Play Your Position with Mary Lou Kayser

Love is missing from the workplace. That’s what today’s PYP MVP believes. “If you can satisfy people’s emotional needs, you can produce business results you never thought possible,” says Cort Dial. He would know. Cort has been working as an executive coach for several decades and has seen every facet of human behavior you could imagine. His work has taken him to some of the toughest places on earth, from oil rigs off the coast of Texas to the deserts of the Middle East and everything in between. In fact, over the last 30 years in a variety of environments ranging from corporate skyscrapers to South American jungles, he has honed his signature method of leadership development called All-In Performance Transformation. With it, he trains and certifies business executives and rising leaders at his Heretics to Heroes Leadership Mastery Summits held throughout the year in Austin, Texas. Despite all the advances in technology we’ve experienced over the last ten years, Cort is adamant that we human beings are still the same: everyone just wants to feel a sense of belonging. Everyone wants to play a big game. Everyone wants to make a contribution in one fashion or another. “The world is lacking great leadership,” he says. But has has faith that, with a combination of the right training, some time and patience, things can change for the better. “I’m really good at asking the tough questions no one else is willing to ask,” Cort says. He believes that asking the hard questions is one of the keys to developing great leaders and that it takes a special form of leader to inspire a performance transformation within organizations. Cort calls this new breed of 21st-century hero the All-In™ Leader. He explores the roots and results of his unique All-In Leadership philosophy in his Amazon Top 10 book, Heretics to Heroes: A Memoir on Modern Leadership, named the Best Business Book of 2016 by Canada’s Globe and Mail. Cort lives in Austin, Texas with his wife and best friend Julie of more than 38 years. He has a son and a daughter and two grandsons named Max and Jake. Oh, and he’s a big Texas Longhorns fan. While it’s been a tough road for the Longhorns recently, they’re having a decent season this year. “As long as we beat Oklahoma, us fans are okay,” he chuckles.
