Dr. Nate Regier believes wholeheartedly in the power and importance of healthy conflict communication—so much so that he built an entire business around it. He’s the co-founder and CEO of Next Element, which works with organizations around the world to help them see conflict as an opportunity to connect with their team members rather than a negative source of unwanted drama. Dr. Regier’s secret weapon is something he calls “compassionate accountability.” And he credits it for increasing trust, productivity and engagement one conversation at a time. Join us to find out why compassionate accountability is such a game changer and how you can bring it to your own organization.

While the thought of having difficult conversations may fill most of us with dread, business social scientist Joseph Grenny says avoiding conflict is a big mistake. In fact, he says such conversations are absolutely crucial to an organization’s health and overall success. Sure, the stakes are high—and the tension may feel even higher—but ignoring incompetence or bad behavior only creates alienation and a culture of mistrust. Luckily, Joseph shares practical ways to defuse the situation and achieve a successful resolution. Also joining us is John Felkins, Director of All Access at Ramsey Solutions, with a few dos and don’ts for handling tough conversations.

If you use social media to market your business (and really, who doesn’t?), lifestyle and business expert Chalene Johnson says the best way to build your tribe is through something she calls “curiosity marketing.” The goal is to first position yourself as a trusted friend and give your customers just enough information to pique their interest and get them asking questions. That curiosity allows you to engage your customers in an authentic conversation, which then helps create a relationship that, with any luck, leads to a sale. Tune in to find out Chalene’s three golden rules of doing it well. Also joining us are Revelation Real Estate owners Chuck and Angela Fazio, who credit the EntreLeadership Master Series for helping them completely transform their culture and reach $1.4 billion in sales.

Bryan and Shannon Miles, cofounders of the wildly successful virtual support provider BELAY, have done what many would think impossible: create a unified and thriving culture among a team made up entirely of telecommuters. Turns out you don’t need to work in the same building—or in some cases, even the same state—to foster excellent communication, unparalleled accountability, and good morale. In lieu of a corporate office, Bryan and Shannon have decided to invest in their team instead of infrastructure. If eight years in business, 60 employees, and 500 contractors are any indication, it looks like they’re doing something really right. Tune in to find out how to do the same in your organization, virtual or not. Also joining us is All Access member Renee Daggett, president of AdminBooks, to highlight what you need to know now about the new tax bill.

When it comes to shaping a healthy and vibrant culture, Patty McCord—co-creator of the now viral (think over 12 million views) Netflix Culture deck—says most companies are doing it all wrong. In fact, she contends that commonly held “best practices” like performance reviews or limits on vacation time are surprisingly ineffective when it comes to keeping people motivated and engaged at work. Instead, during her 14-year tenure at Netflix, Patty found that people are far more productive when guided by their own logic and common sense rather than antiquated HR policies. Join us to find out how to create a culture of high performance and profitability in your own business, stat.

Ever since taking over his family’s business at age 25, Charles Koch has been guided by one singular mantra: Success is one of the biggest enemies of success. Those powerful words have inspired the chairman and CEO of Koch Industries to keep pushing, keep experimenting, keep improving—a state he likes to call “continual transformation.” Koch’s ironclad belief that there is always a way to do it better has helped grow the company into a $100 billion enterprise—one that prides itself, first and foremost, on creating unparalleled value for its customers. And that’s something any business, regardless of size, can aspire to. Join us to hear Charles explain why complacency is never an option and what you need to do to outpace your competition.

We all know the creative process is unpredictable at best, but if you ask best-selling author Todd Henry, the one thing you can control every single time is the way you are guiding that work as the leader.

After years spent traveling the globe working with top CEOs, world-renowned leadership coach and best-selling author Dr. Marshall Goldsmith has discovered a universal truth: We all make mistakes. And oftentimes, even the seemingly inconsequential ones (for instance, not saying thank you enough) can undermine the most skilled, charismatic leaders. Luckily, there are four behaviors you can adopt right now that can help put you on a more successful—and likely more profitable—leadership path. And though Marshall’s advice is simple and straightforward, don’t expect real change to come overnight without some major commitment and determination on your end. As Marshall likes to say, the challenge in life is not the understanding; it’s the doing. Tune in to find out how to make the most of Marshall’s proven and practical methods in your own business. Also, our very own Armando Lopez, Executive Director of Human Resources, joins us to answer your questions.

One of the most common misconceptions we all have about leadership is that it’s the same thing as authority, according to lead pastor of North Point Community Church, Clay Scroggins. During his 10-year tenure at the Alpharetta, GA-based megachurch, Clay has learned that nothing could be further from the truth. Instead, he has come to the conclusion that the real currency of leadership has nothing at all to do with being in charge but rather with influence. And that’s really great news, because every single one of us has the ability to be influential. The key is first figuring out who you are. Join us to find out where to go from there so you can start leading today.
