In this episode:

  • Mike and Landi stress the importance of consistency in one's actions and the need to adapt to change.
  • While 45% of leaders prefer working from home, they are 33% more effective when they are in the office.
  • The lack of trust can lead to problems such as decreased efficiency and decreased customer loyalty. In order to build trust within an organization, it is important for different departments to communicate with each other and to have a trusting relationship.
  • In order to prepare leaders for war, you need to focus on resilience skills, which are essential in any type of war.
  • Leaders need to be aware of the war raging within themselves and learn how to be resilient in order to survive.
  • There is always going to be noise in the world. The important thing is to control our attitude and focus.

Key Takeaways:

  • Trust is a key condition for success in any business
  • To face war, build on your resilience
  • COVID-19 was out of our control, but we could still control our attitude and focus

Tweetable Quotes:

“In the past two years, we've noticed working from home, the incredible frustration around it because your intent gets completely muffled.” - Landi Jac

“When you get up in the morning, and you want to feel a certain way, or you want to achieve something, are you going to put energy and effort and activity and using your word consistency into that white wolf and make the positive [side] grow and the impact grow, or are you going to feed that black wolf?” - Landi Jac

“You need to trust and back yourself 100%, not what any government media or something like that is telling you is going on in the world because you actually know what's going on in your world, and that's more important.” - Mike Handcock
