Growth Think Tank (fka "Leaders in the Trenches")

The difference between Charismatic Leadership and Inspirational Leadership may seem subtle. A leader can be charismatic and inspire others. It also works the other way too. But Inspirational Leadership is focused more on the greater good, whereas as the Charismatic Leader is more inwardly focused on himself. Our guest today is Peter Docker who is colleagues with Best Selling Author, Simon Sinek. Both Peter and Simon are spreading a message around the world to inspire people to be extraordinary and to do work that is significant. This interview is filled with wisdom and insights on being authentic and real. Join me by listening to this episode.

Systems are critically important to your business. If you don't have systems, you are likely not as productive as you can be. This episode is not for everyone, but if you are are thinking of starting a podcast or you already have one, this will help you. I had to learn the hard way to come up with a system that worked for me. Well here it is. I share with you the step-by-step process I used to produce 3 episodes a week for 8 months. It includes the tools and tips I learned along the way. I am sure I could trim this a bit, but it works for me with ease. I actually used to think creating a podcast was hard, but after diving in, I complete it in under 45 minutes per episode.
