Dan Rockwell, Leadership Freak, is on the podcast today. Dan drops a few leadership bombs on us during our chat on coaching and creating a coaching culture.

In this show you will learn:

  •  How Dan “fell into” coaching.
  • Why  hire a coach?
  • The “aha” moments of coaching.
  • Why the best coaches focus on the person.
  • Dan’s goals for coaching
  • The coaching style of leadership and it’s challenges.
  • How you move leaders to a coaching culture.
  • Micro Coaching Sessions

The bottom line is if you are looking to grow…hire a coach. It doesn’t matter if it’s business, golf, fitness or fashion. Get a coach and you instantly get the knowledge that comes with it.
The goal is to move the ball down the field and a coach makes sure that happens.

Ask Chris: KRA Questions and Breaking Into Public Speaking

KRA Questions and Public Speaking

Subscribe to the podcast: iTunes Stitcher Radio SoundCloud

Chris is answering your questions today! In this episode, Chris covers personal finance, KRA’s and how to become a public speaker.

The Key Results Area sample pack is one of the most popular downloads on the site. If you haven’t checked it out, it’s a great free resource to help you get started with your KRA. Do you feel like you’re winning in your role? Does leadership think you’re winning in your role?

When it comes to your KRA, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Your KRA should outline the key areas that will make us, the company, win
  • The details aren’t the key result area and when you’re task saturated, you’re not winning
  • The more you add to your KRA, the less you can win

Chris also covers how to build a platform that enables you to share information and create a demand for public speaking. Bottom line, public speaking and sharing a message can’t be about you. It’s about what you can do or share to help other people.

For more information on public speaking, check out 5 Tips on Speaking Without Fear and his Public Speaking Tips Q&A video:

As always, we love hearing from you! If you’ve got a question for Chris, go to http://chrislocurto.com/askchris/ and you might be featured on the next episode!

Can you change your personality style?

Subscribe to the podcast: iTunes Stitcher Radio SoundCloud

I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas – we sure did!
Now it’s time to plan for 2015. You’ve checked out Michael Hyatt’s goal setting program right? Hmm…go, right now, do it. It’s the best program I’ve seen for goal setting. I endorse it fully!
Go here to get started: http://bestyearever.me/chrislocurto.

So we have been getting a flood of calls on the  ChrisLoCurto.com/AskChris  page. Some are awesome. Some are creepy. Just kidding!
Thanks to everyone who took the time to leave a message. Stay tuned, we will get to all of them throughout the coming weeks.

Todays question is on changing your personality style. Can you really do it?

As an entrepreneur you have to wear a ton of hats. And as a solopreneur even more hats!
Sometimes you have to suck it up and do the hard work required to grow your business…even if it’s not “in your personality” to do it. #tufflove

This is a great one for all the entre’s in the audience.

Let me know in the comments how you have had to stretch your personality style for a season so you could grow your business, or grow yourself.

In todays podcast you will learn:

  • What happens when you try to change your personality style
  • If you can “really” ever change your personality style
  • How you prepare when you have to leave your personality comfort zone
  • Why 18 months is all the time you have
  • What happened when Chris didn’t follow his own advice when hiring

AND remember… for the month of December we are giving away a FREE DISC Personality Style Test to EVERYONE who leaves us an iTunes Review. EVERYONE!!!

So go to iTunes, leave a review, send an email to keith@chrislocurto.com, reference your review with your name and we’ll make sure you get your FREE Test.
