On episode 266 of the #AskGaryVee Show, Cy Wakeman, a thought leader dedicated to ditching the drama in work and in life, stops by and we discuss:
– The importance and true meaning of “ego”
– Avoiding getting political while directing a team in a politically-motivated enviroment
– Fixing the things that you can control as opposed to blaming the circumstances
#QOTD: Who would you be without your story?
20:28 – I currently work as an IT Director for a small municipality. As a result of being in that enviroment, a lot of the decisions regarding work flow and direction, from an executive level, are typically very small-town politically-motivated. What is the best way to avoid getting involved in the political aspect of things when you’re backed into a corner in that type of setting?
29:13 – I just launched a new consulting company for restaurants. How do you work in an environment where people often blame others or blame millennials instead of themselves? Do you think that the current structure for management/development doesn’t allow for problem-sloving or failure, which prevents people from figuring things out on their own?
