    TAG 096 - Being A Trusted Advisor

    We all have those people in life, those true leaders, who when we have an important decision to make...we will go to them. They are our trusted advisor.
    They are someone we respect. They are someone we trust. 
    In many ways, it's hard to imagine going through life without these people. They have so much influence on our achievements.
    In business, one could argue that being a trusted advisor is a necessity in being successful as a leader of an organization.
    Can you learn to be a trusted advisor? Absolutely.
    Join Michael and Jim as they dive deep into the topic of what it takes to be a trusted advisor.

    TAG 095 - When You Embarrass Yourself In Front Of Everyone

    TAG 095 - When You Embarrass Yourself In Front Of Everyone

    As a leader...all of the world is a stage. You're the lead player, and more than anyone in your organization, you are in the spotlight...for better and for worse.
    Unfortunately, for many of us, the worst parts of our personalities can draw the most attention, and often do.  
    We're having to make difficult decisions under constant pressure, and because of this we can crack, and in the process really embarrass ourselves in front of our team.
    If this occurs frequently and we don't handle our mistakes properly, our company culture can devolve rapidly and will become dysfunctional. 
    Join Michael and Jim as they reveal their struggles in this area, and provide key insights into overcoming this common leadership issue.

    TAG 094 - When No One Believes In You...Including Yourself

    TAG 094 - When No One Believes In You...Including Yourself

    There are those times on the high wire when it comes to being a leader, when it feels like you're walking between skyscrapers, and your knees are feeling shaky, and the winds are howling around you.
    Then, glancing far, far below, you see a crowd...and you can see it in their eyes...they are thinking: "That guy's going to fall!"
    It's actually a state of mind, a visceral, psychological event that leaders and entrepreneurs go through, and there is a highly technical term for it...it's called, starting a business.
    Or...launching a new product line, overcoming a crisis, saving the organization...the list goes on and on.
    Join Michael and Jim as they share how to work through those times when it seems as if no one believes in you, including yourself.

    TAG 093 - What Now? Hit The Brakes Or Accelerate?

    Business leaders are often faced with a challenging decision when it comes to the crossroads of uncertainty: should I hit the brakes, or should I accelerate?
    We've all been in that situation on the road. We're driving along at a nice, even pace. In the distance, everything is clear, and there is a green light on the traffic signal.
    Yet, suddenly, the light turns yellow, and we're faced with a decision. So too, is the case when it comes to your business.
    Is the wise choice to hit the brakes and to slow everything down? Or will it be better to step on the accelerator and ride through it with momentum?
    Join Michael and Jim as they explore this important topic in detail.

    TAG 092 - Leadership Strategies For Taking A Break

    TAG 092 - Leadership Strategies For Taking A Break

    Leaders, have you ever felt this way: Your mind is spinning, your blood pressure is rising, the problems are many, and the solutions are few?
    The walls are closing in all around you and the heat is clearly on. So what do you need to do?
    You need to take a break.
    It may seem completely counter-intuitive and some would say impossible during times like these...but taking a mental break...even when there is madness all around you...is not optional...it's essential. 
    But, how do you do it without falling further and hopelessly behind?
    Join Michael and Jim as they share leadership strategies for taking a break.

    TAG 091 - The Art Of Making The Right Decisions

    TAG 091 - The Art Of Making The Right Decisions

    There are many different ways of deconstructing the elements of success in business.
    Yet perhaps, if you were to best break it down, you could say that success comes from a series of many, many right decisions.
    So if we believe the premise, that success in being entrepreneur comes from making more significant right decisions, than wrong ones, then the pathway to victory now becomes a discipline of learning how to make right decisions.
    But, can you actually learn how to make the right decisions?
    Absolutely, and join Michael and Jim in this episode to learn how.
