In this podcast, he shares proven strategies and tactics so you, too, can achieve massive results in your business, relationships, health and finances.

Have you ever wondered how the most successful companies make their hires? Or what makes for a winning team? Have you ever wanted to know just what characteristics distinguish the most innovative entrepreneurs? Or what makes someone truly original?

In this episode of the Tony Robbins Podcast, we sit down with renowned organizational psychologist, Adam Grant to discuss personality dynamics, motivation and meaning, and what that all means for you and your business.

Adam has been Wharton’s top-rated professor for five straight years. He has been recognized as one of the world’s 25 most influential management thinkers and Fortune’s 40 under 40.

He is the author of two New York Times bestselling books translated into 35 languages, and has recently co-authored a new book with Sheryl Sandberg called Option B - about facing adversity, building resilience and finding joy. And he writes on work and psychology for the New York Times.

Adam’s TED talks on original thinkers and givers and takers have been viewed more than 8 million times. And his speaking and consulting clients include Facebook, Google, the NBA, Merck, Goldman Sachs, Pixar, the U.S. Army and Navy, and the World Economic Forum, where he has been honored as a Young Global Leader.

In this episode, host Ana Yoerg talks with Adam about just how businesses can get the most out of their employees, and how employees can get the most out of their jobs. They dig into the personality dynamics of givers and takers, innovators and original thinkers. And they discuss why it’s so important to not just meet customer expectations, but to always exceed them.

In this episode of the Tony Robbins Podcast, we are bringing back to Business Mastery one more time, where Tony recently led a panel discussion with the business leaders behind some of today’s fastest growing companies. And for this episode, you’re going to hear from one of the founders of a company that change the travel industry forever.

When is the last time you booked a trip somewhere? Where did you stay? Was it a hotel? Or did you opt for the alternative and rent a room, or maybe an entire house, from a local?

The idea of staying in a stranger’s home may have blown your mind a few years ago, but today it’s not just a standard practice, it’s actually the preferred accommodation for tens of millions of travelers across the world. And there’s one company to thank for that – Airbnb.

Airbnb started as a simple solution to a pressing problem; co-founders Joe Gebbia and Brian Chesky couldn’t afford rent, so they opened up their San Francisco apartment for guests to stay in. They soon realized they may be onto something bigger than just a way to avoid being evicted. So, along with their old roommate, Nathan Blecharczyk, they started to build it into a business. But that was nearly 10 years ago.

Airbnb has evolved substantially since then, though it was by no means a straight path to success. In fact, they launched and relaunched a number of times. They found themselves up to their ears in debt, rejected by investors over and over and were very close to flatlining on more than one occasion.

You will hear their story of perseverance, and how they were able to find opportunities for massive growth where there were seemingly none. You will also hear about the importance their design background played in creating trust amidst strangers and giving customers the experience they wanted. And you will hear how they transcended cultural boundaries and were ultimately able to turn a floundering idea into a global business that operates in more than 34,000 cities in 91 countries, and is now estimated to be worth $30 billion.

In this episode of the Tony Robbins Podcast, we are bringing you back to Business Mastery, where Tony recently led a panel discussion with the business leaders behind some of today’s fastest growing companies. And this time, you’re going to hear from one of the founders of a company that changed the eyewear business forever.

If you have ever worn eyeglasses, then you know that the traditional process is expensive and inconvenient. On average, a pair of glasses costs nearly $300. And the trips you have to make to the retailer to sift through the pairs, try them on, and order your final choice can really stack up. It’s a real pain point for a lot of people. But that is exactly why four friends at Wharton Business School decided to start a business that did something about it.

Neil Blumenthal, Dave Gilboa, Andy Hunt and Jeff Raider launched Warby Parker in 2010. The premise was simple - offer customers high-quality eyewear at affordable prices, and establish a convenient, direct-to-consumer model so that customers could get eyeglasses anytime and anywhere. But what made this company so special was how focused they were on perfecting the customer experience and the massive amounts of research and experimentation they did to find that sweet spot. 

In this episode, you are going to hear from Neil Blumenthal on the vision behind Warby Parker, why it was so critical for them to optimize every single dollar they put into the company and the tools and strategies that helped them build Warby Parker into a billion dollar business.

There are critical moments in all of our lives that could potentially be great opportunities for growth and expansion -- any high stakes situation such as an interview, a pitch, an important meeting. However, so many of us aren’t prepared to take advantage of those opportunities because we lack the tools and skills necessary to execute when we need it most. And ultimately, we miss out on what could be life-changing moments, and we end up not living up to our potential.

In this episode of the Tony Robbins Podcast, we sit down with performance coach and advisor, Todd Herman. Todd is the Founder of The Peak Athlete, a mental toughness training & sports science research company, advising Pro & Olympic athletes for over 18 years. He’s also creator of 'The 90 Day Year' Program, a goal achievement system used by athletes, entrepreneurs and companies like, Shell, Goldman Sachs, Cisco Systems and Government agencies around the world. The Boston Herald has called him "A Sports Training Superstar" and he’s also the author of the forthcoming book - The Alter Ego Effect: How The World’s Top Performers Use Secret Identities To Win In Sport, Business & Life.

Todd discusses just why we have a hard time adapting to high-pressure situations, and delves into the power of alter egos - or what he refers to as “secret identities” - and how they allow us to magnify certain parts of our personality when we need it most. Because we have the capacity to create who we want to be, in any situation, and we have the potential to reach any of our goals - as long as we learn how to get out of our own way.

Abraham Lincoln, Nelson Mandela, Steve Jobs, Oprah Winfrey – some of the greatest leaders of all time. But what makes each of these individuals such a remarkable leader? And how do we define great leadership?

We may be apt to hold on to the traditional notion that leadership is defined by rank and order. But your position or title alone does not qualify you as a veritable leader. Think about it, how many CEOs are there in the world that hold a position of great power, but have a nominal impact on their employees? How many managers aren’t even respected by those that they manage? Even brilliant and innovative individuals can stumble when it comes to finding their voice. Because leadership is not defined by a position, nor it is even defined by intellectual prowess or natural talent – leadership is the skill of influence, something that you can use to impact the thoughts, feelings, emotions and actions of others. And it is the most important skill that anyone of us can master.

Yet as important as leadership is, in today’s world, it’s a rarity. And that’s not because there is a scarcity of natural born leaders. In fact, leadership can be cultivated. Many of us suppose it’s an innate talent, but anyone can become a leader in something that they decide to become masterful in. You could be the leader in your business, the leader in your class, the leader in your own family. You could even decide to become the leader of your own life. There are different types and different styles of leadership. But real leadership starts with the capacity to discipline your disappointment. Because along any journey worth taking, you are going to encounter obstacles, and odds are, you are going to fail. But if you can find a way to connect to yourself, and connect to others, and if you can find a way to break through those challenges, you can become a true leader. And when you strive to serve the greater good – something greater than yourself – that’s when you can become a truly great leader.

Tony and Mary Buckheit recently sat down with General Stanley McChrystal and Chris Fussell to discuss what great leadership looks like today and how to cultivate an infrastructure for success in any organization.

General Stanley A. McChrystal has been called “one of America’s greatest warriors” by Secretary of Defense Robert Gates.  A retired four-star general, he is the former commander of U.S. and International Security Assistance Forces (ISAF) Afghanistan and the former commander of the premier military counter-terrorism force, Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC). He is best known for developing and implementing the current counter-insurgency strategy in Afghanistan, and for creating a comprehensive counter-terrorism organization that revolutionized the interagency operating culture.

General McChrystal now serves as a senior fellow at Yale University’s Jackson Institute for Global Affairs where he teaches a course on Leadership in Operation.  And he co-founded the McChrystal Group in January of 2011 where he is currently a partner.  McChrystal Group’s mission is to deliver innovative leadership solutions to American businesses to help them transform and succeed in challenging and dynamic environments.

Chris Fussell is a former Navy SEAL Officer, where he spent 15 years leading SEAL elements in combat zones around the globe. He served as Aide-de-Camp to Lieutenant General McChrystal during McChrystal’s final year commanding JSOC, becoming an integral part of the team that made the Special Operation’s transformation into a successful, agile network possible. Fussell is also a partner at the McChrystal Group, where he leads the McChrystal Group Leadership Institute, where he brings his Special Operations experience and his expertise in leadership development to organizations of all sizes. In addition to being a New York Times bestselling author, he regularly does media interviews, gives keynotes speeches, and speaks to business leaders at roundtables and panels.

In this episode of the podcast, you will hear Tony, General McChrystal and Chris delve into the reasons that leadership no longer comes from a command and control model, but from creating relationship-based change throughout the entire organization and by empowering every single person that is part of your business. And they examine the importance of building trust, remaining flexible, practicing empathy, and creating a culture of shared consciousness. By breaking out of the traditional sense of leadership, business owners can create a more cohesive and more powerful team that is not only more unified, but more efficient, and ultimately, more effective.

Building a better business starts with building better relationships. The relationships you have with your employees, with your customers, with your vendors, colleagues, contacts and investors – these can all help you build social capital. And social capital can become one of the most powerful tools in your arsenal, as it creates a level of trust, understanding and even loyalty that will allow your business to thrive, even in uncertain times. In short, social capital is power.

In this episode of the Tony Robbins, we speak with Jordan Harbinger. A Wall Street lawyer turned talk show host, Jordan is widely regarded as an expert in social influence, interpersonal dynamics and social engineering.

He’s the owner and co-founder of The Art of Charm, a consulting and coaching company, as well as a top 50 podcast on iTunes – which he’s been hosting for over a decade.

Jordan’s company, The Art of Charm, holds boot camps and training sessions for companies and individuals that want to learn the elements of emotional intelligence to become more persuasive, confident and charismatic.

Jordan delves into the role that communication plays when it comes to building social relationships, and the importance of understanding nonverbal cues and gestures. From your facial expressions to the way you carry yourself, every single non-verbal notion has the potential to communicate specific attributes about who you are as a person – whether you are insecure or confident, approachable or aloof, curious or disinterested. Because human beings are wired to subconsciously interpret these signals. And we are innately inclined to make sweeping judgments and inferences from body language. These judgments can ultimately influence meaningful life decisions; like who we choose to employ or engage with. And Jordan helps us understand how these nonverbal signals influence our relationships, our interactions, and our abilities to get what we want in life.
