In this week's episode, Chief Victory Officer, Eric Guy, is joined by Dave Lutes, coach and consultant at Under New Management Group LLC and McCluen-Martin Associates LLC. They discuss the importance of servant leadership and how it benefits all organizations.Takeaways:- Organizations should place value on their employees' lives and recognize that they have God-given talent and ability that can be discovered and unlocked.- Nurture the soil that your people are planted in with care, good feedback, open communication, delegation, and investment.- You will retain your people if they feel you're investing in them, if they have a good relationship with their manager, and if they have a career path and development plan.- People want to discover a place that taps into their heart's desires and gives them a chance to test it out.- Figure out what people's flight risk assessment will be. Is this candidate in risk of leaving and finding something better? The impact of losing them would be considerable if they're a high potential candidate.- If you claim to have an open door policy for communication with your people, it has to be more than just a literal open door into your office.- People need to see that it's okay for them to fail in your organization and that they will be supported if they do.- Investing in people increases your return on investment.- Get the right people in the right job, doing the right thing, in the right way, with the right support. Give them the right training, achieving the right objectives and goals, with the right succession planning model.Quotes:- “Create the soil for your people to grow.”- “It took me years to discover what made the light come on in my own heart.”- “Servant leadership is smart business.”- “Don't boil the ocean, boil a teacup. You can't change the culture overnight.”MAKE THIS YOUR BEST DAY YET!

The online space can feel like the wild, wild west sometimes, especially when it comes to creating content on Instagram. You post and post and post and end up feeling like the bad act at a comedy club…with RADIO SILENCE meeting you on the other end. A BIG reason I find newer coaches & course creators experience this? They don't understand the difference between attraction, nurture and sales content. They're trying to skip to sales content when they don't have any ideal client followers (because they skipped attraction content). Or they move straight from attraction to sales content, expecting their brand new followers to buy from them with zero warm up. HELLOOO that's like asking someone to get married on the first date #nothankyou In this quit hit episode I'm teaching you the difference between attraction, nurture & sales content and how to start creating all three.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to "The Dark Mind Detective," where we unravel the mysteries that lie within the intricate labyrinth of the human psyche. I'm your guide, Marc, and today, we embark on a journey into the shadows, exploring the enigmatic realms of mind control, free will, and the age-old debate of Nature versus Nurture. In the pursuit of understanding the depths of the human mind, we'll delve into the tales of covert experiments, like the infamous MKUltra, where manipulation and trauma-based mind control cast a chilling spell on unsuspecting subjects. What can we glean from these dark chapters of history? What warnings do they hold for humanity? As we navigate through the twists and turns of the mind, we'll ponder the age-old question: Are people shaped by the events that unfold around them, or is there an innate essence guiding our destinies? The battle between Nature and Nurture echoes through the corridors of time, influencing who we are and who we become. But, dear listeners, our exploration goes beyond the surface. We'll contemplate the concept of free will, dissecting the profound words of Aleister Crowley, who declared, "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law." What does this mean for the choices we make, and how does it resonate with the hidden influences that surround us? Join me in this suspenseful and persuasive journey, as we unravel the threads that connect us to the shadows of our own minds. "The Dark Mind Detective" beckons you to explore the mysteries that lie beneath the surface, inviting you to question, discover, and perhaps, uncover the secrets that shape the essence of our existence. --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/darkminddetective/message

Welcome back to Moment. Your moment on a Monday for calm and connection and maybe even a shift in perspective before the week ahead. This week I am speaking with Paul Morgan-Bentley, author of “The Equal Parent” and dad to his three-year-old son. He welcomed into the world via surrogacy with his husband, Robin. As a gay dad, Paul found himself in a unique position as he took on primary caregiving and felt sick of all the praise he received for doing the basics. He saw how mothers were carrying the labour of childcare and asked why parental care is so unequal in households across the country. Is it biology? Gendered stereotypes? or something else? We chat about what needs to change to encourage dads to take on more care responsibilities and encourage equal parenting. I hope you enjoy this moment episode.

Welcome to Day 2242 of Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me. This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom Wisdom Nuggets – Proverbs 15:1-7 – Daily Wisdom Wisdom-Trek Podcast Script - Day 2242 Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps! I am Guthrie Chamberlain, and we are on Day 2242 of our Trek. The Purpose of Wisdom-Trek is to create a legacy of wisdom, to seek out discernment and insights, and to boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before. In today's Wisdom Nugget, it's a pleasure to have you join me on this journey through the timeless wisdom of the Bible. As we navigate life's twists and turns, we find the guidance we need in the eternal pages of the Scripture. Pause… Today, we're delving into Proverbs 15:1-7 from the New Living Translation, which offers profound insights to enrich our daily lives. So, lace up your hiking boots, and let's trek the trails of the wisdom of Proverbs. Pause… Verse 1: “A gentle answer deflects anger, but harsh words make tempers flare.” This verse reminds us of the power of our words in diffusing or escalating conflicts. A gentle response can calm anger, while harsh words fan the flames of rage. Pause… So, what's the solution to this problem of escalating anger? Practice Gentle Responses: Choose to respond with gentleness and humility, even in the face of anger. By doing so, you can prevent a situation from spiraling out of control and foster understanding. Pause… Verse 2 offers an intriguing perspective on knowledge. “The tongue of the wise makes knowledge appealing, but the mouth of a fool belches out foolishness.” This verse highlights the role of wisdom in making knowledge attractive and the contrast of foolishness spewing out nonsensical words. Pause… What can we learn from this verse? Communicate with Wisdom: Let your words be a conduit for wisdom and understanding. Present knowledge in an appealing way, and avoid spouting senseless words. Pause… Verse 3 emphasizes God's omnipresence. “The Lord is watching everywhere, keeping his eye on both the evil and the good.” This verse serves as a reminder of God's constant vigilance, as He watches over both the wicked and the righteous. Pause… How can we apply this truth to our lives? Live in Awareness of God's Presence: Recognize that God is ever-watchful, and let this awareness guide your choices and actions. Live a life that acknowledges His presence in all circumstances. Pause… Now, let's explore verse 4. “Gentle words are a tree of life; a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.” This verse underscores the life-giving quality of gentle words, which provide nourishment to the soul. In contrast, deceitful words crush the spirit, leading to a sense of desolation. Pause… What's the solution here? Nurture with Gentle Words: Speak words that uplift and nourish the spirit. Avoid deceit and falsehood, as they can have a detrimental impact on the emotional and spiritual well-being of others. Pause… Now, verse 5 emphasizes the importance of truth. “Only a fool despises a parent's discipline; whoever learns from correction is

You tell yourself, “This year, I'm gonna do it!” You write down your business goal. You put it where you can see it constantly. You're determined to reach that pinnacle you've set for yourself this time! A few months later... you've forgotten about it or given up on it.We tend to only set goals once a year, and that's one of the reasons why goal setting often doesn't work for most people.

God Reveals His Nurture Today we are going to look at one of my favorite words in the Bible – the great Hebrew word Hesed, which the ESV often translates as “steadfast love!” Read Exodus 34:1-9 The LORD, the LORD, a God merciful and _____________, slow to ____________, and abounding in steadfast ______________ and truth, keeping steadfast love for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but Who will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the sins of the fathers on the children and the children's children to the third and fourth generation. -Exodus 34:6-7 God will reveal more of Himself to those who are growing in their relationship with Him. The word abounding is the word Rab (H7227a), which occurs 414x in the Old Testament. It is often translated much, many, great, or abounding. Many are the sorrows of the wicked, but steadfast love (Hesed) surrounds the one who trusts in the Lord. -Psalm 32:10 How does God want us to think about Him when we think about His name? As the God who ABOUNDS in steadfast love (Hesed)! The word Hesed (H2617) occurs 249 times in the Hebrew Old Testament. The ESV usually translates it as “steadfast love.” The CSV usually translates it as “faithful love.” The KJV and others usually translate it mercy, lovingkindness, or goodness. One Jewish scholar translated it as grace. Surely goodness and mercy (Hesed) shall follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. -Psalm 23:6 The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness/ truth. -Lam. 3:23 Let not steadfast love and faithfulness/ truth forsake you; bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. -Proverbs 3:3 Who perfectly embodied God's Hesed (steadfast love, grace) and Emet (faithfulness, truth)? Jesus And the Word (Jesus) became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen His glory, glory as the of the only Son of the Father, full of (abounding in) grace and truth. -John 1:14 What special times will God's steadfast love matter to you? When you have sinned Have mercy on me, O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions. -Psalm 51:1 When you love those who have sinned against you with a Godlike love. And I will betroth you to Me forever. I will betroth you to Me in in righteousness and in justice, in steadfast love and in mercy. I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness. And you shall know the Lord. -Hosea 2:19-20 For I desire steadfast love and not sacrifice, the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings. -Hosea 6:6 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness (HESED), and to walk humbly with yout God. -Micah 6:8 When you are reaching out to those who don't yet know God. And he prayed to the Lord and said, “O Lord, is this not what I said when I was yet in my country? This is why I made haste to flee to Tarshish; FOR I KNEW that you are a gracious God and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love, and relenting from disaster.” -Jonah 4:2 He (Jesus) is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through Him, since He always live to make intercession for them. -Hebrews 7:25
Moving from internal thought leadership to being a solo act means having to take on a lot of new roles. Marketing, research, and publishing all fall on your shoulders now. Are you prepared? Today our guest is Dan Pontefract, who, after a long prosperous career at companies like Telus, struck out on his own as a leadership strategist, change expert, keynote speaker, and award-winning author. His fifth book Work-Life Bloom: How to Nurture a Team that Flourishes will be released in November of 2023. Dan shares his journey from working at Telus as Chief Learning Officer, using the company as a lab with the ability to real-time test ideas to teaching the models he helped create internally, to external companies guiding others through leadership development and culture change. As an author much has changed over the ten years since his first book was published. Dan shares his experience both with untrustworthy and fantastic partners in publishing. In addition, he explains why you should be ready to market the book yourself, the big differences between self, hybrid, and traditional publishing! If you are just getting started or about to break out from corporate thought leadership, Dan provides valuable advice for thought leaders at any stage! Three Key Takeaways: · When doing market research look at others in your sphere at your level. Then look at those above you and determine what sets them apart. What can you learn from what they are doing? · Be continually and continuously adding to your body of work. · Thought leadership can take a product that might not land you a meeting, and open the door to a more interesting conversation.

In this episode of the Millennial Dentist podcast, I explore strategies for ensuring the success of your dental associates. A scheduling approach that emphasizes limiting specific procedures to prioritize quality over quantity is the key. By blocking certain procedures and assigning them to capable providers, we optimize our menu of services, promoting growth and efficiency. As the practice owner, I share my journey of gradually reducing the range of services I personally provide, thus ensuring that associates have the opportunity to thrive and flourish. @1:53 - Diagnosis on Feeding the Associate @6:18 - Reducing the Services @9:51 - Example of Aligning Specific Procedures with Specific Dentists @13:31 - Trajectory or Outcome of Implementing It @16:34 - Pitfalls and Providing Satisfaction to Nurture the Patients' Mindset Who is Dr. Sully Sullivan? Dr. Sully is a fourth-generation dentist from Nashville, Tn. After receiving his doctorate of dental surgery from the University of Tennessee, he moved back to Nashville to practice with his father. By continuing to invest in his education through adult orthodontics, soft tissue grafting, dental implants, third molar extractions, and obstructive sleep apnea, he helped double his practice in just 24 months. As a millennial, he truly believes in working smarter not harder, which has led him to utilize technology to not only deliver better patient care but more efficient care. Dr. Sullivan regularly uses CEREC, 3D imaging with Galileos, 3D printing, and multiple lasers. In addition to his practice, he started the Millennial Dentist Podcast in February of 2017 to help push his fellow colleagues to take their dental careers to the next level. Dr. Sully lectures around the country on cone beam technology, cad/cam dentistry, obstructive sleep apnea, and practice management. He is also an ambassador for the 3D-Dentist teaching facility in Raleigh, NC.

The Money Garden: Design, Nurture, and Enjoy Your Financial Life In this episode, Tonya Leigh discusses the concept of elegance in budgeting. She emphasizes the importance of spending in a way that enhances life and brings abundance, rather than scarcity and fear. Tonya shares her personal practice of having a monthly "money date" to intimately connect with her finances and make intentional decisions. She highlights the positive impact this practice has had on her net worth over the years. Tonya also mentions her upcoming workshop, "The Money Garden," where she will delve deeper into money mindset and intentional money management. Living within our means is also highlighted as an important aspect of an elegant budget. Overspending can lead to stress, anxiety, and a sense of scarcity. The host encourages living within our means to create a sense of abundance and wealth. This means appreciating and fully utilizing what we already have before bringing in new things. It is about being mindful of our purchases and avoiding buying things that will go unused or sit in our closets. Overall, the episode promotes the idea of an elegant budget as a way to create a fulfilling and abundant life. It encourages conscious spending that is driven by joy, excitement, and alignment with our values and goals. Episode breakdown: 00:01 Elegance in spending. 05:10 The elegant budget. 09:41 The Three Mothers 12:44 The Pareto principle. 17:09 Investing in personal growth. 23:38 Maximizing your means. Quotes: "Between overindulgence and frugality is elegance." "Go out there, eat the cake, spend the money, dance on tables, enjoy life today." "Eating what you want, when you want, spending as much money as you want today is stealing from your future in some ways." "People can call me superficial, they can call me whatever they want, but I love pretty things." "I want to be wealthy in all of the ways and not just financially." "Are you ready to tend to your wealth, watch it grow and make money feel beautiful?"

I'm answering one of the BIGGEST questions in life thats been argued for centuries… What REALLY makes the difference in the trajectory of our lives…. NATURE or NURTURE???Which has the greater impact? Is it the traits you were BORN with, or is it the traits you GROW into as a direct reflection of your environment?Here's what I've found.It's a combination, and the OPTIMAL way to maximize both is to NURTURE THE NATURE. That's because winning is not only MENTAL. It's also ENVIRONMENTAL.For example…if you're a parent and you see your child gravitate to specific activities, do everything you can to give them the opportunity to grow those talents. That applies if they sing and dance, play sports, are academically gifted, or have admirable personality traits.The greatest gift you can give a child, or anybody else for that matter, is to REMOVE BARRIERS and CREATE TIME AND SPACE for them to fully develop those talents.Too often, we pick one or the other, and that's a HUGE MISTAKE.To nurture the nature, you must uncover what those gifts and talents are.LISTEN.Ask QUESTIONS.Spend DEDICATED TIME helping to uncover those gifts.Routinely give ENCOURAGEMENT and PRAISE.And most important of all, BE IN THE MOMENT.Here's the coolest part of all.When you discover and grow the gifts, talents, and greatness in them.Often, you'll find their greatness is a REFLECTION OF YOU.
