Crucial Talks Episode 35: Legacy, Leadership, and Lug Nuts everyone plays roles. In this episode, I spoke about the role of leaders in instilling a sense of Legacy and the behaviors they need for this to happen. This concept is important because the roles people play, and behaviors people assign to those roles will guide what they do. Their role is important especially at the time when people are trying to make sense of the world around them and then decide what to do. We discussed vision, mission, goals and the leader’s role. We provide three key questions leaders can ask themselves: Who am I? What do I stand for? What won’t I compromise?

Funky Thinkers.

Independent business owners with a vision and an energy of positivity. They think about the world differently and it is why they are successful (maybe not beyond their wildest dreams, although when they get up in the morning they have energy and are ready to go with joy and a smile!)

So, after I (Jonathan Senior ) completed this project I knew others out there would gain from my Funky Thinkers. Upon giving them this name I wanted to showcase them for others to get what I got.
Why? Because they understand that an effective interview rather than shilling and huckstering, is about content, delivering value to the audience. They leave the shouting loudest contest to other people.

Funky Thinkers understand that telling is lecturing (like the kids coach bellowing to their charges that they have to go out and win) and totally uninteresting. They know how to show you who they are – why they are different and what happened to get them there. How they enjoy the journey and how you might too.

Understand the business and role you must take to be successful. When you consider this business as if it’s your own, one pays careful attention to all customers, competitors, the market, co-workers.
