No 27: Maximum IntervYOU

Tip: Don't show up to the interview with the following words written on your hands. You've got about 15 words to convince me we should meet about the position I'm looking to fill. Here's how to make it count and how to wow me in an interview. Who else is giving you that?!

No 26: Wouldn’t It Be A Shame If…

Facebook is two faced... When I try to sort out all that has to be done... all the 'good' things we could be working on... I have a simple rule I seem to apply. Job applicants and interviewees of the world... I'm not small-minded, but I'm only willing to lend you a small part of my mind and only for a few moments. Don't make me have to work to hard to figure you out. (More in the next Leader Tonic.)

No 25: One in Service of Four

Billy Bob Thornton... really... I just want to take one day a week to make the others 27.5% better. Is that too much to ask? LeaderTonic: It's all about considering what "would be a shame to have not happen" and making sure there is no shame... more on that next week.

No 24: What You Need to Hear

What if the Mona Lisa had blinked right then? Thank goodness I was told what I needed to hear, not what I wanted to hear... and what I can do to keep it that way. Leadertonic: What if you could use one day a week to make the other four 27.5% more productive. That's 110% of a purer YOU.

No 23: Stop on Principle

A trifecta of bifocals Separating my principles from the techniques I've always used to effect them will help me be the leader my very experienced team needs - one that ask questions - and never panics at challenges to the way things are done. Leadertonic: Build a team that tells you what you need to hear, not only what you want to year.

No 22: Swat the Busy Bee

I've got a new girl, and her name is Tom Tom. All happiness, all success comes from "Quadrant 2." Leadertonic: You'll make a more influential impression with the questions you ask than the facts you know.

No 21: Order it with Extra

Pizza is broad shoulder soul food. Your host completely forgot about career vision on vacation. All that aside - what do you like... Leadertonic: With one minor exception, the entire world is made up of other people - deal with it (reference discussed in podcast).

No 20: SHHHH! I’m Learning to Listen!

If only there was a way to indicate that this task is impossible... If you take 'needing to be a better listener' hard - that's good. You can only listen to one person at a time - so try to.

No 19: Class is in.

"No guy magazines." In the game of rocks paper scissors - class beats trash. Leadertonic: Have unprotected influence.

No 18: Five is Four with Attitude

Sorry, this one got a little long. Wait, it's a podcast - you can listen one minute a day if you want (therapeutic dose is five minutes a day). Oh my, I'm the middle child caller. Hitting level five starts at level one. Leadertonic: Same meaning, half as many words.
