In episode 69 of the Total Fit Boss Chick Podcast, Merit Kahn, an emotional Intelligence sales expert, and CEO of SELLect Sales Development, tells us how to increase our emotional intelligence, how to stop selling, and Start getting SELLected. The key to doing more deals and expanding influence without being too aggressive and how the combination of mindset, mechanics, and motion can change your profit game!Merit says,"Sometimes we think a good leader is really knowledgeable about the industry and their products and services and all of that. And that's part of it for sure. But. What really has people rise to the top is how well they treat other people. That's really the essence of emotional intelligence, how well we understand our own emotions and our impact on other people when we don't understand that. To be more influential with other people, it's so important that we understand what has influence over us."You don't want to have highs and lows. What you're really striving for is balance, which can be improved with the help of emotional intelligence training programs like MBT (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction). Self-care techniques such as meditation involve practicing one's own control over how they feel by focusing on their thoughts in order to gain perspective before acting upon them. It might sound too simple at first glance, but when we look closely, enough all aspects/behaviors seem different because each situation calls out certain responses from us - these things may change depending on what happens during our lives.How Do We Develop and Build Emotional Intelligence?If you're looking for the best way to build your emotional intelligence skills, I have just what will work. The first step should always involve understanding yourself and getting an accurate assessment of how wired up or down we are with our emotions on any given day so that they can be used in tandem-- strengths against weaknesses! This really helps us focus more efficiently, too, because by taking stock before starting anything new, it becomes easier instead of trying again only when things go wrong.It may sound simple enough at this point: figure out where WE'RE strong.Right now, it's important to understand your strengths and weaknesses, so you can be the best person possible. For example: if I know that my greatest strength is elegantly communicating complex ideas, but one of my worst traits is being disorganized, then using these two skills together could really help me!I think emotional intelligence will also give us greater insight into who we are at our core - what makes us tick? How do other people see this side or trait about themselves, too-even though they might not realize why certain actions seem innate for them just yet... And with knowledge comes power-- understanding how YOU work can lead others down paths towards self-discovery as well because when someone finds out.What Can Emotional Intelligence Do For Me at Work or in My Business?Daniel Goleman, an American psychologist says, there are five components of emotional intelligence. Here's how to apply the components at work: Self-awareness is the ability to recognize your emotions and what triggers them. Knowing how others might feel about a situation helps bring empathy into work-life for better relationships with coworkers or clients alike! Being aware of these feelings also lets us more easily control our own emotional responses so that they don't affect those around us negatively; this then creates an overall more positive effect on everyone's lives (and job!).Self-regulation is the ability to control and adjust your emotions to create a more positive situation. The best way to manage your emotions is by being in control of them. You are not hiding yourself or what you feel, but regulating when and how often they should be expressed so that the appropriate time for expressing ourselves will never come up without warning! People with this skill tend to have good self-control over themselves and know how to deal with conflict well by calming others down if need be.A self-motivated leader is internally motivated and more focused to achieve goals, and their team also gets the same motivation. When a leader has this trait, it boosts employee morale, making them want to work hard for success as well! Whether you're an entrepreneur looking for success on your terms or working within a corporate culture and trying not to wake the sleeping giant that is beneath us all: we require some form of motivation from time to time.Empathic leaders can connect with their team, understand what's happening in the organization and provide guidance. They also care about others on a personal level which generates respect from those under them for being honest about how they feel without fear or favoritism.Empathy means understanding your employees' perspectives so that you can help identify areas where improvements could be made while still holding true values of yours as well! Social skills are a must for good leaders because they need to be able to build and manage relationships. They interact with people in a helpful way, building networks of support for themselves while working on behalf of others at all times. These individuals are skilled communicators who help translate ideas into action using their incredible skill set, which includes great social skills!How Do We Get SELLected?In business, we want our clients to be happy with their transactions. Well, not just happy, we want them to beg for what we have to offer. Here are a few tips you'll learn from this show. Be influential Be interactive Be "Open for Business"Draw out any potential obstacles before leaving the conversation. Merit says,  "So when you talk about this with your team and you're getting them all excited, what do you think? They're going to say, give me one, objection. There's gotta be somebody on your team. What's that person going to say?"Listen to episode 69 of the Total Fit Boss Chick Podcast and Learn Emotional intelligence: the little-known secret to conquering success to find out more like how to use a combination of mindset, mechanics, and motion can change your profit game, how humor can improve your recovery!Emotional intelligence and Being SELLected in Business:In today's society, it is important to develop your emotional intelligence.

Calls are growing for the dismantling of the meritocracy—educational systems and economic structures that claim to elevate individuals based on merit, but instead favor those with wealth or racial privilege. As elites turn against the very merit-based systems that elevated them, governments, corporations, schools, and other entities are extending old policies—like affirmative action—and embracing new initiatives for equity and inclusion. But as we rid our society of standardized tests, “gifted” schools and programs, and traditional corporate hierarchies, finding new methods of evaluation and promotion is proving difficult. What value, if any, do the ideas of merit and merit-based decision-making retain in this moment of reassessment? What were the origins and intentions of those who created merit-based systems for scholarships and federal employment, and how have those systems fallen short? Do today's profound social inequalities reflect a fundamental failure of the idea of meritocracy, or a corruption of an ideal that needs mending? “The Aristocracy of Talent” author and The Economist political editor Adrian Wooldridge, Columbia University sociologist Jennifer Lee, and Malissia R. Clinton, vice president, general counsel and secretary at The Aerospace Corporation, visited Zócalo to explore whether there is any merit left in meritocracy.

Contradictory —that is pure meditation:it is in your mind.* * *In the last segment we ended with Keizan's “do not become involved in too many activities or too many studies,” weaving a complex web of contradictions in Zen practice, in particular those that inevitably arise when we attempt to share the Dharma with others. As Master Dogen says, “Thus the realm of self-awakening and awakening others invariably holds the mark of realization….” Without genuine insight, we are forever lost in the monkey mind's niggling contradictions. Now the master veers back to zazen itself, with some down-to-earth suggestions, presumably based on his personal experience:By no means sit in meditation in extreme brightness or dark, in extreme cold or heat, or the like, to say nothing of the places frequented by entertainers or gamblers. Within a monastery, at the home of good friends, deep in some forest or glen can serve you for this. By blue waters, in green hills are places to stroll quietly; near valleys, under trees are places for clearing the mind. Beholding impermanence, do not ignore it, for this encourages the mind to search the Way.Again, the strange reference to meditating in public places of disrepute. We are left to wonder if there were schools extant that made public displays of their devotion in inappropriate settings. Or perhaps Keizan is putting his students on notice that if they are spotted in such places, it will not be for the purposes of Zen. Note that he does suggest the remote realms of nature, for sitting or walking, and “clearing the mind.” This seems an obvious meme of all cultures, but nowadays sitting outdoors is criticized by some as not the real zazen. Sitting inside the walls of a building is definitely less distracting, but in either case, Keizan's emphasis on impermanence is germane. It applies to the self in any circumstance.Next, Keizan goes into the equipment and environment of meditation and ceremonial halls, similar to the instructions in Fukanzazengi. It raises the question as to whether or not this seminal paper on zazen was available or not to the monastics just a few generations after Dogen. We get the impression that Keizan's intent here is to cover any gaps in the promulgation of “pure meditation” that may have been perceived at the time, or perhaps only to flesh it out with more homely language to make it more accessible or, as we say today, more relatable to his followers. A lot can change in a couple of generations.He does offer some mental attitudinal exercises, such as “Constantly dwelling with great benevolence and compassion, transfer the immeasurable spiritual merits of your seated meditation to all sentient beings.” This may be the root source of our Transfer of Merit, or Eko in Japanese, performed at the end of Zen ceremonies. And “Do not give rise to arrogance, conceit, or pride in your knowledge of the Dharma, for such attitudes lie outside the Way and are the methods of ordinary, everyday people.” Again, by criticizing “ordinary, everyday people,” Keizan's message can be criticized as prompting the very us-and-them mentality that might lead to “arrogance, conceit, or pride.” Again, the inescapable koan.Then, before going into some recommended hygienic practices around zazen, “…rinse your eyes and wash your feet before sitting,” he nails it:Just sit, without “doing” anything: this is the essential technique for practicing pure meditation.Finally, we cut to the chase. Non-doing follows on the heels of non-thinking, Dogen's coinage. If we can regress to the point of non-thinking in zazen, neither thinking nor not-thinking, the next way station would be non-doing. This is akin to Dogen's “being actualized within non-thinking, being manifested within non-interacting” from his brief poem, Zazenshin. If the effect of zazen is actualized in the normal state of awareness that he termed non-thinking, then it is manifested fully within non-interacting, which would be equivalent to non-doing, on the level of intention. Needless to say, actualization is something we can recognize and foster, through embracing non-thinking as our new normal; but manifestation is something totally outside the realm of doing. It is nothing-doing. It can happen, but we cannot make it. Referring to this as a “technique,” a translator's choice, re-engages the duality dilemma. A technique is something we can apply intentionally. Non-thinking and non-doing are the absence of intent. In terms of intentional approaches to doing, Keizan provides a couple of memorable tropes:Ten times having the urge to speak, let nine go past; let the moss grow around your mouth. Be like a fan in winter, or be like a wind chime hanging in space, which does not query which way the wind blows. Such are weathervanes for one who would tread the Way.Shades of Master Dylan again. You don't need a weathervane to know which way the Zen wind blows. Paraphrasing, for those of you old enough to remember. Conjuring images instead of laying out the logic of the practice, Master Keizan appeals to our intuition, our sense of channeling the experience of the insentient, the “sermon of no words.”Pure meditation does not concern itself with teachings, practices, or realization and it encompasses the virtues of all three… Even though teaching is done with regard to pure meditation, it is not customary teaching; it is called “the way of direct pointing to Buddha Nature and single Transmission from mind to mind,” in which the Master gives his whole being to voicing the Truth; his words, from the first, do not have chapter and verse. It is the place where notions and ideas have come to an end, and the limits of reasoning are surpassed — one word encompasses the universe, even without the slightest shred of praise.Here we have the bifurcation of Zen practice and zazen. In meditation, there is no further need for all the trappings of Zen practice, as Master Dogen reminds us in Jijuyu Zammai (Self-fulfilling Samadhi). The samadhi that we experience in zazen fulfils itself — it does not need anything to support it. Zen practice, however, involves the interaction with others, in the zendo, the monastery or practice center, and in the community at large. Here is where the necessity arises for agreed-upon standards of practice, in order that the community maintains harmony and can practice zazen in a conducive social environment. Sitting in your cave alone, not so much.Keizan justifies his teaching as a full-throated effort to convey the essence of the teaching in the context of the method of meditation, understanding from the beginning that it has nothing to do with “notions and ideas” of a rational nature. Indeed, it surpasses language, as we learned from Hsinhsinming. One word, one gesture, expresses the whole of the truth, for those who have the eyes to hear and the ears to see. The underlined and, here and above, highlights the conjunction of both sides of the story. There is no actual separation of zazen and Zen practice, but all practices are not equal.Keizan further explores and explains this: “On the one hand, A Master may speak of practice, but it is a natural, spontaneous practice free from defiling passions. It is called “having nothing that the body needs to do; having nothing the mouth needs to chant, even to itself; having nothing that the mind needs to seek after” — these are the Three Actions, which with practice become immaculate naturally. There is no special magic in doing specific things, even zazen; chanting incantations; or thinking better thoughts (another bow to Master Dylan). He extends further: “…the six sense faculties are naturally immaculate, without stain or flaw.” But he dismisses the traditional ways of interpreting the Four Noble Truths, the Twelvefold Chain, Six Paramitas and Ten Thousand Good Deeds of Bodhisattvas; they are trumped by “'the seeing of the Eternal before one's very eyes', which is therefore called ‘being a Buddha.' Just reside at ease in the samadhi which the Buddhas themselves accepted and used.”Then, “On the other hand, a Master may speak of personal confirmation, yet there is no confirming and there is confirmation.” After this apparent contradiction, he again effusively praises this as the “lord of samadhis” and curiously mentions “It surpasses any social rules of ‘being worldly' or ‘being saintly”; It lays bare the emotional thinking behind ‘delusion versus enlightenment.' How could this not be confirmation of Supreme Enlightenment?”On that last, seeing is believing. We cannot take this at his word, even though we do not disbelieve. If and when we accede to this view ourselves, we may transcend the “worldly” and “saintly,” but up until then we live in separate worlds. Confirmation, if it is real, is not to be found in words, however eloquent. He also amplifies upon Dogen's point that in zazen, all Precepts are already fulfilled:Also, pure meditation does not stand against the Precepts, mindfulness, or wise discernment. Rather it combines with these three aspects of spiritual training…. When seated in pure meditation, we observe that there is no duality whatsoever; we cast aside the multitude of things and bring all conditions to rest. Neither the Teachings of the Buddhas nor the teachings of the world dominate us; emotional attachments to the Way and worldly feelings are both left behind. There is no “right and wrong,” no “good and evil,” for what is there to resist or cease from? This is what the Precepts that go beyond mental characterization are.Now he seems to be cribbing directly from Fukanzazengi. Dogen advises to “set aside all everyday concerns, think neither good nor evil, right or wrong.” But Keizan is making a stronger statement, declaring that, actually, there is no right, wrong, good, or evil. But we should remember this is not a social motto, but only to be applied to us personally, reflecting our reality in the Zen mirror. This is not a rationale for tolerating injustice, or allowing oneself or others to become a doormat. It is necessary to proceed to this zero point, what I refer to as the “singularity of consciousness,” in order that we can shed our sentimental interpretation of societal and Buddhist teachings, along with all other confusion. This is passing the “event horizon” on the way to awakening. At the heart of the “Black Hole” of reality, none of these conditions obtain. When we return, however, nothing has really changed.In the next segment, the last on Keizan Zenji, we will see what he as to say about mindfulness and wise discernment, the remaining two “aspects of spiritual training” he mentions. Until then, please take up his suggestions regarding pure meditation — which phrase, by the way, is not capitalized, indicating an attitude of humility towards something quite ordinary — in other words, the humble practice of zazen.* * *Elliston Roshi is guiding teacher of the Atlanta Soto Zen Center and abbot of the Silent Thunder Order.

In this episode, Patrice Dabrowski takes us on a historical journey through the highly understudied Carpathian Mountains of Poland, Slovakia, and Ukraine. Her brand new book details the many forces at play in the mountainous region over the years from 1860 to 1980 and shows how this area gradually went from terra incongita to tourist attraction. We hope you enjoy! ABOUT THE BOOK https://cornellpress-us.imgix.net/covers/9781501759673.jpg?auto=format&w=298&q=20&dpr=2 In The Carpathians, Patrice M. Dabrowski narrates how three highland ranges of the mountain system found in present-day Poland, Slovakia, and Ukraine were discovered for a broader regional public. This is a story of how the Tatras, Eastern Carpathians, and Bieszczady Mountains went from being terra incognita to becoming the popular tourist destinations they are today. It is a story of the encounter of Polish and Ukrainian lowlanders with the wild, sublime highlands and with the indigenous highlanders--Górale, Hutsuls, Boikos, and Lemkos--and how these peoples were incorporated into a national narrative as the territories were transformed into a native/national landscape. The set of microhistories in this book occur from about 1860 to 1980, a time in which nations and states concerned themselves with the "frontier at the edge." Discoverers not only became enthralled with what were perceived as their own highlands but also availed themselves of the mountains as places to work out answers to the burning questions of the day. Each discovery led to a surge in mountain tourism and interest in the mountains and their indigenous highlanders. Although these mountains, essentially a continuation of the Alps, are Central and Eastern Europe's most prominent physical feature, politically they are peripheral. The Carpathians is the first book to deal with the northern slopes in such a way, showing how these discoveries had a direct impact on the various nation-building, state-building, and modernization projects. Dabrowski's history incorporates a unique blend of environmental history, borderlands studies, and the history of tourism and leisure. (Publisher) ABOUT THE GUEST https://www.umass.edu/archivenewsoffice/sites/default/files/styles/article_small/public/Patrice%20Dabrowski%20copy.jpg Patrice M. Dabrowski has taught and worked at Harvard, Brown, the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and the University of Vienna. She is currently an associate of the Harvard Ukrainian Research Institute, a member of the Board of Directors of the Polish Institute of Arts and Sciences of America (PIASA), and editor of H-Poland. Dabrowski is the author of three books: Poland: The First Thousand Years (2014), Commemorations and the Shaping of Modern Poland (2004), and The Carpathians: Discovering the Highlands of Poland and Ukraine (2021).

The Republican Party cannot win on their own Merit they have to cheat to win!  If someone is playing me in a game of chess and cheating, that means they lost the game no gray. Donald J Trump was impeached twice and should have been removed twice.  Donald Trump tried to overthrow the government and failed with his coup.  Why he's still running around and not in prison is beyond me.  Even today Republicans are still saying Trump won even though he lost 60 court cases. Donald Trump will be classified as a terrorist in the court of law and then his title will be stripped from him just like in the Olympics when 133 Olympians lost their gold and silver medals because they cheated.  You can say you won, but you cheated so therefore you lost!

Carolyn Bailey Lewis is a woman who has been determined to always push herself and to set new standards throughout her career. She has been a pioneer in her field, but it hasn't been easy. While forging her path, as a black woman, Carolyn has had to fight battles against racism, bigotry, and prejudice as well as sexism. Coming from the small town of Bluefield, West Virginia where she attended segregated schools and lived in a segregated neighborhood, Carolyn became the only black woman in her class of journalism students at West Virginia University. Being able to adapt to a “white world” and function as the only person of color took great strength, will, and dexterity. In 1971, Carolyn became the first black woman to graduate from the Perley I Reed School of Journalism, now the Reed College of Media at West Virginia University. She continued her trailblazing in 1993 when she became the first African American woman named to manage a full-service public television station in the continental United States at WNPB-TV in Morgantown. In 1997, she became the Director and General Manager of WOUB Public Media at Ohio University, where she stayed until her retirement. That same year she also became an ordained minister. During her 14 years at WOUB, Carolyn rose nationally in the ranks of public broadcasting. She was a member of the Board of Trustees of the Association of Public Television Stations (APTS), a member of the Board of Directors of the National Education Telecommunications Association (NETA) and Chair of the PBS Advertising and Promotion Advisory Committee. But she wasn't finished. Against all odds and while confined to a wheelchair, she received her Doctor of Philosophy degree in Communications Studies – 36 years after her undergraduate degree from WVU. Most recently, she received the 2020 Medal of Merit for Professional Achievement from Ohio University. Currently, in her retirement Carolyn has authored a book, is the co-founder and chairman of the Dr. Carolyn Foster Bailey Lewis Family Foundation and is the co-founder and CEO of LifeDay Greeting Cards, Inc.

During the pandemic, standardized tests were suspended in an entire range of educational institutions. Will these changes be temporary or permanent? More than 600 of these institutions switched from a mandatory to optional test for the 2020-21 application season, and many just flat out refused to accept a test at all in their application process. According to the editor in chief of the Princeton Review, “That is a tectonic change for many schools.” According to Smithsonian Magazine, “The pandemic sped up changes that were already afoot; even before Covid, more than 1,000 colleges had made the tests optional. Many had been turned off by the way the tests perpetuated socioeconomic disparities, limiting their ability to recruit a diverse freshman class.” Concerns about disparities in outcomes, at the core of this massive shift, have been behind Mayor Bill DeBlasio's agenda in New York City, including his past efforts to eliminate the entrance exam for the City's seven specialized high schools. While that effort has experienced a setback in the State Legislature, the fight will likely carry on by other political leaders. And more recently, the Mayor announced a plan to make sweeping changes to the gifted program in the City's elementary schools. There are similar efforts in other cities across the country. Joining today's conversation is Adrian Wooldridge, a longtime journalist at The Economist, where he is political editor and writes a column on British life and politics, and before that he penned the Schumpeter column on business, finance and management. He was previously the Washington bureau chief for The Economist, where he also wrote the Lexington column. Prior to his role in Washington, he was The Economist‘s West Coast correspondent, management correspondent and Britain correspondent. Adrian has written a number of books. His most recent books include “Capitalism in America: A History”, which he co-authored with Alan Greenspan, “The Wake-Up Call: Why the Pandemic Has Exposed the Weakness of the West, and How to Fix It”, which he co-wrote with John Micklethwait of Bloomberg News, and just out this year: “The Aristocracy of Talent: How Meritocracy Made the Modern World”.

And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Gabriel Mizrahi (@GabeMizrahi) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: jordanharbinger.com/574 On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: Rekindling with an old flame whose feelings are said to be mutual should fill you with joy, but her current marriage to another man and motherhood to his children is a bit of a downer. Can there be merit in pursuing something...extramarital? You share custody of two children with a narcissistic ex -- one is hers by a father who was out of the picture by the time you came along, and the other was adopted. The problem: she shamelessly plays favorites and clearly favors her biological kid. Are you hurting your adopted child by allowing her to go to your toxic ex's every other week? You're blind and working toward certification in a well-paying field, but it involves visual math concepts and a lot of the instructional material is inaccessible. On the other hand, your interest in languages makes a career as an interpreter appealing -- and it's much easier to accomplish. Should you finish the certification you've spent so much time and money pursuing, or just cut your losses and take the lower-paying but potentially more satisfying path? You have well-off parents who let you live rent-free in a house they own while you finish school, but you think your roommate may be taking advantage of the situation by mooching free food without asking and even offering it to guests. What can you do to set better boundaries without creating an awkward living environment? Working the night shift doing repetitive work wasn't really what you signed on for, so you've been looking for a new job. Now you've been informed you're on deck for training in a more challenging task that's more up your alley, but you're not sure you can work three more months of overnights before this is slated to happen. What are your best options here? Have any questions, comments, or stories you'd like to share with us? Drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com!

What ‘Ted Lasso' Understands About Redemption

Season 1 and Season 2 spoilers ahead. The second season of Ted Lasso ends with an image of Nate. The once kitman, recently promoted Greyhounds assistant coach is not wearing Richmond attire as we see him lead team exercises on the pitch. Instead, he's in all black, staring at the camera, as we realize he's the head coach of Westham United, the team recently purchased by season one nemesis Rupert Mannion. Just minutes before, we've watched Nate verbally berate Ted during halftime in a game that could put Richmond back in the Premiere League. Nate's arc, from neglected staff member to dismissive and arrogant coach, who struggles with self-loathing and insecurity, is just one of the themes we want to discuss. But a show known for the kindness and forgiveness of its characters also had much to say this year about toxic masculinity and father and son relationships. The program has also had much to say about actions and consequences, except that we feel that there were a few oversights here this season. Marybeth Baggett is professor of English and Cultural Apologetics at Houston Baptist University and an associate editor for Christ and Pop Culture. Her 2019 book Morals of the Story received a CT Award of Merit in our Book Awards. And she's working on a book about the philosophy of Ted Lasso with her husband, who is also at Houston Baptist. Baggett joined global media manager Morgan Lee and editorial director Ted Olsen to discuss how the show defines redemption, why it focused so much on father-son relationships, and what Nate can teach Christians about love.What is Quick to Listen?

Meet today's guest, Merritt Mckenzie, a health care executive who is passionate about growing and scaling organizations through personnel development to impact patients, families, and the community. With over 26 years of experience, starting as an occupational therapist, then a certified hand therapist, Merit later moved into leadership roles including running a sales organization, and lastly took up the role of General Manager. In this episode, Merritt discusses leadership in health care services, with particular emphasis on qualities and tools of great leadership, as well as challenges leaders face with practical solutions. Top Takeaways [01:20] Step into your greatness; Don't be afraid of calculated risks. It is through those risks that you end up learning, developing, and becoming better in your career. [08:22] Critical concepts that emerging healthcare leaders should have: Diversity within the workforce, Embracing Technology, Empowerment Leadership, and Being Innovative. [12:20] Leaders tend to always want to have the answer because they know it already, rather they should be the last to speak and ask more of the questions. [19:14] Lessons learned from successes and failures: Firstly, it is so important that leaders are intentional about mentoring someone but also sponsorship as well. Secondly, be courageous and listen to your inner voice. [26:10] Personal leadership tools: Self-awareness; leaders need to be aware of the impact they are having on others around them. Another is that we should be obsessively curious about people around us if we hope to be impactful in their lives. Other tools include the Strengths Finder tool and the Predictive Index. [30:22] Lessons from an influential leader: Treat people well, be thoughtful and kind to people. [38:30] Leaders do not take time to engage their employees and strategize to harness the full value of their employees. Leaders also often fail to be intentional about listening to all stakeholders at every level of the organization. [44:32] Best career advice ever: "Be You"; there's only one person that can be the best you there is, and that's you. [48:25] Key attributes of an effective Healthcare leader: Engage, Learn, Adapt, Lead. [52:08] Professional Groups recommended for listeners; A.C.H.E (American College of Healthcare Executives), N.A.H.S.E (National Association of Health Service Executives), The Private Directors Association, The Black Corporate Board Readiness Program. [54:20] Books Recommended: "Unleashed: The Unapologetic Leader's Guide to Empowering Everyone Around You" by Frances X. Frei "The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership" by John C. Maxwell [56:13] Advice for health organizations: Be intentional about having a program to develop leaders, and make no assumptions that it is happening organically. [57:43] I want to be intentional about helping team members and colleagues grow and prosper personally and professionally. Hopefully, this shows in clinical outcomes and the growth of the business. Key Quotes: "The best way to predict the future is to create it" – [Abraham Lincoln] "It is important to step into your greatness" "What fear did I confront today?" "Companies who are diverse in their workforce as well as their senior leadership, outperform other companies who are homogenous" "Be intentional and unafraid to pilot and test things as much as possible" "Know that you were called for this, you may not be perfect, but it's not about perfection, It's about the process" "Many years ago, I intentionally wanted to make sure I left any person I engaged...better than I found them" Connect: Find | Merritt Mckenzie On LinkedIn --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/healthcarequalitycast/message
