+++ BAD BOSS HEAR DAY +++ Note: It's not a typo! The phrase "bad hair day" is normally associated with someone having a difficult time getting their hair to cooperate in the way they'd like. So the use of the phrase without the H.A.I.R spelling is intentional. We could say bad bosses don't hear or listen well. For the most part, they are cluele ...…
 
+++ IT'S MAGICAL +++ It's aahmazing what can happen when we truly accept ourselves through and through, flaws and all. But to do so requires that we become honest with ourselves by asking and answering that one question as our guest - Oleg Lougheed - discusses on today's show. When we as leaders become honest with our own struggles, disappointm ...…
 
+++ IT'S AUDACIOUS +++ Such audacity! Have you ever heard, said or thought that? Normally, this word is used in a negative context and because of that it is reserved for those moments. Right? What if you hit the pause button and take a second look at the word by simply changing it to AUDACIOUS? Our guest today - Alicia Couri - is a big proponen ...…
 
+++ GEE, A RAISE +++ Have you ever had to conduct a performance review or have one done on you? Do you recall what it was like prior to the meeting? Knots in your stomach. Uncertainties. Stress. And then to walk away from it feeling like discouraged, deflated, and possibly depressed. And to know you had to wait a whole year for this. Really? In ...…
 
+++ KILLING SO SOFTLY +++ There's an oldie but goodie song that was very popular in the 70's sung by the Fugees, entitled: Killing me softly that I loved. The chorus went like this: "Strumming my pain with his fingers Singing my life with his words Killing me softly with his song Killing me softly with his song Telling my whole life with his wo ...…
 
+++ TOO TOXIC, I'M OUT +++ Have you ever been surrounded by toxic co-workers or find yourself working for a toxic boss? Do you remember what it was like or are you currently going through the pain of one? It's not a nice environment to be in. You feel stuck because you may need the money but you wish you could be somewhere else. You go to work ...…
 
+++ MAKEOVER OPPORTUNITY +++ There are so many makeover-shows that adding one more makeover to the mix could easily cause you to go "Oh no, not another one." If that is your first reaction, I fully understand. But could you humor me and not be so quick to conclude this is another one? Because it really isn't. This episode is like a master-class ...…
 
+++ EXTROVERT DILEMMA +++ Do you know an extrovert? Are you an extrovert? Do you know that they can be annoying to someone who is wired quite the opposite from them and without self-awareness, can cause harm to relationships around them? They are great "cheerleaders" and the world needs them, but they have some limitations that undermine their ...…
 
+++ D-DAY +++ When most people hear the phrase D-Day, they generally think of it being a war-associated phrase. I'm one of those. But to some people, it may mean something else. What does it mean to you? Another way some have thought about it is that it's decision day. I have used the decision-day more often than that of the war-association. Ho ...…
 
+++ LIKE THE PLAGUE +++ There are a number of precautions I take to avoid certain things in life such as the spread of germs. I hate it when I'm in a crowded space and someone lets out a huge sneeze and not cover their mouth. They'll put their head to the side or face down towards the ground as if the ground or space is going to absorb their ge ...…
 
+++ END A STANDOFF +++ Have you ever been in a conflict with someone that lasted longer than it should? Are you in one now that's dragging on and on and on with no seemingly end in sight? Are you waiting for someone who have offended you to make the first move but nothing has happened? If this describes you, you are in a STANDOFF. The question ...…
 
+++ FASTEST READER +++ When I look at my bookshelf and see how many books I have not read and those which I've started and not completed, I just wish ... ... I wished I read faster ... I wished I could remember more of what I read even a few minutes ago ... I wished I had a systemized way to improve my reading speed and retention capability Am ...…
 
+++ GUILTY AS CHARGED +++ How easy is it to blame or point the finger to others for something that we are guilty of. Do you know anyone who does that? Do you do that? We all are at some point guilty as charged. No one can say I've never done it. When people are leaving the workplace in droves or are less engaged in their work, some leaders are ...…
 
+++ WINNERS LOVE SCORECARD +++ Who is keeping score? This statement have different meanings. In relationships, there is someone who is constantly keeping score to make sure their is fairness. It's their way of building up their arsenal for a later time. In a game, it is used to make sure everyone knows the outcome. Winners love to point to the ...…
 
+++ DIGITAL WOES +++ Indeed we are no longer in the industrial era and it shows. Automation. Artificial Intelligence. Robotics. Job losses. Retraining. Now what do we do? Let's see what the recent research by IBM has to say about this. 120 million people in the workforce will need to be retrained within the next 3 years It takes 12x longer to b ...…
 
+++ TOO BURNOUT TO KNOW +++ There was a time in my life that I would say I had symptoms of burnout but didn't know it. Actually I didn't want to know. If I did, I more than likely would not have acknowledged it or agreed with the diagnosis. Burnout implied weakness. As a man, not to mention a Caribbean man at that, I should be able to handle an ...…
 
+++ THUMBS DOWN TO THIS ONE +++ Clicking on a thumbs down icon or image, signifies a dislike, disagreement or distaste for something. Often, when I read an article that is meant to help me solve a problem, I'm given the chance to show my reaction to the content. This is done with two options: a thumbs up or a thumbs down. From time to time, I w ...…
 
+++ WON'T BE THE SAME +++ Every now and then there seems to be a food war among fast-food companies. Each one is trying to outdo the other by making a similar kind of product and promoting it as better than the other. The one that was first on the market - product #1 - has conditioned people's taste buds as to how that product should taste. Som ...…
 
+++ BEST WHEN EQ’d +++ Recently I was eating something and it just didn’t taste fresh. My taste buds recoiled when the taste of the product leaked out from my chewing. Ewwww! My brow knitted, my eyes shut tightly closed for a minute, and my facial muscles contracting. Have you ever had one of those moments? Immediately, I looked at the date lab ...…
 
+++ POWER TO THE PEOPLE +++ Before you get the wrong impression, this is not a call to some kind of rebellion. Quite the contrary as you'll read and hear. But there comes a time when we've got to realize we are more powerful than we are. Too often we hear so much victim stories, that we've almost accepted that as the status quo of life. I see a ...…
 
+++ LEVERAGE YOUR POSITION +++ Andy Stanley, pastor of one of the largest church in America - Northpoint in Atlanta, made this statement about leadership: “You leverage that power for the benefit of other people in the room.” Many people in leadership positions do quite the opposite. They use their power and position to serve their selfish agen ...…
 
+++ IT'S ALL ABOUT THE 5 +++ You have 5 fingers, 5 toes, and 5 domains. Domains? Yes. Here's what the Cambridge dictionary say about the word domain: it's an area of interest or an area over which a person has control. In my book: The Emotelligent Leader - Succeed Where Others Failed, I mention five domains, which are: Physical Intellectual Emo ...…
 
+++ THE MOMENT +++ The moment when their lives change forever. The moment when their world turn upside down. The moment when the thing you feared the most happened to them. What do you do? How do you lead yourself and those are going through these experiences? Is there a protocol? Are there steps one can follow? Is it possible to guide those in ...…
 
+++ SMARTY PANTS NO LONGER NEEDED +++ Webster’s dictionary gives this definition of a “smarty pants” - a person who talks and behaves like someone who knows everything. Do you know anyone like that? Be careful what you say or where you point. I’ve been surrounded by people who were given the designation of being a “smarty pants.” Normally, it w ...…
 
+++ IT'S NOT ALL THEIR FAULT +++ What would happen if people who are part of a system - family, work, sport, etc, share the blame when something goes wrong even if they were not the main person responsible? It's so easy to quickly point the finger and come down on someone when something goes wrong. And it's amazing how quickly some of these sam ...…
 
+++ THE HEART WINS ALL THE TIME +++ The notion that leaders can only get the “work” done through brute force, threats, coercion, or with some other power move, has lingered for too long. The results from studies and polls show otherwise. Gallup has shown where 87% of workers are actively and/or simply disengaged within the workplace. Production ...…
 
+++ TO HIRE OR NOT TO HIRE +++ How do you hire new employees? Their education and experiences? How were you hired as an employee? Do you remember? Most of my past jobs that I've had with the exception of one, were based on my education and experience. My RESUME. Yay! In some cases, thank God for that. Maybe you can say the same. Those ways of h ...…
 
+++ RIGHT BELIEF, RIGHT BEHAVIOR +++ One of my favorite quotes that I use quite often with some of my clients is this: "Your belief shapes your behavior." Think about any of your behaviors - good or bad - for a second. Look closely at the behavior chosen and you'll find a belief system that fuels it. These beliefs could be totally skewed, yet y ...…
 
+++ IT'S ABOUT COMPETENCY +++ Have you ever encountered someone who surprised you by their level of incompetence? The surprise came because you assumed based upon their title or role, they should know more than they are demonstrating. I've had one or two professors who made me wonder how they made it to the level of being hired as a professor. ...…
 
PBF57: Repurpose Your Content To Grow Your Audience By Bill Griggs and Kingsley Grant Podcast By Friday Episode 57: Repurpose Your content to rapidly grow their audience, increase their influence and monetize your work ... Repurpose is defined as: 1. to find a new use for an idea, product, or building: 2. to use something for a different purpos ...…
 
+++ I'M NOT CRAZY +++ Growing up in the Caribbean, namely Jamaica, it was taboo to discuss mental health issues. You dared not mention that you could be suffering from such issues as anxiety, depression, suicidal ideations, etc. To do so, would mean that you need to go to the psych ward because you are "crazy." Only "crazy" people have those is ...…
 
+++ BECAUSE YOU WANT TO +++ How many people, probably including you and I, do things simply because we wanted to? And how many times we don't do things, simply because ... we don't want to. Am I correct in including you in this? I thought so! We all are guilty of this at one point or another. The question is, what does it take to motivate and d ...…
 
+++ I FELT NAKED +++ Have you ever talked about yourself in such a way that you felt naked ... ... naked because of sharing things that most people outside your close family and/or friends don't know? And somethings they might know but not the "why" or "how?" It can be scary ... right? Well, this is how I felt in sharing this 100th episode of T ...…
 
+++ CURIOSITY DIDN'T KILL THIS CAT +++ Adult: "Don't you know that curiosity kills the cat?" Me: [silence] I grew up in Jamaica and this is one of the phrases I heard quite often. It was made by people, namely adults, who didn't want to be asked any questions that made them uneasy. That's my conclusion based upon looking back at the many times ...…
 
+++ ANXIETY ANYONE +++ Have you ever experienced anxiety in such a way that kept you back from doing something you wanted to do, needed to do or knew you should do? Did you raise your hand? Well, you are not the only one. I've had my share of those moments. I have used techniques like Mel Robbins' "5 Second Rule" to do things that I felt anxiou ...…
 
+++ AND IT'S NOT ABOUT RACISM +++ Before you rush to judgment and nail me to the cross, take a deep breath and read the heading in context. Did you do that? Now, is your reaction a bit less intense? Maybe you didn't react or overreact at all. Maybe you do not operate with a knee-jerk reaction like so many people do. At times, as leaders, we nee ...…
 
+++ IT'S COMING IT'S HERE +++ For so many people, Monday morning is a dread. Are you one of those people? They wish it was delayed by one more day and it it was, they would again wish it was one more day. Am I right? But ready or not, it's coming or it's here. You and I cannot stop it. It's like when you are just getting into deep sleep, it's t ...…
 
+++ I QUIT +++ Have you ever use those words and actually followed through on them? Or have you ever resigned from a job simply because you couldn't take it anymore? How many people today are in jobs they hate but do only one thing ... complain? Hope that's not you. On the other hand how many leaders have had people leave and have no clue as to ...…
 
+++ YOU CAN WIN BUT LOSE +++ Have you ever heard this statement: you can win the battle but lose the war? When I first heard it, it didn’t make sense to me. How can I win a battle but lose the war? Aren’t they the same? I eventually found out that they were not. Did you find that out as well? What I learned over time is that the battle is the i ...…
 
+++ HANDS UP +++ In general I do not like to admit to my weaknesses. I know what they are and I know the feelings generated whenever my weaknesses are exposed. One thing I can tell you, it doesn't feel good. Because I know what they are and how I feel when they are exposed, I try my best to work on overcoming, strengthening, or compensating for ...…
 
+++ ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER +++ Have you ever heard this phrase, thought about it, or said it: "Walk the talk?" I have experienced all three. Recently I spoke to one of my sisters and she reminded me of a phrase our mom would say to us from time to time. The phrase may not be as impactful in its written form as it is when spoken. But here is what ...…
 
+++ SPARE ME ANOTHER ONE +++ Do you enjoy going to the office/staff/board meetings? Do you find yourself tensing up when it's time to go to a meeting simply because you know it's gonna be "one of those?" What if you could change how meetings are conducted or simply get rid of some of them, would you do so? I've had my share of meetings and I ca ...…
 
+++ AT WHAT ALTAR +++ Every one of us has at one time or another uttered words these words: "I know I should ..." Have you? When you did, what were you referring to? Do you recall? Here's the most important question, "Are you doing that today?" There are 5 areas of our lives we need to make sure we are guarding against sacrificing at the altar ...…
 
+++ NIKE BLEW IT +++ This is a strong statement. What did they blow? It all depends on whom you ask. There are people on both sides of the aisle who passionately argue for or against Nike's decision to pull their Betsy Ross Flag Shoe from the market. Should they have done it or should they not have? Or could it have been avoided altogether? Thi ...…
 
+++ FROM THE HORSE'S MOUTH +++ Have you ever heard this phrase before? What does that mean anyway? The little I've found in a quick Google search, suggests it originated within the horse-racing context. People would bet on a horse they were so sure of winning, they'd attach the phrase, "it came from the horse's mouth." One thing I do know is th ...…
 
+++ THE GOOSE AND THE GANDER +++ Sometimes in life we have to decide whether or not we are going to allow our prejudices, biases, political or religious bent, etc keep us from being intellectually honest. What amazes me is how some people will use one set of rules for one person but make an exception, for another. It's like giving one a pass an ...…
 
+++ MISS TAKES +++ Take one. Take Two. Take Three. We all make them - miss takes. It's something we attempted to do and failed at. Or DID we fail at it? What if we saw our attempts as Thomas Edison did: "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." But ... ... there are some emotional intelligent mistakes some leaders make, ...…
 
+++ ECCENTRIC ANYONE? +++ People who stand out in our world and are making a difference, tend to have an eccentric personality. This means they are at times tagged with labels such as strange, weird, bizarre, and more. Do you know anyone like this? Have you ever tagged anyone with one or more of these labels? The late Steve Jobs was given the l ...…
 
+++ TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE +++ How often have you thought, said, or heard that? Oh, I've lost count. But I've also found out that some of what I thought was too good to be true, was actually true. Have that ever happened to you? The "kicker" is that some of what I found out to be true, I found out too late and I could truly kick myself. I wish the ...…
 
+++ HE'S GONE SHE'S GONE +++ We don't know the value of something or someone until we lose it or them? Am I right? Have you ever lost something that was special to you? Can you recall how you felt? Or were you one of those who shrugged it off as "no big deal" or "it's their loss." Some leaders do that very thing until it starts to hurt the bott ...…
