Speaker 1:

this is on leaching leadership, and I'm your host, travis Moss, and you have found episode 29, and episode 29 is the rollout for the ideal team player by Patrick Lanzioni, and this is coming right on the heels of team of teams. So we're going from team of teams to the ideal team player. I promise you this entire podcast is not always just going to be about teams. We're going to get into a lot of other really fun stuff. However, this has happened coincidentally, not planned. We just happen to have team of teams back right up by the ideal team player, which couldn't be more perfect, if you think about it. We're saying, hey, go make a, go make a team, and you know I'll be a part of a team. Well, who should you be inviting on the bus? Right, what's an ideal team player? So the timing of this is perfect and it happened by complete chance.

Speaker 1:

I was doing the team of teams and Jess, one of our wealth managers at CKMD, said I've read this book. It is so powerful, I need to do a book report. You need to listen. I said, alright, well, it's not required, but I'll listen. This is going to be exciting. I'm so pumped that you are on this path for self growth that you're not going to, you're not going to stop, you're going to say, no, this is so important, I'll make sure everybody else hears about it. So she went, she recruited our chief operations officer, dave, and she said, dave, let's do a book report. Dave said absolutely, I love this book anyway. I think Dave is actually how the book was introduced to us. I think that's how it originally got on the reading list in the first place. But so they took the book, they did a book report. I've not read the book twice. We have taken what was so powerful to them and actually started to implement that book into our business the framework that it creates, with the hungry, humble, smart focus.

Speaker 1:

I cannot personally find an argument for that and I am an argumentative person, so it's very rare that I'm speechless. I have I can't poke holes in something, and it is just very, very profound. And we're you doing it in real time, while we're actually shooting team of teams, while we're actually recording ideal team player, we are literally implementing that framework. So we're going to be able to talk about what's working, what's not working and the profound impact from it, and so I think that is just really, really exciting.

Speaker 1:

And isn't that the epitome of growth? Think about what Jess did you know, if you're, if you're growing or you're trying to grow, you're trying to improve and you keep stuff to yourself, you hide yourself, you turn the lights out, you stay in a room, you don't, you're not concerned about whether or not others are on the same same bus as you, you're just doing your own thing. That's not growth, right? That's not where fulfillment comes from. That's why people are miserable, that's why people have their defenses up and all that kind of stuff. Growth is taking your inspiration and sharing it and inspiring others and helping others grow and lifting the entire like effortlessly lifting everybody around you up. That is powerful and that's what I'm seeing with Jess's work on this and that that's why I'm so excited to bring this book to you.

Speaker 1:

Next, because you know these ideas. You know we read books, we go to conferences, whatever write down ideas and they go on our our heap of ideas and we very rarely actually do something with them. Because how do you do something with them? Takes a certain amount of creativity and moxie to go take. Take something, actually implement, implement it and go against the grain right or go against our the way that we're doing things. This is a real life story of how we're doing that.

Speaker 1:

So couple of the titles, because this is this is really gonna be a fun, it's colorful book. I like it. We're gonna kick it right off with intentional culture and then we're, as we progress, we're gonna go through the no jackass policy. We're gonna be talking about don't be, don't be Bob, one of the main characters of the book and the enemy of good. Overall, there's about 21 episodes so far. I would expect that there's a good chance that that could expand a little bit. So at least for the next four to five weeks, you can be learning about what it means to be an ideal team player, which you. That's pretty inspirational. That's pretty positive, I think.

Speaker 1:

And something new that I want to do at the end of this series is I actually want to see if we can get Jess and Dave to come on the show and talk about their experience with this book and their experience with implementing these ideas and what that change or impact is. I think that that would be really awesome. They're not just here from me, but here from everybody else. And that gets me to something else. We have a website. I keep talking about this On the website is a contact Travis Button. If you just got done with Team of Teams and you got additional takeaways, thoughts, arguments, considerations, whatever it is, if you think that it's worth talking about, go in there and chat me up a little bit. If you don't want to do that, go to LinkedIn, go to Facebook, go to YouTube, go to ditch the suits, find me whatever way you want to find me.

Speaker 1:

If you got an idea, man, we might be able to make an entire episode around your point and that could be the Jess moment, right, jess's moment. She's like listen. You got to listen to the ideal team player. You got to listen to me talk about this. You got to hear this. You got to read it. She did a book report. I've read it twice. I'm doing a book report now.

Speaker 1:

We implemented the takeaways. I mean, how much better do you got to get than that? You've got an idea. Let's share it with people. I'll make sure you get credit for it if that's what you want, but let's make sure that we share it with people because you might inspire other people to do stuff that, or you might be inspired. You might, you know, hearing it back, you might go holy crap. Yeah, I could do that. Let's go. You know, am I going to lock something? Who knows? You feel good right Back to Simon Sinek. When you help other people. That's where you get fulfilled, right? This is one of the ways that you can do that, also on that website. Don't forget, the website's free, so you get the book. The book list is there for free. There's a link that takes you to Amazon. I've already got the books picked out for you. The one of the reasons why I do that is because you know you can get all these different short forms of the book. You can get the, you can get a book report form, or I forget what they call it, but when the book is shortened, you can just get like a quick recap on the book.

Speaker 1:

You really need to listen or read the entire books. It is really important to get the context of everything. I know I mean, every now and then I read a book and there's just a gout awful amount of garbage in there about nothing, a lot of fluff. But sometimes the fluff sets you up to understand where it's coming from and I think that that is really really important and I don't really like a lot of books, a lot of fluff, so I tend to filter some of those books out anyway. So maybe I'm helping you a little bit with that. But you also see links that are starting to be built out with some of the stuff on YouTube that we're talking about now, some of the quotes that we're talking about.

Speaker 1:

I want to continue to bring you additional resources that reinforce everything that we're doing. They give you additional insights and go to sources so you can do some of this stuff on your own. And remember the show costs I don't know $3 a month or $25, I think. On Apple, I think if you're not Apple, you can get it through Buzzsprout. It's a slightly different fee. With that. I think it's a little bit more expensive. That just has to do with the way that the structure of the technology really is built. But that money I mean. First of all, you get the first couple of weeks free, so you try it out, you spend $3 or whatever. You commit to spending $3, binge on it, figure out if it's free, if you don't like it, cancel it. I don't care. Hopefully you get something out of it, but if you do like it, $3, not a lot to get this type of content and remember where that money is really going. I'm using that money.

Speaker 1:

I'm turning around the music to continue to produce and bring you additional material like this, but it's also going to other shows. So one of the other shows aside from Dish the Suits you know it's its own animal at this point, but one of the other shows that we've got going on is Steve, my co-host on Dish the Suits. He's got the one big thing which is all about inspirations from everyday people, and I think it's every other week or something like that, but it's a really inspiring show. You hear from real people who are figuring stuff out and they're sharing with you what they're figuring out. So it's kind of like a journey through life type of thing, and I think that that's that's really worth your time. That show is free, so you can go there, you can get that content for free, and then you've got Cutthroat College, and this is my.

Speaker 1:

I couldn't be more proud of anything I've ever done, I think, than what I think this show is going to be. And I say that because, as we're recording this episode, they are just getting ready to launch this show, and so by the time you hear this, they probably have a couple episodes posted or live. But Cutthroat College again. Free content is put together by our creative director, hector, and a very good friend of ours and colleague at C-Planning Group, kayla record, and they bring together an enormous amount of creativity and fun fused with Kayla's expertise on higher education and how higher education is a business and what you need to understand when you start to bridge into that world.

Speaker 1:

When the kids start to think about what school they're gonna go to, what major they're gonna have, whether or not they should even go to school or they should go to trade or whatnot, she does a masterful job. Communicating those things in a fun delivery method is how I would explain it. So I am so proud to see the progress that those two have made with that content and that show and that will be coming alive and to me that is just one of the biggest financial challenges that just about every family is facing this college and for them to bring a resource that is just focused on undressing that conundrum and doing it in a way that's engaging and fun. Check it out, let us know what you think on that one. That's props to them on that. So that's what we've got going on. I'm pretty excited to just we're gonna get right into intentional culture.
