    Episode 52 - The Performance Process featuring Gregory Offner

    As leaders we often work towards getting the best FROM our people: Setting expectations, managing deadlines, reviewing performance are all common strategies. But what if it goes far deeper than this? What if maximizing performance really meant developing our people into the BEST PEOPLE they could be, and this in turn would give us the BEST RESULTS? That’s a whole new ballgame. This week’s guest helps us understand this idea. Gregory Offneris one of the most in-demand experts on the topic of professional performance, and navigating disruption. His clients include Fortune 100 companies, and he is often asked to keynote at conferences where industry leaders and executives turn to him for new perspectives on how to elevate performance, eliminate disengagement, and make work suck less. He's also a former Dueling Piano player which makes our discussion even that more entertaining. You HAVE to check this episode out!

    Episode 50 - Leadership Performance Via Emotional Intelligence featuring Mathew Taylor

    In today’s brave new world, the leadership competencies that got the job done in the past are proving to be inadequate. Gone are the days when get the job done by focusing on shareholder value was the measurement of leadership success. Now leaders need to consider employee growth, retention and creating a work environment that fosters learning and growth. But where do these new competencies come from, and as learning leaders how do we begin to think about them and help our leaders grow so they can develop those who serve below them. This week the NERDS are joined by Mathew Taylor. Matt leads the Noble Story Group, a consulting firm that brings an emotional intelligence-based approach to leadership development in education and non-profit organizations. And he discusses how a change in mindset can equip leaders to be successful in today’s climate.
