Leadership, Myth & Charisma

June 23rd, 2017 by Gary Crow


Thanks for joining us for this episode of the Audio Tidbits Podcast. In this episode, focus is on leadership from what may not be a particularly popular point of view. Perhaps leadership is not something real but is but a myth accepted for no other reason but that it is the easy explanation. Please listen and decide what you think about the issue.

Adaptive Leadership (012)

June 20th, 2017 by Gary Crow


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.

In the last episode of the Audio Tidbits Podcast, I assured you that this episode would return to the content you have come to know and expect. As the series on adaptive leadership continues, you are certainly offered a full plate of tips and strategies for the adaptive leader. The range from making decisions and choices thoughtfully to being prepared to suck it up and do what needs done. I think you will be pleased. As Simon likes to say, “Listen and learn.”

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.

Stuck In The Box

April 24th, 2017 by Gary Crow


We can think in the box or out of the box but actually being stuck in the box is no place for nice people like us. You may be surprised to learn how easy it is to get stuck in the box and how simple it is to get unstuck. Please listen and discover the secret strategy. I am saying it is secret only because so few people actually use it.

Adaptive Leadership (007)

April 23rd, 2017 by Gary Crow


My father used to tell me that he never learned anything while he was talking. Yes, listen and learn was his technique for adding what others know to what he knows. At the end of the day, this was the best if not the only way to get smarter. This included seeing things from the point of view of other people and never assuming that his perspective was complete or even the best view point. This and other adaptive leadership tips are here for you in this episode of Audio Tidbits in the leadership category. As Dad liked to say, listen and learn.

Adaptive Leadership (006)

April 16th, 2017 by Gary Crow


Adaptive leadership requires clear focus, faith in those who take the journey with you and attention more to the problem than to who may or may not have caused whatever the issue is. The key is focus, faith and the benefit of the doubt. Please listen and judge for yourself.

March 27th, 2017 by Gary Crow


In this episode, the adaptive leadership series is continued. Focus is on leadership as a service and what does and does not lead to leadership excellence.

8 Minutes To Success

March 26th, 2017 by Gary Crow
