    Where are You Taking the Team Under Your Charge? 

    As a leader, you are responsible for sales, one way or another. In fact, nothing happens in business until a sale has been made. So, are you achieving the income goals, sales goals, or any other big goal you are responsible for? Are you eating their lunch, or are they eating yours? As a leader, it is imperative that you set specific targets and goals for the team to achieve. Each team member must clearly know their responsibility and what expectations have been set for them. The sales process offers great examples of the value of leaders setting direction, determining targets and clarifying goals. Let the team know what they are responsible for achieving and set each individual up for success. Known for his expertise in the sales arena, Anthony Iannarino returns to the Manager Mojo podcast to discuss how to Eat Their Lunch: Winning Customers Away From Your Competition. If you are a leader, this is one episode you won’t want to miss!

    Are You a Good Listener? 

    Be honest. Are you a great listener? Have you mastered the art of asking powerful questions? Do you show respect to team members by delegating and holding them accountable for results? One of the measures of good leadership is the number of successful people who are the result of your leadership. Showing respect for team members and helping them achieve success comes from focused listening of what they desire in their career, asking powerful questions to draw out their best, challenging them through delegation and then holding them accountable for results. It is a life-long challenge for leaders to continually improve their listening skills while developing their ability to ask impactful questions. In this podcast, Steve talks to Fred Halstead, author of Leadership Skills that Inspire Incredible Results, to get his insights on how to recognize weaknesses in listening, questioning, delegation, accountability and more, and how to create improvement in each of those areas.

    How is Energy Affecting Your Leadership?

    Every one of us has a ‘tank’ of energy, both positive and negative. What will you choose to do with yours? It is not woo-woo when I say that everything is made up of energy. It was a discovery of Albert Einstein. As leaders, we should be taking responsibility for not operating out of habit or default, and begin making choices (using our energy) that positively impact our teams, the business, our families and everyone around us. With the responsibility to lead, we have accepted the responsibility of uplifting and doing right by those who follow us. How can you affect everyone around you in a positive way? Elise Auxier joins Steve in this podcast to discuss the various levels of energy, recognizing them and learning to master the positive use of energy.

    Perfect the Art of Asking Beautiful Questions 

    You are a leader. You’ve earned that position because of what you know and how you implement that knowledge. People come to you for answers. Having the answer is great, but so is having the confidence and humility to admit when you don’t. It is impossible to know everything in today’s complex world, but it’s not impossible to find answers to everything when you learn to ask great questions. Successful leaders and business executives need to keep learning. They search for the thing they don’t know and learn to rely on thoughtful, beautiful questions to gain information and arrive at conclusions. One of the best ways to make good decisions, a critical responsibility of leaders, is relying on asking good, insightful questions. Be the leader who approaches every moment of every day with a big (invisible) question mark in front of you. Ask. Learn. Gather data and decide. You will become a more valuable leader and what your questions lead you to will be fascinating – and maybe even financially rewarding!

    SHIFT Happens – Prepare for Your SHIFT and Get on the Path YOU Desire

    Any day is a good time to make a change, yet we routinely look at a New Year as the opportunity to reflect on what we want in life and to make plans for changes in the coming year. Is it time for you to consider a SHIFT in your life? You are a leader in a demanding position of responsibility. Though that can be very gratifying, it can also lead to re-evaluation of what you want in life. Life challenges also happen during that career, and while the job may be fine, life may be calling us to take ownership and responsibility. Issues such as a divorce or death of a loved one can create moments of reflection and the need to consider new paths. SHIFTs are bound to happen in every one of our lives, so grab yours with gusto. Begin this new year by considering the important elements of your SHIFT and get on the path of the life you love. Start with this podcast.

    Your Words Can Create a Highly Engaged Team 

    The words you choose are having a significant impact on the people you lead. Are you choosing words that will inspire others to follow you? Struggling leaders should examine their words, assess where they come from and how they may be putting a damper on the people who follow them. Just like everyone else, leaders default to the words of those who influenced them from a young age. The words we speak to others are often an echo of the words we are speaking to ourselves, and those words were initiated by our original leaders. When we grow up hearing negative words, we often speak negative words ourselves. Examine your words, determine where they come from and how you can select words that will inspire those around you. Become the leader whose words transform others to want to follow you.

Lead better with Steve Caldwell

Steve Caldwell does more than lead an engaging and insightful podcast. There is a purpose to it,
which is to give you tools and experience to improve your leadership—not just in business but in
life. His experience makes him thorough and insightful. As a guest, I can tell you he made me feel
comfortable with thoughtful questions that came from listening. That calm guidance lets a guest
share vulnerabilities that don't come out in typical media interviews. If you want to get to know
the person behind the book or persona, listen to Steve Caldwell.
