    Podcast Summary

    • The Influence of Early Trauma on Personal Growth and SuccessEarly traumatic events can shape a person's character, but they are not the sole determinant of success. Extreme circumstances may fuel drive, but they are not necessary for achieving greatness.

      Early traumatic events can shape a person's character and contribute to their complexities. Julian Metcalfe's experience of losing his mother to suicide at a young age had a significant impact on his life, influencing his relationships, work ethic, and overall worldview. While he acknowledges that this event must have played a role in his personal and professional growth, Julian also emphasizes that it is not the sole determinant of success or the ability to make a positive impact in society. While many successful individuals have experienced extreme circumstances that fueled their obsession and drive, it is not a necessary requirement for achieving greatness.

    • Overcoming Challenges and Embracing IndependenceNurturing environments and trusting relationships are pivotal in building confidence and strength, especially for those who have faced challenges and lack of support from authority figures.

      The absence of parents in their lives led both Julian Metcalfe and Steven Bartlett to develop independence and a sense of responsibility at a young age. They both faced challenges and difficult relationships with authority figures, which fueled their desire to create their own paths in life. Julian's negative experiences with his parents and upbringing taught him to deeply distrust authority and prioritize working with people he trusts and respects. Similarly, Steven's independence and lack of parental guidance led him to become an entrepreneur and rely on his own understanding of human behavior to achieve success. This conversation highlights the common experiences many people have of being let down by authority figures and emphasizes the importance of finding supportive and nurturing environments to cultivate confidence and strength.

    • The Power of Transparency in Business and RelationshipsTransparency builds trust, motivates employees, and creates a positive work environment, while also avoiding misleading claims and hidden agendas. Demand honesty and seek opportunities that prioritize transparency.

      Transparency is crucial in building successful businesses and relationships. Both Julian Metcalfe and Steven Bartlett emphasize the importance of being open, honest, and sharing information in the world of commerce. Transparency not only fosters trust but also motivates employees and creates a positive work environment. It allows for a better understanding of the true nature of businesses, avoiding misleading claims or hidden agendas. However, they acknowledge that many businesses lack transparency due to fear, insecurity, or protecting their own interests. In today's interconnected world, with platforms like social media and Glassdoor, it is harder to hide the truth. Thus, the call is to demand honesty and transparency and seek opportunities that prioritize these values.

    • Building Trust and Openness in Business and RelationshipsTransparency and affection are essential for creating a positive and thriving environment in both personal and professional relationships.

      Transparency and honesty are crucial for successful businesses and relationships. In today's interconnected world, lies and lack of transparency can have detrimental effects on employees and their well-being. It is important for employers to create an environment where people feel comfortable expressing themselves and being honest about their feelings. Building a culture of transparency and openness can lead to more satisfied employees and ultimately, a more successful organization. Additionally, the conversation highlights the significance of affection and love in personal and professional relationships. Affection, along with trust and deep connections, can lead to a supportive and thriving environment. Ultimately, promoting transparency and fostering affectionate relationships can contribute to individual growth and overall success.

    • The Impact of Early Experiences on Behavior and RelationshipsUnderstanding and learning from our early experiences can help us build healthy and fulfilling relationships by cultivating warmth, kindness, forgiveness, and love, as well as seeking validation, self-acceptance, and personal growth.

      The experiences and patterns we witnessed in our early lives greatly influence our behavior and relationships as adults. Julian Metcalfe and Steven Bartlett both discuss their struggles with feelings of unworthiness and difficulties in forming meaningful connections. Julian attributes his challenges to a lack of nurturing and love during his upbringing, while Steven's stemmed from witnessing a dysfunctional relationship between his parents. Both acknowledge the importance of understanding and learning from these experiences in order to build healthy and fulfilling relationships. They recognize the value of studying and admiring supportive and loving relationships and aspire to cultivate warmth, kindness, forgiveness, and love in their own lives. Ultimately, they highlight the significance of seeking validation, self-acceptance, and personal growth in overcoming these challenges.

    • Achieving True Success: Impact, Relevance, and Relationships.True success is not measured by hard work or wealth alone. It lies in making a meaningful impact, staying relevant, and nurturing relationships to create a fulfilling life.

      Success is not solely determined by hard work or money. It is about making a meaningful impact, being relevant, and creating relationships that allow others to flourish. Julian Metcalfe emphasizes that while many people work hard, only a few achieve true success because they lack focus and the ability to make positive changes. Money alone does not bring happiness or fulfillment, as Julian witnessed through his mother's experience. Instead, the drive to make a difference and be admired, coupled with the desire to create valuable relationships with colleagues, holds more significance. Balancing personal relationships with career aspirations is challenging but worth striving for, as it is possible to have both and find fulfillment in both areas of life.

    • The keys to building a successful business: resourcefulness, determination, creativity, and confidence.Success in business requires hard work, working with talented individuals, embracing failure, fostering innovation, and building strong relationships within the team.

      Building a successful business requires resourcefulness, determination, and endless moments of creativity and confidence. Julian Metcalfe emphasizes the importance of being resourceful and working with geniuses to create the best product or service. He believes that success doesn't come overnight, but through hard work and relentless pursuit of excellence. Additionally, he highlights the significance of being brave, hiring talented individuals, and listening to others. Failure is seen as a part of the journey and is embraced rather than feared. Julian's experience with Pratt demonstrates that a business's specialness is often not planned but arises from moments of magic and innovation. Finally, he stresses the value of creating pride, trust, and strong relationships within the team.

    • Embracing Failure and Taking Risks for SuccessSuccess requires stepping into uncharted territory, accepting failure, and taking calculated risks. Building a supportive, transparent, and open culture is essential for long-term success.

      In order to create something new and succeed, one must be willing to step into uncharted territory and be prepared to fail multiple times. Success is not just about moments of glory, but also about moments of failure and bravery. It is important to take risks and trust your instincts. By thinking outside the box and challenging traditional systems, one can find innovative solutions. Building a supportive and trusting culture is essential for the success of a business or team. People thrive when they are given opportunities to be themselves and are nurtured in a transparent and open environment. It is not just about short-term goals or monetary gains, but about creating a sense of purpose and trust.

Julian Metcalfe emphasizes the importance of prioritizing product quality and customer satisfaction over purely focusing on numbers and profit margins. By giving away sandwiches and implementing a system for staff to freely give products to customers, they were able to create a culture of kindness and generosity. This approach not only attracted loyal customers but also led to increased profits in some of the most profitable stores. Despite facing skepticism and lack of numerical evidence, the belief in the power of building relationships and providing exceptional service drove their decision-making process. Trusting in this philosophy has proven successful for both Julian Metcalfe and Steven Bartlett.

      Julian Metcalfe acknowledges and admires those who take control of their lives and make bold choices, even though he personally may not possess the same desire for adventure and change. He expresses contentment with his own life and the satisfaction he derives from creating and innovating in his business. However, he also recognizes the shift in dynamics and priorities when external factors, such as private equity and corporate acquisitions, come into play. Julian emphasizes the importance of balancing the pursuit of a successful business with maintaining genuine relationships with customers and staff. Despite not being involved in the business anymore, he reflects positively on the strong relationships built within the company and remains inspired by their accomplishments. He does not harbor disappointment or feeling of regret, recognizing that different individuals bring different perspectives and strategies to the table.

    • Creating Affordable Nutritious Food: Julian Metcalfe's JourneyContinuous reinvention and adaptability are crucial for business success. Maintaining control and supporting the team in difficult times, along with a strong record in health and safety, contribute to overcoming crises.

      Julian Metcalfe is focused on creating a remarkable home for affordable nutritious food through his businesses Itsoo and Prex. Despite the initial challenges and complexities, he believes that both companies will continue to evolve and thrive in the coming years. Metcalfe emphasizes the importance of continuous reinvention and being adaptable to the changing market demands. He shares the story of how Itsoo started as a result of a conversation with a young Japanese woman who wanted to create an affordable Japanese restaurant. Metcalfe also highlights the significance of being a 100% private company, allowing him to maintain control and protect his vision. Additionally, he acknowledges the ups and downs in business and the need to reassure and support his team during difficult times. Metcalfe's confidence in overcoming crises stems from sticking to the truth and maintaining a strong record in health and safety.

Both Julian Metcalfe and Steven Bartlett share stories of shocking incidents that changed their lives and caused them to think differently. Whether it's the tragic incident of a young girl passing away on a plane or the discovery of a long-lost daughter, these experiences deeply affected their outlooks. Despite the hardships, both individuals have taken steps to navigate these challenges and strive for healing and strength. This conversation reminds us that life is unpredictable, and it is our resilience and determination that allows us to overcome difficult situations and form meaningful connections with others.

    • Honesty, courage, and personal growth in challenging circumstances.Embracing honesty and courage in difficult situations can lead to personal growth, positive outcomes, and the opportunity to build strong relationships and embrace one's true identity.

      Honesty and courage can lead to growth and positive outcomes.

This act, although agonizing, allowed the protagonist to embrace her identity and build a strong relationship with her real father and her siblings. Additionally, the conversation emphasizes the importance of embracing opportunities for personal growth, as showcased by the protagonist's successful career and positive experiences at Bristol University. Finally, the conversation highlights the value of gratitude and contentment, as the protagonist expresses their satisfaction with their life and their recognition of the abundance and privileges they possess.

    • Embracing Imperfections for Personal Growth and Relationship SuccessAcknowledging and working on our flaws, rather than hiding or denying them, allows us to foster meaningful relationships and continuously grow as individuals.

      Embracing and accepting our inadequacies is crucial for personal growth and thriving in relationships. Julian Metcalfe emphasizes the importance of acknowledging our flaws and working on them rather than denying or hiding them. He suggests that instead of focusing on one specific inadequacy to work on, it is better to embrace all our imperfections and use them as opportunities for self-improvement. By recognizing our own shortcomings and being open about them, we can foster healthier and more meaningful relationships. This mindset of self-awareness and continuous growth allows us to maintain empathy, warmth, and a commitment to truth, which are essential qualities for success in both personal and professional realms.

    Moment 171: STOP DOING THIS! It's Ruining Your Sex Life
    In this moment, world-renowned philosopher and thinker Alain De Botton discusses how communication can lead to a better sex life. Alain says sex is like a mirror to the relationship as a whole. If something is wrong with a couples sex life, it’s usually a symptom of a wider problem. He says that a first step towards a more fulfilling sex life is reflecting on how you are as a partner. Being open about yourself in a relationship is the best way to create mutual trust, which means that you can ‘tease’ out any issue in a relationship. This then leads to being open with one another sexually.

    Moment 170: The Scientific Method For Unstoppable Confidence: Professor Steve Peters
    In this moment, elite sport psychologist, Professor Steve Peters discusses the way to overcome low self-esteem. Often low self-esteem manifests itself outwardly in abusive relationships, the wrong career, and impulsive behaviours. Dr Peters says these are ‘maladaptive coping strategies’, where you are punishing yourself, thinking that you don’t deserve to treat yourself well, as you believe that you fundamentally don’t deserve happiness. Dr Peters says the solution can be as simple as getting a blank piece of paper and writing down who you want to be, and what behaviours you want to have. He says that this exercise works, as once you remove the interference of your mind, this person you hope to become is actually you, as you are defining yourself.

    Moment 169: CIA Spy Reveals How To AVOID Media Manipulation & Brainwashing: Andrew Bustamante

    Moment 169: CIA Spy Reveals How To AVOID Media Manipulation & Brainwashing: Andrew Bustamante
    In this moment, the former CIA intelligence officer Andrew Bustamante discusses the crucial techniques of manipulation, which he describes as a core part of CIA training. Andrew  introduces the R.I.C.E. analogy, which stands for Reward, Ideology, Coercion, and Ego. This framework is essential for understanding the motivations of others, allowing you to connect with them, build relationships, and influence their actions. According to Andrew, reward involves anything the other person desires, while ideology reflects the person’s core beliefs and is the most powerful element of the acronym. Coercion involves using negative behaviours on someone such as guilt or blackmail, and ego relates to how the other person sees themselves. Andrew translates this manipulation technique to marketing. He suggests that by sending targeted messages to your audience and assessing their responses, you gain insights into their ideology, providing you with useful information for future sales.

In this moment, world-renowned human performance expert, Kristen Holmes gives a simple break down of this rhythm and its massive impacts. Kirsten says that the circadian rhythm is basically physical, mental and behavioral changes that happen over a 24 hour cycle. All of these changes are controlled by a master clock in your brain regulating every cell in your body through chemical signals. Disrupting this rhythm can cause massive health consequence such as cancer, metabolic and cardiovascular disease, as well as mental health issues.

    4 Leadership Struggles I Had to Overcome

    4 Leadership Struggles I Had to Overcome

    Lonely Leadership

    What are leadership struggles? Many leaders act as if the point they’ve reached in their careers was easy to reach. From my perspective, as I progressed throughout my career, I ran into many different struggles. These struggles are some that I believe every leader will encounter. Rather than hiding these struggles from you, I will be putting them out in the sunlight for all of you to see. I have come to realize that all leaders are alike. As much as we think we are different, we are not as unique as we think. We all share the same struggles. On today’s show, I will be discussing the various struggles all leaders face and how to counteract them.

    The first leadership struggle I’ve encountered is lonely leadership. As you progress through an organization it gets harder to find people that understand you. Great leaders are told that transparency is a must. Be transparent. Share things with others around you. While transparency holds importance, is it always the answer? Transparency is only important to a point. There are some things you should not be transparent about.

    You should never be transparent about your self-doubt. Being open about your struggles with employees can cause them concern about your organization. Secondly, never be transparent about your opinion of others. Especially key stakeholders. They will find out. My philosophy is to never burn a bridge no matter what. This decision has come back to benefit me throughout my career.

    Thirdly, never be transparent about confidential information shared with you. I’ve seen may promising leaders sidelined because of issues of integrity and trust. Building a reputation of integrity as a leader is crucial. It can be lost in just one decision. Don’t make that mistake. This will shatter your career. Being a leader is lonely. Who can you share things with? Your spouse? Not always. I remember when I was at Teligent and we were the hottest new thing. We were on the cover of Business Week, Forbes, WSJ, NY Times etc. My wife was at her hairdresser one day, and the hairdresser was drilling her about information on Teligent. He assumed she had access to confidential information and was getting aggressive. After that, me and my wife came to an agreement to protect her. I do not share any confidential information with her. Never. She doesn’t want to be in that position.

    Is there anyone you can be transparent with? Your coach or mentor. Let your board/shareholders know that you have a coach or mentor. If you’re going to share confidential information with someone, they should sign a non-disclosure agreement. All of this said, you will be lonely as a leader. It comes with the position. Do you have someone that you can be transparent with?

     

     

    What Got You Here Won’t Keep You Here

    Will the skills that helped you reach your position keep you there? These things will not keep you here or progress you in your career. Look at me for instance. My specialty is technical work. I have not touched technical work in 15 years. I had to learn new skills in order to advance. How did I learn those different skills? Right out of college, I was told by my mentor Bob that in order to find success, I had to broaden my playing fields. I knew my specialty very well, but I needed to have a variety of experiences. What did I do? I rotated in marketing, sales, finance, IT, etc. I did everything. While these experiences broadened my knowledge, it wasn’t enough. What were the skillsets that brought me to success?

    • Organization design - How do you structure a team? You have to be willing to adjust in order to create a successful organizational structure.
    • People Reading - Each person is unique and you have to commit to learning them.
    • Consensus BuildingLearn the individuals and their objectives. I do one on one calls with each member of my board before meetings. This helps me to get a better grasp on the thoughts and feelings of each member.
    • Objective Setting – How do you set good objectives? use OKR’s/make sure they are clear and measurable. Grant autonomy letting your experts use their skills to achieve ultimate success.

     

    Consequences of Ideas and Statements

    Ideas and statements made as a leader have consequences. Things will get taken out of context and all the sudden they become the “new law”. When I was CEO at Cable Labs, I told my team that the most common statement they would hear was “Phil said”. In many cases what I said was misinterpreted or misused. The best proof point of this in my career is press coverage. If you google my name and read the articles on the first 16 pages of google, not a single article got the situation 100% correct. At Cable Labs, we had issues with the press pushing out false information. This caused employees to start worrying about the longevity of our Colorado office. I had to call a meeting with my all my employees to address this issue. I made a commitment to my staff that day that they would hear from me first, and not the press. In fact, this created a new culture at Cable Labs called the “no surprise rule” to constantly remind my employees of this. Why do I do this? Because ideas and statements can be a disaster. You need to be hyper-vigilant about what you say, how you say it, and how you operate. Are you conveying statements the right way?

     

    Creative Self-Doubt

    What is the number one skill leaders are expected to have? Creativity/ ingenuity leading to product, service, and operational innovation. Many leaders get promoted to a leadership role because of innovation they are credited with. Look at Nobel Laureates. There is a trend of peaks seen from the recipients of Nobel awards. One in their mid-twenties and one in their mid-fifties. The question comes down to this. Do you still have your creativity?

     

    What type of innovator are you?

    Conceptual Innovators - “Think outside the box,” challenging conventional wisdom and suddenly coming up with new ideas. Conceptual innovators tend to peak early in their careers.

     

    Experimental Innovators - Accumulate knowledge through their careers and find groundbreaking ways to analyze, interpret and synthesize that information into new ways of understanding. The long periods of trial and error required for important experimental innovations make them tend to occur late in a Nobel laureate’s career. Success comes from recognizing that as an innovator we need to shift from the conceptual to the experimental.
