We're baaaaaaack! Gabe Lezra and Josh Zeitlin are back with the first episode of the 2015-2016 Managing Madrid podcast season. Real Madrid made some moves during the offseason--though not as many as some would have liked. The guys are here to chat coaching changes--really, Rafa Benítez?! ¯\_(?)_/¯ --player acquisitions (from Asensio and Vallejo to Kovacic and Danilo and even style changes. They're both worried about the direction the club is headed, though they are optimistic about some of the acquisitions. Listen on to find out exactly how they feel about certain aspects of Real Madrid's circumstances.
The guys then transition, chatting about Madrid's disappotinting 0-0 draw to open the season against Sporting Gijón. What went wrong for los blancos? Is this just an anomalous result? Or is it the beginning of a worrying tred for Rafa Benítez (ugh ¯\_(?)_/¯) and company? And what exactly is going on with the offense?
We apologize for the timing of the show--ideally we would have gotten it up earlier, but we've had some technical issues. Additionally, we're sorry for not being around this summer--Gabe took the New York State Bar Exam, the qualifying test for becoming an attorney in New York, and Josh applied for and was accepted into Medical school. So yeah, not the easiest couple months. On the bright side, this is the first of a two-part Managing Madrid Podcast, and in the second part we'll talk David De Gea, Madrid's crushing victory over Betis, and the magic of James Rodriguez.
Gabe Lezra, Josh Zeitlin and Bozz recap Real Madrid's disappointing 2014-2015 campaign, taking a look at each part of the team--from the underwhelming defense, to the sporadically brilliant midfield and forward lines. What went wrong for Real Madrid this year? What went right? Who is to blame? All this and more this week.
In addition, the guys take a bunch of listener questions and reflect on the state of the club going forward. Will Rafa Benitez be a good manager for the Whites? And what areas should Madrid target in the next transfer window?
And finally, they reflect on the recent FIFA implosion, with some appropriately vitriolic words for (now ex-!!!!) FIFA president Sepp Blatter.
Managing people can be a difficult task. Doing it gracefully can seem nearly impossible some days. Surprising though, even worse than the difficulty of managing people is the trap of doing it all ourselves.
We need to remember the importance of letting go. As an entrepreneur it is so easy to always see every task as being something we have to do. The truth though is much different. All distractions are equal and in your business the distraction of busyness can be the worst. We need to learn how to identify not only our strengths but also our weaknesses. Then as we have said many times, we need to STOP DOING WHAT YOU SUCK AT! Let your brilliance shine and allow others a place where their brilliance can shine as well.
We need to discover how to assign people where they will shine and then lead them with grace. It is our job as the owner of our company and the CEO of our business to create an environment of empowerment. By allowing our people to shine and creating a graceful place for accomplishment we receive a business that is not only successful, but is more importantly THRIVING!
Join host Steve Kidd and his special guest Michael James. Michael spent years as a general contractor, so he knows how to manage people and projects. Michael also went on an incredible journey of self-discovery that has changed his life. Michael shares with what he learned about himself and how that can help you and your business to:
Be open to asking for help
Giving Grace as we Manage people
Assigning tasks to the right people and empowering their success
Gabe Lezra, Bozz and Mike Platania are back to chat everything Real Madrid! On this week's episode, the guys chat about Madrid's uninspiring draw with Málaga at the Bernabéu. Is this draw indicative of something larger--a pattern of focusing too much on Cristiano Ronaldo's scoring in detriment to the team? Or maybe a general lack of offensive creativity?--or is it merely bad luck, a blip in an otherwise strong beginning of the season?
Additionally, the guys break down Rafa's tactical choices agaisnt Malaga, and discuss what the Spanish coach should tell the players after that match. They geek out about Luka Modric and his countryman Mateo Kovacic, and conclude with some previews--first Malmo (just kidding, they don't actually have much to say about that) and then Atleti.

On March 27, 2014 I wrote and posted the article What is An Empath and Are You One on my website. It was picked up by numerous on-line blogs and magazines and read by thousands, many of whom recognized themselves as being Empaths and wrote to me. Most people expressed the difficulties they have in life managing all the energies they absorb.
I started the Facebook page, Empath Society in October 2014 so everyone would have a place to gather, meet, support each other, and gain knowledge. We now have 1,500 likes.
I have done my best trying to help, but I am not an expert in this - just an Empath like everyone else is. On October 23, 2015 I had a guest named Alison Kay, Ph.D. on A Fine Time for Healing.
Alison is an energy healer/shifter of 18 years, working with multiple modalities, nicknamed "the lightening bolt" due to the power of her energy healings and clearings with clients around the globe. Alison has agreed (and is very excited) to teach us all how to live life with these extreme sensitivities.
She is here today to do just that. She also has some exciting news for all of us that we will greatly benefit from, so be sure to listen.
Alison will tell us all about a tele-call series she will be offering to sensitives. The link to this series is http://www.alisonjkay.com/sensitives-teleseries

It's part 2, and Gabe Lezra, Bozz and Mike Platania are back to break down everything that wasn't mentioned in the first preview episode! Gabe admits that he was a bit harsh on Rafa Benitez ¯\_(?)_/¯ in the first show--but he won't retract it!--and allows Bozz and Mike to push back on some of his criticism. That being said, the overwhelming negativity isn't entirely transformed into positivity, however, as the guys break down a bunch of Benitez's mis-steps, the De Gea fiasco, and Madrid's prospects moving forward.
Transitioning, the guys take a look at Madrid's 5-0 thrashing of Real Betis in the Bernabéu, praising James Rodriguez, Gareth Bale and the entire squad for looking very strong. Additionally, they get down and dirty talking about the strategy the club is taking, the transfer policy, and generally the ideas going into the club this season.
They end by taking your questions, breaking down many of the angles listeners brought up on Twitter and via email.
Tuesday, November 24, 2015, is about many things that we should be thankful for, including the ongoing struggle to make water not just an issue to focus on, but on solutions that are being ignored by those who can do something about it, but prefer to just talk about it, if even that. That is until the PEOPLE get involved, and they are! We'll also spend a considerable amount of time to discuss Syria refugees, but not as radicals or terrorists, but as war-torn victims who have been largely forgotten in too many ways. Time to engage, people. Yes, be thankful, but be engaged now!
