My interviewees also share the most significant challenges they are facing today and how they are moving through them creatively to serve their residents, visitors, and partners alike. I'm excited to share these mini-interviews, and I hope you find them as fascinating and insightful as I did. In this episode, you'll hear from these extraordinary leaders: Louise Bishop – President of South County Tourism Council in Rhode Island Olivia Novak – Marketing Manager with Discover Lancaster, Pennsylvania Paul Nursey – CEO of Destination Greater Victoria, BC Racene Frieda – CEO of Glacier County Regional Tourism Commission in Montana Rachel Ludwig – CEO of Tourism Canmore Kananaskis in the Canadian Rockies Rachel Riley – Associate Vice President of Communications for the Valley Forge Tourism and Convention Board Rebecca McKenzie – President and CEO of the Culinary Tourism Alliance Sarah Hughes – Vice President of Marketing and Communications at Visit Norfolk Scott McCray, President, and CEO of Fairbanks Alaska Stuart Butler – Chief Marketing Officer with Visit Myrtle Beach Stories of Inspiring Partnerships at the Destinations International 2022 Annual Convention I love coming to the Destinations International Annual Convention because it provides a unique opportunity to come together as marketing specialists, network, share ideas and discuss our wins and our challenges. I asked each of my guests this week to share the word that they would use to describe the convention, and each of these wonderful leaders shared a word or idea that really encompassed the experience of attending the event, from ‘opportunity' to ‘camaraderie.' I was also excited to learn about the creative partnerships all of the destinations represented in this show have built to move forward. Louise Bishop of South County Tourism Council Lousie joins me to share why she feels it is so important for her destination to partner with environmental and coastal resource management organizations, in addition to the cities and towns that make up the South Country region. She also discusses techniques she uses to get all of the stakeholders in a project on the same page and going in the same direction. Olivia Novak of Discover Lancaster Olivia is one of the Destinations Internations 2022 30 under 30 honorees, and she joins me to discuss the key partnership her organization started with the Lancaster Farmland Trust, food producers, and local restaurants to promote an amazing restaurant week in Lancaster that became a win-win for everyone and enabled all of the partners to realize their goals. Paul Nursey of Destination Greater Victoria, BC Paul and I talk about Destination Greater Victoria's goal to lead the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic in a sustainable way. He shares the details of the Impact Sustainability Conference that his destination launched and how and why it has become a leading international conference. Racene Frieda of Glacier County Regional Tourism Commission Racene tells us all about the challenges her destination faced during the COVID-19 pandemic when a whole new type of visitor discovered the state of Montana as a desirable destination and how the solution to managing these unexpected tourists resulted in new public-private partnerships that have lasted beyond the pandemic. Rachel Ludwig of Tourism Canmore Kananaskis Rachel shares how her DMO in the Canadian Rockies started up as a new destination and why forming a new destination marketing organization intent on building a solid foundation of trust in the community and partnerships takes time, effort, and skill. She also shares why her words to describe the Destinations International Convention are ‘opportunity' and ‘connection.' Rachel Riley of Valley Forge Tourism and Convention Board Rachel highlights the importance of partnerships in destination marketing and shares how a collaboration between the County Commerce Department, Chambers of Commerce, and the Tourism Office created the ‘Make It Main Street' campaign and hashtag as a way to help the community out of the pandemic and boost local businesses. Rebecca McKenzie of the Culinary Tourism Alliance Rebecca shares how the Culinary Tourism Alliance, a not-for-profit Destination Development Organisation based in Toronto, Ontario, works with member destinations to help them grow partnerships. She also very rightly points out that those authentic partnerships are the key to creating those unforgettable experiences that the consumer is looking for. Sarah Hughes of Visit Norfolk Sarah tells us all about the City with Bite video series that Visit Norfolk launched and why it's doing so well that they've just finished filming their second season. She discusses why her destination was inspired to focus on a chef-owned restaurant in each show highlighting everything from why they opened a restaurant in Norfolk to their specialties in the kitchen. Scott McCray of Fairbanks, Alaska I was excited to hear all about how the Tourism Office and Chamber of Commerce in Fairbanks rallied up their business partners and members of the local community to participate in positive picketing by holding pep rallies outside of local hospitals during shift changes to show support and thanks for health care workers during COVID-19. Scott shares their behavior's effect on hospital staff and why the business community was inspired to take action. Stuart Butler of Visit Myrtle Beach Stuart shares how his team rallied the brilliant people in the agencies that his organization at Visit Myrtle Beach works with, who are used to working in siloed organizations to perform cross-functionally. He goes on to explain how connecting people and organizations has led to better problem solving, more efficiency, and more effective campaigns. Challenges and Silver Linings In all of these mini-interviews, I asked similar questions about some of the challenges that destination marketing organizations face. Many of my guests cited workforce as being an issue they needed to put time and thought into currently, and although that didn't surprise me, frankly, I was wowed by the breadth of creativity that the travel and tourism community is putting into solving the problem – and some of the unexpected positive side effects of that creativity. We also discuss the importance of partnerships to DMOs, and they shared their predictions for the future of the travel marketing industry.

Threats come in many forms when you're a collision shop owner. There's the threat of competition, the threat of a struggling economy, and the ever-present threat of natural disasters. But one of the most important threats to businesses is the possibility that the owners may one day need to transition out of their roles. Whether it's due to retirement, illness, or simply a desire to move on to new projects, business owners need to have a plan in place for how their business will continue without them. That's where insurance comes in. A properly structured insurance policy can provide the financial security that shop owners need to know and that their businesses will be taken care of in the event that they're no longer able to run them. Join Matt DiFrancesco and Alex Whittit, VP of Sales with Intrepid Direct Insurance, as they discuss how shop owners should be aware of threats they could face both personally and from a business standpoint, and how they should deal with them. Alex talks about: (03:06) What Intrepid Direct does (06:51) Why insurance policies need to be reviewed year over year (08:21) The biggest threats that shop owners face (09:21) How shop owners should deal with cyber liability (11:08) What is social inflation?

In the podcast interview, Sreeni and Joe discuss how to streamline your logistics operations. Sreeni and the Emtec Digital team work with dozens of top logistics, transportation, warehousing, supply chain, and freight tech companies on a variety of technology projects, but the interview was mostly focused on digital automation using robotic process automation (RPA) and intelligent process automation (IPA). Artificial intelligence is a part of intelligent automation. Intelligent automation is the intersection between rule-based, relatively inflexible robotic process automation (RPA) with the adaptive learning and decision-making capabilities of artificial intelligence. While the technology is not easily understandable for non-techies, RPA and IPA are affordable, easily implemented and widely used by the top transportation and logistics companies. To stay competitive in the increasingly tech-centric logistics and transportation space, companies should consider investing in IPA and RPA – the return on investment is very attractive, which is why so many companies are taking the plunge. In the interview, Sreeni described how companies are using RPA and IPA to streamline the following logistics operations: Tracking and tracing Freight quotations Appointment scheduling Document management including proof of delivery, bill of lading, accessorial, etc. Once an operation is automated using RPA and IPA, the operation is performed faster, better, and less expensively - and it frees up your team to focus on higher value work.

Speaking at Mahindra & Mahindra's Annual General Meeting recently, its Chairman Anand Mahindra said one of the key reasons for the long waiting period for delivery of vehicles is the supply chain disruption. In his words, the availability of semiconductors had slowed down to a trickle. Caused by pandemic supply chain disruption combined with stronger-than-expected demand recovery, the global chip shortage over the past two years is refusing to go away.  India's biggest carmaker Maruti Suzuki said it could not produce 51,000 units in the April-June quarter because of this.  According to the second-largest carmaker Hyundai India, which expects the semiconductor situation to improve only next year, the demand is outstripping the supply. In the April-June quarter, the domestic passenger vehicle sales stood at 9.1 lakh units, a 41% growth compared to 6.46 lakh units last year. PV sales are on track to touch a new record this fiscal beating their FY19 peak.  But the geopolitical fallout of a top US official's visit to Chinese-claimed Taiwan earlier this month is threatening to prolong the chip shortage.  US House Speaker and long-time China critic Nancy Pelosi's visit was the highest-level US visit to the self-governing island democracy in 25 years.  Her one-day trip worsened the tensions between China and Taiwan. An outraged China reacted by launching its biggest ever military drills in the seas around Taiwan, which is home to the world's biggest contract manufacturer of semiconductors, TSMC, and its peer UMC.   They are major suppliers to global tech giants, auto companies and producers of consumer electronics. TSMC alone makes 80% of microcontrollers used in cars. China's military exercises, which included firing live missiles and deploying fighter jets, bombers and warships around Taiwan, disrupted key trading routes for cargo and commodities sailing around the world.  For the first time, the Chinese army practised operations aimed at a blockade of the island. China suspended exports of natural sand to Taiwan and halted imports of fruit and fish products from the island. Quartz sand, a type of natural sand, is an important raw material for chip manufacturing.  On August 10th, China's military said exercises held around Taiwan in response to Pelosi's visit had concluded while pledging to continue regular patrols near the island. Saket Mehra, Partner and Auto Sector Leader, Grant Thornton Bharat says chip situation was easing from the start of 2022. China's drills will have a two-three quarter supply chain impact. OEMs will largely meet the festive season demand, he says.  The Indian Cellular and Electronics Association estimates that foundries in Taiwan account for more than 75% of the chips that mobile devices made in India need. The number is slightly lower at 60% if one considers all chips -- those of consumer electronics, PCs, laptops, automobiles, etc. With the festive season coming up, how are India's smartphone manufacturers placed amid the latest geopolitical tensions?  Navkendar Singh, Associate Vice-President, Devices Research, IDC India says, Taiwan is important for China too. Indian smartphone makers have enough chip supply. But currently, the problem is on the demand side not supply side. There will be price increases leading up to the festive season, he says. For the smartphone industry, a slowdown in demand is the bigger challenge. India's smartphone shipments fell 1% in the first half of 2022. World chip sales growth has also been declining for six straight months. Semiconductor sales rose 13.3% in June, down from 18% in May, according to the World Semiconductor Industry Association.  A chip shortage will however hobble the automotive industry for a few more quarters.  Having said that, experts believe a blockade on Taiwan's exports or widening of sanctions to cover semiconductors is unlikely as it's also not in the interest of

During Scott's 30+ years in enrollment, he's seen high and lows of recruitment that are often tied to the ebb and flow of demographics. However, the current environment of shrinking college going populations has his attention. For years, PLNU has focused attention on gender balance in their student body - called shaping the class. Yet, each year, recruiting male students is getting more and more challenging. In this Enrollment Edge episode we'll talk about the realities that colleges are facing and work through some strategies that you will want to take note of if you're going to recapture this diminishing area of the college student population. For most colleges, it's not about shaping a class, it's about filling an incoming class. Scott shares some of his successes and failures and provides the listeners with some realistic tactics that will help recruit men back to college!About Our GuestScott is in his 36th year of serving in Christian higher education, all at his alma mater Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego, California.  After completing a bachelors degree in psychology, he began his professional career in admissions and served for 5 years as a counselor and assistant director.  In 1992 he moved to Student Development and served as associate dean for community life for 6 years.  During his time in student life he completed a masters in counseling at the University of San Diego.   In 1998, he assumed the role of director of admissions and chief enrollment officer, a role he has continued in various iterations for nearly 25 years.  PLNU saw marked growth in the student body both in numbers and in profile during this season and PLNU now demonstrates some of the highest retention and graduation rates in the CCCU, while also one of the most academically competitive and ethnically diverse campuses.  Scott enjoys the day to day management opportunities with a large team, as well as strategic planning and forecasting aspects of enrollment management.

It is now widely accepted that socioeconomic issues like food, housing, transportation, and more, directly drive health outcomes in the U.S. These issues hinder access to quality healthcare, and create obstacles to education and stable employment. In the former context, they are often referred to as the Social Determinants of Health. In the latter context, we might consider them the Social Determinants of Success. One organization that sees it this way is Ultimate Medical Academy (UMA) – a nonprofit healthcare educational institution based in Clearwater, Florida. UMA has instituted what it calls a “culture of care”. That means they are fully committed to addressing the socioeconomic issues that make it difficult for students to apply, attend, and learn at their schools. UMA is committed to providing the support its students need to thrive inside and outside of school. The culture of care is grounded in a commitment to diversity, community development, and a lifetime of support pledge to every student.   They do this, of course, because it is the right thing to do. But it is also perfect for business! Good for their business as the word of mouth from past students becomes a powerful recruiting tool. And good for the business of health care too. After all, their students will know firsthand the value of receiving this type of support and they will bring it into the healthcare workforce with them. Who better to fix our SDOH issues than those who have already overcome them? We discuss this, and much more with Rebecca Sarlo, Associate Vice President, and Director of Ultimate Medical Academy's Clearwater Campus where she oversees both the academic and operational functions at the campus.

Hear how to rediscover your curiosity to "see" new ideas! Today I have a fabulous speaker for us, Dr. Debra Clary, who is here to talk with us about curiosity. What a great topic, and also a great lady to have you listen to. Debra shares how we should stop assuming we know the answers to our questions or the solutions to our problems. Rather, it is time to begin to think and listen differently, to open our minds to possibilities. You might be asking: But how do I become and remain curious? (There is actually research on a person's CQ—curiosity quotient). Have you thought about it? Do you love new things? Or does your brain fight the unfamiliar and flee away from it? Many great things to think about. Listen in! Watch and listen to our conversation here You're really going to enjoy Debra's perspective. She talks to thousands and thousands of Humana folks about how to be curious, and today she shares those insights with us so we too can push past our mental boundaries and discover new ideas and solutions. Connect with her on LinkedIn or send her an email: dclary@humana.com. Three important takeaways from today's podcast: Children are born highly curious. That's how they learn how to live life every day. They question everything and see things with minimal bias. As we grow up, we begin to formulate a story in our mind's eye that captures, for each of us, our perspective on our reality. As we grow up, we gain skills and suppress when we don't know something. Or if we see something that doesn't fit our mind map, we delete it or ignore it. "It can't be too important if it doesn't fit our own sense of what matters most." Rather than just accept your efficient mind, ask yourself, What can I do to stay open to possibilities? Debra's advice: Say to yourself, “I know that my brain is wanting efficiency, and it's going to want to get there as fast as possible. But I'm not going to allow it. I'm going to remind myself to remain open so I might collect the relevant information in order to be most helpful.” Our job is to help you see, feel and think in new ways so you can adapt to these fast-changing times At SAMC, we help you build your open mind and your curious eyes. We show you how to see what is happening before you believe something to be true. And using a little anthropology, we help you anticipate and capitalize on today's changes so you can not just survive but thrive. Want a deeper dive into seeing through a fresh lens?

Hi, I'm Andi Simon. I'm your host and your guide and my job is to help you see, feel and think in new ways so you can get off the brink. I want to help you soar again. And in these fast changing times, we've been doing so much writing and speaking about leadership in the midst of all the tumult and disruption. How do you really see things through a better lens? And how do you know how to respond quickly and effectively to build those relationships in new ways? So today, I have a fabulous speaker for us. Dr. Debra Clary is here to talk to us about curiosity. What a great topic and a great lady to have you listen to. And what Debra is going to share with us is a lot about how we should stop assuming we know and begin to think and listen differently, opening our minds to possibilities. And so it's going to be a great day for us to share how to be curious. What's your curiosity quotient? Have you thought about it? Do you love new things? Or does your brain fight it and flee away from it? So let me tell you about Dr. Clary first, and then Debra will come on and tell you all about herself. Debra Clary is an executive with three decades of leadership experience with four Fortune 100 companies: PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, Brown-Forman and Humana. Her broad-based functional expertise spans from global operations and marketing, strategy development and human performance to corporate board and investor relations. In her current Humana role, she's Associate Vice President for the Office of the CEO, and works with the executive team to improve their impact and contribution through executive development and cultural transformation. You're going to just enjoy her perspective because she goes around and talks to thousands and thousands of Humana folks about how to see, feel and think in new ways to be curious. Debra, thank you for joining me today. Debra Clary: My pleasure, Andi. Andi Simon: Now tell the audience if you don't mind, who's Debra, what's your journey? It sounds like you're a curious person because in some ways, that curiosity has led you to great places. Who is Debra? Debra Clary: Thank you, Andi, again. Well, I started my career at Frito-Lay and I actually started as a route driver. So right out of grad school, my first job was driving a route truck for Frito-Lay in the city of Detroit. And weren't my parents proud, right? "You went to undergrad and then two years of business school, now you're driving a route truck?" But it's really where I learned the basics of business, when I started at that bottom, loading my truck delivering potato chips, learning how to work with delivery individuals as well as the store managers. And I spent about a decade at Frito-Lay in various sales and marketing type roles. And after that, I spent 10 years at the Coca-Cola company. And I started there as a general manager in the Philadelphia area. And then I moved to Atlanta, and worked in a global marketing role. And from there, I joined Brown-Forman, the makers of Jack Daniels. I got to learn a lot about bourbon and whiskey. And there I was, the VP of Strategy. And then I got really curious about culture and leadership. I had worked for two very large organizations, very well structured. And then I went to Brown-Forman, which was a much smaller company, and still very much run by the family. And so I began to see differences in cultures and differences in leadership and I got curious. And so I went back for a doctorate in Leader Development from George Washington University. I would fly to DC once a month on a Thursday night. I would go to school 12 hours Friday, 12 hours Saturday, and then I would fly back home on Sunday. And so I did that for three years. And I wrote my dissertation on executive women and leadership, and later published it into a book. And then about that time, Humana was starting a Leadership Institute. And they approached me and said, Gosh, with your business background, your academic background, this could be a really good fit. And I said, No way, I am food and beverage. I'm, you know, the Super Bowl and concerts. I mean, I'm living the big life. And these are consumer packaged goods companies. And the more I thought about it, and the more conversations I had with them, I realized I had an opportunity to take all of that experience and help Humana, who was a company that was just beginning to pivot into being really centered on the customer and the needs of the customer. So with my consumer goods background, and my academic background, I joined Humana to start up the Leadership Institute. And I did that for about the first eight years that I was there. And then the new CEO came in and we created a new role in which I was embedded in his team. And helping his team really improved their team dynamics, and their impact and contribution to the organization. So I've been doing that for the last eight years. Andi Simon: You know, I'm curious about your career curiosity, because I too have a career that didn't stay for a very, very long time in one place. I stayed long enough to begin to understand its culture, what was developing. I like things that are vacuums that I can change. But then when I went into my own business, I began to realize that my job was to help others see things through a fresh lens, and to do it in new ways to be curious. And in the leadership academies I have started, people are emerging to see how to lead differently and listen differently. So as you're now thinking about your career, and I'm so delighted you shared it, I don't know you so well, it's a pleasure to really begin to get to understand your history because it's framed who you are today. So as you're thinking about this, and I know you speak widely on curiosity, share with our audience, what is curiosity? Where does it fit? Why is it so vital right now? Because that curiosity quotient, that CQ, is becoming extremely important. Your turn. Debra Clary: Yeah, the how I got curious about curiosity, if you will, is, it was probably about four or five years ago. I was sitting next to our CEO at a meeting and he leaned over to me and he said, Do you think curiosity? Is it learned? Or is it just innate? And I said, I don't know. I want to go study this. And so I just dug into all the research on curiosity. And I really became a huge fan of it, even though, I think for me, I am a learner, and my parents fostered that in me. I feel like I can't breathe if I'm not learning something each day. And that's how I'm wired, so to speak. But when he asked that question, I became more serious about it in terms of mechanics. Can it be taught? And the answer is, absolutely, curiosity can be learned. And it's also that curiosity is not a trait. Curiosity is a state, and it can be fostered by yourself and others. There was a group of neuroscientists out of London that wanted to really understand this. Their focus was on child development. And what they came to understand from watching children is that, and this won't come as a surprise to you, but children, especially toddlers, asked a lot of questions. Matter of fact, they asked 396 questions a day. So every minute and 56 seconds, a toddler was asking a question. Now the question may not come verbally, it may come when they're pointing at something. So children are incredibly curious, because the world is a wonder to them. Well, what they found out is that for those caregivers that tried to answer those questions, and stayed with their child, they found on this longitudinal study that these children were more academically successful, more socially connected, and more emotionally stable. So as children, we come into the world curious. And if it's fostered, it gives us a better shot at life. Now, another research group out of London studied curiosity in the elderly. They wanted to understand why some of those in their 80s are still curious. So those that were reading and were intellectually engaged in walking and really active until their death, they had ⅓ less dementia. So you think about this: we come into the world curious, and it's really good for our brain, because our brain is lit up when we're curious. It's really good for us at the end of life. But what happens in the middle? Why do we stop being curious? And the reasons are, just just think about how we're taught. So from a Christian view, one of the first stories we learn is that Adam and Eve were curious about the tree of knowledge and they ate and then you know what happens there. But you look at Greek mythology and you look at the story of Icarus, who wanted to fly, and his father gave him wings of wax and said, Don't go too close to the sun. I'm curious. Of course, my favorite is don't open Pandora's box, right? So as children, we begin to learn not to ask questions, and that children are to be seen and not heard. And you have to sit in your chair and all of those things that are messaging that we find out. And so we go on to universities. We become accountants and attorneys and medical doctors, and we become experts in our field. And so we get rewarded for our expertise, and our curiosity can diminish because of what we need to get done. And not to mention time constraints, right?, just not having enough time to be able to have that freedom to feel like you can be curious. Andi Simon: You know, we know so much more about how our minds work. And I love Marisa Peer. She speaks about the fact that the mind does several things. It does exactly what it thinks you want it to do. And so if you want to be an expert, it doesn't allow you lots of room for curiosity. It loves the familiar, not the unfamiliar. And that amygdala will hijack things that are unfamiliar to you that you might be curious about. And so it creates a lot of cortisol that says, That's painful, don't do that. And it really likes to select the familiar and loves the habit, and so you're very efficient, your brain uses 25% of your body's energy. So you're really efficient if you're not thinking beyond what your mind thinks is the thing to do. And once it has that story in there, it doesn't like to change it. That's work. And as you're thinking about that, what we know is that once you get locked into that story that creates your illusion of your reality, you live it, and you only see the things that conform to it. But what I love about what your research suggests, and you're suggesting, is that our growth comes from being curious about what we don't know, pushing our brains to open up to possibilities for the art of the possibility, the art of what I'm not sure of, to listen, not to fit things into your brain. My last little story is, when I go out with a new client, we go researching their customers. And I always love this because the two of us were in the same place. We walked out, we wrote down everything we heard, we compared notes. And it was as if we were in two different places. They were listening for all the things that conform to them. And I'm listening for all I'm curious about. I'm looking for all the things that are gaps, that don't fit what would give them opportunities to grow. So as you're thinking about this, how do we help people see things broader, listen differently, and to be curious? You said an important thing: it's not innate, it's a state of thinking. It's enabling, it's allowing, it's trusting, it's encouraging. It is taking flight walks, so your brain can quiet down and think about things. Some insights or some ideas you can share. Debra Clary: So I think you're spot on in the sense that it starts with the mindset. Setting your intention of being open-minded. Also saying, "I know that my brain is wanting efficiency, and it's going to want to get there as fast as possible. But I'm not going to allow it, I'm going to remind myself that I'm going to remain open so that I might collect the relevant information so that I can be most helpful." And, one of the things that I see: here's a typical exchange between a leader and an employee. An employee comes in, and they sit down and they put the problem on the table. And the leader and the employee look at the problem, and they both try to solve it. Now as the leader, you've been promoted into that role, because you're probably an expert in that area, and then you both try to solve the problem. Well, another way to do that is to allow the employee to focus on the problem and the leader ask a series of questions. And you're doing two things for this. One, you're teaching that employee how to think for themselves, and most likely they have the answer. They maybe even haven't thought about it in a way that's going to get the best results. And so the role of the leader is to ask open-ended questions, and then provide support and encouragement that they can do that. That's why you're building the critical thinking of an employee. But that's an error I see that leaders make, that easy fix instead of remaining open, and to ask questions, so the employee can think about it. Andi Simon: It sounds like you're urging those leaders to be coaches, not command and control. "I have the answer. I'll tell you what to do." Instead, you're saying, "I'm going to enable you to creatively find solutions yourself because you've got the answers. That's why you're here. So how do I help you do that?" Like a coach might, instead of telling the employee they're going to facilitate a whole process of discovery. Do you also encourage them to come back with a view to go back and talk to others? I mean, I'm curious how you're developing those leadership skills because they're essential to developing the team and the organization, at least I think they are. Debra Clary: Yeah, yeah, absolutely. And the first thing is just the awareness of why they may not do that. So I don't want anyone to feel badly about their leadership, I really want to be additive and generative to what they're currently doing. And just saying, "We recognize that you're under pressure, you're under stress, you're under constraints for time." And it may feel like the easiest thing to do is to give the individual the answer, and maybe sometimes that is the case. But in general, if the role of a leader is to develop that individual to be stronger, then leading with questions to help them create that, that critical thinking, is going to be really, really powerful. You're going to have a better employee if you take that extra time to do that. And the most important thing is, you're expressing your competence in that individual's abilities. And that you also want to encourage them to continuously speak up about their ideas and that we want to explore them. The other thing that we do is start with the mindset and encourage the leaders that this isn't easy, but you're gonna get this. And then we take them through a series of what are good authentic questions, and what are non-genuine questions, if you will. So a genuine question is really stating, "I am really wanting to understand where you're coming from, I really want to understand your line of thinking." And so you come with that heart of, "I'm truly interested." Non-genuine questions are, you are reinforcing what you think you already know. "I'm going to pretend I'm asking questions. But the reality is, I have the answer and I'm trying to lead them to an answer." We've all watched these legal shows on TV, right? And isn't it true that, Where were you the night of...? And so we're asking our leaders not to push people into a corner, but rather keep the conversation open. Andi Simon: Working with them, do they embrace it? Or do they do that resistance? And shiny object stuff? Where they say, Yes and then don't mean it? Or do you have to roleplay with them? How do you develop them? I'm curious about your curiosity. Debra Clary: We do a workshop around curiosity, and we talk specifically about the process. We talk about the science of the brain. And it may sound kind of technical, but it's actually quite interesting in terms of what the brain is doing when you're curious, and how healthy it is for your brain to stay active and alert. And so we start with the science. We give them some of these studies, and then we talk about why we are naturally curious about what has happened to us in our lifetime that has led us to where we are today. And then we show a path forward that states that you can shift the way that you show up as a leader by just simply asking different questions. And so we take them through what is a genuine question, what is a non-genuine question. We actually then have them do an application where they work in groups. They determine if this is a genuine question or a non-genuine question. How would they strengthen it if it's a non-genuine question? So we allow them to put it into application at the moment. And then we encourage them to be curious. Andi Simon: Do they feel the energy in their brain because they're learning a whole new skill, they're breaking out of the incurious that they've been well-honed in to become something that they were way back when they were kids, so they really know how to do it? I'll tell you something in a second, but I'm anxious for your answer. How do they feel the energy or do they play and then leave? I mean, you're working hard. They need very strong people to help them do better. Debra Clary: Yeah, I think that they feel very energized. You know, it's inclusive curiosity. It's fun, right? It's nothing that requires a lot of complexity, if you will, and the way in which we do the workshop, we put curious things in there. And then we tell them why they've done it right. We've asked this because of this reason, and it's really fun. It's high energy. Andi Simon: The reason that I asked you is that we play innovation games where we are innovation trained facilitators, and what we found was that when you put people into game mode, they relax. You know, humans always play and once you go into a game mode, you can solve problems with such creativity, curiosity and almost without even knowing that the game has enabled you to think beyond the box that you're in. We talk about creating a new sandbox instead of even thinking out of the box. But humans are very complex. I'll never forget, about a third of our clients are in healthcare, and doctors take 13 years to adopt evidence-based medicine. That's gone back 10 years now. But there's a lot of resistance to evidence-based medicine that they should be curious about understanding and being able to apply, but the risk factor is so high that they flee. It's easier to fall back on what they learned then to try and test the new and almost risk the fact that I'm not quite sure how to do this, or whether it will work or not. So it becomes an interesting human transformation. I bet you enjoy what you're doing. Debra Clary: Oh, I love it. I love it. It takes my passion. And you know, I've just now become somewhat of an expert in the area. It's fun to blend them. Andi Simon: Do you measure in any way a rising curiosity or some way of indicating that there's a change in the culture of the organization? Or do you just hope? Debra Clary: Well, we do a curiosity index. And so because one of our key points is that curiosity is contagious. And so if you are around others that are curious...so you work with pretty much a set, people set a group in your team. So you can help each other be curious. And so we measure the curiosity of a team. And so when we do the workshop, at the end of it, we reveal what the current curiosity index is of that team. And we also show them how they compare to other teams within the organization. And of course all companies are competitive...like, All we want is to be more curious then the finance group, or, We want to be more curious in that group. But we don't go back and measure them again. But we really encourage them to think about how they can be different with one another, whether it be a leader, an employee, or if it's just to colleagues or even with your own leader, how can you come forward with a different mindset in different questions? Andi Simon: This has been such fun. And Debra, I am enjoying this more than you can imagine, and how to bring this into my toolkit. And for our listeners, how do you bring this into your toolkit because I do think there's something here that is enormously important during fast changing times. You're gonna be curious about things you're unfamiliar with because it's coming at you from all over. Our whole ecosystem is changing. Well, I'll list all the things that we talked about in our workshops, but it's just an abundance of change. And that means you should be curious about it instead of frightened. Don't flee it, don't appease it, it's gonna be cool. Couple of things you don't want our clients, our customers here, our audience, to not forget. Debra Clary: I would say that curiosity is a state and not a trait. It's contagious. It can be learned, and that those that are curious will always be in demand. Andi Simon: Oh, I love that. And mostly because people have opened their minds to new possibilities and opportunities. That's terrific. If you want to be engaged as a speaker, or in some other fashion, perhaps sell your book, how can they reach you? Debra Clary: They can connect with me either on LinkedIn or my website, which is Debraclary.com. Andi Simon: Good. That's terrific. And we'll put that up on our blog post and so forth and promote. So for all of my audience out there, thank you for coming. You've lifted us into the top 5% of podcasts globally, which I think is quite an honor. And I get emails from across the globe. So if you have people you want me to interview so you can hear them with a fresh eye and a new lens on it, let me know who that is. Today we've had Dr. Debra Clary. Thank you for joining me today. It's been such a pleasure. And I always encourage you to reach out to me at info@Andisimon.com. Send me your thoughts. Send me your ideas. My second book, Rethink: Smashing The Myths of Women in Business, just won a 2022 Bronze Best Business Book of the Year award in the women in business category by Axiom and I'm honored, and it's a pretty cool book, you will enjoy it. And on that note, I'm going to say goodbye. Have a wonderful day. Keep thinking in new ways. Be curious, because I think that's going to be a really good part of a new way of thinking for you. So thanks again. Bye bye now.
