    Relationships in Today’s Working World – Dr John Gray

    Relationships in Today’s Working World – Dr John Gray

    It has been said, that we don't have business problems, but we have personal problems that affect our business.  And nothing can affect your business, career, and life than relationships.  Whether you are looking for one or are in one, our significant other relationships affect our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well being.  When our relationships are great with our significant other the world is a better place and seems much easier to deal with...but...a relationship that is sour can destroy confidence, slash our self-esteem, and cause great distraction.  Thankfully the world's #1 Relationship author Dr. John Gray  has returned to A New Direction help you and I get clarity.

    His latest book "Beyond Mars and Venus" is really Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus Revised edition.  Here Dr. Gray explains how our hormones affect every part of our lives.  And the activities we do whether they are work, rest, communication, fun, or sex can change those hormones.  And when our hormones are out of whack that it is easy for our relationships to be out of sync as well.  In this episode Dr. Gray takes us on the journey to understand a women's need to be heard and a man's need to be appreciated.  We dig deep into the fact that are hormones can be so out of balance that we can even no longer desire a relationship.  Beyond Mars and Venus is insightful and a huge help to any relationship or future relationship.

    Increase Productivity and Increase Revenue, Retention, Family Time and More! – Debbie Rosemont

    Increase Productivity and Increase Revenue, Retention, Family Time and More! – Debbie Rosemont

    Could you be more productive?  The answer is simply "yes".  The fact is there are things in our personal and professional lives that we could be doing differently that could make us more efficient and productive.  When we think of productivity so often we think of organization.  Yes, organization is important but productivity is more than organization.  Sometimes our productivity is affected by our environment, distractions, notifications, having bad habits, an inability to focus, or simply not knowing what tools are available to help us become more productive.  Thankfully Productivity Expert and Author Debbie Rosemont joins us on this episode of A New Direction to help you and I with our productivity.

    As Debbie will point out to us being more productive starts with our "why".  That is why do you want to be more productive?  What will the end look like?  And what is your motivator for productivity, more revenue, retaining your employees, spending more time with family, or just doing some thing you want to do?  Debbie Rosemont's book Six-Word Lessons to Be More Productive is one of those practical quick reads that will challenge you and at the same time change you.  With 100 lessons, Debbie talks about everything from dealing with clutter, to finding the right paper, to email, to when to have meetings and what the agenda should be.  Get your copy of Six-Word Lessons to be more Productive and also Debbie has provided other valuable resources for you to take advantage of:

    More Profit by Cutting Wasted Time – Quantum Lean – Sean Fields

    More Profit by Cutting Wasted Time – Quantum Lean – Sean Fields

    We all know the saying, "time is money", but most of us do not really understand how it applies to our business.  What if there was a way to measure how much money time is costing you?  Well you do not have to look any further, because on this episode of A New Direction, co-author Sean Fields introduces us to Quantum Lean (QL).  So what is Quantum Lean?  Perhaps you have heard of "Lean" basically a way of finding waste in business started by the Japanese company Toyota.  Quantum Lean is a simplified and yet specific way to find the wasted time in your business and applying specific tools in a creative way to reduce that time so that you become more efficient, more effective, and ultimately more profitable.

    Typically lean practices have been applied to manufacturing companies and corporations.  But in this episode Sean Fields shows you how you can apply Quantum Lean to every type of business, from Doctor's offices to Real Estate to Movie Theaters to even making your own Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich.  Quantum Lean will absolutely change the way you look at your business, other businesses, and even your own life so that you can be more efficient and profitable.  It is a great read, practical, applicable, and truly a business changer.  I can also endorse that you will never look at your business or any business the same after you read it.

    Please reach out and tell our sponsors you heard them on A New Direction!

    Building High Performance Teams – Peernovation – Leo Bottary

    Building High Performance Teams – Peernovation – Leo Bottary

    Now probably more than every the issue of teams has become in question.  Before the pandemic when everyone worked in the office, it was much easier to be a team since we were all sitting in the same room and face to face.  But today with the hybrid of people at home and at work teams have become...well...let's just say a bit more difficult.  Thankfully Leo Bottary is with us on this episode of A New Direction to help understand that whether we are remote or in the same room, or some combination we can still build high performance teams.  How?  Well as Leo Bottary says best..."The Power of 'WE' starts with 'ME'".  Are you "all-in".  because that is who it begins with...YOU!

    Leo Bottary's latest book is entitled "Peernovation: What Peer Advisory Groups Can Teach Us About Building High-Performance Teams"  The book is a beautiful complement of research, experience, and practical application.  The forward is by Jeffery Hayzlett and starts the book off right understanding how we often live so disconnected that we have to intentionally get reconnected if we are truly going to be successful.  Peernovation points out 5 factors that contribute the most high performance teams:

    * Having the Right People in the room who share a clarity of purpose

    * Psychological safety.

    * Be committed to being highly productive.

    * Have a sense of personal responsibility/ accountability to the team members.

    * Be led by a servant leader who serves as the steward of the other four factors

    The book is an outstanding read, you will love the show!

    Strategy – Execution – Results: Get in Gear – Sean T. Ryan

    Strategy – Execution – Results: Get in Gear – Sean T. Ryan

    Whether it is business or life you probably have some sort of strategy, but is that strategy producing the results that you had hoped for?  So what is the problem?  Is it the strategy...maybe, but probably not.  When it comes to getting the results that you want the biggest issue may be your execution.  Meaning that everything is in the right place, you have a good plan you just are not doing the behavior necessary to see it through.

    So what is interfering with execution?  Well, in this episode of A New Direction, world renown consultant and coach Sean T. Ryan CEO of Whitewater Consulting joins us to talk about the 7 gears that need to be executed to get from strategy to results.  You are going to love Sean and you are going to love his book..."Get in Gear".

    If you are not seeing the results that you want in your life, career, or business, chances are one of your gears needs a cleaning, a little oil, maybe it's a little wobbly, or you may need to redo the whole gear.  So what are the 7 gears?

    * Right, Right, Right

    * Align the Architecture

    * Culture of Communications

    * Result Oriented Goals

    * Visible Score Card

    * Critical Performance Drivers

    * Follow Up/Follow Through

    "Get in Gear" is an excellent read and will get you on the right track to ensure you have the right strategy, the you are following through on your execution, and that you achieve the results you are looking for.  Get in Gear is available in bookstores everywhere I highly recommend it!
