840 - The Key To Team Cooperation
As an entrepreneur, one of the skillsets you will develop for leading your team is to create cooperation over competition. While some healthy competition among team members can be beneficial, competition that becomes systemic can lead to destructive forces such as politics, silos, and turf wars. Instead, entrepreneurs should create opportunities for cooperation with their team to create a strong culture.
In the companies I ran in my twenties, cooperation was nonexistent and competition was rampant. At the time, I thought that dealing with infighting, lack of clarity, and conflict was just part of being a CEO. I learned an important lesson that lack of clarity creates competition, and clarity is the key to creating cooperation on a team.
In this podcast episode, you will learn the three areas that I focus on in order to create a performance culture within a team: clear outcomes, radical responsibility, and constant communication. By establishing clear outcomes, assigning radical responsibility to team members, and fostering open communication, a team can create a culture of cooperation and achieve greater success.

851 - Don't Make This Mistake in Conflict Resolution
11:47Written communication can be misinterpreted based on the recipient's state of mind and emotions. Especially for entrepreneurs, the tone we write in is exactly the emotion you are feeling at the time, regardless of if you recognize it or not. Have you ever sent an email and thought you did it all professionally, in spite of what you really wanted to say, and the person still got offended? That’s what I’m talking about in this podcast episode. By addressing the issue directly and providing a solution, conflict can be calmed and clarity can be established. Written communication often leads to more conflicts and misunderstandings compared to personal conversations. Getting on a call or video conference allows for better resolution of issues. Reading an email or text in an angry or passive-aggressive voice can help identify potential misunderstandings. Handling conflicts personally and seeking direct communication helps create momentum in business and relationships. In this podcast, you will learn a five step process to completely shift the way you approach conversations in your business. Ready for more?

849 - Protect Your Energy
15:57For entrepreneurs, it is incredibly important to maximize your energy, engagement, and presence in order to make better decisions and be more productive. The advice commonly given to entrepreneurs, like grabbing coffee and immediately starting work, can negatively impact energy levels and lead to a massive crash, and I don’t just mean in the afternoons. In this podcast, you will learn how to optimize energy and productivity, including blocking blue light in the morning, maintaining your hydration, and going outside for natural light exposure and a walk. Blue light exposure and dehydration creates massive constraint on the body. When you prioritize your energy and well-being, you will see increased productivity and a sense of possibility.

848 - Protect Yourself with Process
9:12I often share with entrepreneurs that process will set you free. What I mean is that process will protect you to the point where you have more protection than you ever have. The more you develop the processes in your business, the more you will create a system that protects your time and focus to allocate them on what will grow your business. The more process you create, the more your team will step up and free you up to focus on the strategic outcomes in your business. In this podcast, I share the system we use to develop process in your business quickly, and how creating process, structure, and routine will set you free to make the impact you’ve always known you should.

847 - The Secret to a Fully Committed Team
14:19As entrepreneurs, we often feel like we need to challenge ourselves to the absolute extreme in order to drive ourselves forward. A goal doesn’t mean as much to you unless its as intense as climbing mount everest. In many ways, this is a superpower for you in your business, but it has a significant drawback. Your team is not wired the same as you. Even if they share your entrepreneurial spirit, as a team member, they see the realities of your business in an entirely different way than you do. I recently shared this concept with a member in our coaching program. In order for your team to be fully committed, you must do one really uncomfortable thing… Pull the target closer. In this podcast, I’ll show you how to create goals that you and your team can achieve together and win. Ready for more?

846 - Microdosing on the Fear of Death
12:54As an entrepreneur, one of the most valuable skills we can develop is leadership. Growing as a leader can be incredibly difficult when we have so much going on around us that is demanding our time, effort, energy, and focus. One of the fastest shortcuts to blocking out the noise and focusing on growing as a leader is nervous-system regulation. In this podcast, I discuss how cold plunging has radically increased my capacity to lead my team. I was introduced to cold plunging by a friend who is a healer and breathwork instructor, Shane Saunders. I started cold plunging after several months of hesitation and gradually increased the time they spent in cold water from 10 seconds to a minute and a half, with a noticeable decrease in bodily tension. Through this consistent practice, my presence and awareness with my team has increased, and microdosing on the fear of death has increased my capacity to lead them well. Ready for more?

845 - Is 'How Do I Hire a COO?" the Right Question For You?
14:52In order to grow as an entrepreneur, you must go from doing everything in your business to having help and support. Especially when it comes to the day-to-day operations of the business. This process of transitioning is not just a single hire; it requires a methodical and systematic approach to permanently delegate tasks. In most cases, bringing in a high-level executive is not necessary for early-stage companies. Instead,hiring an assistant or someone who is operationally minded to document the day-to-day tasks and to delegate them methodically is the best place to start. In this podcast, I outline a process for bringing in operational help that starts with conducting a two-week time study, creating a list of tasks that can be offloaded, documenting the processes, improving them, and handing them off to the assistant. By following this process, you will feel like you have more time and more confidence in the process of delegation. Delegating tasks through this process is way more effective than trying to find someone who will fix everything in one go.
844 - The Most Important Optimization Practice
17:42Hydration is the most important habit to stay engaged, have more energy, clarity of mind, eliminate brain fog, body pain, improve digestion and sleep better. On the flip-side, dehydration is damaging and affects everything we want to do as entrepreneurs and as people. It can cause inflammation, joint pain, back pain, neck pain, brain fog, confusion, frustration, anxiety, depression, irritation, and anger. A staggering 70 to 85% or more of people in the Western world walk around with low grade or severe dehydration. It’s no wonder entrepreneurs say that they are stressed and that they are feeling the effects of it in their body and business. When you are fully hydrated, you will have a level of presence and awareness that simply isn’t possible otherwise. Our physiology needs water, and yours might be begging for more than you are currently giving it. Being fully engaged, present, and having all of our faculties is crucial to succeed as entrepreneurs, and mild dehydration can cause a cascade of effects in the human body that affect our ability to perform at our best in our lives and in our businesses.
843 - How I Learned to Love Meetings
12:14Visionary entrepreneurs have a hard time with meetings. Most visionary entrepreneurs have a difficult time with meetings because they tend to get distracted and lose focus easily. They may start fidgeting or thinking about other things they could be doing, which can make it challenging for them to stay engaged in meetings. Instead, we recommend that entrepreneurs shift from meetings to targeted interactions.A targeted interaction is a meeting that has a clear intention, outcome, process, and time frame. Everyone in the meeting knows what they are supposed to accomplish and how long the meeting will take. This can help keep people focused and engaged during the meeting. Targeted interactions make meetings easier to tolerate: By having clear intentions, outcomes, processes, and time frames for meetings, targeted interactions can help make meetings more productive and enjoyable. While it may take some time to get used to this approach, over time, targeted interactions can become easier to tolerate and even enjoyable for those who struggle with traditional meetings.
