Ryan Gottfredson, Ph.D. is a cutting-edge leadership development author, researcher, and consultant. He helps organizations vertically develop their leaders primarily through a focus on mindsets. Ryan is the Wall Street Journal and USA Today best-selling author of Success Mindsets: The Key to Unlocking Greater Success in Your Life, Work, & Leadership. He is also a leadership professor at the College of Business and Economics at California State University-Fullerton. Vertical development is enhancing our ability to make meaning of our world in more cognitively and emotionally sophisticated ways. The concept comes with two assumptions: 1. People vary in their cognitive and emotional sophistication 2. Those with higher altitudes of cognitive and emotional sophistication will navigate life more effectively, be better leaders, and be more positive influences within their sphere of influence. There are different levels or altitudes or levels of vertical development/cognitive and emotional sophistication. I call them Mind 1.0, Mind 2.0, and Mind 3.0. Each serves as our internal operating system that causes us to focus on different goals and needs as follows: Mind 1.0 – Focused on safety, comfort, and belonging; Mind 2.0 – Focused on standing out, getting ahead, and winning; Mind 3.0 – Focused on contributing and adding value. Understanding this should leave us with two questions: 1. How do I elevate vertically? (i.e., How do I become more cognitively and emotionally sophisticated, with particular interest in Mind 3.0) 2. Because we have elements of all three mind levels within us, we also need to ask: How do I spend a higher percentage of my time in Mind 3.0? Find out more about Ryan at https://ryangottfredson.com/

After surveying more than one million employees at a wide range of companies, New York Times bestselling authors Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton found that gratitude—when done right—is the easiest, fastest, cheapest way that managers can boost performance and employee engagement. Yet it’s also one of the most misunderstood and misapplied skills in business. Gostick and Elton solve the mystery of this “gratitude gap” in their new book LEADING WITH GRATITUDE: Eight Leadership Practices for Extraordinary Business Results (March 3, 2020; HarperBusiness). Their research shows that very few bosses intentionally bully. The problem is usually misperception or lack of awareness. These leaders have no idea how hard their people work, what challenges they face, or how much they would benefit from sincere and explicit gratitude. They also don’t know how to show gratitude effectively or sincerely.

Through his experiences with leaders, he became curious about the challenges and opportunities faced by organizations in times of rapid change. He saw how crucial issues of organizational development could be powerfully brought to life within an orchestra. Thus was born The Music Paradigm and his book Maestro: A Surprising Story About Leading by Listening which has taken Mr. Nierenberg to the podium of over ninety different orchestras, hundreds of different organizations, in two dozen different countries. We'll talk about many of the lessons learned on this journey and his book, such as: The difference between direction and criticism? The difference between management and leadership, and how does that manifest on the podium? How musicians judge a conductor?

“It is people, not things, who nurture our souls.” Character is the root of leadership. A leader of character must establish a culture of trust. A leader grows trust by trusting others first, providing a vision, displaying integrity, leading by example, and sincerely caring about others. A leader must have more than values and principles. Join us for a fresh look at Character, Competence, and Resilience with author General John Gronski (recently retired) for insights into his forthcoming book, Iron Sharpened Leadership, Fidelis Publishing/Oley North. John Gronski is a proven combat leader with over forty years' service in the United States Army including active duty and is a nonresident fellow at the Center for European Policy Analysis.

Cathy and Relly will share research from Indeed with 319 U.S. employers and how COVID 19 will impact work and hiring. The pandemic is still raging on. Vaccines are being distributed slowly. New highly contagious strains of the virus are spreading worldwide and all impacting work. More employers plan to add remote work options, too, with increased empathy for workers’ daily challenges. All told, major changes are here to stay, and employers think the future looks brighter. In fact, over one-fourth (27%) plan to hire at higher volumes than before the pandemic, and 20% anticipate hiring at the same, pre-COVID rates. Only 10% predict continuing hiring freezes, and a mere 4% think they will lay off employees this year. Although some research says only 16% of firms across the US say they will be giving a financial raise to associates in 2021. Will you qualify for a financial raise or just receive praise? What should you focus on to get a raise and be your best at work?

Too many people who have been deeply traumatized by COVID, violence, cancer, bankruptcy or divorce will tell you that they got past it, but they never got over it. They're not the same person as they were before. They feel more tentative, have their guard up, and don't step into anything new with two feet. They'll tell you that coping is better than not coping, but it's not the same as feeling fully alive, solid, and secure. What if there were a way to not just cope, but begin to heal from trauma to feel fully alive? In his new book, Why Cope When You Can Heal?, co-authored with Dr. Diana Hendel, our guest Dr. Mark Goulston introduces the world and now us to Surgical Empathy an approach he invented and expanded to people with PTSD that helps them to finally begin to heal.
