Good afternoon! Good morning, Good evening. Wherever you're tuning in from, whether you're tuning in here, Live on talk, radio, dot Nyc or you're tuning in on Kmt out in Palm springs. California. Thank you all for tuning in today. Welcome to another great show. I have a a really fascinating guest
00:01:04.000 --> 00:01:18.949 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: in store for you today, but first, of course we have our little section from my book, Everyday Awakening. You are more powerful than you know, and today this Week's section is entitled,
00:01:18.960 --> 00:01:24.170 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Investing in Kindness yields many returns of joy.
00:01:24.570 --> 00:01:37.940 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: We all think about the return we get on what we spend. We invest our time into a project. What's the payoff? If we invest our money? What's the rate of return?
00:01:38.110 --> 00:01:42.270 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Yet how do we measure the return on our kindness?
00:01:42.560 --> 00:01:44.600 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: How do we truly
00:01:44.660 --> 00:02:01.580 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: do we truly Do we know truly how our kindness affects other people? Can we see all the ripples that it generates? Do we give our kindness a way to receive something? Or Is it just because it is the proper thing to do?
00:02:02.100 --> 00:02:14.639 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: What is truly amazing is to see how those who give their kindness away without any thought of a return of getting a return on it often gets so much back in return.
00:02:14.650 --> 00:02:22.540 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Perhaps a small, active kindness is captured on camera by someone watching the in the video goes viral.
00:02:22.640 --> 00:02:33.980 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Perhaps we once did an active kindness for friend and need, and when we, when we are in need, that friend shows up, and is there for us when we least expect it?
00:02:34.260 --> 00:02:39.689 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Or perhaps our acts of kindness create a kind community around us.
00:02:40.130 --> 00:02:56.119 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: It is hard to know how the seeds we plant will sprout these seeds of kindness we plant not for our personal gain, but just for the sake of helping others to shine some light in a dark place
00:02:56.280 --> 00:02:59.970 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: for the sake of our sense of doing the right thing.
00:03:00.940 --> 00:03:04.209 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Kindness sometimes feels so good in the moment,
00:03:04.520 --> 00:03:16.130 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: because we wish someone had been kind to us when we were in a similar situation in the past. We may relish in creating a moment of joy in someone's life.
00:03:16.570 --> 00:03:20.199 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: This creates a moment of joy for us, too.
00:03:20.330 --> 00:03:25.490 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: That's the real return on investment. When it comes to kindness
00:03:25.640 --> 00:03:29.070 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: we invest in kindness to create more joy,
00:03:29.110 --> 00:03:37.790 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and then it ripples outward through them, creating more joy for others, Even for people we don't know,
00:03:38.380 --> 00:03:39.610 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: so
00:03:39.830 --> 00:03:43.839 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: is it worth investing in kindness, even if we don't
00:03:43.950 --> 00:03:45.820 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: see a return
00:03:45.980 --> 00:03:48.270 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: absolutely.
00:03:48.990 --> 00:03:52.990 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: What acts of kindness could you create today?
00:03:53.650 --> 00:03:57.879 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: So I I I wrote this section of my book Um,
00:03:58.270 --> 00:04:00.689 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: after seeing this um,
00:04:00.950 --> 00:04:03.979 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: or or seeing this story about a video
00:04:05.230 --> 00:04:07.540 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: where a gentleman
00:04:08.180 --> 00:04:15.269 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: uh uh bought a cup of coffee for a stranger at a fast food restaurant,
00:04:15.700 --> 00:04:23.129 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and and the guy didn't ask anything. I think he looked like he was homeless. He was obviously down on his luck,
00:04:23.390 --> 00:04:30.459 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and and the guy who bought him the coffee. He just bought him the coffee left in and walked out, and I think somebody else and videotaped it.
00:04:31.190 --> 00:04:35.329 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And then they they followed the guy and and they asked him,
00:04:35.460 --> 00:04:39.190 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: what did that cup of coffee mean to him? And he said, You know,
00:04:39.710 --> 00:04:42.789 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: this morning I was considering killing myself.
00:04:43.010 --> 00:04:48.860 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: I felt like the world was so cruel nobody cared. There was no one there for me.
00:04:49.240 --> 00:04:52.540 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: If that gentleman hadn't bought this cup of coffee,
00:04:52.930 --> 00:04:55.390 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: I may not still be here today,
00:04:56.020 --> 00:05:03.769 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and it really struck me because and that video went viral in the story. When I was all over the Internet for a while,
00:05:05.150 --> 00:05:06.230 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and
00:05:06.280 --> 00:05:09.530 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: the guy who bought that man the cup of coffee.
00:05:10.620 --> 00:05:14.019 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: He didn't do it to create a viral video.
00:05:14.260 --> 00:05:18.329 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: He didn't do it for what he was getting out of it.
00:05:19.320 --> 00:05:22.060 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: He just did it to be kind,
00:05:24.370 --> 00:05:29.080 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and he had no idea that anyone was watching.
00:05:29.160 --> 00:05:31.229 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: He had no idea
00:05:32.530 --> 00:05:41.170 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: that somebody would even make a video of it, let alone it, going viral, let alone people. Seeing that video around the globe.
00:05:42.490 --> 00:05:47.449 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: He had no idea how that one little act of kindness
00:05:47.630 --> 00:05:50.080 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: rippled out into the world.
00:05:52.310 --> 00:05:55.020 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And so oftentimes we
00:05:55.610 --> 00:06:04.909 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: we sometimes think to ourselves, Why should I be kind? Nobody's being kind to me. Why should I be kind. You know people, you know what can be so mean and nasty
00:06:07.090 --> 00:06:10.750 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: because we're thinking about. Well, what am I going to get in return?
00:06:14.360 --> 00:06:16.060 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Here's the thing
00:06:17.440 --> 00:06:26.530 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: if we're thinking about what kind of return we're getting for our kindness. It's not true kindness. It's an investment. It's a transaction.
00:06:28.870 --> 00:06:37.749 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And when we're looking for a transaction. That's exactly the wrong way to be kind. That's not real kindness
00:06:39.450 --> 00:06:43.150 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: yet. When we show kindness to others,
00:06:45.750 --> 00:06:48.550 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: not for what we're going to get out of it,
00:06:49.210 --> 00:06:52.450 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: not for any sense of return,
00:06:53.020 --> 00:07:01.060 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: but just because it's the right thing to do, just because it feels like the right thing to do in our hearts
00:07:04.200 --> 00:07:09.109 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: just performing. The act itself is all the return we need.
00:07:09.170 --> 00:07:11.519 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: It makes us feel good,
00:07:12.750 --> 00:07:15.480 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and we have no idea
00:07:15.520 --> 00:07:18.179 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: how that little act of kindness
00:07:18.550 --> 00:07:20.790 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: will ripple through
00:07:21.230 --> 00:07:24.100 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: the world and what it could mean.
00:07:25.680 --> 00:07:32.670 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And and I've been on a bit of a kindness. Kick lately with office sections from my book. A lot of them talk about kindness, because
00:07:33.600 --> 00:07:44.119 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: for me personally, I see and have experienced the difference when people are being kind to me and to others, and when they're not being kind,
00:07:46.890 --> 00:07:49.960 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and I see the difference it makes
00:07:50.570 --> 00:07:58.900 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: in how people are able to show up, because that those little acts of kindness, those little kind words.
00:08:00.180 --> 00:08:03.730 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: It means the world to everyone,
00:08:04.480 --> 00:08:07.840 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and indeed, the smallest act of kindness
00:08:08.120 --> 00:08:11.810 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: can create a huge movement.
00:08:14.420 --> 00:08:16.680 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: It is so important.
00:08:20.080 --> 00:08:21.870 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: In some ways
00:08:22.030 --> 00:08:29.470 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: there are areas of the world that are less kind than they've been before in other places. They're more kind.
00:08:30.030 --> 00:08:32.510 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: The one thing is for certain.
00:08:33.240 --> 00:08:36.799 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: We cannot have too much kindness in this world;
00:08:37.730 --> 00:08:39.200 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and indeed,
00:08:39.940 --> 00:08:47.149 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: if we allow ourselves to receive the gift of being a giver of kindness,
00:08:47.350 --> 00:08:52.599 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: it lightens up our own heart. It makes our own day feel good
00:08:54.530 --> 00:08:58.369 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: helping an elderly person across the street,
00:08:58.720 --> 00:09:01.069 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: picking up a piece of garbage on the
00:09:01.140 --> 00:09:04.100 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: sidewalk and putting it in a garbage panel,
00:09:05.120 --> 00:09:10.700 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: you know, not cutting somebody off in traffic, giving someone a lift when they need it.
00:09:11.640 --> 00:09:15.140 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: These little things we think nothing of them,
00:09:15.470 --> 00:09:19.350 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: they can be so so important to the other person.
00:09:20.010 --> 00:09:29.150 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: So I say all this to say that investing in kindness is the best investment we can make with our energy
00:09:30.420 --> 00:09:36.640 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and an investment in kindness, regardless of whether the other person appreciates it or not,
00:09:37.710 --> 00:09:42.519 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: it yields us more dividends than we can possibly know.
00:09:43.100 --> 00:09:49.179 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: So it is never ever a waste to invest in kindness,
00:09:50.170 --> 00:09:52.449 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: because what it does for us
00:09:53.680 --> 00:10:01.910 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: is just as great as what it does for the other person, and what it does for the world. The energy it puts out into the world
00:10:02.530 --> 00:10:07.590 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: is actually one of the best things that we can do
00:10:08.230 --> 00:10:18.480 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: so. Uh, that's my little section from my book. Everyday Awakening. It's entitled Investing in Kindness yields many returns of joy. Uh, the
00:10:18.490 --> 00:10:47.010 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: book is every day awakening. You are more powerful than you can know. Uh, you can get it at Www.

Now it is my pleasure to welcome to the show uh Rob, uh author and speaker, Rob Holman Rob is a global keynote Speaker and three time leadership author of of three best-selling books lead the way, all in and move the needle in two thousand and twenty-two. He was named one of the world's
00:11:16.340 --> 00:11:27.710 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: top thirty leadership thought leaders, and his inside out. Leadership. Philosophy has been featured in publications like Ink Magazine, Forbes and Fast Company.
00:11:27.830 --> 00:11:57.140 Robb Holman: Welcome to the conscious consult now around.
00:11:57.150 --> 00:12:19.639 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Um. I would just like to know What got you interested in focusing on leadership in your life? Was there somebody in your life early on? Was there some incident that happened like what got you to really say, oh, like leadership is really where it's at. Yeah, really, at the core. Great question at the core. It's personal leadership, because i'm a firm believer in you can only give what you got.
00:12:19.650 --> 00:12:37.890 Robb Holman: Ah, there's an ancient saying that says freely you have received to freely give, and so for me one of those pivotal moments the time of awakening for me I mean true awakening was twenty-one years old heading into my best year of my life, my senior year of university or college, one hundred and fifty
00:12:38.020 --> 00:12:45.969 Robb Holman: one major problem. Though, Sam, I had a tumor in my abdomen that went without a clear diagnosis for six weeks
00:12:46.240 --> 00:13:05.430 Robb Holman: I got cat scans. Mris ultrasound. The doctors were not ruling out cancer because the mass was just so abnormal. It was growing. It was extremely painful, but they didn't know exactly what it was, so they didn't know exactly what to do with it, until what I share with you completely rocked my world
00:13:05.440 --> 00:13:11.700 Robb Holman: behind beyond human comprehension. Here's what happened. I saw an ultrasound specialist that I had not seen before.
00:13:12.730 --> 00:13:16.419 Robb Holman: He begins to check me out. Like all the other doctors had before,
00:13:16.690 --> 00:13:28.519 Robb Holman: but this time, to his utter amazement, and looking at and and you know, making sure that you know, taking his hands, trying to feel out this mass, and looking on the screen, his utter amazement,
00:13:28.540 --> 00:13:30.530 Robb Holman: these words came out of his mouth:
00:13:30.850 --> 00:13:36.139 Robb Holman: Rob, what you walked in with today? A clear mass you have no longer.
00:13:37.380 --> 00:13:45.489 Robb Holman: It was called later, would be called a modern-day miracle, now leading up to that point. Sam in my life at twenty one years old
00:13:45.500 --> 00:13:59.450 Robb Holman: purpose for me was winning. The next basketball game was hanging out with my friends and having fun. That was purposeful living. But you better believe, Now, coming out this miraculous set of circumstances, I start to ask things i'd never asked before. Who am I?
00:13:59.740 --> 00:14:11.259 Robb Holman: Why am I really here? And what's the sphere of influence that I've been given that no one else on the planet's been given but me. And how can I faithfully serve them with every aspect of who I?
00:14:11.270 --> 00:14:27.569 Robb Holman: It changed everything for me, and that truly started the journey of leadership and personal leadership. And little did I know that now over twenty-five years later i'd be helping leaders all around the world discover or rediscover who they are.
00:14:27.630 --> 00:14:46.040 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Well, that's amazing. I i'm just curious. I mean, did you do anything before you saw that ultrasound specialist to do it. It just it just already just disappeared on zone. Yeah, it's just a spear by itself. And and if the story is up bizarre all within itself, what makes it more bizarre Was I still had pain
00:14:46.050 --> 00:14:59.339 Robb Holman: in my abdomen as he's telling me this story. The pain was there. When I left his office, however, the pain started to subside. The more people that I told what had happened,
00:14:59.360 --> 00:15:22.260 Robb Holman: the goodness of what occurred the miracle that transpired. And I kid you not. I probably went back to the college campus and told about a third of the college campus, what had happened, and little by little the pain left my body within twenty-four hours after I started sharing it with people. It left my body in its entirety, and it's never been back.
00:15:23.260 --> 00:15:42.710 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Wow! That that's truly something something like that happens, and that really rocks your world. So that's amazing. I have to share with you a story about um, a teacher I I work with, but I want a quick break first um, and then when we come back, talk about that a little bit more, and then let's get into sort of how you developed your take on leadership,
00:15:43.120 --> 00:15:50.769 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and how that sort of came about the journey to to kind of find leadership within your own life. Okay, Rob, Great sounds great,

00:18:40.520 --> 00:18:52.499 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: who created this um sort of emotional and physical healing technique called the Journey, and she had been one of Tony Robbins uh early uh health coaches,
00:18:52.640 --> 00:19:03.119 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and she had kind of a similar experience with She had, I mean, a little more extreme, but she had a tumor in here abdomen like the size of a basketball,
00:19:03.130 --> 00:19:21.340 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and she refused to have surgery. She's! She pleaded with the doctors to help her work on it uh to to give her a month to work on it, and she went and um. She tried all different kinds of healings. Nothing was working, and she finally went to see this woman, who was a body worker,
00:19:21.350 --> 00:19:32.789 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and the woman said, You know it feels like there's some grief. There's some sadness in here, and she kind of went into the tumor, and this huge flood of emotion came out,
00:19:32.800 --> 00:19:51.800 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and then over the course of the next month the tumor's strength shrank, shrank, shrank, is Frank, until it disappeared, and she created this whole body of work called the Journey, and it's something that I've done in the past, and I do as a as a healer to help people, and and it just these kinds of miracles,
00:19:52.160 --> 00:20:09.479 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: I mean, you know what they say. Miracle is not something that's impossible. It's just highly improbable. Um, they do happen in people's lives, and it's so fascinating to see how different people respond to them. So this miracle happened to you. You You tell everyone about it.
00:20:09.560 --> 00:20:24.620 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: What What was, What was it that got you to say, like i'm going to be a leadership coach? I'm going to focus on leadership like. What was it about leadership? Specifically that that you know made you decide. That's what you want to dedicate your life to?
00:20:24.760 --> 00:20:30.729 Robb Holman: You know I had always been a leader ever since I was a little kid people would look to me. Uh I always had I
00:20:30.740 --> 00:20:56.520 Robb Holman: different groups of friends. I wasn't in like just a click. I I it's sports, and I was into speaking. I was into different things, and so I had a diversity of friends, and oftentimes people. I didn't know um much about leadership at that particular time, other than Sam that people would look to me that asked me for answers. They would look for guidance or encouragement. But coming out of this unusual miraculous set of circumstances, um
00:20:56.550 --> 00:21:03.200 Robb Holman: I i'm a self-starter. I'm a i'm a serial entrepreneur so I started my first business right out of college.
00:21:03.390 --> 00:21:12.140 Robb Holman: I had two companies by age of twenty-three uh, and you probably know where it goes off from. There. I just continue continue to and along that journey of
00:21:12.220 --> 00:21:15.950 Robb Holman: having a higher perspective on myself and other people,
00:21:16.240 --> 00:21:34.689 Robb Holman: and being a student of who people are, what makes them tick and come alive what you know the challenges they may face. Now, I'm employing people with two companies wage at twenty-three i'm employing people on in strategic alliance and partnership with others, and all these different things. So now my purpose is never been more clear.
00:21:35.170 --> 00:21:36.490 Robb Holman: I
00:21:37.030 --> 00:21:39.199 Robb Holman: was a student of people,
00:21:39.860 --> 00:22:09.049 Robb Holman: and something deep on the inside of me just would continue to rise up, being like people were meant for much more than just going through the motions just caching in a paycheck just the next big sale. There's got to be more to life than going through the motions and so my journey really started in as many regards h twenty-one when I went through what I share with you a few few minutes ago. But then it continues, as I started my entrepreneurial journey through that
00:22:09.070 --> 00:22:23.239 Robb Holman: I gained even a greater awareness of who I was, my personal mission, calling, call it whatever you want, and how I could use my super power, so to speak, of being alive with my purpose and my mission to truly serve
00:22:23.250 --> 00:22:45.089 Robb Holman: other people, and help remove any obstacles that perhaps they have in their own life, so they can live a life of fulfillment, and be of greater good, not only to those within their sphere of influence, but ultimately the world. So as I continue down that journey now, there's a word that kind of steps into the conversation it's called stewardship. I wanted to really begin to be a
00:22:45.210 --> 00:23:02.609 Robb Holman: could steward of who I was and who was entrusted in my care. So it just grew more fuel on the fire or purpose, and more, and I was um. I never wanted it to solely be about me now. There were points along my journey where
00:23:02.620 --> 00:23:10.970 Robb Holman: you know a lot kind of look. And do I get my name in the paper for this and that along my entrepreneurial journey? But ultimately, deep down inside, I knew Sam
00:23:11.220 --> 00:23:22.719 Robb Holman: that I wanted to elevate people. I knew that I wanted to come alongside of people dare, I say, get under them, only to lift them up, to be all that they were truly created to be.
00:23:23.740 --> 00:23:27.890 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Now you've been doing this a long time twenty years over twenty years, you've said,
00:23:28.340 --> 00:23:50.950 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: You know leadership sounds like one of those things that's relatively timeless. But people today kind of feel like we're in a different kind of world than we were twenty years ago. Do you see that the challenges in in working with people and helping people to become more mindful leaders? Are they different today than they were twenty years ago? Or are they still it's still relatively the same core things.
00:23:51.060 --> 00:24:06.679 Robb Holman: My answer would be yes to all the above. I I think that there are um. There's some general things, I think, regardless of generation, regardless of trials and tribulations, that, uh human beings are human beings, and that's in the West. That's also in the East.
00:24:06.890 --> 00:24:16.449 Robb Holman: At the same time, I think you'd agree with this. There's some general principles that uh are applicable regardless of the time, regardless of the person, et cetera.
00:24:16.620 --> 00:24:35.140 Robb Holman: But this world's moving pretty fast, and I think the average person and I would say, there's I'll put my hand up in the air, saying, I think we're just trying to keep up with how fast things are moving. The challenge, even the temptation at times in in trying to stay up
00:24:35.390 --> 00:24:36.700 Robb Holman: is
00:24:37.430 --> 00:24:40.610 Robb Holman: our mind and our heart can easily be divided.
00:24:40.740 --> 00:24:55.519 Robb Holman: You know I I gotta do this. I gotta do more of that. The fear of missing out. Well, what happens if I don't start this now well as opposed to looking at the person experiencing the person that's with us right. Now the idea that's taking shape right now,
00:24:56.640 --> 00:25:09.780 Robb Holman: and in order to be present in a crazy, busy world, it requires some things of us. We've got to be aware of the default mechanisms of going down this fast-paced life and leadership.
00:25:10.860 --> 00:25:13.769 Robb Holman: But we've got to be willing at the same time
00:25:14.900 --> 00:25:28.039 Robb Holman: to put times in our schedule to be reminded of certain things, the people and the things that matter most, and not feel bad about putting certain things in our schedule, so that now we give into a certain discipline a certain rhythm
00:25:28.050 --> 00:25:37.519 Robb Holman: of, you know, spending time by ourselves, for instance, spending time in my case with my wife of eighteen years and my three kids, and having not just
00:25:38.000 --> 00:25:52.549 Robb Holman: quality of time, but quantity of time, because I believe both are needed, and both are true; and when I ed them in my schedule that tells me that it tells them that they're important. But then in time the discipline begins to give way into more of a lifestyle
00:25:52.620 --> 00:26:11.169 Robb Holman: to where I don't need to put it in my schedule anymore. I find it reasons. That's true. I'll find it reasons to come home early for more. I'll find a reason to spend time with my bride. I'm finding reasons to hang out with my kids on a one to one or group basis, because i'm compelled to do so out of a very deep place,
00:26:11.180 --> 00:26:14.250 Robb Holman: because a mindful and aware of certain things.
00:26:14.970 --> 00:26:33.319 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Yeah, it it's. And what you said about giving time to yourself into those closest to your family. I found that over the last two and a half years, during the pandemic people began to value those things much more because it's almost like it was forced upon us externally.
00:26:33.470 --> 00:26:43.979 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: But then it's like it gave people the opportunity to re-evaluate their values in life, and so they realized that, like you know,
00:26:43.990 --> 00:27:01.769 Robb Holman: working twelve hours a day is not, does not serve me, Does it right? No, it does not, hey? Because can I get back to an anchoring point I brought up earlier that we can only give what we got, and so many of us, because of the crazy busy fast-piece lives in which we live or attempted to live.
00:27:01.830 --> 00:27:10.490 Robb Holman: Uh, many of us are running on fumes, if not burn, out and may not fully realize it. So we're giving ourselves, and we're giving those closest to us
00:27:10.500 --> 00:27:29.850 Robb Holman: leftovers, and that's not fair to who we are as human beings. That's that's certainly fair to those within our sphere of immediate influence. And so I want to be the best steward of who I am and who's been entrusted my care. So I can make a greater difference, a greater impact in this world,
00:27:29.860 --> 00:27:47.860 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Right? Right? Absolutely absolutely, because we can't get from a cup that's only half full, because then we're not really going to be able to give what the other person needs, and all it's going to do is drain us and make us feel like we don't have enough; but if we but if our cup is overflowing,
00:27:47.870 --> 00:27:56.049 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and we get from our overflow, then we're truly able to give what the other person needs. That's right, Sam. And I think, too, I just want to address this,
00:27:56.180 --> 00:28:16.099 Robb Holman: because when you live a busy life lot of activity, busy life, and a lot of activity doesn't always equate to the best activity and the most effective activity. And so for me, i'm just committed to live a life and and my leadership as well with not going after the masses.
00:28:16.110 --> 00:28:26.610 Robb Holman: I want to go after the one, and I've just I've I've learned, and I've appreciated that when i'm committed to going after one being present with the one who's before me,
00:28:26.970 --> 00:28:29.869 Robb Holman: I will reach the masses in and through the one.
00:28:30.350 --> 00:28:38.829 Robb Holman: But I've got to say no to the masses, no to trying to cast in that far and wide, to try to effect and reach everyone positively all at the same time
00:28:39.150 --> 00:28:45.790 Robb Holman: when I say no to that, I actually get to say yes a bit more to the one in front of me.
00:28:50.050 --> 00:28:51.210 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Um!
00:28:51.230 --> 00:29:21.220 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: We got to take another quick break when we come back. I do want to talk to you about like the challenges that we face today, because there's some pretty big challenges out there.

00:31:41.310 --> 00:31:46.180 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and welcome back we're talking this hour with Rob Holden. So, Rob,
00:31:46.690 --> 00:31:59.150 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: these days we. We're really dealing with a lot of challenges. I mean, things are politically more divided than a. And if we before families are divided over um, some of these social issues
00:31:59.160 --> 00:32:08.309 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: there. There's challenges with the environment and the ecology world that there's war and the threat of of the we're escalating.
00:32:08.480 --> 00:32:11.459 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: How do we as leaders.
00:32:12.090 --> 00:32:27.519 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: They solve that and still maintain our positivity and still maintain our energy and and and sort of i'm gonna say, being optimistic, but kind of like being realistic, but still moving in a in a forward direction.
00:32:27.530 --> 00:32:34.320 Robb Holman: Yeah, there was an article, Sam. It came out in a Harvard column. I want to say just a couple of months ago,
00:32:34.350 --> 00:32:47.520 Robb Holman: and the columnist cites a a Deloitte survey of executives and in the survey. It said that about seventy percent of exact c-suite executives, regardless of size. Of the organization. One hundred and fifty
00:32:48.030 --> 00:32:54.469 Robb Holman: are thinking about leaving their existing workplace because of their well-being,
00:32:54.660 --> 00:32:57.259 Robb Holman: and then it continues to site.
00:32:57.540 --> 00:33:04.440 Robb Holman: And outside of the C-suite about fifty-seven percent. Our employees are thinking about doing the same thing.
00:33:05.120 --> 00:33:10.720 Robb Holman: So These statistics are now coming out. The people are tired in large part because they don't feel well.
00:33:10.780 --> 00:33:27.639 Robb Holman: Yeah, they're well, being at stake enough to say, i'm willing to leave this good job. Good money, good responsibility to jump ship, hoping that a different culture is going to better take care of me, nurture who I am as a human being, and my professional development. As well.
00:33:27.930 --> 00:33:36.840 Robb Holman: So one of the things I love to highlight in light of making sure that we stay on point with our well-being, and how we can foster well, being within the workplace as well as leaders.
00:33:38.010 --> 00:33:42.700 Robb Holman: If we look for the good, we'll find it it's. Whether or not we're looking for
00:33:43.280 --> 00:34:03.079 Robb Holman: It's so easy in life and leadership and workplace culture to just deal with problems. I mean, here's a problem. Here's a and then meetings, and one to one times it's. We become obsessed about the problem, and then we'll bring solutions eventually into solving the problem. But I think we can become
00:34:03.800 --> 00:34:07.720 Robb Holman: really inundated and focused on the problem
00:34:08.460 --> 00:34:10.229 Robb Holman: more than
00:34:10.449 --> 00:34:12.409 Robb Holman: the good in the midst of it.
00:34:14.170 --> 00:34:16.699 Robb Holman: And i'm here to say, if leaders
00:34:16.750 --> 00:34:26.000 Robb Holman: spend a bit more time beginning with themselves, their own personal lives, regardless of trials, tribulations, challenges, obstacles, bears, call whatever you want.
00:34:26.489 --> 00:34:31.689 Robb Holman: When we are committed to look for the good, and I'm. Talking specifically
00:34:32.820 --> 00:34:35.269 Robb Holman: and engage our senses
00:34:35.310 --> 00:34:38.560 in that place of goodness. As small as it may seem,
00:34:39.260 --> 00:34:52.340 Robb Holman: it can help but work itself out into the world, the culture around us, and and so and there's studies that also show Sam that I've been triggered with that there's a reason why the average person leader is
00:34:52.790 --> 00:34:57.999 Robb Holman: attached more to negative things than positive things, more to the problems than the solutions.
00:34:58.010 --> 00:35:20.370 Robb Holman: And it's because of you know, a lot of it's human nature and the aspect of it. It's called the out of You're familiar with the Velcro Teflon effect, Velcro. There's a reason why we we do a good job at something, and we're receiving ten praises for the great job. But then we receive one negative thing, and we all of a sudden, like Ah, throw out the ten positive span. I'm just obsessing about the one thing that went wrong. I guess that was no point. I guess i'm not.
00:35:20.380 --> 00:35:26.259 Robb Holman: And and so it's almost like positive things can almost be like Teflon slide off
00:35:26.340 --> 00:35:40.480 Robb Holman: right, and the negative things stick. And so what we can do is we can retrain the brain to think more positively, but it requires us to actually meditate on good things for a minimum of twenty seconds each, and be a specific,
00:35:40.590 --> 00:35:58.280 Robb Holman: as we possibly possibly can. Now we engage our senses in that place of gratitude and thankfulness, and the brain starts firing off certain things that in time now it starts to give way to more of a positive approach perspective,
00:35:58.290 --> 00:36:18.010 Robb Holman: and in time culture as well. Yeah. I mean, we've been kind of talking around it, but it sounds like This is the heart of your inside out. Leadership, philosophy, Isn't: it. It sure is. Yeah, I mean it. It is literally not trying about a bunch of outside techniques and strategies. There's a place for them,
00:36:18.020 --> 00:36:32.910 Robb Holman: but they're temporary. It's more or less starting in the heart, starting in the mind with things that matter most, and I found one of those things that help us awaken, Help us live. A higher perspective
00:36:32.920 --> 00:36:44.270 Robb Holman: is living a life of intentional gratitude. Again, it doesn't mean that we stay up in the clouds, right? We gotta do. But I I feel that out of that thankful place
00:36:44.280 --> 00:36:54.850 Robb Holman: we can begin actually looking at the problem from a different perspective. And now creativity flows now inspiration, breathing life into that problem.
00:36:54.860 --> 00:37:24.499 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: It's uh it's approached out of a completely different place. Yeah, I I remember hearing about. I didn't see the study myself, but they did some report. They were measuring sort of the electromagnetic field that the body generates when we're in different emotional states, and they found that when we're in appreciation and gratitude, it's like a higher level frequency, and then other emotional states, so that when we come from gratitude it it's literally affecting
00:37:24.510 --> 00:37:31.719 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: our physical body, not just our mental state. And so what you're saying is that when we come from that place
00:37:32.350 --> 00:37:38.919 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: we're able to find the solutions, and we're able to like, find our way through
00:37:39.210 --> 00:37:42.929 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: in a much more effective and efficient way.
00:37:43.140 --> 00:37:46.620 Robb Holman: That's right. And I also believe you're spot on.
00:37:46.800 --> 00:37:53.489 Robb Holman: We're more present out of that place, or there's a potential to be more present out of that place.
00:37:53.550 --> 00:38:08.109 Robb Holman: You know another. Another Harvard Health study shows this. I recently came across this. I'm a big. I love studies because um, I believe in my inside out leadership message, but I also believe in the practical facts and truths that back it up.
00:38:08.410 --> 00:38:11.099 Robb Holman: And in this hell Harvard Health study.
00:38:11.480 --> 00:38:30.779 Robb Holman: It shows that so many people um either see the glass half filled or half empty, or whatever the case may be. Right. You're either a pessimist or an optimistic, and I always like to say this. This is going to surprise you and your listeners at this point, but I always like to say, Well, the class is always overflowing. I mean that for me. That's where it's always at.
00:38:30.790 --> 00:38:33.199 Robb Holman: But she brings up an interesting point in that.
00:38:33.490 --> 00:38:34.809 Robb Holman: She said.
00:38:35.090 --> 00:38:41.839 Robb Holman: It's not pessimistic thinking. It's not an optimistic thinking as much as it is present.
00:38:41.900 --> 00:38:43.920 Robb Holman: I think it.
00:38:44.010 --> 00:38:51.429 Robb Holman: Yeah. And when we live in and out of a place of gratitude, thankfulness what we're grateful for, who we're grateful for.
00:38:51.900 --> 00:38:54.499 Robb Holman: It invites us into this world
00:38:54.830 --> 00:38:56.000 a presence.
00:38:56.280 --> 00:39:04.290 Robb Holman: Yeah, Because it could even be something you were grateful for that happened last week. It could be something that's going to be. You're going to be great before in the future. But then, now
00:39:04.900 --> 00:39:23.990 Robb Holman: we're actually giving gratitude, having a time, intentional time of thankfulness in the moment for that thing that happened last week, or what's going to happen next month, and that's a special invitation for us to absorb, to embrace and to live out of lead out of this place
00:39:24.470 --> 00:39:54.390 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: called gratitude. So yeah, big part of my inside out leadership message is gratitude. No downstream. And i'm really really glad to hear you talk about presence, because it's also a big part of what I teach people. People People ask me, how do you become a great um, you know radio show host and stuff. And I say, well, it's all about really being present with your guests being present to the conversation. But what takes us out of presence? What takes us out of presence is fear. It's thinking about the past, or thinking about the future, but in negative terms.
00:39:54.400 --> 00:40:05.200 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: But when we're really here in the present moment, in the present moment everything is great. That's right, and and one of my teachers, he once said, that
00:40:05.270 --> 00:40:15.299 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: you know the person who is the most present in a room actually has the most power. Because if you're in a meeting, and there of let's say five people there,
00:40:15.420 --> 00:40:20.500 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and you're more present than any anyone else to the people in the room.
00:40:20.530 --> 00:40:39.849 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: You're able to feel their energy. Read their body language. Listen to their tone of voice more, and then you know where people are at, and then you're able to meet them there and move them in the direction you want to move, where somebody who's not present who's not aware they're not going to pick up on those subtle things.
00:40:39.860 --> 00:40:46.169 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And so they don't really have the same influence that you do as someone who is being very present.
00:40:46.210 --> 00:40:49.620 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: But if if we're constantly stuck in
00:40:49.690 --> 00:41:02.480 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: being a firefighter dealing with prices, dealing with everything that's wrong. We're not going to be present because we're going to be distracted. Aren't we
00:41:02.770 --> 00:41:04.690 Robb Holman: in in Canada
00:41:04.790 --> 00:41:08.719 Robb Holman: there was a city in Canada that a superintendent
00:41:08.770 --> 00:41:15.829 Robb Holman: um really stand up great influence on the law enforcement department of this particular geographical area.
00:41:15.940 --> 00:41:19.609 Robb Holman: And he said, Everyone is giving uh negative tickets out.
00:41:19.710 --> 00:41:23.669 Robb Holman: But let's start really honing in on giving positive tickets,
00:41:23.940 --> 00:41:32.560 Robb Holman: And they had a tremendous Sam youth I mean a problem and challenges, and and just crime was through the roof.
00:41:32.580 --> 00:41:34.670 Robb Holman: Let me just tell you.
00:41:35.000 --> 00:41:39.339 Robb Holman: The superintendent's influence on this law enforcement team
00:41:40.420 --> 00:41:44.600 Robb Holman: throughout a span of about ten years committed to the positive tickets
00:41:44.750 --> 00:41:47.959 Robb Holman: the culture started to shift.
00:41:48.230 --> 00:42:12.269 Robb Holman: They start to become more present, more appreciative of the community members, and even the youth and not obsessed with the wrong as much as they're obsessed with the right, and start to fan that flame. The people, the community members that you start a few more valued and appreciated, and let me just it didn't happen overnight, right right? But throughout the course about ten years crime went down about sixty, six, zero
00:42:12.280 --> 00:42:19.589 Robb Holman: tremendous impact on that particular community. So when we live and lead out of this place
00:42:20.230 --> 00:42:25.410 Robb Holman: all of a sudden, now we can be more present with the one in front of us, and when we are
00:42:26.150 --> 00:42:33.299 Robb Holman: they can't help but feel valued, loved on, encouraged, inspired, And let's be real with our leaders listening.
00:42:33.800 --> 00:42:49.120 Robb Holman: That's the place where a lot of magic comes from. That's the place where true connection trust is built and fostered. The best ideas come in and out of that place as well. They're trying to solve a problem based on the how having those higher perspectives? Wow!
00:42:49.600 --> 00:42:56.709 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Wow! Cool. I I i'm curious. Do you feel? Leaders today are more open to this message than they've been in the past.
00:42:56.720 --> 00:43:11.779 Robb Holman: Absolutely hundred. I mean they. I think my message, your message, I We've been teaching it. We've been sharing it for years, and there's been certainly influence and great impact. We know that locally, you know, nationally and globally.
00:43:12.120 --> 00:43:34.210 Robb Holman: But now I think there has been awakening coming in and out of Covid, and all that Covid is shared with us to where leaders are far more receptive, I think. Uh, and this is leaders in every generation, whether it's the even the Gen. Z's, the millennials, the Gen. You know, and and then the baby boomers. It doesn't matter who you are, I think, the average person and leader now
00:43:35.190 --> 00:43:38.640 Robb Holman: cares about the things the people that matter most to them.
00:43:39.150 --> 00:43:42.310 Robb Holman: They truly want to make a difference. It's going to be lasting.
00:43:42.470 --> 00:43:46.009 Robb Holman: Thus they're able to receive a message
00:43:46.430 --> 00:43:57.580 Robb Holman: of mindfulness, presence inside out, leadership in a way arguably than they never ever have been before. So I think not. Just I think, Sam, I know
00:43:57.750 --> 00:44:14.339 Robb Holman: that the leaders that embrace this and really take it back to their teams and want to see culture change based on these messages. I think productivity is going to go through the war. The roof, I think. Um, the impact of influence. I think the um
00:44:14.400 --> 00:44:28.309 Robb Holman: uh the community transformation. The organizations and leaders within those organizations are going to have It's going to have a scratch of our heads in a good way, being like what is happening here. A lot of great stuff.
00:44:28.320 --> 00:44:35.260 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Yeah, yeah, absolutely absolutely. And you just said something. And I just want to highlight it before we go to our last break,
00:44:35.760 --> 00:44:47.669 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Which is that the when you you make this internal shift as the leader, you shift the culture of your organization and it. And, as dear friend of mine used to say, all the time,
00:44:47.680 --> 00:44:58.209 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Culture will lead strategy every day of the week, so you can have the best strategy. But if you have the worst culture, you're not going to do very well as an organization,
00:44:58.220 --> 00:45:15.240 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: but you can have a so so strategy. But you can have a great culture, and that will, and that organization will for outshine another organization that doesn't have the same components. But together, so like we're we're kind of on the same plane
00:45:15.250 --> 00:45:27.489 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: all right. It's time, believe it or not, to take our last break. When I come back for our last segment, it's time always flies when they have such interesting, wonderful guests. When we come back. I want to ask you about the future
00:45:27.720 --> 00:45:39.930 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: like, where are we going And and how do leaders today deal with what they have to deal with today to bring the future about that they want to bring about? Okay,

00:47:25.460 --> 00:47:35.549 You're listening to talk radio, Nyc: at Ww: talk radio dot Nyc. Now broadcasting twenty four hours a day,
00:47:49.720 --> 00:47:50.580 you,
00:47:58.800 --> 00:48:10.140 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and welcome back. All right, Rob. This is a section of the show where we do a little prognostication. So if i'm a leader today that i'm dealing with a lot of these challenges,
00:48:11.250 --> 00:48:29.570 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: you know what's happening in our environment? Um the way actually I see a few people talking a lot now these days about how population is actually declining, and how that's going to be. A challenge for us is not going to be enough people to to do the work that needs to get done. Th: the division that we see around us.
00:48:29.580 --> 00:48:43.690 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: How do I today, as a leader, bring my my community or my organization forward and deal with all of these challenges, and still be able to to meet them and have an impact,
00:48:44.730 --> 00:48:50.470 Robb Holman: So, historically speaking, many different organizations, and the leaders within them
00:48:50.650 --> 00:49:05.199 Robb Holman: have taken care of their people through creating and sustaining professional development, plans and strategies.
00:49:05.710 --> 00:49:09.060 Robb Holman: It's good. It's noble. It's admirable. No problems. With that
00:49:09.470 --> 00:49:11.549 Robb Holman: we need to add an extra layer
00:49:11.570 --> 00:49:16.459 Robb Holman: that's personal development meets professional development in the workplace.
00:49:16.990 --> 00:49:23.260 Robb Holman: So I've found the most effective organizations, regardless if they're non or for profit,
00:49:23.630 --> 00:49:30.209 Robb Holman: are committed to work with each team, member within the organization and helping them develop
00:49:30.280 --> 00:49:45.649 Robb Holman: and maintain a personal development plan and then bridge that into the professional development plan. Okay, you say? Well, Rob, how do I do that? You know people want some practicalities here, and that's what i'm all about.
00:49:45.920 --> 00:49:48.190 Robb Holman: It's It's taking a look at
00:49:48.330 --> 00:49:57.380 Robb Holman: and spending the time with each team member starting with yourself as a leader now, because we can only give what we got right, Sam. We already talked about that. So speaking to each leader,
00:49:57.870 --> 00:49:59.770 Robb Holman: what's your mantra
00:50:00.000 --> 00:50:13.120 Robb Holman: for the next twelve months. What's your mantra? What is it that you're truly after in your personal life? What is it? Is it working? Smarter not harder. Is it living a life of gratitude? Is it quality of time? Is it? What what's your mantra? One hundred and fifty,
00:50:13.670 --> 00:50:17.360 Robb Holman: and then break it in byte-size pay pieces based on outcomes.
00:50:17.590 --> 00:50:22.710 Robb Holman: Where do you see yourself by the end of this twelve months, personally,
00:50:22.940 --> 00:50:25.489 Robb Holman: and think holistically, spiritually,
00:50:25.820 --> 00:50:30.629 Robb Holman: emotionally physically mentally career-wise
00:50:31.320 --> 00:50:34.869 Robb Holman: so, and and state those outcomes in positive terms.
00:50:35.390 --> 00:50:50.870 Robb Holman: They they become declarations in a sense. Okay, there's my gratitude again. It keeps on rear its head here. Same gratitude based on your personal mantra, based on five positive outcomes of things, you believe will come to pass
00:50:50.960 --> 00:51:00.980 Robb Holman: with the help of other people, certainly, and the help of resources and tools for enlistment, but nonetheless will come to pass. And then each month, What's one practical step that I can take
00:51:01.630 --> 00:51:09.890 Robb Holman: under each of those outcomes to create momentum each month, and each month builds off the next, you know, from the the month of Prior. So
00:51:09.910 --> 00:51:16.810 Robb Holman: if we, if it starts with us in the leader, we're committed to a personal development space like that personal.
00:51:17.470 --> 00:51:20.389 Robb Holman: Then we help our team members
00:51:20.420 --> 00:51:27.450 Robb Holman: with their personal development tracks, or an Hr leader director to help them with their personal development track. Here's what it does.
00:51:27.540 --> 00:51:36.070 Robb Holman: It makes Each team member, starting with us first feel valued, respected, appreciated, not based on what we do, but
00:51:36.650 --> 00:51:40.060 Robb Holman: based on who we are.
00:51:40.550 --> 00:51:56.600 Robb Holman: Now we have a finger on the polls, and we can inspire that individual. We can encourage that individual. We can make sure to hold them accountable. Not based on, you know, professional, this professional that, but based on who they are and their deepest desires personally,
00:51:57.050 --> 00:51:59.990 Robb Holman: and then start building the bridge into professional.
00:52:00.370 --> 00:52:05.280 Robb Holman: Wow! You talk about increase productivity. That's why I always like to say
00:52:05.450 --> 00:52:08.870 Robb Holman: that if you want to have increased productivity,
00:52:08.900 --> 00:52:21.239 Robb Holman: you just might be surprised by a thankful heart. I think, if we're committed to a personal development track that feeds into the professional, it's certainly going to have leaders and their team members off and running
00:52:21.350 --> 00:52:27.509 Robb Holman: for the upcoming year. No doubt about
00:52:27.890 --> 00:52:37.489 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: productivity is not always about how many hours a day they're putting into the job. It's not about working a sixty hour, seventy hour, eighty hour work week.
00:52:37.950 --> 00:52:50.839 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: But when we, when we're in a supportive environment, when we're in an environment where we can feel grateful because we know we have the support of of the whole culture of the organization.
00:52:50.850 --> 00:53:01.100 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: If, then, we're more free to be more creative to figure out more creative solutions and actually be more productive in less hours.
00:53:01.130 --> 00:53:12.209 Robb Holman: Yeah, they spot on the the days of the carrot and stick method of leadership are over. Uh people are longing
00:53:13.390 --> 00:53:29.380 Robb Holman: for their voice to be heard for them to be seen for them to be experienced, and it takes time as a leader, right? It takes time to get to know your people in and through an exchange of story, and then through helping them develop their personal development track, like I just share. It takes time,
00:53:29.410 --> 00:53:31.700 Robb Holman: but as an end result
00:53:31.740 --> 00:53:34.120 Robb Holman: it demonstrates to your people
00:53:35.300 --> 00:53:41.190 Robb Holman: that you are here to put people before procedures for greater results.
00:53:41.330 --> 00:54:01.960 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: So what would you advise somebody who ends up in an organization that's not like this like that type of an organization is what they're looking for, and they end up taking a job. And they're in some organization that over a period of time it becomes obvious like this is not what the organization is about. How would you counsel that person?
00:54:01.970 --> 00:54:16.510 Robb Holman: So, yeah, that alignment of values, for instance, just isn't there, right? And it's like the natural response of anyone is, I I think i'm just out. I need to bounce. I need to get out of here. I just need to be an alignment. I would be like, not so fast,
00:54:16.610 --> 00:54:19.769 Robb Holman: maybe in time. That may be the case.
00:54:20.650 --> 00:54:25.370 Robb Holman: But could it be not based on your title, not based on even your responsibilities,
00:54:25.810 --> 00:54:30.190 Robb Holman: but just based on who you are, and the awakening that you have in your heart and soul in mind
00:54:30.550 --> 00:54:34.329 Robb Holman: that you could become the greatest change agent for that organization,
00:54:34.940 --> 00:54:37.619 Robb Holman: but they're waiting for you to become that.
00:54:37.730 --> 00:54:49.419 Robb Holman: So now i'm not saying it's for everyone i'm not saying it's for twenty-five years of doing that right. But it might just be exactly what the organization needs and the leadership
00:54:49.430 --> 00:55:13.140 Robb Holman: needs, but they might not be fully aware of it. Exactly. So hold tight, and maybe there can be a bit of a process of intentionality on your part of seeing certain things through demonstrating certain things, helping people serve people in various ways, having influence. If you're a mid level manager on the C-suite for instance, on the people on the ground, because that's the beauty of mid-level managers, too,
00:55:13.160 --> 00:55:29.829 Robb Holman: is there in the some of the C-suite meetings, but they're also boots on the ground, and in some of those meetings as well So there's a lot of encouragement. Go around, even if one feels like I think I need to get out. I guess i'm just saying, not so fast, not so fast.
00:55:29.840 --> 00:55:57.339 Robb Holman: Yeah. Yeah, yeah, exactly. Exactly. It's kind of like. If you find yourself in a situation you're probably there for a reason, right before you you exit so quickly. Let's see if you can be the the the change that you want to see in the world. Right? That's right. That's right. I was at. I was. I was speaking somewhere not too long ago, and a woman came up to me. We had a wonderful chat of about forty-five minutes on the topic that I spoke on, called re-engage from the inside out,
00:55:57.760 --> 00:56:05.340 Robb Holman: and Sam. I started to speak with her, and she's like I I don't know if I should leave, I don't know if I should leave Rob, what should I do?
00:56:06.570 --> 00:56:08.000 Robb Holman: And I said,
00:56:08.510 --> 00:56:23.870 Robb Holman: Have you ever thought you thought of yourself based on the awakening that you have your skill, set your gifts and experience that you could. You are not just, could be. But you actually are a gift to this organization, and they may not fully aware. Be aware of it right now, because I've never viewed myself like that,
00:56:24.150 --> 00:56:27.790 Robb Holman: I said, What would it look like for you to unwrap yourself, so to speak,
00:56:27.970 --> 00:56:32.629 Robb Holman: so they can see the beauty, smell, the fragrance,
00:56:33.050 --> 00:56:48.500 Robb Holman: become more and more aware of what's attainable in and through you. So you've been awakened, and perhaps you could be the one that helps awaken the rest. But there's only one way to tell. Stick it out just a little longer to see,
00:56:49.370 --> 00:57:01.730 Robb Holman: and she was greatly encouraged by that. So I don't know we'll see. Maybe i'll get a message in a in a in a few months, Rob, I stuck it out. The whole culture is changing now, but even if it doesn't uh in the long term, work out for her
00:57:01.740 --> 00:57:17.819 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: hopefully. She takes that mindset that heart with her wherever she goes. Right right. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful note to end the show on. Thank you, Rob. If If people want to learn more about your work, if they want to find you, is their website someplace, they can go
00:57:17.830 --> 00:57:47.820 Robb Holman: yeah tons of different websites.
