Pattern Recognition

Business & Economics Podcasts

In business – as well as our personal lives – we focus on success. We would argue that we should focus more on failures and accepting them. This is your professional journey – you started it, chose it. Most of us move forward by sheer force of will … until that no longer works. We move forward with our best asset – a sharp mind, a winning smile, being politically savvy, whatever. Until those no longer work. How about we try this again. Celebrated Author and Board Advisor Todd Wilms is innately curious about transition into something new – new job, new company, new role, new location, or just a new you. It’s all new – no person ever enters the same river twice. New river and new you.

Fear Makes That 'First Step' the Hardest

6/21/2021
Firsts can be our biggest challenges. First kid, first leadership role, first time CEO, first time entrepreneur, first time surfing, riding a bike, or a marathon are challenging. The struggle is two-fold; learning this new skill and the fear of learning this new skill. “What if” questions flood our minds. Often unaware, the person will start to live in the future and see worst-case scenarios. I have said before on my podcasts, “the most miserable business people I meet are big idea people,...

Your Words Create Your Perception

6/7/2021
This podcast is all about perception and how you choose to see yourself in the world. And if you are thinking of skipping this one, don’t. Perception goes beyond daily aphorisms or other “surface” tactics to boost your mood. Perceptional changes happen deep within you, may take some time, and open new and refreshing possibilities for leaders. If a person believes that leaders should be stoic, show no weakness, and always “game on,” that person is spending tremendous energy and brain space...

Everyone's Favorite: Challenging Leaders

4/8/2021
My first challenging leader was for my paper route (if you don’t know what it is, ask your parents) when I was ten years old. Unfortunately, it didn’t stop there. Whether it is a new boss looking to make their mark, bad hiring decisions, lack of an appropriate talent pool, or just lack of training, challenging leaders are widespread. There are positive challenges to help you, your team, and your company grow; there are negative challenges. Both positive or negative can be hard to understand,...

The Challenge of Never Being Satisfied

4/8/2021
If you were alive in the 90s, you invariably heard the Barenaked Ladies “If I had a Million Dollars.” The last line of the song is “I’d be rich.” The crazy thing is, for most people, you might move that goal and get more. It’s not only money; it can be partners, accolades, material possessions, body image, etc. Once we reach a goal, we start thinking about the next goal. This is especially true of goal-oriented people. If this “moving goal syndrome” remains unchecked, that person will never...

Imposter Syndrome as an Asset

4/8/2021
Great leaders see market opportunities that others do not. They see around corners, find and build a great team, and can even collaborate with passionate (and sometimes challenging) leaders around them. In short, they see what others do not. Let’s become great leaders and see Imposter Syndrome in a way that others do not - as an asset. Like so many obstacles, roadblocks, and challenges in our lives, we see them as a detriment or a weakness. Weakness is the wrong way to approach feeling like...

What Is Pattern Recognition?

4/7/2021
Business leaders need a whole new set of tools to be successful. It is no longer good enough to have expertise in your discipline. Leaders need interpersonal skills, empathy, awareness, and 3rd party objectivity to see the blind spots in all of us. Simply put, Pattern Recognition is the blend of business acumen and psychology that makes leaders great. If you want to be the very best, understanding your personal biases and obstacles will need to merge with tools to build the best teams,...
