    Giving and Culture - Purpose and Values - Success and Exceptional outcomes Episode 66 Karl Schwantes 5 Star Google Review

    Giving and Culture - Purpose and Values - Success and Exceptional outcomes Episode 66 Karl Schwantes 5 Star Google Review

    I had an epiphany while listening to this episode. 
    There is no villain in Karl’s story. He hasn’t had to overcome any massive tragedy, or Phoenix rising from the ashes. In fact it’s an unremarkable success. But a great story nevertheless.
    Karl’s story is about his progress from taking over the family business; creating a business that reflected his values and purpose; building a culture that allowed him to be in control and let go of managing; and finally having the time and money to pursue another passion.
    The conversation with Karl reinforced what I have been espousing to anyone who will listen that it is possible to create a business that is independent of your daily involvement. 
    That way your business is more valuable and you get to do the things you love.
    Intellectually you would know this. But it’s the emotional connection to your business that holds you back and the lack of a North Star to draw you towards a purpose.

    There are some gems in Karl's story.

    Focus on Others - Serve First Episode 65 Francois Lupien High Performance Mentor - How to Become More

    Focus on Others - Serve First Episode 65 Francois Lupien High Performance Mentor - How to Become More

    Francois Lupien is a dynamic coach, mentor and speaker whose experience includes successfully working with Tony Robbins, Stephen Covey (7 Habits of Highly Effective People) and as a consultant with Bob Proctor (Movie: The Secret 2006).
    Achieving excellence in everything he puts his mind to, Francois has been a Tae Kwon Do Canadian champion, a Top Real Estate agent for 11 years with Remax, and a serial entrepreneur with multiple successful 6-figure businesses.

    There were some fantastic lessons in the conversations and I think it’s one of those Episodes that you could save and listen to again and again, especially if you’re feeling a little low.
    Francois reminded me again of the value of surrounding yourself with people who are moving forward rather than standing still or moving backwards. Francois mentioned Bob Proctor going into a bar and announcing he was never coming back.
    I had a similar experience in PNG when I realised that the men sitting at the bar talking about the ‘good old day’s’ were just stuck and it wasn’t who I wanted to be associated with.
    So the message is to surround yourself with good people. Don’t be afraid to ask for help, and approach life with a “How can I serve and add value first” attitude and in return you’ll be rewarded.
    If you’re an individual looking for peak performance then please reach out to Francois. All his details are in the show notes below

    Be, Become, Then Do Episode 64 Andrew Fox CEO Cultural Clarity

    Be, Become, Then Do Episode 64 Andrew Fox CEO Cultural Clarity

    Andrew Fox has a long list of academic achievements that he is proud of however he doesn’t display them on his wall. He says he feels that it is the person, not the credentials that are really at the core of cultural clarity.
    There are so many beautiful nuggets of common sense on how to behave in a genuinely caring way. Respecting a person’s views and beliefs and taking the time to be interested in the person.
    I hope you enjoy this insightful conversation with Andrew Fox.

    Basic to Basics is a Mistake Episode 63 Damian Andrews

    Basic to Basics is a Mistake Episode 63 Damian Andrews

    As you can tell Damian has a very positive attitude towards business and life
    There are a few lessons that I think we could take away from this conversation.
    The first is that going back to basics is a mistake. What worked years ago may not work today. Although we didn’t discuss this a lot of what Damian spoke of was first principles.
    You can be experienced and not confident, and not experienced and confident and it’s knowing the difference. There is obviously risks when acting with confidence and no experience, but if you don’t experiment you’ll never learn.
    One area that Damian speak to a lot is profit. Clearly if a business is not making a profit, then it cannot survive. I’ve never met a successful business person who doesn’t understand their numbers.
    Finally, Damian mentioned being an Employer of Choice, and this is something he and I believe is a necessary position to be in over the coming years to have a competative position in the market.
    The final area, and it might be the most important one, is generosity. Damien has a very giving nature my interaction with him have always been positive he's always being generous with his time and thoughts and advice and he's helped a number of people who I've introduced him to in the philanthropic area so I have first hand knowledge of his generosity.

    It not what you did, it's what you didn't do - Episode 62 Clifford Morgan Lumian Consulting

    It not what you did, it's what you didn't do - Episode 62 Clifford Morgan Lumian Consulting

    It’s interesting that regardless of the times and the business environment, regardless of the financial, political or societal position, people are a constant.
     In today’s world we talk about Psychological Safety, in the 80’s and 90’s it was Emotional Intelligence and before that it was Management Theory.
    So as business evolves so does the development of people and one could argue that the way we lead business is conforming with how we see society and that business is a large part of how we see society. It’s a chicken and egg conversation.
    So it’s no surprise to me that the concept of an Employer of Choice is starting to become a term used for aspirational businesses. It’s becoming recognised as a way to be ahead of the pack, to gain an advantage over the competition by being unique.
    I don’t believe it has yet caught on with the majority and there in lies the opportunity.
    The majority of businesses are not yet prepared to take that massive leap forward, but for progressive and more nimble businesses, this is the opportunity to become a leader in their industry.
