Six Pixels of Separation Podcast - By Mitch Joel
Welcome to episode #882 of Six Pixels of Separation - The ThinkersOne Podcast. Here it is: Six Pixels of Separation - The ThinkersOne Podcast - Episode #882. What makes for great colloboration? Especially in this new world of business. Many people have mixed feelings about workplace collaboration. On the one hand, they know collaboration is essential to achieve complex goals. On the other hand, they know collaboration is a slog. People pull in different directions. There's desperately little communication and even less follow through. One person ends up doing all the work. The result? Friction mounts. Projects fizzle. Great employees walk. This at the core of a new book called, Collabor(h)ate - How To Build Increadible Collaborative Relationships At Work. The author is business advisor, professor and executive, Dr. Deb Mashek.

In this episode, Steve Fretzin and Belle Walker discuss:What process mapping is and how it varies from standard operating procedures. Including client touch points in your process map (not just in the standard operating procedure). The value process mapping has for a law firm. Getting started on process mapping for your legal business. Key Takeaways:When starting a process map, have a start point, an end point, and a name for the process map. If a process has concrete steps, that is just a list. If there are decisions that need to be made, a process map could be engaged to serve your goals. Become familiar with visual language - shapes that have meaning. There are many software products that can assist you with process mapping for your firm for little to no additional cost to your firm. "Process maps have value when you have decision points, options, and loops - conditions that need to be met." — Belle Walker Thank you to our Sponsors!LegalEase Marketing: https://legaleasemarketing.com/Moneypenny: https://www.moneypenny.com/us/Practice Panther: https://www.practicepanther.com/ Episode References: Book: The Hard Thing About Hard Things by Ben Horowitz: https://www.amazon.com/Hard-Thing-About-Things-Building/dp/0062273205 About Belle Walker: Belle Walker takes organizations from Friction to Function, recapturing lost efficiency and engagement by aligning ways of working with strategic goals.

Why do all presentations look and feel the same? Why does it feel like you have to leave your true self at the door and switch into ‘pitch mode'? Why isn't there more storytelling? These are the big questions our guest Ravi Rajani sought to answer, and he packed this episode with so much of what he has learned. In this episode, your host Donald Kelly and Ravi Rajani get pumped about the art of telling exciting stories in a sales environment – and the energy is contagious! Understanding “STORY” in a Sales Context S: Simplify story-selling: A simple, but powerful story can get attention, tug at emotions, and build trust. T: Tactically create your story bank: Include the right kinds of stories in your arsenal. O: Obtain delivery mastery: It's not what you say, it's how you say it. R: Ramp up your MVP story: Practice and fine-tune your story in low-stakes environments. Y: Yield long-term success: Over time, build up more stories to become second nature and conversational. Write Great Sales Stories With The ACORNS Checklist A: Attention-grabbing: Be unpredictable to interrupt your buyer's pattern of thinking. C: Contain a relatable person: A listener should be able to see themselves as your main character. O: Organically unfold: Keep story arcs simple and easy to follow. R: Reveal a villain: Stories with a “villain” have more tension, which gets your listener's attention. N: Nurture trust: The story should be a larger part of building a business relationship over time. S: Should add business value: Stories should lead right into your hook, prospect impact, and CTA (call to action). Using Stories to Incite Emotion Bring someone into the room. Rather than narrating, “This happened, then that happened…” Include dialogue. Rajani uses highly descriptive, sensory-focused language to pull listeners in. “What is a story? Let's take it back to my guy Ralph Emerson. He once said, ‘The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn.' I actually believe that the creation of a thousand relationships is in one story.” – Ravi Rajani Resources DM Ravi Rajani on LinkedIn with the word “Donald” so he knows you heard about him here! https://www.theravirajani.com/yourelevatorstory - FREE script for your Elevator Story Sponsorship Offers This episode is brought to you in part by LinkedIn.

Do you like reading about writers? What does good writing about the act of writing do? And what happens when you write a real writer into a novel? Our guest this month is Tan Twan Eng, who joined us to talk about his third novel The House of Doors. Based around the writer W. Somerset Maugham's stay on the Island of Penang, in what was then Malaya, in 1921, it's also about the stories he learns from the couple he stays with there, and the interplay between their fact and his fiction. We'll be talking about the real and imagined writers that we've loved in fiction, the art of writing about writing, and the authors we'd most love to read a novel about - enjoy!

We've all heard of creating less friction in life to help with good habits. Laying out your workout clothes the night before, meal prepping, and many others. That is getting rid of friction. But the opposite can be true to helping you be more productive. Having an app that will get you off certain apps while you work. Both can be used to get the desired result.Check out the blog post hereBuy Get Out Of My BubblePoetry Book TenTo keep updated on other episodes, books, and all the fun jump on our email Support the show

Take a moment to walk in your prospect's shoes. Imagine you're interested in a product and you reached out for more information, only to wait weeks to hear back. Chances are you went looking elsewhere for a more responsive seller – and if you want to BECOME that second seller, listen in. In this episode, your host Donald Kelly and Aleks Gollu, founder and CEO at 11Sight, discuss the undeniable effectiveness of video calls and rapid response time. What Causes Friction? AI chat bots, long survey-style forms, and delayed response time are all points of friction that drag out and endanger deals. There is no reason why responses can't be instantaneous – if your turnaround isn't immediate, you could very easily lose your prospects. Two Ways to Talk On the Customer's Terms Give your customer the option to schedule the meeting. Give them an option to get on an instant video call. Over 60% preferred an instant call! These options work best for high-velocity sales (conversion in 30-60 days). How Can Reaching Out in Real Time Scale Globally? Record a video that explains that you're not available at that time and offers them an option to schedule a call. Use an outsourced agency that follows a sales script for their first call to move things forward. “A lead is 10 times more valuable in those first five minutes than anytime thereafter. When the phone rings, answer.” – Aleks Gollu Resources https://www.11sight.com/ - Call through the website, and let them know you heard about them on The Sales Evangelist Podcast.

Delivering a digital workplace that works for multiple teams, in multiple locations, all with different end goals is challenging to say the least. But sometimes it comes down to communications and training as much as it does to the tools themselves. In this special episode of Get Reworked, recorded live at the J.W. Marriot in Austin, Texas during the Reworked CONNECT conference, Dante Ragazzo, senior director, digital workplace at Tapestry discusses the work he's doing to simplify and remove friction from the digital workplace at Tapestry. "So I think that if you are not only improving your experience, but showing that you're improving your experience, I think it goes a long way toward employees. I think employees are actually really forgiving, and they understand what's different when you're a consumer. 'Well, you want to get my money. So you should do everything you can to impress me.' "When you're the employee, it's like, 'Well, the more money you spend on other niceties to make me feel good is less money that we have to invest in our business, bonuses and everything else.' So I think employees have a certain understanding like they don't want to just see the coffers wide open and spending frivolously," said Dante. Highlights of the conversation include: What causes some of the digital friction The many definitions of the digital workplace How he approaches shadow IT How to balance diverse team needs with the desire to create a cohesive digital workplace The digital workplace discovery tour he now runs at Tapestry Plus, co-hosts Kate Cox and Siobhan Fagan talk with Dante about the differences between customer experience and employee experience, how we can't live in a magic kingdom, and why sometimes you have to accept that good enough is good enough.

The Brainy Business | Understanding the Psychology of Why People Buy | Behavioral Economics
In this episode of the Brainy Business podcast, host Melina Palmer interviews Carlos Hoyos, a behavioral scientist and content creator from Latin America. They discuss the challenges of creating content in a non-English language and the importance of making behavioral science accessible to a wider audience. Hoyos shares his approach to creating content, including his YouTube channel, Behavioral Pills, and his e-learning platform, which offers one-hour sessions on various behavioral science frameworks. The conversation highlights the need for more diverse voices in the behavioral science community and the opportunities for growth and learning in different regions around the world. Show Notes: [00:42] Welcome Carlos Hoyos, Senior Behavioral Designer at BeWay, and Co-Founder at Kestudio. [02:19] Behavioral science is important everywhere. [03:42] Carlos shares about himself, his background, and the work he does in behavioral science. [05:35] In recent years he has dedicated his whole career to developing his knowledge in terms of behavioral science and design and specifically to find ways to apply it in business. [07:15] Carlos was named Content Person of the Year by Habit Weekly. (Merle van den Akker – last week's guest – and I were both finalists as well – congrats Carlos!) [10:15] There are many companies now that are investing in behavioral science in Latin America. [13:12] He sees himself as a content curator because he shares what other good professionals are doing. [14:46] People love to talk about human behavior. It really connects to people. [16:36] He found that there is so much information out there in English. Instead of being just one more, he decided to focus on Spanish because there is so little in Spanish right now. [19:32] Daring to do the thing no one else has done yet is what helps people to stand out. [22:20] Carlos shares some of the work he is doing with BBVA. They have merged behavioral science into day-to-day decision-making. [24:53] One project they worked on at BBVA was with credit cards. People weren't interested in applying for the credit cards because of a lack of trust – they wanted to change that. [27:34] Experimentation and testing are a must in their projects. [29:20] In 2022, they did more than 130 experiments in different areas of the business and that actually represented an extra income of around 45 million euros in the year. [30:46] There are so many little things where behavioral science can make a very big impact in any type of business all around the world. [32:20] There is plenty of opportunity and room for growth in behavioral science – in the US and around the world. [35:16] The stress on the brain when you are trying to hurry and rush leads to problems that have to be fixed down the line. [37:23] Experimenting and testing every decision you want to make will help you make better decisions now and for the future. [38:42] If you torture the data long enough it will confess to anything. [41:34] Carlo's Behavioral Pills are one-hour e-learning sessions where he explains things concepts he considers basic for a behavioral scientist to know. [43:33] Melina's closing thoughts [45:03] Don't be scared of being first. There are lots of people like you who have done this in their own way or their own language. Thanks for listening.

They discuss the origins of the term "abuse" and how it has been used to describe various forms of trauma. They also touch on how the #MeToo movement has shed light on abuses of power, particularly within religious and church cultures, but also how false accusations could be improperly used to tear down leaders.LinkTree:https://linktr.ee/AllisonParkLeadershipNetworkEmail:Jeffl@allisonparkchurch.comDavel@allisonparkchurch.comInstagram:@Jeffleake11@Dave.Leake

When we start on a self-awareness or awakening journey, we often long for freedom and peace. Freedom to not repeat the same destructive patterns, and the peace we imagine having if we could quiet the loud mind chatter and emotional reactions.However true and heartfelt this longing is, the parts of us that long for peace are often protector parts that have a low capacity to be with high sensations. Their solution is to avoid friction, conflict, and emotions altogether.In this episode, we explore a different perspective. What if friction is a gift to grow from? An expression of life that you can welcome and learn to dance with - without getting overwhelmed.Join me for 6 weeks of embodying the force of life itself, starting May 14:Read more and claim your spot in FEMBODIMENTYou find show notes in this post on my website
What's the relationship between feminist writing and feminist activism? What does it mean to be a feminist killjoy, and what can we learn from her? This month, we're joined by scholar and writer Sara Ahmed to answer these questions and more, as we talk about her brilliant latest book, The Feminist Killjoy Handbook. In it, Sara shows how although the label ‘killjoy' has often been used to dismiss feminism by claiming that it causes unhappiness, in fact, assuming the identity of the feminist killjoy is a path of liberation and change. We'll also be talking more generally about the intersections of feminism and literature, the feminist writers who have inspired us, and thinking through what books can do when it comes to the continued struggle for gender equality. Also, very excitingly, O's memoir This Ragged Grace has been selected as the Bookshop.org book of the month for June!

HVAC School - For Techs, By Techs
In this short podcast, Bryan explains how rules of thumb (ROT) can cause duct issues. He talks about the role of friction rate in duct design as well as its intent and limitations. Friction rate is a value located on duct calculation tools, including Ductulators. We use friction rate to predict the operating static pressure of the system, but it is often misapplied when people design their ductwork around rules of thumb. The friction rate is expressed in inches of water column ("WC), which we also use to measure static pressure. However, the operational static pressure and friction rate are NOT the same things. Ductulators provide information about friction rate based on 100 feet of straight ductwork in the size selected, which we almost never see in the field; fittings and turns add effective length (EL), so the total effective length (TEL) is often more than 100 feet. When duct designers apply rules of thumb, like a 0.1" friction rate, and apply it to the CFM, they don't consider the actual length of the duct. So, the ducts are often undersized and don't properly account for the actual resistance to airflow. If you want to stop using rules of thumb, ACCA Manual D and related software can help you get more precise design parameters and account for other restrictions. The following tech tips contain more information and specific equations to help you find the total effective length: The Friction Rate Chart (and What it Means), What the Heck is a Friction Rate? (Eric Kaiser), How to Determine the Friction Rate for Residential Duct Design (Neil Comparetto).

In this episode I am joined by Dr Julian Schott, Indologist & Tibetologist, trained at institutions such as the renowned Center for the Study of Manuscript Culture at the University of Hamburg. Julian recalls his early interest in philosophy and meditation, and recounts how he emerged from a period of self destruction and found meaning and purpose in academic studies. Julian describes how he fell in love with classical Indic and Tibetan languages, and details the rigorous academic atmosphere at the University of Hamburg, where he immersed in years of reading Sanskrit for many hours a day under masters of philology. Julian makes the case for the vital importance of primary language competency for scholars and religious practitioners alike, and offers his opinion on those who practice or teach religious traditions without an ability to read its writings in the original languages. Julian critiques the idea of Buddhist transmission as a useful lie without historical support which is employed to encourage behaviour in line with the religion's soteriological aims, and reflects on his own evolving journey as both a scholar and religious practitioner. … Video version: https://www.guruviking.com/podcast/ep197-scholar-practitioner-dr-julian-schott Also available on Youtube, iTunes, & Spotify – search ‘Guru Viking Podcast'. … Topics Include: 00:00 - Intro 01:13 - Julian's upbringing 02:27 - Origins of Julian's interest in Indology and Tibetology 03:11 - Investigating meditation traditions 04:13 - Spiritual not religious 05:08 - Early meditation experiences 06:44 - Julian's favourite meditation techniques 07:18 - Self destructive phase and turning life around 10:37 - The downward spiral 11:28 - Rock bottom 12:44 - The day is full of potential 13:14 - Immersion in the study of history, classical Western philosophy, law, and 14:58 - Falling in love with Indian and Tibetan language 17:04 - Redirecting from law to philology 17:47 - Discovering what real mastery takes 19:21 - Rigorous academic atmosphere at University of Hamburg 20:16 - Reading Sanskrit for 5-6 hours a day 23:46 - Self-teaching Classical Tibetan via Sanskrit 24:44 - How to bridge the intermediate gap in language learning 27:43 - The vital role of primary language knowledge in understanding a religion and culture 31:29 - The incredible level of previous generations of philologists and Indologists 32:29 - The diminishing role of primary language learning in the academy 34:51 - The limitations of not knowing the primary languages 37:17 - To meditators and religious teachers who don't know the languages 42:05 - Julian's own religious journey 43:39 - Scepticism vs naivety 44:37 - Liberated by the proliferating unknowns in practice and scholarship 46:54 - Friction with religious institutions 48:23 - Make your own Dharma 50:31 - Mistaken ideas about lineage and transmission in Buddhism 54:05 - The useful lie of Buddhist lineage 55:51 - Critically investigating Buddhist claims 57:42 - Challenging the esoteric claims of Tantric Buddhist transmission 01:00:56 - Surpassing the master and the Jedi dimension 01:05:53 - Julian probes Steve's opinion on doctrinal contradictions 01:07:23 - Lack of self confidence and making your own Dharma 01:10:42 - Contradictions of modern Buddhist practitioners 01:12:34 - Was Buddha a Buddhist? … To find our more about Dr Julian Schott, visit: - https://www.aai.uni-hamburg.de/indtib/personen/schott.html For more interviews, videos, and more visit: - https://www.guruviking.com Music ‘Deva Dasi' by Steve James
Secrets of Data Analytics Leaders
An operational data hub (ODH) is a pattern in data architecture that provides a central location and a standard protocol for operational systems to communicate about and share data among themselves. Operational systems post messages about data events (add, change, delete) and subscribe to messages of interest posted by other applications. The hub works to share data among applications without the clutter and chaos of point-to-point data feeds.

The Brainy Business | Understanding the Psychology of Why People Buy | Behavioral Economics
Today I welcome Roger Dooley to The Brainy Business podcast for a refresh of our conversation about his book Friction. Featuring this discussion was inspired by Richard Shotton's new book The Illusion of Choice, which has one chapter about “making it easy” and then another on “making it difficult” (and you'll hear all about it on Friday). This perfectly aligns with Roger's book, Friction, which is all about understanding the psychology of friction and how it can be used to optimize customer experiences. That made it the perfect refresh candidate for this week! While reducing friction is often best and what most businesses need, sometimes there is also value in adding friction in the right places. For example, in What Your Employees Need and Can't Tell You, I suggest introducing a 30 minute waiting period before sending emails can help to avoid mistakes. As you listen today and think about Friction, consider your own experiences — where can they be easier? Where should they be more difficult? I know that seems a bit counterintuitive now, but some thoughtful friction is really valuable in the right places. Listen in to learn how you can use friction in your own business. Show Notes: [00:39] Today's episode is all about friction, specifically, a refresh of the conversation I had with Roger Dooley on his book Friction way back in November 2019. [01:44] As you listen today and think about friction, consider your own experiences — where can they be easier? Where should they be more difficult? [04:04] The cover of Roger's book, Friction, intentionally had a coarse / gritty texture. It was meant to convey a sense of friction. (Priming!) [05:35] Roger shares about himself, his background, and the work he does. [07:40] The interaction of neuroscience, behavioral science, and business has always been fascinating to him. His blogging, podcast, and books have given him a chance to explore that and simplify it for people in business. [09:22] There has been an increase in business interest in behavioral science. [11:46] Change is hard, especially when humans are involved. [12:57] 95% of the time businesses have too much friction in their processes. [13:49] There are times when adding friction helps. In general, it is best to eliminate it. Amazon is a prime example of that. [16:27] Friction is an unnecessary effort to complete a task. [18:29] Amazon makes it so that 99% of the time or more you are simply using the one-click button to ship a product to your home address or office address. That makes it a low-risk transaction. [21:46] People don't look at the cost of the processes they create. When looking at the total time, cost, and effort compared to the amount you would lose, there's no comparison. [23:29] Where there is high trust there is low friction. [25:08] Often we create processes that are designed to make things easier but they don't really work that way. [27:51] How many people are going to be affected by this and how can we make things easier? [30:08] In general, if you are trying to maximize leads or sales, making the process as simple as possible is the way to go. [33:08] By giving them that “out” you relieve the pressure and they are more comfortable complying with the request. [35:54] Buffer took all the friction out of scheduling social media. They made it simple to get started. [38:34] Rather than seemingly correct the person and imply that they didn't work at it hard enough they avoid the word “actually”. [40:46] Loyal customers are better and more valuable than new customers. Low-effort experiences drive loyalty. [42:38] They are comparing you against their best, lowest effort customer experiences. [43:57] You are endangering the loyalty of all those customers you can not handle in that instantaneous and efficient manner. [46:54] Sometimes eliminating useless parts of the process is the best way. [48:34] As you look to decrease friction you will start to notice it all around you. [50:27] Melina's closing thoughts [52:41] Remember, you are a human doing business with humans inside your company and with your customers — trust and humanness and a reduction in friction can go a long way in building an amazing business.

Dancing can be about escape, about pleasure, but it can also be about protest. It can be a powerful means of expression, but how does writing capture all that movement and rhythm? And what does good writing about dancing do? With us this month is Jaqueline Crooks to talk about her dynamic first novel, Fire Rush, an intoxicating story about the dub reggae scene in 70s and 80s London. Told from the perspective of a young Black woman named Yamaye, it's also about love, loss, freedom and finding family. In honour of Crooks' evocative depiction of the dub scene - and especially the dancing that goes on in it - we're dedicating this show to dance in all its forms. We'll be talking about dance subcultures, our favourite dance scenes in literature - from balls to clubs - and lots more, plus all the usual recommendations. Enjoy!

Jeffrey Eisenberg and Dewey Jenkins don't know each other but each of them taught me the importance of removing the friction.Dewey sings it to every person in his company, “Make it easy for customers to do business with us.” And they do. Inventing new ways to “make it easier” is the job of every person in every department.Jeffrey Eisenberg calls this “removing the friction in the buying process”.Tesla is a good example.I am convinced that a number of other companies are building electric vehicles that are as good – or better – than Tesla, but Tesla remains the big name with the big stock price. At the time of this writing, Tesla is selling for $181 a share while Volkswagen is at $18, Subaru is at $8, Ford is at $13, Audi is at $19, Mercedes is at $20, BMW is at $35, and Rivian is at $15.Tesla has removed the friction from the buying process.Buying a car from Tesla is as easy as buying a book from Amazon. And I don't mean that figuratively. I mean that literally. People who order a car from Tesla look up from their computer screen with a puzzled look on their face and ask, “Did I just buy a new car?” And then they look back at their computer screen and nod their head up-and-down slowly as they say, “Yes, I just bought a new car.”Go ahead and try it. It will only cost you $500.Princess Pennie ordered a Tesla a couple of months ago and was startled by how easy it was. Two weeks later, she decided she wanted to add the optional third row of seating. I watched her add that third row in less than 30 seconds with just two clicks. Tesla immediately displayed her new delivery date, and she closed her laptop. Done.Meanwhile, our younger son spent an entire day at the Volkswagen dealer trying to order an electric SUV. He persevered for 8 grueling hours, but he got it done and the car soon arrived. He loves that vehicle, and rightfully so, but he says he would rather endure a tax audit, a root canal, and a prostate exam than go through the process of buying a Volkswagen again.Volkswagen has not yet figured out how to remove the friction.1-800-GOT-JUNK is a company entirely committed to removing the friction. Led by its founder, Brian Scudamore, “Making it easier for the customer” is an ongoing source of enthusiastic discussion at every level in that company.Meanwhile, Google is introducing all kinds of new friction. Google “Best Electric Vehicles” and you will see pages of ads from manufacturers who want to sell you a car. Enter a different, more specific phrase and you'll get that same list. In fact, any query that includes the word “electric” followed by any synonym for “car” will get you that list of ads.Google got big by putting the customer ahead of the advertiser. They're clearly not doing that anymore, so I've decided to give Bing a chance. I suspect there might be millions of other people slowly coming to that same conclusion right now.But even though I am profoundly frustrated with Google, I remain encouraged that Dewey and Jeffrey and Brian Scudamore and the customer service team at Tesla remain committed to removing the friction at every point of contact, making it ever-increasingly easy for customers to do business with them.To remove the friction is to remove the customer's frustration.I'm just an ad writer, so I'm not particularly good at refining the internal processes of running a business, but I highly admire those people who know how to do it.How about you? Can you think of 10 tiny-little-things that would each make it a-little-bit-easier for customers to do business with you? Think of those 10 things as Exponential Little Bits; they don't just add up, they multiply and go exponential.And when you have implemented those 10 things, think of 10 more, and then implement those.Rinse and repeat.Keep it up and you'll become the Tesla of your category.Roy H....
