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.

    Overcoming Obstacles and Faciltating Breakthrough with Adam Kahane

    21:09

    Conflict, obstacles, differences. In the working world, leaders and their teams face no shortage of challenges. Fortunately, according to Adam Kahane, facilitating effective collaboration is possible. If you and your team find yourself running into dead-ends when it comes to working together, listen in and learn about a fresh approach for removing the obstacles that hinder forward progression. TAKEAWAYS Leaders of all types — managers, team members, coaches, consultants, and more — can benefit from learning how to facilitate breakthrough. Both vertical and horizontal facilitation miss the mark when it comes to facilitating effective collaboration. Like inhaling and exhaling, both vertical and horizontal facilitation must be used alternately.  Effective facilitation is about removing obstacles to equitable connection and contribution. GUEST AT A GLANCE Adam Kahane is a Director of Reos Partners, passionate process facilitator, and author of Facilitating Breakthrough: How to Remove Obstacles, Bridge Differences, and Move Forward Together. With extensive experience working in over fifty countries, Adam helps leaders of all kinds address their challenges head-on.

    Manage to Engage Your Team with Pamela Hackett

    24:54

    Let’s face it. Engagement is critical to productivity. But in the post-pandemic workplace, are managers too busy fighting fires to focus on keeping employees engaged? In this episode of the Transform Your Workplace podcast, Brandon Laws sits down with Pamela Hackett, author of Manage to Engage: How Great Managers Create Remarkable Results, to discuss the ins and outs of employee engagement. Whether the team is working in the office, from home, or a combination of the two, learn how managers can better motivate and connect with their teams. TAKEAWAYS The pandemic taught us about the under-engaged, disengaged, and those resistant to change. The direct boss has the greatest impact on employee engagement. To engage, managers must be intentional about connecting with employees on a routine basis. Managers must seek to engender confidence in their teams which ultimately leads to a greater sense of purpose and engagement. GUEST AT A GLANCE Pamela Hackett is the CEO of Proudfoot, an international operations consulting firm having successfully coached over one million leaders. With expertise in driving change in operating models, results, and culture, Pamela is passionate about seeing leaders connect meaningfully with their teams to create a productive and engaging work environment.

Listen in on Brandon Laws’ discussion with Greg as they delve into his 2013 book, Flip the Pyramid: How Any Organization Can Create a Workforce That is Engaged, Aligned, Empowered, and On Fire, and get some insight on building a framework for company stability and success. TAKEAWAYS   There are proven business strategies and tactics available for those who seek them, so there is no need for original thinking to build an outlined organization that can scale. When you have a growth-oriented company, you need employees who bring their left brain and their right brain to work every single day.  The senior leadership team is responsible for setting three to five objective, measurable goals that the whole company can understand and work toward. Communication of company goals is critical to success. Employees should see them everywhere and discuss them daily. GUEST AT A GLANCE Greg Slamowitz is a lawyer-turned-entrepreneur and the Co-Founder of Ambrose Employer Group, a highly-esteemed professional employer organization.

    31:41

    Is happiness fleeting? Is it possible to find fulfillment? According to guest Beverly Jones, getting “unstuck” is as simple as taking small steps toward your happiness goals. Listen as Brandon Laws and Beverly Jones discuss some simple strategies from her new book, 50 Ways to Get Unstuck, and start on the path to happiness and fulfillment today. TAKEAWAYS   The way we treat people matters, and it can have lasting effects on their career and their future as a whole. Serving a purpose and connecting with others in the workplace contributes to employees’ happiness. If we're disconnected from people, it's hard to be happy at work or anywhere else. When you experience gratitude, it’s hard to be anxious at the same time. Taking a step, no matter how small, is a catalyst for motivation. GUEST AT A GLANCE Beverly Jones — coach, consultant, and speaker — is also the author of Find Your Happy at Work: 50 Ways to Get Unstuck, Move Past Boredom, and Discover Fulfillment.

    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 [email protected] 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.
