Flashback Friday: Your Title Doesn’t Make You a Leader

July 23, 2021

Have you ever worked for a horrible boss? If you are like most people, a couple of faces just popped into your mind.

We've all worked with horrible bosses who didn't use Intuitive Leadership, Neural Influence, or Mental Mastery... and it's HARD to be a leader without them, and painful for the people you work with if you don't.

I'm talking about #leadership in this #jammingwithjason episode. Technical skills and a fancy title, doesn't make you a good leader. In fact, you may be a horrible boss and not even realize it. 

What does it take to be a leader with executive presence who can navigate through the politics, the good times, and the challenging times? Listen in at: http://www.jasonmefford.com/jammingwithjason/ to find out.

Flashback Friday: Invest in Yourself or Nobody Else Will

Flashback Friday: Invest in Yourself or Nobody Else Will

July 16, 2021

As we move forward in our career it's easy to wake up one day and realize we haven't really invested in ourselves in years. I know, cause I've been there too. We get so busy dealing with the day-to-day stresses on our job, trying to balance life-work commitments that we don't take time to invest in ourselves. We become dependent on our employer to provide or pay for training, and when that doesn't happen we usually stop taking the time for personal development. After all, we have so much else on our plate, and we don't believe we "have" the time or money.

In this episode, I discuss two "gods" of the strings that we can learn a lot about how to become an expert in our craft. It takes, blood, sweat and tears ... of daily / weekly / monthly consistent dedication ... and a mindset to "make" the time or money investment in ourselves. Learn how these two individuals put in the time to become icons of their instruments.

If you want to be at the top of your game, you have to make time and invest in yourself. If you don't do it, nobody else will think it's important either. When we do invest, we may not become "gods," but the sky in definitely the limit on what we can accomplish.

A Facelift for Compliance with Tom Fox

A Facelift for Compliance with Tom Fox

July 13, 2021

In case you missed it, there has been a lot of change in how organizations are dealing with #compliance. Risk management concepts, use of data, using compliance to lead to greater business efficiency, third-party risk, just to name a few.

It's as if compliance has gotten a face lift recently and looks a whole lot more like a risk function adding value instead of just a cost of doing business.

I'm joined by Tom Fox to discuss some of the recent changes and how he has incorporated the "nuts and bolts" needed to operationalize compliance in your organization in his updated "The Compliance Handbook, 2nd Edition" where he shares practical tips like 31 days to a more effective compliance function.

As usual, we don't just jam about compliance and #risk, but also music and some career advice you won't want to miss.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and ESG with Julie Thompson

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and ESG with Julie Thompson

July 6, 2021

With business entering the digital world, we need to start looking into alternate populations to begin hiring from. Sure there are people of different skin colors or sexes, but what about individuals with physical disabilites or people from the autistic population.
Sometimes to tackle certain situations, a different point of view can be highly beneficial. 
Not only can business reach out and bring in employees from different walks of life, but companies can also look into how to treat their employees equitably. For some employees a flexible schedule would be helpful, or perhaps a cafeteria type benefits plan may work better for your employee base. 

Julie Thompson joins us today on the Jamming with Jason podcast to discuss positive ways that industry can change in many ways for the better!
