Let me ask you do love your job?  Okay, do find that when you go to work it has meaning?  Do you feel like the work you do serves a bigger purpose?  Well if you are like most people when the go to work they do not feel like their work has meaning or purpose.  What if I told you that you could find work that was both meaningful and had purpose?  Maybe you would say something like, "I don't believe you" or "I can't make a change".  What if I told you that it is possible to find meaning and purpose in the work that you are currently doing?  Now you might say, "Jay...You lost your mind".  Let me introduce you to Dr Alan Patterson who joins us on this episode of A New Direction, because he has some insight for you about your job or changing jobs that may alter your perspective. Dr. Patterson's book is entitled, "Burn Ladders. Build Bridges: Pursuing Work with Meaning + Purpose".  The book is an amazing insightful look on how we got to where we are and understanding how we need to start burning the corporate ladder, and build relationship bridges so that we can find more meaning and purpose in what we do.  One of the key takeaways in this episode, how to get unstuck.  "Burn Ladders, Build Bridges" is an outstanding no holds barred read that helps you realize you are in more control of your work than you realize.

If you are like me you remember watching the Wizard of Oz and young Judy Garland playing the heroine Dorothy from a small time in Kansas.  But what if the story was slightly rewritten.  The setting is a small Kansas town and it is a couple of businesses that wondering if they should do a merger and a young HR Director by the name of Dora T. Gayle because of a bizarre "twister" of circumstances must now be the one to determine if the merger will work.  We get introduced to Glenda Ozborn the CEO of OZ Technologies and some of her staff like Cher Crowe, Timm Mann, and Howard Lee Lyon, and of course Mitchell and his monkey Wingo, who is also known as The "Witchell" or the Wicked VP from the West.  The story is fun, but the leadership lessons are even more powerful with every chapter.  And on this episode of A New Direction Co-Author Dr. Kevin Gazzara walks through some of the lessons and the fun of the book. The book "The Leader of Oz: Revealing the 101 Secrets of Marvelous Leadership for the 21st Century" is a leadership book like none other.  While the story is fun and engaging the lessons are timeless and priceless.  What is more about the book is also a leadership assessment that you can measure your strengths in four areas: Brain, Heart, Nerve and Wisdom (I think you catch the OZ references).  We begin the show with the most obvious and fundamental leadership dimension and that is of authenticity.  And as both Dora T. and Dorothy discovery when we truly discover who we are it is when we truly begin the journey of leadership. Please say thank you to our sponsors!  It is there financial support that allows A New Direction to continue growing and getting great authors like Rob Jolles.

The late great women's basketball coach Pat Summit once was reported being asked about her secret to winning championships, she said, "recruit great players".  Jim Collins in his book "Good to Great" alludes to recruiting great employees in his quote, "If I were running a company today I would have one priority above all others: to acquire as many of the best people as I could..."  The fact of the matter is if you want to recruit the best people you have to have something to offer them.  The same is true if you want to better motivate your employees and if you have recruited the best people and you have them motivated, there is no doubt you will be profitable.  How do you do that?  Well, Author and CEO Rob Marchalonis gives you the insights with IncentShare.  It's more than just incentives it is sharing in the business so that your employees are engaged, connected, motivated, and want to see your organization prosper. Rob Marchalonis book IncentShare: Motivate, Recruit, and Get Results with Incentives - Succeed by Sharing is comprehensive step by step guide to helping you recruit and keep your best employees, while at the same time increasing profits.  Not only does Rob give you the detail on how to IncentShare he provides several examples of companies that use IncentShare to recruit the best talent.  For example did you know that Google does not have the best salaries and yet their people are some of the best paid.  That is because they share their success.  In fact, so many people apply to work for Google that it is more difficult to get a job with Google than to get into Yale, Harvard, or Princeton.  Still think that sharing financial success doesn't work...think again...because every big company is doing it and Rob Marchalonis is going to talk about how.

It has been said that "all work and no play, makes Jack a dull boy".  In today's society it seems that we just want people to work.  But maybe the real truth is we need balance in our work.  Not just play, but the idea that the workplace is a fun place to work.  Study after study has demonstrated that workplaces that have fun are more productive, more creative, and create employee loyalty.  It then begs the question:  "Would you call your workplace a "fun" place to work?  With the number of people who are ghosting their job, jumping jobs, leaving good paying companies there may be a good case that the workplace is just not a fun place to work.  Let's be honest when we are having fun...who really wants to leave a place like that? In this episode of A New Direction we bring back Dr. Bob Nelson and Mario Tamayo co-authors of the best selling book "Work Made Fun, Gets Done!"  The book is full of ideas not just for the in person office, but also for the hybrid or "work from home" (WFH) office.  Dr. Bob and Mario Tamayo are going to give their insights, experience, backed by solid research.  Let's be honest we are all looking for people who are willing to work, by loyal, be productive, be more creative, and be more efficient...and all of those things combined mean more profitability.  That is why "Work Made Fun, Get's Done" and is a must read!

Perhaps one of the greatest challenges we all have is presenting in front of others.  So often when it comes to presenting we major on the minors and minor on the majors.  The major of course making sure you are presenting you authentically.  You can have all the presentation skills down pat, but until you realize that YOU ARE THE PRESENTATION it will not make any difference, because nothing substitutes for the authentic you...you simply cannot fake it.  Thankfully for you and I best selling and gold medal winning author Dr. Sharon Lamm-Hartman joins us on A New Direction to talk about "The Authenticity Code". Dr. Sharon's book, "The Authenticity Code: The Art and Science of Success and Why You Can’t Fake It to Make It" is an absolute must read for anyone who is going after a new job, selling (B2B or B2C). public speaking, or simply networking.  "The Authenticity Code" will teach you how to find your authentic self so that you are presenting YOU authentically.  The book also gives training in how to read people while presenting and become more adaptable in your presentations.  This book is fantastic!

As a coach I am often called because the owner, founder, or CEO wants to change their business.  There is this belief system that the business is it's own entity and that you magically can change the business.  However, the truth is if you want your business to truly change then the owner, founder, or CEO is the one who must change first...and that is not always easy.  On this episode of A New Direction I have the privilege of talking change with executive coach and author Michael S. Seaver.  We talk about why it is difficult to change and the process of navigating change. Michael Seaver's book is entitled, "I Know: A Practical Guide for Awakening to What's Within and Finding Work-Life Integration"  The book is truly a practical guide on how to navigate the rough water's of change so you can change your business but it also is a book that provides practical information about how to carve out your personal mission, core values, train your people to be coaches, what you should look for in a coach and so much more!  This is one of those shows that is literally for anyone at any stage of your life, career, business.  If you want or need change this show is for you.  And pick up your copy of "I Know".

We have all heard of democracy,  The problem is we only think of it as a government entity.  The problem is as democracy is outlined most governments that say they practice democracy do not practice the principles.  Founder and CEO of Worldblu Traci Fenton joins us on this episode of A New Direction to enlighten us to understand what a true democracy is and how when applied to the workplace has demonstrated to increase profit, provide employee stability, and increase employee dedication.

When it comes to learning about business there is a great deal to be said about getting a solid college education.  And yes an MBA helps when it comes to learning about business, but perhaps the greatest lessons are learned after school is out, the school of the real world begins.  Rael Bricker is originally from Johannesburg, South Africa, but lives in Perth Australia.  He has a Master's Degree in Engineering and MBA but that is not what makes Rael Bricker's story so amazing.  What makes Rael's story so compelling is that he became a serial entrepreneur who decided to "Dive In" to one business adventure after another and achieved great success in all he did.  We are fortunate to have him on this episode of A New Direction. Rael Bricker's book is entitled "Dive In: Lessons Learnt Since Business School".  It is truly an autobiography of his life of work and all the wisdom he accumulated along the way.  From how to find marketing niches without much money, to creating a highly successful mortgage company that has a culture of fun and yet professional.  As you listen to the show you will find something that will resonate with you that you can do.  And perhaps the greatest lesson of all is...just "DIVE IN!"

Let's be honest the world is changing at an amazing pace.  Technology is moving so fast that as soon as you purchase technology it is already obsolete.   As we come through the pandemic we have watched which companies were able to handle change and which ones sadly could not.   The other fact is that if we are not willing to change, or chose to ignore it.  those businesses will die.   And then there are times when businesses try to change, but fail, because rather than understanding how to make the entire organization change,  they dictate change and the business dies again.  How can you avoid all that?  How can you make a successful change in your business?  Fortunately for us we have Erika Andersen the founder of Proteus the leaders in business change here on A New Direction. Erika Andersen's Book "Change from the Inside Out" is powerful, practical and detailed on how companies can achieve change.  The first step is to make sure that you as the leader have the mindset shift.  And the it requires that you bring your people along to the right mindset shift.  Sadly, and this is often missed, leaders typically become a dictator with change and it all fails.  Erika Andersen in "Change from the Inside Out" helps you work through the leadership issues of change, the employee issues with change, and the organizational issues such as culture when it comes to change.  Make sure you get your copy and check out additional information at www.changefromtheinside.com Please reach out and like A New Direction sponsors Facebook Pages: EPIC Physical Therapy  – www.EPICpt.com EPIC PT Facebook Page – Click Here They are my physical therapists and the therapists of professional athletes.  Make them yours too!  And get your Epic Relief, Epic Recovery, and Epic Results and Linda Craft & Team, Realtors –www.LindaCraft.com Linda Craft & Team Facebook Page – Click Here No matter where you are at in the world for more than 35 years Linda Craft & Team, have been helping people sell and buy their homes.  They can help you too!
When it comes to work freedom is the last thing we think about.  Most of the places we work at for instance use some sort of a hierarchy.  But what if you could truly have freedom at work?  What if you really mattered?  What if your opinion mattered?  What if you were given more choices within your job?  When we think about those questions depending where you are at in the hierarchical chain you may see it as a utopia or simply impossible.  On this episode of A New Direction Founder and Owner of WorldBlu Traci Fenton takes us on the beginning journey on moving your business from a dictatorship into a democracy, where people experience freedom at their work. You as a leader may be saying to yourself, "it's not possible to give people freedom and be successful".  As Traci Fenton will share with you that companies that have embraced a true democracy guided by her company Worldblu in the course of 3 years experienced a 700% revenue growth....that is not at typo, 700%.  You will hear Traci restate in the show.  The fact is embracing democracy and leadership democracy in your business is going to take a shift in mindset, design, leadership, and most of all courage.  So if you are ready to grow take a listen as Traci Fenton and Jay Izso talk about her ground breaking book, "Freedom at Work"!

We have all been through and continue to go through crisis.  For the last two plus years we have been dealing with the pandemic.  We have seen businesses crumble, people scatter, emotions rising.  The truth is leading in a crisis is not easy.  Now we have Russia invading and starting an unprovoked war with the Ukraine.  Talk about leading in a crisis, no one is envious of what Volodymyr Zelensky the President of the Ukraine must face every day.  When it comes to leading in a crisis this week's guest on A New Direction Major General John Gronski is no stranger to living in that world. Major General Gronski served in Iraq during the Iraq war.  He served in Ramadi which was called "The Bloodiest Place on the Planet".  He led soldiers from the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines.  He knows what Leading in a Crisis is, and the price of lives that war takes.  What is more he has been successful at leading.  He has written an outstanding book entitled, "Iron Sharpened Leadership".  In this episode we will talk about some of the book, but we will mostly deal with, "How do you lead in a crisis"?  How should we prepare?  What do you do in a crisis?  How do you keep your people together in a crisis?  And General Gronski will also compare and contrast the leadership styles of Vladamir Putin of Russia, and Volodymyr Zelensky of the Ukraine.  It is a powerful show!  You can contact General Gronski at www.johngronski.com Please reach out and thank the sponsors of our show A New Direction: EPIC Physical Therapy.

We place a great amount of stock in what people say, but perhaps we have that wrong.  We more than likely should pay closer to the body language of the person because that may be more of a give away of what that person is thinking.  Most of us are fascinated with body language when it comes to deception and lying.  Most of us also believe we can detect lying accurately in others say with their body, but the truth is you are only about 50% right.  True experts are 90% accurate.  But body language is important for business.   For example can you determine if someone is really interested in the job when you are conducting the interview.  How about when you are selling, can you read the body language of a potential customer that they are giving you signals  that you have lost them, and they no longer are interested in doing business with you.  Could you change your body language to win them back?  Thankfully Body Language expert Martin Brooks  joins us on this episode of A New Direction to help you not only become a better at reading others body language, but changing your body language to improve your relationships. Martin Brooks has a 50 cards in a deck with a booklet entitled "Body Language Decoder".  The booklet and the cards are an insightful look on how to help you notice body signals where people are convicted, making a powerplay, nervousness, deception, interested, disinterested and more!  This is one of those fantastica and fun reads that you will want to have as a reference.  The fact is the more we can learn about body language the better we will be at it.  The "Body Language Decoder" is fun, interesting, educational, and will be help for you in your personal life and business.

When it comes to marketing the research is clear, your best marketing is telling your authentic unique story.  Why? Because our brains are naturally wired to hear and relate to a story.  Also, because we all have one.  What is more every story is unique which means that your story becomes a differentiator when it comes to your marketing.  The question becomes how do you tell your marketing story?  Well thankfully the founder, CEO and Chief Storyteller of WordWrite PR Paul Furiga returns again on this episode of A New Direction to talk and walk you through how to tell your marketing story that will lead to more clients, more business, more profit and greater success. Paul Furiga will discuss the "5 Pillars than support your story"  Then he moves us to finding your story "archetype".  That is are you the "wise sage", maybe the "outlaw", the "jester", the "hero" or maybe someone else.  And then he moves us through how to ensure it's authentic, it is told by the right people to the right audience.  Then as we move along in the show we talk about the difference of telling a story if you are B2B or B2C and considerations of a product or service.  And all of this can be found in Paul Furiga's insightful marketing book "Finding Your Capital S Story: Why your Story Drives your Brand".  Get your Copy Today.
