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 193 – Ty Bennett – Partnership is the New Leadership / audio

partnership

Ty Bennett (@TyBennett on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss his book Partnership is the New Leadership. Leadership is something many people want to have but often their style can be less effective than they want. Benevolent dictators and force of personality can only work with a few. How can leaders be more effective? By partnering with their employees, of course. Craig and Ty discuss how leadership with short term goals can reap quick rewards but have long-term side effects (few that are good), how commitment between employee and employer is a two-way street and how they both agree that motivation is overrated.

Episode 191 – Mary Kelly PhD – Why Leaders Fail / audio

Why Leaders Fail

Mary Kelly, Phd (@marykellyspeaks on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss her book “Why Leaders Fail“. There are plenty of books on how to lead but they often leave out the most important part: What happens when what you’re doing isn’t working?.  Thankfully, Mary and her writing partner for this book Peter Stark (no known relation to Tony or Ned) decided to write “Why Leaders Fail: 7 Prescriptions to Success” to help understand common themes to leadership failure. Craig and Mary talk about being popular vs. being a leader, having vision, why Ted Williams was a great leader as a player but not so much as a manager and how corporations need more empathy. A 20 year naval officer, Mary understand leadership and with a PhD in economics she know business. Add the two and you have a powerful combination you need to listen to if you want to improve your leadership skills!
