If you’ve ever noticed how a single person in a bad mood can negatively impact a room full of people, then you understand the importance of presence. In this episode of Ponderings from the Perch, Priscilla McKinney talks with her friend Anese Cavanaugh, author of “Contagious Culture” and new book “Contagious You.” Anese and Priscilla discuss the books as well as Anese’s IEP Method (Intentional Energetic Presence) that can be used to make intentional personal decisions that can have a wide-reaching impact - for which there is a free downloadable presence guide and IEP sheet. In addition to her books, Anese also wrote “The Leader You Will Be,” an illustrated inspirational journey of leadership that began its life as a 1,000 word poem. Priscilla discusses writing, authenticity, and collective culture in this uplifting podcast.

In addition to speaking about experience strategy’s impact on all levels of a business, Tricia also discusses how MMR Live has evolved since being founded in 2017.

“It’s never been easier to get started. There’s never been a time in all of business where there’s more things at your fingertips to help you be successful. But on the flip side, it’s also never been harder to scale, because competition is so fierce.”

So, you think you’re pretty tough, do you? Well lemme introduce you to a couple toughies who eat fear for breakfast. Their names: Priscilla McKinney and Andy Crestodina. I heard they’re so accustomed to living on the edge that they don’t even flinch at…using Wordpress for a web host. Pretty hardcore, yeah?
In addition to rebuffing the content of the specific blog itself, the conversation also touches on a type of blog-writing that Priscilla and Andy feel is less than helpful.
Priscilla says, “I feel very committed to the integrity of our industry, and when I see something like this that’s just written out there that really in the end looks like clickbait to me, it’s a little upsetting. So I feel like it’s our duty to come back and say, ‘No, this is not not quite right.’ Just because it got published, does not mean that it’s true.”
Andy agrees about this concern, because it reiterates biases: “We all have built-in to our brains the confirmation bias - when you come across an article that supports something you already believe, you tend to place more weight on it.”
