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.

Most of us use Amazon.com services.  It is estimated that 65% of the U.S. population uses Amazon at least once a month.  The leadership of Amazon fell on Jeff Bezos and he led and created something that most people use and even if they don't use it, we all are aware of it's success.  What does it take to lead and be a leader at Amazon?  Well this week's guest on A New Direction is  John Rossman who was a Director for Amazon.com and he reveals 14 leadership principles  that were ingrained into him during his time there. John Rossman's book "The Amazon Way: Amazon's 14 Leadership Principles" is a candid and insightful look at the leadership of Jeff Bezos and the way leadership was demonstrated and exemplified.  These 14 leadership principles or as John calls them LP's are so dependent on each other that it is really not possible to separate them.  They are all equally important and they are congruent with each other.  Please download John Rossman's free Amazon Way Leadership Poster by going to www.the-amazon-way.com And get his book "The Amazon Way" it is not a long read but it is a power packed read that you will truly enjoy.

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. Bob Schlegel's book entitled "Angels and Entrepreneurs: A Lifestyle Formula for Starting Your Own Business and Riding the Rollercoaster of Entrepreneurship is a Wall Street Journal Best Seller.  It is a close look at Bob Schlegel's journey into his failures and successes as an entrepreneur and what it takes to start a business.  In this episode Bob talks about the core of an entrepreneurs lifestyle with PEP (Persistence, Education, Entrepreneurship, Passion) we then move on to discuss other lessons and G.O.I.

Whether you are a recent graduate or a have been working in your career for decades we all come face to face with a couple of questions:  "Am I really doing the work in my career that has meaning and purpose? And is this the career I really want to spend my life doing?"  Why is it that the world looks badly at us when we say "But this is not the career I want?" or "This isn't the career I thought it would be?"  Somehow it is like we are forced to stay in our jobs or careers that we don't like because we made a decision or got a major and now like eating old boiled okra we must sit and eat it!!  Why?  And that is exactly what Dr. Alan Patterson challenges in this episode of A New Direction. Dr. Alan Patterson's book is entitled "Burn Ladders, Build Bridges".  The ladder we are burning is the corporate ladder that really has nothing to do with merit or hard work.  The bridges are building are the relationships with others and ourselves.  But as we find out in this episode Dr. Patterson walks us through the 5 Pillars to help us find the job we always wanted.  He takes through Build a base of competence and credibility. Build context. Build relationships Create impact Create meaning Here is the best part, it can start with your job right now.  It doesn't mean you hijack your job, but you can start creating the job you want if you know what you are looking for.  Dr. Patterson and "Burn Ladders, Build Bridges" is eye-opening for sure!

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.

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. We are so grateful for the financial support of the sponsors of A New Direction.  They really do help us secure great authors, books, and distribute the show.  Please go to their websites and thank them.  Even going to their social media pages and giving them a LIKE would be awesome!

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".

How many of you dream of being your own boss?  You know owning your own company.  It all sounds pretty cool until you look at the lives of those who build it from the ground up and all the struggles it takes to get to financial success.  How do you stay resilient when life throws you a curve?  Like your parents dying.  No money.  Feeling Lost and alone.  So what you do you?  Well if you are Elliott Noble-Holt, you turn a $500 dollar gift card into a copy machine and start a business.  And he joins us this week on A New Direction and encourages you that you too can make it, it may not be easy, but with perseverance and resilience you can achieve financial freedom and financial success. Elliott Noble-Holt has written a book that really is about resilience entitled "Bald, Bearded, Boss: Manifesting Who You Were Meant to Be".  The truth is it would be easy to let any circumstance get you down, but Elliott demonstrates that if you maintain your resilience you can achieve.  Elliott demonstrates his resilience in his faith.  He is resilient with his core values.  Resilient with his employees and customers.  And resilient to take care of himself.  The book is practically minded.  And starting with a "Vision Board"  Elliott Noble-Holt helps us bring what we don't see yet into existence through our vision.  Great book, fun show! Please reach out and thank our awesome financial partners on A New Direction: EPIC physical therapy, they are my physical therapists and here is just one of the reasons why.  It’s not the cutting edge equipment, it’s not that they are certified in the latest therapies, and it’s not that professional athletes use them, no, the reason I go to EPIC is because I know that they are going to design a customized treatment program specifically for me, and they care enough to make certain I follow through with it.  That’s why I go.  And you can expect the same, so when you are ready for EPIC relief, EPIC recovery, and EPIC results go to EPIC physical Therapy. www.EPICpt.com Linda Craft & Team, Realtors, for 35 years they have been helping people all over the world protect their dreams and make new ones.  Let’s be honest, most people will never think about the price of the home they purchased and sold…but we all will think about the memories that were made in that home.  The powerful emotions that were in that home.  Because at the end of the day that is what makes the home.  The memories and the emotions of those memories.  Linda Craft and her team continue the tradition of being the “memory makers” by giving the home you are ready to sell the marketing and attention it deserves, and the new memories when you purchase your next home.  When you are ready for your memory head on over to www.LindaCraft.com

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"!
