If you’ve ever invited your kids to help you make pancakes, you know the process can be both messy and invigorating. How can leaders apply this metaphor in the workplace, to embrace the chaos of innovation in a way where everyone learns to collaborate more effectively, bring their unique ideas to the table, and fail forward? In my conversation with Ernest Comer III on his “Pancakes From Scratch” podcast, we discover why cooking with someone else is less about the food, and more about the experience... and how you can replicate that experience to build a stronger organizational culture.
In this interview, you’ll learn:
What my biggest challenge taught me about letting go
The connection between your ability to trust and the people you attract into your universe
The challenge - and beauty - of letting go
How entrepreneurs can manage the seasonality of business and revenue
The biggest challenge for solopreneurs trying to scale
How to strike the right balance between consistency and creativity
Why couples and teams keep having the same argument over and over - and how to finally resolve it
How culture amplifies community
“There is no one in your organization who is ‘just’ an employee or ‘just’ a boss; they are connected to so many other people in the community. And they take home that experience that you enable for them in the workplace, good or bad. So the work you put in, the investment you give to your culture, pays dividends throughout the larger community.”
