    Season 4, Episode 8: What if....businesses recognized that WE is greater than ME?

    Season 4, Episode 8: What if....businesses recognized that WE is greater than ME?

    What if....businesses recognized that WE is greater than ME? with Suzanne Ricard-Greenway, SR Greenway Leadership

    On this episode, we dive on in and learn:


    Feltman's Model of Trust (The Thin Book of Trust)
    The theory, results, and insights on how to build trust via the Absolute Trust System
    Proactively, consciously building trust means anything is possible. When teams trust each other, they OWN mistakes, take accountability, challenge the status quo, etc.
    Trust allows leaders to be engaged and involved with their team
    Trust encourages innovation and creativity because of the synergy it creates for teams to thrive and produce
    Cognitive elaboration grows from trust - this is where the "impossible" solutions begin to happen
    In trusted environments, people love going to work
    Trust breeds the extraordinary
    2 of the 4 pillars of the Absolute Trust System
    Pillar 1: People have different starting points with trust. Some give instantly, others require it be earned, others are somewhere in between
    Pillar 2: Our trust blind spots, meaning what we look for in trust is what we show in trust. Our brain defaults to "what makes sense to me makes sense to you," but this is not always the case (rarely)
    The simplest way to build trust is to ask them what you need to do to build their trust
    Clarity of expectations is crucial to earn or keep your trust. Create the same definition for expectations - finite details matter
    Trust building = transparent, explicit, and detailed communication
    Leaders gain trust from their people by being transparent, reliable, competent, and being an advocate for their people
    Teams who trust each other elevate their level of diversity, connection, and vulnerability. 
    Trust between teams become about the we and not the me of the team
    Trust is what will move teams out of storming, into norming, and all the way to performing

    Season 4, Episode 7: What if....businesses decided to DANCE with innovation?

    Season 4, Episode 7: What if....businesses decided to DANCE with innovation?

    What if....businesses decided to DANCE with innovation? with Dr. Caroline Brookfield, The Reluctant Creative

    On this episode, we dive on in and learn:


    The #1 skill businesses are seeking for their teams
    The difference between big C and little c creativity
    How to access our own creativity beyond the traditional sense of the word
    93% of businesses say they want innovation, but only 18% of people feel safe taking creative risks in their workplace
    The two judgement barriers of creativity - internal and external
    Why rejection feels like physical pain
    How leaders can model creativity while braving judgement
    Why creating a safe space to explore all creative failure is how we get to the “good stuff”
    The practice of creative failing to work our creative muscle
    Benefits of creativity. E.g., higher income, better leadership, more confidence in uncertainty, etc.
    The power of a "literary mullet," fun in the front, data in the back
    The biological facts about creativity
    Creativity is contagious
    Why and how leaders can support teams to step into creativity
    Why we tend to fall back into status quo solutions when feeling uncertain and how creativity can reduce this
    How to redefine creativity within our business teams
    That DANCE helps to democratize creativity in teams (Daydream, Ambiguity, Novelty, Curiosity, and Edit Later)
    The difference between divergent creativity (ideating without judgement) and convergent creativity (distilling divergent creativity)
    Daydreaming = productive boredom
    Tolerance of Ambiguity to build non-status quo solutions
    How Novelty builds more data points for connecting to unique solutions in our brains
    Curiosity is the foundation of all creativity
    Ernest Hemingway was right when he said "Write drunk, edit sober" (separating divergent and convergent creativity)
    Caroline's answer to "What if...businesses realized that they are people too?" (42:46)

So refreshingly honest and insightful!!

I love Lindsay’s insights as you can tell they come from such a deeply personal and meaningful place. There is such purpose in every sentence she shares and the analogies are powerful. You can tell her life experience and branding/content expertise have really shaped her specialty and I can’t wait to learn from all of her knowledge and her interviews going forward. I’m chomping at the bit to apply these thoughts to my own life and work processes.
