Listener Question: The stuff you talk about is pretty obvious, isn't it? Often the things we talk about seem obvious, but the problem is they are not common language! Our work is simplifying common leadership problems and providing a common language that can make tackling problems and scaling solutions across our organizations easier! We cannot diagnose, improve, or pass on principles we cannot articulate with common, simple, language!

This week I am taking a break from the regular format to simply say thank you for everything you and your families do to advance the cause of LIBERATION across the world. My family and I wish you and yours a wonderful thanksgiving, no matter what version of the holiday you choose to celebrate.  I hope that you have the opportunity to take time away from work, free your mind from the burdens of day-to-day life and show the people around just how much they truly mean to you.

Listener Question: I believe in fighting for the highest possible good of others, but how do I stop feeling like such a hypocrite? Hypocrisy is not having high standards and making mistakes. Hypocrisy is not struggling to attain perfection, rather it is holding others to a standard you make no effort to attain yourself. Owning our mistakes, our imperfections, and our inadequacies shows our humanity and creates an environment where our teams can fail forward without fear!

Listener Question: No one has ever done this for me, how can I be expected to do it for anyone else? When we experience hardship, it can be difficult to break the cycle, especially when we have no model for what right looks like. Breaking the cycle and changing our family trees means identifying what went wrong, what we wish would have happened, and closing the skills, emotional intelligence, or self-awareness gaps we have!
