Leo & Randy On Staying At Home

The global Covid-19 crisis now has most of us in America living under a “shelter in place” rule, meaning we’re isolated at home except to take care of things necessary to maintain our health and safety. We can go to the pharmacy, grocery store, gas station, bank, pick up take-out food, etc. Otherwise, the government wants us to stay at home.

How are you getting along during this time? Are you doing things you wouldn’t otherwise be doing? For instance, Leo and his family report they’re sitting down for dinner together every night, something many of us haven’t done since we were kids. Today, on the What Anyone Can Do podcast, we talk about coping with this new stay at home law .

Do you want to laugh? Then watch these brilliant Tweets by a British “football” announcer (Nick Heath) who is using this time to put his play-by-play skills to good use.

Leo & Randy On Coronavirus

Covid19 has created a level of global uncertainty that cuts to the heart of our collective humanity.  It seems like yesterday people were enjoying a great start to the new year.  Today, many are now wondering if they’ll survive – economically or physically.  Such a seismic shift in market, physical and emotional conditions is rocking the very foundation of our society.

Who you surround yourself matters. Especially now. As we distance socially from physical contact, it’s more important than ever that we remain connected.  We’ll get through this, but it will take all of us working together to make that happen.  Today, we talk about the importance and value of doing so.

For ideas on how you can lean on your peers and serve them at the same time, listen to our podcast.  If you have questions or ideas for us, contact us today.

Leo & Randy On Trial & Error

Leo kicks off today’s discussion with a phrase that speaks to what inhibits too many of us from taking meaningful action – psychological safety. Quite simply, we’re afraid. The result? Inaction.

The highest achievers lean into doing things and figuring it out as they go. It’s largely trial and error activity unbothered by imperfection.

Leo & Randy On Challenge (Season 2020, Episode 5)

“Don’t limit your challenges; challenge your limits.”   ― Jerry Dunn

Jerry Dunn was known as the “Marathon Man” because in the year 2000 he ran 200 marathons. His quote speaks to this episode of the What Anyone Can Do Podcast – the high value derived when others will caringly challenge us to help us achieve more. Specifically, sometimes it’s about helping people achieve exactly what they say they want. High-performing teams and groups are able to openly and safely challenge each other for ongoing improvement and growth.

Leo & Randy On Politics

Today’s show isn’t about partisan politics. It’s not a conversation intended to further the polarization within our country.

Today’s topics include compassion, forgiveness, consideration, cooperation, and collaboration.
