7:57 am
first alert traffic brought charlotte. right now a live look at i-77 northbound, that is at the john belk freeway exit there, wilkinson boulevard and you can see traffic is very slow, we had a situation there that was blocking the ramp a little earlier, but looks like they cleared the situation and traffic is moving in all though it is very slow right now. as it typically is this time of day. here is a live look at current conditions map, a little red out there, traffic issues, be aware of that, now checking in with meteorologist al conklin. >> al: we have sunshine and plenty of it clear skies, camera at university city area, nothing but blue sky and sunshine. sun getting higher in the sky, start to shake off some of the chill but cold, right now at morning low, 36 charlotte, 36 in lancaster and rock hill, 38 shelby, gastonia, 36 in hickory and 34 right now in statesville. a chilly start to the day, wind

weather, 67 come with me now good morning. it is monday, march 21st, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there is more real news ahead, including the obama's in havana. the president's historic visit
8:00 am
opening cuba to america businesses. first, here's a look at today's "eye opener" at 8:00. this is a direct appeal to end a half century of tension. he will press raul castro to make reform. donald trump brings his campaign to washington, d.c. in addition to tonight's speech he'll give a tour of this future hotel. >> this is something of an election year tradition for political candidates to speak to this influential pro-israel group. >> the pictures are absolutely beautiful but not what you want to see at the beginning of end but you have to take what mother nature gives you. he may be here for a while. his. >> laura: said they are doing everything they can to fight his extradition to france. >> i don't think he or anyone else was prepared for such a decisive verdict. >> part of what is driving the shift to electronic transmissions is they take up less space. have you a shifter that feels like a boat throttle and you have to make sure you put the vehicle into park. "snl" is writing a skit
8:01 am
donald trump and ben carson barely break out the moves to "stand by me ." where is the beat, everybody, where is the beat? clap. clap! where is the beat? i'm norah o'donnell with gayle king and anthony maven.son. charlie is off. president obama makes history when he meets with raul castro in havana in a few hours. latin america is saying it's the start of a new era. is the first american president on sunday to set foot on the island in 88 years. >> young american children and young cuban children, by the time they are adults, our hope is they think it's natural that a u.s. president should be visiting cuba. they think it's natural that the two peoples are working
8:02 am
their future is what we work for. >> rainy weather did not stop the first family from taking a walking tour of old havana. hundreds of cubans came out to catch a glimpse and show their support. hours before the president's arrival, cuba's government arrested protesters whose family members had been jailed by the castro regime and proving that human rights on the agenda today. thousands of people are opening their homes to guests. we will talk to the ceo of airbnb about the opportunities and challenges of doing business on the communist island ahead. trump said raul castro insulted the president by not greeting him at the airport. violence marred another trump rally this weekend. police in tucson threw out a group of demonstrators, including a won wearing kkk head gear. after trump denounced her a spectator, suddenly punched and kicked another man in the group.
8:03 am
trump said last night he does not condone violence but accused the media of not showing why the man started punching. >> they are walking these two people out. the klan outfit is still on the one person and man became incensed that someone wear a ku klux klan outfit and did some swinging. all it showed was this wonderful -- i hear he is a very, very fine guy. this wonderful african-american man swinging, swinging and nobody knows why he did it. and i think it's very, very unfair. >> another video shows someone grabbing a protester's collar. a trump spokesman denies reports that campaign manager corey lewandowski did the grabbing. the controversy surrounding donald trump's campaign extends beyond the violence at his rallies. the inability of the party to embrace a front-runner is make
8:04 am
likely. republic national convention reince priebus is with us. >> thank you. >> reporter: i want to start with the violence. >> sure. >> why do you think the violence is happening and who do you think is responsible and what do you think needs to be done to stop it? >> well, i mean, i think plenty of blame to go around. i think party leaders on both sides need to denounce violence. i certainly have. i don't think violence is the answer. i think violence gets violence. so, you know, i think it always takes two to tango but, obviously, it needs to be denounced from all sides. and so -- but i also think the media is obsessed with it. i'm not necessarily you all at cbs, but other shows have this stuff on a constant loop. i mean, they find an altercation and they play it and it's 24/7 and they preempt everyone else and everyone is kicked off the air hours and hours so we can keep talking about a couple of
8:05 am
>> mr. trump has warned about riots if he is denied the nomination at the convention in july in cleveland. i mean, what do you think of a warning like that coming from a front-runner and are you doing anything to prepare for that possibility? >> well, i guess i don't put it at the level of a warning to us. but, you know, he, obviously, said yesterday he doesn't believe that. but nevertheless, the point is still a good question. we prepare for all contingencies and have over 50 million dollars of security at the convention. it sounds like a lot, but 24, 2,500 getings is notdelegates are not that many people. most state charnsirmans have conventions larger that. we will have a fun contention and have a good time in cleveland. >> we are talking about the tone and tenor of this campaign. i want to ask you about some of
8:06 am
front-runner donald trump has made, specifically about megyn kelly who is a anchor on the fox news channel. nine times the past six days he has tweeted specifically about megyn kelly and seven times calling her crazy. fox news has put out a statement saying, quote, trump's extreme sick obsession with her is beneath the dignity of a presidential candidate who wants to occupy the highest office in the land. would you agree that such personal attacks are deplorable? >> well, i would agree that, you know, people running for office ought to focus in on the positive, the message of the future, bringing all americans together and uniting all of us. i think sometimes the daily grind of campaigns can get the best of everybody. but i also think that, you know, we all need to rise above these so, look. i think this is about fixing this country and getting people
8:07 am
a debt bomb in this country that is going to destroy us. >> mr. chairman! we pressed democrats -- >> the 11th commandment -- >> mr. president, we press democrats and republicans to answer the same way on this show. let me ask you seriously because i think this is serious. calling another female journalist crazy and sick and overrated, is that presidential and is that what the republican party stands for? >> it's not a matter of whether it's presidential or not because it's a word that we can all choose to define for ourselves. but it's not something i would do. and it's not something that i think we aspire to get engaged with. i think we need to keep things at top level, keep things positive. talk about bringing america together and unifying this country. >> is your job harder for you these days when you talk about unifying the country? lindsey graham said on "face the nation" yesterday he would rather lose without donald trump than win with him. how do you get unity in the republican party? do you find your job harder for
8:08 am
>> don't confuse the unity with unanimity, you know? you're never going to get unanimity and you're never getting 100% of everyone on bovered board. clearly, this has been a contentious drama-filled. i'm not saying it's not. we have to put it in perspective. democrats having a rough primary and ours are a little more drama-filled but the point is we will come together because we will have a convention and unify and that is where my job does get tougher because i need to get everyone back in the room and coming in the same direction following the convention. and so that is what we are working hard on every day and we could have a nominee before cleveland. we could have an open convention at cleveland. so, look. we are in historic times and i recognize that. but, at the same time, when you take all of our candidates and put them head-to-head against hillary clinton and no cases we are beating her, if not slightly behind. so, look.
8:09 am
don't think anyone can deny that. >> you say you're joining the challenge of the job? you still got your hair so that is good. you're not pulling it out. all right. >> you know, i appreciate it. no, i am actually enjoying it. it's a great opportunity. i have a front seat to history. >> yes. >> and i'm hoping, you know, every day to do my best and be open-minded and be patient. >> thank you, mr. priebus for joining us morning. you might staring at your to do list to start the week. pulitzer prize winner is here.

8:18 am
>> we didn't know ourselves how we do business but with little internet there are a few people on the island that have internet access. the way it works we have 4,000 homes and there are people that are co-hosts with our hosts. they are intermediaryiesintermediaries. they accept payments and do the messages online and they work with the people's homes. >> reporter: cubans have a long tradition of renting out their homes to visitors so to sign up new hosts the company simply introduced them to a 21st century platform. >> it was a view to the new idea. and, here, it was something already familiar to the culture. there were tens of thousands of people already sharing their homes. we felt like it wasn't that big of a risk. all we had to do is make sure the community embraced us. >> reporter: pedro and his girlfriend says bringing renters into their home provides more than a steady income. it has broaden their world view. >> we thought it was a pretty good chance to be in touch with people of another country and so

8:33 am
>> good morning. >> i really enjoyed reading this book. >> good. >> so many interesting studies and helpful hints. first of all, what do the most productive people have in common? >> what the most productive people have in common is they have all trained themselves a little bit better how their brain works and they take time and build systems into their days to take time, to make themselves think just a little bit more deeply about what is important to them and how to get it done. >> most people think if you work harder and sweat harder and you work longer and stay in the office take is more productive. you said you are wasting your time. it's about choices. like what? >> we all have 24 hours in each day. what matters is choosing to do the right things. focusing on the right goals. >> we all want to do that, charles! >> exactly right. one of my favorite examples is to do list. we have all written those before and most of us do it the same way. write things at the bottom of the list and things that we are pretty easy at the top of the list because it feels so good to check them off and get them done. turns out that psychologist and neurologists say the right way
8:34 am
your toughest gold at the top of the page and then underneath, break that into a plan. where you can say specifically what you want to get done, how you're going to maryeasure it and makes it easier to start and don't lose track of the most important things and get bogged down by the minutia. >> i have a problem between the workplace and home. i'm pretty good at the workplace. at home i'm bad. you take the professional and take it home and you did it in your case because you wanted have dinner more with your kid? >> exactly right. a method known as the five y that comes out of lean manufacturing. we don't think of our home as a factory but my wife and i said we want to take the five y's and solve the problem why we are not having dinner with our 7-year-old and 4-year-old. the problem is we are not having dinner. why? why is that? we get home too late. why are we getting home too late? at the end of the day we want to leave at 5:00 but all of these e-mails and things to deal with and don't leave the office until 6:00 so why the e-mails at the
8:35 am
we are getting to work too late in the morning! the first meeting is starting too late and why are we getting to work too late in the morning? we want to leave by 8:00 but it takes forever to get the kids dressed and we don't leave until 8:30, 8:45. why are they dressed so late in the morning? because when they wake up they don't know what to put on. a new rule every night they lay out their clothes on the ground and get dressed as soon as they wake up. no one told us what we do in the morning relates to having dinner in the evening. >> the research is there having dinner together as a family not only improves intelligence but also social skills. the data is clear. >> absolutely right. >> cuts back on the criminal record too. >> that is true! that is true! i'm not making that up. >> you had, too, about companies how it works in the companies, that it's all about working with a team and you can work with a team that you feel you can trust, that you feel has your
8:36 am
ability to make mistakes and not be judged. >> exactly right. we know this from looking at how google has studied and teams at "saturday night live" have studied its teams. if you want a team whether at work or be around the thanksgiving dinner table, if you want a team that works you got to make sure everyone can speak up equally and we are training ourselves to pick up on nonverbal cues to listen to each other. >> speaking about equally, interesting. they want you to speak up until you say something the company doesn't want to hear. then they say stop speaking up. >> the smartest team isn't necessarily the best team. >> exactly right. putting all of the smart people together in one team won't work unless you have a smart culture, a smart process. for people really feeling like they can say what they need to say. >> i have to put -- gayle, did you think when with i was reading about this that good teams and the psychological safety and i thought about us. >> i did too. >> on this show and why this show works. you really need to explain in detail sort of that thing. let me ask you, too, though. have you a great story about nursing homes.
8:37 am
of the same idea. one group of seniors unhappy and the other group of seniors happy. why were the seniors happy? >> because what is known as -- they looked for ways to prove that they were in control of their own lives. one of my favorite examples at one of those nursing homes they feed everyone a same meal on a tray and one guy loves chocolate cake and he got that every night served to him. he would trade it away for some other dessert with his colleagues. they asked him why. he said i would rather a meal of my own design than eat what is forced on me even if i love it. >> the thing about "frozen" was good too. the musical was not a hit in the beginning and team had to come together and figure it out. there was a deadline. >> to finding ways to prove we are in control and taking "frozen" on the brink of catastrophe saying i want to tell a story that means something to me about sisters and the surprising insights to
8:38 am
save each other. that's when you have a creative breakthrough. >> to motivate your employs you have to make them feel like you have some control. the first step of creating drive is giving opportunity to make choices. >> exactly right. >> great at home and at work. really interesting book. >> that's right. make choices. got it. thank you, charles. i got choices i want to make around here! smarter, faster, better is on sale right now wherever you want to buy your books. a tony winning actress is in
