Ron Carucci has a 30-year track record of helping organizations adopt strategies that lead to accelerated growth, and designing programs to execute those strategies. He is also a two-time TED speaker and the best-selling author of eight books.    His recently released book is “To Be Honest: Lead with the Power of Truth, Justice and Purpose,” which was selected by Bloomberg Businessweek as one of 2021's Best Books. Based on a 15 year longitudinal study of more than 3,200 leaders, Ron wanted to know what earns and keeps the trust of others, and what loses it.    Ron also talks about why more than 50% of leaders fail within their first 18 months of appointment, and shares the four differentiating capabilities that set successful leaders apart. If you are facing a challenge of spearheading a daunting transformation of any kind, this episode will resonate.   Key Takeaways [2:10] Outside of his public bio, Ron talks about why he collects antique doorknobs. [5:40] Ron tells the stories of the leaders we want to be like and share what it means to be honest. [7:30] What people look for in a leader are truth, justice, and purpose.   [8:50] Ron shares results from their research on how to predict someone's behavior or response in a certain situation: Justice and consistency.  [10:35] Not all workers are created equal. Ron shares how leaders can create a just environment. [11:40] Treating everyone the same way will make you fair. [14:16] Accountability systems are trust-based and dignifying to the contributor when the leader recognizes that the contribution and the contributor are fused. [16:14] Power is oftentimes misunderstood and misused. [18:45] A sense of agency will help us focus on the right things. [19:35] You can only disappoint people at a rate they can absorb. [20:40] Information is no longer a source of power because it is ubiquitous. Ron shares how the interpretation of information can be a source of power, instead. [23:25] The job of a leader is making sure their employees don't ask the two questions: Do I matter and do I fit in. [26:20] Ron alo talks about the difference between core values and values that are operative and how leaders can coach their employees to be a better fit. [29:20] Shedding our paradigms of leadership helps develop better leaders. [32:00] Ron shares advice for leaders on how to allow their employees to be a better version of themselves. [36:40] Giving your employees grace and the chance to learn sets them up for success. [40:10] Ron shares his insights on transformational change from a leadership perspective in order to scale. [42:40] As we move into 2022, Ron urges leaders to reflect on how their values can positively impact employees.   Quotable Quotes “There are 7.3 billion doors in the world through which love, joy, and hope can pass in and you're one of them.”   “Truth; you have to say the right thing. Justice; you have to do the right thing. And Purpose; you have to say and do the right thing for the right reason.”   “If you want to be a just leader, you have to actually be somebody who is an activist looking to uproot injustices and right them.” “Accountability is about a mutually beneficial relationship between a leader and a follower.” “Your weaknesses are your greatest source of credibility.”   Resources Mentioned Sponsored by: Darley.com Navalent.com Ron on LinkedIn Grab Ron's books, Rising to Power: The Journey of Exceptional Executives and To Be Honest: Lead with the Power of Truth, Justice and Purpose

One in four workers plans to look for a new job in the coming months. Many are unwilling to give up their newfound autonomy and flexibility. Disenchantment with the way company leadership responded to the pandemic and the way in which companies put financial health ahead of employee health and safety also adds to the reasons for departures. Additionally, the pandemic made workers rethink their career paths and they've made up their minds to find work that's satisfying and with a company whose mission aligns with their values.

Starting with Captain James Cook, the earliest European explorers to visit the Pacific were astounded and perplexed to find populations thriving thousands of miles from continents. Who were these people? From where did they come? And how were they able to reach islands dispersed over such vast tracts of ocean?  In Voyagers, the distinguished anthropologist Nicholas Thomas charts the course of the seaborne migrations that populated the islands between Asia and the Americas from late prehistory onward. Drawing on the latest research, including insights gained from genetics, linguistics, and archaeology, Thomas provides a dazzling account of these long-distance migrations, the seagoing technologies that enabled them, and the societies they left in their wake.

On Tuesday the House of Representatives voted to hold ex-president Donald Trump's former chief of staff, Mark Meadows, in contempt of Congress and refer him to the US Department of Justice for prosecution after his refusal to testify to the select committee investigating the Capitol riot. This week Marion McKeone explains why she believes he played a critical role in the January 6th riot and why history needs to accurately record what exactly took place in the corridors of power on that fateful day. Jarlath wonders if America is even paying attention and if they are, what can this investigation even hope to do when Trump supporters and haters are so entrenched.    Marion's books of the year are revealed and we also get a brief catch-up on what has been happening in the Ghislaine Maxwell trial and bit more of the lighter side with Marion's favourite conspiracy theory of the year.   To hear every episode in full and to gain access to the entire back-catalogue of over 500 Irishman Abroad episodes that are not available on iTunes for just the price of a pint every month visit www.patreon.com/irishmanabroad   Supplementary research provided by John Meagher.   If you would like a story discussed, get in touch, the Irishman Abroad Liveline is now open.

The History of Literature

The English novelist Evelyn Waugh (1903-1966) was regarded by many as the most brilliant satirical novelist of his time. A self-proclaimed curmudgeon, for whom the Conservative Party was not conservative enough, Waugh converted to Catholicism in his twenties and never looked back. He resisted change in all areas of life, expressing the opinion that he wished he had been born two or three centuries earlier. At his best, he was darkly funny, using his misanthropy like a bright light to illuminate cracks and flaws in society's foundations, and using his pointed wit to skewer anyone and everyone he encountered, including himself. At his worst, he was a crazy quilt of what George Orwell called "untenable opinions," with all the racism and anti-semitism one might expect from a self-satisfied man of his era. In this episode, Jacke is joined by author Phil Klay to discuss Waugh's religion, military background, and his novel A Handful of Dust in particular. The two also discuss Klay's award-winning fiction, his writing process, what it means to be a Catholic writer in Waugh's time and our own, and the new podcast American Veteran: Unforgettable Stories, which Klay hosts. PHIL KLAY is a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps. His short story collection Redeployment won the 2014 National Book Award for Fiction and was selected as one of the 10 Best Books of 2014 by The New York Times. His debut novel, Missionaries, was released in October 2020 with Penguin Press. Help support the show at patreon.com/literature or historyofliterature.com/shop.

Billy Dha Kidd is better known for his rapping than his real estate skills, but both careers are worth celebrating. Billy's early life was anything but comfortable — growing up in El Salvador, he was used to no running water and no electricity. He likes to say that he didn't start at zero but started at negative one-hundred. Billy's family immigrated to the United States when he was 10 years old, moving first to California and then later to Nebraska.As a teenager, Billy began rapping as a way for him to express himself but found he loved the craft. Rapping allowed Billy to fill his time with something positive, instead of taking the wrong path many of his friends were on. His rap taught him sales skills, business skills, how taxes work, and most importantly, how to make money.Reading stories of generational wealth, Billy was compelled to start investing in real estate. He got his first deal, learned a lot about the BRRRR strategy, and continued to put his knowledge to work. Now, he's sitting on twenty-two doors between eighteen different properties. He gives credit to simply taking responsibility for his outcomes, instead of blaming others or the system around him.In This Episode We Cover:Building wealth even if you started with a disadvantageDeveloping sales skills and using them when buying and selling propertiesGenerational wealth and why it means more than just getting richFinding deals both on and off-market for the BRRRR strategyThe biggest hurdles that come with owning a large rental portfolio Creating a sellable, scalable business so you work less and make moreAnd So Much More!Links from the Show:BiggerPocket's Ultimate Beginner's Guide to Real Estate InvestingOpen Door CapitalBiggerPockets Podcast 537: 10 Best Books for Real Estate, Health, and WealthBrandon Turner's InstagramUniversal Music GroupMyspaceMLS (Multiple Listing Service)ZillowRealtorWells Fargo BankChase BankThe One Brokerage - The David Greene lending teamCheck the full show notes here: http://biggerpockets.com/show542See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
