairie skirts and hats and things that are completely not in style. Because i thought it would be. Do you know what. I'm saying. I thought it would be I can't try to my hair that everyone will just laugh at me. Because i can't do it. I'm not a pretty girl. So why would i try to dress. Like i know my place. I know my breasts for my place. Yes exactly so. Jimmy always tells me about trying to fit in and stuff like i mean. He tells you about trying to like win what he would he did like are like about joining the bat trying to join the basketball team. Even though he was three foot seven in his words. And why on earth would you do that. But i think i stopped myself from doing those things because who am i. Who am i to try to do that. Know so limited myself for sure. What are some other of the snapshots from from your life particularly early in your life if you can think of any i can Okay so i remember so. I had a best friend nora. Who is still my best friend. I know nor yes. Yes she was just here and so we've been friends since we were in kindergarten and she was always pretty one and i was always the goofy one and That's a nice way putting it.

"You know talk to him last time or just like you know had dreams for a long time and still casually about you know. Well i guess the rooms are sort of about stopping him but it my conscious time. I don't think like oh. I should have done this. I should have done that. That much. Except for. Because i. Because i know that when i did try to talk to him it was very difficult. So it's not like i never tried. We all tried. It's just when you're talking to someone in that state. I'm not a professional i'm not. I'm not hyper intelligent. I don't know whether supposed to say or do so. And plus people in that in that state. I think if they're like. I feel you don't wanna be around people. That's the depression want to isolate. You wanna go into corner like a dog. That's getting ready to die and just lick your wounds and have anybody but you and just stare at that bare lightbulb for two hours and replay your life and think that you're gonna find the answer there or in some about the future that's going to save your life in reality that's the quicksand and our mind. The the path to safety is doing that thing of getting out of our comfort zone and talking to somebody insane saying hey. I'm feeling really hopeless. I'm really scared right now. I'm feeling like the world is is passing me by. He had talked to me over the years about that in certain ways. But i just didn't know other than recommending therapy and medication which he didn't take into later much later. I didn't really know what else to say. I did see that. His life wasn't working out the right way. So i couldn't be like oh you're crazy of everything. He didn't have everything he was severely lacking in his life. And i can't get in his brain and i as much as i've suffered depression. It was not stance So i can't pretend to understand exactly what that is. I was gonna say. Let me through this thought out at I have a lot of friends in Recovery from from drugs and alcohol and some of them sometimes go back to to drinking. And using knowing that it's the worst thing in the riot forum and you can sit down and i've had conversations with people and told them look. This is what's going to happen. This is what's going to happen this. You're not unique. You are going to die if you don't get help if you go to do this on your own. You're going to die. Statistically that's what happened. And i have had friends die go. Yes because they they are reaching out to another person talking about their fears talking about you know their pain is more painful to them than the possibility of die is worse to them. So the reason. I bring that up to you is even if you said things to andrew. There's also a good chance that wouldn't have done anything because people don't wanna get. He knew he was depressed right and all his friends you know detroit talked to him. Yeah it's not like it's it was hidden thing. Where guys seem so happy-go-lucky everyone was aware wasn't shy about it but and then the other thing the other guilt thing is that it was hard to be around him sometimes. Yeah and so. I probably didn't make myself as available as i could have. And you know. I have a little boy and then maybe i use that as an excuse but it was just. It was difficult being around someone. who's depressed. I mean you know what as someone who's been depressed and being around people it can be very difficult. You feel helpless because you don't know what to say after a while and and they're there to be around and there was always tension and i was never one hundred percent myself with my brother. I mean i just wasn't i was not always like you will walk on eggshells. Scherf like i was walking on asia's which i do magnificently by the way i have taken that to a new level. Actually eggshell shoe. They almost look like ballerina shoes and then they realized that you have to cook the eggs. I also makes a. I never thought of that. So yeah i am the queen of walking on eggshells like which is not a good thing. I really wish. I were much more authentic and like confrontational. But i don't want people to be upset or so the it was sort of not a good combination and also there was just in general. They're just some tension because we just we're very different people. I mean we loved each other and we'd like to hang out. We have fun but we were very different people and yeah. It was hard to be around and you know what i think. It's okay to need a break from apple that are mentally ill. Because they're a fucking handful raining. It's drain him when they're related to you. You don't feel like you can just call them off right you know. And i didn't have any desire to just cut him off but it was difficult. Yeah yeah. I have a friend who does not want to get help but wants an audience for to talk about stuff and it a certain point. I have to pull away. Because i'm not. It's abusive to your friends to dump on them and yet not want to get someone who complains about being an abusive relationship but they don't get out and do for you. The best thing. I think you can do is say. Hey listen i have done. All i can do at this point. It's just frustrating to me and it and it feels healthy. And so i for not wanting to get help i think pride. I think a lot of people. This is the part. I just don't understand because my family is so comfortable with depression numbering perfect that. It's so hard for me to understand that you would rather.

"You're you're wishing that you're depression was more of beyond right. Well in that nebulous zone. Where you're like. I don't know whether or not to take this seriously am my wrong. Is that what you're kind of. I guess that's part of it. I felt i think i'm what they call. low-grade low depression. But it's just been so consistent through my life that it's just been. I guess i just thought it was my personality for another words like oh this is kind of shitty things happen to me and i'm negative and i'm pessimistic and all those things are true But it didn't help that. I probably have a chemical right. And at least i'm sure hereditary sort of designed to be that way and also. I wasn't shown how to not be that way. And so yeah. I i remember the specific time when i first went to therapy was that i was live. How old you. I guess nine hundred twenty and i was living by myself in my first apartment. My little studio apartment and supposedly with the whole my whole life and sitting on the ground like in front of bed and just staring into space and go. Do i know that and really kind of getting scared. And then i remember. I don't know how long after maybe a day or so maybe a week. I don't know being at my parents house and just kind of breaking down and telling them like this is not good. I'm not doing well. And that's when i got into therapy. What was the feeling that you had was of paralysis. difficulty making decisions feeling negative about the future. What would describe all that. That i sort of think that the negative about the future thing was sort of always there and definitely the i do. I still feel paralysis. I in a sense that i feel like i feel like i never lived up to my potential. I realized this that as a kid. I was always worth wasn't living up to my potential and i still feel like that but then you know what maybe i have done so. This is far as it goes. I don't know maybe i'm you. I as much potential as i thought. But so i'm sort of getting all over the place but so it was just a feeling of like not knowing. Yeah i don't know what to do. I feel empty may feel disconnected Don't have hope that sort of thing. That's the worst feeling that feeling that you don't have hope that you're never going to get out of it right and that this is the way you are. You're fucked and that's how you're going to be for the rest of life. I just thought that was wired. That way. And i do think that to some extent like i'm still not healed him like The most positive person in the world. But i definitely have changed. Yes and it's not a prison. It's not a death sentence but if you don't do anything about it and you just try to go to your own mind to fix it. I think it is a prison. Well yeah i mean my you know my brother. I can talk about it but so my brother killed himself last year and brother andrew my brother andrew and Definitely he was in a prison. I mean he definitely felt hopeless. I know that's what it was. There was there was no hope there was no there was no getting out of it for him and he happened on. The knee stopped. And you know that had stopped. You know what's really shameful is that i never asked him i. Never because he had such a history of being up and down up and down and another thing never thought of it was that he was probably bipolar. But i just never thought of it. I just thought he was depressed right so but anyway i been so used to him being up and down the the fact that he was down didn't trigger in me. Oh he's off his meds. I just thought this is him because he was so severely depressed due note. I'm saying so. I will always probably feel guilty about that that i didn't you know taylor. Hey what's going on. Because i was it just didn't seem just seem like this is the pattern of his life. So well how how first of all. I think it's completely natural that you would go to to that place to want to blame yourself or to feel guilty. I think i think that's natural and inevitable. But i hope you realize how completely wrong that is that. There's nothing that you could have done. Most of me understands that in current. Actually that there's nothing i could have done. But that's even more frustrating link. I've all i keep peppering my therapist with questions about like well. What if not what. I had done this. But like what if he had been more successful but he killed himself because that was in his brain or wouldn't or that. Like how much of it was circumstantial on how much of it was. You know physiological earner chemistry. Let's let's look at that for for a second. And i'm assuming there's going to be people listening to this podcast at have had people close to them take their take their lives. What are some of the questions that you ask yourself like your host your to your therapist so people know that they're not alone in feeling that all i could have done something right.

Cracking the Leadership Code | Alain Hunkins
"All right. Let's get to our interview today. I am speaking to somebody who's been working for over twenty years as an executive coach and as a trainer as a seminar leader with hundreds of top executives around the world fortune fifty companies all over the world very diverse background. He's written his first book. It's a gift to us. It's called cracking the leadership code cracking the leadership code. What I love about this book is that it is extremely practical. So this is an inspirational. This isn't just opinions or some academic model. This is how you break the patterns that you might have. Because he's seen it in all of these clients over the years. Our guest is Alon Hawkins. Welcome to the lead X. leadership show. Thanks so much. It's great to be here with you today. So I mentioned you know in the in the intro. You've got a brand new book cracking the Leadership Code. Congratulations why now. I decide to to put down your wisdom into a book well for me. This journey has been one of twenty three years of working with thousands of leaders around the world. And what I started doing. I was watching and I saw these patterns of behavior and both the good stuff and bad stuff and I started taking notes and the notes became stories and the stories became blog posts. The blog posts became chapters. The chapters became parts and ultimately led to this book which is really in some ways. The distillation of twenty three years of experience of really getting into the INS and outs know everyone wants to be a great leader. But what does that really mean and ultimately I think it boils down to the mindset. We have and the choices that we make and so the book is really this. Comprehensive Guide to helping people accelerate their learning curve to become a better leader. You said a couple of Actually really important things there and the first of which you you you just gave away one secret to writing a book which is don't think about writing a book thinking about writing a blog post and then another at another exact. I had a great mentor once and I and I've been thinking about writing a book. I know lots of people have. I have been thinking about writing a book for twenty years and I had a great mentor. Profoundly obviously wonderful thing he said writers right and I think the discipline of the blog and for me it became it became it was really messy at the beginning really messy and not very good but really giving myself the discipline of one post a week and then sticking to that and I did that for years and that started to develop the discipline of writing and the other thing you know you mentioned about all of the work you've done. All the clients have is seen patterns of behavior. And that's what I try to tell people like everybody wants to be a great leader. We have. We have usually the intent to be a great leader. Sometimes we have the knowledge of a great leader but its sometimes tough to see our own negative patterns or to create new habits and patterns. And that's one of the things I liked about. Your book is not only is it? I mean this is actionable. This isn't your inspirational. Climbed down the mountain leadership. Now this is like do this and keep doing it you know and look out for these pitfalls but before we get into these behaviors you say in the book that old school leadership has stopped working. So what maybe was old school leadership in? Why is it stopped working? Yes so if we think about what is old school leadership you know. I saw this great quote recently and I. I don't know who it's from. But they basically said that. Tradition is peer pressure. That comes from dead people and I just love that. Okay if we think about some of the traditions that we around leadership if we go back a few generations you know we this all started this whole idea of leading in organization started in the industrial revolution and the world was so different than and the people who are in charge of figuring this out. Were were engineers mechanical engineers. Who saw work as this mechanical problem to be solved and that's where the term human resources comes from because humans were seen as parts in a bigger machine. I mean humans. Were not your competitive advantage. The factory was and your big factory machines competitive advantage so people again back this time. Ninety five percent of people were doing manual labor and I get into all this history in the book even it in greater detail but because people were treated that way it was all about controlling and managing people and the belief was that people were not to be trusted. And so there was this cauldron of fear and control. And that's what people put up with for a really long time because part of the value proposition back then was if you're a good worker and kept your your head down and just did your job and just shut up. And you're told you have a job for life and you probably have a pension on the other end as well as we know that world has gone away and so if we look at you know today fifty. Nine percent of the workforce is Gen Y. and Gen Z. And people are craving new type of leadership because what we know that align between work and life. There's no more work life balance. It's all one thing it's your life and so people are craving work in organizations that have a clear sense of purpose and they want leaders. Who are going to connect with them at a real human empathetic level and they want people who are going to communicate with them to be authentic and they want to work on collaborative teams. Add more and more people are working in a team environment and they want transparency to be able to do that. So it's like the playbook has changed and leadership needs to catch up because the rules of the game no longer apply the old rules. Don't apply anymore and Elaine I. This is the week that I've been doing a bunch of interviews with A lot of thought leaders such as yourself and I am hearing this recurring theme. Which really shows that you know. We need to pay attention to take action on this. Yesterday I spoke to two Doug Koenig former. Ceo Campbell. Soup and big proponent of employee engagement and he was making the same point and of course he's got a few years even on us in terms of variance and sure in wisdom and he talked. He's he said you know back when it was just about you know. Industrial Revolution came. Maybe I q and some other things when it became about relationships. Then it's the the issue and he said the same thing though that now the newest generation it's about this you know this this Needing some some mission and some motivation you know from a deeper level. It's like a whole new world even beyond just like. Oh we got how to work on a team and you Sorta gave away one of the I. I'm always forgetting so. I like simple models. And and yeah. It's your book. I'm telling people you gotta read this about the three Cs and you know you hinted at them. You Know Cassian communication collaboration and in a short format. Podcast like this. We can't get to deepen anyone but let's let's touch on them and let's start with with connection and you right. That empathy is really the basis for connection. Tell us more about that sure. Yeah we get into connection. Let's let's step back for a quick moment. What is leadership leadership at? Its core is a relationship. It's a human relationship between the person who leads the person who chooses to follow and so at the core of that is got to be human connection. And that's what empathy is and my favorite definition of empathy is. Empathy is showing people that you understand them and care how they feel and on the surfaces. You hear that we can all step back and go get it makes complete sense but actually in the moment when we're all running too fast with too much to do and we're not only leading but also having to get our own projects done empathy can get short shrift and in fact in the book go through six different challenges that people face to leading with empathy. I'll just give you an example of one. One is impatient right because the fact is to really care how people feel means I need to give them my undivided attention in my presence for a while and I got so much else going on. It's really hard to do that. So I go through six different challenges and then I talk about some of the things. We can do simple actions that you can take to become more empathetic and strengthen your connection with people. An example of that is to listen with purpose is very different to listen to someone. Just okay go ahead tell me get it got it good. I hear what you're saying versus really listening with purpose to seek to deeply understand where they're coming from and their perspective because the fact is there's nothing like being heard and valued and understood that makes people feel connected right at our core. We all WanNa be seen recognized and valued so if we want to lead. We need to understand that. Is THE FAST TRACK CONNECTION?

The pride of the PLA
"That's not every day you get to go on a Chinese warship, but for China. Correspondent Bill Birtles the rare opportunity came up during a naval fleet. Review off the port city of ching Tao, and, despite terrible, weather, and heavy handed media management. He says it was a day out like no other. Several kilometers out to sea of China's east coast, watching the pride of the Palay nineties flight go by, at close range from my vantage point on a training ship. Chidi Guang, China's first aircraft carrier. The Liaoning is just one hundred meters away, and yet I can barely see it. It's almost completely lost in the heavy fog and constant rain. The reason I was on a Chinese navy, ship in the middle of a massive international fleet review was because of diplomacy. This actually wasn't my first time on a Chinese warship my very first assignment for the IB see and China was to cover joint drills between the astride Sean's and Chinese off the coast of Guangdong province back ban. I managed to get on a Chinese ship in the port, but this time was different. We were. Being taken out to witness more than thirty Chinese submarines destroyers and the carrier go by president Xi Jinping was on Jason ship observing the review that they were also seventeen foreign ships, including HMO Melvin, which is why we were invited. Astrid was in good company. The Japanese South Koreans Vietnamese and Indians were among the nations that sent ships like Astrid area, all of them had their differences with China yet, this was a goodwill parade. The city of ching, Dow was in lockdown for the event, I asked one tourist retiree if he was excited about watching the naval parade from the shore, he told me he was disappointed that police had blocked all the roads to ching Dow's Haba. So we couldn't walk down and see all the ships himself. He wasn't happy about it. But as I was. Talking to him a couple came over and corrected him sighing the heavy handed security misses a normal and other countries do the same. They were Cain to assure me. It wasn't security. Overkill, Justin necessary safety measure. Of course. If the strategy indefens- falls gathered more than fifty ships in sight. Sydney Haba for a parade and then blocked all the access to the harvest side. I suspect people would not be too happy, but this is China and extreme security is the norm here. So then it was time for what when Cam for the fleet review with my cameraman Steve Young. We convened at the hotel with other invited journalists and began the first of many security checks. All our equipment was meticulously sqauad. We were. Then boss to the port where we went through to lots of airports styles security to get onto the ship. It took ages. But once on board, we will take into a lodge, dining room where we were served a box lunch vacuum packed bheith assaulted Koenig, some cake, and fruit. And then now ship again. Chugging out to see all this was fairly smooth, but there was one very obvious problem. We've come to ching now to get amazing shots of dozens of warships lined up fighter jets in formation flying above us. The might of China's rapidly growing navy on full display and yet the weather was atrocious. Thick fog and constant rain meant we could barely see more than one hundred meters in front of us when it was time for the parade to begin. We couldn't see more than one ship at a time Justice, the Ryan new intensified further, the announcing declared the Liaoning aircraft carrier was going by this was the mine event after all, and yet everyone on day was staring into the grave wondering where the heck it was. West for us is the moment when the astride Ian ships, sail by Steve long couldn't see HMAS Melvin even with the maximum zoom on his camera, you couldn't take a worse style for Nival fleet review and with it over, we scrambled to a pace to camera on dick. This is awesome flexing a celebration. I tonight Melvin from Friday or is here. I thought my summarize something senior Chinese official had said at a function, the night before that the parade, according to China wasn't about muscle flexing. And yet, one of my military minders listening in took umbrage at that as the ship chopped back to poor. He warned us that we must delete that he's the camera or risk access to the navy in future. Such threads and not uncommon in China. But it seemed to me it was a bit light to be threatening us given that all the filming was done in the story pretty much finished the pace the cameras stayed in our report as Dido all ou- shots of the warships lost in the fog. Visually stunning naval parade. It wasn't but a Diana's, see with China's navy is not something you forget easily. The frustrations of correspondence life, Bill Birtles, there reporting from Beijing or ching Tao, more accurately.
