This is the 300th episode of Remarkable TV and when we recorded the video, the World Series was just getting started in the United States. So, it seemed that talking a little baseball and averages was an appropriate topic.

Now, don’t worry. This isn’t really a baseball lesson. This is a lesson for leaders and it’s one that you won’t want to miss.

Tweet it out: The very best baseball players fail 70% of their times at bat. Given that, should you be taking more swings? @KevinEikenberry

Words are powerful and when we use the right words in the right situations, they can have a huge impact in our ability to be effective as leaders.

Today, we are diving deep into a word that seems innocent, but might not be when we are aware of how we are using it.

Beware the Word ‘Actually’

These days, there is no shortage of communication tools at our fingertips - literally. And while this means that it is easier than ever to communicate with one another, it doesn't necessarily mean that we are communicating better. In fact, some might argue that we are getting worse at communicating.

So, today I am going to remind us all of a powerful, but often forgotten communication tool that we should all be using more frequently.

Leadership and communication go hand in hand and most organizations are looking to improve communications with their teams. Jack Modzelewski is the author of Talk is Chief: Leadership, Communication and Credibility in a High-Stakes World and joins Kevin to discuss culture, communication, storytelling, and crisis management. Whether they realize it or not, Jack believes leaders are chief credibility officers. They create the communication culture in the organization. Leaders need to be themselves and bring all their experiences into communication, regardless of level. This is especially true in times of crisis or change. Executive communication should not only address the change but should include milestones and personal benefit.

In this episode, Jack shares his thoughts on 1. Storytelling and sizzle. 2. Listening and communication. 3. Change communication. 4. Crisis management.

And while it’s certainly a valid and good question, my answer is to flip it and instead…

Make RELATEDNESS your goal.

What does that mean?

Managers have the opportunity and the responsibility to lead. Lisa Haneberg joins Kevin to discuss the 2nd edition of 10 Steps to Be A Successful Manager. Lisa recognizes people in the middle get it done and “manager” is not a negative word it is a job. Leadership is when you step up and do what others aren’t doing. Lisa wrote this second edition, not because leadership and management have changed, but the way we convey the messages have changed. The second edition is also aligned with ATD survey-based research on social skills. She shares practical ways to become a successful manager, like tapping into your team’s intrinsic motivation and being ready to flex as the normal, chaotic business happens.

In this episode, Lisa discusses 1. Clear behavioral expectations. 2. Team agility. 3. Accountability vs. Engagement.
