Episode 421: Marshall Goldsmith talks about The Earned Life

This is a conversation I’ve been wanting to have for years. Marshall Goldsmith is someone I’ve been following ever since I got into the productivity space. His book “Triggers: Creating Behavior That Lasts – Becoming the Person You Want to Be” was especially formative for me and my work. So when I was asked if I’d like to speak with Marshall about...

Episode 420: Daniel Coyle talks about The Culture Playbook

When I was given the opportunity to speak with Daniel Coyle for A Productive Conversation, I jumped at the opportunity. I’ve been a fan of his work for some time, starting with his book The Talent Code. In the pages of another of his books – The Culture Code – I discovered that he’d paid a visit to observe the culture of the San Antonio Spurs,...

Episode 419: Adrienne Smith talks about playing football, giving her all, and giving back to the game

I’ve always wanted to interview a football player for the podcast. Thanks to Adrienne Smith, I got my chance. Now this conversation was recorded before the Bengals had their stellar run to Super Bowl LVI, so when I talk about my football fandom you’ll find that I’m not as elated about my team compared to where they’re at now. (Adrienne...

Things that matter just hits different. And not just those things, but the book by Joshua Becker of the same name.

And his book, Things That Matter: Overcoming Distraction to Pursue a More Meaningful Life, is a book that I needed...

Episode 417: Cameron Herold talks about being The Second in Command

Meetings suck, don’t they? Fellow Canadian Cameron Herold wrote a book with that title. But he knows that they don’t have to suck. During our discussion, Cameron shares with me why meetings don’t have to suck and how to keep them becoming something that sucks. We also talked about a variety of other things during our conversation because...

A Very Special Episode: Liam Martin talks about Running Remote

The way the world works has been changed forever over the past few years. There’s no going back to the way things were. It’s all about adapting to the evolved world of work – one that involves remote work no matter which way you slice it. That’s why I’m glad to finally have Liam Martin join me on the podcast. Liam is an avid proponent...

Episode 416: Chris Bailey talks about Hyperfocus

I challenge you to really pay concentrated attention to this conversation I had with Chris Bailey. In fact, I challenge you to go beyond that. Don’t just focus… “hyperfocus” if you can. Actually, read Chris’s book Hyperfocus: How to Manage Your Attention in a World of Distraction first so that you really understand what that term (as well...

Episode 415: Ian Morgan Cron talks about The Enneagram

I had no idea what my number was. Not my phone number, but my Enneagram number. I’ve been interested in the Enneagram for a few years now, mainly because of my fascination with frameworks. And while I’ve had conversations with a lot of people who know about the Enneagram I had long wanted to talk to someone who knew a lot about it. That’s...
