It’s been a wild ride since we launched The Club Capital Leadership Podcast in December 2019. We're thrilled to announce we're ranked in the top 5% of all podcasts in the world! Our podcast has grown to over 150 episodes, and each one is jam-packed with tips and practical tools agency owners can use to grow their business.
If you've been listening to our podcast, you might have noticed some changes in November. We wanted to provide you with more content on a regular basis, so we decided to expand the show's schedule to three days a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
We're excited to have you join us in this new format! Here's what you can expect:
- Mondays – We interview industry leaders to share lessons and learnings with you.
- Wednesdays — We chat with the people behind Club Capital so you can get to know the team.
- Fridays — We provide short, impactful, and value-driven information with The Bottom Line.
We love sharing our knowledge and experiences with you, so we thought we'd share 5 of our favorite interviews with you.
We hope you enjoy them and find them as helpful as we did!
1. Leadership with Chick-fil-A’s Senior VP of High Performance Mark Miller
Are you feeling stuck?
In this episode of the The Club Capital Leadership Podcast, we talked to Mark Miller about how leaders can get unstuck.
Mark Miller, an international best-selling author, business leader, and communicator, joins Bradley to discuss advice for leaders and business owners. Skills matter, but they won’t get you out of quicksand. Choices will.
Mark shared with us his experience as an hourly employee rising through the ranks at Chick-fil-A and the lessons he learned along the way that helped him become successful. The biggest takeaway for him was learning how to be in charge of his own life by taking ownership over his choices.
Here are the four main choices you have when your business is feeling stuck:
- Confronting Reality
- Growing Capacity
- Fueling Curiosity
- Creating Change
2. General Stanley McChrystal – Risk: A User’s Guide
What does it take to be a great leader?
General Stanley McChrystal is one of the most respected and influential military leaders in recent history. He has been called “one of America’s greatest warriors,” and he led a comprehensive counter-terrorism organization that fused intelligence and operations, redefining the way military and government agencies interact.
He is the author of the bestselling leadership books My Share of the Task, Team of Teams, Leaders, and Risk: A User’s Guide which we dive into today. From his first day at West Point, to his years in Afghanistan, to his efforts helping business leaders navigate a global pandemic, McChrystal has seen how individuals and organizations fail to mitigate risk.
Why? Because they focus on the probability of something happening instead of the interface by which it can be managed.
In this episode, he shares his approach to risk management and explores how you can use that framework to improve your own organization's ability to respond effectively in times of uncertainty.
3. Weldon Long and The Prosperity Mindset
Have you ever wondered why some people are able to get what they want in life, while others are stuck on the same old hamster wheel?
Weldon Long, a former prison inmate who went on to become an internationally-recognized businessman and speaker, knows that success is all about what you think—and what you do.
In this episode, he breaks down how your quiet time rituals can set you up for success and shares how your public declarations influence your actions.
In this podcast, you'll learn:
- The path from thoughts – emotions – actions – results
- How to create habits
- What to think about in your daily quiet time
- The power of cognitive dissonance
- The importance of focus and purpose in everything you do
4. Like Clockwork with Mike Michalowicz
What if you could fix your business in one evening?
Mike Michalowicz's first book, Profit First, is used by hundreds of thousands of companies across the globe to drive profit. He is the creator of Clockwork, a powerful method to make any business run on automatic.
Mike joins The Club Capital Leadership Podcast to share his revised version of Like Clockwork: 60% revised, 100% simplified. He also shares important thoughts for business owners, like adopting the title of shareholder, how to choreograph resources, why you should take a 4-week vacation, and more.
On this episode, Bradley and Mike discuss Mike's book Fix This Next, which is all about helping businesses get clear on what they need to do next to scale. They also talk about Mike's new book Get Different, which gives readers the tools they need to stand out in a crowded market.
5. The 4 Disciplines of Execution with Jim Huling
Do you have a strategy for executing your strategy? If not, this episode is for you.
With the right strategy, you can accomplish anything. But without the right execution, your goals are just words on a page.
Jim Huling is the author of the #1 Worldwide Best-Selling Book The 4 Disciplines of Execution now in its 2nd Edition and translated into sixteen languages. In this episode, Jim Huling joins Bradley to discuss how to turn strategy into action.
You'll learn The 4 Disciplines of Execution:
- Focus - the "what"
- Act on the lead measure - the "how"
- Engagement - the "why"
- Accountability - a 20 min weekly meeting with each team member committing to what they'll do the next week
Bradley also shares how these strategies have transformed his team's workflow and accomplishments, some of the pitfalls he found along the way, and what he did about them.
