Last week I talked about the first step in giving effective feedback. You can watch that episode here.

In this episode, I am talking about the second step. But before I do that, let's review the four steps again:

  1. Feedback must be heard.
  2. Feedback must be understood.
  3. Feedback must be accepted.
  4. Feedback must be applied.

To help you apply step #2 above, I am giving you six simple and easily implemented ideas in this episode.

Your face is how you feel about yourself and how you project to the world. Maya Hu-Chan is the author of SAVING FACE: How to Preserve Dignity and Build Trust. She sits down with Kevin to talk about the role face plays in leadership through stories and examples. Whether we are working face-to-face or remote, local or global, leaders need to understand the concept of “saving face” to create and build relationships for organizational success. When team members feel psychologically safe, they perform better.

Key Points

  • Honoring face, saving face, and losing face.
  • Psychological safety.
  • Triple A Model.

There are tons of tips out there for delivering feedback. The problem is that tips are only tactics until we start with the basics.

First, we must understand the goal of feedback which is that the other person will take action on that feedback.

And then, we have to ensure that the feedback is actually heard.

In today’s episode, I am giving you four invaluable tips to help you ensure that your feedback is heard so that it can be acted upon.

How do you give feedback? Maybe the better question is, how do you receive feedback? Steve Herz believes we need to create the environment for the give and take. Once we can accept feedback and take action to improve ourselves, giving feedback is easier and more accepting. Steve is the author of DON’T TAKE YES FOR AN ANSWER: Using Authority, Warmth, and Energy to Get Exceptional Results. Steve and Kevin discuss the AWE model and the “soft skills” we don’t focus on or dedicate resources to building. Yet, these skills help us become more confidence-inspiring and more respected, leading to more trust in your team. Steve shares examples of the model in action and how this now plays out in our current work environment.

Key Points

In this episode, Steve discusses:

  • Feedback.
  • The AWE model - authority, warmth, and energy.

Remember recess? Swinging happily on swings, monkeying around on the monkey bars, or zooming down slides...

As kids, this was an important part of the day. It gives children the chance to socialize, burn off some much needed energy and re-focus so they are better equipped to learn throughout the day.

Not surprisingly, these are all things that we need as adults as well. And it's why breaks are so powerful to our success.

When we make the time for breaks throughout the day, we will get more accomplished, have better ideas and generally less stress.

And when we're working remotely, we need these breaks even more. In today's episode, I'm laying out the case for breaks!

Timothy Lupfer wants us to get back to basics about leadership. It is a role we are usually given and involves followers (whether they be employees, students…). Leadership is narrower than most of us think. Leadership is the role of affecting followers to achieve organizational goals. Tim is a retired Army, former consultant, and the author of Leadership Tough Love: Examining Leaders Through the Lens of Reality. He shares with Kevin his thoughts about leadership and why it’s more than just a position. He discusses scalability, specifically as it relates to the number of true relationships we have. Leaders need to focus on their immediate group, and we need good leaders at every level (to keep close relationships).

You are leading…and others are watching.

This is true when things are going well and when they’re not going so well.

That’s right. That means as a leader, you are on display. And in the words of my friend, Tom Peters, it’s always showtime.

However, all of this does not mean that I am suggesting that as leaders we have to be “actors” or pretending at our job. Quite the opposite in fact.

Check out this episode below to see how leaders can harness the “spotlight”!

Tweet it out: As a leader your team is always watching. You ARE leading by example. Do you like the example you are setting right now? @KevinEikenberry

How are you using the power you have (for good or evil)? Yes, we all have power just through our relationships between colleagues, family, and friends. Thereby, it can be a bit tricky. According to Deborah Gruenfeld, we need to embrace and own our power, even if we are uncomfortable with it. Deb is a social psychologist and the author of Acting with Power. She shares with Kevin that there are levels of power and it is a responsibility that is yours. Often there are negative connotations with power, however, when you look at it in action, force is rarely used. People want to help you, so you will help them. When you have control over another’s outcomes you need to think about the interests you are serving; be the person other people hope you will be.
