You can create a world-class culture by taking three actions.
    Try this, and you’ll no longer have to push your team to get moving. In fact, you’ll be hustling to keep up with their runaway productivity. Teamwork makes the dream work, and we’ll show you how.

    #079: 3 Habits of Wise Leaders (Encore)

    #079: 3 Habits of Wise Leaders (Encore)

    Good leaders want to do the right thing. But sometimes we can be our own worst enemy. Have you ever made a really dumb choice that cost you a relationship or an opportunity? 
    It’s so discouraging to realize you’ve made an avoidable mistake. It can even make you question your decision making ability. 
    But you can recover. 
    When we see people who seem to always make the best decision, it’s tempting to believe that they’re just smarter than we are, or maybe have a unique gift. Not true! Nobody is born wise. 
    The good news is that wisdom is a trait you can acquire. 
    Over a lifetime of practice (and the mistakes to go with it) we’ve distilled our learning into 3 habits that wise leaders consistently practice. 
    Put these habits to work for you, and you’ll begin to see a huge difference. You’ll avoid the regret and disappointment that come with repeated failure. Your decision making will improve, you’ll make better choices, and you’ll become the respected leader you aspire to be.
    Once you’ve listened to this episode, ask yourself this key question: “In what area of my leadership am I most reluctant to receive honest feedback from others, especially those closest to me?” 
    Your answer will indicate the primary place to apply what you’ve learned here. When you do, you’ll be well on your way to wisdom.

    #124: The One Trait You Need to Lead Through Crisis

    When you’re leading through a crisis, it can feel like you’re making it up as you go along. You’re reacting to a new set of circumstances almost every day, and you never have all the facts. Are people following you? Are they doubting your authority? It’s unnerving.
    Based on leading through crises large and small, we’ve learned one valuable lesson: Your primary leadership capital is not your authority, it’s you. When people trust you, they will follow you. And we can show you the five assets you need to develop in order to build that trust.

    How to develop empathy if it’s not in your wheelhouse. Practical tips for learning and growing in your appreciation for your teammates’s experiences. Why candor is important (and necessary) in your approach to communication. Times when being overly-optimistic can actually hurt you—and what to do instead. What you must do for your team when changes have to be made. The one thing you must have if you expect your team to continue following you through crisis.
