I am on a mission to redefine the modern workplace. It all starts with you being a better leader. Ready? Let's go.
This episode of Check Your References, @marypmcg and I discuss @candacedoby ’s antithesis. A man who’s fearful business decisions ended up costing 100’s of lives.
Just a little nugget dropped by @candacedoby from last week’s interview! . I’m so excited for tomorrow. We are gonna talk about her #antithesis #worstbossever at being courageous and facing fear. Oooo! 🤫
Death and taxes... love and marriage... what do they all have in common? . 🎶can’t have one without the other 🎵 I had such a great time talking to @candacedoby about this in the workplace in our last episode. . Can you guess our Worst Boss Ever for courage and fear?
Episode 8 is up: When something seems scary, usually it means I'm on the right track to doing something exciting, something that matters to me. . I wanted to know if there were steps I could follow to help me understand fear. To work with it instead of against it. Encouragement speaker, and incredible leader, @candacedoby , has used Courage, not only to inspire corporate teams, but to live her life courageously. . She helps us to understand that Fear can be just as useful as Courage... maybe even more.
If gratitude was a superhero... it would be.... da a da da! Destroyerrrr of egooooo! I just love the image that puts in my head. . It’s all, good gestures being all badass! . Who is your superhero?
Grateful for fun friends! Also, friends you can really get behind supporting! @cyndiespiegel read a bit from her book in the last episode, but it’s such a great exercise to try at work, at home... ok, anywhere... . We both know you deserve to feel that profound impact... especially when shit hits the fan 😉
Did you try the experiment yet? The one from the last episode? What do you think so far?
Get ready!!! Today’s episode is special. . 1. We are taking a little break from the usual format for the holidays. . 2. We have a guest appearance from @cyndiespiegel reading from her amazing new book. Yay! . Listen to the episode to see what comes next! And how we turn this into the team building exercise that will change your team forever!
If you were inspired by our last guest, and you are wanting to be a little more flexible as a leader, I made a little something for you.
Our Check Your References episode! If you haven’t checked it out. @marypmcg and I explore a leader who was once the opposite of flexible, like out guest the week before @susanni_tsunami. This one is tricky because her reputation may have been tarnished by this one inflexible decision. Let me know what you think!
It always gets me how we can learn more from the “what not to do’s,” than we usually do from having success right out of the gate! Ahhh, even though it’s never fun to learn the tough lessons, don’t you usually look back and say something like: “I’m so glad I went through that because it made me stronger.” Being stronger has so much to do with knowing what didn’t/doesn’t work, and getting there can be rough. I get it. . If you want to hear a really elegant way to help you get through it, check out the @susanni_tsunami episode.
Change is always hard. In the last episode @susanni_tsunami shares how he has taken what he has learned about change as a leader. He now uses it to inspire and create strong leaders within his team. I love how he breaks it down for us!
S1E5: @susanni of @dollaride and WeDidIt, talks about FLEXIBILITY. . He shares where the line is when being flexible goes from working for you to working against you. He also shares tough lessons learned about being too flexible. . My favorite moment... when he shared how his ideal client surprised him by showing up in an unexpected way! Enjoy!
First, I want to say THANK YOU! To everyone who has messaged, emailed... all the things to reach out. Your questions and requests are lighting me up! . So, I thought I would ask a question... We have already covered “Finding and Fostering Potential”, and “Sensitivity” on the pod. (And compared them to the worst examples, so much fun.) . I’m curious if you can remember your favorite leader,and what quality they had that stood out to you.
Episode 4 is here! Sensitivity is... PAYING ATTENTION! We have two sides of the coin to compare. The do’s and please just don’ts, of how to use sensitivity effectively. what kind of leader are you?
Yes! You know that good, good feeling... what have you solved that you are proud of lately?
This is so basic, and yet, how many of us are guilty of not leading with the right information?
I am honored to chat with Yemisi Yoosuf about the surprising subject of Sensitivity. Surprising because of his choice of career. Not only is he an effective and inspiring leader, he is also a really wonderful storyteller. Enjoy! It’s up!
Happy Monday! I love getting refreshers on Monday to set my week up the right way. . So, I thought you might like to borrow some of my reminders from the last week’s podcast episode. . I hope you have an amazing week filled with sensitivity and heightened awareness!
Best. Librarian. Ever. And so so good on our Check Your References segment!
