Most organizations jump right in with the design of a product/content…often missing the WHY.

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.

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.

We are in the middle of a series of episodes about collections. And if you haven’t noticed yet, some of these collections are of “things” that you might not have thought of collecting. In fact, most of them aren’t anything that you can put on a shelf or in a room of your house.

Today’s episode is no different as I’m revealing the value in collecting questions as well as an easy process and tips for helping you to collect them.

There are more new managers in the workplace than veterans. You must start somewhere.

There are opportunities to coach your new leader and opportunities for you to grow if you find yourself in that position. It starts with conversations and willingness to build relationships, even if it is uncomfortable.

This is the third episode in a series on “collections”. 

Now to the casual observer, a series on collections might seem an odd choice for a leadership blog. But trust me, it’s not. Because we aren’t talking about things that take up space on a shelf or that you put in a display case. We are talking about collections that will change your leadership life. And in this episode, we’re collecting IDEAS.

Many organizations are not thinking of how their culture can move them forward. Not only do you need to think about how to create your culture, but you also need to own it. Eric Stutzman is a co-author of The Culture Question: How to Create a Workplace Where People Like to Work. The book includes survey feedback from over 2,400 leaders and employees. Kevin and Eric talk about some of these findings, such as there is a direct correlation between leaders communicating with purpose AND in meaningful ways and people feeling like they have a great workplace. In order to create meaningful work, there need to be intentional conversations about progress. Further, how and when a leader should respond to conflict.

Mar 15, 2019

Today I’m talking again about collections but this collection won’t take up a single inch of space in your house or office and yet could be one of the most “valuable” things you can collect.

Fred Halstead is an executive coach and author of Leadership Skills that Inspire Incredible Results.

3. The importance of acknowledgment.
