Episode 133 How Leaders Build An Online Brand with Dave Gambrill

July 9, 2019

As leaders our brand is important. Even if you work for an organization and aren't an entrepreneur, your online presence says a lot about you, your beliefs and the value you add to the world. 

I believe all leaders should be aware of this and learn how to add value while building your own personal brand in the social media stratosphere. 

However, I am a rookie and still learning. My guest Dave Gambrill is a pro and I have watched him over the last few years create a huge presence and brand and go from someone like me, to sharing the table with major leaders in the marketplace due to his consistent message and brand building. 

In my conversation with Dave, he shares with us what we should be thinking, doing and building to create our future network and net-worth. 

If you are overwhelmed by all the resources our there, Dave is one of the best resources I know to learn what is best in class. He has a guide for you at www.gambrill.com/leadup you can download as a gift for listening.

Also you can find Dave in his Private Digital Media Mentoring Facebook Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/dmmdavegambrill/

 

Episode 132 5 Principles of High Performance Growth Teams

Episode 132 5 Principles of High Performance Growth Teams

July 8, 2019

We are on the downhill side of 2019, the downhill side of this decade, What are you going to do? What are you going to do to set yourself up for success in these next six months? What are you going to do to set yourself up for success in 2020 and beyond?

It's not what you do then, it's what you do now to begin to set yourself up for success. I mean, it's just like our health, we can't begin to take care of our health when it's too late, right, when we get the bad health report?

We've got to begin to take care of it now.

And The same thing goes with leadership. When your back is against the wall, It's too late to try to take care of it. You've got to begin to grow, you've got to begin to take care of some things today. So that you're prepared for the future.

I remember John Wooden I learned from him, you know, John Wooden was the great basketball coach of 13 NCAA college basketball titles back in the 70s. he said, you don't wait for the moment to get ready, You Get ready so you're fully prepared when the moment arrives.

The same thing about leadership, you don't wait until your back is against the wall to get ready. You don't wait until it's too late to start growing. You don't wait until your turnover is so high that you start to learn how to be a leader, you don't wait until the company starts letting people go that you decide to be a great leader.

You just be a great leader; that way, when the company is  going to do a reduction in force, they're going to keep their best, They're not gonna let the best go. Make yourself the best. And if they do end up letting you go, Guess what you're prepared for the next role or the next company and the next opportunity, you've got more to offer them as well.

Today, we're talking about five principles of high performance growth. And in any any type of growth, it starts with great principles, right? You've got to have some great foundation, some principles that guide your processes in your decision making in the hiring and the the people you bring onto the team.

Episode 131 The Dangers of Independence in Leadership

June 28, 2019

Are you a solo flier?  Did you ever say when you get to a certain level, you'll never lead a certain way?

You know, when I get that title? Or when I get that position? I'll never do this, or I'll never do that. Or I'll never treat people this way or that way.

Has that been you? Have you ever said that? I know I did. I know I've worked with leaders who have said that. Yet they do it. And t they get out on an island by themselves. The most dangerous place, the most dangerous place you can be as a leader is on an island by yourself.
