    Humanity Works Better: Five Practices to Lead with Awareness, Choice, and the Courage to Change

    38:27

    Ready to inject a little more humanity into your workplace? To progress toward a workplace filled with “better humans,” guests Debbie Cohen and Kate Roeske Zummer say it’s all about becoming conscious of what no longer serves you and having the courage to try something different. In this episode of the Transform Your Workplace podcast, the authors of Humanity Works Better: Five Practices to Lead with Awareness, Choice, and the Courage to Change expose the systemic roadblocks that hinder humanity in the workplace and provide practical strategies for becoming “better humans.” TAKEAWAYS   In a culture of humanity, employees need to feel like they matter and that they are part of something big, exciting, and fulfilling. When you start to change, the people around you will start to change; if something isn't right in your workforce, you can start choosing to show up differently. In the book, Debbie and Kate walk readers through five different practices that start with creating safety, working together, claiming value, owning your impact, and daring not to know. If leaders have the guts to say that they don't know what to do, it actually incites and engages people to step forward because they want to contribute to solving problems. You learn and grow from a place of discomfort, and part of that is pausing and seeking to understand what really matters. GUEST AT A GLANCE Debbie is a thought leader and expert in leadership and management education. With twenty years of experience in coaching and leadership development, Kate is passionate about helping others reach their full potential in the workplace. Both women are dedicated to seeing companies place increased emphasis on the culture of humanity.

    The Economy of Kindness with Linda Cohen

    30:47

    A hard-hitting pandemic spurred an initial, unexpected rise in kindness. But before long, we settled back into our old ways. Could your business use a lesson in ramping up kindness? In this episode of the Transform Your Workplace podcast, Linda Cohen — expert, author, and speaker — brings kindness back to the forefront of the workplace conversation. Listen in as Linda Cohen shares touching stories and drives home the idea that kindness affects everyone and everything it touches, even a business’s bottom line. TAKEAWAYS If a business’s reputation is affected by unkindness, it inevitably affects the bottom line. Creating a culture of kindness is an opportunity for you and your organization to think about what would elevate your level of inclusivity. When asked what holds them back from being kind, people tend to answer the same way: stress, fatigue, and time. Communication from leadership needs to be supportive and open so that employees feel encouraged to share their thoughts and concerns. GUEST AT A GLANCE We welcome Linda Cohen back to the podcast. Nationally recognized “kindness expert,” speaker, and consultant, Linda is well-versed in how to incorporate kindness into workplace culture. Author of two books, Linda is passionate about seeing leaders and employees walk in kindness, ultimately resulting in business success.  A QUICK GLIMPSE INTO OUR PODCAST 🔊 Podcast: Transform Your Workplace, sponsored by Xenium HR 🎙️ Host: Brandon Laws 📋 In his own words: “The Transform Your Workplace podcast is your go-to source for the latest workplace trends, big ideas, and time-tested methods straight from the mouths of industry experts and respected thought-leaders.” Contact Brandon and Xenium HR:  Email Brandon.Laws@xeniumhr.com or connect on LinkedIn, Twitter, or Instagram.

    Office, Remote, or Hybrid: The Return to Work with Gleb Tsipursky

    35:10

    Returning to the Office and Leading Hybrid and Remote Teams: A Manual on Benchmarking to Best Practices for Competitive Advantage It’s time to head back to work. Or… is it? Dive into the in-person vs. remote vs. hybrid discussion with our guest, Gleb Tsipursky, author of Returning to the Office and Leading Hybrid and Remote Teams. In this episode, he and host Brandon Laws talk about how executives can make strategic, sustainable decisions for the good of their employees and, ultimately, the future of their companies.  TAKEAWAYS When deciding on the right return-to-the-office strategy, the key is a willingness to be flexible. Team leaders must keep in mind that the office environment is best-suited for collaboration and individual assignments can be completed by employees remotely.  Companies that are currently forcing their employees back to the workplace place themselves at a competitive disadvantage. The pandemic has taught employees that time is worth somewhat more than money. We tend to feel that other people will share the same opinions that we do, so we don't ask them about their opinions. GUEST AT A GLANCE Gleb Tsipursky is a disaster avoidance expert — a consultant, coach, and trainer for the forward-thinking executive who wishes to “future-proof” their business. With over 20 years of experience and a Ph.D. from Chapel Hill and an M.A. from Harvard, Gleb is a published author and thought leader in strategic planning and leadership.

    The Gap: Perspectives on Employee Retention with Clint Pulver

    35:02

    SHOW NOTES   What are your employees really thinking when it comes to their workplace? Are they ready to jump ship or are they bought in? Clint Pulver, also known as The Undercover Millennial, is all about exposing the gap in perception between executives and their employees. His five years of undercover experience in 181 organizations resulted in his new book, I Love It Here: How Great Leaders Create Organizations That People Never Want to Leave. In this episode of the Transform Your Workplace podcast, Clint offers practical advice for managers who want to create a work environment that no employee will want to leave. TAKEAWAYS   Employee needs are always changing, so managers must be willing to evolve if they want to keep top talent. There is a direct correlation between management and employee attrition rate. All mentor managers possess these five characteristics: Confidence, Credibility, Competence, Candor, and Caring.  Many employers feel like they know what their employees think and feel, but they've never taken the time to individually ask people and create an environment where people could be heard. Passion, purpose, and the ability to provide are critical contributors to whether an employee loves his or her job.
