Rory Miller calls in to Martial-Secrets from Tierra del Fuego or outside of a Mexican Restaurant – you never know, and introduces us to his new book ConCom: Conflict Communication A New Paradigm in Conscious Communication. If you have ever wondered why your boss ignored a suggestion that could save millions of dollars, or why you have the same argument again and again with your spouse, the answers are here. As well as the tools to do something about it.
More on Sensei, Mentor, Teacher, Coach: Powerful Leadership for Leaderless Times. Spurred on by a listener comment on how Kris and Lawrence have used the information in their new book in the real word. Kris tells the story of having to kick a kid out of the dojo after much, much effort on many parts. Lawrence goes all corporate and explains how throwing skilled and gifted people out front can make a difference in perception and in reality.
Sensei, Mentor, Teacher, Coach: Powerful Leadership for Leaderless Times is the latest book for Kris and Lawrence. The book focuses on actionable items that you can take directly to the dojo floor or executive board room. The guys talk about the structure of their ideas, how it came to be over years of teaching and corporate experience, and how it got laid down on the pages in black and white. Stories that didn’t make the book get talked about and the guys reveal how in writing the book, they called themselves out to better integrate their own ideas into their lives.
Zero Tolerance and what it is doing to us. Lawrence bullied as a kid and how his parents solved the problem. The mind and how it can’t tell the difference between realities and make believe. The value of police and how we diminish the value of police with zero tolerance. A quick swerve into faulty safety plans and it all gets tied together by the end of the show.
Women making violence is on the increase. Yup, we said it. Women are involved in public violence more and more these days. A woman involved in violence certainly is not a one off, man bites dog kind of event anymore. Lawrence and Kris dive down into the nuts and bolts of why? What are the driving factors? Sometimes it’s personal, and sometimes it isn’t. We spread the blame far and deep.
