Llamas: A Lesson in Leadership and Team Roles
8:56In Episode 36 of Agile Digital Business, hear insights about leader selection, and about allowing team members to self select into ideal roles. Vickie Maris, host of the show, teaches in the professional development classroom (and virtual learning spaces) on leadership lessons gleaned from the raising and training of llamas, ponies, and other livestock on her farm. https://vickiemaris.com/coaching http://dawnofpromisefarm.com Show Notes for Episode 36 00:00 Introduction to information about a leader in the USA, NASA astronaut John Glenn - the third person and first American to orbit the Earth. In 1957, he made the first supersonic, transcontinental flight across the United States. :54 The name of John Glenn is listed in Chapter 2 in the book, Why A Students Work for C Students, by Robert T. Kiyosaki. The list includes 50 people who didn't finish school. There are several presidents, authors, movie directors, playwrites, musicians and business founders and owners on the list. 2:36 Introduction of this episode of Agile Digital Business. 3:13 Leadership development program is referred to: Foundations in Leading Meaningful Change. 3:30 My Zoom call llama, Heartsong, joined me for teaching in a session of a virtual program on Leading Meaningful Change. This lesson was in situational leadership. For information about booking a llama for your next virtual training or online coffee chat: Book the llamas for an appearance -- heartsongllamasonline.com 4:07 Think about how you select leaders for your organization. 4:33 Consider helping out Wikipedia if you use the web tool as a resource. The fundraising campaign is going now, but they welcome your donation at any point throughout the year. (Click the link to donate.) 5:14 Music plays and then you hear a setup to the instructional content.

It's important to position llamas in the best role for each individual llama as they work on the trail. The ideal role for Heartsong in any scenario, is to serve as the lead llama. She selects this role if she is out grazing with the herd in the pasture or if she is working with a group on the trail. 7:40 Consider allowing your teams to self select into the roles they are best suited for. 8:00 Bev invites people to follow Vickie Maris on LinkedIn where you can hear more insights like the one she shared with her llama Heartsong. https://linkedin.com/in/vickiemaris 8:15 Thank you for listening to Agile Digital Business.

Framing the leader effectiveness theory ... 4:38 Introducing elements of leader effectiveness: awareness of self; awareness of other people (what's going on with them); situational awareness (what's going on around you). Leadership is the ability to influence people with or without authority. 6:42 "Leading without authority, to me, is a much higher form of leadership." - Pete DeLisle, PhD 6:58 The ability to make hard decisions. 7:30 The next element of the ability to lead is foresight. 7:46 Working through the what-might-happen-if scenarios. 8:06 Foresight causes a leader to develop a sense of preparedness. 8:32 Pete talks about the ethos of the US Coast Guard. Their motto is semper paratus. Their underlying ethos is: "We have to go out. We don't necessarily have to come back." 8:50 The last element of effective leadership is commitment. The three levels of engagement include volunteer, duty and reciprocity. 10:30 A question about the stage of a career at which a person thinks about the elements of an effective leader. 11:53 Ensuring that you're taking care of the folks you're working with. "If you don't have folks to do the job, frankly, the job doesn't get done." - Pete DeLisle, PhD 12:37 "We see many organizations that just drive people into the ground. They treat people as if they're expendable. They may be successful for a short period of time, but they don't last long. Sometimes we see organizations that are much more concerned about the welfare of folks, and they forget how to do business." - Pete DeLisle, PhD 13:20 "If I owned this business, how would I be handling this situation?" - a lens to use when viewing the actions of a leader. - Vickie Maris 15:45 References to the movie, and the real-live event of Apollo 13 ("One of the best movies on leadership and problem solving that you'll ever see." - Pete DeLisle, PhD) 17:30 Astronaut Capt. Jim Lovell's act of courage was to say out loud, over the air, in front of everybody, "Houston, we've got a problem." 18:15 The team on the ground had an absolute commitment to help them be safe and to get them home. 20:00 This episode is sponsored by the group coaching and courses offered through Mastermind.com by Vickie Maris.

I've included reference links to books and videos that either John or I mentioned during our conversation. 0:00 Preview of content shared by John Lee Dumas "You should be looking, with any Facebook Live, to be solving one problem. You are looking to create a solution to one specific problem, obstacle, challenge." John Lee Dumas 0:39 I welcome you to Episode 33.

"Start the Live with one intention. You have one intention that you are going to deliver throughout this 'Live.' Make it very clear in the title and description of the Facebook Live, what your intention is, and don't deviate from that. You should be looking, with any FB Live, to be solving one problem. You are looking to create a solution to one specific problem, obstacle, challenge." JLD 14:00 John provides an example of a Facebook Live about how to grow your podcast audience. He talks about a technique for keeping focus on the specific intention of the Facebook Live. 15:36 How to use your previous Facebook Lives as reference points you can provide to people who have questions about a specific topic. 16:31 For the instructor who is used to teaching in a time block such as a 50-minute class, would you break that apart in to separate Facebook Lives. John suggests breaking that original 50-minute class block in to shorter sections. 17:50 A question asked on behalf of musicians who are doing music online in lieu of concerts in traditional venues. John suggests doing a longer Facebook Live (more than 10 minutes) in you're entertaining people. 19:02 The longer you stay on with your concert, the better chance people have to stumble across your broadcast. 19:32 I give an example of the Tiny Farmhouse Concert that we were doing from the farmhouse at Dawn of Promise Farm during the shutdown. YOu can see replays in the Videos 19:44 A shout out to members of our 7-piece band, Scott Greeson & Trouble With Monday ...

It starts at the 6-minute mark in this video from the Facebook Live by the Tippecanoe Arts Federation.) 20:30 A question about uses of audio content in different forms such as the podcast, Free Podcast Course, which starts and finishes with podcast training. Look at audio content in blocks. Create one series, one set of trainings that addresses one solutions. 22:49 For authors, I talk with John about whether or not he recommends creating a podcast of episodes that summarize the book?

Pete DeLisle 13:10 More background about Yogi Berra and the New York Yankees 15:29 Intellectual honesty - you're honest about being honest. An effective leader is willing to be vulnerable.

Example: If the task is under control, you got to worry about relationship-related issues; and taking care of your folks. 20:30 We talk about a personal example of how elder care or concern for our families can cause distractions in the work day during a world crisis. 23:29 Story from the 1960s about Dave Packard and Bill Hewlett. 26:43 He mentions that the touch screen display was invented at a division at HP during the downtime. 29:40 "There are only experts on what has been.
