    S3 47 | Acceptance as a Revolutionary Act

    S3 47 | Acceptance as a Revolutionary Act

    Sooner or later, all of us will experience betrayals in life. The key isn’t going to the ends of the earth to avoid betrayals altogether. That will never happen. Rather, the key is in learning how to respond to betrayals when they do happen. In this episode, Kari and Paul show how an inability to recover from betrayals poisons our relationships and takes away our ability to act going forward. On the other hand, knowing how to powerfully accept and bounce back from betrayals enables us to move through life with more confidence, more creativity, and more trust.

    S3 46 | Betrayal in the Workplace

    S3 46 | Betrayal in the Workplace

    When we think of a “betrayal,” we often think of an earth-shattering, personally-devastating, stabbed-in-the-back sort of deception. But betrayals come in all shapes and sizes. And failure to acknowledge and deal with the “little betrayals”—such as routine gossip at the water-cooler—can have a huge effect on the state of trust in our organizations. In this episode, Kari and Paul discuss how to spot these minor betrayals, and how to deal with them early on and effectively.

    S3 45 | Setting the Stage for a Trust Culture

    S3 45 | Setting the Stage for a Trust Culture

    How often do we think we are on the same page with our colleagues—only to find out a little (or a lot) later that we had our wires completely crossed? Unclear agreements are incredibly common. In fact, one could say that most of the agreements that we make at work are at least partially unclear. And these unclear agreements don’t just lead to poor performance and inefficiency—they also erode trust in a big way. In this episode, Kari and Paul show you how to design your agreements so that everything is crystal clear, nothing slips through the cracks, and trust is maintained from start to finish.

    S3 44 | Signs and Symptoms Your Are Not Oriented to Bring Trust

    Moods are everywhere! We are always in one mood or another. In a way, they are the background tone of our existence, the lens through which we see the world. In this episode, Kari and Paul look at which moods support trust and which make trust all but impossible to sustain. Although moods have an outsized effect on our daily lives, we are not at their mercy. No matter what mood we find ourselves in, we can always cultivate a new one, one that sets us up for trusting relationships.

    S3 43 | Trust is NOT a Light Switch

    S3 43 | Trust is NOT a Light Switch

    We often think of trust as a binary -- either you have it, or you don’t. Either it’s there, or it isn’t. Like a light switch, we think trust is either “on” or “off,” with nothing in between. This extreme view of trust leads to some extreme behaviors. With a single violation, we can easily write off the possibility of trusting a person ever again. In this episode, Kari and Paul explore a more nuanced approach to trust that serves us in building lasting, authentic, trusting relationships.

Exceptional Insights!

Kari and Paul do a great job of expanding on core leadership principles by breaking them down in a way that you can understand and see them within your own organization.

What I’ve appreciated most is how they then walk you, the listener, through challenges that most leaders face then giving practical ways to work through them. The episode on accountability addressing asking “what” questions vs “why” was especially illuminating and I’ve found it works equally well at home.

Looking forward to season 3!
