    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.

    in Business

    We all have the same amount of time. Why is it that some people seems to effortlessly successful while others cant get out of their own way? What sets the champions from the rest of the pack. Yes it is the skills they built over the years and the hard work and determination but what is behind those choices and what keeps them from choking in the high pressure game environment.


    The secret is in the championship psychology separating those that create their success and those who keep themselves from their success.

    Culture Eats Strategy for Breakfast!

    in Business

    One of my favorite quotes from Peter Drucker is "culture eats strategy for breakfast every time"! Most people think the key to their businesses success is their strategy. The fact is the key to the success of any organization is the culture. There is a sequence that makes the difference in creating long pasting success and it starts with what I call championship psychology. Championship psychology represents culture. It is the first blade on your productivity windmill. How you manage these drivers as an individual or as a group will determine your success with creating winning strategies and sustainable result. It is my experience that culture can be broken down into 4 components that apply to you and your team. To understand more about my perspective pick up a copy of my book the productivity zone. Today we are going to learn the following



    Why organizational culture is a strategic and financial issue, not an HR topic.
    How culture develops and what you can do to take more control.
    Why behavior matters more than values.

    Laughter is the best Medicine

    in Business

    Would we be nore productive if we laughed more? I dare say we would. Happiness psychology tells us we cannot be sad when we are smiling. Smiling creates a chemical reaction that makes us feel good. When we feel good, we access the best part of ourselves.

    Organization is both mental and physical

    in Business

    Organization isn’t just blocking out the clutter in your workspace but also blocking out the clutter in your mental state.  All too often we are quick to grab a tool, filing system or look for some quick fix. We don’t take enough thinking time to organize our thoughts and gain clarity around what drives us mentally so we can set up our environment to support that.
