Culture Leadership Charge – Listen with Your Eyes

I love watching people. At airport terminals, malls, restaurants, sporting events – people are deeply involved in being who they are and doing what they do. By watching, I’m “invited in” to their world, what they value, how they deal with difficulties or joy, etc.

At work, it’s the same. People are deeply involved in being who they are and doing what they do. Most leaders pay attention to results – but effective bosses pay greater attention to relationships, support, cooperation, teamwork, and kindness.

In today’s episode of my Culture Leadership Charge video series, I share former professional football player & head coach Herm Edwards‘ insights on effective coaches: they “listen with their eyes.” Edwards says that unless coaches are paying attention to which players are investing time and effort in the team’s success, they’ll make faulty assumptions and bad decisions.

Leaders make those same mistakes.

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 – The Right Culture Matters

img_0435I’m bold with leaders, telling them they’re leaving money on the table if their organizational culture isn’t based on trust, respect, and dignity.

My ideas are not always embraced with open arms! Leaders have a natural cynicism about culture. They’re used to dealing with performance facts and hard data. So, I share the facts and hard data about the benefits my culture clients have enjoyed.

In today’s episode of my Culture Leadership Charge video series, I share one client’s amazing results after following my proven culture refinement process. They enjoyed 40 percent increases in employee engagement AND customer service. Profits grew 35 percent!

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.

A special treat – In today’s episode, which was filmed in my music studio, you can see my ’82 Gibson Les Paul Custom guitar and ’74 Fender Precision bass guitar in the background.

Culture Leadership Charge – Don’t Leave Your Culture to Chance

img_0441aCulture drives everything that happens in your organization, for better or worse. Your organization might be a team, department, division, region, small business, government office, or huge multi-national company. It doesn’t matter what size or type of organization you work in – culture impacts what happens daily.

Most leaders don’t pay much attention to culture. They’ve never been asked to do that. They mostly don’t know how.

In today’s episode of my Culture Leadership Charge video series, I describe why leaving your work culture to chance isn’t a very good strategy. Our #GreatBosses didn’t do that – nor should you.

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 – The Weakest Link

img_0661aDoes your team or company have a “weak link” – a player out for themselves, unconcerned with common goals or shared values?

Teamwork and cooperation build stronger, sustainable relationships with customers than “out for themselves” lone wolves in your organization.

In today’s episode of my Culture Leadership Charge video series, I explain how costly it is to tolerate selfish, competitive players are in your team or company culture.

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.

Culture Leadership Charge – Be Present

img_0454aHow present are you with others in your life? If you’re typing something, watching something, doing something, etc. while interacting with someone, you’re not fully present.

When you’re not present, you’re sending a not-so-subtle message: “You’re not important. I don’t care about you – I care about me.”

In today’s episode of my Culture Leadership Charge video series, I explain how you can make people feel trusted, honored, and respected, in every interaction, by being present.

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.
