"Leading with Intention" with Dr. Mindy Hall

Dave shares his thoughts based on his conversation this week with Dr. Mindy Hall. Leadership doesn’t happen by accident; it happens because you take the time to know who you are and how you want to lead. Others won’t just “get it,” you have to present who you are and lead with intention.

"Shaping a Culture or Letting Culture Shape You" with Dr. Mindy Hall

Dr. Mindy Hall talks about how an organization’s culture is one of the most powerful levers leaders have for impacting performance. Culture is the social energy built over time that can move people to act or impede them from acting. An organization’s culture is never neutral; it will develop by design or default. The question for leaders then is whether they will actively shape their organization’s culture, or allow themselves to be shaped by it. Culture is not a program that gets implemented; it is built through everyday actions and messaging.

"Managing the Story of You" with Dr. Mindy Hall

Dr. Mindy Hall talks about what we all know, that perception is reality. Leaders often say, “I’ll let my hard work speak for itself.” That’s a nice sentiment, but the reality is that hard work often doesn’t speak for itself (or at least it doesn’t tell the whole story). You have to speak for your hard work. Hard work can never stand alone as the indicator of ability; to think otherwise is naïve and self-defeating. You must actively shape the perception others have of you and your abilities, not in a self-aggrandizing way, but in a way that does not leave the story of you to be shaped by others.

"Choose Your Impact" with Dr. Mindy Hall

Dr. Mindy Hall talks about how every interaction is an opportunity. Every action has an impact. Every moment is a choice. Are you choosing the impact you want to have? Often, leaders are rushing from meeting to meeting with no real sense of what they’re walking into or the contribution they want to make. This leaves both the outcomes of the meeting and their own performance to chance. They miss the opportunity to lead from a conscious state and intentionally shape how others perceive them as a leader.

"Notice Yourself" with Dr. Mindy Hall

Dr. Mindy Hall says from experience that nearly 80 percent of leaders do not lead intentionally. They are bright, capable leaders that operate out of intuition, pattern, and reaction. Some do so with very strong results, but those who make the decision to be more self-aware and intentional achieve higher-level results than those who continue to operate primarily from intuition. Developing this aptitude is possible and begins the moment you look in the mirror and begin the process of understanding how you show up, how you affect a room, and what environment you create. In short: notice yourself.

"Rewind Your Week" with Jeff Sanders

Jeff Sanders talks about the importance of reviewing our productivity and schedule each week. You can structure the review however you want. The point is that you feel like you understand what you did and what you are going to do.

"Equilibrium Zero" with Jeff Sanders

Author and podcaster Jeff Sanders shows us why it’s important to reach what he calls “equilibrium zero.” That’s a state where you are working from a very clean space. You want to achieve the simplicity of only working on one thing at a time, and that only happens when things are clean and organized. You then get to that state where you can say, “I have processed everything around me so now I can give all of myself to my next task.”

"The IDEAL Morning Routine" with Jeff Sanders

Author Jeff Sanders talks about how to structure our morning routine to help us dominate our day. The actual routine begins the night before. Decide what time you want to go to bed to wake up when you want. You can choose whatever focus you want with your early mornings but having a philosophy or a strategy is important because it helps to know what you want your mornings to mean to you. Knowing your morning objective is important so you can then plan the exact habits you need to accomplish your goals.

"Forget Annual Goal Setting" with Jeff Sanders

We put a lot of pressure on ourselves to plan an entire 12-month period. However, it’s never really effective because most of those goals have been ditched completely by the end of January. By the end of the year, you have forgotten most of the goals you set at the beginning of the year, or you’re scrambling to get them done at the last minute. On this episode, Jeff Sanders gives us an alternative to annual goal setting that is much more effective.

"Create an Inspiring Vision" with Honoree Corder

Honoree Corder gives us the first step to creating a compelling, inspiring vision. Your vision is the less concrete, less defined thing you want. Your vision is the energy and driving purpose behind your goals. When you set your intention, when you have a vision of how you want to feel some day, it can feel a little indefinable. But you still commit to moving in that direction the best you know how. You then identify the first goal you can see based on where you want to go.

"Big Hairy Audacious Goals" with Honoree Corder

Honoree Corder talks about why we need to set big goals. Really big goals. She says you know you’ve set the right big hairy audacious goals when you feel a little nauseous. You’ve got a feeling in the pit of your stomach that says, “I REALLY want that. I have to work hard to make that happen.”

"Plan A and ONLY Plan A" with Honoree Corder

Honoree Corder talks about committing ourselves to Plan A without a backup Plan B. A backup plan offers us another option when Plan A gets tough. But there is some providence that steps in that will help you to find your way when you unrelentingly commit to your goal. You will meet the right people. You will come across the right piece of information. When you trust the fact that you’ve made the right decision for yourself, and you’re moving forward, and you just keep walking. If you are 100 percent committed, then you will get where you want to go.

"Short-Term Massive Action" with Honoree Corder

Honoree Corder talks about how short-term massive action can change our ability to reach our goals. The problem isn’t necessarily that we don’t know what to do, it’s that we want more of what we want RIGHT NOW. So we give up what we want later for what we want right now. We want instant gratification, yet real results don’t happen that way. They happen one day, one choice at a time.

"Become a Master of Time" with Erik Fisher

There are two types of time: clock time and relative time. Clock time is 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour. It doesn’t change. Relative time changes based on the amount of enjoyment we get. That’s why we say “time flies.” On this episode, author and podcaster Erik Fisher shares strategies to help you make the most of your time. It starts with finding the things that energize us so much that it’s easy to manage our time and be productive.

"Start with Why" with Simon Sinek

Everything we want to accomplish in life begins with discovering our own “why.” It’s our burning reason and purpose for what we do. All the great leaders in history began with knowing why, and it’s the answer to that question that will lead us to greatness as well. On this episode, Dave Kirby his conversation with Simon Sinek shared from his book, “Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action.”

"Ask For Help" with Simon Sinek

Bestselling author Simon Sinek says we do not have to know all the answers, and we do not have to pretend we do. And when we are willing to admit we don’t know and ask for help, it’s amazing how many people will want to help us. When we give someone the opportunity to contribute to our lives, that also gives their lives purpose.

"Admit What You Don’t Know" with Simon Sinek

Simon Sinek talks about how most of us know what we do, but we don’t have a purpose, belief, or cause that’s driving that decision. When you have a sense of purpose - when you know why - everything begins to make sense. It’s amazing the clarity we get when we have a sense of why we do what we do.
