The Foundation

Aaron talks about how authenticity is the foundation of what they are building at Iron Sharpens Iron. Aaron says it is important to be vulnerable and transparent, because it allows you to overcome the difficulties in our lives. He also says getting up in front of people and being transparent is encouraging and inspiring to them. This can build a cycle of transparency and authenticity that benefits everyone involved.

“The more you are transparent with people, it gives them permission to be transparent with you, and now we have an authentic conversation.” -Aaron Walker

 

Personal Bias

Aaron says by telling the truth, people can spare others of the challenges that they have faced. People also have a tough time seeing their own flaws, and having others being honest with you and your flaws can lead to great changes. He uses the duct tape activity as an example. One person sits in the middle with duct tape on their mouth so they cannot speak, while the group around them gives their honest opinion on things they can improve. The more people that share the same view on someone can change how they view themselves and their flaws, and this ultimately helps people work on their flaws.

“The more people share in those groups and the more they are honest with the people that are participating, the more it helps them.” -Aaron Walker

 

The Reasons People Hide

Aaron talks about the reasons that people are not transparent. He says the main reason is because of trust. If people are not sure if they can trust you, they usually won’t be fully transparent. Aaron stresses how important it is to be a trustworthy person, and to be confidential when someone tells you their story. Aaron also says there has to be a good time and place to be vulnerable. This is not small talk, this can’t be something that gets brought up at the dinner table.

“I highly recommend that you don't form a new relationship and air all of your dirty laundry immediately, people have to earn the respect to share at this intimate level we are referring to.” -Aaron Walker

I Can Afford It

Aaron talks about how he and his wife decided to sell their house and buy a smaller house. This has helped him realize what was important to him. For instance, family is something that means the world to Aaron. Once you are able to sit down and think about this, make sure to always take your family into consideration.

 

What Is Getting In Your Way?

Aaron asks us to evaluate what is getting in the way of our lives and what is most important to us. He would like us to take some time and really dive deep into these underlying issues. Is there something that is getting in between you and your family?

“Always air on the side of your family. Businesses don’t have feelings but family does.” - Aaron Walker

Expert Interview with Bob Burg

Posted by Aaron Walker on Oct 16, 2019 8:00:00 AM

Up next you can hear Aaron Walker sit down with Bob Burg.

Bob Burg is a sought out speaker for company leadership and sale conferences. Bob talks with broadcast personalities and a former President. Bob has been named by the American management association as one of the top 30 most influential thought leaders in business.

We hope you enjoy the podcast. All the highlights, resources, and next steps can be found below. Listen to the full episode HERE and learn more at viewfromthetop.com.

VFTTpodcast

Why another book on leadership?

Bob says that he loves leadership and there is still so much to be learned. Bob talks about influence and how leadership is intertwined with it. The book shares more of a story rather than a how-to book.

Bob believes leadership is changing and there can be an endless amount of books on the topic.

 

What is a Go-Giver?

Someone understands that they are given an enormous responsibility to bring value to those they lead. Bob describes to move from the “I” to the “other focus” and put the interest of others before their own.

“When we think of traditional leadership we sometimes think of the stereotype that the leader is all about themselves. I do feel that this is changing though.” Bob Burg

With a go-giver leader, they willingly give up their self-interest and understands the more value they bring around them, the more it will benefit the organization.

It takes vision and holding on to that vision to be a successful leader. Doing this helps create unity with the community and see the goal.

 

Keys to Leadership

  1. Hold your vision
  2. Getting others to see your vision so they too can become leaders
  3.   Everybody Matters
  4.     Having people feel good about their work
  5.    Stand for something
  6.    Who you are is one of the most important aspects of being a leader
  7.    “When someone has a high character we trust them because they stand for something” Bob Burg
  8.    Practice giving leadership
  9.    Handing over leadership to others
  10.    Coach those that are in a leadership position
  11.     Great leadership can trickle down

 

Hiring Traits

Bob says he would look for someone that has a history of the “other”. Having the person focused on the team and not the individual self. If you have that as a starting base, then you can look to get to the level 5 leader.

 

“The level 5 leader will take the blame and assign the credit.” Bob Burg

 

The level 5 leader will be the leader that is there for you and will run through a wall for you if they have to.

 

Top 3 Pieces of Advice

  1. Understand people do things for their reasons, not our reasons
  2. A great leader always asks questions: How do my goals align with their goals?
  3. Understand earning trust will be your most valuable asset
  4. Understand the prevalence of technology is vast, but it is always about the people

How to Accomplish your Three Year Vision

Posted by Aaron Walker on Oct 9, 2019 8:00:00 AM

Today I’m joined live with Aaron Walker and we’re going to talk about our live event and the come as be party we’re going to throw ...

The Story

In The Success Principles, Jack Canfield talks about attending a Come as You’ll be Party in 1986.  Guests were encouraged to come with book covers, awards, clothes, and pictures that showed them as they would be living 5 years in advance.  At this event, Jack showed the cover of his New York Times bestselling book - that was nothing but a dream at that point.

In 1993 the first Chicken Soup for the Soul was released and Jack went on to write over 80 books.  More than 500 million Chicken Soup books have been sold—and the original has been translated into 40 languages.  Jack says that party flooded their minds with powerful images of already having achieved their aspirations.

Seneca says If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favorable.

Habakkuk 2:2 from the Old Testament says: Write the vision down so that those who read it will run.

These quotes speak to how powerful vision is in our lives.



Come As You Will Be Live Event?

Aaron talks about having a vision and making it come to be.  You have to believe it in your mind first and then it will happen.  The theme caused members to talk in the future and envision where they would be.  

“At the time I stood up and shared my future I hadn’t even written my book and said I would have 10 mastermind groups.  It was scary. Now my book is written and we are getting ready to launch our 15th mastermind group and I am 50% greater than where I thought I would be and I am a year ahead of schedule.” - Aaron Walker

 

Mindset Change

You must work your way to it becoming real and not just perceived.  Aaron talks about what has to happen today. You must focus on the things that matter and plan. The 12 Week Year has changed the way we do things.  In Iron Sharpens Iron we have daily and weekly accountability partners that keeps us going.

“In Iron Sharpens Iron we focus on the task not the goal.” - Aaron Walker
