Using High Sensitivity as a Strength with Heather Dominick

Today I want you to learn from Heather Dominick, founder of a Course in Business Miracles, whose research with entrepreneurship has led her to discover a fascinating statistic: 20% of all entrepreneurs are highly sensitive.

Could it really be that high? Absolutely. What’s even more surprising is that most entrepreneurs don’t even know, and therefore, aren’t using this unique skill to its full potential.

As a highly sensitive entrepreneur, there are things you can do to combat the coping mechanisms that come automatically with being an HSE, and Heather gives some great insight on how to do this.

“We have to learn how to embrace this and how to really use it to our benefit and our advantage than having it work against us.”

On this episode of My Quest for the Best we’re sharing this interview with Heather, who’s teaching us how to use HSE abilities to thrive in business and in other relationships.

In this interview, Heather also discusses how Highly Sensitive Entrepreneurs can play a role in shaping their environment, and what HSE’s can do to better their workplace.

Do More with Less with Essentialist Greg McKeown

Today I want you to learn from Greg McKeown, the bestselling author of Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less, who believes that the key to success has nothing to do with having more, but doing more with less. But wait, doesn’t success mean more business, more clients, and more of the work you want to be doing?

Greg McKeown says no. Instead, the idea is to pare down what you’re doing to that which is most essential, focusing your efforts on prioritizing things that you’re doing that will bring about the best results.

“The undisciplined pursuit of more does not produce the freedom, the joy, the results that people are promised.”

On this episode of My Quest for the Best we’re sharing this interview with Greg, who’s teaching us how to stop being so busy and start focusing on the essential.

In this interview, Greg also discusses time management and how to make trade-offs to do less of what you don’t need to be doing, to do more of what you should be doing – and spend less time doing it!

Have Fierce Conversations with Susan Scott

Today I want you to learn from author of Fierce Leadership and Fierce Conversations, Susan Scott, who is an advocate for “putting on a scuba tank” to dive deeper and have more meaningful conversations. She just isn’t interested in what lives on the surface, she believes that the secret to strong connection takes a bit more effort to access.

What if my employees aren’t invested in what the myself and the management team has to express? Susan would rebuff this by explaining that by sticking to the status quo and never taking the risk to be vulnerable, honest, and fierce in your meetings and conversations, you are never going to get anywhere.

Get in the Value Creation Zone with Thomas Barta

Today I want you to learn from Thomas Barta, a former McKinsey partner who has trained CMO’s and marketing specialists around the world to get in the value creation zone by adjusting their language and making customer focus their top priority. His advice? Cut it out with all the marketing lingo, and for the love of increased revenue, stop using the word “Bingo.”

Thomas told me that there’s this big disparity between c-suite executives and CMO’s, claiming that c-suite execs, for the most part, don’t think that marketing has ANY real value. I was shocked! Turns out that the buzzword-rich language marketers speak is actually causing them to lose credibility with the c-suite, and making their efforts appear as cost rather than revenue.

What a notion! But the crazy part is that it’s true.

Today on My Quest for the Best, we’re sharing our revenue with the poignant Thomas Barta, who explains why you should save your marketing speech for the marketers.

Wow! Whoever thought that being lazy could make your team more productive?

Team Well and Prosper with Janice Presser

Today I want you to gain new nuggets of wisdom from world-respected Teamability® expert Janice Presser, who has pretty much written the guidebook for how teamwork actually makes the dream work.

She also told us that the real reason people leave their jobs isn’t because of the work they do, it’s because of the people they work with. This made me skeptical, because people leave jobs all the time because the work is boring, right? Turns out, that’s not really the case at all! So many people stay with companies not because of the work they do, but because of the people they work with.

Amazing.

Naturally, I asked her to elaborate on this, and she wowed me with stories about the significance of team chemistry, role respect, and making sure everyone on your team has a place at the table.

This week on My Quest for the Best, we’re sharing our synergy-themed interview with Janice Presser, who is teaching us how to truly team well and prosper.

Make Your WOM Unforgettable with Joe Calloway

Today, I want you to hear from Joe Calloway, who turned a blunder into a win-win bonanza! He is a mastermind when it comes to the powers of WOM, that is, word of mouth, and insists that positive WOM can transform your business in the same way once you embrace this tool.

But does positive word of mouth really make THAT much of a difference? Yes! And it didn’t take Joe Calloway long to convince me that the biggest force behind being magnetic isn’t your brand, your personality, or your product – it’s your positive word of mouth. Really!

So I asked him to share with us exactly how we can turn our positive business experiences into our own personal success stories.
