No One Should Own Your Tomorrow Except You

No One Should Own Your Tomorrow Except You

By John Frederick Furth

This is a series of podcasts that include interviews with people who have succeeded because they are leaders. Not because they have an important title but because they have the same power, foresight and commitment as the greatest CEOs and Presidents.

Some of them lead organizations - large and small. Some are the best in their field and others have pioneered new ideas. All of them are making the world a better place.

Interesting in discussing how John can help you achieve that kind of success?

Can You Hear me Now?

Can You Hear me Now?

My podcast from two weeks ago, “Creating a Space for Listening,” included tips, techniques and mindsets that master listeners use to:

  • Really hear what is being said to them.
  • Create a space for themselves to understand.
  • Recognize how their own personal filters and those of the speaker color what's being said.

This time Larry Reines and I discuss what it takes to become the kind of person everybody listens to – in 1-2-1 conversations, meetings and in groups. Among other things, we talk about...

  • Vocal techniques that will make your voice stronger and easier to hear.
  • How to know whether the person or persons you're talking with are actually listening.
  • Adjusting accordingly so you will not just be heard but also understood.

Create a Space for Listening

Create a Space for Listening

Listening goes well beyond simple hearing. It's about creating a space in your head to process what you hear and increase your understanding of what's being said. The very best listeners also take into account the person who is talking - how their perceptions, unconscious biases and personal agendas color what they tell you.

In this thought-provoking conversation John Furth and Larry Reines discuss:

  • What makes listening so difficult for most people.
  • Why the best leaders are also the best listeners.
  • Some experience-based tips to get your started on improving your listening skills.

Business Without Borders

Business Without Borders

My guest, Angela Snowball-Thompson, is a true believer in a global economy where there are as few barriers as possible for companies looking to establish themselves overseas.

But she also knows that the biggest threat to success abroad isn't taxes, tariffs and other protectionist measures of foreign governments. Rather, it is executives' often poor understanding of the differences in cultural, behavioral and communication styles and business norms.

Executives who make the effort, however, come closer to having a Business Without Borders.
