Play Your Position with Mary Lou Kayser

Do you remember the first time you sat down to use the Internet? 

I do. I was teaching high school English at the time. It was the mid-90s and I already knew my students knew more about this wild thing than I or any of my colleagues did because I’d seen groups of them gathered around clunky laptops on the floor gawking at their screens. A palpable buzz filled the air. We all knew things were going to be different from now on. We just didn’t know how different things would be. 

What didn’t happen that day was getting a pamphlet, playbook, or sheet of paper with stick figure drawings on it walking me through how this thing works.

It came with no operating instructions.

Still doesn’t. Not in any organized way, anyway.

In today's episode, I explore a leadership question that has no simple answser, but needs to be asked again and again:

How do we develop the capacity for living simultaneously in two worlds -- the virtual world (where seemingly anything goes) and the natural world (where universal laws rule the roost) so that our lives are rich, healthy, and satisfying without destroying the planet or each other?

Thanks for joining me and let me know your thoughts about the show!

These days, there’s a ton of talk about finding your purpose and then living it. 

For many, finding your purpose is The Holy Grail of being human. 

The challenge is, of course, life doesn’t always align in a perfect little sequence of bullet points leading us blissfully toward our why. When it comes to finding your purpose and doing what you’re here to do, discovering what that is will not necessarily be simple -- or immediately apparent.

Trust has never been more important and yet... these days, trust in leadership has eroded significantly. From employees to citizens, too many of us have become jaded about what people in positions of leadership are -- or aren't -- doing. Today's guest, John Robertson, is determined to turn that trend around so trust is not only present, but fostered throughout teams and organizations.

John is the Founder and President of FORTLOG Services. John built his services with a focus on an encouragement-based approach, resolving root causes as opposed to treating crisis and transition in the workplace symptomatically, as is often the practice. A trusted thinking partner with 30+ years of assisting individuals and organizations manage all forms of crisis/change, John leverages a values-anchored ethos as a leadership development specialist, helping organizations and individuals to define the new norm and thrive.

Over the years, John has gained extensive and diverse experiences working with Indigenous peoples [First Nations], first responders, small-medium businesses, non-profits, churches, communities, municipalities, educational, health care, families, and EAPs. John’s qualifications include Conversational
IQTM, psychological health and safety advisor, ICF coach, Resilient Leadership, crisis intervention instructor, numerous psychometric tools, Certified Trauma Treatment Specialist (CTTS), Certified grief counsellor, and a Masters and Bachelors degrees.

What do you think you would do if you learned that your unborn child had a condition that almost guaranteed he wouldn't live beyond birth?

In today's episode, Ty Morgan shares his very personal leadership story which is unlike any I've heard in the eight years I've been podcasting. Ty's story is not only moving, but proof that faith exists and works in amazing ways when we choose it over mistrust and disbelief.

Faith has certainly been a central part of Ty's private and personal life. He is the Founder of Infinite Planning, where his goal is to educate and inspire individuals to take control of their financial lives through proper education and coaching methods. Ty also recently founded the nonprofit organization, Silent Guardian-Angels, Inc. something Ty never imagined he'd do but is beyond grateful he was guided to building it.

Seven months ago, my dad died.

 

And grief moved in.

 

Losing my dad is by far the most intense grief I’ve experienced. Nothing could have prepared me for it. No book or podcast or course could have taught me about what I would feel when grief came knocking at my door and moved in for I can’t possibly predict how long. 

 

Even as time passes and the initial sting subsides, grief is always lurking in the emotional shadows, ready to take center stage and leave me sobbing in a puddle of tears because I just saw a car commercial featuring cute golden retriever puppies which were dad’s favorite breed.

 

Granting ourselves the space -- and the grace -- to feel grief is more than half the battle. If we could learn how to talk about it without feeling ashamed or weak, think of how much better more of us would do in all facets of our lives. If we could add grieving to the collective cultural conversation, think of how much faster our country would heal.

John Mitchell teaches the “SCIENCE of SUCCESS" at the University of Texas, along with a 12 minute a day technique that typically doubles an entrepreneur’s income within a year. When John turned 50, he wasn’t as successful as he thought he should be. Then it came to him: find the top book in the world on SUCCESS and apply that book literally Word for Word to his life. That book is Think and Grow Rich, which has been read by over 100 million people. Once he did that, everything changed.

John has since gone on to develop his 12 minute a day technique which caused his income to start doubling. Within four years he was netting MID SEVEN FIGURES figures a year. Time Magazine even did a cover story on the science behind his 12 minute day technique.

John now teaches his methodology with the former Chancellor and President at the University of Texas where his technique is recognized as the “Top Application in the World” of the top book in the world on SUCCESS.

Today's guest Scott Drake helps leaders make great decisions about who they onboard along with how to guide high potentials through the leadership pipeline. Scott is a sought-after consultant and trainer who made every mistake when rising through the leadership ranks. After seeing emerging leaders on his teams repeating the same mistakes, he set out to find a simpler and faster way to grow leaders. When he couldn’t find a shortcut, he invented one. His 25-year career includes stops at Microsoft in Redmond, Washington and start-ups in Silicon Valley.

A few of the questions Scott addresses include:

How can someone accelerate their growth from a role player to a leader?

In today's episode, Benson Agbortogo and I talk about when he got the call to leadership and what answering that call has done for his life, along with having a few laughs about what it takes these days to build a successful business.

Benson is the creator of the Consistent Profit Tree System which helps business owners and entrepreneurs in the construction and service industry generate more profit while working fewer hours.

While living in his native African homeland, at age 13, Benson Agbortogo discovered the immense love of a wealthy God and embarked on a quest to eradicate poverty. Benson became a missionary pastor with the purpose of helping people dedicate their lives to God but noticed most people still struggled economically and lived in financial poverty.

The Lord urged Benson to seek to understand the timeless, proven, economic principles of creating wealth to help others experience financial abundance. He moved to the USA where he has earned both a B.S. in Business Management and an MBA. Since then, Benson has served business owners through his Kingdom-based consulting services. He has authored 4 books, including “The Business System That Never Fails.”

Today's guest, Paul Huszar, talks about why veterans are exceptional leaders in civilian life, with several stories that showcase this reality.

 

"If you value respect, showing up on time, and getting the job done right, you'll be hard-pressed to find anyone better than a veteran," he says.

 

This is one of the many reasons Paul founded his company, VetCor. He is the CEO of VetCor and Team VetCor, and a retired Army officer. Paul graduated from West Point and then served 23 years on active duty, including four combat tours in Iraq. He commanded a 1,000 Soldier and Airman Joint Task Force in 09-10 and last served as the Dean of the Army’s Engineer School. He retired and moved to Tampa in 2013 when he started VetCor and started franchising the concept in 2019. His passion is creating sustainable and meaningful employment opportunities, and now business ownership opportunities, for our Nation’s Heroes.

Developing the ability to improvise when things don't go according to plan alleviates needless angst and suffering. And let's face it -- the way the world is going today, we are needing to improvise constantly. Sometimes the best move to make is to drop back and punt.
