We’ve got a fun Coffee with Chris episode for you today!

These two gents have some great stories that I know you will relate to.
And if you need more info on creating an amazing company culture I’ve got my Inc Magazine 5 Part Audio Lesson for you to download for FREE. It’s down below. We cover a lot of ground (and coffee) on this one – so buckle up! Also, to all the Dillano’s folks listening…why are you torturing me with the names of the coffee?!

Stop Worrying About Other People’s Opinions

November 19, 2014 | By | 18 Comments">18 Comments


Stop Worrying

So today we are talking about something that comes up quite a bit in our LifePlan sessions – Worrying about other people’s opinions.
Are you looking to other people for affirmation and approval?
Are you finding your self worth in this?

A lot of folks are and it can be crippling to your life.

I constantly see incredibly gifted people  that are so concerned and worried about following rules and for them it’s based on what other people will think of them if they don’t do it.

Their self-worth is in following the rules and when they don’t follow… their world starts to crumble because their world revolves around what other people think of them.

Let me know your thoughts on this one!

Question and Answer – Team Members Calling In Sick

November 13, 2014 | By | 4 Comments">4 Comments

Team members calling in sick

We’ve got a fun topic for today’s show: How do you handle employees who keep calling in sick?

This listener question came to us from Bill who is a manager of about 15 folks.
Here’s his situation: “…about every 2 weeks an employee is consistently calling out sick, at what point do I say “that’s it, I’ve had enough”?

GOOD QUESTION BILL!
(fyi…we’re sending you a free DISC personality test for sending in your question)

Now you should know that with employees calling in sick I’m more concerned about the person than I am the business. I want to discover how I can help that person. What’s going on in their life? What’s really causing all the absence?

But…if I sense that an employee is abusing their sick day then I must act to protect my companies culture.[/social]

Today’s show is sure to be a doozy!

Question: How do you handle this issue? Do you agree or disagree with me?

10 Signs You’re a People Pleaser [Podcast]

10 Signs You're a people pleaser

 

 

Are you afraid of other peoples opinions of you? Do you always seem to attract folks who need rescuing?
Well…you just might be a people pleaser.

Quite a few people who come through LifePlan struggle with being a people pleaser and finding their worth in the acceptance of other people. It can control them.

When your life always revolves around being a people pleaser you actually end up losing life. It robs you of your authentic self
and it all comes from a persons root system. It’s the stuff that’s deeply ingrained in you.

In today’s show I look at 10 signs you may be a people pleaser.

Here’s they are:

1. You end up doing things for others in hopes that they will do things for you.
2. You become frustrated when people don’t love you back.
3. You’re guarded and you don’t let people in so that you don’t get hurt.
4. You’re always afraid of other peoples opinions of you.
5. You feel you are worth less than other people.
6. You attract takers and people who always need to be rescued.
7. You always apologize for things that you do. You blame yourself.
8. You become a victim of constructive criticism.
9. You neglect you.
10. You let opportunities and life pass you by.

If that list sounds a lot like you and you found yourself saying, “That’s me!”, you need to start the conversation about LifePlan.
Your worth is not dependent on someone else’s opinion of you. It’s dependent on God and what God thinks is really all that’s important. Find your significance in Him – He’s crazy about you!

Question: Without naming names, do you know someone who is a people pleaser? (Maybe yourself)  Which sign would you say is most prominent for them?

Think You Know Your Customer? [Podcast]

November 10, 2014 | By | 4 Comments">4 Comments

Think You Know Your Customer?

Today we are talking about knowing your customers and Mr. Joel Fortner jumps on the mic to talk a little marketing. (and butcher the outro to the podcast)

In case you’ve been under a rock the past few weeks, we just came out of a product launch for the new coaching programs.
We discovered a couple things that blew us away.

But real quick –  a special shout-out to the new mastermind and coaching folks.
I’m honored and excited to dive in – your life and business is about to explode!

Back to the podcast…so, we asked you guys during the launch to send us your questions and YOU DID!
Here’s the top question we got: “Will Chris really work with me?”

Well heck yes!!!

On this episode Joel and I talk about why this question kept being asked and the importance of knowing your customers.

You can think your marketing is communicating one thing…and actually be communicating something entirely different.

Also, Joel mentions a few questions to help you better discover who your customers are and what they value.
