Non-Working Genius
Despite its name, the Six Types of Working Genius model is extremely applicable outside of work, and even on vacation.  In this episode, Pat, Cody and Beau discuss how we can use the Working Genius to more effectively plan trips, book travel, and decide what to do on vacation.  
Six for Six
For any project, all 6 Types of Working Genius are necessary, so what does it look like when a team is underrepresented in a certain area?  This week, Pat, Cody and Tracy talk about each individual Genius, and where teams get stuck without them.  
Why we Devalue our Geniuses
For some reason, many of us tend to view other peoples' Working Geniuses as more important or more impressive than our own.  This week, the team talks about the unique merits of each Genius, and how much more appreciative we are of others when we realize the true value of our own strengths.  
Signs of Team Success
So the members of your team have taken the assessment... how do you then measure its impact?  This week, Pat, Cody and Tracy discuss what success looks like when using the Working Genius model.  
Person on the Street: Chris Stefanick
This week, the team sits down with a good friend who happens to be one of Pat's favorite 'creative dreamers'.  Tune in to hear how Chris' Wonder and Invention impact his role as a leader.  
Don't Should on Yourself
We all tell ourselves that we should be better at certain aspects of our work or in certain areas of our life.  However, if we aren't naturally inclined to enjoy and thrive within those areas, to 'should' on ourselves is a recipe for unnecessary guilt and shame.  
Elevator Pitch
The Six Types of Working Genius is a strikingly simple model, yet there is an almost overwhelming amount of depth in its application.  So where's the hook?  This week, the team describes what we believe to be the most effective 'elevator pitch' for the Working Genius assessment.  
ALL the Pairings... Finally
Buckle up!  This week, the Working Genius team reveals all of the pairings in our longest episode yet.  
Working Genius and Parenting
We use the Working Genius model as a guide for how we show up to work.  This week, Pat, Cody and Beau discuss how you can apply it to your job as a parent.  
Make Your Conversations More Productive
In previous episodes, we've talked about the altitude of each Genius, the 3 stages of work, regulating your Genius, and the Genius of meetings.  What do you get when you roll all of these concepts together?  A new Working Genius framework that applies to any conversation at work.  
The Cure for Team Toxicity
Perhaps the most immediate benefit of the Working Genius model is how it allows us to overcome the fundamental attribution error.  This week, Pat, Cody and Tracy discuss how we can replace judgement and toxicity on our teams with understanding and grace.  
Pairings Part 2
This week, the Working Genius team covers two more pairings with help from Beau and Julie.  Tune in as we discuss IG and DT.
