If there is one truth in the world today...it is that when it comes to communication we are not doing very well. Let's be honest as problems increase, as we draw more verbal lines in the sand, the only solution that can solve the problem is more effective communication.  And yet communication with each other seems to be a greater challenge. We all know in our business and personal lives that poor communication leads to numerous problems. We want to believe that we are great when it comes to our communication...and yet...we often seem to miscommunicate.  But how often do we say things in the wrong way, want to prove that we are right, or maybe we hide ourselves from the conversation, rationalize with negativity, or not give our best effort in our communications with others. The fact is we all need to do better and we can do better...how? A Communication Book for Everyone Communication expert Michelle Gladieux joins this episode of A New Direction to help us "Communicate with Courage" and do it in a way that makes us more effective with others, create clarity, and face the fears and take the risks with courage to overcome our communication fears and challenges. Michelle' Gladieux's book "Communicate with Courage: Taking Risks to Overcome the Four Hidden Challenges" is an insightful look at the multi-faceted diamond of communication.  The book addresses many questions, such as: What kind of communicator are you really?  What do others think of you as a communicator?  How does your personality play a role in your communications? Of the four basic challenges of communication which one or ones do you struggle with most?  Are you "Hiding"?  Do you Define to be "Right"? Are you one who Rationalized to the "Negative"?  Perhaps you communicate to just be "Good Enough"?  Whatever your communication challenge Michelle Gladieux and Communicate with Courage gives you a clear path to overcoming fears and taking the risks that are critical to better business and personal relationships. Please reach out and thank the sponsors of A New Direction: EPIC Physical Therapy.  Whether you just had surgery, maybe you were injured, perhaps feeling like things are hurting and not just quite right, perhaps you just need some guidance to get in better shape, or you are an elite athlete getting yourself back into the game, the certified experts coupled with the latest state of the art equipment will help you get you where you want to be.  Professional Athletes and people like you and me choose Epic Physical Therapy for three reasons:  They know that they will get EPIC relief, EPIC recovery, and EPIC results.  That is EPIC Physical Therapy.  Head on over to www.EPICpt.com and learn more! and Linda Craft & Team, REALTORS, for more than 38 years they have helped thousands of people all over the world make a life transition.  Why do we say "life transition"?  That is because wherever you have lived you have experienced a transition in life.

Selling Is Not Easy, But It Can Be Easier From Your Comfort Zone When it comes to selling anything here is what we know.  First it can be a tremendously rewarding and lucrative career.  We also know that finding people who are good at selling is difficult, and finding great sales people is even harder.  Just look at these statistics on selling.  In one study they found that 55% of people earning a living in sales should be doing something else and 20-25% have what it takes to sell, but they should be selling something else. So what's missing? Why do have so many people have a difficult time in sales and selling? The answer may be they are completely out of alignment with themselves, the company they are selling for, the product that they are selling, and the audience they are selling to. In this episode of A New Direction Best Selling Author and Sales Team Expert Stacey Hall joins us show us how to be successful in sales by aligning with your core values, aligning with what you sell, and how to use social media to increase sales. This non-traditional view of selling from your comfort zone creates depth in relationships with your clients and leads to greater sales, higher satisfaction and greater success! Best Selling Book:  Selling From Your Comfort Zone Stacey Hall's best selling book is entitled Selling from Your Comfort Zone: The Power of Alignment Marketing the book is going to be a challenging read for those of you who believe in the old fashioned way of doing sales.  If you believe that in today's world that you can avoid the idea of "Know, Like, and Trust" when it comes to selling you will have missed the boat. The fact is that today's buyers, whether it is B2B or B2C are looking of those people who they can get to know, are likeable, and can build trusting loyal relationships.  The days of scripts, spammy, clever lines and foot in the door are over.  The fact is we sell to other humans.  Decisions are made by other humans.  That means whether you like it or not the decisions that are made are in fact made from a place of emotions, not a place of logic.  Hence it would serve us well when it comes to selling to make sure we understand who they are, where they are coming from and have build a solid foundation of a relationship.  Because it will be that emotional connection that will avoid objections and naturally lead to the sale...which is truly Selling from Your Comfort Zone. Please thank our sponsors of A New Direction!  We are so grateful for their financial support in helping the show grow and get to you.

Unlock Your Creativity One of the most desirable qualities in today's business world is creativity. Unfortunately in today's world for a variety of reasons creativity is not as common as we would like to believe. What about getting to the heart or should I say "core" of creativity? Is there a way we can tap into that reservoir of creativity that we all have, but we just don't know how to get there? Well in this episode of A New Direction Dr. Ronald Alexander helps you and I tap into our creativity lies deep within us that we have a difficulty tapping into. Let's be honest creativity is what great success, invention and innovation is built on, and who doesn't want some of that? Join us right here and get your creativity juices flowing! In this episode Dr. Alexander deals with the myths of creativity. More than likely you have heard of the many myths of creativity.  Like the creative person who looks like they are doing nothing and are hence lazy.  Dr. Alexander helps us understand that the naysayers are completely mistaken. Maybe you have heard of the myth that creatives are depressed or mentally unstable. What about the myth that our creativity reduces with age.  Well nothing could be further from the truth. Dr. Alexander's book Core Creativity: The Mindful Way to Unlock Your Creative Self is an insightful read that helps us understand that we all have creativity.  How we tap into it is what holds us back.  So much of our lack of creativity starts with our mindsets, such as Growth vs. Fixed, Open vs. Closed, and Promotion vs. prevention.  Core Creativity also digs into how our loss and trauma can create blocks in our creativity that can cause us to not be as creative as we could be. One of the most interesting ideas that Dr. Alexander shares with us, it the idea that if we want to be more creative that we need to slow down.  We need to move on from our past, say good-bye to loss, and hello to opportunities that are in front of us.  Always keeping in mind that we need to focus on the solutions...not the problem. Finally Dr. Alexander analyzes the habits of highly creative individuals.  Starting with reframing the way we look at mistakes.  Because in reality they are really not mistakes, but as the movie industry describes that are "missed takes" and we get to have a "do over".  He also looks at the role perseverance and patience plays in our creativity.  A powerful book and a powerful show!

Discover Your Leadership Style There are thousands of books when it comes to leadership.  Most of the speak about specific attributes of leaders and leadership.  There are many assessments you can take in regard to personality and how it relates to leadership.  But thing that the literature particularly avoids is "leadership style".  When I ask you about your leadership style, what the first thing that comes to mind?  Is it dictator, hands off, collaborative, something else. In this episode of A New Direction we dive into leadership style.  And when it comes to leadership style Robert Jordan and Olivia Wagner have conducted research with thousands of leaders to help define for leadership styles that we have a preference toward.  Perhaps you have a leadership style of being a "Fixer".  Or maybe you have a leadership style of being an "Artist".  Maybe a "Builder" or a "Strategist".  The fact is we all have a preference towards a leadership style, but we may not recognize it.  In this episode Robert Jordan, helps you to narrow down what your leadership style is and what organizations you best fit in, and when it is time to perhaps get out. Right Leader, Right Time: Discover Your Leadership Style for a Winning Career and Company Robert Jordan & Olivia Wagner's book Right Leader, Right Time: Discover Your Leadership Style for a Winning Career and Company is incredibly insightful.  In fact, from this readers perspective it was the first time I felt that someone understood my  leadership style and that I was not being crazy or weird.  The book is an eye opener for those who wonder why they may jump from leadership postition to leadership position.  It can give you some closer as to why you get an andrenaline rush over some things in the organization and other times you want to poke your eye with a fork.  The book is well written and uses real world examples with leaders and companies you know.  If you want to know what kind of leader you are and when you should or should not get involved, get a copy of Right Leader, Right Now.  If you would like to take the FREE leadership style assessment just click on over to www.rightleader.com A New Direction is so grateful to our sponsors, please find their Facebook pages and Instagram Profiles and LIKE and FOLLOW them.

Burnout is a word that we are using more frequently. It is because it is showing up more frequently and in a variety of different ways. It can be argued that some of the "quiet quitting" that we are witnessing is partially a result of burnout. The fact is that burnout takes a physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual toll on your employees.  So Who is to Blame When it Comes to Burnout? There is a tendency to blame.  Many organizations and business want to claim that the employee is lazy, unmotivated, disengaged.  However, the employee may not see it that way.  Why?  Because they don't even know they are burned out. Here is what we do know, that if employee has purpose in their work, are motivated and engaged you have higher productivity and efficiency. So what can you do? First, we can take responsibility where we can take responsibility.  The fact is that businesses do contribute to employee burnout which world wide costs nearly $1 trillion dollars!  The problem, like the employee they don't even know their contribution to burnout.

Our Mindsets Matter in EVERY Area of Our Life We often talk about mindsets. The research has been clear that you can have a "fixed" or "growth" mindset, an "closed" or "open" mindset, and the one that gets very little attention is "prevention" versus "promotion/abundance" mindset. This mindset seems to be especially true when we start talking about money and finances. Quite often when we talk about money so many people are focused on what they will lose rather that what they can gain. Is there a way to change our "money mindset". Well, on this episode of A New Direction International Best Selling Author and Entrepreneur Victoria Rader takes into 35 universal laws that you can start applying right now to reset your mind, take actions, control your emotions, and tap into your spiritual self to reset your relationship with yourself, others,  and your money and finances.

Your brain and you are not in Sync when it comes to the Remote work space. Since the beginning of the pandemic we are doing far more remote meetings. In fact our workplace is some hybrid of digital. It's a paradox really because even though we are more connected in these digitally  environments e.g. ZOOM, the fact is we are more disconnected than ever.  The fact is you and your brain are not connecting the dots.  You may think your fine working remotely, but your brain is actually is telling your body something completely different.  We are made for connection with other people.  Face to face conversations trigger happy chemicals in our brain, like oxytocin and dopamine.   But in the remote environment that does not happen.  What is more in these digital environments our brain must work harder.   Here is the conundrum, our brain needs appropriate stimuli to make sense of our environment. In remote meetings we lack so much of the stimuli that helps us get clarity on our environment. On this episode of A New Direction NYU Professor of Management Communication Dr. Diane Lennard helps us understand what is really going on with our brain in these environments, and why we our brain struggles in remote environments.  She then  offers several practical and well researched suggestions how you can improve your physical, mental, emotional, relational, occupational and spiritual well being for yourself and your remote meetings.  Listen for some of these remote killers: Exhaustion, Detachment, and Feeling less productive and efficient. Let's be honest the remote world is here to stay. This show will help you better navigate the remote work place. Dr. Diane Lennard and Dr. Amy Mednick book "Humanizing the Remote Experience through Leadership and Coaching: Strategies for Better Virtual Connections" is one of the most scientifically well researched books on the topic of how our brain and body respond in remote environments.  What our brain and body go through that make the remote environment so taxing and methods to help bring your mind and body into homeostasis.  The fact is remote work triggers within us stress that we are completely unaware of.  It affects us in so many ways that you may be more exhausted than you know, and sleep is not helping.  This book is amazing, and it is literally for anyone.

When it comes to leadership we often focus on "leadership" skills. That sounds good, but that is nothing more than horizontal development. Focusing on those skills is like adding more programs to your computer and expecting it to run faster and more efficiently. The fact is if you want your computer to run faster and more efficiently you need to upgrade the operating system. The same is true of leadership, if you want to be better at making better decisions you don't need more skills, you need an upgrade to your mind. On this episode of A New Direction Dr. Ryan Gottfredson joins us again to discuss how leaders can level up their leadership through vertical development. How to upgrade the operating system in your mind to become an Elevated Leader your team and your company always desired you to be. Ryan Gottfredson's book The Elevated Leader: Level Up Your Leadership Through Vertical Development delves into the areas of leadership development that no book I have read has ever ventured into.  The fact of the matter is digging into our operating system, the mind, the will, the emotions and the mind/body connection is relatively new in the literature.  The truth however lies in the fact that you can get all the leadership training in the world, but if you are dealing with your errors of your mindsets, and your own stuff, you will stay stuck.  One of the most fascinating and impactful part of The Elevated Leader is Dr. Gottfredson's work and insight into how trauma can stunt our development.  The fact is most of us experience trauma, but either we deny it, ignore it, or suppress it, but the fact remains, it is our trauma that will keep up from our development.  We all need to take a closer look at it.  The book is absolutely so powerful.  Please take a look at the FREE assessments that Dr. Gottfredson offers on his website they are truly insightful.  Click on this link right here or go to:  ryangottfredson.com/resources/#assessments Please thank the sponsors of A New Direction for their support of the show.  It is because of their financial support we can continue to bring you the best guests and a quality program.

Risk is not something we spend much time talking about in public circles. Sure, your typical financial advisor may talk about your risk tolerance, but when it comes to life risk, business risk, or career risk, we do not spend very much time discussing it. For many of us we grew up in families where they did not take much risk. They feared that risk would lead to loss. However, risk can also be rewarded. Especially if we understand it and know how to manage it. The truth is every single day you are alive you are at risk. The question is are you in control of your risk or are you letting circumstances dictate your risk. On this episode of A New Direction Retired Marine Angie Morgan rejoins us to talk about her new book entitled "Bet on You". Angie is going to take us through how if you take risk in the right way, bet on your gifts, talents, and abilities that your risk is going to lead to reward...and that reward is the life that you dreamed of, and achieving the success you imagined. Bet on You: How to Win with Risk Book - Angie Morgan - A New Direction with Jay Izso Bet on You: How to Win with Risk is a mental, emotional, and spiritual journey into our psyche when it comes to risk.  Each chapter is filled with thought provoking ideas and practical tools to help you embrace risk and achieve greater success than you are right now.  Angie Morgan and Courtney Lynch have written a must read in Bet on You.  And when you consider all the things you could bet on, you are your best investment with the greatest return.  Learn to turn your risks into rewards...Bet on You!

Then you are a public speaker.  Do you sell something?  Then you are doing public speaking.  Perhaps you are one of those people who desire to become a professional public speaker. Maybe the place that you work puts you in a position where you must speak publicly. Or maybe you are a public speaker but you want to get more paid speaking opportunities. Public speaking can be a great career, and can also be a great additional income to your career. However, for most people they are afraid to speak in public. In fact, research has shown that speaking in public is one of the most fearful things that people can do. How do you overcome the fear and become an effective, captivating public speaker?

One of the greatest gifts we can give our employees is recognize them for what they do for your company. But you want to do it right.  That year end recognition ceremony where you hand out the plaques is just not working.  So what kind of recognition works?  And how can you as a business owner, CEO, or manager get ROI from your recognition programs?  Then we have another problem...today in most companies we have a multi-generational workforce. And each generation has a different idea about what appropriate recognition is. Which also leads us to how do you sell your product or service to different generations.  And since you probably have a multi-generational sales force how do  you lead them? In this episode of A New Direction Senior Vice President of Madison Performance Group Judd Weisgal, who sells, develops and implements recognition programs to Fortune 500 companies, helps understand how to recognize and incentive employees, and gives his insights on how to sell to corporations and individuals.  He also gives his insights into understanding how to recognize and incentive multi-generational teams.  And in the last segment Judd give his expert advice on how to a lead multi-generational sales team.  Powerfully insightful show!
