"Content on internet television, also matters, where the country you're from, if they dubbed English language programming than those people aren't as good at English as people where they do not dub programming. Right. And they don't dub it and Scandinavia. Whereas in places like Spain and Germany and. Italy. And you can hear it in the accent of the people when they speak English because people who have access to the original, they speak, it fluently and with very little accent, quite often, but I slammed it is been a very humbling experience. Because I'm I suppose I was seventeen eighteen nineteen when I was getting into German, and Russian, you know, you've got this moist little sponge in your cranium at that point. And now it's, you know, thirty years later. It's not the same it's bit more leathery. Yeah. Not as malleable porous less porous. Yeah. I agree with you. Like I find myself quite resistant to all sorts of bits of stupid stuff that my children, bring back with them, linguistically. But then sometimes, I think, well, maybe this is just a bit like people complaining that high streets are all looking the same. You know, it's just a factor of globalism and actually you've got doesn't mean we can't complain about it. I. But I suppose the thing is that maybe you have to give up certain things. Yes, it would be nice. If you could keep absolutely everything about the old world that was great. But actually, the more important thing, isn't it is to get rid of the things that were shit and to try and create a world. That's better for more people, and maybe the price you pay for that is some of those beautiful high streets that the character of them has gone, and maybe some of those beautiful bits of language now been sacrificed because it's easier for everyone to understand each other, and you know what I mean. Yeah, I don't like it. I'm gonna continue to complain about it. Let me show you what I've got on this hard-right that is that is an amazing gift at thank, you know, toll, and you would have seen a lot of these, but some of the light grey gardens.

"I mean, you didn't answer my questions. My final question to, you know, don't I hope not? I hope this is not that just some bows. No, no, no. Because I really have to change gears to do that. And this was something that was very very close to my. Of me trying to understand what it's like to be alive. And I think I said what I wanted to say when he says when I'm painting, I stopped thinking. I like to do that. I like to stop thinking. And and I guess when I'm painting. I do stop thinking. And maybe when we're making a movie we've stopped thinking also at the moment, we can stop thinking when we can just let something happen. And I think that what you can see in the movie is how we really depend on. I mean, what William did how we could access that place and do what he did how Oscar mas- Mickelson. I mean, these people. Who knows where it comes from? I mean mas- is a dancer. I mean, Chris walk and is a great friend of mine. I mean guy could read the telephone book, and it's interesting, but but they can do something that I can't do. And when I was a painter. Longtime ago, and I had comments about movies. Nobody listened to me. But being the director of the actors, listen to you. So I started to I and the thing about John Michel Basquiat? I think I probably did it for the same reason. Because. I hated Robert Hughes saying that he was he was you're the Eddie Murphy of the art world and all of this abuse that he took really and I thought okay, oh at the John Michel to give him. The respect.

"I can ask Tom have a plan. This gets back to not asking for feedback for everything. Okay. But it is a way that you can do it. So I when we started when we started I wanted you to think about this. And I don't want you to stop thinking about it. As a leader. I am whatever I would not ask you to do something. I haven't done myself. Right. I will just share mine, and it a little different than I, you know, I am as a leader. It's not about me. It's about what we can accomplish together. I'm comfortable not being the expert and trust and empower those that I lied. I'm approachable open-minded collaborative and decisive. I challenge the status quo and always look for ways to do things better. I care about everyone. I lead and I will help them develop and grow. I lead, by example. And I'll always do what's right? That is far different than a list of strengths that. I. I often get when I talk to leaders what I bring to the table put some meat around. It put some thought into it. It took me a long time to get to this stage. And it takes time change. It words means something share it with somebody that you trust. And stays this me. And you know, what it serves is that that foundation when things are going rough. And you say, okay, this is who I am. And this is where I gotta make a hard decision. I'm going to do what's right? And I'm going to do it. And it takes a lot of work to get there. If I can show you all the things I I won't. But in my how I got there things that I kind of kept close to me as a leader my values we written down. I had them my pivotal moments in my career things I learned from people that helped me quotes that keeps me grounded, right? That keeps me centered things I've learned about leadership maxims or principles that I keep close. And then ultimately ends up in leadership statement, a leadership narrative something like that that helps you become who you make sure you are aligned with who you are. What we've talked about the night, we've continued this knowing yourself as a continuous process. Think about what's in your DA. We talked blurry spots blind spots you can own feedback. Obstacles we talked about vulnerability authentic vulnerability. We talk about building confidence keeps you centered. And it's a start point to being a great leader with this series is about. On your leadership journey make time the know yourself. You started tonight keep it going, right? It doesn't stop. I haven't stopped. Keep it going. We're going to go to a in a few minutes. And we'll we can we can talk about that. But it's been my pleasure to be here with you tonight..

"What matters. Yeah. Okay. That's part of it. That's part of it. But the other part is higher. We'd go in in an organization, you know, there's just the higher we go. We tend to get less feedback from the organization. Oh, cody. You're too busy. I can't people perceive that you're too busy to get feedback. Right. But we also start to stop. We stop asking for feedback. Oh, I've started to rise. What's worked for me and continues to work? I get a little complacent. I don't ask for pay attention as much to an ask for feedback. So it's just a phenomenal CEO CEO disease is just the fact that you start to get ice related the higher, you go, and all of a sudden, you just not getting feedback and you stop asking for it. So you'll know you have this you'll know the symptoms of if you can't remember the last time you ask for feedback or the last time somebody gave you feedback just sort of unsolicited. Okay. So the organization is the other one, you know, when you first. I'm in and organization, you tend to get a lot of feedback right early on your career, and you have to you own feedback. You won't it to a large degree. If you keep asking for the last one of the obstacles when it comes to feedback and these all relate to how well we understand ourselves is emotions, right? Emotions of the other ones are a little trickier. You know, when we deal with the motions, and we were asking for feedback from others. We're asking for other people's perspectives. Right. It doesn't mean they're right. I just it's just their perspective. But we ask for it. So we have these inputs coming in. But we're wired to scan for threats fighter flight, right and feedback when it comes in when it says, you know, when there's a weakness or you didn't do something as well. It lights up our system about threats scan about what the feedback is. And what that does. Is it starts to get our emotions come into play. We get dismissive. We get defensive we get angry. We get shocked. Right. All these things that try to protect us. And what happens is we get that reaction where we start to react rationalize feedback that came in that said, Bob, you're, you know, you're too quiet in meetings, or whatever we rationalize why we are at cetera..

"It probably would have caught up with him somewhere along the line. That's from the book true north by Bill, George. It's a really good book. But that's a great example of a blind spot. Blurry spots. I will I'll tell you one of mine mid career. Sixteen seventeen years or so in into the army, I go in for a performance review been doing fine. Everything was fine. It happened to be in the Pentagon or I was working at the time. And my boss calls me in and he says. He says he's not behind his desk to move away from the from the from behind his desk, and we go to sort of the seating area. And he says here's your performance evaluation. You know, what it says? So forget it. It's good. Okay. I didn't know what it said. But okay, he says it's good don't worry about what I wanna talk to you about is your potential, and he says, Bob you've got a lot of potential to go higher to lead higher other organizations in the army. But I wanna tell you something he goes, I kinda term you. I kind of have this this label. He says, I kind of think of you as this quiet professional, and I said, okay, quiet professional, and he says, you know, when you're in meetings with us, and he was he was a general at the time. And he says, you know, when you say something you add value helped me connect dots. But then I also notice you're you're not really active in bigger meetings with other other folks high-powered folks in the room, and I said, well, I'm not a big talker. And he goes, but he goes look you helped me connect dots. Whenever you talk. And he says this is something that is going to you're going to need to work on the higher you go. Now, it wasn't that. I was afraid to talk. But it was about executive presence. Right. I felt like I was in the room. It was their thing. You know, whatever it was. But I knew it myself. I knew I tended to be quiet person, quiet, quiet guy in those settings. And that was something I had to work out work on. But he put it on the table. He called it out. And it was something that caught me mid-career that helped me get better the further I went and something I had to work that's glory. Spot blurry spots and blind spots. They things we need to work. So as a leader, Tim seems to do a lot of tasks or projects himself, what would you label a blind spot? If if this was Tim he does a lot of things himself takes on. He's a leader. Tim is a leader. But he does a lot of tasks or projects himself. What might what might Tim's blind spot? The robert. Trust delegation. Who's got something else in the back? Okay. Right. Control three, right? What else? Doesn't know how to ask for help. Doesn't know how to gala gate might be a perfectionist, right? Everything's gotta beat. Nobody can do it any better than him. This often happens when what you coming out of a functional functional leadership role where you are the expert on a lot of things, and then you become a general management type role. And you don't have to be the expert, and you have to get things done through other people. Okay. Tim's. That's tim's. Good. Lisa as a leader.

"Right. Right. So the daft, right? You do adapted. Look at the different teams. One team was sort of tired was a regional team very had been had been run hard, very very tired. And they just needed a little bit more direction. Right. But I figured that out. And I help figure out how to get them in that direction. But as you'll see teams are very important to me, and that's what I emphasized, and it's just, but they still got the same the same the same Bob, then another two other positions in the Pentagon different vastly different positions. One team. Superior super high performing team could've was pretty much on autopilot. But I had to figure out what's going to help take them, and what my role might be and taking them to the next level. And then my last job with a job with a ton of stakeholders, but the point is, you know. Sort of just knowing yourself, and what you've been being comfortable in different environments is what this is about. And as you rise, you're going to you're not going to it's probably going to go vertically, maybe a little sideways different organizations. It's about confidence. And I think that's very very important. Thanks for the question. That was great. So here's the problem as we think about this. Right. So that was all the good stuff. That was easy stuff. Bob right now. Here's here's sort of the stuff some research out there toseh- uric. I don't know if you've read the book inside or whatever or go to Harvard Business Review article by tasha, you're she's a researcher lot of self awareness recently is that ninety five percent of us really think that we're self-aware ninety five percent think we're self-aware ten to fifteen percent are actually self aware that leaves a ton ton of room for eyars mistakes. And everything else has anybody read this this article or anything, so this is a little scary. Because this sets you up for is leader is sets the conditions to have, you know, career, you know, forks in the road derailments, go left, right. Not going higher. It also sets the sets the. Missions for blind spots or blurry spots. Are we familiar with blind spots that we heard the term blind spot right things? We don't know. But others do about us. It can be gaps and weaknesses, but I also want to identify let you know that it could be hidden strengths that. We don't know. Right. It could be a strength that we don't know. But primarily when we think blindspot we think of something that's going to cause us causes a problem friction point as a leader so gaps and weaknesses. But I also think there's something out there called blurry spots. And I think these are different. But they're they can be just as dangerous. A blurry spot would be things we know about ourselves. Others might know it also, but we don't address those. But we don't address though, so blind spots and blurry spots. Now. Look to be honest. They run they run the gamut from being something that may never never ever derail us, but they could be very benign. But over time they can become very very catastrophic. They can definitely take a career and a leadership track off balance. So that's why we gotta worry about those. And that's where self-awareness comes in comes into play. So here's an example of a blind spot. Talk about David David's perspective of himself is somebody named David. No. David's perspective, David's blindspot, hard, working high energy results oriented young executive on his way up in an organization. Here's how is pure sign. His colleagues perspectives of David intimidating aggressive self serving two different viewpoints. His self perspective. Others he goes in for a performance review from his boss and David gets this. David your colleagues, don't trust you. And it's like getting hit with a two by four. It's his wakeup call. He doesn't see it coming his boss delivered it at least in that way. But you know, had the candor deliver it to him. It was his wakeup call. And he changed. This David is David Patrick former Cosio, I think Charles Schwab. So this was early in his career, and he was able to correct that blindspot go back talk to colleagues say I got some problems. I need to work on helped me get better. But he didn't see it. Come. And he was not self aware if he hadn't had that wakeup call..

"That's what goes through our head. Now that was a little bit much. But the point is to leaders showed up to my. Bosses that I had the next one and the second one higher, and they said just relax shake it off. Don't worry about it. You're good officer go back figure it out and you'll be fine. And that stuck with me the rest of my career. That's the kind of experience in terms of failure, right then and they're learning from it. And how did I so whenever I had folks that worked for me and they failed. You know? I'm there that that experience comes into play. How about? Okay. I'm going to try to do this to handed. Okay. So we talked about experiences how about role models who are some of the role models that you have worked for or seen or, you know, have been around that left us something that shaped who you are is a leader. I can think of several of mine. Ed, again, we'll call them Ed because his name was. He was my first boss, and he took me out in Kentucky. When I was very young second Lieutenant and he would find time maybe once a quarter. Maybe once every six months, we would just find time on our calendar. He would take me out we go out in the Kentucky countryside. And he would just say, hey, let's just go talk. We'd take our maps. And he would say, hey, look, if you had to defend this area of terrain, or if you had to take a tack this way, or whatever he would say, how would you do it, and we just had conversations, and he would sit and we just had a conversation about it. But what he was really doing in terms of an experience in terms of a leader that shape help shape me he was investing in me already in my potential. He was helping me to get prepared for the next level of leadership that I was going to and he took the time to do it that shaped a lot of how I operate as a leader. And so. These are the kind of things you need to think about and put all together and just sort of let rattle around in your head a little bit. When you try to play with this statement, which will stay with you for a long time because I'll keep repeating repeating it. But as a leader, I am finish the state. So what's in your DNA? Why do I think this is important? So knowing yourself getting really understanding who you are as a leader. I think is important because it's foundational. It's your foundation is a leader. It makes you different from her from him. What makes you different? And when you're getting pulled in many, many different directions as all of us do right now leading in on certainty. Right volatile uncertain times when our time is precious and you're getting pulled in so many different ways. What is it that you what your bedrock? What's your foundation leisure? That keeps you and your team pointed in the right direction. That's one part second part is confidence. If you really know yourself as a leader. You're totally confident in what you are bringing to whatever organization you're leading right and the higher you go the less of an expert. You are right. I mean, you're not you're going. Transition from being functional experts, and then general management and then going up, but the leader in you doesn't change the I think I had probably over thirty years somewhere around nineteen or twenty different leadership positions some of those were on staffs cetera. But you're always leading something it's the same guy that showed up every time one of those things, and I can tell you that the last three positions that I had you know, they were all totally different organizations. And I was you know, I wasn't the expert in any one of them. They were all vastly different same leader that shows up and gives you the confidence to lead. Yeah..

"So tonight what I thought when I talked with Travis and others about what might be a relevant topic. I thought we would talk about really understanding yourself as a leader. So that's where we're going to go tonight. So what's my story? So I started my first job that I can remember or actually got paid for you know, for working with Mayflower movers in upstate New York. Hudson valley area I worked in the moving company. Anybody worked for a moving company ever in their life. Yeah. Who was it? Beacon. Okay. Yeah. Military division. Very good. We need to talk. Okay. Any I worked for many flower movers going through college summers. And all that was a great job. And if you work for moving companies like, you know, right you load unload pack, your part of a team. And eventually if you're on a team who's the leader of a crew that goes out, usually the the driver, right? The driver is the leader. So what do you want to become you want to become the driver? Right. I became I worked my way up. I got my permit to drive one of these things in upstate New York. And I was really really good at driving forward. And the emphasize that forward and straight. I was good. Okay. Backing up. Is a whole nother skill set. Okay. And I used to get some pretty good feedback in the raw as I was safe from the team about my skills of backing up truck, the high adventure of backing up, and they say New York City, whatever backup, Bob, I think was my name anyhow so fast forward career change, not a Bagger change. I went into the army nineteen eighty six eighty five eighty six ROTC somewhere around there going through college. And I did go into the army for a full career, which like many of you. I did not know that I would stay for a full career. Well, my point here is is that when I joined the army, I joined the organization that was really really focused on leader development and cared about making leader the best leaders. You can't have at all levels. It was embedded in the organizational fraying fabric of the army and all the other services as well. I'm in it at the time and a young second Lieutenant and then somewhere down the road near. Thirty years, but what's important about this is I got to know myself as a leader, you know, very very young in my early in my career. No, what sort of made me tick how I operated to put it in technological thing. My operating system. What worked for me? How did I do that? We used to have we had a drill in. We had one of our assignments we had to do was write our own leadership philosophy early on. Right. Go inside write it down. Not just a list of strengths. But really what it is it that you bring to the table as a leader. And that stuck with me for my entire career. And I never stopped thinking about it. And I don't think the great leaders ever stop thinking about it. And that's what I want to talk about tonight is really no one yourself and not just a list of strengths that you bring the table. But really what makes you operate? And how do you? How do you? How do you operate on a day to day business? And I know for a fact if I didn't know that..

"What's the difference in a good question in a great question, a great question is something that stands test of time for history. A great question pushes the ball forward on an issue. A great question shakes the foundations of the room because you, you recognize when you hear it and hear the answer that I think there's a clarity. Yes. A great question. And is why did you do x. sometime have to be specific you acid. Sometimes you have to be able to to frame a question where he can't just say yes or no, he or she gets under at you want a thoughtful ants. You don't want this. This prepackaged answer right wants something this thoughtful. That's clear. A good question. Just it's a good question can shape the course of history because I feel. It can also change policy and that's what people don't realize. Questions can change probably shape what's already happened or we should things. And I mean, I've got an example, the black farmers, I kept asking him for seventeen years. They finally got paid after it was said that they were discriminated against by built for Bill Clinton said it was the essence discrimination, the US department of agriculture, discriminated against them. So they never got their money though. It took seventeen years for Barack Obama to pay them three presidents, and then also remember the ally. He's who came to the White House. During the Obama administration there, they weren't supposed to be the right? Yeah. Reality show segment, right, right. They were supposed to real housewives of c house. Where are they? Now I was asking those questions. Robert Hughes jumped all and my Stu, but they changed back to the way they used to have people come in. So asking questions can really make you rethink something. Change politics. You get to the clarity part of issue because some reporters, ask wordy unwieldy, feeling like where where are you with like you're writing up term may sit. A good question can be a short Senate hissy like four words, yes, Sam and some some people feel like they wanna make sure they get their thirty seconds. Now they wanna show that they're intelligent or or believed to be intelligent hiking, you know? And I think some of the reasons why people like me, I'm real- I'm not. Thus there are where are. Whereas I'm like here it is so what she got to say, and I'm going back to the to the question I asked her about the NFL in taking that day was are huge day that that Philadelphia Eagles day and I sit does the Pesident realize what taking these about? Do you went lies that they're black and Brown military personnel who feel that there should be native? Very direct? Yes, clear and sharp. And is changed the dynamic changes the conversation from ear of years shifted to the truth? Yes, this is what I'm saying and people are alley. You just want to know. I'm not race baiting. I'm not even know what that is right that that's that's just stopped share. I don't want to talk about race, so just you're race baiting your race, traitor. If you look at stats, take the emotion out of it. Look at the truth. People pose e- issues. I, I don't know. There is an equity in this nation and it's it's called selfishness. I think that we're going through right now. I one. What would you think you have? You know when I think you had? Well, there's a discussion. I think Lynn Vavrinec. Great. Political scientists talks about this notion of line cutters that that there are mostly white people who feel like there's a group of people who want to cut the line. So they would say, I'm okay with black gay in school. Don't cut in front of me. You know, row rates don't cut in for. I'm seeing more people like, no, you can get behind me not in front of me now, but they're like this notion of I worked. I did everything I'm supposed to do. This immigrant, this black person, this woman, this Gabor's they didn't, but they wanna cut in front of me. Yeah, and that's a discussion. I'll never forget. I'll never forget on CNN with the s. whole comments. And that was just between that was before I asked the race question, missed the Mr President you races on never forget..
