A Frugal Athlete: Navigating The Start Up World with Lyle Adams
In this episode, we catch up with former professional soccer player Lyle Adams and talk about how he transitioned from soccer into the start up space. Lyle Adams gives us great lessons on the journey and how his frugal athlete mindset help catapult him to a different lane.  Frugal Athlete Quote "Invest in a Product or Invest in a Person" Lyle Adams Frugal Athlete Tips: Avoid distractions during 1:1s and team meetings. If you are distracted or on your laptop/cell, it appears that you are not interested in who is presenting and you don't value them. I took all my 1:1s out of the office to ensure that I was 100% focused on the individual.  Team Meetings: encourage everyone to share during team meetings to create a positive environment for feedback and inclusion Everyone perceives things differently: you might not favor anyone more than other person but if you move always ask to reschedule XX's 1:1 and never reschedule YY's 1:1, XX might perceive that you like YY more. Be careful of what you say or type. I stopped typing 'hey guys' in emails and used 'hey team' or 'hey folks'.  Always ask open-ended questions to encourage discussion. Can you explain this in more detail? Can you share your logic or why you believe this will be successful? Avoid "Yes" "No" questions.  Whenever possible play the role of devil's advocate; you want your team to be able to defend or justify their work. You might not agree with their plan but you have to let them try and fail as a teaching point.  It's okay to make mistakes. When you make a mistake, acknowledge this mistake and say it won't happen again. You are also a person and will make mistakes. Sadly, everyone makes a management mistake early in their careers.  Never become a blocker for someone. I traditionally responded to my team's emails and questions first then respond to everyone else (including my boss). If you cannot respond in a reasonable time frame, set a fair expectation with them.  Books Daring Greatly Radical Candor Good Boss Bad Boss Having Difficult Conversations The Daily Entrepreneur The Messy Middle Blitzscaling Shoe Dog Subscribe to newsletter   https://us14.list-manage.com/subscribe?u=95f4ae40cfac1c61a16e61a31&id=c81ea7f138 Use promo code PODCAST for all merch on  https://www.theloyalist.com/afrugalathlete
