    The Importance of Active Listening

    The Importance of Active Listening

    Recently, analysts and media outlets – including our podcast – have talked a lot about the "Great Resignation" in the wake of the pandemic. And while those are worthy discussions, the truth is that workplaces and employee perceptions have been shifting for quite a while now.
    Consultants and freelancers – those of us who have worked alongside a wide range of employers and business leaders over the course of decades – share unique insight into how the working world has changed, and what we can learn from those changes as we move further into this new, uncharted landscape we find ourselves in.
    Today we sit down with Lorraine Margherita, an organizational consultant, speaker, and sought-after freelancer who has worked with thousands of managers and leaders over the years, to discuss her own professional journey, and what it’s taught her.
    In this episode we talk about the essence of diverse teams, bringing everyone to the table to solve complex problems. Modern organizations should try to increase diversity, beyond acknowledging gender differences. Diversity can be about age, ethnicity, where you’re from, where you grew up, skills, experience, education, and much more. At Management 3.0, we have a practice named 'The Diversity Index.' This easy tool can help your team and organization acquire insight into how high its current diversity level is. A downloadable template is available on our website.

    Getting Unstuck Through the Power of Reframing

    Getting Unstuck Through the Power of Reframing

    There are so many obstacles that can prevent us from being happy at work, from salaries and commutes to incompatible teams and weird smells from the break room kitchen.
    But some of the most difficult challenges aren’t external at all. We carry them with us from home, to the office, and back home again. These are intensely personal things like uncertainty, doubt, self-criticism, or the many varieties of fear.
    Today we sit down with Lia Garvin, a renowned author, operations leader, and sought-after speaker who has worked with some of the most influential companies in tech, including Microsoft, Apple and Google.
    Garvin joins host Elisa Tuijnder to discuss some unique approaches for moving beyond those internal obstacles, and using them as the foundation of a new, happier, and more satisfying career.
    Want to learn more about redirecting your own feelings? Check out the Management 3.0 module on Emotional Intelligence, where we look into how understanding our own emotions can make us more effective and successful managers and leaders.

    Harmonious Work Environments and How to Achieve Them

    Harmonious Work Environments and How to Achieve Them

    It’s been called many things, but most famously, The Great Resignation. But however we refer to the massive shift away from traditional 9-5 office roles in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the result is the same. How we view work – and how we view ourselves as workers and managers – has been fundamentally changed. Forever.
     
    For leaders, it’s not enough to adapt to these changes. We need to understand why they happened and what employees are trying to tell us. Today on the podcast, we’re going to explore that shift together with Bonnie Low Kramen, dive into what it means for workplace satisfaction, and examine how leaders and employers can improve experiences for their workers in meaningful, lasting ways.
     
    Management 3.0 has many resources when it comes to new ways of working - maybe you would like to check out our Remote Teams module?

I love this show!

This is a podcast where you think it will be all "business-y", and yes, it is. But so much of what they cover can be applied to your personal life. The ideas presented, back by research, can really make you re-think the way you conduct your business and your life. Well worth the time.

In Search of Happiness

Great conversations about the best ways in which to create and cultivate meaningful, purposeful work.

Great interviews on how to create a happier workplace culture

This is a podcast I’ve been looking for. When it comes to the workplace, so many of us are stressed, or we don’t feel valued and appreciated. In fact, 79% of people who quit a job cite a lack of appreciation as the #1 reason. That’s why I love this podcast. It contains interviews and practical tips on how to create a workplace that’s more connected, engaged and happy!
