    The Secret To Auditioning Your Dream Team and Why You Need to Start "Casting, Not Hiring"

    The Secret To Auditioning Your Dream Team and Why You Need to Start "Casting, Not Hiring"

    Today’s podcast is going to completely shift how you think about hiring and building teams.
    Dan dropped a major revelation during the conversation - instead of "hiring" people, we should be CASTING them like a theater director casts actors for roles.
    Dan and Jeff Madoff are working on a new book called "Casting, Not Hiring" and the core concept is brilliant: Don't just evaluate skills and experience. AUDITION people to find the perfect ensemble with the right chemistry, charisma and compatibility to create MAGIC together.
    Imagine judging potential hires not just on their resume, but on how well they perform and gel with your existing cast. No more ill-fitting "employees" - just an energetic group unified to co-create an incredible performance.
    Dan and Mike talked about how this casting mindset can infuse work with meaning, excitement and a sense of being part of something bigger than just a job. They explored:
    Using "box office," critics, fans and peers to evaluate talentBringing "backstage" and "onstage" metaphors to your teamCreating an environment of collaboration vs. cut-throat competitionMaking work feel like being part of a theatrical story instead of a corporate grindThere is so much insight in this vision, Mike can't wait for you to experience the "aha!" moments Dan sparked in him.
    Give the episode a listen and you'll be dreaming of playwright bios and marquee lights for your company in no time.
    Key Takeaways
    (05:40) Refusal to hire smokers and strong scents.(06:34) People's responses to service varied greatly.(12:43) Personalized casting descriptions, impactful in theater world.(16:12) HR process dehumanizes human beings, stifles creativity.(25:32) Box office critics, fans, peers, cast.(29:27) Casablanca film magic in quick production.(32:16) Changing business conversation with metaphors and teamwork.(34:56) Desire to expand stage play's potential.(38:30) Positive mindset, mental tools, theater, films, conversations.(41:19) Ai tools will transcribe and summarize content.Additional Resources

    How To Double Your Revenue By Selling To High-Value, Conservative Customers

    How To Double Your Revenue By Selling To High-Value, Conservative Customers

    If you’re a business owner or founder, Mike has an eye-opening episode to share with you today.
    Mike sat down with his friends, Kurt and Kristen Luidhardt, who have a super unique approach for rapidly growing your business by tapping into what they call "Liberty Spenders" - a lucrative market of 40% of the U.S. population that most businesses completely overlook.
    Between them, they've raised over $500 million from over 1 million transactions working on political campaigns. They've helped elect 1 president, 14 governors, and over 100 members of Congress by mastering the psychology of connecting with this hyper-engaged audience.
    And now they've adapted their system to help businesses access and resonate with these fiercely loyal buyers in any industry - financial services, consumer products, you name it.
    During the conversation, they dove deep into their 5-step process for identifying and speaking the "language" of Liberty Spenders, including:
    How to instantly analyze your existing customer base to see what percentage are potential Liberty Spenders (the numbers will shock you)The 3 positioning boxes you can choose from to authentically connect with this market - from full ideological stance to neutrality.Crafting a magnetic narrative that taps straight into the passion center of these buyers' minds.Proving your messaging before spending a dime through laser-accurate testing and focus groups.Rolling out an air-tight multi-channel game plan to put your offers in front of this massive, underserved audience.Kurt and Kristen dropped countless, incredibly valuable case studies and tactics from their two decades in the trenches. Like the beer company that did $1 million in sales overnight by hitting the right emotional chord and taking advantage of the $27 BILLION dollar Bud Light debacle.
    You're going to want to take notes on this one when you hear how much low-hanging fruit is sitting there waiting to be picked.
    Key Takeaways
    (00:00) Discover untapped markets for business growth.(03:55) Faith-based buyers: the holy grail of loyal spenders.(09:31) Timing, relevance, and strategy in marketing.(15:44) Kurt's organizational genius and leadership in business.(19:15) Accessing data leads to more targeted marketing.(21:17) Position to market, ideology, issue-oriented approach choices.(28:20) Small budget, bold message effectively captures audience.(32:26) Authentic belief, marketing to conservative audience success.(34:00) Promoted movie, turned losses into profit.

    It was one of the most fascinating conversations Mike has had in a while — all about the rise of English as the global language and how it's shaped culture, business, and even our individual mindsets.
    Dan makes a bold claim that English is the "Latin of the 21st century" and shares insightful stories about his experiences with people from all over the world who learned English as a second language to unlock greater opportunities.

    But here's the real mind-bender: Dan argues that non-native English speakers are often BETTER communicators because they instinctively check for understanding in a way native speakers don't.

ItsWhatYouSee ,

You’ve helped unlock something inside of me!

Ever since high school, I have heard the phrase, “you have so much potential,” which I have viewed as a thinly disguised way of the deliverer telling me I’m not working hard enough. These podcasts, particularly the one with Bryan Howard, CEO of Mercury Performance Group, are helping me understand that it’s less about working hard (although that’s still important) and more about finding the right alignment with values, goals, and perspective.

Specifically, the inchworm concept that Bryan described out resonated with me because I realized I may have been ahead of the curve at one point in my career but my leaders were uncomfortable with my methods and suppressed them—and therefore me. (Spoiler alert—I no longer work for them.) Through Bryan’s description, I had an aha moment that I now have the privilege of leading at least one inchworm right now and that requires a different leadership approach than someone who may still be developing their skills. I owe it to these talented team members to do better than my previous leaders and be open to their ideas, then support and advocate for them as they change the organization for the better.

Thank you for your perspective and vision through these podcasts, and keep bringing the terrific content!
