Are you sick, tiered and angry about the quality leadership we are dealing with today...particularly at a political level? Do you wish someone would step up and call the craziness out?
Our guest today is someone who decided to do something about it. Yes, I know it’s shocking but he got angry about the way things were going and decided to do something about it. My guess today is a highly in demand leadership expert, speaker and author who I am honoured to call my friend (not in the Hollywood sense) but a real friend. He is someone I highly respect as a leader of leaders.
He’s also an outspoken individual who is committed to making a difference. And as a result has decided to jump into the crazy game of politics. He has chosen to run for the US House of Representatives as a Libertarian
His slogan is "Not One. Penny. More." My mate Mr Jim Bouchard. Jim is always an outstanding guest and this time was no exception. I was just thinking how our discussion was in many ways an example of what healthy politics would look like.
Passionate, heated (not always in agreement) and fighting for a common good!
This is what the fools don't understand...We don't have to agree to like and respect each other to get along and make a difference. Check out Jim's Libertarian stance and get his free book here...I promise you'll find it highly stimulating!
Are you interesting or interested?
Are there any REAL Leaders left?
Before I answer, I have to ask another question: Do you want to hear the absolute truth?
I’m talking about the raw truth and definitely Not some buttered up, make it sound better than it is bunch of B.S. What I’m talking about is just you and me, sitting across the table from each other speaking our truth.
(A word of caution…. What you are about to read will likely piss some people off. Maybe even you!)
If you are ready to hear the absolute truth then I’m here to tell you that…
There are no REAL Leaders anymore.
Don’t believe me? Take a look around.
You and I both know that leadership in its present form is a about as effective as a Jell-O© bullet.
The problem is, we’ve been trained to believe someone is a leader because of position, title or accumulation of goodies, and it’s about time we realized; that’s not “real” leadership.
So let’s boil leadership down to its core…
Note that I said consciously. That means they aren’t following you because they have to, they’re supposed to, or for any other reason than you, their leader, are the example of the way they want to be!
So let’s take a look at some so-called leaders we have today.
Is telling the truth while climbing the corporate ladder the kiss of death?
Not according to Mindy Mackenzie.
According to Mindy having the courage to tell the truth is the ultimate solution, to scaling success mountain and having a personal life while building a career.

Dov Baron talks about the recent shooting in Orlando. Was it Islamic terrorism or a Hate Crime?
Mass shootings in the USA drive today's episode.
ORLANDO, Fla. — The gunman who went on a shooting rampage in a popular gay nightclub here shot nearly all of his victims in the first stages of the assault, then was utterly “cool and calm” while he talked by phone to law enforcement officials about further carnage, claimed allegiance to the Islamic State and praised the Boston Marathon bombers, officials said on Monday.
As officials offered new details about the worst mass shooting in American history, which left 49 people dead and 53 wounded, Chief John Mina of the Orlando Police Department said that the gunman, Omar Mateen, 29, told police negotiators — falsely, they later discovered — that he had explosives and accomplices at Pulse nightclub.
Mr. Mateen eventually made comments persuading them that “there would be an imminent loss of life,” Chief Mina said, prompting the chief to end a three-hour standoff and order the assault that killed Mr. Mateen and freed dozens of people in trapped in the club.

Muhammad Ali was an American professional boxer, widely regarded as one of the most significant and celebrated sporting figures of the 20th century.
The legendary boxer died of septic shock after several days in the hospital with a severe respiratory illness, his family said through a spokesperson. He did not suffer, they said. Ali’s daughter Hana said that her father’s heart kept beating 30 minutes after his other organs failed, “Our hearts are literally hurting,” she wrote. “But we are so happy daddy is free now.”

Technology and Succession
Until recently, the way the boss ran the business was the 'only way'. Today, that is not the case.
Dov shares the history of Kodak and it's final fate. Why do we never hear about them now? They came up with digital photography, but ignored it and were bypassed by all the digital camera makers and chips.
Reacting to what happens is not enough. Think Blockbuster Videos.
NextGen leaders have a unique view of what's coming and how to use that technology. If you don't tap into their knowledge, you could be the next Blockbuster... and not in a good way!
Unless you have been living under a rock for the past few years, you know that the recession has aggravated what already was a deteriorating relationship between employers and their employees. While things weren’t rosy before, now everyone knows someone (or has experienced it themselves!) who has been caught in layoffs, buyouts, downsizing, capsizing, and reductions in benefits, not to mention freezes on new hires, pay raises, and promotions.
And you also know the result: People are willing to abandon companies like the proverbial rats on a sinking ship because no one feels safe!
The reason isn’t rocket science. If you even suspect that the ship you are on could go down and something else comes along, there’s a good chance you’d jump ship too. Think about it. The fear doesn’t have to be based on facts; a nasty corrosive rumour can have people racing toward the exits just as easily.
A Wharton School of Business article says that most companies can expect to lose anywhere between 20 and 50 percent of their employees in any given year. Few things are more disruptive and costly to your business than an unexpected exodus from your talent pool.
