Today’s episode is the result of a challenge that I issued earlier this year – asking viewers to give me a word, any word, that I would then tie back to leadership.

And today, I am comparing leadership and airplanes.

Whether you care to admit it, you have struggled. Whether it be school, in a relationship, or professionally. It is these challenges we face and how we overcome them that define who we are and offer perspective. Kevin sits down with Bobby Herrera, co-founder and CEO of the Populus Group and author of The Gift of Struggle: Life-Changing Lessons About Leading. Bobby understands that struggle precedes our transformation. That still does not make the struggle any easier. Bobby and Kevin discuss how we reframe the way we think about struggle and use to help us lead. He shares stories from his leadership journey and challenges us to share our stories (regardless of our level) to give our team the why; to connect. Now you all can figure out the how together.

In this episode, Bobby discusses: 1. Struggle. 2. Getting to the culture you want. 3. Importance of coaches and mentors. 4. A leader’s role in development.

Data shows that by 2030, 75% of the workforce will be made up of individuals born between 1981-1996. We often refer to this generation as Millennials and they are often described as lazy and entitled. Chris Tuff is the author of The Millennial Whisperer: The Practical, Profit-Focused Playbook for Working With and Motivating the World’s Largest Generation. He joins Kevin to discuss how this workforce is not different from previous generations, however because of their experiences, like when they were introduced to technology, they are requiring change. Leaders need to use millennials to become better equipped for the future; to make those changes that will lead to the future success of the organization.

In this episode, Chris shares 1. Importance of stereotyping a generation. 2. The 70/30 rule. 3. Advice to keep millennials engaged at work

In a daily email that I send, I asked everyone to send me their favorite ice cream flavors. And I learned A LOT about ice cream – particularly that there are lots of flavors, people LOVE ice cream and they are very particular about what and why they like it. But I also learned a lot about relationships and leadership from this very simple exercise.

If you lead a department, a team, or a person (or family), you have probably had a coaching moment. Kevin is joined by Melvin Smith, co-author of Helping People Change: Coaching with Compassion for Lifelong Learning and Growth. Often, we coach to fix something or fill a learning gap. When we coach for compliance, however, we trigger a physiological response that leads to defensiveness and our feedback works against us. Melvin believes we need to start with the person and find out what they want to do/be. We want to trigger a positive physiological response, which opens people up to more creative thinking and sustainable change.

In this episode, Melvin discusses 1. Coaching vs. helping. 2. Emotional attractors. 3. Personal vision statements and balance sheets.

Remarkable Dialogue

Ask yourself: Are you coaching for compliance or with compassion?

Something I’ve noticed over the years is that the word “fine” has an interesting connotation in our lives. It’s often used as a “conversation stopper” – a way to indicate that it’s good enough. But the question really needs to be:

Is fine always a good thing?

Is fine good enough?

In today’s episode, I am going to give you tips to help you deal with “fine” in your leadership role, your workplace, your relationships and your life.

If you are looking to recruit the best talent for your organization, you need to address the big issues in your organization. Caroline Stokes is the founder of FORWARD, an executive headhunting and executive coaching company and the author of Elephants Before Unicorns: Emotionally Intelligent HR Strategies to Save Your Company. She realized that just helping companies hire someone to fill a position was not enough. We need to remember the human element and she helps individuals and organizations adapt through emotional intelligence. Caroline suggests hiring should be thought of as a process, not just an event. She shares with Kevin her thoughts on authenticity about your brand and the importance of real and difficult conversations (not just make an impression) to recruit and retain the people who will make your organization successful.

In this episode, Caroline talks about 1. Recruiters. 2. Employer brand. 3. Fake unicorns.
