Culture Leadership Charge – A Question of Character

Your character is showing!

Every interaction we have with others demonstrates our character, for better or worse. If we treat people kindly and act in service, our character is showing. If we demean, discount, or dismiss others, our character is showing!

In today’s episode of my Culture Leadership Charge video series, I make the case for strong service character. What our workplaces, families, and communities need – right now – is high moral and ethical quality of interactions from each of us.

My Culture Leadership Charge series features short (two-to-three-minute) videos that describe proven culture leadership and service leadership practices that boost engagement, service, and results across your work teams, departments, regions, and even your entire company.

Each episode’s “charge” is a challenge for everyone in your organization – not just leaders – to refine their behaviors and ensure everyone is treated respectfully at all times.

Culture Leadership Charge – Attract & Retain Talent

How can business leaders craft a workplace that attracts and retains talented, engaged team members? By making values – how people treat each other – as important as results.

By defining values in the form of tangible, observable, measurable behaviors, then modeling, coaching, and praising those behaviors, leaders can transform their workplace to one where everyone is treated with trust, respect, and dignity in every interaction.

In today’s episode of my Culture Leadership Charge video series, I share undeniable research about how frustrating many workplaces are now and outline how leaders can adapt their organization’s culture to meet the needs of today’s generations.

My Culture Leadership Charge series features short (two-to-three-minute) segments that describe proven culture leadership practices that boost engagement, service, and results across your work teams, departments, regions, and even your entire company.

Each episode’s “charge” is a challenge for everyone in your organization – not just leaders – to refine their behaviors and ensure everyone is treated respectfully at all times.

Culture Leadership Charge – Why Leaders Do What They Do

Why do leaders behave as they do? I believe that leaders’ plans, decisions, and actions are heavily influenced by three things: their social style or personality type, the culture in which they operate, and their role models (past and present).

Each of these three are powerful, yet leaders may not be completely aware of how those three influences drive their leadership behavior.

To increase our effectiveness, all of us (whether we’re formal leaders or informal leaders) must be constantly aware of our impact on others. Some of these influences might help us serve amazingly well at times and amazingly poorly at other times!

Effective leaders examine their daily “influencing” behaviors and quash those behaviors that dismiss, demean, or discount others – and embrace those behaviors that help them serve others, exceed shared goals, and live desired values.

In today’s episode of my Culture Leadership Charge video series, I discuss these three primary drivers of leader behavior and specify the one thing leaders must do to improve their service to others.

My Culture Leadership Charge series features short (two-to-three-minute) segments that describe proven culture leadership practices that boost engagement, service, and results across your work teams, departments, regions, and even your entire company.

Each episode’s “charge” is a challenge for everyone in your organization – not just leaders – to refine their behaviors and ensure everyone is treated respectfully at all times.

Culture Leadership Charge – Don’t Tolerate Bad Behaviors

Leaders must champion their desired culture, every day. To create and maintain a work environment where everyone is treated with trust, respect, and dignity in every interaction, leaders must model those behaviors as well as ensure others model those behaviors.

The problem in many organizations around the globe is that leaders pay attention only to results and profits. They don’t notice when people behave badly while pursuing results and profits.

Left to our own foibles, we humans don’t behave well as a species in the work place. We engage in politics and gossip. We withhold information so others don’t perform as well as we do. We celebrate our own traction while eroding the traction – and confidence – of others.

Those bad behaviors inhibit engagement, consistent performance, proactive problem solving, and serving customers well.

Those bad behaviors tear people down rather than building them UP. Bad behavior erodes positive relationships.

Great leaders don’t tolerate bad behavior.

In today’s episode of my Culture Leadership Charge video series, I share the importance of setting high standards for performance and for relationships – and I outline a proven approach for ensuring desired behaviors occur daily.

My Culture Leadership Charge series features short (two-to-three-minute) segments that describe proven culture leadership practices that boost engagement, service, and results across your work teams, departments, regions, and even your entire company.

Each episode’s “charge” is a challenge for everyone in your organization – not just leaders – to refine their behaviors and ensure everyone is treated respectfully at all times.

Culture Leadership Charge – Make Values as Important as Results

Do you pay attention to how your organization is operating as well as how it’s performing?

Most leaders focus exclusively on results. Whether the culture is harmonious or chaotic, leaders only “see” that which has meaning to them, which is typically revenues, product out the door, sales, etc. The problem with that approach is that culture drives everything that happens in your organization – for better or worse.

Managing results is a good thing. Generating revenues, delivering on promised results, and more helps you hire talented players, delight customers, and invest in the business for the future. And, managing and measuring results is exactly half the leader’s job.

The other half? Managing and measuring values and behaviors – the quality of workplace interactions every day.

In today’s episode of my Culture Leadership Charge video series, I share how focusing exclusively on results costs leaders time, energy, engagement, service, and results. And, I share how to fix it.

My Culture Leadership Charge series features short (two-to-three-minute) segments that describe proven culture leadership practices that boost engagement, service, and results across your work teams, departments, regions, and even your entire company.

Each episode’s “charge” is a challenge for everyone in your organization – not just leaders – to refine their behaviors and ensure everyone is treated respectfully at all times.
