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

Have you ever thought to yourself...I wish my employees would do more than just the work that is right in front of them. I hear this all the time. I thought I would share a simple way to shift that conversation and it is all about getting your employees to do more. It is all about getting them to own the goal and own the process.

Seth Godin is an 18-best selling author and writes one of the most read blogs in the universe. Seth talks today about developing leaders. We talk about the problem in today's talent development. We also dive into the revolutionary program he has created with his team called altMBA. It is not an MBA. It also has no teachers, no grades, and no lectures -- this is no problem for the program to get amazing results in the journey of developing leaders.

Growth does not come because you hope it will. Growth is a result of the actions you take. One way to approach new strategies and new plans is to devise a test. The "test" method can change the way your company innovates and leads in today's economy. My special guest on the show is Michael Cammarata. Michael has had amazing success in many businesses and one them recently being sold to Unilever (the multi-billion dollar brand). Discover your way to "Test your way to Growth."

Do you want to develop internal leaders on your teams?

Companies are struggling to find people that will go beyond managing tasks to real leadership. You may have talented people in our organization; however, there is a serious need for more internal leaders that can inspire their people and create breakthrough results. After working with HyperGrowth companies over the last six years, I have seen this grow in need. In fact, when I talked and interviewed 51 CEOs from the 2017 Inc 5000 list, I discovered that 82% of companies see developing internal leaders as an essential component to staying relevant and thriving in today's world.

Today I share with you why internal leaders are so important and give you one simple way to start that process today. I call it "shared goals." Shared goals is a process of finding out what someone wants and aligning it with the goals of the company. See what I mean in today's podcast.

Today I share with you my interview with Chris Kneeland from The Cult Collective. Chris gives you examples and insight on why this is so important to your business.
