"rob walker" Discussed on Design Matters with Debbie Millman

"Because I was recently rereading a diary that I discovered in my closet from when I was in the 7th grade. And I think as we age, we sort of forget that we were once really, really, probably the best word I could put it is challenged in terms of what our worldview could contain. And mine was all about boys. And barbies and all sorts of really immature things. And I look back at the time of my life and I remember myself being me now, even though I'm, you know, there's no way to connect the two. And so I feel bad to think, oh my gosh, you know, if I were that age putting that kind of stuff out in the world, I would just be humiliated coming back to look at it 30 years later. It's a tough issue because I don't know what it's like to be a kid now. I really don't know. And I feel like one of the dimensions of being a kid now is that the culture treats you like a kind of alien, like everyone gathers around and says, you're so weird, you this online thing, you know, your attitude toward it and they treat young people like a different species. And I talk to a lot of young people and I don't think that they're that different. I think they're very much like us. Boys and bars. They're just regular, you know, that we have a lot in common, but there's no way and there's no way that when I was 16, you could have communicated to me the notion of my 42 year old self. It's not comprehensible. So if that's the starting point, and we have that in common with today's 16 year old, what's different about today's 16 year old is that they may or may not be putting that equivalent of your teenage diary in a place that is much more difficult to erase than the diary would be. And that's part of developing as a human is I think, is the ability to kind of erase, you know, and say like yeah or forget. Or forget? Yeah. I remember, but secret away or whatever you want to call it, you know, lie about it, I don't care, you know, however you want to position it, but I think that that's part of being a person. Well, what I think is interesting is that the way in which young people communicate is I think very similar to the way that I did when I was that age. It's just via a different type of technology. I agree. What was so interesting about reading my diary was seeing how many phone calls I was making? Well, then I called Liz and then Liz col tell me the chemical called me back and then Tammy wanted to know what David said. And it just went on and on and on like this as if it were the most important thing. You were at the tail dirus, though. You were keeping good records. That very brief moment in my life. So you talked about being a youngster. What did you want to be when you grow up? Did you ever envision that you'd end up being a columnist for The New York Times? No, no, no. Do you have what we are aspirations? Well, so I grew up in a Katie, Texas, which had Houston. You know, I think that my professional aspirations didn't happen until college, which I went to University of Texas in Austin. And that was kind of where I discovered journalism and I discovered this kind of realm in which I could operate that would allow me to meet interesting people and ask questions. But give me sort of a cover because I'm not uncommon for people in the profession that I'm in by nature very shy. And I have a very hard time. Like if you put me in a party where I don't know people, I just immediately like I leave. I can't cope with it at all. But if I have a structure and journalism offered me a structure to sort of deal with the world. So I was happy to have that. And the idea that you could meet people you wanted to meet who you were interested in and express to some audience what was of interest about them that was very exciting. So that's became my aspiration. The idea of the times wasn't really relevant to me at all. I know people who grew up wanting to work for the times. That's not how my career played out. I went to UT. I moved to New York in the early 90s and worked at a trade magazine called American lawyer. And I was an editor for a while and just kind of worked my way up. After American lawyer, I had ended up working in sort of business magazines and personal finances to the 90s. So this is an explosive category and the magazine business, publishing business. And I worked at smart money, fortune and money in rapid succession. There was a high demand for people who understood that world. And the Times Magazine was looking for an editor who knew that world. And while I never really marketed myself that way, that was who I became at that point. So I was sort of hired as a features editor at the Times Magazine. There was sort of 6 features editor at any given time..

The Tradeoffs of the Substack Hustle

"So as you mentioned in one of your newsletters. You're sort of in the creator economy. Now which is kind of funny 'cause from by one version of it you've been creator economy pretty much entire life things and sell them and and do different gigs. I'm interested in your thoughts about it. Because i on the one hand think the creator economy is something rob walker's but doing a most of his his life and on the other hand Seems seems like a very cynical way to talk about exploiting teenagers for a couple of minutes on tiktok or selling you know. we're crypto projects. But that idea that the internet can allow people to make a living doing stuff. They're interested in by reaching an audience. That couldn't reach on their own without the internet is pretty appealing. And i'm wondering. Do you think this is a real different version of what you've been doing in. The passers is sort of a natural progression in. This just goes along with book writing and teaching in magazine article. Writing that you've been doing pretty much all your life. Well i think what i of also. I've my context coming to this both as a some longtime freelance writer. But also someone who's written a number of stories. About like i wrote some of the earliest back kickstarter nazi and of written about youtubers. And and all that stuff so it's been Subject of interest to me professionally for a long time and everything he said is true and like it's sort of all of the above. It's always all the above there. Are there are real success stories so what it comes down to him when it comes down to me what i think is somewhat different is just the control you know when you are a freelance writer. Even if you have a call in stretches on my life where. I had him for the new york times and another one for the new york times magazine.

"Of one of the things robin i talk about in this discussion as well so less me talking and more of me and rob talking coming up right now. I'm here with rob walker. Who is one of my favorite authors. And i was just doing the math or the calendering and i think it's like two decades of following your writing and talking to you. Welcome up we've known each other for for just over twenty years. I believe that's right. I don't wanna go all the way back machine but you were the first people who sauce. I read your writing on the internet at slate dot com at the time and on a whim. I sent you an email based on something you wrote about and you responded and i was just thrilled that you could reach out to someone across the internet writing you like and they would respond to you so welcome. Thanks for having me and You know that was lesson learned from on my end to those. Like that's real interaction you know be receptive to your readers. You never know what'll happen and here. It is paying off two decades later on your show. That's that's not much. Pay off. Like i said rob is written for slate. Dot com the new york times and the publication formerly known as mediums technologies side marker marker marker business and technically still exists still exists gone through yet another medium pivot Done a ton of freelance writing books. You have your own sub stack. As does everyone these days and i wanna talk about. What's in the stack. And then we'll talk about sort of subset in general because of intense interest to to audience so it's the art of noticing which is based on a book. Why don't you tell us what that means. Warrants about yes so about a year and a half ago two years ago. I guess the book came out. The of no saying that started out. So i you know. This is a pretty standard issue move. Got a book coming out make your newsletter kind of about it. So you can promote your book and the book is Ways set up as a series of prompts and exercises to help people get better at noticing attention to kind of fighting back the attention economy type of book Very action oriented Take color walk things like this that we're gonna call it self help. Will you be offended. I will not be offended. It is kind of a. It's like a but it's like really hip self-help yeah. Well that's the best kind of self help self help with an ad the kind you could sell a lot of help with dada references and stuff like that sprinkled through it. So this is something. That's been a theme in. I think in my world for a bit right how you unplug yourself the screens and tech that we've been relentlessly covering not really thinking about what it means to be immersed in that and now there's sort of a general move to sort of pullback from that and i think that's sort of the zeitgeist you're you're engaged. Yeah that's exactly right and it evolved somewhat out of. I teach a little bit. I teach design classical point of view at the school visual arts. It was heavily influenced by that class because part of what i'm trying to do with students is convinced them that you know they're unique. Perspective matters and noticing things that are off. Kilter is a good thing. It's not a bad thing. I think that especially people in their twenties. Get a little hooked on the idea that like wolf. I'm talking about it but no one else's like it's not trending on twitter then maybe it doesn't matter and the core argument is no that matters more than anything. That's what makes you stand out. Different unique makes you a person. So that's what the book was. That was also kind of the premise of early internet. Thinking too is like you can follow your own little path and you'll find your insights maybe resonate with other people. The idea that you would try to find the thing everyone is talking about. Which is now the standard way of engaging. The internet was not the way we thought about it at the time. Yeah definitely and still. The internet is As we'll get to there's still plenty of stuff going on find your way and all that like in some ways all that promise came true but it just it just took a lot of like says a lot of unexpected turns that i that i do think are tougher in some ways for people who have grown up with it because they sort of it's part of their social life in a way that it wasn't for us and things like that and literally see. It's a way that i see. I'm doing spending a lot of tiktok time. Now clue valuable saying this is the thing that is on tiktok. it's popular tiktok. Thus i am talking about it and responding to it. Twitter trends is the same way and it just seems natural intuitive for lots of people when you and others are saying well. It doesn't have to be that way right and you know that brings us to fomo and all that kind of stuff. And that's all that stuff is real and there are logical reasons to be up on what everybody's up on but It becomes limiting at some point and a lot times the thing you're quote unquote missing out on is something that no one's gonna remember in two weeks anyway so you may as well just go ahead miss out on and then do something and find something or appreciate something or be something of your own original So that's the message of the book and then it became the message of the newsletter and the newsletter..

Tony Bobulinski, Hunter Biden and China

"The Wall Street Journal has a couple of reports detail in the rest of the sort of Bob Belinsky story one. The headlines has. Hunter Biden, Sex business partner alleges Father knew about venture, however. Corporate records reviewed by The Wall Street Journal show no record for Joe Biden. According to The Wall Street Journal. The Biden campaign denied that Joe had any involvement in this Chinese venture with this oil company or stood to gain by it. Belinsky said he was rankled by Joe Biden's public statements. He never discussed the international business activities of Hunter and other family members. He also cited nearly $5 million in payments. A Senate Republican report last month said that C E F C made $200 law firm has another reason to come forward. Jablonski said he took part in the meeting with Hunter, Joe Biden and Joe Biden's brother, James Biden in L. A in 2017 when they discussed the Biden family business plans with the Chinese, of which Joe Biden was plainly familiar, at least at a high level. Biden campaign spokesman didn't immediately respond to a question about the alleged meeting with Bob Belinsky, James Biden and attorney for Hunter. Biden didn't respond to requests for comment. And then they, of course issued from the campaign. This blanket denial. Text messages and emails related to the venture that were provided to the journal. Bye Bye. Belinsky, mainly from the spring and summer of 2017 Don't show either Hunter Biden or James Biden discussing a role for Joe Adventure. Mr Gillie are is one of the partners told the Journal. I'd like to clear up any speculation that former VP Biden was involved with the 2017 discussions about our potential business structure. I'm unaware of any involvement in any time of the former VP the activity in question it never delivered any project revenue. Which sounds like maybe just maybe the project was on the road, and then it sort of fell apart. Kimberley Strassel has report over The Wall Street Journal on this She says. That Bible in skis text message just show he was recruited for the project by that James Gillies. Our character, 100 associate, Delia explains in December 2015 text, there will be a deal between the Chinese and what one of the most prominent families from the United States a month later he introduces Rob Walker, also a partner of Biden in March, 2016 Gilyard told Bob Belinsky, the Chinese entity was C E F C Which was shaping up to be the Goldmans of China. Meeting Goldman Sachs. Earlier promise that's a month to develop the terms of the deal with Hunter at this point, Joe Biden, of course, was still vice president. Is the deal began to take shape in 2017 by Belinsky began to question 100 would contribute. Besides his name and worried he was quote kicked out of the U. S Navy for cocaine use. Killer acknowledged skill sets it missing and observed that Hunter has a few demons. He explained that in brand 100 is imperative, but right now he's not essential for adding input. Hunter was hardly visible through most of the work until final negotiations ramped up in mid May, he brought in his uncle Jim Biden for a steak hunter in Texan emails wanted offices in three U. S. Cities, significant travel budgets of statement for Jim a job for an assistant and more frequent distributions of any gains. And, of course, he explained, he wanted a hell of a lot more than 100 $50,000 per year because his ex wife would nearly take all of it. Hunter repeatedly made clear that his contribution was his name. He railed at Bob Belinsky that the CFC heads are quote coming to be my partner to be partners with the Bidens even remind him that in this instance only one player holds the Trump card in its me may not be fair, but it's the reality because I'm the only one putting on and putting an entire family legacy on the line. Abiding claims he never discussed his son's business. But of course there was that made 2017 expectations letter, including that 10% for quote unquote, the big guy in one text, 100 said, quote my chairman given emphatic, no toe a version of the deal. Bye. Belinsky suggested that the chairman referred to Joe Biden. Deal fell through on the Chinese and in the summer of 2017. So is it possible that Hunter was freelancing? He was going around that that Joe had spent years basically patting me on the head telling me to go pick up bags of cash if you could help him And then now Joe's out of office and 100 want help Mount. He was freelancing and every so often you'd run something my job. Certainly possible certainly plausible. Is it true that Joe Biden while he was VP? Probably knew what Hunter was up to. Yeah, that is, that is probably true. Okay, So here's the problem. Nobody. The media wants to talk about this story at all. They don't find it interesting or fascinating at all that you're Biden has throughout his career engaged in sort of the low level corruption that many public officials do. Reckoning, sweetheart mortgages and that sort of thing. Well, or at least a sweetheart land deal from from people who are interested in some of the legislation on the table when he was in the Senate. And NPR put out an actual statement before the Nile before the denial from the Biden campaign. Here's what NPR's public editor said. Quote. We don't want to waste our time on stories that are not really stories. We don't want to waste listeners and readers time on stories that are just pure distraction. As unbelievable that is a taxpayer funded journalistic institution, openly declaring that they simply will not engage, but they're not interested whatsoever in the story preemptively. To the media. I mean, so all this is the lead up to their bait, right? The media are obviously and clearly on the side of Joe Biden, which means that the debate the stakes are really high. Because now this is basically the last chance. For Trump to set the table for Trump to change the topic from Trump to shifted course of the race. The members of the media again. It wasn't just NPR. Many members of the media were over and over, declaring that the hunter by the story was not, in fact a story. They kept a clean without any evidence whatsoever that it was Russian disinformation.

"This sounds like direct involvement in them. That's a blatant line when he states that that is a blatant line, and Hunter introduced me as this is Tony, Dad, the individual I told you about that's helping us with the business that we're working on and the Chinese in that email, there's a statement where they go through the equity. Jim Violence referenced as 10% doesn't say Biden, Issa's Jim and then it has 10% for the big guy held by H 1000% sit here and know that the big guy is referencing Joe Biden. When I saw Adam Schiff go on record talking about Russian disinformation after this email had been posted online by the New York Post and remember that email was to me. From James Deal. You're right. It wasn't You know, I wasn't blind Carbon or C seat on that. It was to me stating that I was going to be the CEO of this enterprise. I was at the end of my rope. And so I crawled Rob Walker and I told him that if that statement isn't retracted by a congressman Schiff by midnight on Sunday that I was going on record, and I was disclosing all the facts to the American government to the American citizen in the world, I was hoping the binds would do the right thing. Or shift would retract his statement. But I could not allow another minute another hour or day from my family's name to be associate er or muddied up around Russian disinformation. So even as I sit here today, I would ask the bind family to come on record and stop using my name or associating it with Russian disinformation. It's absolutely disgusting. And I remember looking at Jim buying and saying, How are you guys getting away with this? Like, Aren't you concerned? He saw that he looked at me and he laughed a little bit and said, Plausible deniability. He said that out loud. Yes, he said it directly to me. Right. He had a break All of the Tony Baba Linsky all.

"Drew here on these news talking and 11 31 035 Before we get to the phone calls. Here's another clip. Tony Bo Belinsky talking about the Chinese partners in the firm that he was associated with the Biden family and the money that was coming in. PFC. Never viewed me. I'm insignificant and a relevant this discussion. To them. It was always the buying family. It wasn't Hunter by it wasn't Jim Bind. It was the Biden family who's obviously lead and operated by Joe Biden and in a document that you guys have and I think been provided to the world. The Chinese reference that because of their trust in the buying family, the chairman and director saying Are excited about moving forward in this and in that document, they reference Loaning $5 million to the B D family right, the BT family is the buying family. And notice. They didn't say we're learning that money to Oneida Holdings or we're loaning that money to Tony Baba Linsky or loaning that money to James Gil. You rob Walker. They once again not a document generated by me a document in generated by CSC that they're loaning that money to the Biden family. What are the implications of this going forward if Joe Biden is elected president, which could very well happen? How does this constrain his ability to deal with China? You asking for my personal and I'm asking for your opinion as someone who's worked with the Chinese. So I think Joe Biden and the biting family or compromised Obviously, I've referenced. They held a clearance. You're briefed on compromise. And you know who you're able to talk with, and deal and do business with, and I just don't see given the history here in the facts. How Joe can't be influenced in some manner based on the history that they have, where, here with CFC and stuff like that, so as a citizen and an American taxpayer, I'm very, very concerned. With the last caller heard that he didn't know a lot about this story apparently hasn't spent a lot of time looking into it right now. I would hope you would be concerned, too. I think Jerry's of a lost cause at this point, if you're choosing between the lesser of two evils, and you think that Joe Biden is the better choice. I can't. I can't help you. You obviously do not care who's actually sitting in the White House that or, you know, they've already sent their voted. And now they just have to figure out a way to rationalize that. They don't feel stupid. Yeah, yeah. Anthony in ST Paul. Good morning. Morning. One thing that just blows my mind is out. People can still come out and say that they think Trump is compromised to these countries that he's almost been waging war with, like we had. Gigantic trade war with China. All these sanctions on all these countries that everybody's saying he's compromised too, so I don't get it. What you trying to trying to say is all for show and that When you win re election that it's all going to go away. Like we already know about the Chinese. They could go. There was never a secret. Right? I don't I just I don't see the point. That's a faction on its own, because the violins were clearly profiting from the country. So and I don't know what these other two guys talking about. They're just not paying attention. But like you said. Nobody is going to be this dinner is a lesson with a Democrat. I Yeah. I don't know if they're not paying attention, or if they're just not paying attention to the right outlets. I mean, keep in mind. This is a story that has been a muzzled by a lot of outlets. If you're if you're not paying attention to, you know, Fox News and only certain programs on Fox News or O N, or, You know, some of the right leaning conservative opinion websites. You probably don't know. Don't know much, if anything about this story. I want to play this one clip before we go back to more phone calls here. This was the audio clip. So Rob Walker was the spouse of Jill Biden's former top personal White House aide. And so he moved. Alinsky was having a conversation with Rob Walker about coming forward with all this information that he had, and Brunelleschi even said last night that he's got what he has Navy seals that are protecting his family right now. I mean he's legitimately and he should be legitimately concerned for his own safety and the safety of his family. But listen to this. I'm not trying to cause any harm to anyone in this situation, let alone Rob Walker and his family. James Gilyard and his family, But basically Rob's position was if you go on record with all these facts, you'll bury all of us if he doesn't come out on record. I am providing the founding. You're just just very all of this man was very all of us, Um I was focused on pushing these guys to do the right thing to demonstrate an ounce of integrity in front of the American people. They all know the facts. I live the facts and luckily for the American people, all the facts are extremely well documented. Let's go to Michael in Bloomington. Your morning, guys. Why? Why did they wait so long to come out? That's all suspicious of if he talking about integrity? What? Why is he involved with the Abides to begin with. That's that's my only suspicion. Well, yeah, I don't know the answer to that. I obviously can't read the guy's mind. But he did say a couple times in the interview last night that he was he was giving them the opportunity to come out and do the right thing. And it was when his name started coming up and getting mentioned as a Russian asset. That's when he need felt like he needed to speak. Maybe at one time. Yes. Yeah, he was. Yeah, he wasn't that he was in the military. Troubles me that he was working with the bikes again. We'll know And I think I think what part of what's getting lost in the haze of all this is the timeline of how this stuff to win went down. It's a lot of the stuff is fairly recent and into a sort of deaf tail off of what Drew said in my understanding and answering and answering. Your question is that he was coming forward, and he was asking the individuals and the partners that he had. To do the right thing and come forward with this. And when the hunter Biden laptop story dropped And that those details started to come out. He began to personally get concerned that he was no longer able to stay silent anymore. He'd given them the chance. And when Joe Biden continued So lie to the public about how he did not have any conversations or business dealings with Hunter Biden. That's when he was like, I can't. I can't. I have to protect my own reputation. I can't sit back anymore and you've got to imagine, ma'am. The guy had to be fearful for his life, and his family. He has very still is a successful life. He has a career like You said in the interview. There wasn't something that he wanted to do. On top of the fact he's also a Democrat. There was probably a part of him. He was pushed to the point where it's like, I cannot stay silent any longer when members of Congress are going on national TV and calling you a Russian asset or Russian disinformation. Shit..

There's no question that H stands for Hunter. Big guy for his father, Joe Biden. So 10 per cent. In fact, Hunter often referred to his father's The big guy for my chairman. On numerous occasions. It was made clear to me that Joe Biden's involvement was not to be mentioned in writing, but only face to face. And there is a document that shows you've got H. Hunter. You got big guy also known as the chairman to Hunter, using code words because you don't want to have his name and writing and 10% stepped aside for big guy. That's Joe Biden 10% of those Chinese business deal with, according to the documentation here, the communications Include Chinese intelligence officers. No problem.

"Step one start defending the quality of time, so many workplaces today seem obsessed with getting as many hours as possible out of their employees, sixty hours, eighty hours extreme cases, even hundred hours, that's simply unnecessary. It's counterproductive. It doesn't result in good diligent careful work that most creative industries really need forty hours enough, forty hours plenty. So instead of trying to stretch out the time trying to protect the time that's already there. Protecting those forty hours. Stop squandering them on all the stuff that puncture today in turn workday into series of moments. That means fewer meetings. Aid means you stop sharing to counter sister. So easy to serve other people's time. You should be working diligently to ensure that people can get three four five hours of uninterrupted time where no one is bothering them, and they can dive deep and go the distance on the work that they have to do it. Simply doesn't work to squeeze the lemon for every last drop. Step two and related to step one. Don't celebrate workaholics. Don't go out of your way to call attention to people who pulled an old nighter who state during the weekend who've quote, unquote sacrificed for the company or even worse as some companies do sacrifice for the family. The is not a family and for the company to ask sort of sacrifices of their employees. As though the word family is quite frankly. Disgusting it doesn't lead to a calm workplace. Would you should? Be celebrating stead is people who get their work done within the forty hours within normal hours. The people who are wrapped up and ready to go by five o'clock step three get rid of dread lines. Dread lines is the kind of deadlines that we all hate the idea of fix cope fixed amount of time fixed resources that just don't add up. You can't square the triangle as it were. It's fine to have an intention. It's fine to have an outline of what you think something's going to be your should be. But you have to leave the details for the people who are actually doing to work as they're filling in to do the work step four compromise on quality.

"More fun fun. I don't know. What's your upgrade? So I have long been a fan of Instagram. I like Instagram the most of any of this -ocial media. I've decided it's the least damaging to my psyche. Unless it's the middle of the winter, and it's really cold out. And everybody's kind of tropical island vacation. And I'm stuck here that I have to stop looking at it. But lately, I've been using it more as a reference than using it as sort of social media. So I've been following a lot of accounts of two things that I'm particularly interested in right now one of them is artists and the other is this is weird. But the who is mobility so people who do kind of mobility drills and flexibility because I'm becoming increasingly stiff and working in an office sitting all the time. My hips are becoming something that. Does not normal. So I've been working a lot of mobility's. So now, I've been creating on Instagram these collections of the mobility posts that I found the most useful and the artists who really inspiring me 'cause I'm trying to get our practice back back back on and thinking that other ways to use it like recipes. Parenting tips, you know, like in things inspirational quotes stuff when I'm really feeling down. Do I need like a collection of that stuff? It's almost like I'm using Instagram is like what I used to use Pinterest for. But I don't know like interest, I like Instagram more. So that's what I'm using now.

"I'm leading this organization. I'm the CEO of a company and yet there our relationship, they AmEx that are happening between me and people on my team that are not going well for me. And I know that because there have been some people who have been willing to tell the truth directly to me, or I sense it because things are just not going the way that I know they need to go, especially if I want to take this company to the next level. Do they come in and sit down in your office? Or are you sitting down in their office? Like, what's the setting like I come to them because I wanna see people in their natural environment. I wanna see what their day is like I wanna see how they're interacting with people. There's so many details that I pick up just by watching how somebody moves how somebody sits with me how people interact with them when they're walking down the hallway. So there's a lot of rich data there. So you're really immersing yourself in their sounds. Yeah. Yeah. The question that I'm dying to ask you because I'm pretty certain the answer's going to be fascinating is what are the differences? You see as far as the challenges that your clients have between men and women. Oh, that's a great question. Well, I might choose to say something about similarities, but since you asked about differences, I will start there. So men who I'm coaching often come with issues about lack of trust team people. Don't trust the person they've made decisions without getting people's input. And it really hurts people. And they just don't trust the leader. Other times, it's anger issues. So people who typically man who are just openly angry and end have no trouble showing their anger in in just the most stereotypically horrible ways. Like what you would see on a movie screen. So helping the leader learn how to manage the anger and also some often helping the other people around that leader learn how to manage when the person gets angry, and then with women, you know, what I noticed is. They're getting dinged on every side. I've literally collected feedback three sixty feedback on behalf of a woman leader where people said she works too, hard and. But we know she doesn't have the resources that she needs to do job. Well, and you know, she's taking her phone into the bathroom with her. She's running around all the time. She's never somewhere. We can never find her. Her people are stretched too thin. And so then we'll deliver this feedback to her. And then also after that to her boss, and I'll say to the boss, so. What do you make of this? And she'll you know, she's been trying to get him to say that he he'll provide more people more resources for her more money more more people, and he just hasn't done it. And in the face of this data hill say she really needs to stop being so busy like no acknowledgement that she's struggling in the context of a place where she's been asking for resources in not getting them. So that has been among the more painful experiences that I've had as coaches to watch that interaction unfold, I will say in particular example, that I just described we were able to make a difference. So it was so glaringly obvious that the feedback of she's too busy. And her team is stretched too thin was not just about her lack of ability as a manager or as leader. But really was about a very. Real resource problem. And she and I were able to brainstorm some solutions and bring them to her manager in a way that she had not been able to do before in. So. You know, so sometimes issues like that. And so that that being particular to one particular client is that something that you see often with women that they're not being supported in and that is contributing to their difficulties with their leadership role. Yes, and combined with that is a belief that maybe so long standing and internalized inside of the female leader of. I should be able to do this without the resources. I've been asking him not getting them. So I should be able to do it and therefore just running themselves ragged trying to figure out a way to do it..

"But say like, listen, you know, what you did there was problematic for this reason. And and explain like you made you may not have even meant that. But here's how it came across. And I and I wouldn't say if I were actually doing this. I would not say like there's a difference between here's how here's how it came across to me. And here's how it came across like just make that fact like this is how you're coming across. It's not about my interpreting you it's about your behavior, and I'm doing you favor by kind of bringing it up. So that you can make your point and let you concede if they had a point to make then you can concede whether they you know. Like, yeah. I see what you meant about the Penske file or whatever. But you know, there are other ways you could do that without without an tag ising, a colleague is trying to help you have you ever gotten a letter from somebody talking about their boss, and you think oh, you're the problem. Oh, yeah. I think that's probably the majority of the time, isn't it? I don't know if it's the majority, but but the Tel is the is the is just you know, when you open the Email by looking at how long it is the person if it's their fault, then they have this Leauge litany of like, and Ben she did this and she did that. And my response was perfectly just totally unreasonably. She had this other just goes on and on. It's like, well, you're crazy. And I'm reading this during meeting his yelling at me right now. This is what I'm talking about. God when whenever there's a saga. It's there's it's your fault. Is that the rule it's pretty much the rule? It's pretty much the rule where does it boss turn to for support? Especially if you're the I don't know, you're the CEO of the company or you're the founder of the company, and you know, how the boss yourself or you don't have a particularly sympathetic boss. You know, it seems like those would be the people who really need an advice columnists to help them. Yeah. On the other hand, though, think about how much advice is actually it's may not be in the form of a column, but all the books that are written that are for like for the person who is in charge. You know from the point of the person who you have to be in charge. Here's how you can be. You know, Jack Welsh or whatever there's a lot of Britain for that person. There's very little written in that world for the middle manager like the there's a sort of a built in assumption. That will what you really want to do is be the next Steve Jobs or something and a lot of people don't. And we can all do that. And there's there's a real kind of lack of cultural appreciation for the person in the middle. That's the person who I sort of feel the most sympathy for because I think that meets your definition like that. Yeah. That that person needs advice to and where do they turn, you know, they can turn to an advice columnist, but, but it's it's it's harder for them because they have a more limited set of peers, and they've been doing these these two, you know, you're in charge of some people in somebody's in charge of you. And that that's a tough place to be. But it's also the most common place to be. So before we let you go. Tell us about the human resource column it's coming to life hacker in mid February. And what sort of questions are you looking for? And then tell us how people can submit questions. So it is a. You know, water cooler therapy column is how I think of it which is meaning come one come all in terms of whatever kind of workplace dilemma, you might be facing. Whether it's whether it's the bothersome person cubicle next to you, or whether it's the boss, who's stymying your career, or whether it's, you know, coping with burn out, or, you know, anything the kind of stuff that you would just ask a colleague about or or or whatever. But you when you just need a fresh perspective because that's really the essence of advice calms is just giving someone a fresh disinterested perspective. Right. And that's all I try to do. So any kind of questions like that that are related to work in any way whatsoever. Human resource at life. Hacker dot com. Awesome. Thank you so much. Thank you so much, rob. Thank you.

"And you know, and my advice to people to managers as often don't be such a baby like people want. They find it very uncomfortable to give feedback that is anything other than sort of generically blandly, positive, right? And it doesn't mean that you have to be. Obviously, there's another sub category of boss. It's very good at giving really jerky mean critical feedback and yelling at you. But that's not really productive either. But just in general, like better communication, skills and being honest, but not mean as really valuable and really hard and take some practice and. Yeah, receiving feedback is also. Yes, it is hard because we all tend to get defensive. And maybe there could be I don't know how you teach the skill of receiving feedback. But one of the reasons receiving feedback so hard is because is because so much feedback is so poorly delivered. That's right. We talk about different techniques around giving feedback. Somebody on our team was talking about the compliment sandwich. Or maybe it was somebody in HR who is talking about this with me about how and I'm not sure how I feel about this. The idea of like, you know, you give some positive feedback on either side as the bun, and then the meat of the sandwich is the real criticism. And I don't know if that makes it go down easier. I don't know if that fools anybody. But I guess if you're particularly death you can. Tell us what you're doing a great job you have to stop being late. And I still love you argue about whether this is a good technique or not. And because you know, the one of the risks is that like the fade don't hear the part in the middle, and they just walk away with the to complement sides of it. And you know, totally missed actual criticism. And that it's a little bit too much to make the person giving the feedback feel better and which things feed on themselves. Like that you end up emphasized, really emphasizing the m the good things and kind of just blowing past the problem. Yeah. That that's something that, you know, I think about a lot. And when I have to give feedback. What's been helpful? For me is thinking not about how you know how uncomfortable. It is to have to criticize somebody else. You know, who am I to criticize you, I'm not perfecting? If you come from that perspective and. You over identify with the the feeling of having been given feedback in an inelegant way. Then that sort of Khun keep you from actually delivering the constructive feedback. As you said what I try to do is think about how I can help starting there and going in thinking like how can I help this person be better? And how can I like have them helped me figure out what the solution is? I think thinking about it this way. And this is kind of what the spirit of the compliments, which is in a way is it's like you want to deliver the feedback. But you wanna contextualized it in a way that makes it clear that I'm not just here to beat you up. I would say so that's where I sort of come down in the compensation thing is if it makes you if using technique like that will get you to actually deal with the problem in a straightforward way instead of kicking the can down the road indefinitely than than do it. Because the biggest problem is just letting things sit and and being afraid to confront them..
