808: We’re All in This Together: Creating a Team Culture of High Performance, Trust, and Belonging, with Mike Robbins
Sales Enablement Podcast
Mike Robbins is a former professional baseball player, motivational speaker, and author of an interesting book titled, "We’re All in This Together: Creating a Team Culture of High Performance, Trust, and Belonging."Now here’s the thing about this book. As I was reading it, I kept thinking, well, this applies to sales and that applies to sales. In fact when you think about it, successfully working a complex deal selling to an enterprise with a lot of stakeholders involved, is, in fact, an exercise in team building. On this episode, Mike and I discuss his 4 pillars for team building. Unlike in most books about team building these lessons are not just for leaders. It’s really about what you can do as an individual to be part of team. How your contribution helps to build the culture of the team. We also dive deep into the need for authenticity and vulnerability in our communications._Arm your team with the tools they need to work from anywhere. Watch the video @ www.ringDNA.com/andy

Episode 342: Are we all in this together? With Mike Robbins
Make Some Noise with Andrea Owen
This week I am sharing my conversation with Mike Robbins. Mike Robbins is a speaker and author of five books, including, Bring Your Whole Self to Work and We're All in This Together. I had a bunch of questions ready to ask Mike about his newest book. But our conversation went in an entirely different direction. And for that, I am grateful.In this episode, Mike and I discussed the value and importance of talking about race, white privilege, and why being vulnerable is so important, now more than ever. Being vulnerable forces us to ask of others and of ourselves, “Can I trust you with my time, my space, and my voice?” The world is divided - vulnerability is just one way we can begin to open up to talk about and take action for social justice, equality, and civil change. In this episode you’ll hear: Mike’s idea and journey for his book, We’re All In This Together. When he realized we are not all in this together. Mike’s experience with understanding what white privilege means. Acknowledging how our conversation is an example of centering whiteness. One entry point to anti-racism can be helpful is if white people call forward other white people. The importance of being vulnerable. http://yourkickasslife.com/342
