We are happy to announce the launch of Season 6 of the Leadership
Library on Tuesday February 21, 2023.
Morning coffee is one of the joys of life. When you add your Cup of Joe to your visit to the Leadership Library podcast, your morning coffee will add an educational and entertaining dose of leadership octane to your day!
Our podcast focuses on Leadership and Legacy, as we create AHA moments from my book, Tighten The Lug Nuts and my over 40 years of “boots on the ground” Leadership experience. Great leaders challenge their people NOT TO STOP AT THE FIRST RIGHT ANSWER.
Tighten The Lug Nuts and these visits to the leadership library will help you move past that first right answer. The detailed examples are organized in an educational and entertaining way to form a framework of real-world concepts. The book serves as a blueprint that can be easily applied by leaders, entrepreneurs, and all of us in our everyday lives. I hope you have enjoyed the past 5 seasons and will enjoy the shows on Season 6!

Some of our past episodes, their titles and what we have discussed. I hope you enjoy our new topics, many from your comments and request for Season 6:
You’ve Got Me Understanding
- Inspiration and creativity are especially important skills as a leader.
- When inspiration strikes, be sure to write your thoughts down with pen and paper.
You Can’t Always Get What You Want
- Go get what you need.
- You are the Architect of Your Own Destiny!
Bless The Broken Road
- The broken road will lead us to being a better leader, mentor, and coach.
- Be the ultimate Broad-based leader.
If You Only Knew What The Future Holds
- Never lose sight or the fact that you create the future, you bring the rainbow, and YOU ARE THE ARCHITECT OF YOUR DESTINY.
Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow
- Thinking about tomorrow and giving feedback to your employees, are the most important responsibilities you have
Leader Of The Band
- We should all ask ourselves a key question and answer it with a critical eye and with honesty of purpose as we look at our role as the Leader of the Band:
- How can I add value in this current position and going forward?
A Father’s Legacy
- What a great way to be described as a leader; Hardworking, Loyal, Dedicated, Family Person, Thoughtful – those are words that could be used to describe my view of a leader.
- How would you like to be described?
When The Rubber Meets The Road
- You are the role model, the leader who will model what good looks like and the behaviors you are willing to accept.
Offer More Autonomy
- Micromanagement and meddling can be the root of employee dissatisfaction and turnover.
- Micromanagers make their team members feel incompetent and powerless, which slowly chips away at self-worth and productivity.
- Understanding the psychological root of why an employee is craving a promotion is enough to give them what they’re looking for.
- A high-achieving person could be looking for an advancement in their career because deep down, they crave more autonomy.
- Empowered people want to manage themselves, make decisions and take ownership of their work void of a micromanaging boss.
- A good employee can manage themselves, their responsibilities and their time effectively.
- Ultimately, a person’s responsibility must equal their authority.
Effectively Resolving Problems
- If you value an employee and their work, then you also value their opinion of what’s happening throughout the fabric of the organization.
- Key people know of the festering problems that are slowly chipping away at their tolerance to stay. Give them the space to share.
- If the fault lies with you or your organization, take ownership of it and apologize. Then take the initiative to resolve problems in a timely and effective manner.
See You At The Christmas Party
- When your problems become the customer’s problems they just leave Don’t Be The Creator Of Chaos
- The whole team has a plan and is moving forward and then a supervisor walks in and completely changes course. The team then completely redirects their attention and energy in the new direction and scraps the work they’ve already completed, only for the boss to come in and change directions again. This is what I call “creating in chaos.”
- Chaos often happens from people who are indecisive or struggle to stay focused. The problem with this is that it affects timelines and often results in longer hours as a team often is starting from square one and on deadline. starting from square one and on deadline.
- Chaos makes for a very unpredictable and unpleasant work environment. Employees are never able to properly balance work/life because they never know when chaos is going to be created. When it’s created at 3 pm on Wednesday and requires you to work late into the night, there goes dinner with your kids. When it happens at 4 pm on a Friday, there goes the weekend.
Have a great 2023 and BE THE ARCHITECT OF YOUR OWN DESTINY
