Quick Hits are 10-minute conversations designed to exercise your brain by letting you listen in on an unscripted conversation to hear other people‘s thoughts on a variety of subjects. In February of 2021 I and the members of my mastermind group thought other people might enjoy listening in on some of the lively conversations we were having. But we realized that no one was going spend 90-minutes listening to us going on about anything and sometimes nothing. Instead, we decided to pick one top ...

This conversation got deep quickly as we talked about whether self-worth and self-esteem where driven by what we think others think or an internal mechanism. Listen in as Atif Agha. Wayne Buckhanan, Cole Galloway and I talk through the continuum and how each of us can be in a different place along it at any given moment. (And ignore the fact that I…
 
Having someone abuse our kindness never feels good. Where kindness ends and someone taking advantage starts seems to have a lot of variables. In this conversation I shared a story about giving away a rare treat as a child. I have always framed that story as someone who took advantage of my kindness. While editing I wondered if I was being kind or w…
 
Is activity that is just different from work just as good? I asked Audra Hammer Ross, Rick Alcantara, and Tiffany DuBois-Morales to share their experience. It turned into a conversation about taking time to be silent with your thoughts. Unless I am meditating or driving, that is rare for me. What do you think? Should downtime include quiet space? T…
 
This topic came up when I read a quote by Toni Morrison: "For me, success is not a public thing. It's a private thing. It's when you have fewer and fewer regrets.” My immediate response was, "Success has nothing to do with regret." But then I wondered if others might think differently. I asked Sara Oblak Speicher, Brandon Mahoney and Bill Lindquist…
 
Maybe you are like me and you want to take in information quickly and be able to recall it when you need it. Simon Coles teased me in this conversation about treating learning like a competitive sport - - he's not wrong. I asked Simon, Kristin Bainger and Matthew Douthit their thoughts on how to make the best use of information as it comes in. Not …
 
In a world where we are always trying to "limit" distractions, perhaps there is something to be said for allowing them to give your mind a much needed break. I asked Brigitte Skeene, Abigail McCloskey, and Michael Piperno what they thought about distractions and how they use them to help them be more productive. Listen in as we talk about the pros …
 
That breath stealing moment when you realized someone you trusted, even loved, has manipulated or taken advantage of you. The shock can radiate through your body like physical pain. I asked Catherine Kapferer, Brandy Lawson and Simon Coles about betrayal. The conversation was an interesting mix of self-reflection and self-protection. How do you mov…
 
There are whole books, websites and careers dedicated to helping people and companies build trust. But where is the line between positive trust and manipulation? We didn't mention it in our conversation but scams are, by definition a manipulation of trust. I asked Brandon Mahoney and Jona Ohm, their thoughts and we came to the conclusion that it is…
 
Work-life balance is thrown around A LOT, particularly at women. But what if it's not actually a thing and "balancing" is an unhealthy way to look at it. I had this conversation with Michael Sicuranza, Wayne Buckhanan and Andrew Baharlias (It is not lost on me that they are all men. That's just how it worked out.) They had some good insights into w…
 
When I do talks and trainings on communication and conflict resolution I like to tell this joke: "What is the difference between perception and reality? Perception is what you think. Reality is what I think." It's funny because it's true. Is reality just an agreed upon perception? Listen in as Brea Sorrells, Atif Agha, Rick Alcantara, and I grapple…
 
In many industries it is common practice to ask for and receive contact information to talk to existing customers. I have done it myself in the past. Even though I did my "due diligence" the guy turned out to be a huckster. Calling his references was a waste of time. In my business clients have 100% confidentiality. That means I don't ask them to b…
 
Feedback can be seen as advice giving or it could be welcomed as helpful. We didn't get into it in this conversation but I think mansplaining (whether done by a man or a woman) certainly falls into the inappropriate feedback category. Listen in as Brandon Mahoney, Simon Coles, Stewart Wiggins and I have this conversation that came on the back of Ho…
 
When you are looking to get better at something, the least useful but easiest thing for someone to say is, "You're really great!" I asked Brandon Mahoney, Simon Coles and Stewart Wiggins how they got people to provide useful feedback and learned there are some cultural differences. When are you most likely to help someone grow versus stroking their…
 
The original topic for this Quick Hits was, How to leave room that you could be wrong without allowing someone to gaslight you. We quickly realized that a healthy psyche usually leaves a little space for remembering something incorrectly or being mistaken. We also talked about how feelings come into play. Listen in as Ania Jarmulowicz, Tim Hawkes a…
 
This point comes up A LOT in Quick Hits conversations. The basic assumption is that mangers are about getting tasks done. Leaders are more strategic. If you're good at tasks can you become a leader? Can you be a leader and not understand the tasks? Listen in as Stewart Wiggins, Amanda Olivo Ulichny, Matthew Douthit and I talk through our thoughts a…
 
Self-delusion is hard to catch because, by it's very nature, we have no idea we are doing it. When I asked Matthew Douthit, Amanda Olivo Ulichny, and Stewart Wiggins this question we came to the conclusion that getting and accepting outside feedback was critical. That is easier said than done. Listen in as we talk through our thoughts on the subjec…
 
Too often it seems like we are talking passed each other. Whether people are on different sides of a topic or simply too distracted to actually listen, conversations can feel fake, shallow and even useless. I invited Philip Tate and James Lee to have a conversation (which felt authentic to me) about how we might create real communication and connec…
 
This is a hot topic particularly in women's entrepreneur groups. Some say they will talk however they $%*&@ want and other say cursing is never acceptable in a professional setting. I invited Sara Oblak Speicher, Andrew Baharlias and Tiffany DuBois-Morales to discuss. Do you agree with our conclusion? To learn about the panelists, please visit thei…
 
If leadership could be learned from a book, a seminar, a webinar or a workshop the world should be FULL of amazing leaders. That simply isn't the case. I invited Kristin Bainger and Stewart Wiggins to share their insights into why that is happening and how an individual might become a good leader in spite of the mountain of less than ideal instruct…
 
"It's lonely at the top" is such a given that there are memes about it. But WHY? Successful people always have lots of people around. Their calendars are often double booked with appointments. How is it not only possible but likely that you are lonely while surrounded by people clamoring for your attention? Jona Ohm, Wayne Buckhanan, Steve Thomson …
 
What is the difference between being in a grove and being in a rut? Can you move from one to the other? It seems like a pretty straightforward answer. But when Stewart Wiggins, Karen Loomis and I got into it, we realized there was some nuisance there. We decided a groove can turn into a rut but not the other way around. Do you agree or disagree wit…
 
An ambush conversation is when someone “grabs” you to talk about something important when you are in the middle of something; between meetings (on the way to the bathroom is a favorite in the office) or when you aren’t ready to have the conversation. An ambush conversation often results in saying “yes” when you should have and would have said “no” …
 
When focused on a really big outcome goal it is easy to forget to enjoy today. I posed this dilemma to Catherine Daley, Kristin Bainger and Simon Coles. They had very different takes on how to approach it, if they even thought it was an actual problem. To learn about the panelists, please visit their LinkedIn profiles: Catherine Daley: https://www.…
 
It happens without you realizing it. You stay late to finish a project. You take an early morning meeting to accommodate someone in a different time zone. You pick up extra work when a coworker goes out sick. Suddenly you realize you are working ninety-hour weeks and are exhausted. You try to talk to your boss but they aren't much help. As you try …
 
Knowing when to turn it off. Have you every stuck with something WAY longer than you should have? Relationships, jobs, businesses that aren't working. There is A LOT of content about how to build grit and resilience. There are even Quick Hits about it (https://youtu.be/MP4ksq7Q34Y, https://youtu.be/xVDs480ubmo). But something that is rarely (basica…
 
How your brain gets into focused mode is likely different then someone else. For some people 20-40 minutes is all they can do. For others they need to set aside more time so once they get into the flow they aren't pulled out of it. Listen in as Sara Oblak Speicher, Bill Lindquist, Rowley Maggs and I talk about how we get and stay focused when we ne…
 
The busier you are the more likely it is that someone will want to pile more on your plate, particularly if you are the type of person who says "yes" (or says no and then ends up doing it anyway). Kristin Bainger, Karina Hulstrom and Wayne Buckhanan joined me to discuss how to say "no" and make it stick without being judged negatively for it. How d…
 
How do you manage the discontentment between excellence and perfection? Is 70% good enough? 80%? Maybe 98%? This is an amazing conversation about how to decide when something is good enough/excellent and how to let go of the rest. Listen in as Richard Pilton, Martin Feaver, Tim Hawkes and I struggle with how we define and use these ideas in our liv…
 
Having a purpose in life has been showing to relate to happiness but does having goals relate? This conversation stemmed from our discussion How to Tell if Your Goals are Your Goals (https://youtu.be/DiWJdm0wXD0 ). Listen in as Simon Coles, Rosie Miller, Karen Loomis and I discuss our thoughts and experience with goals and happiness. To learn about…
 
Have you ever achieved a "goal" only to realized it wasn't really something you wanted? Or maybe you're starting to realize that your life feels unfulfilling. Would you know if what you're doing day to day isn't taking you in the direction of what YOU actually want? Listen in as I chat with Rosie Miller, Karen Loomis and Simon Coles to get their th…
 
I asked three former competitive athletes to join me in a conversation about something very few people talk about - how having been an athlete has been BAD for their success. Listen in as James Lee (#fencing), Kristin Bainger (#equestrian), Marie Wright (#swimming) and I (#BeachVolleyball) share our experience in this timely conversation. (Note: th…
 
Sometimes you can have a lot going on and manage it just fine. Other times you aren't as busy but everything feels out of control. In psychology we talk about overwhelm being caused by being held accountable/responsible without having the authority/ability to do whatever it is. Listen in as Kristin Bainger, James Lee, Rowley Maggs and I share what …
 
Does learning from a mistake mean you need to label it a mistake? If you end up with a similar "wrong" outcome, did you not learn? If you are anything like me, you've had lots of opportunities to make the "same" mistake a different way. This week I posed the same question to two different groups of experts (watch the first one here: https://youtu.b…

When you have done all your research and have all your facts lined up it can be a shock when someone pushes back or shuts you down in a meeting. How you might handle it depends on if the person is a peer or someone in power. Listen in as James Blair, Bill Lindquist, Tim Hawkes and I talk about our ideas and best practices for handling the situation…
 
Some mistakes are small and easy to brush off. Others are so big they throw your mind into panic. If you don't have a plan for what to do when a mistake like that happens, you WILL make poor choices. Listen in as Kristin Bainger, Tim Hawkes, Wayne Buckhanan and I talk about the right and wrong way to recover from a mistake. We got a little silly at…
 
This was a tough one! Humans have to be able to decide positive/negative. Evaluation is a necessary part of life. Does it become judgemental when we add emotion about our choice? Kristin Bainger (Germaine Life), Marie Wright (Bold Bean Coaching), James Lee (StratFI) and I (Champion Performance Development) grappled with how we can be discerning but…
 
It might feel like they are dilly-dallying around but a good marketer is going to take the time to understand your business and where you are before they start asking you to throw money at ads, PR, websites, print design or anything else. Listen in as I talk to Karen Loomis, Rick Alcantara, and Charles Lee Collins about what to expect from the firs…
 
I expected this conversation to be tips to get bang for your buck. But it turned out to be SO much more useful than that. These three experts talked about what to do BEFORE you spend your first cent on marketing. Listen in as Rick Alcantara, Karen Loomis and Charles Lee Collins share how we (people who use marketing services) can show up better pre…
 
This is another conversation where at first the answer seems straight forward. But as we dove in the nuances of the English language and how we interpret the words is more nuanced than we first thought. If you enjoy conversations that make you think and exercise your brain, this one is for you. Thank you to Kristin Bainger, Tim Hawkes and Bill Lind…
 
Accountability, responsibility, authority, power and even blame. All pieces of the puzzle of getting things done or are they individual aspects that can (should?) be looked are separately? Kristin makes the point about blame being emotion and everything else is just the facts. Listen in as Karen Loomis, Wayne Buckhanan, Kristin Bainger and I talk t…
 
What does it mean to thrive versus survive? I've been thinking about this a lot since Simon Coles, Rowley Maggs, Rick Alcantara, and I had this conversation. Something that has come up for me since is that thriving might be having the mental and emotional space to make choices/decisions rather than feeling completely overwhelmed and having to dash …
 
"I'm sorry" could be empathic, sympathetic, apologetic, manipulative or meaningless. This conversation has made me much more aware of how "I'm sorry" is used in everyday interactions and where I use it. I said "sorry" to my husband just this morning when I stepped in front of him as he was heading to the coffee pot. Listen in as Kristin Bainger, Wa…
 
Do you have to forgive someone to let go of something? Should you forgive someone who isn't sorry? Does letting something go mean "forgive and forget?" What I can say for sure after this conversation: English words mean very different things even among native English speakers. Listen in as Tim Hawkes, Kristin Bainger, Wayne Buckhanan, and I try to …

The small stepping stones are an important part of any big success. But they are easy to move through like they don't matter. As a recovering "box checker" I am certainly guilty of it. Listen in as Kristin Bainger, Karina Hulstrom, Wayne Buckhanan and I share best practices, what we tell clients and what we do (maybe not so well) ourselves. To lear…

Friendships end, sometimes with a fight, sometimes with ghosting but often they just fizzle. Is there a gender difference in how much thought goes into the end of a friendship? Listen in as Karen Loomis, James H. Lee, Rowley Maggs and I tackle this challenging subject and share our experience with having people we cared deeply about no long be part…
