    How to Manufacture Subjective Well-being | Tom Nash

    How to Manufacture Subjective Well-being | Tom Nash

    It’s one thing to survive a life-threatening illness, it’s another to thrive thereafter. Tom Nash had both his legs and arms amputated at the age of 19, the result of contracting the deadly Meningococcal Septicemia. Not that he let that stop him from achieving his goals for life. Today, he is a successful Australian DJ, a business entrepreneur, and an in demand speaker who has engaged audiences worldwide including nearly 3 million people who have viewed his TEDx Talk: The Perks of Being a Pirate.

    In this episode, Tom shares his story of perseverance and how he learned to manufacture his own state of wellbeing and happiness as he relearned how to walk, play music, and pursue his dreams. Tom tells us why breaking his rehabilitation into steps and celebrating those small wins along the way was key to maintaining a sense of progress and control. He also shares humorous stories about differences between how young boys, girls, and adults interact with him in public.  Ultimately, Tom doesn't wish to be pitied or solely provide fleeting inspiration, but rather strategies others can use to enhance their own wellbeing.

    Curve Benders: Relationships that Dramatically Change our Destination | David Nour

    Curve Benders: Relationships that Dramatically Change our Destination | David Nour

    On this episode we talk to David Nour, one of the world's leading experts on strategic business relationships. David introduces us to the concept of "Curve Benders" which are business relationships that dramatically influence our growth and development from a linear path to an accelerated "J" curve.

    David discusses a 7 step process on how to meet your own "curve benders" as well as how to cultivate those relationships. We discuss the future of work and how adaptability and strategic business relationships are key to maintaining relevancy. David also helps us identify ways to quantify our current relationships in order measure how beneficial they are in taking our next best step as well as how to politely decline invitations to collaborate or meet.

    Born in Iran, David Nour immigrated to the U.S. as a teenager with $100, limited family ties and no fluency in English. He found that in Iran, as well as in other parts of the world, it's customary to build relationships before doing business, but in the U.S., the opposite is true. This led him to become fascinated with building strategic business relationships, and became the foundation of his first book. Nour is internationally recognized as the leading expert on strategic business relationships. The author of ten books, including best-sellers CO-CREATE (St. Martin’s Press) and Relationship Economics® (Wiley), as well as his newest book, Curve Benders (Wiley, April 27, 2021), Nour serves as a trusted advisor to global clients and coaches corporate leaders and rising entrepreneurs. He is an adjunct professor at the Goizueta Business School at Emory University, was named to the Thinkers50 Radar Class 2021, and Global Gurus Top 30 Leadership Professionals lists.

    Juliet also describes 4 thieves of our time which are  actually assets run amuck:  drive, excellence, information, activity.

    How to Get Customers to Come Back Again and Again | Shep Hyken

    It's fitting that Shep Hyken came back to our podcast since the name of his new book is "I'll Be Back. How to Get Customers to Return Again and Again." In this episode, Shep talks about the relationship between a good customer experience and a good employee experience and cites the golden rule as "Do unto employees as you would want them to do unto customers."

    Shep also gives reasons why he believes we should be measuring behaviors above happiness and examples of ways in which managers were able to fit employee customer services training into small windows of time. We also discuss how both nothing and a lot of things have changed in the area of customer service and how companies can provide the best service by training customers to navigate the experience themselves while being there to solve problems if they exist.  Shep also gives his reasons why you would want to terminate a customer if the relationship is not working out.

    Shep Hyken is a customer service and experience expert and the Chief Amazement Officer of Shepard Presentations. He is a New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author and has been inducted into the National Speakers Association Hall of Fame for lifetime achievement in the speaking profession.
