jon-gordonIn this latest installment of the Blanchard LeaderChat Podcast Chad Gordon interviews Jon Gordon, author of The Wall Street Journal bestseller The Energy Bus.  Jon’s other books include Soup, The No Complaining Rule, Training Camp, and The Carpenter.

Jon discusses how leaders can combat negativity at work through vision, purpose, and optimism. He explains how positive organizations outperform negative ones—and he shares intentional practices for increasing the levels of communication and connection on teams. You’ll learn how a combination of vulnerability, informal relationships, and connecting creates the glue that holds a high performing team together.

Jon describes how an attitude of positivity helps leaders define moments of heroism, hardship, and highlights to “get people on the bus” and heading in the same direction.  He shares a strategy—Love-Serve-Care—that converts talent to greatness and creates inspiring leaders.

Relationships are foundational. Jon talks about how anyone can become a “come with me” leader by investing in others and helping them grow.  He also describes how we can all find time to build relationships in our busy and stressful lives.
