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

Did you know that real estate constitutes a whopping one-third of China's massive economy? The property sector has been used to drive growth and most household wealth is held in real estate. As a result, for years developers like Evergrande have had access to cheap money, enabling them to become small Empires.  Recognizing that the situation was out of control, President Xi Jinping has used his "common prosperity" to establish new policies to limit the use of property as a financial tool. This latest round of policies has landed China's second-largest property developer in a world of trouble. Now the world's most indebted property developer, Evergrande is in debt to the tune of $310 billion and has yet to build over a million flats that have already been paid for.Dexter Roberts, author of The Myth of Chinese Capitalism and former China bureau chief and Asia News Editor at Bloomberg Businessweek sits down with Fredrik and Leilani to delve into how Evergrande got to this point. Will the government bail the company out to prevent broader economic downturn? Or will Xi Jinping make an example of Evergrande to show that houses are for living in, not for speculation? Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/pushbacktalks)

When you discover you're pregnant, it's such an exciting and overwhelming time. There's so much to do and to think about! It's normal for women to begin questioning their lifestyle choices and the products they use. Maybe you want to start getting more active. Maybe you want to lower the stress in your life. And maybe you want to rethink what you have been eating in your diet. We all know that nutrition in pregnancy is important but it can be confusing. Many women aren't sure exactly what they should be eating throughout each trimester. And what one woman should eat during their pregnancy is oftentimes different from another, especially when we look at our DNA. In today's episode, I have the pleasure of chatting with Dr. Nicole Avena, an Assistant Professor of Neuroscience at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City, and a Visiting Professor of Health Psychology at Princeton University. Dr. Avena is a research neuroscientist and expert in the fields of nutrition, diet, and addiction, with a special focus on nutrition during early life and pregnancy, and women's health. She has written several books and frequently appears as a science expert in the media. This includes regular appearances on the Dr. Oz Show, Good Day NY, and The Doctors, as well as many other news programs. Her work has been featured in Time Magazine, Bloomberg Business Week, Time Magazine for Kids, The New York Times, and many other periodicals. We are thrilled to have her as a guest on our show to discuss nutrition in pregnancy. Every pregnancy is so different and the nutrition we need from each pregnancy can vary. Thankfully there is a resource that can help us that is called 9Moons. 9Moons is a personalized prenatal nutrition program shaped by your DNA and lifestyle. Dr. Avena is sharing her expert advice and telling us all about it. We are excited to learn more! This episode is brought to you by our friends at 9Moons.

Cheers,Scott, Jake, & MichaelBourbon Lens About Horse Soldier Bourbon Horse Soldier Bourbon is an all American, ultra-premium whiskey crafted by the legendary U.S. Army Green Berets who answered the country's call days after 9/11 with a daring insertion, on horseback, into northern Afghanistan. This brave and unconventional act earned them the moniker of “Horse Soldiers” and inspired them to create their awarding winning bourbon. The team has been featured in the Hollywood movie 12 Strong, the CNN documentary Legion of Brothers, and is memorialized by America's Response Monument located at Ground Zero in New York City. When the team first set out on their journey to make Horse Soldier Bourbon, they wanted to ensure they were fully immersing themselves in the art of making whiskey and learning all they could about the ingredients used, distillation, aging and design. They therefore traveled around the world visiting distilleries and brand houses to gain more information and understand everything that went into making a stellar bourbon. The result was the ability to successfully combine their new knowledge and whiskey making skills with the meticulous precision, process, and habits they gained in the military and translate both into distilling the world-class Horse Soldier Bourbon brand.  Founded in 2015, Horse Soldier Bourbon encompasses three core elements that make it the legendary spirit it is today: Authentic, the team behind the brand are an integral part of the country's history; All-American, each ingredient used to make Horse Soldier Bourbon is from the U.S, including its glass bottle, which is molded by steel recovered from the World Trade Center to commemorate the lives lost but never forgotten; And Award-Winning, to date the brand has won more than 30 awards from many of the industry's most prestigious competitions, including three Double Gold Medals at the San Francisco International Spirits Competition. Today, the team's steadfast mission is to continue to create an award-winning, legendary line of bourbons, the embodiment of the American spirit and the Horse Soldier's legacy in a bottle. Comprised of rich and complex wheat-forward whiskies, the core Horse Soldier Portfolio includes the Straight Bourbon, Small Batch Bourbon, and Barrel Strength Bourbon in addition to limited edition expressions launched annually, such as the Commander's Select Limited Edition Release.  Looking ahead, Horse Soldier Bourbon will be making its forever home in Somerset, Kentucky. Located on 225 acres of rolling countryside, they put together an award winning team of international and local architects, experiential designers, and engineers to create the Horse Soldier Distillery experience.  The new distillery will become the most southern stop on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, joining the family of iconic distilleries that have made their home there and ensuring the Horse Soldier legacy lives on for decades to come. The Horse Soldier Bourbon Portfolio: Horse Soldier Straight Bourbon (SRP: $49.99 | 43.5% ABV):  The brand's classic recipe of authentic bourbon is made with corn, rye, and malted barley and won a Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2019. It is a balanced and robust bourbon aged a minimum of 3 years to ensure its distinctive, mellow character.  Horse Soldier Small Batch Bourbon (SRP: $69.99 | 47.5% ABV): Extraordinarily complex with notes of vanilla, ginger, and cherries, this “wheated” bourbon is made from small batches of meticulously blended mature whiskey, aged for a minimum of 6 years in new American white oak barrels. It received a Gold Medal (95 Points) at the New York International Spirits Competition and 92 Points at the International Wine & Spirits Competition.  Horse Soldier Barrel Strength Bourbon (SRP: $84.99 | 54% ABV): A uniquely complex “wheated” uncut and non-chill filtered bourbon that has matured for a minimum of 6 years in new American white oak barrels. This all-natural, all-American product just won a Double Gold in the 2021 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and was included in the Top 100 Spirits of 2020. It also earned 93 points at the New York International Spirits Competition and 92 points at the International Wine and Spirits Competition, making it a truly prized bourbon. The soft red winter wheat in the recipe provides intriguing depth and complexity to this ultimate American spirit. Commander's Select Limited Edition Single Batch Release (SRP: $595 | 65.5% ABV): An outstanding and award-winning limited annual release, most recently winning Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2019, the Commanders Select barrels are meticulously chosen each year by both Commander and Chief Warrant Officer of Special Forces ODA Team 595. Sales from the Commander's Select are all donated to maintaining the America Response Monument located at Ground Zero in New York City. This year's 2021 release will be debuted in the fall, commemorating the 20th Anniversary of 9/11.

Millions of people around the globe are soon going to feel the impact of soaring natural gas prices—or so says an article recently published in Bloomberg Businessweek titled, “Europe's Energy Crisis is Coming for the Rest of the World, Too.” European governments have been warning their citizens of blackouts, factories are being forced to shut down, and other sources of energy, such as wind turbines, have not been producing enough output to pick up the slack. Gas is becoming more necessary and more expensive, especially in climates where gas is relied on to heat homes during the winter. And the crisis is spreading beyond Europe. This week on Upzoned, regular host Abby Kinney and co-host Chuck Marohn “upzone” the rising costs of gas—i.e., they look at it through the Strong Towns lens. They discuss how the underlying story here is the fragility of these large, complex, interconnected systems, and how it impacts us all at the local level. Then, in the downzone, Chuck needs a vacation from his vacation and Abby is getting ready to welcome a special guest to Kansas City (hint: it's Chuck).
