Kudos's curator insight, April 4, 2014 1:48 PM

Some great advice. Simple rules to follow. I would print this out and hang it on your wall and bring it out before every group meeting to refresh what you need to cover.

 

That brings up another key point - when was the last time you had a team meeting. We all think we have meetings all the time but the truth is we do not have as many as we think we do or should. 

 

Weekly, Bi-weekly, Monthly - what is the right frequency? Weekly is a good place to start but maybe you switch up the main purpose of the team meetings and make them mandatory.

 

We do monthly Team Talks - that allows everyone to communicate what is happening in their group / department and ask questions. Item #8 - Check.

 

We also do Lunch and Learns - that allows one person or a group /department to show off what they are thinking about or working on. Goo way to get the innovation ideas flowing - One more for #8 - double check.

 

Totally agree with doing a great job with on boarding - make a persons first day a great day. This is is a whole blog post on it's own. I also like sending good people off with some fanfare and a thank you. They are ambassadors for your company  thank you, good luck and farewell event to highlighting in a bigger meeting is a very good idea. #9 - Check, check.

 

The rest of the items - are leadership touch points to that should be communicated as often as possible - such as the events listed above. In fact, we believe that these communication should be free flowing and  a product like Kudos is designed  to help companies do that with a big dose of #7. Show your appreciation often and say thanks to people every week.  

 

I call it leading out loud and doing it in structured ways will make people feel more connected to the company and one another. Transparency and honesty is a good thing - Your team  can handle the truth so keep them in the loop :)

 

If you ever wondered what those companies you admire so much do - that is pretty well it.  

 

Cheers,

 

T

7 Reasons the Best Leaders Treat Their Employees Like Customers

If you don't, you could be stunting your own growth.


Via Chad Manske
Cruise Line Class's insight:

I could not agree more with this approach. 


I also like to challenge my team to this approach ... "Pretend as though your employees have contracted you for the year.  Ask yourself truthfully, would they re-hire you once the year is up?  Did you take care of them in a way that they would be afraid to contract another leader or department because no one else would take care of them and add value as you would?


That is the mind set that I like to challenge myself to uphold, because our employees are our internal customers. 

What do you think?

Cruise Line Class's insight:

Super infographic for improving communication within an organization.  I know when you go through the infographic you will probably say... I already know that.

 

While you may not be in the position to change the way your entire organization communicates, involves, and engages wtih everyone, you do have control over how you communicate with your team.

 

So, after you go through the infographic and article ask yourself  What should I do?  What do I do? how do I know that effective communicate is really happening?

 

Moving forward, what will I do differently?  Until next time.. .PS - Be on Brand & Live on Purpose!

Cruise Line Class's insight:

Excellent interview Christina Lattimer!

 

There are so many gold nuggets for CEOs, boards, and leaders alike.

 

For me CEOs like Sir Richard Branson or like Zappo's CEO Tony Hsieh are rare.  They seem to possess the power to reject immediate gratification for what is best for the company's long-term growth. 

 

They know that strategy should not be a secret known by only senior leaders.  People ... are their organization's competitive advantage, and they nurture, inspire, and invest in them.

5 Ways to Get a Confidence Boost | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it
Whatever you're about to do, it's incredibly important--and you're incredibly nervous. Here's how to get a quick shot of confidence.
Cruise Line Class's insight:

Great advice in this article!  No matter how confident you are, you will most definitely be faced with situations that will stretch you out of your comfort zone.  Preparation is king to building confidence when coming face to face with new situations and challenges.

 

I particularly agree with:

- Anticipating objections

- Being prepared to respond

-Productively use up the excess fuel you have


Another easy tip we share is to avoid drinking caffeine, which artifically amplifies emotions.

Successful #Leaders don't do these things | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it
Cruise Line Class's insight:

1.  They don't do the bare minimum; have you ever heard that saying, “The way you do anything is the way you do everything? “  Well, this especially hold true here…they give every task their all and always go way beyond. 

2.  They don't waste time; they work hard to stay on course.  They know how easy it is to get distracted, yet they are disciplined in this area.  They focus their time and energy on what matters most....not what matters least.

3.  They don’t focus on problems – they focus on solutions.  They don't lose sleep or complain about what they can't do.  They shift their energy and resources on what is within their control.

4.  They don't think they can do it alone; the most confident leaders are humble, and seek out advice, assistance, and expertise.  It’s not about them; it’s about their teams, and accomplishing the goals!

5.  They don't think that they always know best; the most confident leaders are curious to learn.  They listen to the ideas of others.  They listen to understand.

6.  They don’t take things personal and let their ego get in the way of achieving goals and building relationships. 

7.  They don’t judge or criticize others.  They stay humble, curious, and open to learn and understand.

 

What else do you think should be on the list?  Would love to hear from you.

The Iceberg That Sinks Organizational #Change #Leadership

The Iceberg That Sinks Organizational #Change #Leadership | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it

Some aspects of organizational culture are visible on the surface, like the tip of an iceberg, while others are implicit and submerged within the organization. Because these ingrained assumptions are tacit and below the surface, they are not easy to see or deal with, although they affect everything the organization does.


Via The Learning Factor
Cruise Line Class's insight:

Insightful article!

 

As an HR Professional I have been on all sides of change:  As the person leading change initiatives inside the organization, as an external consultant partnering with senior leaders to execute change, and as the recipient of change inside the organization.

 

What I know to be true is this:  Long are the days when we would say to ourselves..."once this change initiative is complete, things will go back to normal."  The reality is we are living in a VUCA environment. (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous)  Change is the new normal, and we as leaders are tasked with communicating effectively and connecting the dots for our organization.

 

It was always important for the entire team to understand where we are now, where we want to be, and what we as an organization need to do to get there.  Once we confirmed our shared goals & confirmed roles, it was important that everyone understood the why -- the business reasons for the change and we all had the same picture of what success looked like with KPIs.

 

I would ask 3 quesions to adjust my change lens before planning or communications began:

In order for this change to be effective...

1.  What do we as leaders need to know?

2.  What do we need to do?

3.  How do we need to be?

 

Then repeat these 3 questions for our staff?

1.  What does our staff need to know? Is there anything that they need to learn, unlearn, or re-learn? Why should they care?

2.  What are we asking our staff to do as a result of this change?

3.  How do we want our staff to be?

 

Hope this article, and my humble opinion added value to you as a leader. 

---If you have any questions, comments, or best practices about culture, change, or leadership…I am on it!  My goal is to share thoughts, tools, and inspiration to help you leverage your strengths, and achieve your goals!  Walt Disney said, "Whatever we have accomplished has been because other people have helped  us."  So don't be afraid to ask for help...that is what I am here for!

donhornsby's curator insight, November 10, 2014 8:43 AM

There are perhaps many good questions leaders ask of their teammates each and every day. The starter list above could easily be replaced with ten others. These ten, however, represent the ten that have served me well over the last eighteen years as a senior leader. They solicit open conversation, deter quick “yes/no” responses, and maintain meaningful communication channels with the team. 

John Michel's curator insight, November 10, 2014 12:54 PM

The ability to ask great questions is a critically important skill for leaders. Questions determine the answer, and the course of a conversation. The moment a question is asked, the entire course of events can change. A well worded question is truly THAT powerful.
