Good Work Ethic – Episode 15

In this episode of 180 Mentoring, have I got a story for you! I know my audience appreciates stories, so listen up. Recently I had an unwelcome process which I had put off, but when I finally accomplished it the results were great. However, the job had some major aggravations, likely caused by some previous workers who had a poor work ethic. In my thirty years’ experience leading and mentoring, I have seen first-hand how it doesn’t pay to cut corners. For better or for worse, your habits reflect on you as a professional as well as on those who lead you. And now for the story . . . . Do the kind of work that makes you proud, not ashamed, years later. Recently I installed two new one-piece toilets in my house. The first one went pretty well but the second toilet project became a nightmare when I realized that the previous installer had used a kind of adhesive that looked like the proper silicone-based sealer, but was in fact like super-glue. I had to spend hours hacking away at this...

Good Work Ethic – Episode 15

Keeping Your Word – Episode 14

Sometimes the smallest opportunity for keeping your word can make one of the biggest impacts in a person’s life. This goes for anyone in a position of leadership, whether in business, parenting, or other relationships. You know you appreciate it when someone keeps his or her word to you. Make sure you do the same for the people around you. In this episode, I share a story from my own experience about when a co-worker kept his word to me. The situation wasn’t even in our office – it was recreation. Listen to hear how impactful this was for me. What does keeping your word mean? Keeping your word means following through on promises you make. Or even if you don’t say the words, “I promise”, it simply means doing what you say you’ll do. This kind of integrity is also evident when you are honest with those under your leadership. At times, you need to point out an area where a person needs to improve. You can be honest and encouraging at the same time. If you aren’t one hundred per...

Keeping Your Word – Episode 14

Leadership Professionalism – Episode 13

As a leader, you will encounter days when your calendar will be filled with commitments. Expect it. Then a request will come for your company to do work for a potential client. You know your company will not even have a chance to do the job for that person. What should you do? If you refer him or her to one of your competitors, you might never gain that person as a client. On the other hand, if you promise service that’s unrealistic, or if you lead the person to believe things will be OK until you have time to do the job, the problem may grow and make the potential client very unhappy. Both scenarios could have been possible in a situation I recently experienced as a client. Listen to this episode to find out which way it went for me. Where do leadership knowledge and education come from? Of course, leadership education can come from books, classes, and on-the-job training. However, if you keep your eyes open, opportunities and examples will present themselves in situations you enc...

Leadership Professionalism – Episode 13

New Leader / New Office – Episode 12

You’ve just been assigned to a new office or position as a team leader. What team leader skills do you need to successfully introduce yourself and begin the job? If you try to come across as though you’re amazing and you have a whole new system to implement, you’re probably going to de-motivate your new team. Believe it or not, I have experienced that kind of new leader as an employee and our team went from productive to unproductive pretty quickly. Catch this episode of 180 Mentoring to hear best practices for true success as a leader in a new position, regardless of how much experience you may or may not already have. Don’t confuse leadership philosophy with leadership expectations The most important idea to convey to your new team is your philosophy of leadership. Leadership philosophy is about who you are and why you do the things that you do. In three or four minutes, you should be able to convey to your team ideas such as what has impacted your life, what your idea of lead...

New Leader / New Office – Episode 12

Leadership Knowledge – Episode 11

What knowledge is essential for good leaders? One of the most valuable pieces of leadership knowledge you can possess is this: You don’t have to know everything to be a fantastic leader! Does that sound counter-intuitive? Let me explain. The more I learn, the less I know. No one is automatically licensed to be a good leader. As a leader, it’s ok if you don’t know everything. In fact, you can’t. If you try to come across as having all the answers, others will see through it and respect you less. You just have to know how to solve problems; how to figure things out. Tune in to this episode to hear more insight I have gleaned over years as a leader myself (and yes, I have made some major mistakes!). Knowledgeable leaders know how to handle unknown unknowns During a press conference, former U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld once spoke about “known knowns, known unknowns, and unknown unknowns”. People who know how to tackle the “unknown unknowns” are the ones supervisors ...

Inspired Leadership – Episode 10

Leadership is the most important part of a team or company. Without effective leadership, everyone will struggle to reach the goal. But what makes leadership effective? In this episode of 180 Mentoring, I discuss why I think Inspired Leadership is the most effective type of leadership and how you can lead in a way that inspires your team. Listen to this episode to hear my thoughts and tips. Do you need to inspire the people you lead? The idea of inspiring your team is not an uncommon idea in today’s leadership culture. Many people would argue that it’s not essential for a leader to be inspiring. What do you think? Do we need to focus on it as much as people say we do? Is it all it’s cracked up to be? I think the answers is YES. In this episode, I will explain why I think it is important to inspire those you are leading and how you can begin to do so in your team. What is your definition of an Inspiring Leader? You can’t be an inspiring leader unless you know what it is. What’s ...

Inspired Leadership – Episode 10

Work To The Yes In Your Business and Leadership – Episode 9

In my many years of business leadership, I have noticed that the biggest roadblocks and frustrations that face leaders and their teams are often caused by the smallest issues. These issues are minor but when left unresolved become huge hurdles. If you take the time to work hard to say “yes” to a new opportunity or process instead of taking the easy route by saying “no”, you could prevent many of the little issues from arising and frustrating your future progress. In today’s episode I will outline 4 reasons why taking the extra time to work towards the ‘yes” is worth it. You don’t become famous for saying “no” History is great at showing us what works and what doesn’t work. All we have to do is look back at those who have been successful and dissect how they achieved great things. If you look at the famous people of history, you won’t see anyone who is famous for saying “no.” “No” to new processes, “no” to innovation, or ‘no” to improving a product. Those whom his...

Work To The Yes In Your Business and Leadership – Episode 9

Become a Problem Solver – Episode 8

Problems and the workplace go hand in hand. The very nature of working with others means there will be problems. Relationship problems, business problems, workplace problems, there seems to be no end. I’d argue that without problems, it is impossible to grow a competent team and grow your business. When a problem arises it gives you an opportunity to grow not only as a problem solver but as an effective leader. Join me on this episode of 180 Mentoring as I talk about how to solve problems in a way that benefits the entire team. Be a problem solver not a problem facilitator There are two types of people in the workplace, problem solvers and problem facilitators. Problem solvers confront a problem with hope and determination to grow and are not afraid to admit they don’t have the answer. A problem facilitator often causes problems to arise by their actions. They approach a problem with an ego and are unable to admit they need help. As a leader, you need to strive to be a problem sol...

Leadership In Times of Crisis, Episode #7

Nobody really enjoys a crisis situation. But good leadership in times of crisis is what enables teams to work together effectively and efficiently to deal with the crisis wisely and well. On this episode of 180 Mentoring, I’m addressing the issue of leadership in times of crisis because I’ve been asked to speak to the issue. And it’s something I’m no stranger to. I thought it would be helpful to start out with a story from my past about a jet that was on fire, and two men who were right in the thick of the action. Their responses were very, very different – and one of them demonstrates what good leaders do in times of crisis. You’re going to enjoy this great example. Do you a plan for how you will implement your leadership in times of crisis? We know crisis times are coming. It’s an inevitability we can’t avoid. So doesn’t it make sense to put together a crisis action plan that you and your team are well versed in? That way, when the crisis does arrive, everyone knows what ...
