LESSONS FROM THE COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME AND THE GRAND OLE OPRY [EPISODE 191]

LESSONS FROM THE COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME AND THE GRAND OLE OPRY [EPISODE 191]

October 4, 2021

I am ignorant about country music, but during a recent trip to Nashville, I had the chance to visit both the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Grand Ole Opry. I drew a number of leadership lessons (and broader business lessons) from the experience and in this episode I discuss it with my colleague Maxwell Rollins. Maxwell is the Graduate Programs Director in the college of Business at CSU and  he has owned a Mobile DJ Business, (Jay Maxwell’s Music by Request: http://charlestoneventspecialists.com) for 40 years. His DJs have entertained at more than 1000 weddings, and he is a wealth of information.

I also mentioned an article:

JESUS AS LEADER [EPISODE 190]

JESUS AS LEADER [EPISODE 190]

September 27, 2021

In this episode, I have a conversation with a former student, Adam Caplinger. Adam spent two semesters engaged in the research question: What was Jesus like as a leader? This led us to co-write a paper that we will be presenting to the Christian Business Faculty Association (CBFA) next week. We share our thoughts with you here.

Demystifying the Price at the Pump [Episode 189]

Demystifying the Price at the Pump [Episode 189]

September 19, 2021

Have you ever wondered why gas prices go up and down? In this episode, I will explain how gas stations determine what they charge you at the pump. I will explain how the price of crude, supply and demand, local competition, and most importantly the gas station’s real business model—which is not what you think—all connect to get to the amount you are charged at the pump.

For this episode, I use a number of publicly available oil charts and an excellent article about the price of gas by Zachary Crockett (Thanks, Zack!):

UNDERSTANDING AFGHANISTAN (with David Hajjar) [EPISODE 187]

September 4, 2021

In this episode, I have a fascinating conversation with David Hajjar. David has worked in relief work with the UN, USAID, and similar organizations for 35 years. He is a native of Lebanon and lived there during the civil war.

In this episode he gives us a philosophical overview of the middle east to help us process what will happen in Afghanistan as we move forward. In the next episode, we continue the conversation and we try to get a sense of how the Taliban will act as they move forward. We compare notes as we try to understand what will happen next.

In this episode, I review a brilliant argument posted in 35 separate tweets on Twitter and I view it through the lens of a well established academic theory to explain how and why conservatives view the 2020 elections.

I mentioned an article in the podcast about how the Supreme court seat was baked into the election. See the last few paragraphs of this article to understand why.

HOW THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE UNDERMINED SLAVERY AND ENABLED CIVIL RIGHTS (AND CAN HEAL US TODAY) [EPISODE 178]

HOW THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE UNDERMINED SLAVERY AND ENABLED CIVIL RIGHTS (AND CAN HEAL US TODAY) [EPISODE 178]

July 2, 2021

In this episode I want to talk about what happened on the 4th of July—why it matters. It is not an irrelevant event or a holiday of the oppressor, but the key event that undermined the evils of slavery. It enabled the civil rights movement (MLK drew upon it for authority), and if we apply it, it can help us fix what ails us today.

Leadership, according to Marshal Goldsmith is “Providing inspiration and vision, then developing and empowering other to achieve this vision.” I am grateful that the founding fathers had the wisdom and insight to lead us to a better future.

If you subscribe to the arguments of the 1619 Project and the dubious theory that the world consists only of oppressors and the oppressed, you will not like this episode. If you are intellectually honest, you might want to hear the arguments from the other side. Check out the 1776 project: https://1776unites.com/

Enrique is a former CEO of a publicly traded company. He made some unethical choices as CEO and served time in prison. While in prison, he talked to other inmates to understand how they thought about what they did and he found that it mirrored his experience. In our talk, he will share what he learned from his experience. We will talk about how pressure and small decisions impact ethical choices.

Enrique is now a speaker on ethical decisions and consequences. His message is powerful.

THE STEWARD LEADER (PART II) [EPISODE 176]

THE STEWARD LEADER (PART II) [EPISODE 176]

June 19, 2021

In this episode, I continue my  interview the author of one of the Steward Leader.

This is part two of a two-part discussion.

In this episode, Scott talks about the mission statement that every church and Christian organization in the world should use—and how it changes everything. He goes on to tell us how well-intentioned leaders get started on a path where they make moral compromises. He also discusses how to handle praise and criticism.

 

If you missed part one, go back one episode. Scott explained the difference between a faithful steward and an owner who is entirely responsible for his own results. He explained how leaders find themselves in bondage when they own the vision. And, he explained what he got wrong, as a leader in order to help you think about the prerequisites for getting your leadership right.

WHAT IS STEWARD LEADERSHIP? [EPISODE 175]

WHAT IS STEWARD LEADERSHIP? [EPISODE 175]

June 12, 2021

In this episode, I interview the author of one of the best books I have read on leadership—EVER. I am so enamored with this book that I require it in my first class on leadership in the masters program at Charleston Southern where I am a professor.

The book is profound because Scott has done the hard work of really thinking deeply about a theology of leadership. What does the concept of a biblical steward mean in relation to leadership? This thinking has impacted my life and the lives of my students in deep and amazing ways.

This is part one of a two-part discussion.

In this episode, Scott explains the difference between a faithful steward and an owner who is entirely responsible for his own results. He explains how leaders find themselves in bondage when they own the vision. He explains what he got wrong, and he can help you think about the prerequisites for getting your leadership right.

In the next episode, Scott continues this thinking. He talks about the mission statement that every church and Christian organization in the world should use—and it changes everything. He goes on to tell us how leaders start on a path where they make moral compromises. He also discusses how to handle praise and criticism.

WHAT IS THE MONETARY VALUE OF LEADERSHIP? [EPISODE 174]

June 9, 2021

In this episode I talk to Teresa Petcovic, a former student who spent two semesters researching the question of the monetary value of leadership for her final project in her masters program in leadership. I assigned her the task. She did a fantastic job researching the question. She earned an A, and she is here to reveal her findings. The results are incredible. You will be blown away by the results.

THIS MORTGAGE BROKER CAN FIX YOUR CREDIT AND GET YOU INTO A HOME IN ONE YEAR IF YOU JUST DO WHAT HE SAYS [EPISODE 173]

June 5, 2021

I am again talking to Ty Coleman. Ty is a good friend. We attend church together. He was on the last episode where he provided his top 10 reasons that people are denied a loan. Then he explained what he can see in the paperwork—how he can predict success or failure in life beyond the mortgage.

In this episode, Ty puts his credit counselor hat back on. He was a credit counselor before he became a mortgage broker. He made a bold claim that if ANYONE just does what he says, he can get them into a home within one year. He tells us exactly what needs to be done in exactly the order in which it needs to be done. If you are looking to get into a home, but you have poor credit, you can’t afford to miss this.

But I brought Ty on this program to talk about the greater implications beyond the steps to repair credit. After the steps, we talk about the impact of our choices in relation to success in all of life.

If you would like to contact Ty, email him at tcoleman@pnlending.com or call him: (610) 505-2514.

If you are looking to get a mortgage and you have poor credit, he has agreed to talk to anyone who heard this podcast FOR FREE. Just tell him you heard him on the Leadersmith Podcast.

 

Or, go to his website: Tyronecoleman.com  Let him know you heard him on this here.

Ty will provide his top 10 reasons that people are denied a loan and he tells us what else he can tell about people when he looks at the paperwork. He can tell a lot about whether a person will be a success or continue to struggle.

May 22, 2021

This is part II of an amazing discussion with Dr. Craig von Buseck.  I learned so much about Ulysses Grant and here we talk about his character, his accomplishments (and civil rights legislation that was passed 90 years before modern civil rights legislation), and how he met and overcame the most difficult challenge of his life.   

If you missed Part I, go back one episode. In that episode, we talked about the lost-cause school, Grant’s early life and business failures, his method of leading his men during the Civil war, and his formula for success.

ULYSSES GRANT ON LEADERSHIP PART I – THE WAR YEARS. AN INTERVIEW WITH Craig von Buseck [EPISODE 167]

May 19, 2021

What do you really know about Ulysses Grant? In this episode you will learn why your understanding is probably wrong.

If you are like most of us, you only associate him with the concept of the war of attrition. Compared to Lee, Grant is a knuckle-dragger in the popular imagination. But Grant was an amazing servant leader. Really. I was surprised by this amazing discussion with Dr. Craig von Buseck. 

This is the first part of a two-part conversation. In this episode we talk about the lost-cause school, Grant’s early life and business failures, his method of leading his men during the Civil war, and his formula for success.

In the next episode, we will talk about his achievements during his presidency, why it was far better than you think, and how he overcame the greatest challenge of his life just before his death.

HOW A PRISON INCIDENT COMMAND SYSTEM (ICS) OPERATIONS SECTION CHIEF THINKS ABOUT LEADERSHIP [EPISODE 167]

HOW A PRISON INCIDENT COMMAND SYSTEM (ICS) OPERATIONS SECTION CHIEF THINKS ABOUT LEADERSHIP [EPISODE 167]

May 15, 2021

In this episode, I interview Dennis Mossburg. Dennis Spent 18 years as in the prisons system, much of it as an Incident Command System (ICS), Type III Operations Section Chief. He has a rather interesting perspective on leadership as a consequence of his unique experience. You will hear this, but you will also hear core leadership principles as he talks.  

He will discuss leadership in complex situations, how to deal with inmates effectively, and how to lead Type-A personalities.

He also wrote a book, Reflections on Leadership. You can find the book here:

March 31, 2021

In this episode, I am releasing the second part of a conversation with Kirsten Ross Vogel. Kirsten is a podcaster and

She talks about the value that we bring to the table. Specifically, she will talk about feelings of not being good enough. She talks about how people pleasers are actually trying to control others, how the imposter syndrome works, and what to do if you don’t have credentials.

She completely altered my understanding of people-pleasing. I was blown away by her reframing of the subject.

She talks about the value that we bring to the table, how we minimize our own value, and how we should put what we have to offer out for others.

LEADERSHIP AND COMMUNICATION  [PART I] [EPISODE 146]

LEADERSHIP AND COMMUNICATION  [PART I] [EPISODE 146]

March 3, 2021

In this short episode, I am releasing the first part of a great conversation with Dr. Kenny Embry. Kenny is a podcaster and a Professor of Communication at St. Leo University. 

 

Kenny graciously spoke at a two-day event sponsored by the Excellence in Leadership Institute. For more about ELI, click here:

https://excellenceinleadershipinstitute.com

 

In this short episode, Kenny discusses communication and leadership.  I asked Kenny why everyone thinks that they can communicate, but communication issues plague organizations. What is going on?

Kenny explained the way we should think about communication. If you get this, it changes EVERYTHING about how you approach the subject of communication. I PROMISE. HIS ANSWER IS A GAME-CHANGER.

 

If you enjoyed this, listen to longer segments—Part II and Part III (each are roughly a half hour) follow in episode 147 and 148. I intentionally keep these episodes to a manageable size for listeners’ convenience.

HOW TO LEAD WELL AT HOME [EPISODE 145]

HOW TO LEAD WELL AT HOME [EPISODE 145]

February 27, 2021

In this episode, I again interview Jeff Carlucci. Jeff is my former colleague at StoneBridge School where I taught from 1999-2004. Jeff has been there for 24 years and he is the former Headmaster of the school.

In this episode, we are going to talk about what we talked about a lot when I worked there—leading at home. During this period of my life, I was single, met my soon-to-be-wife, and I was married. Jeff was very much a mentor to me and we discussed these things while we graded papers or worked out. I hope you can benefit from the discussion.

THE LEADERSHIP SECRETS OF RUSH LIMBAUGH [EPISODE 143]

THE LEADERSHIP SECRETS OF RUSH LIMBAUGH [EPISODE 143]

February 19, 2021

Rush Limbaugh passed away a few days ago. In this episode, I use his words to explain how he rose to prominence and become the ultra-successful conservative standard bearer.

 

Limbaugh was well-known for being a conservative firebrand, but after listening to this episode you will understand why he was successful (and it had less to do with politics than the way that he thought about himself and his audience).
