    How Purpose Drives Productivity – Harnessing the Power of Personal Identity

    in Business

    Productivity is like a windmill; the smoother, more consistent, and faster the blades turn, the more productive you tend to be. In taking charge of your productivity, there are three segments – or in windmill terminology, “blades” – that are critical. They are Psychology, Strategy and Sustainability. Without all three of these, your “productivity windmill” is underpowered; it’s just not turning optimally.

    In this episode, our focus is on Psychology and, more specifically, on the importance of purpose as a driver of productivity. Today we are privileged to share the passion that Larry Ackerman brings to the topic of identity and its role in connecting us with our purpose. He will explore with us his perspective on identity as a source of energy that drives our success and fulfillment. When we tap into our true identity, Larry believes that we are unearthing the purpose we are born with.

  • 3 Ways to foster greater accountability in you and your team

    in Business

    Accountability is about sustainability. Without accountability you have no future. Productivity is undermined. Productivity is sporadic and unpredictable.

    When I hear the word accountability it has a negative connotation like consequences are being assigned. But when we want to hold people accountable – we shouldn’t focus on after the fact but at the beginning because accountability is about ownership. Although you can assign a task or project – ownership is how it is embraced.

    My mentor taught me that a great leader doesn’t motivate people but removes the obstacles that stand between them and their motivation – that translates to accountability as well. We are all capable within the bring ownership which is in my opinion the only kind of accountability that is productive.

    Why thinking positive doesn't always get you the result.

    in Business

    Positive thinking is the best approach to misfortune or challenge in life, right? Maybe not. Our psychology is the driving force behind everything we do, but there are external variables or triggers that influence you. You can’t control them…but you can control how you respond to them, and ultimately what they mean to you. Positivity is a way to avoid a problem but not always the best way to solve a problem.

    As described in my program to accelerate productivity, Championship Psychology is not about eliminating the negative, but learning how to recognize it and adapt quickly. Awareness is power. If we understand the root cause of a challenge, we can overcome it quickly. The key is not to LIVE in the problem because if you do, your problem will continue to grow. David Corbin will share with us his techniques to confront, examine and fix problems.
