    Conflict isn't Bad, Until it is - Thoughts from Kevin

    Conflict isn't Bad, Until it is - Thoughts from Kevin

    If I asked you what your first thought is when I say the word “conflict”, chances are it wouldn’t be positive.
    And while there is certainly a downside to conflict, the truth is conflict isn’t always bad. In fact, there are many times when conflict can be a good thing. And in this episode, I’ll explain exactly this.
    Tweet it out: Conflict isn’t bad until it is. Conflict that allows us to explore perspectives and learn is useful. Conflict that becomes personal isn’t. @KevinEikenberry

    The Five L’s of Empathy - Thoughts from Kevin

    The Five L’s of Empathy - Thoughts from Kevin

    Empathy is something we all look for in other people. We would love for people to have more empathy for us. And when we’re willing to and take the time to be empathetic with others, we gain almost as much as they do. I’m speaking about empathy in general, but I’m also speaking about it specifically as a leader. Because now more than ever, as a leader, being more empathetic is one of the great ways for us to be more effective as a leader.
    And so while there is lots written and stated (much by me even!), today I’m not going to talk about skill as much as the practice of being empathetic. And specifically the five L’s that you can use to help you create a practice of empathy.

Great insights, great guests

I recently listened to Wednesday’s episode with Michelle Reines and she had some great insights into how to be a better leader through mentorship and trust between teams. I love Kevin’s introduction question that set the stage for listeners to understand Michelle’s professional journey including her failures and successes. As a small business owner, taking responsibility for my actions and trying to be the best leader possible is always top of mind in order to expand my business and be as efficient as possible and this episode gave me ideas on how to implement some of the best practices mentioned. Kevin asked thought-provoking questions which allowed Michelle to respond with great detail on her experiences and knowledge - a true testament to his hosting.

Not just for leaders

This is a podcast where you think it will be all "business-y", and yes, it is. But so much of what they cover can be applied to your personal life. The ideas presented, back by research, can really make you re-think the way you conduct your business and your life. Well worth the time.
