On the School of Thought Podcast we play my team building card game #cardsagainstmundanity. The host of show came from Los Angeles to Dallas and we played the game in my condo (with a mimosa and my Jack Russell and better half, Angie). See how it works live. 12,000 people are using it. Short 20min episode.
Here is what Ryan Cowden, podcast host, had to say:
“Hi everyone! This is just a reminder to check out an extra special bonus of the School of Thought Podcast! This week Jason and I play his card game Cards Against Mundanity. In this special episode, Jason talks about the research that went into the game and how he uses it to create community between coworkers. Then we dove in and played it for real. If you want to create the same openness and dialogue in your classroom I think this is a great place to start.”

Train Your Business Team Like the Navy SEALs w/ Jason Treu on the B2B Revenue Podcast. http://b2brevexec.libsyn.com/train-your-business-team-like-the-navy-seals-w-jason-treu
If you want to be a good leader, take accountability for finding the potential in people and developing it.
I recently interviewed Jason Treu, an executive coach who focuses on leadership.
I learned that if you want to proactively reach your team, it’s better to look at someone’s behavior pattern like a computer program. Objectively.
That’s exactly what the Navy SEALs do. They ask these questions:
– What were our intended results?
– What were the actual results?
– What went well?
– What didn’t go well?
– What did we learn from this?
– What can we implement moving forward?
It is not emotional. It’s looking at a situation objectively. They don’t place blame. It’s not about failure.
Even if everything went right, the mentality is to discover what they can get better.
It’s neither good nor bad. It’s a computer program. You have the choice to be right or you have a choice to be happy, successful, and fulfilled because the pattern that was successful then, is now sabotaging your success and eventually will crater it.
Re-training yourself to approach problems in this way is “part science, and part art.” But it can result in huge payoffs for the individual and the company.
