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 – 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.

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.

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 45 percent increases in employee engagement AND customer service. Profits grew 35 percent! Learn more in this clip.

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.
