  • What I Taught Today

    The last time you said "I love meetings!" was probably, when? Never? Hah! To the contrary, meetings seem like an enormous waste of time in too many situations, right?

    I recently interviewed Elise Keith about her new book Where The Action Is. The full interview will be published in January, but in this 3-minute episode, I share two ideas from the book and a challenge for you to consider while in meetings in the next couple weeks.

    Let Me Hear From You!

    What do you think about the idea of meetings as anthropology and the "game changer" discussed in this episode? How would things change if every meeting was optional? What's something you do to make your meetings more valuable? Let's connect on LinkedIn and discuss! I'd love to hear your thoughts! Also, what have you been learning lately? What are you reading? Please e-mail me (show [AT]PeopleAndProjectsPodcast [DOT]com) or leave a message on our Listener Feedback Line (847-550-3747). I look forward to hearing from you!

  • Speaking Up When It's Risky

    How do you speak truth to power? In episode 236 we talked with Harvard's Amy Edmondson, who made the evidence-based case for how important it is to foster psychologically safe environments for those we lead. But most of us don't work in such environments.

    What do we do then? How do you speak truth to power when it's not a psychologically safe environment?

    In this video episode, we're joined by Jim Detert from the Darden Business School at the University of Virginia. Jim shares four principles to improve your ability to affect positive change when speaking truth to power.

  • "It's the most wonderful time of the year!" Though the Christmas songs may say that, your experience as we end the year may not exactly line up with the sentiment. In this short video, I share a lesson that I've learned in the last couple of weeks when it comes to disappointment.

    Let Me Hear From You!

    What do you think about this idea of disappointment being a function of what we put our hope in? Let's connect on LinkedIn and discuss! I'd love to hear your thoughts!

    How to Create Better Outcomes This Year

    One of the most powerful ideas I've learned in the last year is the relationship between habits and outcomes. If you're not happy with your outcomes—look to your habits. Outcomes are lagging measures of your habits. Change your habits and you will, eventually, change your outcomes.

    In this episode, we talk with the guy I learned that idea from. James Clear is the author of the powerful new book Atomic Habits, and I'm excited to introduce you to some ideas in the book.

    Learn more about James and his book at https://jamesclear.com/, where you can download the first chapter for free.

    Let's Stay In Touch!

    I hear from listeners almost every day, and I love it! How about you and I connect on LinkedIn? Go to http://PeopleAndProjectsPodcast.com/LinkedIn and send me an invite!

    Also, if you know of a group at your organization that has an upcoming large group gathering and uses outside speakers, let them know about the podcast! I'd love to work with them to help improve their ability to lead and deliver. Learn more at http://i-leadonline.com/keynotes. Thanks!
