LearnChair Radio host Bob Dragone interviews one of the world’s top leadership development experts, Sylvia Lafair, in this podcast. Sylvia explains how a childhood tragedy led her to become a psychologist and how her work with family structures evolved into her leadership development methods.  Sylvia realized that bosses are like parents, co-workers like siblings, and wages like allowances.  Her program is called Total Leadership Connections.  Her insight was to recognize that people develop patterns that may cause them problems in a work environment.  Her program is a deep dive into patterns as leaders.  Her methodology includes what she terms OUT - observing patterns, understanding where they come from and transforming them into new patterns for leadership success.  She also uses what she calls a SANKOSA map, a term that means clearing the past to free the future.  HR.COM has judged Sylvia’s program to be one of the best for seven years running.  Sylvia is the author of Don’t Bring It To Work, a book available on amazon.com that summarizes her approach and methods.  Sylvia is also the author of GUTSY - How Women Leaders Make Change, where she urges women to stand up for themselves.  Integrity is the one characteristic Sylvia believes every leaders should have because it integrates all aspects of a situation.  You will enjoy listening to one of the world’s best leadership experts tell her story.

LearnChair Radio host Bob Dragone interviews one of the top ten leadership thought leaders, Arthur Carmazzi.  Arthur explains how he got to this ranking by starting with his list of personal failures and how he learned from them.  Rather than perpetuate the behaviors he found in companies he worked for that led to failure, Arthur began to study them.  This became the basis for his leadership methodology he terms Directive Communication Psychology.  As he began to practice his methods, others soon caught on and now Arthur finds himself serving an international clientele from his base in Bali, Indonesia.  Arthur concentrates on cultures that perpetuate failure and how an individual can recognize these behaviors, change them and develop a personal leadership style.  The individual is in control of his or her environment, and with Arthur’s assistance one can learn to be a leader as circumstances demand.  Arthur also talks about his new book, Architects of Extraordinary Team Culture.  a fun and interactive exploration of his leadership methodology.  Rather than list characteristics of a good leader, Arthur emphasized the difference between competencies and skills and how an individual’s qualities can be developed to become a leader for any situation.  This is a lively and informative interview, from one of the top masters in the leadership field.
