This world needs Truly Human Leadership.

    THL Refresher: Teaching Empathetic Listening to College Students

    THL Refresher: Teaching Empathetic Listening to College Students

    Listening is not always a dedicated subject in educational curriculums. 
    Think about it. There are speech classes, debate teams. You don't hear much about listening classes. That's why it's one of the foundational leadership classes taught in Barry-Wehmiller's internal university. We teach our people to "listen like leaders." It not only affects their relationships at work and with customers, but it has been shown to have a pround affect at home with their families, friends and neighbors. 
    On this podcast, you'll hear how those teachings are being integrated into college curriculum by Lisa Waite, a professor in communication studies at Kent State University. Lisa teaches a course titled Business and Professional Communication. On this episode she discusses incorporating Barry-Wehmiller's empathetic listening curriculum and CEO Bob Chapman's TEDx talk into her college courses, as well as the effect it has had on her students and their leadership skills.

    The Ripple Effect of Leadership with Laurie Butz, CEO of Capital Credit Union

    The Ripple Effect of Leadership with Laurie Butz, CEO of Capital Credit Union

    Laurie Butz is the President and CEO of Capital Credit Union, a credit union with more than 120,000 members in northeast Wisconsin.
    And we at Barry-Wehmiller definitely consider Laurie part of our extended family.
    Laurie’s husband, Dennis, worked for many years for our Paper Converting Machine Company, or PCMC, based in Green Bay, WI, part of our BW Converting group of companies.
    Our CEO, Bob Chapman, has been privileged to be part of Laurie’s leadership journey. And Laurie has enlisted Bob and Cynthia Chapman’s non-profit, Chapman Foundation for Caring Communities, to bring our leadership training into her organization. Laurie is also working with the Chapman Foundation on a very special initiative in Green Bay, where Capital Credit Union is based.  
    As we always say at the beginning of this podcast, the way we lead impacts the way people live. It’s one of the driving forces behind the importance of practicing what we call Truly Human Leadership. On this podcast, we’re going to tie all our common threads together as we talk to Laurie about the ripple effect of Truly Human Leadership in her life at home and, consequently, her own leadership journey.

    Teaching Human Skills in Primary and Secondary Education

    Teaching Human Skills in Primary and Secondary Education

    On several episodes of this podcast, you’ve heard about Barry-Wehmiller’s efforts to transform how business education is taught. If you want leaders who have the skills and courage to care, that should be part of their education before they are out in the world and in positions of responsibility.
    But what if we can reach people before they are in business school? What if these skills of Truly Human Leadership are taught alongside history, math, science and grammar in primary and secondary education? It could make an amazing difference in our neighborhoods and communities and in the future of our world.
    This has become a focus of our CEO, Bob Chapman, and to kick-start this effort, we recently hosted a very important group of friends and allies at our St. Louis office to reflect on the purpose of education and formulate a vision to inspire our efforts as we begin in earnest. An “education summit,” if you will.
    On this podcast, we’re going to feature a collage of takeaways from that special day from Anne White of Chapman Foundation for Caring Communities, David-Aaron Roth of Charlotte Latin School and Sarah Bennison of the Mattering Movement.

    A Transformative Partnership for Teaching Leadership in Business Education

    A Transformative Partnership for Teaching Leadership in Business Education

    If you want to change the way people lead, maybe you should go to the source of where they’re taught to lead – business schools. Maybe the way we teach people to lead should change.
    Christopher Reina is the Founding and Executive Director of the Institute for Transformative Leadership and an Associate Professor in the Department of Management and Entrepreneurship at Virginia Commonwealth University.
    Chris came into our orbit at Barry-Wehmiller a number of years ago. Our relationship with Chris blossomed into a partnership at Virginia Commonwealth University, spearheaded by our Director of Outreach, Brian Wellinghoff, who is now their Executive in Residence.

    Chris has also recently published a paper in the Academy of Management Review, titled “Humanistic Organizing: The Transformative Force of Mindful Organizational Communication,” that lays out a framework for businesses to transform into more people-centered organizations where individuals feel valued and a strong sense of belonging. And it features Barry-Wehmiller as one of its case studies.
    On this podcast, we’re bringing Chris and Brian together to talk about the partnership at VCU to transform the way leadership is taught.

REFRESHING podcast: fresh air + fresh thinking

As a podcast host myself, I'm pretty picky about what podcasts I listen to. In my book, the conversations on Everybody Matters are insightful and engaging, but more than that, they are encouraging.

I'd give it 10 stars if that was an option. Keep spreading the love and the word that Everybody Matters.

A terrible company

I am so sad that they keep pushing these ideas when they are really all about the money. Their management would sell their employees out to make a buck. They make it sound good, but I know from experience that they are bad people.
