ZingTrain has graciously allowed me to replay their webinars on my channel. I've collected 16 of them into a series of deep dive business lessons. This is part two of series 1 on the broad topic of Visioning and Leadership. This gets into the specific topic of managing ourselves to be good leaders. Screen Shot 2016-07-18 at 10.49.31 PM
I've found in my discussions with leaders in the area of inspired and intentional organizations, self-reflection and starting with ourselves is a big part of creating a more human culture.

This is my repodcast with Amy Emberling, Managing Partner of Zingerman’s Bakehouse and Candy Manufactory.
Amy Emberling, Managing Partner of Zingerman’s Bakehouse, has been an avid food lover and baker since her childhood in Nova Scotia, Canada where she often treated friends to after-school concoctions. She grew up in a family business and always hoped to have her own business one day.
In addition to her work at the Bakehouse, Amy also teaches seminars for ZingTrain in two seminars: Leading with Zing and Bottom Line Training. She is also one of the partners of Zingerman’s Candy Manufactory (with Charlie Frank), which was developed in the bakery.
In this episode we talk a bit about:
Letting systems help during those times when your people aren’t at their best.
Finding and hiring the right kind of people.
One way of defining success for each member of your team.
Culture and pulling dissenting opinions to make the team stronger.
Having the difficult conversations.
Keeping excitement and focus for a long term vision.

The group at ZingTrain were kind enough to give me permission to share episodes from their free webinar series. I've collected a few into 4 areas of business.
Series one is based on getting a good start with Visioning and Leadership. Begin with yourself by understanding the concept of mindfulness and self management. Learn the importance of being a servant leader. And then move onto creating a vision you and your team can believe in.
Once you have a vision you can move onto series 2 and begin to work on building the team around you to reach those goals. Here you learn how to tune up your team so they operate at full capacity. Once they're running you learn how to effectively measure their success with performance reviews. Because change is constant you will learn how to undertake bottom-line change.
In order for your team to work independently and fully engaged in how the company generates cash and runs profitably, you will deep deep dive into Open Book Management, or OBM. You'll learn what it is. Then you will learn how to make the concept of tracking numbers fun by playing games. After running OBM for a while, the ZingTrain crew share the lessons they've learned. Some years you will struggle hitting those targets. If so, listen to FIVE FANTASTIC TIPS TO MEET YOUR ANNUAL TARGETS.
You're in a perfect state of zen, have a great team, and are operating with open book management like no one's business. How do you handle the growth? They've got you covered with series 4. Instead of necessarily growing your core business, why not start a community of businesses? Who's going to run all these new businesses? Why not create a system to make employees owners and the processes used to accomplish this?
Here's the entire library of free webinars you can find at ZingTrain's site.

This is a rebroadcast, or is that repodcast, of my entire chat with Cindy Stein, Greene County Missouri Auditor.
In this election season, and frankly a season of discontent and anger over government, I felt it important to look at one way of bring trust back to government. Opening up books and being more transparent should be the default of all government, but sadly it's not and we've let it become that way.
But Cindy shows that there is another way and that it can work.
