Jeff Miller, The Influence Ecology Podcast, Transactional Competence, Transactionalism

Naively Righteous with Jeff Miller

As we teach it, the study of transactional behavior allows each of us to understand both the value and cost of our role in any transaction. For example, rigorous standards are valuable when confronting our limited resources–and at the same time–destructive when gregarious or imaginative moods are required. Too often, we get stuck when we assume our assets or contributions are always a good thing. We are often surprised when they backfire. In 2016, Jeff Miller's standards had him so imprisoned that the toll to his health finally stopped him in his tracks. Although the money was good, throughout most…

Scaling Up! with John James & Lauren Cato Robertson

In 2012, John James and Lauren Cato Robertson started studying with Influence Ecology to develop their massage therapy business and now co-own the Academy where Lauren first trained. Their journey underscores many of the lessons that come with first expanding, then scaling their business. As John James says: It's been pure joy and frequent discomfort. In this interview, you'll hear a very transparent view of what it's like to start and grow a successful and expanding business. We first interviewed the business partners in May of 2017, where they spoke about the early days of working together and going from…

Built for Speed with Alex Bould

Alex Bould works with large tech corporations to shorten their time to market. Working in the San Francisco Bay area, he leads enterprise-scale Agile transformations to help solve billion-dollar problems. In this interview, he talks about what differentiates market leaders from market followers - and how this is changing. For the longest time, the pursuit of efficiency and productivity has dominated the landscape - higher efficiency and productivity leads to lower costs and lower risks for greater scale. As the marginal return for increased productivity diminishes - the landscape is now shifting - it's shifting to one where the companies…

R.E.S.P.E.C.T. with Dawn Spiller, Jenn Oliver, Carolyn Saint, Ellen Beverly, and Olga Kipnis at the University of Virginia

At the University of Virginia, I interviewed a group of women about the impact of our programs. I spoke with Ellen Beverly, Dawn Spiller, Olga Kipnis, Carolyn Saint, and Jenn Oliver about how the framework of Transactional Competence™ has helped them in their roles within the university. What might, you wonder, is the most surprising outcome? An environment of respect for different roles and personalities. While they each experienced more effectiveness and influence, the ability to understand Personality and Transactional Behavior™ has produced a culture of respect both for the simple day-to-day transactions and for the larger transactions that support…

How Resilient Are You? with Kim Corbett

Why do some quit while others bounce back? Chances are you've heard tales of Thomas Edison overcoming failure. Edison (1847-1931) most famously invented the long-lasting, practical electric light bulb and is credited with developing devices for electrical power generation, mass communication, sound recording, and motion pictures. As a master of trial and error, these innovations have had a widespread impact on the modern industrialized world. When asked about the many thousands of failures he had when trying to create the light bulb he famously said, "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." Success is not…

When Being Likable Isn’t Enough with Janet Asher Vreeland

We all assume we can play to our strong suits - but what about when these don't work? How do I influence or gain compliance when being likable is my primary tool - and it sometimes backfires? As we teach it, all personalities experience themselves as both an asset AND a liability depending on the state of the transaction. For example, if we're brainstorming new possibilities, it doesn't work for skeptics to chime in with critical standards. However, skepticism is required if we're making assessments about the value and relevance of something. In today's' interview, our guest, Janet Vreeland, found…

Decisions Based in Evidence with Neil Calvert

Twin Studies have been used for decades to settle the age-old Nature vs. Nurture debate about human behavior: are we hardwired to act according to our biological blueprint, or does our environment influence our behavior or gene expression? Twin Study research has helped find answers to questions on space travel, obesity, IQ, and much more. Empirical evidence has settled the debate for good. The answer? We are both Nature AND Nurture. But what about a Digital Twin...and what can it teach us? A digital twin is a real-time digital replica of a living or non-living physical entity. This replication is…

Ambition Is Not a Dirty Word with Darryl Anderle

In a 2015 speech, American actress, producer, and entrepreneur Reese Witherspoon launched a campaign to support women and their aspirations with the battle-cry, "Ambition is not a dirty word." In 2018, Oprah Winfrey interviewed Reese Witherspoon and American actress, comedian, writer, producer, and director Mindy Kaling to talk about that moment. Growing up in lower-middle-class Texas, Influence Ecology CFO Darryl Anderle was raised to think of ambition as a negative word—it had selfish connotations. It seemed as if the standard for success was to get noticed for being independent, self-reliant, and hard-working; waiting for someone to consider him for advancement…
