    Mo asks Jonathan Reckford: What's your personal definition of growth? Ultimately, it's all about impact, but in order to make an impact you need fuel. Creating complex partnerships is very aligned with good development practices, which is valuable for Jonathan because growth at Habitat for Humanity means having conversations around fundraising. When he made the mindset switch to solving someone's problem, raising money became much easier and simpler. It's not about pressuring, or trying to get somebody to do something they don't want to do. It's about really trying to understand what people are trying to accomplish or the impact they want to have, and then looking for a fit and where there is one, finding ways you can help them have that impact in a really joyful way. Before a big meeting, you have to do the research. Jonathan will have a brief on the person's biographical information, passion, and overall strategic goals so that he can create alignment in the potential partnership. Creating win/wins is the goal and when you can do that, growth becomes easy. Negotiation is usually won or lost based on preparation and framing, not on the actual tactics of the conversation. After the research, the first step of the meeting is creating a point of connection and establishing the relationship. The goal of the first meeting is to come away with clear next steps, not to close the deal.   Mo asks Katrina Johnson: What is your personal definition of business development? Katrina likes helping people. For her, business development is about cultivating opportunities to help people. Business development doesn't always have a great reinforcement mechanism, but having a process established makes it much more consistent. Creating a habit around communication that makes it simpler, more meaningful, and consistent is what has helped Katrina stay the course. Using the tools and communication methods that your client uses is crucial. Katrina tries to make her communications quick and useful when touching base with someone and on whatever platform works for them. Lots of little touches can be extremely powerful relationship builders. Katrina carves out time on Mondays to reach out to people, but she also has notes on her calendar and a Protemoi list that help her keep track of communications. Just having a list of names of the most important people to you can be enough to encourage you to take action.   Mo asks Tyler Sweatt: What is your personal definition of business development? Simply put, it's all about value creation. The entire spectrum of taking a prospect from completely cold to raving fan is the process of growth. Content creation is part of the effort, similar to an at-scale give-to-get. When someone hits the pipeline, Tyler focuses on qualifying them immediately and moving quickly on closing the deal. For marketing and lead generation, you need to figure out the three most important metrics you need to cover and orient on those. That will make everything else easier. Referrals are a big indicator of both effectiveness and product-market fit. Try to avoid measuring too many metrics at the same time. You need to think about business development from the customer's buying process and how you can remove as much friction from their buying process as possible. Make it as easy to buy from you as possible. Focus on a positive buying experience and make it easy for the customer. Being customer-centered will be extremely valuable in everything you work on.     Mentioned in this Episode: GrowBIGPlaybook.com habitat.org linkedin.com/in/jonathanreckford Our Better Angels: Seven Simple Virtues That Will Change Your Life and the World by Jonathan Reckford katrina@kcjconsult.com linkedin.com/in/tylersweatt secondfront.com

    Mo asks Henning Streubel: When was the moment that growth and business development was something you wanted to focus on? Henning is intrinsically motivated to help people, but it's less about business development and sales. Whenever he meets someone, he has a tendency to ask deep questions. Early in his career working for a utility client in Germany, he realized that the client's company had many more problems than he initially thought which he discovered by simply having a deep conversation. Because of those conversations, the client was able to take Henning's thoughts and ideas back to her boss and make positive changes. For Henning, relationship development starts with insights, which allows you to create an impact and trust. Many highly analytical people have difficulty talking about anything outside of the project. Henning recommends understanding that everyone is a human being which means they share a common foundation. Being genuine about being curious is key. Don't just use small talk as a way to open a conversation. Follow up on the topics and go deeper. This shows your interest in them as a human being. Establishing a personal relationship makes connecting with them easier outside the context of the work. It creates an entry point that lets you have the impact you want to have. When you open up on your experience, you become more vulnerable and that creates a better foundation for trust. This was something that Henning had to learn and practice. Having a few stories in your back pocket can make it easier.   Mo asks Linda Klein: When was the moment that you realized that growth was great? Linda separates the ideas of business development and building a relationship. In the beginning of Linda's career as a lawyer, she spent a lot of time learning about her client's business and that relationship building always paid off. It's not about developing the business, it's about developing the relationship. Linda tells the story of how her grandfather started a grocery business in the early days of the Great Depression, how understanding and getting to know the people in the community became a crucial reason for their success, how that also inspired Linda and how she built her career. When meeting new people, Linda is always looking for the things outside the day-to-day business relationship that are important to them. There is always a place where you can connect. It's important to be hireable and to share your expertise, but it's more important to be human first. Start with something relatable instead of leading with your area of expertise and what services you can offer. The number one correlation to likeability is commonality. Always look for the common areas you can connect on. Every conversation and interaction you have will be different, but the person you're speaking with will always give you clues. By offering details and asking for details, you're going to find areas of commonality. It's extremely important for diverse members of your team to feel like they can find areas to connect.   Mo asks Mark Harris: Tell me a story of when you realized that you needed to focus on business development. Mark takes us back to the summer of 1994 when he took on a job selling books door-to-door, a path that some of the most successful rainmakers have followed. It started off as a way to make more money than working at the local McDonald's but it became a skill that Mark learned he could get better at. All skills are both learned and earned. Mark was initially not good at sales at all and after 12 hours of hearing no, he decided to flip his approach and try to make a connection with the person first. He also learned that he needed to create little wins throughout the day to manage his energy and motivation. The steps to a purchase are the same no matter what you're selling. Connect with the person first and find out if you can solve their needs. Mark also learned how to deal with his emotions at that time, and when he figured out how to do that he became a lot more relatable and fun to be around. That whole first summer was all about being more relatable to people immediately after meeting them. After a couple sales, Mark figured out what he was really providing people with, and it wasn't a book. When he took the focus off the money and made it about helping the other person, the sale became much easier. By breaking the process into each individual piece, Mark created a series of small wins that were under his control. Even a rejection can be a learning experience. When you put yourself outside your comfort zone, you become more capable emotionally of handling the experience and more likely to overcome the next hurdle, and every hurdle you jump builds your confidence. Think about what you can do every single day to get you closer to your ultimate win. You don't know when your next sale is going to happen, but if you can focus on what you can control it will happen.     Mentioned in this Episode: GrowBIGPlaybook.com linkedin.com/in/henning-streubel-phd on.bcg.com/henning - Use the envelope icon on this page to get in touch with Henning directly lklein@bakerdonelson.com linkedin.com/in/lindakleinlaw Mark_C_Harris@glic.com linkedin.com/in/mark-harris-9ba1b53

Episode Highlights [03:08] What Is Photobiomodulation? Photobiomodulation or PBM utilises the way light physically affects the human body instead of light's effects on our cognitive and mental faculties. Light wavelengths of 600 to 1100 nanometers (nm) have therapeutic purposes. Blue or ultraviolet light is an excellent disinfectant but can't penetrate deeply due to its shorter wavelength.  At the red end of the colour spectrum, infrared light may overheat heat or burn cells. There's a sweet spot near the red end that has a nice combination of penetration but without the negative cellular effect.   [05:21] How Light Gets into the Body One way to get light into the body is intranasally. There's a profusion of blood cells very close to the surface in the sinuses, so it's a good place to penetrate the blood. Dr Lew Lim, founder and CEO of Vielight, discovered the non-invasive intranasal method.  Another path is transcranial using diodes. Vielight's goal has always been to develop and design low-power rechargeable devices that are easy and safe to use at home. Vielight did a study with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), proving that the whole brain is affected by light diodes.   [10:21] Neuro Alpha and Neuro Gamma Vielight's product, Neuro Alpha, pulses at 10 Hz, helping the brain resonate in the alpha wave band. Neuro Gamma, pulsing at 40 Hz, was designed mainly to address the reduction in beta-amyloid plaques, which may be associated with Alzheimer's disease.  The effect of the two products has yet to be rigorously scientifically quantified, but users have reported significant benefits. Many sports professionals and psychological trainers use Vielight's products to prepare for a match or game. After Peter was in an accident, Neuro Alpha calmed him down while he had a concussion. He used the Neuro Gamma to help alleviate brain fog while at work.   [13:32] Healing Mechanisms of PBM There is an increase in glutamate after a traumatic brain injury, which leads to neurons constantly firing and dying, so glutamate level needs to be controlled post-concussion. Vielight recently completed a study on forty retired athletes with repetitive head injuries at the University of Utah. Pre- and post-fMRIs showed increased blood flow in the brain. One of the key mechanisms of PBM delivered intranasally is a change in the viscosity, which increases microcirculation. PBM also increases nitric oxide and leads to a reduced oxygen species effect.  PBM increases adenosine triphosphate (ATP) levels — a good indicator of immune function. The Cytochrome c oxidase leads to increased oxygen at the ATP synthase, which increases ATP production. [35:30] 633 Red, 655 Prime, 810 Infrared and Neuro Pro Vielight's 633 red uses a light-emitting diode (LED), while 655 Prime is a red laser diode with more power and penetration. Both products bioinfuse the blood. 810 Infrared is near the infrared band, and its diode produces a red glow. Near-infrared diodes can go into the deep brain.  Neuro Pro uses six diodes and an intranasal. Users control each diode with an app, where they can change the power, pulse frequency, and phase. The device can go from 0 Hz up to 10 kilohertz.  Vielight's products can help address neurodegeneration, which can come from repeated brain injuries usually experienced by athletes. [35:30] X-Plus and Neuro Vielight's X-plus has an intranasal and applicator. Users can use it with Neuro devices to reach the back of the head or other body parts.  Recently Vielight completed a clinical trial with COVID-positive patients, wherein X-Plus was used to stimulate the immune system of the thymus.  X-Plus can also be used to repair wounds from injuries in the bones and muscles. Vielight's Neuro uses four diodes, covering the default mode network of the brain.  7 Powerful Quotes “One of the key mechanisms of photobiomodulation, especially directly into the blood through the nose, is a change in the viscosity, increasing the microcirculation, and also an increase in nitric oxide, which is another great healer as well. And, of course, then there's the reduced oxygen species effect, so inflammation gets affected too. So there's a whole bunch of effects that seem to be happening in parallel.” “I think there's hope for Alzheimer's. I just saw another study with autism come out of Italy using neuro as well, which looks really promising.” “I always caution people to think that photobiomodulation is the answer to Alzheimer's. I think even if you look at, for example, antipsychotic drugs, anticonvulsant drugs, all of them, you're not gonna say that one is going to fix everything, and the chances of one fixing anything is less than 30%. [It's] the hit rate.” “It's my belief that underlying conditions that cause plaque in the brain could come from a myriad of sources, and I think it depends on your own individual profile, or physiological profile and chemical pathogenic profile.” “I think a lot of us have now over-excited brains from brain injuries, from toxins in the environment, from the wrong foods and inflammation, and all of the things that sort of happen. Trying to come down and get it in the right zone at the right time is definitely very, very important.” “...The gamma brainwave state of sleep, when you enter that state, that's the key detox part of the brain at night. And so, there is definitely something there to be sought, I think. If you can do it in meditation during the daytime, I think that's even better.” “There's always another quest to research, and it's really patient-reported outcomes that give us great spirit.” Resources Listen to the podcast episode: Photobiomodulation - What it is and how it helps.

    Podcast Participants: Mike Baldzicki (AscellaHealth), Randy Falkenrath (President, Onco360), Justin Manning, PharmD (Group Vice President, Business Development, Vivid Clear Rx) Summary: The specialty pharmacy patient journey is a process, and it starts at the point of care with patient and prescriber, and it goes all the way through the treatment of therapy. Specialty Pharmacy is defined as the service created to manage the handling and service requirements of specialty pharmaceuticals, including dispensing, distribution, reimbursement, case-management and other services specific to patients with rare and/or chronic diseases. There are a lot of extra steps in dispensing a specialty medication, so there's a lot of work to be done by pharmacists and care coordination teams before the specialty drug is given to the patient. Obviously, there's a higher cost, and so it takes more personnel and systems, so there is more patient coordination needed prior to the pharmacy to dispense that specialty medication. The value of the specialty pharmacist in helping patients to access treatment, adhere to treatment, and really get the best possible outcome of treatment really cannot be overstressed as specialty pharmacist are often responsible for selecting the most appropriate therapy based on the patient's clinical and financial profile or reviewing that prescribed medication to ensure access for the patient. The Specialty Pharmacy Care Teams provide significant mentoring to patients to ensure not only safety but also effectiveness and being proactive and changing therapy so that patients are really getting the best possible benefit or changing to a different medication that may give them a better effect. The specialty pharmacists are an anchor during therapy that they can rely on to make sure that they are helping them deal with complex, challenging, and sometimes lifelong therapies as the specialty care teams play an important role in the patient care journey.

    Mo asks Scott Winter: When was the moment that you realized that business development was great? Scott started his career off in sales with LexisNexis and that developed into a role in consulting. Eventually he made the switch to a product management position with Interaction where he focused on CRM and client relationships. Interaction is the world's largest CRM system for law firms and by coming up in that environment, Scott learned a lot about the technical aspects of the software which helped him better serve his clients. Scott had the typical mindset about sales in college that most people have, but he reframed his perspective after getting some actual experience in sales positions. The one key moment when Scott realized that business development was a powerful tool for growth was after having a simple conversation with someone on a plan. Just listening carefully and remembering what he learned blew that person away when they met again many months later. Scott has a knack for having a conversation on any subject and being able to find a point of connection. He also tends to add notes in his phone of a particularly interesting detail (powerlifting, ironman training, etc.) and makes use of his CRM to keep track of everything. Remembering details about someone is an art and a science, but there are tools you can use to make it easier.   Mo asks Dennis Baltz: When did you realize that business development is something that would be interesting to you? Dennis's interest in business development goes all the way back to his high school days in 1987, where he was trying to find people to participate in market studies. It was a tough gig and he had to stretch outside his comfort zone to get things done. Knowing that he had something of value to offer to the people gave him the confidence to ask for something they may not be initially open to. Dennis learned to be interested in the person first and think about the value he could provide, instead of assuming the ‘no' right away. Dennis has been on all sides of the transaction when it comes to risk during his career, so that gives him some perspective on what potential buyers are looking for. Initial meetings are simply about identifying problems and how you can be helpful. Preparing for the meetings ahead of time is crucial to Dennis's success. Following up usually involves finding resources or people to connect the prospect with that can help solve the problem in the meantime. Introducing techniques from another industry is a great way to appeal to a potential client's desire for both safety and innovation. On the human side of things, Dennis realized that he needed to stay in front of clients at the beginning of the pandemic and that turned into a monthly blog post that he sends to clients and colleagues. Being open and vulnerable, and sharing some of the personal elements of his life, have had a tremendous impact.   Mo asks Andrew Cogar: When did you realize that business development was really important? It really clicked when Andrew started thinking about business development not as a means of getting business but as a means for the firm to get the business they need to forge their own path. After one particular project that went exceedingly well, Andrew understood that those kinds of projects could become a habit rather than a lucky break. The GrowBIG System is essentially about doing the right things so that you have control over the kinds of clients you work with. Being proactive gives you so much work that you can pick and choose the projects that you want most. It's easier to be reactive on the front end because you don't have to do the introspective work it takes to shape your vision and be proactive on finding the right business. It's easier in the long term to adopt the right principles to attract the right clientele. Mo and Andrew do a review of their recent experience working together. In terms of business development, Andrew was simply looking to get to know Mo and the family and understand what he was looking for. As an architect, Andrew is hoping to gauge how open someone is to suggestions and that's an intentional part of the conversation. At the end of the day, who Andrew works for and who he works with, has become more important to him and the firm than what he works on. Do a little research before a client meeting and come with a set of questions and follow-up questions for them. Don't be afraid to give some ideas away during the meeting. When you give away a little, you get value back in the things you learn. If you go in with a sales pitch, you don't learn anything. Show up with questions, not qualifications.     Mentioned in this Episode: GrowBIGPlaybook.com scott@index.io Scott Winter on LinkedIn linkedin.com/in/dennisbaltz dennis.baltz@willistowerswatson.com historicalconcepts.com Visions of Home

    Mo asks Brian Caffarelli: When was the moment that you realized that business development was something you wanted to focus on? Brian's first job out of college was in selling automobiles as a wholesaler to dealerships. Everything began for Brian with his first sale, and how that came about because of developing a relationship with another human being. Seeing salespeople that were successful and respected helped Brian navigate what it took to grow in a sales career. So much of success is simply about being in the environment and paying attention. If you want to grow your skills, start with the fundamentals of communication and psychology. It's also important to apply what you learn along the way instead of just taking it in. Consider what you've done well and what you could have done better. Translating his business development skills to a virtual environment is something that Brian is working on, as well as working on learning new things and being open to seeing things differently. A recent study revealed the Learned Dogmatism effect and how people tend to become more closed-minded the more expert they become in a specific domain. One of the keys to Brian's success is striving against that and always being willing to learn.   Mo asks Katrina Johnson: Tell us the moment when you realized that business development was good and worth doing? Katrina's big aha moment was when she realized that the skill of business development can be learned. She started in academia and fell into consulting almost by accident, and she enjoyed her consulting work but she felt like her hands were tied. As a subcontractor, Katrina wasn't able to deliver the work in the way that she thought would be the most powerful for her clients. It wasn't until Katrina met Mo and learned about the GrowBIG system did she realize what was missing from her work. With a background in neural science, Katrina knew that the research and material were pointing her in the right direction, but in some ways digging into the research was also a curse. Katrina sometimes falls into the habit of using research as a way to hide and avoid putting it into practice. This is where her second big realization came into play, and that she had some underlying issue that was preventing her from executing. She decided to start off small and refine the process from a place of action. She began by going to networking events and trying to follow up with people, most of those efforts didn't pan out though. She landed a few speaking engagements with small groups of people and used that as a basis to create a relationship with people. She embraced deeper relationships rather than looser connections and in doing so stretched herself outside of her comfort zone. She doesn't set out to get meetings with important decision makers, but that often flows from naturally deepening relationships with people and being helpful. Katrina learned a lot about the value of targeting over the last year.

There was not one moment, but a story stands out in particular for Cannon.

When a professional services firm reaches a certain revenue threshold, the same things that got them to that point won't help grow past it. Simply hiring a rainmaker won't necessarily solve the problem. You need a broader team working towards business development to tap a broader network to grow a firm. The real mindset shift that unlocks the power of business development is “Are you selling, or are you helping to solve problems?” Take the sales hat off and integrate yourself into your client's lives. Understand what their problems are, and if you can be alongside them during the inevitable transitions in their life, you can deepen the relationship. It's about relevancy and solving problems. The sales and referrals will come naturally out of that. Life has transitions that create challenges along the way.

    Mo asks Brian Caffarelli: When was the moment that you realized that business development was something you wanted to focus on? Brian's first job out of college was in selling automobiles as a wholesaler to dealerships. Everything began for Brian with his first sale, and how that came about because of developing a relationship with another human being. Seeing salespeople that were successful and respected helped Brian navigate what it took to grow in a sales career. So much of success is simply about being in the environment and paying attention. If you want to grow your skills, start with the fundamentals of communication and psychology. It's also important to apply what you learn along the way instead of just taking it in. Consider what you've done well and what you could have done better. Translating his business development skills to a virtual environment is something that Brian is working on, as well as working on learning new things and being open to seeing things differently. A recent study revealed the Learned Dogmatism effect and how people tend to become more closed-minded the more expert they become in a specific domain. One of the keys to Brian's success is striving against that and always being willing to learn.   Mo asks Katrina Johnson: Tell us the moment when you realized that business development was good and worth doing? Katrina's big aha moment was when she realized that the skill of business development can be learned. She started in academia and fell into consulting almost by accident, and she enjoyed her consulting work but she felt like her hands were tied. As a subcontractor, Katrina wasn't able to deliver the work in the way that she thought would be the most powerful for her clients. It wasn't until Katrina met Mo and learned about the GrowBIG system did she realize what was missing from her work. With a background in neural science, Katrina knew that the research and material were pointing her in the right direction, but in some ways digging into the research was also a curse. Katrina sometimes falls into the habit of using research as a way to hide and avoid putting it into practice. This is where her second big realization came into play, and that she had some underlying issue that was preventing her from executing. She decided to start off small and refine the process from a place of action. She began by going to networking events and trying to follow up with people, most of those efforts didn't pan out though. She landed a few speaking engagements with small groups of people and used that as a basis to create a relationship with people. She embraced deeper relationships rather than looser connections and in doing so stretched herself outside of her comfort zone. She doesn't set out to get meetings with important decision makers, but that often flows from naturally deepening relationships with people and being helpful. Katrina learned a lot about the value of targeting over the last year. She realized that when she can work with the management of an organization in some combination of assessment and coaching she's at her best.   Mo asks Cannon Carr: When did you realize that business development was great? There was not one moment, but a story stands out in particular for Cannon. When his father was retiring from the firm he was working at, he told him that he was a great analyst but not a great salesperson, and if he wanted to succeed, he would need to figure that out.

    Mo asks Craig Budner: When did you realize that business development is good? Craig's brother was a litigator and from an early age had his own firm. This taught Craig the necessity of creating a brand and cultivating referral sources in order to grow the firm. Craig took a slightly different path from his brother in that he joined one of the firms in Texas. It was there that he created the relationships and connections that made him realize the value of being an advisor to someone and not just on legal issues. After creating a relationship with one of the firm's important executive clients, a partner encouraged Craig to run with what he was doing. During his associate days, Craig learned the value of doing a great job for clients and nurturing relationships. When he understood that clients were actual multiple sources of revenue, and that if he could cultivate relationships with people directly in his path of work delivery, he started to get the first call. He was being trusted by the people in charge of important projects, and that gave him the opportunity to do more fun kinds of work. How do you advise others to think about business development? Demystifying business development is the first step. The characteristics of good parents, friends, and listeners are the characteristics that make a good business developer. It's not about the money at the end of the line, it's about growth and learning, and getting better at putting yourself in the shoes of someone else. What do you think about mutually beneficial relationships? You have to be a better listener than a talker to develop deep relationships. If you're always thinking about what you're going to say, you're not going to get enough information out of that relationship to make it mutually beneficial. Think about how you can be helpful to that person. You can leave a positive impression on that person by reflecting back that you have heard them and you're going to try to advance their issue.   Mo asks Bill Ruprecht: When did you first start thinking about business development as something important that you wanted to do? Bill spent many years in business when there were two kinds of business development. The first was a form of gunslinging more focused on extracting value and the second was centered around building more long term relationships. Inevitably, you come to realize that building relationships and adding relevance to potential customers is the way to go. There are three ways to differentiate a business: be an innovator and make things that no one has seen before, be cheap and provide the lowest cost service, or you can be customer centric and know more about your customers than anyone else in the world. Nobody should own a client. The team should always work together to get the job done well. If you have a lot of history with a client or they demand that a particular person is involved, that should be accepted. The end result of a deal is always a combination of relationship and price. In Bill's line of work, certain clients tend to push on price but that always makes things tougher. Chasing the margins on a deal down to the point where the service provider doesn't care about the outcome is always a poor choice. For another client, Bill tells the story of a semi-regular delivery of BLT sandwiches and how they were a barometer of the relationship. They may not have gotten the business because of the sandwiches, but they definitely didn't hurt.   Mo asks Andrew Robertson: When did you first realize that business development or relationship development was a good thing? The first time Andrew realized business development was fundamentally about discipline was while working as a barman in Maidenhead where he learned how to connect with people and build rapport very quickly. It was there he met an insurance broker that offered him a job. As a student working in the evenings, Andrew learned that if he made 100 phone calls on Monday night he could line up 10 meetings for the rest of the week, which would usually result in 3 sales. He started experimenting with the approach he was taught and learned two important lessons very quickly. The method he was taught was tried and tested, and if he didn't do the work of making the calls, he didn't get the results he needed. No one else was going to make those calls if he didn't do it. He wasn't in the relationship-building business yet, that came later. Andrew learned the importance of discipline and trusting the process. The idea that people are born with the habits that make them successful is incorrect. Discipline can be learned like any area of expertise. The most important thing is to get a meeting, not to have everything prepared. Don't get ahead of yourself. If you focus on the delivery first, you'll never set the meeting in the first place. You need to pick up the phone and offer them something valuable and interesting as quickly as you can. That's how you earn the time to develop a relationship afterward. Pulling insights from other proposals and using them to intrigue other prospects enough to get a meeting is a good example of an offer that gets people interested. You don't always have to go straight to the ultimate decision maker. Getting a meeting with a mid-level manager can be a great opportunity too. Every meeting is useful in learning more about the company or the industry.     Mentioned in this Episode: GrowBIGPlaybook.com craig.budner@klgates.com K&L Gates Client Conversations Podcast andrew.robertson@bbdo.com

    Today I'm joined by Argo AI, a forward-thinking transport technology business who are on a mission to make the world's streets and roadways safe, accessible and useful for all, through the power of self-driving technology. With a team of self-driven engineers, strategists, product managers, and more – from over 50 countries – Argo are utilizing self-driving products and services to transform the movement of people and goods, benefiting communities around the world, and empowering both people and businesses to be more successful. Today Lehren MacKay, Head of Business Development at Argo AI, joins me to chat all about the company: what they do; the landscape of autonomous technology; embracing a culture of safety; and why self-driving technology has profound potential to transform the way we live and move.   IN THIS EPISODE WE DISCUSS:   [06.23] The current landscape when it comes to autonomous vehicles, and why it's a growing focus for many businesses. “It's really exciting times – we are seeing a lot of investment in the autonomous vehicles space and a focus on a lot of diverse applications of the technology, ranging from delivery to ride share to trucking.” [08.29] An overview of Argo – what they do, and how they help their customers. “We have had a really collaborative process with our customers, creating relationships that drive mutual benefits and ultimately thinking about how we can future proof their businesses.” [11.59] Mapping, sensing, planning and acting – the four key steps in how Argo's autonomous technology works. [14.18] The relationship between AI and people, and why it's important to harness the power that comes from both working seamlessly together. "We often think about ‘how are we designing products, with people and customers in mind?' And so for us, our key purpose is ‘how do we think about reimagining the human journey?' [16.26] A closer look at Argo's Autonomous Delivery service, and the value it's bringing to both the middle and last mile for customers. “We're seeing a re-emergence of the urban middle mile… and as part of this change, we're seeing new delivery middle mile use cases.” [19.04] From tackling efficiency issues to addressing sustainability goals, the positive impact autonomous vehicles can have on the industry. “There are a lot of driver shortages impacting delivery schedules, and we think autonomous vehicles can actually become that reliable driver supply to meet increasing volume and demands.” [21.53] Why safety is a core value at Argo, and why autonomous vehicles have the potential to revolutionize the safety of our roads. “We are ultimately designing a driver that never gets tired, never gets distracted – and never drinks too much!” [25.07] Argo's ethos of benefiting communities, and empowering both people and businesses. [27.11] The ideal client for Argo. [29.09] A case study, showing how Argo supported a key client with store-to-store rebalancing, in order to help them meet changing customer demands. [32.56] The future for Argo, and for autonomous vehicles.   RESOURCES AND LINKS MENTIONED:   Head over to Argo AI's website now to find out more and discover how they could help you too.

    Mo asks Cyril Peupion: When was the moment you realized that growth was great? Cyril started his own business with a partner after completing his MBA so he had an interest in business development right from the beginning. With time, he realized how much he had to learn about sales and relationship building. Impact is a keyword in how Cyril views the world. If he had only one principle piece of advice to give to people, it would be to prioritize your calendar according to impact. Cyril tells the story of a client he was working with and the impact on their life the work had. As great as getting to inbox zero and having an organized and neat work environment, being able to sleep at night and actually turn off her mind was completely life-changing. When you have something as powerful and impactful on people's lives, business development becomes easy and natural. Cyril considers his business to be in service to his clients. When you change your way of working it changes your life, which is why Cyril doesn't view his work as business development. Instead, he sees it as bringing his service to the people that need it. When it comes to prioritizing for impact, you have to start with a mind shift. High performers don't look at when things are due, they look at the impact of the things they need to do first. Think quarterly, plan weekly, and act daily. Thinking quarterly is one of the most effective time frames to think about work while incorporating your long-term vision. Planning each week is an important tempo for progressing your top two or three priorities. A crisis will arrive eventually, but you need to run your tasks through the four-word framework of What Impact Long-Term.   Mo asks Debby Moorman: Tell me the moment when you decided that business development is something that you wanted to focus on. Debby fell into business development almost by accident when she was in college after taking a sales job one summer. The key realization was when she figured out that she liked helping people solve their problems, and that was when she decided to shift her focus to professional sales. Debby went on to a professional sales role out of college where most of the training was technical in focus. It wasn't until Debby moved into a national leadership role did she realize that business development skills are just as important as technical skills. That was when she became connected with Mo and the GrowBIG system. Now that Debby is consulting, the focus on business development is even more important. As a service provider, the reality is that you are helping your clients solve their problems, and that is the essence of business development. Companies tend to focus on technical training because there is often so much information to learn and such a large need for that information, businesses are incentivized to pay attention to it. An organization that wants to grow has to invest in its people beyond the technical side. Companies often throw structure at an issue in an attempt to solve a problem. Take the word sales out of your mind if you're just getting started with business development. Retool your brain to frame the conversation as a way of figuring out what the other person needs and how you can help. If you can do that, the conversation becomes less intimidating.   Mo asks Mike Duffy: When was the moment that you decided that business development was important and you needed to get great at it? Mike's dad started in sales so he had a front row seat on making sales from the very beginning. He started his sales career by  selling ad space in a travel magazine, and once he got out of college, Mike started selling ladies clothes in California. He took a $500,000 territory and in 18 months turned it into $2.5 million. He won salesman of the year at the age of 24 and ended up having a beer with his sales manager which led to a conversation that changed everything for him. Mike took a deep dive into discovering what really makes a good sales program and he became a student of sales for the rest of his career. Mike teaches lawyers business development now under the assumption that he has to sell the idea to his students. The goal is to help them understand that adding value to a relationship or closing a deal is sales by another name. If we want to live the life we want, we have to get great at growth. Start with the people you are going to call and how you can have a conversation that creates curiosity. That allows you to learn about what they need. Business development is about helping people. Business development habits set you apart when it comes to employment as well. It's hard to ascertain someone's technical expertise in a 30-minute interview, but it's obvious when you care, listen intently, and make the conversation about the other person. You always have to be thinking about the long game. Some prospects may not turn into clients for years, so you need to focus on just moving the ball a little bit further each day. Be transparent, have humility, and be honest. Tell people when they are your #1 target and allow them to shape the relationship in a way that's valuable for them.     Mentioned in this Episode: GrowBIGPlaybook.com wslb.com debby.moorman@willistowerswatson.com Debby Moorman on LinkedIn Mike Duffy on LinkedIn
