"mobley" Discussed on The NBA Show
"Has really mobile hips number one and he can react to ball handlers in a way that's really impressive. I sent you a clip of him from their game against Charlotte where miles bridges and you can go on like these video sites and I'll try to post a clip of him like elite ball handlers attacking him. Like, in open space on an island like Devin Booker, Damian Lillard, miles bridges was trying to attack him downhill and you could just see like miles is a super athlete. And Evan was like reacting and turning in real time really quickly and not getting blown by, which is really impressive for a guy his size. I think he just has this ability to play conservatively and not get out of position. You know what I mean? You'll see some of these really athletic guys just jump to the moon and get out of position, like nerlens, Mitchell Robinson. He's very advanced on that front. Yeah, it's funny you mentioned that talking about comparing an athletically. And I always look at it like a lot of young guys. They come in the league and they can get to like a hundred, but sometimes it's like they're going fast, but they don't know where they're going. Mobile, it's just like he's cruising on 80 the whole time. I think the best line for that, Charles Barkley always says these young guys come on the league and they think, oh wow, I can jump over buildings. When they become good is, when they realize, oh, actually, I can just take the elevator to the top floor. I don't have to jump all the way. Mobile already does that. He's already got that ability to stop and change speeds. He's such a smooth player. And that's what to me when I first watched him in college. I love the most about him. I love watching smooth players, like your team max, your KDs. It's like, they don't have to always go to 95 because they're going 70 constantly. And so I really need to do. And mobile already has that in his game. And the number that's crazy is I think it's something like his foul rate and his block crater like identical, which never, ever, ever happens. Usually it's like Jaron Jackson junior, where he blocks a ton of shots, and he has a ton of fouls, and he has to learn how to block without fouling. Mobile already has that. Yeah, I think that that point you made is a really, really good one. And what you're talking about with smoothness, I think, is like, you see like latency, I call it info lag, sometimes with big guys where they aren't understanding what's happening. And you see them get out of position. I would always joke about Nick Richards who I root for at Kentucky. He was a guy who there you go, there's your first one. But he's just an example of somebody who would be trying to process the game and you saw this a little bit with 8 and people would be like, oh wait and slow, ate this. He's that. And if you really pay attention, you'd be like, no, he's thinking. He's just, but Matt efficiency and master you're kind of go hand in hand, I think when you're watching NBA players, like when you watch Luke come into the league offensively, he was very smooth, because he was processing the game in real time. He wasn't confused, he never looked overwhelmed. Mobly right now is second in the NBA and contesting two point shots. He's really raised Cleveland's defensive floor. He's been really impressed on that front. We could talk about him to the cows come home on that side of the ball. One thing I think worth pointing out to as you talked about that, and I remember thinking coming into the season, I wasn't sure how the mobley Allen thing would work and because they're both not really floor spacing bigs. And that's where it's really well. I think primarily because mobly is so smart. Some of the big the big passes he makes are absolutely unbelievable. This guy is, there was a pass against the bucks you sent me, where he's dribbling it on his left hand and he left hand passes it to Allen in the lane. And it's like, this is insane. This is not something a 20 year old should ever be doing. At 7 feet tall. And on that front, he is ahead of Anthony Davis. I think as a potential, like his upside, there's a word, take a drink. I will say that one a lot. His upside as a creator, I think, is higher than Davis's. I think Davis is more of like a score on his own island. Now, Davis can't pass. I just think that mobley has a lot of potential on that front. And little detail here, the person that he attacked with his left hand and made that one handed left hand pass was drew Holliday. This guy is a big with a 7 four wingspan. I think he can kind of see how long his arms are sometimes on like in the way he shoots. He's got sort of an awkward load up, follow through. But he offensively he's been pretty impressive among rookies he's third in scoring second and total rebounds, but he's first in blocks. I think you're a 100% right about the Jared Allen Evan mobley thing. I think Lowry's interesting too. Their lineups are interesting. But you said you had a nickname for Jared Allen and Eva mobile. What was that? The thin towers..

"I think i can do that. And he's you know smart player. I think he has a high skill of dick that touches going to improve and he does a very good hands. I thought He's on his face up game trying to drive to the basket and finish you. Don't really see guys in college. Who are big able to like really have enough room to do like a attack the basket finish off a one foot. We didn't really see him. Get any euro type of game. I think he could get into that type of finishing though as time goes on and he was he did have some pretty big dunks every once in a while coming off of one foot. So i think that's know be able to triple threat blow by the guy again. Doesn't the quickest first step in the world. Another thing that maybe could improve for him. You know a lot of it was kind of already would put the ball catch the ball and like a pick and pop from eighteen feet at the top of the key. Make his first move to his ride. And then it's been back to his left and kind of work in a position try and step around the guy and that would work okay but it's also not just like a unbelievable offense so i think that's about all i've got on him as a as an offensive player is. Is there anything else that you wanted to share. Yeah i don't wanna get too deep into like a psychological profile. Because i don't have that on mobile but it seems to me when i watched the film that e offensively kinda wishes. He were a little bit shorter because he liked it. Seems like he really relishes doing those smaller guy. Things hit head passes triple threat attacks and those passes in their ways to make that work for bigger dudes and thankfully the nba has evolved coaching wise and player development. That if a player is good enough at doing those things that they will get the opportunity but it is. It is notable with him. Like you hear all the time about the players who grew up as guards or these are things like you could see the pop in his movement and everything else when he gets those opportunities and one of the defining questions of his mba grew will be not whether he gets the opportunity to things but is he good enough at them to have a team give him those opportunities as a starter is a closer you know in second unit minutes or something like that obviously like he could probably be the could probably be there. But that's not where the rubber meets the road for a guy who could potentially be top five there and so let's get into our evaluation of him and turning on the offensive end. The bar is just so high right now for a center to be someone that you run offense through into the only guys who you're just like. Oh these guys are just like such massive problems are embiid and nicole yokich and and talent and top threat. Townsend other one. But you know he's such a shoot. He's got more size and strength than mobile. I don't see moberly getting to be that level of offensive player and so then you could get into more kind of not necessarily the same type of player but kinda you're so bonus bam type a level you know vuckovich again. Different games for all these guys but a guy who maybe can be a second type of option or you run a lot of stuff through some guards but you isn't necessarily the guy who's creating elite offense for you but could be a good support player and also potentially could be better on defense than a couple of those guys that i could see but i i don't know that that's even certain that am i think there is potentially a world in which and the other thing too is that to really unlock his potential on the offensive. And he's got to be a five defensively You know him going up against trying to post up on like jae crowder when you have another center on the floor. I just don't. I don't see that working that well to be a foundation we'll and also also his triple threat gave and all that if he's being guarded by smog is going to be very different. Yeah i mean shooting ability ability to drive and pass. The passing is a lot less useful when you have another center on the floor as well because that's center probably can't shoot particularly if it's gotta be like a burly type that's able to protect him because he's too thin so as offensive game. I think at center could be really good at power forward. I mean maybe just he could be. He would have to make himself into like an awesome shooter as opposed to just like a solid shooter. And so that's that's a point of concern. But i don't see him as just this like dominating offensive player and then defensively again. I think the potential is very high. Could he be a guy who could switch a lot. Maybe maybe could it. He just you just wonder what it would be like more out in space at the nba level. You might have to evolve into that to get more athletic. it's hard for me to get into a stance You know he does have the high center of gravity. There's a defensive glass. He could struggle. It does protect the rim. But you do see him. As a little jeremy defensively although although just a much smarter player like jerry bisbee problems the following in that the mobley's can get out of that but shrug a little bit on. The defensive glass makes blocks but you know more of his blocks are kind of in the guy's hand than in the air looking get those two and as a switch guy. I would say his film as a switch guy guys probably not as impressive as what we saw. Jaren at michigan state and jaren even is not really been that good as a switch guy in leaked these things could all evolve and if especially if you have the right. Coaching and the right body development in jeremy struggled with injuries as well. But i i would say jaren is like a pretty decent conference defensively. Would you agree with that. I think mobely. I think he could be a little bit better as a straight five in jaren has been so far but i think it's a reasonable cup is better pick and roll defender. I would say jaren also. I think we'll be able to get stronger a little bit bigger frame of. Oh both those guys are are that strong right now. You know they both gonna have like this little drive game. It will but i would say Jaren better shooter. Although journ shooting was a revelation once he actually got into.
"mobley" Discussed on Dunc'd On Basketball Podcast
"I'm like yeah you know what they're flashes here like there's some raw material but he also is going to have to like majorly improve all these but he's a a really young guy as well he is twenty years old now just turned twenty about ten days ago so maybe slightly older than your normal One and done guy but still obviously very young and raw and also a guy who because he's so thin you could see maybe getting better athletically as well and that could be a big part of how he could improve so there is this upside and a lot of different areas. But there's also you don't see that one thing other than maybe just being able to pass that you're just like oh this guy's gonna be going to hang his hat on as someone who were going to run offense through other than just as like a passer at the l. Should we talk about his post game a little bit sure. I thought that his post his post up game wasn't it wasn't particularly impressive for me as a score like he can't move guys well enough to really create some of those problems and i also. I wasn't the biggest fan of mobley's touch around the basket like when he can get all the way ensure yeah absolutely but like the kind of like the five foot six foot shot. I didn't love it. Well yeah you know it's interesting. I thought it seemed like he would get good. Looks more than he would make them outta posts ups. And that's a good way to describe it. I i had an articulated that. But that's that's a little bit harder for him to get the ball sometimes because he will get fronted or or whatever they did a decent job game to and he had twenty three percent usage. Which for this player type is totally fine. It's not dominating but it's hard for big man to get the ball lot as well 'em again. The skill level was obvious. I think he gets great extension on his jump hook if he's able to get to that he's able to step around guys. He's got up fakes. He can go right. Shoulder can go left shoulder. He can shoot a turnaround. He's got a left handed hook as well now. The post up numbers were not particularly impressive on synergy whereas these more efficient on other types m you know i think kind of that finishing and the touch came into play. And that's that's a big part of it right just whether you can make that shot. Go in you. Nickel yokich and de'andre aiden. They have that. And i don't know if been mobely does but he's still is skill level is very high and yeah you know he is not going to be able to back down but he can kinda work at a position go back and forth step around guys then get guys out of position. Step through do if you put a gun to my head. And say hey. Is this going to be someone where it's like. You're gonna throw the ball against another center and having to work. I would say probably not if you have them against us a small against a switch and particularly because he can triple you know maybe he could dribble into that as well. you know. maybe that's something you might see me think even ran like a like five one pick and roll at one point and made a nice pass out of it to a shooter so again there's like i'm not ruling out the possibility that he keeps. Be good at posting up or that. He could be good against switches or against smaller players. But he's just he's thin enough. He's just i he doesn't. He doesn't screen to me like oh man. This guy is just going to overwhelm you. We got a double team here because he's posting up against our small forward and it just going to be a disaster for us and now now we're in rotation right like maybe get there. Maybe he doesn't. I would say more likely than he doesn't I think you would need to get stronger. And more athletic as well or he's got to become a better shooter in or have pick and pop where you have to switch them on pick and roll as well His a part of that's part of why the second game i watch for mobely. After the wash gonzaga. I was against washington state and you know looked at box scores. I don't know a ton about even the pac twelve were my alma mater is offered about. Did you know that. The pac twelve conference champions because Because bill walton reminded us of that every go to these games that i watched a approximately it was phenomenal. The joy that i had listening to snippets. Bill walden just it it. It just made my it made parts of my week but so the washington state game which did not have belongs commentary because it was it was the game at wazoo. Were film from this. Really weird high camera angle. Which i kinda loved for evaluating evan defense. But that was a game that i chose deliberately because moby had twenty points. Eleven rebounds six blocks. And i'm like okay. This is e. He had a couple of games. Were scored more points but against a against the pac twelve opponent and everything else like that somebody okay. This is going to be evan. Mobely like he's gonna had this really good game. They won against washington state and he did play well to be sure but offensively scored those twenty points. He never was like oh crap like on individual plays or anything else like they weren't like sending sending too many doubles. They were the what the washington state cougars were. Not freaking out that much about evan. Mobley's offense and i thought that that was notable when you think about you know the dramatic increase in talent. That's gonna come in mobiles going to get better but the talent around him both on his team and against him is going to jump up to. Yeah now that said it's just it's tough for big guys to dominate in college in. There's not a lot of space here. you don't have a ton of shooting just. It's hard to enter the ball. 'cause there's defensive three seconds and all all that So as a finisher and gets into pick and roll but too he definitely if he gets it a little bit on the move he can pop up and kind of get his head near the rim. You're like oh dunk that fast. Does it have the greatest second jump at least at this point is career and is not that quick off the floor he can get. I don't know if he's going to be like a go. Grab it at the corner of the backboard type guy as elliot finisher you know. I think he can have solid gravity. I would consider it more above average same thing around the rim to like he can definitely get up and dunk it in ways. That are a little bit quicker than probably your average. Nba center buddies. I i don't know that. He's not like unbelievably close now. Maybe that's something that because he's so thin maybe he could really improve that explosion. Become a more powerful jumper and again. He's got pretty decent left and right hand and he's got to learn to deal with getting bumped a little bit more. You know..

"On whatever device you want. We usually just cast ours from my phone and masterclass dot com slash cap space for fifteen percent off master. And don't forget that /capspace your else in another. You came from us. Talk about the offense now. And i the actually. Most impressive skill for him for me was his passing average. Two point four assists per game which for a college. Ba guy is really good. But he's made the right decision nearly every time. I was really impressed like if the team was playing zone. And he got the ball at the foul line. He would make the right pass. If he got double teamed us able to find guys on the weak side even more impressive is that you know he likes to face up and drive and handle the ball and he's able to make plays on the move. It's not even necessarily here like we talked about bam out of bio who's been a great guy running so the d. h. o. Game out at the elbows but then when he actually like puts his head down to try and score a head stays down. He isn't able to make the play yet. I thought globally actually was able to do that when he got double teamed. Or when he would get into the lane and didn't necessarily have anything he would like find cutters along the baseline or kick it out to the correct shooter. If there is a guy who had to on the weak side he would pick the one who is. There's a beautiful play that he had one of the games where he kind of drove on the baseline got caught underneath and then was able to just do a little lay down pass to his brother for an easy layup as he was trapped underneath the basket so just really impressive suffering one of the better especially for a freshman one of the better passing bigs that i've seen so i think he's absolutely profiles as one of these guys that you can run everything through at the elbow. Which i i really liked that as a starting point for his game because i don't necessarily see him as a i think it's possible can get there but i think probably more likely than that. He's not going to really be a dominating one on one score right and the mobely offensive game is so fascinating. I i love to his interior passing like especially to his brother isaiah but that that isn't something you normally see from from big men ever like in college but especially from from a high end one who you know just not. There's not a ton of opportunity. Those look good. I also thought that mobley's passing vocabulary was better than most big jets bounce passes like two guys that were cutting and other that you just don't see very often that was very encouraging in the other reason why i think that's you brought up the kind of the limitations with him. As a score is that it could see a radically feed into a an overall game where moby could be a jump shooter as well and mobely shoots a pretty easy ball now. He only shot twelve of forty which is thirty percent on threes this year but sixty nine percent from the line is terrible and then he only mobile only took twenty five mid mid-range shot so that's as energy defines it that seventeen feet to the three point line but he was thirteen to twenty five and i thought that his the mechanics on his shot looked pretty good so i don't think that mobile is going to be able to do the yokich game of you know make passes and then if you get a smaller guy on draw double or if you get a smarter guy you just believe the crap out of him. I don't think nobody has those those physical tools or the skill tools to get there. But i think he can do some other things that are that are potent. And maybe that doesn't make him the same type of hub as the best like. I don't know that he can do the kind of like the d. h. o. Attacking for a score. The way the bam can do like we saw in the eastern conference finals in the bubble but this is a really nice place to start and its unconventional. But i think it could work you know. I think he's offense other than maybe as an offensive rebounder. I think he is pretty solid in just about every area as a big and you mentioned the shooting my guess would be that is shooting is going to be okay but not like a five alarm fire. We gotta guard. This guy is gonna hit forty percent of his threes. got like a little. I don't know that i'd go quite as far as the easy ball that you said. I think it's a little bit flat. A lot of his shots were shorts. He'll he can face up. And i'm by more mechanically like his lower body is really smooth. Rather than the way it is in the air. Yeah so so. I guess And there are times that he could like bus. Something out off the dribble. They're like times when he would just really out. Nice moves author like there's one time he caught it triple threat near the free throw line and did a jab step right and then between his legs and then i think he actually like set up a pass out of that to a guy underneath which was really impressive. So is he going to get to where he can like ice. Oh and shoot a step back like many of these things. Where i'm like. Okay like they could happen right. He's still a bit of a top of the rossa and he obviously has a very high skill level. Already the balls gotta go in the basket. I think he could get the footwork easily enough. And has the athleticism get some separation and shoot a step back or shoot a fadeaway out of the mid post or maybe face up and drive as well so maybe he could have a little bit of that ice. Oh game. I would say the odds are against it. I don't think he has like an unbelievably fast for step. I don't think that his jumper is going to be like. Oh man this is just like so good that we can't we gotta get up on them and then we're worried about blowing by but i think all those things are possible right like he. He's this is why again. I feel like i don't have a great feel for him because you'll watch him do some of these things and you're like oh the sexually could be pretty good. It's just you wonder is it. Kenny will actually be able to evolve this. You see these flashes. Kenny evolve this particular skill. And you feel that way about his post game you feel that way about his face up game other than the passing you know basically every aspect his pick and roll game as well as either a pick and pop guy or a roll man. I'm like yeah you know what they're flashes here like there's some raw material but he also is going to have to like majorly improve all these but he's a a really young guy as well he is twenty years old now.
"mobley" Discussed on Dunc'd On Basketball Podcast
"They hopefully have some pieces around him. Again this is going to be very or paul. Millsap could be another one. But they're still they're not gonna find someone who's good as jae crowder still you know and You know they do have a reza as a they have rights on him if they wanna pay. I guess that's part of your stay over like all right then you could bring back a reason to we haven't mentioned the name victory depot yet. It sounds like he's not necessarily even gonna play next year. But i could see them bringing him back on just kind of like a a minimum just to keep them in the building and then it wouldn't have as you heard writings. Yeah the i mean it would be nice because it wouldn't cost you anything to keep him. Basically in terms of your cap space this year to just sign him to a minimum. And then you keep moralities in the building and then if everything goes well you can try to bring him back for a larger price. He would be the next year because they're still have bird rights even though he went down to the minimum. That's about do you have anything else. Otto porter might be an interesting reclamation project here. Kelly oubre could be interesting for these guys. Batumi would also be fascinating. I think to necessarily doesn't necessarily have to be a four. You could have butler kind of play. The four defensively and just more of a three in that position as wall. And then you know. There's your west matthews tori. Craig type level a guy also but i think that's about all i got i just gut feeling here. Do the heat get a a major free agent. Do they make major changes next year. I don't. I don't think major changes. But i think they get a significant fraction. I think they get one of the play cards lowry or calmly. Yeah yeah between them in new york and supposedly phillies interested in a sign and trade and their home teams and their home teams and dallas is. While there's a lot of competition for those guys those guys going get paid pretty damn good. I wanna talk. Evan mobilier speaking of college and college players. Yeah let's get to mobely in can start with a little bit of background on mobely. He his the best measurements. I could find you know. It's always hard with guys especially who didn't do the combine stuff to to get these but mobely seven foot two hundred and ten pounds with a seven four wingspan or thereabouts. You take that with a grain of salt. I know standing reach was the best i could see two. Which is it was actually surprisingly low to me. You know usually usually like a a big center prospect with a wingspan like that. You'd expect more than the nine three type range for reference. Go bear and mogambo like nine seven. That's just that's like crazy. This is probably more. you know. Besides the something for wingspan. Despite when you watch your holy shit. This guy's got long arms That's not a huge standing standing reach. Maybe just has a long knackers on the north. You know it could also just be an old measurement or it's wrong or something like that but that's that's something to keep in mind. Well we'll come back to that. Yeah we will and then a little bit of background on mobely a college freshman but he turned twenty earlier this month. His dad eric mobley went to pick played. A little bit of center was the first round pick for the bucks both evidence and his five star older brother. Isaiah mobely went to a christian temecula. Which is which is outside of la. And evan what we want california high school player of the year as a junior and a senior joining jrue holiday. Is the only player ever to win that award twice. He was either third or fourth in the major high school recruit rankings behind k. cunningham jalen green and sometimes jonathan green in-coming go went to ji leaky night cunningham. Went to home state. So you'll rusty on these women on wall. So i'm kinda like where. Where do i want to start. I guess he's obviously very thin. Played with a another big. The thing that kinda stuck out to me about him is well now. I wanna get. Let's talk about art. I'm sorry i haven't place that we can choose moberly. It made me a little bit frustrated that we didn't watch film alabama to bio in college. Because there hasn't been a player for me who has a of a big like benign can go back and by steph real gm. And all that. I've been i've been obsessing over big ben prospects for a long time now. There hasn't been a player for me as a big who has had a larger merging between like what they could be if everything works out like the theory of him on offense and defense. If like both of those hit. If you get you get you know you both of those lottery. Tickets hit versus not the like worst case scenario like the fifty percent scenario and the reason why that is is that. There's a lot of really intriguing elements of evan mobilised game. I think there are a lot of people who are tantalized by mobely offensively. And that's justified like we'll get to some of that there but he's to me what what struck me. So much with mobely is that i expected to be more confident in what he is in what he will be. Then i ended up. I'm glad you said that. Because i feel the same way i really you and i are both opinionated people. Maybe one of us even more so than the other but generally i. I have a pretty good feel. I have a pretty good opinion. I don't have much certainty on evan. Mobely certainly there are very many things too like very many things. You can talk yourself into. There also aren't necessarily a huge weaknesses. Either where you're just like. Oh man this could be a big problem for them. There's maybe a couple everybody as weaknesses. But there's he's not a guy like oh man that's really glaring and he doesn't have very easy. Comp i know either you know. I can't really come up with that so he could be. This guy's like oh man like this guy just as such a high skill level any so long and he can block shots and he. Smooths out. Pretty good basketball. Iq i would say.
Why USC's Evan Mobley Is the Best Big in the 2021 Draft
"For the next two months in advance of the two thousand twenty one nba draft that is scheduled for july twenty nine. We're going to be dedicating an episode of beyond college basketball. Podcast to notable prospect. Same way we did in advance of last year's nba draft. We started this series last week with a twenty two minute profile of kate cunningham. If you missed it and you're interested don't find it today. We will turn our attention to another prospect who seems like lot to go in the top five of the two thousand twenty one nba draft. His name is evan mobile. he's a seven foot center. Who averaged sixteen point four points. Eight point seven rebounds. Two point nine blocks in two point four assists in thirty three point nine minutes per game in his one season at usc shop fifty seven point eight percent from the field. He was the pac twelve player of the year freshman of the year and pac twelve defensive player of the year. He was a consensus second team. All american who led usc to the elite eight of the ncaa tournament. Most mock drafts have him second or third in this. Two thousand twenty one. nba draft. So let's start with this dead leg. Is evan mobely to you clearly. Unquestionably the best big in this rat. Yes i think. That is unquestionable. We agree. I mean at this point. How about this. How about this for a quick complica- compare him to a recent big one. He played against and was good against james wiseman to me mobilize more versatile player with the higher upside and a year ago in a weaker draft. Class what's interesting is wise men went second moby might wind up going second or third we mentioned in the previous partly sided. I don't think he's going to go. I in this draft because of centers. And how they're viewed and how their role is changing By the year but it is interesting like if you put mobile wiseman even knowing what wise. Men's out like a year ago i would have said the same thing i think i would still take mobely over wise men coming out of college and we agree on the sofa. If we agree there yes mobis got to be the best big available in this
"mobley" Discussed on Sci-Fi Talk: The First Season
"Make it. Look seamless and editing. There was one shot where i think. The camera was tilted in a way where you'd see several floors at the same time and i think you're going in one direction with one reaper. And then somebody else's being chased below you and it's happening at the same time so that was that was a cool thing and you know when everything's cut together. It seems like one continuous flow. Yes like kind of. It's just a chaotic battle. Yeah but it was. Cut it together brilliantly. I really liked the pacing of that scene and it was something we really haven't seen before. So i i really appreciated the the originality of it a little bit so i was school. The whole mythology that he created for the movie was pretty neat. And i think the whole concept of it that wants to help people get away. People managed to get out. Yeah yeah yeah. I love it great. I think it's a terrific idea. And i kinda surprised that it hadn't been used before. I think he did a great job. With what i like to. Is you know from an emotional side of your characters. He's not just all doing these action. Things is that it's really thing you connect watching him as with his girlfriend. I mean there's enough. There's enough scenes with him early on to establish they have a pretty tight relationship. I think they're engaged if i remember. So yes they are. So they're they're pretty tight and you know they're gonna do something really cool together and then he kind of all this happens and then he Oh i have to also say for the folks when they see the scene they have the in your couple couple in the film Your character and your girlfriend's care you're like a special place and that was a great special place to join another location that we got for free that just immaculate setting it. Was you know huge waterfall. And which is up kind of north georgia area on a college campus. Oh really yeah. Yeah and I think they were a little concerned with us. Shooting up there but you know we we. We reassure them that we were good people. And when you weren't there to mess up anything we just need to get some shots and it's just it's gorgeous gorgeous himself but he he did have a nice emotional arc with her like you know. A lot of his motivation in the film is essentially. What out saying anymore she goes missing. And that's part of his motivation is to find her. So i just like that. And there are some nice little moments with him You know it emotionally that. He goes through that. I liked the videotape when he sees the video with her. I thought you know you have to really you have to really bring it that scene otherwise it just falls apart and i thought she did. I thought that was really uh goal. Was it a bit of a challenge because a lot of times you're not really with her. I mean you're seeing on the tape. You're talking on the phone. I mean it's it's is it more of a challenge when you don't have the the actual scene the person to kind of convey those feelings and do that kind of thing. Yeah definitely of course. You don't have the actor to feed off of four to you. Know to take your your your emotional cues from. Yeah there's a lot of kind of summing that you know in a vacuum a little bit buzz. Every actor has their half their ways have their ways of doing that kind of stuff and do the best. You can with what you've got and sure try to make as honest as possible. There's a great scene where Where he really blended as beautifully where there's a big important information given out on the news and you're and he's showing all these people watching the same news report and the cameras like moving and then and then it ends with you and i thought that was just talk about capturing a feeling and then sustaining and really delivering and i thought that was really a nice nice moment. Yeah i i love that shot. And i thought that was so such a cool conceit to do it that way and to show virtually in one shot i mean changing but everybody seeing the same thing at one time and kind of using a single camera move to convey all that i loved it. I thought it was driven. And you're seeing their emotional reaction to it too. Which i thought was great. I mean i really like that. so yes. that's a very indie like film kind of move. You know which. I thought was a whole the dalai shot crop. Yeah that was very like That's like hey let's go for it. You know and that was that was nice. That was really really nice. And then there's some nice scenes in the church with you that i thought were really cool to that. You did that some good stuff there too. Yeah so leah. there's some there's some interesting little things with him. there's an interesting reveal about him Towards the film we find out A little bit about his past and what happened and so that was that was cool. Did you guys actually shoot in a real hospital for some of the scenes. yeah the The hospital sequence was a a real hospital. That was not A functioning hospital okay. It was Outpatient okay so during the day during the week they would have people in one wing of the hospital then over the weekend it was completely vacated so we got permission to go in there and virtually shoots all weekend Which was a very hellacious few days. Just 'cause you know you're up. All our i mean shooting fourteen sixteen hour days or something just to get everything done and it was kinda spooky to. This place was Old and had these really creepy operating rooms. Ace meant so it really it all that kind of enhanced the feeling that that you know that this was not a safe place to be so but it was fun. It was a fun few days. And plus you're shooting not only knows it's not in sequence. It's based on location. So you're shooting everything you need from the hot. Yeah we had to go back to. You had You know you think you're done with something like oh great we're done and then you know you pick ups where you've gotta go back and get something that you didn't get or something that makes the story flow a little bit better and so we ended up having to go back but we got everything we needed. I think to one thing. And i interviewed him recently and i'm glad that he scored this film. Christopher carter's or. I thought he did a bang-up job with the music. Yeah he's amazing that one tracking shot for example the the music that he laid beneath that was perfect. Talk about capturing the mood enhancing the visuals. It was just great. I mean the score's everywhere and you know he incorporates a lot of different things but You know creepy action because you have a little bit of both You know. I mean at times to the reapers are matrix light but not really the matrix but but they're reapers but You know it was. It was interesting. And i.
"mobley" Discussed on Sci-Fi Talk: The First Season
"Know the film. You know the concept that he was gone for. I think just carries across really cool. Well he cut together some other things that people should see. And i'm not going to give away that that you would think would happen to somebody that goes in that type of situation and there's a a process where you're are there for the first time in what you're going through and you know between you're acting in the editing. It really works well. It looked like they were almost like caves or something like that or some of it was shot. Yeah it it was another thing that was so great about you. Know shooting the films that we shot in in atlanta and people were just so willing to donate. I mean we had. We had all kinds of equipment donated and and location and this is one of those locations that was kinda given to a nice which allowed us to make a film with virtually no money and make it look like you know we had all these a class. You know great locations and It was it was basically like an underground tunnel was in the front this person's yard. Yeah and you would. Never i mean would have no clue no clue no. It's like in the middle of buckhead area of atlanta and it's like like kind of a storm drain essentially but it's a really huge drain. Wow it was just big enough that we could shoot a couple of different angles and make it look like you know like thing had all kinds of tunnels going off of it stuff like that. So yeah he did some fascinating things with the camera like longshots view and you know and he distorted things a little bit and really made it look like something we're not used to seeing a imagination goes a long way you don't need to. The best example is ever seen spawn spun. It's been a while though the reason i'm saying it is they have a vision of hell that they did. And it's like the whole thing you know souls and all this and it's it looks like a video game it just doesn't look real and yet he was able to capture. This would probably a third of the budget for that scene but he was able to capture this cold and damp and and creepy place and really make you look like helga. The me there was other things that people should see that that also create the mood of hell which really worked down. I i really love that about it that it isn't your traditional view at all. Yeah but it's still somewhere you don't wanna be which i think is what it's about. It's somewhere that you do not want to be and not want to be in that situation and he just thought of different ways of conveying that. I've heard this said by other people to that when you have the limitations like we had a huge limitation as far as budget You've got to rely on your creativity and your imagination and if you can do that do a well then you end up with something better because you don't have the money to bail you out. Well let's just throw some effects up there some you know fiji and they make it whatever. We're in huge supply of creativity and made up for relaxed budget. Now it's a challenge. It really shows. I mean there was a lot of what they the old fashioned elbow grease. I think to to really make it happen. You know and yeah. I mean we were in the actors. Were done the joke on set with like off with like you know when we were done with a scene it was time to pick up the light and load up the grip truck so when we stopped acting you know our day was over we were helping move sets and move you know. Move all the equipment stuff. But i loved it i just. It made me not more much more proud of the process and the project i took ownership of it. But that's cool. I mean they're speaking of you know some of the things you had to do. I mean you. You have to use a gun. I mean had had you used a gun at all and he capacity before shot pistols before in a range. Okay about it. So i had some experience but you know we were. We were running around hotels shooting guns so a little bit of a different feeling you get right into it. It's fun. I mean it's this kind of deconstruct the hotel little bit that one sequence which is really one of the real set pieces. I think the film for me. I don't mean the where some of the reapers because these these repairs they have a really unique. Abilities is not just you know. Just they come at you. In a lot of different ways we'll say that yeah and Or some of those stunt people that from the stunt team they were. Yeah they were. Actually i think yeah there were. There were several of them to to younger male reapers. Were were stunt guys. Okay okay also actors yeah they worked with mills and so they had. They had a lot of those expertise already going into it. What about the young women who you know the the female report i think they were I know lori. Bath edge man. Who's a friend of mine that i worked with atlanta before the before the film but She's not a person you know really does a great job. Was that female reaper. Number one or two. That was female reaper number. One okay. good good. She was good. She was very good while that was there. Were some nice stunts involving her too. Yeah and i think they had. They had a girl that looked like her. I mean yeah just like How how does this out but we have people that fortunately that looked enough like some of the actors take it double quite well. I didn't really notice You know a lot of you know you can pick movies like this today. And that was not one area. That i was very seamless. I couldn't even including your stunt with the truck. Yeah i mean. I said the nathan do that. I couldn't tell. I said hey. More power to him if he because that was quite a jump. Yeah and we'll see that. I'm tempted to say. Yeah that was me. But no wasn't they had a guy that was In my same height and bill pretty much worked out really well. There's more taught so. Stay tuned back on scifi talk. I'm tony tomato. The how much is there's a lot of time spent in the actual in well in the room. There's a little bit of time. And then there's a whole lot of time spent like In the Like i guess in the pathways at the hotel because like the hallways are like exposed outside external. Yeah so i mean so. There's a lot of that. So was there a lot of planning with you and the team has to. Who was going to do. What was everything kind of choreographed. Yeah we had to choreograph it to some degree. Because i mean i think mostly for greg's brain. He had to know what was nice about that. And he'll tell you this is that being the editor as well he could you know kind of go into his head and think okay. This is what i got to cut you next. This is what we had everything kind of ordered in his mind going into it so we would. We shot it in pieces and You know in different parts of the hotel. It kind of had a little bit. Like kinda like a shell game where You know you've got one one. You know my character disappearing around a corner and then the reaper. Coming down the other way just barely missing me. But then you know malley. And and the other refighting christie's two stories op or something. So it's like these multi level fights going on different parts of the hotel. So we and i think the trick was shoot at all independently and then cut it all together.
"mobley" Discussed on Sci-Fi Talk: The First Season
"Film noir but I really enjoy what they're doing. We yesterday was a lie. I think it's sufficiently Asteria and stylistic and everything. So i mean we're all getting bits and pieces because the film is just literally you just finished not too long ago right. Don't think they've even finished a month yet. But essentially it's has nor elements but sci fi elements as. Well yeah and that really makes for something. That's its own animal. It's not something you can candidate. Is this a horror film. Fi fell film thing so a category. Necessarily that fits into absolutely have you. What have you seen of the trailer. And i've been impressed. I really have. I mean the production values. Look first rate you know. There's a shot at kp where she's walking in the fog with a fedora and i'm sitting there going. Wow they really worked on this one. You can see it shot definitely so i mean you know. This is a For james it's a labor of love too of course but you know. I'm just very impressed with him and i think he has a very bright future ahead of him as a director too. I think he's exactly side. He's very committed in you. Spend on this thing for years. So i i really. I really hope the best for him. For the for the movie They deserve it now. Had you met some of the other actors before before doing this project no. I hadn't everyone everyone i met was were new new people to me. Really a pleasure working with with kipling chase. They're great it's been fun. Did you get a chance to meet some of the other people. Maybe you didn't work with ice to briefly like john. I only met john When we did the re- through and then maybe a couple of other like cast meetings or something like that. I remember Some of the initial initial readings way back win But that was really Because we didn't work. We didn't have any scenes together. So that's really like. I didn't really you know being a fan of films and things like that you know when i used to watch movies as a kid and even like a teenager. You thought well everybody he worked on. The movie knew each other but it works. I mean if you're not necessarily in the scene with someone that chances are you're you're not on the set of the day you know that they're working so you don't necessarily know those people get you know anytime on your voc people that nfl that our buddy. And then that's the first time they met Yeah exactly and that's of what our job you know. Make the allusion pill real. That's why they call it acting. You know when you connect with a total stranger in your your. We've been buddies for years. So that's cool. So are you going to be able to do the film festival circuit. Are you going to be able to attend some of those or i would love to. I'm not sure. I don't know where it's going to go yet but i would love to. I'm gonna do all hand to try to get to some of them. Depending on how how successful. They are getting into the into the festival. So cool yeah. I would love to. I love the i love doing that and I got a chance. The first time i got to do with the other side. Yeah we went to slam dance and a couple of other festivals and it was just a blast. I mean you're there with a bunch of other people that are trying to do the same thing and they all have a film that they're trying to promote it. It's a really encouraging fun environment. Being did you get a chance to see the other side with an audience. Yeah i did in festivals And that was the first time we've seen it with kind of an objective audience. I guess you know it wasn't people that had just worked on the film right. You know people that were paying their film festival goers but people are paying to come see hidden got a tremendous response we. We always had a really good response so toys. Nice segue into that film. I mean i thought what. I was impressed with Speaking of another director gregg. Bishop i think has somebody to keep an eye on this from this film and he's also very typically new to the process and i was just really impressed with what he did with the budget that he had. You know you can see that. It wasn't very high budget but it doesn't mean the film has to be sloppy. You know i know and then I thought i thought from all the principal actors and even the secondary actors. I think he got good performances from everybody too. So i mean i mean for you. That must have been a challenge. It was at the most physical role. You've ever done what you say. Oh definitely yeah certainly. Yeah i mean how much of it was you. Did you have anybody something for you at any part at all i did and i i did. Maybe eighty percent of the stunts. I mean i did all the all the fighting and combat type stuff which is total blast. I mean it's like a kid in the candy store because it just getting do all the stuff that every boy wants to. Do you know we had a team. That's a local stunt team there in in atlanta which is where we shot. yeah Black knight stunt at by nils on saga and he And he brought. He brought some amazingly talented people. That common basically up up the level of film by having these great stunts and one particular stunt where i jump off the hotel which is which is cool. Fun kinda highlight stunt. The film i think and they had a guy that came into that so that was not me We don't we had a few people on board for that. I saw that scene and that was definitely one of those. I didn't expect that coming kind of you know that. Was it really. Cut that sequence together so beautifully to the whole thing. That happens at the At the hotel one of the things that impressed me about You know the some of the things that he did and then that was like the the exclamation part of the scene play button. Yeah i just liked the journey of your character and what he goes through. You know so. People know it's essentially your character is safe to say character gets killed. Yeah and then. He ends up in You know the other place in the bad play and we find out why to write won't give that away for those. I haven't seen it. Some of those scenes were interesting You know how you use different type lenses and distorted things and then had you with blood and stuff and it looks like some of you guys were wearing no closer naked. Was that right or a really. That's why i joke with people. That was my first feature film already doing new things. I didn't didn't take me very long to you know do it. All but done very tastefully and what i thought. His premise in his concept was that And this is all part of the synopsis. So i'm not giving anything away but right character gives to hell. His thing was that you go to hell. You don't you don't have close. I mean thrown in there like you're like out exposed completely vulnerable. That made that made total sense to me and it. that doesn't mean that it wasn't uncomfortable. Shooting it it's definitely makes sense for you..

Yesterday was a lie with an interview with nathan mobley who plays the lab technician in film. We also talked to nathan about another film. He's out that you get on. Dvd call the other side and he also previews and upcoming project a short scifi film that he's working on his well. Let's go to the phones and nathan mobley. Thanks for for being on the show. I done eighth and i really appreciate it in. Yesterday was a lie. I mean you play the lab assistant but that's very misleading and movies. Because a lot of times when you just have a name. Doesn't it means smaller part. But i know in yesterday. A lot of people just have names like that cases characters singer for example so it doesn't mean anything as far as what the scope of the role is. Can you kind of describe. And i know this is a different kind of film. We don't want to give any spoilers shirt in the context of the film. What your character is Well like you said he's His job as a lab assistant. He's working in this lab where they're doing some. I guess it's okay for me to say some undercover very clandestine type work and The kind of stuff that not many people know about obviously so so hero comes to to kind of tap into whatever they're doing and the last what was great about the labs distant was created the role with that not only is he kind of giving them some pivotal information for the film but he's also Fun to play because he's Also girl crazy but he happens to be a big dork. So therein lies with rama and So these beautiful women come in and not in his wildest dreams has he. Does he ever think that this could be something going to happen to him. So they using their powers of coercion. Then and you know that beautiful woman have they they they attempt to get some of the sensitive information out of the lab system. Would that be in the sense of kipling's character of oil and so Chases singer oil on singer I wanna dance around a little bit. But essentially is this something these experiments something related to time. Yes okay it is when people pieces together with john newton's interview that we have they know that something's up and actually as it has come out that there is apparently a nazi journal. That is out there. That has like dr frankenstein. Secrets of life and death. This one has pretty much some really interesting information and concrete theories on time and manipulating it. So right so that's kinda like the the the arctic. Like in raiders law stark. Or you know the the the thing that everybody wants it or because of the film noir references this film. I guess you could say. It's like the maltese falcon and the loose of a piece of history that contains that they need to kind of you know the final piece of the puzzle spotted you come to this project Interestingly my good friend. Josh waters who Was the casting director for the film or at least in a like assistant role. I'm not sure what is title is exactly what he was helping to cast a film and we we went to high school together and and perform together and so we knew each other and he said. Hey there's this film that. I'm working on that i'm helping to cast. And there's a role at the you'd be create for and that was fiscal yet and i went in win re For james and andrew. And and we had. I think we have maybe one or two call backs and analysis about it took a while. They were they were they. Were you know securing the funding which is always An arduous undertaking for a for a independent film. Sure to a little bit of a little bit of time but then we started rehearsing getting the ball rolling as fun. How much rehearsal time did you have With the cast. Oh man we heard of. I mean we had we would get together for hersal at least like at least three weeks where we got together once or twice a week and spend a few hours working on the scene which is really a luxury because you don't hear that too often and maybe you know because it was an independent film. The smaller film have that luxury. We could get together some spare time and i loved it. I thought it was great. And you just makes you that much more prepared on the day when you go to shoot you kind of ready for anything because you've been through it all so did you start like maybe like a table reading kind of thing and then maybe do something. We're james may blocked out some things or definitely. We started with with a read initially with all the all the actors Table read and then and then we got together and started breaking down and he started rehearsing individual senior. Yeah we actually blocked it out. Got a real sense of you. Know how things are they. I think they wanted to nail down whether locations. We're going to rain. And then they had that in that rains then we start blocking and that sort of thing. It was good fun now. was locations mostly indoors or a laboratory. Somebody would have to be endorsed. I would think. Yeah all all of everything that i shot was indoor and i believe the majority of the film was Was indoors as well. I think there were a couple of like allie shots or things like that. But it's all at night. Yes so they had anything. We did endorse a block out. We're shooting during the day. We had a block out all the windows and you know really high. Very dramatic lighting thinks. it's filmed war. Yes peace so you're shooting for black and white so essentially the colors that you wear as i've talked to some of the other actors have to work for black and white. So did you wear guinea. Strange color combinations. That looked horrible in color in black and white look right on. I don't know. I don't remember honestly. I don't think my character kind of like. I said he was a little bit of a. You know he wasn't the hit. This cat you know in the world so you know anything that he wore with slightly on the dorky side. Anyway so. I don't remember the colors being especially you know clashing or anything like that from what i've seen. Everything looks great. it really plays well. Have you had a chance to see some of the film or most of it or the only thing. All that i saw was what the trailer. And then when i went into when we did. Some of the eighty are some of the dialogue recording. After the fact. I saw some of the film. Then okay cool because you're basically trying to match up and i don't know if you're if you're listening they probably do. People are so savvy these days but You do think called looping which is where you go in and the dialogue that you get on the day on the day of the shoot. A lot of times doesn't work because you've got other noises running over it or whatever and so you have to go back into a studio after the film was shot and rerecord some dialogue but it has to match precisely to you know your movements and everything so it's kind of a. It's it's difficult but it's fun. I will you a fan of fossil film noir. All did you like those movies. I honestly i hadn't seen a lot of it and I watched some more. You know when when this When we did this. But you know. I'm not.

"I'm Ari Shapiro and I'm Audie Cornish. Every day since Election Day over 100,000. People in the United States have tested positive for the coronavirus. That's pushing the health care system to capacity. Many places. There just aren't enough doctors and nurses to handle the surge in North Dakota healthcare workers who have tested positive for the coronavirus are now allowed to keep working if they remain asymptomatic. And everywhere. Nursing staffing agencies are slammed with request from hospitals for more nurses. That's where people like Lydia Mobley come in. She's in ICU nurse for fast staff travel nursing, and she recently took a new contract at a hospital in central Michigan. She actually left nursing about a year ago but came back because of the pandemic. I joined the Navy last fall. But once I got out of active duty in October, and BKN reserve life Obviously there's a huge calling for nurses. Right now there's a huge need, and you can't really say no to that right now. Earlier today, I asked Lydia Mobley about what she was seeing in her home state of Michigan. When I think of Michigan, this is a state. That's all lot of protests when the shutdown orders came from the Democratic governor, What are you seeing? When you're walking into work, right? I mean, are people wearing masks? Do you see social distancing? Definitely definitely a lot more need for people to do a lot more because no. Unfortunately, there's a lot of people that still don't wear masks. It's really hard to watch because at the hospital a lot of times before their innovated, which means put on a ventilator because they can't breathe on their own. When they're still struggling to breathe, and they're saying, Well, I didn't know covert was real, and I wish I'd worn a mask and then it's already too late. But it's very sad because you can see the regret. You know, obviously is there struggling to breathe and It's finally hitting them that this is real, and it makes me very sad. How common is that? I mean, how common or do you encounter patients who Didn't take the warning seriously. Uh, every shift multiple patients every shift multiple patients because there's a lot of elderly patients, obviously, um, although it's not all elderly patients. It's people in their forties and fifties and those of the ones I hear the regret from that. Maybe they could have Dunmore. Or maybe they should have realized it was more serious. But we get a lot of elderly patients who had it probably transmitted from their families and their families on the phone or very Remorseful about not doing more to keep their family members safe. What advice have you gotten from your colleagues who have been treating this disease since the spring. To be very honest with you just survive. That's what they tell me a lot like because unfortunately, we can't give The level of care that we could give when the staffing ratios were better and Ah, lot of them said We've just been trying to survive, like keep the patient alive and keep ourselves alive. A lot of them. Talk about how don't ever run into a room without your pee pee even if that patient is coding, which is hard, because that's your first instinct as a nurse, but again at the end of the day, we still have to protect ourselves. Even if things are very serious for the patient. How do your workers your co workers seem in terms of burnout? Very burned out very burned out. What does that look like? For folks who don't maybe have nurses in their lives? What does that even mean? S O burnout for nursing. I'm not sure if you're familiar with compassion, fatigue. But it's it's similar to combat fatigue. That's there's irritability. Obviously you're tired, but you're just doing the best that you can. And I think the way we get through it is just together. You know the camaraderie and have been Shoulder lean on and someone to talk to and just knowing that you're not alone in the situation and that if the tough time but we're gonna we're getting through it together, and you're not alone. Well, Lydia Mobley. Thank you. So much for speaking with us. Thank you so much for having me Lydia Mobley and ICU nurse working at a hospital in central Michigan.

NCAA rules Memphis freshman James Wiseman ineligible for 12 games
"Never convince me that penny hardaway a was just by cannon out money to a mom because the mom wanted to move to be close to the daughter if the mom son was a mid major player. I bet that doesn't happen. It happened because James Wideman was the best prospect his age literally in the world. Okay so that's that's his version But even if you accept the more likely realistic not dumb virgin which is now he was trying to get. James is in high school to play basketball for east high school so he could win a state championship. That still doesn't rise to the level of what these cases usually are in other words. Penny Hardaway was a memphis booster. Yes and he provided money to a mother of of a student athlete. A recruit a student athlete true but it wasn't to get James Wiseman to go to Memphis. It was to get as many go to east high school and so that's unusual. That's not the way these things normally work now. I do think you can start to connect some dots here. Because Penny has said that he had no idea when he provided that money to James Wiseman and it allowed to move to Memphis. He had no idea that he was going to be Memphis head coach in one day recruit James. Listen to Memphis and I can't tell you what he had hit so I can't say that's is not true. I can just tell you that. I had an idea that he would be the head coach Memphis in fact on the day. James Wiseman moved to Memphis. I said this is why. You've got fire W. Smith after this season in higher penny hardaway it because if you wait another season as minority be signed to Kentucky but if you do it after this season after James's junior year of high school then at some point either before or during his senior year of High School Penny Hardaway could bring him and the other players that ever relationships with to the University of Memphis so it penny didn't have any idea it was going to happen. That's fine but I had a very clear idea. That not only should happen that it probably could and it actually did so. Oh I do think you can reasonably say and it was interesting because the incident late term this a recruiting inducements and I think you can reasonably caught a recruiting inducement. And here's how the eleven thousand five hundred dollars that went to wise. Mother is what led to him being east high school and him being at East High School at at least contributed to Penny Hardaway. Getting the job and I don't think there's any way to intelligently argue that that financial commitment mid-may that he made to the family didn't help him. Recruit James Wiseman to the university Memphis. I I don't WanNa go on off like ten minute tangent but like. How many degrees breeze removed is that from Mike Boynton hiring Kenan Cunningham to his staff geographic advantage in addition to a familiar one or USC doing the same thing? With the Mobley's you're providing a financial opportunity for the family to be closer to a geographic region. Now that's legal. I have no problem with them. Hiring you're like what like how many degrees separated really from all of that. No listen I'm with you know doing what Penny Wise Men's mother to get. Get James Wiseman eight really that much different than when I say it's less I think it's I don't think I think it's less offensive. Well here's here's the thing. Whatever were you think's offensive not offensive? I got here's the problem. One is allowed. The other is not answering. Wanted to boil down to that. That's what it's always going to boil down to and if you want to change the roles I've said it a million times. Put me in charge. GimMe all the power. I'll change all the roost rules tomorrow. But the rules are the rules as long as they're in place and what might Boynton I did is allowed. And what Penny Hardaway did is not allowed and it really is simple as that you can hate the instable a all you want. I Hate I'm too but this is an undeniable violation and when Memphis started down the path that started it created additional problems that they did not I need to create.
#41 - How To Make Learning More Effective
"So Aaron shared with me how he took one hundred of their top. GM's for a two day Leadership Development Summit that address topics topics and issues that were of interest to his team. They also have several Ellen de portals where they offered articles videos podcasts which Aaron told me also includes this one to supplement the training session the challenges having now though is how to make sure these new insights are applied and not lost when in these leaders returned to the hectic pace of their everyday work and more importantly. How can you keep them engaged in wanting to learn even more when Aaron aren't asked me this question. I asked if I could share his story because it's a question I've been asked many times over the years when giving keynotes corporate trainings in fact it's one of the reasons one of my leadership keynotes deals with how leaders can shift from simply training employees to creating a continuous learning environment in their workplace so I know there's as many of you out there who are also dealing with this issue as well so what I'd like to do is share with you. Some simple steps that you can take right now that will help make the new the skills and insights. You learn stick to start off. Let me give you a little context to help frame these steps in their book made to stick chip and Dan Heath present. This idea that a sticky idea is something that's understood. It's remembered and it changes something now while their book was about how how to make what you communicate stick with your audience. I think we can all agree that when we learn new skills or insights we wanted to be something that's understood that that we remember it and that it ends up changing the way we work continuing with chip and Dan's book they describe how they are six principles behind what makes an idea sticky eighty and these six principles are simplicity unexpectedness concreteness credibility emotions and stories now while they say you don't necessarily need all six principals to make your message stick. I want to offer you three steps. You can take that will employ the six principles again if we go back to the problem. Erin shared one which other leaders have also asked me about the challenge we face when it comes comes to training or going to a conference to learn new insights to improve the way we lead is why were there we could see the value of these approaches but but soon after we returned to our workplaces these new insights often fade away as we return to the routines of our day to day work lies so the first step you need take is one that. I often get my audiences to do at the end of my talks and that is to identify one simple change. You'll make based on what what you've just learned now. This one thing you choose has to contain two characteristics. I it has to be something. You can start doing now. With these this and second it has to be something that's personally meaningful. The reason stems from the work of two different researchers Stafford behavioral scientists scientists. BJ Fog who found that the key to changing behavior is taking small steps and Harvard Professor Teresa Mobley who was the second guest to appear on on this podcast who found in her research that making progress on personally meaningful goals leads to enduring success and happiness on the job in other words. You want to focus on applying a new behavior or skill. You've learned on something that matters to you you so that this becomes something that you don't have to do but it's something you want to do and this that lines up with the sticky principle support of simplicity as we're focusing on one specific thing that we can do right now that will improve our work in personally meaningful fashion this also ties into the emotion principle because as chip and Dan right this sticky principle is driven by answering the question of what's in it for me me which you've already answered by this exercise of picking that one simple change you want to make thanks to what you've learned so now that you have this one simple behavior or skill in mine the obvious question becomes. How do you make sure you apply it every day. Well that's the next step and for for this. We're going to use the example of very successful person and one of my favorite comedians Jerry Seinfeld well. Let's start the insanity now. It doesn't matter whether you like it or not as this has nothing to do with his sense of humor but more to do with what he's identified as being the key to his success comedian Brad Isaac Isic once as Seinfeld for tips on what he could do to improve his success at comedy and Seinfeld told him that what he needed to do was to commit to writing every everyday because writing jokes every day would help him hone his craft. Now what's the Real Jim in the story is what Seinfeld told Isaac as being how he pushes himself to write every day especially when he doesn't want to basically what Seinfeld does is. He gets a wall calendar that shows every every day of the year and every day that he writes he puts a red X. in the box for that day once he's done that for a couple of days he's created a chain of XS on this calendar and as Seinfeld told Isaac you like seeing that chain especially when you get a few weeks under your belt. Your only job is to not break the chain now the reason why this is a great strategy for anyone to us is because it embraces braces something that I'm sure you've all heard and read about gamification as Seinfeld says himself he transformed the task of writing into would game where his only job is to not break the chain now. You don't need to get a three hundred sixty five day wall counter for your office us but what you need to do is get a notebook that you use a journal to just write a quick note of what you did to practice this new behavior or skill the reason why is because you need to be able to visually see this chain growing which is critical for this to work because this allows allows you to shift from focusing on how well you apply this new behavior or skill on a given day to the process of applying it regularly elite and consistently towards making it a habit going back to the principles of making things stick you can see that this step ties into the principle of of concrete nece as you can see visually for yourself how you've applied this new behavior or skill on a given day and also links to the principle of credibility because as you re back how you apply this new behavior or skill and not qualifying how good are bad you were at it you can. I can see how this new behavior or skill can be used successfully everyday and hopefully also noticing some positive benefits growing along on with and this leads to my last step that will help make those new behaviors and skills you've learned stick and this one revolves around one of the points. I share my keynote talk on how the shift from training people to continuously improving talent and that is you need to treat learning as shared experience now to help illustrate rate the value of this step. I WANNA share a story about one of the leaders. I wrote about in my book Leadership Vertigo. Billy Taylor was the plant manager for the Goodyear Vale Plant. When he joined the plant? It was one of the most poorly performing appliances goodyear and was at risk of being closed within two. Oh Years Taylor transformed it into one of the top performing manufacturing plants a good year and was promoted to an executive role at goodyear while there are many things Taylor did to achieve this outcome. There's one I wanNA share in the context of making our learning stick and that is how he put up information boards throughout the plant that identified which manufacturing team was working on a given product line and the level of output. They were creating now the reason he did this was was not simply to hold the different production teams accountable for their productivity but so that's different teams could learn from one another about what they were doing to improve their performance performance. In fact Taylor facilitated this cross learning between teams by putting up other boards throughout the plant that showcase projects is employs initiated improve the plants productivity and cost effectiveness as a result of the lessons. They learned from one another working on the plant floor. Now remember remember that the first step I told you about was to pick that one behavior or skill that you've learned that you WanNa make stick because you not only know no you can make this a part of your leadership tool kit but also because you know it's going to have a meaningful impact on how you perform your job well well. The wonderful thing of identifying this at the start of this process is that it allows you to not only attain some early wins but you also now have something something of value to share with other leaders in your organization in terms of how they can apply this behavior or skill to improve their leadership and conversely when when they share with you how they apply other behaviors and skills to the way they lead you gain better insights on how you yourself can apply these other behaviors and skills to continue learning and growing the key point. I want you to take note of is that learning can't exist in a vacuum or silo but as I pointed out in the first step it needs to be connected both to why you do what you do and how you go about getting things done in your everyday the day work and again going back to chip and Dan's principles of stickiness we can see how this step clearly ties into that principle of stories in how we're sharing sharing our stories our experiences with learning to improve ourselves but it also ties into the principle of unexpectedness because in en- sharing your lessons learned you stand to gain both new insights into how to build on what you're currently doing as well as where you can start next in that process of applying applying what you've learned
