We’re taught to go to school, get a ‘good job,’ and to work hard.  There’s nothing wrong with any of that, and in fact, it can be good advice.  Sometimes, however, we find ourselves in jobs that, when we wake up in the morning, we feel we can’t go another day.  Overcome the horror of being stuck by creating rituals that support your life and career and allow you to pivot.  The quality of your life depends upon consciously selected habits, or ‘rituals.’  Select the rituals that support the life you love.  None of us is promised tomorrow, so make the most of today through supportive rituals and learn to pivot in your career and life. <br /> <br />  <br /> <br /> To learn more about Adam Markel and his work, you can visit here.  To start your pivot and download the Kickstart Guide, click here.<br /> <br />  <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Click here to check out our newest leadership development tool – LEAD – Leadership Education and Development <br /> <br />  <br /> <br />  <br /> <br />  <br /> <br />  <br /> <br />  <br /> <br /> Steve Caldwell is an executive mentor and coach to managers and leaders who desire to excel in their career and become the leader others want to follow.

In an age of transparency, customers can write and comment about us anonymously, both positively and negatively. Be willing to ask customers questions and be prepared for good and bad news. Appreciate your customers’ willingness to be straight with you. Unfortunately, less than 8% of leaders choose to design new futures and it’s time to consider priorities. Listen to what Lisa Nirell, author of The Mindful Marketer, has to say in this podcast.

Positive leaders get more out of their people and motivate them to discover their grit and be their best. Do you know what the #1 predictor of success is? Over talent, title, wealth or appearance, grit will get you to a successful finish line nearly every time. The positive leader has grit because positive leadership is serious, hard work that requires daily, focused determination. No Pollyanna, unicorns or rainbows here. Leaders and teams who lose their ‘Super Bowl,’ the ‘big one,’ don’t wallow in their loss, but they look forward to future victories. And while those future victories are sweet, the positive leader doesn’t consider them the ultimate victory. They also take that positivity to other areas of their life and focus on being great spouses, parents, siblings and friends. Do you consider yourself a positive individual, or are you allowing negativity to get the upper hand? Don’t beat yourself up over negativity and be diligent in putting it behind you and looking for the positive.

Does it mesh with your personal purpose and why? When a business has clarity, employees are more engaged and productive. When you are personally clear, your work offers more meaning and you do it for more than a paycheck. Clarity about a business’s purpose can provide the fuel and impetus for customers and other stakeholders to support you. Loyalty increases and so do referrals.

Make the choice of either putting the work in on the front end of hiring, or on the back end of constant follow up and getting results. If you are a leader willing to be challenged by members of the team, you need to fill the hiring pipeline with rockstars. When leaders hire rockstars, they are hiring people who love to be challenged, and consequently they may challenge you. Rockstar leaders don’t shy away from being shaken out of their comfort zone. They welcome the new ideas, creative thoughts and work an “A” player brings. Ping pong tables and Friday cookouts aren’t inspiring or motivational to a rockstar. Just give them a good challenge. There is no question that an assortment of talent is required to be successful, yet when the leader focuses on having a pipeline of “A” players, they will have a resource of rockstars ready to fill a key slot when the opening occurs.

That is why more than 50% of leaders fail within the first 18 months. If you are going to lead, you are going to suffer. That is the reality. The good news is that leaders can learn four recurring patterns that research shows, when executed well, are indicators of leadership success. It is cruel to put a person in a leadership position and demand success when the characteristics of excellence haven’t been developed over years. Every level of development should include a focus on context, breadth, connections and choice so that future leaders are skilled in all of them before their leadership opportunity arises.

Happy people are more productive because their work feeds their soul, not just the pocketbook. However, we’ve all meant unhappy people in the workplace who blame their unhappiness upon the boss or others and whose negativity can easily bring others around them down. Leaders should understand their role in creating a happy team, and it begins with curiosity. Be curious about what motivates each team member. Be curious of what they want to achieve in work. Your curiosity makes team members feel like you care, and from that caring you will develop a happy team who will move mountains. Gain the reputation of being the manager everyone wants to work for. Be happy and make those around you happy, too.   Connect with Dr. McKee on Facebook and Twitter, and visit her website to learn more about her work and newest book, How to Be Happy at Work.  You can check out her book on Amazon by clicking here.   Looking for a location for your next business conference, to spend time with someone you love, or to experience awesome golf?  Check out The Coeur d'Alene Resort in Coeur d'Alene, ID.  The staff and service are spectacular, and you will experience a game of golf like few others.  You will also get to play on the world's only floating green.  The Resort, golf, and the Coeur d'Alene area are beautiful venues to visit again and again.         Click here to check out our newest leadership development tool – LEAD – Leadership Education and Development                 Steve Caldwell is an executive mentor and coach to managers and leaders who desire to excel in their career and become the leader others want to follow.

After all, there is a certain expectation of us, right? Maybe that is the problem. What we expect they expect really isn’t what they are expecting at all, yet we don’t know how to uncover what that is. Wow, what a conundrum! Be willing to pause from time to time while you save ‘white space’ between the busyness. Slow down to reflect on your mindset, and practice self-assessment and reflection. Consider the idea, “What do I really want as a leader.” Find the time to reflect, pause and observe your reaction and begin becoming those things you desire. Libby Wagner is a poet, author and speaker who is one of the only former poetry professors who is warmly invited into the boardroom. In this podcast, she shares how leaders who may be searching for their own voice can give thought to their leadership presence and how they are being courageous, noticing, saying the unsayable and taking risk.

It’s a discussion of how championship sports teams became champions due to the efforts of an ‘unsung hero,’ that individual who (somewhat) quietly goes about their business while at the same time being the barometer of performance that everyone on the team wants to live up to. How do teams become great? It may not be from the obvious traits we tend to think of – the most charismatic leader/coach who is a great motivator and communicator. In fact, it could be just the opposite – that quiet person who is (dare we say) rather dull and boring. In his book The Captain Class: The Hidden Force That Creates the World's Greatest Teams, Sam Walker happened upon the surprising insight that what we thought as obvious simply wasn’t. The greatest teams in sports history were not great because of charisma, motivation or inspirational communication. There was always that ‘odd duck’ who stayed below the radar yet had an internal compass that wouldn’t allow themselves or their team mates to quit or perform at any level less than their absolute best.

If it’s the only thing, you’re doing the wrong thing. When finances are the primary driver of an organization everyone suffers, because over the long term the best you will achieve is mediocrity. Once you translate your organization’s focus into its noble purpose, employees begin to find an excitement and drive in what they are doing. It is simple to provide good customer service, but it’s not easy to figure out how to treat your customers in amazing ways that keep them loyal, dedicated and coming back. Finding your noble purpose provides employees the impetus to care about the impact they are having on customers. They want to stand out. They want to be remarkable. On the other hand, you could always have cross-selling as an integral part of your strategy, when in fact understanding the needs of your customers should have the result of cross selling.

If it’s the only thing, you’re doing the wrong thing. When finances are the primary driver of an organization everyone suffers, because over the long term the best you will achieve is mediocrity. Once you translate your organization’s focus into its noble purpose, employees begin to find an excitement and drive in what they are doing. It is simple to provide good customer service, but it’s not easy to figure out how to treat your customers in amazing ways that keep them loyal, dedicated and coming back. Finding your noble purpose provides employees the impetus to care about the impact they are having on customers. They want to stand out. They want to be remarkable. On the other hand, you could always have cross-selling as an integral part of your strategy, when in fact understanding the needs of your customers should have the result of cross selling. Understand the difference? Are you sure you’re as ‘customer centric’ as you keep professing?

While there are pluses and minuses to using virtual employees, there is a way to do it successfully and to build a multi-million-dollar organization at the same time. Nitin Chhoda came to the United States penniless and worked hard to scratch out a living delivering pizza. Until he could afford an apartment with five other guys, he slept in his car. He didn’t have appropriate winter clothing for harsh winters. Yet he was a hustler, got an education and became a physical therapist. He now owns and runs several multi-million dollar companies with over 30 remote employees worldwide. This isn’t the story of an immigrant who achieved success, although Nitin did.

They recognize that we each bring a different view of the world to work because of varied life experiences. As you are leading a team, how are you connecting to what interests each team member? Are you clear about what motivates each one to do and be their best? When leaders connect with people and their motivations they are tapping into the reasons why those individuals want to excel. Help them to find the joy they desire and the success they are working toward by connecting to what they are motivated by.

Over talent, title, wealth or appearance, grit will get you to a successful finish line nearly every time. The positive leader has grit because positive leadership is serious, hard work that requires a daily, focused determination. No Pollyanna, unicorns or rainbows here. Positive leaders have more success than negative leaders, and negativity will guarantee the lack of it. Leaders and teams who lose their ‘Super Bowl,’ the ‘big one,’ don’t wallow in their loss, but they look forward to future victories. And while those future victories are sweet, the positive leader doesn’t consider them the ultimate victory. They also take that positivity to other areas of their life and focus on being great spouses, parents, siblings and friends. Do you consider yourself a positive individual, or are you allowing negativity to get the upper hand? Don’t beat yourself up over negativity and be diligent in putting it behind you and looking for the positive. Uncover the grit that is essential to successful, positive leaders and you will have uncovered the #1 predictor of your success.   Learn more about Jon Gordon's new book, The Power of Positive Leadership, or connect with him on Twitter and Instagram by clicking here.

Over talent, title, wealth or appearance, grit will get you to a successful finish line nearly every time. The positive leader has grit because positive leadership is serious, hard work that requires a daily, focused determination. No Pollyanna, unicorns or rainbows here. Positive leaders have more success than negative leaders, and negativity will guarantee the lack of it. Leaders and teams who lose their ‘Super Bowl,’ the ‘big one,’ don’t wallow in their loss, but they look forward to future victories. And while those future victories are sweet, the positive leader doesn’t consider them the ultimate victory. They also take that positivity to other areas of their life and focus on being great spouses, parents, siblings and friends. Do you consider yourself a positive individual, or are you allowing negativity to get the upper hand? Don’t beat yourself up over negativity and be diligent in putting it behind you and looking for the positive. Uncover the grit that is essential to successful, positive leaders and you will have uncovered the #1 predictor of your success.<br /> <br />  <br /> <br /> Learn more about Jon Gordon's new book, The Power of Positive Leadership, or connect with him on Twitter and Instagram by clicking here.<br /> <br /> To go directly to The Power of Positive Leadership, click the book link.<br /> <br />  <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Click here to check out our newest leadership development tool – LEAD – Leadership Education and Development<br /> <br />  <br /> <br />  <br /> <br />  <br /> <br />  <br /> <br />  <br /> <br />  <br /> <br /> Steve Caldwell is an executive mentor and coach to managers and leaders who desire to excel in their career and become the leader others want to follow.

That can be daunting and challenging when trying to mesh the differing values, beliefs and behaviors of each generation. While older workers seem comfortable with a set start/stop time, younger workers may want to mosey in at 10:00 after having worked into the wee hours of the morning. Both approaches can be successful with flexibility in the workplace and accountability for the job at hand. How can common ground and viable teamwork occur? Leaders who are willing and able to develop a culture of trust and transparency allowing team members to bond and be themselves is a good place to start. Having clarity around the organization’s purpose, mission and vision are also critical so that every worker can find a connection to their personal motivations and the job they perform.

But is 90 or 100 days enough time to evaluate someone’s performance? Being new in a position does not signify immediate success or a turnaround. Depending on the position, the complexity of change and preparing to turn a ship around can take time. In fact, so often I see where a business can’t even define what success in each position looks like. Employees aren’t provided specific and direct criteria of performance levels and standards. Rather than setting short-term windows to determine success or failure, as a leader you should be setting people up for success from the start.

Think again – it probably already has. By now we all know of the horrific actions toward a customer to accommodate United’s own employees. The fact that the first press release expressed nothing being out of line trying to accommodate their own people, provides an obvious clue as to the stature of customers in that organization. Yet, how often are your employees’ priorities placed in front of your customers, and likely with a good excuse as to why? While United deserves to have all fingers pointing at them, we all should make sure that we aren’t looking in the mirror and having those fingers pointing right back at ourselves.

Think again – it probably already has. By now we all know of the horrific actions toward a customer to accommodate United’s own employees. The fact that the first press release expressed nothing being out of line trying to accommodate their own people, provides an obvious clue as to the stature of customers in that organization. Yet, how often are your employees’ priorities placed in front of your customers, and likely with a good excuse as to why? While United deserves to have all fingers pointing at them, we all should make sure that we aren’t looking in the mirror and having those fingers pointing right back at ourselves. Consider that when you listen to this podcast about the forgotten customer.<br /> <br />  <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Click here to check out our newest leadership development tool – LEAD – Leadership Education and Development <br /> <br />  <br /> <br />  <br /> <br />  <br /> <br />  <br /> <br />  <br /> <br />  <br /> <br />  <br /> <br /> Steve Caldwell is an executive mentor and coach to managers and leaders who desire to excel in their career and become the leader others want to follow.

Time goes largely unmanaged in business. So are talent and energy. Would you allow an employee to walk off with a big piece of equipment? Then why are you allowing them to steal the time of team members and fellow employees? The average front-line supervisor spends 23 hours/week in meetings of 4 people or more and 8 hours sending/responding to email. After all of that largely wasted time, research shows there are only 6.5 hours to do the work, and that is a big contributor to why managers are taking work home in the evenings and on weekends. Engaged employees are 25% more productive, yet inspired employees are 125% more productive! Inspired leaders in a culture of responsibility and accountability produce more.

For most people, money as a long-term motivator comes up short. It is quite common for individuals to get promoted into management because they are excellent individual contributors. That’s when they realize there are financial benefits from being a successful leader. However, statistics show that 52% of those people will fail. Why? Their focus is in the wrong place. The money motivator only goes so far as the challenges of leadership start tugging and pulling. It can be difficult to lead others, and some become so frustrated they resort to micro-managing or ordering rather than leading. Watch out! Rather than push your way to success, a focus on increasing your management and leadership skills is likely the route to an ever-increasing paycheck. If you don’t seek the training needed, you may be promoted to your level of incompetence and become one of those statistics.

Although many people cringe at the word ‘planning,’ if you consider it as preparing for your future, you might want to think about how you have equipped yourself and protected your dreams.  By placing deliberate thought on what you’d like to achieve, you determine a specific end goal which allows you to take detailed steps.  It also allows you to take a step back and imagine if that dream were even bigger.  What could you do IF……    Be willing to allow dreams to be challenged, be receptive to new ideas, and you may find multiple paths to the same desired (or BIGGER) dream.    Don’t look back with an ‘I could have’ or ‘I should have,‘ take the time to think about your future now and begin moving forward with excitement.  The ideas in this podcast are a good place to start.<br /> <br />  <br /> <br /> Learn more about Shawn's speaking opportunities at www.RShawnMcBridelive.com   You can also learn more about how he helps successful businesses by visiting www.McBrideForBusiness.com.<br /> <br />  <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Click here to check out our newest leadership development tool – LEAD – Leadership Education and Development<br /> <br />  <br /> <br />  <br /> <br />  <br /> <br />  <br /> <br />  <br /> <br />  <br /> <br /> Steve Caldwell is an executive mentor and coach to managers and leaders who desire to excel in their career and become the leader others want to follow.

The lack of clarity can be a serious stumbling block to successful leadership. Being self-aware and having clarity about one’s strengths and weaknesses is critical to the authentic leader. How many truly good leaders do you know who are indecisive, poor communicators and unable to structure and manage a team? I say that would be – NONE. Great leaders understand who they are, have clarity about their weaknesses and know where they are going.

How you frame those problems can have much to do with the solution arrived at. Mark Twain once said, “What gets us into trouble is not what we don’t know, it’s what we know for sure that just ain’t so.” Remaining convinced that our way is the right way when in fact we might not know what we don’t know can be the stumbling block to uncovering solutions. The ‘right thing’ often depends on the situation and who is looking at it. As a strategic leader, you will be required to choose when uncertain, and to decide where to focus as well as where NOT to.

In the pursuit of promotions, success and wealth it is easy to get caught up in the cycle of achievement. At times, you may even feel like Gordon Gekko, “Greed is Good!” But that roller coaster usually loses its appeal when we realize what is suffering along the way. Achievement is good and admirable, yet when you find yourself chasing your tail, arriving home late just to go to bed and get up and do it all over again, it’s time to reevaluate. There is nothing wrong in pursuing a career and desiring wealth, but that pursuit alone may leave you feeling depleted and empty. It may be time for you to consider a Grow, Get and Give lifestyle.

We don’t want to stick out and appear ‘weird.’ The problem is that excellence never follows the crowd and mediocrity is what’s normal. That’s what the crowd pursues. Pursuing excellence means that we will stick out and be made to feel weird. But don’t let that stop you! The world needs people of excellence who are willing to stick out and be counted. Remember that guy you saw on headline news last night, the one who hasn’t done anything yet? Only the people who are willing to do something and who are willing to stick out are the ones who will win in a world of mediocrity.

We don’t want to stick out and appear ‘weird.’ The problem is that excellence never follows the crowd and mediocrity is what’s normal. That’s what the crowd pursues. Pursuing excellence means that we will stick out and be made to feel weird. But don’t let that stop you! The world needs people of excellence who are willing to stick out and be counted. Remember that guy you saw on headline news last night, the one who hasn’t done anything yet? Only the people who are willing to do something and who are willing to stick out are the ones who will win in a world of mediocrity.

It is a fact of life that many children don’t grow up in supportive and nurturing families. They may have suffered mental or physical abuse, and those experiences can cloud their approach to the future. It is incumbent upon leaders to understand the role they can play in helping a young person turn their life around. If that dysfunctional young person becomes a young adult on your team, it is equally important to make attempts to understand their past and help them move forward toward a successful and thriving future.  Every one of us wants to be successful, no matter how unlikely the possibility of that success may appear to others.

Today’s business climate often finds a maniacal focus on the bottom line. Managers are being pushed to meet the numbers, and consequently they are pushing their teams. However, before we push and force our people to produce results, as leaders we should be sharing our vision, providing meaning to their jobs and leading them to help customers in our unique way. People are happy to work hard and produce results when they know they are working with a leader of integrity, truth and credibility. Leaders need to understand that the formal authority they have been given is the weakest form available. When they move to exercise their moral authority, they find people who are choosing to follow them because they offer a bigger vision and deeper meaning to the job. You can be the leader who supports others in seeing who they can be and what you can be together.
