GYMH 56 The Importance of Pushing & Provoking People Out of Their Comfort Zone

It takes courage to be candid, to be called an agitator, a contrarian. If you are, it probably means you’re pushing people outside of their comfort zone. They don’t always appreciate that.

What it means to provoke Jody and Michael talk about Michael’s keynote speech at Mike Kin’s Influence and Impact...


GYMH 55 How to Think Big in Your Business

One of the best ways we can extend our thinking is to talk to people who see things differently. They ask different questions and can inspire you to think differently.

One of the pathways to thinking bigger about your business is by talking to people at a deeper level, and Michael discusses how to make it happen. Are you...

It’s the heart of your message, a piece of content that will provide incredible value to your audience. Maybe you haven’t been able to translate...


GYMH 51 Fix Your Consulting Strategy and Increase Your Reach

We all hit a point in our careers and dreams when we realize we need to adjust our strategy.

This template reflects a mindset and process shift that Michael experienced nearly twenty years ago when he was in a meeting with a CEO who was unable to think broadly about the impact he wanted and the problem he had.

GYMH 44 Communicating the Worth of Your Services with the Value Calculation

One major pain point for speakers and consultants is putting a real dollar value on their services. Businesses and business owners often want us to justify our fees so they, in turn, can justify paying them. The best way to approach this is to think about their problems in terms of time – their time – and use the Value Calculation to give them a concrete number of what it will cost NOT to solve the problem. What is the value of 10 minutes? How much is 10 minutes worth to your client? It...

GYMH 42 How the 3D Framework Works for Consultants and to Speakers

The 3D Framework is a big concept that, so when it comes to implementing it on a granular level, where do you start? You start with a question: what's the outcome we want to design? Which brings us to the first D in the framework. Design The end game matters, and the very first question you should ask is whether you're the right person to solve the problem. It doesn't do a lot of good to chase jobs for the money, so if the answer is no, walk away. We should spend our time serving where...


GYMH 41 Design, Develop, and Deliver Transformation for Your Clients

Last week we talked about the Ask. Listen. Learn. Serve. Mantra. You ask because you want to learn. You listen to ensure you learn. You engage in conversation to prove that you understand. Then you bring your expertise to bear with what you've learned, and you've earned the right to serve them on a deeper level. That is what leads to a sale of your services. The challenge is that some people don't realize transformation is possible. Our work is to push them in a way that opens their eyes...


GYMH 40 - The Path to Impact is Ask, Listen, Learn, & Serve

But there’s a downside to isolation that limits our impact…spending too much time in our own heads can lead to overthinking and ultimately to misunderstanding the very people we seek to serve. The simple truth is that working on our own will never reveal what we most need to know about those we seek to attract—the words they use in their minds to describe the way they feel, the pain they are experiencing, the outcome they wish they had. The good news is that there is an easy process...


GYMH 39 - Are You Sharing Your Thanks and Gratitude Enough?

In honor of the Thanksgiving Day holiday in the US, this week’s episode is about gratitude and giving thanks. Too often we put the bar to high before we make the time to express our thanks and gratitude. Instead of capturing the moment and just letting others know how grateful we are, we look for a way to make a bigger splash in expressing our appreciation. The result: Often it never happens because we put an obstacle in our way. Or, worse yet, we completely forget to acknowledge the...


GYMH 38 - Strategic Partnerships: Waste of Time or Path to Impact?

Most of us who lead expertise-based businesses work alone. We focus our effort in a specific topic area. We serve a specific type of client or market niche. We solve a specific problem for those we serve. As our relationships with the clients we serve grow strong we become trusted advisors—people they turn to for help on a regular basis. But often the solutions to those other problems are not within our core areas of expertise and experience. Though it’s tempting to want to step up,...


GYMH 37 - What's Your Core Framework?

If you’re anything like me you love to create content. It’s a path to sharing your insights with others, and sometimes it’s the easiest way to clarify and focus your thinking on a topic. But you know what? There comes a time when you need to stop creating more content and leverage what you have created. To look at those files and piles of documents created from your ideas and look for a way to share them so you can create more impact for the audience you serve. For most of us the very...
