Unlocking Leadership

THE MUSIC OF LEADERSHIP

What is leadership? What does a leader look like? Those are loaded questions. There will be as many answers as there are people who read this.

Today’s guest, Yigal Adato, is a passionate, committed leader who helps business people discover and step into their own authentic leadership.

He earned the right to teach leadership by walking his own talk, by holding himself accountable to high standards fro living, and by taking 100% responsibility for his actions and his results.

His journey is fascinating. His core passion is music. He sings and performs on stage, and he even had his own rock group, F.o.N. They opened Woodstock ’99 on the Emerging Artist Stage. His love of music and theatrical performance enrich his public speaking and leadership training today.

You’ll relate to his story about overcoming extreme negative self talk when he was a broke musician, then reinventing himself as an emerging entrepreneur.

You will learn one of the most original definitions of leadership from Yigal. It may not be what you think. He’ll inspire you with his vision of a true leader as a full healthy human being. A person who has enriching relationships, self respect, and the ability to contribute to the world as well as create wealth.

Yigal Adato is a pleasure to listen to, not only for his wisdom and knowledge, but for his ability to engage you with entertaining stories.

Claim Your Worth

CLAIM YOUR WORTH

What is an expert, and what is expertise? I’m sure there are as many answers to this question as there are people who hear it.

David C. Baker is an expert on expertise. He has thought long and hard about what makes someone an expert, and he illuminates the subject with precision, clarity and depth in his book, “The Business of Expertise.”

If you are an entrepreneur who wants to take your business to new heights, you’ll gain insight on how to do it from my interview with David, today’s guest.

The power and value of David’s knowledge and his view of expertise extend way beyond business. They will enrich people who who want to deepen and strengthen their sense of self worth.

A successful expert masters a set of skills and a body of knowledge. They will never be felt by the people who need them if the expert lacks confidence and self worth.

A surefire sign of wavering self worth is the inability to say no to prospective clients who are not a good fit for your business.

Your ability and willingness to say no to new clients and customers, to requests for discounts, to lowering your standards that are beyond a prospect’s  comfort zone will ensure the integrity of your business and elevate its perceived value.

If you have any difficulty saying no in life and business, you deserve to listen to this interview with David C. Baker.

David also offers a refreshing view of intelligence. He equates intelligence with pattern matching. People who quickly perceive patterns are more likely to embrace systems that help businesses to expand and thrive.

Listen to David and learn strong positioning secrets; learn how to step into your power and easily say, “I’m smart, and I know it,” without feeling uncomfortable or arrogant.

Another great reason to listen to this interview is to spend time with a multifaceted man who has humble beginnings and an exciting sense of adventure.

Murder Story

MURDER STORY

There are schools, and there are schools. Some are highly respected by society. They offer book learning, a competitive grading system, and a fast track to the top of the social ladder.

Some of these schools  have have higher prestige, status, and celebrity than others. A diploma or degree  from one of these institutions can open many doors that lead to respect, social acceptance, and wealth.

The street can also serve as a school. So can a prison. Your education in these hard knuckle schools will not earn you society’s blessings or certificates that open doors. But they can definitley give you a priceless education.

They can teach you survival and a profound understanding of human psychology,  They can unleash creativity. They can cultivate compassion; They can offer you hard won lessons of  great wisdom.

These schools can destroy you. If they don’t, they can forge integrity and strength of character and prepare you to enrich the world with your unique brand of authenticity and contribution.

Will Latif Little forged his character and special gifts on the streets of Philadelphia and in Holmesburg Prison, a terrifying penitentiary known as the Terradome to its inmates.

Naked Truth

 

NAKED TRUTH

Men and women are at war. I’m talking about the super charged battle of the sexes spearheaded by the Harvey Weinstein scandal.

The lines are drawn, and each day the genders become more polarized.

Many women are stepping forward and expressing their pent up rage. This podcast does not takes sides.

Today’s guest is a smart, independent, powerful woman. Her name is Sonya Cote. She was a proud professional stripper. She is a jazz singer, an actress, an author, and a mom.

Sonya has every justification to hate men. She was brutally abused at the age of two. She was sexually assaulted as an infant by a neighbor who took advantage of her parents’ trust.

She even wound up living on the same street as her assailant as an adult. She did not seek revenge or punishment. She forgave and moved on with her life.

I don’t know that I would have done the same in her place. Meeting her and talking with her filled me with admiration and respect.

You will find her story inspiring, uplifting, and empowering.

You are in for a treat when you listen to this funny, intelligent, warm, unique woman reveal the details of her life journey.

I am proud to call Sonya Cote my friend.
