    Leadership Through Clarity

    Leadership Through Clarity

    In this episode of Come Rain or Shine, Jody and I dig into one of the leadership competencies concepts I am working on, specifically leadership through clarity.
    One way I bring clarity is through the Three Buckets. The priority order I set when making decisions is self, family, and work. Taking care of yourself through health and stress management is a way to help you have enough clarity to lead through other decisions. You will also have more clarity on the behaviors you have toward your family and the way you approach your work.
    These may change over time. Just make sure you continue to have clarity on what’s important to you, and what you do each day to support those priorities. This also is important at work. Make sure to give clarity on expectations to the people that work there. High performers like clarity because it lets them know what the rules are while still having the opportunity to make things better.
    How do you get clarity on the things you need to do each day? What are your three buckets?

    Embracing Resilience to Reduce Stress

    Embracing Resilience to Reduce Stress

    On this episode of Come Rain or Shine, Dr. Deborah Gilboa, media personality and keynote speaker, joins the show to discuss the best ways to cope with stress.
    A board-certified family physician fluent in sign language, Dr. Gilboa is recognized as one of the most influential voices not only regarding stress management but embracing resilience. Equipped with a simple message, she has a knack for breaking down complicated emotions by compartmentalizing the processing behind them.
    For instance, before one can deal with anxiety or grief, one must accept accompanying senses of loss, distrust, and discomfort. As Dr. Gilboa submits, the irony of conquering stress is embracing it through resilience and navigating it with a mission focus. While you can’t shut off the medulla, you can subdue it by remembering the choices you have in front of you.

Learning never stops

Dan has a talent for turning his learning and leadership experiences into very helpful stories that anyone can consider and use in their business.

I also recommend his book “how’s the culture in your kingdom”.

July 7, 2022, episode is woke CRT. Go woke, go broke.

Extremely upset over the total garbage episode of July 7, 2022. Go woke with CRT and other leftist garbage and go broke. Unsubscribed. You chose poorly.
