Waterline Article #18: Be Vulnerable, but More Importantly... Be Relatable
This episode will help you accelerate trust while others seem to throw it away at every turn. If you have trouble with vulnerability, substitute relatability. People follow leaders they can relate to. This comes from the invisible truth that we are all creatures of struggle. It comes down to psychological safety, connection, and shared vision. When seeking vulnerability, ask yourself, “Am I relatable to my employees right now?” Often, we find our greatest relatability to the other party in our struggles and authentic stories that help them relate to your perspective. Or better yet, our questions that help them see themselves as the hero in the story. this is the secret sauce to connecting in low-trust times. CONTEXT ON THIS SERIES In 1917, T.E. Lawrence, who you might know as Lawrence of Arabia overthrew the Ottoman Turks in WWI in modern-day Iraq and Syria, using strategic human connections at the local level. He did so by going into tribal environments and creating a level of trust that unified various tribes around one thing that they could all agree on through storytelling of ‘what could be.’ He wanted to help others who followed behind him do the same so he wrote The 27 Articles to share with them. Scott has taken these Lawrencian skills and adapted them to the Rooftop Leadership methodology and in this series will share the 27 Waterline Articles for the Rooftop Leader with you so that you are better equipped to lead through the disengagement, distrust, and distraction brought on by prolonged isolation, low trust, and uncertainty. If you’ll lean into these and integrate them into your life and business, you will be more attuned to the people you lead and be able to look at human behavior in a new way that allows you to lead at a higher level.  You can read the original 27 Articles by T.E.

Deja Vu All Over Again: Ahmad Massoud, Congressman Mike Waltz and Legend
Did we learn anything from 9-11-2001? More importantly, did we learn anything from the events leading up to 9-11-2001?For months, prior to the attacks, the leader of the Afghan Resistance Movement, Ahmad Shah Massoud tried over and over again to warn the U.S. and the West of an impending attack by al Qa’ida. His warnings were ignored as he continued his fight against them and the Taliban with almost no support from the U.S.Just days before the worst attack on our homeland, Massoud was killed by suicide bombers dispatched by bin Laden. AQ knew we would come to Massoud after the attack attempting to partner since we had no other allies in the country.After the botched Afghan Withdrawal, over 27 violent extremist organizations have flooded back into the country, training on the former Coalition Bases, under the tolerant protection of the Taliban, and in flagrant violation of the International Doha Agreement.Ahmad Massoud, the son of the Lion of the Panshir, continues the fight. For the first time he appears on a public broadcast with a U.S. elected official, Green Beret Congressman Mike Waltz. They are joined by the Afghan-American, former Army NCO - Legend - who has returned to Afghanistan multiple times to help evacuate at-risk Afghans and American Citizens.The topics in this podcast will blow your mind. What’s happening in that terrorist playground is beyond the pale.Will we learn from our past? Do we even care? Join us and decide for yourself.As the wise Yogi Bera exclaimed, "It’s Deja Vu all over again." Join Rooftop Nation! Website: https://www.rooftopleadership.com/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ScottMannAuthorInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/scottmannauthorLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/rooftop-leadershipTwitter: https://twitter.com/RooftopLeaderYoutube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYOQ7CDJ6uSaGvmfxYC_skQ

Waterline Article #14: Relationships are Social Currency
This waterline article is a mindset - we need to move away from the transactional driven approach and start thinking about relationships as the asset. When you go for the short-term transaction, you leave so much on the table. When you focus on the relationship, you not only create and build a new one but investing that time, in the beginning, gives you the opportunity to leverage it in the future. CONTEXT ON THIS SERIESIn 1917, T.E.
