    The Way to Get Noticed by Key Stakeholders, with Daphne E. Jones

    The Way to Get Noticed by Key Stakeholders, with Daphne E. Jones

    Daphne E. Jones: Win When They Say You Won't

    Daphne E. Jones has 30 years of experience in general management and executive level roles at IBM, Johnson & Johnson, Hospira, and General Electric but began her career as a secretary. At GE, she served as Senior Vice President for Future of Work, Senior Vice President & Chief Information Officer for Product Engineering, Imaging, and Ultrasound, and as Senior Executive & Chief Information Officer for Global Services, all of which composed a $13 billion segment of GE Healthcare.



    She serves on the board of directors for AMN Healthcare, Inc., Barnes Group Inc., and Masonite International Corp. She is the recipient of numerous domestic and international awards and recently started a company that teaches leaders how to prepare to serve on boards. She is the author of Win When They Say You Won't: Break Through Barriers and Keep Leveling Up Your Success*.



    In this conversation, Daphne invites us to look at ourselves through the lens of a product, just as others will view us. We discuss the three critical elements of how stakeholders view you. Plus, Daphne and I explore the steps you can take to improve how you’re perceived through the different lenses that stakeholders see us through.

    Key Points



    Stakeholders are crucial for your success and it’s helpful for you to view yourself in their eyes (and yours) as a product.

    Three elements are key: performance is doing your job well, image is how people describe you, and exposure is who knows you.

    When you get radio silence in the context of happenings inside of your organization, that’s an indicator you are underexposed. Caution: you can also be overexposed.

    Map your stakeholders in the context of their influence in your work and their interest in how it support their own objectives.

    Mentors will make suggestions of things you should try. Find the part that will work for you and move on the advice.

    How to Lead Better Through Complexity, with Jennifer Garvey Berger

    How to Lead Better Through Complexity, with Jennifer Garvey Berger

    Jennifer Garvey Berger: Unleashing Your Complexity Genius

    Jennifer believes that leadership is one of the most vital renewable resources in the world. She designs and teaches leadership programs, coaches senior teams, and supports new ways of thinking about strategy and people. In her three highly acclaimed books, Unlocking Leadership Mindtraps, Simple Habits for Complex Times (co-authored with Keith Johnston), and Changing on the Job, she builds on deep theoretical knowledge to offer practical ways to make leaders’ work more meaningful and their lives more fun. She has worked with senior leaders in the private, non-profit, and government sectors around the world with organizations like Novartis, Google, KPMG, Intel, Microsoft, Wikimedia, and the New Zealand Department of Conservation.



    Jennifer also supports executives one-on-one as a leadership coach. Over the last decade, she has developed the Growth Edge Coaching approach. She supports clients to find their current growing edge and then make choices about how they want to develop. She teaches coaches around the world transformational and developmental coaching approaches in her Growth Edge Coaching certification series. Jennifer speaks at leadership and coaching conferences, and she offers courses for coaches at universities all over the world. She is the co-author with Carolyn Coughlin of Unleash Your Complexity Genius: Growing Your Inner Capacity to Lead*.



    In this conversation, Jennifer and I discuss the reality that most of us don’t like uncertainty. That makes experimenting with new ideas and actions in complex environments very challenging. We uncover several practices that can help us benefit from experimentation in the midst of complexity and grow from these experiences.

    Key Points



    Complicated situations are hard, but have a clear answer (such as how to send humans to the moon). In contract, complex situations are dynamic; yesterday’s answer may not work tomorrow.

    Most of us really dislike complexity, to the extent that that people with terminal diseases are happier than those who will likely recover.

    Step-by-step approaches don’t work in very complex situations. Instead, take action through thoughtful experimentation.

    When experimenting, release your attachment to outcomes.

    Lean into humility and don’t shy away from endings. Putting end dates on experiments helps us move forward — and sometimes remove what isn’t working.

    How to Solve the Toughest Problems, with Wendy Smith

    How to Solve the Toughest Problems, with Wendy Smith

    Wendy Smith: Both/And Thinking

    Wendy Smith is the Dana J. Johnson Professor of Management and faculty director of the Women’s Leadership Initiative at the Lerner College of Business and Economics, University of Delaware. She earned her PhD in organizational behavior at Harvard Business School, where she began her intensive research on strategic paradoxes—how leaders and senior teams effectively respond to contradictory, yet interdependent demands. She has received the Web of Science Highly Cited Research Award for being among the 1 percent most-cited researchers in her field and received the Decade Award from the Academy of Management Review for the most cited paper in the past 10 years.



    Her work has been published in such journals as Academy of Management Journal, Administrative Science Quarterly, Harvard Business Review, Organization Science, and Management Science. She has taught at the University of Delaware, Harvard, and Wharton while helping senior leaders and middle managers all over the world address issues of interpersonal dynamics, team performance, organizational change, and innovation. She is the author with Marianne Lewis of Both/And Thinking: Embracing Creative Tensions to Solve Your Toughest Problems.



    In this episode, Wendy and I discuss the dangers of either/or thinking and how that tendency limits our effectiveness. We explore how to shift to both/and thinking in order to resolve the most challenging problems. Plus, we share key tactics that will help us do this in more practical ways.

    Key Points



    Framing a decision as an either/or will often minimize short-term anxiety, but limits creative and innovative long-term possibilities.

    While easy to see both/and opportunities for others, we’re likely to approach things as either/or when it’s ourselves. An outside perspective from someone who’s not emotionally connected is helpful.

    Changing the question we are asking is the most powerful to navigate paradoxes.

    Moving up a level when facing tough decisions can help us see the big picture.

    Consider shifting from “making a choice” to “choosing” in order to lead us towards better outcomes.

    The Power of Courage in Leadership Growth, with Jorge Alzate

    The Power of Courage in Leadership Growth, with Jorge Alzate

    Jorge Alzate

    Jorge Alzate is a senior R&D manager at PepsiCo, an active leader in Toastmasters, and an alum of the Coaching for Leaders Academy. In this conversation, Jorge and I discuss what brought him to the podcast, how he utilized the Academy to help his career move forward, and the critical nature of courage for leadership growth.

    Key Points



    One action a day (the blue marbles for Jorge) is the way to create a new habit that can develops into a skill.

    Accountability is key to move us forward, even if it does not feel comfortable in the moment.

    Courage is the ability to act in spite of fear — and almost always necessary before confidence.

    How to Help Team Members Find the Right Work, with Patrick Lencioni

    How to Help Team Members Find the Right Work, with Patrick Lencioni

    Patrick Lencioni: The 6 Types of Working Genius

    Patrick Lencioni is founder and president of The Table Group, a firm dedicated to protecting human dignity in the world of work, personal development, and faith. Pat’s passion for organizations and teams is reflected in his writing, speaking, executive consulting, and most recently his three podcasts, At the Table with Patrick Lencioni, The Working Genius Podcast, and The Simple Reminder.



    Pat is the author of twelve best-selling books with over seven million copies sold. After twenty years in print, his classic book The Five Dysfunctions of a Team remains a weekly fixture on national best-seller lists. He has been featured in numerous publications, including the Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, USA Today, Inc. magazine, and Chief Executive magazine. He is the author of The 6 Types of Working Genius: A Better Way to Understand Your Gifts, Your Frustrations, and Your Team.



    Many of us have heard the invitation from Jim Collin’s book Good to Great to get the right people on the bus. But once the right people are on the bus, how to do you find the right seat for each person? On this episode, Pat and I discuss how to utilize the Working Genius model to find the right work for the right team members.

    Key Points



    When addressing burnout, the type of work someone does is more significant than the volume of work.

    Three stages of work are present for almost every team: ideation, activation, and implementation.

    A cup of coffee in an excellent thermos can stay hot an entire day — that’s true of us when we’re aligned with our working geniuses.

    Finding the right work for a team member is far easier than finding the right person culturally. Before you look elsewhere, be sure they are in the right seat.

    To fill gaps in your team’s geniuses, you can hire, borrow, or find people where competence will suffice for now. Resist the temptation to immediately jump to hiring.
