Bold Business Podcast

Bold Business Podcast

Our roles as leaders constantly evolve, as does our business – whether from changes in the market, adjusting course to stay on the company vision or even to the number of hats worn. Problems reveal themselves when we understand people and read situations well. However, sometimes the chatter within our own mind, expectations of others and our own limiting thoughts … add complexity. Here on the Voice of Bold Business Radio we talk about skills to ask better questions, solve problems and take action. The result is effectively handling: tough situations; changing culture; adding new products or markets; setting goals; reviewing people; evaluating business; setting priorities; building strategy; and more. You will find reflections on what worked within real situations … and what didn’t. You will find ideas discussed that apply to your situation and spark curiosity. These conversations deliver possibility. In every program, we acknowledge there is more than one way to reach the end goal. Action matters. Bold Business includes strategy, ideas, leadership, promotion, operations, prioritizing, confidence, problem-solving, solutions, communication, marketing, values, goals, efficiency, responsibility, sustainability, accountability, manners, rules of engagement, vision, mission, business, transitions, management, crisis management, character, soft skills, core competencies, tactical skills, what works (and doesn’t) – all from Business Advocate Jessica Dewell. Transcripts, highlights and immediately useful show notes are available for each episode. Go to VoiceOfBoldBusiness.com for show archives. The Voice of Bold Business is brought to you by Red Direction.

Forget viral. Forget overnight success. Forget shortcuts. Are you willing to live in a tent to chase your dreams? 

The startup failure rate is staggering. A fundamental quality for success is the readiness to acknowledge and embrace your weaknesses as you shape your vision, build a team, and engage in the right work.  Curiosity and, importantly, clear communication are also vital to this process. Even when...

With a slight shift in thinking, you can become an even more global citizen. Since technology connects us more than ever, it is easier to think beyond our local community, take ethical action to help and commit to using our advantages to help others.

Business longevity results from tenacity, small wins that compound, and saying “no” decisively. When you shape your decisions with nonnegotiables providing constraints, there is less to evaluate with regard to removing overwhelm and freeing up time to spend doing the real deep work necessary to build a thriving business. 

 

Effective communication is necessary to maximize the compounding effect of your cho...

Leading your team requires a variation of the skills you’ve developed to lead yourself. Communication becomes exponentially important — not only to create expectations about how to do the work, but also to celebrate success and meet each person where they are at (i.e., so they understand their goals align with the company’s). Tim Fortescue, Founder at 40 Watt Coaching, talks about knowing what you will do to achieve yo...
