Episode 173: How to Engineer Success with Dr. Ron Friedman

For generations, we've been taught there are two ways to succeed - either from talent or through practice. In Decoding Greatness, award-winning social psychologist Ron Friedman illuminates a powerful third path - one that has quietly launched icons in a wide range of fields, from artists, writers, and chefs, to athletes, inventors and entrepreneurs: reverse engineering.

To reverse engineer is to decode what works for others and learn how to apply those same methods and strategies to develop your own unique ideas and projects.

Decoding Greatness provides a new way of thinking and working, and through unforgettable stories and strategies, you will learn how to improve your skills and spark break-through ideas. And once you have learned this formula, you can apply it to anything.

According to Fortune magazine’s list of the “100 Best Companies to Work For in America,” 81 percent of workers in companies on the list report that they work in a fun environment.

Based on examples from scores of companies like Zoom, Pinterest, Bank of America, Zappos, Honda, Microsoft, and many more, this book provides clear examples of exactly what managers and employees alike can do to lighten the tone in the work environment and allow employees to have more fun at work.

With the COVID pandemic winding down, employees of all types and levels are looking to have fun more than ever before. Perhaps that is why Deloitte has labeled the 2020s as "The Era of Workplace Fun." With this book, you can deliver on the promise of more fun with your employees and colleagues!

Free White Paper Best Practices in Giving and Receiving Feedback

Episode 163: (In)Civility in the Workplace with Robin Rosenberg

Feedback is—or should be—an integral part of our work lives. Feedback provides vital information about what we need to know:
• what we’re doing that is working well,
• what we’re doing that we should be doing
• whether our performance is “on track,”
• whether our behavior is (inadvertently)
problematic in the workplace, and
• how we can get to the “next level”—whatever that may be.

We need feedback to know whether we are doing what
our position requires of us.

This guide includes tips for giving and receiving feedback along with other supportive materials.

Get 1 of 10 copies of Stop Drifting: Become the Switch Master of Your Own Thought & Pivot to Positive

Episode 157: Positive Thinking + Positive Action with David R. Ibarra

For Tom Stanley, a slightly overweight lost soul, life has lost its luster. Rather than face the daily grind of life working at his Chevrolet dealership, he’d rather sleep his days away. Just when Tom’s malaise seems like it can’t get any worse, a chance meeting with fellow car dealership owner Daniel Santos changes everything. Tall, tan, and fit, Daniel is renowned for his success and decides to take Tom under his wing. Under Daniel’s guidance, not only does Tom train to run his first marathon but also learns what it takes to turn his business into a success!

From the mind of Utah business leader and success coach David R. Ibarra, “Stop Drifting” is a story about how one man finds his way to success, both in business and in life, by following key strategies that the author credits for his own successful career. Inspired by the Brain Model principles of Napoleon Hill, David Ibarra’s “Stop Drifting” uses a compelling narrative to teach readers not only how to identify their purpose in life, but to apply that purpose to their business, create new training processes, implement new business strategies, and how to “Pivot to Positive” and overcome the debilitating influence of doubt and uncertainty. “Stop Drifting” is a story of great imagination that offers readers new strategies to spark inspiration and new ways to master their mindset and achieve their dreams. Whether you’re looking for inspiration in your business or personal life, with “Stop Drifting,” David Ibarra wants to wake readers up to exciting new ways of thinking, being, and living.

Win a Copy of Humble Consulting

153: Humble Inquiry with Edgar and Peter Schein

Organizations face challenges today that are too messy and complicated for consultants to simply play doctor: run a few tests, offer a neat diagnosis of the “problem,” and recommend a solution. Edgar Schein argues that consultants have to jettison the old idea of professional distance and work with their clients in a more personal way, emphasizing authentic openness, curiosity, and humility. Schein draws deeply on his own decades of experience, offering over two dozen case studies that illuminate each stage of this humble consulting process. Just as he did with Process Consultation nearly fifty years ago, Schein has once again revolutionized the field, enabling consultants to be more genuinely helpful and vastly more effective.
