Journey Into Excellence (Episode 5)

Journey Into Excellence is a monthly radio podcast series with a panel of experts in leadership, management, sales, psychology, personal effectiveness, and life satisfaction. The focus of the series is an evidence-based exploration into how the optimal pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness requires both clear thinking and civility within our family, education, and leadership/management systems.

In our previous four episodes, we have focused on how logical fallacies are common barriers to clear-thinking and and how reducing them can lead to more civility (and excellence).  In this, our fifth episode, we begin a four part journey into differences between parenting, educating, and leading from an equality/civility approach versus control/abuse approach using the models known as the Civility Wheel and and the Abuse Wheel (and continuing to clarify the role of clear-thinking in promoting civility over abuse).  Throughout the show, our panelists will (as usual) provide listeners with specific methods of promoting happy and healthy families, satisfying and useful educational experiences, and profitable and helpful organizations in evidence-based ways.

Our regular panelists are:
