Have you ever felt successful, but ultimately unfulfilled?

You can have a big business and big bucks, but if you're not focusing on the ONE thing that's truly important to you, then you probably won't be happy.

Today's guest, Scott Love, is an expert in building employee loyalty so that companies can increase retention, decrease turnover, and attract high achievers.

Scott's tactics will help any leader create a positive and supportive environment, whether you are a leader in business, community, or family.

 

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

Leadership is a journey to find your purpose, but you need to give yourself permission to embark upon it.

Start by asking yourself this question: Why am I here?

If you are struggling to come up with an answer, then imagine that you have unlimited money, your relationships are perfect, and you have all the time in the world. What is still important?

 

In this episode you will learn...

  • [6:30] How you can create an environment that the best talent won't want to leave (and will convince them to turn down better opportunities).
  • [11:50] Why your organization's mid- and low-level managers are critical for inspiring loyalty in the rest of your team.
  • [14:00] How your values affect your organization and team.
  • [16:05] How to harness another person's intrinsic motivation to accomplish your goals.
  • [21:40] The ONE thing that will make every other part of leading a team easier or unnecessary.

How do you prosper at home, crush it at work, and find the balance to thrive at both?

In this episode, we explore the challenges of thriving both as a parent and as a professional – and the small actions you can take to overcome those challenges.

This came up because Lori Roethler, today’s guest, joined one of our Facebook Live streams and mentioned she was struggling in this area of her life.

 

(If you want to join the conversation, our Facebook Live streams are every Monday and Thursday at 2:00 PM CST.)

 

In this episode you will learn...

  • [2:15] Why balancing your personal and business life can make you feel guilty.
  • [6:12] Why you sometimes need to prioritize yourself first (even as a parent).
  • [8:45] Why big change often comes from taking small steps.
  • [10:48] How accountability can give you the support you need to crush goals.
  • [15:04] How you can leverage boundaries in your professional life to make your ONE thing at home easier or unnecessary.
  • [19:50] How you can prevent your phone from stealing personal time.
  • [26:42] The ONE thing to implement from this episode that will help you strike a balance between your professional and personal life.

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

If you are looking to strike the balance between thriving personally and professionally, start by answering these two questions...

  1. What is the ONE thing you can do to be present with your family that will make them feel like you are there for them?
  1. How much focused quality time will that require? It’s not about the amount of time – it’s about the quality of time.

 

Now share your ONE thing with your family so that they can hold you accountable. Underpromise and overdeliver!
