In your lifetime you've probably experienced the power of a movement. Maybe you saw it on the news in a political movement. Perhaps in a cultural shift. When a majority of people with a singular focus take power, amazing things can happen. But, have you ever thought about how to leverage the power of a movement in your work and life? If you haven't…
 
It's easier to be attached to the things we know, even when they aren't good for us than to deal with the fear and discomfort of the unknown. At least it used to be for me. In this episode, I share my experience about being attached to the wrong emotions, the ones that weren't serving me because I could anticipate them. And, it's when I broke free …
 
One of the most important aspects of any business is your customers. Not just getting customers, but keeping them. In fact, most failed businesses spend a lot of time and money on acquiring new customers but not a lot of energy on keeping them. Showing your customers some love is a great place to innovate as well. The element of surprise and deligh…
 
Do you ever feel like you are having an internal war between your head and your heart? Between moving forward and standing still? Between your comfort zone and your growth zone? If the answer is yes, you are not alone. So many of us struggle with this continual battle between what we know we want to do and what we actually do. In my twenty-five plu…

Do you look at kids and think, "they are so naturally creative?" Yet somehow as adults, we've lost our way, and most of us would describe ourselves as missing the creative bone that only the select few possess. Interesting that as kids we all have it, yet as adults-only a select few do. Why is this? Well, it's because creativity, or as we say here …
 
Today's episode is going to help you avoid being derailed by difficult people who stall or slow down your work. Whether you like it or not, you will lead, manage or be on a team with difficult people. Aside from being annoyed, what do you do? What I've learned in my 25 plus years of work is that what you can't do is ignore them. In fact, as an inno…
 
Have you ever looked at someone who risks it all for big rewards and thought, "wow, I wish I was more of a willingness to take risks like them. I tend to play it safe!" Here's the thing, risk isn't an all or none skill, it's actually a muscle you build over time. Now, if you are thinking, I don't need more risk in my life, I'd like you to be open t…
 
A lot has changed personally and professionally in the past year. New technology has automated many functions humans used to be responsible for, the internet gives people instant access and global choice for just about anything, and teams have become virtual, as a way of doing business. In order to stay on the forefront of these massive shifts, it'…
 
Do you ever feel like you are working hard, maybe even harder than you ever have, yet the results don't show it? It's as if your productivity is through the roof, but the outcomes are still lackluster. My guest today, Roy Redd, shares with me a concept he lives by called "Workability." In short it's finding what works, what gets results, and doing …
 
How much time do you waste trying to convince your doubters your ideas are right? Do you know how to facilitate a meeting or conversation to get the best results? Are all those meetings you and your team attend actually moving the business forward? What would it take to actually build a culture of innovation where people know how to connect and col…
 
Soft skills are not your technical skills that show up as a bullet point on your job description. They are the interpersonal or behavioral skills you actually rely on to do your job, live life, and get ahead. The ones that are hard to track but are equally, or more important. In fact, I'd argue that the technical skills you rely on to do your job a…
 
Do you ever feel like you are not just working in your strengths, but actively against them? You are not alone. So many people feel that way. Maybe in school we were told we had to think and work a certain way, and that way didn't match our way. Or maybe a boss or work environment didn't allow you to bring your best self. Or perhaps you have been c…
 
Did you know only 10% of distractions come from your external world? The dings, the pings, the beeps, the pop up messages...only 10%. As Nir Eyal and I talk about, the real distractions come from what he calls internal triggers, or uncomfortable emotions we are trying to avoid. That's why we are busy, but not productive. Why we avoid the heavy lift…
 
You may be able to do it alone, even get pride out of being a solo winner, but I promise you that you are white knuckling it way more than you need to, and you have major blind spots. You are most likely leaving opportunity and even greater success on the table without knowing it. One of the most important things you can do to go further, faster in…
 
Imagine for a moment that your mind is like the music playlist on your phone. Yet in this case, you didn't add the songs. They were put there by your parents, siblings, bosses, neighborhood, teachers, etc. As my guest, Elan Divon shared with me, this playlist becomes your beliefs and behaviors, and it's often what leads to self sabotage and limitin…
 
In a culture that rewards busyness, many of us have lost sight of how important it is to pause. Science and studies show that pausing is actually one of the most productive things you can do. In fact research shows that for optimal performance we need both times of intense work and times of recovery. In this episode I cover how the culture of busyn…
 
Today I'm answering three big questions. First, what's going on in the world that makes the skill of innovation so essential and sought-after? Second, why have your efforts to be an innovator or drive innovation in your clients or teams lead to lackluster or even failed results? Finally, what is this Everyday Innovator method and why does this fres…
 
We glorify being busy and declare anyone that isn't double booked and overworked a slacker. But what if being busy isn't only the wrong benchmark of success, what if it's also working against you? Author of Done By Noon, Dave Ruel, and I talk about how to reframe your mindset around productivity and being busy, how working hard and working smart ar…
 
As I sit here on this Thursday afternoon I find myself more exhausted than usual. At first I thought it was the heat and a few late nights, but as I started to reflect I realized something else was going on. This week has been full of tasks that require building and creating new things. It's required developing proposals for new clients, scripts fo…
 
It sucks to be stuck. You can be stuck in a big way, spinning your wheels and having no idea what to do next, or feeling so foggy you can't even see what's next. Or, you can be stuck in a lot of small ways, or in parts of your work and life. This usually shows up as spinning your wheels, having a sticky problem continually rearing its ugly head, fe…

I challenge you to do three simple tasks a day, for seven days, and watch how you transform into an Everyday Innovator. I promise if you do what I talk about in this podcast, your beliefs, behaviors and actions will all align with your ability to innovate. Here's the thing, the brain's number one job is to confirm what you already believe. The brai…
 
I find myself constantly saying to people, "I can't believe it's June already." Now that we are just about half way through the year, it's time to do some reflecting. I sat down and thought about the big lessons I learned in 2021, or lessons that popped back up in my life. Some of these are personal, some are professional, some are super tangible, …
 
Initiative fatigue, lack of buy-in, an unwillingness to change. This is what I hear from frustrated leaders when they call me to discuss why their innovation efforts are not getting results, or outright failing. You've probably experienced it: a new initiative to get innovation off the ground, an innovation process that you are now supposed to foll…

Does it ever feel as if your efforts to be an innovator keep meeting extreme resistance?

Or perhaps you are just tired of playing a mediocre game and want to dia…
 
Do you remember playing tug-of-war as a kid? It was a game of two teams holding on to either side of a rope, and each team had to try to pull the other over a line down the middle. When it comes to change and innovation, that’s exactly what happens individually, in our teams, and in our organizations – it’s a constant tug-of-war between the resisto…

Have you ever held two conflicting thoughts? On one hand you believe you are a strong leader, yet on the other hand you believe you aren't worthy. Those conflicting thoughts, or beliefs, can cause anxiety, frustration, anger, discomfort and even self-sabotaging behaviors. It's called "cognitive dissonance" and it's the subtle sabotager keeping you …

My guest, Will Moore, is out to create a momentum movement and …
 
Vulnerability is often cited as a key factor in deeper connections and open communication.

Do you have a problem that keeps rearing its ugly head? No matter how many times you solve it, it just won't go away?

The issue you face isn't the problem or the task, it's the size…
 
One of the things we don’t talk enough about is money. However, money and financial intelligence can push us forward or hold us back from reaching our goals. Why? Money and the way we think about money tends to control and cloud our emotions, as well as influence how we go through the day, and having a handle on it can help open up new paths for yo…
 
There are a million change models out there...and most of them don't work. As I discuss in this quick rant podcast, they fail because of two simple reasons. First, "models" are point-in-time exercises, and second, they are missing the most important element, the contribution roadmap. This is the why, what and how your teams contribute to the change…
 
What do the Ironman Triathlon and life have in common? A lot, it turns out, and there are so many lessons we can take away from the Ironman competition that also apply to life.

Drew Munro is someone with a passion, and a vision of disrupting the food category but not in the way we're used to — all because he saw a need in the market that wasn’t being fulf…
 
Why do the innovation & creativity "experts" make it seem like being in "flow" or achieving "peak performance" is a magical accident that only a few ever access? Because it makes them feel special and worth their overly priced fees. But they aren't worth it and flow isn't a magical accident. In fact it's something you can activate any time you need…
 
There’s no denying that Amazon has changed the way we live. It’s not just about the ease and convenience of buying things on Amazon that I’m talking about — Amazon, as a company, has completely changed our perceptions about shopping online, and elevated customer expectations. That’s why it’s so important for us to understand Amazon, regardless of w…

I've learned the hard way…
 
Have you ever received a piece of advice from a mentor that was so profound that it stuck with you for years?

In my career, I’ve come across three of those pieces of advi…

One question I keep getting from a lot of people is, How do I get people to listen to my ideas? And the interesting thing is that these people are coming from two very different ends of the spectrum. On the one hand, I have people who are struggling with being seen as too young or inexperienced, and so their ideas aren’t being taken seriously. On t…
 
Somehow, kids just have a way of being blunt, direct and insightful without even trying. This podcast is a treat and full of value bombs. My sons and I often sit on the couch and chat before they go off to school. Sometimes what they say is so wise beyond their years that I started recording them. I don't often share or bring my kiddos into my work…
