This is a teaser of the bonus episode, Solon, found over on Patreon.Sparta's path to development as a polis would be different to a lot of other Greek city states. Because of this path they would develop institutions that would seem unique in an otherwise Greek world. One of these developments was that of the Agoge, Sparta's system of education to produce loyal and disciplined citizens. It is this system that we turn to today and try and get better understanding of. We will look at what the Agoge was, why it seemed to develop and the different stages a Spartan would go through during his education.  If you would like to hear more and support the series click on the Patreon link at the bottom of the page or you can head to my website to discover other ways to support the series, HereNew bonus episodes come out in the first week of every month,Support the show

He has designed and conducted over 1000 future design processes for top executives and their management teams. Heinz Welcome to the show.   Heinz Kaegi  00:53 Thanks for having me. My pleasure    Sam Wilson  00:56 he pleasure is absolutely mine. Thank you for taking the time to come on today. You're calling in I think you said from Switzerland here. I guess it's evening for you,    Heinz Kaegi  01:04 too, then yes, this evening. Evening.    Sam Wilson  01:08 Well, I appreciate you taking the time out of your evening here to chat with us. Heinz. There are three questions I ask every guest who comes on this show in 90 seconds or less. Can you tell me where did you start? Where are you now and how did you get there?    Heinz Kaegi  01:21 I started eight at the end of my C suite career.I  jumped from the cliffs into my self and Gloria ship. And they trusted angels that they delivered a wink Southaven way down to the beach in Florida, which they did ,Ray it now after three decades old touch it and movie inspiring and challenging 100,000 1000s of executives L three called Zealots.  That is where I am right now. And we have Elish, several books, we have done 1000s of workshops to moving leakers from hard work to current work. And the way this will lead towards sound is we will be creating an economy of heart. Yes. That it Forgive me if I come across as offensive when I ask this question, but it really is truly inquiry more than anything. That's a fairly ethereal concept in its own right. Or it's okay, we're going to move from hard work to heart work. What does that mean? Practically? Or tactically speaking? Okay, practically, hands on. Here it is what it's all about. Please, I have been doing research, I was eager to find out are there on this planet, any leadership loss? Because the word itself is already so misunderstood. And so to say that it's more serious, in many cases, okay, so seven laws of leadership. The first one, the foundation is where there is no purpose, there will be no power. If it gives me an hour, I think if you dozens, hundreds 1000s. of proofs of the pudding. The second about is whether it's an omission, there will be no passion. I mean, the look around you, the lack of reaching competence, in corporate in the corporate setting is huge. Because those managers, they just watched the whole day, the reality channel, and they forget about tuning in with the future channel. And that's why tomorrow, they they do the same thing as yesterday, just that they expect different results, it's not gonna work. So if that is hands on units, then we go to the third lab, where there is no pocus, there will be no real. That fourth one at SEC keep one again, is where there's no commitment, there will be no achievement. on that level, San, for one full week, day and night, we work with the leaders on 12 levels of commitment. Now this is no longer surface stuff. This is not theory. This is really dive deep. It's an immersive process. So we're at the end of this week, those leaders who have the privilege to attend they have 100% clarity about commitment and commitment is all aggregated forced. So while the cascade of an organization which leads to an attitude of the people that do the work, we have to do and damage not to the benefit of the clients nor to the corporation nor to the bottom line. It's the opposite. So with This process that we do, it's called Lex for unsets. Legs stands for leader, Chef Excellence for alias for those leaders. So by doing it the other way around with commitment that comes from within the employee is the CO creators, then it's no longer we have to. It's there, we want to write. So that produces that at the bottom line, thanks to a happy top line, which are human beings. Number five, where does low team there was no success. Many years ago, the development of all those models are this paramount. That was their tip sack. I said, Oh, success. That's the tall only to find out this years later, there is some more that is missing. What do you do with your life, when you have a cheat, there is a success. If you look at very old books from two centuries ago, or Henry Ford, and all those wonderful people, they got into a thick towards, let's say, the altar of their lives. It was only about how can they pass it on it meaning the wisdom of success to be fulfilled, ultimately. So the sixth level is Where is Long mentorship? There will be no leadership in our organization. And number seven, the top one is where there is no hard work, there will be no excellence. Those are the seven, eight right now working on number eight. Just between you, I mean, you the audience, me   Sam Wilson  06:54 what what do please tell what is number eight.   Heinz Kaegi  06:58 This is a secret that I'm gonna share when the time is right, which is soon. Very good. I loved I'm sorry. That's in the context of my next book. Right?   Sam Wilson  07:13 Okay, fantastic. I'm looking forward to that. You've got a book coming out here soon called The Seven Laws of Leadership, which I think is is really the breakdown of the seven steps seven Yes. Things you just told me. When? When does that book get released?   Heinz Kaegi  07:30 A child annuities in the first corner all 23? So probably February, March,   Sam Wilson  07:36 yes, February, March 23. Okay, and I'm assuming that's gonna go through all the major major channels so we can look for it. Look for a sign. And we'll make sure of course, we put, if there's a if there's a link or anything where we can put in on a on a get notified list. Certainly, we'll make sure we include that there in the show notes. But I want to dig really get back into a lot of the things that you just mentioned here. And I guess before we do, though, how did you build this like this is you said, you've finished your C suite career and you're like, Ah, this is what I want to do with the rest of my life for the foreseeable future. But how did you develop these seven Laws of Leadership? Was that something that you developed on your corporate career was this just extensive study? How did you get here,   Heinz Kaegi  08:21 most of it through hands on experience, look, along my long executive career, I have produced many tops, and many flops. The tops were outstanding probate, ego, and the flops. They were my teachers to grow beyond. So I was actually focusing all my career on two questions, mainly, one was what makes a difference between a group of people seemingly working together, and a peak performance to an irresistible peak performance and a second, what makes a difference between me as a manager and me as a leader, those two guides archetype, how to bring them together to form a team spirit within Solon, the way I communicate, I convey messages, I inspire and challenge my people is no longer based on their actual performance. It is now weights by their potential, which requests me to lead from the future. And that is that has just described through these laws of leadership.   Sam Wilson  09:44 Do you in your experience, feel like leadership and or developing this skill set I'll even call it is something you can develop. I mean, is this something that maybe somebody doesn't have the natural typical things we see? In the in the leaders that you're like, Oh, hey, that's a natural born leader is there is this something we can build in people,   Heinz Kaegi  10:06 I say, out of experience that leaders are not born leaders grow out of the mass thanks to challenge that life offers to them saw, everybody has some parts of the quality of the essence of leadership, within based on the fact that we are warm, turns all around your story of a winner. Because when it comes to the conception of a human being, there are so many birds, billions of birds, and if you made the race a that speaks already about some aspects of leadership, which then through light, you are exposed to challenges. And that makes you crawl into your own personal essence of leadership, if you choose to do so. So challenges are great, because they make us grow beyond.   Sam Wilson  11:11 Absolutely, absolutely. So let's let's dial really down into the practical steps of what it is that you're doing, and maybe how you're doing it, can you can you can you give us some some color as to as to what that is?   Heinz Kaegi  11:27 Yeah, this is based on practical experiences, long time. And through an immersive process. This is not surface stuff. So actually, if you, as a leader said, You were attending one of my master classes, and let's imagine we would start on the foundational level, which is key, when there is no purpose there will be no power, they n $4.03 days plus the sweet maths, you spend lots of time with yourself with questions that I'm asking the dive questions, which puts you in a reflex that say, inner reflection to come out with answers. So you will discover you recognize what is inside. And it's mainly about two things on that foundational level, fundamental level, it is about recognizing who you are, that is not inventing yourself, and it's three cognizing. Okay, three cognizing, who you are, and what you are here for what makes you take, what do you stand up for in life? What is your, the vision that you want to fulfill, and this has nothing to do with becoming a copy machine for many other people. This is about discovering your own fingerprint, so that you can leave footsteps along your trail. That means you discover within yourself your all power that makes you move forward, what is it you want to change? Or improve? And what are you allowed this to do that? Because only if wholeheartedly, you are in this topic, whatever it might be? Will you be crowned by success based on resonance. If you have a shallow feeling about subtopics, you're not going to be ending up crowned by success is that the average out of elects concept. The leg stands for leadership, excellence for life. And that is an experience. So you, you get up to challenges that I'm going to offer to you in order to have the seeds that we plant grow from within. And like at the at the end at the seeming end of such a long many years process, you will be receiving a challenge from me that represents a once in a lifetime chance to grow beyond. Like for me, I've offered this challenge to myself at the end of Lex sell the seventh level chip, where the principle is once you reach the top to your top executive, keep climbing. And so for me this was I have offered myself the challenge to learn as how to conduct a symphonic orchestra. This is an impossibility because if you look at the petitions, this thick book with all the instruments on who's older no What's up, this is like a Chinese town or a village when you want to read it. So again, this is impossible, even though I wanted to, to become a conductor, as a teenager, since my dad has chosen Hanes for to learn something solid, and thereafter, let's check out whether the conservatory is so your pass. So I will, I have held true to that vision. So I have found ways to attend an orchestra session to get introduced. And then to get up to that challenge, which is way out of the corporate zone. And it learns, it teaches you how to lead beyond words.   Sam Wilson  15:47 That's a really cool, really cool, Next Level challenge that you have set for yourself. And I think you and I talked about this before we aired or started started recording this, you actually get to fulfill that hear it from before this show will actually even go live here in the middle of October. Yes, that is absolutely cool. I love that. And I think it's really interesting that you said, you're gonna spend two to three months just working on the purpose, the level one, like the bottom, the baseline thing, why did you start there,   Heinz Kaegi  16:26 because I have seen and experienced another path before him. That didn't work. Me as the visionary Sam, of course, exploring and he started with Vision Quest process for leaders. And lastly, they came back after the vision quest stage role, early warning, both fire late evening or in the light that came back, sparking the eyes, great leisure and streams and everything. Six months down the road, most of those regions have transformed into illusions. So I said heights. I mean, this was a great process. And still, there's something missing. So what makes leaders become true? visionaries. In the sense of a true visionary is actually the best real realist because he or she gets the son on the path. So I found out there is something deeper than just the vision. The vision needs a foundation, a solid foundation, which is the purpose of your life. Who are you? And what you stand for.   Sam Wilson  17:43 That's it. And those are questions, I would argue and you probably agree or disagree. I don't know, maybe not. Those are questions that few are willing to take the time to answer.   Heinz Kaegi  17:55 Yes. Yes. And   Sam Wilson  17:59 even even if you came to me today in Heinz, and you said Hey, Sam, answer for me. What is the purpose of your life? I'd be like, Well, I mean, I've got some canned answers some things maybe that are surface that I could probably spit back, be it spiritual, albeit more Earth focused answers, and it's like, but they're probably not as introspective as potentially where you prefer people to go.   Heinz Kaegi  18:23 Yes. To the point, Sam. Absolutely. Congratulations. This is why I'm here to inspire and challenge you. You all to be calm. Cool, you are deep down inside.   Sam Wilson  18:41 Is this your version of retirement Heinz? Because it sounds like this is what you do for fun, or fulfillment or both?   Heinz Kaegi  18:49 Absolutely. I was asked a number of years ago. Hi, it's how long do you want to continue doing this passage sailing? Then I said oh, what do you think? Why should I stop doing what I love so much?   Sam Wilson  19:05 I would argue probably shouldn't I mean maybe the maybe the fruity drink on the beach. Isn't isn't for you must sound like this probably is.   Heinz Kaegi  19:16 The beach boy within me has found together with my dear Regina My wife has found a beautiful sopped on the beach on the island of Cyprus. And we are there since 20 years and from time to time we are in Switzerland as well. Plus, I do have a home's font in the US, as I have shared with him already sad. So I love these contrasts. And they love what they do. That's why I do what I love.   Sam Wilson  19:47 That is awesome. Tell me about your in person events. I know that something that you guys have some of those coming up here in Salt Lake City, and then maybe even potentially here in Florida. So tell me, tell me about those and how we can learn more about those events.   Heinz Kaegi  20:04 Yes, in 2023, in April, we'll be doing in person events in Salt Lake City, plus probably the one in Florida, and the same again in the month of August for those who could not attend in April. And I say this, because we do on purpose, we do not be events, it's a very intimate setting, maximum 25 leaders, because as we already said, this is an immersive process, that is not really for everyone, you need to be willing to face things that life wants you to see Melk to bring out. And then there are seems like lack of self value, even at the top executive level that come that comes that come through and you come across your your paths, and many more things, this is an in depth process with fantastic results, we have so many testimonials, that would anytime approved that every minute, is is worse, to invest in early on development becomes developing the body of leadership in an organization means always, this is developing the power of the corporation. Because to the same extent that we shift our way, leading people, we shape the future of the corporation. So the easiest for you to find out about those events is you connect with me on the Heinz care.com. On kaegi leadership.com, you shall have the the links sound available. Plus there is a landing page. And you can connect as well, to check what I'm saying when I stand on stage. You can watch my latest TED talk about reaching beyond about leading from the future and without leaving Elena's of ideas as its gracious for your children and the next generation. I love it   Sam Wilson  22:35 that that is absolutely fantastic. And I think that's in the reason I think this is relevant, obviously to this show, is that there are so many of us who are either leaders currently or aspiring leaders or will be leaders as our organizations grow and thrive. And more people come on board and getting I think the foundation set right early. Yeah, is paramount to again, it's the the old proverb of building a house on the sand or building it on the rock. It's like okay, you it's better to start with the rock, I don't think to help stay unfair to Well, I if I'm not mistaken. So even though I are on the Florida beach recording this right now. And I think there's a lot of stuff built on the sand here. But regardless, that's not the point just happen to think of that, as I'm sitting here talking kind of funny. But yeah, I think that that's absolutely important. And that's how that's why this is valuable, really, I think to this show that he's listened into our listeners just just because of the importance of leadership and getting these things set right out of the gate as our organizations grow. So thank you for taking the time to really break down I think even just your seven laws, I mean, even just listening to those put got my head to thinking no purpose, no power, no vision, and you went through all those, I won't rehash them. But those are those are really, really powerful. And I look forward to getting a copy of your book here when it comes out early next year. And of course, it will also include here in the show notes, the links to all of your websites where our listeners can find you as well. So Heinz, thank you for taking the time to come on the show today. And really just share with us your life story and your purpose and vision for what it is that you're doing right now. I think it's absolutely inspiring. So thank you for your time. Heinz Kaegi  24:23 Thank you very much for having me

Soup, Soak, and Music: Icelandic Composer Gabríel Ólafs on His New Album, Solon Islandus, and Planning the Perfect Day in Reykjavík

Icelandic composer Gabríel Ólafs has become a poster child for the German term wunderkind. At age 14, he wrote the song that landed him his first record deal. At 19, he released his debut album, Absent Minded, which has been streamed millions of times. Now 23, Ólafs is celebrating two massive achievements. Earlier this year, he co-founded the Reykjavík Recording Orchestra, Iceland's first dedicated studio orchestra, which has recorded music for Netflix, Apple TV, and Deutsche Grammophon. And this summer he released Solon Islandus, his major-label U.S. debut on Decca Records. With its visual aesthetic inspired by film, fashion, and photography, Solon Islandus brings to mind another German term: Gesamtkunstwerk, or "total work of art." For Ólafs, every project has to consider musical and visual aesthetics in equal measure. "I take a directorial approach, so as I begin a new project I like to have the visuals from the get-go," Ólafs says on the latest episode of the Classical Post podcast. "The visual side, for me personally, is an essential part of the whole project. I don't look at it as, 'I have this music and now I need to take a couple of photos.' It's 50-50." From the fascinating variety of instrumental colors Ólafs creates, to the album's film-noir cover and the stunning music video for its title track — featuring members of the Iceland Dance Company and fashion from Iris Van Herpen — Solon Islandus is an incredible release that positions Ólafs as one of the most important musicians to watch today. In this discussion, we talk more about the new album and how his first job in a recording studio sparked his obsession with the recording process. Plus, he shares how daily soaks in a geothermal hot tub stimulate his creativity, and why a perfect day in Reykjavík should involve soup, a soak, lots of licorice, and late-night house music. Listen to Solon Islandus on Spotify, Apple Music, or wherever you stream or download music. — Classical Post uncovers the creativity behind exceptional music.

Welcome to the weekend! This is Stephen Schmidt from the Gazette digital news desk and I'm here with your update for Saturday, September 17 and Sunday, September 18th. Rain appears likely this weekend but it also looks like it will be getting chillier again next week, so maybe go for the umbrella and shorts combo? According to the National Weather Service there will be a 30 percent chance of rain Saturday in the Cedar Rapids area, mainly area 3 p.m. There will be a high of 83 degrees with partly sunny skies. It will be a bit windy, with a 5 to 15 mph wind gusting as high as 25 mph. On Saturday night the rain chance will jump up to 70 percent, with mostly cloudy skies and a low near 68 degrees. Rain chances will continue on Sunday with Saturday's rain lingering into Sunday morning, and a chance for more rain after 2 p.m. When it is not raining, it should be mostly sunny, with a high near 87 degrees. Internet hosting and domain-name registrar business GoDaddy plans to move its operations to downtown Cedar Rapids next year, the company told its Hiawatha employees in an email earlier this summer. “This move represents our need for a smaller space given fewer employees use the office daily,” the company said. Spokeswoman Kristy Nicholas told The Gazette on Friday that the company had not yet announced its “intended location in Cedar Rapids.” GoDaddy was founded by Bob Parsons, who sold his Cedar Rapids-based Parsons Technology financial software company to Intuit in 1994 for $65 million. Johnson County has acquired 83 acres of woodland, prairie and a farmstead near Solon that will be available for public use. The property known as Two Horse Farm, at 2257 Sugar Bottom Road NE, was acquired in part through a donation by Erin and Brian Melloy, the former owners, and in part through a purchase with $1.2 million in state and county conservation funds. The land includes 64 acres of forest, 15.5 acres of reconstructed prairie and a 3.5-acre farmstead that includes a 1890's-era farmhouse and a barn built in 1913 that now houses https://www.theraregroup.org/#:~:text=Located%20in%20Iowa%20City%2C%20Iowa,that%20number%20continues%20to%20grow. (Raptor Advocacy Rehabilitation & Education (RARE)). A unique part of the land transaction is that seven acres of prairie have been donated to the Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska. “The Native Americans our state is named after have no land whatsoever (in Iowa),” said Brad Freidhof, county conservation program manager. The Iowa Tribe controls a 12,000-acre reservation in northeast Kansas and southeast Nebraska, but its original land was in Iowa and was the namesake of the state. As part of the deal with tribal members, the county has agreed to maintain the tribal land as it does the adjacent area. The hope is it will give members of the tribe who now live elsewhere a way to come make connections in the state that was once its home, Friedhof said. A man who was arrested in a California airport while trying to conceal 5 pounds of methamphetamine in his carry-on bag to bring with him to Iowa pleaded guilty this week in federal court. 21-year-old Kiyonte Sowell, of Los Angeles, was convicted in U.S. District Court of one count of conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance. He was indicted with 10 others who were charged with distributing ice meth from 2018 through March 2022. Early this year, the Drug Enforcement Administration was conducting a wiretap investigation into a meth trafficking ring in Cedar Rapids, according to federal prosecutors. On Feb. 28, Sowell went to the Los Angeles International Airport to take a flight to Cedar Rapids. Sowell brought a large roller bag and attempted to take the bag through security as his carry-on luggage, according to the plea. Airport security searched the bag and found about 2,200 grams of meth and arrested Sowell. The drug trafficking ring was led by 36-year-old David Poitier Belton, of Cedar Rapids, also charged in the conspiracy....

This week Atlantis researcher and content creator Mat Chinn returns to show us some of his latest work. Since the time of Plato and his dialogues Timaeus and Critias, scholars, authors and independent researchers have been consumed with finding the fabled lost civilisation of Atlantis. Plato's recount of the information given by Egyptian High Priests to his Greek countryman and statesman Solon has often provided the launchpad for research in this area, and the eerily accurate date that Plato provides (c. 9500 BC), and its temporal association with the Younger Dryas climatic upheaval has only added fuel to the fire in recent years. Following clues from Plato's account, beyond the Pillars Of Hercules, many locations have been proposed for its location. From The Azores and The Richat Structure, to Doggerland and Antarctica. Can modern science and engineering aid us in our quest? More recent technological developments in satellite photography, oceanography and bathymetry surveying may finally provide indisputable evidence for the existence of Atlantis, a claim that has led honest and hard working researchers to be labelled as kooks, cranks and fantasists for daring to approach this subject with an open, enquiring mind.   Well not here. We love a good mystery at The Amish Inquisition and can't wait to hear how Mat's research has evolved since we last spoke and if we are any nearer to nailing down this historical enigma.   ______________________________________________________________________________________   For more information on Mat's work, follow these links:   Youtube - https://www.youtube.com/c/Apocalypse0/featured   Odysee - https://odysee.com/@Apocalypse:5   ______________________________________________________________________________________________   #Atlantis #lostcivilization #ancienthistory After our chat with Mat, we covered the usual housekeeping and some current events..

James White, 58, of North Liberty, faces two counts of third-degree sexual abuse and two counts of sexual exploitation by a school employee. He is being held in the Johnson County Jail on a $40,000 bond. A woman, who was student of his during the 2006-07 school year and was coached by him on the softball team, went to police in March to report the abuse, according to criminal complaints. The woman, who was 15 when White was her teacher and coach, told police she was groomed by White and they had a sexual relationship. White, then 43, is accused of calling the then 15-year-old and asking her to meet him on a gravel road in rural Johnson County, according to the complaints. He reportedly gave her directions and asked her not to hang up the phone the whole time she was on her way there. In another instance, White reportedly invited her over to his house while his wife, who also was a high school softball coach, was out of town coaching in a state softball tournament. White was ordered to have no contact with his accuser. He posted a $40,000 surety bond and was released from jail Monday, court records show. White worked as a teacher and softball coach at CCA for several years before he left in 2012 to coach at Solon High School. He coached softball at Solon until 2017, then returned as an assistant baseball coach for the 2021 and 2022 seasons. His contract at Solon ended earlier this summer, according to Solon School District Superintendent Davis Eidahl. https://www.thegazette.com/iowa-prep-sports/jim-white-named-national-coach-of-the-year/ (In 2017, White was named the National) https://www.thegazette.com/iowa-prep-sports/jim-white-named-national-coach-of-the-year/ (High School Coaches Association coach of the year.)

Representing Judaism, Christianity and Islam respectively, Rabbi Michael Ross (Rabbi of Temple Beth Shalom in Hudson, OH), Father Patrick Schultz (Parochial Vicar at Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church in Wadsworth, OH), and Masroor Malik (Khatib at the Chagrin Valley Islamic Center in Solon, OH) share their perspective on how their faiths are similar, how they differ (and perhaps differ greatly), and what they believe some misperceive about their chosen religion.

Together, Nathan and Eugene have written the forthcoming book, Evaluate like a Grandmaster. As highly-accomplished players and trainers, Nate and Eugene noticed that there wasn't a lot of chess literature helping players improve their ability to evaluate positions. They have written a great book to help address this problem. In our conversation, they highlight some of the lessons from the book, including an important discussion of the perils of relying too heavily on numerical engine evaluations. We also discuss some of the standout points and anecdotes from Nate and Eugene's other work. Nate is a data scientist who writes a great, free chess newsletter called Zwischenzug, and Eugene is a respected opening theoretician who has recently released his first Chessable course, The Grand Prix Attack Reloaded.
