143. Leaders as Thinkners: Conscience And Character (Series Ep. 2)
In part two of this series on Conscience and Character, host Dale Dixon and Ron Price continue their discussion on the rules of Axiology, the four ways subconscious bias influences judgment, and how you can develop your conscience and character. According to Ron, conscience is awareness of right and wrong, good and bad, while character is choosing the right and rejecting the wrong in how we think and act.
142. Leaders as Thinkers: Conscience and Character (Series Ep. 1)
Host Dale Dixon and Ron Price discuss the process of developing consciousness through Axiology, which is the study of value. The more we develop our discernment of goodness, the better decisions we can make. Ron also outlines the three rules of measuring value based on the logic structure created by conscience, ethics, and the social sciences. As we journey through the concept of consciousness, we will learn how it affects character.
141. Optimizing Strategy in a VUCA World
Host Dale Dixon interviews two of the three authors of the book, Optimizing Strategy for Results, Ron Price and Timothy Mwololo Waema, PhD. In a world that’s changing so fast, does strategy still have a role? After examining the seven stages of strategy, there are parts of strategy that are designed to be stable in the storm and there are other parts that are designed to be agile. The authors discuss this idea through the lens of VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous) and how it provides stability in the midst of change.
140. Optimizing Strategy for Results
Host Dale Dixon interviews the authors of the new book, "Optimizing Strategy for Results", Ron Price; Evans Baiya, PhD,; and Timothy Waema, PhD. Through developing strategy for clients for over 20 years, the authors realized that companies needed an applicable and practical approach to create and optimize strategy with fresh prospective. They discuss the importance of building strategic intelligence, appropriately assigning roles based on talent, and incorporating communication within the seven stages of creating strategy. Each author provides their expert viewpoint to leaders charged with catalyzing results for their organization.
139. Developing Your Thinking Skills Based on Your Talent
Host Dale Dixon and TCL Author and Founder Ron Price dive into the different types of thinking leaders should practice. Thinking is the beginning of a leader’s journey and without thinking diversely and clearly, their potential is limited. We all have natural tendencies for how we approach thinking but we also have skills that supplement our talent. Ron explains the six continuums of thinkers, the seven thinking skills, and creating an environment for diverse thinking competencies.
138. The Importance of Self-Awareness in Growing Influence
Host Dale Dixon and TCL Author and Founder Ron Price describe the significance of growing from consciousness to being conscious in making good judgements for senior leaders. There is so much noise around us that we lose the keenness of self-awareness and self-evaluation. Leaders must choose to increase awareness or it will plateau overtime. Ron provides examples of how leaders can develop their capacity to discern the difference between the degrees of good or bad in any situation.
Ron Price has been invested in leadership for quite awhile. His wisdom is both practical and motivational. I get something out of each and every podcast to help me in my own leadership journey.
