This week we are joined by Brandon Dempsey, Author of Shut Up and Go, and Co-founder of St. Louis marketing company, goBRANDgo!, whose mission is to Empowergize People and Organizations with the innovation, imagination, and inspiration to see higher and be better. Systemization around branding and operations is a big missing link in many organizations. The disconnect occurs when Marketing sets an expectation and there are no standard operating procedures systematized throughout the journey aligning the experience with the expectation. Are you a Brand Generalist or a Specialist? “Generalists get talked to, and specialists get paid”. Systemization of the brand will create cohesion and connects customers with what the company “Specializes” in. Customers are willing to pay to solve their problems. The Systems Attribute within the 7 Attributes of Agile Growth® IP framework is a key differentiator for Gravitas Impact Premium Coaches. Many mid-market companies, and coaching organizations don’t focus on Systems, and Systems are the key to scaling efficiently and profitably.

This week we are joined by David Irvine from Alberta, Canada. David is a Family Therapist, Entrepreneur, Author and Leadership Advisor Coach for over 35 years. David Shares his BIG IDEA, which is that CEOs and entrepreneurs should throw away their titles if they want to be a leader. His premise roots from the basic idea, you do not get promoted to be a leader. You get promoted to being a boss. Leadership is something very different. You have to earn the right to be a leader, and it does not come from your position. David shares his purpose to connect leaders and difference makers in the world with their authentic self to amplify their impact on the world. His passion has been around connecting leaders with their hearts and bringing that entire message through their healing.

This week, we are joined by Andy Warren, former President of Maracay Homes in Phoenix, Arizona, Andy shares his journey of building the number one company to work for in the state of Arizona, and the three key elements he calls the “three-legged stool strategy” for building a winning culture. First, start with the right people; Next, equip those people with the resources they need to be successful; and last of all, hold those people accountable for results. Clear, simple strategy? Yes, but, very difficult to execute in a high growth industry through changing economic conditions! “If you want to get something done in your organization, it’s just the sum total of all the people.” Andy is co-author of the recently published Gravitas Impact Monograph “The 7 Attributes of Agile Growth®”, available now on Amazon.

This week, we are joined by 7 Attributes Certified Coach, Jerry Fons, CEO of Executive Power Coaching and author of Gravitas Impact Monograph Building an A Player Culture. Jerry joins us from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to talk about how he helps CEOS get results and live their Purpose through business leadership. With over 20 years of experience as a coach to CEO and C-Suite individuals within an organization, Jerry shares his BIG IDEA that CEOs live in a world of frustration daily, not understanding how to deal with the drama that happens inside their organization. In our most recent “Voice of the CEO” survey, the feelings of frustration, stress and being overwhelmed, were all too common in top leaders in growth companies. The root of these often stem from underperforming teams. In our podcast, Jerry addresses these issues head on, while sharing real world stories of success, hope and change. In Part 2, Jerry recaps The Big Idea of the virtue of being a leader, you have to deal with people. The care, development and coaching of the people that surround a CEO, is vital for a high-performance culture that delivers results. Jerry’s Monograph is about understanding  tools and processes that will help create an organization that reduces the amount of drama and raises the level of what we call A-Players in your organization. A-Players are those that are highly connecting to the core values of the company as well as highly productive, results driven individuals. When Jerry entered the coaching business 20 years ago, he began the process of identifying his personal purpose with his coach.  Discovering his purpose did not happen overnight, but once he discovered it, he found that it still fits today Learn how to accelerate growth with a 7 Attributes Certified Coach at www.GravitasImpact.com The post Creating an A-Player Culture to Win the War on Talent with Jerry Fons appeared first on Gravitas Impact.
