Are you winning the game of Two Truths and a Lie? You play every day and don’t even know it. Detecting lies is crucial in business and life. Do you know if your clients really like your proposal? Do they like the job you did? Are they telling you the truth about their budget? Are they telling you all of their needs? Are the people you’re interviewing inflating their resume? And, most importantly, did your kids eat those chocolate donuts that were on the counter or did the dog? This program uses videos from current events to demonstrate techniques. To apply the learning, we’ll play Two Truths and a Lie.

Objectives:

  • Identify how to instantly tell if someone is lying.
  • Explain which lies are important.

Episode 223 – Manley Feinberg – Reaching Your Next Summit / audio

Manley Feinberg

Manley Feinberg (@manleyf on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss his new leadership book Reaching Your Next Summit!

Not everyone has the same leadership experiences or gains insights from the same activities. As Craig likes to say in his own leadership program “Leading from All Sides” there is no “one way”. Rock climbing is something Craig wouldn’t run out and do. Or even be in the shape to do! But that doesn’t mean he can’t learn from others who have. As an avid climber, Manley teaches leadership through his stories culminating from a lifetime of adventure through 25 countries, to over 400 outdoor destinations. Craig and Manley discuss why you must declare your current climb, master the restart and which vertical lesson is helping Manley the most.

You can learn more about Manley at http://verticallessons.com and get his new book “Reaching Your Next Summit! 9 Vertical Lessons for Leading with Impact” at amazon.com

Episode 222 – Maximiliano Hernandez and Christina Wren / audio

Superhero movies

Maximiliano Hernandez (@maxitois4real on twitter) and Christina Wren (@ChristinaSWren on twitter) join host Craig Price to discuss their roles in superhero movies.

It’s a crossover episode! Craig’s latest podcast project Matinee Heroes spotlighted the movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier and included half of the interview from Marvelous Nerd Year’s Eve with Max (they’re close enough pals to use shorter names) but Christina also was dishing out wisdom too. So why waste such good stuff? Craig wouldn’t, of course. So here is their interview in its entirety.  The three have a great discussion on how Marvel’s (Max appeared in Thor, Avengers and other Marvel projects) process compares to DC’s (Christina appeared in Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman), how they found out they were going to be in these huge blockbuster movies and what it’s like meeting Robert Redford.  They also take questions from the audience as well.

Be sure to check out Matinee Heroes each week! What is Matinee Heroes? It is a podcast dedicated to exploring hero cinema – from adventurers, heroes, to superheroes; from Jedi to buddy cops; from the Wild West, to the distant past, to futures both hopeful and dystopian, from ancient lands to the deepest reaches of outer space. In a time when we need heroes more than ever, Alan and Craig will try to understand just what makes our cinematic heroes tick, and how we can use that heroism in our everyday life.
