There are different perspectives on what "work" is and what it "should" be. Some people will say that you "go to work, you don't go to fun", but that simply is not true any more. Today we all go to work trying to be in an environment where we can use our talents, gifts, abillties and knowledge, have a sense of fulfillment, and at the same time be able to adequately provide for our family and ourselves. However, as we all know we get that career job, and it doesn't turn out the way we had hoped. In fact, it seems as if our work is taking more work than it is worth. What is more, all those promises that you were told, like how you were going to move up quickly in the company have been all but dashed because you were passed up...again...for someone else. This breeds discouragement and dissilusionment when it comes to work. Well in this episode of A New Direction Career Coach Extraordinaire, Terry Boyle McDougall helps you understand that if you are going to play in the game of work, part of the problem is you are playing by the wrong rules. As Terry says, "it's like your work is play by the rule of  Monopoly, but you are playing by the rules are Twister". From her best selling book "Winning the Game of Work". This episode is going to be an eye opener for both the employee and employer.   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.

Today was "Ask Coach Jay Day".  Complete transparency we had a glitch with the original guest and rather than do nothing we decided to have a show where people could write in their questions live.  So on this episode of A New Direction...we truly took A New Direction.  The show started with talking about how to find your natural God given gifts and how that can lead to a purpose.  Then our first question came from a viewer and listener who wanted to know how you get out of a rut in your life.  The final question we answered was from a viewer and a listener who wanted to know how do you fight for your dreams when you have health issues.  And the end of it all we learn three things we are always in control of...our attitude, our effort, and our perseveverance.  Let us know if you like ths show and if you would like to hear more "Ask Coach Jay" shows in the future.

Why can't we all just get along? As the generations work in the same space, the differences seem to be magnified. The lines have been drawn. Everything seems to be black and white with no gray area. If you are a "baby boomer" chances are you find the millennials and Gen Z generations frustrating, perhaps seeing them as entitled, lazy, or arrogant. If you are Gen X like me, it's all about independence, we find the "baby boomers" closed minded and controlling. If you are a milennial you want to collaborate and not be left out, you want balance, and find meaning and purpose. If you are a Gen Z when it comes to work you want to know, "What's in it for me". Let's open our minds for a minute. The fact is we were all raised in different era's. The way we were raised was completely different from each other. Each generation speaks a different language. There are technological differences, the speed of information differences, and more...the truth is no generation is right...we are just different, and that's where we need to start. On this episode of A New Direction we have with us generational expert Chris De Santis talking about his amazing and insightful book: "Why I Find Your Irritating: Navigating Generational Friction at Work". Chris De Santis book "Why I Find You Irritating: Navigating Generational Friction at Work" is an eye opening and revealing look at how the different generations came to be, and how they view working in today's workforce.  The book examines how we have come to have the biased views we have of each generation and the Chris gives us ways to help combat those biases and treat each generation as they were meant to be treated by giving us some skill training in both our behavior and mindset when it comes to the different generations.  The book is a must read for every CEO, Owner, Founder, Entrepreneur, Manager, and employee.  You will come to understand when it comes to generations.  "Why I Find You So Irritating". Please, Please Please, yes I am begging you to reach out to the sponsors of A New Direction.  Thanks to their financial support we are able to bring you these great experts and their books to help you live the life you always dreamed of.  So, reach out to them and just say “thank you for sponsoring A New Direction.

Are you as successful as you want to be in your life? How about your business? How about your career? Research has demonstrated that how you think determines the level of success regardless of how you define it, that you can achieve. Researcher and Best Selling Author Dr. Ryan Gottfredson joins us again on this episode of A New Direction to dig deeper into the four mindets that can create success or can kill it.  The sad truth is that most of us are in complete denial about our mindsets, believing we are better than we truly are... Dr. Gottfredson sheds light on four mindsets from his book "Success Mindsets". Think of them on a continuum. The four mindsets are: Growth or Fixed Mindsets Open or Closed Mindsets Promotion or Prevention Mindsets Outward or Inward Mindsets Ryan Gottfredson's book, Success Mindsets: Your Keys to Unlocking Greater Success in Your Life, Work, & Leadership is an absolute deep dive into our mindsets and how they affect our life, our work, our behavior, and our success.  As we take a deeper dive into the book we must come to realize that our own upbringing has influenced much of our mindsets, and that they are most often not serving us well, not to mention they do not serve others at all.  Success Mindsets is a perfect book for you, your team, and your clients.  If you would like to take the Success Mindsets Assessment go to:  www.ryangottfredson.com/successmindsets Please reach out and say thank you to the financial partners of A New Direction Show: EPIC Physical Therapy from every day aches and pains, to injuries to keeping elite athletes at the top of their game, EPIC pt has the cutting edge equipment and the certified staff to create an individualized treatment program specifically for you.  They are my physical therapists and I think they should be yours too.  So if you want EPIC Relief, EPIC Recovery, and EPIC Results.  Start by contacting the great people at EPIC Physical Therapy….www.EPICpt.com Linda Craft & Team, Realtors for 35 years they have been known for having “Legendary Customer Service”.  Unaffiliated and independently owned and operated they can recommend the best real estate professional to help you sell your home or buy your next home anywhere in the world.  That is because they are not attached to a company they are attached to what is in your best interest.  So before you buy or sell start with the “Legends” at Linda Craft & Team.  Just click on over to www.LindaCraft.com
So often we wonder why we do not get the results we are looking for. We will typically blame a person or group of people for our failures and mistakes. If you are leading a team you will frequently be tempted to follow the addage of "fire fast and hire slow". But are these really problems that are beyond your control or problems that you could control if your mindset was different? The problem is we get into denial believe that we have the right mindsets. If I were to ask you right now do you have a "closed" or "open" mindset you would undoubtedly say "open". Yet your behavior says, "closed", your team may even say "closed". That's because we don't know our mindsets well and what it would take to truly change them. Fortunately, on this episode of A New Direction Best Selling Author Dr. Ryan Gottfredson walks us through the four mindsets and how by changing them we can become more successful in every area of our life. Ryan Gottfredson's book: Success Mindsets:  Your Keys to Unlocking Greater Success in Your Life, Work & Leadership is one of the most eye opening, life changing books I have ever read.  If you take this book seriously it will change you, your work, the way you lead, and ultimately the way you live your life.  In Success Mindsets Ryan Gottfredson focuses on four primary mindsets.  "Growth vs Fixed Mindsets", "Open vs. Closed Mindsets", "Promotion vs. Prevention Mindsets", and "Outward vs. Inward Mindsets".  As he takes you on a deeper dive of each one, there will undoubtably come a point where you see yourself along the contiuum of each.  In fact, if you would like to evaluate yourself in each of these mindsets.  Ryan Gottfredson will let you take his assessment for free by clicking on ryangottfredson.com/successmindsets  Truly a life changing book!

Did you know that according to Gallup only 36% of employees are actually engaged in their work? That means basically 2 out 3 employees just do a job without having a purpose. We currently live in an era of "Quiet Quitting"...just doing enough to not get fired. Why? Becaue they cannot find a purpose in their work.  What does that mean to you and your business? What lack of employee engagement and purpose means is less productivity, lower morale, fewer innovative ideas, and ultimately less profit. So what can you do increase employee engagement? Help them find their purpose.  How? There is an answer. And on this episode of A New Direction best selling author Steve Curtin ( "Delight Your Customers") raises your employee engagement by aligning their work purpose with your company values and with some one-on-one converstations known as the "The Revelation Conversation" Steve Curtin author of the best selling book "Delight Your Customers" has a brand new eye opening book for every business entitled, "The Revelation Conversation: Inspire Greater Employee Engagement by Connecting to Purpose".  What makes this book such a game changer is that finally help the employee connect to a "work purpose".  Why does their work matter?  How does their work truly make an impact?  What brings meaning to their work?  Just think about it if your employees knew the answers to those questions what would you see happen in your business...one thing is for sure...you wouldn't worry about "quiet quitting", and you find yourself in the most profitable position you have ever been in.

It has been said, "there are no business problems, but only personal problems that show up in your business." As one who coaches business professionals at every level, I have found this to be 100% true. When our lives lack purpose, meaning, or we feel have not impact, we are living a life that is unfulfilling. The external rewards only take us so far. The accumulation of things and money dissilusion us with power that we mistake as fulfillment. The truth is you and I have been placed on this planet for a much bigger purpose. And it's not so we can accumulate "stuff". No we want "meaning" in our work. We ultimately want to make an impact on the lives of others. And when we can connect that dots in our life and business that we are in fact serving a greater purpose and that we have impact on our world around us...that's fulfillment. But how do we get there? Thankfully for us on this episode of A New Direction Will Schirmer returns with his brand new book..."Fulfilled: Finding Joy & Prosperity in Life". Will digs into you and gives us practical guidance to live the life we all want to live. Will Schirmer's latest book: "Fulfilled: Finding Joy and Prosperity in Life" is a winner!  This book will hold you accountable to you.  It is divided into 6 sections with the first section entitled "Character" are the foundational building blocks by which the remaining  5 sections can rest on.  Those 4 Character stones are: Integrity, Humility, Accountability, and Compassion and Forgiveness.  The rest of the book rests on these corner stones that the house of fulfillment can be built one.  The book is amazing deep dive into you so that you can live a purpose filled, meaningful, impactful, and fulfilled life.  Get yourself and your loved ones a copy of "Fulfilled" it is a great read!

Whether you are an Owner, CEO, Manager, or an Employee. One thing is absolutely true that when we trust each other it is easier for us to together as a team work be more productive, impactful, and certainly more profitable. Then why do we have such a difficult time getting our team of people to trust and "play nice" with each other so that we can experience the benefits. Often times we focus on Whether you are an Owner, CEO, Manager, or an Employee. One thing is absolutely true that when we all work together as a team work is more productive, impactful, and certainly more profitable. Then why do we have such a difficult time getting our team of people to "play nice" with each other so that we can experience the benefits. Often times we focus on micromanagement disquised as accountability to drive our teams, but micromanagement never builds trust and accountability alone does not bring the team together, nor does it ensure "teamwork". So what really is lacking when our team or teams are not dedicatedly working together? Well, to borrow a quote from the great singer Billy Joel...It's a matter of trust. And fortunately on this episode of A New Direction Business Trust Expert from Australia Marie-Claire Ross shares her researched "Integrated Trust Building System" to help you and you team or teams get better connected, get more productive, make a bigger impact, and ultimately become more profitable. Marie-Claire's book: Trusted to Thrive is an absolute comprehensive guide into building trust between you as a leader and your team.  There is no doubt this is going to take hard work.  But the research she has conducted for the book as well as her own make "Trusted to Thrive" a powerful set of tools to build or rebuild any business or organization into the productive, efficient and profitable place that is was meant to be.

Who doesn't like a really great underdog story? We all do! And former CEO of PRC-Desoto Ted Clark inspires us with his story on this episode of A New Direction. No MBA.  In fact, Ted did not have a degree.  As his story goes at 19 he started as a "shipping clerk"...and in 22 years he worked his way up to becoming the CEO and President of a major corporation.  Then he did it again, and then he started his own corporation and grew into a global publicly traded company! How? you may ask. And that is the power of Ted's story. His will, his curiosity, his perseverance, and more. He provides you with the practical tools that literally any one of us can do, if you are willing to do them. And the fact is the only person who is stopping you from doing them right now...is YOU! From knowing your "WHY" to "Leading with Purpose", Ted delivers an inspiring message for us all. Ted Clark's book "Shipping Clerk to CEO: The Power of Curiosity, Will and Self Directed Learning"  Is a powerful, practical bluprint for success at any level in any business.  Ted Clark delivers an inspiring message with his practical steps that if you will take the initiative, create some better habits, and have a desire to aspire and achieve you will move up in whatever company you are in, from whatever position you are in.  The book is not a long read, but it is filled with so much powerful and useful information, that it is perfect for the high school student to the late in life person ready to make a career change.  "Shipping Cleark to CEO" by Ted Clark is a must read in my opinion.

They say, "a picture is worth a thousand words". Isn't it true? Psychologically our brain is wired to remember pictures easier and with much more clarity than listening to words or reading them from a page. Then why do spend so much time carving out the right message with words when we could be enhancing our leadership and lives by creating pictures that can be seen in our mind. Author Todd Cherches joins us this week on A New Direction and gives us practical guidance and tools to help us leverage the power of visual thinking in leadership and life from his best selling book VisuaLeadership. Todd Cherches' book "VisuaLeadership: Leveraging the Power of Visual Thinking in Leadership and in Life"  is not your typical "leadership" book.  Todd who is an NYU and Columbia University award winning lecturer opens our eyes and minds to creating pictures for our audience and followers so that we can make deeper connections, have more clarity, and make our points easier to remember.  Whether we actually use visual images or we paint the images through stories in the minds of those who we lead.  VisuaLeadership is an excting way to approach communication whether in leadership or just living life.

When we hear the word "Data" the first thing we think of naturally is numbers. And so often we think that the "numbers" make the decision for us.  The fact is the analytics and statistics only tell us part of the story and if the "input" is wrong up front, the resulting "data" will mislead us into making bad decisions. Kevin Hanegan author of "Turning Data Into Wisdom" joins us on this episode of  A New Direction.  Kevin is going to give you deep insights on how we need to be careful with the numbers we see in every day life. And take a close look at our biases when it comes to looking at the data and other  errors we make with "data". Further Kevin and I explore how we misinterpret data and how we can be more conscious of our misinterpretations.   In his book "Turning Data Into Wisdom"  Kevin encourages to ahve a healthy bit of sketpicism.  We should always question the results we are presented with on TV.  In fact we need to get better at challenging the statistic rather than trying ot find ways to verify what we believe.  Because that is bias.  And when we are biased the last thing we are doing is "Turning Data into Wisdom"  Whether that be for our lives or our business.

Nearly all of us have either tried or dreamed about starting our own business and become entrepreneurs.  Why don't more people become entrepreneurs?  The number one reason is, that it is filled with so much risk, that people cannot take it.  The other reason is because it is a constant rollercoaster sometimes from day to day.  Those that are successful entrepreneurs are far fewer than those who have failed.  By multi-entrepreneur and philanthropist Bob Schlegel is one of those entrepreneurs who knows the game so well has failed, faced bankruptcy, depression and more only to come out on top and keep going.  And he joins us this week on A New Direction.
