Praise for Podcasters

How do you select and use podcasts? I had the pleasure to connect and exchange with some great podcasters this year, and here’s well-deserved praise for them!

Who Decides from Santa’s Chair?

An executive team discovered that they were spending too much time in Santa’s chair, instead of letting the right key players in the business take the chair and make the call. How about in your organization? Are decisions being made at the right level in the company or are too few people holding onto Santa’s chair?

How about a good book to light your fire?

Looking for a meaningful book to light your fire? Here are some suggestions from my side. All four are a great read and led to meaningful reflection for me. Perhaps this will inspire your holiday giving or be a new resource for you to explore over the holidays.

Embrace Your Pessimism

Pop culture bombards us with “the glass is half full” messages and scolds those that refer to anything that resembles “a half empty glass”. Yet we owe our existence, in part, to the survival strategies that kick in when we view things pessimistically. How do you encourage both pessimistic and optimistic conversations in your team?

Winners Never Quit and Quitters Never Win

Many people are trying to manage too much, afraid to let go or simply say no. Instead of managing a few things well, they struggle and stress with many things, none which is done exceptionally well. This fear of letting go can infect people, teams, and entire organizations. Here’s how to let go of what’s holding you and your team back so you can focus on what really matters.

Engulfed in Escalations?

Are you engulfed by escalations because others ask you how do things or to take on uncomfortable tasks instead of developing their own ideas and actions? Here are three ways to ensure that you aren’t on the receiving end of every escalation that comes your way.

Hiding Your Development?

None of us are perfect. When we pretend to be perfect, hide our imperfections, and discourage people from giving us feedback and ideas to improve, we lose followers and our ability to influence others.
