    Bonus Episode – Leading Through Crisis

    Bonus Episode – Leading Through Crisis

    Leading in a time of crisis is more complicated and difficult – especially in how we think and react. The pace, the pressure, the uncertainty, the confusion are all enemies of sound thinking. To lead effectively, leaders must fight through the confusion and uncertainty to focus on what matters most right now – and lead in a way so that their people can do the same.

    Todd Mosetter and Daniel Harkavy unpack a framework that can be applied in crisis to help you achieve greater results.

    7 Ways We Sabotage Meetings

    7 Ways We Sabotage Meetings

    Meetings are an essential part of everyone’s work experience. But unfortunately many of us have come to view them as a necessary evil. They’re something we begrudgingly schedule on our calendars and then dread attending because they often seem unfocused, unnecessary and unhelpful. For leaders looking to boost organizational culture and performance, focusing on improving the way we do meetings can be a game changer.

    The Power of Believing in Others

    The Power of Believing in Others

    With leadership comes power, and as a leader, your decisions and behaviors can have a profound impact on your team and your organization. But one power that leaders wield which often gets overlooked is the power we have to influence and develop our team members through our belief in them. And in all walks of life, from the boardroom to the classroom, research and experience have proven that people flourish and perform at their best when they have leaders in their lives who believe in them.

    Results vs Relationships

    Results vs Relationships

    Results and relationships. Too often, leaders hold them at odds with one another. Either we focus so much on getting stellar results that we neglect building the trust and relationships that are necessary for succeeding as a team, or we focus so much on relationships and making sure everyone gets along that we shy away from the hard conversations and holding one another accountable. But the best leaders know that for a team to truly succeed, results and relationships have to go hand in hand.

    When Life Throws a Curveball

    When Life Throws a Curveball

    Life has a way of surprising us. We can dream, plan and prepare all we want, but sooner or later life is going to throw us a curveball. It could be a problem at work: an unexpected move by a competitor or a downturn in the market. Or it could be a problem at home, like receiving a scary diagnosis out of the blue. Whatever you may be facing, it’s not our ability to avoid life’s curveballs, but our ability to react and respond to them well that will determine our success as people and as leaders.

Great Podcast

Great Podcast to help with getting your vision on track so others can follow. I have known Daniel for 10 years and his leadership style with his family friends and teammates is one of a kind. When he steps Into a room he changes the rooms temperature.

I recommend this

The info is both thoughtful and useful. While the production is not super entertaining (don't expect Radio lab), the recordings are high quality and the scripting solid. Daniel is a very good writer and speaker, so this is a pleasant podcast to listen anywhere. Nicely done!

Highly Recommend

I recommend this podcast series to friends again and again... and again... for its high quality content and relevance. What resonates is how each podcast starts with a relatable story like the Iditarod winner, usually from outside a traditional business environment. Then we hear from a coach who possesses both extensive experience working with leaders as well as a personal leadership track record. She or he breaks down how the concept is playing out for leaders every day, what people struggle with and how we can improve. Walking away from each podcast I have a new learning to apply and also a sense I’m not alone on the journey. Thanks, Building Champions!
