#203 – How Sri Chellappa’s Engagedly Stands Out in a Crowded Market
How can you stand out in the incredibly crowded markets of today? Seven years ago, Sri Chellappa understood the Human resources area needed more than administrative strategies. For an area as crowded as this, he thought it was necessary to redefine the HR processes and develop a strategy that would help managers streamline HR processes and harness employee potential. So, he did. Sri is the President and Co-Founder of Engagedly, an INC 5000 company. With his team, strategy management software redefines performance management, employee engagement, and development to enable organizations to build highly engaged and high-performance teams. He has over 20 years of leading organizations in technology and consulting in the United States, is a Forbes contributor, a Top 50 Tech visionary, and is recognized as a Titan 100 in the St. Louis business district. The story of how Sri and his team broke into the crowded HR market is worthwhile. Don’t miss the advice he gives on how to develop best practices for your team.

#202 – Shea Gerhardt Beats Apple At Their Own Game

#202 – Shea Gerhardt Beats Apple At Their Own Game
On the slopes of Colorado, Shea Gerhardt’s ears hurt from wearing typical earbuds for hours.  Ouch!  There has to be a better way…  and Buderflys research began. But why leave two decades as a high-paid executive in the mobile, gaming, and music industries?  Shea had worked with Universal, Sony, EMI, and Warner Bros., as well as VZW, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Vodafone. The reason is other earbud designs are flawed.  The human ear canal moves as we move, and thus hard plastic, inflexible Apple EarPod / AirPod-like designs not only fall out, they can hurt when wore for long periods of time.   But how can Shea and her team develop a clear and focused path to cut through the noise of a crowded market overpopulated with stale product designs?  How can they flip it so better, user-centric products are king even though massive corporate conglomerates and Chinese knockoffs saturate the market?  Shea believes in doing things right.  She couldn’t standby and just accept the status quo when better is possible.  It took four years of innovation, creativity, and grit for her team to perfect the design of high-end, premium-sounding Buderflys made with a proprietary, innovative squishy material that flexes with the ear’s movement as we talk, chew, and exercise.  You can wear Buderflys for hours as you enjoy a crisp and clear sound.  (David checked:  The reviews on the microphone are positive too!) Join this podcast to hear Shea’s candid story.  It’s fun, inspiring, and insightful.  Who knows?  Maybe Shea’s insights might help you create the next Goliath-killer product or service.  Spotify: Apple Podcasts: Google Podcasts: Manage2Win: ------- This Manage 2 Win Podcast episode is brought to you by Habitly.  I (David) review Habitly best practices regularly, and teach these essential people skills to clients weekly.  This advice has changed my life, and made millions for our clients.

#201 – Gustavo Razzetti Explains Your Culture Design Canvas
What if your company’s culture was not haphazard, but a beautiful tapestry masterfully designed to engage each individual based on their individual dreams, skills, behaviors, and experiences? For more than 20 years, Gustavo Razzetti of Fearless Culture has helped teams do the best work of their lives.  Most organizations don’t lack ideas, talent, or resources.  Instead, leaders lack a conducive culture where employees are encouraged to collaborate, take initiative and experiment beyond perceived limitations. In this episode, Gustavo walks us through his Culture Design Canvas, a framework to map, assess, and design your culture.  He has written four books on culture change, including his latest that was released earlier this year, Remote Not Distant: Design a Company Culture That Will Help You Thrive in a Hybrid Workplace.  Join this conversation to see if Gustavo’s creative approach can help your company.

#200 – Ari Weinzweig Uses Humility And Anarchy to Make Zingerman’s #1
How can humility and anarchy build a business? Ari Weinzweig teaches anarchy is not being at war or demanding a lack of structure.  “Ari’s Anarchy” (David’s term) involves fully connecting with your employees to create and evolve your company.   Ari’s Anarchy replaces a focus on hierarchy with humble recognition of the value each member brings to your company.  His approach honors everybody as a unique individual, welcomes what you learn from them, and believes there is potential in everybody. Does that sound too touchy-feely for you?  Too bad if it does, because you cannot argue with Ari’s results.  He’s an overcomer. Ari is CEO and co-founding partner of Zingerman's Community of Businesses a collection of Zingerman’s businesses.  He and his partner started as a 1,300 retail delicatessen.  Now their businesses are approaching $75 million in revenue, each with its own food specialty, all located in the Ann Arbor area.  Each business group strives to make the shopping, taste, and relational experience of Zingerman’s the most flavorful and enjoyable interactions of your day. C’mon, couldn’t your business use a little anarchy to shake things up and rocket past your next growth objective?  Tune-in to get a glimpse of Ari’s mastery.

Work smarter, not harder.  Are you ready for this challenge? Jon Darbyshire believes a shared vision of “helping teams be more productive by working smarter” enriches culture, promotes accountability, and empowers collaboration through automation.   In 2021, Jon Darbyshire and his team launched SmartSuite, a work management platform that manages any process, from any industry, on one platform.  This podcast is different for David, our host, because he chose to ask questions about SmartSuite to confirm how well it aligns with his own best practices.  This is not a product demo or pitch.  The conversation weaves Jon’s experience with David 50 years in business.  Although the framework of the conversation is SmartSuite, Jon and David discuss many of the best practices they have learned through their decades of experience and hundreds of companies they have helped. Jon has invested in over 400 startups, and it has been a learning process.  David has advised over 1,000 organizations through his consulting and workshops.  What makes one startup overcome its challenges whereas another stumbles or fails?  Prior to SmartSuite, Jon ran the Archer Foundation. The mission of the foundation is to advance entrepreneurial achievement, extend the reach of community service programs, and foster educational opportunities for students and single mothers.  Prior to that, he was CEO & Founder of Archer Technologies, and held leadership positions at Ernst Young and Price Waterhouse.

#195 – The “X Factor” of EQ and Agile Leadership with Chuck Mollor
Many leaders want employees who are a good cultural fit for their company, but few take the time to establish a culture of psychological safety for employees. Chuck Mollor emphasizes the importance of emotional intelligence in leadership so you can have proactive employees who fully embrace your culture, and you provide them the psychological safety they need to thrive in your organization. Chuck is a recognized expert in leadership effectiveness.  He has authored a best-selling book on Amazon titled, The Rise of The Agile Leader: Can You Make the Shift?  He trains companies how psychological safety is a competitive advantage that can maximize employee engagement and innovation. Where did Chuck gain his EQ and realize an X-Factor to hyper-growth? It started back in 1999, when Chuck received feedback from people he was leading.  He tells us how those harsh comments allowed him to see his "blind spots" in leadership, which at the time were not pleasant to learn.  However, his courage in embracing the perspective of others transformed him into a better leader.  This “new Chuck Mollor” then became the company's next CEO and he grew the company substantially. In this episode, Chuck explains how to put relationships first, while still delivering excellence as a rapidly growing organization.  He describes how his best practices have helped leaders just like you advance to their “next level.”  How?  By simplifying the complexities of modern leadership and creating a culture reflective of your organization’s purpose, vision, and values. Chuck (Charlie) is the founder and CEO of MCG Partners, a consulting firm specializing in leadership and talent optimization.  For over 30 years, he has helped clients align business and people strategy for maximum results.  As a recognized expert in leadership effectiveness, Chuck specializes in coaching and advising senior executives and leadership teams through times of rapid-growth, M&A, and change.

#193 - After 28 Years at HP, Tom Hardison Hit a Wall. Learn How He Recovered
“It took me 28 years to realize that I needed to change my life, that my leadership skills were no longer enough,” Tom Hardison explained to our audience. His role at Hewlett Packard had changed and his youngest son had decided to drop out of school.  His very fulfilling life and successful career had diverted onto a rocky road with difficult to navigate potholes.  Things were not working as easily as before.  Tom knew he must make changes, but where?  One of the first mistakes he identified was the fact he was not really listening to his son or his wife, and fully considering what they had to say.  To breakthrough his challenges required a new set of leadership skills that would allow him to resolve new, or previously overlooked, complexities in his life.  This was true even though as an engineer, he had very strong analytical and problem-solving skills. But how to change? Tom was caught in a system of processing information and making decisions that blocked him from receiving and evaluating critical data, and fully engaging with people whom he cared most about -  personally and professionally.  This significantly limited his ability to resolve problems.  One symptom he identified was that when he was stuck, he made his strengths into "giants" that got in the way of everything he tried to do.  For instance, he was driver, but under this intense pressure, he drove his people too hard.  This hurt his relationships with others and the stress he caused limited their ability to resolve issues. To get unstuck, he decided to try watching and listening more, and asking more questions.  This led Tom to develop a new system of leadership to overcome the stressful challenges facing him.  He calls this approach, generative leadership.  Are you stuck?  Could you be less stressed?  Do any members of your leadership team struggle in these areas?  If so, join us to hear Tom’s story and solution.  Spotify Apple Podcasts Google Podcasts Manage2Win ------- This Manage 2 Win Podcast episode is brought to you by Habitly.  I (David) review Habitly best practices regularly, and teach these essential people skills to clients weekly.  This advice has changed my life, and made millions for our clients.

#192 – Are You Ready to “Have It All”? - Vena Sterling can Help
We have been told that, "Your personal life stays at home."  But seasoned leaders know this is fable, not fact.  For some, this lesson is learned when their personal lives (including our past traumas) directly, but unconsciously affect their workflow as entrepreneurs.  Have you seen someone’s personal habits spillover into the workplace, or experienced it yourself?  For instance:  Have you ever felt guilty for eating your lunch rather than just working nonstop?   Do you struggle to lead a team because you want to avoid confrontation, or it is more comfortable to make assumptions rather than communicate more and get ahead of your people and lead?   In this episode with Vena Sterling, we talk about how she has discovered the importance of recognizing these factors and working on them.  Vena explains life doesn't get better just by becoming a great entrepreneur, it vastly improves when you learn to develop the skills that give you freedom.  Vena learned her lessons the hard way.  She was very successful as a real estate attorney for big commercial firms in New York and Florida.  But she had to stop when her over-the-top work ethic led to burnout.  Only then did she learn the power of teamwork, and choose to dedicate her career to helping women leaders avoid her prior bad habits.  Vena Sterling is an ICF-certified executive coach and strategic advisor who empowers entrepreneurs to build high-performing teams that create more wealth, legacy and freedom. She specializes in working with women founders and CEOs who are committed to achieving their version of having it all.   Vena has 20+ years of experience in the legal, corporate, and higher-education sectors with a focus on wellness, culture transformation, and leading remote and hybrid teams.  Prior to pursuing her calling as a coach and consultant, Vena graduated from the University of Pennsylvania Law School, and practiced commercial real estate law with large firms in New York and South Florida.   Listen in to learn how to create strategies to avoid burnout and maximize how your team is working together!   Spotify  Apple Podcasts  Google Podcasts  Manage2Win    -------   This Manage 2 Win Podcast episode is brought to you by Habitly.  I (David) review Habitly best practices regularly, and teach these essential people skills to clients weekly.  This advice has changed my life, and made millions for our clients.  I started developing Habitly content in 2004.  Habitly’s powerful best practices have now been taught to thousands of people worldwide.  For instance, you can learn how to Create time in your day;  Get more from meetings;  Stay calm;  Achieve significant targets;  and Become a great leader.  Simply study and apply the expert knowledge provided in Habitly courses and micro-learning episodes.   Whether you’re just out of college, or someone with over 20 years work experience, learn the habits of highly successful people on Habitly.    Test drive Habitly for 7 days on us!  This includes full access to the entire Habitly knowledgebase – www.habitly.com.
