How to Improve Your Business – Fast! – in Just 7 Minutes with David Deane-spread
What You’ll Learn From This Episode:'Deadly Quad' - biggest risk in the businessApplying the 5CsEffects of high level of stress in the businessRelated Links and Resources:David is giving a free diagnostic so that you will get that clarity around your business. Go to https://metattude.com/deadly-quad-diagnosticSummary:David Deane-Spread is a 25-year veteran CEO coach and founder of Metattude.  His clients range across federal and state government, public and private companies to small & medium businesses – his favorites, because they have the most skin in the game!David honed his skills in the military, law enforcement and another discreet agency where he specialized in developing and leading covert operators. He later adapted those skills to serve as a CEO and managing director of both private and public companies in Australia and Europe, before realizing his true calling was developing leaders, because they have the biggest impact on the workplace.Here are the highlights of this episode:David informed us that his ideal client would be a business owner who has about 200 staff and want to improve their business.He says that the 'deadly quad' is the biggest risks to the business. First would be the difficult behaviors that block progress, suck energy and cause mistrust. Secondly would be the misalignment and that's wasting time, resources, and causing confusion. Then you've got poor delegation which really impacts performance and productivity. And finally, those badly run meetings that everyone complains. Which actually causes a total waste of time at disengagement.There is a high level of stress when things are not working, and people start to feel frustration and disappointment because of slow or no progress in strategy execution. Then there would be unnecessary conflict. So, the customer satisfaction turns out to be at a lower level because the people aren't behaving the way the boss would really like them to behave.They tolerate unacceptable behavior because they can't afford to lose them. So, they hang in there and deal with all the problems around them. Then they will start to micromanage because of the situation. And once they micromanaged, then they're going to really annoy people. Threats and micromanagement don't work. David’s Valuable Free Action (VFA):Business owners should get absolute clarity about the actual state of their business regarding to that deadly quad, because too many business leaders make assumptions about those areas. Where are the bad behaviors? What's it doing to us? To what extent are we aligned or misaligned? Is our delegation process working and are our meetings effective? And if they don't have clarity around that, then they're going to be bumbling around in the dark.

How to Create Time, Reduce Errors And Scale Your Profits With Proven Business Systems – in Just 7 Minutes with David Jenyns
What You’ll Learn From This Episode: Removing 'key person' dependency Applying 'critical client' flow Systemizing business if you don't like systems Related Links and Resources: If you go to www.systemology.com/resources, they'll find there a bunch of resources and one of them is the 'client flow template'. It's a PDF with the empty spaces for you to fill in. Summary: In 2016, David Jenyns successfully systemised himself out of his business, one of Australia’s most trusted digital agencies, Melbourne SEO. Through this process he became a systems devotee – founding systemHUB & SYSTEMology. Today, his mission is to free all business owners worldwide from the daily operations of running their business. Here are the highlights of this episode: During the interview, David told us that his ideal client would be a business owner who finds themself as the bottleneck in their business. They're starting to scale or wanting to scale, but they're really finding that everything needs to come through them. And that really seems to be the biggest linchpin or the thing that's holding them back from growth. The problem that they really help solve centers around the same thing, is helping businesses become more repeatable. He said that businesses and business owners must remove key person dependency, whether it's themselves or any other team member in order to make business a lot stronger and a lot more scalable. Oftentimes if the business owner feels like they're running an adult daycare center; constantly having to tend to different team members and clients when they come in. Maybe they've tried to systemize their business and they haven't failed. Business owner just loves to do everything and they think they're the best at everything. Therefore, they need to create the systems, but oftentimes they're not a system person. A lot of business owners tend to overcomplicate things. It's quite natural for the business owner to not like documenting systems, but that doesn't mean you can’t run a systems driven business. Every business should be working towards building systems, reducing that key person dependency and making sure that the business can grow without them because that's the real key. David's Valuable Free Action (VFA): David has an exercise called 'critical client' flow. On a paper,  you map the linear journey of your dream client and selling your primary product or service to that dream client. From start to finish, think about "How do you grab their attention? How do you handle the inquiry when it comes into you? What's your sales process? How do you invoice them or take money? How do you onboard them? How do you deliver your core products or service? And then how do you get them to come back?" Literally map that out on a four bit of paper. You don't use more than about two or three words to explain each of the different steps. Exercise alone can be really eye opening for determining where should you start or what systems should you put in place. Just focus on the critical client flow and you'll get a tremendous result.

Jumpstart Your ‘Someday When’ Project – in Just 7 Minutes with Kristin Swanson
What You’ll Learn From This Episode: Learning to take consistent action Handling productivity shame Taking that messy, small, action! Related Links and Resources: If you go to www.kristinswansonconsulting.com you can download the free "Make it Happen Planner." Make a plan to start taking action, breaking it down into your quarters and months and make this happen. Summary: Kristin Swanson helps people execute their “someday when” procrastinated projects with ease.  As a completion expert, coach & cancer survivor, Kristin has learned the importance of getting out of one’s own way and stop waiting until “someday” to make a unique impact. Realizing deeply that “you only live once,” she has gained perspective, tools and strategies to overcome the illusions fear instills in us. Here are the highlights of this episode: When we asked Kristin who she catered to, she told us that her ideal clients would be entrepreneurs and solopreneurs who have the urgency to turn their 'someday wind projects' into reality. She said it's important to take consistent action. Most of these clients she encountered had this feeling of "productivity shame". A feeling at the end of the day, like you didn't get to the things that you really wanted to get done. There would be feelings of regret and they tell themselves "I'm not spending my time where I really truly want to be spending my time." The problem is, they start taking all the courses, reading all the books and not implementing on a day-to-day basis. Not integrating it to your day-to-day life and just the waiting. Waiting until I feel ready, seems to be the biggest mistake. You should take action every day if you can. If there is something in the back of your mind that is whispering at you. I believe these are "soul led goals" that comes with no regrets and they're big projects that are not going to happen overnight anyway. Start small and start now. Once you get started, you'll be astounded with the compound effect and really the synchronicities that start to happen when you do that. Kristin’s Valuable Free Action (VFA): The action that I would say is to get quiet and visualize your future self in having done the thing. And then asking that future self "What are some possible action steps I could have taken to get to where you are?" and just start taking action every day. Messy, small, action!

Here are the highlights of this episode: Darrell has shared with us that he enjoys working with B2B companies that have sales teams. The problem that he sees is that these companies are setting in what he calls aggressive but realistic growth goals. A lot of companies have unrealistic growth goals and Darrell says it's really critical that businesses get very competent at setting goals that their team believes in. Most companies can do more when they get strategic about how they're going to fuel that growth. If you're feeling that tension and that frustration, it may be time to take a look at the systems that are driving your revenue growth or lack thereof. Let's look at the two drivers of growth; net new business and cross sell revenue. How many new clients can we bring on board and cross sell? What processes can we put in place to increase our revenue per client? You're going to find it's aggressive because when you get net new and cross sell going at the same time. You move from linear growth to exponential growth. Darrell's Valuable Free Action (VFA): Darrell's advice is that if you want to compound net new and cross sell, you need to have the types of clients that can buy everything that you offer, and he calls them 'ideal clients'. Those clients that can keeps coming back for your entire portfolio. Ultimately, they're the type of client that aligns with your company values that they're going to stick around. If we want to accelerate growth, we need the type of clients

It is a sort of physical sensation welling in your stomach especially when you hear somebody talking about their book or you see somebody doing something and it provokes jealousy, intrigue, or excitement. these are all kind of the same emotional callings that are prompting us to step into writing a book. And the biggest mistake that Jeff sees people make is trying to write good books when they should aspire to write interesting ones, because interesting is what captivates an audience's attention. It is very easy to write a good book that unfortunately, falls on deaf ears.  Jeff’s Valuable Free Action (VFA): The first hurdle is your big book idea.  When people are asking you what you're writing about, tell them this: everybody thinks X about a given topic, but what's actually true is Y so everybody thinks working at least 40 hours a week is what you need to succeed in the business world today. But what's actually true is you can work no more than four hours per week and live like a millionaire. So, everybody thinks X, but what's actually true is Y.

How to Build a Beautiful Business – in Just 7 Minutes with Steven Morris
What You’ll Learn From This Episode: Unifying the brand, culture, and business strategy door Importance of knowing the core belief systems of your organization Why would anyone build a people first organization? Related Links and Resources: The resource that Steve put together on is 'how to build a people first organization' and talks about the 10 principles within it. You can go to www.matterco.co/people-first  Summary: Steven Morris helps business leaders build unignorable brands, cultures, and businesses through his work as an advisor, author, and speaker. He has worked with business leaders from Samsung, Sony, Habitat for Humanity, Amazon, International Trademark Association, NFL, MLB, and over 250 other brands. Over his 27 years as an entrepreneur, he’s served more than 3,000 global business leaders. He reaches 25,000+ readers through his blog and writes about branding, culture, leadership, and the intersection between work and life as a contributing writer for Retail Observer, Wisdom Well, Business Week, Brand Week, Conscious Company Magazine, Communication Arts, HOW Magazine and MarketingProfs. Here are the highlights of this episode: Steve stated that his ideal client is an apex of two things. Talking about the size between 7 to 9-figure company, having at least five years under their belt and they're looking for a big evolution. They're at the apex of change. They want to take their business to the next level. The companies he worked with come in through one of the three doors; it's either the brand, the culture door, or the business strategy door. And the common problem that exists is typically something that has to do with the unification or integrity between those three systems. These businesses are either having a marketing penetration issue, engagement issue, or capturing and retaining customers. The mistakes Steve notice is that they build a brand and the culture side that represents the exterior of their organization without tethering that into the heart and soul of their company. While on the culture side, they tend to treat the people as more a revolving door rather than really identify what is the core drivers behind our organization.  Steve’s Valuable Free Action (VFA): Start as deeply inside the beliefs within your organization as you possibly can. Practice around by asking "What is the essence of our company? Why are we really in business beyond just making money?" and have a very clear set of answers to that.

How do you make Better Hiring Decisions – in Just 7 Minutes with Scott Drake
What You’ll Learn From This Episode: The results of bad hiring decisions Applying the "you get to" mindset How do you inspire a candidate to be authentic? Related Links and Resources: If go to www.jumpcoach.com/scaleology. We usually do 30 questions as a basis when hiring. What are the skills that people need to do, what are the pay, what are the extreme motivators that we can offer, etc. It will help people to know what do we really need and who's going to be happy. Answering those questions is our foundation in answering those score cards, interview process, and so on. Summary: Scott Drake is the Founder and Executive Director at JumpCoach, a social enterprise on a mission to make best-in-class leadership training available to everyone who needs it. He is a sought-after consultant and trainer who made every mistake when rising through the leadership ranks. After seeing emerging leaders on his teams repeating the same mistakes, he set out to find a simpler and faster way to grow leaders. When he couldn’t find a shortcut, he invented one. Here are the highlights of this episode: Scott has told us during this interview that they work with small to medium size enterprises, specifically people hiring knowledge workers.  A lot of people are just 'winging it' or not doing strategic or good hiring decisions. They fall into two buckets; one is business outcomes. Are you getting results? Is the team productive in actually delivering results that needs to be done? Bad hiring decisions can cause some of these problems. If you're having people who aren't happy, part of hiring has to be "Who will actually enjoy this work?". So, if you have an unhappy team who doesn't want to be there, then it goes back to bad hiring decisions. Number two is the process. There's some problem in their interview process where maybe good candidates are falling out. They have to be careful in not eliminating those good candidates. It's important to establish a score card or structured interview process. We're really bad in the tech world of putting people through test that aren't reflective of the work, so we created these artificial barriers. If you want to inspire a candidate to be authentic or be truthful in interviews, it should be a collaborative conversation not an interrogation. Don't put up those test or artificial barriers. Be more open to what your process is. The more authentic you can be, the more authentic they are.    Scott’s Valuable Free Action (VFA): Must people start out with I NEED; "I need someone who can do X, I need someone with X, Y, and Z skills..." it's about what I need as a manager. One you can do is flip that and start saying "you get to candidate who joins this organization, you get to solve this problem, you get to help this customer, you get to work with this team. Start to think about it not on the perspective of the hiring manager of 'what do I need' but thinking about it from the perspective of the person who's going to join your team and hopefully be happy and deliver those results and solve those problems. With that shift of mindset can really help people start to think about hiring in a much better way.

Leaders Do It & Be It! – in Just 7 Minutes with Carrie Benedet
What You’ll Learn From This Episode: Understanding people that surrounds us The metaphor of writing things down What would you do if you know you could not fail? Related Links and Resources: Carrie got this "Nine Ways to be Human-centered Leaders" for the next decade, for 2030 That's easily found at Carrie's website at www.carriebenedet.com. Another thing you can do also is email Carrie at carrie@carriebenedet.com. They're really looking for skillsets and mindsets for 2030. It is something that you can use as a tool to talk with your team. Summary: Carrie Benedet has 24 years of industry experience in creating, leading and hosting leadership experiences, programs and courses. She is a global leadership coach, dynamic facilitator and keynote speaker who shares her belief and passion for developing future leaders and teams. Carrie has a global conference presence and podcast, Thriving Matters, where ordinary ‘gals and guys’ doing extra-ordinary things in life and work share their thriving habits and stories. Here are the highlights of this episode: Carrie ideally likes to work with curious educators and leaders who are really seekers and servants. We're surrounded with people, we work with people, our relationships are mostly with people, and sometimes they are the biggest pain of our existence because we just don't understand them. if they're wanting to continue to get to know the people that they're working with so they can lead them better, within some period they will feel burnout, stress, overwhelmed, etc. and that's taking a bit of toll. And there are some of those who wants to lead but never get the opportunity because they might not look the part. They don't want to be seen at not able to do the job or an impostor. And we should understand that working together is a good way to collaborate and come up with more solutions. Working with other people helps us learn about how they see the world and why they see it the way they do. If you start to wonder, what would you do if you knew you could not fail, well basically is the aspirational view. What are you so scared of or keep locking yourself in? That's actually stop you from being limitless in your imagination, creativity, and the way you connect your relationships. If leaders and educators would use that as a question, if they really want to look into the future, that's the question they need to ask themselves. It will then open the pandora's box!  Carrie’s Valuable Free Action (VFA): Get your thoughts down; start with what you know your strengths are, then what areas you wanted to develop. The metaphor of writing it down will lead you to be able to say "I can't do this alone and I need someone to walk with me." Surround yourself with someone you can trust and you can work with.

The Secrets of Compelling Content: The Alchemy of Neurology and Storytelling – in Just 7 Minutes with Kathryn Gillett
What You’ll Learn From This Episode: The importance of human-to-human connection Create a story of your transformation The biggest misperception about compelling content Related Links and Resources: Go to www.theheromethod.com and look for whatever interests you. There are various tracks that you can dive into and there's all kinds of free stuff there. There are special reports, eBooks, checklists, and you can also try her free discovery call. During that 20-minute call, we can hone your story of transformation. Summary: Kathryn Gillett is the creator of The HERO Method … and the author of two best-selling books on the subject. Her mission is all about helping companies get more clients by talking and writing about what they do in a way that gets a “WOW!” instead of a “Huh?”. She has a degree in psychology, a minor in anthropology, and 40+ years’ experience in marketing. As a messaging, story, and content strategist, she has consulted with global companies like Philips and GE, Amazon, Microsoft, and Dell. And as a copywriter, her work has been translated for distribution into more countries than are in the UN. Using a powerful alchemy of neuroscience and storytelling, The HERO Method helps companies create messaging and content that has proven to measurably increase response, revenue, list size, and year-over-year growth. Here are the highlights of this episode: Kathryn ideally enjoys working with business decision-makers who want to increase their sales by doing an authentic human to human connection. Whether it's email, content, website or presentation, they know their content can play a key role in helping them increase their revenue. The problem they face is that they are not getting that 'wow' response and they know they're missing something. If you don't have that connection or are not interesting the audience, then the conversations' over. These folks feel frustrated because they know that their solution is awesome but their audience is not engaging. They are not able to convey the right words so that people can see the value of what they do. Whether it's a solopreneur or a team in an organization, they think that they're the subject matter experts of what their solution is about. They then feel that they're the best qualified to come up with the messaging for it. But it's like a surgeon; they can't do heart surgery on themselves. You really can't talk about it from the perspective of your audience in a way that's going to connect with them. What's the biggest misperception about what's needed to create compelling content? Well, most people think and were taught that our solution is the hero of our story, that our solution is supposed to be the center of the spotlight. But the hero method would tell you that your hero is your audience.  Therefore, if the audience is the hero, and the elixir is your solution, then your marketing materials is the mentor. Once you get that, everything changes.  Kathryn’s Valuable Free Action (VFA): Kathryn is advising everyone to create a story of your transformation. Try to put yourself in the seat of your audience and ask yourself "where are they and why are they stuck because you're not in their life?", she calls this 'the wounded land'. Your audience is stuck and it's the words that they will use to describe what their situation is. Then, look at what they are wanting or needing for, not what you think they should get to. Then, how your solution helps them get from where they are to where they want to be. So, if you put it into your audience's perspective, that's what get them interested.

Personally, he was recognized twice by Deloitte as an Entrepreneur of the Year finalist. Here are the highlights of this episode: Mark has informed us that they usually deal with 7 to 8-figure investors, stressing to them on how to create a solid, reliable income from the stock market. The programming that comes from Wallstreet or perhaps the lack of knowledge that we get from the school system, or just about mediocrity and be average. You need to go for excellence and not just median. If you're not someone who's not doing well in the market or experiencing some down times, and then over diversify, you may think diversification will protect you. But if there's big money movement out of assets, it happens to all the assets. Mark and his team has a system to help them smooth out that riot along the way. A lot of people have given up a lot of their personal choices when it comes to their health, wealth, and time. They trust a lot of those sales people that makes you seem like they're financial planners. They just give up their power, they believe that some people have more power than we do in our own money. You need to figure out a system. You got to learn that there's variables that lead to repeatable result. Mark believes in diversifying among assets but concentrating within them. Mark and his team teach investors how to target 2% to 4% in the market. And they do that by letting them create income from the stocks that they own or the stocks that they wanted on. Not just any stocks, but the good ones, the big capitalized ones, that you can use to create income into a portfolio. You can predict and dial in the amount of income and risk that you want to have. And Mark advises these folks to shoot for 2 to 4% a month.  Mark’s Valuable Free Action (VFA): It's important to get educated especially when it comes to your money. Dedicate and taking control of your financial life is the most valuable thing that you can be doing.
