    Connecting More Powerfully With Clients – Paul Cowan

    Connecting More Powerfully With Clients – Paul Cowan

    Whether you are a Business to Business company or a Business to Consumer company the fact is we all need clients.  And that means that connecting with prospective or current clients becomes  priority one.  The problem is that connecting with others is not easy.  In fact, connecting and staying connected will be one of the most difficult tasks that you will undertake in your business.  Thankfully for all of us therapist, counselor, and marketing company owner Paul Cowan helps us connect with our clients more powerfully on this episode of A New Direction.



    Paul Cowan's book "Connecting with Clients: For stronger, more rewarding and longer-lasting client relationships" is a series of short vignettes that quickly explores through stories, research, and psychology how connecting with our clients can be achieved with much greater success.  Let's be honest during every step of the sales process from beginning to nurturing being connected is a business lifeline.  The fact is the client can hold many of the cards, but if you do the things necessary to truly build into the relationship it can be a beautiful thing.  Paul Cowan uses his wisdom in "Connecting with Clients" by understanding that like any relationship counseling session staying connect, and re-connecting is not always easy but it is worth it!

    Leading Others Successfully – The Leadership Core – Will Schirmer

    Leading Others Successfully – The Leadership Core – Will Schirmer

    Everyone wants to be the one leading the charge, but no one wants the real responsibility that comes with it.  Leading others sounds great until you realize it is more than a title.  Leading is not about you being in charge.  Leading is about taking care of others.  Demonstrating you care.  Showing them understanding and compassion.  Leading is not about giving them fish, or philosophizing about fishing, but taking the time to give them the skills to fish.  Leading requires character, the ability to motivate, or at least understand others motivations, it is about making the right hire, helping people adjust through change, dealing with emotional fall out and becoming a servant who understand how to be a good steward of your people and resources.  When it comes to leading others there is a great deal to consider, but thankfully on this episode of A New Direction  Author and Leadership Expert Will Schirmer leads us into becoming more successful when it comes to leadership.

    William Schirmer's book "The Leadership Core: Competencies for Successfully Leading Others" is literally a toolkit on leadership.   Will Schirmehttps://www.willschirmerofficial.com/r has synthesized years of research on leadership and gives you insights into your leadership growth. The book starts with the character of a leader and works it way through issues of motivation, hiring, onboarding, managing performance, servancy and stewardship and so much more!  "The Leadership Core" is truly a book that you can use as a reference guide to help you navigate you business or organization whether you are new to leading or have been leading for decades.  It is filled with tips and perhaps leadership hacks that will help you in nearly every situation you may come across as a leader.

    Speaking Your Way to Greater Leadership and Success – Sean Tyler Foley

    It has been said that one of the greatest fears that people have is to speak in public.  In fact, the fear of dying is less than the fear of public speaking.  And yet we also know that great leaders tend to be great public speakers.  In fact, it could be argued that it is difficult to lead without the skill of public speaking.  And there in lies the truth...it is a skill that can be learned.  If you are looking to grow yourself as a leader and/or achieve more success in your business or career to speak publicly is a skill you will want to develop.  But how?  Well thankfully for us speaking expert Sean Tyler Foley joins Ralph Peterson (guest host) on this episode of A New Direction.

    Sean Tyler Foley's book is entitled "The Power to Speak Naked".  Don't worry you can leave you clothes on, but you will have to gain confidence in the fact that your authenticity matters.  The truth is we all have a story.  There are stories in our life that mean something much deeper.  They are important to us.  It is those stories coupled with your authenticity that will get you started to become the speaking leader you thought you always were!  The Power to Speak Naked by Tyler Foley has all the tips and tricks to help you overcome your fear of speaking and give you the confidence to advance your career and leadership.

    Vision, Goals, and Pre-Plan – Do What Matters Most – Rob Shallenberger

    Vision, Goals, and Pre-Plan – Do What Matters Most – Rob Shallenberger

    The Proverb states, "People without a vision perish".  Meaning that without a vision you will wander aimlessly, run wild without restraint, only to be ridiculed laughed at, and life just happens and they wind up with nothing.  Most often we think about "vision" when it comes to business, but if you don't have a personal vision it is impossible to lead others.   Without a vision, quite frankly you will struggle to lead yourself.  If you want to be the best you can be.  If you want to achieve peak performance, be more productive, become more profitable, and be a better leader it all starts with your vision.  And thankfully former F-16 Fighter Pilot Rob Shallenberger joins us on A New Direction to help us "Do What Matters Most"



    Rob Shallenberger and his dad have written an outstanding book that will make you better and help you become your best.  The title "Do What Matters Most: Lead with a Vision, Manage with a Plan, Prioritize Your Time, is the result of research they have conducted with more than 1000 leaders from around the world.  The have come up with the Big Three when it comes to your performance and productivity, Vision, Goals, and Weekly Pre-Planning.  You may say that there is nothing earth shattering about those three things, but the problem is less than 2% of leaders actually do it, and the one's that do are the most successful.  The Do What Matters Most also contains the FREE Be Your Best Assessment www.BYBassessment.com, the FREE Goals and Roles Sheets BYBgoals.com .  I highly recommend that book check out the free resources at www.becomingyourbest.com

    Excellence and Success in Your Business – The John Wooden Way – Lynn Guerin

    https://coachemwayup.com/about-the-authors/lynn-guerin/When it comes to undefeated teams and national championships none were more dominant than UCLA coached by John Wooden.  Considered by coaches to be the greatest coach ever John Wooden left a legacy of excellence and success.  There was no doubt that his teams were the best.  He played a team game even though he had superstars.  No one person was ever bigger than John Wooden's entire team.  It was that level of excellence that is legendary.     When you hear the word "excellence' does that describe your business?  What about success?  John Wooden would tell you that excellence and success are both a journey.  But how can you get your business there?  Well fortunately for us Lynn Guerin who journeyed with Coach Wooden the last 20 years of his life is on this episode of A New Direction to help us.



    The John Wooden Way for Organizational Excellence is based on Lynn Guerin's book entitled "Coach 'Em Way Up!".  It is a close examination on how you can be a better leader, a better teacher, a better coach, a better human being and how it applies to your organization and business.  The Organizational Excellence pyramid closely resembles John Woolen's Pyramid of personal excellence.  There is no doubt that this book will have a positive effects on you, your business and/or organizational and the people in it.  I highly recommend checking out and reading  "Coach 'Em Way Up!"

    Alignment, Mission, Leadership and Success – Art Johnson – The Art of Alignment

    Can you quote your company's mission statement perfectly?  Are you a leader in your company and can you quote the mission with 100% accuracy?  If you cannot well then, "Houston we have a problem." And the problem is you and your company are out of alignment.  Your mission statement should be so ingrained that everyone in the company can not only quote it, but they understand that every decision that will be made in the company will be guided by the mission statement.  Clearly if you are going to have alignment you better have a mission statement that is more than some neat phrases and cliche's it needs to be how you and your company will live and be.  Are you struggling with your mission and alignment?  Well thankfully Art Johnson is here on this episode of A New Direction to help you remove the rocks in the road and get you back aligned



    Art Johnson's book "The Art of Alignment" is #2 on the Wall Street Journal Best Seller List.  While the book talks about alignment it is a fabulous eye opener for leaders and leadership.  Because as we all know alignment starts with, and is cultivated, and communicated by the leaders in any organization.  Further Art Johnson gives you the 9 Pillars of Alignment: Mission and Vision, Leadership, Communication, Accountability, Empowerment, Teamwork, Creativity, Best Practices, and Development. The Art of Alignment also takes a look at measurement of these pillars.  Powerful and practical, get your copy today!
