“The purpose, values and principles — John Smale understood the importance of the soul of the company.” Bob McDonald & Bob Gill are two P&G Alumni who share many things in common, least of which is their first name. The first is no stranger to this podcast — Bob McDonald, who served as P&G's former CEO from 2009-2013, and was the United States Secretary of Veterans Affairs from 2014-2017. And our second guest is another well known Alum to many P&G Executives — Bob GIll - who served at P&G for 28 years in many senior leadership positions - from 1974 to 2002, where he had more than a few interactions with John Smale. Both of this episode's Bobs - McDonald and Gill — have a lot to share about the purpose-inspired, caring, yet demanding and principled leader that was John Smale. For this month's podcasts, we'll be hearing reflections from leaders on John Smale, P&G's former Chairman & CEO, who led P&G from 1981-1990, and served as General Motors' Chairman from 1992-1995. These conversions are in honor o f the new book "Here Forever: The Timeless Impact of John Smale on Procter & Gamble, General Motors, and the Purpose and Practice of Business" (by Rob Garver), available now. While John Smale passed away in 2011 - he is arguably one the most influential leaders of the modern era, growing P&G more than six-fold in his tenure. And yet, Smale is largely unknown to many leaders guiding American and global businesses today. John's leadership in developing a vision for corporate purpose was decades ahead of its time. This was a book years in the making by not just the author, but many of some of the biggest leaders in business. “Here Forever” is a compelling and insightful read we'd highly recommend, and will make a great holiday gift for the admired, or aspiring leaders in your life.

On episode 6 of season 3, I continued my conversation with Dr. Stephen Klasko, who was the president of Thomas Jefferson University and CEO of Jefferson Health from 2013-2021. Under his leadership, Jefferson expanded from 3 hospitals to 18, and saw its revenue grow from $1.8 to $9 billion. Dr. Klasko was #2 on Modern Healthcare's “100 Most Influential Individuals”. He is also the co-author of 2020's UnHealthcare: A Manifesto for Health Assurance with Silicon Valley investor Hemant Taneja, and is currently an executive in residence at General Catalyst. In the second half of this two-part episode, Dr. Klasko and I discussed some of the systemic issues in U.S. Healthcare.  We started with a discussion of behavioral health, and how we will need to think differently about clinician/patient interactions to get at the root of the problem, starting with acting more proactively.   The antidote to much of what ails us, in Dr. Klasko's opinion, is healthcare at any address (i.e. Jefferson sent a nursing student  into the home of an asthma patient with 10 previous ED visits that resulted from asthma exacerbations. The nursing student discovered mold, and so Jefferson sent a handyman to fix it at a fraction of the cost of an inpatient admission). Nobody wakes up in the morning and says "I am going to telebank", and yet we talk about meeting people where they are (tele-health, homecare, etc.) as though it's novel.  Dr. Klasko's vision was that Jefferson would one day no longer be defined as a hospital system, but as a system that provided healthcare at any address. He asks, rhetorically, "Why would you want to be defined by the place where you've in essence failed to keep people healthy?" Despite advocating un-scaling, in order to innovate, Dr. Klasko freely admits that he grew Jefferson from 3 hospitals to 18. Yet, these mergers allowed him to obtain huge geographic proximity - nobody was more than 10 or 15 minutes from a Jefferson facility. As a result of facilities owned by the hospitals they bought, Jefferson was also able to obtain massive primary care networks, further contributing to the vision of healthcare at any address. We spoke about Tandigm's partnership with Penn and IBC, and what it will take for that partnership to bear fruits for the clinicians and patients involved. Finally, we discussed mergers and acquisitions, and the future of our healthcare system. Dr. Klasko can be found on Twitter and Linkedin.

On episode 5 of season 3, the first of this two-part episode, I spoke with Dr. Stephen Klasko about his unlikely journey from OBGYN to the president of Thomas Jefferson University and CEO of Jefferson Health from 2013-2021. Under his leadership, Jefferson expanded from 3 hospitals to 18, and saw its revenue grow from $1.8 to $9 billion. Dr. Klasko was #2 on Modern Healthcare's “100 Most Influential Individuals”. He is also the co-author of 2020's UnHealthcare: A Manifesto for Health Assurance with Silicon Valley investor Hemant Taneja, and is currently an executive in residence at General Catalyst. Dr. Klasko and I began the episode discussing the creation of the Jefferson Italy Center in Rome and partnership with Gemelli Hospital. Jefferson's presence in Italy highlighted one of the ironies of U.S. Healthcare - while we claim to be on the cutting edge of innovation when it comes to healthcare, we create serious barriers to entry. The CEO of Marriott Hotels in Italy can be a CEO in the U.S., but if you are the head of cardiovascular surgery at Shanghai university and you come to the U.S., we make you retake your residency. We also shun the use of alternative medicine, which is used to treat 2/3 of the world's population, because it doesn't fall into the familiar categories of surgery or drugs (Jefferson created the Marcus center for Integrative Health which is taking the best of care that happens around the world that is not just drugs and surgery).Jefferson's uniquely international presence and perspective served the health system well during COVID. Their Italian hospital  served as the canary in the coal mine, and allowed Jefferson to have a clear picture of the damage that COVID would ultimately cause long before most of the U.S,.  Jefferson had also invested $50 million into Telehealth in 2014 and maintained the pandemic preparedness team it had stood up when Ebola (almost) hit. We touched on the state-level licensure requirements and how much the emergency protocols reduced tensions around credentialing. The idea that someone might need a different debit card to pull money out in every state is ridiculous, and yet in healthcare, it is the status quo in credentialing because it often aligns with the vested interests of the incumbents.Dr. Klasko blames the system in its entirety for the fact that while predominantly underserved people died because they didn't get care during the pandemic, insurers quadrupled their net operating income because people they thought would get care died.

The values you uphold are one of the most crucial aspects of leadership. Knowing and promoting those values as a leader helps you influence and govern your team in the right direction. And by adhering to your values, you inspire others to follow and adopt them.   In this episode of Fifth Dimensional Leadership, I interview Harry Kraemer, Jr. Harry is an executive partner at Madison Dearborn Partners, a private equity firm based in Chicago. He is also a Clinical Professor of Leadership at Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management.  In our conversation, Harry talks about leading and positively influencing people through values-based leadership.   Harry is the author of three best-selling leadership books: From Values to Action: The Four Principles of Values-Based Leadership; Becoming The Best: Build a World-Class Organization Through Values-Based Leadership. and Your 168: Finding Purpose and Satisfaction in a Values-Based Life.   Harry is the former chairman and CEO of Baxter International Inc., a $13 billion global healthcare company. He joined Baxter in 1982 as director of corporate development and was named senior vice president and chief financial officer in 1993. In the following years, he assumed additional responsibility in Baxter's Renal and Medication Delivery businesses, was elected to Baxter's board of directors in 1995, and was named president of Baxter International Inc. in 1997.    Harry graduated summa cum laude from Lawrence University of Wisconsin with a bachelor's degree in mathematics and economics. He received an MBA degree in finance and accounting from Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management and is a certified public accountant.  Things you will also learn in this episode: Putting things in perspective through math. Three things Harry did as CEO at Baxter that drove success. Distinguishing between values and preferences What it means to be liked vs. being respected. Examples of effective communication and setting boundaries. Quotes: “It's when you get to explain things that you realize you understand it.” - Harry Kraemer   “Values are non-negotiable, must not be compromised, and should be laid out very clearly.” - Harry Kraemer   “As a leader, when you're leading, the goal is not to be right; the goal is to do the right thing.” - Harry Kraemer   “This whole idea of leadership has nothing to do with titles and organizational charts, but it has everything to do with the ability to influence people.” - Harry Kraemer   “The more you know about any topic, the more you know how little you know. - Harry Kraemer   “You can learn something from every single person you encounter, and when that light goes on and you realize how much you can learn by every encounter, it changes your life.” - Harry Kraemer   “Develop a balanced perspective… seek to understand before you are understood.” - Harry Kraemer

“Don't you dare sell anything you wouldn't want your grandmother to have,” says Richard Davis. “Get it off the shelf!” This ‘Grandmother Quotient' is one of many leadership principles that the former CEO of U.S. Bank and now President & CEO of Make a Wish America shares in this episode. It's no secret that U.S. Bank during Richard's (nearly two-decade) tenure set a standard of excellence, frequently being cited as one of the best places to work in America; racking up prestigious international awards for ethical business practice; and generating industry-leading returns to shareholders. In this masterclass on principled, servant-leadership, Richard unpacks that elusive success. He recounts his rise from humble bank teller to CEO of one of the biggest banks in America, touching on key inflection points in his career such as leading U.S. Bank through the Great Recession and supporting employees and customers through social unrest in the 2010s. “In our lives, we need to look around and see people with potential,” Richard says, reflecting on a bank manager named Cindy, who mentored him early in his career and set him on his path of leadership in banking. “Financial services,” he says, is all about the “word services–what you do for others and what you give back.” His insightful, pointed commentary on why “we shouldn't set goals, but directions,” or why we should always be the person to “take the next hardest assignment, not promotion,” is relevant to students and professionals alike. One of our first and foremost supporters at Scholars of Finance, Richard offers timeless wisdom through sincere stories. We hope this episode makes you a little wiser, just as it did for us. 00:00 - Background & Introduction 02:52 - Richard's Early Career as a Bank Teller 08:50 - Becoming CEO of U.S. Bank 10:38 - Leadership Paradigms & Values 14:28 - Compassionate Servant Leadership 18:30 - Ethics at U.S. Bank & Financial Performance 24:30 - Characteristics of World-Class CEOs 31:20 - Organizational Culture & Employee Wellness 35:00 - Non-Profits as a ‘Patchwork Quilt' 39:10 - Richard's Backstory with SOF

Yahya Mokhtarzada is the founder and former CEO of Truebill. Yahya and his team created growth of over $100 million in just 2 ½ years and then managed to sell the company for $1.3 billion! In this episode, Yahya breaks down how he made this a reality and how you can apply his processes to your own business KEY TAKEAWAYS Truebill is a personal finance app and Yahya has actually found that this market increases in times of financial uncertainty. People are more interested in getting their finances in order when times are harder. Paid acquisition is Truebill's most common strategy for growth. Their team are also very creative in getting the company name out there including e-commerce channels and podcast promotion. Organic growth and referrals aren't something that works for Truebill, Yahya believes this is because people don't want to talk about money, especially if it can be suggested they may be struggling. Unsatisfied with the market offerings of personal finance apps, Yahya set out to create Truebill, to make a personal finance simpler, putting money back into people's pockets without telling them what to spend their money on. Truebill has the ability to be able to cancel subscriptions etc in app, without the individual having to spend hours on the phone with various providers. Another unique feature is it's ability to scan your bills and find you better deals. Truebill becoming product-led, offering the most use and value for the customer is how they went from $1.5 million to $100 million in just 2 ½ years. They also allow their customers to choose their own price, from free tier up to $15 a month, depending on their individual needs. There is some stigma surrounding the personal finance market, this meant it took Yahya and his team longer than usual to find each round of investment. Yahya puts the continuous exponential growth of Truebill down to a few key things, such as having a great core product that people liked, their incredible marketing team and their investment in tracking and measurement. Intelligent tracking and measurement of their app allowed Truebill to adapt and pivot to their users' needs fast. BEST MOMENTS  “Organic growth was never a strong suit for our company” “I really think it's the best personal finance app out there, giving you a set of tools to understand your money and do better with it” “Most people are surprised to see how many things they are paying for each month and how much money is floating out of their account automatically” “Personal finance does not have the same engagement and user behaviour as you'd see in a game, photo sharing app or anything else” “We had a good core product that fundamentally people liked and found useful” “I'm really anti-survey, they can be really misleading and tell you the wrong thing” Do You Want The Closing Secrets That Helped Close Over $125 Million in New Business for Free?"  Grab them HERE: https://www.whalesellingsystem.com/closingsecrets   Ryan Staley Founder and CEO Whale Boss 312-848-7443 ryan@whalesellingsystem.com www.ryanstaley.io    EPISODE RESOURCES https://www.forbes.com/sites/karenwalker/2021/06/07/how-the-truebill-brothers-took-a-basement-idea-to-500m-valuation/ ABOUT THE SHOW How do you grow like a VC-backed company without taking on investors?

It is said that he people who have the most legendary careers are what you might think of as other-directed. The key to a successful life is to remove your joy blockers, and the goal of a career should be to, as Warren Buffett says, dance your way to work. We talk about all these and more on Christopher Lochhead: Follow Your Different with our guest David Novak. David Novak is the co-founder and was the CEO for 17 years of the legendary Yum! brands. Yum! is the world's largest restaurant company, which owns Kentucky Fried Chicken, Taco Bell, and many others. David also has an amazing podcast called How Leaders Lead, and a new book called Take Charge of You: how self-coaching can transform your life and your career. Learn how be a legendary leader, executive, and entrepreneur from the best by listening in to this episode. David Novak on Looking Back on his Career The conversation begins with David's new book, and how it is a window to his career and life, and the interesting events and tidbits that go along with it. “I was the first kid in my family to get a college education, got a degree in journalism, didn't get an MBA, ended up becoming a CEO, and have the time of my life building a fantastic company. Now I'm in my next phase of my life where I'm fortunate enough to be able to spend time on the things that truly give me joy.” – David Novak Nowadays, David focuses on Leadership Development, and shares his thoughts and insights in his podcast, How Leaders Lead by David Novak. He also has time to write books, which has been a big passion of his. David Novak on Reaching One's Goals and What Comes After The topic shifts on how most of the books and guides in entrepreneurship that is published are focused on personal growth and development, but there are only a few on what happens when you achieve those goals. Because life doesn't stop when you reach those goals – there has to be something else to direct your passion into. David agrees and adds to it that after proving yourself and learning to manage and eventually lead people, the goal post shifts ever so slightly, and you find other ways to draw success. “Well, I have to tell you, that a lot of the research out there says that, you know, the people that are the happiest are other directed. What I've found is that the more other directed I got, the more I focused on other people's success more than my own, the more success I ultimately got. And, you know, it's kind of an amazing thing.” – David Novak On the Current State and Rising Up Again The conversation then goes to the current state of things, where inflation and the looming threat of recession is on the rise. David comments that there is current a huge divide, particularly in the haves and have nots, especially in the environment that they are in. That is not to say that there aren't any people who thrive in harsher environments, but David wishes that people would at least have the chance to nurture themselves and grow. “I hope one day, my goal is somehow from all the leadership development I do that there'll be one person that will rise up in this country and inspire people again.” – David Novak To hear more from David Novak and how you can take charge of you, download and listen to this episode.

This week's Misfit Entrepreneur is Chris Heller. Chris is the former CEO of Keller Williams Realty International. Chris has been a driving force and innovator in the real estate industry for over 3 decades and personally has sold over 3400 homes and ranked top 10 in the USA year after year. He's currently the Chief Real Estate Officer of OJO Labs, where he is shaping partner strategies, creating a cohesive structure and adoption between real estate professionals, consumers, and OJO. But I didn't ask Chris on to talk about how to sell homes, although we may get into some topics around that. No, I asked him to come on to discuss how he built his incredible businesses and to discuss his best-selling book, Dominant Thoughts – Things Grow Where Our Minds Go. ​ https://chrisheller.co/ When Chris was a sophomore in college, his dad called him up and told he was going to get his real estate license and work selling time shares in Lake Tahoe for the summer. He was super introverted. He was thrown into the deep end, but he quickly became very good at it. He then moved to San Diego where he bought his first real estate. He got burned out going to school part-time working 7 days a week selling time-shares. He then got into working in marketing. Eventually, he started a company with his roommate. Within 6 months, he had 40 employees. They were growing fast and moved into an office space. Within 6 months of that, they were out of business? His roommate/business partner had gotten into drugs and became an addict. It was dysfunctional and Chris had to get out. He did. It was 1989 and a real-estate broker whom he had met previously reached out to see if he wanted to sell homes. He took to gig and ended up being rookie of the year and never looked back. He went on to become one of Top 10 agents in the country out of 30,000+. He then went to Keller Williams and became a top agent there. He moved into leadership building out their international business. He didn't know what he was doing but figured it out and made it successful. They then asked him to be CEO of the company, which he did. He left in 2017. He met another self-made billionaire, the founder of Loan Depot and after meeting with him multiple times, he was asked to be the CEO of a new company funded by Loan Depot. He started on the board at OJO Labs and eventually moved over to be CEO. You recently published Dominant Thoughts. Talk to us about our conditioning and the way we think determining our results… 90% of what it takes to be successful is how we think, how we approach things, and how we react to things. The strength of your mind is critical to succeed in life. Rules for Winning and Rules for Life – can you give us some of those? Under promise and over deliver. When you do this, you set yourself and the client up for success. Do the RIGHT thing. In all areas of life, even when it is painful, hard, or not what everyone else is doing. Find the joy in everything you do. Do not worry what others think. Do not let what others think take you off your path or keep you from doing the right thing. Best advice on how to train the brain and develop thought patterns to handle adversity? Chris used affirmations and visualizations to train his mind. “I'm never down. I'm either up or getting up.” Nothing forges steel like fire. Adversity and getting through prepares you and helps you to handle more of it. We all have fear. The issue is whether we let it control us or not. Move through your fear very fast. Acknowledge it, feel, but then move through it to the other side. The stronger the mindset, the better we are. How do you develop a strong mindset? Minimize negative inputs and maximize positive inputs. Don't spend time with people who are negative or sap energy from you. Spend as much time as possible with those that challenge you and make you better and fill you with energy. Strong body, strong mind. When we are physically in a good place, we are better equipped to deal with adversity. Be proud to earn your stripes. You talk about the one thing you can control to make the biggest difference in success, what is it? The honest answer is that there is more than one thing, but it is most important to show up mentally and emotionally prepared to take on the things you need to take on. Being present and not letting your mind be run by fears or insecurities. You also must develop discipline. Discipline is a muscle to be built. Your ability to follow a schedule and be disciplined day in and out helps to achieve mastery. The more discipline we are in area of life, the better that are of life. Principles for making decisions. What should people consider? 2 pieces. The first is why are we making the decision? The second is what are we getting out of it? You have to think through what the best outcome is for all involved. It is also importantly how quickly we can learn to make good decisions. Learning to make quick decisions and deal with potential consequences, is important. There typically never a “perfect decision.” What are some of the principles you've used to build great businesses? Lead by example. Being authentic and true to yourself. People appreciate the truth – whether is good or bad news. Help your people and don't be afraid to stretch them to help develop them. Empower them – even when they don't think they are capable. Where do you see the real estate market going over the next 2 years and what opportunities do you see that people should look for? Markets always go through cycles. The next cycle is a downward trend after a 10-year uptrend with the last 2 years being almost turbocharged. In the next stage, there be more inventory, the velocity of sales will slow and there will be price pressure to go down. This creates opportunities for buyers and sellers. But where we have been in a seller's market, things will shift. Things are relative. If a seller is selling their house for less, then they are buying a new house for less, etc. No one knows how much things will adjust, but we must be prepared for things to change and look for opportunities.   Best Quote: 90% of what it takes to be successful is how we think, how we approach things, and how we react to things...   Chris's Misfit 3: Don't be emotionally attached to the outcome.

Jon Miller is best known for being a former CEO of AOL, Head of Digital Media at News Corp, and Chief Executive of the media powerhouse IAC. With all of that experience in media, Miller might seem like an interesting choice for the StartUp Health board of directors, which he joined recently. After all, on the board he joins the likes of Toby Cosgrove, MD, whose pedigree as the former head of the Cleveland Clinic needs little explanation. Obviously, Miller's experience in business, finance, and media has been vast, but how does that translate to health moonshots, these audacious goals that guide investments at StartUp Health? To find out, we called him up for a chat. Specifically, we wanted to know what tools of media could be used to speed up health innovation and help startups bring their solutions to market more successfully. What we learned was that many of the advancements and opportunities Miller has seen in media over the last couple decades – advancements in consumerism and community – are absolutely core to improving health in scalable digital ways. Listen in to hear Miller explain that vision, and why he's more excited than ever to support a global army of health tech entrepreneurs – this band of like-minded founders we call Health Transformers.

Today's guest is Cyrus Freidheim, the former CEO of both Chiquita and the Chicago Sun-Times and an absolutely legendary management consultant. Consultants often get a bad rap for over-charging and under-delivering. (And let's be honest – sometimes, they deserve it!)  But the RIGHT consultant delivers something that's vital for your business: an outside perspective. It's often the only way you can diagnose and fix your blind spots. And if you don't, those blind spots will come back to haunt you! In this conversation, Cyrus will show you how to use that outside perspective to grow your businesses. As a consultant, he's turned around countless organizations. He's served on dozens of boards, and of course, he's faced his own leadership challenges as CEO of the Chicago Sun-Times. He really has seen it all, and there is so much we can learn from him about the power of an outside perspective. You'll also learn: The first question you need to ask if you want to turn a business around What to do when you face a major disagreement you just can't resolve Two vital ingredients in a successful consultant-leader relationship  Why having (and becoming) a mentor is crucial to your success
