    Both/And Thinking, A New Way To Solve Your Toughest Problems & Transform Your Company

    Both/And Thinking, A New Way To Solve Your Toughest Problems & Transform Your Company

    Wendy Smith received her Ph.D. from Harvard Business School and is now a Professor of Leadership at the University of Delaware's Lerner College of Business and Economics, as well as the co-founder of the Women's Leadership Initiative. She is interested in how leaders and organizations deal with continuing strategic contradictions such as those between today and tomorrow, global integration and local adaptation, social mission, and financial performance.
    What are Wendy’s thoughts on “either/or” and “both/and” thinking? What does it mean for leaders to embrace paradoxes? Listen in as Wendy, and I discuss attitude shifts, leadership insights, and why paradoxes exist to help leaders be better leaders!

    Leadership Isn't About Big Crazy Transformations

    Leadership Isn't About Big Crazy Transformations

    Leadership is oftentimes equated with transformation. But transformation isn't something that happens overnight. Transformation is something that takes a long time.
    It’s the small things that you do over time that will lead to great impact.
    Here are small things that you can do to be a better leader:
    1. Recognize your team members - it can be as simple as saying thank you.
    2. Put together diverse teams.
    3. Practice self care - you need to take care of yourself so that you can in turn, take care of others.
    4. Practice empathy - putting yourself in somebody else's shoes and perspectives and then responding based on that.
    5. Take time to be curious.
    6. Be sure you are listening instead of just hearing your people.

    The Servant Mindset Is Not Servant Leadership. Here's Why

    The Servant Mindset Is Not Servant Leadership. Here's Why

    The servant mindset is one of the four most crucial mindsets that current and aspiring leaders need to master.
    It's all about serving four groups:
    Your leaders - serving your leaders means having a good relationship with them. Do whatever you can to make their lives easier.
    Your customers - it's about making life a little bit harder on yourself so that it's easier on your customers. Go above and beyond to surprise and delight your customers so they would love to come back and even become your own brand evangelists
    Your team - whether it's recognizing them, whether it's removing obstacles from their path, whatever it is, ask yourself, what can you do on an ongoing basis to help make those around you more successful, even if they become more successful than you.
    Yourself - this is what most of us forget about. Practicing self-care will enable you to show up to work every day, at your best, ready to serve others.

I don't want a nickname173529 ,

New format isn’t good

I’ve been listening since 2016. Used to be totally free. No ads. The he changed the format. New intro song and some other tweaks. He added ads to the podcast. I wasn’t mad about that. Most pods have ads.
The most recent change to the pod still has ads but also cuts the last 15 minutes off and he wants you to pay to hear the rest.
Honestly I’d be ok if there were another set of ads and I can listen to the last 15 minutes. But I’m not going to get the subscription.
I like the content and the show. That’s why I’ve been listening for so long. I remember when the show had the dogs in the background more often or the show was actually in a coffee shop. My favorite episode was with Marshell Goldsmith.
I hope the format changes and I can get the last 15 minutes back. If not, I’ll unsubscribe.

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!
