Tim Ferris talks about the idea of leaders having many mini retirements over the course of their career. Jim Placio did just this by taking break for a year from his mega successful career in finance to fully examine his life.
After Jim had open heart surgery, he swore that he’d make radical changes in his life in the direction of consciousness. Yet as we know, wanting to change and willing to change are two different things.
Through the support of his CLG Forum and 1-1 coaching with our team, Jim shifted from wanting to willing. He was finally to interrupt his pattern of telling people what they wanted to hear and stepped into integrity with himself, others, and life.
Feedback Sessions to Practice Radical Candor After a deal is complete all team members spend 30 minutes giving open and honest feedback about the following, especially encouraging junior team members to take the opportunity to fully express themselves first (frustrations, appreciations, etc):
What didn’t go well during the deal
What did go well during the deal
Areas where we could improve for the next deal
Team appreciation and recognition
Team members are encouraged to work with an external coach to support their effectiveness.
