092 – Ben Wood – The Four Agreements – Personal Development Series

David and Ben Wood 2Today David has a very special guest; his 14 year old son, Ben. Those of you who tuned in last week, heard David share a very private and emotional moment, when he discovered that his son had started to lie to him. Today David shares more about how they managed to resolve the problem. Ben tells us about a book that he read to better understand the situation, and improve himself and his life.

The book is called “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz. It is a practical guide to personal freedom; it is about 4 agreements that you need to make with yourself to live a better and happier life. The 4 agreements are:

1) Be impeccable with your word: First with yourself, and then with others.
2) Don’t take anything personally.
3) Don’t make assumptions.
4) Always do your best.

David takes Ben through these agreements and asks what he thinks they mean. Ben’s most important take away from this book was: Always tell the truth, no matter what. That sounds like something we’ve been hearing from David himself for quite a while: “Tell the truth all the time with compassion.” :)

089 – Simon Sinek – Why Good Leaders Make You Feel Safe – Personal Development Series

Simon SinekToday’s show is about a very important and deep topic! Today David talks about “Trust” and it’s value, “Truth” and it’s liberating powers.  He talks about the Power of trust to make us feel safe! On that topic, David plays us bits of Simon Sinek’s speeches where he talks about trust and leadership. Simon talks about the military and companies, and explains how “Leadership is a Choice not a Rank!” And what makes people want to follow one person vs. another regardless of their rank and/or authority, only because those are the ones that have “Chosen” to look after the people around them.  

A trained ethnographer and author of Start With Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action, Simon Sinek has held a life-long curiosity for why people and organizations do the things they do. Sinek is an optimist. He believes in a bright future and our ability to build it together.

Described as “a visionary thinker with a rare intellect,” Sinek teaches leaders and organizations how to inspire people. With a bold goal to help build a world in which the vast majority of people go home everyday feeling fulfilled by their work, Sinek is leading a movement to inspire people to do the things that inspire them.

He is best known for discovering the Golden Circle and popularizing the concept of Why, the purpose, cause or belief that drives every one of us. The Golden Circle is a naturally occurring pattern, grounded in the biology of human decision making, that explains why we are inspired by some people, leaders, messages and organizations over others.

Sinek shares his optimism with all who will listen. He speaks around the globe and has commented for local and national press, including The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Houston Chronicle, FastCompany, CMO Magazine, NPR and BusinessWeek. Sinek is a regular contributor to The Huffington Post, writes his own blog, simonsinek.com and makes regular guest appearances on MSNBC’s Your Business, among others.
