As managers of commercial groups in the areas of Life Sciences, Diagnostics, Genetics, and Oncology, you need your teams engaged more today than ever in the past. We are in a time of rising mental health and motivational challenges fueled by isolation, loneliness, and fear; but you can do great things to better encourage and engage your team so that they may rise above the challenges and reach higher performance success than before.
Today’s guest is Sam Parker. He is the author of books like 212 The Extra Degree, Lead Simply, Smile & Move, and Cross The Line. Sam’s messages are short and simple, yet the impact they have or can have on you and your team is HUGE! I was excited to talk to Sam to learn more about where his ideas come from and how he manages to put his simple but effective messages in his books. His responses will surprise you, make you laugh, and, more importantly, they will make you THINK.
Specifically, we cover:
1. How to really engage your team for success (10:43)
2. How to overcome pandemic frustrations and get excited (13:14)
3. How being a Post it Note will help everyone be better (16:00)
4. How Kind Communication is essential to growing success today (22:50)
5. How Choosing to Cross the Line will make good things happen (26:24)
6. How you can create resilience (29:16)
7. How you can Rise and Reach (36:00)
8. What Top Talent looks like for the future we are building (41:18)
Sam may shock many of you with this, but he has not found LinkedIn to be an effective marketing tool for his group… YET. This arises from his longstanding success with email listserv work. Still, he does admit things are changing and that he will have to adapt to the future – like all of us.
I most appreciated Sam’s honest and direct nature in answering my questions. He is very genuine, and I think that’s why his messages resonate with me and others as they do.
