Do you remember the TV show “Password”? If you don’t know it, you can check it out here.

In the game, two teams attempted to win by conveying mystery words to each other using only single-word clues.

The word to be conveyed (the “password”) was given to one player on each team and was whispered softly to the audience.

So today, I am whispering a word that I want you to be careful with. The word is:

Safe

Now let me be clear: I want you, your families, your teams, your customers, and everyone to be physically healthy. I am not making a political statement, a comment about mask wearing, social/physical distancing, or anything like that.

But I also want you, your families, your teams, your customers, and everyone to be mentally and psychologically healthy too.

And that’s where I think we have to be a bit careful with the word safe. Listen to the Remarkable TV episode to find out more about what I mean when I ask you to be careful with this word.

Tweet it out: When we tell people to be safe – we want them to be healthy and protected, but we might be encouraging them to be overly careful or wary. How about encouraging people to be well instead? @KevinEikenberry

Where is your growth coming from? Keith Ferrazzi suggests you don’t need a title, an office, or even a physical workspace to make a difference. However, you need to have a vision and get people behind that vision. Keith is the co-author, with Noel Weyrich, of Leading Without Authority: How the New Power of Co-Elevation Can Break Down Silos, Transform Teams, and Reinvent Collaboration. Keith and Kevin discuss control, authority, and empowerment. Your organizations and teams suffer when we are fighting for resources. To be successful, you need to create an environment where the team lifts each other; co-elevation. And yes, this does take work. However, results come when you stay committed to the mission and committed to the people.

When you look into your crystal ball, what does the future of work look like? On a good day, that is a difficult question. How we think about work, leadership, and our organizations have changed more in the past six months than in decades. Jacob Morgan is joining Kevin for a second time to discuss trends impacting the future of leadership and the mindsets and skills future leaders will need to have. Jacob is a trained futurist and wants to help leaders succeed. Through interviews and surveys, he wanted to know how and why leadership is changing, how ready are leaders today for these changes, and what leaders need to do now. He shares the results and take-aways in his latest book, The Future Leader: 9 Skills and Mindsets to Succeed in the Next Decade.

You’ve likely heard of the Law of Attraction. In short, the basic idea is that our thoughts turn into things eventually. The idea is that we are like human magnets – always attracting something.

Not everyone agrees with this principle and the principle often leaves out an important part – the fact that thinking alone, while an important part of the attraction process, leaves out the harder part – action and work.

This short episode isn’t meant to leave out the action part, but rather to illuminate the first part – either to remind or influence or encourage you.

Tweet it out: The law of attraction is real – get your thoughts right, and couple it with action – and you will change your circumstances and results. @KevinEikenberry

Do you ask for ideas? Not just give permission to share ideas, but really invite new ideas. When Karin Hurt and David Dye worked with organizations, they noticed a pattern. Management thought their teams were not speaking up, and employees felt their ideas were not heard. This is all about culture. Karin and David join Kevin to discuss this pattern and their research leading to their latest book, Courageous Cultures: How to Build Teams of Micro-Innovators, Problem Solvers, and Customer Advocates. They found that across industries and countries, people hold on to negative experiences. So, leaders not only need to create a culture of trust, but they need to be clear of what ideas they want and how those ideas lead to organizational success.

When we give feedback, it is with the hope that the person on the receiving end will take action on that feedback. But giving feedback isn’t a one-and-done action. It’s a journey that has many steps along the way.

So before we (or should I say ‘they’) get to action, we must realize the emotions they will go through after hearing the feedback.

Once you understand the emotions, there are four steps you can take to help others apply your feedback.

Tweet it out: Effective feedback isn’t a hit and run – it is a journey. If you want to get to the destination you have to travel with the other person. @KevinEikenberry

The Industrial Age. Workers came into the factories and were told what jobs to do and how to do them. And for the time, this worked. However, we know the world and our work has changed, yet many leaders still operate under this model. I guess that’s why only 23% of the leaders are deemed effective. Alain Hunkins is the author of Cracking the Leadership Code: Three Secrets to Building Strong Leaders. He joins Kevin to talk leadership mindset and observations he has made from firsthand experiences leading leadership trainings for tens of thousands of leaders within hundreds of companies. Leaders need to understand what drives their team and sometimes this involves a difficult conversation. Success comes when you have a quality relationship and trust.

This is the third in a series of videos on feedback. You can watch the previous videos from the links below.

In this episode, we talk about how to get others to accept the feedback you are giving – leading them to action.

Tweet it out: Before people can apply the feedback you give them, help them accept it as valid and useful. Before that happens, application is unlikely. @KevinEikenberry

How fast are you going? How fast should you be going? Do you even know where you are going? Kevin is joined by Alan Willett, author of Lead with Speed: Fire Up Your Team, Power Your Engines of Development, and Make Your Organization Soar. Many organizations would say they need to be faster, whether that’s features added, products to market, or customer response. Alan suggests our speed needs to be relevant to the value. You can go as fast as you want, yet if you aren’t accomplishing your goals or are just fixing problems, are you moving forward? Sometimes it’s not about working harder/faster, it’s about doing something different.
