The Great Work MBA is coming up in November, and I’m taking a look at a few of the Great Work Interviews (GWI) with some of our 25 amazing speakers. On Day 2, you’ll hear from my friend Les McKeown on How to Know Your Role.
Les McKeown, Author of The Synergist
In this interview with Les McKeown, I speak with him about his book, The Synergist: How to Lead Your Team to Predictable Success. In the book, Les shares a behavioral model to understand the three main roles people play in teams (and their personal lives) and how you can create stability and success by understanding those patterns.
We chat about:
- How Les’ book and workshop have saved my marriage to my wife/business partner
- The three roles in business — the visionary, the operator, and the processor – and the frustrations they encounter working together
- Why certain teams will encounter gridlock and the “secret sauce” to move beyond it
Listen to my interview with Les McKeown
Les & I Reverse Roles
I do love doing the Great Work Interviews, not least because I get to pepper interesting people with nosey questions. But occasionally the roles are reversed and it’s me who gets a good grilling. It happened just the other day with my friend Les McKeown, leader of Predictable Success and contributor to the Great Work philanthropic project End Malaria.
This is a great conversation with Les, and for those who are curious to hear what the VP of Everything Else sounds like, she shows up in the middle to share her point of view on life, Box of Crayons and the importance of champagne.
