Positivity: It Costs Nothing

10/29/2021
In late 2016, a 6-year old boy named Alex Myteberi wrote a letter to President Obama offering to help a five-year-old Syrian refugee boy — if you recall, the iconic image of the horrific conflict in Syria showed a young boy covered in blood and dust in an ambulance after his house in Aleppo was destroyed in a blast. Obama not only read Alex’s letter — but he celebrated his kindness at the White House, and as part of an international refugee speech. His mom, Val Myteberi, held back tears...

The Work is Worth It

9/23/2021
Hard work. It’s often connected to producing things you can see or feel — it’s tangible. When you’re shifting from the ultimate producer of things, to leader of people… it’s uncomfortable. What you once described as hard work — physically producing deliverables and tangible things — now becomes putting in the time and effort onto becoming a better person, a better leader of people. In today’s episode of the Rebel Leadership Podcast, I’m talking to Colleen Luby, the Director of Brand...

Don't Sacrifice Who You Could Become

8/25/2021
Every experience along your journey is worth it, whether you realize it or not. Who you are today doesn’t define who you will become tomorrow. If we get into the habit of pausing to reflect and listen to what those around us are trying to tell us — so we believe in it ourselves — opportunities will open and true transformation starts to happen. In this episode of The Rebel leadership podcast, we’re talking to two developers at different stages of their journey. Kyle Sheldon, a senior SaaS...

Art of the Ah-Ha Moment

6/25/2021
The art of the ah-ha moment is a tricky thing. You can see it happening. A lightbulb. A revelation. A rebelation. But to arrive there requires self-reflection, a pause moment. Katy McGrath, our VP, Client Services at Rebel Interactive Group, tells her powerful story on today’s episode about the ah-ha she just experienced, and how she arrived there.

The Sweet Spot

6/15/2021
When someone is in their sweet spot, magic happens. Leaders have a tremendous responsibility in finding the sweet spots of their employees. It’s a choice. They can either seek to understand each employee on a human level in order to learn what truly drives and motivates them, or they can simply have them do the job they were hired to do. When you allow people the freedom to work on what fills their cup — lights them up — it’s a movement that can take businesses to greater heights they...

Affirmation: A Love Language

6/9/2021
One simple question managers or leaders can ask that has the power to change the dynamic between themselves and those around them: “What motivates you in the day to day?” I sent a quick email back to Emmy Gray the other day, boosting her up for handling a very complex client communication with poise and clarity. She’s a strategic client relationship lead in our company — and that job is very intense. It’s filled with a lot of emotions and complexities and pressure from all angles —...

"Don't tell anyone, but..."

5/28/2021
Raise your hand if you’re in a leadership role and you’ve said these words: “Don’t tell anyone, but…” That’s the line. It’s a tightrope. The balance between leadership and friendship is complex and ever-changing. The dynamic is subtle and nuanced — and one that is worth talking about. Listen, reflect, and embrace your next ah-ha moment.

Good Vibes Only

4/29/2021
Vibe. According to the dictionary, it’s a person's emotional state or the atmosphere of a place as communicated to and felt by others. Technically, It’s intangible; but as working professionals, we all feel it and sometimes, see it. Interviewing candidates, especially in a Zoom world, is a difficult task. There are so many subtleties people give off that show who they really are and it’s the vibe they give off that’s most important — whether they know it or not, leaders are really...

The Finish Line

4/26/2021
One of our exceptionally talented new business development leads, Joe Martin, asked me a question the other day. It stopped me in my tracks. It was right after a company-wide meeting where we talked with 75 people about big picture themes and vision. He said, “But Allison, what’s the end goal? How will we know we’ve reached it?” He was on the verge of an ah-ha moment; one that would teach him to see life and work differently. That it’s not about hitting a certain number of employees or a...

Operations Overhaul

3/19/2021
Process. Operations. Two terms that sound so daunting — so heavy — so… boring. But leaders know that successful operations have the power to transform a business and people’s lives — customers, employees, and partners. Mike Minutillo has been a leader in the auto body collision repair industry for more than 40 years. Now retired for 5 years, he had owned and operated Master Auto Body in southern Florida — a multimillion, three-location autobody business. Master Auto Body was recognized as...

Hustle...Especially On The Hard Days

3/1/2021
Hustle. It's really the fuel that drives leaders forward when pursuing their vision, but it's hard to keep that energy up every day, especially on the hard ones. Gurps Rai is the founder and CEO of Dropp. The company’s patented See It, Want It, Get It technology allows users to click on products within video and purchase it. Dropp has successfully launched its beta and the results have been tremendous. His background is more than impressive — from being a prominent figure in the global...

The Winning Streak: Coach Assaiante's Perspective

2/8/2021
You know the feeling when you’re in the thick of a winning streak? The pressure is on. The momentum is real. The emotions run high. As the leader in that situation, it’s a complex pressure cooker to keep it all together and to make sure complacency doesn’t get in the way of success. Coach Paul Assaiante is joining Allison Minutillo on today’s episode of the Rebel Leadership Podcast. He’s the Men’s Squash and Tennis coach at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut. No name school you might...

Let the Best Thinking Win

1/24/2021
When an organization is completely aligned and collaborating with each other towards a common direction and purpose — that's when the magic really happens. Leaders must persistently reinforce the best thinking and the best ideas, no matter where or whom they come from. Because when it's less about the pride of ownership of one's individual idea, and more about collective ownership of the best idea, innovation will be the norm. Paul Pita, Rebel Interactive Group's Chief Branding Officer, and...

Rand Fishkin on the 4-Letter Dirty Word: RISK

12/10/2020
Leadership can arguably be boiled down to two things: have great ideas, make exceptional decisions. But sometimes those decisions require taking risks. Risks are often associated with a negative connotation. It seems like you’re making a bold move that hasn’t been founded in data but when you really think about risks, sometimes it’s an emotional connection or need to do something different because all of the signs are pointing in that direction. There have been compelling lies fed to us as a...

When Lives are at Stake: A Heart Surgeon’s Perspective on High-Performing Teams

11/24/2020
Rebel Leadership happens in the most unexpected places. We convinced a heart surgeon — yup, you heard it right — to talk to us about the inner-workings of leadership in the complex heart surgery operating room where patients' lives are at stake. We have the honor of speaking with Dr. Igor Gosev, one of four cardiac surgeons at the University of Rochester Medical Center. He’s a key opinion leader for mechanical circulatory support — in other words, he performs and educates nationally on his...

Put Your Oxygen Mask On First

11/23/2020
Think back to when we used to fly on airplanes regularly. The flight attendant comes on and instructs you to put your oxygen mask on first, before assisting others. It's a pretty simple concept: if you run out of oxygen, you can’t help anyone else. Being a leader is rewarding, challenging, and meaningful, but it can also be mentally, physically, and emotionally exhausting. On today’s episode of the Rebel Leadership Podcast, we’re talking to Ilana Traeger, a Certified Health Coach from The...
