It is a new year. It's a new decade. Welcome to 2020! With these moments on the calendar, there's always the hope of great change. But the reality is the movement of dates on the calendar doesn't create change, something else has to happen. Very little change occurs until you make a significant change in the way you see the world. And this is the topic of this week’s podcast episode.

The Bill Perry Show

Ho, ho, hold on…you don’t like Christmas? I understand this season can be painful for some. It can be a season where depression and suicide rates are on the increase. Or perhaps, as you get older the events of Christmas don’t match the warm, sentimental memories you carry for the season. Today, I want to offer you a message of kindness and hope.

Do you know how much it costs an organization when employees are not engaged? It can be very costly to the bottom line. Employee engagement is a vital piece to any organization and effective coaching on the part of your management and leadership can be a solution to engaging employees.

The Bill Perry Show

The holiday season is my favorite time of year. I grew up in a great family situation where holidays were marked with extended family time together with good food and great family engagements. However, there is a lot of pressure attached to the holidays. This year, I would encourage you to take a step back and relieve some of that stress during this busy season.

It’s my pleasure to have my friend, Mike Kim, on the show this week. Mike is a marketing strategist, and his philosophy is, “Marketing isn’t about closing a sale. It’s about opening a relationship.” As we move through this discussion, you will hear that if you don’t love yourself, you’re not going to manage any other relationship around you.

This week we are introducing a new concept to the show in which I bring in trusted friends and advisors who have had a positive impact on my life and who, I believe, can be beneficial to you as well. It is my pleasure to welcome Kevin Monroe to the show. Kevin is a business consultant, podcast host, and, as he likes to highlight, a husband, father, and grandfather!  

LEADERSHIP IS CONNECTING AND BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS

Connecting with other people is key to moving forward. It is so interesting to see how, through connecting with others, you ultimately connect with more and more people as your message gets out there. Through leadership and the relationships you build, amazing things can happen in life and also help foster a healthy team in the workplace. Kevin details exactly how this shows up in his business and in his life, during our conversation together. 

GRATITUDE OPENS YOUR PERSPECTIVES

Gratitude expands your field of vision so that you can see life and the problems you face from different angles, and build a deeper appreciation for it all. As Kevin says, “Gratitude gets you out of the pit and into possibilities.” Focusing on gratitude is changing lives. Our thoughts are what we bring to life. If we look at things for which we are grateful, even while bad things are happening, we start to see the good and focus on it. The good things were there all along, but we miss seeing them by not focusing on the things for which we are grateful. Gratitude is an attitude or mindset, and when you are a member of a community of others who are expressing gratitude, it helps to spur you on.

Episode Highlights:

  • Relationships are essential to moving forward on your journey through life
  • What the gratitude challenge is and the impact it is already having in just a few months 
  • Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly - sometimes you have to take an idea and run with it
  • People who have taken gratitude into the office have seen incredible differences in their office environments and employee retention
  • The challenge of looking at your life and noting something you are grateful for today
  • The line from the book “Surviving to Thriving: The 10 Laws of Grateful Leadership” that changed Kevin’s life


Until next time, lead well! 

Bill
