    Poisonous Leadership

    Poisonous Leadership

    Much has been written about great leaders, but what happens when a leader starts to poison the well? Some leaders do not have the right people skills, some are only in it for themselves and others actually see a merit in appearing as a saint while ruling through fear and oppression behind closed doors. It only takes one person with one drop of poison to cause enormous and lasting damage to an organization. My guest, Sean Lemson, is an expert in spotting and fixing the poisonous leader problem.Sean’s website is https://motivatedoutcomes.com and his/her/their LinkedIn profile is https://www.linkedin.com/in/slemson/.If you have a comment about this podcast, feel free to drop me a line through the contact form at cooltimelife.com.

    Why Are So Many Businesses Really, Really Bad At Culture?

    An interview with Drew Jones, PhD.For decades, companies have been spending money on culture and training and have very little to show for it. Why? Because they have been going about it all wrong. They have been ignoring the concept that Drew Jones and others call “the collective brain” which is more organic, a lot easier, and tends to stick a whole lot more easily.Visit Drew Jones at drewjones.co (https://drewjones.co) and his company at Experient.work (https://Experient.work). He is available on LinkedIn at https://www.linkedin.com/in/amjonesphd/Drew's book, The Open Culture Handbook: Five Questions to Drive Engagement and Innovation is available wherever books are sold.A full listing of our episodes is available at CoolTimeLife.com (https://CoolTimeLife.com).If you're interested in supporting the CoolTimeLife podcast series, visit Steve on Patreon at patreon.com/steveprentice (https://www.patreon.com/steveprentice)

    UPDATED January 2023: The Box of Time - Sounds like a science fiction movie, doesn't it? But it's not. At least not here.

It will allow you to to be left alone to focus, and also get people to show up when you want them to. It will give you some ideas on how to best structure your day and even lighten your load by no longer being the path of least resistance.. As a bonus, you'll even learn a bit about Bonsai trees.More information on our CoolTimeLife series is available at https://cooltimelife.comIf you're interested in supporting the CoolTimeLife podcast series, visit https://www.patreon.com/steveprentice
