    “Win at work and succeed at life so you don’t have to throttle back your professional ambition, but you also don’t sacrifice your personal priorities.” - Mike Hyatt
    Joining me on The Chris LoCurto Show today is long-time friend and founder of Michael Hyatt & Co, Mr. Mike Hyatt! Today we’re talking about Mike’s new book, Win at Work and Succeed at Life: 5 Principles to Free Yourself From The Cult of Overwork. (2021 Amazon Affiliate Link)

    I know you’ll be encouraged by today’s episode as we explore what Mike calls “the double win.”
    Grace and peace,

    406: What Good is a KRA?

    406: What Good is a KRA?

    Hey business owners and leaders, we’ve got what you need!

    You need a tool that helps foster greater accountability, clearer communication, and the results that you expect to see in each role on your team, without members being hounded, manipulated or controlled.

    On today's show, we're discussing the top tool that we use to make all our teams successful.

    As business leaders and owners, we know you want to see RESULTS from every position you hire! But, until team members understand AND take ownership of their roles, the results will be poor and sporadic.

    A KRA is a clarifying document that details the areas of responsibility and results expected for every position on your team. It helps every player take responsibility for their part of the whole strategy.

    On this episode we answer YOUR QUESTIONS about KRAs, and walk you through the results that you can expect by implementing this tool. But, first, here are some things for you to consider:

    When team members accept responsibility for their roles, the responsibility stays where it should and the underlying tasks get accomplished. Without the KRA, the opposite is true - responsibility spills over on others... Or the leader takes it back upon themselves... Or tasks just don’t get done.

    What do TEAM MEMBERS experience without a KRA?
    Wasted time and efforts
    Lack of communication
    Fog of confusion
    Lack of clarity
    Frustration

    What do LEADERS experience when there are no KRA’s?
    Lack of communication
    Lack of accountability
    Missed expectations
    Wasted resources
    Wasted money!

    DOWNLOAD
    We’ve got a KRA template for you to download, so you can see exactly what this looks like.

    LIVE EVENT
    We’re going to coach you through the KRA creation and implementation process at our Next Level Live Event in Nashville, TN on April 28-30th.

    If you’re not getting the results you want with your team, you need to be at this event.
    Bring your key leaders and the job descriptions of key roles to work on at the event!

    TESTIMONIES (from actual clients)

    Jeffrey said, We loved the KRA retreat, it was a shot in the arm in motivating us to keep following through with the KRA’s and to keep them updated.

    Joe said, There’s nothing more important than defining the outcomes of each of your team members’ roles. The KRA retreat focused on just that, giving my team and I the space and guidance to put our vision to paper, defining the outcomes we need for each team member to be successful.

    Matt said, It was great to be there. Probably better yet to have the amazing freedom to bring two friends that were needing direction and encouragement and immerse them in the culture. Thanks for that!

    405: You Don't Have As Much Willpower As You Might Think

    405: You Don't Have As Much Willpower As You Might Think

    405 | You Don't Have As Much Willpower As You Might Think

    Willpower is a limited resource that’s easily depleted. What can you do to replenish it? What fuels the self-control and gratification centers of the brain?
    Today on the show, you’ll discover what makes willpower tick, how it gets depleted and what you can do about it! But, consider this as we get started:

    Learning what my true worth is, learning how to actually handle situations when my worth is tanking, learning how to handle situations when I'm struggling with something, learning the tools to actually walk through those situations. That's what's going to change you, that's what's going to help you.

    When you lose self-worth, you are way more likely to lose willpower!
    When you are strong with your self-worth, your willpower is strong.
    When you know your worth, then you don’t have the same reactions - cognitively - to situations that would normally deplete your willpower.

    You may not have as much willpower as you might think, but you do have deeper resources to strengthen your resolve! Consider these things as you move through your day.

    Choosing joy helps to improve your mood, which increases your willpower. The right motivation can help us persevere, because it allows us to endure suffering.
    Where are you wrestling with a lack of worth today? Where can you start choosing joy instead of complaining?

    404: Replacing The Negative Influences In Your Life With The Right Ones

    404: Replacing The Negative Influences In Your Life With The Right Ones

    404: Replacing The Negative Influences In Your Life With The Right Ones
    What you don’t replace may come back to haunt you!
    Fact: we are creatures of habit.
    Our habits, thought patterns, and relationships all carry a massive influence on our hearts and minds. The negative influences in our lives must be replaced, not just edited or deleted.
    In today’s episode, we’re going to discuss how negative influences from these seven areas may be polluting you. Consider these the Seven Deadly Influences you need to get rid of right away!
    They could be holding you back from a healthier you by keeping you toxic! Learning to unfollow, mute and put up boundaries is important, but then think about where to redirect your attention.

    Internet Conflict
    News Feed
    Social Media
    Toxic Relationships
    Negative Self-Talk
    Entertainment Streams
    Fun Distractions

    Proverbs 4:23 says, “Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life.”
    Ask yourself these questions about those 7 areas of influence:
    How are you guarding your heart from the negative influences in each of these areas?
    Where have patterns and habits developed that are having a negative effect on you?
    What are you putting in place to push out the negativity with things that are positive?
    Remember: what you don’t replace will come back to haunt you!

    403: The Healthy Vineyard

    403: The Healthy Vineyard

    403: The Healthy Vineyard

    Have you set yourself up for success this year?
    Most of us are really good at executing the exterior goals of our careers and passions, but few of us dig into the interior regions of life in order to assess where we’re stuck and need to grow.

    Coming off of a GREAT quarterly retreat last week with our Mastermind group, I’m excited to share with you some of the transformational material we covered.
    More than 30 clients from all over the country came together at our office event space to walk through one of our signature lessons that we call The Healthy Vineyard.

    If you’re already familiar with Next-Level Life, then you understand what I mean when I say things like “digging into your root-system”, identifying surface level responses, toxic behavior and - by contrast - what helps you cultivate a healthy vineyard.

    If you want to explore more of the Wine and Vine elements, then you can go to a previous podcast episode #198 entitled, What You Have In Common With Wine.
    But in this episode, we’re going to dig into WHAT MAKES YOU HEALTHY so we can get the weeds out of the garden of your life so you can HAVE A REALLY HEALTHY YEAR!

    Resources and Links:

    BLOG POST: https://chrislocurto.com/403-the-healthy-vineyard/

    DOWNLOAD: https://chrislocurto.activehosted.com/f/4

    To help you get (and stay) healthy, we’re including a FREE life-oriented, goal-setting download to help you dig deep into your personal health. Don’t miss this opportunity, while we’re still early in the year, to really set yourself up for success!

    This Healthy Vineyard Workbook will walk you through A STEP-BY-STEP PROCESS of finding balance in every major category of life - your Wheel of Life. You’ll assess your status, determine what’s healthy and what’s not, then create a tailored action plan.



    QUOTES

    "The reason we fail at goal-setting and fulfilling new year’s resolutions is because we don’t set ourselves up for success first by gaining good perspective before reaching for the goals."

    401: The Leadership Success Path

    401: The Leadership Success Path

    401: The Leadership Success Path
    We see a lot of business leaders and owners throughout the year. Many get stuck not knowing where they are in terms of a leadership process; the majority don’t know what to focus on next.
    Have you ever been there? You get thrown a book that has a 30,000 ft view of what leadership looks like, but there’s nobody coaching you along a path, no one walking with you step by step.
    Where there’s no comprehensive process, there’s usually something in the organization NOT getting addressed, and it causes leaders to stay at the same level - stuck in the very same rut.
    As a business leader, you’re probably looking to create change, and you’re asking things like:
    “Where should I focus that change”,
    “Where are my energies best spent?
    and “What should I be doing next?”
    In this episode, you’ll discover our Leadership Success Path as I unpack three crucial steps that every leader needs to take if they’re going to succeed in business. Where are you on the path?

Love the concept of QBQ and thank you for the time in recognizing what our responsibilities are as individuals to impact our direct reports, children and peers. What or how can I be a better person in any situation?
