"And virtual face so when you're delegating for example and when you are working on projects you have to be as a leader much clearer on the deliverables. The deadlines So that your employees know exactly what to do and how to do that because again. We don't have that luxury. Luxury of those. Greg Interactions. That would be used to and an inverse inside so that just run example. The task behavior At the same time you know how do you eat? people motivated. And how do you make them feel to be part of the team when there are no seeing their coworkers? And they're not you on a daily basis right so You know quick behavior. Simple behaviors like Just checking in with everybody on a daily basis sending them an email or chat message scheduling five ten minutes. You know checking phone. Call today As I said you can do leader to bring the team back together. So mourners in importance. You just when you're in the office you see people you Bob Into people but now you don't is important is set a certain time during the week to do certain types of check ins with individuals or the entire team yes absolutely. That would be a big recommendation. That I think is your listeners says Make sure that you are now Much more intentional about scheduling the time with your direct route reports with your co workers Because again you don't have the luxury of meeting in person so Making sure that you have the communication lines open. And you're still whether it's on just phone or you're using you more any kind of video chat here but you are still keeping the communication going and what is the best way. Mar into productively communicate with people. I think you know the Go-to now has always been video conference. Call Zoom or skype or Amazon chime. But I think it starting to way on people. What's the best way to do it? We be varying communication. How should it work? Yeah I think separating it out and being Being very clear on wards the different communication channels are for so for instance. If it's a longer message that is maybe like an assignment or task or project. Use Email because you need more tax that were you consent attachment. If it's a discussion brainstorming type session useful news or any kind of video Fought for is it's just a quick Kind of a water cooler chat you know. Have Maybe System like slack for instance where you can just ask quick questions so having these different channels of communication is it's going to keep things fresh I'm clear rule so that people know look to us for what purpose more than you think it's important now for people have not used project management software for them to implement something like this so they can assign the and everyone agree on deadlines absolutely. Yeah so that goes to my earlier point that the leadership skills today I sailed a say. They need to be stronger. Louder more simple so when her had before we could have done by With with Luther type of leadership looser management of project and a virtual settings. That's not possible And we've people need that clarity and they can. Just you know very quickly. Ask a question or you kind of just check in very easily because you are in different places So having a IT project management system in place and the leadership skills around us so being clear on what is it that you want your employees to do When you want them to deliver and what are the specific outcomes then deadline that you want them to deliver a treaty Become so much more enforcement now that we're in this virtual work environment somewhere in one of the biggest challenges. People have right now. Well it's a different kind of challenge because it used to be that there was a war on town that you couldn't find anybody to hire now with thirty million people out of work. There's plenty of people to hire. But how do you hire people virtually when you never seen them yes? That's I think that's very important question. So the traditional Hiring and assessment tools A lot of them are available online. So you might have seen rise in video interviewing lately so you can still interview people. Now you would do that over Over video chat for it so we see a rise in that we also have been seeing a rise in Psychological tests that have been available online for For a decade now or more so intelligence tests personality tests. That will reveal whether the person's actually fit for them particularly at all. You can do all of these things online. I think there's still that human component where we we want to see and almost touch the person right before we make the hiring decision right but I say that this is probably a good thing Moving all the hiring process online because perhaps that will help us hiring managers to reduce the biased. And we my feel when we actually have a human being sitting across the table from us You know we both been in situations. Where in the first five minutes? You just hit it off with a candidate because You know their kids go to the same school. You find out that your parents come from the same town and whatnot And then immediately can buy our judgment And and we might WANNA Maybe overlook unconsciously Some of the gaps in qualifications. Just because we like the person so much and we feel close to them immediately feel so and Dro- chill environment when you are making these hiring decisions Through online on for perhaps there is a room for some of these buys these to be pushed out too. We're talking with more alantic who the author of the bestselling both the leader Hamid. Well of course with hiring Martin becomes firing and no small business. Owner likes firing people. It's always uncomfortable but now it seems like and how do you fire someone now and you get him out of them and say you're fired or do you do by email or phone call. What's the best practice here? Yes that's I think. That is a very very important question. And I'm afraid there's not one right the answer Of course The best practice would have been to meet in person and recognize the importance and and and we think that there's individual has contributed to our business. And do it in a very empathetic and kind Kind Way That is all simple now so I would say the next best thing would be an online video Chad where you are at least being the person they're seeing new head doesn't feel so this is when these messages are delivered over the phone or even the worst email there is a lot that can be misdirected misunderstood and we want to show up especially in today's Times as kind caring leaders because that is that is important. That's what really people need. I'm so sorry and especially hard now because there's a good comedy when you let someone go you know they're going to find another job but here with thirty million people unemployed not so much so it's really as best you. Can you really have to try to do it in a compassionate way? I think that's the stairs. One particular leaderships go let is more important now than ever than and the m compassion so being able to recognize people's feelings News SCARING PHRASES. Make others feel valued and appreciated. This is the time to do it so you were talking about how there's unbiased really in the workplace when people are sitting around and in person people in Iraq In different ways some people bring up the best use. Some people bring out the worst you. How but they're still biased. In a virtual workplace absolutely no various the bias is something we can just turn off. And it's not going to go away. We are all humans and then we have preferences and we like certain people and and because they are similar to us and it's realize skiing about other people who are different from us That is very very normal and everybody experienced whether they admit it or not Dad Level of by is of course present again in the virtual environment but I think it gives us an to to at least distance ourselves from from One one aspect of it. And that's that's been course communication of actually having the person here so there's almost like this It's a small barrier that perhaps helps us to reduce spies in virtual. You're saying you're not to have right. It's a little easier not have bias in a virtual sending. You're not necessarily sitting across the table from someone. Yeah exactly or if you were talking to them on the phone for example you don't see that so maybe sound.

"You've been talking about this actually more the need for communication now because people can't see you in person. I know that I was never of the generation where I really liked video calls but now I feel like I depend on video calls to connect with people in other customers. Yeah I I think there's a there's a there's a blended life balance between the work video call. And what's emerged now? Which is the the social call thing? You can even drop the word video which we're having shared experiences over a digital means And it's just different. Maybe you know I'm I'm having a beer with my buddies and I went to college in Boston. University and there was a group of us week that hopped on a Michael video call. They had a copy. I had a beer. We reconnected and we and we shared stories and it was. It was a great experience because it just allowed that reconnection but I do think that The importance of communication a continuous communication having different ways. That people can communicate with you as a business is tremendously important right. Now and people I've see are using the communication different ways. There's so many retail businesses right. Now they're actually doing virtual shopping experiences where they virtually take you inside the store and they actually shop for you and then check you out using your credit card leaving on the sidewalk. These this is becoming a thing day. I've great great faith in the power of creativity and the power of ingenuity and people think about you know I mean look at day. One scenario go. Oh my goodness I can never recover from. This is my business has just gone. And then you get forced into. I think we all went through that initial face with phase which was you know doomsday like but you do get to a point where you begin to think through that and if you can tap into that creativity around what can. I do to potentially do things differently. The virtual shopping experiences is brilliant. It's it's different. It's immersive. I think all small businesses can think about the that way in terms of how can I think about a different experience that I can provide to my customers using lots of different tools? And the one word I really encourage is don't be afraid to engage. Don't be afraid to have a conversation. I think as people reach out as their ability to communicate back with a businesses is going to be absolutely critical so I think. We're going to find barry more immersive experiences. I think there's going to be a growing role in terms of things like artificial intelligence and virtual reality experiences. It's GonNa be fascinating to see how that works out. But the most important thing is to think about it in a different way. Don't be afraid to recreate the business environment and the experience that you're creating for your customers because there will be lots of unique different opportunities. That's for sure and I really believed that the technology you choose as your major platform for your infrastructure is so critical. Tell us about what might tell is offering during this time. I know some special offers where you're helping small business owners out where they don't actually have to pay for solution until next year. It was really important for us again. During that initial response immigation phase that we focus on a couple of things. One was the customers that we have. Today we work very closely with value added partners. Resellers all over the world All across the United States it was really critical to reach out to the partners to the customer. And got a couple of questions or anything that we can do today to get your workforce either working remotely. In some instances examples would be that they had Either a telephony solution from myself that they needed to activate collaboration licenses We're more than happy to do that. And we did that for free There was instances where companies came back to us and say we do not have an enterprise grade videoconferencing facility to meetings We had a pilot Product that we made generally available. Call my team meetings and we made it free for six months on any platform and the last thing we did was we also recognize that there was it was thousands smaller companies out there that needed to get up and running remote working very very quickly. we've got a cloud based solution called my cloud. Connect and again. We made that free for six months and for us it was make sure that not just. Are we providing the solution but we recognize the immediate financial challenge that a lot of these companies were facing and that was very important for us was that we could provide that help.

Everything is virtual be days and this is hard for a lot of small businesses nine used to having to interact with all our employees. Well virtually so. How did you hire fire and managed people when you don't have the opportunity to see them in person to help is Martin Alantic? Who's the author of the International Bestseller the leader Habit? He's served at CEO Consi- a Denver based consulting firm that delivers virtual leadership solutions. That gives company the unbiased insights. They need to make the the most important talent decisions tomorrow. Welcome to the show I Barry. Thanks for having me. So how's this shelter in place going in Denver? Oh you know. We're slowly starting to open up the stage So I think it's all to be determined and everybody's watching it very closely. Yeah fingers crossed. I think it's really hard for a lot of small business owners you know. They used to come into their office and looking out at everyone. That's there and they feel a certain comfort when they see people actually sitting at their death and now more and they're kind of freaking out because they can't see everybody what do you do. Yeah that's a really good question. A lot of small businesses had to elmer knives transition to virtual work environment. And that's not easy at all The research shows here especially in leadership is that the the leadership behaviors themselves are the same whether you are leading people mutually or in person but the difference is that if you are in a virtual environment you know behaviors have to be much stronger visible louder so you need to to to step up your leadership game quite a bit. Will Martin. It's really interesting that you say that. The leadership skills the same in or their virtual. But you do step them up. And how do you do that? How do you over emphasize against communicate films? There are generally two types of leadership's go right. So so there's the the task though leaderships go that the getting things done with your employees then in In person type of environment. We have the luxury of of quick interactions just some bumping into somebody scuba call seeing them and the whole so. We can clarify any tasks or projects or answer any question. We don't necessarily have that level of interaction.

"To pay money to avoid getting highly unpleasant information about genital herpes. Then the less unpleasant information about oral herpes tell me about those people. So they just sat that happened in front of them. Well, how did that happen? So the flip bottom is drew the blood, and we said, okay? So this was your choice you had chosen not to be tested. So now, this blood would be discarded, would you please drop it down the sink and wash it up, and they did they did they would drop the drop the tube into the sink and turn on the faucet it with Bill. I mean at some level that has to be a little bit disturbing. Right. The Aditya drawing. Blood and throwing it down the sink. Yes. Absolutely. And that's kind of the point here though. So they are going to have the blood drawn. So you'd rather pay money waste that blood. Then know what your test results were did did any of the students give you verbal feedback about what happened and their impressions of it. Did any of them? Explain why they declined to be tested. I mean, they obviously must have thought about what the implications whereas they made the choice. Oh, yeah. So as we actually ask them, what was your motivation eighty five point seven percent. The most common explanation was because quote, it will cause me unnecessary stress rings. I if I test positive it's worth pointing out that there isn't a cure for H, S V and public health guidelines do not call for everyone to get tested unless they have symptoms. Still students rejected the test on principle ought to have been equally likely to reject both the test for oral herpes and the. That's for genital herpes. The fact that many more rejected the genital herpes test suggests information of Russian was at work. Approximately twenty percent of the students were willing to pay cold hard cash to avoid finding out that they had genital herpes. Another thing. The researchers found students who were in a good mood were more likely to avoid information than those in a bad mood. This may seem surprising. But it actually makes complete sense when you're in a good mood. Do you really want to ruin how you feel by discovering you have herpes? I it's like an ignorance is bliss results. Think for a moment about the implications of information aversion, so many health and wellbeing. Messages are premised on the idea that people will act rationally when it comes to preserving their health. What if that isn't true for a sizeable number of people? I think that we should consider whether scare tactics in advertising and things like that. I mean, whether that is a good technique to encourage people to get tested or not is questionable. When we come back. We're going to leave the lab and see how information version place out in the real world. Stay with us. I'm Sean Covey danton.

So that the oldest parts the brain the reptile brain takes over on instinctual level men men, they'd formulas we need systems that's a left brain, by the way for men. Now. The problem is is that most people are either exclusively left brain right brain there. One or the other. For decades, pop psychology books, and plenty of YouTube videos, have made dramatic claims of people who are left brained and people who are right brained. It got to the point that respectable. Scientists felt they had to steer clear of the study of hemispheric differences. I was so when I got involved in this area to touch it. It's toxic. Don't even go that this week on hidden brain we follow the work of a researcher who went there. What he's found is much more nuanced and complex than the story on YouTube, his conclusion style might be even more traumatic. He argues the differences in the brain.

"You have these rapid demographic shifts. You also have these increasing feelings of threat among many white voters and simultaneously also have a situation where one political party is seen as being more responsive to the anxiety of white voters than the other one. That's right. I think the Republicans have really taken all of these multiple factors into consideration. And used it to capitalize on a central message. And theme that can really again mobilized their voters, and the fact that their base is overwhelmingly white means that they can have a central message such as immigration that can activate and mobilize their voters into not only supporting their candidates, but also supporting the kinds of issues that they want to advocate for there's been some criticism that. While this is a short term strategy, and they're going to they're going to suffer in the future. And that may be the case. But for the president it's an extremely successful strategy as we've seen. You've also looked at what happens in states as the demographics of states start to change. So as the Latino populations in state starts to increase, for example. What are you find in terms of the behavior of white voters? While what you typically see is that as the population of Latino voters have increased you start to see the shift in the political behavior of white voters to support the Republican candidate and. That would be consistent with the theory that immigration is explaining that voting preferences of white voters. You know, we wrote this book before the two thousand sixteen election, so for better or worse. Some would say that it was presient of the of the outcome. But it was just remarkable to us that when we were putting together this this book, and our analysis is that from all these different angles, not just of you know, who white voters supported, but also the kinds of policies that they favor that it was really just that immigration was such a strong and important predictor in all of these different political outcomes that we were exploring, and so I think that's where this idea that it was really this white backlash towards immigration. That's currently the political climate. We live in today. When we come back. What Maria Sabra Hannah's thesis about a white backlash means for politics and elections.

"This is hidden brain. I'm Sean Covey. Danton Darshan fear and send them a lion. Athen believed that when something you desperately need is in short supply, your brain tends to focus on that thing. This focus can be so intense that it impedes your ability to think about anything else. What happens when the thing you're missing it's time when you're so busy, it feels like you don't have time to breathe let me tell you the story of a young woman named Katie. She asked us to use her middle name for reasons that will be clear in a moment for as long as she can remember Katie has been driven really driven. When I was in high school. I was determined to be valid Taurean. So I took a sophomore level honors biology course, as a freshman in high school, and I studied around the clock. I had no cards I walked through the hallways with the note cards. If there was a holiday party, I brought the note cards, and I had also studied till two or three in the morning, Katie says she wanted to be perfect at school. She eventually got to medical school where she excelled. She graduated at the top of her class and quickly started her residency. The new schedule was grueling. You can get in at five thirty or six in the morning, and you round on all your patients. And then you you round with the team that means you go to all the patient. Checking on their plan and adjust medications, etc. As necessary, and then there's usually a lunch conference where we have education and then in the afternoon, we might take new patients in and keep following up on our patients and on some days, we get to leave at four pm somedays. We don't leave till one AM. He's usually start the next day at five thirty or six in the morning again. And you get one day off a week usually work eighty hours a week as katie's workload grew. She started to feel she couldn't afford to waste a single moment. Instead of spending anytime relaxing. She started to focus only on things directly related to her success at work when I first started it was just like really busy. So I try to come home. And I felt like, you know, I just don't have a lot of hours. So I need to make the most of them was like, okay, I need to make sure I'm exercising. Keeping my body healthy in any to read and stay on top of things. So I come home after pretty long day, and I might go walking for half an hour. And then I'd read and then I go to sleep. But then as time went on decided to try to get in more exercise than like, I never know when I'll get enough exercise..

Mark Twain: great novelist,  horrible investor

"Twain also invested a lot of money throughout his life though, and he is the first person who's big investment mistake Michael told us about, and actually in the case of twain, it was more than one he made every mistake in the. He was addicted to entrepreneurs. He would fall for anything. He would back any idea. He dabbled in stocks and silver mines, and gold mines. And he just everything he touched, went south twin was like an early version of a venture capitalist. He invested his money in a bunch of new kind of faddish ideas except he was terrible at it. He put his money into milk powder, extract railroad stocks a startup insurance company. They were all disasters and the one big idea that he chose not to put his money into you that he passed up when you had a chance. Alexander Graham Bell telephone, oh, which would have made twain a fortune between biggest mistake. Michael says, might have been throwing a lot of money at this big typesetting business, and it had to do with this machine. The twain hoped would be used by newspapers and publishing companies and twin kept investing more and more and more money in this typesetting business, even as its loss. Were just piling up on his biggest mistake was that he didn't know when to say no moss. I'm not going to continue to fund this really bad investment. Why do you think he could not walk away a, he was human and we all have our our flaws and limitations, and there's something called revenge trading where if you lose money in a stock, you want to win it back the same way and he just could not control himself. And I think that a an underlying theme in this book is that discipline and self awareness is a lot more important to determine your long success than just ro IQ, revenge. Tradings like the worst sequel to a movie ever. Trading revenge, trading revenge of the trader. Poor Mark Twain. Yeah, twain ended up losing an amount of money on that typesetting investment that would be the equivalent today of millions of dollars, but not knowing one to cut. Your losses is actually not the only lesson that we should take away from the story of Mark Twain's terrible investment record. There's another lesson which is at you can be amazing world class at this one thing. Just like Mark Twain obviously was at writing and still be terrible, horrible hopeless at another completely different walk of life like investing or that you can be really bad at investing and still be a really wonderful human being a light in the world gift to the country, all those things. And just I like that change the perspective. Very nice, right. And just like just maybe just, you know, put it in index funds, just put it in index funds next up the oracle from Omaha himself.
