You likely have a program of some sort when new employees join your organization – most call it onboarding – but do you have the same process for NEW supervisors?
These onboarding processes are so valuable for new employees, but they can also have value for new supervisors. Everything that leaders do has a ripple in the organization, so it’s even more important to set new leaders up for success in the beginning, when it matters most.
In today’s episode, I’ll share tips for using the ideas of onboarding specifically as they relate to your new supervisors and leaders.

When you talk to Tony Hunter about his journey, he will tell you it’s all about the people. Not just the people who believed in him but his mentors and his amazing team and talented colleagues. Tony is the former CEO and Publisher of the Chicago Tribune. He was offered the job in September 2008 and they filed for bankruptcy in December 2008. Needless to say, his tenure was filled with disruption. Tony and Kevin talk about leadership during changing times and how you need to slow down to speed up. He has been fortunate to look back at his career and recognize that you are either disrupted or a disruptor. In either case, you want your team to be in alignment and own the plan before moving to action.
Today is the last in my series on “unusual” collections for leaders and I’m sticking with the theme of something that you might never consider as something that you can actually collect:
And while this “collection” is unusual, when you start collecting it, I think you will find that your life will be more interesting and have more meaning and you will have less stress and more happiness. And who doesn’t want that?
Most organizations jump right in with the design of a product/content…often missing the WHY. Kevin sits down with Juliana Stancampiano, CEO of Oxygen and author of Radical Outcomes: How to Create Extraordinary Teams that Get Tangible Results. Kevin and Juliana discuss education in the workplace. They believe that in order to achieve great results, you need to move beyond information overload and focus on the business outcomes. It’s about creating a culture of learning and thinking about the content as an experience.
We are continuing in our series of episodes about collections and today’s episode is about collecting memories.
I’ll talk about WHY we should collect memories and HOW to do it better and more often.
Leadership can be defined at multiple levels and can be scaled up and down. Bob Anderson is the co-author of Mastering Leadership and his new book, Scaling Leadership. He joins Kevin to talk about the research and findings which led to the latest book. Using a database of senior leaders providing 360-degree written feedback to fellow senior leaders, he and Bill Anderson look at the qualitative data. They look at the descriptions leaders use to define effective leadership and create a leadership framework. Using the lessons learned, an individual can develop their leadership at scale in their organization to improve performance.
We are continuing in our series of episodes about collections and today’s collection topic is one that I can almost bet you have never thought of collecting: relationships.
And yet, as a leader, when you do this and do it right, I can almost guarantee that you will see your success skyrocket.
There are mistakes and there is epic failure. Warwick Fairfax identifies with the latter and joins Kevin to discuss leadership and moving beyond failure. Warwick is a leadership advisor and founded Crucible Leadership from his own experience of “one of the most spectacular business failures in the history of his home nation of Australia.” First and foremost, start with forgiveness either of yourself or someone else. Examine your true self, not negative or positive, but who you really are. What are your strengths? What is your passion? Use this reflection to recognize, learn from and move forward. When leading your team, believe in your vision and create buy-in.
