    The Best Way To Receive Feedback

    The Best Way To Receive Feedback

    If you want to keep improving, you have to get feedback from others.
    Creating a culture where feedback is encouraged is one of the best things you can do in your organization.
    But how do you deliver feedback? Are you brutally honest? Or do you give soft feedback?
    That’s not the problem.
    The problem lies in how we receive feedback.
    Oftentimes, we take it personally and get very emotional. But that’s not how we should receive feedback.
    Listen in this episode and learn the best way to receive feedback.

    Why Your New Ideas Aren’t Catching On and Why You Need to Leverage Friction Theory To Change That

    Why Your New Ideas Aren’t Catching On and Why You Need to Leverage Friction Theory To Change That

    Have you ever wondered why seemingly good ideas don’t get implemented even though people know they are good ideas? As a leader who wants to introduce a new idea or innovation, it can be challenging to convince people to get on board. 
    Loran Norgren, Professor at the Kellogg School of Management and co-author of the book The Human Element: Overcoming the Resistance That Awaits New Ideas. 
    In this episode, we are going to explore the psychological frictions that oppose change. Where so many leaders are obsessed with focusing on value and features, Loran argues that it’s actually four frictions that stop new ideas from being implemented.

    Is Simon Sinek Wrong About CEOs?

    Is Simon Sinek Wrong About CEOs?

    A few months ago, Simon Sinek made a video where he said the title of CEO needs to go and be replaced by the title of Chief Vision Officer.
    Simon's argument was that for every other role inside of the organization, whether it be the CTO, CHRO, or the CMO, their title basically explains what they do.
    But when it comes to a CEO, most people have no clue what that person does and what that role even means.
    To be honest, I think most people are actually more confused by a title like CHRO than they are by the title of CEO.
    I find that people rarely say they have no idea what a CEO does.
    I don't think the issue is so much that we don't know what a CEO does. The issue is more that we don't keep the CEO accountable for doing what we know they should be doing.
    We know the role of a CEO is to set the vision, guide the organization, put people first, and create a better world and a better organization.
    But do we actually hold CEOs responsible and accountable for doing that?
    That is where I think the bigger problem is.
    Just changing the title isn't going to make much of a difference.

So valuable AND loving the recent 5-8 minutes podcasts

Full disclosure: I am a huge fan of Jacob Morgan's book "The Future Leader" and started listening to his podcasts after reading the book. His is one of a select number of podcasts that I regularly listen to and share links and information on our internal SharePoint site. This morning during my continuous learning/energy break walk I listened to the 7/4/22 "The Secrets of Superbosses and How You Can Become One! with Sydney Finkelstein and loved it! Plus, recently I have found Jacob's short (5-8 minutes or so) podcasts valuable, e.g., 7/6/22 "Four Ways to Elevate Yourself." I appreciate Jacob, his great work, and creating such valuable podcasts!
