The Ripple Effect- The 100th Episode with Glenn Pasch

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

As I cross through the 100 episode barrier, I took time to reflect on what I have learned. And on of the biggest things that surprised me was the idea of the Ripple Effect.

When I started the podcast in 2020, I had a goal of 100 episodes but also to help others. Help new managers or even experienced leaders improve their skills. Too often no one is helping train leaders but expects them to figure it out on their own.

Many days, I was not sure if this was helping, but over the last few months, the ripples hit. People let me know conversations I had with certain guests helped them. My tips worked and folks who I have worked with many years ago reached out to say thanks. 

You never know how your actions, however small, will ripple out to help others.

I appreciate all of the support, all my great guests and now on to more conversations.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone and let you know that I do appreciate everything that you've done to support this podcast. If you're just finding this podcast now,...

...love it if you would subscribe wherever you listen to podcasts or watch the YouTube channel. That just you know, lets me know that people are listening and that it is having an impact, and that's what I wanted to share today. Usually I'm having conversations with individuals that I think bring great value to the audience, but today I wanted to take just a few minutes for myself to talk about something that I think all of us, especially those of us in leadership positions may not realize, and I was unsure if I was going to talk about this, but then, Lo and behold, I definitely believe the world shows you things when you need to. There was right on a post in one of my social media feeds the ripple effect, and that's what I was thinking about. We often get caught up looking at what I would...

...say is just the end result. Did we win, did we lose? We're working so hard in our businesses every day. Maybe we're taking a step back and we're working on the business, but often we don't realize the ripple effect that one our actions have on others and, more importantly, the good things that we're doing how that has an impact on others. When I first started the podcast a little over a year ago, my good friend Michael Sorillo, who was instrumental in helping me launch you, always kept saying don't look at the number of subscribers or stream teams that you have. Just put out...

...good content. It will find its landing spot. And, of course, over the time I called him up multiple times and he pulled me off the you know, off the ceiling, because I was worried. I wasn't seeing growth. I wasn't sure it was connecting. But what was interesting was not just the occasional comment on a video, but in in times where my team would say I listen to that, it felt like you were talking to me. It was helpful. Someone who I was at a gathering of friends who said, Oh, I didn't realize you had a podcast. I listened to it and wow, it's really good. I shared it out with people as well as now. I was recently at a a large conference and how many people said keep going, I love your love your content. Love these conversations,...

...especially because they're not the typical conversations or they're not just focused on the industry. In this case it was an automotive contrast conference. You know it's not just automotive or the same people, or even if you have those people, you're asking them different questions that we never would have asked them or we really liked hearing about it. So that ripple of effect goes out the tentacles of what you're doing, reaching out to individuals, having that impact. For a lot of times you just don't know how you've helped. I still to this day stay in touch with some people that I've known for twenty thirty years, worked at previous jobs with them and I'm always humbled by when I get, you know, just a little message or something on a post to say you know, I still use your training philosophy or I still remember when you...

...were a manager. You know, you always ask questions, you didn't tell people what to do. I didn't understand it, but now that I'm a leader and I'm in charge of things, I use that and it's really helpful. So I appreciate all you did. You helped me. I have a very dear friend. He always will remind me. He said, you know, way back when you talk to me, and Goshus has to be now twenty, going on twenty five, thirty years, he would say, you know, you you had me start a for K. I didn't understand it and he said you told me about saving some of my money. And he says I can't thank you enough because of the now, twenty five years later, the position I'm in financially. He says I'm not a millionaire by any stretch of the imagination, but I've saved money, my house is paid off, my I'm in a position where I don't stress and he said it was...

...all about a conversation I had with you over lunch one day and to me it wasn't. I look back, it wasn't me coaching him. I wasn't, you know, saying, Hey, come into my mastermind or let me help you do this, or I'm going to be your coach. You just asked for advice and in passing I said this. And so that's what I'm saying is a lot of times these conversations that you have with people or that help that you offer someone, you don't know the ripple effect of how what will happen. It can be intentional, meaning I'm going to go work for a charity or this is what I do to volunteer. You still won't know all of the impact that you have on others or that ripple effect. But the thing that I've learned from these one hundred episodes, because there's so many fascinating people out there who are willing to share advice strategies if you're willing to...

...ask them the question. I can't tell you. I'm working on it now, but how many books people have recommended or things that have motivated them that other people now are going hey, I read that book that your guest recommended and it was so helpful where there was a gentleman that helps with succession planning and someone in a conversation I mentioned that I interviewed someone. They said, Oh, where is that? I sent them the link to the PODCAST, sent them a link to their book, they reached out to the person and now that person is helping them through a challenging time. That's the tentacle that I never would have expected. That's the ripple effect that is so gratifying from doing this. I've been inspired. I hope that I'm getting better at this all the Times that I do this and I started this podcast with the with the goal of helping those who find themselves in charge of a project, a...

...team of business build skills to be better at it, because a lot of times we're thrown into these situations and no one's there to help us or we don't know who to ask for help or we're afraid to ask. So I hope in my own way, that this podcast has helped people build skills, challenges their thinking, maybe a few laughs, but I hope it's brought as much to you as it has to me. I love the fact that I get to interview folks and have the ability to talk to some people that maybe I never would have met. I know a lot of them. I would never have met, they wouldn't have crossed my paths if I didn't have a podcast. And so I challenge all of you, not necessarily to go create a podcast, but be open to conversations, seek out people, don't be afraid to ask a question of anyone, even if you think they're super successful and they'd never respond to me. You would be surprised how many people I...

...know who are extremely successful. They love to help, they love to be asked questions. That's why they're successful, because they lead with their hearts. So again, thank you so much. We're going to get back to conversations with other folks. I don't like to just take up a whole episode with me talking, but I did want to mark the one hundredth episode. That was a goal. I said, well, let me get to a hundred episodes and see how I feel, and I feel so energized, so inspired that I am so grateful. I just hope that I can just ask all of you one favor and that's please, if you find value, share it with somebody. Let's spread the message, let's introduce your friends, your networks to these phenomenal guests, and so again, I hope it brings you value. I thank you for your attention. It means the world to me. As I say at the end of every episode, you're in charge, but...

I hope I've been giving you, and my guests have been giving you, some tools to help you become more successful, both personally and professionally. Thank you again and I look forward to seeing you in the next episode.
