They released the birds so they wouldn't die then and then they just started you know doing their own thing and another one is because the old budweiser the busch gardens theme park is that was my seventies.

Why did they pray. Yeah fuck so. Yeah judge jonathan from corn. He got sick with covert earlier in the month and he had to cancel some shows and after he like getting the all clear Like in terms of him being returning negative tests and things like that he probably hit the road again but like his performances have been like just this ghoulish reminder that like cove. Come fuck you up. An antibac- her. Here's the thing. When he when he first cancelled his shows they said his vaccination status was unknown but then afterwards they said he was he was vaccinated. But you still sick. So what regard you know. Whatever it was i just interesting to see that the sort of lead up to some of the first shows were like kind of underlying how grim everything was so before one of the like i return shows the guitarist brian head. Welsh sent a message to like the corn fans. And it was like like we need you guys so here. Is brian head welsh. Saying hey like jonathan needs you guys. He's kinda not doing well.

Prayers all of it We have shows coming up so all of you guys check the dates. Whatever show. you're going to throw him some love and energy man he needs you more than ever. So yeah that was a bit of a preview of things to come because he then went on to do or show where he basically you know he was in chicago and he needed oxygen at certain parts of the show. Because it was just like really you could just tell how exhausted he was and so like they set up like a big thrown for him to like kind of you know chill gone and you know how like old time rock stars will put the throwing up to be like an moving anymore.

Oliver korn who director of the effective and cognitive institute of offenburg university in germany.

Beyond Pandemic’s Upheaval, a Racial Wealth Gap Endures
"It's a 10 corporations across the country say they're making big investments in diversity, equity and inclusion. But are they really Bank of America launched a $1 Billion.4 Year campaign in 2020 on this week's edition of of Colors, a dialogue on race in America, with Chris Korn and JJ Green, Ebony Thomas, the racial Equity and economic Opportunity Initiatives executive at Bank of America, explained what it's all about on the podcast. We made this commitment back in June of 2020. And I think this commitment really enforces the connection we have to our community the importance of this in our community and what we know for generations is that Simen Systemic racism has created a racial wealth gap in America, and one of the elements of this billion dollar, commitment or billion dollar plus commitment is it's just support those communities of color and to close that help support to close that. Racial wealth gap. Today. White family has eight times the wealth of black families and five times out of Hispanic Latino families. And so we want to make sure that we are doing work in the space around entrepreneurship and innovation, housing, small business and quite honestly health to be able to support and close that wealth gap. If there were no pandemic, would we still be doing something like this? I think that the pandemic has definitely laid bare for us. The equities that we see particularly Communities of color around health. And so you know, I think this is a place that we we've had some work in that we've done some some elements of health. But the way that we've doubled down in health is really definitely connected to our response and wanting to support these

"Hear that it's a situation where if things didn't work out if you're not married you should be able to afford the rent on your your own and have some type of escape plan going into it. That's how you avoid being in the situation. I know it's not romantic. Don t you know. It's like an escape plan. That's not the most right right right but it's not romantic so i would go to my friends. I i know not. Everybody has friends who can help out but like friends are usually pretty clutch in these situations. I know that if i had a friend who needed to move out. Even if i didn't have an extra room i would say you can stay on my couch for a little bit. Try to help them out any way that i could. There's usually a way to remove yourself if you can't move out altogether like maybe you can keep your stuff there but spend your time not in the apartment and that can give you enough of a buffer but you should definitely not be sleeping in the same bed. I had an ex who i remember. Start dating someone else. And when they broke up they were still sharing the same bed. And we've had past guests of the podcast glow butler looking at you. Glow butlering glow when you had this last year. Name bedroom and everything. Yeah always out. And we'll come back for the essentials. Yeah being in the same. That's a recipe for disaster.

"It's interesting because a lot of those things have spilled over into the world of heterosexuals and i observed last summer in women's meteo when editors-in-chief across the board started getting called out for racism in for allowing racism to flourish under them. It was so interesting because it was a lot of the same conversations that had already happened in the community and watching the straight white women. Try to navigate. Call out culture. It was different verschoor Sometime i always think of this one example where it was after like the women's march and a person i know friend of mine posted and this is like a like a white woman and she's like it's super problematic. How many signs with ovaries on them. That i saw at the women's march because trans women are women. I'm like yes but also people are marching because they're overseas are being legislated so there's room for both to be true just because somebody's holding a sign that has ovaries on. It isn't a denial. That trans women are women or that trans. Men don't need to be included in these conversations about like abortion access. Or you know things like that. Yeah there's this attitude alike. One identity canceled out the other. Yeah like we contain multitudes. Like that's ron on the table apparently had happened to that. Yeah i was like i was like. Who are you policing. It like who's supposed to to feel bad. And like i guess you think you're serving woman but transform and don't want to be like shaming this woman who care about their ovaries like great. Yes and now it's just causing confusion for a second. I was like oh. Is that problematic. And i'm like wait. Wait a minute. No i don't know. Yeah yeah i guess it. Just know feminism. Yeah period i i have a shirt that says woman up and i'm increasingly afraid to wear it because i think this is human woman and i'm afraid that if i wear it people are like. Oh this is head over here. And he's like rub in our faces. Well anything that takes us back to how we started this conversation. Which is like feminism. Is not cool again right. We like a great five minutes of email and we all bought t shirts and capitalism have a big hand in destroying it the boss of it all the the marketing feminism especially after the women's march on hyper aware of it people could say just say pink pussy hats and i would freak out like i like right. That's really reevaluate. Our thought i had to reevaluate my relationship with feminism which is really basic core. You know like as it should be One more thing. Obviously you talk about fashion in your book. You're the editor in chief of nylon. I love this one chapter where you intertwined fashion and feminism and the way we see our bodies from the low.

"Beth israel i mean but it was also like they didn't expect to have a gay daughter so i think in with also didn't know what to do with me on. They didn't know what to do. When i didn't like stick to my mom's timeline. In the way my sister dead. Yeah doubt was a thing. Tuesday was like yeah. I was totally raised to be a feminist. But i was also raised with the expectation that i would want the same things that my parents wanted for themselves which is to get married and have a family really young and live in the suburbs of none of those things have come true for man it feels like dot is confusing. My parents i think being it queer it does give you like a different perspective on feminism. I never thought that my parents thought. I couldn't do things because i was a woman. It was just me and my sister. We didn't have a brother who is obviously treated different. Which is nice. But because i've only had relationships with women i haven't had to depend on men in my life and i think that gives you like such a different perspective of what's possible because i feel like sometimes it might feel like a little bit easy to go into that role of and there are women like allie long jokes about it and her special like yeah. Sometimes it feels like it would just be nice to be the housewife and to not have to worry about that stuff and it is that bad to admit that i like a terrible feminist for wanting that and as a lesbian i've always been like well that's never an option so i either need to figure out how to do it myself or make enough money to pay a man to lift that thing for me like yeah exactly i feel like i'm just trying to manifest early retirement for myself at this plant in just like not do anything and take care of myself. Yes that's the dream. Speaking of man and the patriarchy..

"Going to grapple with balancing the job stability security to worry about coming into this job market but also advocating for themselves like i see a lot of viral tiktok's that are twenty twenty one year olds even people in their early twenties just lecturing and making sure everyone who has their eyes on their video sees like don't ever work above your paygrade. They're just so much more evolved in. They have so much more access to this information. Like reading your book like seeing other tick talks. And so they're at least from the ones. I've seen seem to be very bold in that way. But then they're coming into such instability with this economy after kovic so. I don't know how that'll play out. But yeah i mean it's such interesting generational difference. I was at Twice and the first time i was there there was no union in the second time i was there. The editorial team had unionized and it was fascinating to me because the majority of the people in the union were the youngest editors and they were saying no to. The thing is that my generation had just agreed to. They were very clear on what their boundaries were on. What unacceptable salary. Wise on what an acceptable workload was and i found myself the last person in the office every day. And this was after. I left nylon like have boundaries. I'm not gonna make work my whole life. I was like. Hey i'm here till seven. That doesn't seem now crazy. The office was dead. There was nobody there. So i do think it happened really quickly. It feels very tangible. Yeah so jealous so happy for them. I'm so happy. I'm so happy for them. How about queer feminism and entering these bases as a queer woman. And you do talk about it in the book that a lotta time straight people. It's like unexpected. For them and it's trying to straddle this line of we need to be inclusive and not have the the norm and the assumption.

"I think. Then you are later in your career when you sat back and you're like okay. Well sometimes it's not gonna be the squeaky wheel or sometimes you have to be a little bit more mindful or you can't just go into the room. I think of the show. The bold hype. I'm guessing you're familiar with. Yeah i can't watch it. But i am. Yeah here. it's a lot of yeah. I've watched a season of it. And it's it's a lot of that just like these young girls coming in and they're gonna make a difference in like stand up and they're just like walking into the chiefs office on their like first day being like i'm going to do a story about this and you're like what. Yeah exactly that. And sometimes. I'm like where did that girl go like. I wish i it's a good thing. Yeah i wish. I could harness that energy and be as fearless as i was when i was first starting out but then it was like ten years later countless people who were very talented unheard working. Lose their jobs for no reason the fear set in now and now i have this like lucky to be employed feeling that has come after realizing. How quickly you can lose everything and i think just like the way when you're really young. Your sense of mortality isn't really fully formed. I think my sensei right. My sense of being unemployed wasn't really forms. Yeah i think to getting reprimanded almost like punished or kind of humiliated that is also a very common experience for women in their twenties to be reprimanded for being bold or for doing things like ahead of when they're supposed to and the rising up in your career at a fast pace and people are like. I'm not paying you this much. You're only twenty five. Meanwhile twenty five year old engineers in silicon valley are making two hundred thousand dollars. So if you don't want to pay me. You shouldn't expect me to do this. Level of work give. You're paying someone. Forty thousand dollars to write ten stories of the day. You can't expect those phrases That person is spending most of her time worrying about paying her ran her. She's going to eat. You get what you pay for a. That's something that's really broken in.

"Reach out to me and kind of unknowingly offend me. Talking about bipasha people to meet like an iranian woman and i kind of got upset by the way she was talking about. Bipolar people to me so candidly and i let her know and the way she waved off the conversation by saying so sorry. I'm just a problematic. Second wave feminist and that was supposed to be the end of the conversation. And i don't wanna work for her anymore one less client. She didn't she she doesn't really see you as right. That's what she said. That was a four that she's like. Oh my god. I'm so sorry i didn't even see you as a i don't see you as a person of color. I just see you as a lesbian. That's what she said is thank you for. Reminding me that carolyn. You're like okay now. This is like by phobic by relationship and have been with a woman for a long time but so she got so much wrong in one text message it's like it's not dot horrid to not be offensive right. I'm sorry to you. I think you just it's why the word has like a sour taste in my mouth. Sometimes to like all those instances in one. I do think a lot of it comes with the failures of white women being intersectional and in including other people and now the latest form of that in i think when we started talking about intersection. -ality we were talking about okay like other races but not so much other genders and gender non conforming people and trans women and even trans men. And that's where now the turfs in those conversations. It's like they're met is seems like they're mad that they have to be intersectional with gender non conforming people and trans people. Yeah i mean. They don't want anybody who's not like them but to your point earlier it's like that doesn't serve feminine like feminism only works if we lift up everybody it's about equality all around and understanding that within the spectrum of women womanhood there so many differences in people who have different needs and that there's room for all of it and just because different people require different. Things doesn't mean that your goal over here is making this goal over here harder or worse it can all work together and it should ram. Yeah i kinda wanna know what that's like because obviously as women we have to deal with being treated as women in society and we deal with these kind of things all the time like in the workplace or being centralized or being catcalled or being seen as objects all of that but you working in women's media specifically you had to confront feminism. It feels like in a very overt way and non passive way every day. Oh yeah it was. I bet and it didn't make me a likable. Say yeah turns out for when you criticize status quo really pisses off the people who have been upholding it and in hindsight i also have so many regrets about not doing enough that things that keep me up at night or like the times that i should have tried harder to convince the people around me to you..

"Thanks to the hard work of a lot of people on the inside however none of those people myself included had any say in what it looks like internally so we were working really really hard to promote communist values that we believe dan but the people baba's weren't working to bring those values into our own workplace so yeah editorial teams. I think our cost. The industry remained wade and says young. We were underpaid. We were overworked. And it was like that was the model like you hire young editor as you work them until they burn out and then you replace them with someone younger. There's no sort of like in person as a person ever seen in as disposable and a religious made me feel like this is not my feminism. Like this is something else. This is a performance of feminism. This is an appropriation of feminism for individual success. This is wait. People trying to say that they're oppressed because they're women and it just started to feel really gross. Is that part of why you think feminism just always feels like it's kind of a dirty word like so many people don't want anything to do it on both sides of the spectrum right. You have conservative women who kind of bucket this notion of feminism but then you also have some really progressive women who are also like feminism is problematic and it's been problematic. I don't wanna part in it. You know it's interesting. I feel like feminism was cool for one year inactive that beyond say performed with the word feminist behind you and then it was like. Oh my god we can like this thing without feeling ashamed and then it was too much than it wasn't clinton more until i do think that there is an element of sexism to it like. I think that women have a hard time. Aligning themselves with other women for a million different reasons. Obviously less sarah with lesbians. I think this is like a straight woman phenomenon just to that. But i think i mean it's just so complicated because it's like it's both. It's like feminism does. Have a problematic history. It is complicated is imperfect way to approach so for justice. But it's not awful. It's not the worst thing. There are ways to interpret feminism. That are really great however because it's not cool anymore everybody's afraid of the word again and to me. That doesn't feel like progress right. Even we were afraid of the word. i'm like. Yeah if we call this. Feminism are people going to be really laid. We have to put a disclaimer up top. That like this is not a buzzkill episode crate. Unlike also that this is not like a turf conversation like kneeling me right now about the conversations around feminism is like yeah is like the rad fem thing if they want those words and if those words are like henceforth to mean those things unhappy to get rid of them and find new words you i mean i'm not that attached to the word feminist were radical. They can have. I don't want conversation. Instead of adding numerical waves we can just scrap it and find a new word. Might help honestly. I did recently.

I don't know but just know they can pay me this amount of money and you should because without that like especially you know everybody knows that women often like sell themselves short and we'll go and under because we always feel bad asking for the things that both we need and we want.

That was also a week. Rate is just spoiler alert to anyone starting out as a freelancer a great way to be taken advantage of. Yeah well that will get us into our topic for today. Which is feminism. And that's kind of a a lofty thing to be discussing but a lot of the different things in your book do kind of touch on that like pay and salary and we're all just trying to get equal footing and have Things be fair across all the different intersections of feminism. I want to know first about like how your perception of feminism has changed in the different chapters of your life because you had this major in feminist and queer studies wasn't or that was her concentration and then going to work in women's media and now that you're on the other side of that what's the evolution. They're trying to think of where to start. Basically going into women's media as someone with this feminist queer theory background. I always thought of myself as kind of like an infiltrator. The purpose of me being here is to take the system down from within. It's not for me to succeed in. Climb the ladder. It is to make the changes. I wanna make and then get out and i actually have met a lot of people who felt the same way like it. Turns out. there are a lot of people in women's media. Who are there to change. Which is i in quiet. Looks the way it does today. But i think in the process. I became really disillusioned with the concept of feminism. In general because i watched as the women around me were misinterpreting it on confusing it with success on an individual level versus success for the collective in a way that raised up the most marginalized identities boss. Thing and era was the twenty tons. Which when i was coming up in women's media so what started to happen in women's media as i was participating in it was the content began to get more diverse..

Our interview is going to be main stage as always and our advice at the end but everything else. Were moving over to patriarch for our patrons so that's patriot dot com slash dining out. And we're just doing these changes to make things a little bit more sustainable for us and so that we can bring more content for the patrons because that's who keeps the podcast a flow. Really were still going to be broadcasting on stereo three times a week more about that later so there are a lot of ways you can hear us but the results are getting no. Let's be honest. The episodes are getting longer and longer really long. And we've had a cut so much out of our interviews to make everything fit and we're like we can no longer fit all these parts and the interviews when we have these awesome at people on. We don't want to have to lose a lot of that conversation. So that melody and i can talk about like our diva cups or whatever on in our lives that week he interviews for our pandemic depression right right. It's still riveting content. I i recommend you go to patriots to get that in in the future. That's where we're going to give our movie reviews and all that.
NBA star Steph Curry on playing golf through the years
"Right stephane. Thanks so much for joining us. I want to start right away with background before. We came on start recording. You already give me bunch excuses about how you haven't been playing a lot so have feeling to know how this is going to go. But i i gotta know some back on. I think it is important. How you got into golf. How much you play grown-up all this started happening before we get into some of the events we've We've seen you play in no the The i've got all the disclaimers and qualifiers from our game got. Those one liners locked up. But i started plan back in By eight or nine my dad. He played six years in the nba. So it's kind of summertime. Hobby is normal kind of father son type of situation. You take me out drive a golf cart. He cut down a little putter. That i'd go hit with In that i started getting more and more Passionate about china learn how to play and by ten eleven playing full rounds them all play low high school golf for three years and then from there may have been bit by the bug ever since it is one of the things look forward during the most when. I'm outside of the court last similarities. To you know the the encore like ball competition what you experience in the in the league in how. I kind of transition that to china. Take everybody's money on the course so good. I was gonna say this from for later. But i want to understand what the gulf culture is like during the nba. Season right because you know guys season kind of your typically goes into june for you guys but you know releases into summer and you can play golf in the summer. How often are you playing during the season. Are you traveling with clubs. Do you need a certain time period on a road trip to be able to play on the road. Have the set course every city you go to. How's that work. All the above. I think the best way to explain it is I guess our team. We are in a little bit more freedom over the last five six seven years to be able to kind of even manipulate the schedule on road trips a little bit to bagan some golfing though so we'll probably play like twice a month during the season. Which is solid Mostly on the road coach. Kerr's amazing it. A go into a city will play. That night might have an early next morning but if we have an off day he'll give us a window to go play in the morning and then cash the plane to go to the next city and then we have the warrior golf team championship. Run a myself. Andrei igwe dollar klay thompson will play. We'd have some front office. Guys that will go out so we had to accrue whenever that wind opened up the group techs going. Hey time we plan where we're going so there's a. There's a golf culture for sure in. Our team is growing across the league. I think every year. I find like five ten guys that are either asking me about what club they should get or where they should get lessons. Or are asia coast cool which i'll bring in clubs on the plane type stuff so we get all those questions is by the by the year is pretty awesome to know. How much did you know that other people are enjoying the game. As much as i do because i think that was one thing especially for golf. Fans that stuck out about the last dance is how often jordan was like as soon as something was over a guy no no. We're going to go play golf. We're going to go play golf and be like a thing that is continually growing. I see andrea vall on twitter all the time. He's obviously you know a huge golf fan. But you know. I gotta be honest. I didn't really understand the depth of your game until you played in the ellie mae classic in two thousand seventeen. So what was you touched on high school golf but have you. Had you played in any golf tournaments since high school before you took on that challenge. Since high school tournament. We play the american century up. In lake tahoe. A play a maybe five or six summers out of out of the eight before i played nellie mae and that one is different experience. Because i think. If i'm on my game i should be like your top eight favorites a win even though haven't won it yet but when you get on alienate classic on the web dot com when it was a korn ferry now. I'm marie list. How far my game is from a professional that earns money is trying to carve out a career in this game. But i feel like i can hold my own so i had like this ghana irrational confidence in that respect but when i got not to the to the first day i i should say i did the practice round and all that really learning how they approach like the preparation for the week and a i'll put so much stress on like the practice rounds like trying to score and then i yo- you're gonna burn yourself out before that's thursday friday. That's not it. I learned that the first six holes. I was mad. I made a bogey or something like relax so it was. It was such a cool experience in five finals. Then play in front of nineteen thousand fans in crazy gentler russia's out in the court there is absolutely nothing to no way for me to really express how nervous i was on that i even had call him a name. I damn near blacked out on the on. The i just hoped i hit it got in the air it was. It was really kind of out of body experience so well. That's not your. It's not your sport sport. You go just go play. This is not your thing and you know you're doing it for a ton of eyeballs. Got to be that kind of feeling. One hundred percent and other thing that i learned which i don't think people appreciate washing these guys week after week after week is allies exhausted like mentally and physically Being in that mode for five hours straight like pre round during around post round. I get getting engulfed sheet. You know there's athletes out there but it's a different experience of staying locked in engaged in all the different ways that they approach kind of being on top of the game. It's is Is pretty awesome.

"Remote interviews for distant tires have become the norm. and. Individuals are rethinking their career paths in a landscape that's drastically different from anything they might have planned for we spoke with Deepali virus, a senior executive of the talent acquisition and management firm Korn. Ferry. As a global firm Korn ferry was as prepared as anyone for the impact that covid nineteen would ultimately have on a US they picked up on it really broadly from our from our Asia colleagues when we saw the affecting Europe particularly Italy. So we knew that wave is going to come in in due time here we almost think of ourselves as a sort of a leading indicator right as to what's happening in the market whenever we're never lagging because we'll. We'll know right away. From our clients if there's a slowdown, if there's a pause or anything like that in in sort of the world has talent as lockdowns increased globally and governments began recommending people to stay in their homes to curb the spread of the virus. The first major challenge was uncertainty. We had already started to see a lot of our clients hit toss on their hiring effort just because they weren't sure what was going to happen. But as signs indicated that we would be dealing with this for a long time industries quickly began to adapt freezing and waiting wouldn't be viable long term solution for anyone. So mobilizing and optimizing a remote workforce became unnecessary adaptation in this new normal. Some industries were able to make that transition more easily than others. So I would say a lot of the cutting edge financial services. Firms particularly hedge funds that are already very technically savvy platforms easily transitioned right when you when you think about some of the I guess. Used to being in front of a computer and those types of. Models and other sort of a basics that that some of these were reliant upon was a seamless transition. The deal affects change from the folks that were in any sort of sales or relationship management type of roles right it was different for them to transition however got up to speed quickly in terms of you know obviously, you know making every meeting. Disaffected the way businesses are now. About business travel, really need for show much business travel and I think that's that industry is going to change quite drastically opposed to Calvin to examine how these changes affect. US right here at CIBC we spoke with. The director of human resources for CIBC prevot wealth. In the beginning flexibility was key. So back in March Ye. Employers very slippy transition to where the the vast majority of our employees while working. From home, it's actually started telling people you know what's to happen take your laptop home because there's a chance we may at some point have to if they say, yes for work fully transitioning home. So that's what. Already, and he did end up eventually. Sending out dirty of our folks to work from home. Some of the things that we did to enforce that were of we have a business continuity group that sprang into action, and there was a daily hall for a period of time or we would have this continuity would have resources he would have key stakeholders in the business. Where we all? Came together in the daily update on WHO's dot connectivity issues who need. You know resources who needs to come in etc. we very quickly ramped up into being able to work from home in. March as the pandemic continued NCIPC was adapting day to day operations and important focus would be determining which few key positions where needed in person rap elastic months we had still had people that have come into the office regularly. Most of those people would be on the client server side and they needed to be in the office for things like wires, you know money wires putting Chaffetz transactions that just had. To done interested in office six months in and many companies including CIBC are beginning to determine how to bring back small groups of employees and where to reasonably cap those numbers with the safest practices in mind. Now, we're bringing back what will fall our wave one employees, and the goal was by the time we have our way zero and our wave one back in our goal is that we would be no greater than let's say like fifty percents of total employees the whole plan in place to make sure that we are both. Physically able and sort of environmentally able to bring people back they. So they're also looking at things like necessity of using public transportation to get back in the office at Cetera. Of those working or even interviewing from home what are the long term impacts on employees themselves? Younger generations are entering the workforce with stiff competition but how does this new environment changed the typical idea of a career path? People Vice Discusses how Korn Ferry Sees Generation see adapting and taking advantage I think that they're viewing this pandemic as A. An opportunity for extreme career mobility, the fish it's twofold the mobility in terms of internal mobility for for to see if they love where they work for them to really promote themselves and say look I can work from obviously anywhere. You've witnessed through through this pandemic and the things that I would like to do for the for the company right So I think that there they have had. Opportunity for you know internal mobility because they can't be mobile work from anywhere and still be seen as its active players. The other part of it is extra mobility sitting at home they're more easily available more easily available for other competitors to recruit them out of their current firms, and so the world kind of opens up for them as well. So you're going to see a lot of actuation. Especially, you know in this sort of boomer generation that they can switch jobs easily onboard easily work from anywhere. Of course, this creates new challenges for the existing workforce. As younger generations adapt in the formative years of their careers, established teams will need to make similar changes to longstanding practices or risk being left behind job of yesterday are not going to be the same job as tomorrow, and there's this whole generational calf of of where they have not been upskilled to where the data fluency and the data illiteracy used to be today So I could foresee a complete collapse killing of an entire generation of a workforce because their job looks different today and it will look. Different you know five years from now I think everybody is going to have to become extremely data literate and that's where the talent press release point to to come in. Right. We're going to see a complete shortage of those individual and and you know looking at countries like India and others that are really trying to churning out the size of challenge because they are. So you know math and engineering oriented going to be able to take advantage of that in the market. Here's amy boil again. I. Don't really know all the ramifications this might have for for certain people who have. Been in job for a long time and you know. You don't have a clear path where every eighteen to twenty four months kind of moving up into a different role or something like that. Everyone..

Travel to Oaxaca
"I'd like to welcome to the show Susan met Naski from Brooklyn, tropical E. dot com, and that's tropical with an I at the end but a put a link to that in the show notes Susan Welcome to the show. Thank you. Thank you so much for having and Susan. You're coming on the show to talk about one of my favorite places in Mexico. Of course, I haven't been every place Oaxaca. and. Why are you talking about Wocka? Well, it is also one of my favorite places. It's actually my favorite place because I now live here after I think my first trip was in two, thousand, fifteen and. I just kept coming back and back for months at a time, and then finally I had been traveling fulltime for awhile I'm a travel blogger and when I was just ready to settle down, this was the place that was at the very top of my list. Excellent. Well, and I understood after reaching out to Susan that she was a longtime listener, the show which is always fun to hear it is a big honor for me to be on this show when there was a time many years ago I wasn't able to really travel, and this was my constant source of inspiration. I cannot imagine a time not be able to travel except of course now but right. Excellent and why should someone go to Hakka? So I think that the thing about Oaxaca really. So special and is not often matched in other places is that it's so dynamic. There is such a depth and breadth of things to do and learn and taste and understand here. It's so easy to fill a week itinerary full of all these things and not just one type of thing but a huge variety of things. So there's incredible culture here. There's history. An Amazing Food and mess calcined beautiful nature artisan work. So there's really something for everyone and It's just such a dynamic place to learn over of everything excellent. What kind of Tannery or are you going to recommend for us where we're GONNA start so? Worked on this a lot of years there because as I say, there's so much to do and I actually hear over and over again that people come here they plan a long weekend trip and they pair it with Mexico City or the coast or other places in Mexico and. On their first or second day they're already planning a return trip because they realize immediately that there's just such a huge amount of things to do. It's such a beautiful place such a compelling place. So I've come up with a seven day itinerary that I think is really a nice balance of all these different aspects, the nature and the culture and history in the food and artisan work and I. think that's a great way to have your first trip to a Hakka to have a little bit of a balance of all the things and learn a little of everything and. WELL ROUNDED PERSPECTIVE OF OAXACA Going Day one. Well so I have this kind of divided by Oaxaca city and then day trips and I think that one way people go wrong is they don't necessarily know that the day trips and and the villages and the nature sites archaeological sites outside the city the number of things to do outside of the city is equal or more than within the city. So. I think that the best way to kind of approach your race to think of it more or less than a fifty fifty way that maybe you're going to be doing day trips about as many days as you will be just strictly inside the. So I I'd like to just kind of talk about stuff within the city and then later I can get into the day trips if that works for you works remain so. Has Been inhabited since eleven thousand BC. So it has an extremely long history a really in depth history, and that's part of why a lot of the places outside of the city are so important the pre Hispanic archaeological sites and villages that still hold to their traditions. But also the city itself is quite old and the modern day city started to be built in fifteen hundreds when the Spanish were here. So there's still lots of historical sites to see in the city that are important and also beautiful. One of the best places I think to start is south of the Mingo Church that is an ex convent that has now been converted to a church and a museum and a ethnical garden, and it's also just kind of a big meeting point in the city for tourists and for locals as well. It's great for people watch chain there's lots of street food outside. So it's a great place to start, and then the museum there is great. They have lots of great exhibits about the history and Culture Haka. Big. Museum. Not a big museum but. We're seeing and also is a great way to get a look inside at the architecture of this gorgeous ex convent and then the ethnic botanical garden that's on the grounds as well is really fantastic. It's required to take a guided tour. And I wouldn't say it's for everyone because if you it is to at least two hours and it's very in depth about plant life and history culture. And I love it and I think it's amazing. I'm taking up multiple times bill. Some of those plants are important to people because some of the local plants give us things like Miguel so. Exactly. So. But I definitely recommend it for most people. The thing I think is really special is they really go into the history of the most important plants and the cultural significance and you get to see things like the predecessor for Korn that was found here in the valley, and that is one of if not the most important ingredients in food items in all Mexico and a lot of the world, and so there's just a lot of amazing insights and things you can learn about plant life in this really biodiverse state if you're into that kind of thing.
My Garden Has Been Taken Over by Weed. Kill Them Now or in Spring?
"Oh. We also had a question at Fred at plan talk radio DOT COM from John, and he says due to reasons beyond my control. This this goes for a lot of us. This year my garden has been taken over by weeds and grasses, and he says, should I sprayed kill them before plowing under this fall? Well, I'm going to say it's probably best to do. So especially if he's let them into the flower head stage and seed stage. Now. It's not gonNA make a tremendous amount of difference. And it depends on a bit what. What the composition of the weeds a- If they're perennials. Then, I'd go ahead and do the spraying the by perennials. I mean plantain Buckthorn But Korn. Danta lines, clover, violets, those things that will come back on their own route. I would say it's best to get them killed and knock down however when you turn new ground. there is a range of seed content in that soil in the top at least eight inches. If not more, you're going to bring up some fresh seeds. You don't get rhythm all at one time. However, I guess ask to answering the question. If there if it's heavy and perennials, I would go ahead and get my just if it's just foxtail and crabgrass and well, I don't even know what else to say I don't think he would have to. But because the first frost or freeze here is GONNA kill those guys but the the the ones that I mentioned I are. Coming back there on on their own route, the dandelions the little puff balls at. Around in the Are Now plants of on new route they're anywhere from an inch and a half to three inches wide and they're just waiting to be ugly later this fall and or next spring. So I think to kill is probably going to be an advantage but just so he doesn't think he's going to have all clean soil to start over with in the spring some of that stuff's going to come back and come back but I think the the starting point would be to spray and kill and Most of the things that you would. will be needed to will need to go onto live growth be absorbed by the plant taken to the root root dies, and then the top ghost is more or less the essence of it, and therefore I would say get it done soon. A. Most. Is and so on the veggies have been more or less harvested and done. So I think soon here because we've got less than thirty days now for well approximately thirty days for for lawn grows grass growth and so on I think that's the best way to go.
A conversation with Golfer Joseph Bramlett
"To get that experience anyways, but it's. It's always funny to be. We. We kinda over this I. Forget if you mentioned this, but you were at the time I don't know if there's still the case, but you. The youngest qualifier for the AM ever at age fourteen I was yeah, it was Yeah, that was that was awesome, and that was kind of part of the reason. My Dad kind of pushed me towards amador golf after that point to try to play with guys that were bigger, better, stronger, smarter Um the end when. I was fourteen years old and I went through thirty six qualifier ironically I had just lost in the qualifier and a playoff for the US junior amateur three weeks before, and then I play the US. Amador qualifier and got myself in a playoff and was able to somehow. It a wedge into a five Verdy the playoff and make its Oakland hills for the US am and it was It was unbelievable. I mean I was fourteen. No idea what I was doing what it meant, but it was really really cool. Yeah, I was the youngest ever well. This is a question that I never know how to word I guess, but what I'm trying to get at, and I know there's there's been a lot of ups and downs from injuries in your career, but I always want to know from guys that have kind of lived in that bubble between you bouncing back between the Korn ferry tour. As to what how you view, what separates you from? The example I always go to his Kevin Kisner who is perennially on has his card very safely does does very well doesn't bomb it, but just has a very i. don't want to say normal game, but a more relatable game to a lot of people in your mind. What is what's the difference between you and Kevin Kisner? What are you have to do to get to his level of consistency? It's honestly it's interesting. You bring up Kevin Kisner, because kids actually had a period of time that he bounce back and forth from the PGA tour the Korn Ferry tour back. I think he went back to the Korn ferry twice very early in his career out of college and He had a tough time. He almost thought about giving up the game. I read one time, so kids has got to a point in his career where he's figured. Figured out what it takes to succeed for himself to succeed on the PGA tour I really think the difference between me and him is simply experience I've actually played against him quite a bit growing up. We face each other in the US. AM In two thousand four. When he was in college, I was sixteen, and he beat me on the first playoff hole and I mean. I've I've played quite a bit against him and he's a great player. He's you know. parentally keeps his car now he's. He's in a great place in his career, but he went through those growing pains as well I think for myself. My career kind of got put on hold for about five years, and so my learning curve got a little messed up in there, and I think that having gone through the Korn Ferry tour now and got my car back. I've learned a lot. Lot about what I need to do. well to succeed again week out and That's where a lot of conversations about putting with math has come up because that's one of the areas of my game that I can get more consistent and stronger at from a ball striking perspective. I think I'm in a pretty good place. wedge game has gotten much more consistent in the last year and a half and I think from a mental. Perspective I think there's something to be said for getting comfortable out here and and ceiling like you can compete with these guys, even when you're game is not sure. My rookie year when I played on the PGA tour, I thought every aspect of my game had to be firing perfectly for me to have a chance to succeed and I've had several events this year. That I've had pretty good finishes and look back on how I played. I'm like man. I really wasn't that sharp this week. but I. I'm starting to figure out kind of how to peace tournaments together again and I think that's. That's where kids has gotten, too. I mean he's a great ball striker and I certainly am not taking anything away from what he does. He's a great offer, but I think the he is so consistent at where he's at now because he's gotten through those growing pains, he's gotten to a point where he knows exactly what it takes for him to play well, and he does that and he kissed on worry about anything else
"korn" Discussed on Marketing Today with Alan Hart
"They need to be able to learn on the fly and apply new approaches, as things are constantly changing in so balancing the short term and long term there's art and science to marketing and having strong understanding of innovation and risk. Taking are significant. Will you mentioned a number of things from left and right brain marketer is if you will to the importance of communication and being able to communicate effectively both internally and externally or drive the extra communication. I'm just wondering if you think broader about trends in either the marketing function or best in class, CMO's assuming that those things would be carried forward by Korn ferry in their perspective on what makes a great Cmo, or how do you guys think about it? What what do you feel is more of a best in? In, Class CMO and I say that begrudgingly a little bit because his almost every CMO, the role is slightly different. A you know there's a little tweak. It seems like to each organization in how they treat the role. Yeah, we! We've done a lot of research on this new Korn. Ferry as a whole has close to seventy million assessments with over four billion data points on executives all across the globe, and then to take it one step further by function specific to marketing. We've actually identified the differentiating characteristics of. Of best-in-class modern digitally oriented marketing leaders, including their competencies, traits and drivers, because to your point right, what the market or looks in company, a or what success looks like could be buried different in what it is in company being so the competencies that are are the leadership skills that matter the most for success, the traits are the personality characteristics that exert a strong influence on behavior, and the drivers are the preferences, the values and motivations that influence a person's career aspirations, and so from the research that we've conducted best. Best in class. CMO's understand how to manage ambiguity. Engage in inspire others develop a strategic vision and drive results there adaptable, confident and curious, and they're resilient in the face of obstacles, and they can work collaboratively across an organization got it. is a very difficult role in you mentioned. It's one of the most volatile in the C. Suite and I think we see that with every report comes out about ten year. One of the things I was reading recently and doing some research around this myself is the the. Of. The CMO in the C. Suite and the loy has published a report in the last year. Essentially, one of the main takeaways was that CEOS tend to rate. CMO's pretty high in terms of their performance, versus how CMO's rate their own performance, and then if you look at other C. Suite peers like the COO's and the chief sales officers, they actually seem to rate only roughly on average CMO's. S on their performance than CMO's themselves. In one of the thing, takeaways was the CMO's have a little bit of a confidence issue. If you just compare the CEO Ratings which are higher to on the thing that struck me. was you know this need to not just manage up to the boss you will, but this managing across and given all the transformation enterprise change that most of the Simos. F- had on the show talk about. Frankly surprised so just one wanted to get your reactions. Like what? What do you think given that? Is there anything that emotional be doing differently or thinking about? This is a an interesting study, and it really does depend on the organization. Some CEOS truly understand the marketing function while others still believe that marketing is about putting a big billboard out in the middle of New York, city or Or just stat, fluffy stuff or something that's nice to have and so based on the conversations that we have with CEO's for the most part they generally do value marketing, and have at least some form of understanding, but they're really hungry for marketing leaders that are strategic business partners, and specifically individuals that are revenue drivers who can speak in business terms, not marketing lingo who can simplify? Simplify things for the organization and someone who they can lean on and know that they'll come through and so CEOS expectations remain very high for CMO's, which does likely contribute to the short tenure in volatility, and it is critical for any organization that has a Simao to be able to describe. What are the critical success factors for the CMO and so if you can define four to. To five success factors that's excellent. If not then it's likely the organization either does not understand marketing Baillieu, it and that that CMO seat will continue to be a constant revolving door and CMO's need to make sure that they really understand. What are those critical success factors because that can be the difference between success and failure in your current role, your next role in in your career. Good advice good advice, I mean one of the things I would love to get your thoughts on is. It's rare that I have executive recruiter places. CMO's the people that I talked to every day on this show, and I'd love you to demystify little bit. The executive search process as an outsider. Of course it. It seems like most CMO's that are placed had a very similar job somewhere else. There's this natural progression, and then you every once in a while see what I call. The shape shifter's example would be like a Jeff Jones who started off as a? A lead marketer a gap than when agency side then went to target a CMO president at Uber for very short period of time, and now C. H. and R. Block Cross Industry, really changing morphing the role that you served in another one that's still in the marketing role would be Marissa Thalberg. WHO started off at Estee Lauder then went to Taco Bell, so change industries, and then now is at Lowe's home. Improvement Store says still retail, but very very different than Taco Bell in a quick service restaurant so I don't know how you think about it, but. But I'd love for you to describe how search actually works. And how do you go about sourcing candidates? When do they start to hit your radar? You will air searches a very interesting business. Let's break this down a little bit further so at the start. For example, let's just say there's three or five firms who pitch to work on the assignment with company X., and then from there. If we have the opportunity to win the search, we kick off by taking a real deep dive with our clients, speaking with several different stakeholders to fully understand their business. Business, their culture, and how the CMO immoral fits into the organization, we are clients, partners in advisors, providing insights into how they should think about the marketing function what the role should look like Org design top team effectiveness in more, and so it does depend on the circumstances once we understand who and what the client is looking for. We can develop a detail jobs back as well as the targeted search strategy, including relevant industries in companies, and then identify potential candidates, both from a technical and cultural fit, and then we can start to contact potential candidates or Or sources, which is someone that we may know who can provide some ideas around the role in the opportunity, and then when we identify candidates that could be a potential fit. We do in depth interviews with each candidate. We have our Korn. Ferry assessment, which provides insights into candidates, competencies, traits drivers. We share this information with our clients throughout the.
"korn" Discussed on Marketing Today with Alan Hart
"Today on the show got Zach pecan. He's a principal with Korn ferry based in New York City. He specializes in senior level executive search for chief marketing, officers, chief growth officers and other sales and digital leaders. He's on the Steering Committee for korn-ferry's Global Marketing. Practice and a member of their global consumer sports practices on the show today we talk a little bit about demystifying the executive search function the types of characteristics or capabilities that they're looking for in the next generation of CMO's and also the differences that are required to make the transition from CMO to GM or CEO. So I hope you enjoy this conversation with Zach P. Con. Zach. Welcome to the show. It's great to be with Allen. Thanks for having me great to have you I thought we could start with how you found your way to executive search, and specifically how you came to focus on CMO's chief marketing officers chief customer growth officers. Yeah, it's A. It's an interesting journey about how I found my way into executive search during my senior year Boston University start to think about what what I wanted my first job to be and I spoke to. To a lot of family, friends, teachers mentors. Everyone provided a lot of helpful advice. In the one constant theme was to find something. You're passionate about and I love sports. I love media, entertainment, and I had traveled a lot over the last several years having been in Boston DC London Italy and Spain and I wanted to come home back to new. York so I got a job at the world's most famous arena madison. Square Garden in one. Year Business Development. Training Program Selling Knicks. Knicks Rangers in Liberty Tickets. I had no business background. I majored in political science, but I love sports entertainment in that first year as I look back, I learned a tremendous amount about business how to do research. Get on a phone. I made one hundred plus phone calls a day. Yes, they did track them and I learned how to understand different clients. You know large corporations, families, and most importantly about how to build trust and long-term relationships I worked at the garden for several. Several years and as I was meeting with many different business, leaders could get the meetings I could make deals, but the wheels were spinning, because as they spoke about finance balance sheets, HR marketing technology I knew that if I was going to be a better business leader, I needed to gain more knowledge in those spaces, and so I enrolled at Peru which has a great financial international reputation in the city in their executive MBA program I worked fulltime garden and went to school. It was a crazy roller coaster ride and at the end of my studies I was thinking about what I wanted to do next someone said. Have you ever considered search I said what's that? I did my research I saw a lot of parallels intellectually curious like solving problems making an impact, and so I got the opportunity to join a boutique search firm. Firm I learned the business from the ground up, and then I joined Korn. Ferry where I am today, which is a global organizational consulting firm, we help our clients to select and hire the best talent execute their strategy and advise them on the best ways to compensate develop and motivate their people, and with my background coming from the garden, originally the consumer. Consumer Marketing and sports practices were natural fit from an experienced impassioned perspective in today I advise and partner with clients looking for chief marketing officers growth officers, commercial officers across all different industries. Awesome will I know you talk to former in currency mos? Teeth customer in growth officers every week at I'm curious I'm sure listeners are as well what you're hearing about the. The challenges and opportunities that they see ahead. It's a strange time right now that we're in. Yes, these are strange times, but I do have the opportunity every day to speak with marketing leaders all across the globe, and it's fascinating. We recently held or first inaugural CMO's CEO Realm table with senior marketing leaders across various different industries and all the CMO's talked. Talked about how they're facing similar challenges at this time, and some of those challenges and opportunities include figuring out ways to continue engage with their customers, focusing on their bran performance, marketing customer, experience, revising their investment, models and digital transformation was critical, before is even of more importance now most effective CMO's. We see no surprise. Right have a mix of what we call. Call less rain and right brain, so they're highly analytical and creative. At the same time given the situation that we're in now. Financial Management has become even more critical metrics and brand building as well, and CMO's are very focused on how to develop relationships with their customers that build value produce innovative, creative, and use data driven insights to demonstrate a return on. On Investment CMO's. It's important to understand that they're part of the C. Suite and management team, and so they shouldn't just behave like a marketer, but instead more like a general manager and CMO's are expected to creatively apply insights to business challenges validate their decisions with data create seamless customer experiences and lead efforts to put the customer at the center of the. The organization and CMO's as most your listeners, probably very well aware are considered the most volatile C. Suite function, and while many have gained a seat at the table that continues to be an issue as well and so marketers need to really continuously be aware of the importance of demonstrating the value that they can provide to their businesses on a consistent basis. Do you feel like the role is changing for good in any in any respects related to cove it, or do you feel like? Maybe this is a little bit of a temporary issue that we have and that really the role itself is pre steady, and not being not being changed for good. I guess related to the pandemic that we're going through. Kind of an odd question to apologize for that. Yeah, all good to see him role I think was evolving before Covid, and will continue to evolve in the long term. The Best CMO's understand the importance of better organizational alignment. That's more important than ever as the saying goes, it takes a village, and so the relationship between the CEO and the CMO is so important now CEOS WanNa see hard data on how marketing investments translate into revenue growth, especially at times like now and the most successful. CMO's can manage not only up and down, but also sideways about other. Leaders Building Trust together. The marketing environment is in a constant flux cove it or not Kobe the current crisis, though is definitely lead to the acceleration of digital transformation across organizations and marketers need to understand how to flex marketing models, and where to make their marketing investments most effectively, and they also need to be strong communicators, especially in times of uncertainty, purpose and relevancy are more important as than ever using purpose to create deeper connections with consumers is very important. This can result. Result in higher market share growing faster than your competitors and achieving higher employing customer satisfaction scores, and also CMO's especially in times like this should look to the more agile in their marketing approach, so they can identify high value projects, and.
Coronavirus and golf: How the professional tours are affected
"Let me ask you this about the tour and like all this stuff is going because you talked about the guys being on the golf course and. I really don't blame these news. We try to play golf because if they look if I stay away from people doing nothing else then I might as well get at here but like how do you think the tour is going to be affected by all of this there are affected a bunch of one? They still haven't even postponed or canceled events. That scheduled may twenty first the ink at colonial. And you know one of the events that that they're talking about trying to move since they moved. Somebody majors the US Open now where it got moved. Its date is open. So Jack Nicklaus tournament the memorial wants to move out of its slot into where the US Open was but it's still scheduled to go on in. That's the last week of. May which doesn't seem possible to that's going to happen. They hope and help or like the idea that the US Open is saying. Now we're not going to be here. Is somebody else's like that all right? Yeah or tournament like the open championship which isn't scheduled till July is like we out all next year in. May there like an eighty news like Nah. And that's the thing Bo you know man. I'm I'm optimistic. I try to see the silver lining. I tried to look at the good in everything but realistically to think we're going to be playing in June is just it. I don't see it happening. I just don't see us being ready to play golf in six weeks when there are still places that are on complete lockdown. I don't understand how they think that they're going to pull this off now even in my opinion first week of August which is when the PGA championship is supposed to happen. Even that seems to me as a more hopeful than realistic thing. Not only because we don't know where we be as a country as far as where this pandemic virus is by then. We have no idea whether it is going to be a phase two or phase three and the fact that the PGA championship is still scheduled to be held in San Francisco. Yes I if xactly Gulf has never been the first to do anything so to think that golf would be the first sport to come back. Golf is a sport that is more image conscious than the NFL. That I know that sounds crazy but think about this. You are not going to hear the golf as Elliot Nothing. Have you ever heard of a Golfer have you heard of a Golfer getting a DUI other than Tiger Woods? 'cause it was tiger so he's bigger than just the Gulf News but have you ever heard of a PGA tour pro given the Dui. Like you think it ain't happened right exe- so the thought of Gov being the Guinea pig like man. We'll bring all our guys back. Because you know golf will be the easiest thing for social distancing. Yes inside the ropes. It's easy for social distancing Hauer player's GonNa get tournament how litter power. They literally getting from the airplane to hotel. Where we're staying. Where are they going to empty? Who who changing the sheets right and then when you get to the gut like getting a rental car you can rent a car from somebody. I'll be working rental counter and then when you get to the golf course you just pulling out in the Congo and straight to the driving rains. You're going into the locker room who's WHO's opening locker room door. Who's working in you? Go to the bathroom cleaning up. Who changed sort of paper or you won't eat. Who's WHO's GonNa Food? Who's bring the food who stole in the trash out like? Who's doing the dishes like those? And that's not you ain't got to the courts yet now. You get course okay. We're GONNA put this on TV. Well who's filming? You've got to have a camera do. Okay Yeah we got a camera guy but the camera guys not the producer. Oh Yeah. Where's the camera picture on bow to? We need court to go to the trump who's trump who drove the trump who's producer who's directed where those people at Lake everything that goes into a production of a golf broadcast. Ken Be even bigger than Football Basketball Baseball and hockey. Because at least those venues are all a one static place so you could put cameras up in a stadium and field ain't GonNa Change. It doesn't work like that with golf when one week. The golf course looks like this in the next week is completely different. Everything gotta move is a traveling circus so to think that golf would be the one to go. Hey we'll come out. I will do a I. The Gulf was the second to last the shut it down. It was golfing NASCAR so in the long run when Gov comes back there I think of is gonNA come back without fans like I think every other sport will at first and I think golf will do okay in the long run. But I think we're GonNa wait longer than what we think for golf to come back. But and here's my silver lining. This is also where I love. What the Masters did where the Masters said we're coming back in November. The masters is the last thing on the schedule. Movember Ninety two fifteen and again talk about buffer nate. Just out not only did they come back. And we're GONNA do this in November. They also have already said. If you've got a ticket Komo come on in you know other sport has been no other waning. Tried to say only Augusta will be like not only. Are we putting the masses on? We're letting the Patriots into but we won't make that Egg Salad. We're going to make those divisional tea. Sandwiches come gifts on and I think November. Not only is realistic. But I love that. The masters is at least for me. The biggest beacon at the end of this dark tunnel. I tell you this though. Y'All come back I ain't GonNa meet you there right like they say like they just go be somebody out there. That's like now I'm good is somebody's wife. That's like yo you ain't going out on this trip like his eight nine. This ain't the Olympics though. That's what's funny. I remember when Owen down for the Olympics. Zeka you know guys were like I know plenty of dudes whose girlfriends and wives would like if you go. Don't come on you know. He you know he might put us in. The spot and jazz were like. I'm not even going to go I. I'm any worth you know. I'M I won't be happy home really but the masters though let's say right now there's plenty of dudes if that came down at the masters they are going to be like. Yo suitcases right over. She she she she. She want me to call Uber. Or because I'm going to the mass you don't WanNa go. You Ain't gotta go but one of us is going well. That tate is last thing I would ask you because I just thought of this while we were here. Are these golfers paying their caddies out like how I still pay my housekeeper? Even though she's not keeping the House I got the same thing Nancy so most golfers yes are trying to take care of their caddies in some way or form. We have to remember how cat is get paid. Caddies get a weekly paycheck and then you get a percentage of what the Golfer wins. But if the government's not winning anything where it becomes difficult is for. We all know the big super rich dude by all the big name guys like rory no Tiger Dustin Johnson of Brooks Kapka you name it Jordan Speed Rickie Fowler just Thomas Jon Rahm like those dudes of yes. They're going to be taken care of their dude with the guys who have a tough time on rookies. So the guys who came from the korn-ferry tour or the guys that this is only their second or third year on the PGA tour and they made them millions like those they could be struggling a little bit to one of the guys who I'm friends with a WHO's academy and doesn't caddy for a big named guys told me that his guy is sending them a little bit just a little bit every week just to help everybody still got bills and whatnot. So I'm sure that there are some guys that are not in a position to do that so there are probably some caddies that are hurt. But that's the world we live in right now so everybody's anxious to kind of get back to work pay
Annual Performance Appraisals
"Welcome to hack ear leadership. I'm Chris and this is talent Tuesday. This short weekly segment is dedicated to all things talent related for this Tuesday episode. Talk about performance appraisals. Some people in workforce don't seem to need any one on one time with their leader in order to benchmark progress and get feedback other seem to want to constantly multiple times a week or even daily neither is wrong and every employee should feel like they're on the same page with their leader when it comes to the frequency of these interactions but no matter what interval seems to fit your needs virtually all of us go through an annual performance appraisal very few companies. Don't have some sort of formal documented process for measuring performance sometimes appraisals or even tied to an annual increase in salary a practice. I don't love but that's a topic for another day. It seems however that as time goes on the annual performance appraisal starting to matter much less in a recent study by Korn ferry almost half of all professional said their annual appraisals had literally zero impact on their performance and before. You Scoff at that number. Think about why. That was your gut reaction. If an annual performance appraisal was the catalyst for bringing about change in the way you do your work that would be you either had never heard the feedback prior to the annual review whether you would hurt it but didn't really take the feedback seriously until then and neither of those is a testament to effective leadership Lorenzo. I have said repeatedly on hacking your leadership that there shouldn't be a single thing said to an employee during a formal review. They haven't already heard in the course of their normal feedback. Rhythm nothing after all the word review tells you exactly what this process should be a review of things already discussed? We've also talked extensively about how a good performance review our annual appraisal can be done on the back of a Napkin if the daily work of leadership is already being done and if he employing leader have a solid relationship so it's no surprise. Companies are more and more starting to dial back. The continued effort that goes into refining the annual appraisal process and instead focusing more on real time feedback that really needs to be aggregated. And this is great if you get a lotta organically cultivating relationships with people. And if the formal process of annual appraisals daunting task on your to do list but if you look forward to the time you spend in filling out those annual forms and pulling together the day that you needed to get it done and if the daily sometimes tedious process of relating to your employees on a personal level is the part that puts the anxiety in your stomach. Then you have your work cut out for you. This trend will only continue in this direction. Employees Are all but demanding coaching and feedback on a rhythm that is more often than annualized or quarterly. They're doing this because they want to get better both employees and his people. They look at every day at work as an opportunity to make themselves more marketable which means every day. They don't learn something new as a missed opportunity in their minds. So if your leader a people get really good at turning. This process of feedback and coaching into the data needed to write your employees annual appraisals. Because while we're still pretty far from the day we're annual appraisals don't exist. We've already arrived at a place where this process mere formality. Thanks for listening and have a great
Lightning 3 special team goals, end 4-game skid, top Flames
"The Tampa Bay Lightning held on to snap their four game losing streak defeating the Calgary flames for three Saturday afternoon in Tampa Tampa Bay whose power play struggled of late got their first two goals of the game on the man advantage Tyler Johnson and Ondrej Palat with the tallies the game winner came off the stick of Alex killorn less than a minute after Calgary had scored two straight when they scored two goals you must think like maybe take a time out or something here just doesn't get any worse than this but I think scoring that goal can turn things back around the right way Yanni Gourde scored short handed for the lightning then three goals came in under two minutes and remind Giovanni analyze Lindholm brought Calgary within one before Korn's goal put Tampa Bay up for good Sean Monahan rounded out the scoring for the flames what's worse again Tampa
Talent Tuesday: Actually developing your employees.
"Welcome to hacking your leadership. I'm Chris and this is talent Tuesday. This short weekly segment is dedicated to all things talent related for this talent Tuesday episode. Talk about the actual skill of developing talent managers as a group are worse at developing their employees than they are at virtually anything else. They do a few years ago. Robert Hiking our leadership development researcher with Korn Ferry found that the ability to grow talent was ranked sixty seventh out of sixty seven different management competencies. And there are many reasons for this first and this is something that runs on. I often mentioned hacking your leadership. Many people currently leadership roles got there because they were good at their previous role and not because they showed any leadership skills so makes perfect. Sense that the competencies uniquely assigned to leaders of the ones with which these leaders struggle second developing people's messy. It's often quantifiable. And it certainly isn't something that can be accomplished by. Moving down a checklist and getting each thing done. Oftentimes validation of whether or not a leader has succeeded. Developing their people comes long after the reporting relationship is over in these situations. The docilely connected looking backward one thing. People Development should be at the top of the list when it comes to importance for leaders of people studies confirming that career development is the single most powerful to a leader has to lift employee engagement raise productivity and improve results so ubiquitous and yet it seems to be the first thing that gets put on. Holden leaders inevitably run at a time. I once heard from a colleague. I respect don't tell me what's important to you right on how much time you spend on each thing you do all week and I'll tell you what's important to you. The implication is clear leaders. Who Don't have the time to develop. Their people are masking the real issue. They don't see the value in it or they have no idea how to do it and they're scared of failing. If you're a leader of people what I'm saying to you right now is resonating their Fusi things you can do to start the ball rolling. Even if you aren't very good doing this I remind yourself over and over if necessary. That developing person in their career is a slow tedious process. You don't get to do one thing or even ten things and then check off the box and moving to other employees second. Remember the developing person and helping them move. Their career forward is done with dozens of small events. That individually might not seem like much but the collectively become a very powerful force much like Baseball Games are won by doubles and triples rather than Grand Slams. Prepare person for the next step in their careers. Done one conversation at a time third. No the one conversation at a time model only works if the conversations are productive. Some won't talk about business at all after all your employees need to know you care about them outside of just what they can do for the business but most of your time is be filled with actionable either through recognizing when the employees holding themselves accountable for their own development through calling out the positive steps that have been taken so far so the employees aware that you are watching an you're paying attention or they're putting together a specific learning training plan. That will help. The employee accomplish the next steps so the next time you find yourself. Failing one of your top performing employees but not taking an active part in their development. Remind yourself that Rome wasn't built midday. Stop beating yourself up over it. And instead make a concerted effort to be purposeful with every interaction. Going forward one day. You realize you're getting results from it. I hope you enjoy this talent. Tuesday thanks for listening and have a great
The Long Road Back to the PGA Tour, with Joseph Bramlett
"People are looking for someone to root for this week? Joseph Bramlett has to be your guy. Yeah thirty one years old. He was the youngest ever. Got To qualify for the US. Am hand you know. He basically took like seven years away from the top levels of the game. I mean as someone who's back as someone who tried to play Pro Golfer a couple years and then you know so the writing on the wall and quit. Yeah I have major admiration for someone that saw the top of the tower and then went to the deepest dungeon. And now has yeah. He's out of it. He had his back. He's LEGIT PGA Tour Player. Top twenty last week at pebble so he was a great guy to talk to him. Yeah we talked to him about twenty minutes. We talked to Rafael. Who is the owner of Genesis for another fifteen or twenty minutes and he told us basically everything that their brain is doing here this week? Why they love this event while they love. La Gulf stay tuned for that a little bit later for now here is Joseph Bramlett are we are here in What is now the Genesis invitatinal press conference center with? Joseph Bramlett the Charlie Sifford exemption. This week now your first time as the Charlie Sifford exemption but a lot has changed internalize since two thousand eleven. When you were in that position the first time you just came off the top twentieth pebble. How are you feeling about the game right now? I feel good. Yeah I feel really good. My coach and I did a lot of hard work in the off season Felt like I was showing some good signs. The first couple events this season and then To have a nice respectable finish last week was a good stuff for people. That don't know your back story like let's just rip through. His backstory is taking taking shots at me. A rude you were a phenom growing up. Tell us just a little bit about where you're from. You know how you got here. Wow okay well story here we go. Yeah I grew up. In San Jose California was born in Stanford Hospital grew up playing junior golf in San Jose Bay area. Yeah when I was fourteen I was the youngest to compete in the US amador. That was a big big accomplishment for me at the time and were teen years old. Yeah it was very young. Yeah it was really cool. I I was got a little bit of media coverage and a lot of attention from college coaches so made the recruiting process. Really easy for me and Yeah from there. I played a lot of amador. Golf in northern California I went to school at Stanford Was able to graduate in two thousand ten and At the end of the year I went through school and was able to get out here in two thousand eleven straight out of college which was amazing steal. It was a big company. People can pull that off no not at all and it was. It was incredible is amazing experience. I would say that I was probably a little bit unprepared for some of the things that came along with playing professional golf. What just how frequently. We Compete Growing up I would play at tournament for three days and then I take two or three weeks off prepping for the next tournament and out here. If you miss a cut and then you've got like five days to get ready for the next one and you my my rookie year. I played nine events in a row and I played eleven out of twelve weeks straight. So I'd never done anything like that big life. Yeah it was. It was just a huge life shock. I mean not only was I competing often but I also didn't go home for like two or three months and I'd never done that before so it was just. It was a big growing experience. That lines up with a lot of what to rookies have told me in the past and are held. Varner said something like that just like your first year is such a learning curve which kind of you know sometimes guys like Matt Wolf or more cowardly like snap their finger and it happens and they get it but that it's much more a rarity than what is the norm now. Absolutely my hat off to them. I mean they`ve. They've played incredible right out of college. Which I mean shows a lot about what they can do But it's it's hard to do that and yeah I I took the the learning curve. Route niners fan absolutely. Oh yeah outsider. Yet it was. It was definitely a tough pill to swallow Starting out the year I was really pumped. I thought we might make the playoffs. I was really pumped. I was like we might be in contention again and then eight games in house like we're good and then Yeah I knew going against the chiefs in the super bowl is going to be hard because they're so dangerous is Jimmy G. The truth for you is he the one Jimmy. Jeez my guy can't roll with. Okay I like it. Yeah I mean from a Franchise Tag Joe Montana and Steve. Young I mean. We have very high expectations quarterback no doubt when Jimmy came to the niners. The excitement around the niners went through the roof for him when he didn't have anything. I'm so he is helped the culture shift in San Francisco and for those reasons alone. I'm riding with as a packers fan. The niners warped our ask twice this year so down there better scary. So good football interlude. They're kind of like that. She was stick with just the football. Let's talk about Shanahan. Nice Forty five minutes twenty eleven. Yeah well you played well. You didn't quite keep your car right. You were just a few thousand dollars. Away thousand-year status. I mean how do you? How do you process being so close? You know being on the grind for that whole year and then just missing out on keeping your card It was tough. It was it was a tough experience. So two thousand eleven was my rookie year out here on the PGA tour and That year actually got my head kicked in pretty good. I didn't I didn't come quite that close to keeping my car. I think I've finished around one ninety five on the money list but the next year was my first year on the what is now the Korn ferry tour and so I think that's what you're referencing that year I was inside the top twenty five all year and thought I was going to get my PGA tour card back. I was really excited because now I had this experience with me looking forward to getting back and I came up short in our last tournament. The tour championship one shot short and I was I was devastated Kinda. Wear you stood where you needed to finish. Never know for sure because I think it was the tour championship there. Sixty guys plan. I was somewhere around twenty fifth and so there are a lot of guys behind me that we're playing well and you never know where it's going to shake out so. I knew I needed to get out of it as I could. Yeah I know that like there's little decisions you make on the golf course. Have these really big effects on the rest of your life. Yeah and that's what you train for as a kid to block all that stuff out just kind of stay. Stay PRESENT. Stay in the moment. I think I've put myself in that situation so many times. That much more prepared for. I've I've learned to do it. But it's it's really stressful. And Yeah so tell me about life since then because now you're actually thriving on the PGA tour but what happened between two thousand twelve and now. What was your road back like? Yeah so halfway. Through the two thousand thirteen season Was warming up for the Utah Championship. And I swing with a LOB wedge. I just got this searing pain throughout my whole body. I felt like every nerve in my body was set on fire and I just got stuck. I couldn't move. I had no idea what it was. I hadn't had anything like that happened before so I tried to get some treatment. You know one thing led to another. I had to withdraw from the tournament. The next day couldn't play and Yeah I spent the next six weeks at home laying on the floor Cross of visceral description by every never my body felt like it was on fire. Yeah with something. I've never experienced before. And anyone with back pain probably has a reference to what I'm talking to But it's it's just such a humbling experience because I went from being a professional athlete. Who Does everything with my body to laying on the floor and you know asking you know loved ones if they can bring me some food or like not brushing my teeth for days at a time because I just can't bend over to do it So it's just it's it's a very very humbling experience. GotTa be one of those things that you and I. We can listen to you. Describe it. We can't understand it until happens to you. Like no one can really understand back dame until they have back pain at least that's my understanding of it. Yeah I I'd say that's fair. I certainly had no idea what I was getting into at the time. Either and There's a lot of people deal with it though. That's the scary thing is that like it's the back dictates everything that moves in your body so if that computer has a problem nothing else functions and yeah. I mean it was from there. I got a lot of imaging and a lot of memories taken and we started to realize that I had an annual charity. My four zero five disc and that takes eighteen months to heal on average. So that wasn't fun. News to hear from the doctor goes through your brain when he says eighteen months. Until you gotta be kidding me. Eighteen months what takes eighteen months like. Yeah I'm like Senate guys to the moon and eighteen months like how does that even but It just shows you how delicate and fragile. The human body is and You know from that point I just started trying to figure out any routes I could take to speed up the process. I saw fifteen different spine surgeons and the first fourteen told me. I wasn't a candidate for surgery. All they could do implement rods and my back and that would end my career and then the last guy last guy was like yeah. I mean I can open you up and take a look. Were you looking for that information from? Are you looking for someone that would agree to surgery or I I was? I I knew surgery was not the best long-term solution but I started getting impatient and I was wanting someone to fix my problem And about the guy is the host this week the same exact things multiple surgery so I imagine yeah and as an athlete like we do things with our bodies and we wanna you know be strong and get back out there and get to work and Yeah I didn't. I couldn't do that so I actually was considering the last guy pretty good. And it's where my girlfriend's stepped in and she's like you're not GonNa do this like not having an experiment. Doctors exploratory back surgeries. She's like go. See this guy that I know. He's a physical therapist and so yes she got me. In touch. With my current physical therapist cody Fowler and Yeah from there. We started piecing together. How my body moved and kind of get me back on on track.
Ego vs. EQ
"Welcome. Jansher Connie they do. I hope everyone's doing well today. A topic at as she mentioned is ego versus each hugh and I'll give you some tips and sidelines on how to use a little more emotional intelligence particularly when it comes to leadership and many of you may have had this experience. I've had which says very often when an employee is struggling. It isn't about what they know or don't know we have folks that are very savvy very knowledgeable but very often times when they get into trouble it's because of how they're managing their relationships there. Taylor having conflicts with coworkers their self awareness seems to be off a H. I have heard time here in feedback so so this sort of behavioral science of emotional intelligence has become a real focal point or a lot of organizations who are wanting folks that can can manage relationships eat relate well to what they know and to define us. Let me just I give you the quick definition here emotional intelligence so in Q. is sort of nickname and it's made up of three broad components on three skills if you will the the first line is your ability to recognize yourself so it's knowing kind of who you are. It's knowing your strengths but also knowing your weaknesses. It's recognizing what your instincts are telling you in the moment or maybe your behavioral patterns are in certain situations so it's sort of recognizing recognizing the impact. Your behavior is having people around you. The second piece is reading others so it's social awareness. It's picking up on the nonverbal signals that people send you and really reading your audience well and then lastly. It's your ability to respond appropriately so instead of taking either. A one size fits all approach or sort of you know. I'm going to handle you to say my handle using my hand. Regardless of the audience says that is generally lower emotional intelligence mindfully mindfully choosing behavioral response based on what you're doing or who you're with is a higher level of each year so it's recognized read respond. Emotional intelligence is a competency. It was actually identified in Kinda coined in the nineteen eighties. It's a very young behavioral zero science from that standpoint actually it was called emotional quotient at the beginning which is why kio some referred to e Hugh versus. Iq You which might be street smarts versus book smarts but it was actually identified as a form of intelligence in the nineteen nineties and so there's been a lot of academic work done that has documented the benefits of this behavioral science for all of us so let me tell you a little bit about the skill set because the competency competency is recognized reverse but I have to have some skills that allow me to do that. There are several here are just a couple of them self awareness as I mentioned mansion right so this is that ability to know yourself know your strengths. Your weaknesses not even your personality tight or your communication style doc if you've never taken an assessment on either of those I recommend that you do that. I think that's really valuable information to have it's also of course self control manager a yourself not saying we're doing inappropriate things. Adaptability so openness to change and on ability to use is feedback in with it and another one is optimism which is a belief system that positive change is possible in yourself in in others. There are more but these are pretty foundational and if you WanNa work on your e Hugh these recent rate skills to focus Assan unlike cue which is set each hugh learnable and that's the other reason why this is such a powerful concept for us as leaders in employees Louise because we can do something about us. Weakening crease are each hugh over time and see very positive results now some people ask me if you can take an IQ tests. Can you take each you test in the answer's. Yes you can measure national intelligence. There are zebra tools that we use in recommend one is called the issue. I two point now this is published by a company called multi health systems or NHS chess and working with a certified provider knee would send you a late you answer one hundred thirty three questions and that will generate Raider report for you. We give you a total score and that would also give you scores if teens skills I shared with you that there are total of fifteen measured on this tool it Consta- chew versions the leadership version for those that haven't boys reporting to them and workplace report version which is for individual. Oh contributors the data's the same and the record linked business saints about twenty two pages but it's great resource information in a good way to kind of baseline where your issue is now in the re-test over time to see you progress another tool that we use that we recommend is called the Sti st I offered through Korn Ferry and this is what they call a three sixty report so this is a multi breed. I go online online in answer the questions but then I also send it to people in my circle so I might send it to boss peers employees that worked worked for me and then everyone has a chance to answer the questions and comments at the end so this is a pretty powerful report. It's not probably probably for the famous part having done this myself. It's it can't be a little intimidating because you're seeing how you see yourself heard everyone else but it's a great measure of sort bat social self awareness. How aligned is how I see myself in a way I wanna be being perceived by others around me. So this is separate tool. We like to use for coaching again to baseline where someone is coming from and really help narrow down the areas to focus on as far as coaching development us so why is each you important. I mentioned there's been research done and if we look at it in particular color in the context of Leadership Wallace is so important one at the statistics that the Harvard Business Review published five fortune five five hundred CEOS fail in the first eighteen months on the job as you can guess the CEO for five hundred is pretty big job and and it can be quite challenging the executive does not demonstrate self awareness self control and empathy according to the the small business administration two-thirds of businesses fail in the first ten years and a lot of those reasons although we certainly have market conditions or other factors contributes a lot of times I've seen in my almost thirty years now doing some Kinda coaching and development role is the the founder has a very hard time on growing out of that initial startup phase and building bigger business so we'll talk a little a little bit about what happens in a minute and I've got another study. I thought was interesting nut nearly a hundred percent of CEO's that survey said they would like an executive coach each but yet sixty six percent. Don't go get run so a lot of these executives are kind of on their own in a way trade. You're out the best way to behave and try to manage running your companies at the same time. You're managing themselves. So this is the common growing we need. We also have research that shows that employees each you actually make more money a lot love people in when they hear about these they are these your soft skills or these are nice to have skills but actually these do have a very direct impact on somebody's ability to either South Horn. If you're in a sales role as you can guess if I can recognize reading respond more. They'll do a better job probably closing business. If I'm in a leadership role I usually have employees that are engaged with lower turnover which results typically in higher profit margin and if I'm on a bonus plan of any kind that number goes up and might also be recognized more frequently and get promoted more often so there's a lot of reasons why this actually impacts individual earning potential and then there's another great article this recall what makes a leader and this is not a particularly emotional intelligence in business and the quote from the article on the research look into companies and gave everybody assessments and they pulled out. IQ scores technical skills assessments and emotional intelligence scores I and when he compared the ratio of those three things as far as how they type act excellent performance emotional intelligence was twice as important as the other their jobs now as you get to the executive level it becomes a key differentiator because as you can probably imagine as people growing careers on and you get up to a senior executive level a lot of executives even out meaning. They might have a similar education background. They might have the same years of experience career in the industry but what starts to release separate good leaders from matters is their ability to work through others their ability to motivate the engaged the workforce so that's why that hugh you know your technical skills. You're not doing the technical work that way. You need to get that done through others and those require emotional intelligence do it better now. I also read on this research right in. I had also heard that middle middle managers actually in a typical organization have the highest emotional intelligence so thinking about that a middle manager. Sir Has the highest level and I guess if you imagine the rollout middle manager right they're executing on initiatives today's from above they're having to work through the team below They're in sort of a squeeze zone rate. They're in a very what is the feedback pitch environment so I can see how that really helped develop the ability to recognize reader response however when we look at a talk on average the person in the company with the lowest each year is the executive suite with CEO CFO CIO see out now that didn't make a lot of sense to me when I first heard it because I thought will hack a lot of CEO's knows a lot of companies promote from within so if they were middle manager at some point in your career like where did they eat here again. How did it disappear by the time they got promoted to the talks talks and as I started to use my own clients to assess what might be going on here. This was sort of the beginning of this book concept because I was trying to understand. Why is it harder to me. He emotional intelligence at the highest levels of leadership and I started to recognize certain patterns that were happening and nats were these eight ego tracks sorta keen about now. I titled IT E- Gutter versus each year and I want to sort of explain what I love this picture by the way so I don't really refer to ego as arrogance or what he might take ads the self-centered leader. That's it's all about them. What I find happens is we have managers Myers working with a leader time on he was challenged winched. I'll say that his team was struggling with him. I said to him hey if I were to interview your team and ask them to describe arrived your management style to need what would they said and he said Oh. This is really easy on you know I. He had taken one of the suggest profiles from the communication styles in somebody's like I am a High D. that means. I'm very direct that means I. I kinda say what I eat but you know the bottom line is worked to do work. I'm not here to make friends. you know. I love friends outside of work. I don't need more friends organized. Tell how might you know all the time.
