Unlabeled Leadership

045: Randy McNeely Helps Build Cultures

April 15, 2021

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I invite guests to share personal stories about small acts of leadership that help shape their lives.

In Episode 45, Randy McNeely uses storytelling to illustrate the power of words spoken in the right way and at the right time, to convey a guiding principle, and to advise us in how we act.

00:00 Prologue

These titles understate what Randy contributes to our society: Chief Kindness Officer, Licensed Culturewise Consultant, Speaker, Author, Podcast Host, Passionate Kindness Advocate, and Kindness Leadership Coach. What is closer to who Randy is can be found in a testimonial: “I have been drawn to Randy because of his kind spirit. He is always positive and shares kindness daily. I consider him a great friend and mentor.”

01:25 Part 1: When “Pretty Neat” Can Change Everything

Many of us are hard on ourselves. David enlightens us with a story how a peer said the right thing at the right time and in the right way to cause a “ripple through time for years.” His powerful story illustrates how one person can make a difference in someone’s life and in just seconds.

10:29 Part 2: Conversations that Leave You Uplifted

A dairy farmer shared a story with Randy that affected his outlook on life. Through storytelling, Randy conveys the principle, treat people like human beings, bring out the best in others.

18:47 Part 3: From Priorities to Action

Through two colleagues, Randy advises us with some quotations that can inspire us in how we act.
