Building Trust Through Daily Leadership Process
Every service that gets delivered comes down to the management of one thing: people's commitment to each other. Commitment-management is the ONLY thing that can be managed.
The foundation of commitment is trust. And the best way to develop trust is by having a process that allows YOUR TEAM to SEE the work, SEE the performance, and SEE the culture MOVE. When leaders give trust freely through a processes designed to allow for team-based problem solving, they get bigger productivity and commitment in return.
In this short segment, Chris connects the dots of the podcast season and reminds us that process, commitment and trust are wed.
Everything Speaks... Everything is on Purpose... and Everything is your to manage, mismanage, or not manage. There is no excuse; just choice.
Tackling Resistance and Apathy for Change
The two biggest factors that can stop a change initiative in its tracks are resistance and apathy. So how do we begin to surface what people are fearing so we can address it?
In this episode, we talk about how to create a shared urgency in a way that helps leaders learn what the resistance sounds like. In doing so, leaders and project manager are better equipped to manage the change by planning training, early wins, and communication to address the fears.

Engagement and Change
We all fall on a spectrum in terms of how we deal with change. Some of us are ready to jump in... others wait for evidence... and a few will NEVER go along with it. It turns out our patterns with change AND engagement can mirror each other.
This episode explains a simple way to begin assessing your team's engagement and readiness for change. You can download my Engagement Tool that I share in the episode by clicking here or visiting https://www.impactconsultancy.org/the-revolution-1/managing-engagement-and-change
You Can't Achieve Team Goals Without THIS
In order to intentionally and reliably scale culture, you need structure. It doesn't matter if you're scaling a "coaching culture" to a team of 10 people, you still need a "coaching structure" for those people to engage in a reliable experience... frequently... that creates the culture you intend.
Scaling culture comes down to 2 truths in organizations:
1. Structure drives culture. It's a major driver. It drives a daily experience that informs how we act, interact, and think about how we work.
2. Culture needs to drive structure. We all have structure/systems/process in place, but do they create the explicit culture you want?
If you take a close look at why your organization is having a hard time achieving its goals, you might find the root cause is because one of these is missing.
Do you have a reliable way your organization approaches goal-setting, goal execution, and goal reflection? If so, does it drive how you operate? IF SO, are you operating the way YOU DESIGNED (innovative, responsive, strategic, etc.)?

Building a Resilient Mindset
The connection between your leadership and your ability to drive your team's culture can be linked to your resilience. All of us have patterns of behavior that people respond to... we train others how to interact with us. Some patterns sabotage our ability to grow ourselves and our teams.
Today's podcast focuses on limits to our leadership AND how that impacts how we are able or unable to drive team culture. You will learn some surprising truths about how your mind limits your growth... and you will learn how to overcome these limits and build resiliency as a leader.
This is a MUST listen for any new leader, emerging leader, or seasoned leader that wants to grow their potential AND gain insight into driving team culture.
