He was essentially stripped of all his royal duties after his completely disastrous Newsnight interview y have you decided to talk now? because. There is no good time. To Talk, about Mr Epstein and. All things associated in Andrews Newsnight interview his big defense really aside from the fact that he of how they can't sweat and he's a big patron of the pizza. Express woking is that he didn't really know Jeffrey Epstein he claims he only knew him through his friend Glenn, bloom it through his girlfriend. Back, in nineteen, ninety nine, who an I'd known her since she. In the UK this is all Remember that it was his girlfriend. That was the key element in this he was the. Plus. One to some extent in an expert. You through a birthday party for since girlfriend then Maxwell at Sandringham. No shooting weekend a shooting weeks straightforward straightforward for choosing weekend. Despite the fact you know Jeffrey Epstein was at the Palace went to Epstein. Manson had dinner for him. He stayed with Epstein because because Andrew just couldn't find a central Manhattan hotel he's very convenient epsteins mentioned it was a convenient place to stay. I mean I've gone through this in my mind so many times. At the end of the day. with the benefit of all the hindsight that one can have. It was definitely the wrong thing to do is you say that interview was a disaster foundry and he was forced to withdraw from his rural Gt's I'm imagining heat hopes that would draw a line under the whole thing for him but then in July galet maxwell was arrested. The risks are simply too great. The words of the judge refusing bail this evening to maximum the one time girlfriend an alleged accomplice of the sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, might saw pleaded not guilty the hearing by video link on charges she helped recruit and groom minors as young as fourteen. So she was arrested in her strange though Bolthole and a few weeks later, a bunch of documents unsealed from a two thousand fifteen civil action brought against her by Virginia. Robert Scott Free and price price whose name pops up again it's Jews You know a lot of the allegations in these documents were already known but what is new is the allegation that? Forced Virginia Robert Scott Free to have sex with Prince Andrew as a way to gather incriminating evidence against him. And then on top of that, this month of witnesses come forward claiming to have seen the Duke of York, at trump nightclub on the night he insisted in the Newsnight interview that he was at Pizza Express in woking why would you remember that? So specifically, why would you remember a pizza best birthday in being because going to pizza express in working is an unusual thing for me to do. So he obviously hit denies everything but the circle is definitely tightening around Andrew. US. Law Enforcement has said repeatedly they want to talk to him that he has been cooperative a war of words as I'm sure you know has broken out between Prince Andrew and the US authorities investigating sex offender Jeffrey. Exiting The prince claims that he has offered to help that inquired eat city times but this is something the American prosecutors deny effectively calling him a liar the palace hopefully insisted this is untrue and US law enforcement has repeated it. So this is where we are at the moment. Do you think this puts more pressure on Andrew to cooperate with the investigation? Me The idea of any member of the royal family cooperating Larry's but yes, I mean absolutely. But I mean the fact that he was saying such stuff in that interview emily weightless without realizing how terrible the sounded I mean just shows he has no sense of consequences for his actions. I'm Jay his sin said, he regrets his ill-judged Association with Epstein. But as you point out, these aren't incredibly serious allegations and yet everybody feels like his story that dozen attract as many column, Inches Harry, and Meghan. Let's I think this is the thing when talking about the role families so much tension and I've just done two is focused on Harry Megan and the stupid decisions they make in his make it actually lady Macbeth is very telling for example, the mail there's certain Cole missed the male who I'm not gonNA pollute podcast listener's ears with his name, but he is completely obsessive.

Then that had lived a good deal of life. Netanyahu was born in nineteen twenty seven in the southwest corner of what is now Iran in a place called Abedin on the Persian Gulf just. Across the border from Bosra not far from Kuwait at six he was sent to board at Saint. Mary's a Jesuit School in Mumbai where you had an aunt, his parents abandoned. Persia. For India when he was twelve at sixteen and Nineteen, forty three, he lied about his age and joined the Royal Indo British Air Force in time after he trained to watch the Second World War wind down at twenty one he came to fight in Israel's war of independence and never left taking a job as an El Al pilot when he was decommissioned. It was with a few restless L. Buddies that Netanyahu opened cafe. California soon, it was filled with the city's young wannabe writers, directors and poets the people most eager to knock from their sinecures the city's old writers, directors, and poets who argued and held forth at carseat. Ab Thanh was a magnet for Bohemians and he came alive when he was with Bohemians, their company produced in him at once a sense of satisfaction. He had found his people but also a sense of restlessness eighty, nine ton was in constant search of his next Gig in nineteen sixty five he ran for Knesset advice of a friend who worked in PR he pledged that if he was elected, he would fly to Egypt to meet with General Nasser to seek peace after he failed to win a seat in parliament, he anyway bought a nineteen twenty seven steer.

Ice Like Stone
"Welcome to stuff to blow your mind. My name is Robert Lamb, and I'm Joe McCormick and we're going to be talking about materials today but this is a really fun materials episode that will shatter like glass in our hands or will it I? Guess. It's a big question mark. Yeah we'RE GONNA be talking a lot about ice, but a lot of exciting stuff about is you're gonNA learn some new things about ice I think and you're also going to think A bit more deeply about what can be done and also. Perhaps cannot or should not be done with ice. So if you've read any of George are Martin's a song of ice and fire. If you've read that saga or if you've viewed the TV adaptation, a game of thrones, you're well acquainted with the wall but to reacquaint everybody, this is a fantasy world that's day stunt sort of a medieval European model, and in the far north, you have this massive three, hundred mile long seven, hundred foot tall wall of ice that we're told has stood there for eight thousand years is a barrier against the peoples and the supernatural horrors of the far north. Yeah. It's basically. HADRIAN's wall except much bigger and made of magic. Yes. Yeah. We're told it was built by brandon the builder with the aid of giants and the magical children of the forest were definitely to understand that there is actual magic in its construction. But also there's this idea that brandon was a master engineer that he's in the vein of these various engineering cultural heroes that you see in various cultures. But of course, the the real up feature that makes this while unique is that it is built out of ice not out of stone but out of frozen water. Yes it is a wall of ice so. Ignoring the magic for a second here. It sounds like a great plan, right? I. Mean Humans have been known to make shelters out of ice glaciers and snow has served as natural barriers to travel. So why wouldn't a it'd be ideal to construct this far northern barrier which is going to be dealing with you know with far northern climate why not build it out of ice good. Question is a block of ice not just as good as stone brick. Yeah. So I, I was looking around about this and Fortunately. There is already a great book out there that dives into this very question it sidled fire ice and physics the science of game of thrones by Rebecca Thompson, PhD A physicist, and author of the popular of Spectra Series of Comic Books About Physics and I should also note that Sean Carroll wrote the Intro Cool. So she first of all, this is just a really fun book. If you if if you're interested in game of thrones and science I encourage you to pick it up I love books like this. One about Dune. I I've been eyeing one about star wars. But she goes through various aspects of the books and the world of West rose in breaks about scientifically Indus-. So in a very engaging humorous but also West rose loving style. So, there's there's one section there where she tackles the wall and she points out that ultimately this question would an ice while work is a lot more complex than you might think. So for starters, there's not just one type of Ice Crystal. There are seventeen types of crystalline is that we know of plus there are three different types of amorphous ice and three hundred. Theoretically she says there might be as many as three hundred different phases of ice. Depending on some of the the research out there
Court Unseals Documents in Ghislaine Maxwell Lawsuit
"Unsealed documents show that Jeffrey Epstein was offering advice. Take Elaine Maxwell as latest 2015 despite her lawyer statement that the quarters socialite had no contact with the disgraced financier in a decade. Maxwell's in a federal jail in Brooklyn after her arrest this month on charges of engaging with Epstein in a sex trafficking scheme, she's trying to stop the disclosure of documents that include her sworn testimony in a civil case. Joining me is Bloomberg legal reporter Patricia Hatano, who's been covering the Maxwell case that give us the background on these documents there? This is a prolonged involved. Story goes back here. There was a young woman named Virginia Robert to Frank's, and she says that when she was 16 years old, she encounters going Maxwell at Mar a Lago. Her dad works there, the maintenance man, he gets a job at the law. She's handing out pals and ah lovely woman. British woman comes up to her She's reading a book about massage and offered her a job working for this wealthy man who wants to go looking for a private, Mr She said. She was 16 years old at the time. So she goes to the mansion. If it turns out, she's introduced Jeffrey Epstein and he immediately and Maxwell, she alleges. Forced her to perform sex acts with the two of them program and she became a sex slave she and alleges that was in 1999 2000. So then she ends up. Trying to join a law with victims of Epstein after everything gets his secret plea deal, and she makes him comments about Maxwell publicly and Maxwell coming back and issued a press release in January 2015. She makes pigments and says that this woman is a liar. Would provoke a pram a defamation lawsuit. Dupree, Suze Maxwell for Defamation and Natural gave testimony under oath questioned about the sex trafficking. Judy was very, very aggressive. Her lawyers included David Boy and this guy Bradley, Edward and Pottenger in Florida, and they really went to question Maxwell at people that worked at the stain home in Palm Beach. All kind of allegation. Soju phase allege with force have sex that you have traffic in Spain. This man including alleged princes, possibly Prince Andrew. She named him and Maxwell denies it. So what happens is the stuff was all settled right? On the eve of trial, 2015 losses got settled right before trial, And then the documents were under field. So how did all those sealed documents get unsealed before Jeffrey Epstein's suicide? But after F being gets prosecuted, the Miami Herald goes to ask why this field And the Court of Appeals. Second Circuit Court of Appeals directed that the judge who had originally had the law didn't properly feel you shouldn't have properly field everything. It was improper to keep all the documents from the public. And so that's how we get to this point. The circuit orders last on the order all these documents and fields and all the documents start hitting the docket. And the next day, Jeffrey Epstein is found dead in his jail cell of an apparent suicide. So the document release was sent back to a new federal judge to preside over what properly on field in what should not be properly and field And you can imagine there's all these implications for other people whose names may can't come off other victims who allegedly were there when the trafficking occurred or were also traffic who may not want to have their names come out there like a Jane Doe Juan and a Jane Doe two and no Mortal, Jane Doe and also John Doe. So Judge Preska on July 23rd shelter hearing after you know, Matthew now been charged and says, Okay, let's go and have a hearing about what you get on field, So she ordered the first transfer documents to be unsealed last Thursday night, So that's how we get to the testimony. Maxwell with questioned under oath. The government used the testimony as a basis say stay. She lied and committed two counts of perjury for lying when she claimed she was never present. When Ft may have been sexually abusing, underage girl know, and she'd seen anything like it, she was not aware of that activity, illegal activity no more. President ever witnessing it so that testimony remains under seal because she went for an emergency motion and after the court of Appeals to again stop the release. Thursday night, the 30th so that was on 11th hour stock about part But the rest of the documents hit the docket starting at like 9 30 on Thursday night. How many documents are already out 2000 pages released in August. So that's when we started first seeing these allegations of possible you know Prince Andrew's involvement, some captains of industry more implicated some senators from former president their allegations that were flight records of people who were on the plane.

California considers worker notification for coronavirus exposure
"You may want to know whether a person at your workplace has tested positive for Kobe 19. Some lawmakers in Sacramento are trying to pass a law that says your employer would have to tell you if a coworker has contracted the virus. Your boss would have to let you know within 24 hours if someone at your office has been exposed to the Corona virus, Assemblywoman Eloise Gomez Reyes is the author of The Proposed law. Workplaces are Ground zero for Covert 19. Outbreak. The thinking is, this bill could have widespread support because who wouldn't want to know if they've been exposed to Cove in 19 assembly member Robert Riva says it gives people a chance to take the necessary precautions to not only protect themselves but to protect their family. Labor leaders also think the proposed law is a Sancho old just like the workers without a requirement. Report.

Cryptocurrency and Taxes
"We're talking about taxes right? It was crazy to me. Is that when we first got into space everyone thought it was like. I Dunno taxes was like such an afterthought but now that we're at the point where taxes have to be of forethought. Kinda shows the growth of everything. For example, my pops he hit me up. And he's like, how's do my taxes this year? And I got ask a bunch of questions about crypto like Bitcoin and do I trade and do I train light kind crypto and I. Didn't have the answers. So I didn't know what to do. And I'm like in my opinion I think that shows just the progression of space since we started the ship like. Regular Joes. I mean it certainly shows. Like a outward perception, a legitimacy. Of like how people feel this is a thing and it's gotten big enough to where like. Government authorities have to start asking questions because enough people are using it to justify them wanting to collect taxes on it. Enough. Businesses are asking questions in terms of like, how do I properly file if I WANNA. Take this as a form of income because I would like to. and the there's not a lot of answers across the board like hard answers but. It definitely speaks to like I said the legitimacy of how people feel. About this technology and if you think back to earlier days a good portion of it was like. An effort to completely get around. All of this stuff and make it a global currency that doesn't require that. That's ridiculous like an realistically speaking. You're never going to be able to run a business. Without paying taxes to the justification that business exists in. Now like it may get odd in. Answering the question as to where your business exists if it exists on the Internet. What jurisdiction it's it's reliant upon that's a whole different story the. I think as a business one thing I found out recently from a from my accountant nine attacks just an account. If? Your Business. And you want to buy an old crypto. That is just a balance sheet transaction. So that means, is Ya gotTA pay taxes You're basically moving in that's highly liquid southern that slightly less liquid on your balance sheet and that's it. So you can buy whole cook does business and your tax as if his property. Ebay capital-gains tax long term short term been how long you held it. I think long terms just one qualification anything long eating your whole longer than a year I, think qualifies for that long term capital gains tax. So. I think it's so difficult though like even if you were business trying to do this stuff. Like. This is something that I had an issue with and some project that I wanted to work on button due to lack of time and never got done was small business services like the turbo tax for understanding. How you deal with even invoicing accepting pricing timing of all these things and look how how value fluctuates in between all of these different points and so like if you think about this specific, that bothers me we say like Bitcoin or whatever is money it's not. It depends on how you like define money but like. When you the if the price of what you're billing in changes drastically from when you invoice to win, you receive to win. You can rec- when you spend it to etcetera like that's not this is going to do that. They're not giants several conversations throughout the whole process of like estimate to invoice to collecting you gotTa have three different several conversations. They're like, Hey, I know and we estimated the Bad Boy. This is how much big when you're GonNa give me but it seems like the prices gone down. So you're going to have to give me a little bit more big guess class not going to do anything like fuck that this quote we signed it it's a it's a go. This is go. So as a business loan, it's not feasible to accept cryptocurrency except for I would say Oh very short term projects or products. Right. If you have a factored in that, the spot price is going to change so much right. So if I sell this bag of chips I'm not I'm not concerned with the float.

It tested conversational therapy, which uses careful listening and the therapeutic relationship as the fulcrum of change.

Our say the beginning of the show this is a question I ask everybody because we live in this age of influences although I think that's a terrible title but nonetheless. I'm one of the things I always want to know is who is someone who we might not know or even consider who has been a major influence on you and on your leadership. Well there's The usual suspects that people talk about whether it's talking about Peter. Drucker. From a management perspective and two usual kind of business school books approach to but in reality for me a lot of. My corporate influences have been really nontraditional. So. There is a book called the art spirit by an artist named Robert. Henry from the Ash can school in eighteen. Ten. Nineteen twenty really early times who interestingly enough he He kind of broke down in enlightened my thinking about creativity along time ago and interesting enough I find a lot of the things that that influenced me over time. Or less the business books no less the how books in really more books that were philosophical. So a one level Robert Henry's take on creativity. Of starting with what you have in once you are in working from there was incredibly important. I would say from a strategic perspective when I was a teenager a book called the Book of five rings by Miyamoto Musashi, which is the the book that the probably considered to be the greatest summarize Japan wrote in the sixteenth century about strategy literally ten days before he died. And it's kind of the sun, Suu, art of War for Japan, but it's much center. And actually was adopted by the Harvard Business School. Thirty years ago as required reading and in that book it talked about. How humans are essentially broken down and Thomas elements of wind fire and water in the void. And talked about how you lead teams and so a lot of ways was interesting for me is the fact that this summary. Talked about the fact that human beings are multi variant the metaphor for him. Was the idea that when you're actually pulling together people, you don't try to make one-size-fits-all actually aknowledged what people's capabilities in what their? Lack of talents and whether great talents are without judgment. So the analogy was you're building a house and some would is used to support the house and it's very maybe gnarly and but stick it strong and you hide it behind the walls and you have been near would which is very thin and grab for a beautiful and you put that towards the front and you know the metaphor goes on you know with the idea human beings are the same way and that you wouldn't expect a beautiful. Veneer Wall to be a supporting column of would within the House in the same way to the metaphor goes when you're when you're hiring people and when you're actually trying to build a culture that you hire and you don't thank will this person needs to conform into this particular role that I'm trying to fulfill but you actually look at them and say, well, the role trying to fill is one part of the overall capabilities at this person. On Larry. And if you're. Smart about it, I think what you do you use the Job Description at you're putting out in the world is a way to attract talent. But if you do it correctly, the job itself is just one part of the overall capability of the person. You can actually almost van Diagram Denise between the business and within Russell needs are the personnel are, and if you can kind of do that crossover where they intersect, you can actually unlock two to three x the capabilities of that person. So probably long winded answer to your question, but does two books were interesting of a huge influence to me?
Meet Stagecoach Mary
"A No! That's what I'm saying like. The Postman only rang once. What. What Oh, oh, Hey, we're on! Hello, everybody! My name is Mick Sullivan and welcome to the past and the curious. This is episode number forty six, and we've done an episode about male done episode about trains, and we're kind of talking about both of those things again, but it's two completely new stories. One of the stories you're going to hear is about owning the dog. And I need to think friend of the show Michael. Fleming for his great reading on that one. The other store you're going to hear is about a woman who was generally known s stagecoach Mary, or at least that's how the history books remember her, but her real name was Mary Field and she was a very interesting person. Helping us with that episode. Doing a bit of dialogue is my friend Molly Victor from well. She's the creator of stoop kids, stories, which is an awesome podcast. Part of kids listen highly recommend. Check it out. Be sure to stick around for some songs at the end and patriotic shoutouts and a little bit of fun hiding out there promise. Let's get started. Robbers didn't scare fields. Wolves didn't scare her either. She had held her own against many even deadly cold weather was of little concern to her. Actually for that she had developed a little trick to stay warm and not freeze during these particularly perilous nights to keep her blood pumping, and your temperature up Mary would pace around her wagon all night long to keep from falling asleep. She figured if she did fall asleep in the cold, she might not wake up. A night without any sleep was definitely better than a morning. That never comes as you can see. Mary took her job seriously she had made an oath to the United States Postal Service and had become the very first black woman to have a postal contract and a carrying route with her wagon and team of horses she was responsible for hauling mail and freight through remote areas of Montana, meeting the train and cascade and navigating to Saint Peter's mission. This is how she earned her nickname stagecoach. Mary the fact is she didn't take that horsedrawn wagon to get mail and freight until she was well into adulthood. For most of her life, she wasn't stagecoach Mary at all, but instead Mary, fields. She had been born on a plantation in Tennessee around eighteen, thirty two was never sure about when her birthday was. Like the rest of her family Mary had been enslaved. Forced hard labor in the field was the fate of many enslaved men and women at this plantation. And Mary grew up to be a powerful young woman who worked beside the powerful men. She was tall over six feet by most accounts, and she had a broad, incredibly strong. Now, eighteen sixty five brought an enforceable end to enslavement in the United States, and while many emancipated men and women stayed near their families and friends. Mary immediately left Tennessee in search of work. She I found it on the river during Poker Games and bull sessions later in her life. She liked to tell the story of her job on a riverboat. The Robert E was a steamboat named after the confederate general on which Mary worked in eighteen seventy, there was a famous steamboat race down the Mississippi River from Saint Louis to New Orleans between her boat and another steamer called the NACHOS. Nearly, everything moved at a slower pace in the eighteen hundreds. So it might be hard for us to understand the excitement of a race travelling at an average of fourteen miles an hour and stretched out over several days. Wasn't a slow as molasses, but it wasn't far off. Nonetheless, Americans paid attention. The plotting pace of the race lent itself to the. Of the day, as the steamboats paddled in pushed their way down the river, small towns with Telegraph, the time, each vote passed by two newspapers, print and several daily editions. As exciting as it might have been to track the progress in the morning and evening editions of the newspaper. It was certainly more exciting to be at Mary Shoes, which were on deck or at sometimes below deck by the boiler of the League. She were called the crew feeding the boilers with anything. It would burn to keep the steam earning the paddle wheel. They ran out of wood for the fires. They'd stoke it with other things broken up furniture old clothes, even somebody's desk. What ever it took to win the race? She said to that end. They actually through a whole side of Bacon in the fire. That greasy smoke may have been the key. The League won the three day race by six hours not long after this through the connection of a passenger. Mary went north for a different, even slower paced work. She arrived in Toledo Ohio for the job. At the Ursuline Convent of the sacred heart she served as groundskeeper Gardner, and handled any other jobs for the community of nuns who lived there. In exchange, the nuns gave her a room board and a paycheck Mary definitely stuck out amongst the backdrop of Solomon religious ladies, sharing space nothing about the holy environment could stop Mary from yelling at them or anyone else. Who messed up her meticulously kept landscaping.
"robert" Discussed on New Media Lab with Robert Southgate
"Welcome back to another Episode of New Media Lab Today we have our first guest the incomparable troy hybrids trae is not only a green podcast but a good friend before we get to the interview let me introduce myself I am your host Robert South and I am so thrilled you decided to join me before we jump in Detroit Center I want to tell.
"robert" Discussed on The Robert John Boyle Show
"Support the success of the business awesome so it sounds like you're working a lot with people so talk to us a little bit about how that relationship will start will accompany reach out to you and say hey. We'd like you to coach one of our executives. tell us a little bit more about that process sure so so it may begin in a number of different ways as you suggest. Robert it may be that an organization has a particular leader that they want coaching for the leader may have a a new mandate a new scope or new geography or a different set of stakeholders and the premises they may have been successful with a group of stakeholders in the past. They may now have a different group of stakeholders where there are different agendas priorities personalities and how does that leader best navigate gate what it is. They're trying to achieve in the context that everybody has a different set of deliverables and you. You may not necessarily be aligned with what I need. So how do I influence you and get you to a point where we have a common ground and we're solving for the same kind in a problem so that might be one other organizations May. WanNa go through a transformation of change. They may be going through emanate tippety or growing growing organically and want a different set of leadership skills. How do they cultivate those leadership skills to best position that organization through the merger acquisition and as well to create a different LO- different culture so for example a firm may have had a steady state as Z. Grow through an acquisition. If the intent is to create a growth mindset within the culture what type of leadership skills are required for Roth mindset that would be different from how they've been operating historically so going from perhaps a process due diligent type of culture her to more of an innovative creative entrepreneurial culture which does require unique set of leadership skills different from how the organization as function previously obviously all right perfect. Thank you for that background and then one last question on this. Tell me a little bit about what it actually looks like when you're working with someone is at your meeting on a biweekly basis. A weekly basis are communicating via skype email like what is that coaching process really look like so great question it probably takes it's all those forms it is by weekly also just in time coaching so if a client is going before their board of directors or presenting to their CEO they may want to do a a dry run around the type of presentation the caliber of the presentation the content to make sure strategic enough high level enough and and so in addition to the formalized biweekly meetings we may meet in between and yes it's all those it may be texting skype there for certainly in person an and they also have meetings with their executive at times human resources talent management some of their stakeholders so that way everybody has a vested interest in having that employees or senior leader be successful perfect. Thank you for that so where I'd like to go next is no. We're here to talk about the Forbes article where I found out about you. Tell me a little bit about how you started writing for Forbes and what that process was like in why you wanted to start art putting content out from my point of view. Forbes is a very distinguished media vehicle and speaks to a wide audience a very seasoned accomplish leaders at as well as leaders who may be identified as high potentials emerging leaders and aspired to be part of the Forbes community so I thought it was good Benue for me to speak to some of the various leadership opportunities and challenges that come my way and and I would have a attentive audience so as I submitted my article a number of years ago I continued to do so and write for Forbes use probably anywhere between three or four times a year as other different publications in addition to Forbes. That sounds good so let's talk about the article on the article's title for everyone. Listening is why entitlement is the number one leadership derailed or you know I'm sure you allow these concepts generated in your mind through your experiences working with management and executives but from your perspective respect tell me why you wanted to write this article and why you specifically wanted to talk about entitlement of course so why I wanted to write about it and why I wanted to talk talk about it is that if you take a cross section of any leadership group any employee group and the statistics true within the population at large there are Dr individuals who are entitled and if we look at the definition of entitlement it does mean that that individuals feel they are deserving something usually really special extraordinary and believe that they are a cut above other people and whether it's their talent whether it's sports parts whether it's our technical expertise and when leadership as entitled it doesn't number of things one it. Does this act derailed because it puts you a card from other people. It doesn't allow you to necessarily collaborate effectively because you you are likely coming across as self-motivated or self interest which isn't about speaking to the collective win or the team team win as well. You are entitled. There's a sense of privileged. Perhaps you present as being indulged dodged in or just being better better smarter quicker more strategic knowing more and it is off putting to a your peers or your colleagues who feel they are equally smart where sometimes may be actually smarter but certainly have according to view and weigh hinch and want to weigh in and they don't feel they have the opportunity because they are clips or circumvented by that entitled leader. Okay and then can you talk talk about some of the situations that this type of behavior will lead to within an organization. You know you talked about entitled employees feeling like they're deserving deserving of something. It's harder for them to collaborate talking me about some of the situations that you've dealt with where this actually leads to a situation negative situation in an organization sure so all leaders and particularly the more senior you are in the organization. All leaders are encouraged have a point of view and a voice and it is why they we are at the table so the more senior you are the less reliant you are on your technical expertise in the more you are on those influencing an impact skills so hello an organization does foster employees and leaders to weigh in and contribute when though you show up at at the table and you believe you are the smartest person in the room that in itself is truly a red flag and because what it does is it then causes others to feel that they are marginalized so if in my practice the leader is entitled they will show up as arrogant and they will show up in some ways feeling that they are privileged or special and they they may do a number of things that are off quitting so they may try to buy for their executives attention by by asking for more time by asking for putting their hand up for a special project wanting to lobby in a more challenging or more forthright way for their own cause and when they do that at the beginning they may be very smooth mood they may be very polished and savvy and others may not see it but with time it becomes apparent that there are really aspirational and self interested in a highly narcissistic manner okay and then talk to me a little bit about that because a lot a lot of the qualities that you're describing sound like qualities of you know someone who's like a go getter. Someone who is ambitious talking me about the difference between someone one who has a a a solid level of ambition and wants to excel in an organization versus someone who's really entitled in thinks that they're entitled to Special Opportunities -Tunities and to accelerate organization is fantastic question so if your ambitious and aspirational absolutely those are qualities that that we seek out in leaders and senior leaders because it is about wanting to make a difference it is about wine to add value and for those who are aspirational `rational you think about. How can I increase my scope. How can I have a more complex mandate because this is how I am challenged. This is how I the. Mb measured on the metrics around how I do impact that's different than a narcissist leader who is about wanting to show off after trophies about hey look at me and their favorite reflection is their own reflection in the mirror that says look everybody. I'm so great and and you owe all of you might team others in the organization only for my smarts for my ability to allow allow you to shine verses leaders who are aspirational and or not narcissistic are interested in helping profile and create visibility for others so my clients who are aspirational look have very much a yes a need to win with. They do it around around coaching and developing others because they are great exporters of talent. They want other people to basically be a reflection collection of them were relative to their own achievements and they position and for greatness versus entitled leaders look at in terms of anyone who surround him is fortunate or Laki just by being near them and that's why others are successful so aspirational leaders who are ambitious want to seek out opportunities to profile there directs their peers because they're proud of that because they feel that they are a contributor to their success as opposed to created. Their success says that makes a lot sense. ASPIRATIONAL leaders want to lift people up around them but don't feel like just because people are around that those people are now better for being around them and where I want to go next I wanNA talk about this difference between aspirational leaders in entitled leaders in the context of win. something goes wrong when a project goes bad in there and now people are pointing fingers and blaming others talking about the difference about how those two leaders would take that kind of situation. I love this question and you're making me smile. So in terms of the difference wins an aspiration leader was something goes wrong what they usually do is they'll step back and reflect the pull the team in and say let's step back and go through the steps that we took. Did we socialize our idea. Did we do due due diligence. Did we speak in advance to all the key stakeholders to ensure that we've considered all the data points that we have alignment that that we have them on board before we execute and where was the missing gap. What are the lessons learned. How do we retrace some of our steps on. What do we do differently differently going forward to ensure that we minimize the consequences or the implications for the next time around. That's very different than in entitled leader who spends time externalizing lane they are masters at pointing their fingers at this went wrong because because so-and-so wasn't fully on board because I didn't have enough of the right resources because my budget was pulled because this team player didn't show up and so they are they excel at not being accountable at not taking ownership for are the problems when they go wrong and instead look externally and when you are entitled you're arrogant and when you are arrogant you have very little or minimal self-awareness minimal insights into the role you've played and also very little little tolerance to look inside yourself so typically what happens with an aspirational leader is that when they are given feedback act aspirational leader whose well-balanced will step back have a leadership maturity to an entitled leader.

"Welcome back to make positively louder? I'm your host. Robert John Boyle and you just heard Miss Sunshine by Ben Kenney recently featured on my other podcast fade for those of you who are longtime time listeners of make positively louder. You know that almost every single episode involves me reaching out to people and getting voice messages and then answering the question of of what's the best thing to happen to you in the past week and what I'm doing now is I'm keeping that same format but I wanna make the questions a little bit more interesting a little bit more nuanced and I want focus on some of the concepts that I've been picking up from Gary v someone who's made a really big impact on my life in terms of showing me things that I need to learn emotional. No intelligence things that I need to learn in one of those things is feeling like you have nothing to prove for myself. I feel like I have things to prove to my my dancer friends that I can become a really great dancer. I feel like I have things to prove to my college friends that I can be successful in the voice I industry. I feel like I have things to prove to my parents and my extended relatives that can be successful and for me. It's not that I don't want to be successful at. I don't WanNa have the obligation or the feeling or the need like I'm trying to prove anything to anyone else because I feel like when you have something to prove. It makes you impatient. You WanNa get there faster so that you can say I told you so and also what I've learned from speaking to people. Is that even when you end up doing that thing when you end up proving that person wrong it. It doesn't feel as good as you think. It's going to feel because at the end of the day you were doing it for them not new and so once you achieve it and you prove them wrong. You really have nothing left for yourself and you feel a little bit empty. You feel like your time has been wasted and this is a message that you know something that I'm learning something that I want my audience to learn in really inculcate along with me. What I've realized is that even though I'm a good communicator a lot of people aren't going to get it just from me and the thought is what am I bring other people on other people who believe in this concept and could speak to it and hopefully one of the voice messages that you're about to hear kind of click in your her head in in engage you to start doing something that can kind of unwind the thought patterns of feeling like you have something to prove. I'm going to introduce every single person that we're going to be listening listening to and I hope you can derive some value from at least one of the voice message that you're about to hear. Let's jump right in first up is at Jemma the creative co on instagram. She's going to teach us how to prove less implant more.

"Will be able to navigate anything from securing a mortgage aged to <hes> global currencies. I think these are all exciting <hes> vehicles in the area of and <hes> technology alsi for sure and in turn up in terms of you know the leadership. That's required excites me because these are our leaders who do have a compelling vision. See the world in a very different way <hes> they are changing agency are entrepreneurial will enter highly passionate about <hes> impact that they can have on the world and making the world a better place from a first world all to developing countries so when i work with those leaders <hes> they are very <unk> engaging because they have an intense commitment it to raising the bar or very excited about what they can do when they were able to be creative and think out of the box very good and i think <hes> it's gonna take a lot of aspirational leaders to get us to that point where we are in a world of driverless cars goods not just about the technology has also bow dealing with government regulation and dealing with you know <hes> you know society's taboos around getting into a car without a driver so <hes> i think it's going to be a very interesting decade <hes> to watch that unfold one question that i'd like to ask is let's see how oh wow i it just kind of disappeared from my mind. I know what it is. <hes> your we talked before <hes> we started this interview about. Some of the content plays that you're you're thinking about making your own career. Could you talk to me about the next two to three years. What new things that you're trying to do with your own coaching business. What new technologies and modalities you're interested in for sure so my point of view the further reach the wider reach the greater reach that i have the better because is i think very few of us understand what great leadership is about for some people they come by it naturally and it is intuitive and they excel it were others if they are fortunate to have had a good mentor a great leader than they can learn learn bias militias or more formally by the coaching that they received but if you think about how we advance within our own career all of us start off as individual contributors if you do a good job if you are process oriented if you deliver on time within budget then then you will be rewarded and then you move up the ranks and then suddenly you're a people manager so very few people managers the jurors have had training on how to be a people manager now they need to figure out how to motivate people what drives them and if you have up a team of anywhere from four to six six to eight individuals then you need to understand that not everybody is motivated by the same thing and and so by being able to reach a wider audience through different social media from my point of view would help you leaders new leaders <hes> soon to be leaders. <hes> who are people managers really acquire skills more more quickly more efficiently and likely have less misteps in their career and ultimately allow the organization to <hes> have better returns increase their profit margins because that's what the motivation is of not all most organizations and <hes> i really want to be able to to spread that message wider in specifically the point about people managers understanding that the people that they manage are all motivated by different things. Some people want money. Some people want more work life balance some people one more of a challenge and you really have to have those individual conversations to understand what it is that each person wants so you you know if someone is interested in connecting with you are learning more about you. Where could they find you. Wear on social media <hes> personal websites just like a plug a little bit about where people can find you on the internet so they can access. If they search my name they can find me on my website which is cindy waller dot com <hes> <hes> as well they can find me on my twitter handle at cindy waller <hes> and if they're interested in some of the thought leadership as you mentioned the very beginning robert robert of this podcast they can find me <hes> as a frequent writer on forbes huffington post ceo magazine <hes> and many other publications and access some of my thoughts as well <hes> i post regularly linked in and it could access <hes> some of my thinking in perspective. Is there as well. Oh fantastic. Thank you so much for your time cindy. Is there anything you'd like to leave us with. Before we end the podcast i think this was very inspiring. Opportunity virginity and i thank you for your expertise robert and privileged to work with you today. Absolutely thank you so much for your time and thank you everyone for taking the time to listen to us. See see us andy by now if you're still listening to my voice number one i wanna thank you for making it all the way to the podcast. I really really appreciate you taking all of that time. What i want to say what i want to leave you with is if you've listened to the past thirty minutes of this podcast. I hope you're taking in something away and i hope you can turn that into a behavior so if you're in that mood if you're in that mindset if you felt like wow i just listen to that and maybe i'm a little bit entitled. Maybe i have some things to work on. I think active listening is the number one thing that you can take away from this podcast. Start working on today and your next conversation and your next fifteen conversations can you while your speaking actively listened to what the other person is saying and ask questions based on their statements. Tell me more about that. I i heard you say this. What do you think about this. It's just a really really easy way to start turning on the active listening part of your brain and show people that you're actually interested in what they had to say and not just waiting for them to finish that you can add your own two cents on whatever it is that you're talking about anyway time for me to plug some of the other things that i do if you are interested that in me and my content please check me out on linked in go search robert john boyle. I post about entitlement post about all kinds of things voice. <hes> just whatever it is that i'm thinking in a professional capacity on that particular day and if you are in alexa user if you have an alexa device you can enable my flash briefing r._j._b. Three sixty five basically what i do is i take all of my podcast content and i turn it into two to three minute chunks so for instance some of the things that cindy said will turn into a two who three minute chunk that i will put onto flash briefing along with key takeaway in a way that you can implement whatever it is that we're speaking about in your own life. That's basically the format that it's it's what i'm thinking about the most right now i think the podcast audience will eventually become my flash briefing audience if you are someone who has an alexa device really appreciate if you could enable r._j._b. Three sixty five thank you so much have a great rest of your day..

"Sure so when you're feeling vulnerable it can take a number of forms if you're feeling vulnerable in friday's out because you were told that you are not good enough then and you can be plagued with a sense of self doubt and in the workplace that might show up as <hes> being timid as being not forthright not confident and if you're fortunate you might be surrounded by mentors <hes> ah bosses who really stretch you who really are supportive who give you an opportunity to show that taking risks is a good thing and back you can really excel despite that self doubt and with time hopefully some of those positive risks lead to great consequences inches and you can overcome that self-doubt so that's one instance for others <hes> the self doubt is basically basically to threatening to show <hes> yourself and the world and so instead of seeing it as self doubt because so you feel threatened you do to us you word overcompensate and rather than coming across as confident as self assured as knowing your subject matter expert you do exponentially and so not only are you subject matter expert. You're the best subject matter experts. You are a foremost authority. You are a leader. You are foundational in doing that. You're a change maker. You art that leader who is beyond and not having any peer unparalleled because you are sensitive sensitive yourself. Is that sensitive in that fraudulent. So you end up overcompensating and others around you <hes> may find you <hes> again <hes> very unattractive and at times <hes> hard to be around the makes. There's a lot of sense so you know someone who may be listening to this podcast. That's listen to what you said and is starting to say. Oh that sounds like me. You know i might be entitled. I might be an entitled employees. The reason i wanted to have you on is to kind of walk through a process of how someone can start to unwind that entitlement so where to go next. Can you talk to me about someone you worked with or a time or a situation where you were working with. Someone who is entitled and some of the strategies that you both implemented to start unwinding line v matt sure so it's funny because one of my clients comes to mind and he is very aware that he he is entitled or narcissistic and he jokes about it because he said i am narcissists and then he said but who isn't and the point it is is like you almost said but so what and my challenge back to anyone listening to this podcast is is that it will and it always catches up to you so even for entitled employees who are smooth and very eloquent at so 'cause in the guise of the collective team end up getting caught out and it does jeopardize your career. It does mean that it is a derailed and you will then it only goes so far or you will need to cross the street street and go to another organization <hes> and start and try and start all over game in terms of strategies. One of the best things to do do is to take the data poison. The feedback that that employees received so most organizations have three sixty feedbacks have executive or leadership assessments have employee engagement scores were there appears and various stakeholders and direct reports way in to that individual's leadership brand and and so what are your stakeholders saying about you and if they are saying that you are entitled and the implications of that then this is is not a sample size of one this is how you're being viewed and it is important to start to think about that so if you if entitled leader really wants to have impact and really wants to influence than some of the skills involved first off stepping back and having active active listening skills so are you giving space around the table for diverse points of view. Do you pause. Do you restate what others are saying. Are you prepared to shift your perspective with different. A new data points meaning that you don't always have the right answer. Even if do you have the best answer. There are other approaches solutions directions. That might be equally as good. Are you prepared to negotiate. Are you prepared appeared to be flexible in the fluid in your point of view and so those are some of the strategies in communication skills that i have entitled title leaders practice when they're in meetings when they're with peers. We also practice asking for feedback. How do you see me and how could have. I shown up differently or better. Do you see did you see me in this meeting. <hes> weighing other individuals points points of view in terms of <hes> collaborating partner or did you see me as running the show while could have i done differently how should have i showed up differently when i do. I do does that leader apologize and accept accountability for the mistakes they've made so there's two things two little nuggets that i want to go deeper into the first one is asking for feedback so a lot of people who may feel entitled adult like myself. I feel like i have a certain sense of entitlement. I'm also very introverted. So what are some strategies you could give for someone who feels introverted it might be hard hard for them to go and ask for that feedback or solicitor that view back from people who know them well. What are some strategies that you would offer for someone who is a little bit uncomfortable able soliciting that feedback so you're right. I think for sure if you if you or anybody is entitled than than introverted it is quite <hes> bull to go out there and to ask for it. I think though that there are a number of ways to do it if you you have a trusted adviser or somebody who are close to within your firm or your organization you don't have to necessarily ask the universe but you might start with that and usually all suggest to a leader to pair up with somebody that they feel safe with. They feel that they are closer to who is going to give them balance feedback. Who's going to be sensitive be able to <hes> give feedback in a way that is candidate but also respects. Your integrity is able to do it in a humble and compassionate way because there's an art to giving feedback. I would certainly recommend that. I also think that you frame it up in a way that says i wanna be better better and then every one of us has a leader has liabilities. Every one of us has opportunities to develop so in the spirit of that. I'm i'm coming to you to tell me at advise me what you think i'm really great at where do i excel and from your point of view and my leveraging these skill skill sets in the best possible way. Which should i be thinking about and then what should i be thinking about on what she would have putting into practice of things that i could improve john opportunities that i have within the context that we all have things that we wanna work onto allows ball is better leaders. I think that makes a lotta sense you know speaking for my own perspective like going to people who are close to me and then asking those two questions right like water my strengths am i using them to my best ability and then what are my weaknesses and how can i start to close the gap on those. I think are both very important. <hes> another thing that you brought up his active listening now. This is a skill. That's not much much brought up when people are thinking about their professional lives. Could you talk to me about what active listening is in some of the strategies in the habits that people can use to start developing those skills sure so who's listening and there's active listening and where are you going with. This is spot on robert so listening means. You're just waiting for the person to to stop talking so that you can input your point of view. Active listening means that you're prepared to listen with the idea india that you have something to learn. There's something to gain and that if you truly are supportive of diversity diversity thought bercy perspectives diversity input you're actively listening because you have a point of view that you truly believe can be and should be shaped by different perspectives and when you watch people at the table who actively listen and you watch the train if thinking this solution is extremely robust so they may start off with a certain perspective but at the end of that dialogue or the end of that meaning there everybody's in a different place because everybody is weighed in an a much more fruitful discussion at a richer <hes> solution shen and action plan that comes out of active listening active listening really involves the listener to ask some great questions. Tell tell me more about that <hes>. What are the data points that you have to support that. Were what are you thinking about. How we might operationalize is that or how we might sell that vision <hes> to this particular audience. Have you thought about any of the implications. What does this mean rush strategically in addition to tactically so by asking some really pointed questions. That's a form of active listening to because you're getting the speaker to expand on where they're going. You're diving deeper and you're now part of that conversation right and also making it clear clear that you are listening to the previous prompt in your next question really adds <hes> it may it makes the person who's speaking. <hes> feel like they're being heard. I think that makes a lot of sense absolutely because in your building on what they're saying exactly <hes> were. I'd like to put a bow in this part of the conversation so could you just let's talk about the roadmap in just kind of summarize what it means to go from someone who's in entitled employees to transfer to becoming more of an aspirational 'rational employees in leaving some of that entitlement behind them so if you're an entitle employees another way to look at it is that you basically set yourself up to be an individual contributor. It's all about me. Had i win. How do i shine. How do i approved by myself. How do i demonstrate to the organization that they made the best hire they ever did because i am an extraordinary contributor if you shift from that individual contributor entitled persona to an aspirational leader leader ben you truly believe that your success is dependent on everybody else's success that you have an ability ability to be a great storyteller to inspire to create a collective momentum towards a team win and that at the end the day you couldn't have done it alone. It's impossible to do it alone and that you did rely on the aptitude the talent the conviction the motivation engagement of your team and that is an aspirational leader because they've actually brought others along in a very very facilitative and engaged way perfect <hes> i really appreciate that. They're resisting to summary so where i want to go next. I just want to ask you know just a few few more questions for you. Wrap up not even about entitlement just about some of the work that you do so in your intro. You said that you work with a lot of you know engaging in emerging technologies allergies a i voice all of these kind of things. Can you talk about some of the technologies that have you excited. Some of the things that you're thinking about <hes> over the next few years well i think <hes> there certainly are a number of technologies and they all for me fit within the realm of how automate life more expedient more efficient and eventually when we get to driverless cars. That's one thing that absolutely excites sites me greatly because i think that when we have this perfected we will have an opportunity to <hes> reduce the number number of accidents to take away <hes> the stress on the roads the traffic the high volume on on the road as well in the area of <hes> <hes> <hes> there will be a number of important advances <hes> if we look at the use of <hes> lock chain gene and how you know one consumers will be able to navigate anything from securing a mortgage aged to <hes> global currencies..

"Yeah. Welcome back to the robber. John Boyle show in a special episode coming back from the archives in episode of voice. I haven't done an episode of voice in a very long time on kind of changing the format a little bit. Just because I need something to do on Wednesday, you know, wanna make the podcast every single day. And this is an opportunity for me to share a different part of my life around gets talked about as much with you all. So basically the format as I'm going to be sharing two to three news items from the voice, I industry to things that I think are really relevant to things that I think are very important and the just getting give my two cents. My perspective on what's going on in this industry and also given update on some of the skills that I'm building and some of the things I'm trying to make happen within this industry myself. So let's get going. We're gonna start with Google's integration with ways. So obviously, you have Google maps you have ways. I did not know that Google owned ways Google actually. Weighs twenty thirteen in, even though these two apps are navigation competitors. They're owned by the same company obviously go maps has had Google assistant integration for awhile, but very recently Google added, Google assistant integration, two ways. So what does that mean means that anything that you can do with ways with your thumbs? You can now do the Google assistant with your voice. You can report traffic, you can ask for traffic. You can, you know, set your destination you can ask for coffee shops near you. You can even integrate with Spotify to through the ways app play music in your car while you're driving. And this is all very exciting because one of the things that I'm most passionate about is the demise of texting and driving because of the voice, I industry, you know, so many people have gotten into car accident so many people have died or been injured because someone was checking their Email checking taxed looking through social media or China change the music on their phone. And so they had to look away from the r-. Owed look at their device in bad things happen. What's amazing about this voice integration though, is now you can say, hey Google. What's my Email Google? Check my reminders. Hey google. Enter this address. Hey Google open. Spotify play the song. Hey Google Google Google. Never have to look away from the road to make something happen when you're driving in that is really really important talking and driving is going to save so many so many lives in this Google assistant integration with ways is going to bring that capability to a lot of people because ways is a very, very, very popular Apso. This is a new very exciting development that I wanted to share. Next is Alexa conversations. This is something that Amazon billed at their remarks conference last week and basically, it's a new development framework for developers. So for those of you that don't know let me just give you a very, very, very basic idea of a developer of an Alexa skill has to do, obviously, you have to input prompts Alexa, will say something to a user, what would you like to do today than the user has to respond to that prompt? I wanna go bolting and then at the end in the voice app, there has to be intense and actions that will allow the user to do that thing that they want to do. And so the developer has to do all three of those things handle, the prompts the utterances from the users and then the intense on the other side to make the action into a reality. What Alexa conversations does is it simplifies the middle instead of the developer having to figure out because unlike a mobile app, which just has. Buttons that people can press with voice hap-, a user could literally say anything in response to a prop a prompt, especially an open ended, prompts, developers have to be very, very diligent in making sure that every type of utterance that use could respond is accounted force that the boys app doesn't break. What Alexa conversations does is it uses machine learning neural networks, all those things you read about in articles to simplify this process for the developers? They have to write less lines of code us. Less training data and develop skills in less time. Basically, does that middle part for them so that the developer can just worry about the prompts. And what happens after the user response to a prompt in the way that they want to. So what's really interesting to me about Alexa conversations is not only reduced amount of time, but the way the Amazon trying to use it because Amazon Alexa conversations rather is also going to increase. Discover ability think about what's going to happen, when someone a couple goes to Alexa and says, okay we. Wanna go out for the night, which means that we need an Uber to get to where we're gonna go. We wanna make dessert dinner reservations. We wanna make movie recommendations. And maybe wanna tell our friends about what we're doing all in one conversation with Alexa. So currently if you wanted to make that happen, you would really have to go to four separate voice apps or skills to really make that happen. You'd have to open. You'd have to open something like open table. You'd have to open something like fandango. And then you have to open some type of social media voice app. What Alexa wants to do is to really reduce that to one conversation with Alexa, where you don't even know what skill you're interacting with? So, hey Alexa, we want to go out, okay? What's the address of the place, you're going to I'll get you an Uber? That's a conversation and the conversation continues. Okay. Where would you like to eat, we'd like to eat at so-and-so restaurant? Okay. I met a reservation for you. Let's get your movie tickets now on and on. And on the conversation until all of the action items are complete. Needed. This is the type of flow in seamless conversation that Amazon is trying to create with Alexa, which in my opinion is, is actually really not good for developers, because if I'm open table, if I'm Ben dangle, my app might be used without the user, even knowing it. There's no brand recognition brand awareness, or brand, loyalty being developed in these conversations until that's something that I think developers really need to think about pretty deeply when they think about are we going to build our stills with Alexa conversations? This is a framework that is not really available yet. Developers can apply to become a part of it. But this is going to be a very slow rollout because Amazon wants to understand if developers, like it, if it's going to catch on. And if this is something that they're going to put money behind going into the future. In other news, I'm unveiling my own Alexa, scale called make positively louder hopefully within the next week if not in the next two weeks. The skills already in the skill store, but currently you can't shuffle the entire collection of voice messages that I can provide you have to say election next every single time, which is pretty annoying. So basically, in the new version, I figured out how to make it so that someone can just shuffle the entire collection. I also allow people to search for certain audio by category. Family gratitude health work, etc. That's really exciting. Basically the way the skill works as you say Alexa, make positively louder and then you can either choose the shuffle the entire collection or choose one of the specific collections. And then basically what I'm going to be working on this week is really trying to make sure that, you know, people can say next previous star over pause resume, and everything works, making sure that everything is in queued properly, which is a whole is a whole. Mess at the moment. But I'm getting there, slowly and also added in a bunch of audio so that you don't just hear Alexa, talking the whole time, but there's actually voice messages from myself, giving you directions. Because I found from my own experience that the skills to I like to interact with the most have human voice, and you don't actually hear Alexa, that often. So that's what I'm working on right now. Hopefully will be done developing that within the next week. And then over the weekend, I can submit to the skill story, and everything is good. It'll be in the it'll be in the skill store for people to download so hopefully by this time next week, I can tell you that is available and you can submit some be back to me. So that's what I'm working on right now. Hey guys, thank you so much for listening. If you are someone who is interested in voice voice. I technology Alexa, Google Serey Bixby, all of these things.

I hope you enjoy. Hey guys, she poppy here. So beneath their heart was just like very new types onto me was an acoustic Kanazawa, and I'd never really tried that before I was more used to either chop arm, be even a little bit of EDM here and there, but I was always really into singing, I always really enjoyed playing the piano, and I kinda just wanted to try that John music. I wrote it about a year and a half ago when I was going into my first year university, and I guess it was a huge change for me and, you know, a little bit writing about like some shaky does. But yeah, just it was. You know it's about someone. It's about someone you love and. I wrote the song, and you can kinda just read your own meaning into the words if you like I like to leave the song, for inter retations of what the viewer really sees what they hear because one person here is might be different from another and I like to leave that up to the person who's listening to it to decide, you know what the main essence of the song is and what it means to them, but very fun. According, this type of music, I saw a good response. And a lot of people told me to keep going with this type of music. So for the summer, I'm mainly looking at doing summer songs, acoustic songs just kind of vibe because if it's the season.

"Yeah. Hello. Hello. Hello, happy Saturday in welcome to another episode of voice on the Robert John Boyle show today, we are talking about Spotify new ad product of Spotify is slowly going to start releasing ads on the platform for people who have the microphone enabled in the bottom right corner. Basically, what will happen is while you're listening to music at a certain point you may receive an ad on either for Spotify original podcast or for a playlist created by brands that are working with Spotify in the way, it works is it's basic radio ad, which at the end allows you the option to interface with the assistant on Spotify platform in say play now to then play the podcast or the playlist which has been advertised to you. I think is really interesting, and I wanted to bring some people onto get their thoughts and their perspective on this issue. So I decided to get Alexandra Kirkland, she's a partnership manager at Jetson, which is a voice first calmer. Platform platform, and Scott Westwater who is the co founder, leave voice strategist of pragmatic digital. You're going to be hearing from Alexandra in Scott. And then I'm going to leave my own two cents for you. Let's jump right in regarding the voice ads through now on Spotify. I think that they will be perceived by consumers in various ways. So my opinion the ones who enjoy new experiences, of course, are going to think it's cool in those are usually resistant to new technology interactions will push back. I that's just the spectrum of consumer behavior in relation to a new advertising channel. But I think over time people will get used to it and start to adopt it so with that said, I think that this will drive voice, adoption and brand engagement overall. And I do believe that the more and more that we enable. Able consumers to interact using voice. It's gonna help us push his revolution. Of course, as we learn how this new interaction is received. We will shape the experience to be more favorable and personalized for the consumer. Do you think there will be some initial curiosity and use of Spotify ad format? Nearly think about it. It's not much of a departure from the thirty second or sixty second radio commercial. We're all familiar with tree can respond to the call to action at the very end launches something beyond that. It's not very different the thing that most people forget is interactive ad formats have been around for a while now certain cable boxes allow you to have an enhanced commercial experience NEW GUINEA requests, more information from apple also tried to create interactive ad format called I add that was offensively minneap contain within their mobile banner ads. It was around for about six years, but was shut down in two thousand sixteen due to lack of interest from advertisers. So right now, we're bit obsessed with how advertising are going to play out in voice our ad formats evolve. What is and isn't an ad and finally who gets paid for that ad that Alexa, Google home gives you most of us are still thinking of advertising in the context of what was not what will be possible as Ed formats get worked out by various media, companies advertisers. We better serve to invest time in capital in creating voice experiences. The provide valuable and useful information around their product or service insure your answering your audience's questions not pushing product as you build trust over time, you can build and couponing free trials and purchase direct within that experience. I think the future of advertising look vastly different from the current model. Hyper personalization and recommendations based on location and powered by will become commonplace. Think others like you purchase this, but on steroids in this new world path to purchase becomes friction Lewis and. Way. More one to one. Alexandra Scott, thank you both for taking the time to submit and sharing your perspectives. With me I'd like to build off of what each of them said. I the personalization bit from Alexandra. I think personalization is key in this kind of format because we don't wanna feel like these ads are interrupting us or taking time away. From us us only that they are providing value, for instance, I really should only be receiving recommendations for podcast or playlists based on data like people who listen to the Joe, but in podcast also listened to this people who like to listen to John belly on also listened to this. Spotify has all the data on what I'm listening to. I really should only be recommended and give it adds based on things that I may be interested in watching. It's actually kind of an extension of what? Spotify already does there's already so much recommendation within the platform. Now spotify's in a sense saving me time by explain to me with thirty second radio ad why? I may be interested in a certain thing. And then giving me the opportunity to play immediately while I'm listening to other things. I also really liked what Scott said how this will eventually evolve from thirty second radio ad to something much more interactive and much more personalized of something that I could definitely foresee is more of a conversation a natural conversation with the assistant. Hey, you're listening to Jon Bellion. Are you interested in other artists? Yes, here or some other artists that I found would you like to listen. Yes. It could get much more complicated than that the adoption of the combination of the personalization with the ability to interface with an assistant to the assistant can get a sense of whether I even want to be sold to at that moment. What's really amazing about that is I may be a mind state where I don't wanna be interrupted. But actually, maybe in a mind state where I'm bored, and I would actually like the assistant to give me something to satiate my desire to be entertained. You know? So those are some of the I have about this. If you are interested in joining the conversation, I'd love for you to hit me up on Twitter at Robert J Boyle underscore at Robert J Boyle underscore and just tell me what you thought tell me what you thought of Alexander's response. Scott's response. My response. What do you think about all of these things all of these ideas that we presented with love to hear from you? All right. Thank you so much for listening.

"Sometimes we have to folds time. Have what is not a good thing? Okay, grabby host. How are we do? They'll just see. Right. There's this holiday shin right now, there's connotation with old people where this big hole scared of big brother situation where of global Alexa, electoral does listening. Well, I'm sure your that a lot of what you say about that. So a few things come to mind. You know, I think we as humans will trade convenience for privacy or trade privacy for being excuse me. So a lot of people are really concerned with people listening. Alexa, listening to you while you're having your conversations and whatnot. And that's a real worry. Alexa, Google apple, you know. They can hear what's happening. That's how it works. It has to always be listening. So that when you say the white word, it'll do things my retort is always that. You're not really thinking about the the the how Vance the skills are gonna be and how well gonna be able to help you with your day. So for instance, I wake up I say, hey, Alexa, low I need to do today tells you all your reminders, Alexa, calling while you're brushing your teeth. Hey, alexa. Call me, my Lewer realized that your truth brush, your out of toothpicks less. Choose goes a lesson. I need something for breakfast breakfast shows up while you're getting. Uber. Like all of these things that saves us time that you have to use your thumbs to do like, I think that level of convenience is so underrated people tell me, I'm never gonna get in Alexa. It's kind of like when people say, I'm never gonna text or I'm not gonna use GPS because I don't want apple Google to know where I am those kinds of things. However, there are people in the world who don't have smartphones. I think are gonna be people in the world. Just don't get Alexa, Google, you know, I think are going to be people who as technology continues to advance just decide that I'm good. And that's fine. That's do you. There are people who still call the phones types. But like you're telling me if I'm using my phone for ways and ordering through reads like an Amazon prime inaugural location. We got over that one pretty quick like the same privacy. Didn't it's happening right now. I don't want them listening to me. But they know where you are in before in twenty ten nine eight seven having a conversation about is. Okay. The apple Google nowhere. I animal we don't really care about that as much now. Well, that's an interesting aspect of voice. I feel I could sit here with you for an hour. Yeah. Like, we get down keep flaw of society continued to fan of profession events tours general, and I think yours is really important to tell because a lot of young people. That's like that's my target audience. I want you'll understand that they can do anything. They want to do they need to be strategic. And then this thing about it. But they can really do whatever they want to do. And that's why we're talking about like extra pressures environmental pressures yet. That's why you're actually quite processes because you're you're young and people that like your age think the way that you do and that's the whole point. We're just trying to get people to think, you're right. I think a lot of if I could leave for young, let's list athlete. We're talking to young people 'cause I think super important if I could the young people with anything it's like twenty to thirty is an amazing time to try things if you don't know what you want to. Be. I think there's a lot of pressure that parents and just older people in general put on young twenty to thirty year olds. Like, oh, what are you doing with your life? Have you figured it out yet like well career path or you on. And I think that's the wrong mindset. If you really think that you're gonna live for a long time, which I think most of us are, you know? As long as nothing bad happens. Most of us are gonna live for pretty long time. And so twenty to thirty two seems like the best time to try things to do lots of jobs ticket vantage of your time to try anything's possible in don't let your aunt Hussein. Oh, why don't you know what you're doing with your life yet? Vince, you that you shouldn't try that thing. I love the. I just sat down with someone who designed watches for living has ever huge.

"Somebody is always watching now. I want you to understand the following. Somebody is always watching. Now, there is no interaction that you're having ever again that is just between you and that person. And let me tell you why I want you to think this way though, that may be true, right? Because it becomes he said she said though, that may be true. If you switch and live, the mindset that I've been living for the last seven years, I really believe that a lot of good things will happen for you. If you believe that every single thing that you do is on the record. You'll be stunned by how your behavioral changes, if you actually believe that every single thing you do is actually being documented is actually going to be recorded is actually being watched a miraculous thing happens you change your behavior. Not that you go from being a dick to being phenomenal. It just an I'm telling you cause I've been living in for the last decade. You just start sliding every so often a little bit towards a better place. And it's. Starts changing your behavior. And what happens is you start? Having momentum of positivity. There are a lot of thoughts that I have when I listen to this clip, but I'm going to keep them to only the two main ones that stick out number one. I think this is actually much more real impractical than Gary. Let's on when you think about what our future could potentially look like with cameras being implanted into almost every artifice in our society and people walking around with smart glasses or recording their lives. It's actually much more real than we might think that all of our actions are in some way being documented based on all of the technology that we have around us. And the fact that the internet is now here in conjunction with this technology means is there's absolutely nowhere to hide in that people are going to be watching it every single step. So I actually think that this idea that everything you doing is being documented or watched actually much more real and practical than people may like to think number two. And this is the important part is. It's more about the mindset, and what happens when you actually believe this and then start to change your behavior. If you actually think that everything is being documented than you realize that you now are accountable for every single action. You take you now may have to answer for every single thing that you do. And if you keep that ever present in your mind, it changes your behavior because you want to be able to defend or at least a polled or be proud of whatever ends up being documented later. It's about leaving a legacy. This is a really really interesting idea one that I had not really explored fully it's kind of similar to what happens when you're in a restroom. You know, I'm sure a lot of men listening to this will agree that when you're in a restroom by yourself a lot of times, you'll just leave without washing your hands. But if someone else's bear, there's now an incentive or more of a push to wash your hands and do the decent thing. It's really interesting. What happens when you allow that to spread to all of your behavior? Do we start doing the right thing that they would be proud of? We know that everything is being documented. I don't know a lot of really interesting ideas to throw out here just wanted to make sure that you all heard this. So that you can think about this yourself if you have any thoughts or ideas or surveys that you'd like to share with me definitely hit me up on Twitter at Robert J Boyle underscore of love to hear what you have to say. All right. Enjoy the rest of your day. And thanks for listening.

This is an interview I did with Marco on the own the truth podcast. He I'm not sure where we connected I he hit me up on Facebook messenger. We took a long time to find a date where we could actually sit down and do this over zoom. And I really really enjoyed this interview. We went into a lot of places that I don't normally go into we talked a lot about my childhood, my experiences in high school, my experiences in college. How my parents helped shape? Some of those experiences things that I'm thinking about after school. What it's like to be an introvert lots of things that I don't really touch on. And. And I think this interview will be the foundation of a lot of new content that you see coming from me. So if you're someone who's been listening for a very long time, I think you'll really enjoy this interview. And in find a lot of great value in it. So let's let me stop talking. Let's jump right in. This was my interview on the own the truth podcast. And I hope you stick around for the entire time. Joining me today is Robert John Boyle. He is the host of Irabu, John Boyle show on anger, just like own the truth, and rob how're you doing today. Thanks for. It's been a while. You know, we finally got together and made this happens on excited. Yeah. Yeah. It's it's been a lot of back and forth. But rob you've been exceptionally patient with me there's been a lot of stuff on my end, which caused me to kind of, you know, bump people and move people around and put on hold so. Yeah, I really appreciate that. Absolutely. So, but I've done with my previous guests is I've just asked him a very simple and basic question to get started here. Okay. And my question for you. Rob is do you know your truth? Do. I know my truth. That's interesting. I think I'm working on figuring out my true that think that's kind of a forever game. Knowing your truth for me right now. A lot of the things I'm thinking about her. You know, what is it like to be someone who's about to graduate college? I think that's mostly what my truth is right now someone who's young someone who's trying to figure out what their next step is. And that's that's that's what I'd say. My truth is right now. Yeah, how's that? How's that going for you? So far is going. It's going pretty well, so far basically when I graduate in may, I'm going to be starting we'll waive the voice X P, which is a service that we build Alexa, skills and Google action them to be doing marketing for them and doing that kind of nine to five and kind of building the Robert John oil show on the side is basically what I'm up to right now. And you know, in terms of like, what might truth is on just trying to keep both of those aloft at this point in trying to Cairo ties on both of those things, but also prioritizing like sleeping, well and. Making sure that I'm still having fun at twenty one twenty two there's a lot of voices. A lot of people telling me what I should be doing on. So I'm just trying to, you know, stay within myself and just trying to focus on the things that I personally find important and understanding that those things will change over time. Yeah. Absolutely. Lot of people telling you what you should be doing. And how you should do it. I, you know, I've I've I've gotten to a I guess an age I'm twenty six at where I just said okay enough is enough. Like, my time time to be my own person. Right. Yeah. So I guess. If you could, you know, just entertain me for a second. I wanna really bring it back. Like, the the earliest memory, you have as a kid, and guess, I guess the most significant one I'm I'm really interested in you as a person. And so like, you know, we we all have those moments as as children where those moments that kinda define us. And like, if you if you really, you know, follow the breadcrumbs back to that one moment you like, it's you could really see why you made search certain decisions and why you're kind of doing what you're doing now. Right. Yeah. So I'm interested earliest memory, this definitely, you know, this. This is one of those that takes a long time to kind of like figure out, but what I came to mind is elementary school in this is a significant memory because it's kind of the first time. I ever came into contact with like a series of events. You know, I don't know why this is coming to mind, but one of my friends we were playing on a playground in. It was one of those things where it's like a seesaw. You have one person on the other end one percents in in. You're going back and forth up and down in whatever reason we were we were doing it wrong. And he ended up hitting his head on the side of it. And having a huge gash a middle of his forehead like literally there was a hole in his head. And you know, we all kept saying like when you can see into his brain in that that wasn't true. But that's how graphic it's out like we could see into his brain. And I don't know why that's coming to mind. I don't know why that feels like my most significant earliest memory. But that's just the first thing that came to mind. No, I don't know what that means. Or what it is? I think the the reason it came to mind is because it was the first time I came into contact with this notion that like, oh, people can get seriously hurt that life is not all fun in games that serious things can happen in that house. That standing out to me. I don't know. Why right? Was was there. Anybody like did any of you get in trouble for that? Or I don't think so because it was really just one of those things where it's just kids being kids and sometimes kit, and but it was one of those things where I'm I'm sure there were new rules that we had in the playground. I'm sure the parents got together and discussed it a little bit. I don't remember getting in trouble. But I do remember thinking that like things were different. Now, we couldn't just play the way we always used to play. Yeah. Yeah. I guess, and you know. And you know, correct me if I'm wrong, Robert. But perhaps that was your first experience with accountability. Sure. I like that. Yeah. Because you know, the thing about accountability is even though no one was at fault. Yeah. You know, it was still a serious situation that we all had to be accountable for in that we couldn't let this just happen. Again. We all had the think about you know, what we weren't doing that allowed this to happen and how we had to be different in the future. So that that actually makes a lot of sense, you know, the first encounter with accountability. Yeah. Yeah. And like, it's it's so it's funny. It's almost like it's almost like we know that that is what happened like like. So like as a child right when that happened the word accountability. Probably did pop into your mind. Yeah. Like there were gears turning in your head, and you you're just kinda watching that scene play out. And you know, as a kid like, you knew that something was happening in something was changing, you know? Yeah. It's like you get exposed to a new kind of dimension. Like, oh, you have to be responsible for things. It's not all just fun and games. And I think that really is why it's coming back to my mind because you know, when you're playing on the playground. You never think that anything bad is going to happen in. So just that new dimension that bad things can happen. Anything can happen. People can get hurt like that. That was probably a new thing for me at that time, right? You know, I might I might be grasping at straws here. But. You know, being being introduced to like a new dimension or something maybe it was just being introduced to, you know, the real world like sometimes things happen like things happen to real people and kind of in the situation that you're in now like you're just about to graduate in hop into the, you know, real world, right? I guess the workforce or whatever you choose to do. Right. So, you know, the fun and games is kinda stopping and school. Yeah. I think you know, I think I'm trying not to put too much pressure on myself and thinking that like life is starting anew. I think a lot of my peers and people that I'm talking to at school. You know, we all feel like we're entering the real world. But for me, I feel like I'm just entering a new phase of my life. I don't think there's a cross eating a lot of people like to take the graduation from colleges across over point. And I don't really think that that's a good way to think about it because we're still very young. And we're still just figuring it out. And for me, you know, I think. About the next ten years of my life as a really great opportunity for me, not to try to be successful as possible. But for me to try to really explore and try to figure out what I wanna do for the rest of my life, you know, thirty onwards in. So for me yet, I'm entering the real world. I'm not in college anymore. You know, my parents aren't paying my rent anymore. But you know, it's it's just little it's little steps. You know, I still berry. I still feel like I'm young. I'm definitely still figuring it out. And I'm trying to do not stress out. Put too much pressure on myself. Just yet. Yeah. I get that. I get that. I I don't know. I seem to differ with you on that like back in shoot. When was it? The summer of last year is actually when I graduated I I'm I'm a lot later than you are you're what twenty one. Yeah. So yeah. And and sort of the reason why I'm like a lot later than you are is because I got held back a couple of years for for just having the worst degrades you can imagine managed to pull myself out of that. But for me the transition from post secondary to I guess the real world or whatever you wanna call it whatever's after university, right? It was really my first experience kind of being my own person because I wasn't tied to an institution anymore. You know, being in school, my mom had saved up a lot of money. So I. I was you know, I felt partially like I owed her for that. And so, you know, just just being in school was and getting my degree was you know, to fulfill her in some sort of way. So it was it was really it was really a game changer for me to finally be out of school, especially, you know, you know, finally starting to work. Yeah. I mean, I I was working during school. But you know, you like I just started to really branch out as my own person kind of going against the grain of what people were telling me to do spat. Like, you know, particularly my parents. They are definitely the people that were the I guess the voices in my head who kind of steered my ship. You know? Yeah. I think we're saying similar things. I think the reason I feel like this is less of a crossover is because for me, you know, from the very beginning. My parents always gave me a lot of re like they never told me what I was supposed to major in. I changed my major three times. They're like. Okay. Cool. And you know, for me, the whole time, I've been in college really my goal has been like, let me do what I need to do to make sure that I congratulate on time, but I'm really focused on other things. And so I've been focused on you know, social media content production dancing on all of these other things that's really been my main focus throughout college. And that's kind of what I'm going to be going into once I graduate in a few months. So I think for me, maybe it's because the crossover point was a little bit more gradual, and I've been focusing on it

"As I walked into the Medina. For the first time I was really seduced by all great cacophony of sound every merchant every trickster huckster was gathered snake, charmers jugglers, beautiful chaos and through it all came this music.

A new do tend as artists to owning deal in the very front end of it. But then now again down the line opening up some of the songs and looking back at him. I marvel at some of it, how nuts. It is he this podcast on going to be picking at some songs from here and there on the way mixing, constant ships and sound and intention from across this long old time. It was. How do we nineteen seventy five? I was in the wheelchair for seven months over. It was at that time, but the music was continuing to be developed. Dow was on my own in the continental riot, has in LA, while the world was playing hijinks at side, who was only one thing to do. Since nineteen Eighty-one. I've enjoyed many amazing exciting musicians men and women who encouraged and enlightened introducing me to crazy curves. I could never have imagined Dino knobs and crafts. We were rehearsing away. And she said, a good ask you one thing Roman. I think, well, what is that? She said is really chance. You could see the same thing twice a path that starts in the Midland's leaves onto Led Zeppelin and takes us around the world. It's not always been walk in the park, but I've been in good company all the way through my time.
