Urgent – – read, listen, or do NOW! Can you relate? Kevin chats with Brandon Smith, author of the Hot Sauce Principle: How to Live and Lead in a World Where Everything Is Urgent All of the Time. Brandon compares urgency to hot sauce. A little bit gives you some flavor and enhances the meal. Too much and your mouth is on fire. Time is our most precious resource and because of things like technology or the markets, everything is urgent all the time. Brandon believes urgency can help us create focus and lead us to action. However, when it becomes too much, we are overwhelmed and not productive. He has also found that, just like hot sauce, different people, teams, and organizations need different amounts to feel the impact. To lead change, we need some urgency to disrupt positively.

In this episode, Brandon shares his thoughts on:

  1. Urgency in the pandemic.
  2. Leaders impact on urgency.
  3. The connection between trust and urgency.
