    Episode 171 | Building Extraordinary Team Culture

    As leaders, we all agree that the culture of our organization--the unique DNA that makes up our team's identity--is crucial. But we don't always know just how to build it in such a way that our culture is healthy, authentic and an environment in which those we lead can thrive. 
    In this week's episode, Jenni Catron illuminates the HOW of building an extraordinary culture among those we lead. She encourages patience as we lead through clarifying purpose and laying the foundation for behaviors that reflect what our organizations truly value. Ultimately, the strategies we employ to accomplish our mission will flow out of these building blocks. With practical examples and stories of culture in action, Jenni will help you lead well as you seek to build an environment of healthy success for your team.

    Episode 170 | 5 Tips for Leading a Hybrid Team

    Episode 170 | 5 Tips for Leading a Hybrid Team

    Did you know that currently over 60% of new hires are requesting flexible work schedules upon interviewing? In the newest report from ADP Research Institute, “two thirds (64%) of the workforce would consider looking for a new job if they were required to return to the office full time.” While the office may still be here to stay - its function may indeed be changing. Because interestingly enough, 87% of employees actually report that one of their top rated needs is to be able to collaborate and build relationships - which typically happens in an office type setting. 

    In this week's episode, Jenni shares five crucial areas you can focus on to promote clarity and consistency within your organization and find success leading in a hybrid culture.

    Episode 169 | Reclaiming Time to Increase Engagement with Jenni Catron & Heath Wilson

    Episode 169 | Reclaiming Time to Increase Engagement with Jenni Catron & Heath Wilson

    According to recent studies, the connection between employee well being and employee engagement are inseparable. Trends show that investment and development of human capital should be our top priority. Healthy employees are more mindful, happier and show higher rates of job satisfaction. Engaged employees show up to work with a bounce in their step, are less distracted and overall are less vulnerable to negative stress. Where engagement is low - morale is low. Where engagement is high - cultures thrive and organizations show 21% greater profitability.
     In this week's episode, Jenni has a conversation with Heath Wilson, Co-Founder of Aro, about how we as leaders and chief vision casters can be more intentional about modeling what it looks like to manage a very real distraction that hinders us from truly seeing our people and leaning into more meaningful interactions with those whom we lead. Heath is passionate about helping leaders, families, and organizations reclaim their time without technology and Aro is his way of doing that. Prior to Aro, Heath’s 20+ year career was primarily spent at eVestment, a financial technology company he co-founded and ultimately sold to NASDAQ in 2017.
    As leaders, we have the ability to set the tone in our cultures by creating new habits and establishing rhythms to increase authentic engagement. Small habits are the building blocks to take you from where you are to where you want to go. In our everyday interactions, it is our responsibility to bend culture and create moments that hold the possibility of quantity for the sake of quality.

Culture Conference is a FREE digital conference, taking place Aug 11th that will provide practical talks from today’s top leaders to help you continue to build thriving teams, cultivate inspiring workplaces, and achieve mission.

    Episode 168 | The Linchpin to Your Success: A Critical Moment for Clarity & Connection with Jenni Catron & Trey McKnight

    More than ever employees are looking to belong and engage in an organization that offers purpose and meaning. Not only are people being attracted to organizations with stronger and clearer cultures, partnering with a mission and vision bigger than themselves, but they are also interested in being a part of a team that encourages their own growth and development.   
    In this week's episode, Jenni has a conversation with 4 Sight Coach Trey McKnight about the critical moment we face to rise up to the challenges proposed in our current climate in order to seize the opportunities we have to invest in what we can control. Trey serves as the Executive Director of Staff Culture and Development at Orange and has worked in ministry for over 20 years with organizations such as: Global Leadership Network, The John Maxwell Company, North Point Ministries, and Chickfila. 
    Amidst a major shift in “How We Work”, it is important that we as leaders consistently take steps to move forward towards creating regular rhythms of communication to increase trust and connection within our organization. Asking clarifying questions, taking the time to listen and recognizing that culture work takes both patience and persistence is worth it and will make your organization stand out among the rest.

    Episode 167 | Own It! : Influencing Culture from Any Seat An Interview with Ed Ollie Jr.

    Episode 167 | Own It! : Influencing Culture from Any Seat An Interview with Ed Ollie Jr.

    It can be frustrating for a high capacity leader when you don’t find yourself in a chief decision making seat. It can be hard figuring out where to show up or how to affect culture. But the truth is culture always exists. You are always influencing culture and culture is always influencing you. However, if we do not become aware of the responsibility that comes with our seat of influence, within that culture, and learn how to calibrate that influence well, we can become passive in our leadership ultimately moving us into a victim mindset.  
    In this week's episode, Jenni has a conversation with Ed Ollie Jr. about how we can effectively lead and affect culture from any seat of influence by asking the questions: “What is the current culture? What am I bringing to the culture? And How do we diagnose the culture to move forward together with clear mission, vision and values?”. Ed graduated with athletic and academic honors in Political Science and Sociology and holds a Masters of Public Administration. Ed enjoys serving on the international board of InterVarsity USA and MOPS and has served as chaplain for the Miami Hurricanes as well as other professional teams. In 1995 New Man Magazine named him one of the "Top Five Young Christian Leaders" in America. In 2020, Ed accepted the position of Campus Pastor of the historic Willow Creek Community Church’s North Shore Campus where he serves as part of the Senior Leadership and Teaching Team.
    For any leader, it is important to take regular inventory of the lanes and roles you can control, in order to positively impact the culture and spaces in which you do have influence over. No matter what position we may hold we can always affect culture positively when we ask ourselves: “What is right? What is true? And What can I do?”
    For a next step, we encourage you to REGISTER for the Culture Conference 2022 hosted by The 4Sight Group. Culture Conference is a FREE digital conference, taking place Aug 11th that will provide practical talks from today’s top leaders to help you continue to build thriving teams, cultivate inspiring workplaces, and achieve mission.

    Episode 166 | When Vision Becomes Reality: The Employee Engagement Funnel

    Episode 166 | When Vision Becomes Reality: The Employee Engagement Funnel

    Great culture is not hard to spot. Culture matters.  It matters for the people you’re trying to reach.  It matters for the people you are trying to lead whether they are staff or volunteers. The environment you create in your organization is either attracting or repelling.  There is rarely a middle ground.  And as leaders we set the tone for the culture.  We have to own it.  We have to steward it.  We have to set it, and we have to maintain it.  
    In this week's episode, Jenni discusses the five steps to the “Employee Engagement Funnel”, reminding us that we don’t drift towards extraordinary culture; it takes time, attention and commitment. When culture is well defined we know “who” we are and “why” we do the work we do.”
    The gaps that exist between “who we want to be” and “what we are” hold the keys of opportunity we have to invest in and develop culture. But if we have not yet done the work to clarify culture we cannot truly determine the health of something that is unclear to begin with. We must create organizational rhythms of cultural inputs that consistently provide a steady reminder of the values, beliefs and behaviors that define our aspirational culture. The more employees are actively engaged in achieving mission…the more compelling your culture will become!
    To dive in deeper, check out our 4Sight: Values Course. In this course, Jenni Catron walks you through how you can begin to define values, beliefs, and behaviors that will become the anchor for everything you do.
