What Is Blocking Your Success?

August 22nd, 2017 by Gary Crow

We hear that some of us are traveling on easy street. Well, maybe so but probably not. I think it is fair to say that there is never a clear path to success. No matter how smart we are, how lucky we are, how rich we are, how old we are or how determined we are, there is always something or someone getting in our way from here to there. The issue is not whether we confront road blocks along the way. We do and will. The issue is what we do about them, how we get there in spite of the barriers and challenges.

In this episode, I share with you a little story of challenge and opportunity along with some thoughts about PRIDE and its role in our success. Please listen and consider the message.

Managing The Future

August 20th, 2017 by Gary Crow

We have all heard that the world is divided into those who tend toward optimism and those who lean toward pessimism. Some folks live at the extremes and others fall somewhere in-between. In this episode of the Audio Tidbits Podcast, I share with you a philosophy that suggests that it makes little difference whether you are optimistic or pessimistic, although Winston Churchill did note that given a choice, he figures that optimism is more fun. As we approach our futures, we have what I think of as a management opportunity. Whether we think positive or think negative, the management challenge remains the same. Please listen and see where you come down on the issue.

Adaptive Leadership (013)

July 1st, 2017 by Gary Crow

This is the final section of the adaptive leadership series. Some may find it somewhat difficult to integrate into their leadership practice if they do not have the benefit of the earlier sections. Nonetheless, this section consolidates the leadership strategies from the earlier sections and incorporates the adaptive leadership philosophy when making decisions and working with the team to assure excellence performance and outcomes. Understanding that philosophy rests on a clear commitment to superior functioning and an unflagging faith in each member of the team.

 

Please listen and take the adaptive leadership philosophy to heart. It becomes who you are and how you do what you do, no exceptions, no excuses.

Adaptive Leadership (012)

Misunderstandings, Power, Inclusion & Fire Prevention

 

In this episode in our adaptive leadership series, focus is on handling misunderstandings, the use of power and control, inclusion and avoiding the situation where the leader spends most of his or her time putting out fires. Sure, it is complicated but adaptive leadership is far from simple. May I suggest that you go back and listen to the earlier episodes if you have not already considered them. Once you have done that, this episode will more clearly fit into your adaptive leadership tool box.

Transactional Negotiations or Do I Have A Deal for You

May 30th, 2017 by Gary Crow

In this podcast, a Transactional Negotiations model is presented. The approach to deal making has been tested over many years and in a wide range of situations, including negotiations involving millions of dollars. The approach works equally well in the kind of situations everyone has to manage both at home and at work. For that reason, the examples in the podcast focus on everyday situations at home. Just keep in mind that the approach works whatever the circumstances, whatever the stakes.

 

Please listen to the podcast and then practice, practice, practice.

It’s All About Me

May 12th, 2017 by Gary Crow

I assume that you like me sometimes need to deal with people who drive you up the wall. When having to interact with them, the frustration factor is at the center of your world. Life for you is at least tedious and at worst stressing you enough to make you think about finding a place to hide where you never have to deal with people again.

 

The reality is that the people who drive you up the wall are not going away. They and you are here to stay. The good news is that you don’t have to let them continue to drive you up the wall. They can be brought into line and you are just the person who can handle them.

 

Let me share a few examples along with some strategies and techniques you can use to put a stop to the attitudes and behavior that are driving you up the wall. Please listen to the Audio Tidbits Podcast to get the full scoop on I Players.
