The Real Meaning Of Diversity — Author Interview With Justin Jones-Fosu
The word “diversity” comes up a lot in discussions around workplace culture and decorum, but few of us truly understand what it means. We think of the big three—gender, race, sexuality—and forget about all the other differences that make us truly diverse. Because that’s really what it’s all about: difference. And it’s the work of all of us to learn how to engage and collaborate with people no matter how different from us they are. In this episode of the Team Success podcast, Shannon Waller interviews successful entrepreneur, diversity coach, and best-selling author Justin Jones-Fosu about his latest book, The Inclusive Mindset, where he shares practical tips, insightful stories, and plenty of wisdom about how to practice inclusivity, why it’s so important, and how it can bring renewed meaning to your life and to the lives of those around you.
The Importance Of Core Values
Every entrepreneur dreams of having a company that manages itself—of being able to leave the office feeling confident that their team can make decisions that will benefit the company without needing to ask permission first. But that’s not often the reality. The thing is, your company and your team are only as strong as your core values. The more clearly you can articulate exactly how people need to show up, work together, and interact with clients, the more freedom they have to make decisions on their own. In this episode of the Team Success podcast, Shannon Waller walks you through the importance of communicating your core values, the effect it has on company culture and team behavior (especially in today’s remote work culture), and some expert tips on finding yours.
The Exponential Impact Of AI — Interview with Evan Ryan
For many us, the phrase “Artificial Intelligence” conjures up images of a bleak, joyless future where machines have taken over and humans have to fight for their place in the workforce. But that’s the Hollywood version of AI, not the reality. The fact is, AI can significantly improve the lives of your team members—and your overall business growth. And according to Evan Ryan, the entrepreneur dedicated to helping businesses achieve faster, better results using AI, it’s actually the hidden secret to leveraging the best of your team’s skills and improving overall efficiency, productivity, and innovation.
Power Vacuums And Dominant Personalities: Why Successful Entrepreneurs Know When To Step In—And When To Take A Step Back
Dominant, decisive, doer: Does this sound like you? If you’re like most entrepreneurs, you want things done and you want them done now, and if no one steps up to the plate, you can’t help leaping in … whether you’ve got the necessary expertise or not. In this episode of the Team Success podcast, Shannon Waller explores what it means to have a driver-type personality, how it can hinder performance (and decrease results), AND what to do about it.
The Importance Of Teaching Your Team Members To Think Collaboratively — Author Interview with Jill Young
In order to build a Self-Managing Company®, you need self-managing team members, and that starts with you. It starts with empowering your team to think critically, react creatively, and work collaboratively. In this episode of the Team Success podcast, Shannon Waller interviews EOS Implementer®, coach, and best-selling author Jill Young on her latest book, The Thinking Advantage: Four Essential Steps Your Team Needs to Cultivate Collaboration, Leverage Creative Problem-Solving, and Enjoy Exponential Growth, where she shares her four-step process for teaching your team members the skills and mindsets they need to confidently support you and your business.
The Value Of Relationships In A Virtual World
In this new era of remote work, building and maintaining relationships can feel almost impossible. But it’s also more important than ever. It’s strong relationships, not simple transactions, that make for a fulfilled, connected, and productive team—and happy clients. In this episode of the Team Success podcast, Shannon Waller walks you through her best strategies for staying connected in a virtual world and discusses why this is so important, not only for the health of your team members and business, but your own too.
