Rank #1: #078: 5 Steps to Avoid Investing in the Wrong People

Podcast cover
Read more

What do you do when you have a customer you just can’t seem to satisfy? Or a team member who seems resistant to coaching? What about someone in a personal relationship who seems to suck the life out of you? 

Sometimes it seems like you’re investing all your energy in the wrong people. What can you do about it? 

Good leaders develop people. The problem is that not all employees or customers are created equal. Some can fail to develop despite hours of time and energy. It’s maddening to pour your resources into a person who provides no return on the investment. 

But there’s a better way. 

We’ve identified five steps to ensure that you’re not wasting resources on the wrong people. We can help you multiply your effectiveness by identifying and investing in the people who really want to grow and improve.  

Finally, you can escape from life-draining clients, customers, and relationships and discover the freedom to work with people who energize you. 

Does it sound callous to talk about ending unproductive relationships? It’s not, and we prove it inside this episode. Let us help you get your energy back so you can spend it where it really counts!

This episode of Lead to Win is brought to you by The LeaderScore Assessment, a simple tool to evaluate the health of your leadership. Find out more at leadto.win/leaderscore.

Rank #2: #033: 4 Rituals That Make You Super Productive (Encore)

Podcast cover
Read more

We all want to be more productive. But you know how it goes—a little late getting started, a quick task you just remembered, and then it’s non-stop interruptions all day long. Where does the day go? 

Trust us when we say we’ve been there. But we finally learned a simple hack to start the day right and maintain focus all day long. 

The secret is a set of four daily rituals—or routines—that get your started right every morning and, every evening, set you up for success the next day. 

Don’t panic! When we say “rituals” we’re really talking about daily routines. You could also call them “stacked habits.” It’s a way of batching all the pesky (and some really important) things that could become disruptions as the day moves along. 

Put these rituals to work for you, and you’ll break free from that feeling of being always a little behind. You’ll replace that with a feeling of calm and control because you know you’re fully prepared for each day.

Inside this episode

  • What a “ritual” is (and isn’t).
  • Scientific reasons why habits work for you.
  • A simple formula for starting a new habit.
  • Three benefits of installing daily rituals.
  • The 9 elements of Michael’s morning ritual.
  • How Megan adapted her morning ritual to having young children. 
  • Megan’s current morning ritual 
  • They key question that makes for a great ritual.
  • Why it’s vital to estimate the time needed for each ritual. 
  • How a startup ritual declutters your day.
  • Elements of a solid startup routine.
  • The very best way to avoid bringing work home each day. 
  • A simple hack to protect the time for your morning and evening routines. 
  • The best way to ensure that you leave the office on time. 
  • How timing evening routine on time sets you up for success the next day.
  • How to get started with creating your daily rituals.

Rank #6: #067: Destroy Distractions with These 9 Focus-Boosting Strategies

Podcast cover
Read more

As business owners, we’ve learned that we can’t do our best work sandwiched between meetings and phone calls. We need focused time for strategizing, writing, and working out difficult problems. You probably do too.

But how many times do you get distracted in a typical day? Ten? Fifty? A hundred? Research indicates that the average worker is distracted once every three minutes. We’re swimming upstream against a flood of emails, notifications, texts, and drop-in visitors. You just can’t be productive in that environment.

The good news is that regaining your focus is easier than you think. Just a few simple practices can slam the door on distractions and interruptions and give you the focused time you need for high-leverage work. I’m talking about things you can start doing right now, today.

Here’s happening in this episode—

  • You’ll get practical tips for getting in the “alone zone” so you’re not interrupted.
  • You’ll learn about “meeting free Thursdays” and how that’s boosted our business.
  • You’ll learn how to fight fire with fire, using technology to block distractions.
  • You’ll learn what types of food are scientifically proven to increase mental acuity.
  • You’ll see the connection between listening to music and problem solving, backed by solid research.
  • You’ll hear the best method for ensuring that you take frequent breaks to keep your mind fresh.
  • You’ll learn how the one tool you use every single day can become your firewall against unwanted meetings and visitors.

Plus, our producers surprised us a pop quiz about our own favorite productivity hacks. It was a ton of fun!

After you listen, we hope you’ll choose at least one or two of these simple hacks and start using them today. You’ll be amazed at how it will boost your productivity.

Rank #15: #054: The 3x3 Goal Achievement Strategy (Encore)

Podcast cover
Read more

As a leader, you probably have a huge goal in mind. It’s the heartbeat of your ambition, the reason you get out of bed in the morning. Chances are good that you’ve thought about it long and hard, and you may even have a timetable and specific objectives for reaching it. 

The problem is that distractions, interruptions, and “business as usual” cause us to loose sight of our goals. Before long, another month, another quarter, maybe even another year has gone by with no progress. It’s disheartening. We know. We’ve been there. 

But there’s hope!

Over the years, we’ve developed a killer strategy to ensure you keep making progress on your goals. And it works! In this episode, we’ll give you the simple system we call the 3x3 Goal Achievement Strategy.

If you’re tired of watching your biggest goals slip through your fingers while you’re busy putting out brush fires, this episode is for you! Here’s the system that will give you laser focus on the things that matter most every day.

Here’s what’s coming inside the episode:

  • True-life story of what happens when you have goals but don’t implement them.
  • What makes goal achievement so much harder than goal setting.
  • The right number of goals to set annually—and quarterly.
  • How limiting your focus multiplies your achievement.
  • How we select our own Big 3 Goals for each quarter.
  • The difference between a goal and a project.
  • How to translate quarterly goals in to weekly achievements.
  • How to use the Eisenhower Matrix to pare down your to-do list.
  • Why looking back periodically can help you make progress in the future.
  • A simple hack to make time for imporant-but-not-urgent items.
  • The secret reward you get for focusing on only three daily tasks.
  • How your choice of daily actions drives progress on your annual.
  • Examples of our daily to-do list.
  • The difference between a task and a project (and why it matters).
  • The well-known business principle that supports choosing just three daily actions.
  • How to harness the power of alignment for goal achievement.
  • Why we make no distinction between personal and professional goals and tasks.
  • Two different strategies for selecting daily tasks on weekends.

Once you’ve heard this episode, don’t be intimidated by the process of narrowing your focus. Just try it! If this strategy doesn’t work for you, that’s totally fine. But we think it’ll be a game changer. You’ll start seeing daily progress on your most important goals.

Rank #18: #070: 7 Steps to Thinking Big

Podcast cover
Read more

Do you have a really big dream or far-out goal that you’ve never told anybody about? We’ll bet you do because we’ve had them too. What’s sad is that most of those dreams  get buried under a huge mound of fear and insecurity.

It doesn’t have to be that way!

We’ve felt that same fear of acting on our deepest desires. And we’ve learned from experience that when you do take the risk of sharing your dream, people usually tell you “get real” or “be practical.” It’s discouraging. After a while, it’s just easier to play it safe.

Here’s the thing: nothing good in our lives has come from thinking small. All the breakthroughs—every single one—have come as a result of dreaming big and nurturing those dreams to reality.

Thinking big is a skill, just like anything else. You can train yourself to it, and we’ll show you how. I (Megan) had to learn that lesson to overcome my lifelong fear of public speaking. To do that, I had to envision a bigger future for myself. In this episode, I share that journey and how it transformed my life and leadership.

We’re excited about this message because we know it will be a turning point for a lot of people, maybe you.

This episode is brought to you by the Full-Focus Planner. Pre-order in the Executive, Classic, and Bold lines.

Here’s the insight you get in this episode—

  • Learn why the biggest change you need is in your mindset, not your behavior.
  • Identify the primary emotion that keeps us from dreaming big.
  • Recognize the predictable process that causes you to give up on big ideas.
  • Find out why writing down your dreams nearly guarantees they’ll be realized.
  • Understand the difference between a dream and a goal, and why both matter.
  • Discover the most vulnerable stage in thinking big, and learn how to ensure your dream doesn’t die here.
  • Hear the magic question that moves you from dreaming to doing.
  • See why most big dreams are not achieved. (Hint: It’s not lack of ability.)

Seriously, this is one of the most exciting episodes we’ve produced. We hope it’ll inspire you to dig deep, think back, and recover the big ambition you’ve been too afraid to voice. We know you can do it!
