Dealing with What You Don't Know

Recently Dan Cockerell announced a significant career shift. After spending five and a half years traveling and teaching worldwide, he has embraced the opportunity in Australia to return to a leadership role. Throughout his entrepreneurial journey, Dan and his wife Valerie have used their knowledge and experience to inspire and teach others. However, life led them to unexpected paths and opportunities, prompting them embark on a new adventure. During our conversation we discuss some of the challenges that have come with navigating unknown territory in a new job.

One of the things Dan is great at is his willingness to admit that there are things he doesn't know. Even better is his commitment to seeking guidance and insight. He emphasizes the significance of acknowledging one's blind spots and humbly reaching out to industry experts for advice. Through humility and curiosity you can foster a continuous learning mindset, which is critical for leaders.

As he transitions to the education industry, Dan understands the importance of cultivating a mission-driven focus in a for-profit organization. There is a delicate balance between delivering educational impact while ensuring the organization's financial sustainability. This is something felt by entrepreneurs and leaders in various sectors. There is often a unique dance between mission, profitability, and the need to make impactful decisions that benefit all stakeholders.

Something I often share is the power of meaningful connections and networking. That starts by seeking guidance and insight from your own team. Dan has often seen success when leaders advocate for a collaborative decision-making process that helps leverage the expertise and insights of the collective team. Successful organizations utilize collaboration and collective wisdom to guide strategic decisions.

As Dan prepares for his move to Australia, he recognizes the importance of understanding cultural nuances and interpersonal dynamics in a new work environment. Lean into genuine curiosity about a culture and having an eagerness to adapt to new terminologies. Change is not always easy, but approach it with a growth mindset and openness to embracing unfamiliar experiences.

Dan's journey serves as a testament to the power of connection, adaptability, and continuous learning. Take a listen to this episode for more about embracing a new adventure, seeking new opportunities, and approaching life with curiosity and authenticity.

The Impact of Stories

Richard Stone, recent guest and author of "Story Intelligence," returns to the show to ask me three thought-provoking questions. His questions lead us to a conversation about the influence of personal stories. It is always amazing how recalling stories can lead to powerful moments of self-reflection and connection. This shows the significance of sharing experiences and the impact it has on resilience and growth.

The first power of stories is their ability to transport us to different places and times. As I reminisce about my childhood I recall a fond memory of the movie "The Outlaw Josey Wales." The geographical setting of the movie really hit me and my family history in Missouri. Movies and shows are perfect examples of the emotional connection and nostalgic impact of storytelling. Just ask young Jody why he was so set on setting up a tape recorder to capture movie dialogues.

Instrumental reminiscence is the act of remembering challenging times and learning from them. A poignant memory for me was my father's battle with cancer. As I think about that time, I’ve discovered that while there was a perception of stoicism and bravery, it masked my father’s underlying vulnerability and fear. Realizing this helps shape my approach to openness and communication with my own children. This experience showcases the significant influence of personal challenges on parenting and resilience.

Envisioning new possibilities begins with a willingness to embrace the excitement of the unknown. There is something to be said about purposefully navigating through life with an adventurous spirit. My own journey from the heart of Illinois to the west coast is a reminder of the power envisioning new horizons can have on our personal and professional transformation. Richard points out that an openness to change and unwavering curiosity ignites a passion for embracing life's uncertainties. That is what will lead us to unexpected career shifts and enriching experiences.

Our personal stories have the power to uplift, inspire, and connect. While it may not feel easy, finding a willingness to share vulnerable moments helps remind others of the power of storytelling. It’s one of the best ways to foster empathy and resilience. Make sure to listen to this episode for a vulnerable conversation on the impact of stories.

48 Lessons Celebrating Dan Miller

Dan Miller is a successful entrepreneur and author who has dedicated his career to helping others find meaningful and fulfilling work. He is the creator of 48Days.com, a website filled with resources and ideas for those seeking to start their own businesses. In this special episode, I am celebrating Dan Miller by sharing 48 lessons from him. That’s a number that’s significant to his brand. After receiving the news of Dan’s cancer diagnosis, I knew when he saw and heard that I was doing 48 lessons celebrating Dan Miller, it would make him smile. So, I did 48 just to make Dan Miller smile.

Dan's significant achievements came after the age of 53. That’s a great reminder that success knows no age limit. Embrace the non-linear process of life stages and keep pursuing your dreams with perseverance and determination.

Dan's principle of "pay to cut to the front of the line" emphasizes the value of investing time and money into building personal relationships. Authentic connections are the backbone of success. Prioritize nurturing genuine relationships for long-term growth and opportunities.

Dan's fearless approach to uncertainty and potential failure highlights the importance of seizing opportunities with innovation and creativity. Embrace change, take calculated risks, and keep innovating to carve out your unique place in the marketplace. In the spirit of celebration and continued growth, let’s aim to embody the lessons from Dan Miller's journey and make them a part of our own stories. Let's honor Dan’s legacy by staying true to our passions, embracing change with grace, and finding fulfillment in our unique paths.

The 48 lessons are only a fraction of what I have gained from Dan's remarkable journey and friendship. Make sure to listen to this episode and share it with someone else that could feel the impact of the lessons. As Dan has said, “the sharing of ideas is a powerful thing."

 Story Intelligence

Storytelling can have a profound impact on our personal and professional lives. Richard Stone is a nationally recognized speaker and author on the power of storytelling. His knowledge on "story intelligence" has brought value to industries including business, healthcare, and education.  Don't get confused though. Story Intelligence is not about improving IQ. It's about seeing the world as a story, opening us up to possibilities, and elevating the quality of our lives.

Storytelling isn't just for bedtime. It's a powerful tool that shapes our lives, our businesses, and even our brains. It can also help build connection and empathy. When we hear someone else's story, it's as though we step into their world, creating a deep level of connection and understanding.

This is often seen through the stories we tell with our own families. Family stories have a significant impact on children's resilience and self-esteem. Children who know their family's stories are better equipped to face difficulties, as they have reference points to draw inspiration from. Our lives are stories in the making, and they are worth sharing with others.

 By becoming the author of our own story, we gain authority over our lives and open ourselves to new possibilities. The shared experience of storytelling connects us, inspires us, and shapes our lives. When done well, they make our lives richer and more meaningful.

Whether you're a parent, a business owner, or just someone who loves a good story, remember that storytelling isn't just a pastime or a skill. It is a fundamental part of what makes us human. The power of storytelling goes beyond personal growth by connecting us emotionally. The stories we tell can change lives.
