How do you define success? Is it the toys you own? Is it the relationships you have? Doug Holladay believes success is finding joy, meaning, and satisfaction on a profound level. Doug is founder and CEO of PathNorth, Georgetown University professor, former White House advisor, and the author of Rethinking Success: Eight Essential Practices for Finding Meaning in Work and Life. Kevin talks about the 3 O’s of leadership: Outcomes, Others, and Ourselves. Today he and Doug focus on the latter – ourselves. You can find your story when you reflect and acknowledge not only your strengths but where your blind spots and bias lie. Further, you can look to understand someone else’s story. Leaders can humanize the workplace and create a community where their team thrives.

Sometimes we need to think differently. Kevin sits down with Roger L. Martin, author of When More is Not Better – Overcoming America’s Obsession with Economic Efficiency. In his latest book, Roger explains how more is better for a while until we become obsessed. Roger and Kevin tackle leadership as it relates to models and working in silos. The job of a good leader is to not only encourage but make sure communication is happening across departments. Systems aren’t complicated, just complex. We need to consider how things work together and have real discussions about the pieces of the puzzle for more robust decisions. Roger also shares the big picture of economic efficiency and how we as leaders and individuals play a role in the system.

Everyone is talent. Your team, your bosses, and you. Today Kevin sits down with Rishon Blumberg, co-author of GAME CHANGER: How to Be 10x in the Talent Economy and co-founder of 10x Management. Rishon discusses 10x talent and 10x companies. The talent not only knows their stuff, but they can also share information at the human level. 10x companies create an environment hospitable to exceptional talent. Finding the right people is not an issue. Attracting, retaining, and managing your talent help your organization become more innovative and more responsive to experience growth. You need to know your talent and show commitment by playing to their strengths.

We all have the potential; the potential to be remarkable or to use our powers for evil. Research shows that we are influenced by those around us. So, it’s up to leaders to create the environment to build integrity. Kevin sits down with Rob Chesnut, former federal prosecutor, former General Counsel and most recently the Chief Ethics Officer of Airbnb, Inc. He is also the author of Intentional Integrity: How Smart Companies Can Lead an Ethical Revolution. Data shows that trust is at an all-time low. This is huge because we have a lot of problems to solve and we need to do it together. Rob believes if your actions are consistent with your values, you will have a competitive advantage. Integrity not only resonates with your team; it resonates with consumers.

It’s all about your journey, your journey of growth and development. When you find your passion and purpose, you will bring other people to the table for a shared vision. This will lead to success. Carter Phipps is coauthor of Conscious Leadership: Elevating Humanity Through Business with Steve McIntosh, and Whole Foods Market CEO John Mackey. Carter and Kevin discuss principles and mindsets for value-based leadership. He shares examples of what purpose first means and the importance of looking beyond a transaction to how it impacts the other stakeholders. Carter also shares thoughts on the need for both competition and collaboration to get the best answer.

The topic of today’s episode would have been nearly unthinkable six months ago…and yet, here we are, talking about masks and how contentious they have become.

I have a problem with masks, and it’s not what you think. It’s not political and it’s not scientific. Check out this episode and tell me if you agree in the comments below.

Tweet it out: Remember that when you are wearing your mask people can’t see you smile. Make sure you DO smile, and smile with your eyes! @KevinEikenberry

What are the traits of a go-to person? You know, the person who gets the job done. Most likely, we all want to be a person who is reliable and great to work with. Bruce Tulgan cautions us though not to confuse go-to with a yes man. Bruce’s latest book is THE ART OF BEING INDISPENSABLE WORK: Win Influence, Beat Overcommitment, and Get the Right Things Done. Kevin and Bruce discuss the importance of showing up and being valuable. When we play the long game and show others how we can help, they will want to reciprocate and help us. However, don’t get caught always saying yes. There are other options to serve needs and provide value. You don’t want to be remembered for the “yes” you didn’t deliver.

If you’re like me, you went to school for a long time. And 13 or more years will teach you that knowledge is what “wins” the game of school.

So if knowledge is a good thing (and it is!), where’s the danger?

Tweet it out: Make your goal to know more, not to know it all – because you can’t anyway. @KevinEikenberry

Most of us would agree that a component of leadership is making other people better. Frances Frei believes that to have progress, we need to have trust. Frances is the co-author, with Anne Morris, of Unleashed: The Unapologetic Leader’s Guide to Empowering Everyone Around You. She explains to Kevin that you need to be unapologetic because you can’t wait for permission when action needs to happen. It’s all about trust and empowerment. Their research shows that to bring out the best in one other person, you need to set high standards AND be committed to their success. Frances shares stories about companies where the most effective leaders use a combination of trust, love, and belonging to create success in their teams.

As the title suggests, today I am sharing lessons we can learn from rivers.

Now when I say “rivers”, it’s likely that we all have a different river in mind. And regardless of which river you think of – whether it’s the Mississippi River, the Hudson River, the Pere Marquette River (near my childhood home) or any other – there are lessons that we can get from rivers.

Tweet it out: Remember the lessons of the river and you will use your persistence for the benefit of others and yourself. @KevinEikenberry

Do you take the time to downshift, or contemplate, or reflect? Most of us probably want to do that, and where can we find the time? Kevin chats with Joseph Badaracco, John Shad Professor of Business Ethics at Harvard Business School and author. Today, they focus on his latest book, Step Back: How to Bring the Art of Reflection into your Busy Life. Joseph conducted interviews with executives and professionals about reflection – What is it? How do you do it? Where do you find the time? He also studied some classic works to develop principles about the practice. He found that people do find the time to reflect, on their terms. There was little repetition in the method. He suggests that it’s OK to pause and find those moments because, in the long run, they are a powerful tool to look at problems differently, help you sort out feelings, prioritize and help both you and your team.

Today I’m talking about Leadership and Toilet Paper – yes, I really am.

In the past I’ve done mash-ups of leadership with random topics, and challenged people to send me suggestions. You can see a channel of these past mashups here. Jose Luis sent this one in. Now I don’t know if he was serious, or just doesn’t like me, 😉 but…challenge accepted.

What does it take to become passionate about your work? How do you transfer that passion to your team? Jacqueline Throop-Robinson has spent years researching this topic to get to the heart of employee engagement. What she found is that it’s not enough to have meaning in your work. People also need to have a sense of progress. Jacqueline is the founder of Spark Engagement Inc., a global analytics company in Human Resources focusing on employee engagement and best-selling author of Fire Up Your Team: 50 Ways for Leaders to Connect, Collaborate and Create with their Teams (2013). She has found there are 21 drivers of employee engagement. She suggests that it’s not the leaders’ job to make their teams passionate. However, they need to challenge them to find that passion.

Last week, I talked about the power that routines can have in our lives. If you missed that, you can watch it here.

The thing about routines is that when they change, we are often left feeling a little lost, confused or even discombobulated. And if you’re like most of us, our routines over the last four months have changed significantly.

Are you feeling lost working from home?

If you are, the answer might be in adjusting your routine to better fit your current situation. In this episode, I’m giving you six easy steps to help you evaluate existing and create new routines that you will help you be more successful.

Tweet it out: You have routines. But are they serving you? Think about your routines decide which ones are helping you reach your goals – and change the rest! @KevinEikenberry

How does your team show up for work? How do you show up? Gary Hamel believes people leave their gifts of creativity and daring at home because it is not encouraged. He joins Kevin to discuss why he thinks organizations have been incapacitated by their lack of humanity. Gary is the author of The Future of Management (2007) and his latest book, with Michele Zanini, Humanocracy: Creating Organizations as Amazing as the People Inside Them. He shares data about the increase in bureaucracy in organizations and the decline of productivity growth. In short, the old model is not working and organizations need to think about the human element. Further, people at all levels can make change where they are and building community is a good place to start.

Thirty years ago, we were introduced to The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. And my guess is most of us have read the book, or at least been exposed to one (or more) of the habits; Think Win/Win. Kevin sits down with Sean Covey, son of Stephen, to discuss the anniversary edition and what makes it unique. Sean is a New York Times bestselling author (The 4 Disciplines of Execution, The 6 Most Important Decisions You’ll Ever Make, The 7 Habits of Happy Kids, The Leader in Me, and The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens) and president of FranklinCovey Education. Sean builds upon the principle-centered approach for solving problems, whether they are personal or professional. He shares anecdotes and takeaways on how the habits have remained unchanged and how we can use them today.

When you work on your own personal development does it just benefit you?

Not at all.

In fact, everybody wins when you take the time to work on your development.

The organization.

The team.

Your boss.

And of course, you.

So, the next question is, who is responsible for your development?

Tweet it out: Hopefully you work for an organization that invest in you. Whether they do or don’t your development still belongs to you. @KevinEikenberry

Are you waiting for development opportunities, or are you being intentional in creating opportunities? Dave McKeown suggests that leaders with the most impact push for growth. Dave is a leadership consultant and the author of The Self-Evolved Leader: Elevate Your Focus and Develop Your People in a World That Refuses to Slow Down. He joins Kevin to discuss what it means to be a self-evolved leader. It’s not about saving the day and getting it all done. Leaders understand their strengths and weaknesses (and use both). Further, they look to elevate focus, share stories and provide context for alignment, and develop people.

In this episode, Dave discusses:

  • Characteristics of a self-evolved leader.
  • The cycle of mediocrity.
  • Micro disciplines.

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
