Fred Halstead Are You a Good Listener? Be honest. Are you a great listener? Have you mastered the art of asking powerful questions?

How is Energy Affecting Your Leadership? – a conversation with Elise Auxier, an expert in understanding the power of energy for achieving greater leadership effectiveness

Elise Auxier How is Energy Affecting Your Leadership? Every one of us has a ‘tank’ of energy, both positive and negative. What will you choose to do with yours? It is not woo-woo when I say that everything is made up of energy. It was a discovery of Albert Einstein. As leaders, we should be taking responsibility for not operating out of habit or default, and begin making choices (using our energy) that positively impact our teams, the business, our families and everyone around us. With the responsibility to lead, we have accepted the responsibility of uplifting and doing right by those who follow us. How can you affect everyone around you in a positive way? Elise Auxier joins Steve in this podcast to discuss the various levels of energy, recognizing them and learning to master the positive use of energy.

Perfect the Art of Asking Beautiful Questions – “Questionologist” Warren Berger has studied hundreds to understand the use of questions in generating original ideas, solving problems and more

Warren Berger Perfect the Art of Asking Beautiful Questions You are a leader. You’ve earned that position because of what you know and how you implement that knowledge. People come to you for answers. Having the answer is great, but so is having the confidence and humility to admit when you don’t. It is impossible to know everything in today’s complex world, but it’s not impossible to find answers to everything when you learn to ask great questions. Successful leaders and business executives need to keep learning. They search for the thing they don’t know and learn to rely on thoughtful, beautiful questions to gain information and arrive at conclusions. One of the best ways to make good decisions, a critical responsibility of leaders, is relying on asking good, insightful questions. Be the leader who approaches every moment of every day with a big (invisible) question mark in front of you. Ask. Learn. Gather data and decide. You will become a more valuable leader and what your ...

John Hinkle SHIFT Happens – Prepare for Your SHIFT and Get on the Path YOU Desire Any day is a good time to make a change, yet we routinely look at a New Year as the opportunity to reflect on what we want in life and to make plans for changes in the coming year. Is it time for you to consider a SHIFT in your life? You are a leader in a demanding position of responsibility.

Your Words Can Create a Highly Engaged Team – Steve talks with a CEO who achieved engagement levels of 99.3% after he became conscious of the words he was using

Krister Ungerboeck Your Words Can Create a Highly Engaged Team The words you choose are having a significant impact on the people you lead. Are you choosing words that will inspire others to follow you? Struggling leaders should examine their words, assess where they come from and how they may be putting a damper on the people who follow them. Just like everyone else, leaders default to the words of those who influenced them from a young age. The words we speak to others are often an echo of the words we are speaking to ourselves, and those words were initiated by our original leaders. When we grow up hearing negative words, we often speak negative words ourselves. Examine your words, determine where they come from and how you can select words that will inspire those around you. Become the leader whose words transform others to want to follow you.

Are You Valuing Dignity in the Workplace? – Steve talks with Dr. Donna Hicks, a leading expert on the subject of dignity

Dr. Donna Hicks Are You Valuing Dignity in the Workplace? As a leader, what is more important – dignity, respect or trust? Actually, that is a trick question. While respect and trust must be earned, dignity is inherent in every human being. It does not need to be earned. So the big question is, are you respecting the dignity of everyone in your organization? When leaders don’t treat others with dignity, their respect for you will be undermined. Every human being is vulnerable to having their dignity hurt, and dignity be violated when we try to ‘look good’ and ‘save face.’ We undermine respect when we don’t come clean and tell the truth. Dignity is important and it is important for leaders to understand their role in it. If you want to be the manager with mojo whose people feel valued, you owe it to yourself to listen to this podcast. Learn more about Dr. Hicks and the books she's written about dignity, including her newest,Leading with Dignity– How to Create a Culture that B...

Imagine the Possibilities: Less Contemplating, More Acting – Steve speaks with Richard Sheridan of Menlo Innovations about how to make work work.

Richard Sheridan Imagine the Possibilities: Less Contemplating, More Acting We all begin our careers eager to change the world, ready to bring all the amazing things we have to offer. And then we are hit with quality issues, blown budgets, and missed deadlines and realize this isn’t going like we imagined. Plus, we are ‘led’ by a management that has instituted a gazillion rules designed to reduce our screw-ups. Leaders are afraid we will make bad choices and don’t trust us. The mojo is sucked right out of the room. Leaders should be stoking the fires of creativity, imagination, energy, invention and integration, igniting the fire within each member of the team to come to work excited to offer their best. Where did we go wrong? Maybe you’ve forgotten what joy looks like. Steve chats with the CEO of Menlo Innovations, winner of the When Work Works ward for 11 straight years. You can connect with Richard Sheridan on Twitter and LinkedIn, and learn more about Menlo Innovations by c...

Dr. Kristen Sosulski Data Visualization is a Valuable Tool for Leaders Understanding financials is a critical responsibility of the manager and leader.

Sharon Sayler What Affect are You Having on the Response You are Getting? Do you understand what your body language is saying? While we often think of the eloquence of a great communicator, the best communicators are even more aware of what they don’t say, at least with words.
