Listener Favorites | Bob Gower: Inside the Psychology of Cults

The Unmistakable Creative Podcast

In classic cult psychology or cult literature, there’s really two characteristics to a cult. First is that it’s ideologically intense and of course that can describe a lot of organizations. Everything from say something like the Landmark forum to the United States of America. We have an ideology that sits behind the organization. In order to be a part of the US government you have to adopt a certain kind of ideology. There’s this idea that we have an ideology. And cults for that reason pray on people like myself who really want to make the world a better place, want to change the world or feel dissatisfied in some way. There can be political cults. There are quite a few of those out there. There can be spiritual cults. There can be even commercial cults. Real estate is apparently a really common place right now where you find people who are learning how to flip houses and do all this stuff. And they began to develop these really intense ideology around how they approach the world and how they see the world. – Bob GowerCommit ActionCommit Action pairs you with a dedicated coach to act as your second brain, helping you to break down big goals, prioritize, and execute consistently.A lot of their reviews on TrustPilot describe Commit Action as literally life changing.As an Unmistakable Creative listener you’ll get $100 off your first month of coaching when you use creative100 at checkout.So if you want to become a productivity powerhouse then go to www.CommitAction.com and give it a try.Listener TribeWe have our own private social network for listeners of the Unmistakable Creative podcast.

256: Saner Arguments—Discourse vs. Debate with Bob Gower

Pivot with Jenny Blake

When discussing fraught, divisive, or high-stakes issues it's so easy to get defensive, triggered, and hurt—sometimes even doing irreparable damage to relationships we hold dear. Communications pro Bob Gower returns to Pivot to help us understand something crucial before we engage in our next argument: is this discourse or a debate?He outlines the difference between the two in his fantastic piece, Rules of Engagement: 5 Steps to Better Arguments: "In discourse, the goal is to eventually align. Debate is discourse's more flamboyant cousin where people with opposing views intend to remain that way at the end of the conversation.”In this wandering conversational stroll, we explore what it means to be a “good person,” when "agree to disagree" does and doesn't work, intent versus impact, when not to "poke the bear," releasing the urge to have an opinion on everything (or enter into an argument with every person in the first place), why Bob shut-down several of his social media profiles, and how he boils this all down into his day-to-day practices and intentions.As longtime listeners know well by now, awkward is the name of the game for subjects as tricky as these! For intrepid listeners, our hope is that by hearing us work through (in real-time) some of these more challenging aspects of tough conversations, it will give you a chance to explore where you stand and what approach you want to take—knowing there isn't always just one "right" answer.Resources Mentioned:Bob’s website, LinkedIn, InstagramBob's books: Radical Alignment: How to Have Game-Changing Conversations That Will Transform Your Business and Your Life and Agile Business: A Leader’s Guide to Harnessing ComplexityArticles: Rules of Engagement: 5 Steps to Better Arguments, How to Be Wrong Like a Man, From Sex Cult to C-SuitePodcast: ConspiritualityBook: Descartes' Error: Emotion, Reason, and the Human BrainReddit: Late Stage CapitalismRelated Pivot Podcasts: 204: Radical Alignment: Getting to Hell Yes with Alex & Bob, 240: The Beauty of Conflict with CrisMarie Campbell and Susan Clarke, 148: Penney & Jenny Show—Pivoting From Toxic Situations Toward Self-Entertainment❤️ Enjoying the show?
