POWER CORRUPTS AND ABSOLUTE POWER CORRUPTS ABSOLUTELY. WHO SAID IT AND WHY DOES IT MATTER? [EPISODE 48]

POWER CORRUPTS AND ABSOLUTE POWER CORRUPTS ABSOLUTELY. WHO SAID IT AND WHY DOES IT MATTER? [EPISODE 48]

July 15, 2020

In this episode of the Leadersmith, I talk about Lord Acton’s famous dictum, “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” I will set the quote in the context of the letter that he wrote to Bishop Creighton and unpack the background so you understand what led to that line (and more importantly, what came after it).

If you will ever be in a position where you will hold power over other people some day, please listen to this episode. You need to understand why this phrase has stood the test of time.

TWITTER TUESDAY #3 [EPISODE 47]

WHAT STAR TREK TAUGHT ME ABOUT INNOVATION  [EPISODE 46 ]

WHAT STAR TREK TAUGHT ME ABOUT INNOVATION  [EPISODE 46 ]

July 13, 2020

In this brief, somewhat whimsical episode, I discuss modern inventions that were first brought to the popular imagination by Star Trek. Star Trek originally aired in 1966. At the time, many products that we use today were considered far-fetched, if not impossible. Sometimes, the "impossible" is only due to a failure of imagination. 

The purpose of this program is to help you become a better leader. Innovation and, more importantly, empowering people to innovate by providing an environment where people are safe to experiment (and even fail), is an important part of leadership.

A TALE OF TWO THEORIES THAT WILL SHAPE THE FUTURE. WHICH PATH WILL YOU TAKE?  [EPISODE 44]

A TALE OF TWO THEORIES THAT WILL SHAPE THE FUTURE. WHICH PATH WILL YOU TAKE? [EPISODE 44]

July 9, 2020

In this episode, I am going to talk about two competing theories that will change society. I am going to argue that one will lead us down a path to destruction; the other will lead us to the ends we actually seek—a more just society.  

Much of the hate and anger in society is caused by what we choose to focus upon. This is not a call for putting our heads in the sand. It is a call for a better method for achieving the ends that we hope to achieve.

Here are the two articles I referenced in the episode:

FOUR PERSPECTIVES OF LEADERSHIP  [EPISODE 43]

FOUR PERSPECTIVES OF LEADERSHIP [EPISODE 43]

July 8, 2020

In this episode I discuss the first assignment I give in my Leadership Development class. I ask them to find images that answer 4 questions: 1) What I believe leadership is, 2) How your boss approaches leadership, 3). What society thinks about it, and 4) What employees feel as a consequence.

While this appears to be a simple or silly assignment, when you look beneath the surface, you find that it reveals great insight into the both the nature of leadership and the students’ experience with leadership.

I will review 7 of my students’ submissions and you will see how much you can learn from this simple assignment. The purpose of this program is to help you become a better leader. If you are going to be the kind of leader that you would want to follow, you must understand how your leadership is perceived.

HUMAN NATURE, OPPRESSION, AND LEADERSHIP  [EPISODE 41]

HUMAN NATURE, OPPRESSION, AND LEADERSHIP [EPISODE 41]

July 6, 2020

In this episode, I want to cut across both business and social issues to look at the role that human nature—specifically human dignity—plays in society and organizations.

Human beings do not react well to perceived oppression. They buck it whenever they encounter it. I will talk about multiple manifestations of oppression. From the protesters to the rioters to those who can’t repeat the BLM slogan due to conscience, you will find out that we have more in common than we think.

The purpose of this program is to help you become a better leader. You must understand this aspect of human nature if you are going to be the kind of leader that you would want to follow.

THINK LIKE TRUMP (THE BUSINESSMAN). [EPISODE 40]

July 3, 2020

In episode 32 I talked about reading. In episode 35, I talked about watching TV in order to grow in your knowledge of business. At the end of that episode, I discussed the Apprentice. In this episode, I will provide the background to the Apprentice—how it came into existence, how little Donald Trump actually did in order to earn $200 million from the show, and how you can leverage your time and energy as effectively as he did.

The purpose of this program is to help you become the leader you would want to follow. To be effective, you must make Trump-like deals with your time and resources. I will show you how.

THE COBRA EFFECT [EPISODE 39]

THE COBRA EFFECT [EPISODE 39]

July 2, 2020

When the government of Delhi, India realized that there were too many Cobras, they took decisive government action. The net result: more cobras. How is that possible? It turns out that incentives matter, and people predictably respond to incentives.

In this episode, I talk about unintended consequences. Leaders must be aware that the effects of their actions are not always what they want them to be. Sometimes they are impacted by unintended consequences.

You can control your actions; you cannot necessarily control reactions. For that reason, you must think long and hard about the actions you take.

Here is the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE) article I referred to in the podcast:

WHAT IF I AM WRONG?  [EPISODE 38]

WHAT IF I AM WRONG?  [EPISODE 38]

July 1, 2020

New York City Council voted last night to cut the police budget by $1 billion (from a $6 billion budget). What if council is wrong? Who suffers?

In this episode of the Leadersmith, I review a timely article in Forbes, entitled, The Toughest Question Any Leader Can Answer Now: “What if I’m Wrong?” We apply it to business and what is going on in society today.

The higher you go in leadership, the more important it is that you make intelligent, informed decisions. I will discuss the article’s suggestions and offer a few of my own.

Here is the “What if I am Wrong?” article: https://www.forbes.com/sites/toddnordstrom/2020/06/21/the-toughest-question-any-leader-can-answer-now-what-if-im-wrong/#5abf86bc4a1e

STOP TEARING DOWN. START BUILDING UP. I WILL SHOW YOU HOW.  [EPISODE 36]

June 29, 2020

If you watch the news, you would get the distinct impression that the world has gone mad. I have heard many say that they want to tear down the system (as if what would replace it would be better or THEY would be the ones who got to build the new system).

It is easy to tear down. It is difficult to build up.

In this episode, I will talk about a fantastic example of the community building up and restoring what appeared to be an irredeemably broken and hopeless community.

This is leadership.

You will learn the lessons that allowed the helpers to help more effectively and the lessons that allowed those being helped to grow and flourish.

In episode 32, Jeff Carlucci and I talked about what you are reading and strategies to read more. I recognize that many of you still will not have the time to read, so I am offering an alternative to help you grow in your understanding of business: WATCH TV. Seriously, watch TV.

If you are judicious about what you watch, you can learn and grow almost effortlessly. In this short episode, I will discuss nearly two dozen shows that you should watch in order to grow in your understanding of business and leadership.

THIS IS WHAT LEADERSHIP SOUNDS LIKE. SENATOR TIM SCOTT ON FLOOR OF THE UNITED STATES SENATE, JUNE 17th 2020 [EPISODE 30].

June 19, 2020

I preempted my regularly scheduled podcast to play Senator Tim Scott’s June 17th  Speech on floor of US Senate. It was the 5th Anniversary of Mother Emmanuel church shooting, and Scott had been the point person on the Justice Act in the Wake of the Death of George Floyd.

Senate Minority Whip, Dick Durbin (D-IL) called Scott’s legislation “token.” Scott addresses this and other issues related to getting this legislation passed.

Please note that there is a long pause 42 seconds into Scott’s speech as he talks about the Mother Emanuel church shooting. I have placed the full, unedited speech here and I include my own brief commentary after.

June 18, 2020

The country is reopening for business. In this episode I discuss 7 ways that leaders can prepare for the post-pandemic times.

Dr. Pearson joined me in Episode 14 to discuss why no particular leader is able to solve the problem. He again provides perspective that may be helpful as we move forward.

A THIRD WAY TO ADDRESS AMERICA’S RACIAL DIVIDE.  [EPISODE 27]

A THIRD WAY TO ADDRESS AMERICA’S RACIAL DIVIDE. [EPISODE 27]

June 16, 2020

Our country is so divided right now. It is not just black and white, but a deep philosophical divide.

Race is currently the way that this divide is manifesting. One side says that racism is about what they (individually) do or do not do. The other side says that race pervades everything--that by definition, only white people can be racist, and that the system is inherently racist. This is because they define racism as structures of power, and for this reason, you hear the term "systemic racism" discussed quite a bit.

Is there a third alternative? I think there is, and Tony Evans described it eloquently in his book Oneness Embraced and the video series by the same name. In this episode, I will discuss some of the ideas Dr. Evans covered.

You can find the video series on Rightow Media and you can get a free trial to Rightnow Media while the Pandemic Lasts.

INTERVIEW WITH A UNICORN: LISTENING TO THE VOICE OF A BLACK CONSERVATIVE (PART II)  [EPISODE 26]

June 15, 2020

This is part II of a two-part series of an interview with a black conservative as he offers his thoughts on Black Lives Matter, racism as a front for other things, systemic racism, and social justice.

If we are supposed to elevate the perspective of minorities, what do we do with the perspective of the minority voice in the minority perspective? Don’t they, by the same logic, have a claim that their narrative should be embraced? 

This episode, like the previous, is completely unedited. You will hear everything that he has to say. You might be surprised by what you hear.

INTERVIEW WITH A UNICORN: LISTENING TO THE VOICE OF A BLACK CONSERVATIVE (PART I)  [EPISODE 25].

If you believe social justice theory, White people are inherently racist because they are White and hold the levers of power. Blacks’ perspectives should be embraced because they are not the dominant perspective (and therefore they must be heard).

So what do we do with the perspective of the minority voice in the minority perspective? Don’t they, by the same logic, have a claim that their narrative should be embraced?

In this episode, I interview a unicorn—a conservative Black man and I get his perspective race and culture in 2020. The episode is unedited. You will hear all that he has to say. You might be surprised by what you hear.

FREE SPEECH IN CANCEL CULTURE: WHAT YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND.  [EPISODE 24]

FREE SPEECH IN CANCEL CULTURE: WHAT YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND. [EPISODE 24]

June 11, 2020

Have you been unfriended on Facebook because you haven't subscribed to the new orthodoxy? Are you amazed when city leaders talk about defunding their police departments? Were you perplexed when the Paramount Network decided to cancel Cops after 31 years? Cancel. Cancel. Cancel. 

What is going on in our culture right now is bigger than race or police brutality. We are at a crossroads where we are either going to continue to have free speech or allow the cultural zeitgeist to overwhelm us. In this episode, I make the argument that we must be able to make arguments. We do not have to agree in order to learn from each other and work on issues that ail us. But there is a growing movement that tolerates no dissent from its viewpoint (ironically in the name of championing all viewpoints). This is tragic because if we preempt the discussion and carry out vigilante justice, we are only demonstrating the belief that might makes right and free speech will be an unfortunate casualty. 

In this episode I referenced a symposium at Harvard Law. It can be found here: Cancel Culture: Can Free Speech in Cultural Institutions Survive the Onslaught of Moral Outrage? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1tVYKfMPbcQ

What caused the 2020 protests and riots that overwhelmed the country. I will point you to research that provides an answer (perhaps one of multiple answers). I  do not claim to know all perspectives, but this psychological research has been demonstrated historically. Broaden your understanding and tune into this episode of the Leadersmith.

HOW DOUBLE-STANDARDS CREATE DISSATISFACTION [EPISODE 22]

June 9, 2020

Right now we are going through a national re-evaluation of what is considered "just," but this same thinking applies at work. preferential treatment (or discriminatory treatment) creates dissatisfaction in others. We will talk about how doubles-standards wreak havoc in law and at work. We will look at what the scriptures say about double-standards, and consider how human beings process double-standards.

D-DAY, MAJOR DICK WINTERS, AND LEADERSHIP.  [EPISODE 21]

D-DAY, MAJOR DICK WINTERS, AND LEADERSHIP. [EPISODE 21]

June 8, 2020

The anniversary of D-Day just passed. Many people didn't even notice. 

If you want to find something inspiring, step back and consider the bravery of these men who stormed the beaches and dropped behind enemy lines on D-Day. In this episode I talk about the documentary Hang Tough, the HBO mini-series, Band of brothers and the leadership of Dick Winters, the commander of Easy Company, 506 Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division. 

If you are inspired like I was, watch Hang Tough or Band of Brothers (Both are on Amazon Prime).

If you would rather read, read Band of Brothers, or read Winters' book, Beyond Band of Brothers.

Be the leader that you would want to follow.

As I write, we are still in the middle of a pandemic. Cities are burning and these events were not on our radar just a few months ago. What else could happen? Are you prepared for the improbable? The improbable has already happened. Are you prepared for the probable? If you are not, you are just being foolish.

READ TO LEAD: INFLUENCING LIKE JESUS (INTERVIEW WITH DR. MIKE ZIGARELLI). [EPISODE 19]

June 4, 2020

Today, it feels like the world is being split apart by warring factions right in our own country. I have seen many friends on social media talk about how powerless they feel in this situation. We want to have a positive influence on others, but we are not sure how to go about it. I am joined by Dr. Mike Zigarelli, author of Influencing like Jesus. Dr. Zigarelli provides an overview of his book and helps us understand his motivation to write it, some important content, and why is is more important than ever that we influence like Jesus. 

Dr. Zigarelli referenced the HBR Article Connect, Then Lead: https://hbr.org/2013/07/connect-then-lead 

You can find Dr. Zigarelli at Christianity 9-5: http://www.christianity9to5.org/

THE BEST THING I WATCHED THIS YEAR [EPISODE 17].

June 2, 2020

If you are like me, you are feeling the weight of the news. I have had a migraine for the last three or 4 days and I had to turn off the news last night. Today I want to talk about the most inspiring thing I have watched all year. It is a movie on Amazon Prime entitled Mully. Here is the link: shorturl.at/cfAMQ 

Mully was a poor man in Kenya who pulled himself up from his bootstraps and touched the lives of thousands of the poorest, most vulnerable people in his community. Mully is, in a way, the antidote to what plagues us today.
