    Navigating Wicked Problems: Compartmentalization is key

    Navigating Wicked Problems: Compartmentalization is key

    Episode #303 // We know that problem solving is a critical part of leadership life — we spend a lot of time on any given day solving our own problems, and helping our people to solve theirs.
     
    As you’ve no doubt learned, though, there are problems and there are… problems. It’s important to know how to leverage good problem solving techniques. But it’s equally important to manage your head space so that your biggest leadership problems don’t take over your whole life.
     
    Wicked problems don’t come along every day but, when they do, they can totally dominate your emotional and psychological reactions to virtually everything.
     
    Being able to compartmentalize will help you to keep things in perspective. You can’t let your biggest leadership problems consume you to the point where they detract from your ability to function properly, and enjoy the other aspects of your life.
     
    In this episode, I explore the concept of wicked problems. I give a detailed example of the most wicked problem I faced as a CEO, and I finish with an extensive range of advice for compartmentalizing, so that you can cope with whatever problems come your way.

    Moment #73: Leading People To Do the Sh!t Work

    Moment #73: Leading People To Do the Sh!t Work

    Moment #73 // I talk a lot about high performance. But what about the people who find themselves doing relatively mundane, repetitive, or low-skilled jobs?
    We tend to imagine occupations like cleaners, fruit pickers, and production line workers when we think about mundane jobs. But many people in your team could also be doing some mind-numbing work, to fulfill the less-glamorous requirements of their role.
    In this Moment, I give you my six hot tips for leading people to do the sh!t jobs.
    If you want to take a deeper dive into how you can motivate your people to excel in the mundane and uninteresting, have a listen to Ep.151: Motivating Process Workers.

    7 Big Culture Killers: Don’t let mediocrity destroy performance

    7 Big Culture Killers: Don’t let mediocrity destroy performance

    Episode #302 // One of our dedicated listeners, Jonathan, observed that a number of culture killers can be described by words that end with the suffix, “-ism”. He rattled off a couple to get me started — nepotism, narcissism, and favoritism.
    He suggested that I should create a podcast episode based on these, and other “-isms” that negatively impact team culture and productivity, so I’ve come up with my list of seven big culture killers.
    This episode’s pretty straightforward — I explain each term, and the nuances of the impact it has on team culture, which is antithetical to high performance. 
    Any conscious effort you put into creating a constructive, high-performance culture will be silently undermined by these seven deadly sins. This can leave you feeling frustrated, wondering why your best efforts aren’t getting any traction.
    But it’s incredibly easy to turn a blind eye to these culture killers, especially if they were existing cultural norms when you took over the team in the first place.

    Moment #72: Leading In Organization-Induced Chaos

    Moment #72: Leading In Organization-Induced Chaos

    Moment #72 // It is common in most larger organizations to restructure from time to time, even though these restructures are often ill-conceived. Any value they might yield is dwarfed by the disruption, cost, and uncertainty they create.
    Regardless, you may well be in a position where you have to execute on management intent, which means telling a bunch of people that their roles have been made redundant. In this Moment, I give you my 9 top tips for getting this right.
    If you want to take a deeper dive into how you can navigate the toughest of all execution imperatives, have a listen to Ep.64: Restructures and Redundancies

    Bouncing Back From Major Failures: Not all mistakes are equal

    Bouncing Back From Major Failures: Not all mistakes are equal

    Episode 301 // A lot has been written and said over the years about the necessary role that failure plays in our quest for success. Anyone who has ever been successful, first had to endure (and bounce back from) failure!
     
    It’s easy to reduce this process to a few pithy sayings:

    “Those who dare to fail miserably can achieve greatly!” (John F Kennedy)“Failure is another stepping stone to greatness” (Oprah Winfrey)“The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
    These are all true… and, let’s face it, I’m a big fan of a good mantra to help me keep my head in the right space.
    Then again, there are failures, and there are… failures! Making the little daily mistakes, learning from them, and correcting them is a part and parcel of your growth and development, in any walk of life. 
    If you’re a regular No Bullsh!t Leadership listener, you’ve probably already got a pretty good handle on this process.
    But there are two situations where this doesn’t necessarily hold true:

    When you keep making the same mistake repeatedly; orWhen the failure is so big that it has a deeper effect on your psyche 
    Both scenarios can cause you to lose a tremendous amount of confidence, so working out how to come back from these failures is much harder… and much more important!

    Moment #71: How To Make YOUR Project Fail Proof

    Moment #71: How To Make YOUR Project Fail Proof

    Episode #71 // How often do we hear leaders claim that their project was delivered “on time, and on budget”. This is often wildly misleading, because it depends on your reference point.
    They often neglect to mention how many project delays and budget blowouts occurred before the final targets were set… and they rarely talk about all the features that had to be removed as the project scope shrunk to fit the envelope of available money and time.
    This Moment gives you an overview of the 7 things you need to do to make your projects fail proof.
    If you want to take a deeper dive into how you can achieve predictable success with your next big project, have a listen to Ep.89: Are ALL Projects Doomed?
