Ben Albert - Building Your Own Empire
My guest today, Ben Albert, is the owner of Balbert Marketing LLC. He is also the curator of The “Real Business Connections Network,” where he hosts 5 podcasts, “Rochester Business Connections,” “Learn Speak Teach,” “Ben’s Bites,” “Five Minute Fridays,” and “Real Hits.” Once an underdog, now a successful entrepreneur, Ben is passionate about helping other underdogs achieve their dreams. In his own words after he started Balbert Marketing amid the Covid-19 pandemic: Let’s not beat around the bush, Coronavirus has pushed us to all evaluate our careers in one way or another. We all feel some level of fear, pain, or worry about friends, family, and the effects on our amazing nation. For me, I had to make a decision. Do I pick up binge eating, get lazy, and get used to staring at the wall? Or do I develop a business STRONGER than any company I’ve worked for in the past?

Stephen M.R. Covey Trust and Inspire
Here’s the premise of Trust & Inspire: while the world has changed, our style of leadership has not. Most leaders and organizations—faced with ever new and disrupting challenges—continue to operate from a base model of “Command & Control;” they’ve just become more advanced and sophisticated at it, what Stephen calls “Enlightened Command & Control.” In contrast to Command & Control, Trust & Inspire is all about unleashing greatness in others. Leading in a way that both inspires and empowers people to become the best version of themselves—tapping into a sense of purpose, meaning, contribution and inclusion. The result is a level of belonging, collaboration, and ultimately innovation that Command & Control is simply not capable of producing. Stephen has spent the last five years working to research, frame, define, and articulate why this kind of leadership is needed today, what is required of this kind of leader, and how this can be achieved. The future of work and leadership is moving from Command & Control to Trust & Inspire. This book is about how to do that. Stephen M. R. Covey is the New York Times and #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Speed of Trust, which has been translated into 22 languages and has sold over 2 million copies worldwide. He is also the author of the newly released Wall Street Journal bestseller, Trust & Inspire: How Truly Great Leaders Unleash Greatness in Others. Stephen brings to his writings the perspective of a practitioner, as he is the former President & CEO of the Covey Leadership Center, where he increased shareholder value by 67 times and grew the company to become the largest leadership development firm in the world.

Steve Rizzo Conversations with Bob
“Faith is the intangible force that comes to the rescue when your beliefs begin to falter.” – Rizzo-ism Steve Rizzo is the Attitude Adjuster. You can’t attend one of his live or virtual presentations and leave with the same attitude. He’s a personal development expert, comedian, motivational speaker, and best-selling Author. It’s no surprise that he’s been inducted into the Speaker Hall of Fame, an honor bestowed upon on fewer than 300 speakers worldwide since 1977. Once upon a time, Steve Rizzo was told by a guidance counselor that he didn’t have the intelligence for college. And having been saddled with the dubious high school honor of being voted “Least Likely to Succeed,” Steve didn’t give himself much of a chance to emerge as anything special, much less a world-class comedian or Hall of Fame speaker. Years of negativity had led him to believe that dreams were the luxury of only a fortunate few. He went on to surprise everyone, including himself, by excelling with honors at the university and post-graduate levels. Eventually, Steve even taught at his old high school, proving once and for all that guidance counselors are not fortune-tellers. Steve is the author of the bestselling books Conversations With Bob, Motivate THIS! and Get Your SHIFT Together, and is often called upon as the “go-to” guy on the topic of personal development for many network, cable & radio media outlets.

Dale Merrill - Are You Strikingly Different?
You are competing with the top salespeople in your industry for the same customers. For each sales opportunity, there is only one winner. What really works to stand out and sell more? In their book 'Strikingly Different Selling: 6 Vital Skills to Stand Out and Sell More', Dale Merrill, Scott Savage, Jennifer Colosimo, and Randy Illig (the sales performance experts at FranklinCovey) reveal the secrets to consistent, predictable sales success. In the new, hybrid live-online and in-person world, the classic techniques of selling are much less effective, sales pipelines are languishing, and buyer-seller interactions look and feel very different. Buyers can’t tell the differences between one salesperson’s offerings and another’s because everyone looks and sounds the same and competition is intense. Many salespeople aren’t getting first meetings or they’re conducting plenty of additional meetings that go nowhere, and they aren’t winning enough business. My guest Dale Merrill is a highly sought-after international speaker and trusted advisor to sales and business leaders at many of the world’s most admired companies. He is a global managing director in FranklinCovey’s sales performance practice where he helps clients dramatically grow revenues and profitability. For more than 30 years, Dale has led businesses and helped a wide range of clients solve challenges and win more business in virtually every region of the world.
