About the Episode
Being responsible for what you are doing is one of the most important aspects of building your desired business. Among the various aspects, it will help you to be a bold and brave business person. Our guest today is, Mr. Brent Lowe; founder of BASE Associates, a business coaching and consulting company, and author of ‘Lead Together’. Throughout the episode, we dive into three major concepts in the book, rules & agreements, types of power, radical responsibility, commitments, types of agreements, feedback and mutual curiosity, recruiting process, and more.
Starting the conversation, Brent talks about his book ‘Lead Together’ and adult dynamics, traditionally hierarchy, and, keeping entrepreneurial energy alive as the three major things that listeners may come across. Brent dives deep into four highlights which people can expect from this.; employee satisfaction and engagement as the most important concepts which an organization should have if they want to lead together, adult dynamic, making decisions and processing information directly, and entrepreneurialism and creativity.
Continuing the conversation, Brent dives into radical responsibility which means taking ownership of the events that occur in anything and the knowledge about the importance of the responsibility. Brent shares the two sides of radical responsibility; taking ownership and doing the things that you already committed and being willing to correct mistakes and helping the whole system.
The feeling of being part of any organizational process makes the employees more committed to the place they are working for. In the next phase of the conversation, Brent dives into what they are doing to make the employees feel that they are a part of this big process.
The process of recruitment differs from one organization to the other but there are characteristics in the process like the ability to take responsibility, the ability to stay in the game, creativity, ability, and willingness to try new things, experiment, and find solutions. Wrapping up the conversation, Brent dives into why he wrote the book and how can the readers find and try the solutions which may work for them that had been tried by another company with the same problem.
