Speaking Up and Silence in Clubhouse
Written by Ryan Warren Instagram @ryanwarren
When do we speak up? When do we remain quiet?
The Clubhouse related questions I get are usually along with these questions: "When do I unmute and speak up, and when do I stay muted and someone else does the talking?"
It’s a good question. It’s an honest question. And, it’s one I’m willing to answer in an effort to provide some clarity and possibility when you are asking the same questions.
Here it goes, and before I begin, some ground rules are in order.
1. This is not meant to be exhaustive or complete in terms of speaking and choosing not to. There’s no way that I can cover all of the ins and outs of speak/silence dynamics within one blog. You are welcome to reach out if you have a specific idea or scenario.
2. This is a comprehensive and Clubhouse related field. I...
Improve Your Clubhouse Experience with this One Brave Action
Written by Ryan Warren | Instagram: @ryanwarren
I did some research over the past week. Nothing too elaborate. Effective? Very much so. I asked nearly 50 people I’ve met on Clubhouse one very simple and direct question.
“Has anyone in your life that you know outside of Clubhouse read your bio on your Clubhouse profile?”
All but 2 of them said no - no one in their life outside of Clubhouse knew the information or bio they were sharing. And, when some of them (the brave ones) went and shared their bios with family and close friends, what they discovered was that they were sharing things on their bios that people in their life away from Clubhouse were surprised to read.
Before I get into the goal and plan of the process, here are a few results over the past 2 weeks people I asked have chosen to make:
> They have made changes in their bios to...

Imagine talking with someone face to face. They are mid-sentence sharing something important and meaningful to them, and you get up and walk out not saying anything.
You left the room quietly.
This is one of a number of Clubhouse appropriate actions that would be undeniably impactful in an in-person exchange.
So what do we do? What do we do when someone is mid-topic and we need to jet? Clubhouse has an answer for us, surely, and boy oh boy do they.
That button is available for you to click with a touch of the finger and “Voila!” you’re gone.
But what if you’re wanting to leave a conversation with a little more intention, thankfulness, gratitude, and extend to them a deeper sense of who you are? What are the options?
I ask because the idea of walking out of a room without saying anything in real life gives me a feeling that only a double scoop of ice cream in a waffle...

When I’m talking with a leader, one thing that is always communicated be that directly or indirectly, is the rules they adhere to. We all have them. One of my mentors even took it so far as to write a book titled The Three Rules by Michael Raynor. Worth mentioning that for him, the third rule is that “there are not other rules.”
I’d like to propose that the “rules” we each adhere to as leaders communicate our value for personal responsibility.
Responsibility Rule: 95% = 0%
Ever heard of the 95%=0% Rule when it comes to accountability and responsibility? It’s simple and quite powerful.
If a leader only accepts 95% responsibility in a situation under their area of influence, they really are accepting 0% of it. There are not partial claims, no halfway ownership when it comes to healthy leadership.
Leaders who have an ownership mentality show up and do so with the...
Over 50? Why Clubhouse Needs The Generation of Experience Active and Talking!
Prepared by Ryan Warren, CRO of The Winning Network @ryanwarren
In the Clubhouse Hall of Fame of Great Moments, there is one game-changing networking athlete that stands up and stands out. That athlete's name? The Story. Sharing a great story - great meaning one that’s truly telling us about YOU and your experience, can open up the avenues of exploring new relationships like nothing else can. Who has great stories? Our over 50 years of age friends. We need these people talking. Why? Because inside their experiences are a wealth of wisdom, understanding, successes, failures, and a memorable (mostly appropriate) joke or two.
The many years of experience at one job, all the time you spent in boardrooms, PTA meetings, the conversations at your local...
