Rusty Komori was the varsity boys’ tennis coach at the Punahou School in Honolulu from 1994 until 2015. During his tenure, the school won the state championship each and every year. That’s a record unmatched by any other coach in any other sport.

But Rusty is not just excellent at taking a diverse group of teenagers and turning them into champions — he masterfully coaches employers on how to adapt his methods for the workplace, transforming typical office environments into ones that enjoy a culture of consistent success. 

Rusty is the author of the recently published book Superior: Creating A Superior Culture Of Excellence.

As he details in this week’s episode, the core of success — in sports or business — starts at the top. If a dictatorial boss heads an organization, it won’t achieve the same success as if a leader guides it. 

“Love” may be the lowest score in tennis, but it’s absolutely what you need to convey to be at the top of your game in business.

Monday Morning Radio is hosted by the father-son duo of Dean and Maxwell Rotbart.

Business and brand websites have existed for almost three decades. Yet most companies still don’t know how to design them so that their messaging aligns with and supports their advertising, social media, and point-of-sale communication. 

Moreover, most present-day websites fail to incorporate language that appeals to each of the four major personality types, relying on so-called persuasion architecture.

Vi Wickam, an exceptional digital and ad strategist, optimizes websites to deliver more leads, sales, and happier customers.

A veteran Wizard of Ads partner, Vi not only helps his own clients but also teams with expert marketers worldwide to ensure their clients' websites perform like virtuoso violinists, delivering exceptional and harmonious results.

Even then, Vi notes, there is no resting on your laurels: No website is ever complete.

In his award-winning 2021 book about the aftermath of the terror attacks on the World Trade Center, September Twelfth, Monday Morning Radio co-host Dean Rotbart described Gwendolyn “Wendy” Bounds, an eyewitness and award-winning journalist.

She was, he wrote, telegenically attractive, with big chocolate-brown eyes, a sparkly broad smile, and shoulder-length buttery blond hair blended with honey highlights.

That was then. Today, as evidenced by the cover photo on her new book — Not Too Late: The Power of Pushing Limits at Any Age — Wendy is often covered in mud and sweat, ripped, displaying muscular arms, strong and toned legs, and broad and well-developed shoulders.

Wendy spent nearly 20 years with The Wall Street Journal, including anchoring the daily, live 25-minute noon news/lifestyle show Lunch Break. Subsequently she became vice president and chief content officer at Consumer Reports and currently heads U.S. media partnerships and business development at SmartNews

Wendy has transformed herself from a desk jockey into a competitive Spartan racer, running through mud pits, crawling under barbed wire, swinging across monkey bars, and hoisting sandbags as she navigates obstacle courses.

Age, she assures Dean and his co-host, Maxwell Rotbart, “can be a secret weapon.”

[Not Too Late: The Power of Pushing Limits at Any Age will officially be published on June 18, 2024. It is available for pre-order here.]

Pop quiz, hotshot.

Hackers have frozen you out of your own databases. They tell you that if you want back in, you have to pay them a ransom in the next 24 hours. Oh, and if you don’t want them to sell your clients’ data on the black market, that’s another hefty fee, too.

What do you do? WHAT DO YOU DO?

That’s the question that keeps Terry Ziemniak, TechCXO’s fractional chief information security offer, working around the clock, advising businesses on how to build systems and protocols to protect their data, and to prepare a plan in case the barbarians breach the castle gates. 

What steps can you take to begin building a moat around your databases? 

Terry has more than 25 years of experience in the information security field. This week he reveals the deeply guarded secrets to effective cybersecurity.

When business owners and entrepreneurs struggle to resolve an intractable problem, they often blame everyone and everything but the true culprit. Themselves.

Often, what they should be thinking, says Steve McCready — who spent more than 15 years as a psychotherapist before becoming a business coach — is, “It’s not you, it’s me.”

Steve is a “magic eraser” for the root causes of many business problems, including owner self-doubt, lack of focus, and feeling overwhelmed.

You don’t have to lie on the couch while listening to this week’s podcast, Steve assures listeners, but you will want to be comfortable and create a psychologically safe space.
