Episode 208 – 2016 Speakers Roundtable / audio

2016 Speakers Roundtable

Mary Kelly, Jason Kotecki, Jessica Pettitt and Thom Singer (@marykellyspeaks, @escapeadulthood, @jesspettitt and @thomsinger on Twitter) join host Craig Price for his 2016 Speakers Roundtable. Each year, Craig gathers the best minds in the speaking industry to sit down during the National Speakers Association’s annual convention (this year in hell…I mean Phoenix.) to discuss the state of the industry, what new things are happening, what issues are affecting the speaker population and whatever else may pop up. This year, Craig sat 4 talented past guests to discuss marketing and the resulting conversation covered so much more. They discussed capitalism, charity, tapping into your talents, differentiating yourself, referring other speakers and the hottest of topics…when during the podcast would Jessica swear. These panels are always the most requested episodes of Reality Check and this year is no exception.  Celebrate Craig’s birthday by enjoying a gift he gives to himself and to you…his annual speakers roundtable.

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!
