012 Creating Breakthroughs and The 72-Hour Rule
<p>In this episode we focus on what great learners and leaders do, and on how high performers create breakthroughs. Of all the practices I have been teaching to high performing leaders, the 72-Hour rule is one of the game-changer that enabled more people to accelerate results and create breakthroughs. Here are some of the key points I discuss during this 9-minute podcast:</p> <p><strong>The 72-hour rule states that if you do not take the first step toward applying a new learning and idea within the first 72 hours, the likelihood that you will implement it quickly approaches zero.</strong></p> <ol> <li>New learnings, new insights, and new knowledge carry an energetic potential for change. I call this energetic potential - the “protein value” of learning.</li> </ol> <ol start="2"> <li>At the point you receive and experience a new insight, the potency for change is 100%.</li> </ol> <ol start="3"> <li>As the length of time increases from the exposure to the insight, the potential for change diminishes. Here is a way to look at this mathematically:</li> </ol> <ul> <li>At the incidence of learning — you have 100% potency for change</li> <li>Three hours lapse – a little dissipated and you have 95%-98% potency</li> <li>12 hours – the change potency diminished to 90%</li> <li>24 hours - 85% potency</li> <li>48 Hours - 75% potency</li> <li>72 Hours - 51%-60% potency</li> </ul> <ol start="4"> <li>Below 51%, the energetic potential for change is diluted to the point of ineffectuality. Which practically means that the gravitational pull of current conditions, habits, and the entrenched inertia override and cancel the change energy initiated by the learning and gravitational pull of a new and different future.</li> <li>The cycle of learning is about instantiating ideas and actualizing possibilities. When it works well, it becomes a virtuous spiral of growth and development. Here is what that cycle looks like:</li> </ol> <ul> <li>Stage 1 – you receive: you learn a new skill.</li> <li>Stage 2 – you understand: you test the learning to validate and confirm it.</li> <li>Stage 3 – you apply: you put the new skill to use within 72 hours.</li> <li>Stage 4 – you teach and take ownership: you create success with the new skill, which motivates you to continue using the skill, teach it to others and learn more new skills.</li> </ul> <ol start="6"> <li>The leverage is in the velocity of implementation—how fast you move from idea to development and practice.</li> <li>Sharing the new information and skill with others through teaching and coaching crystallizes your own learning and enables you to achieve a new level of mastery.</li> </ol> <ol start="8"> <li>An idea is only as good as its concretizing action. You need to move immediately to augment the potency of change and build the momentum of new results. The “muscle” to practice is the concretizing muscle – it’s the muscle that determines your application velocity and accelerates the movement from idea up through the spiral to implementation.</li> </ol> <p>How will you activate the 72-Hour rule today? Who will you teach and share these ideas with to build the momentous and virtuous cycle of learning breakthroughs?</p> <p>We are here to enable new growth, and to help create new futures.</p> <p>FULL SHOW NOTES: <a href= "http://www.avivconsulting.com/cnf12">http://www.avivconsulting.com/cnf12</a></p>

011 Rohit Tandon - Lead with your Heart, Gut, and Brain
<p>My guest for this conversation is Rohit Tandon.  Rohit is the Senior Vice President and Business Leader of GENPACT Analytics and Research Business where he drives change and influences results by helping clients harness the value of big data and analytical insights. With over 25 years of leadership experience in companies like GE, IBM, and Hewlett Packard, Rohit is able to help companies build clarity of purpose and structure in order to deliver the performance and financial results they seek.</p> <ul> <li>How do you encourage curiosity in the formative years? “Early in life, I became curious to see beyond what I see, to learn to appreciate different points of view, and to find new and better solutions.”</li> <li>Why should you make non-linear carrier moves to develop end-to-end capabilities? What Rohit learned in the few months in advertising is that, “the best idea in the world will die without the storytelling that brings it to life.”</li> <li>What did you learn in the early development of Accenture India? Needing to become a Generalist and address strategy and execution issues is the best preparation for a General Manager role.</li> <li>What is the best learning experience? “At GE I was surrounded by leaders I looked up to and wanted to emulate. This was the best development experience ever.”</li> <li>“I only hire to my team people who know more than I do in at least one domain and aspect of our business.”</li> <li>Change is an opportunity. A lot of energy is spent on trying to resist change. That energy is better spent in trying to understand the rationale for the change and then identifying the opportunities in the change.</li> <li>Take more risks. Take more leaps of faith, don’t over analyze. Enjoy what you are doing.  It’s your responsibility to create the role.  Lead with your heart, gut, and brain.</li> </ul> <p>FULL SHOW NOTES: <a title="http://www.avivconsulting.com/cnf11" href= "http://www.avivconsulting.com/cnf11">http://www.avivconsulting.com/cnf11</a></p>

010 Dan Leahy - What Is Audacious Leadership
<p>My guest for this conversation is Dan Leahy. Dan is an educator with over 30 years of teaching and consulting experience with a special focus on the emergent capacities of complex adaptive systems.</p> <p>Dan was the president of LEOS (Leadership Institute Of Seattle) for more than a decade and he is currently the Director of the Seattle campus of Saybrook University where he provides strategic and operational leadership for the campus.</p> <p>In this conversation with Dan, we explore his calling and his journey with LEOS, why in order to change the world you must begin by changing the conversation, and that moment when a student’s eyes light up with a clarity about his or her sense of purpose.</p> <ul> <li>Codify the patterns of emergent growth: find the global in the local, identify the universal inside the personal. </li> <li>To change the world, change the conversation. If you are unhappy with the situation, work to reframe it.</li> <li>What is solution focused therapy?</li> <li>How did Dan find his calling of working with people?</li> <li>“The moment when the student eyes light up with a clarity about his sense of purpose felt like connecting with the heart and soul of the work.”</li> <li>“Delivering content became the opportunity to discover the learning in the moment in the room.</li> <li>"If you are not willing and able to lead this organization whole heartedly, get the hell out of the way so that somebody who is can.</li> <li>Leadership is finding the courage to take stance and voice your conviction.</li> <li>As a leader, can I confront the issue of the heart? Am I wholehearted? </li> <li>Management helps to maintain the integrity of the DNA of the system and the leadership works to connect to and engage with the larger environment, where the evolution of the system can be found.</li> <li>What kind of leadership is needed now? What is audacious leadership?</li> <li>Tapping into the potential to evolve is audacious.</li> <li>What is fiberglass syndrome in complex systems?</li> <li>Courageous collaboration requires that the individuals involved are courageous.</li> <li>Generative conversations are intentional conversations.</li> </ul> <p>FULL SHOW NOTES: <a href= "http://www.avivconsulting.com/cnf10">http://www.avivconsulting.com/cnf10</a></p>

009 A Tale of Two Lifeguards
<p>Each of us harbors two characters within. The <em>dedicated</em> part of us goes above and beyond what is required, while the <em>expedient</em> part opts for cutting corners. Every day we get to choose which aspect of our character will show up. That choice can determine our success or failure — and even, in some cases, life or death. </p> <p>One morning as Sara and I arrived at the beach, we noticed that Mikey, a long-time lifeguard, was collecting the dry seaweed along the water’s edge. He told us the seaweed would be used to shore up a sand dune at the edge of the beach that had been destroyed earlier in the season.</p> <p>“Why do you do this, Mikey?” asked Sara. “Clearly this task is not part of the lifeguard job description.”</p> <p>Mikey replied, “I love the beach; it gives me sustenance. I want to protect it and keep its ecosystem healthy so that others can enjoy it too. A couple of mornings each week I engage in a task that contributes to the welfare of the place that I love and that provides me with both livelihood and the love of life.” </p> <p>The following morning was stormy and windy. The lifeguards had taken refuge in their tower, leaving two fishermen and me alone on the beach. After I dove into the water, I discovered that the yellow flags that define the swimming area and serve as my markers were missing. </p> <p>I dashed out of the water to the lifeguard tower. “Where are the yellow flags?” I asked. </p> <p>“No one is here today, so they serve no purpose,” was the dismissive reply from Parker, a new lifeguard. </p> <p>As I returned to the stormy ocean to continue my swim, Parker’s comment bothered me. I could have dismissed it and moved on. However, a part of my mind is wired to capture the odd moments in life that provide learning and teachable value, then slowly make sense of them until I decipher the picture. This process is similar to the one required to develop pictures in the days when cameras had film. To extract the pictures, the film had to be treated with a chemical that gradually converted the latent images into visible ones (photographs). The process took a little time.</p> <p>Did you know that we all have a part of our mind that works like the “old time” development process? In my book <em><a href= "http://amzn.to/2lNHRrQ">Create New Futures</a>,</em> I describe the three speeds of the mind. I call the middle speed the “pondering” mind, because it develops the “pictures” that gradually become clear as the brain connects the dots among the data that constantly flood our brains.</p> <p>Your pondering mind knows your interests and helps you solve problems. In my case, my fascination and inquiry relate to the human story at the convergence of learning, discovery, innovation breakthrough, and the human spirit. Thus when I observe successes and failures (my own as well as others’), I forensically decode them to identify what enables people to produce remarkable outcomes, or what blocks them from producing breakthrough results.</p> <p>Parker’s comment activated my pondering mind. What gradually came into focus was a stark contrast between Mikey’s way of being on the job versus Parker’s. We all have seen the manifestation of these opposing attitudes of dedication and expediency in corporate offices, in hotels and in restaurants. The difference between these two attitudes determines the outcomes you can achieve. Your choice even can be the decisive factor in life or death situations. </p> <p>Mikey exemplified his <em>dedication</em> character by taking on tasks that are beyond the call of duty. Why? Because he cares. He understands deeply that his actions can shape the ecosystem. Mikey represents the people who show up each day ready to contribute by making a difference in their ecosystems. </p> <p>Parker, on the other hand, demonstrated his <em>expediency</em> character when he chose to slide by with the minimal amount of work. He showed no respect for the protocols and rituals that are part of his job. It seems that it did not occur to Parker that putting up the yellow flags is about much more than the utilitarian value of the moment.</p> <p>What caused Parker’s attitude? The absence of attentive care that inspires people to take on extra work. What does it look like when such care is present?</p> <p>We see it in the rituals of our jobs. For example, a farmer walks the perimeters of the farm to find out what needs fixing. A police officer who walks the street and greets people demonstrates his presence and reassures the neighborhood. A pilot who walks around the aircraft to run his visual checklist does so not because he distrusts the ground crew, but because the ritual itself puts him in the mental frame of attention to details. And we see the care in the nurse who provides comfort to her patients.</p> <p>These rituals alert people that they are connected to the great traditions of their fellow professionals. They activate the desire to perform at the highest possible standard. People like Mikey choose dedication over expediency, and continual improvement over the erosion of standards. </p> <p>We all have both lifeguards in us. Every day we get to choose who, and how, we will be. Creating a new future for you and your family, for your team and your business, begins by choosing to go beyond the call of duty, to bring forward your focused presence, love, and dedication to your work and your life. After all, that’s what we are here for: to create new futures by bringing forward care, dedication and love.</p> <p>Mikey or Parker: who do you choose to be today?</p>

008 Paul Werner - What Successful Leaders Do
<p>My guest for this conversation is Paul Werner. Paul is a 25-year veteran of the tech industry with successful and proven leadership experience in large and mid-cap technology companies serving global customers. Currently Paul serves as the Vice President of Sales for the Western U.S. at F5 Networks — a security and application delivery company.</p> <p>In this conversation, Paul shares the essential focus that enables him to produce sustained success. We explore how to create holistic balance when you are leading a competitive Career, and Paul reflects on the attributes of great salespeople, and the leadership philosophy he applies to promote the best in people.</p> <ul> <li>How do you create sustained success? Carving time to rejuvenate is critical to achieving high performance. One way to rejuvenate is to focus on a singular activity that shuts out the noise.</li> <li>“My development came from immersive experience with strong leaders.” Finding strong leaders as mentors can make a huge difference.</li> <li>“Getting to know each member on my team, and connecting at a human level, is how I succeed.”</li> <li>The clues for career development are often right in front of you. In Paul’s case the clue was: “I was doing most of the selling, and the salespeople were making most of the money, and so I realized I should try sales.”</li> <li>The most successful salespeople are truly curious, are disciplined and organized. These attributes make great salespeople: <ul> <li>Curiosity: inquire deeply to understand</li> <li>Discipline: show up organized consistently</li> <li>Engagement: Pull on all organizational assets</li> <li>Drive: demonstrate innate desire to be successful</li> </ul> </li> <li>If you embrace the fractal idea, where the atomic structure reflects and mirrors the galaxies around, framed in the scripture with the idea that man and woman are made in the image of God, and that As Above, So Below — then if the universe is made of three quarters of unrealized potential then you and I too are only accessing a small part of our potential.</li> </ul> <p>FULL SHOW NOTES: <a href= "http://www.avivconsulting.com/cnf8">http://www.avivconsulting.com/cnf8</a></p>

Here are some of the key points I discuss during this 12-minute podcast:</p> <ul> <li>To thrive requires leaders to become life-long, passionate learners propelled by insatiable curiosity. The day you stop learning is the day you begin to die.</li> <li>You enable development, progress, and growth when you demonstrate leadership by facilitating learning for yourself and for your team. We become fully alive when we connect vital ideas, create meaning, apply new practices, and act on possibilities and insights.
</li> <li>We experience the highest impact learning by applying the 90/10 rule of adult learning. Internalizing and integrating transformative nuggets of knowledge, (the “10” in the rule) have the power to update and rearrange what we already know (the “90”).
</li> </ul> <p>By applying the 90/10 rule to your leadership transformation efforts, you will dramatically accelerate the development of your team and the results you hope to create.</p> <p>For full show notes and a list of all links mentioned in the episode visit: <a href="http://avivconsulting.com/cnf3" target= "_blank">http://avivconsulting.com/cnf3</a></p>
