James welcomes renowned author Robert Greene back on the show to discuss the intricacies of power, strategy, and human nature, as explored in Greene's bestselling book, "The 48 Laws of Power." The episode kicks off with James sharing his journey to reclaim his old chess ranking, a challenge that's not only about the game but also about rediscovering and harnessing personal strengths and strategies.

As they explore the content, Robert explains his unique approach to writing, focusing on the multitude of historical examples and stories that form the backbone of each chapter. He shares his reasoning for not including personal anecdotes in his books, preferring to draw from rich historical contexts.The discussion deepens as they delve into some of the most compelling examples from "The 48 Laws of Power." They explore how figures like Napoleon's chief diplomat, Charles Maurice de Talleyrand, navigated the treacherous waters of successive revolutions with astute power plays.

The 10,000 hour rule (as written by Malcolm Gladwell) is not quite enough to become an expert. There are “4 things it takes to be an expert”, according to a YouTube personality. 1. REPEATED ATTEMPTS WITH FEEDBACK. EXAMPLE: A tennis player must have immediate feedback to become great or good. NOTE: Be weary of experts who don't have repeated theory through feedback. 2. VALID ENVIRONMENT 3. REPEATED EXPERIENCES 4. TIMELY FEEDBACK After doing all of these things, do we then become an EXPERT? Unfortunately NO! We have a tendency to like being comfortable. Don't get comfortable - learn to be uncomfortable. Deliberate practice is important and attempting things you can't do quite yet. Trumpet (Instrument): I became proficient on a pro level over a period of 22 years, because of teachers, college professors from 2 Universities, and countless hours / sleepless nights of private practice, performing with multiple bands, solo performances, failures, wins, rejected auditions, etc. Still on some levels I am an expert and other levels not at all… Then my world changed to student ministry. My friend, Andy McDaniel, showed up in my 6th year of student ministry. He was a coach's coach… A leader's leader. He helped me see that I was on the right track. Finally, I had someone local that knew more than me. He was the true expert. Who is your coach or mentor? Who is far ahead of you, so that you can be led with confidence? _______________________________ Looking for a new student ministry resource?

They have 2 adult children and are working on plans to visit their sixth continent."I was hearing this message, 'You need to be more strategic.' I realized my definition of strategy in my head was not actually strategy and I needed to reframe strategy as being willing to completely blow everything up because there's a bigger, better thing you need to do and I think that if you are very organized and very goal oriented, you don't want to blow up your plan. You want to execute your plan. You're a great executor and that will get you to a certain level. So I think that's inflection point number one, at least it was for me and I think that's true for a lot of people.

Great leaders aren't born, they're made. While it's tempting to look at stories of great leaders and just assume they're received some divine or genetic gift that turned them into exemplars, the truth is much more nuanced. Leadership is a skill that can be honed and improved with practice and the right guidance. This episode will explore three key habits that can significantly enhance your leadership skills: creating clarity, establishing safety, and speaking purpose. These habits are not just theoretical concepts but are based on well-researched findings on what constitutes an outstanding team culture. Creating clarity involves setting clear goals, milestones, and expectations for the team. This is crucial in a world where teams often operate in an unclear and volatile environment. Establishing safety, on the other hand, means creating a climate where team members feel comfortable taking interpersonal risks, such as disagreeing or sharing ideas. Finally, speaking purpose involves regularly communicating the importance of the team's work and how it benefits others. This is not just about performance objectives or bonuses but about connecting the team's work to a greater good. 0:00 Introduction 1:07 Create Clarity 3:05 Establish Safety 4:58 Speak Purpose 6:19 Conclusion None of these skills come from genetics, they're learned. Leaders can significantly improve their leadership skills by focusing on creating clarity, establishing safety, and speaking purpose. These habits are not just theoretical concepts but are based on well-researched findings on what constitutes an outstanding team culture. By focusing on these three areas, leaders can create an environment where everyone can do their best work ever. //DO YOUR BEST WORK EVER If you liked this video and you want to help your team do their best work ever, check out the free resources we've compiled at https://davidburkus.com/resources //ABOUT DAVID One of the world's leading business thinkers, David Burkus' forward-thinking ideas and bestselling books are helping leaders and teams do their best work ever.

Denke an die Führungskräfte in Deinem Umfeld. Was fühlen ihre Teams mehr – die Macht oder die Fürsorge der Führungskraft? Und welche Auswirkungen hat das auf das Selbstvertrauen, die Produktivität, das Vertrauen und den Spaß an der Arbeit? Die heutige Folge ist inspiriert von einem realen Kundenfall, an dem Stefans Team gerade arbeitet. Eines der Führungsteams, wird von einer starken, erfolgreichen Führungskraft mit außergewöhnlichen analytischen Fähigkeiten, aber weniger starkem Einfühlungsvermögen geleitet. Der Teamleiter würde gerne mehr Eigenverantwortung, Führungs- und Lösungsorientierung und Wertschätzung für seine Fürsorge für das Team von seinen direkten Mitarbeitern sehen. Andererseits trauen sich einige seiner direkten Mitarbeiter manchmal nicht, ihre Meinung zu sagen, weil sie sich von der Macht des Teamleiters etwas eingeschüchtert fühlen. Sie würden gerne mehr Fürsorge als Macht spüren. Deshalb spricht Stefan heute darüber, wie Du als LEITWOLF ® deinem Team das Gefühl geben kannst, was ihm hilft, erfolgreicher zu sein. Das kann manchmal Deine Macht sein, viel häufiger aber Deine Fürsorge. Aber wie kannst Du das umsetzen? Heute bekommst Du drei Tipps zur Führungsbalance zwischen Macht und Fürsorge. ––– Gefällt Dir dieser LEITWOLF® Leadership Podcast?

What you'll learn from this episode: § Three common reasons why people struggle to stay productive. § Why our reliance on digital tools to improve communication can be antithetical. § How leaders and managers can respond to cultures that are enabling burnout. § Why flexible working is a challenging balancing act. § How to get a better understanding of daily goals and priorities.
