The Champion Forum Podcast is dedicated to raising up leaders who know that they are not only called to grow an organization, but to help their team members become the best that they can be. Join Jeff Hancher weekly as he challenges and inspires his listeners to reach their full potential by laying out complex leadership principles in a step-by-step approach.
One of the prices of leadership is criticism. The reality is that you could be doing everything right as a leader and still get criticized. Today’s podcast will address the four steps you need to follow to correctly respond to criticism and address some common pitfalls you should avoid. Remember, it’s not a question of if you will receive criticism; it’s when. Knowing how you will respond to criticism ahead of time will help you protect your personal brand and quickly resolve the issue.
Friendly Not Friends
Creating meaningful relationships in the workplace is key to increasing trust, communication, and effectiveness. However, some leaders take this too far and start becoming friends with their employees. Many leaders wrongly believe that it will make leadership easier. Despite their best intentions, that is simply not the case. In today’s podcast, Jeff will discuss how a leader needs to strike the delicate balance between being friendly and being friends with their employees.
Can't Do vs. Won't Do
I recently had a group discussion with some leaders who were discussing their frustration in dealing with underperformers on their team. Everyone is going to have an underperformer on their team at some point. When you do, you have to know if the problem is that they can’t do their job or they won’t do their job. In today’s episode, we’ll identify why employees can’t or won’t do their job and what you can do to help get them back on track.
