"Don't impose your bad day on other people - use problems as an opportunity to innovate and create better experiences than before."

Recently I was able to experience the magic of creative problem-solving firsthand when Cassie and I put on the Creative Magic Mastermind in Orlando with Lee Cockerell. We had to be flexible due to a hurricane and ended up having to make last minute changes to where the event was hosted. It ended up being a great experience. As we talk about everything that happened at the event we recognized several valuable lessons. One great reminder is that it is important to not impose your bad day on other people. We were able to use the problem as an opportunity to create an even better experience. It is possible to make a great experience even with changes.

In this episode, you will learn:

1. What is the importance of being flexible when hosting events?

2. How can problem solving create new opportunities?

3. How can businesses create a consistently great customer experience, even when changes occur?

Episode Highlights

[00:01:36]

We quickly learned the importance of being flexible because we had a hurricane in Florida not too soon before the Mastermind. Right before the event, our venue was no longer available because of hurricane damage.

[00:05:07]

Don't impose your bad day on other people. Try to create the solution before presenting it to the rest of the team. Sometimes those problems do create opportunities.

[00:10:02]

Don't bring your bad day on stage with you and make it a customer's problem. Your behavior, the way you treat people, all of that now is part of a product. Use problem as an opportunity.

[00:17:24]

The next Creating Magic Mastermind is coming up in April, so I look forward to seeing what lessons come from that. There will likely be many because once again there will be a lineup of fabulous guest speakers.

"We can all strive for a balanced lifestyle and create a better environment for ourselves and those around us."

During this episode Cassie and I talk with Djuan Rivers about how to get the most out of life. Djuan is a former Vice President of Disney Parks and Resorts, who now travels the world and inspires others to find balance in their lives and careers.

Djuan had a passion for travel and a balanced lifestyle, which he instilled in his team as a leader. His interest in traveling began in the 7th grade, when he wrote a letter to the Swiss Embassy. After that, he was determined to pursue his passion and set off on his own adventures, such as doing the seven summits. Through his experiences, Djuan learned the importance of trusting and verifying his team, as well as giving them opportunities to grow and take charge. That also is what allowed him to pursue his passions in life.

In this episode, you will discover:

1. How to maintain a balanced lifestyle while still being an effective leader

2. Exploring the concept of servant leadership

3. How a 7th grade writing assignment inspired a passion for travel and a balanced lifestyle.

"You are only a good leader if your operation runs in your absence being present."

Episode Highlights

[00:03:27]

For me, it was very important to ensure that I had a very balanced life. It was such an instrumental part of my development, my growth, and actually my identity. And I think even more so, realizing the importance of a balanced lifestyle.

[00:05:38]

You are only a good leader if your operation runs in your absence being present. You need to make sure that everyone around you is ready to go. Let the next generation take over and push it to the next level after you leave.

[00:06:52]

Make sure that you have a team in place that you trust and can pass off the baton. Let those around you use their skill-sets while you're there. And then in your absence, let them solve it. Then you yourself can then start to explore other things.

[00:09:36]

You should always say trust, but verify. Trust your leaders. Verify that what they're doing is great and give them feedback. Most leaders are talented. They just need you to get all the other unnecessary stuff out of their way. Your goal is to create the environment that allows them to accomplish.

[00:18:02]

Go out and find your thing. Work towards your thing and add that value to your life and to your professional career.

In this episode of The Jody Maberry Show, I broke my own rules and recorded using only my iPhone.

When I was with Jeff Noel this summer in Glacier National Park, Jeff wanted to record short podcast episodes using only the iPhone. I was hesitant at first, but we recorded the first episode sitting next to Grennell Glacier, and despite some initial technical difficulties, we produced a quality recording.

As Jeff and I reflected on our travel in the wilderness, I realized recording episodes on the iPhone could allow us to record anywhere, anytime.

Jeff Noel and I have been exploring ways to work from anywhere, and here is what we have learned:

You can work from anywhere if you're willing to break the rules and think outside the box.

You can work from anywhere if you're willing to take some risks. This may mean recording a podcast on your phone in an unusual location, as Jeff Noel did, or it may mean something else entirely. The important thing is to be open to new ideas and to experiment with different ways of doing things. With creativity, you can find ways to work from anywhere – even if it means breaking some of your rules. So go ahead, explore different ways of working, and see what works best for you. You may be surprised at how much you can accomplish by thinking outside the box.

Sometimes it's worth it to do something, even if you don't get anything tangible out of it.

This could mean doing something for the experience or the learning opportunity, and it could also mean doing something simply because it's fun or because it's a good memory. Whatever the reason, sometimes it's worth it to do something, even if there's no immediate payoff.

One example of this is traveling. It can be expensive and time-consuming, but it's also a great way to see new places and learn about different cultures. Another example is taking on a new hobby. It might not be something you're immediately good at, but learning something new and challenging can be rewarding. So next time you're considering whether or not to do something, ask yourself if it's worth it for the experience or the learning opportunity. You might be surprised at how often the answer is yes.

It's important to be open to change and strive for excellence constantly.
Do not be afraid to do something that you are not comfortable with. You should not be scared to experiment and try new things; this is the only way to truly learn and grow.

It's also important to be open to change and to constantly strive for excellence. This means that you should be willing to learn new things and experiment, and you should also be willing to work hard and push yourself to be the best you can be.
